So... Hand in day :)
We've got a beta ready and playable, we busted our guts every day but we finaly got there! In the end the project was probably too big for only two people within the time frame but I don't regret doing it. It's been an incredible learning curve and I hope to put those newly learnt skills to good use. Thx goes to Ross for working with me, the UDK forums users and anyone else who has given us advice.
