Pedro sent us another screenshot to let us know that his R-Type inspired Wing Commander shooter is still in development. The original was a Java test program, but he has mostly transferred the game to C++.
I'd like to request some help from 3D modellers. I need to to know how easy it is to convert multiple texture models into single texture models (so as to be compataible with md2), the alternative being to the WCP format (which has obvious mod benefits, but time is a factor). Also help with a few
textures for special effects such as explosions, lasers, lens flares, etc. would be appreciated. Now would be a good time for special requests.
The work is going slow because Pedro has a busy schedule, but click the "Discuss" link below to provide helpful feedback and requests.

Electronic Arts has announced its results for fiscal Q1 2005. They had three new titles sell a million copies, and the slightly older Need For Speed Underground recorded its seven millionth sale. Q2 numbers will be even better, with NCAA Football and Madden numbers ranging 50-100% higher than last year's stellar totals.
Net revenue for the first quarter was $432 million, up 22 percent as compared with $353 million for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2003. Sales were driven by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban(TM), EA SPORTS(TM) Fight Night 2004 and UEFA Euro 2004, each reaching platinum status (over one million units sold) in the quarter... Net income for the quarter was $24 million, a 32 percent increase compared to the same period a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.08 as compared with $0.06 for the prior year.
The company is on track for $3.35 billion in total revenue this year.
