Blitz 3d Users?
« on: September 08, 2017, 03:55:47 PM »
I managed to join Yue's temporary forum awhile back before the Bltiz3d purge. But its down now, with my search for Blitz related material and users leading me finally to here. Thankfully several users were able to get a complete backup of the Blitz forums and code archives, I was working on my own backup but another already beat me to it. I've worked on many game prototypes over the years and have always found the Blitz community to be extremely friendly and helpful. So who else is still around? :)

I tried contacting Mark directly to pay for server expenses but he never responded. I understand his reasoning behind closing the community but the shutdown really felt like I was losing a long time friend.

Self confessed more of a 'lurker' these days- I like to contribute now and then though ;)

That money "argument" was just an excuse if you ask me.

Mark - 'the Blitz slaughter'.. ;D

Blitz Baby, Yeah!


Still a couple of people seem to have just, quote: 'vanished', or perhaps lost, their.. 'mojo' ?


Perhaps Dr. Evil (Mark) took it from them to enhance his own monkey-mojo..   XD
Some names that come to mind:
Flanker
RustiKristi
RemiD
bobysait
Angros

Or perhaps I just didn't see them..

Perhaps they took the plunge and moved over to Monkey2(haven't checked/been there for a while) or ditched the BRL scene altogether after Mark pulled the plug.

I totally agree with you MagosDomina
I'll always be thankful with that incredible and extinguished community. Blitz3D is amazing for fast and simple coding for amateurs like me, and I've practically learned to code 3d tools just following the posts and sources of those forums. Is a great lost and waste of useful information

Maybe some of those people have never heard about this site (just like I only found it via a random "blitz" search on google)

As far as I'm concerned, I've left the blitz scene a long time ago. I managed to finish a 3D engine for blitzmax, but the forum is down now, so ... I won't spend more time on it and support so, it's archived on my hard drive. Some day, I'll probably publish it on github ... some day... (I didn't think about it because there was no comunity any more)
Blitz3d/blitzmax was only a fun tool for me, and I've never really been interested by the monkey stuff.
In fine, I went back to the bones of the web : html5/javascript/php/etc... (not really exiting but ... we have to live and pay the bills ^^)

By the way, I'm actually on the very end of a portage of the engine for webgl (100% javascript - always with a blitz3d/blitzmax-like syntax)
But this time, it will be an open-source project.
I don't give any date, I don't give any promises I won't be able to fit due to recent major changes in my life (I move from where I live to 850 km in the end of october - I managed to to loose 25 Kg in 3 monthes - I changed my job ... and there's tons of tasks that take more time than 24/7 ... Maybe I'll experience phantom pregnancy in few monthes :D)


ps : Rick Nasher, Steve Elliott, glad to see you again

Welcome bobysait.  People seem to stumble upon this site from the old community.  A slow regeneration of that old community - all-be-it in a multi language site.

Good luck with your future project.

Hey-hey, bobysait is on board too of our little lifeboat overhere. Or actually it turned into a nice fancy cruiseship by now.
So I should say Loveboat. ;-) 


Great to hear from you man, you'll get a free drink at the bar.  8)
