Yesterday saw a sad event, I'm no longer a part of The Lost City of Malathedra. A combination of my inability to do decent modeling (consistently anyway) and map-texture painting, and the fact that my heart just wasn't in it. I would have loved to have stayed on, but I think it'll be better for the game this way. It wasn't really a "you're fired" or "I quit" situation; we talked it over and came to the conclusion that I just wasn't the person for the job.

Not really anything that could make up for the bad news, but a bit of good news will help. I'll be picking MalykAI back up and hopefully we'll be seeing some progress. To start off, lets see if you can figure out what this is:

I'll be working on finishing the GUI first so I can make a really nice looking menu system as well as in-game editor. To those that are interested, just like before, the source code will be available once I'm finished.

    Feature list:
  • Label
  • Button
  • CheckBox (2 styles - box and button)
  • TextBox
  • GroupBox
  • RadioButton (2 styles - circle and button)
  • DragBar (Will be used as scrollbars as well)
  • UpDownCounter
  • UpDownTypeScroller
  • ListBox
  • DropDownList
  • Tab controls
  • Menus (normal and context)
  • Split Button
  • Animated cursors
  • Drag and drop


Also, as you can see I've changed my theme again. The old one seemed chopped together (well, it was, but that's beside the point), so I made one to match the theme of my upcoming web-design for dft.com.

As for "the cool thing"; it'll have to wait. I've worked on it, but my shaders aren't cooperating so there's nothing to show at the moment, but I'll be working on it and I'll get some screenshots up ASAP.

Yea, it's pretty unfortunate, but the spot was just too hard for me to fill. Don't worry though, Raymond will finish Malathedra.

I can tell you where you got your GUI artwork, website maby?


I wouldn't be surprised if I've seen something similar before, but I just came up with it a few minutes ago.

Sorry to hear your news about EDI but don't lose heart. You've clearly got a lot of passion and talent for programming and I'm glad that your reaction is to immediatley pick up one of your own projects again.

Keep the MalykAI (can't spell it [smile]) news coming. And the "cool thing" suspense is still killing me here.
