Well.  Jedi Nescioquis has decided that he's not interested in modding BoE.  He says he'd rather mod Geneforge.  So, I'm stuck with an un-completed mod.  Of course, I'm still planning to finish the graphics conversion and just use basic BoE scripting, but that will almost certainly rule out any of the advanced features we were hoping to do.  He says that if I can get at least 5 scenarios made with it by other people, then he'll help me make it better, but until then I'm on my own. 

  I've also got some Easter graphics to make for our cupcake decorations blog, and I'm still hoping to get in on Dahak's contest.  So, between those projects, the graphics conversion, and writing, Archipelago is pretty much being abandoned.  And I'm away most weekends, working, so no free time to work on any of those then.  Basically, I'm beginning to think that Archipelago may never be finished, and that my wonderful idea for a 'cool' BoE mod will come to naught. 

  Then again, it might just be mid-winter depression setting in again.

  In either case, I could use a bit of encouragement.  I think I'll go finally start reading Episode 4.  I'm sure it'll cheer me up.



Archipelago is still progressing slowly.  I seem to have hundreds of ideas, and no idea how to use them.  I'm out of nodes in one important town, and still have a huge dialog-multiple choice, depending on what you do, that is really necessary, but I haven't done anything on yet.

Our other project isn't progressing that well either... Jedi Nescioquis is too busy with his other projects to be much help, so I'm still trying to get the graphics converted, without any actual progress. 

The mod is also sort of on hold (except the graphics conversion, which I'm still doing) until he figures out if he can re-compile it successfully from the source code, which would allow us to make it an actual mod, not just BoE with the graphics messed up.  The only problem is that, due to the completeness of the graphics conversion, this mod will be completely incompatible with any scenarios not made with it, and and any scenarios will be incompatible with the original BoE.

So, progress is still not really being made, and the mod may never be finished. (At least that's that's what Jedi Nescioquis says.)  It doesn't really matter.  I doubt that anyone would really use it, though it would be extremely cool (in my opinion).

Well, back to the old graphic conversion, I guess.
