Re: What kind of music are you into?

I too think we had a thread like this, but can't seem to find it either. I'm up for anything melodic with less focus on the rhythm. My argument for music is that it should tell a story with the words of melody. This also means that the music is just fine without lyrics. A masterful composition shoul...

Re: Unofficial Star Control 2 Chat

You can always start a new channel, but considering that the fandom for this game is relatively small it would be better to centralize the efforts a bit. If we have 3 guys on one channel, 3 on another, and two on the last one, each coming on at different times we won't be seeing much activity. Then ...

Re: Games other than Star Control

Entire GUI, not. There are tilesets which replace the ASCII graphics with actual sprites. You may like those. Phoenus is often used.

You may want to check some Captnduck tutorials.

Re: What are you eating?

http://plantmonster.homeip.net/pictures/food/strawberries_001.jpg Bought a 5kg box of strawberries today (24 euros) and froze it for winter. Gotta get another one, then visit my hometown and do some foraging there, making juice from red/blackcurrants. Was quite a feat to carry that 5kg box through ...

Re: Games other than Star Control

http://plantmonster.homeip.net/pictures/packed/grimrock_001.jpg Decided to purchase Legend of Grimrock since it was on sale, if not for anything else, then for that stunt they did for that handicapped player. I wasn't originally that interested since the entire World of Xeen system is a bit "old" a...

Re: Anyone up for multiplayer / succession style Dwarf Fortr

Quite early on it tells me to prepare my anus. Is that short for something, or a check to see if I'm paying attention? The military menu is probably the worst of all the menus in the game, so it's a joke on that. It's a pain to browse your 200 dwarves and find the one who has the correct weapon ski...

Re: What are you eating?

Hm, I'm not a big fan of maksalaatikko. It has a pretty sweet taste in it. Never turned a plate off when someone has served some, but I would have preferred something else. The Chinese was about 2.5 portions of the pictured magnitude. A place by the university gives the largest take aways in town I ...

Re: Net Melee Balance Mod ported to UQM 0.7

So it seems. I wonder why he used an external service? The wiki can offer files, or does that require some special permissions?

Re: Net Melee Balance Mod ported to UQM 0.7

I just checked the Balance Mod wiki page and noticed that some guy called Amitmarkel has made an OS X build. This is much appreciated, and you are destined for great things. EDIT: Ah, seems Amithmarkel is the fella with whom I had very laggy game with landlines, but a pretty good game using his 3g c...

Re: So, what were/are you favourite games?

Cool listing. Plenty of familiar box art there.
