Just wondering how many of the old crowd is still around... Indi I've seen lots and on the DevNet, it's good to see my coding role model hasn't gone , then Chroma is still around, and I think I saw good old Rapscallion once too. Anyone else? I'm afraid I don't recongize most of the faces around here...

Hey, we need an pinned 'Introduce Yourself' thread!

I'm here, not really been on the RGT forums much, but I am definatly here!
How you doing?
I been around since 1.03... or maybe 6, I honestly don't remember. I've known about DB since 1.0, and I've seen every site DBS has put up... if that counts for anything
Anyway, I was previously known as bender888, up until 2 or 3 years ago.
Wow, now that I think back, that's a long time!

Nice to see you on the forums Denki .

Flame!!!! I was hoping you'd still be around. I think I've been around longer than you but you were always a much better coder ... your stuff looked very impressive (didn't download much with my 56k back then). It's wonderful to see you here

I remember you Dynamo, but strangely I don't remember Scott. I suppose it's because I tend to remember memorable names more than I remember nonmemorable names, it's a memory thing.

I'm pretty much back after a lengthy absence (about 6 months). Been around since 1.04 (I think). Around July 2000 if I remember rightly. On the old old forum I think I joined a week or two after/before Indi.

Dr Av still in Blitz? He is the main person that made me keep with DB at the time (Sphere was really cool).

Cheers

Oh yeah, bet I'm the only one here that hasn't installed DBP yet. Had it since the 12th but have been away for the weekend... Damn, it's downstairs but I'm too tired.....

I am 99% probably lying in bed right now... so don't blame me for crappy typing

I’ve been here since 1.03.

Most users migrated to the Mad Merlin/RGT forums right after the new yabbse board was setup (and shut down) on darkbasic.com - all other users just fell off the face of the planet (although I have seen a few old characters pop up again here e.g. Steverino).

Dr Avalanche uses Blitz exclusively now:

Hi,

Does it count if you don't post much (hardly ever ?!)
I've been lurking for quite a bit, had a couple of games included on the DB 'samples' CD a while ago (Loco Commotion, etc).
Good to see some of the old names again.

oh good lord: hubdule, smartass... it's been so long, and then there is magellan, halo, bloodlocust Aprodigy... wow it's been way to long!
Looks like the good doctor has been busy! Sphere racing looks absolutly AMAZING, lander is coming along great, and terrain shader 2 looks excellent.
DR AV is really showing the power of BB3D. Too bad he doesn't do the same for DBP. Or will he? He may come back to the light side yet! (j/k)

Newbi2basic, EVERYONE remembers you. Recall what a hububb you started when you tried to change your name to EyeOfTheBeholder? We all love ya .

Flame, I agree... we need to all get together with popcorn, beer, champaigne, steak, and a good bonfire and talk about the old days .

Wow! Thanks for the accolades! I got an entry on my guestbook to say you guys were talking about me! It's really nice to be remembered.

Thanks for the positive comments on my current work, Sphere Racer is damn near completion and should be available in the shops soon (excuse the pimpage!).

With regards to coming back to DB, if I do it's not going to be for a while, I've got a bunch of projects in the pipeline which are all blitz. Lander is one of them, and I've started on a 3rd person platformer too.

I'll have to check this forum more often from now on, I really like keeping up to date on what everyone's up to. I quite often see posts in my guest book from old DBers!

** Climbs onto a soap box to deliver a heart wrenching speech **
I see the day when Blitzers and DBers will get along, will share media, share knowledge, share fluids... err... okay maybe not fluids... But work on projects together, both sides of the fence have massive talent, be it in art, modelling, map making, and so on.

Keep up the great work guys!

Speak to you soon.

PS. If you guys still use matrices I wrote a thing in DB ages ago that create transition tiles between rock and grass. I've re-written it with more options and the ability to make your own transitions, you might find it useful for your projects. Please don't flame me for this, it's something you may find handy, it's just a tool for people who make games, forget what it's written in.

Cheers, Rob.

Ya, I was thinking about setting up a DB/BB website/forum, but I don't think I am the person to do it, because I have never used BB. A good thought though! There is no reason why we can't work together, there is as the good docter said, enourmous talant and potential on both sides!

In regards to your texture app, I am VERY interested in Version 2. Is that out yet? I couldn't find a link on your page, and BTW- The sphere download link is busted!
