BUGS: None known (eye candy related only due to the strong compression used by the game engine).
I'm not a real Hello Kitty fan and I even do not own any Hello Kitty products by myself - but this little cutie looks just nice and makes me to be in a good mood. :D
For those still thinking this is girly stuff for kids only I highly recommend to watch what Yat Siu, CEO of Sanrio Digital (Hong Kong) LTD, said about at Zeitgeist Europe 2007 (to be found on YouTube.com) - quote: "Young kids, are they interested in handbags... shampoo, guitars... cars or 4.000 Dollar jewelery?". - The Force is strong with this kitten. :P
As this release comes with screenshots also containing some other unfinished work like the Hello Kitty HUD or just promotional contents like the Hello Kitty skin replacement I decided to add them for following reasons: no need to bother me (where can I get this?!). And as I'm now away for a few week you would have to wait for a final version anyway... These add-ons may be considered as preview, teaser, beta or just shamless advertising. ;P
HUD: throw in ur base, when running a mod (like ja+) also there. - ToDo: adjustment of icon colors and placement, texturing of panels, maybe some geometric changes also...
SKIN: simple replacement of jedi_zf/torso_03 for promotional issues only (see screenshots) - no future plans at all (pfff, skins!)...
Feel free to use the textures as long as credit is given to me & most important to Yuko Shimizo and Sanrio Digital (Hong Kong) LTD.
For modifications I recommend to google for hires footage.
Made with Mac. (don't think I'm proud of this, I'm just using it...)
