Ambrosia has done a awsome job![ 11-14-2001: Message edited by: jhtrih ]</p> Comments Reply 1 of 14 cdhostage Posts: 1,038member November 12, 2001 8:43PM I went to <a href="http://www.ambrosiasw.com/" target="_blank">http://www.ambrosiasw.com/</a> and I can't find a mention of Escape Velocity : Nova enywhere. Is it a similar step up from EV Verride as EVO was from EV? If so, it will be incredibly cool. Reply 2 of 14 fran441 Posts: 3,715member November 12, 2001 8:50PM I still wish EV was MP capable. Imagine an Massive Multiplayer Online EV.That would be sweet. Reply 3 of 14 logan cale Posts: 1,281member November 12, 2001 9:12PM EV is the best game EVER! I've wanted MP support for such a long time. What are the new features in EVN? Tranparency, what else?...DAMN, Fran, 81 posts?![ 11-12-2001: Message edited by: MacAgent ]</p> Reply 4 of 14 fran441 Posts: 3,715member November 12, 2001 9:20PM 81 and more to come. EV doesn't need MP it is such a good game, but wouldn't it be cool? Reply 5 of 14 logan cale Posts: 1,281member November 12, 2001 9:27PM I have to keep deleting EV so I can get some work done.

Oh, the hours I've wasted on the first two... Reply 9 of 14 crusader Posts: 1,129member November 14, 2001 6:43PM I personally have wasted over 82 hours of my life playing EV, EVO, and various plug-in's. I love that little program that keeps track of usage for each app. As for EVN... I get a rush every time I think about it.

Reply 13 of 14 ender Posts: 353member November 17, 2001 8:39AM I have been watching the log and the EV:N boards off and on for the last 5 months. I am so excited about EV:N. OS X compatible too! Shareware for the 21st century. Ambrosia Software really makes quality products.As for the new features, take a look at the progress log and look at the new engine features that mburch lists. All sorts of awesome effects. Transparency, Engine glow, shadowing, larger supported sprites, and WAY more. All for around $25 or so... what a deal.-Ender Reply 14 of 14 macmonkey Posts: 28member November 17, 2001 2:07PM Sounds awesome..I just wish they'd release it already! Sign In or Register to comment.
