Battle System Update 2

Hey guys, finally got another update up. We've all been busy with school/life stuff, but hopefully updates will pick up speed soon. What we've got so far is getting Ana into the Battle System, although we're not finished coding her in yet. But she's there, as you can see in the screenshot above. Also, I finally figured out music combos, so there's a picture of that to the right. I'd also like to announce that the EarthBound Zero Remake and Toast Team Games in now affiliated with EarthBound Central and Saturn Valley Online., so make sure to check them out.

Our biggest news is for the upcoming Beta. It will be released in the next few weeks, and will demonstrate the battle system through a basic Debug Menu. Keep checking here, because this is where the info on it and download will be.

Check out our weekly polls, and join the discussion on our forums.
The next update should be sometime this weekend.

(Note: none of the screens shown are final. We're still messing around with naming fonts, but they will most likely be in the style of Ana's name.)
