I've been working every weekend, but have been swamped on prior weekends so I haven't been able to spend much time here at all.

But I'll try to answer questions today if possible. I'm not sure if there's a whole lot I can say at this point that I haven't already gone over in prior weeks, but I'm willing to at least take a look at what questions are on your minds. :p

So feel free to respond to this thread with questions you have about the project at this point.

Not yet, but soonish.

It's too hard to tell at this point about the release date. It all seems doable at this point, but there's always the chance of unforeseen problems. :p

As far as gender choices, I'm not completely sure. It changes the interaction you have with some of your party members fairly significantly (The romance angle like you mentioned), and there's at least one quest I'm aware of that can be solved a different way depending on gender...

As far as the music goes, I haven't had the chance to listen to the new score. I'm not even sure what stage it's at right now. I know a few weeks ago we had all the prototyped music (i.e., not recorded by live instruments yet), but I don't know what's changed since then.

will there be romances?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I'm not sure, really. I'm not sure if it's as central to the game as it was in KotOR1. But I'm just not informed enough on the subject. :(

since there is a demo of how the pc is interduced in kotor2. How close to the actual games beginning is the demo? or does it have elements of the beginning but isn't really how everything starts off.

I'm not sure. That's always in Lucas Arts' hands.

How are you today, Akari?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I'm good, thanks. :(

I'd have to bounce that off our graphics programmer, but he's not here at the moment.

I'm not sure about new planets. But I do think that you've got just about all the planets figured out. I was looking at a list in another post that theorized what the remaining unknown planets might be, and that list contained the rest of them... it contained some that were wrong too, of course.

I have no idea what LA's marketing schedule looks like. I can't really answer any questions on that subject.

A game programmer with my years of experience can probably expect to make between $40k - $60k depending on a number of factors. My salary falls in there somewhere. :p

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I don't mind answering questions. But I don't like repeating myself, so I prefer new questions. :)
We earn our copy of the game via 7 day weeks at 12 hours a day, I think.

A new character? Hm, I don't know about a name. But that green-skinned guy people have noticed in screen shots is a party NPC. He's also a Zabrack as some have noticed. He's also the owner of the pet-like thing the party gets.
