Duck. DUCKDUCKDUCK. Didn't want to believe this at first. I denied it and hoped it was a terrible joke. Then I googled it and found the news reports about his death. Duck. Tim, I'm never going to forget you.

redink1 found this.

Let me just be really open and honest here. Tim seemed like a pretty alright person. He contributed possibly the largest in scale project to the Dink Network to date. I could even sympathize with the problems he faced.

I see stories similar to the one I posted about Tim and there's absolutely no reason to take them lightly. There isn't a single instance I feel a joke about that matter is appropriate. I draw the line at certain points and this is one of them.

I just... I don't even know what to say, but all things considered, I hope Tim didn't really do this to himself. Either way, Tim's passing is incredibly upsetting, but the idea that he could have committed suicide makes the air feel like poison. The idea is scary. People that joke about it are scum lower than dirt. People that don't take it seriously need to open the hell up and try to understand people.

I didn't know Tim or even really get to know him at all outside of the thread where he discussed how he took the contest loss, but even so, the news is truly upsetting.

I can understand, really. But this is not the solution. It never is.

"Tim was a great contributor at the Dink Network where he played through every mod made for Dink Smallwood and wrote lengthy articles for each one. We at the Dink Network will remember him and thank him for his contributions." is what I was writing at first for the guestbook.

I'd think acknowledging Tim's contributions and thanking him for them would add more.

Not sure what the character limit is for the flowers, though.

I like your words, but I fear his family is going to think 'The Dink Network' is something weird.

Oh wow. Is this for real? I can't believe it. I was wondering why he suddenly vanished. I really am in shock. Can't find any words. Death doesn't usually strike me very hard but this... I feel like this is a bad dream. And he was doing so well recently too, at least judging by his activity here. He looked to be on his way back to a more positive time in life, with getting married and all. The whole community really lost a great friend. Almost feels like the loss of a family member with how close this community is.

All I can say is thank you, Tim, for coming back and making your wonderful contributions to this website within the last two years. We love ya and will always remember that you released some of the most memorable D-Mods, whether in bad or good, that many people enjoyed, and did the impossible by playing through all the D-Mods and writing about them; a project many people dreamed about for years. We'll never forget.

As said, usually don't get struck by death so hard, especially with Internet people, but this is very saddening. I actually have tears in my eyes writing this. At least Tim got to finish his big project before this. Hate to say it, but I think this might have been a suicide, knowing his depression. And that it came just after he finished his COTPATD project. May he rest in peace. If there was some sort of a posthumous hall of fame for Dinkers, Tim would certainly deserve to be there.

Two things just struck me really hard. First being that if Robj is gonna continue uploading the LP of Malachi the Jerk, it's gonna be really sad to hear Tim in it. Especially since he was so eager to see the rest of that LP. Secondly, I made an awful decision not doing that Dinkerview some people asked me to do, about him. I decided to "save it for later", but now I realize I can't do it anymore. Makes me feel crap for taking life as a given.

Those flowers look good, Redink.

Man, this is really hitting super hard. Just the fact that he was such an active member and enthusiastic Dinker who inspired many to keep hanging on this site and making D-Mods, making them know there'd at least be one person who would appreciate them to their fullest, and now he is no more. To see him come back after all that time, to such a positive position on this site, with such great goals, plans and ideas. Then becoming one of the most important, active people on this site who posted nearly every day and just overall being such a nice person, and now to know he's gone and we'll never see him post here again, so suddenly. Just breaks my heart. The possibility of suicide just makes it even sadder. Sorry if I'm seeming repetitive and over-the-top but this has really shaken me up quite badly, to the point I find it hard to believe even myself. Why does it always have to be people like Tim who really don't deserve anything but good in life?

Tim... You are more than just a guy who made great content on the internet, you are one of the select people I feel comfortable calling my friend. Your hard and tireless work has been an inspiration to me, and I very deeply relate to the struggle you've had trying to find happiness. I'm sorry that it ended this way, but I'm glad you got to make something very special from beginning to end. It's sad to think about everything you could have done in the future if things had turned out different, but maybe it's best to celebrate what you accomplished in the time you were here rather than dwell on what-ifs.

I will never forget you buddy; thank you for the good memories, and I wish only the best to your wife and family in the future.

Goodbye, Tim...

I thought this was an awful joke at first. I'm very sorry to hear about this and I am also quite shaken up. Tim was a superb DMod maker and writer with his Dink Forever series being an important part of Dink history, and his more recent offerings have been truly wonderful to read/play. I don't know what may have been going on in his personal life, but it's a real shame it had to end like this.

For everyone else here, if you're affected by this sort of thing, do make sure that you talk to someone such as on one of these hotlines.

You can search for posts by CocoMonkey. It looks like he didn't post here for about a week before his death, at least publicly. I was wondering where he'd gone, but I didn't think it was anything out of the ordinary. I thought I saw him lurking around a few times, at least.

I wish Tim's family and friends the utmost sympathy and condolences. Tim was friendly, funny, witty, and an overall wonderful guy. It is a damn tragedy to lose him, and I can barely stand to think of how this affects his family and friends in the real world.

I keep alternating between incredible sadness and numbness, and have been trying to answer the unanswerable why. Could I have done anything? Could anyone have done anything? Should I have done something different? I still have a few unwritten posts in my head about things I wanted to tell Tim, personal things about depression and self-criticism that I learned through experience, would that have helped? I don't think so, but I can't quite stop thinking about 'what-if' scenarios.

His last post was about not having any future COTPATD plans. That was also the same day he uploaded Dink Smallwood Achievement Unlocked Edition 1.04a. I could go on, and post timelines and maps and document other 'evidence' and 'theories' like some sort of super-lame internet detective, but I feel like trying to answer why like that is the wrong way to achieve catharsis. I don't know what the right way is, though, if there is one.

I don't wanna tarnish Tim's memory by playing some Internet detective either, but I do have to say I think some things point to that he might've been planning this for some time now. Perhaps even so long it was one of the reasons he returned here in the first place. These past couple years, he seemed very determined to "redeem" himself, both here and in real life. And it looks like the moment he felt like he had done that, this happened. Or, I could be totally wrong about that and it might've just been one too many bad day for him.

Either way, I still don't fully realize he's now gone. Keep thinking he'll be back here lurking and posting soon. His absence here will take a long time to get used to.

As a long time lurker, Dink fan, and fan of Tim's work this hit me unspeakably hard. I remember when Tim started his project to play all those dmods. It was always interesting to visit the forum and read his thoughts. I don't know if anyone else but Tim could have finished that project. He had such a determination. He wanted to contribute something special and something that we could enjoy.

Malachi the Jerk is one of my favorite dmods. Maybe in my top three. Tim clearly wanted to prove to us that he could do something as good as anything. I think that most of all he wanted to prove that to himself.

I wish that I had said something to Tim. That I really enjoyed to read his thoughts and play his dmods. That he was one of the most awesome guys in the whole Internet. I'm really sad he's gone

This is.. I can't believe it. I'm still trying to comprehend it. I just feel as if it's just something that will go away and Tim will be back, but I know that's not going to happen... it's still sinking in for me.

Tim was such a awesome, caring, and fun person. I spoke to him many times on skype, outside of the times we spoke during the LP's we made, which I now wish I had of uploaded more regularly (it seemed to get to him that I didn't have time to keep them coming ).
I don't know if I want to finish uploading them now.. listening to them and editing them together will just make me sad the whole time I'm putting them together.. but then again in another way I do, in order to finish what we started. :/

You will be missed Tim. RIP.

Sad news indeed. At age of 29? So young. He made this community a better place.I didn't really know him, but he seemed a very kind person.

I betatested DS: Achievement Unlocked Edition v.1.04 and sent him a somewhat long list bugs and suggestions - it resulted in some of the "loads and loads of updates". It was the first time I ever betatested anything, and I was surprised how long it took. This makes me think how much time it took for Tim to test and fix everything - it surely took much longer. Thinking about the possibility of suicide, Tim might have lived a more depressed life than we thought. But taking yEoldtoast's advice, I will not speculate any more. I regret I didn't thank him for the COTPATD project, it was fun to read, and it made me follow this community.

RIP Tim. I wish the best for Tim's wife, family and friends.

Wow, when I first read this, I did a mental check to see if it was April 1st. I didn't know Tim very well personally, but the "Tim plays all the dmods project" was really fun to watch unfold. His reviews were well-written, entertaining, and did a very good job of making the reader commiserate with the writer's journey through the peaks and valleys of the Dinkiverse. I will definitely have to get around to playing Malachi the Jerk.

Tim was the reason I stuck around here for such a long time after I had given up on my D-mod. His COTPATD project was something I looked forward to seeing a new post on every day for over a year. He was a talented writer, and such a great guy. I didn't know him all that well but I always felt a connection to him and I considered him a friend. I thought that he and I were similar people in many ways, but maybe he had more demons than he let on. He was a very important part of our community and it'll be sad to never get to talk to him on the forums again.

Tim often said he didn't feel like he was good enough. I told him several times (as did others) that he shouldn't be so hard on himself, that he definitely was good enough. But unfortunately it seems that he didn't lose that feeling.

(Tag Line) How long is this line. 
Even though a month and a half has passed I still feel like I should at least give my two cents on this travesty.

Tim did give the DinkNetwork along with leprechaun I think the best D-mod in my opinion in recent years,I mean Gnarlager or what ever her name was that part of the game regardless of who kills who is one of the most emotional dialogue I've experienced in a D-mod,.
And his Crazy old Tim play all the D-mods which he did finish was interesting to follow through it took dedication to go threw all those D-mods and make entire reviews of them along with some screenshots,Few people have the dedication for that.

About his death I actually don't blame if he did commit suicide because depression is not something that's easy to overcome or metal illness in general,Its never something that should be taken lightly Being it has happen to many people,A person called Amanda Todd committed suicide because of bullying due leaked naked photos of her.

I do feel sorry for his wife and his family having to go through all this horror of losing a loved one and for that they have my sympathy.

May you rest in peace Timothy Maurer.

I am not sure if this will be a successful post since I do not have a user name or password, but this is Tim's mother. I want to thank you all for the flowers and for your kind words. It is still heartbreaking for our entire family and we miss him terribly.

Tim had suffered for many years from severe anxiety and depression, along with a neurological disorder called Charcot-Marie-Tooth, or CMT. This condition made it difficult for him to stand or walk for long periods of time, and was progressing to his upper extremities. The fact that he was extremely intelligent but unable to have a career was very wearing on him. I tell you this to help you understand, as Tim was involved with this site since he was a boy.

Tim was witty, kind and extremely intelligent. He loved to sing and had a great voice. He was a great cook. He loved his wife very much and his family. We all were very involved with his daily life. Always. His illness just overwhelmed him at a moment when we weren't watching.

Please know that he loved this site and his friends on here. Thank you for remembering our Tim.

Love to you and the rest of his family, the comments on here have slowed but know that I for one barely miss a day without thinking of Tim. He touched us here with his talent and personality - he will never be forgotten by any of us

It means a lot that you would come here to post. He had told me about his trouble standing for a long time. Unfortunately I have a similar (though probably milder) problem standing. When I last talked to him, I told him about how I didn't have a job and was honestly kind of scared to get one for the aforementioned reason. I wish I had told him that more recently I did finally get a part-time job as a cashier. With some effort, I convinced my employers to allow me to use a stool. It still hurts my legs since it's not always optimal to sit, but it is at least possible for me to get through the day.

Another thing; Tim told me he didn't know what he wanted to do with his life, even if he could do anything, and I think that was hard for him too. And though I've had some minor struggles in that area, it's not something that's ever held me back for very long. But I can understand the feeling of being lost with finding his goal in life that he must have had. What he had trouble realizing is that he was already doing great things that he should be proud of.

I never knew the name of the disorder that he had, though. CMT...
I've always had trouble with my muscles and exercise seems to not help me much, I wonder if it could be the same thing. I doubt it, but I'll ask my doctor on my next check-up. Thank you for the information about that, Lyla.

I never knew that he loved singing and cooked great, either. But I can totally see it being the case.

I definitely know he loved you guys very much, though.

Thank you, Lyla.

That's terrible news. My deepest condolences.

Tim really made a lasting impression, both by making his first not-so-lovely DMODs back in the late 90s and then reviewing them about fifteen years later Gave me a lot of laughes. A very friendly, intelligent sounding guy with a great sense of self-irony, a quality which not a lot of people have.

Thank you all so much for your kind responses. It is helpful to know what wonderful friends Tim had on this site. I will post the eulogy Tim's dad gave at the service where he speaks about Tim's online friends. It may help you know him a bit better and how much you meant to him.

Thank you for being his friend and now his families. You all made a difference.

This is the amazing eulogy given by Tim's dad, Tom Maurer. It is a spot-on picture of our precious son.

My theme today will be about how proud I was of my son.

Now, it may seem strange to say a father is proud of a son who did not have a job and who took his own life. But, I was so proud of him. And I hope when i am done telling you about him you will see why. I feel very lucky that I told Tim how proud I was of him while he was still with us. We went to a Magic game in January and ate at the same Italian restaurant where we ate before every game. I told him I was proud of him. He wouldn’t believe me but I tried to make him see.

Timothy William Maurer.

He was handsome. And not just because I used to look like him before the ravages of time. Just look at all these pictures.

Rochelle just told me a story that happened on their honeymoon last year.

They booked a dinner cruise in Savannah. Seemed like a romantic thing to do until they found out that everyone on the boat was 40 years older than them. They still had a good time. For the entertainment portion a couple of people were selected to come up on the stage and dance. Despite his physical disability Tim not only went up but he boogied down. The old ladies loved him. The one sitting next to Rochelle said ”He better save some of those moves for later tonight!”

(sorry this is long and will take several posts - but worth it)

He was smart.

I remember picking him up from Bishop Moore after he took the SAT. He said “Dad, The Math was kind of hard, but I got everything right on the verbal”.

I laughed and told him, yeah, right, no one does that. But he did.

He worked these logic puzzle books for fun. He had a powerful intellect. It carried him through a degree from Rollins even as his illnesses had begun to make school very hard.

He was a writer.

Tim loved writing. He loved the English language.

He was good.

A Rollins professor wrote a letter of recommendation for grad school and said that Tim was the best writer he had seen in 20 years of teaching.

He was a great editor too. He edited a few things for me over the years and always made things so much better.

He was a friend.

He didn’t have the widest circle of friends but he had quite a few and the depth of those friendships were real. Chris and Cux and Phil and many others. His friend Sebastian summed it up with these words.

“I miss Tim so much. He exemplified all the rare qualities of a true friend. He touched my life in a profound way.”

And Tim would be the first to point out that on-line friendships can be true and real as well. He was an active part of several communities on the internet and had many more friends there. He always fought for intelligent discourse and civility on the web. They miss him too.

Tim was sweet and sensitive.

When he was little Tim would dress up as Santa every Christmas Eve with a silly beard and hand out presents he bought at the dollar store. He would never break character and insist that none of the rest of us spoil the story either. That went on for years.

Tim had this yellow fedora he got from his Grandpa (who had a matching blue one). When he put it on he was his long lost twin brother Richard. He always was so disappointed that he missed seeing his brother who happened to come when Tim was out.

Tim cared deeply about injustice and evil in the world. He would get so upset and indignant about things like police brutality to Occupy Wall Street protesters or Ferguson or the like.

He wanted to move out of Florida after Scott and Bondi got re-elected.

Tim was funny.

My god but he loved to laugh. Monty Python, Douglas Adams, Black Adder, Dave Berry.

He and Rochelle would actually laugh so hard that they would roll around gasping for air. Gaki No Tsukai a Japanese show I just mispronounced was a favorite. Mystery Science Theater.

He had 3 favorite jokes. One was impossible long and very stupid and I can’t remember it, thankfully. Here are the other two.

A man is sitting at a bar when a panda walks in and orders a sandwich. The panda eats his food then pulls out a gun, shoots the mirror behind the bar, and then calmly walks out. The man sys “What the hell?” to the bartender. The bartender rummages around under the bar and finds a dictionary. He puts in on the bar and says “:He’s a panda. Look it up.” The man finds the entry for panda and reads. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."

Tim loved that joke because he loved the language and always had to have grammar and punctuation right. Here’s the next joke which he got from his Grandpa.

There was a writer who made some good money and bought a secluded ranch in the most deserted part of Montana so he could get away and write in seclusion. After he had been there a couple of weeks he was getting lonely. He saw a pickup off in the distance driving towards him. When it finally arrived a scrawny old cowpoke with missing teeth got out and said

”Howdy.”

Hello. Good to see someone else out here.

Well, I reckoned it was time to welcome you to our little neck of the woods. We don’t get too many new folks.

Thanks, I love it here.

Well, we thought it might be nice to have us a little party to welcome you.

Wow, that’d be great!

Now I have to tell you about parties out here. I don’t know your religion or nothin but there might be some drinkin.

Oh that’s ok. I take a drink or two myself

Well, there might be some swearin and gamblin.

I’m fine with that.

Might be some dancin.

I like dancing.

And, you know, with that drinkin and dancin and all, one thing might lead to another and there could be some kissin and some sex….

Well, that’s ok, if consenting adults want to, that’s natural. Listen, this sounds great. What can I bring?

Oh, you don’t hafta bring nuthin. Won’t be but you and me.

Tim was a brother.

He loved his big sister and her family. He loved being uncle Tim and watching them grow up.

He recently gave her tulips for her birthday Because he loved her.

All those hours of ToeJam and Earl.

He was so proud of her.

One time in a therapy session he was asked to describe his sister. Tim said that he had the best possible sister, No room for improvement.

He was so proud of you and the life she was making with Rob and the kids. He felt like it helped balance out all the struggles your Mom and I had to go through with him.

Tim was a Grandson.

He had a special relationship with my father. Here’s what Tim wrote:

“My grandfather’s name was Wilbur Maurer. He lived in Illinois, in a town called Paris (population 9000). He was a veteran of the Battle of the Bulge and spent most of his life working hard, including tough physical labor, in construction.

He and his father were responsible for several impressive brick buildings that still stand in Illinois. As a young child, I always looked forward to seeing him. He was extraordinarily creative, always working on some project or inventing something. (His motto: If you’re bored, you have no imagination”) He was also funny, a font of jokes that, at 11, I thought were spasm- inducing hilarious and many of which I still tell today.

I was a curious kid and would sometimes ask my grandpa questions that got us into some of the most amazing conversations I’ve ever had. He had strong, mostly liberal views that contributed greatly to the formation of the opinions I hold today. Sometimes I thought he was a genius, other times I thought he was crazy, but I always listened, eyes wide, inquisitive, sucking on some of Grandma’s sugarless candy.

My grandfather died in July of 2000. His passing was a tremendous loss to me and my family. In the time I spent with him I learned three important lessons: to always keep an open mind, never to believe anything just because someone else says I should, and that it’s ok to laugh at dirty jokes.”

Tim was a singer

What a good voice. The Beatles, Dylan, Jackson Browne but also They Might Be Giants, Beulah, Neutral Milk Hotel.

He knew the words to a thousand songs and he’d sing while cooking or folding laundry or riding in the car. We all loved to hear him sing. Especially his Mom. Lyla never knew the lyrics until Tim sang the song. Sometimes that was a big surprise…

Speaking of Mom.

Tim was a son.

Little Timmy started having some problems early on. Some little, some big.

His verbal and written IQ were very much further apart than the norm. He couldn’t remember faces. ( If you and I met somebody new we’d know who they were when we saw them again. Tim couldn’t do that. He knew friends and family by face, but it took a long time to get it).

He threw tantrums when he was picked on or thought something was unfair.

So Tim’s Mom quit her job to devote herself to Tim.

Lyla did everything. So nurturing and full of love and trying to help every step of the way.

When he was small she drew the longest running post-it note comic book series ever. “Super Timmy” every lunch box for years had an edition. Once I tried to draw one ( Lyla can’t really draw except for a cute cat) and he was outraged that I put a cape on Super Timmy. Then it was Mom all the rest of the way.

Every day she let him feel her love.

Lyla, if there was a Mom Hall of Fame your son would have put you in it.

Tim was a great cook.

Swiss Steak. Skyline Chili. Chicken Divan. That amazing Epic Stew full of 6 kinds of meat and extra testosterone.

Sorry to the folks in the back, standing. I’m long winded but I’m on a roll.

Tim was a traveler.

Despite some limitations he managed to travel to Peru to Machu Pichu. To 2 San Diego Comic cons. To New York City on his own.

Tim had CMT.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.

Most of you have never heard of it. But it is a neurological disorder like MS or MD that involves the loss of the sensation of touch in the feet and legs and sometimes other parts of the body.

Tim described it like when your foot is asleep, except it’s both feet and legs and it’s all the time, 24-7.

It also caused a lot of pain. Some days worse than others but always some pain.

There is no cure. And it was getting worse.

I don’t know what part that played in Tim’s choice but it had to be a factor.

Tim was a husband.

Rochelle.

This young, small, black, punk girl with a dog collar and spikes and music that sounded like a wild animal thrown into a jet engine showed up 11 years ago. She stalked my son and hit him over the head and brought him back to her cave (his words). And soon there wasn’t just Tim anymore. There was only “Tim and Rochelle”.

I suppose most young couples who are newly married think that their love is special. The word “soulmates” gets used.

But these two. They were something else. So complete in their sharing. So unconditional.

Tim would get so upset about the world not seeing that they were a couple because they looked so different on the outside. But he also reveled in those differences. He loved that they did not fit into the molds that society made.

They were as close to each other as two people get and talking to Rochelle is like I’m still with my son.

Rochelle, you have a fine family all around you. But you are my family too. You are my daughter too.

Tim was my boy.

We loved each other. As a Dad and a Son.

But it was more.

So many shared interests and experiences.

Comic books. A huge collection we amassed together. Conventions and shops and eBay and trades.

Books read aloud. Narnia. Tintin. Calvin and Hobbes.

Nintendo Walks. When he was little we went for many walks and we always had to turn the walk into Mario Brothers. Jump up and hit those leaves and get your coins.

Groo. A comic book that is a parody of Conan the barbarian that just made us laugh so hard together. Once we met the artist, Sergio Aragones (who has also done Mad magazine for years) at a convention. There was a long line. Tim was about 11 or so. When he got up there Tim wowed Sergio with his knowledge about the comic. Sergio is Spanish and he yelled “Thees Boy! Hee knows hees Groo!” Then he held up the whole line to sign a special poster, do a drawing, and pull out family photos of his dog. Tim loved that story.

The Orlando Magic. We went to games and talked NBA all season. Tim did not care about any other sport , but he knew as much about the Magic as anyone. He’d yell until he lost his voice.

I’ve been talking a while and I could go on and on. Just let me say that I lost a son. But I also lost so many pieces of my life too.

Once on a vacation, we for some unknown reason, decided that we would take turns and ask the same question in every store we came upon. We’d ask the clerk “pardon me, sir/madam but do you know where my associate and I might procure a fez?” It had to be those exact words. We thought it was very funny. But we didn’t know how to react when someone actually did know where we could get one.

Another shtick we had was to try to outdo each other in how poor we used to be. As in:

“ This spaghetti sauce has onions in it”

“Well in my day we would have been glad to have any spaghetti sauce at all.”

“You had sauce? Why we’d have killed for sauce. We had just noodles. And we were glad to have them!”

“Noodles? You had noodles? You must have been rich! We had just the one noodle. Drank the water off of that one noodle for years. And considered ourselves lucky!”

“You had a noodle?? We knew some rich folks in the next county that had themselves a noodle. We only had dirt. We ate dirt every meal and thanked the lord we had that.”

And so on. Until Lyla or Melissa would yell at us and make us stop.

Back to Pride.

I think it is easy to see why I would be proud of my son.

But as my partner Ed Baxa, pointed out at the recent service for our friend John Hamilton, we tend to make our departed loved ones into a saint. And that was certainly the beatification of John.

But Tim was no saint. Along with all the joy and good qualities I’ve described there was the pain and challenges and dashed hopes of dealing with his mental illness.

A few years ago Tim and I were at the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville and Dr. Beth Rush told me something that really changed things for me. She said that some people are just stupid or just lazy or just mean. Some people just make bad choices. But some people have an illness. Their wiring is off. As Tim always described it, they have a broken brain. Dr. Rush said that if we are angry, frustrated, or at a loss we should be angry and frustrated with the illness not with Tim. We wouldn’t be mad at Tim if he had cancer or heart disease. That made sense to me. But with mental illness it is hard to do. Because the personality, the essence of who they are is all mixed up with the illness. But I tried. And I did better for trying to see it.

I’m angry. And anger and I are old friends. I know anger well. I am so mad. But I’m mad at the disease. At the unfairness of it. That this illness took our precious Tim away.

Once at a rough session with me and Tim and Dr. March I tried to let Tim know that I understood. I told him that life is a road. And some people had a smooth well paved road. Others had potholes and bumps. Others had hills to climb. But that Tim had a mountain in his road. That he had to go down that road anyway and we would help him climb that unfair mountain.

Tim paused, and said in that way of his, “Dad, your analogy is flawed. I’m not on that road. I am in a pit off to the side of the road. Stuck in deep mud. If I am lucky I get my head up enough to see that there is a road. But I’m never going to get out of the pit to face that mountain.”

I’m almost done.

Tim and I didn’t talk about death all that much. Except for me to tell him to damn well stay alive. But he did love one particular eulogy. A Monty Python one of course. John Cleese gave a very memorable speech at the early passing of Graham Chapman. I apologize for the shock but I’m going to read an excerpt. For you, Tim. This is for you.

“Graham Chapman, co-author of the ‘Parrot Sketch,’ is no more.

He has ceased to be, bereft of life, he rests in peace, he has kicked the bucket, hopped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last, and gone to meet the Great Head of Light Entertainment in the sky, and I guess that we’re all thinking how sad it is that a man of such talent, such capability and kindness, of such unusual intelligence should now be so suddenly spirited away at the age of only forty-eight, before he’d achieved many of the things of which he was capable, and before he’d had enough fun.

Well, I feel that I should say, “Nonsense. Good riddance to him, the freeloading dink! I hope he fries. ”

And the reason I feel I should say this is, he would never forgive me if I didn’t, if I threw away this glorious opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. Anything for him but mindless good taste. I could hear him whispering in my ear last night as I was writing this:

‘All right, Cleese, you’re very proud of being the very first person to ever say shit on British television. If this service is really just for starters, I want you to be the first person ever at a British memorial service to say duck!’

You see, the trouble is, I can’t. If he were here with me now I would probably have the courage, because he always emboldened me. But the truth is, I lack his balls, his splendid defiance. And so I’ll have to content myself instead with saying ‘Betty Mardsen…’

That’s it. Goodbye Tim. You will always be in my heart.

Oh. One more thing…

“You had dirt?? You were so lucky! All we had were rocks. Broke out all our teeth. You ever try to gum a rock?”

Yes, cocomom, have you tried out Malachi the Jerk? or perhaps gone through this?

People seem to be pretty much in agreement that Malachi's the best dmod in a long time, and I can see why - the relationship between hero and villain was pretty good and it made you even question who's truly at fault here or at least, at the most fault. I don't really know which stuff was Tim and what stuff was Leprochaun though. Apparently one of the shell jokes was Lep since he told me.

Maybe there's something you can see that we don't. You did say he was a good writer and we could see that with that Crazy Old Tim Project.

That was a lot of dmods to play, too.

Th majority of the scripts were written by cocomonkey. I think I wrote five or six. I'm fairly certain that I started all the scripts I added with "z-" just to make it easy to differentiate. Though I may have forgotten to do that for one of things I wrote simply for animation purposes(may have been for a torch). You can look in the story folder if you're that curious as to which ones I wrote.

I haven't played it myself, but it sounds like it's just the exact same game with some new features, like the option of using Sega style graphics or slightly improved graphics (and the same with music) as you play. It also has a New Game+ mode and probably some bug fixes that weren't in the original game. So I'd say it's an improved port, but there are a couple Steam reviews which suggest it freezes and runs slowly on their computer, so be wary of that possibility.

I've played the demo and it wasn't all that great. There's definitely potential for a good story with what happens in the first dungeon, but it's got an unnecessary amount of cutscenes and I unlocked the rabbit minigame about a million times.

Still might play the full version. Maybe. Things I might get almost never go on sale though.

I was busy these past months and only discover this now...
Tim, two weeks ago I had eventually tracked and fixed the FreeDink bug you reported me, and added you to the THANKS file. Sent you an e-mail. Was putting the lack of answer on summer time. Feeling like a fool now. And affected.
Rest in peace.
