I woke up this morning to the unfortunate conclusion that my concept artist was no where to be found. He has the drawings for the second boss. I still have to get a scanner hooked up to the new PC, but I'll have it up soon enough.
So I started work programming the first boss fight. He runs on a fixed routine around the screen, which is what I'm pushing through now. It's a little tedious, and to calculate everything so that each movement is percise, and it retains it's recursiveness is going to be pretty tough. Infact, between this sentance and the last, I spent about 25 minutes tweaking two jumps he makes.
I am, however, thankful that I can be working on such a fine computer. Take a look at the desktop:
Yes, it's completely gorgeous. I've never touched a computer this good in my life.
It's so good to be programming again, too. I forgot how much I love doing it. It's just so fulfilling; such a rush. And what with work being done, I just have such incredible amounts of time to do it.
So anyhow, off to write more boss routines.
PS: If one of you out there has a game or a demo I should be playing, leave a comment. I'll be sure to grab it since the new comp can run it.
