The contest is closed, and my mod, A Hero's Death, is now available for download and voting in the NWN vault.
If you have NWN and the expansions, please download it and give it a play. With any luck, you'll love it and give it a glowing evaluation.
But play fair -- don't vote until and unless you've played it.
Please feel free to leave feedback on either of the following threads:
(I'm going to copy this entry to the top of the page and leave it there until the contest ends, but at the moment I'm at lunch and for some reason b2evo thinks I don't have write privileges for my PHP files. I'd complain about the amount of irritation involved in switching to blogging software, but of course if I were still doing this by hand it would be 3.5 cubic bitches for me to update away from home in the first place.)
Updated A Hero's Death (see previous entry). Fixed a bug in a script I hadn't recompiled. Special thanks to SpoonyGundam for finding it.
The Mod Squad
I've finished my entry for the BioWare writing contest. If you have a copy of Neverwinter Nights, I'd appreciate it if you'd download my mod, A Hero's Death (might need to a do a right-click, Save As, as neither Firefox nor Konqueror seems to recognize it as a binary file), and give some feedback in the appropriate Pyoko thread (warning: spoilers). The contest deadline isn't until tomorrow, so if you notice any bugs I could squash at the last minute, please let me know.
(Corresponding update to Features page.)
My New Year's resolutions this year: get a car, get a real job, and move out of my grandparents' house.
While I have yet to properly gauge the realness of my new job, and am still apartment hunting, I have achieved at least one of these goals as of today.
Beep-beep! Out of my way! I'm a motorist!
(Also, in turning on my radio, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that all my favorite stations were already entered as presets. If I were a pothead, like my pothead brother, who I believe may be some sort of pothead, I would probably attempt to make some sort of magical goddamn cosmic miracle of this. However, as I am a man of science, and realize that people who listen to NPR and classic rock aren't really a rarity, I just think it's kind of neat.)
I will not be appearing on Jeopardy this season.
That is all.
My first double-post, and it's a whole lot easier than doing it by hand.
Updated Features, including my avatar from The Adventures of Dr. McNinja.
Also all the index links should be fixed by now; if you get kicked to index.html instead of this page let me know.
Have finally bitten the bullet and decided to switch over to blogging software. Site now runs on b2evolution. Ideally this should mean I update more often because now I don't have to worry about all that tedious mucking about in the archives. In practice? Well, we'll see.
All the old features should still be up, though at one point in the install I nuked my entire directory and had to restore, so please let me know if there are any missing pages, pictures, etc. which I've overlooked.
Also, while I cut my teeth on HTML, I'm new to this whole PHP thing, so, while I think the site looks pretty good, there are a lot of things I'd like to refine -- most notably, I'd like each month's archive page to have a different intro, like the old archive pages I made myself with my own two hands. So there's plenty of work to do yet.
Keep watching this space.
