It is now possible to add comments, using your Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, or other credentials

Sunday, September 25th, 2011 by Captain

After getting hacked once again it was time to upgrade this old installation. You won’t notice many changes from the outside, but it’s the inside that counts (at least that’s what my mom told me). One difference though is that we’ve reopened comments with the Disqus comment system, which will enable you to comment on articles using your Twitter, Facebook, etc. account instead of having to register yet another account at some blog.

Many new game tools at the Tools Blog

Sunday, July 31st, 2011 by Mr.Mouse

1logo.jpgThis month I started to post the tools created by users of the Game Research Forum at the Tools Blog of the same community. Although any registered member of the Forum can post it, hardly anyone does. So I will do it when I have the time. Check out the latest posts: http://forum.xentax.com/blog

Lord of Midnight – Full game stats

Thursday, April 7th, 2011 by Mr.Mouse

victory.pngYesterday I completed a game of Lords of Midnight, using my Lomwrapper. For the second time in my history, and 20 years since the first. Check here for the charts that I created using the logs from Lomwrapper after my win.

MultiEx Commander 4.5.0 RC1A is out!

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011 by Mr.Mouse

1logo.jpgI’ve completed MultiEx Commander 4.5 now featuring EasyMod! With EasyMod you can create stand-alone mods of the game you alter. If they are supported using MexScript for importation, this will work. Efforts will continue to define stuff that plugins will need to do to support EasyMod as well. But for now, there’s a number of additional important changes to the program you might be interested in. See the readme.txt. To see what the EasyMod is about, view my first tutorial on YouTube. I will complete more in time, and perhaps the community can create some as well.

Get a glimpse of MexCom 4.5

MultiEx Commander 4.5 is imminent. Why not read the manual to see what it is about?

Game File Format Central is back!

Sunday, December 5th, 2010 by Mr.Mouse

wikibackonline.jpgAfter some months, I’ve finally gotten round to recovering Game File Format Central after a blatant attack using some exploit that destroyed our rotating backup. Because our host could not recover it, we had to dig deep to see if we got a backup somewhere. We found one, and it was old. But still, there’s a lot of information in there, so let’s just start from there again!
