  • Reuben Quest 3: Sorunome has brought this project back into the spotlight, and boy does he have some awesome progress to show! A lot of his updates now revolve around story and map data entry, which is a bit harder to show screenshots for. Check out the thread for all the awesome that this project is taking on!

His first post shows his plan of attack for this project, which looks like this text editor will have a good list of features for students to use. Check out the topic and let him know what you think of his current progress!

  • ConvPNG: If you've missed it, MateoConLechuga has posted up an update for this project, to assist with compression things. Check out the topic for a link to an updated version.

  • ICE Compiler: PT_ has been hard at work on this project, adding in and showing off so many things, it's too numerous to begin to mention here in this section. Start at the link provided and dive into all the features PT_ has provided for this project, I'm sure you'll be impressed!

  • Claw Embedded Development System: Muessigb has completed the assembler for his new development system for embedded devices, and requests help testing it. Claw is essentially a VM with a custom assembly language that aims to run on a variety of platforms, from Atmega devices like the Arduino up to 64-bit PCs. If you're interested in giving it a try, head over to the topic, give Muessigb your feedback, and test out the assembler!

  • CEmu: Since pimathbrainiac is no longer maintaining his CEmu build server, jacobly has put together his own build server for nightly CEmu builds, for those too lazy or inexperienced to build CEmu from source. The CEmu team has also been working on improving the CEmu keypad, fixing bugs, and improving variables transfers.

I apologize to everyone on the delay of this being posted. There were a couple that I didn't feel I could properly write bits for, so Kerm managed to get them written for me when he found a few spare minutes to do so. Make sure to send him some love!

And as always, we thank our contributors for making these projects and keeping us updated! Until next month, keep them projects coming!
