Looks nice, and is *almost* what I'm looking for.

Problem 1: I cannot seem to load my own charset or screen. And there's no documentation on how the proprietary files are structured.
Problem 2: I guess this program is unable to edit screens on a 1x1 basis, huh? Everything needs to be designed in 2x2 blocks...

Yeah...

That looks pretty well-known to me. You are talking about delay? When you are working together with Mario there will never be any delay. ;-) Otherwise you both would of course jump to work and live in the software companies house. :P

Hey! That was really crazy times back then. Best wishes. Will give ya a call next days...

It was necessary to redesign the gameplay for a proper conversion. The attack waves were much more ordered compared to the original version. Shots moved slower. It feels like the Amiga formations but in fact the movements were referred to Armalyte. This was necessary because the original showed the double amount of objects the same time!
Actually I do not believe that the project will be continued unless the team wins a lottery or something...
Mario and I never had any doubts about realizing the concept, even these days. The main problems were the delays from my side. I underestimated the lead time first. Besides some design modifications required heavy additional work (in terms of transferring shots from sprites to the char-bg), four levels to come and I was totally broke.
OK - there is no pressure of time or publishers nowadays but there is simply not enough free time for an adequate development...

I've been playing DoDonPachi and other manic shooters lately so I'd have to disagree with you there.. Besides, many of them would probably be used as linked sprites rather than individual moving objects.

Though I suppose they'd have a hell of a time designing the game in such a way as to have 48 sprites moving around without massive flicker. I don't know how the original version of Lethal X-Cess plays but you'd think it ought to be manageable through Armalyte-style "on-rails" gameplay padded out with judicious use of char-bullets.

48 sprite is too much for a playable game :) 16 makes the screen already pretty much crowded. turrican is around that nr too iirc.

Oswald: I fear the original team is working on completing this project or is at least still thinking about it. Not that that's a bad thing per-se, it's just that I most definitely don't need any more competition within the SEU genre ;)
And beyond the superficial similarities, i.e. vertical shooters using "extended" char modes and plenty of sprites, this title is considerably more ambitious (a 48 sprite multiplexer *and* soft-sprites!) than my own project. Meaning that my display mode couldn't handle anything like what this system is supposed to be capable of.

But, yeah, I could use some graphics like this..
