Title: 10 Years in 72dpiarmy and Memories
Post by: Ruukasu2005 on September 15, 2016, 12:51:07 PM
It's hard to believe today, 10 years ago, I joined 72dpiarmy. Here are some that I remember from my first 10 years:

1. My first suggestion: Make Super Mario War easier to download for those struggling with dial-up (by dividing files into categorized portions)
2. "Ban Jarviar" signatures all over the forum
3. Avatar contest
4. Starting my gallery here
5. Shenanigans with Link901, MC Jimmy, Gadouken, Chiisu, etc.
6. Hosting SMW Skinpak Contest
7. Florian's passing (many of you can relate, I'm sure)

For those who stayed around for about a decade, if you like, share your memories here! ^_^

there just wasnt anything to sustain a community tbh

with active development ending and all the main devs just disappearing (along with flo's suicide) everyone just kinda went off to do their own things

most people moved on to skype so they could goof off without dealing with forum rules, a few still stick around

someone is trying to hack together network multiplayer but unless we get a popularity boost once its fully working our community is gonna remain stagnant

it was on the downturn after florian died iirc; nothing was gonna save it after that

now it's just not relevant anymore, but the game never really felt like it was

that being said, i lowkey searched my name to cringe at my old posts, and apparently there's a fangame of 72dpi with me as a boss??? someone give me a download what the heck

I remember a hack of Super Mario Bros. 2 which did that if that's what you're referring to: http://www.mediafire.com/file/5i9u616e5p1rggm/72dpi_Subcon_%28SMB2_Hack%29.ips
(how do i still have this thing)

Haha, skype, you're a funny man.

Also, I don't really have any memories since 70% of the stuff that happened did so before I had even joined. All I really remember is spicy memes everywhere followed by over half a dozen years of dead silence.

I guess if it means anything, I always kept a ZIP file of the latest Super Mario War and my old mod SMWarld this entire time in case I ever feel the need/nostalgia to play it (which I have a couple times). Still a fun and very solid fan game, I'm surprised it didn't pick up more. I think I agree Florian's death definitely had to do with it. Hell, I'm surprised Zelda Classic still has an active forum. Gaming has come so very far in the last ten years I'm surprised anyone has time for the massive amount of content available between PC, Playstation, Xbox, and Switch/Wii U/Wii/3DS/DS.
