But of course. I guess only Doan knows the story, so I'll relate it here. A few may remember I started posting about a year ago, and instantly started pestering the hell out of anyone who could answer my numerous questions. Anyway, one magical day my copy just stopped working for no readily apparent reason. I suspected an attack of girlfriend related angst, but as I had no proof, and wished to continue getting laid on a more or less regular basis, I didn't make an issue of it. The quest to find a used replacement copy, at a price I could afford was worthy of Camelot, but I shan't go into that here. Anyway, the girl is gone, (nothing to do with this game)I have a replacement copy (finally....), and, at the moment, plenty of time to work on a game. As usual, my subconscious has spurred me on to pushing the limits of the system to the breaking point by attempting a game this system was never meant to handle. By skipping the basic and intermediate levels, and moving straight to advanced programming in a system I understand imperfectly at best, I have ensured a "challenge" (alternate:frustration) to drive me straight into incurable insanity in the shortest possible time. Nevertheless, strangely, I find it easier going this time. Undoubtedly, my earlier experience is contributing, but I just barely got into it last time, and I'm doing things now that would have completely baffled me then. Someone should do a psychological study on the correlation between creativity and sexual frustration. I guess that's why the Muses are female. At any rate, I've been doing this for about two weeks and I'm still working out the basic mechanics for my game system, I'll let you know when I have something playable. I'm sure I'll have some questions between then and now. In the meantime,
Hey guy I do not know. How's it goin'? Long time never see. Glad to hear more activity is coming to the forums. Hope to see you post a bit. (Since Drew left, unexpectadly, and Doan doesn't come much, the activity has went down...) Looking forward to chatting with ya.
Is it just your mind that creates fear? Or is it the darkness that dwells within you.
