7th July Progress

Hey guys!

Tiyuri has kindly allowed me to hijack today’s progress report (not without me nagging him repeatedly, mind) to talk a little about what I’ve been working on the past few days with our musical instruments.

Bartwe worked hard last weekend to get the system in place, and I’ve been taking full advantage, testing various potential instruments with dozens of ABC files.

At present there’s almost 20 instruments already in the game, with more to come as time goes on.

It’s been a bit of a time-consuming task collecting all the necessary samples to make it work well, but hopefully the video below will demonstrate that it’s an effort that’s paying off nicely!

Hope you guys like what you hear!

All that remains really as far as the instruments are concerned is some pretty graphics to make them look the part, proper animations with the hands, a user interface so players can easily select their song of choice, and getting synchronized performances across multiple players.

It’s shaping up to be a great feature considering it started as a weekend project, expect to hear more soon!

Good night everybody!
