Announcement ~ Super Robot Wars Alpha!! Super Robot Wars Alpha
# Posted on March 7th, 2007 03:35 PM by Gideon ZhiI´m making this post not only to announce the SRW Alpha project, but to also announce that its script is already nearly 90% complete - that´s six megabytes of text! Some sample screenshots are up on its project page.
The translation was by Tyria (even more of a robot than I am); as usual, his writing is quite accurate but makes for horrid reading, so we´re taking pains to get it proofed and polished up for public consumption. No estimates on how long this will take, sorry.
Announcement ~ Welcome to the new Aeon Genesis!# Posted on March 7th, 2007 02:49 PM by Gideon ZhiWe have, as I´m sure you can tell, undergone some substantial changes. The website is still not 100% functional, but the core works - current news and projects, at least. Old news will probably end up in html files linked from somewhere (possibly another news post.)
The new site is great! It´s all PHP-powered for ease of updating, it´s a hell of a lot cleaner server-side than the old one, and we even have some fun new things like the Random Completed Project pane on your right and the randomized banner up at the top of each page. The title quote rerandomizes on each page, as well!
Most importantly, however, is that the new system allows me to grant posting accounts to other people (translators, utility writers, script proofers, what-have-you.) This will be the first time that other voices will be heard on the front page, and I´m very, very excited about it! The old setup made it seem like Aeon Genesis was just me - and while I am the primary hacker for nearly all of our projects (La-Mulana being the exception) the truth of the matter is that there are a lot of other people working with me to help get these games to the masses.
So yes, welcome to the new Aeon Genesis! Do be sure to thank Datschge of SNESMusic.org and satsu for their help with the PHP and CSS! I appreciate the aid very, very much! The annual release will occur later today. (Sorry to disappoint, but the release is not a Super Robot War.)
