At this point, you might as well create a bot that posts once a month asking for screenshots so that Korby gets a reminder to get off his butt and get more work done. Or just hire me back for one map please ):
I don't know about that.  I think he got immunity against my posts.  :D

I wouldn't mind a monthly bot that reminds Korby to get off his butt and get more work done.


In fact, make it daily.

Is this Plugman's stage?

If so, it is the most beautiful stage ever witnessed.

Looks like the stage could use some work.  The floor textures blend with the wall textures too much.

Hey everyone I have an early Christmas present for you all!

I know this isn't quite as good as a KD update but hey it's still worth showing off some newly polished content.

Good to see another picture! Especially one of a spooky, scary, Shady stage. I really like that the pillars are more like the ones in the original Shade Man stage. And the addition of a teleporter should hopefully be nice.
But wouldn't this have been more appropriate to post during Halloween? Or is this a.... Nightmare Before Christmas?

It doesn't include the idea of follow-me eyes on Wily's portrait, does it?

Though this is a cute idea, at first blush the computational complexity needed to establish a true tracking would become problematic quickly for what is arguably a marginal benefit "feature" (easter egg?) especially in multiplayer game modes.

The first idea that comes to mind is doing a line vector like other FPS games. ZDR has the capacity for a "turret" system that you could use to represent individual eyes, working in a pair. Yet even if you were successful, this would amount to the typical number of sprites used to represent rotation in the game engine and the resolution would be poor as a visual output for such a computationally complex feature.

I'm sure someone out there could think of a very clever way to do this, but I would personally struggle to justify limited development time pondering over something seemingly trivial like this, when you could achieve the same or similar user experience through an animated sidedef of some type. This method would fit much better with how the game engine is designed and has the bonus of being abstracted mostly to clientside. You probably couldn't make it track, but you could add some delays in the frame definitions to give the player the illusion of an inanimate object that seems to come alive! You could even use the internal RNG for extra flavor. Using the RNG is probably as computationally intense as I would go here, as there's plenty of cycles I would rather use on the core gameplay experience.

It's already been done, it's just the portate with the eyes removed and there's a wall behind it with pupils on it, basicly a perspective trick. In fact there WAS a download for it somewhere, probobly buried in the suggestions forum

Exactly what Ice said. I think it was I who made that suggestion, but seems the files didn't work on everyone for some odd reason (Might be my luck because I was testing it in Software Mode?). I'll look up my threads and see if I can find it.

In case you wonder, the inspiration was an Instructable

Tomorrow is Mega Man's 28th anniversary. Is there any special planned regarding MM8BDM news?

A 28th anniversary isn't really that big of a milestone anyways. Now, a 30th anniversary on the other hand...
