it always bothered me so much that they took out all the art.
I still remember that day in.. 93? when i walked into that game store,
and they had MKII Genesis playing, and as the demo rolled there was nothing..
no story, nothing! and it pissed me off to no ends, and in a way it feels like
i managed to rectify a mistake from the past.
I don't know how to go around changing it though,
maybe.. get the tools from the guys who wrote the sound engine and try to find a skilled musician to redo them on my Atari Mega ST?
that or implement the GEMS music engine, which seems to be better documented.
(but also much worse when it comes to music, though i have heard some great music done with GEMS)
Not sure, and Smoke is on a break for now, and so am i. (my hands are hurting like hell)
so who knows when work on a new version will start, but i'm sure it will happen eventually,
there's still a lot that can be done, like the music.. and missing sprites (smoke is trying to figure out MKII sprite compression)
ehm, and maybe fix some MKII stages and redo some MK1 stages to look better.
And of course i would love to convert Arcade Kano/Sonya to MKII Genesis format.
(never gonna use the mk1 genesis sprites, they are just too fucked up)
and then of course the tiny fixes, like i'm still not happy with Liu Kang's bio background,
and Kung Lao's bio sprite, and some text fixes here and there. (rayden/raiden)
so we'll see what happens, but for now its break time.
