10 Years in 72dpiarmy and Memories
« 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)

Times today are just as bad what with the video game market being made up of 80% first person shooters that are 80% brown and 20% black and 100% bloom.

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.
