SUNDAY 25TH APRIL 1999
Interview with Bill Hindorff, former Tengen programmer/producer.
A few goodies for ya'll to stare at above, dont forget to check out the update tho ;)
Sorry about many of they new scans being very bad quality. My old scanner broke down (Plustek FB3) and I had to get a new. Well the new one (Scott/Compeye 36M) aint exactly a great scanner eventhough it was quite expensive. Well I'm gonna deliver this pile of crap back, so no more crappy scans.
SATURDAY 10TH APRIL 1999
K, most of you may have noticed that a worm was supposed to arrive here a week ago. Well my scanner broke down and is being fixed (which might take a few weeks). So the worm will be a bit delayed, but check out this cool stuff I found for ya instead.
SUNDAY 28TH MARCH 1999 (2ND UPDATE)
Thats it for today, sorry, but I'll have another update ready tomorrow with some very special stuff "from russia with love" heh (and no, it aint Tetris, but something even cooler feat. a damn worm), stay tuned :)
SUNDAY 28TH MARCH 1999
All of NW should be online now, and I hope to have the first update ready later today (gotta get some sleep first).
It's incredible to see all the hits the new location have had today (just turned 700+), I wonder if it'll pass the record of 956 pageviews from 22 june 1998 (hehe).
FRIDAY 26TH MARCH 1999 (IT'S BACK!)
Back after almost a whole month being offline. It was cauased by the owner of internet1 being extremely greedy, although he kinda HAD to be, since NES WORLD ate quite a lot of space and bandwidth. At the end undating was almost impossible since I was put as backbone user, meaning almost no bandwidth was left for me.
A note written by Mr. Roger Howard at February 23rd told me that the site would be removed at the end of February. I quickly qrote a page which I would add, to let people know what was happening and that I had to move elsewhere. But Howard had already changed the password to the account which made it impossible to update or even move the stuff. Thank god I make a backup CD of NW every month, so nothing was lost. I later found out that he actually was trying to blackmail (strong word, but hey) me to make a new web page for internet1. I had already agreed to make this page for Howard, but because I had not heard from him for weeks about the design etc I had made, I went "fuck that, he probably aint that serious about it then".
Well the site was removed on 2nd March, causing a crazy number of e-mails and notes on serveral messageboards. I've replied as many of the e-mails as I possibly could (limited time + I was away, at school, until the 14th March). I've got a page on emuclassics called Classicon which covers other great consoles such as the SNES, Genesis, SMS etc., and decided to ask emuclassics for hosting. They quickly responded that they would like to host the site, but getting the P/L took a few weeks, because the webmaster was away on wacation or whatever.
Well here it is, back online and faster than it was on internet1. You might've noticed the banners on some pages. These will be added to *every* page over time. It was a part of the deal, and the least I could do to help funpoint (who runs emuclassics.com).
PS: Please note that NES WORLD aint 100% uploaded, but will be over the next days, so please dont report any bugs the next few days, thanks :)
WEDENSDAY 10TH FEBRUARY 1999
I've added a site faq which hopefully will answer the most frequent questions which enters my mailbox everyday, but doesnt get answered. I'd like to answer all questions personally, but I simply dont have the time to do so. Sorry!
SUNDAY 31ST JANUARY 1999
As those of you who have visited Classicon might have guessed, things arent exactly going as planned over there. I've been extremely busy at work the past month or so and havent really had any energy to update both Classicon and NES WORLD, so I ofcourse picked NW. I hope things will change soon, and I'll find some neat SNES info to add, since the SNES part will be the one i'll put my focus on first.
Oh Toot, of toots nes shoot, has changed and moved his site. It's is now called the Nintendo Information Insemination and is located at kickass brinstar.com. Go there and check it out (his Ian Bell interview, which he btw did before I did mine, has some better answers from Bell).
THURSDAY 22ND JANUARY 1999
Yep, were finally on internet1.net, and still as backbone user, so sorry if everything is slow as h***. Well here's some new stuff for ya.
THURSDAY 8TH JANUARY 1999
Added a guestbook and a chatroom! (just for the kicks of it :)
MONDAY 4TH JANUARY 1999 (2ND UPDATE)
Hey again, Just a small note to let you all know that I'm planning on moving NES WORLD off internet1.net. I've been placed as backbone user on internet1 which means there's almost no bandwidth left for me. It takes me over 5 minutes to upload 25k, if it doesnt timeout. I cant live with this so I'm checking my options to move elsewhere. please use http://come.to/nesworld when you access the site, cause then you'll be sure you access the page even when it moves.
Sorry if the update below has screwed everything up, but I cant update on internet1 under these conditions. So until I find a new place to host the site, it's been put on hold.
Thanks for your support! :)
MONDAY 4TH JANUARY 1999
Well I got a delayed a few hours, so it became a monday update and not sunday, sorry. I had to finish the movie Gotcha!, the old lame movie which also has it's own NES game. Hmm seems like the Pizza I ordered earlier wasnt made of the best ingrediences(sp?), my stomach hurts as h***.
Anyway here's what I've got for you this time!
FRIDAY 1ST JANUARY 1999
Woop! Happy New Year! and welcome to the first '99 update of NES WORLD. Well I wasnt really going to update today, since I'm quite tired (wonder why), but a few hours ago I decided to play a little battletanx on the N64 (sorry, but I had to buy this game). Anyway I got tired of playing and decided to watch the credits before I switched off the N64, just to see if there were any names there I knew.
I had this strange feeling that I actually would find someone who used to make NES games there, and I was right. Under the "Aditional Art" section I found a name which made me, as a Color Dreams fan, scream "WOW!". The great gfx artist who to used to be at Color Dreams, Nina Bedner (now Nina Stanley), actually helped making the gfx for this game by the 3DO company, quite cool eh? Sorry I cannot give you a screenshot of the credits screen, since my tv-tuner card doesnt have a scart plug. But if you local videogame store has battletanx in their demobox, then go 'n check it out! (not just the credit screen, also the game cause it's acutally quite cool) :)
Nina Stanly did graphics for quite a few Color Dreams/Wisdom Tree games sych as Menace Beach, Bible Adventures, Spiritual Warfare and such.
Oh I almost forgot. I was looking through the Menace Beach sprites the other day, another Nina Bedner creation, and found something quite weird. The skate dude on a waterscooter, or whatever its called. As far as I know this isn't used anywhere in the game, so I wonder if it was lack of time which ment that the stage where this should be used wasn't made. Well I gotta ask Vance Kozik about this sometime.
Well that's all I had to say today, but expect a minor update on Sunday. The info above is not yet added to the Color Dreams page, but will be on sunday.
OH! you can use http://come.to/nesworld when you wanna visit NES WORLD. if you use this url you'll be sure to access NES WOLRD, even if we should move sometime.
