The Purple Parade is marching in full stride to the beat of that 'other' drum we all hear, but generally ignore.

QuoteHey Techmaster! Great to see you again. That was some break you took.
QuoteGlad to hear you're well. What type of engineering work are you doing?
QuoteMake sure you update your profile with the new e-mail address so you can come back sooner than seven years this time!
QuoteWhat games have you been playing recently?
QuoteMy work is related to electronics engineering and applications. I design some of the hardware (not the IC, but hardware as a system) and write firmware for stuff. Although recently I've been shifting more towards testing. The focus is wireless controls and data-acquisition application systems development.
QuoteI also play around with 3D parametric modeling software as personal interest on my own spare time though.
QuoteAsides from new flash games I play from time to time, the biggest rpg title I've played recently would be Ys7 for PC. I bought it about half a year ago and finally decided to try it out.
QuoteWhat type of products are you developing? What processors are you working with for firmware? I was an electrical engineer for 10 years myself and have since gotten a new firmware only position and left the hardware design and soldering behind. I don't miss it. I much prefer the software realm. Firmware also comes with good job security since you still need the intimate hardware and product knowledge as opposed to general software work which can be outsourced easily.
QuoteThat sounds interesting. I never really got into any modeling like that. Is parametric modeling a bit in the mechanical engineering direction?
QuoteHow did you like that? I've sampled a number of Ys games, but never quite had the time to really play through them. When I thought about hammering down and starting with Ys 1, I couldn't decipher which of the many versions I wanted to start with! I think Ys has been remade more times than Final Fantasy!
QuoteSounds very similar to the work that I have done. I have worked on all of those including assembly for 8-bit and 16-bit PICs. For the 32-bit RISC arena, I work with AVR32s from Atmel. I also code in-house utilities in C#. Although our product industries differ. My work is in laboratory instrumentation. I used to do portable hand-held instrumentation, but now I am doing the larger expensive stuff that fortune 500 companies use in their labs.
QuoteHave you ever tried your hand at ROM hacking? You'd probably pick it up pretty easily with that background.
QuoteWeren't there multiple PC remakes for Ys 1+2?
