Well, okay, I haven't been here long but I know I'm not leaving any time soon, so I'll post something here.

My name is Scott and I live in Dallas, Texas with my beautiful wife Diana, from Colombia. I started playing games in the (very) early 80's with Avalon Hill wargames. Since then I've tried everything, D&D, X-Box, WoW, but I discovered Car Wars in 1986, and I've been looking for this game ever since.

I started life as a computer programmer, mainly RPG on IBM midrange systems, but grew tired of hammering keys. I turned to flying, and now am a 747 First Officer for Evergreen International Airlines. I get to see the world, and can play Darkwind on layovers! I'm 47 years old, and hope to be playing DW for many years ahead.

Thanks for the game, Sam. I look forward to playing a lot more of it.

Nukie

I have notebooks full of GURPS Vehicles designs, which would shock and sadden you if you knew what that was.


Hell, that's nothing.  I had an Excel sheet I built to design Traveler vehicles using GDW's "Fire, Fusion and Steel" rules.  Now THOSE were detailed and crunchy.  Talk about sad.

Well, sorry to trump you all but.....

A small line, moved slowly across the screen, and with expert timing, you had to press the spacebar to drop a small dot onto a big block!

Ahhh- halcyon days.

Awesome, Brunwulf. I'd like a copy of that in case I get tired of Darkwind.

I missed this post till now... Didn't realize you were a musician too! And I guess I'm in the minority since I prefer Bluegrass and Americana (old country). ;)

Sorry, 'rock and roll band' was used there as a generic term.  We do bluegrass, blues, and Americana in addition to punk, funk, rock.  Maybe it's a gimmick but I don't like sticking to just one genre.  :)

my dad made a dambusters game for me on the ZX81

there was a grey rectangle of water... a black triangle of dam.. your 'plane' flew over at a random height and you had to drop a bomb on the dam

awesome  :cyclops:

I remember inputting a game from a magazine for the ZX81 - it was a rally/driving game.

You had two lines of * running parallel up and down the screen and you had to steer your car in the middle the gap and not hit the sides. The track moved up the screen as you played and if I remember rightly the gap slowly close.

We are talking 30ish years here so the memory is a bit shaky ;-)

i typed in code for a game called the trials of hamurabi, from a book into the basic interpreter in my father's computer when i was around 6 or 7 in the early 70's (maybe 1974-5?). computer graphics was not yet widely available, nor was the "personal computer". the computer i used was a "mini-computer", basically a small mainframe, called a pdp-11, running the pip operating system, and i think my dad leased it to run his business, price new to buy was over 100k $. and yes, this is so long ago that software was distributed as source code on paper, cheap removable media like floppies were also not available yet, the removable backup media from that computer was basically hard drive platters that came in this enormous yellow case, maybe a 12 inch wide and 3 inch deep circle weighing several pounds that you had to lug around. also spent a lot of time as a little kid on site at night at a commercial data processing center while my dad got batch processing done. they basically put me in a room with 20 or 30 vt52 terminals and gave me a log in and said have fun, lol, computer security was not something people thought about yet, obviously. played hearts a lot on it, and there was this text mode game of star trek that drew space with text characters, i think stars were *, klingon ships were K, etc. memories...

I remember typing in games on a TRS-80. Code came straight from magazines. Then one day, my friend saved up a couple hundred bucks and bought a tape drive. It was just a cassette player player that could plug into the computer he had, then we would buy programs on cassettes. It took 90 minutes to play the cassette, so it took 90 minutes to load the game we wanted to play. No hard drive big enough to store the games, so we had to load it every time we wanted to play.

My kids would start to bleed out of their ears if they had to wait 90 seconds for a game to load.

I am, I'm me

Who are you to look down
At what I believe?
I'm on to your thinking
And how you deceive

Well, you can't abuse me
I won't stand no more
Yes, I know the reasons
Yes, I know the score

I am and I'll be
I will, you'll see
I am and I'll be
I am, I'm me

How I tried to please you
Live the way you said
Do the things that you do
Like the living dead

Then the truth it hit me
Got me off my knees
It's my life I'm living
I'll live as I please

I am and I'll be
I will, you'll see
I am and I'll be
I am, I'm me

Now's the time to stand tall
Start your life anew
Freedom lies in your heart
Now's the time for you

I am and I'll be
I will, you'll see
I am and I'll be
I am, I'm me

Can't you see? Can't you see?
I'm me, I'm me, me, me, me, me
I am, I'm me
I am, I'm me

Can't you see? Can't you see?
I'm me, I'm me, I'm me
I am, I'm me
I am, I'm me

Can't you see that I'm me?
I'm me, I'm me, look at me
I am, I'm me
I am, I'm me
