Hi ababagalamaga,

Welcome to the forums. Hope you find it as rewarding as the rest of us have. This forum is often my first port of call whenever I have an awkward error on my PC. There’s usually someone who can help . It’s also an interesting place to investigate or to just browse generally for ideas and inspiration as well as being inhabited by loads of helpful people.

Oops. Sorry, didn't see your reply at the time (this is my every 6 months or so check in). These days too used to forums sending an Email about replies. Does this forum these days do this?

Anyway, yep still in Cyprus. Apart from a few years back in the UK (girlfriend, now wife, wasn't ready to move to Cyprus) I've racked up about 9 years out here. Got to love the weather!

Thanks for the link to the codez! Ah, those were the days. I'd give anything for those times, when trolls were rare and just cheeky posts....

Cheers

Been ages since I've visited. Warms my heart to see the old crew still around and of course plenty of new avatars (faces) too. Looks like the forum's had a few updates. When did the mod badge change from gold to blue?

It is a bit quieter eh? I think the recent(ish) activity by TGC on Steam specifically has me visiting the site after nearly a decade long hiatus.

Mostly lurking though. This is my second post in several years.

I've been here nearly 15 years(though technically nearly 20 if you count the grey forums)! ...though my badge says 10, not sure why. I miss the grey forums, when I was super young and naive about game development.

What is tha_rami up to these days? We worked on a game together back in the day.

Became a bit of an indie game celebrity. Co-founded Vlambeer and made some well received games (Ridiculous Fishing, Nuclear Throne), and more recently he's become quite well known as a regular speaker at conferences and things.
Wonder how many other TGC alums have made good? Reckon we could get a blue plaque put up.

I peek in once in a while when I get too nostalgic about the days of eld when things were simpler and one could still dream up interesting game and tool ideas

Nice to see some familiar names on this now mostly dead forum though!

I'm still here since 2005, started way back early 80s using the Vic-20 (aged 12), BBC micro +, Amiga 500+ doing basic, assembly. Am now 50, blimey how time flies. Doesn't seem that long ago we were all huddling around our hand held bulky space invader games at school.

I come and check every once in awhile, but my life is so different now. I miss all the dumb stuff I used to post here. I just went on a trip realizing FPSC is open sourced and free. My brain exploded with nostalgia just now when I built a little level and went around blasting that spikey scifi head guy

I'm still here too.

Pretty much what flashing snall said, and like Bored of the Rings, I started out on a Vic-20 too.
So, I have always loved Dark Basic (classic and pro), and BASIC is why I love AppGameKit too!

Figured I'd poke my head in here. Was mostly active on the old official forums and a few of the other communities that seem to be long gone. I haven't done any game development since I became a professional programmer, sadly. I've been getting the itch lately though. Hello to anyone that might remember me.

I know the feeling. When you sit at work all day writing code (mostly fixing old code some idiot wrote), you don't feel like doing it at home.

Some of these names look familiar. @LBFN, @GG, @Jeku etc. how're you all holding up?

Haven't looked at this website in probably 2 years. I am looking at it now though, because I started working on an open source and cross-platform reimplementation of the DarkBASIC language and I've basically forgotten everything about DarkBASIC and its gloriously horrible syntax.
https://github.com/thecomet/opendarkbasic

In testing my parser I've stumbled across more than a few curious "features" of DBP. For example:


This compiles and prints 42. That makes no sense.

In DBC, this will print "2":
