[W]CRPG Book Screenshot Gallery

23rd December 2016 by Dino

The CRPG Book Project has just released a massive, several-thousand-strong screenshot gallery for the games in the book. I spotted a bunch of my screenshots of Menzoberranzan, Ravenloft: Strahd's Possession, and Ravenloft: Stone Prophet, which I had provided with my Ravenloft: Stone Prophet review for the book. A new book preview is also due soon, hopefully (but not guaranteed) after Christmas.

[W][R]Redemption falls

21st December 2016 by Dino

A few days ago, the Titans of Ether announced the cancellation of their Ultima 9: Redemption remake, citing limitations in the Morrowind modding engine (after 12 years of development, by the way). The announcement has been taken down, but I have uploaded a cached copy of it. It is preserved along with many outraged comments. Among the familiar names is that of Avatus, who was once the leader of the original Redemption project before he cancelled it. On 18th September 2004, Corv, who was running a project called "Ultima - The New King", had formed the Titans of Ether and picked up Redemption.

The Titans of Ether claim to have made significant progress over the past 8 months with their new game, "Corven - Path of Redemption", as a result of the switch to Unreal Engine 4, and released a trailer. This game will not carry any Ultima intellectual property, but Corv still hopes to create the perfect Ultima-like game with his team of three (!) by December 2018.

[S]UW1 Additions, Other Codex Link Cleanup

10th February 2016 by Dino

Following a recent playthrough of Ultima Underworld, the Ultima Underworld 1 Info page is getting a lot of new additions. As if the recently released Magic page wasn't enough, there is now a Lizardman Language reference and translator, and a new Fun section. A subsection on combining items has been added, and a correction has been made to indicate that there are actually 2 resilient spheres in the game. More information has been collected during the playthrough, and will be added gradually to the site.

I've also gone over all the links to the recently departed UltimaInfo.net, and changed them to point to an archived version instead.
