|A textbox with a gradient. Scaled 2x|
Recently I've not pushed on with the book because I've been writing an article for another site to help promote it and also some work related stuff (which is going to continue to hold me up for the next few weeks :(). But writing should continue to move along nicely from next week.
Originally I wasn't going to have fancy gradient textboxes in the RPG book as I was worried it would be too much of a complicated diversion but then I thought of a simpler way of making it happen. I quickly added them this in afternoon.
The next GUI improvements will be getting automatic dialog boxes working and easy to create content for.
As I mention nearly every post, I'm writing a book about how to create a SNES era jRPG from the ground up. If that sounds like it might be your cup of tea then please check out the promo page and sign-up to be notified when it's released.
