Test Site Preview: Twitterblox!

July 24, 2009 at 9:21 pm | Posted in News | 2 Comments

TestServer1Alright, this update seems to be all about refurbishing the “My ROBLOX” page. Allow me to explain.

Home Page

(See image on the top) This will show you your avatar, your money, a little bar where you can say what you are doing right now, receive news of your best friends (look further for details), and if your best friends are online or not. The ? is a bug in the test server, it shouldn’t happend on the real game, well, I hope. The bottom image displays it when there is best friends selected.

TestServer5Account is the standard “edit profile” from the original site. No changes.

Profile

Displays the original “My ROBLOX” page. It will this time, however, show your current activity AND what groups you are in. > Also note that the player’s name is outside the blue box. <

TestServer2TestServer6Friends

Oh boy. In this part, they added “Best Friends”. Basically, you can nominate up to ten best friends (Ten? I SMELL MONEY IN THIS.), and also, once you’ve done that, you receive on your Home Page all their updates, if they are online or not.

TestServer3Characters, Money, Abassador and Advertizing remain the same. However, Non-BC go to your ranting tanks…

Groups

That’s right, groups. Not much can be explained, since it’s BC Only. Oh wait, I AM in BC. However, Test Server dosn’t allow to create for now. I guess it will have a similar thing with Best Friends.

This seems good. However, why don’t they focus on some gameplay, like the physics that badly need it, for example? 😉

Download Page – Updated!

June 27, 2009 at 6:43 pm | Posted in Roblox Direct News | Leave a comment

What’s new!

  • Added “2D Sword Fight – Mission Street”
  • Added “2D Sword Fight – Latest”
  • Added “Portal Zone”

Basically, 2D Sword Fight has been given all away. All the stages that were made were given. Portal Zone is a copy of VALVe’s game Portal. (Where comes the “cake is a lie”) It dosn’t work correctly in the newest version of ROBLOX, however. Neverless, still a great piece of work… not complete. ^^’

Head over the download section to access the downloads!

Response to Briguy’s ROBLOX. (Fansites are Dead)

June 27, 2009 at 10:53 am | Posted in Roblox Direct News | 3 Comments

View the post I am repliying to: http://briguysroblox.wordpress.com/2009/06/26/roblox-fan-sites-are-dead/

I’d agree with that. Also, another reason why the blogs don’t post anymore is the fact that the only news that’s up is the fact there’s only new hats. For the past two months, the game was only about new items. (Such as Faces, Hats, and Gear). A contest popped out in the middle of it, but wasn’t very appreciated. (No Cash Prize! Seriously! For all that crazy work!) A maximum from getting Top 10 is getting more Youtube Subscribers, but who cares, though?

A faily odd thing is that they still maintain the Fan Site Develloping Kit, yet they have this “no offsite rule”. They conflict each other right? Yet, both made by the admins.

Because of the fact I haz crisis, like everyone, I have difficulties posting in the end of school year. Now it’s the end, I can re-post. The problem is, what is there to post? Interviews are abused, almost every known player has been interviewed, news is too common the past two months, all based on Catalog Releases, and of course, there’s no user activity to our site.

However, I was thinking ’bout this the time the Roblog vanished. At the time, you planned for us to do a Newspaper, so that the Admins would feature. In it, would feature the link to our blogs. It never saw the light of day, though. My idea was to fusion the four major blogs into one,  because competition dosn’t help. (ESPCIALLY with no income of visitors.) Because of this, we might post faster, fusion ALL the visitors into ONE site.

The result of this could be something like a site called TSSZ News. (See it.) I was really amazed at the speed of posting, so fast they would even do “breaking news”.

Another idea I though of (not so great, though. Or maybe better?) is that we organize a monthly Fan Site Conference. We could always ask permission to the admins. The conference would be an “award” like place, every month, nominees would be elected to then have the “best of” site. Admins would then post in the results on the Roblog, under the form of a TRAVELOGUE! (I know! We need thoses BADLY!) If this, however, make through, fansites, may still get traffic.

Let’s hope the sites can still live. Roblox News and The Roblox Times are dead from a long time. We are zombies, though, waitin’ for a rocket to hit us so we can respawn. ’nuff said.

PS: I would also blame my birthday coming soon, and the fact I’m building Mt. Zeta, for the GRSH.

One Robux for Six Tickets – End of a Crisis?

May 27, 2009 at 3:38 pm | Posted in Charts / Buisness News, Quick News | 8 Comments

Today, a slight change in the marketplace makes that for one robux you get six tickets, just yesterday and the past week we were at one robux for seven tickets. Is this the announcement of the end of the Trade Currency crisis?

On other news, still writing that review. You know, the one I promised. Oh, and my.. tummy… hurts badly… Urgh… (off-topic…)

Uberubert returns, showcases his next work.

May 22, 2009 at 4:35 pm | Posted in Quick News | 4 Comments

Just two days ago, scripting legend uberubert came back from the dead. (Litterally). The reason, was to update quickly his Grow-A-Brick place, with a very minor update. However, what we are going to talk about, is the blog where he showcases his next major(?) work: http://uberubertsblog.blogspot.com/

However, it’s interresting to know what will “uber do next”. For information, uberubert was the original creator of all theses tycoons games. If he never made thoses and never let it un-copy-locked, then there wouldn’t be so many spammy tycoon games. Playing the original games are way more fun than playing games copied from the original author, and not giving a credit to the original author. Anyway, that concludes on this.

The Twin Updates

May 7, 2009 at 6:12 am | Posted in News | 5 Comments

Hey.
There have been a total of TWO major updates. And you know what’s the best part? 3/4 of them are dedicated to builders. =) (Even the Slate and Truss update was mostly for builders!).

Now, I did not have the time to “try it out”. However, the Roblox Direct will post shortly (MAXIMUM one day…) a review of the updates. Expect a few more posts.

Avoiding the Horrible Games: Preview Pictures

May 2, 2009 at 10:10 am | Posted in Tips, Tricks and Help | 6 Comments

Introduction

Hello, and welcome to the first of a serie of mini guides of “Avoiding the Horrible Games”. Theses guides will be used to make you know what you should visit, and what you should not visit. In this first part, we tell you all about the Preview Pictures of the places, how to know what’s good, what’s not good, and how to learn to immediatly reconize the worse of the bunch. Are you guys ready? If so, read on!

Images

This is a very tricky part. When browsing the Games page, you will most likely see previews with images that come straight from… something else.

Take for example the game “Second Life”, I saw recently on the Games page, made by the Guy-Everyone-Hates-Even-Though-The-Haters-Are-Stupid-Enought-To-Still-Visit-His-Places-And-They-Hate-Him-OMG-LOL. We have a picture that’s comes straight from the game called Second Life.

It might look like an actual screenshot, but its not! Look at the fuzzyness of the picture!

It might look like an actual screenshot, but it's not! Look at the fuzzyness of the picture!

Now, the game’s image promises you with a game that’s almost like Second Life. Now, this is where you use your Brain. If you think a bit more, you would say either:

  • This game would have been featured moons ago if it was good.
  • Roblox removed meshes. Besides, there are no meshes that are ANYTHING related to this.
  • It is impossible to build all this. The computer would go in flames.

Reading the description might also help you uncover if the game is bad, or not. Let’s check out the description of the place:

Welcome Build a House a store or Go shoping for Swords to kill people with Shop Trees Buy homes Buildings etc like Office buildings drive a car go to Prison Buy the vip to get more wepons and Guns And even Free money Vip at [Hidden Content to Avoid Profit. =) ] This is not bad game just build a house and go and shop or Drive Around or get money to buy Swords!

  • General Spelling: Normally, even if you can’t spell correctly, you can still build good stuff. (Are92…) However, it’s mostly the case that a bad speller also can’t build correctly. It’s logic: when your dumb, your dumb for mostly everything (most of the time…).
  • Go shoping for Swords to kill people with Shop Trees: Look at Wikipedia, do some research! If you search enough, you’ll find out that you don’t go shopping for swords to kill people with SHOP TREES. I really laughed hard at that. SHOP TREES.
  • the vip to get more wepons and Guns And even Free money Vip at [Hidden Content to Avoid Profit. =) ]: Okay… Free Money if you buy VIP? You really supposed to earn it, in Second Life, you don’t get free virtual money by buying something in real life. Wikipedia again for confirmation…….. Unless he’s talking by “Hacking”.
  • is not bad game: When they say that, they are lying 99% of the time. Add one percent because of the spelling and grammar. Now your at 100. Yay.

HARDER: Roblox Acting

Use your brains. This is toughther than you think.

Use your brains. This is toughther than you think.

This just had to come. Roblox Acting. Roblox Acting is a technique used to place Robloxians in a pose to be on the Preview Picture. The hardest thing is to uncover without visiting.

Northern Robloxian Speedway *FINISHED* V1.1.0.3 is a game by Cessnaporsche01 and has a cool looking pose picture. However, deepending of the situation of the pose, you can know immeadiatly if good or no good:

  • Is the pose related to the place? (Yes in this case, because it’s a racing game.)
  • Is the scenery detailed? (Yes in this case.)
  • Does it situate in the real place? (Yes here.)
  • Can you perform this in the game? Almost. But never yes. (Almost here, fully minus the smoke.)

And there. With answering thoses questions, you will know that this game is a good one.

Ambassador Program: Paradox of Fail

April 23, 2009 at 7:16 am | Posted in Thought | 10 Comments

Hi again.
The ambassador program, I was studiying this for a good amount of time. However, I can tell that the program is an absolute fail.

First of all, this encourages spam. Real, Bad, and Horrible. That’s the spam. You might think this can’t be so bad. It IS.
– Popular blogs get hit hard… with Spam comments. Even Askimet Spam Protect reconizes the spam!
– Some popular forums (most of them, actually), do not tolerate Advertising, even in the signatures. The player of Roblox will advertize for that badge. He will get banned and his sig deleted.

2nd, there is no way an intelligent person would click that link. No way. What does this give? More noobs.
If they wanted to attract more, THIS is what they should say:
“ROBLOX: A Free Building Game with Physics. Create your world. Create your Blox.”
I mean. That is SO more attractive than that cheesy line they put. But you know what’s the worse? If you click the “check out what I have been building lately!” part (I saw the Destination link.), the user will get nothing. Nothing. Yes, NOTHING. Also, more people want to check the player’s creation first before playing the game. Everyone knows that. And the user won’t get the 2 tixs they wanted.

This part, concerns more the Fansite Kit. You remember the blogroll? You remember when they deleted it? It was for this “COPPA” thing. So it was, blogs weren’t appreciated by Roblox anymore…
…but now? THEY ARE ENCOURAGING BLOGS! And they still have this thing with COPPA. Eventually, they’ll go feature more blogs and leave the blogs that started it all, into dust. At least, take our site as examples for the Kit. (Odd, you guys don’t recommend WordPress in your Fansite Kit…).

Last thing, the present. Look in the recently updated hats. In order to get it, you gotta “POST AS MANY LINKS BY FRIDAY!!!!!!!”.



…No way. I am disgusted. This… is EXACTLY this in “another” way:
” POST THIS ON 83 HATS, 2 DECALS, AND 7 SHIRTS TO GET 999999999999 TIXS AND 777777777 ROBUX! TELAMON TOULD ME IT’S TRUE!!!!!!!;;;;!!!! ”
