Hey guys, just wanted to sort some things out here.

a) I'm not dead

b) I did not quit



My motherboard died on me, and it ripped out a vital windows file when it went out. I was unable to repair the file die to a severely damaged boot sector on my HD. I had to reformat my C: partition and install WinXP. To make a long story short, I lost all the work I have done for ESF, as I was unable to make backups. The Mobo crash prohibited me from backing anything up, and it died in one fell swoop, so I had to prep time for it.

Most of the work I did was already in the hands of the team members, so thats the good news. The bad news is that I have lost all my vital modeling and skinning tools, so it will be some time before I get back to ESF work.

On a lighter note, I recently went to Illinois for a job interview, WHICH I'm happy to say, I got ;)
I'll be working for Magic Lantern Playware starting March 1st, the same day I move there ;)

That doesn't mean I'm leaving ESF, so don't fret. However, my ESF role WILL slow down a lot. The current game that MLP is making is a little "behind" in the modeling and texturing dept, so I will have to bust my ass off for them, for the time being. In my spare time away from company work, I will still crack down on getting my ESF duties completed.

I hope this clarifies everything that you guys were wondering about.

MLP's games aren't great because of the development cycles they are given.

They had 3 months to develop COMBAT and only 6 months to develop Survivor.

Think about it, eh?

Any DECENT game has at LEAST a year and a half for the development cycle. The game they are currently working on is really shaping up nice though. They are only one month into development, and its due in August.

So think about that. It's hard to develope an "amazing" game in less than a year.

xstortionist - They are making their own engine of course. The Monmouth office has 8 ppl including myself, and the Texas office has about 25.

Akhkaru - Yes I skin. I doubt I can teach you modeling OR skinning though, especially since I have gotten this job now. I will hardly have time to complete ESF work, let alone spend time teaching someone.

As far as my website goes, it's a prob with the server. They didn't backup my frikin files like they said they would, before the server was switched out. So the IL2 skin and DoD Garand are gone. I'll have to look around and see if I still got that IL2 skin floating around somewhere though.
