AlienME

What has happened to AlienME? Is it cancelled? It seemed very promising... :(

And another question, can I use images in my sig?

Hi Kumiorava!

No idea on AlienMe  :-/

Yes to your 2nd question.  Visit http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~starcontrol/board/YaBBHelp/posting.html#yabbc to learn how.

Just a warning...Large images (in screen size and download size) will not be tolerated...

An example of putting an image in a sig has been added to my sig.

Well, being one of the three working on it, I can give you a pretty reliable answer - it kind of petered out... If that's how you spell it.

For myself, I procrastinate a lot, and considering how huge we wanted the game to be, it involved far too much writing for one person (i.e. me). And it won't come back on-line any time soon, as I don't have the energy or time.

I still have the work I did, though - if anyone's interested, and they clear it with Nick&Chris Bischoff, I'd be happy to mail it to them.

Oh damn, I waited so long for AlienME :'( Oh well, It's good they're making The Ur-Quan Masters :)

Oh, and Chad, how big can the sig images exactly be? ??? Is the one I have right now too big?

Hey Kumiorava,  yeah that is way too big.  Its the size of an entire post!  Try to keep it the size of your profile image or smaller.  

I *have* visited other video game forums like those for the Mechwarrior games.  It is highly annoying how large those images are.  I stopped visiting because every post had an image the size of yours after the post.

But, I really like that image :)

Heh, if that was a joke, that was a pretty good one :)

I'll probably just not allow images in sigs...  :'(

Sorry to butt in into the middle of a conversation, but im kind of curious Kumiorava... you wouldn't happen to be finnish would you? If your not, you might be interested in the fact that your name has a very strange meaning in that language...

I presumed you were both Finnish, because of your names - and I was right. Hurray!

As I've mentioned in the past, I like Fins/Finland. This means nothing, I just thought I'd mention it.

I wish the Moomin cereal didn't have such an unpleasant taste and texture. I did like the Little My I got in the box, though.

Is RmM still about? Or Fub, even? Where have all the old Fins gone?

Well, you guessed right, but for the wrong reasons. ;) My name isn't finnish, it doesn't even mean anything in that language, that I'm aware of anyway. I wont tell you what it means though, that's a mystery for each and every one to puzzle over :)

Nice to know you like us anyway, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...

Oh God, Virophers a mod! ;)

I still have everything on my harddrive. Viropher's story was fantastic, sure V post it up here, maybe you can do it a bit everyday and let the story unfold that way. There is enough to fill a small novel.

I was playing around with it last week, its still really cool. I watched a clip from the new starflight3 game and ame beats it hands down in its preprepreprepprepre alpha state. Maybe someday we can do something with it, but I thinkt he project as it was is pretty dead. It was fun while it lasted.  ::)
