Jump Leads - coming soon!
Posted in Other Stuff by Squirminator2k at 22/06/07 7:56pm CEST

Fans of science fiction rejoice - my latest project, Jump Leads, launches very soon. I'm a huge scifi and fantasy geek, with a particular interest in Red Dwarf, Doctor Who and H2G2. So it's no surprise that I would take that love and try to craft something of my own. My own science fiction Universe for myself and others to enjoy.

Jump Leads is a webcomic, created and largely written by myself (with additional contributions from numerous people including our very own Worm Mad). The art is provided by the rather exceptional JjAR, whose name you might recognise if you've ever visited the FanArt board on the Team 17 Forum. It looks utterly dazzling.

The script for the first "issue" of Jump Leads was sent to the BBC who enjoyed reading it but ultimately decided to pass, although they did ask me to send them something else. It's some of my best writing, if I do say so myself, and fans of Scifi, comedy, and combinations of the two will undoubtedly get a kick out of it.

The webcomic is due to launch in early July. Watch this space for more information.

Classic Worms info required
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 06/06/07 12:09am CEST

I'm currently after as much information as possible about the original Amiga release of Worms, specifically with regards to custom maps. For example, I know that you can add a string of numbers prior to the file extension (e.g. "FILENAME.1234.WRM") which affect gravity, friction, water colour and sky colour, but I'm not sure how these work specifically or what numbers do which.

This is not for Dream17, but rather for another project I'm involved in. If you can help, or you can at least point me in the right direction, drop me an email.

Forum Maintenance

SupSuper is currently tweaking the layout of the forum, so it might look a bit misshapen at the moment, but it is usable.

[Edit by SupSuper]It's back to normal now. Enjoy the shiny new skin.
