People are always stealing stuff from me before I come up with it. They do this with time machines. They also stole this idea from the future.

Damn them. Damn them all.


Speaking of familiar. Am I the only one whom the previous post has disappeard for?

I invented something that has been used a few times: the Icomenu. Where you hold down a button and a set of icons appear in a ring around your character, so you hold a direction and release the button to pick your option. It's great because once you memorize which buttons are where, it becomes an instantaneous thing (you could just hold the direction and tap the button to immediately hit it). The only downside is the iffyness of diagonals, if you include them. Kind of the gmaepad equivalent of a right-click menu!

I would have invented the internet, if Al Gore hadn't beaten me to it.

Sorry Jeffool, and anyone else who noticed, the previous post mysteriously vaporized...and I'm going to take it as a sign that I shouldn't have posted it in the first place...besides, I'm too lazy to rewrite it.


Are you going through crunch over there? I miss the warm fuzzy feeling of reading new posts.

I suspect they are just inventing various and sundry ways of infuriating me for their next game: Jamie Fristrotron's Pro Progressive Game Designer.
