    I kick ass. Also, I can probably get you folks in contact with kentaro. That requires me to get off my ass. That might be too much to ask. 
  • Most confusing thing trying to remember what you nicked way back when;

    lalalasa/Apollo got me into Myth TFL just as everyone migrated to Myth 2 which I bought straight away. I went by -Disco- on a shared TFL account which spawned lots of variants on the name when others played on the same. I switched to L o t u s without any thought and bunched up with the Smorgasbord that was the Swedish Meatballs as they started out, I think Thalandor coached my audition on S-Web BC, something that I had seen Apollo play for hours on end. Wow, the memories.

    My last PlayMyth.net login was goldfish and this was what prompted my final name change, probably deep into Silmarillion lore; Ar-Pharazon which was cut short to Ar in time.

    Really good to see so many familiar names, I'll see if I can return the favor with Apollo and get him here as well. Hi Zar!

  • lank, formerly known as lank.

    came to myth in the tfl days, but only really started doing community stuff when m2 arrived on the scene.

    once upon a time a member of midnight resistance (MiR), now an H'Pak member, though it's been a while since i've played any myth, thanks to life and all that. did mapmaking and hung out on the old vista fora and moved around with the community websites somewhat. used to hang out on udogshl a fair bit.

    now in my 30s and finishing off a phd in applied mathematics, so no serious gaming at the moment, but did go through a strong halo phase.

    i used to type all in lower case, as you see so far, but I've largely trained myself to write with "proper" capitalisation because it's annoying reminding myself when to to use which style. However, I think that the nickname here shall remain 'lank', all lower case. Just 'cause.

    Great to see so many familiar names. I want to keep my eye on this. A trip down memory lane, but something new at the same time. If I ever have the leisure... :D
  • Monkey, formerly known as 4 Butted Monkey (tfl)
    Age: almost 30

    Started in the beginning with tfl, played very steadily throughout b.net and mariusnet until 2004. Had a short Myth2 experience with MWC2k1 as a member of IronChef. We switched from tfl to sb for the summer, and couldn't field a team at the end to finish better than 11th. (Damn summer college and jobs!)

    Finished my mariusnet tfl as part of the clan Kamppur. The only active members I recall were Shaister, August and Oban. My final days were enjoying unranked play with udogs, PoRN, PS, Tank Clan and the associated other acts and individuals I can't remember.

    When I left in 04, it was for a job that I hated, to a job I didn't care to have, to a job I'm very happy with. (When strangers ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I'm retired, because I don't think it can get any better). So, I decided to come back in 2014 to find Mariusnet gone but Gate of Storms up (thank you punkuser) and the Udogs website still up (thank you wazza mouse).

    Most of my time is spent as a family man while working 48/hours a week but still find time for Myth. I'm very much looking forward to the future game and community.

    Previous experience:

    Downloaded the 32.5mb heavy Myth TFL demo on my 14400 modem on release. I still remember the anticipation when I was walking home with the retail version in my backpack. 

    Played in the order LoA in TFL, then joined Swedish Meatballs in Myth 2. Placed well in Myth World Cup 2000 ( #5/#6 ).

    Played Myth III while that was alive and well. Have occationally been visiting Mariusnet for TFL and Myth III.

     Been  hopelessly wishing that something would happen and that the Myth series would ressurect. DeadHold seems equally good!

    BTW. Hi Zaramis! A lot of years have passed since last time :)

    Previous Experience:

    I have played the Myth TFL and Myth II demo's when I found them attached to some Mac Magazines. Years later I bought the 'Green Berets' game at my local library, which was selling its old games. It came with Myth II and I got hooked to the gameplay. Unfortunately I did not have an connection to the internet at the time, but when my parents bought an iMac I was able to use some unsecured wifi networks and I got on Mariusnet. This was in the final days of playmyth and unfortunately it was extremely difficult to find a game at Mariusnet, yet I could not forget the game. After everyone made the transition to Mariusnet I started a clan with some people I liked to play with and called it Until Last Man Stands, had some fun time while I was capping in multiple tournaments (MWC, TWS) despite my horribly laggy connection. When I finally got a 'real' internet connection myth was dying, but I couldn't give up the game - I simply love the gameplay.

    p.s. If any of the old ULMS players reads this, or anyone who ever played under the ULMS banner in a tournament for that matter, send me a message! Would love to hear from you folks ;)
  • Not bad Rukia, you seem to know a bit about Myth history lol.

    I had forgotten about Stickler until you brought that up....Sir. I would have rather forgotten that altogether.

  • Monkey,
    Sometimes , having a good memory is a curse.Not to mention thousands of screenshots of conversations  |:)
    I ahve a lot of stuff backed up.. just not sure where.
    I remember people like  Rilak and Nightblade from Lords of Destruction, Ruprect from The Four Horsemen, Pepaa and Banana Man , Orders like 5:01 , Knights of Eblis  , JaG, Wings of Destruction, Bot, AoD etc etc.People like Mugoogio, Thalander (real one) , Loser ,Mercy,Kith Kanaan, Sartan, Balic,El Caballo Loco,Angel, Dark Angel, Odin, Malkavian,David Eddings Order , The Fnords,HoL, AmotT,....days of past glory should never be lost :) .I will have to collect all my old harddrives together and creat a huge Myth archive of tens of thousands of games, I played and you will remeber as well... Life is but a circle and Donne's Compass....
  • If I remember correctly, I used DuckHunter as my nickname on Myth TFL.  
    Shortly after I started playing with Inferno and Blue and was invited to join Evil Inc. -E.I.- 
    I played online a lot through Myth 2.  

    Like many here, Myth was one of my all time favorite games.  It was very satisfying after a major battle to pan the camera across the field to view the carnage.  My brother sent me a link to this site last week and when I heard the "Flag Captured" voice in the videos I was brought back to so many great memories. 

    I'm excited to see what changes Deadhold brings and all the awesome stuff that I hope remains from the days of Myth.
  • I've hung around Myth since 1998, when a buddy showed me TFL while we were commuting to work on a train.  I got heavily into mapmaking for Myth 2, then was the driving force behind the initial Myth 2 updates to get them working on modern operating systems and (with varying degrees of success) add improvements to the game.  From 2003 onwards was part of Project Magma and uDogs, but around 2008 I pretty much said goodbye to Myth and went on to other things. 

    Great to see so many familiar faces here :)
  • Oh my god! Luxus! And Lotus! 

    It's been so long. I can honestly say that I never thought I'd talk to essentially anyone from Sm again, maybe except Fire since we have met many times in RL..

    Pretty crazy. I am dying from nostalgia here! So good to see you in the DH community. :)

    Previous Experience: 
    My older brother played Myth TFL and Myth 2 when their demos were released on the Mac Addict disks, and played through Bungie.net until the end. He later played on PlayMyth.net until it died. Later on after finding Mariusnet, I played a little myself. It wasn't until early 2009 when I really jumped aboard, playing a lot more, and trying my hand at creating plugins.

    I made Deadfall, a coop zombie survival plugin for Myth 2, an unfinished Tower Defense Level, an unfinished Diablo style coop RPG level with random drops and such, a long WIP Myth HD override for all of the units in Myth 1 and 2. Finally, what most people remember me for, is the detail texture pack for Myth 2, which covers nearly 400 maps.

    Been riding the Deadhold train since the first screens showed up, will ride it all the way into the final station. Can't wait.

  • my name is James King, i am friends with CD0UG i have played myth with him over the past year or so and its a great game, unfortunately very small community left, excited to play dead hold as it looks very promising
  • hello my name is ben, i have never played myth before but i seen this game on youtube and it looks very intresting!
  • Hi!

    I was really excited to stumble across Deadhold in a Reddit post whilst looking for any glimmer of hope of 'Myth 4' on Google. Myth II: Soulblighter was the first ever game I played online, and I seriously miss it. I was only 12 at the time when it came out and I remember being heartbroken when the server got shut down. Unfortunately I was too young to really use my brain and make the most of what the community built using 3rd party methods of still playing. I was a massive fan of the WW2 Recon plugin and played that a lot. Found some videos with some familiar names the other week and brought back some good memories!

    Looking forward to seeing how the game develops, as it is already looking very promising!

    Previous Experience:
    Saw Guavamoment's let's play of myth 3 and was fascinated. I liked how the combat worked in myth compared to other "strategy" games. The fact that you could rename units and laugh as the dwarf "Urist McSplodey" threw a bomb at the wrong time. I dabble in multiplayer, but it didn't have the same feel. 

    The only game design experience I have is a few old skulltag mods and maps that are floating around the web. Occasionally goofing around with the free unreal engine but nothing ever came from that.

    Myth Related:
    Long time Bungie Marathon fan on my family’s old 68K Performa as a kid. Fired up the Myth: TFL demo from an old MacWorld demo disc when I was a teen, and loved the tactics, the mood, the physics, everything. At the time my old PowerBook 1400c had to run Myth using the very lowest settings, and slowed down in big battles. I used to pause the game and hit F5 to see how lovely it looked with better textures, and zoom in and look around at all the beautiful frozen physics stuff. Later I got a Umax mac clone with a Rage 128 card and couldn’t believe how awesome Myth looked and ran.

    I played the single player in Myth and Myth II over and over, though I confess I was never very good. I loved the story, the mood, the whole feel of the world. I loved the peace and mystery on many maps before all heck broke loose. I loved the war-weary tone of the warrior’s narration introducing each new map, and the feeling of being just a small part of big events, a vanguard on the edge of massive battles.

    I was just thinking the other day that we need a new small-unit-focused tactical game. Total War is too big and impersonal for me. I want to watch my battle-hardened group of outnumbered warriors slog through mud or pace carefully through sunny glades with the weight of the world on their shoulders. I want battles where an individual fighter can decide the outcome, battles where chaos and fluidity are the norm, where rushing to form a desperate line or outmaneuver an overcommitted opponent is the focus rather than cold rock/paper/scissors decisions.

    Needless to say, I’m absolutely ecstatic about discovering Deadhold.

    I was only briefly active online in Blue&Grey circa 2004 or so. I’m quite interested in Deadhold’s multiplayer, but my real engagement with the game will probably be through solo/coop play. I hope Deadhold has a great, moody story!
  • Souly : The only South African that still playe's Myth.

    Played Myth since 1997 but back in those day's online gaming in South Africa was still new.
    Joined the online Myth community around 2004 and got hooked on making mods.

    I make new Myth units. (3d models, animations and effects )

    I did take part in some of the Myth World Cups but i was more of a coop player.

    Looking forward to play this game!!!  ...and make mods for it : >

    I started playing Myth: TFL when I got a demo for it in a magazine back in 1997. I loved the game and have been playing both Myth I and II with friends off and on over the years thanks to the hard work of the guys at Project Magma and the rest of the community. I'm a nobody in the community, I don't even remember what handle I used back in the day when I did play online.

    I'm very excited to have found Deadhold and look forward to playing it in the future.

    I found this forum by accident but really support your attempts to make Myth 4, and just hope Renwood/Oogabooga don't sue you for copyright infringement. Happy to help in any way I can but I'm on a mac so I'm not sure how I'll be doing that. Thanks for having me.
  • Hey All!

    Played a hell of a lot of Myth II in highschool.

    Been waiting on a remake or a similar game ever since.   I about had a heart attack when I found DeadHold   Thank you so much.

    Myth II player since late 90s, switched to linux from win98 in 2000 and played the Loki port of Myth II (still have it). Loki version went out of sync so stopped playing on linux. Played some 1.4/1.5 on Mac round 2003/4 ish? When 1.7.2 was released for Linux I installed and played online for a while, did some minor 1.8 linux testing, then steam for Linux was released and I got distracted. Looking forward to beta testing on SteamOS (nvidia proprietary) and Ubuntu (nvidia proprietary, intel).
