Since I'm the only contributing staff member, I guess I'll have to develop multiple personalities. So here's an Interview, by me , with me...

Our favorite contributer, Dead_Bwoy, has just released his solo project: Environ-Skin BETA! We recently got the chance to speak with him on the development of his add-on for Condition Zero. We met at a local Internet Cafe` to discuss the project. CSCZFILES: Dead, how did you come up with the idea for Environ-Skin? DEAD: Well, it was actually a mate of mine, John Connor's, Idea. We were supposed to do a TOD pack (Tour Of Duty add-on mission pack for the Single Player version of Condition Zero.), but we sort of abandoned the thing when we couldn't figure out how to do what we wanted to do with the pack. So we sort of lost contact for a little while... CSCZFILES: So Environ-Skin was supposed to be one of the features to be included in your TOD pack? DEAD: Yeah, that was one of the features we wanted, but couldn't figure out how to do. Then, one night while playing with CSBot, I kept seeing the error message: All Bot Profiles for this difficulty are in use. Then it just clicked in my head... And that was three days ago, so now I'm releasing the BETA version. CSCZFILES: So this is not the final version? DEAD: No. I'll be taking feedback on the BETA and then putting together a final version while I work on the demo for the TOD mission pack we abandoned. We can now accomplish this evvironment specific camo using only the config files for the packs so we don't even need the cfg.dll which Splorygon, from Bots-United, coded for me using the HPB bot template. Another shout out to you! I didn't really like all of the camo's that I used for the BETA, like the Urban CT or the Desert CT, so some of those will be updated for the final release. There's also some other features I'd like to add, but those might have to wait for after the final version. I'd really like to do multiple heads on the same camo, but I don't know if I can do that yet, we'll see how it goes. CSCZFILES: Wow, seems like you've got a lot of work ahead of you. DEAD: Yeah, that's why I don't make release dates untill I'm cleaning up after playtesting my projects. CSCZFILES: So no official release on Environ-Skin final? DEAD: nope. I'll definatly keep you guys informed though. CSCZFILES: Thanks Dead. DEAD: Stay tuned to www.csczfiles.com for Environ-Skin project updates!!! CSCZFILES: LMAO DEAD: ROFL

You heard it from the man himself...
