Just needed an excuse to make an announcement. =P
Anyway, the more and more I think about it, the more practical the whole "press space bar to advance dialogue" thing seems to be. It's more convenient, and the only downside is that you have to press a button. If you're too lazy to do that, then I'm sorry. But you can't please everyone. At least this will help make the series much more bearable for people who can read really quickly or just want to skip the dialogue (though they'll miss out on the plot, so I wouldn't recommend it).
Progress on the episode itself? Hmm... To put it fraction-wise, I'd say it's about 2/3 of the way done, but I'm still trying to think of ways to make that final, most important, 'actiony' third as enjoyable as possible. I'm looking at the most recent episode's score and scratching my head, wondering what I could do to prevent that from happening again. That's one reason why I decided to change the text back to the old way. Looking back on it, the unskippable dialogue probably turned a lot of people off.
So yeah, that's it for now. It's been a busy summer, but I hope to finish SMB2: The Arrival 7 within the next month and a half. I'm not too fond of this arc as a whole, but I love the direction the series will take starting with SMB3. By the way, did I happen to mention that this arc will likely consist of only four episodes total? It might drag on into a fifth, but again, changing the text system will help me pack a lot more into each episode since I only need to use one frame instead of several for each bit of text.
Well, that's all I have to say for now. Hopefully you're looking forward to the future of this series as much as I am!
