Ugh ... so many sprites to input. Since all of the frames are inputted into the system by hand, it is really annoying. I don't have an edit that easily does it with GUI interfath. All of the animations need coordinates, timing, etc. That's why it is sucking my life force.
I'm really worried about that deadline. I said earlier that the person who had volunteered to compose had dropped out, so Jon (who had done all of the music so far and the trailer music) will pick it up from here. Though I wanted to compensate him montarily so I'm back in debt again ... Sigh. Well, most importantly it will be done.
I think the biggest setback is it took awhile for me to find someone who will create the large scale system. It really isn't a Suikoden clone because it has to be more complicated. There are a lot more of these battles than there were in Suikoden, but not enough to base the entire game around it like Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem or Ogre Tactics. A lot of the game is really like ... "Anthropology"? Observing and finding out more about the world you live in. Running across people and learn about their lives in different arcs. Like a runaway named Tabitha.
I'm glad I finally found reliable people. It took me so long but that deadline is stressing me out so much. I feel so bad for pushing it again.
I've been replacing a lot of old graphics for newer and better ones as well.
