Microsoft is an evil company that supports monopoly. Do you support that or something? You think Microsoft seems to be a pretty "perfect company in every sense." Sony, Sega, Nintendo, Square Enix, all of these companies I still support have made a ton of problems.

How is Microsoft an "Evil" company? They're like every other company out in the world, including Sony: They're out to make a profit.

"Let me tell you what a fanboy is. A fanboy is someone who will actually look at a true fact that I stated, and despite the repercussions that you get from owning a 360 because M$ is too cheap to put a high quality cooling system in the console, you will still stick up and defend the console and criticize anyone who points out the facts all of you remain oblivious to, no matter how many times your console has failed."

Why are you explaining what a fanboy is? No offense, but as far as I can tell, this is exactly what you're doing - ignoring Fred's arguments and replying with things that have little or no fact behind them, and ranting about fanboy's and if people have played with a particular console or not (which is irrelivent). You've started to turn this topic into a "which console is better" argument, which always comes down to what you, personally, like most.

I just have individual folders for each of my GM games. Within each I usually have the editable, any .exe's I've created, and folders such as graphics, music, tilesets, etc.
I used to organize everything in Complete, WIP, abandoned, and examples/other, but when I bought a new computer I wasn't making as many games with GM, so there wasn't really any point in organizing them that way.

In Topic: Remove/reduce The Flood Control

@caniac, sabriath: Unfortunately, we can't customize flood control for individual sub-forums or for selected member groups.

@sabriath: Not sure which flood-control value applies to Search. There are separate flood-control values for posts and PMs -- both set to 60 seconds.

I'm perfectly willing to reduce the delay to 15 - 30 seconds. Can't hurt to try it. We can always set it back if there are problems.

But I'll poll the Staff about it, to make sure I'm not over-looking something dangerous.

I don't think reducing the time is a very good idea. It stops spam when it occurs, and on the odd occasion slows a member down by just a few seconds - potentially giving them enough time to actually review their post before posting it.

People should be able to spare a few seconds. Seriously, it's not like you have to wait an hour or anything.

Why do people have an issue with waiting 60 seconds before they can post again? If you're posting that fast your content probably isn't thought out and/or written very well. If you happen to be able to formulate your ideas really quickly, can type at a fast write, and can review your post to look out for any typo's, and happen to hit the flood control, then just suck it up and wait a few seconds. Yes, I said seconds of your ever valuable time. Just listen to some music or something. ;)

I don't think I'll make the deadline, which isn't really surprising.. I started the project 3 or 4 days ago. Either way, for the fun of it, here's another screenshot. This time with a jet pack :medieval:

I'm not sure what the enemies are. They're like dogs without arms or legs.
