Re: Changes. Changes never change.

I've been thinking of starting a Discord server and seeing if I can get as many people as I can from the old OG crew to join. It's just a matter of overcoming my own inertia.

Changes. Changes never change.

Hello.

If you're reading this, then we have safely arrived to a yet another new era of Curly's World. You should not notice anything changing.

If you do, please let me know.

Afair CWF at its peak (which was also the beginning of its demise) covered 350 to 450 games (correct me)

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Merry Christmas to everyone who still occasionally ends up on this forum. I spent a week recently in Washington DC and I was surprised how many model trains there were in public. The National Christmas Tree was surrounded by them and at US Botanical Gardens they had built tracks around the plants . ...

Re: LampLight City is out

I think Gilbert released a new game that is not Blackwell but very close to it.

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Forums are still a very used medium as long as it has a topic to be centered around (a game, a hobby and such). Yeah, but I think they are now very much consolidated. You talk about games, you go to Neogaf/resetera, you talk about board games you got BGG... the age of small boards is pretty much go...

Re: What games are you playing currently

Half-Life turns 20 years this year. Your screenshot also reminds me that I never played the Laura Bow games...

I think Igor refers to the Igor: Project Uikokahonia? I never played the full game, or... maybe I did, I can't remember.

The BBS had a good run, the phpBB boards had a good run, but now that the Internet blew large the people who posted on forums have moevd to closed communities while everyone else went to more public social media sites.

Re: Cheating in games

Actually, it was MI2 and I thought I needed a stick. I can't remember if on second try I realized I didn't actually need a stick.

Re: Cheating in games

That is patience. I remember getting stuck on the first Monkey Island, if I remember correctly I wasn't able to find a stick or something, and it took years before I continued the game.

Re: What is the purpose of a compiler?

What's the link between formal logic and chaotic, irrational human behaviour, Zyx? Do we know more now? The never-ending fight against entropy and chaos.
