I dont remember the name in what XGF/ MoD called it back in the day, but it had to do with using sprites, buying Weapons and armor at the shop, and using those sprites to battle against each other...Man...Why cant I think of the name?

Well, I remember playing it with alot of my friends like Bulldog Tazz, Uzu, kid Buu...we would always talk about how much we were going to post here so we can buy better equipment...and so forth...

Well, we have a user Status...

Why not use it?

I remember before you took it off I had the best armor equipment...I was saving up for the mana blade as well....

Can you tell me the name everyone called it? And BRING IT BACK! That mess was fun!

Edit- After scamming through in the Help thread...It was the Battle Hack...please bring it back....:: cat-ears prop down while looking at the designers ::

How convinient, I was talking to Xeo about this yesterday...

See the thing is, you can only do so much with a battle hack. And I lost interest in making it, after about 4 different kinds. It just gets so boring. And I know for a fact that Xeo agrees with me. It's just been overdone.

I was originally going to make an adventure.php where you could visit towns and battle random monsters. But I didn't get enough input on it.

And now i've completly forgotten everything of the AcmlmBoard structure, so that will take a while to learn again if I do choose to do something.

I always thought the battle hack was boring and a waste of time. The actual system itself didn't interest me once it was implemented. I remeber back on A-US, we had items and such we could buy but they served no purpose. (However there were simbattle tournaments where you could win custome made items. Those were fun times.)

Activity will rise, i'm sure. But it seems like more of an incentive to spam. "Omg I need more money so I can get the masamune. Better create a random thread in Crazy Nonsense."

Making that stuff is the most boring stuff ever seriously.

Tried. Got bored in about an hour.

Even so, the battle hack isn't going to make up for the inactivity. Unless it is part of their common sense, you can get bored right away and wish you can make a better game then what anyone would make.

Trust me on this, the battle hack isn't a good idea. They aren't going to make up for the inactivity and they are going to make it very boring. Attack, heal, guard, and run away... Wow, what's so fun about that? 4 commands, and there isn't any animation. (not that we would need one. *coughFEisbettercough*)

Well, if anyone's been to Tuvai's, then you've probably seen the best battle hack out there. If we had something of that calibur, I think it would be interesting and somewhat active. But still, as entertaining as that add on there is, its still nothing that drives me to post there everyday.

However, despite all the negativity here, I do personally think it feels a little 'weird' not to have an item shop here, since in the past ... we almost always did. Even when we hardly had battle hacks. Along with all of the other stats on AB's, as pointless as they may be ... they were interesting in the past.

An idea I've had though (well I had a dream I knew PHP and made this) was a DnD Hack, incredibly advanced. People could create up to 3 characters, and there were several classes to choose which differed their stats and item selection (obviously just like most RPG's and DnD). Stats were generated by lucky dice rolls. Then people could get together with other members of the board with their characters and go through randomly made dungeons. Each person took their turns, moved, attacked monsters, found treasure, etc.

People could setup campaings also. Making up a script or plot, that people could read. Then they could pick out the dungeons, and maybe even go as far as being able to pick what monsters would show up, what treasures would, etc. Then be able to control towns afterwards and maybe even type in what NPC's would say while people explored the towns and bought items or whatnot. And some more stuff I can't remember.

But that was a dream. =

I really don't think having an Item shop or Battle hack is a "waste", but these days I don't think it really is required to have for a board to be successful, unlike only a few years ago.

It was just kind of "the thing", back when everyone had an AcmlmBoard.

The best ones I've seen were Ogre's, and Tuvai's.

The extremely basic ones never caught my interest though, like TEK Hacks. It was just too basic and linear to really get a kick out of.

But I don't blame Syntax for never finising this kind of work. A lot of it was simply because he just didn't get any feedback from people, and I'm sure I can speak for the both of us, its not always easy making things completely from your own ideas.

Well then how about we come up with an idea for ourselves? We have Talanted people here! Im sure if motivation is all thery need, you can count on me to BRING that motivation for something new!

All this board has is a post count....and the fact that we are a family (To most, I think we should all get along....). but thinking about alot of things...something needs to happen here thats going to get the newbs' eyes....

Perhaps alot of you stayed here when you were newbs BECAUSE of the battle hack, and then learn and understood each other as some sort of family! Now you guys think that its a waste because MAYBE, you guys think its old...but when a newb sees how to improve in posts, and see that we have some sort of hack....You know for a fact that hes GOING to stick with us! And learn from us...

And yet I agree to most that this could be a flop...but I also suggest we all pitch in and try something new! Like what Xeo did, I thought about making a D&D RP using a random dice roller...but unfortunately I couldent find one...( Stupid Dial up, Proxy on almost every site that I go to)

This board is all about posting...Lets improve on that...and make this board unique just busides a regular "Message board" and make it "Xeogaming Message Board"

I'm all for it, but the thing is ... Syntax has made polls, and brought up questions a lot in the past. Maybe as many times as I have asked for suggestions on the site, and we just really haven't gotten any feedback.

So I don't know ... maybe this is "Suggestion" season or something? It's worth a shot, but in the past nobody really cared to give any ideas, so the motivation was pretty much lost.

Actually, might I add, it is probably because we either felt that you necessary felt way different from us (hey, I gave YOU Galaxiga zip and you WON'T put up for the website?) or may be too lazy to put it up (EXCUSE ME, but where the hell is the Trachia 776 avatar? ) and/or the fact we need motivation from other to keep on striving to achieve to find a way to stop our laziness...

Sure, we are lazy, but still, it take time to get our motivation back. It make life easier if there was other to help us. Heck, there was this one game I dreamt the other night, I talked to Cairoi about it, and bam, motivation began there.

Even at this point, I STILL want to make that game. Right now, all I can do is make some screen view for the game.

Sounds an awful like my idea for an adventure.php...

I miss the old battle Hack...It may not have been much but it sure was fun...

But if anything just bring back the item shop and old Battle Hack.
