Way back in 2000 on the original DarkBASIC website, TGC posted a paper cut-out template of the classic DarkBASIC pyramid that could be folded. I kept one of these on my desk for around 15 years before it got destroyed. Now I have no copy of that image template and no record of it exists anywhere I have searched including archive.org.



Might anyone here still have that image template deep in their old file archives? Would love to see it again and print one out. The original filename was "pyramid cutout.jpg"

Excellent! Thank you so much, I searched the boards but only came across an old thread from 2002 with an invalid link. This is great

xCept! Great to see you around!!! Oh man, I seriously remember the good ol days of playing The Little Eggy That Could; that was back when I was really into programming. I would mod the textures and sounds and what not. I showed it to many friends too, they all loved it. Anyway, /offtopic.

Cool, thanks! I still don't really understand why or how TLETC became so popular especially given its difficulty (then again look at Flappy Bird, lol). It was a random entry for some small competition (RIP to the organizer), but the raw demo video I posted surged to over 1.5 million views and I still see people reference it every so often. When the video was first growing popular, YouTube wrote and suggested I monetize it but I paid no attention to any of that and was actually oblivious to how many views it was getting until long after the fact. I only posted it I believe for some dinky portfolio demonstration at the time.
