Eponasoft, I only just figured out who you are when I saw this topic. Took me that long. :P
Haha, I figured it out a couple of months ago ;D.

I give up. Who is he? :P

Everyone?!?

Bah, and I thought I was special. :P

Kris, he is Nekrophidus (I hope I got that right), also known as Nodtveidt, Dave, and whatnot. :P

Basically, a QB legend. Hopefully, soon a FB one. ;)

Definitely an FB legend when this game comes out.  It's been what - months?  Years?  I seem to remember it receiving a lot of fireworks back when the first screenshot(s) were in QBE...

Well shucks folks, thanks for the compliments. ;D

This game has been in development on and off for many years now. Like most of my game projects, this one was devised before the WWW existed. In particular, this game was originally inspired by Andre LaMothe's "Warlock" engine. It was originally called "Lords Of Magic", but then a game came out with that name so I changed it to "Two Lords". I still have some of the original design documents for the game on paper bearing the original name, stashed away in one of my closets. Of all the levels in the original design document, only two exist in the present game.

Magball was an arcade game Josiah and I thought of a looooooooooooooong time ago. I haven't had time to dig up the stuff I had for it though.

Good news for Two Lords though...640x480 mode is finally implemented...or at least is BEING implemented. It's taking a lot of work because of the buffered blit changes that have to be made, but the rendering already works, and updating the sprites won't take very long...it's the cutscenes and other fun stuff like that that's going to take a lot of time.

That's very...vague. But I assume you want to keep it like that.

Nice to hear about the 640x480 mode. It will definitely expand the Two Lords user base. Damn these new monitors! :P

I think it's the graphics hardware to blame, actually, but less than 640*480 is history; this isn't a Game Boy. :P

Well, while I myself always prefer higher, smarter, better, I don't think there's any reason those lower resolutions shouldn't be supported...

The nice thing about the 640x480 mode is that for my system at least, it runs at the same speed as the 320x240 mode. Lithium's stretch code is written in pure assembly and is very intelligently designed.
