point of view too!

Even Lucasarts does it that way :-)

flying by!

I'm planing two-framed explosions in 4 different sizes, 
I think I can present these soon.

Only I doubt that the VCS can produce the trademark Tie-
Fighter sound.

What about the classic da-da-da da-di-da daa-da-da as 
jingle when the mothership enters the scene? :-)

outside the kernel.

There's tight parts and parts that are even tighter :-)
