Saturday, July 21, 2001 ~over 1000 hits?... how in de hell?...

holly hoppin hollies, over 1000 hits?!?... lets all join together in a collective "BOOYA!"... ::raises roof::... most of you probably stumbeled to this site by mistake, but hey, its all about the raw numbers... seriously, that just kicks ass... who was lucky 1000, anyways?...

well, anyways, sorry for the long break... the reason for it would be, well, i havent really acomplished crap... sure, i fixed a bunch of minor things, but nothing worth updating about... i just kinda assumed no one would care much if there wasnt a new demo to play, or new screenshots to behold...

it seems that i have been very fortunate lately, as several very generous people have helped me out a bit... first, theres Kaveh (i dunno if he wants me giving out his email, or else his name would be one of those links that i seem to place all over my news)... he was generous enough to give me free server space!... 'bout it, i say (not cool enough for "bout it"?... well, to make things easy, "bout it" = "extreamly cool")... he will only host the iBomber portion of my website, though, so that means that the webring (and anything else that may come to this site) stays on tripod... :: sighs ::

next, theres Vuen (again, the email dilemma... i should really ask people these things, shouldnt i?)... he designed sprites for 8 new characters... since you will be able to select your own sprites in my game, thats 8 new choices for all your sprite needs... 'bout it, huh?...

last, theres Vincent Wong and my girlfriend, Rachelle (EMAIL LINKS!... HA HA HA HA HA!... THE POWER!)... they both designed some new banners for the webring... damn good ones, too... almost all of the other banners were designed by another person, but im not sure i can even tell his name, let alone his email...

anyways, i want to add a bunch of new sections to this site, so i may actually start updating on a regular basis... if anyone really cares about that, then give me an email with some comments, encouragement, insults, death threats, whatever... i really like getting email, but its rare that i do (thanks for the email, rachelle, my love)... due to my lack of email, i may even put an (ugh!) EZ-board forum on this site (since i cant make a decent forum, with tripods shitty CGI support)... what does anyone think?...

"im off like a prom dress"...

Tuesday, July 10, 2001 ~ webring!... new demo!... booya!...

yep, thats right... i started up the bomberman webring!... but, crappy-ass tripod makes it a bit difficult, what with their crappy CGI and failure to be reliable when it comes to hosting graphics... so, if its a little crappy, im sorry... but, its going to have to do, since i dont have any money to buy decent hosting... if anyone wants to donate hosting, your more than welcome to do so...

oh yeah, i should give some thanks to Vincent Wong at the bomberman fantastic site... his site has brought me a lot of visitors, so i figure a link on my links page just wouldnt be enough to do his site justice... head over there, hes got some great bomberman stuff on his site...

while your at it, go over to the bomberman HQ... the site seems to be a bit dead (or dying, at any rate), as it hasnt been updated in about a year... but, even so, its a great site... and, to find practically ANY bomberman clone, go to the bomberman site... he only rated my game a 3 :( , but i still give the webmaster credit for having such a huge amount of clones... also, he contributed some great graphics for the bomberman webring...

also, i have the newest demo uploaded this time... theres a hell of a lot of new stuff in this, so go and download it immediately... also, if you have multiple joypads (and they all work correctly at the same time!), then please tell me if it works with those...

about the newest demo: theres probably some bugs... try not to abuse it too much... if you get any errors, make sure to tell me... also, you can now play up to 8 players at once... the only problem is, with a single keyboard, theres a limit to how many keys you can hold at once before they stop registering... this is simply because of a hardware limitation in newer(and thus cheaper) keyboards... if you dont believe me, just open up notepad and try for yourself...

also, the newest demo lets you choose your music and controls... soon, you will be able to choose your character sprites and the board, but not yet... also, the newest demo places graves werever you get killed, which i thoght was kinda neat... makes the game funny, to see five or six graves all in one because a group of people all got tooken out with a single bomb...

oh yeah, ive also been working on a board maker lately... its really simple, and im almost done... expect it soon, in the download section... yep, what used to be the "demo" section is now the download section...

speaking of changing section names, ive also removed the "graphics" section... download the game to see the graphics!... or, check out the screenshots... the original reason for the graphics section was just to show them off before i produced the demo, but since the demo has been out for some time now...

well, thats about it for now, i suppose... i shall be going... ::everyone sighs in relief:: peace...

oh yeah!... i forgot for all this time!... check out my AIM icon in the upper right... click on it to make it your AIM icon... if your curious, my AIM screen name is "NevermindPhreak"...


Tuesday, July 03, 2001 ~ hey! im not dead...

theres going be an update soon... ive been workin like made on the interface, and tweaking the main game... but, i havent been able to get a demo out of what ive done, so i havent made an update to my site. but, just so you know im not dead or anything ( ::crowd says a collective "damn!:: ), i figured id add something to here... no new screenshots, no new demo, just this little rant right here... im sorry, but hey, its not as though im gettin any money to do this (if you would like to give me money, for this or any reason, email me... josh always accepts free money)...

in the meantime, if you want somethng to hold you over, check out moo moo fever... i think its funny... maybe thats why its not as popular as it should be, as i probably have no taste... and, if your still bored, you could always write me an email...

oh, i should also say a few things... for one, the game name will probably become iBomber after all... its the only name ive gotten feedback about, but if anyone wants to tell me thats a stupid name or suggest a better one, go right ahead... also, i should be joining a webring soon, the VB game programmers webring... ill turn that into a link when the ringmaster gets his site completed...

speaking of webrings, if anyone would be interested in a bomberman webring, email me... the people over at bombermania are supposed to be getting one up, but that was over two months ago... id be willing to start a bomberman webring if enough people wanted to join, and transfer all the people over to the bombermania bomberman webring whenever that started up...

im also probably going to start adding stuff to my site soon, such as bomberman ROMs... any requests on what to add?... if so, once again, email me... youd be suprised how many times i say email me, and yet almost no one does... well, i finally got a few emails, but thats about it... i want MORE, damnit!... heh... email me!...
