thanks to him we've completed all of the base area maps for the first island.
however since I had to teach him how to use the system it whittled down the time I had to work on the topic menu and the inventory menu.
Couple that with the fact I had some real trouble trying to get my UI projection matrix working properly, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Since sundays are ususaly pretty filled for me lately, friday night and all day staturday is for power-coding.
When all was said and done I managed to get the background image on-screen for the topic menu (which is considerably harder to do in 3D than in 2D =/) pretty lame =/
so I definetly need to pick up the pace =/
