Quoth the FMI main page..

Finally, would you be interested in buying Free Monkey / UTXMP merchandise and assorted other crap? We're considering setting up our own CafePress store, so let us know what you think of this idea on our forums.

So, any interest?

Maybe, maybe not. Depends on what merchandise exactly. I'm sure that anything that carries the xmp will have fans interested ;) .

I agree, depends on the merchandise... if you have some collectables, like limited edition figurines of the xmp classes, maybe.

CafePress doesn't do custom merchandise. They have a set catalog of items (hats, tshirts, coffee mugs, etc) that are the foundation for every CafePress store. They just stamp your logo (very poorly I might add) on the merchandise and ship it to you.

I bought a RealUltimatePower t-shirt from there once... All they do is iron-on a cheaply made logo onto plain t-shirts. It lasted about 3 washes. :mad:


I would buy XMP/FMI stuff, but not from CafePress.

Last year when U2XMP was my favorite game, and alt.uk were kicking ass in the winter cup, me and my girlfriend got some of her pants and drew "I'm Hacking This" and an arrow to her naughty parts on the front.

Could be an idea....

I would buy XMP/FMI stuff, but not from CafePress.

my thoughts exactly. I've heard that the stuff from cafepress are total crap, but unless there is a better place to get hats and t-shirts for a reasonable price with out a lot of money upfront, then cafefpress it is.

www.printmojo.com may be an alternative.

the only thing id be intrested in is a gunner action-figure to place on my desk - t-shirts etc. I can get from my local print shop with the motives I want..

I would like a little action figure/model of a Ranger

So i can jump on it and get all my frustration out from getting killed by them in U2. And make it sturdy so i can run it over with my car to gutblow over and over again

I'd get a mug, or a pint glass or something. As long as the press wouldn't wash off after a few uses. Like others, I've heard that Cafe's stuff was not very impressive. I thought a saw a picture of one of you guys wearing a black tshirt with the gigantic UTXMP logo on the front? Was I having another hallucinogetic wet dream about the sexy sexy dev team again or was that real?

Either way, one of those three I'd probably buy. Gotta show love for the monkey, you guys haven't made a dime for all of your hard work and I'd have np's with giving a little. I played XMP for about a year and if buying some cool merchandise for a few lousy dollars would help get you some.. it's definitely worth it. I plan to play UTXMP for a while.

If I was to find a ranger action figure beneath my Christmas tree...*sobs joyfully*


But then again, it may prevent me from playing with the software ranger :)
