Post news RSS Version 16 Change Log and Updates

I've been working frantically to get Version 16 of OMNIS finished before this weekend - which I managed to do, although the slog has left me feeling half like I've got a hangover and half like I should now be able to find barnacles about my person. The main improvement (and the one that took so much time/work) is the removal of the classic JRPG 'random encounters' and their replacement with on-map enemies which can be fought or avoided at will.
