General Update

Sorry it's been a while folks - what with Lee's time off work, my birthday, food poisoning and a heavy workload I've been rather busy - and besides, news on the Shining front has been rather slow of late.

In SFC updates we have today a new poll, lots of fanart (Shining Force II, Shining Force CD, Shining Force III, RotDD, Shining Tears, and Neo), some new desktops for Shining Force and Shining Tears and also high quality cover scans for Neo.

I do have some new videos I'll try to get uploaded next week, and also I have a few new books to scan including the Shining Tears artbook.

In Shining news, Sega USA have confirmed (though you probably all know this by now) that Neo will be seeing a US release this autumn, and Sega Japan have recently released the fifth scenario for Shining Road and second scenario for Shining Force Chronicle I.

Plenty of people have contacted me to say that the Chronicle site lists Wendy as being the sister of not only Tao, but also Diane - I suppose it's possible they share a father somehow, but we won't know more until we find someone who's played the game.

The Fanart contest has been extended another month, due to insufficient entries - three more and I can pick a winner at the end of the month ;) Get drawing peeps!

What else? I still need to update my Collection page to remove items which I've now sold. Still some bits and pieces up for grabs via the forums, though I'll probably put the leftovers on Ebay shortly.

We're long overdue for a new comic, but I've just not had time to draw one :( If anyone else feels like submitting one, please be my guest!

I think that's about all for now. Oh wait, no. You're probably all wondering about the Final Conflict patch. Well, here's the deal! z80 managed to get back online and patch my most recent script revision into the game, giving essentially a finished patch. I'd like to avoid having too many unfinished versions of the patch floating around, so until someone on the new team has figured out just what to do with the stuff from z80, there won't be much progress. Aspartate has been kind enough to send through some revisions/corrections to the script, which I hope to incorporate just as soon as somebody is able to get it into the game ;) Maybe I'll take a looksie this afternoon and see if I can figure it out.

Okay, now that's it ;) Probably more next week!
