No, I think I just got GC1. But there was also this patch, and after I installed it my computer quit smoking.

It wasn't a nicotine patch, was it?

Perhaps it was a...skribbane patch???

The randomness of RWG has led me to believe anyone who fequents these forums should watch Salad Fingers and laugh in their dark abyss of a computer/bed room. Do a search for it on google, or if you don't mind gratuitous naughty ads, then it's also hosted on newgrounds.com.

Who needs AI? The important thing about GC is building your own empire before 10 turns are up!

Oh, and the planet "build screens" have a very catchy song. I wish I could download it from NapZaaWire.

The music in Galactic Core, on the whole, sounds like it was done by a tottering and aging Christopher Franke after a particularly damaging post-Babylon 5 marijuana binge.

...By the way, Student of Trinity, I really enjoyed that patch joke! :)

Mary Jane? Not if SW is distributing the game his tunes are in, I'm sure...

Just for the record, let me clarify this comment. I enjoy the music in GC. But, like the music for Babylon 5, in certain large quantities it can start to make you see things and give you a headache and make you want to scream and scream and scream and never stop. Thus showing the incredible ability of the composer to transfer his near-senile and chemically-beclouded mental state to his listeners.

This our flagship thread must never languish.

To which end:
I never finished the last GC demo scenari

Ah, hell, I just can't pretend I care. But the thread must go on, regardless.

Through long searching, we're one step closer to solving the riddle of RW!

I found an old e-mail address, mail@tardanian.com, reportedly of RW! Too bad www.tardanian.com seems to be inexistent...

Now here's a question to ponder:

In Galactic Core, the Tardanians are, without a doubt, the weakest and silliest aliens. Their most advanced ship a a radar dish powered by a hamster wheel. The only good point about it is that its cheap, so you feel like you got a great bargain while the opposing Death-Star-Planet-Killer ships slap them into a footnote of the Necronomicon lite.

Why would he choose the Tardanians?

Perhaps there are unknown benefits to being a footnote?

www.Tardanian.com

...Courtesy of the magical Internet Wayback Machine.

In my mind, this perfectly encapsulates the essence of the Tardanian bureaucracy. They were so busy filling out forms authorizing the illegal production of fake spaceships that they couldn't even be bothered to get their government's website up and running!

The Wayback Machine only had entires up until 2004. So chances are if the domain name is kablooee, so is the email address. You'd just get a bounce-back error.

But no, I'm not going to try it! Somebody else do it!

...Gruhh. I've made a liar out of myself. I just bunged off a wee email. We'll see what happens.

I wonder if even Jeff has a way of communicating with him? Maybe he can send messages with money transfers to banks? Sheesh, I don't know...

Someone emailed Jeff to ask this very question not too long ago, and posted the result. Jeff's response was along the lines of "well, I haven't had any contact with him in ages, but he still cashes his cheques so he probably isn't dead".

When I called SW to order Galactic Core, I asked them if they'd heard that Richard White had died. I think it was Linda who took the call, because she asked "really? I didn't know!"

She then called out to Jeff whether or not he knew if Richard White had died, and I could hear him respond in the background - he said "As far as I know, he's still alive, but I've heard he died too." or something like that.

I felt (and still feel) kind of bad turning my game order into a crank call-esque mockery, but I suppose SW doesn't mind since I spent my money there. (As Apu might say "Thank you! Come again!")

Is that just me rationalizing my poor behavior?

This just all goes to show that even those at Spiderweb wouldn't really be that surprised to hear of RW's death.

Well, there is a slight difference between having had recent contact with someone and knowing how to contact them. I haven't had contact with lots of people in recent months, but I do know of ways of contacting them.

It was about three or four weeks ago.

Argh - I feel really badly about doing that. I think I'll email Jeff and let him know that I have idea if Richard White died.

This, our mother thread, must never perish.

I would also add that I did not encounter Richard White on Kaua'i, which of course makes sense, as he's really in all our hearts. Literally.

I think it would be more accurate to say that there's a little of Richard White's heart in all of us. That is, those of us who knows if he's alive or not.
