Seemed like he might have some kind of disorder. I also often wondered if he was a 2nd account of someone else here.I do hope he's okay, though.

 

Not that I am a specialist on the subject, but it seemed almost obvious to me that he does have some kind of disorder. He was indeed very annoying. But I thought it was a real shame when some smart people here made laugh of him. I also hope he's ok.

Yes indeed, I was trying to be kind re the disorder but yes he clearly did have issues but like most people I hope he's in a better way of life now, there's no need to belittle a person if you realise its not just him trying to annoy people but an 'issue' he has, but at the time it just seems like he was after to wind people up.

 

As we all have said, we hope he's ok and life is better for him..

It has been a very long time since I was involved in the scene.. I can remember Kilroy.. And I was part of a group called "NASA" It was a small group, but released a few games/apps. I use to run an Atari BBS (MASH - Missouri Atari Software Hackers", running (Basic XE), dont even remember the name of the software. It was one of the few systems that used ANS-II cursor movements, to create games online.

 

I would love to find some more information about the old Atari Scene.. maybe even find some old friends..

 

Jeff

Did you do any more cracks/hacks other then firebirds 'extirpator' (a so-so shooter) that is the only one of yours that i've seen

 

A lot of intros were edited and changed or deleted these days by a lot of folks- and I am quite sure that my name has been erased quite a number of times. The reason that Extirpator still has my name in it, is that it is not text but it is a graphic 8 pic. Diffucult to edit when in sector mode. Dump the game on a disk and view the data in graphics 8 and you will see.

 

So, what was your contribution ?

Carmels job was to randomly create non facts :)

 

Seriously. I find myself miss remembering stuff and have to give it a second thought or someone kindly corrects it but Carmel put the whole foot in the mouth many times. I guess he wanted to be more part of the scene than he actually was which is a bit silly as although it was fun at the time being part of the scene wasn't that interesting in truth...

Yeah, shame as he was a character and we all need characters, he was quite knowledgable but often quoted the facts for the wrong item :)

 

I owe him thanks for pointing me toward Altirra on its very first release (yeah blame him Avery :)

 

I just hope that he's well where ever he is and maybe he will pop in just to have a look....
