I don't know why, but lately it's become increasingly harder to work up any enthusiasm about mapping. Seriously, no matter which of my project I think of, all I can think of are obstacles that are difficult if not impossible to overcome, and it just feels so tiresome and *boring*. My batteries are drained it seems, so I'm taking a break for a while. Hopefully just a few weeks, but maybe more.



Of course, I'll still hang out around here like usual. You're not getting rid of me so easily Wink

It's strange for you to mention this right now. I'm going to be gone from tomorrow to Saturday to visit my relatives for (American) Thanksgiving. Obviously, I won't be able to do any mapping then.

In case anyone is interested: I also am taking a break from mapping at the moment. And it's also not because of the project. In the last months I tried out different projects such as Alien 3 (GB), Spindizzy (Amiga), Rockman & Forte (WS) and Driver (GBC), but I also couldn't do much more than a mere beginning on these games.

I will definitely get back to mapping one day but not too early. It doesn't seem right because this way I won't finish anything. And I will try to get other things sorted first, which seems more important at the moment.



Of course, I will also stay here with you.

Welcome to how I felt some months ago about mapping.  I still feel a bit tired about mapping some time, but not as often as before.

Yeah, it can really burn you. This isn't the first time it happens to me. When I reach such a point, I have trouble just playing a game without trying to map it in my head and getting discouraged at how hard it would be.

I haven't mapped much in a few weeks, but I recently got the itch again and plan to do some stuff over this long weekend I have.
