Wow, no news for a while. Sorry about that! We brought home colds from the GDC and didn't get much done for the first week back. However, we're back in the swing of things now (woo!), with the new version of DX-Ball 2 (finally) on track for release soon. The True-Color Software Blending article on my Programming Page has been given an update with a new Alpha-Blending algorithm that is nearly twice as fast as the old one. (And yes, the new DX-Ball 2 is performing much better because of it!) Check it out if you're a coder!
