  1. Now, that doesn't sound wonderfully bad. :wink:
  2. Heh, I just now noticed the Battle Cruiser score ticks. (Y) EDIT: and hey! Those are some of the datacorder chips scribbled out, upside-down, across the top. :D
  3. and really? :D Say, whatever happened to that Lucretius guy? He seemed really cool.
  4. Tell me about it, and I've always felt like I'd missed the train as far as the high-point of the SQ Community goes, considering I hadn't entered it until 5 years after SQ7 had been cancelled. The fact that the two original authors are making this one, and Gary Owens is narrating, is enough to make an avid fan pass out from excitement. Hell, I can't stop checking in to see what happens next, despite I have a foreign language presentation due tomorrow morning in a class I may wind up flunking - but I just don't flat out give a shit (the honey badger wouldn't). What next? We find out th
  5. Hehe. Wow. I hadn't known of that confession from Mark Crowe. I don't suppose we have to pretend it was intentional, but I'll say for practical purposes it worked out just fine for me (I was 9-years-old, of course, at the time of playing it). We could compare this scenario to if an artist had accidentally spilled red wine over a dark red area of his/her painting where it is unnoticeable. Whether or not there's anything wrong with it becomes, interestingly, quite a philosophical debate. :)
  6. Just speaking the truth, my friend. Back to Mad_C33 (and ya'll in general), can you guys tell me why so many seem to see the Gippazoid Novelty event(s) as a plot inconsistency...? I was always under the impression the "sense" of contradiction on Gippazoid's part and randomness in coming after Roger was nothing more than a great joke in reference of mail spam, telephone harassment, and similar laughable things that exist in the real world. Kind of like how when you sign up for a car insurance quote via an online site promising never to give away your personal information, and you sudden
  7. You speak English well enough that I never would have guessed it wasn't your first language. And, hey, Troels, that part in your video when you get pissed and grab the beer and start opening it. (Y) Great stuff! ;)
  8. (Y) Johnathon likes this... ...minus the statement: ...because, to him, the following fact: ...makes the truth of the author's intent clear. Vohaul did begin with human flesh tone. Wether or not he was intended to STILL have that tone by SQ2 is unclear due to the differing sprites in the game and the Space Piston documentation. Even if we want to assume that by the time SQ4 rolls around he is supposed to be blue in tone (having faith in the game box), there's no reason - not by deduction nor induction - that VSB should have assumed his family to be blue as well. It clearly
  9. Olzen, Granted that I'm always accused by others even in my non-internet life of being a 'realist' or a "very detail-oriented person," I'll admit that it's likely the majority would not take issue with it the same as I would. But for whatever it's worth, I find that fan-fiction is much more enjoyable when the player is able to cross-reference it with the officials in the series as much as possible without experiencing any discrepancies. You say that's the benefit of fan-fiction. I'll agree that fan-fiction is fun and good for extending and padding, and even for solving problems posed i
  10. I was actually waiting for someone to point that out. The gamebox is such a vital marketing tool, and I'd doubt the two guys wouldn't have had enough say over it before it was distributed. I find the green of his skin on the box to convey the same perception regardless. When it comes to printing and publishing, a number of techniques are utilized to take greatest advantage of things like tones and color compliments, to draw the eye where it is desired or to make things appear more aesthetic. Arguing green versus blue is like arguing apples to apples, where blue or green to caucasian a who
  11. Guys, I don't believe the SQ Companions should be taken as canon as they contradict so strongly what the real authors of the series have said/would have to say in more than one instance. Olzen, Let me first tell you I am one of those avid fans who quickly downloaded VSB upon its release and have played through some of it already. Much kudos to you and your team; but I've got to admit if you chose to make both Vohaul's blue-skin toned, I don't find much credibility in that proposal, because Vohaul refers to the reason for his oddly appearance in SQ2 when he says "...being [his] own
  12. Yes, and it becomes not so much a concern of what's already there to work with: more of how you utilize and compose it.
  13. You'll be amused to know knowledge of this has been eating away at me since having played the SQ2 remake that has just been released. When I came up with the original idea for SQ:OEOE, I reasoned Monolith Burger, in the timeline of the series between an sq1 prequel (which is what I was to make) and SQ3, would not be too overbearing; though now it'll seem more as though the idea had been inspired by my supposed playing of sq2 remake. A similar though not quite as obvious example, is Agatron (the name of the planet which will be the test subject of the SG in my prequel, a name I derived as
  14. Think nothing of it, my good man. :wink: I stared at them for half the game's development before it suddenly dawned on me one day... Roger has boobs. And forever shall it be since fixing them would take another year worth of re-renders. I'll tell you honestly, I didn't even notice that Roger had... moobs ;) until Stellar mentioned it in the adventure. I wonder if your attempt to rectify the situation was quite as necessary as you'd anticipated, Chris.
  15. Nice (Y) Mind if I post a link to your site on mine?
  16. Indeed, but I shall resist the temptation to torture the player beyond fair game (pun pun) :oops: More interestingly, I have also devised a revolutionary manner of utilizing the elements of the game beyond the interface (I could say which ones, but I won't squeal them just yet) to greatly improve interaction, experience, and replayability which as I am aware has not been tried in any other adventure game (this idea was inspired by an element of Gold Rush which appeared in the game very briefly, and perhaps not executed to it's fullest or obvious potential, and so I doubt many would think
  17. Chris, Sslaxx, yes, I observe such is the most common hurdle for any fan-game producer or production team. Mr. Pleimert (SQ Historian Extraordinare), I am glad to read such enthusiasm coming from one such as yourself regarding the fan-game. A status bar did cross my mind a week ago as I was making a quick website appearance update. My biggest goal, however, is to wrap up the demo for day 1. I'm afraid it won't be ready for release by the next update, but I aim to have it prepared for this coming August. (I actually mentioned on the website having desired to have it completed quite well
  18. Brandon, you took the words right out of my mouth. Let me just say, Frans should really get off his ass and start posting some news updates. This has been a fantastic new year, and while I understand he has stopped updating the site long ago, it'd be a real shame for SQ.Net to miss covering these releases. :oops: :wink:
  19. Fair enough; yet if he does by chance have anything against me, let me just say I can empathize with my previous contribution to that. A good few years of working in various professional fields as well as exposure to the academic environment certainly helps sculpt you into a wiser and more articulate individual. We were both quite young when all that shit hit the fan. Though, I'd have to maintain the opinion that it was a personality clash more than anything. We're both very passionate people, and I've come to learn over the years how much the same qualities that make me into a resilient,
  20. Heh, Well... I don't, as of today, have any problems with Alistair that I am aware of. I do hope he is doing well though. I never see him log in at this place anymore. I suppose he's just busy with life? But, in case any curiosity has arisen to the matter, "No, I am not spong/the_wilco/topper or any of his equivalents, nor have I ever been." If anyone wants to know what I'd have to say about "spong" (only good things, are what I have to say), you can send me a pm. After getting my response, you would understand why I can't post the explanation publicly.
  21. So you guys do believe that was him. I myself am pretty certain as well, though I ask because my memory is slightly hazy. If such is the case, that they are the same person, I can tell you I did know at one point what his real name was, where he was from, and why he was the way that he was, though I'm not certain I could consider myself at liberty to point out such things in public, for reasons one would only understand after the explanation were made. I can tell you though, he was never quite what you have believed.
  22. Would you say that "the_wilco" ever went by the alternate nick "topper-is-back-and-really" or "spong"?
