MBN year's review 2007

January 7th
  • As the year starts, a new era of LBA modification begins. LBArchitect and LBA Story Coder can now cooperate to allow an easy editing of scenes. There's only a few left that you'll need to create your own version of LBA 1!
March 21stApril 1stMay 31st
June 26thJuly 3rd
August 6thAugust 18thSeptember 29thOctober 8thOctober 20thDecember 10th
  • After Lightwing stepped down, Kitarii (previously Ricochet) and Jasiek become democratically elected the MBN's new super moderators.
December 20thDecember 25th
  • The Roofles Den is now available for discussion about homosexuality, religion and other injuries. (Found that offensive? Don't opt in!)
December 27thWhat the year did not bring
  • While the year was still quite active, many promised releases of LBA fan projects got delayed and delayed. The latest release of the platformer game Twinsen dates over a year back, the LBA Prequel's demo didn't come yet and the LBA: The Great Rebellion project has similar problems. When #lba titles "2008 will be the year of LBA", it's not because LBA 3 draws nearer (development starts 2009 in the best case). Watch out what the LBA community itself has to offer you next year!

Nice list, but you forgot Poland.
And the Roofles Den.

Indeed Alex
I think we should make a list with all our hopes for 2008 and then can see what has been done at the end again.

I think you mean "humour me", or I didn't understand what you meant by "humble me".

I was trying to say that I didn't think want to imply with my post that it should be on the front page, but the decision should be El's. Thus I'm calling myself "humble". ?

No. But possibly LBA: The Great Rebellion or LBA Prequel.
