I loved the game Magebane 2, but whatever happened to magebane 1?
just a thought.

It was a great game, my first game ever. Made in 1999, with Visual Basic 3. The reason I'm not distributing it anymore is that it was in Finnish only, and I'm currently concentrating on English games only. Some Finnish sites may still have it, but it's not here anymore.

Crazy finlanders
I tell ya what though, Visual basic was one of the best languages i ever learnt.

I've been thinking of translating it to english, then I could distribute it with good conscience.

Visual Basic is very good, altough you really can't do good 3d-games with it... too bad :sad

The only problem with it is that it's quite slow, otherwise it has pretty much everything you'll need in game programming.

still about magebane 1: Ville, I could translate it to english? how about that? I have done much with Visual Basic and I have a good skill in english, a 10 in school (altough I guess it's not so rare) but still think about it, I could do the work for you, if you like

The problem is that I don't know where the code is anymore. Much of the game texts are in the code, so I need to find it to translate it.

I'd love to have you translate it if I find the code, but there's still one more problem. I originally shamelessly used copied samples in the game sounds, so it would also need new sound effects. It wouldn't be that much of a problem if I had enough time, I'll have to look into it when I finish Notrium.

Now he's gonna say when he finishes that fantasy-soldat type game

Idiota, you just dug up a 1.5 year old topic. CONGRATS!

hey, I'm good at that sorta stuff. I keep a very keen eye of what's going on and what has been going in on on this forum. Trust me, if I would have wanted it, I would be a master in digging up old junk...

Still haven't found the code. It's made with Visual Basic 3, and it's supposed to run on a windows 3.1. I'm not sure if it would work.

Did it go missing before your harddisk crash?
#

Not in the latest one, it got missing in an earlier hard disk crash. Some people never learn!

But we're not all out of luck, I've seen a copy of the code floating around on a very old backup. I still haven't dared to see if it works.

hmm... this scene sounds familiar to me... ah, yes, right at home, when I haven't finished my homework: "but sir, I'm sure I've seen my homework somewhere!"
Reply: "where was that then?"
Me: "on my mate's table sir..."

happens to me all the time

You could hire 300,000 translators to get the job done in 2 seconds and charge us all $495 dollars each to get it. Or not. I don't care what language it's in, I'd still play it.
