Favorite Old School Game
I was sorting threw some of my old game systems when I happened across Kirby. I booted it up and ended up playing it for about 8 straight hours. Are there any Old School games you guys still play, or at least think could stand their own against today's games?

RE: Classic Games

Fallout, the original. It's just too damn good. The only problem is compatibility issues with newer operating systems -- it still works in WinXP, but with a very annoying graphical glitch of going completely black quite frequently, until you update the image (move the move around, open the help screen, etc).

Worthy Trade?

Well im getting kinda sick of my computer. so heres my plan..

Right now i have an HP dv9000 laptop with core 2 duo processor, AMD athlon X2, 17 inch screen, lightscribe diskdrive and Vista Ultimate.

I was thinking about selling this to my friend and getting a new macbook. Now, is it worth it newgrounds? Id be downgrading from a 17inch screen to a 13 inch. which i really dont mind, i just wanna know if id be doing the right thing. right now my laptop is about 1.7GHz, and id be upgrading to 2.4 GHz. I prefer mac over PC too. What do you guys think?

Wait, what?

An "AMD Athlon X2" is a processor.

But then "Core 2 Duo" is Intel... or did you just mean "dual-core AMD Athlon X2?"

A worthy suggestion.

I would ask you, what do you primarily use the laptop for? If only for productivity, and no gaming, I would take a Macbook over anything, simply due to how I've heard others praise them. My only real beef with Apple computers is the lack of games and upgradeability, neither of which are very important for a laptop.

Nah, it wasn't really announced much this year. I find it kinda funny that they just used the side banners from last year. :P

I've been laying in bed for the past hour and a half, trying to fall asleep, but I just... can't. So here I am, refreshing the Flash forum.

Every time this happens I feel strangely depressed and a bit guilty. Damn society for telling me when I should be awake. A paper route has prevented me from being a night person for the last five years, but I'll be resigned as of this Sunday, August 17th... I have a feeling my last two weeks of summer will be spent primarily in the night. I wonder how much I could accomplish if I forced myself to work on Flash every hour awake past midnight or something...

Gah, I'm rambling.

Laptops

Blackfang, if you prefer Macs you should probably buy a mac.

I've just bought a new Sony Vaio NR21 for university. It has 2.1 ghz processor, 3 gb ram and a GeForce 8400M GT graphics card - all for £550! Methinks that it's quite a buy, but I know shit about computers. Someone cement my optimism, please.

Nice. I still need to get myself a laptop, my brother and sister have each got one, but my sis doesn't have a computer anyway, so that's fair enough, and my bro is starting uni.

kl thats pretty cheap probs got it on internet, not many people buy in store now, macs dont have the compatibility of windows so most people stay away but macs are ideal for the stuff we do!

I forsee the group totally disappearing by 2010.

It's kind of sad. Who wants to stage a revival?

I don't mean just for Clock Day, either. There's lots of talent here - we're perfectly equipped to make some alts and create some high-quality clock related Flash which gets easily through the portal on a normal day through its own merit.

Save data

Any coders know what software's good for editing save data in games? For debugging purposes, obviously. It's annoying having to go the long way around to view and change your data when you're testing something, especially when you've got inventories and stuff you need to edit to properly test.

I agree. Even just 3 years ago this place was much better. Much more old time regs are leaving because of the crazy amount of retards, and that unbalances the retard:reg population. It's a vicious circle. We'll keep spiralling down, though, since we have respectable admins, we won't ever reach a low level like 4chan. One thing is for sure though, I'm not leaving.

I'll be bored otherwise D=

Haha, it's nice to see a new generation becoming nostalgic.

The previous years always looked better for regs. It's no different now than it was back when we were upset about flashregs.net fading into obscurity, or before that when Luis still had the novelty of being a level one mod on a banning spree, or even before that when Rantzien was revealed to be a Swedish female cat, or back when the lovable bitch fights between Ninja-Chicken and Toast were in full swing and newer regs like me stepped in for comedy value and avoided taking sides, or before that when Denvish and to a lesser extent Liam and Inglor were the father figures for newer artists.

Come to that, Inglor and co probably complained about regs from their generation fading away too.

I'm sure Toast can appreciate this, even though in my mind he's just a bairn. It's a bit weird - back when we used to think of him as the cute little twelve year old expert on variables tutorials, a lot of us were younger than he is now :/

Anyway, long story short - the grass always looks a lot greener on whichever side of the hill you just came from.

RE: Nostalgia

I never really liked nostalgia in regards to this forum or the internet in general. I think its natural human nature to paint any internet nostalgia as this made-up golden age. In a few years this will be the new golden age... when regs were responsible, children ate their vegetables, things were fun, collabs were interesting, etc etc.

Its all a mirage. We had just as many complaints and ugly parts when denvish was around and that golden age as we do now.. maybe they were different kinds of ugly parts but they were definately there. Things are always changing even when you think they arent. :)
