Dash has several subs still in the works:
VSAllocateXM, VSFreeXM, VSMoveXM, VSRotatePalette
Also, over the past month, several new Dash subs have been made, including
subs for collision-detection and sprite effects. The biggest announcement, though, it
the release of a utility in dash.zip that allows the customizing of Dash. This has
allowed for the remerging of Dash and DashX into on library and the splitting of
Dash into several .OBJs.

The Mystical Journey
The new engine for TMJ has been uploaded. Most of the update was internal, to
make the engine very versatile and upgradable, so not much is noticeable to
someone playing the game, but a few differences that are noticeable are the ability to
name the character and the cinema scenes are now wide-screened. The internal
updates include the ability for four characters to be in a party, the use of the newest
version of Dash, the merging of several EXEs, and code optmizations. There are
currently MODs in development for when BWSB will be added to TMJ, too.

DQB's texturing subs.
I guess one could say this game is like a phoenix: it kind of died away, but it's
now being revived! The new release will probably come in about a month and will
feature collision-detection and enemies. More will be posted as the updating
This game has laid dormant for about as long as SMWClone but will also see
an update in the near future. 19Day is currently working on battle engine and
