Hi,

When you read that title, I hope it didn't get misconstrued, I understand how insane I am and that my brain could use some more development, but that is not at all what was intended in that subject line.

I started to make more progress on The Dark Avilan recently, I will also continue making more Let's Plays in about 2 - 3 weeks time, but at the moment TDA is priority 1. There isn't much really that brought about this sudden decision to pump out some progress other than the fact I feel wierd seeing it sit in limbo forever when it's more or less 75% complete. I should probably complete, even if there aren't many people around who actually download and play dmods anymore. Well, not as many as there used to be.

It already has about 8 hours of game play, and that's with me playing through, getting every single optional side quest and secret there is (some secrets lead to a 20 minute task or quest in themselves, so if you skip everything optional it isn't quite that long). Either way, even if you don't see me post very often, know tat I am still developing this, and expect Let's Plays in 2 - 3 weeks, both on DinkSmallwoodPT, and for those who follow it, my main gaming channel (Random431).

Also, I do have a full time job, so this doesn't mean it will be done in a week or two - I'm aiming for 1 and half - 2 months until I can call for beta testers on the full game.

But really, I'm looking forward to "The Dark Avalon" a lot! The first demo was looking really excellent and I can only imagine it getting better from there. Looking forward to the Let's Play as well. I don't normally watch those, but that's one I don't want to miss.

Making Topics off-track faster then you can say it 
If you put in the right characters in the right formation in ASCII, you can make a pre-set picture like that appear. Skurn has been trying that before, but we're not suppose to let him know the correct orders to make pictures. If you message Redink or Tal, they might be willing to take another pre-set picture and tell you the code. Everyone gets 1 chance by the way, usually Redink will ask you when he gets on, but most people are saving the chance or are exceptions due to certain reasons.

Whatever happened to "aiming for 1 and half - 2 months until I can call for beta testers on the full game."?

If I may suggest, perhaps you can break your dmod into parts and that way get part 1 out to an adoring fanbase all that much sooner?

Please! We need more dmods.

Ay, I did say that. I did do quite a lot of work on it. However, I moved interstate, which involved an epic road trip of over 5500km. I've been driving for some time. Recently arrived.
I currently do not have a PC, but have ordered the parts and will be assembling my new gaming/video editing machine when they arrive.

More updates after that.

"5500km? That's like, from one side of Australia to the other. Wow."
Yep. Went across country. From Bunbury (a city 2.5 hours south of Perth), to south Western Sydney. Took a detour through Victoria, rather than the direct route, so I could drive the Great Ocean Road.

"Completely unrelated question, but do you still practice the dark arts"
Of course I do!

"Impressive. I hope you didn't have to do it solo. I did a 3500km drive solo and that was not an experience I'd like to repeat"
And nah, I didn't do it on my own, had someone else following me the whole way. The road across the Nullarbor is extremely isolated, nothing out there but dirt, grass and bush for a couple thousand km. One roadhouse every 200-300km to fill up and no mechanical assistance. Had to help one family get going again cause they lost a tyre going 120km/h, luckily no one got hurt. Also had to jump start two other people lol.
It's crazy that people do these trips solo and so unprepared.

I spent $5000+ between my two cars to make sure everything was as risk free as possible, and then fuel costs to get both cars across exceeded $2000. Some of the fuel prices out there in the middle of nowhere reach up to $2.10 per litre.
Not a cheap trip lol.

Just a little insight for anyone ever planning to travel across Australia

No, I'm building it myself.

It's not super high end, as I'm not one of these 'PC building enthusiasts' that compete with others. It's what I need to get the job done for my planned projects, at the budget I set.

I might post full specs later, but to summarise it, Intel i7-6800k processor, x99 deluxe-II motherboard, 32gb of ram, nVidia GeFoce GTX 1080 video card.

"sure sounds like it is."

Yeh, well, I mean, compared to some builds I've seen by people that go overboard, it's not. It does however absolutely crap all over my previous PC, which was a pre-built piece of crap. That's the reason I lost motivation to do let's plays on both my channels, because it took hours to render 1 let's play part. I'm building this one with these specs to overcome that problem. With much faster rendering, it won't be as tedious of a process, which means more let's plays and tutorials. Also, my previous PC used to actually crash sometimes because it could not handle the complex and lengthy Sony Vegas project files with multiple video tracks, required for some of my videos. Hence the GTX 1080 - those struggles will now be a thing of the past.

Plus I'll be all set for streaming as well!
