Cutscenes are extremely sexy and visual, but if you want to be boring and descriptive you'll probably want to use either a mix of cutscenes and messages, messages, or actual talking dialog.

My god you people are old. The first time I played a computer game was around 1995 when my big brother deigned to let me have a try at whatever he was playing.

And isn't an ellipse this: ". . ." ? Rather than this: "..." ?

GAH! There is no "who"! My world has rotted into an ORANGE!

And is it really necessary to second your own opinion, Alorael? (See the above post if you're confused)

And lastly, thread necro is for ugly people. Even if Salmon already did it.

ID-I0T33? Id-101? I|)i0t? The idea was to mask the word "idiot".

Anyways, I don't like this poster. At all. Threads all over the place, lies, and not even good ones... This guy needs to settle down if he doesn't want to be ostracized. And the idea was to halt this thread long enough for a mod to get here and call down the holy thunder and locks from the sky.

Oh, so that's why whenever I tried to open Alint the screen just blinked and nothing happened... Oh well. I wish someone would have told me before I e-mailed Overwhelming... Then again, he did tell me it was working perfectly, so when it didn't work again I assumed he was just being his usual self.

Moral of the story: Overwhelming has a version of the Windows Alint. I don't know if it works yet, though.

God. I hate three hour long repetitions.


I think the word is recital. Pretty much the same normal meaning, but "repetition" has the connotation of being boring. And it's not usually used in the place of "recital".

I also got a Yamaha Tenor Saxophone for Christmas. Yayness! Except it was a couple Christmas'es ago and I've already pretty much destroyed it. A word of advice from an expert: do not drop your trombone while on parade. It will not endear you to the crowd or your supervisor. Or your peers, for that matter...

You can't join all three sects. Wait, scratch that. You can, just not all at once. And you can join as long as you keep each sect civil and by not decapitating political organizations. High leadership helps convince the three servile leaders to let you in without having you kill someone or do something irreversible.

EDIT: Ah, okay. I suggested some solutions which are inappropriate now that I've seen the thread (which you rudely did not link to, thus stalling my attempts to better serve you) I understand the problem completely now that I've seen the thread. I'll notify a mod, and I'm sure he/she'll get right on your case. Just relax. If anyone can fix this problem, it's a mod.

You see, it has to do with an ID-10 T33 problem, which I've heard of from some of the other posters. In rare cases, the ISP trackers Spidweb uses to identify you cause your computer to react... badly to Spidweb games. There's really nothing to do except wait for a mod to come around. That or someone who's experienced with computers, as many of the older members are.

Well, if you would all just read The Giver... :rolleyes:

And as for the emotion-inhibiting pills, they're actually for suppressing romantic and sexual desire. Wikipedia concurs, by the way:
quote:
From Wikipedia:The Community maintains this process using pills which suppress romantic and sexual feelings.
And the Elders should give the residents a choice when they're old enough to make descisions (and not impair those descisions with propaganda). The choice? Live in utopia, eliminate all pain and suffering, forget everything. The catch is you can't bring all the pain and suffering that makes you real in with you.

The other option is to live out in a cold and heartless world, where you have to make choices and take risks. You can succeed, but you can fail miserably and horribly as well.

The 1 Dollar Question in General
Agent
Member # 5814
Profile #47
I am willing to kill anyone and anything that is a) trying to kill or seriously injure something else and b) going against my wishes.

Some soldier in Iraq? Don't give a crap. Live or die, it doesn't matter. (for both sides)

Some robber, shaking down a faceless person? BAMF! Good-bye.

A guy who's trying to kill his girlfriend because she tried to kill his entire family? Divine protection for him if I can manage it.

If some moron's shooting into a playground and I can't miss, uh... HAVE A NICE LIFE! Oh, sorry. It's over. Good try, though.

I can put a price on lives: the life of another.

And pinpoint murder is just too enticing to resist, especially with corrupt people all over the place. The only moral dilema I have here is whether "grievious injuries" are good enough to warrant death. Probably so.

Upon deep consideration of myself and the world at large, I've come to the conclusion that my post was extremely similar to Archmagi Micael's and so have selflessly removed the greater part of it.

A/E 3. It also points out the irony on the sign. It goes something like

CAUTION! SWAMP! (This is about the most useless sign you've ever seen)

EDIT: You can find this sign on the coast of the same lake Ghikra's(sp) on. It's a little farther ahead. And in the middle of a swamp, in case you haven't heard.
