@JeTSpice, the movie was kind of dark and I really couldn't see enough of what was going on to get spooked when whatever it was popped up on the screen quickly. Maybe tweak the gamma just a bit, or it might just be my monitor. Its a older lcd, but I have the brightness cranked.
@Mene-Mene, How did the presentation go? Did your dad like his gift?
More progress on the 2D retro engine. I've got property animation going now. The system will asynchronously animate x,y,xScale,yScale and angle over time using a simple linear interpolation. This was the part ported (loosely) from PulpCore. It was actually coded from scratch using the idea behind the PulpCore Animation class.
Here's the latest test .exe Oh, and remember, you don't have to install anything, just delete the .exe when finished. Its all just one monolithic file.
