Let's see you develop a similar quality prototype and still have a life in the same amount of time…

"Oh, North Wind, why frighten others?
In Nature's family all are brothers.
Puff and blow and wheeze and hiss;
You can't frighten Shingebiss.
Bring your frost and ice and snow;
I'm still free to come and go.
You can never frighten me,
One who never fears is FREE!"

Resurrection: If you think Nova is supreme, then you've obviously never played the original.

EDIT: Okay, so I enjoy the many choices for upgrades, but the ships kinda stink at the higher levels, and they force you into a sucky story.

How many scenarios have you played?Too many.
Absolute favorite BoE scenario?Falling Stars
When did you get the registered version of BoE for the first time?Don't care to remember.
What is the first third-party scenario you played?Four Seasons, I think.
Favorite all-around scenario designer?Alcritas
Out of your own scenarios, which do you feel is your best?The Foolish Giant

Have you ever named a place or character in a scenario after someone you know in real life?Heck yes.
What do you think is the absolute most overrated BoE scenario of all time?Anything by Vince Fizz.
What do you think is the absolute most underrated BoE scenario of all time?X
If you could fix one bug in BoE or the scenario editor, what would it be?Meh. I like a few bugs, like the whatchamacallits that Al describes in falling stars.
If you could add one new feature to BoE or the scenario editor, what would it be?Convenience.
What is your least favorite scenario out of those rated 7.0 or higher on CSR?I don't visit CSR that much, but probably one of TM's.
Which scenario do you think is the worst ever? There's lots of horribles, but only one can be the absolute worst.Moderator Land

If TM returned, and he and Kel continued to argue, do you think that should continue, or do you think they just have to duke it out? Kel would win, straight up.

Hackfest. For absolute beginners, otherwise it really REALLY is a waste of your time.
Essentially no plot, but has 3 small towns full of rats. These are modded rats, so they get tougher. Some treasure at the end.

I hope to use a lot from this to build on my next scenario, whatever it is.

*resurrection*

Dear Mr. V:

I eagerly await the day you release the source code for BoE. I am aware you had some difficulty with it being stuck on an old PC? What's the status on that, and -if- you're no whiz with tearing up old computers in order to get data from them, I could advise :P . (Though I imagine you'd have little trouble with that, as you work with computers for a living.)

Impatient and uninformed,
Desert Plah

Can you get The Foolish Giant onto the Scenario Board in this forum? It's been a very VERY long time since that thing's been updated, and I was wondering…

BoE Editor first-time problem in Tech Support

No, that wasn't the problem. They were cave-i-fied, and I had created them as grass towns. *sigh* grrr

EDIT: Oh hey crap, my first general protection fault error in the Editor! Wow. I have an old iMac in my closet here, I wonder if I should try on that…

I was playing around in my erased scenario, opened the one non-erased town, then switched towns a few times and discovered that one of the other towns somehow copied parts of the previous town and mixed it with a set pattern of the very last terrain spot. Very odd.

I moved my .exs file, copied it to my "BLADSCEN" folder, and opened it in BoE. My starting town was nothing but cave floor. I thought I must have accidentally skipped the first town, so I opened it in the Editor. As it turns out, all but one of my towns has been deleted/"cavved". Is there an explanation for this? That's like 4 hours work erased.
