I've been meaning to check out Fallthrough. Is there anything I need to do with JAWS to make sure everything's accessible, or will it run fine on its own?

Hi zack.

I haven't actually tried fallthrough myself. on my old desktop,
whenever I
attempted to run dos programs under xp, I got truly horrible lag
issues.

On my laptop and new desktop though, these don't seem to happen
at all.

I'll investigate fallthrough sinse that sense of infinite
possibilities
sounds deffinately fun.

Oh, and to anticipate questions, it can be downloaded from
http://www.classicgaming.com/ascii/

though they concentrate on rogue and other aski graphics games,
they also
seem to have some doss text adventure games as well, ----
including
fallthrough.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi,
Agreed. A friend of mine walked me through a brief session
of Spore a
while back. The really neat thing was that aforementioned
procedural
generation along with the uploading of user content. The two
combined to
create what were, I gather, very visually distinctive and unique
worlds.
The sense of possibilities and exploration there was tremendous.
It's this sense of infinite possibilities which I like about
Fallthru,
even though that isn't in the scifi mode and isn't multiplayer.
Best,
Zack.

that would be interesting to create your own universe,
creatures, etc,
from the user point of view.
I have a friend that has just got spore.
You are able to create life from components, and have a semi age
of
empires with it.
work through the ages till you get to the space age, and then
colonise
other worlds, etc.
He showed me part of it it is sertainly interesting.

Hi Dark,

This is something I've been interested in making. One thing I
love is
procedural generation. You can create an entire universe using
only that.
The trick of course is the game play and making it interesting.
Right now
it
has to stay an interest only while I work on Entombed. I'm
fascinated by
the
possibility though.

Hi.

a combination of reading starwars novels, playing Eamon and
Sryth, and
watching my brother play Final fantasy crysis core on the psp is
really
getting me in the mood for something scifi, but every online
game I've
looked at in a scifi setting seems to be either a, galactic
empire
building
pvp stratogy, or B, galactic ship sales pvp trading!

I must admit i'm getting a litle hacked off here. for me, one
of the
major
attractions of startrek, starwars, doctor who, babylon 5 etc is
exploration
of the various worlds, different land scapes and alien races.

of course as these are works of fiction I'm also interested in
the
characters, the politics etc, but from a purely scifi point of
view
(particularly in something like Starwars or Doctor who which has
a
very!
diverse landscape), there's quite a lot of stuff to explore.

I find it completely astonishing that every single scifi game
has only
focused on the statistical elements of player interaction and/or
combat,
---- and to be brutally honest, find it rather silly. Afterall,
if
people
want to play the stock markit, they can just pick up the
financial
times.

while I can see the attraction of pvp combat (though as I've
said
before
it's not something which interests me at all), I'm amazed that
nobody
has
developed an online scifi game which does not have this focus.

Admitedly I'm probably expecting a lot, afterall, the only
things I've
found in the pure fantasy genre along these lines are Sryth and
various
gamebooks, ---- and to a lesser extent any of the Logd or KoL
varients.

smugglers 4 I really like for the non linnier game structure,
missions
and
backstory, though I'm slightly disappointed that the actual
planets
themselves don't play a larger part in the game in terms of
being
unique
locations, and also that there weren't any new systems to go to
in S4
as
compared to S3.

eitherway though, S4 isn't an online game.

Basically, what I'm looking for is Sryth in space, ie, you have
your
spaceship, fly around and have adventures, ----- basically
sryth, in
space!

If anyone knows a game like that I'd be interested to here about
it, ----
possibly a mud? ---- though i admit I have heard many muds are
pvp stat
grinders.

Any input here would be appreciated.
