That's awesome, and probably was quite fun for your professor to see all your reactions.  :lol:
Were people hitting ctrl+s after every key-stroke?

Yep, he always seemed to enjoy himself.

Man, as soon as I have an extra $7000-10,000 USD laying around I've gotta get me one of these.

I saw a Serval at the Albuquerque zoo this summer, which is a large part of why I coveteth a Savannah so much. It was a really beautiful cat, and quite friendly with it's trainer.

But, man, those Lyger magic skills would come in handy with the ladies.

Not exactly on-topic, not exactly off topic, doesn't fit in the OT-creativity thread - Goes here, obviously.

http://bub-n-bros.sourceforge.net/

I mentioned this a long time ago; I'd redone most of the graphics for this game. More recently, I revised all graphics to a much higher standard and submitted them to the author, and the dragons / bubbles now use a 384 color palette.
Something I would have liked to have during this project is higher precision than 8bit -- the bubbles got significantly quantized because I had to manipulate the brightness curves of the greyscale originals (which had a LOT of detail/smoothness - done mainly through recursive shading with the help of a little plugin that sets FGcolor == midway between current FG and BG colors.) -- the various colored bubbles -- eg EXTEND ended up somewhat chunked:

[

Currently, you can see the new graphics ingame, or in two places on the website - at the bottom of the main page, and on the credits page; the other website graphics (mainly screenshots) haven't been updated yet.. Individual screenshots don't show upgrades very well.
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.
