We received some questions about how certain things were made in DICED - Tournament, so we decided to create a little blog page to answer all of those questions and to provide some more insights about the game and some things we learned during the development. Happy reading!

I really appreciate this "post-mortems"! Lots of things to learn from them!
I already thought that Diced was one of the most polished MSXDev entries; this post really confirms that Smile

I keep on forgetting if there was a page that hosted links to all these "development post-mortem blogs"?

Very interesting! Thanks for sharing! Very nice font system! I think more games should be using these types of variable-width fonts, that make text look very natural on the screen, compared to the classic 8x8 blocks we are used to seeing in old games. And the details of "bold" text, etc. are super cool. Very nice!!

One small detail, on the music side, "#" and "b" in English are called "sharp" and "flat", not major and minor Smile
