Post Twinsen's Adventure 2nd Release

http://www.twinadv.com/

Around late 2002 I shared with the MBN my ambition to create a commercial LBA website, one that a game like LBA deserves. I also shared my vision of an international site, one with the most up to date information and resources regarding LBA, and the creators. Today that vision is to be realized, both by myself, and by the many fans whom without, this site would not have been possible.

TwinAdv release 2 offers a number of improvements, and additions, namely:-
: - The site is translated into 13 languages (with only 7 ready for upload)
: - New fans page has been added. Now any passer by can see the many faces of LBA fans.
: - New e-mail from Frederick Raynal (sorry guys, no luck with TP screenshots)
: - New files section
: - Added LBA sections, now anyone passing by can find out what LBAs all about.
: - New FAQ section (still work in progress)
: - LBA3 petition is now 24 pages long! That has been updated so that the better worded petitions now appear randomly at the top.
: - Search function is now available
: - TwinAdv Crew is formed of 11 members, almost all of different nationalities!
: - And of course, a great new look, and design!

If you feel you could contribute to the site, either by translating it in your own language, or writing an article for it, please email us at [email address]

Many thanks to all the contributors for their hard work!

Also thanks go to Frederick Raynal, who kindly replied to my e-mail with some great news!

TwinAdv 2nd release launches 21:00 GMT Wednesday 24th of November.

Regards
Ahmad Ghourab

Although it's nice to be multi language and all, I don't really like websites that give me their Hebrew version by default.

But that's probably only me.

For now are updated in both sites. Don't know if ChaosFish will delete that from his site.

Just ChaosFish can decide this.


Edited:
Btw, if anyone have new suggestions for the site just tell me


Edited2:
morshem, Jesse gave an ideia about the translation/spelling mistakes. We will make an "Report Mistake" button to all pages, that way we can keep the site clean and with high quality.

Lenny: I appreciate that. If you think the translation is that bad, switch to the English page. The site uses cookies.

Mor: Sure you can join me with the Hebrew TwinAdv translation! Contact Alex.

About the fans fan site: yes, see this thread.

to alexfont or whoever is in charge of updating the website: you think you could add in this page a link to the "screenshot competition" thread? Cos there are several funny new screenshots there all the time!

And also, a link to my LBA FANART page?

pretty please to both

That could have been a good idea, but this section is for in-site downloads only

About the link in the file section, really don't know. I need to think.

For your page, not for now sorry, bacause we'll change that section. We will include the ChaosFish OpenDirectory that will have all fans sites.

So chances for a lba 3 release are even more futuristic? Rights problems, taking 4 years to work on a game...and more companies for Raynal. Lba 3 would definitely be nice to come out when I'm 50 and have lots of kids....

Even prodigy didn't take this long and they took 7 years!

The alternative text of each flag is the language's name in the language, y'know?
So why is French "French" instead of "Francais"? (with a funny C)
