    Dusting self off

    Hi there. Remember me? That's okay, I wouldn't remember myself either, especially given how little I posted for the last couple of years before deciding to stop showing up here altogether.

    Decided to give Thief and System Shock a whirl again not long ago. Okay, I lie - I decided to do that over a year ago, what happened two weeks ago was that I finally got to doing it. Started Thief Gold, got annoyed by the @$%^%!@%! zombies in the Bonehoard and switched to SS2, got back to Thief last weekend. Amazing how little those games have aged... They are all freaking amazing and with high-resolution textures (as well as other visual mods and cleaned-up audio, that said it's the textures that make the largest difference to me), stand up well on the audiovisual side as well. I just wish someone would tell the author of the SS2 model mod that female breasts are not floatation devices Anyway, I won't even mention NewDark because a) I was still here when the first versions came out, and b) it still blows my mind that someone could pull THAT kind of a mod off.

    What also blows my mind is how active this community still is, after around 20 years (correction: I've just checked and it is EXACTLY 20 years - whoa) since the release of Thief: The Dark Project. NewDark, SS2 community patch, high-resolution texture packs for the three Dark Engine games - still under active development! And by much the same people, too. Hell, even a glance at the front page of CommChat shows a lot of very, very familiar names. Makes me feel kind of guilty for having bailed out on you guys.

    No idea where I'm going with all this. I'd better stop now.

    I remember you because your name always reminded me of Marieke.

    Hey, it's Medlar the guardian of Cornish shore line! Nah, the PC is nice and safe behind its shielded inlet ports. Besides, I could swear that the carpet at my place absorbs dust. Or more likely, will continue to absorb dust until some arbitrary point in time having passed which it will release all of it upon slightest disturbance.

    Marecki! I remember you.

    And TNT! Good to hear from you again! It's been ages since I've seen either of you. Although that's probably my fault since I'm not around much anymore. :P

    Enchantermon!! Another partner in crime! Good to hear from you too. I'm never around here anymore actually, the only reason I knew that Marecki posted was because Nameless Voice gave me a heads up.

    I remember you Marecki. You were about when I first came here. Unfortunately you did nothing I could blackmail you with.
