Hey Tom,
Yeah, the analog attack did seem simple, but when you put it that way, just skip it. I won't thinking it would take a whole week to rewrite since I haven't seen the code.

Hi,

Well, in concept it isn't hard to write an analog attack system.
Basically, the way it works is it increases the amount of attack
damage depending on how long the fire key or fire button is held down.
The problem here is not that it is especially difficult to create an
analog combat system, but I didn't write the code with this kind of
combat in mind.  As a result I can't just add a couple of changes and
be done with it. The way the code is written now I would have to
totally yank out the code and rewrite it from scratch. The question
here is would you rather me spend a week adding an analog combat
system or would you rather me complete level 4?

You see, that's where the rubber meets the road. Everyone wants this
or that feature, wants everything under the sun, and then wonder why
1.0 is no sooner of being completed today than it was six months ago.
Rather than completing the core of the game, and going back in adding
features like this after 1.0 is actually released I'm being asked to
go in and write and rewrite the core over and over again to add this
or that feature without adding levels, a product licensing system, and
things that absolutely have to get done before this product goes on
sale. In other words what I'm saying is I've spent a lot of time
working on things that are low priority rather than attending to
things that absolutely do matter. So development has dragged on
indefinately.

Cheers!

Well you would have to add different variables and counts for that to
create an analogue I am not sure if one already exists but it sounds
possible.
