What's good?

Postby Wulfunruh » Mon Jan 16 2017 6:21pm

I've been following this site since before it had the huge remodel. If I can recall, some of the references were still old notepad-esque help documents. Figured I'd finally register and take part. Beaten SF1 & SF2 a million times, and have played all (minus SFIII -- which I currently am working on) of the tactical style games in the series. Even tried Neo-ope and Soul (which blew). Soon... What's up?

Welcome here. Things aren't as active as they once were but there's a lot of great stuff here buried in the forums. You might want to try Legacies of Veridocia for a new take on the classics and there are plenty of threads pondering what RPGs are similar enough to Shining to satisfy that itch.

Welcome! The forum also has a forum RPG, if you click on the sword icon above the banner. There may be some requirements to the game though, such as 50 posts and an account a few months old. I can't remember what all applies though.

Thanks for the shout out on Legacies of Veridocia, Kai! By the way, do you want to be added to the access group?

Appreciate the quick welcome. I think the forum industry itself has a tendency towards sparking, taking off, and dying down. All good, can't kill the SF itch. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll start on it when I get off work.

What does this access group entail? I'm interested.

To put it simply, we're developing a game and granting access allows you into the hidden sub-forum where you can watch development or (hopefully!) participate. We've only done a one battle demo though so it won't take you long ;)

Well absolutely then... I'm new to anything related hacking however, I'm willing to learn and assist.

You can learn more here. We're doing everything from scratch, so no actual hacking involved. Just lots of art and programming at this point :) If you need more details on what we need help on, feel free to ask me or post around.

I don't know that I'd have a lot to offer. I suck at pixel art and haven't programmed in years. :(
