Well, I being nostalgic and I decided to ask, how did you end up here? I'll start.

I was playing Jedi Outcast when in the setup bar I saw something that said "Mods". I went to google and typed "PC Game Mods Jedi Outcast". Good old google directed me to www.pcgamemods.com. I thought, "cool!". I started downloading all these mods and as I was looking through the read-mes, I saw many references to "all the guys at lucasforums" . So I decided to check the place out. The rest, as they say, is history.


I'm uber 1337 post count!

I went to http://www.jediknightii.net/ (Hey lookie, PotD was by leXX) a bunch before the game came out. And I would go there to get mods. I was stuck at the Jedi Temple Puzzle before fighting Desann. So I looked at what the forums where, signed up as Tie, but it was taken, and Tie 23 rhymed. Then I got it Changed to TiE 23

It's all because of JediKnightII.net (http://www.jediknightii.net). I was really into Jedi Knight, when I heard about Jedi Outcast, I was excited and went to JediKnightII.net (http://www.jediknightii.net). I saw the website. When Jedi Outcast patch 1.04 was released, I took a look at the forums. But I lurked.... Until when I signed up! :D

In the 'post Obiwan for PC letdown' in early 2001, which I heard about on a site called jediknight.net, I noticed these forum thingys ...
... I was dying for info, and was hearing rumors that one of my fave games ever was getting a sequel, I decided to peruse the forums. Been here since.

Interesting note - I was very resistant at first - I'm a pre-Web nethead, and still do much with 'text-only' sources. In particular, I was very resistant of moving away from my beloved Usenet to these 'one subject per web site' forums ... very inefficient. But, alas, you go where the people are ...

Hey, cool!

I got here while looking for previews and such for JKA. I eventually landed up at the JKA forum, liked the place and signed up.
The few more months and I was a hardcore LFer

07-28-2004, 05:52 AM
How I signed up:
Was looking for a way of getting Jedi for SWG and was somehow directed to the LFN SWG forums, I signed up under my bro's usual screen name, IG-64 (which is mine now :P)

How I "got" here:
Was looking for cheats for Jedi Academy, looked on JediKnightII.net, like most of you ppl, found the link to their forums and have been here ever sence. I also made my avatar around the SSBM character Game & Watch, because my bro was good at fighting with him, and we liked the whole concept of the character, so we slapped sabers on him and made it an avatar.

Astrotoy7
07-28-2004, 06:01 AM
I could swear Crow made just such a post not too long ago.....

anyways

yeah jk2.net, looking for maps and such. I spent most of my time at the JA forums, thius getting toughed up :p When there I noticed al few of the 'regulars' I knew, IG-64, Crow, Clemme etc were wandering off to here. I did a couple of recon runs and thought you were all freaks. About 6 months later I came to settle.

My very first post in the swamp was to lexxy, asking what the XX stood for, the thread got closed after that.... but I soon learned that lexxy was our mum and that is no way to speak to your forum mum ! :p

Now I have been year about a year, and though Ive had some altercations with quite a few persons, theyve mostly been resolved.....there's only one person I wish I had the power to set on fire with the power of my mind ........ :p

Heres how I describe the most endearing(to me) swampies :

-Crow - aka the man with no face who looks like Harry Potter. The spam master
-IG-64 - bored. aka mr G & W who always sticks up for Mr GWB !
-Sabre - the indian goth who makes lists and struck the first blow in the EV*** conflict
-CapNColostomy - aka my evil twin - the only person I have ever used the *F* word against on the internet. Now a chat buddy.....great taste in music :D
-Mike Windu - needs to speak to Dr Phil. Has a bizarre fascination with R kelly.......
-Pie - cool norwegian goth dude, cool musical tastes too :D
-ET - king who went from hero to zero, once he stopped using hair gel and bought the geekiest watch ever conceived
-Siv - quirky sense of humour, superhero fetish. He's just such a nice guy, you gotta wonder if he's really a serial killer...... :( :p
-Obi - one minute he's a preacher, t'other he's wearin his jocks outside his pants.....its kinda frightening
-Mike(txa) - always nice to have an old man around lecturing us and tellin us 'back in the day' stories
-Kurgan - amazingly scary, great at keeping those JA forum nuts in line
-Kain - goth in denial ? Has death list like Uma
-Selene - fellow Bloodrayne fan
-Zee- worrying admiration for Russell Crowe - likes chipping in when I heckle Kain :p
-Jed - hardass, lost his way for a while, now has mojo back + nice av
-Groovy -sailor boy whom power has corrupted terribly :(
-Prime- way cool canadian swamper, great respect for Primeski !
-Legameboy- looks like an oompa loompa but is cool for a young un
-Rhythe - fellow aussie. no fun at Lan parties
-Gonk - fellow aussie. blows his horn all the time
-Lexxy - coolest forum mum ever !
-InsaneSith - hentai pervert, only LF person to anally intrude astro

um, thats it, the rest of you suck !


j/k

came here on and off through JK mods and XWA info, but then really got involved in the forum when following the development of Obi-wan (back when it was a pc game that might have been cool).
Stayed through the development of JO, then just hung around with nothing better to do...

Come to think of it, games i've followed on dev forums:
Obi-wan: Cancelled, moved to xbox, tanked.
JO: Dissapointing quake/elite force clone
Morrowind: Average, but didn't live up to potential
JA: Lost interest by this point.
Warhammer online: Canned.

Not a good record... sigh...

I was actually looking for help in making a scenerio for galactic battlegrounds similar to archers blood from AoE which I was gonna call Troopers Blood. (which kinda contributed to my name).

and when no one wanted to help me and all they wanted to do was criticise it and me. Come to think of it, I don't know why I ever stayed. Because they were such terd burgalars. But I grew away from that crowd and bought JO. I decided to see what the comunity was like. And you guys were pretty cool. I didn't really post that much. Until the JA forum poped up, and then I hung around there. Then about November of last year I decided to come back to the swamp. And I'm still looking for a way out :eek:

Anyway, I saw those active threads at the top of www.jediknight.net, and I decided to click on them and read them. Then, the Asteroids TFFA Mod project was being developed, and I thought sweet, so then I registered after a while!! And then...I spread around Lucas Forums very quickly!!

I registered to the forums after I saw AotC... so I posted a little in the AotC forum. There were a lot of great active members back then in this forum...

At one point, i was lured in the Swamp by a link to a sig pic competition in Darky's sig. I recall you had to pay 100 points to participate, and I didn't have them. I however found the 'sig pic request thread' as well as the avatar one (they beared different names at the time). I still fulfil some requests from time to time, for old time's sakes.

@Z : I do remember Lost Welshman... he was a fellow sig maker at the time. If I rembember correctly he was pondering life when he left...

Well I went to Lucasarts.com to find some info on Jedi Academy and then I clicked on the link for Star Wars:Battlefront.I looked around and saw an interview with this guy.I clicked the link and found myself at swbattlefront.net.I read the interview and then saw a forums link.I clicked on it and went went straight to the main forum.I went into a thread and posted.My first post:



I really want to play on Naboo.In the trailer on naboo it looks mad.Imagine using the jetpack clone and flying over about a dozen droids and using those grenades
BLAM! all of them are gone.

I also want to get my hands on those AT-AT's
your on hoth and all those speeders are flying around and you use your blasters on the speeders and 2 shots and they are gone.

Also i want to get onto get onto that speeder bike.Flying around at top speeds and blasting away anyone in your way.
and those ewoks.Id love to see them throwing stones on stormtroopers and using those logs to trip over the AT-ST.But i wouldnt want to be in the AT-ST at the time.

I'm back on demand, from one 'Tyrion'

....


I need to burp.


...wait...

no... I don't...


So how is everyone?

Reffering to the people of ye Olde, not the scary new people who I want to hit with sticks. Long, pointed sticks...
