Not much going on.
Beta-tested the new Emulaxian, as noted. It’s quite good. I may post a JPG of my cute Furniture Warriors menu interface. I’m also writing new documentation for it, since the author of the program can’t construct a coherent paragraph to save his life. ^_^; Anybody who wants a cool 3-D virtual arcade based frontend (you can walk around inside it now!) will do just fine using the tutorial I’m working on. You can customize it to your liking via skins, ignore features you don’t really care about, and spend as much or as little time tweaking it as you like. Nice stuff.
Pir8ted some 80’s laserdisc games. I don’t care if they’re bad games, I just love these things. If I could obtain them legally for something other than 4,000 dollars, I would. I have legal Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace, why is getting the others so damn hard?
Worked with Myth on the UE radio play. The guy who got cast as Mallory is pretty good! Myth’s Meiko is also nice; I had some suggestions about the pacing of Meiko’s words, ie that she should be snappy and to the point, very precise and businesslike even on these silly lines like “That makes you either charmingly innocent or a skirt chaser, then.” I also recorded my lines for Duke — he’s one of the only characters in the series I think I could do adequately with my voice. I’m told I have a deep voice but it sounds high pitched and kidlike on tape/MP3. Very hyper, too.
I wanna say thanks to everybody who posted their condolences on the last post. It’s appreciated. The funeral is this Saturday; there’s a viewing on friday, but the idea of my last visual memory of Doctor K. being a sickly body in a coffin is pretty ‘EEK’ so I’m gonna pass on that. Fortunately (unless it’s inhumane to say this) I’ll be back from the funeral in time to catch a movie or two at the Saturday movie party. I feel bad and all, but I really, really wanna see Shaolin Soccer, dammit. It might help cheer me up.
Tonight I’m not gonna plan any specific activity. There’s a new wrestling franchise hitting PPV tonight; it’s an oddball, a 10 dollar a week show. But, they’re doing a re-play of it Sunday afternoon, so I’ll wait and see from online buzz if it sucked or not, and order it then. Tonight I just coast. Tweak the mame box, maybe RP a little (I’ve really been neglecting that), things of that nature. Waste time in a low key way. Probably no writing… I still have to do an outline, and the atmosphere just isn’t right yet. But I know y’all’s patient, so I’m not worried.
