  1. Monday morning 8:30 CET and almost 30 people online...wow.

    1. Dragofer


      Nothing like 03/13/21 12:31 PM, when we apparently had 4230 members online simultaneously. Must've been a new TDM version release.

  2. Yesterday they released a 1988 Queen song that was not included with "The Miracle" album.

    A good moment to revisit this cool album which IMO was their best work in the 1980s.


  3. After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.

    Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?

      No, I did not read the comic before thus I cannot compare both works.

      The show has high production values, but, as I have mentioned above, the xxl-supernatural fantasy setting (dreamland, eternals, demons, hell, etc.) is not my cup of tea... If I recall correctly, the TV show of American Gods had similar strange vibes.

      However, still thinking whether I should give the comic a chance...

      If you do, Start with The Sandman: Season of Mists . it's better as an introduction, Don't go with the first album. My personal favorite is (volume 2) The Dolls house

      The sandman from the comics seems to match well with the actor they used, I like it.

      American Gods and Sandman were both adapted from books/graphic novels written by Neil Gaiman so makes sense that they would feel similar.

      Honestly would suggest you read his books if you haven't. Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neverwhere, American Gods, Stardust, Coraline, Good Omens, Interworld, The Graveyard Book etc etc.  One thing to keep in mind, Neil Gaiman likes to write melancholy endings. They usually don't end with "And they all lived happily ever after", though they are not exactly sad endings. There's a finality to a lot of them that often leave me a little sad. There's real consequences at the ends. Especially Stardust and The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

  4. Boris Johnson's resignation does not change the fact that Australia is home to 29 million kangaroos and Wales has a population of just over three million.

    If the Australian kangaroos were to invade Wales, one resident would have to fight almost ten kangaroos at a time.

      But did you account for the fact that they would arrive upside down, fall on their heads and be dazed? Unless your invention is capable of both translation and rotation.

      Better hope the kangaroos don't form an alliance with the emus, who have already won a war.

    4. JackFarmer



      That's the problem: In my boundless high spirits I gave my invention the spawnarg "Must_be_on_its_feet". If one of the kangaroos now comes up with the idea of using the value "1" (and since you can only use "0" or "1" the probability is 50%), this will be doom!

      Thoughtlessness, your name is Jack Farmer!

  5. I'm just wondering how someone like wellingtoncrab, with such a flawed development environment as DR/DM, apparently run by "volunteers" and "lazy guys", managed to complete this excellent Iris Mission in just a year.

    1. Nort


      You guys seem to somehow think in terms of praises and insults. That's just not how I think on a basic level. I think I'll give up trying to be understood around here.

    2. Wellingtoncrab


      It did admittedly take me longer than that - the current iteration of Iris was started in late 2019!  As far as the earlier attempts … well lets not talk about those.

      What is absolutely true is that my mission would never have seen the light of day without a lot of help and patience from those very volunteer developers!

      Special shout out to our VERY EXCLUSIVE discord server/cult - “The Esoteric Order of Dragofer” for all the support/human sacrifices over the years.

      Sunburn at below freezing temperatures sounds like your average Finnish winter; maybe I missed my calling.

  7. McCain Western Fries taste best when heated in the air fryer at 180 degrees Celsius for 17 minutes.

    1. Amadeus


      I absolutely love my air fryer. At first I was pretty skeptical about getting one, but once I started making wings in them, it just stole my heart

    2. JackFarmer


      Oh yes, the best invention since Sony came up with the Playstation One.

      McCain Western Fries

      Is that your current job? 😜

  8. I need a new voice actor for my thief. Is there somebody out there who can point me to someone or could handle the job himself?

      For reasons unknown, Andros is not rechabable anymore. :(

    4. JackFarmer


      @duzuenko: you don;t want to heart that. It would be like Taylor Swift pretending to be Tom waits! :)

      I couldn't read that without an accent. xD

  10. Anyone else interested in voice acting? Till now, I have Andros, New Horizon and Goldchocobo on board.

      I'd be interested, but I don't have my new mic bought yet. You can also try to contact some of the volunteers listed here: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Voice_actors

    2. Epifire


      I'm pretty tight on time trying to wrap up modeling projects, else I would. But I'd be interested in hearing about the roles in any case.

    3. duzenko


      Zero experience or skill, but I could try

  11. I thought there is a "hanging skeleton" model somewhere, but I cannot find it. Any ideas?

      Skeletons hanging in graveyards? I really doubt that. :)

      Everything related to bones/skeletons is in graveyard.


  12. Uih, 2.07 already out? Very kühl & thanks a lot! :)
