Re: They rode once on the grid, but now they're only a memor

Iceman was one of the most prominent players when I found the game. What happened was something we weren't going to discuss. Frankly, I don't think any of us knows at this point. How about aliens? I totally saw lots of potential UFOs lately. Birds, a meteor, the ISS (not a compromise between IS and ...

Re: Why we use fake names

Somehow people think that if they got something for free, they're entitled to more of it. All while they are indebted.

You could've linked to it.

Is this a necromancy record? Almost 9 years. Coincidentally, I'm pushing 10. :o

Re: Can play on hosted server but cannot host !?

takburger's advice doesn't apply to a LAN.

Windows 7 might have something to do with it. Antivirus software might also be the culprit.

Re: If you are from the US, Red Bull probably owe you $10

It would be silly to believe that Red Bull does much for you. That's only because shenanigans are so pervasive in advertising that this is expected, however. I'm sick of that. Tell me about your product but cut the crap. In that regard I'm happy advertisers still get burned.

Re: Multi-binding

If quaternions could be used like I described (it would have to be implemented, not just conceived of), you wouldn't be able to teleport. It would take incredibly lucky timing to even get back in exactly the right plane. It would necessarily be a detour, too, assuming no walls are in the way in the ...

Re: Gaming music

I used to make levels for the game Descent and many fan-made levels broke physical reality by creating environments inside other spaces. In the drawing below I have a corridor leaving a cube then intersecting it. The game would not render the parts of the corridor as it ran through the cube but you...

Re: Gaming music

Yeah, I used to think it's all underground (and even under the ocean) when I was a kid. There's some giant dome whose dark blue color suggests I'm correct. I can see how a solid dark blue color can pass for the ocean given the technical limitations of the time. The problem is that the spatial arran...

Re: Gaming music

and Lego Island (I linked that already in another context I think - the music during the racing game sounds a bit like early Pink Floyd to me for some reason) :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfpnAYSorNM I just wonder how they managed to fit all that inside a tiny hill. The union of the island an...
