General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Rothron, I hope that you don't get upset by this discussion. I really do appreciate your discoveries and work put into this thread.

The really great discovery is the inspiration for Renegade inlay. I'va never seen this before and believed the inlay to be 100% original work.

As for the subject of discussion, I would dare to say that all black guys look the same, just like Chinese ;) Hope that you won't ban me for these words ;)

Not artwork, but this loading screen of "Chambers of Horrors” by Omega Software reminds me of certain character used by a great rock band in their covers back in the 80s...

The design of the nearest spaceship is very 'original'...

Stop perving at Raquel Welch!
How dare you suggest such a thing!

I've been diligently researching the origins of the Barbarian cover instead....
