General Discussion / I need some help
« on: 11 Apr 2007, 16:55 »
     Rarely do I post something as serious or disturbing or personal as what I am about to but I need some different opinions and perspectives. I just found out that my girlfriend/fiance of almost 4 years has been having an affair for about the last month or two. She says that it is over between the two of them and that she loves me and she wants to work things out between us. Meanwhile, I am a mess, I am heartbroken and devestated. She seems to think that this is something that I can just forgive in a short period of time. She has never been cheated on and obviously can't understand the pain and betrayel that comes with being cheated on and deceived. I love her, I do, I know that. We have a 2 and a half year old child together and my 9 year old daughter would be devastated if she were to leave. I'm just really messed up right now and confused. I have disturbing images going through me head and tons of pain and sorrow. What would you do? How would you go about trying to work through this? What would you say to her? I'm really at a loss for words......  :'(

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / Zork remake
« on: 23 Feb 2007, 16:47 »
     I've posted this in the recruit a team thread already but I wanted to make sure as many people as possible see this so, I am starting my own thread for it too:

 Okay, I have an idea to remake the original Zork text adventure game(and turn it in to a graphical AGS game). I have no real abillities as far as doing graphics, music, coding, or anything. What I'd like to do is get a team together and I would do all the coordination for the project. Also I would get everyone what-ever info the would need to design the bg's and do the conversations and everything and anything else I could possibly help with (I have lots of free time on my hands at the moment, so I would be able to dedicate mucho time to the project). Hopefully there will be people that like the idea and want to work on the project. Please PM if interested or email me at I am very serious about this idea and would REALLY like to get a team together!

P.S. If interested, I'd also like to see samples of your work, so please send me some samples as well. I am striving for making a HIGH quality game. (I know you might be thinking, well he can't do anything but as team leader I would be doing a LOT of coordinating and dedicating a LOT of time to the project)!!!

General Discussion / My Netscape browser is f***ed up!?!?
« on: 17 Feb 2007, 20:52 »
     Well at the moment I am forced to use internet explorer. Something is really screwy with my netscape browser. It keeps freezing(lagging;sticking) then the screen goes blank, then resumes normally and a minute later sticks again. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it, scanned for viruses, defragged the hard drive, and nothing is fixing the problem. Anyone got any suggestions??? If not, I guess I'm gonna just have to send an e-mail to the people over at netscape......

General Discussion / Family guy quotes
« on: 15 Feb 2007, 02:03 »
     What is your favorite Family Guy quote! Here's mine:

Nobody calls me a fizzle and gets away with it! Except for that one guy who called me a fizzle and then ran away, he got away with it. But most of the people who call me a fizzle don't get away with it! Actually he was the only guy to ever call me a fizzle, but after today only half the people who have ever called me a fizzle will have gotten away with it! --Peter Griffin

P.S. I hope this doesn't qualify as a STUPID thread!!!  :P

Hints & Tips / Early Bobby's Shoes
« on: 24 Jan 2007, 18:09 »
     I have a book of matches, plank, and spring and haven't a clue what to do next? Anyone???

     those great games that we all were looking so forward to in the in production threads? I figured that this would be a great place for people to ask about games that were in progress and people wanted to know if there was any updates or if the project just died.... Sooo, instead of bumping old threads (which I know Darth just LOVES) in the in production forum....Let the asking/wondering commence...
     Here are a few games that I've been wondering what the hell happened to:

1. Drugbust

2. Natalie Buchannon

3. (argh, I can't remember the title, it was being worked on by Anarcho; the guy that created Emily Enough)

4. Horror Hotel

5. The Infinity String

General Discussion / What are your top 5 Beatles songs?
« on: 25 Nov 2006, 05:43 »
     Okay, obviously I am a very big Beatles fan. I dunno how many other big Beatles fans we have out there in our community..... But I thought it would be interesting to see what songs other people like.....

(not in any particular order)

1. (obvious song) I am the walrus

2. (popular song) Hey Jude

3. (obscure song) Glass Onion

4. (song with spanish singing in it) Sun King

5. (early Beatles song) In my Life

     Now, what about everyone else........

General Discussion / AGS'ers with kids
« on: 17 Nov 2006, 14:55 »
     So how many of you fellow ags'ers have children? I don't believe there are to many of us. I have two biological children; my daughter is  8 and my son is 2. I also have a step-daughter that is 7. Who else out there is in the realm of parenthood???

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / AGS Game Endings
« on: 17 Nov 2006, 14:45 »
     Okay, here is a thread that I don't think has ever been done before. You know we all love finishing a game and seeing what happens in the end. Sometimes it ends with a cliff hanger, sometimes a game leaves you scratching your head wondering "that's it?", and somtimes it has that perfectly awesome ending that we all were hoping for.  What is your favorite ending to an AGS game?!?!?

     Okay, I just started playing the F.O.Y. demo last night and I'm stuck a little bit in to it:

General Discussion / Amish School Shooting
« on: 03 Oct 2006, 15:36 »
     Well another school has been shot up. This time in amish country PA. I wonder if these type of shootings are limited mostly to the U.S. I don't really hear about these kind of things in the UK. What a shame and horrible situation. I have two daughters and I can't imagine the fear and pain that the poor girls went through. Why do these type of school shootings seem to be becoming more and more common???

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are altogether!

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / Pinhead Games

     Has anyone been to Pinhead games web site? They have a few cool adventure games there. I believe that they have been there for awhile but if you've never been there, I recommend checking it out. Make sure to download The Goat in the Grey Fedora..... It's a really nice looking game....

2. Nataly Buchannon and The Lost Amulet of Kings

3. Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass

5. Chronicles of the Red Knight

6. The Legend of the Lost Lagoon

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / Adventure game appeal
« on: 13 Sep 2006, 22:07 »
     What do you look for in your adventure games? What appeals to you most? What attracts you to an adventure game?
     I find that the most important thing for me is immersion. I really need the game to keep my interest, have excitement, and be enjoyable to play. So I guess the story line has a lot to do with amount of immersion in an adventure game. If it has a great story I find it will meet my requirement; as it WILL hold my interest, have excitement and be enjoyable to play.
     What does everyone think???

General Discussion / Beta Testing
« on: 13 Sep 2006, 19:37 »
     I am curious as to how one goes about beta testing. I have never beta tested a game and I really, REALLY would like to. Do you just play through the game and look for bugs and spelling mistakes or do you have free reign to go on any screen and look for problems??? I guess I kinda want a guide telling "how to beta test"

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / New games
« on: 12 Aug 2006, 01:06 »
     Well, I have to say that I have quite disappointed with the lack of new AGS games coming out. I see that there are many, many ones that are in progress but from what I understand, a great deal of those end up dying. I really can't imagine how much work and time really has to go in to creating a decent AGS game. But I would think that there would be some new ones popping up here and there. Anyone else feeling me???  8)
