Forum software tips, yet again in General

When I was considering changing Polaris's forum software, I did quite a bit of research into different kinds. Actually, I think I posted some of my favorites if you want to check there.

I used this list on Wikipedia as my primary resource, you might want to look at that.

I could be wrong, but I thought I read a thread a while ago where Jeff was toying with the idea of a comedy RPG.

A quirky RPG might be a very good departure for Jeff. In terms of old school RPGs done in that nature, I've seen a lot of stinkers, (i.e. The Adventures of Blork) but you also have games like Earthbound which manage to be a bit off beat without making you cringe.

Why does Jeff make all the games for Mac first? in Avernum 4

Or maybe those stats were compiled shortly after that one Spiderweb game was ported to Linux.

Forgive me if I'm misinformed, but somehow I doubt that even a very well equipped x86 (I'm assuming that's the Linux build you're speaking of) could emulate a PPC processor and run OS X 10.4 at speeds twice that of a comprably equipped PPC computer.

Emulating Windows at that speed is a bit more believable, simply because you wouldn't have to emulate a different processor.

INTJ? ESFP? in General

Through rather informal and unscientific surveys, I've found the percentage of NT's on "sophisticated" boards tends to be a fairly consistent 50% most of the time.

On more unsophisticated boards (say, boards devoted to first person shooters or something) you'll find that they're a small minority.

I know from long experience that I'm an ENTP.

It's not altogether too surprising that this community seems to be almost exclusively "J"

I'm sorry to have to make this announcement here on Spidweb, but I'm afraid it's a bit impractical to let people know on an individual basis and I'd rather not just have people think that Polaris has gone down or something.

For various reasons, we've recently switched hosting companies. The move to the new host itself went rather flawlessly, yet there are some issues concerning getting the polarisboard.org domain name to point in the right direction. (i.e. the registrar lost my account information)

Not long after the move was done, the old boards went down as was expected. Unfortunately, this all happened rather quickly so it left quite a few people in the dark. The board has been up, but for the next few days you'll need to use the IP address to access it:

This links to the board via the IP

Most likely you can't load it because Polaris is in the process of switching hosts. Although the domain remains the same.. it just has to be redirected first.

I quite like my boxy glasses. That one's pretty recent. Didn't the last thread devolve into a Mr. and Mrs. Spidweb contest or something similar?

Hmm. I don't remember a lot of that, ADoS. Spies? You make it sound a lot more organized and determined than it ever was.

This has already been discussed at length here

New distribution...? in General

The relatively low ammount of interest in Spidweb games, and a moderately safe shareware code system works fine now. I can buy a game and be playing it within a day, instead of waiting for a CD to ship. Shareware is a good concept, and small companies like Spidweb rely on the concept to sell their games. I don't believe that Spidweb has a huge problem with piracy, I don't know about others, but I purchased every Spidweb game I own.

People who buy shareware tend to be a little more benevolent towards small time producers than large companies.

Feh, didn't see the crack part.

I eat babies

Feh, that's me, annoyed at my friend for coming over with his new laptop and annoying me when I needed to sleep. I look oddly young in this picture. Feh.

Gay men also like me... I'm rather flattered, naturally. Yet somehow it seems that I'm attracting people well, just not the right sex. Maybe it's time I try a new aftershave or something....

Well, anything by Paul van Dyk (But specificly the album Out There and Back) is a good electronic feel, but not too spacey too diminish the fantasy setting of the game. I'd also reccomend Bond, which is a great neoclassical group.

Edit: I think we've had topics like this before....

Weird archery bug! in Blades of Avernum

I remember my archer in A3 having an infinate arrow, which was nice for my lazy self. Since BoA apparently lacks this, I stopped using bows and started putting my archer's stats into missle weapons. If you can find a Blessed Sling (It's not that hard) they do a fairly high level of damage and don't require any ammo.

Deus Ex is possibly one of the greatest games of all time. Unfortunately, it's sequal, though enjoyable, dumbs it down. Gone is the skill system, cigarrettes and all the little useless things that made the game what it was.

Well, for newbie bashing, TM and Alec are more than enough. TGM was, indeed, more charming when his posts were mostly reprocessed pork meat.

Yeah, if you ask someone out and they say no, it makes things pretty awkward. Only if you know them well though. Good point Motrax.

Ah, but the fact that things are stagnating a bit on PDTS doesn't mean that the forum, or the revolution, is a failure just yet. If some of you interested in the concept of world revolution were to join and contribute, I have a feeling things would pick up rather quickly. As it is, sadly, our revolution seems to consist of only two or three members actually dedicated to the board's stated cause; the rest seem far more dedicated to making garbage posts, or requesting Admin positions (you know who you are IMAGE(Join the revolution!_files/rolleyes.gif) ). If a few more dedicated members were to join, marked progress would soon be made, surely.
I'm surprised no one has pointed this out yet. This idea is stupid. Web space is a horrible thing to waste, but that's what this is. But hey, if you ever conquer the world, I suppose you could have me executed or something for saying that.

American society seems to have a myth that only the man should ask the woman out. Most guys don't seem to be aware of this 'rule', but girls seem to abide by it kinda faithfuly...
