Hello everyone, I owe an explanation to everyone who was watching "Xen Assault" so far.
It indeed took longer than expected but it was because mostly of the real-life calls. Which I wont be bothering you with those details, as we all know it sometimes gets difficult.
Also I want people who have been distributing the old demo, to stop. Yes, it was a public release. But I though, I gave up on the mod at that time. It's actually not dead at all, but probably more like in a zombie state.. With a little polishing, it can provide more fun then the demo itself. So please stop distributing it.
I think the demo covered the first 4 chapters. There is actually 4 more. But I might not be including one of the chapters to finish the mod quickly instead. And I'm nearly done with the fifth chapter. So it leaves 2 more (10-11 maps) that needs to be mapped.

I also started to improve some of the maps visually, the mod is very very old.. if anybody recalls when I started mapping, I didnt have the skills to back it up much. So the first several maps in the mod visiually sucks ass. Now they look nicer. Most of the people's complaint about the mod was how hard the gameplay was. Now the "Easy" mod, is very easy. "Normal" mod is a bit challenging followed by a smooth similar gameplay to Half-Life's normal difficulty and well... "Hard" mod may drive people crazy. But hey, nobody is pushing you to play "Hard" right?

So shortly, XA is on the table and wont be getting down there until its done.
