Does this mean you don't agree on the issue these people want to be informed of the progress?

... which were released on the Bombaman CD as seperate files and not in the game itself. AFAIK Frederik did send a stack of tunes to you already so it could be implemented. Unfortunately a strange decision was made to wait for all tunes to be completed before the author was contacted to implement the converted music into the game... (less than) one week before Oss...

Certainly not , but it seems that this can only be done overhere and that how great I would like to do it overhere , there are other places where it also should be.
As regards e.g. TLW it was stated here on MRC. ROa I phoned with Peter directly and also to make appointments what to do next etc. So I did inform.
As regards USB-reader and Memorymapper see my statement. For other people well there are leaflets on every fair.
But I repeat that I believe and will see everything comes along , sorry for Guyver who doesnot believe it and maybe others.
But are we informed about CLS , as mentioned earlier by others compass 2, dream on,
Konami quiz,TMT network etc
It is a fact that many projects are not discussed and only putting the finger to us isnot right ...

OKay.. so the Bombaman manual could have been done earlier, but it's not like the manual is essential to be able to play the game...It's a shame that RoA and TLW Moonsoudn were never finished, but the same goes for Micro Mirror Men, The Final Future, Operation Damocles, Extacy, Strategic Army, Core Dump and many other games of that time that were unfortunately never finished.

It would be nice to hear a bit more about the progress, I agree on that one, but Bombaman is a cool game, the manual is not essential, just an extra, and although some things could have been done better, Sunrise is not solely responsible for the decrease of activity of MSX developers. The developers themselves are to blame. So, lighten up a bit and be glad that the current MSX community allows a release like Bombaman to be created, released and enjoyed. That manual will arrive sooner or later.

Sure, it's all understandable..
But it's ALSO understandable that users are asking about promises in stead of silently waiting.
That's all I said, no critique about the manual being late or anything. Just explaining why people are asking about it.

I find this very disturbing because it seems to me that several people are that bored and cannot wait for something that has a quality.

Just some loose ends:

- there's a manual in PDF format on the Bombaman CD already, so it's not that essential to have a paper version, just a nice extra.

- we didn't have a set deadline for the manual at Oss yet, so we couldn't tell when it would be ready at that time.

- about keeping people informed; there's not much to be informed about if there's no certainty . Sure, we could have posted things about it earlier, but then we probably would have made vague promises we couldn't keep, and nobody would be happy with that. I received a few questions about the manual by mail or IRC, and they got answered. I still think that this post isn't the proper way to get your info. Unless you wouldn't mind me starting a new topic about TVSP and asking all ins and outs about it? ....

- Situations and plannings change all the time when dealing with third parties, so it's very hard to say something definitive about these things and sticking to a planning. I got word about the final things of the manual just this tuesday night, so it's not as if we finished everything 3 months ago already and just decided to be lazy until now... We do have other things to do, we did have to spend some time on the update, and all of this is done in our free time. So, there's a lot of factors that make planning and arranging these things hard. If I had things my way, the manual would have been ready at Oss! Oh, and if people think they can do better, prove it Wink

- the 'blame one person' is mostly an inside joke that got outside the team a bit too often. Awell, every team needs its scapegoat Tongue

Okay, nuff said. More questions? Mail 'em to info@teambomba.net!

Oh, and snout, your automatic e-mail address parser doesn't quite work, it added a /> behind the link automatically... fixed it by adding the [ email ] tags around it, but you might want to look into it.

Sure there is a manual in pdf format on the CD. We already found out it's not complete. For example the special item isn't explained (though it was mentioned). How could anybody outside from IRC (where it was explained, after someone asked about it) know what the special item looks like, let alone what its function is?
