This weekend was a good weekend. I was able to get a lot of the “bones” of the communications system in. This required some reverse engineering (and guessing) of how the comm strings data was set up and used in the original game. You can now enter into communications with the Mechans, but the same code will be used for all of the alien races in the game. I also came up with some pretty cool video graphics effects for the alien viewer. Check it out – what do you think?
