Uh, that’s Jedi-Master of Ceremonies.

Thanks, Airshack, for the link! I'll have to wait to watch it in the morning. I'll binge watch all the other videos starting tomorrow evening. Thanks to everyone who has kept this hobby going all these years. I just got back in earlier this year after a 32 year absence. I hope I can contribute something useful in the future.

The newly posted YouTube PeteE @ Festwest 2018 presentation video confirms your suspicion regarding Tilda graphics via Magellan.




Just launched Flying Shark last night for the first time. Excellent!

I couldn't help but notice on the Mac running Magellan, the palette colors don't show up until you select them, that would drive me nuts

Looks like it was a great event!  I noticed the picture of Legend of Tilda- will it be available (or is it available)?  My family loves Zelda.  I never imagined that those kind of games would be possible on a 99. Did PeteE do the graphics in Magellan? My 8 year old and 5 year old sons have been having a blast with Magellan Nothing to compare with Tilda or Flying Shark, but its cool to show them the kind of things that can be done.

 

EDIT: Just noticed the Tilda sign said in development- sorry!

Yes, the graphics were all done using Magellan.  The Tilda thread is in the development forum...

Yeah, I tend to use Windows for Magellan and having a mouse works better too than the trackpad on the MacBook Air.  I'll take a look at the source and see if I can figure out why the palette is busted.  The sprite drawing grid also gets shrunk sometimes too. :?
