woooow, all digital?

I don't know much about mixing but I played around with a synth for awhile and it's not easy coming up with the shape of the sound. 

I'm looking at your other stuff too, pretty sweet. This would be perfect dungeon ambience for my Shadowrun games. Oooh. I'll commission you for musics if I ever start my cyberpunky android mmo. Gotta keep in mind that everyone's android phone speakers will make everything sound tinny, but this would run the perfect vibe. 

Do you do creative commons stuff too?

Time to log in and bump this topic again.
Had no idea Belross was the same age as me, damn.

I'm living in the Australian Capital of Canberra.
From my house I can walk 5 minutes and I'm in bushland.
Drive 10 minutes I'm in mountains.
Drive 15 to be in the CBD
Canberra is a strange place.

I work in software packaging and SOE creation for a contracting company.
Alas, I hate computers though. After years working in IT support, I would love to be a park ranger, and never touch a computer (for work) ever again.
I guess it's more the people using computers. Fuck those guys.

I got bitten by that fucking game making bug again.
The itch in the back of the mind you just can't scratch.
Installed game maker again.

Hey so any of the other Australian gwers still around?
I know I have serenity on Facebook.
I'm struggling to remember the others.
Owlstorm?
Serenity's brother... Tiger something?

Been with GW for 12 years which is half of my life! 25 now. Initially joined GW for game development stuff but got involved with the Soldat sub community here so only soldat players would probably really know who I am. Currently going to college to become a network admin, figured I'd get sick of playing video games if I were to ever go into that field.

i feel nostalgic for internet forums when i come back and visit here, it's cool to see faces i don't see on twitter. and i like seeing it still here. i think i might be moving to japan this year, spent the past few part-time making web sludge for money and part making my own stupid videogame projects for not-money. i have been finally getting treatment for my social anxiety so that's a thing too, and i lost like 10kg over the past year or so, probably doing whatever dietcoke said to do and i ignored him at the time.

Man I miss all you guys. I lurk here once a month and just bellow at how many good times we had, even if we where all asshats.
This community helped sculpt me into part of who i am today, it was also pretty cool digs to have been part of this site in its high point. From moderating arts to being 'the guy' (with Rami and I think Drule) who brought you all the premium colors beside gold ( MINT BABY!) , to just being a member of this iconic community. 

You can find me on most all social medias these days as Madolah (FB, Twitter, all of it, add me up) Became a DJ for last 7-8 years and made quite a success with it where im from and financially but i gave it up because i became engulfed in the party lifestyle.  Left a 5year relationship and shortly after left DJing and moved provinces (states of Canada) and recently finalized getting diploma for Graphic Design and Interactive Advertisement so I'm no longer unlicensed freelancing but actually making some client contracts for ad design now. 



How've you all been?

What the fuck is this place that keeps drawing us back?

Edit: also why is my actual birthdate even here howcouldibethisdumb. My. God. Looking at these posts. I was an asshole!

Hey does mkk still post? How about velfarre. What happened to Mr.D? Doktormartini?

I don't even remember what any of you ever said. I remember hating Velfarre's guts. And Mr D being a badass. And mkk being generally our Lord and Savior and mostly our mascot. And doc being doc.

Does anyone remember Steel?
 
Super late here but I only seem to peek in once every few months if that anymore.  But I thought Steel Paladin passed away some years ago due to cancer... or am I remembering this wrong?

I'm surprised Soldat isn't some big game on Steam these days or something. Soldat was an amazing game.

Wow … I'm amazed I could remember my password. So much has happened since I last thought about this place.
Life hasn't been too kind; going through some weird kind of PTSD thing from crazy ex (more crazy than most, I guess). Apparently mental health issues mean I can't work or claim unemployment benefits, but I also can't claim disability because I would be capable of working on a good day. The official advice from the departments in question is to lie on the forms for the other one.
 
Hi again, all these people whose names I recognise from so many years ago. My name's Angel, I'm 34, and now I'm an author. Got a couple of self published books out, and that's enough for me to get self-employment support from the government; but I really, really wish I could get more people to actually read them. I'm also a part-time spambot, because plugging links on forums (novel / short stories / mind control erotica) is the only kind of advertising I can afford.
 
Umm… yeah, that's my life. Still have crazy ideas for game making, but have pretty much accepted that I don't have the time to teach myself to art. Maybe I'll make something at some point soon.
Congrats to everyone who's got through the last decade without having any bits cut off and has found a place in the Real World ^_^

It's very unfortunate that the ball never really got rolling for Soldat in this wacky modern era of gaming. The dev(s) have been "making progress" toward a Steam-ready build for ages. Also RIP #gwsoldat

This is basically how it is with me. Except for the "forget about" part. Like I regularly remember shit and am all "OH YEAH REMEMBER WHEN". Unfortunately, a certain amount of it is bad memories of doing disgusting shit to people.
 
This is a longshot, but if like anyone knew of RPGMinerva and has details, I'd like to get in touch. This is from the 2000-2003 era, so more than likely no one will, but JUST IN CASE.
Hey hey hey

I do that too, with everything. I remember calling a kid a name in 2nd grade because I thought he was being mean to me but he wasn't, and I still feel bad about it. I wonder why that stuff pops up.
