That is correct, both Szemi and I are working on this project, a continuation of Dr Villain's Mort beta.

I have done most of Episode 1 (With level input from Levellord and others.) and Szemi has done Episode's 2&3 (With some beta testing and patches by me.) With luck these should be released before the end of the week.

That title screen of doomship dilemma looks like like it was done by a professional.

Now that I used some tiles from that beta (I thought nobody cared anymore) it's finally being finished. :o

I think she's aware of that. One thing to tease Germans is to call them Dutch.

Sooo.... Am I German, then? :dopekeen


About the series... What's with the huge difference in quality between episode 1 and episodes 2 and 3? The first episode's title screen looks AWESOME in that screenshot...
Wow look at me I'm lurking

You could:

- Lose the generic Windows system font and replace it with either something pixelled by hand or at least a nice font (maybe look on the net).
- Try using more and/or different colors.
- Change it sufficiently to have people actually pay attention to it, but don't make it an inexplicable mess by adding random sprites here and there.
- Well, don't just put the picture of HALF a Dopefish in there... The clipping really looks awkward.

OR:
- Pixel the entire screen by hand instead, to get the nice effect that pic 1 had on me: complete, attractive custom art for a new mod's title screen.

No, I keep forgetting that location thing. It's just that an insult to the dutch here is 'tulip sucker' so tulip and dutch are forever entwined in my memory.

Episode 1 is mostly mine (Well, where it's not Dr Villain's), I did all the graphics in it. The other two are mostly Szemi's, I only did patching and sounds. It's just the difference in our styles, and I am sure his works will be wonderful. As it is, my episode is half-baked and slightly rushed. You can tell.

Haha, really? Never even heard of it before until now. :lol I think one has to be offended VERY EASILY in order to be offended by something like THAT.

Ahh, I see! You should do a title screen for the other episodes too, if you can find the time. :dopekeen
