I'll have to try it then. Wasn't there someone on the ML who mentionned
watching FF7 ending on his PC?

I thought it was because those EMF guys were glad to get some sleep at
last because they'd been negociating for a week or so while the Zeons,
being the evil guys they were, didn't appreciate to be forbidden to drop
colonies and stuff like that. :-)

Maybe he's just laughing because of some joke Bright told him (highly
unlikely, I know).

Something crossed my mind: Apsaras III is a space capable MA (just see G
Generation), so 08MST climax might actually be in space: Shiro would
then have to use a GM (rather than a ball :)) and Aina might use some
classy MS but get it thrashed by EMF soldiers and then use a Zaku II as
a last resort and use it against her brother, we'd then get some fight a
la F-91 with Shiro and Aina fighting her bro. With such a set up, this
scene would be possible now I think.

No, I meant the ending you get playing as Zeon or EMF.

That's an extremely nice scene indeed, you should really try EMF!

Yeah, the "interesting" thing is you lose a good part of your forces
when this happens (losing Amuro and G3 that way is annoying)

I don't have it here but I'll look in some Saturn Fans. You should look
if NCS has it: if they don't show it, try emailing
