Sadly no. I've not long finished university and I've been concentrating on writing my CV and developing my game instead of this. The fact that text rendering has broken too isn't helping.

It's similar, but not identical. Obviously, hardware limitations dictate just how much you can actually do with the tile system. The tiles themselves are all but identical, albeit I render them in a slightly different way.

However, tile animations are very different and significantly easier to add than the vanilla gen 3 games. If you've ever used Lu-Ho's tile animation hack, it's very similar to that in this engine.

In what language is the engine coded if I may ask? C? C++? Or?
It's written in C, although I am now starting to consider redoing it in C++ from scratch. C, while powerful, has a large number of issues for a project like this which I am having trouble getting around.
I have nothing interesting to add
