Where's m0ds?

He has been here like forever. Achieved a lot, like leading Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth (at least the first 15? years). Also directing Ben Jordan movie at Mittens, Kinky Island kickstarter, initiating AdventureX, hosting the AGS radio show, running AGS Bake Sale charity, publishing commercial adventures at Screen7... What a list!
And now he seems to have only guest status, after stepping back as a moderator some time ago?

Mark, thank you for your commitment!

Decentralized, community-driven, no ads - Mastodon is shaping up as a great alternative to the big social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Right now there are 1,3 mio users spread out among more than a 2500 instances. Mainly in France and foremost Japan though, but others are catching up.

Microblogging is neat. Maybe it could be an option for our adventure community too (e.g. preferably with an own instance).


Lately there is also RSS/Atom-feed integrated.
German-speaking users might want to listen to this interesting video talk, giving a fair review also on the downsides.

ibispi just told me he won't work on the super-nice CYOA template anymore. And qptain_Nemo is busy with his secret commercial project.

So please forget what I just said above.

The even older text adventure community on the Intfiction forums handles different engines and approaches (CYOA, parser) historically open. Their loosely connection is the element of having text of some sort.

And since we always respected and cherished non-adventures made with AGS already, we should be fine too with a broader community forum allowing other tools.

Maybe a problem with that late change might be that many members already moved away to other places (Discord only, dedicated forums e.g. for Adventure Creator, Godot, Love2D, etc.). So idk what' better, opening AGS forums for all tools or only very few chosen ones (AGS3, MonoAGS and XAGE).

/* Personally, I'm settling on a small CYOA tool ibispi and now qptain_Nemo are coding just for me. */

qptain_Nemo told me that MonoAGS most likely will run on Arch Linux ARM too.

So, green light also from my side:

Or continue here with a new thread. (Would be sweet to see bicilotti coming back as a community leader.)

Saddening that AGS' lifecycle is coming to an end. Hopefully something new will take it's crown/ cup...

You are referring to no one else than... Gurok.

Looking forward to solder Honeywell pushbuttons on ARM singleboard computers in 2018.

Even adventures like Grundislav's A Golden Wake are running on an ODROID C2 (using ExaGear Desktop.

All the best to you, Tomi! Been always looking forward to when WHAM posted something here. And merry christmas to you, Gnrblexian mind maggots!

Anyway - this means war.

Add spoiler tag for war:
Actually, it doesn't. Nice of him to mention our little project in such popular gaming publication.

EDIT: Too bad my spoiler tag is not working. :(
EDIT: Thank you, Ivan, very kind!  :)

Thank you for sharing your impressive story with us, Slasher. And highly appreciated that you put it up here. First, impressed that you always kept going, there's some real strengths in you and your family. And "Home is where the heart is" they say, and your post wonderfully expresses what a fine place this forum is and always has been.

Looking forward to drop by at your corner by and then.

These great video tutorials by densming were recommended to me by ibispi and Gurok as ideal learning resource, even today.

I'm wondering if making some new videos using latest AGS would be beneficial? I for sure would watch them.

So much awaited! The early gameplay tests on Gurok's YT already were so funny to look at.

And a two-protagonists-setup can add so much personality and wit. Like in both my favorite games, with Sophia and Indy, and Nico and George.

Bump! Good news!

The beloved Release Something-thread may is returning this year. Yet there are still a few weeks left to have something ready...

Only 25 days though.

My sincerest congratulations to the proud parents! And welcome, Ada!
Agreeing with Snarky, you've chosen a wonderful classy name for her.

A 'What's in my bag'-SPRITE JAM, be it drawn real or fictional stuff, might turn out interesting.

Thank you, Mandle, that's very kind! Also I get that funny pun, even I have not changed my name in weeks here...

Enjoy your vacation on the fifth continent, it's getting spring there, isn't it? Beware on your walkabout of those giant spiders who can jump and have poisonous fangs - they are so mean  :-\
