Hi all,


Just to announce the new game section of the forums are open! Here you can post game-specific issues, questions, WIP, etc. I have a few things I am working up to posting myself with XNA, based on the tests so far, some simple "how to" items on getting things from tS into XNA.


We'll see you here!


Thanks!

Tom

Sweet! Add to that the fact that I've finally joined the rest of the world and got high-speed internet (after years of dial-up) today! :)

I misread that as "buy him a bear" for a moment. I think a beer is a better choice.


Thanks!

Oh, I don't know, a beer-drinking, popcorn-eating, tophat-wearing bear might be a fun mascot.

Why is this topic called "Shiny", when it has nothing to do with anything shiney? Was it used to get our attention? ooooh... I like shiney:D

A prize to nowherebrain for spotting the reference - it is indeed from serenity/firefly. "Shiny" there was used as an expression for when everything was good and going well, hence the title of the thread :)


HTH!

Oh, you're referring to the new forum! I thought you were talking about the creators of Earthworm Jim!

I remember Earthworm Jim very well, and Shiny Entertainment :) While only Serenity / Firefly was the intended reference, no harm in this unintended reference too. Did you know that Earthworm Jim is supposed to be seeing something of a resurrection? I loved the humor in that (and in the cartoons for it too).


Thanks!
