Update #7

Status Update

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to give y'all a little status update.  The download is now fixed, for anyone who's been having trouble -- I shuffled files around a few days ago on the server and forgot to repost the link.  Cody has done up a bunch of nice models for the game, and I've been working on getting the engine to render 'em correctly...  Right now the poor little dorf is quite discombobulated... =/

Still hoping to get a new Alpha for Monday the 29th -- but in the meantime, here are a few of the models to check out.

Also, to those who have wondered about the TGA format for textures -- the file has to be uncompressed, and use the top left corner as the origin.  I usually use Gimp to do 'em, and that gives the option...

      Just wondering when/if a mac version will be available. Guess I was naive to assume it would exist off the bat. Perhaps it should be written somewhere that it is PC only for now?

      Great concept, I'm eagerly awaiting a version I can try!
