I would make a cool, quirky comment for this, but I don't feel like it right now.

Do you miss the good ol' days of WMP, when it used to be called WoD instead of WMP? Yeah, well, relive the days at

I got all the old versons of WoD archived on my other computer.

The three things I miss.
1 When this place was active.
2 ModSquad, so I could go there and dl all the newest mods.
3 When people here actually made stuff.

We dont need new blood, we need the few people left here to get off their asses and do something. Then when were active, that will attact new people.

Heres what I propose.

1. Make a new section of the forum, User Reviews. Then when one of us Dls a mod, weither it be RO or a single weapon. You go to the reviews section of the forum. Post a Quick or long review(its on you) give it a score(make a standard, perhaps like the 5U system we had, ie "4.5 out of 5 U's") Have some screenies, and then other people can chip in their comments on the reviews. This will bring people to here, and make this forum usefull.

2. Yo oldskool coders, start coding again. Get Kangus, Smoke, me, etc back in the game. Ive started coding again, but I gotta get my desktop comp back before I can really test anything. If theres actually some new content here to discuss and to have would make things more interesting.

3. Simple and easy, something everyone can do. Just come here ever couple of days and post a post or 2. If youre posting outside rants and raves, keep the posts on topic, and help keep activity up. Who wants to hang out at a dead forum?

So whatda think?

I am coding. Just not for an Unreal game.

Its an Unreal Engine game, jackass. and Im sure we all have it. So... postify your workdizzle. or at least linkify it.

Kangus and Wong are currently engrossed in one of those evil MMORPGs called WoW.

Sam Master just disappeared as far as I can tell.

Oh, an the forums are starting to turn on again, seeing as how the four of us have been posting more and more.

I didn't say it wasn't an Unreal engine game, I said it wasn't an Unreal game. Jackass. :O
I haven't released any of my stuff yet, but I'll start posting pictures an' junk if you want me to.

FYI, its DX. he showded me a pretty cool new threat indicator augmentation that rocked the party, LAN party that is, since no amount of coding can rock a real party.

Here's the spiffed up targeting aug 'Flare mentioned.

I stil think Tac-A-Lyzer is best. Though TacAn sounds better, the other is catchier! But showing their vitals, distance, laodout and such must be highest aug mentation, right?

Tac-A-Lyzer is goofy.
That shot's of the aug at its highest level. You get more data with each upgrade, and the highest level gives you telescopic vision that actually changes your FOV rather than just drawing a stupid, useless box showing a close-up of what you're pointing at.

1 When the whole blasted community was actuially active
2 When Modsquad actually had something to review.
3 yeah, that was nice. But then both RegX and Wong quit coding and nobody else was, so I lost any drive to get anything done myself. Such a shame.

The community is still active, its just not centralized any more. Finding stuff is much harder. For example, stuff is released on other forums, places that some BUFers never go.

Aww ****, I'm pissed. I had some more pics to put up, but all of a sudden they were not there. (BTW, this is a late post, this incident happened weeks ago). They were transfred from the old computer which had them to our laptop. But now all of the sudden, they aren't there. My mom went in a deleting things and it is likely she may have deleted it (I can' trust her on a computer by herself, just when I thought I could.) Sigh. I may have some more somewhere though.

You cant trust old people.

Its a shame, they got lots of knowledge and experience, but you just cant trust those old kinving weasles.

A centralised place would be nice. A Modsquad would be nice. But some things will get better when the next UT comes out... provided it doesn't suck.

Do you all still play UT? How often?

I haven't played UT in forever. I messed with Unreal a bit a while ago, though.

I dont play UT any more. Tried to play though Unreal a while back, quit about half way though.
