Really shocked and saddened to hear this news. Although I never knew him personally, through his postings he seemed happy and full of life. I qualified as a doctor a few years back and giving bad news is always difficult but it pales in comparison to what the patient and family is going through. My thoughts are with you Atresica

Incredibly saddened to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Atre. I admit to not knowing DF beyond the exchanges we had here on the MBN. However, it has always been clear that his love for LBA and his tremendous personality were a part of what made this place so special for all of us. He was the cornerstone of our community.

Thank you for sharing his final thoughts with us. Darkflame will be truly missed. I am so sorry for your loss.

I agree with Polaris... Wow... Seriously, no words...

This is all the more of a reason for Fred to create LBA3. Come on, Fred, step up your game! Though there are chances of it not coming, we need it anyways. It is very unfortunate that Tom will never be able to experience it. Though we still have time to experience it ourselves - if it happens. Tom hopes for the best of us.

Please don't think of this the wrong way, but what led Didier and Philip to know about Tom? Was he one of the very first members to join the MBN? Does anyone know if the initial LBA team at Adeline created this site? If not, I want to know now specifically whom started the MBN. For some reason it never really occurred to me.

I cannot wait to hear the LBA theme on November 1st. Will it be on Youtube?

Ah no, El muerte created this forum.
Before that we were all on insidetheweb forums. There were 3 boards, one by silferfish, one by me and one by an unknown guy. Atre and lightwing and el muerte where there more or less before me I think, I kinda forgot as this was like 1997/1998.

I think darkflame came a bit later. To be honest I forgot, he was on insidetheweb too right?

Back in 1999 i found out adeline software was bought by sega and now called no cliche and started emailing fred regulary. We all started doing that so it's no suprise the guys know the community.

Lightwing, fckman, those are some lovely messages! Thanks for passing them through.

As far as I know DF was for a brief moment on insidetheweb, just before we moved over to some other places.
Gha, silly man, I used to be the bestest fan ever. Almost as if you need to keep being active ;-)

Just came back to wish you the best Atre. Very sad to read about DF's passing.. Hope you're doing well through all this.

I've never had the chance to meet DF personally, but I remember him as a very active member of the community. I remember how he would misspell some words from time to time, leaving funny sentences behind. To this day, whenever I read or hear the word 'similar' , I always think to myself 'they're saying it wrong, it's silimar', as that is one of those words I remember him misspelling. Funny how he's still influencing me in such a silly way.

DF will be missed.. The best of luck to you Atre. My thoughts are with you.

Atresica's first post ever was: "LBA3 better be getting made, otherwise I'm gonna see god and it ain't gonna be Sendell."

To everything there's a season! We had a lot of good times.

I'm sorry, are you implying I changed my mind about this utmost important matter? :P

Assassin, Thanks for the words.
It was always how cute he was so persistent in this. Much like how he never learned where apostrophes go in a word!

I just notice after MrQuetch mentioned it in another thread and it's is still really hard for to believe me that Darkflame is no longer between us. For me after all this years he was really integral part of this forum. Atresica I'm really sorry for your loss.

Didnt know what to say when i learned about this. And still dunno. Hope you and yours are doing well Bertine. Heh, i recall you guys quoting the You Dont Exist thing in yer web reviews -bit too fitting now- but yeh.. without getting too sentimental seems evident DF touched and inspired many. And the world could use more of that not less, meh.

Still miss you Darkf.

It's been a year, and for all its ups and downs, one thing is certain: this year would have been a better one with you in it.

I'm late, but this is sad to hear.

I didn't know Darkflame well, of course. But I always held him in high regard and had pleasant dealings with him. He was a beacon of this community, and his loss is a loss to all of us, even strangers like me. Rest in peace.
