He actually came back (twice, I believe) proclaiming how we were ignorant and he held the true secret of LBA.

Which, apparently, was PCP.

I'm glad we now have tons of LBA tools to actually verify all game files to check that, indeed, does not exist any Pipe Trick in the game.

I'm pretty sure anyone with common sense didn't need any such diagnostics to recognize that the pipe trick was a fabrication, but yes, I suppose it's good to know.

Thanks for reviving this, I'm experiencing so much nostalgia right now.

My oldest attachment: Fred's game POPCORN (2001)
Another old attachment: me saying "El Muerte" (2001)
Flamingo Squadron (2002)
My most popular attachment: a screenshot of some bug. Just look at that desktop. 800x600, dial up connection, IE5, Miranda ICQ... those were the days (2002)
Wrestlefest 2k2 (Che Guevara? Wut? And good to see Hitoshi, I miss that guy)
Old linux desktop (I think it looks cool in a retro way) (2003)
Pimp Twinsen (2004)
iQuetch (2006)

EDIT: I just noticed I've posted some of these before ITT. I'm such an old man! Well, who cares.

Nice finds, Medur.

Genuinely lol'd at pimp Twinsen, and had some memories awakened upon seeing your win98 desktop. Good ol'd days indeed.

My first attachments are pretty dull, just a screenshot mockup of what lba would look like on the gba:

I was speculated it could be done pretty easily based on the then state-of-the-art Tony Hawks gba game.(which was also isometrix tiles+3d ontop)

A bit later I did something much better though, the rarely seen Ultimate Avatar:

Oh, I never noticed that page in usercp.
Neither was I aware that this attachment had so much success (1175 hits):

This encourages me to pursue my current adventure game platform project.

Actually it's not LBA2, but LBA Online. Notice the Ogre logo, and the absence of characters, and maybe a few differences/imperfections compared to the original game graphics. This was the result of long hours deciphering the island file format.

That fanart is very cute, never seen LBA characters portrayed like this before. Neat.
