Many thanks to silver_moon, cjhayes85, and Koopiskeva for putting up with me while I incessantly bugged them with questions.
Hours in development: a lot. I threw away just over half a year of my life on this thing. Let's just say, oh, 400, because that sounds like a big, round number.
(Update 21/04/2003) Oh, what the hell. If I'm going to embarass myself, it might as well be in a place where nobody knows me.
Video concept: war-torn lovers. I know it doesn't make any sense.
See http://www.rose-hulman.edu/~yipdw/always.notes for more information. If, for some crazy reason, you'd actually like to know THAT much about this POS.
05/05/2003 update: I feel like George Lucas now -- this is the third encode of "always" I've released. However, it's XviD, it's a lot smaller, and it looks REALLY GOOD. Huge thanks to Tab (RadicalEd0) for giving me a crash course in How To Make XviD Look Freaking Amazing.
