Twinsun How do I contact Frederick Raynal?

Hello everyone,

Wow, this board has really taken off. Anyway just a simple question. Does anybody know how I could contact Frederick Raynal? I know it sounds impossible but I would like to contact him about employment (of some kind). Or maybe just a years experience within whatever company he establishes next. I doubt I'll get anywhere, but, what the heck, I worship the guy and need some experience in the industry (maybe just as a beta-tester to start with or something). If I saw somebody else write this thread I would probably think they were some kind of dillusional fool, still worth a try, no?

P.S - The news about LBA on Gameboy advance is really exciting. Might just have to buy one. But how are they going to animate the characters? In LBA the characters were 3D and I don't think the GA has the capabilities to do that kind of thing.

P.S.S - Have you thought about what your going to do El Muerte? You must have nearly finished your Uni course.

Hi! I'm one of the fairly newer members here, anyway weclcome back!

Frederick still uses his No Cliché e-mail (I believe) which is: [email address]
You should also check out a phone interview, by Axx, of Frederick. He confirmed that he is starting a new company and he is making a LBA-like game called Trium Planeta. Hope that helps you!

The GBA can indeed do Polygons, as shown in the Tony Hawks 2.
I think it can handle about 400 p/s.
While this is enough for Twinsen, it won't be enough for enemys as well.
They will probably use pre-rendered sprites for enemys and NPC's. Pre-rendered sprites, if done correctly, can look very effective (ie, in F-Zero:MV).
Overall I expect the game to look very much like the PSX version.

If you decide to go back in time make sure you don't cause a paradox

^__^ No way. Everyone needs hopes... without them you would never get outstanding individuals. Who knows man, maybe you'll be Raynal II.

Oh and Dark... although I'd played the GBA previously (Tony Hawks) and thought it was terrible, I must admit I'm swayed now. I played some Mario Kart a few nights ago and it rocks. Bringing back all those SNES memories.

What you mean,like, saling the PC designs to IBM or something will cause a paradox?
or give LBA3 to Fred?

Whoops.....
----
Keds- You judged a machine by one game? And then changed your mind because you played another?
What was wrong with TH2 anyway?
I don't like that sort of game myself, but it is an excelent example of the systems power for isometrix games.
It it can run TH2, it could easily do an LBA1 conversion.

Oh......and is it true Mario Cart has 40 tracks? (20 old+20 new)
