Thread: 10 years of FGR releases

  1. #1

    10 years of FGR releases

    From this on June 3rd 2009:



    ... to this on June 2nd 2019:



    To think that up to 2009, "FGR doesn't release his projects" was quite the prominent Massassi shtick. 'oof!

    And to think that on May 31st 2013, I still thought that I had something more left in m----

    Anyway, post your favorite saberopus release.

    I've released many comments into this website over the years... :'-)

    I've been intending to play DXN for quite some time, but I haven't ever really gotten to where I'm ready/willing to reinstall and get into Deus Ex itself, as a thing, for quite a few years. I tend to play a fairly small number of games in a given year, and spend quite a lot of time with them, so there's always some other thing on my list that takes priority over "reinstalling Deus Ex" specifically (not "playing DXN").

    Maybe I should take this Annikumbeversary as the proper occasion to get around to it! :'-)

    Also, did you really not release anything prior to 2009? Or just nothing at the scope of TODOA or DXN or whatever?

    From my very first post (and before) 'til June 3rd 2009, there were zero FGR releases.

    The only thing I did release before TODOA MP was this Soviet mod for Civ 4, and on the day of its original release on Dec 31st 2005 or something, GoY told me that it didn't count. Outrageous.

    Straight (as in not facetious) saberopus posts feel weird.
    Looks like we're not going down after all, so nevermind.

    I still wish something like Kentie's Launcher (for Deus Ex) could be made for JK to do away with the whole "hey you have to retrieve this and that to get that and this unofficially patched version of JK" stuff.

    Maybe after one day when someone will stumble upon that fateful filthy gas station bathroom in Kansas where it turns out that JK's source code has been stored all these years.

    Yeah, nice work! I feel like what I'm about to post is a very FGR-esque sentence, but: I'm moving this week, and during packing, uncovered my long-hidden original JK CDs, which is exciting and made me think I should run JK The Way It Was Meant to be Played™, but now we also live in a braver newer world where I can play TODOA v3.423.4.3.1.4.6.17 w/ jkRTXenabled or whatever. Boh!

    Oh snap, saberopus!

    Thanks, Dark__Knight! It's definitely a (belated) shared prize for the both of us. And with MrRavenX, wherever he is these days.

    (And Elmo, considering he co-wrote the story with me. And Xzero for helping me out with quite a lot of gameplay parts. And...)

    The credit is all yours, my friend. I watched a video of someone playing through TODOA the other day and I grimaced at some of my dialogue. I've since taken several voice acting classes and have a few credits with AAA games and a few anime dubs (helps living near the Funimation headquarters). I probably would have never pursued any of that as a hobby had it not been for working with you!

    I think - if you ever care to have a remastered special edition George Lucas tribute 8k version of TODOA, I'd be happy to re-record the lines in better quality.

    Very cool! I'm glad to have been a part of that development.

    Of course, there are many things in TODOA that make 2019mubeki think "why did 2009mubeki do this", but that's of course how it goes with every assessment of a past project.

    (That said, in the case of DXN, I'd still recommend one to play the DLCs first just to see how more refined and professional they are (made in 2015 and 2017) compared to the main mod (made in 2004-2013))

    Don't beat yourself up over it, I thought you did a fine job! I enjoyed your voiceovers in TODOA. I get that you have a high standard for yourself especially now that you're a pro, though.

    Thanks! Hardly a pro, but more experienced, for sure.

    DXN's stats in early 2018 when I announced the upcoming release of its Fifth Anniversary Update, which got on the front page:

    Lessons to be learnt: JK has only ~17% of the cult game value of Deus Ex? The download-bots slack off more with JK releases? I should have gotten Koobie to make a promotional video for DXN back in December 2013?

    Of course, I'd upload this new TODOA package on Massassi if Brian were to remove TODOA TC SP and MP first *wink wink*
