June 27, 2002

Going to be out of town for the weekend and I start work on Monday (finally). Well in any case I think I will still be able to have Rebel Character section done on Monday or Tuesday. Be back Monday when I predict the visitor count will exceed 9,500.

June 24, 2002

Character site coming along nicely, hope to have at least the Rebel Alliance section done soon. In case you haven't noticed, Rebel Alliance section has been updating daily, and a new preview is avaliable each day, so check them out!

June 22, 2002

Ok, still working on character section. Been trying to stay of internet as much as possible, waiting for job call back. Fortunately, PERL allows me to do that. Anyway, hope to have character section finished by July.

June 18,2002

Well, you can't see it right now, but I have tons of info, and tons of pictures ready to go up with the characters site. I think I may have the Rebel or "good guys" section done by the end of the week.

June 17, 2002

I must apologize for not updating, kinda skipped my mind with all the work on the character section. It should be up by next week, it's a lot of work, but just so you know, yes I'm still working on it.

June 12, 2002

Well, in case you haven't noticed, Yoda site is now up, it was up yesterday, just forget to update the second time. I think I will know begin work on the expansive pile of backed-up work in the Characters section. Part of the revamped character section will include the Jedi Temple/Shrine, (whatever i decide to call it) a guide to the many Jedi Knights in the pre-trilogy which many times go unnoticed. Fortunately, Episode II presented many of the Jedi in action for the first time. Hopefully, Episode III will inform us all of the names, but until then, you will be able to find all that info here.

June 11, 2002

Well, Yoda site will be up in minutes...oh wait tyrannical parental units are interfering....oh well sometime today.

June 10, 2002

Just put up the Episode III site. May not be entirely accurate, but nothing is at this point. In any case, it is quite interesting. I have some crap to do now, but I may also have the Yoda site up and running today. And then onto the characters section...ay caramba!

June 09, 2002

Episode III site up tomorrow...need I say more? Ok, Yoda site by middle of the week or sooner. Happy?

June 08, 2002

Ok, thank god, the ACT is finished. I just took it today. I think it did quite well, we'll see in 6 weeks. Anyway, NOW I HAVE TIME! Yes! I can lift weights, I can sleep, I can play video games, oh yeah and work on the website.( Had you there for a while...) Anyway, Website work resumes tomorrow at noon. I will be here.

June 04, 2002

Well, as I predicted, the ACT study program I have created is taking up most of my time. But I am sure that I will be glad I devoted so much time to it. It will save me headaches later. Anyway, I also need to get my volunteer hours out of the way this summer. It's only 20 hours which I will have near half done by the end of this week. Anyway, schedule is kinda messy right now and I'm still looking around for a job. So, this week will not be so productive by the weekend I should be good to go, or burnt out, one of the two.

June 02, 2002

Ok, had to get rid of the images on the main page, putting the bandwidth up to much. I'll bring them back some time. Uh, don't know where to start...so much that I want to finish up. I think characters section may be the first up on the chopping block, or maybe I'll do the Jedi section as you see much more Jedi action in Episode II. Either way expect something good...soon.

May 31, 2002

FINALLY!!! Summer is here and I can get to work. I will warn you, I must take the ACT on June 8th but I won't be studying non-stop. Still I believe it is much more important than the website so don't expect anything huge in the first week. Right now just hanging out, watching Contact, and waiting to go to some grad parties. Man it feels good....Oh yeah, Episode III story outline on the way....hehe just wait.

May 27,2002

I just updated the Episode II storyline after seeing the movie for a second time. I think it still had the same overall effect, but nothing is ever as good as the first time. Anyway here be the plans for the summer, at least on the website. 1.Update the character section....or just finish it. 2. Create Jedi page as guide to all the Jedis, many of which are not well known as their names are not even spoken in the films. I belive they will become important in Episode III. 3. Finish up my Yoda page because Yoda is awesome, you have to see that fight scene!! 4. Make Episode III speculation page as there is no real info out there. Nonetheless, it should be very interesting. 5. Voting polls on various subjects. Overall, there is gonna be some nifty stuff going on soon so check back often. Episode III page should be up soon.

May 25,2002

Well, I am starting some new sections, should be quite interesting. I have a site dedicated completely to Yoda as he is the best/coolest Jedi Knight ever! Speaking of Jedi Knights, I will be making a site for them also, as there are many new fighters, all with strange names nonetheless. Ah yes, and the poll. We're getting there. Probably won't be up until this summer. Finally, visitor count is over 6,500.

May 23, 2002

Just broke 6,000 visitors! I am pretty amazed. Just so you know, finals are very soon, and I have a ton of crap going on in the form of projects and tests. However, once summer is here, at the end of May, I will finally be able to do something! Keep checking back, I'll try to get as much Episode II info as possible, as soon as possible.

May 20, 2002

Ok, just put the Episode II storyline page up and I think i did a pretty good job. Also, passed the 5,500 visitor mark today!! Gonna try and get that poll up later this week.

May 19, 2002

It is now officially three years since Episode I came out to the day. I am over half done with Episode II storyline and hope to finish it up today. I would bookmark this site if you like Star Wars because there are going to be some major changes in the next month or so. Online voting polls, full character section updates (finally!!!) and as much Episode II info as you can get your hands on. Oh, and that Star Wars game.....yeah someday. Trust me it'll be worth the wait. Oh yeah we broke the 5,000 visitor mark last night, awesome! I just realized that I haven't had a link back to the main page on this site ever. So, I just did that.

May 18, 2002

I went and saw Episode II yesterday. Don't belive what the critics say, it was awesome, especially in comparison to Episode I. I found it to have an intriguin plot with great action. Granted, it was a little slow at the beginning, but that fact is really quite insignificant. I am working on the storyline, it's about a fourth of the way done. If your like me, you'll need a refresher on what happened during the movie. I will start planning for updates in the vehicles and characters section as soon as possible. This movie has renewned my faith in the Star Wars series!! SEE IT NOW!!

May 16, 2002

YEAH! Finally Episode II is here!! Just got the Jango Fett page up. Check it out. May get storyline up, though I think I'll wait till I see the movie to do that. I want it to be totally accurate. Cast lists should also be up soon.

May 14, 2002

Found a lot of info on Jango Fett last night, just didn't have time to make a webpage. I'll try to have it up today after school. Warning! There will be some spoiler info, nothing huge, but u may not want to read it all....

May 13, 2002

Broke the 4,000 mark last night sometime or earlier today!! Well, I guess it is officailly 3 days until Episode II today. I am gonna try to get as much info on Jango Fett as I can before Thursday. Look for the poll sometime next week...I hope.

May 12, 2002

Well, this past weekend was pretty crazy, but awesome nonetheless. I have been trying to fin out as much as I can about the new bounty hunter Jango Fett, Boba Fett's father, so look for an update on him soon. Let's see not counting today...3 DAYS!!!! Well 4 days for me, I will not be risking the crazed lunatics on Thurs. I will be instead heading out to see it on Friday. Plus I know I will have un-godly amounts of homework on Thursday. But yeah I will get a storyline up as soon as I can. Oh yeah! Almost forgot, getting very close to 4,000(!!) visitors. It is currently at 3937 right now. The last 1,000 have been like nothing. Time flies....

May 08, 2002

Just updated the links section with a great link if you want some Episode II info. I'll keep bringing in as much as I can so you'll be prepared for the release and amaze your friends with your knowledge...

May 06, 2002

Wow, we surpassed 3,500 visitors this weekend!? I really wasn't expecting that to happen. Anyway, I need to get the Swoop page up, and technically it is done. However being the perfectionist I am I need to find a better picture. Anyway, only ten days until Episode II!! Also, I plan on trying to get a voting system up on various topics before Episode II comes out, but we'll see. All I can say is I can't wait until school is over.

May 03, 2002

Well as you might have noticed, haven't had a whole lot of time lately for webpage. However, I'm working on a swoop page, should be up later tonight. Prom is tomorrow which will be taking up most of my day. Epsiode II in 13 days!!!

April 30, 2002

Well fixed up some minor details. The main page has a nifty chart of sorts to see what has been updated and what has not. Hey a chart, not a bad a idea! I guess I'll be making that a table sometime. Episode II is looking more awesome everytime I see that ad. Anyway who knows when I'll have time for Episode II part. The least I want to do this week is to add a page for the "Swoop Bike" so you can have the specs for that available. I also want to get a poll up, but might be wise to wait till after Episode II since everyone will have seen Amidala in action again. I know, pretty lame excuse but we'll see what happens here in the next week, gonna be busy.

April 29, 2002

I just saw a television ad for Episode II and will put my findings in the "New Stuff" section sometime this week. It will have info on the new "Swoop" speeder bike for example. Anyway, other than that gonna try and start making an online poll for the Leia vs Amidala thingy. We'll see....

April 28, 2002

Got back from Chicago at 12 something this morning. Spent most of my morning sleeping considering I got next to none over my trip. I have a crap load of homework tonite and this update is about all I can do right now. We broke the 3,000 visitor mark!!! The count is at 3,128 right now, so more like shattered the 3,000 mark. I don't know what day it happened but I'm guessing sometime on Friday. Anyway hopefully I can get back to work this next week.

April 24, 2002 III: (11:07pm CST)

Well the Episode II site is up...enjoy what's there. I know it's not much, I promise I'll be done soon.

April 24, 2002 II: (6:35pm CST)

Well, just finished Expressions practice (see below) and it was just great. Being in the band will be a lot of fun. Anyway, we are currently on 80 visitors away from 3,000! I am assuming that sometime between now and Suday, we will be over the top. Gonna put the Episode II part up, I am just a perfetionist and need to add a few more finishing touches. It still won't be all done, but at least you'll know it's there.

April 24, 2002 (2:40pm CST)

Yeah, Tripod was being dumb again with its 500 errors so I couldn't even get in to update. And this week has been crap in terms of free time. Tomrrow I leave for Chicago and will be gone till Sunday! So, I am gonna post whatever is done on the Epidsode II site today. I have Expressions practice (big musical, song and dance with popular music thing. I'm in the band) after school today so that may cause some problems. Then I need to pack. But zero homework! However, I think my mom will want me to fill out ACT forms. Whatever, enough about me tomorrow....3 weeks until Episode II comes out!! Be back Sunday.

April 21, 2002 (3:20 PM CST)

I have been working fairly dilligently on the Episode II part of the site and it is coming along nicely. Next week will be a living hell for me, so I will have something up in the Episode II section later tonite I promise! Right now there is a "New Stuff" section as well as Cast, Storyline, and Leia vs. Amidala....hehe. Anyway, I don't know how in depth the storyline will be, but I guarantee you that it will be up the day of the movie, right after I see it. In any case, check back later today for the Episode II site to launch!

April 19, 2002

YES! It's my birthday, yes that's right 18 today. Well that was exciting for a few minutes. No big plans or anything. Anyways, in case you didn't notice "Episode V" as they are calling it, a.k.a The Empire Strikes Back will be on FOX on April 25th at 8/7c. Leave it to FOX to use the Episode number to get people to watch it. Oh by the way, less than a month to Episode II. Sweet!

April 16, 2002

As you probably noticed, starting up the Episode II part of the site. I'm getting pretty excited for the release! Toying around with the layout hopefully have it done this weekend. Thinking "yeah right"? Not this time I am a pro at HTML, PERL is getting there, but this part of site shouldn't have too much in the way of PERL hence i can stick to my "release date."

April 14, 2002

Yup, broke 2,700 visitors today. I'd say that s about the shortest update ever. Well, had big ass German project today, took up a good 7 and a half hours of my day.

April 08, 2002

Yeah, there was a time change this weekend...well save for those lucky people in Indiana....anyway, i slept in way too late on Sunday to code and Saturday was jazz band competition. Oh well, suprisingly, another jazz band competition is tomorrow, meaning i get to miss school. Therefore, tonite i should be free of homework, not that I had too much anyway. Oh, finally, never play the Secret of Mana when you hope on getting anything done for a few days....too damn additctive.

April 04, 2002

Man...it's been hell these last few days. Four days have passed in approximately 1 day. No, i'm not smoking something, it's called lack of sleep. :( Anyway, some of you may have noticed problems with both the clock on the webpage and the counter. Who the hell knows what was going on, but they are fixed. We've broken 2,600 visitors last time I checked. It was fluctuating between 2,588 and 2,597, no clue why. Like I said it is fixed now as far as I can tell. Anyway, this weekend might present an opportunity for coding. By the way, never take a visual basic class....pointless, but easy. ;)

March 30, 2002

Well, there's been a nice increase in the daily visits to the site recently. Haven't made as much out of this week as I would have liked too, in terms of coding anyway. Partying, sleeping, relaxing, most definitely did that...hehe. And then the Secret of Mana trapped me again. I swear you just can't play that game enough times. If you don't know what the Secret of Mana is...well you are a fool and should go get a ROM as it is nearly impossible to find nowadays in cartridge form. I'm not a big ROM person but, hey, it's not my loss. Anyway. back to Star Wars...yeah May 16th for Episode II. Can't wait!

March 29, 2002

Well suck on that AOL! That's right I fixed the image problem. It's a long story but it's all good now. Anyway, spring break is nearing it's end and that means the return of homework. I am having a party tonite and tomorrow I'm out on the town. So, Sunday being Easter is family time and homework time. Yeah, gonna try and stay up late and work on things, but I feel a lot better now that the image problem is finished. Note to self: Never take another history course where the teacher makes you type up your notes.... >:O

March 27, 2002

Well, that whole image thing is messed up. The bitmap images would take forever to load, and they places i got the images offered .bmp or .art. They worked on my browser, and I hadn't used any .art pictures till just recently. For some reason checked on IE and they wouldn't load. Oh well, they won't be on homepage forever anyway. Sorry about all this.

March 26, 2002....II

All right 2,512 visitors and couting. Once again the "lucky" visitor did not e-mail me, when the forum goes up should be much easier. Although, I can't blame someone for not e-mailing me. For all you know I could be some freakish weirdo...oh well so goes the Internet anymore. Well I assure I am no weirdo and hope to have more time to code tomorrow, now that's weird. I chose to go see Blade II instead, not bad, I like the first one better.

March 26, 2002

Only 2 visitors away from 2,500! (10:26 PM CST) Sweetness...anyway gonna do some coding tomorrow and try to fix that image problem. Should be able to, we'll see.

March 24,2002

All right! Only six visitors away from 2,500.(5:20 CST) Remember, if you are the 2,500th visitor please e-mail me at ______@aol.com. I will put you name on the page in the upcoming Visitors Shrine, basically a hall of fame of sorts. When the game goes up, it will have many more uses such as longest time holding number one spot, largest power rating, etc. Anyway SPING BREAK RULES!!!

March 23, 2002

Yeah! It is spring break and time to party! We are only 9 visitors away from 2,500! I need to redo all those pictures that aren't showing up. Damn I wish I had a message board or something up so I would have known about the pictures not working on IE which is crazy since AOL (the provider I am plagued to use) is basically IE. Whatever, hopefully that will be fixed soon.

March 22, 2002

Well this is the first time updating from school. And spring break will commence in about an hour. I also realized that IE is retarded so I need to change some picture files to a JPEG format instead of this crazy .art format. So sorry if you can not see some of them should be able to fix most of them very soon. I was really tired ok... Anyways should have lots of time this week expect character section version 2.0 soon!

March 17, 2002

Well aside from the addition of the humorous C-3PO picture on the main page, not much has happened, that you can see anyway. I have been steadily working on the character section, aided my PERL of course which makes it amazingly easier. I think I might add a "Battles" section to the website and include such things as names of decorated fighters, weapons used, significance, etc. In any case, though you can't see the resluts right now, jsut be aware they are existent. Unfortunately, today I have ungodly amounts of homework today. I doubt i will see the computer again today. Oh well, I usually have sometime after school nowadays so Rebel Character section should be up soon. I do have a preview up, not too great but take a look.

March 13, 2002

Two Years and still going strong! Heh heh...well yeah if anything this "birthday" had reminded me how lazy I have been the last two years. I think the first portion of the site up on the chopping block will be the character portion of the website. Next the forum, and then toss a long needed Episode II portion in there somewhere. Oh yeah, check out the nifty title...long needed by the way.

March 12, 2002

Ok, it's nothing spectacular, but I had little time. Oh and in case you didn't know I also have a 56k modem (cough). In other words internet time is somewhat limited as I need people calling me sometimes. Anyway, I will be adding to the image collection during this week and will probably make a whole new section for them until they are used. Might be kind of fun to see them come and go to their permanent spots. Like a docking bay on Tatooine.... Anyway, anything new to the site should be in red for a while. Don't ask why just accept it.

March 11, 2002

Holy craptanks, I had a load of homework tonite. Tomorrow is a band concert, cross your fingers I have next to zero for homework. I hate to say this but, if I have no time tomorrow, the second anniversary update may not happen till this weekend. Before next Monday for sure though I promise!!! Oh by the way, Episode II on May 16th!!! Looks pretty good, hopefully a forum can be up by then to start the discussion. Sounds like a goal to me...

March 8, 2002

Ok, yes i am a big loser for being at home on a Friday night. But hey, happens to the best of us. So anyway, planning on doing somthing webpage related tonite. My student teacher in US History has retardedly assigned another stupid paper and I will have very little time Sunday and as I mentioned below, Saturday will provide little time either. I promise there will be changes by the site's "birthday" on the 13th.

March 7, 2002

Planning some major updates for "big" second anniversary of the site on March 13th. Coding is basically non-existent, I won't lie. Been pretty busy lately. Hopefully this weekend will provide some adequate free time, but I have a jazz band contest all day Saturday. Where I will be tearing up the mall in Omaha....wow how amazing...lol. Anyway, just know that I will add pictures and other stuff for the second anniversary one way or another, so be sure to visit the site next Wednesday the 13th of March for some great surprises.

March 3, 2002

Sorry about the strange update with tags below. If u didn't see it before it's fixed now so you missed one of your few chances to see me make a mistake in coding and publish it. Anyway, stupid Tripod was having server errors earlier so i couldn't code Grrr.... And now the weekend is basically over. Anyway we are approaching the 2nd anniversary of this website on March 13th, one day after this really hot chick i happen to know's birthday...yeah anyway, March 13th!! We'll see if we can make it to 2,500 visitors by then, I doubt it but we might get close.

February 25, 2002

Yeah, we had to re-do the carpet in our basement, aka the computer area so been kinda unable to do stuff. Also, had to help mys siter move into house, and lost my coding book.. :P Anyway, hope to get back on track this week.

February 17, 2002

Well, there is still a fairly steady flow of visitors coming in, as main page counter indicates. Anyhow, been busy partying lately so, being kinda lazy hope to get some coding finished this week.

February 8, 2002

Okay, yeah I was a little late on the updating this week. In any case it is the weekend after what seemed to be one of the longest weeks ever, not sure why....Point is, I don't have too much homework and hope to get at least some forum coding done. Definitely want to have the forum up by end of this month, period/ Really, I mean it this time....well, just wait and see :) Oh and just had the thought that I may have to make an archive pretty soon for these updates. List is getting pretty long...

February 2, 2002

Well, it's February and forum is not up yet. However, I have a had a stroke of good luck. The last two days of the week were snow days here due to the nine inches of snow, our first real snow of the season. Anyway, this means I have had some time for coding, plus the weekend, totally free of homework. In any case I finally completed a script that is really just a template for the character section of my webpage. Still, it lets me make 20 mintue sites in about 1.5 minutes. I also finally figured out why Tripod wasn't running my scripts and fixed that problem. If I can get my file storage worked out, forum could be up by end of week. Four months till Episode II! (well, 107 days to be exact....i know it's pathetic... :P

January 26, 2002

Yup, forum not up yet. But it's the weekend, plus i have a programming class during school so that helps. Would have updated sooner, but I just figured I would wait till there was really something to update about. Gotta love weekends...:)

January 20, 2002

Well, as you all probably know, this site just had it's 2,000th visitor! Never found out who it was, despite my suggestion they e-mail me and tell me if the saw they were number 2,000. Maybe I should have offered a prize or something...Ok, 2,500th visitor gets...a cookie!...Anyway, forum is going good, be up soon if all goes well.

January 17, 2002

It's about noon and we are 10 visitors short of 2,000! Let me know if u are the 2,000th. Today begins my coding spree. Hopefully, I'll have it done by Tuesday. Hopefully....

January 16, 2002 II: 10:32pm

I have just been the 1,984th visitor to my site since last March. The 2,000th visitor is soon approaching! Anyway, 2,000 will be nothing compared to the number after the forum, and eventually game is up.

January 16, 2002

Finals are over!!! Yes that's right...dude running Star Wars website might actually do something! Holy crap! That's right tell your friends...not sure what you'd tell them...anyway, forum is coming. Cross your fingers!

January 11, 2002

Yes, my teachers were evil and lots of homework I had. >:O Also, tons I will have have this weekend due to finals....However, after that, should have some free time. I, once again, hope to have forum up by end of month. A good, but as you all know, not final estimate. Keep formulating ideas....

January 6, 2002

Well, school starts again for me on Monday, aka tomorrow. Yeah, it sucks so....considering finals aren't till next Monday-Wednesday, I may have some time this week. That is unless my teachers are evil and and keep assigning more homework, which will probably be the case because they are evil. Yes, after one day of school I'll probably be asking them :"Anything else in the box Pandora?" Anyway, I still think I can get the forum up soon so keep checking back!

January 3, 2002

Happy New Year! It's 2002, the same way forwards as backwards.... Anyway, the coding bug has bit me again, but as I've already cotradicted my motivational surges severeal times I won't say anything just yet. Just know that I am back in full swing and even tho there are only a few short days of vacation left I am really getting this code now. Expect forum by end of the month. I would really like to have game up by the site's second "birthday" in March. By the way, if you're just viewing this site, check out the March 30th and July 20th updates below as they will give you the general idea of the game as of now. Of course that doesn't mean it won't change...->That's right, don't cork those creative juices just yet. The forum will be your forum. Don't get too excited...;)

December 22, 2001

Well, as you can tell, it's been nearly five months since I last updated the site. And, as u can probably guess, I have next to no time to code with school and all. By now, I'll need a refesher of all the old stuff I learned. I hope to add a Episode II portion to the site over Christmas, and learn more code too. I'm not lazy, really, I just have no time. Anyway, if it's any consolation, Episode II comes out in only a little over five months!!! :)

July 27th, 2001

I am nearing the completion of my coding learning. That's the whole reason I haven't made the game yet. Once I finish learning the code, I will be able to speed along. I should have plenty of time this weekend to code, so expect the forum in early August. That's all for now...May the Force be with you!

July 20, 2001

Well, I've had some revelations that should make the game highly interesting, so I thought I'd let you hear them. First of all, what character class you are will be vital to your battles, or at least some of them. Every class will have one class it is weak against and one it is strong against. For example, if a Sith Lord attacked some Rebel Troops...well let's just say mass murder. But seriously, all the Sith lords attacks would do 1.5 times normal damage. However, if a Rebel Trooper tries to fight back they hit for only half damage. So it sucks to be a Rebel Commando right? In that situation it does. However, that's why the Commandos can hop in their speedy A-Wings and blast off to another planet to escape the Sith Lord. Yes that's right, locations will also play and important role in the game. That means if you want to gain experience, you need to find some users. I doubt too many will hang out on Hoth, so head to Tatooine, the smugglers paradise, and beat up on some smugglers. I believe that this will add alot to the Star Wars atmosphere and make the game unique. Think of the possibilities....There could be clans of users who hang out at certain planets and ambush anybody who touches their turf. To get to certain planets, say Coruscant, will take turns and there will be specified routes. Smugglers may hang out at outposts to ambush those on their way to a planet. This is when you will battle with your ships, rather than yourself. So it's kind of like a party of two, just you and your ship, trying to take over the galaxy. So you take a little longer route to Coruscant to avoid smugglers, challenge some users to a duel on Tatooine. You both meet there when suddenly you are attacked by one of the "bosses" the Sarlaac! That's right, I will be making some specified users that I will occasionly take the role of and stay on their natural habitat, wreaking havoc on unwary users, unless they can beat me of course. They will be clearly marked i.e. Wampa, Sarlaac, Sewer Monster, Meteorite Worm, etc. As you can see, this game will have many possibilities for individuality, and authenticity at the same time.

July 13, 2001

Ha! I have now updated two days in a row! I just got back from the movie Final Fantasy. Not too shabby, I might add. Go and see it for the animation if nothing else. I'd say 3 stars out of 5....anyways, one of the many topics to be debated in the forum when it is up, hopefully by next week. I can't wait to hear your ideas and input into this game! I hope I can make a game all will enjoy, and with your input....how can we lose? Keep the Force strong!

He he.....Well, ok so it HAS been a while. Put lets try and put that behind us..or I guess below us. Anyway, let's just say I'm finally back on track. The summer has been going pretty good, minus the programming. Well, hey gimme a break ok? After successfully acing finals, I deserved a break. Even so I probably would have done alot of programming, but Nintendo had to go and release Game Boy Advance. The lure of a new Castlevania title was just too much. I have successfully defeated it however. So yes GBA is awesome and a bunch of classic RPG's wil be released for it, but I'm putting it aside for a while and coding non-stop. Ok, enough about my private life, and back to the game. I now plan to update 3 times a week. I know, based on my rep, it seems that wouldnt happen, but it will. Not to say everyone will be outstanding..... Anyway, I hope to be very close to releasing my game by the end July. Thanks to all who keep visiting, hope to have a forum up soon...The Force is still strong with this site....

Well, it appears that my free guestbook/counter service is no more as of April 1. Therefore I shall be making a forum where you can make suggestions and eventually talk with other players when the game is up. As for the game, I have decided to rate characters on six stat areas. They are: Tenacity, Versatility, Force, Endurance, Intelligence, and Resistance. These mean: physical strength, skill in using technology, skill in the Force, HP, Power of resisting the Force, and general defense respectively. Your stat total must start out equaling 120, but you can add to it by battling. The six character classes will be: Jedi Knight, Sith Lord, Smuggler, Rebel Commando, and Imperial Trooper, each with their own unique charcteristics. You don't necessarily have to abide by the suggested stat building technique for you class, but it is generally more fun to do so, since you can form clans of Sith and Jedi to have colossal battles. Not to mention, it will be more fun to challenge a Sith Lord that you know is strong in the Force, rather than technology. I included the smuggler class to give those who want to have a little more freedom in design what they wanted. As for the ships, they will have set weapon systems that can be customized and strengthend, but putting a proton torpedo launcher on a TIE Fighter, may be slighty foolhardy since it's tech rating would not be able to aim them very well. Also, staying true to the movies, TIE Interceptors would be more manueverable than X-Wings, but X-Wings have a grater shield rating than Interceptors. Anyway, if you understood any of that, the main thing you should worry about right now are the models avaliable. They will be: X-Wing, Y-Wing, A-Wing, B-Wing, TIE Fighter, TIE Interceptor, TIE Bomber,YT-1300 Transport (aka: smuggler ship, Millenium Falcon), Firespray Class Patrol/Attack Ship(aka Boba Fett's ship, Slave I), and just because it looks cool, the Naboo N-1 Starfighter. Whew! Well, that was quite the update! Anyway, if you need more info on the above ships, please visit the Vehicles and Vessels portion of the website. Thanks!

I have begun the preliminary planning of the game. Of course, any sugeestions are greatly appreciated, so sign the guset book at the bottom of the page please!. Right now, it looks like the game will allow you to choose a character class (i.e. Jedi, Sith, smuggler, etc.) and a ship. You attack other users to gain experience and money. You use experience to "upgrade" yourself with abilities and power, and money to uprgrade your ship with technology. You will also be able to travel between different locations in the Star Wars universe. Different weapons, items, etc. will be avaliable depending on where you are. More updates soon! May the Force be with you!
