Hey all, anyone have an idea what the status is of this project?

Yesterday came across the master disk in my dusty 'ol MSX diskcase and found myself instantly playing again. (Didn't touch my MSX for 4 months before that). Then i wondered wouldn't it be nice to have a new ROA disk to continue playing. It's such an awesome game!

I thought I heard Rob Hiep saying that it was all because of Peter Meulendijks (game designer). It seems he doesn't enjoy editing anymore Sad

Hey, you know that typical expression 'the eyes are larger than the mouth' when one insist on having tons of food but eventually eat only a small bit Smile

Certain developers have that same habit.. promising a lot.. delivering zippo. It's generally not very wise to make promises about a project with the size of 27 disks Smile Let's say, you can make these promises in the middle of the night on some irc channel, but not to a person or company that acts as publisher and has to deal with all the users asking 'where is the rest?' ..

A few months ago another UMAX member joined the forums, and he was surprised there were people actually waiting for new chapters!
For some reason UMAX seems to think nobody cares about their products or something... Beats the hell out of me, I just don't get it. :/

Let's all post here to express our longing for new RoA chapters! Big smile

I think Peter Meulendijks just isn't interested in MSX anymore.
Maybe a petition can influence him indeed.
I don't think it's necessairy to make 27 more issues, but at least make a game with a finished storyline/ending.

Well, let's say, if his engine is done, AND one you can design the whole game w/o additional code, then anyone could make a game using that engine..

Perhaps he should release that engine if he doesn't feel like drawing/writing anymore ..

yeah, that would also be interesting for us (me) not so skilled programmers :-)

Making yer own RPG on that engine would be awesome...

But I wouldn't defenitly like another ROA ish too...

I always thought ROA was a 'Peter Meulendijks only' project...

Well ROA will never be finished by Umax.
I just spoke Peter Meulendijks and decided to stop
If he (peter) has some sparetime he will send me a complete cd-rom with all the UMAXstuff and sourcecode. But it is very understandable for someone that had to do it on his own.

We decided also to prepare an UMAX surprise as a finish.
I hope we can prepare for let say the meeting of MCWF.

To avoid misunderstandings ROA is never promised as a 26 and not 27 part story.
The engine was designed for 26 parts and that is something entirely different
So , Wolf's suggestion is very true and people are invited to help and not only ask where is it

We had to thank him and former members of UMAX for all the good work and also Cas Cremers !
Cas and Peter thanks for all
Petitions will unfortunately have no effect
