Hey! I just found this website and had a major nostalgia blast. I haven't logged in here in 17 or 18 years. I actually managed to guess my old password (the e-mail address I used back then is long dead). I guess the forums got rebooted or something? I don't have any posts, but I know I communicated with users here when I was a kid.

One really weird thing I noticed: For some reason, this old avatar I made (a self portrait based on a Mega Man 7 sprite) is one of the pre-set avatars that anyone can choose for their profile! I wonder how that happened. I don't think I was a moderator or anything, so I'm not sure why my avatar got special treatment. Would love to hear the story there if anyone knows it.

Hope this doesn't come off as spam, I just had to reach out after finding this old profile. I guess I was 15 years old when I logged in here last. Now I'm 33 and have two kids. I'm sure nobody remembers me, as I apparently never even uploaded a game as was probably common for kids here back then, I had many prototypes but didn't really finish anything! (I have made lots of small indie hobby games in later years though.)

However, I do know that I finished at least one game, because I submitted it as a school project. I actually have the CCA file (Corel Click & Create?) but it'd be fun to see if I can package that as an EXE somehow and upload it. My first TDC release, 17 years late! (Edit: OK, I guess I can't do that with the free version of Clickteam Fusion, so I'd have to buy it...)

Take care.

Welcome back, Spug - I hope you'll stick around. I don't know why your avatar is listed at https://create-games.com/viewavatars.asp but possibilities include (1) you had problems hosting your avatar so asked for help and it was added to the avatar list so you could use it, or (2) someone added it as a test and then forgot to remove it. I think it was Circy's avatar for a time back in 2004, so that could have had something to do with it. I can ask Clubsoft to remove it if you want.

Feel free to post your old game - .CCA could be Click & Create or Multimedia Fusion 1.5 or earlier. If you have send me the .cca then I can compile it for you. As I note at https://create-games.com/article.asp?id=2327 for modern games it is ideal to disable "Change Resolution Mode", to allow users to switch to/from full screen, etc.

If you want a nostalgia trip, I've made a lot of old Klik games available via https://kliktopia.org/ including classics like That Night Before. You can also get a selection of games in in TDC's Klik Museum: http://www.create-games.com/museum.asp?tag=museum

Do you have any old games of others that you downloaded from The Daily Click etc back in the day which you could contribute to the Kliktopia archives?

Oh, you don't need to remove the avatar, I just found it really strange that it was listed there!

Thanks for offering to compile the game! I went ahead and emailed you the CCA file. I think it was made with The Games Factory, but I was able to open it in the Clickteam Fusion Free Edition (I just couldn't do anything with it, nt even run it) so I guess it should work. It's nothing big, basically a 4-day jam game I made with some school buddies I haven't talked to in a decade, but it'd be fun to be able to play it.

Thanks for the links. I definitely remember That Night Before, and even seem to have written a review of it back then. I also remember several other games, like Freddie Trims a Tree and Eggit. I seem to remember vibrant Mega Man and South Park fan game scenes, but I guess most of those games are lost to time and copyright infringement, hehe. I doubt I have any of them, but I'll take an extra look on my old hard drives to see if I have anything to contribute, although I don't think so. I'll definitely try to stick around and play some games (and who knows, maybe one day I'll buy Clickteam Fusion and try my hand at something again...)
