Can't reply to everything now coz I got to run off to a lecture!
JT, didn't you read about the summer meeting? Ts, ts, ts...


... If you think 0.3 is good just wait 'till 0.4 comes out (preliminary
release date second quarter 3002!). The resolution is set to double to
640x480 so that we can have more detailed characters and maps. The
characters will no longer move square-by-square but rather
pixel-by-pixel. This increased freedom of movement will allow actions
such as running, jumping and sliding! We really scared Alex, who mainly
does the mapengine, with this flood of new ideas/wishes. But the next
morning he would always come to us though and say: "I spoke to Joel
about it last night and thought about it a little. I think it should be
possible." ...

So, yeah, I guess we agree on that point :)
