->Website
It's about time I took the whole thing seriously. So I've put up a website outlining what I've done, what's left to be done (quite a lot), etc.

There aren't any downloads yet. There will be once I've gotten my engine actually drawing wonderboy and calculating gravity on him.

Emoticon Public Alpha 1.0 Released

->Website
Emoticon, my pet RTS project is finally ready for a public Alpha. To go along with this event, there is also an official Emoticon website, designed by Peter Kuchnio. The Alpha features a fully playable level so you can test out various parts of the game.

Please tell me what you think, the download is quite small (150kb), so all us people on 56k modems have no excuse either.

Help Wanted for Interactive Graphical MUD


8/10/2002 12:56:56 AM | Posted by: Rob "Ninja" Ford | Post a comment
I am looking for a few good men and women to help complete a modular, full-scale, 2-dimensional massively multiplayer world in which players can meet, interact, and explore. This is meant as an experiment in determining visual basic's ability to handle heavy network traffic and gameplay, and its modular design will allow for different graphic (WinGUI, DirectX, OpenGL?), audio, and network API's to be tested.
Currently needed are programmers experienced in massively multiplayer network architecture, DirectDraw design, or audio coding, as well as artists of all types. There is currently no website, so those interested in maintaining such a site are welcome as well. If you're interested, please feel free to email me or contact me on AOL Instant Messenger under "RMan3224."
