Long story short, I’ve modified the menu to work in the latest release of CryENGINE.

Yhey! Community

So I was pleasantly surprised today when I set down to take care of my business. (Read: Yhey! I checked my website.)

Apparently I’m starting to make waves in the CryDev community. One of the members of this fledgling community, one Adam of has found my site and linked to my tutorials. I am understandably okay with this.

In fact, I’ve done the same – I added a link in my blogroll (currently located on the bottom leftmost part of the footer) to his page.
