|FastaKilla||It is not even close to done, but I haven't worked on it in so long, I've decided to release what I have, open source. More details in the mygame.txt file. Where can I upload this? (431 kb)|
|AGI1122||You can upload your game here: http://www.agigames.com/index.php?action=games&option=upload_sci|
OK, I uploaded it. Now it is 458 kb (had to be zip, not rar).|
To get it, go to Chris's AGI website. As of 6pm mountain time Oct.31, it isn't there yet, but maybe soon.
Please tell me what you think. I would love to hear feedback, even if it is negative. You can be honest, I don't mind.
I didn't find your game.|
Peharps it needs to be approved.
I'll check it tomorrow.
|AGI1122||Yeah it had to be approved before anyone can download it(I scan it for viruses and make sure there isn't anything in there that shouldn't be), right now I am the only one who can approve games though, eventually once I get a bigger staff there should be a few people who can approve/disapprove games.|
|FastaKilla||It is there now ;)|
|Brian_Provinciano||Please oh please take me out of your game. I love Jay & Silent Bob and all of Kevin Smith's movies, but seeing me with a weed leaf on my eye is not cool. At the bare minimum, take the "Brian" view from SCI Studio out of your game and replace it with something else, and do not put "Brian" in the dialog anywhere. "A Man" or "Some Guy" is fine, but not Brian.|
Holy CHRIST! Now I'm really pissed off! I actually read the dialog--"I just want some, you know, white stuff.". So many people try to put me in their game. Unless it's in a VERY respectable role, I'm not interested! Chris, please remove the game pronto until FastKilla changes it.|
FastKilla, I have no idea what the hell you were thinking. Did you think I'd be impressed that you put me in your game as a coke addict with a pot leaf on my eye. I couldn't be much more pissed off with how someone would try and put me in a game. If you were trying to get noticed, you did, but I'll be a while before you get noticed in my GOOD books.
|AGI1122||Removed until it's updated to remove you.|
So many people try to put me in their game.
You know Brian. You're not alone to have Brian as name.
I'm wondering if somebody called Serguei get offenced if he/she sees I used their names in Serguei's destiny.,
Will I need to remove Serguei's destiny from my site?

Brian included a view of himself. Some might say it's his own fault!
I'm not saying it is though. I'm above such things. FastaKilla, just replace "Brian" with "Gary" and make him less muscular ;)
PS: Gary's not my real name, but it's similar. I'm NOT gonna tell you my real name!
|FastaKilla||Anyone can change it since it is open source. Just make a view of another dude and put it in. Then change the dialogue. The potleaf was a reflection of Bluntman's chest. You guys can change the text file too. I can't do anything yet because I deleted it, so somebody else might have to (whoever downloaded it and still has it). Sorry Brian, I was just trying to reference everything I could, movies, music, sci studio, etc. I should have asked permission.|
Brian included a view of himself
Where did you find it? In the template? Or in locker quest?
Resource > Add Sample > View > Brian|
|Oliver||Got to say...it would piss me off too If I would be some weed smokeing dude in a game that looks....not so good ;)|
Robin_Gravel wrote:So many people try to put me in their game.
1. I included a view of myself with the game.
2. the dialog states "Brian Says: My Pipes are King". That's my avatar!
It's not just a weed smoking dude, it's a crackhead--that's hardcore drugs. Weed is one thing, and would piss me off, but crack is just off the chart!
|FastaKilla||but I am an idiot. ;D|
First off, you trying to say something like " if anyone wants to use me in a game, they are welcome to" is like saying that I am a moron for complaining you put me in your game--as a crackhead. Second, I have a reputation to hold up, you do not--clearly if you did you would do something like this. I am working hard to become a known, respected computer programmer. I don't want people downloading some game made with my software, containing me as a crackhead--people will assume I actually had something to do with it.
I don't see why someone would decide to put you in their game for any reason regardless. Third, you state " don't care if you have me as a nerd, a ...", stop digging yourself into a bigger hole. Descrimination is not welcome here. So you're saying that someone being gay or a woman is a lesser human being, and on the same level as a terrorist or crackhead? Stop right there and stop making more enemies! You need to grow up!
|AGI1122||Approved and fresh out the oven for download.|

I just thought if they really liked you, they would put me in the game to get me back or something. I just listed nerd, woman, etc. as things I am not. I wasn't saying they are bad things. I wasn't trying to imply discrimination. Peace
|Brian_Provinciano||I looked through your game and see a lot of well done art and many already finished scripts. I see a lot of potential there. I was just peeved that I was in it as a crackhead, but other than that, I think it's going to be great if you finish it.|
|FastaKilla||Wow, 580 downloads so far. That would be really bad if that many people heard the name Brian and thought of him as being the crackhead from the game.|
|Brian_Provinciano||Are you trying to be sarcastic?|
|FastaKilla||No. I'm serious. 650 people downloaded it so far. I only thought maybe 20 or 30 people would get it. I guess a lot of people like Jay & Silent Bob.|
Alot of people are eager to see what games can/are being produced. (I downloaded it and deleted it)|
Jay and Silent Bob vs. SciStudio Game vs. C64
Hey Brian how many copies of Gnome game have been downloaded?
Hey Robin how many people have downloaded the c64 game?
These questions are actually rhetorical because I would estimate the amount to be rather large,
My point: quit trying to brag about the number of people who have looked at your game, the difference between looking and liking should be your primary concern. I haven't seen anybody (except Brian) have any real words of remote praise for it.
I for one would like to suggest that instead of giving me a traced tour of posters and screenshots how about using them to tell a story or make a game that consists of more than just easter eggs, and finally if you are abandoning it's development, don't bother releasing a demo!
P.s. if brian didn't want to be associated with the context of your game then lay off, your little jabs and off hand remarks are getting old...remember he was the only one who had any words of encouragement for you.
Well ... 650 downloads so far, that's fine statistics for our fastakilla, hmm? |
But that number dowsn't imply, how many of 'em have enjoyed that game. Maybe they got rid of it after a short try? I for my part would have done so.
I have looked at Robin Gravels naturette-series for some short glances (I 'm not a gamer), as well as this Voodoo Girl thing from Andrew Baker, gosh, the art in those games is cool. It reminds me of the old times with the C64 (Zak McKracken, Maniac Mansion especally). I like the look of those games. this is more than nostalgia, it's full of remembering good childhood times.
What I do not appreciate is abuse of persons as well as any tinkering with drugs be it in games be it in real. It's crap enough round there with shit and weed and so on. Here in vienna, they deal in plein-air at some places.
Mr. fastakilla, you are to ask persons if they permit you the usage of their identity in your game/stories and you ARE to respect them. No shit, no weed no discrimination of other ppl.
[if you want to o for dinner with the devil,
you'll need a *big* cutlery]
Hey Robin how many people have downloaded the c64 game?
I don't know because I don't have counters on my site,
698 downloads at now are impressive for a game who was released since tuesday.

That's because the most c64 graphic used in the game is 160x200. AGI looks like some c64 games.
|FastaKilla||Dang it. I keep accidentally getting people mad. I wasn't bragging, I was scared, because the game is really crappy at least for the time being.|
I agree. I had a lot of story (on paper, not in the game), and a better map, etc. but I am so bad at programming that I couldn't find a way to put it in. If you look at my scripts, you'll notice they are all the most basic, easiest things to do. I read the tutorial and the help files and didn't understand well. I released as abandoned because I most likely won't continue it, but if I do it won't be for a very long time. I figured if somebody wanted to make a Simpsons game I have 1 good pic (inside Moe's) they could use if they wanted.
You are a moron and your game is stupid.
there's no reason for anyone (except maybe brian) to be upset about this game or the fact that it is released, or anything like that. brian wanted his name out, it was taken out. brian didnt want to be mean, he just didnt want to be associated with drugs, and i think both brian and fasta know that neither of them meant any disrespect when it comes down to it.|
the game was put out there b/c he was allowing anyone to pick it up and turn it into a finished game. if it doesnt appeal to anyone, well, that's fine, but it's not a reason to call anyone a moron or anything like that.
i think fasta had been working on this game for a while, asked questions on how to make it, put alot of effort into the pics, and just got frusterated because coding can be tough for beginners (i know because i am one and i am confused alot).
You are so incredibly right, but of course we live in democracies, don't we? No STASI in any corner - well maybe Big Frosh is watching you, hm? - and df's looking round the corner occasionally, but no one ccomes along and forbides free speech as long as each one respects the other one.
It is of course in the reach of your understanding, that democracy implies the Right of Free Speech - roughly said - , hm?
Well I have taken my right to speak freely and I have choosen the opportunity to remind someone certain of some basic rules.
as for meaning and saying ... What would be the sense of saying something when you don't mean it?
I agree with you on this: there is no need for calling names (it's said this way isn't it?).`
stay safe gosh and take it with a grain of salt.
ps: programming isn't the difficult part. Coding itself isn't it. Thinking in algorithms is the way to go for creating programs. Once you come around this one, programming is like cooking.
