- 1:36AM CST - I finally got my old Pentium II machine running after making space for it. (I was running three PCs to offload certain programs) and tested this site. Needless to say, it wasn't enjoyable and had some incompatibilities. As a result of this, I decided to rewrite this site from Kompozer to Microsoft Frontpage 2003. I would've made this entirely out of Notepad++, but that would take longer and would be hard to maintain, if I'm being honest.

- 8:39PM CST - I have updated the game demos section and also finally released my remake of Bodies (from Blood) for Take No Prisoners. Another map will also be released someday. Also thanks to Hallfiry for sending me more game demos. Going forward I plan to focus on getting these tutorials worked on, in hopes to get more people interested in modding these games.

- 8:17AM CST - Noticed I accidentally deleted and lost "tools.html" after I applied the changes. So I decided to remake the tools section. Sorry for the inconvenience.

- 1:41PM CST - Alright! After a good chunk of time of working on this site and even writing the "Getting Started" tutorial. It is now available. So what's new? I have provided the demo releases for all three Vampire Engine games (Necrodome/MageSlayer/Take No Prisoners), a couple of patches for both Mageslayer (1.1 patch) and Necrodome (an unofficial patch for modern hardware packaged by OpenRift). Another extra I also put out is the E3 1997 trailer (.MOV QuickTime video) for Take No Prisoners. *See TNP's Misc section*

Well anyway, I am going to take a small break, working on this site to finish up my third multiplayer map. The geometry is finished, all is left is to sprinkle in player spawns and weapons followed by lighting, etc.
