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? 😉

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.

Fansite Devellopement Kit proven GUILTY of unoriginality!

April 22, 2009 at 7:07 am | Posted in News | 5 Comments
unoriginal

Click the Image for details.

As of today, the ROBLOX team released a Fansite Developement Kit. But, behind this developement kit, lies a big scam of unoriginality. As of today, I’ll shall explain of this.

The image is the full thing. We did not edit this, nor did we download from another site. The scam:

The title of the file called “Roblox Fansite Kit, is “- StarCraft II Fan Site Kit -“. Another lack of unoriginality is the file “Roblox Fact Sheet”, where the title is simply: “- Wrath of the Lich King Fact Sheet – September 2007 -“

It’s amazing to know you guys have just got a kit that’s (sorry for this talk, but..) useless. I mean it. However, they did the Fansite License on their own.

Shocked? Amused? Let us know in the comments.

Official: No Egg Hunts

April 13, 2009 at 2:34 pm | Posted in News | 4 Comments

Sad news for veteran players and new players, on an announcement of April 12th, Reese said that there would be no Egg Hunt this year.

And yet: “We have less staff then last year”. So it means they have more work for develloping, and less time for organizing pwnage contests. So, we fall to this conclusion: There’s no Egg hunting this year. And we learn that ROBLOX needs more staff in order to make unique contests.

Plastic and Wood

March 17, 2009 at 5:54 pm | Posted in News | 8 Comments

plastic-and-woodDurrr. Our Roblox are hit with an update. Before you go paranoid and spam: “OMG OMG THIS SUCKS/::::!!!!”, the update isn’t so bad. I think it’s good, actually. So what do we have in this update? From the picture, I am saying in advance. There will be no waffles related in this post…

  • New Stud Design: My little finger says this is to avoid confusion between LE/GO and Roblox, or to avoid Legal Chases. Beveled Block Studs, lawlwut?
  • Wood: Normal bricks are now called “Plastic” bricks, and there’s another type of brick, called “Wood” bricks. Apart being stylish looking, nothing much about theses bricks. However, a scripter could find an interesting solution with Wood bricks. This also might show the start of Elemental bricks. (Water? Ice? Metal? Marble?)
  • Suggestions: Check out a few pages on ROBLOX, and you’ll see theses “Recommendations”. It basically gives you four suggestions of related items that might interest you.
  • More Skyscraper Ads! It will now appear on the Forums. Some forumers are mad because of that…
  • Free Games????!!!! Is ROBLOX becoming a game based on “fun free game” sites, like thoses who take the flash games? Go on the Home Page or a Game. Now look on the site’s name. Scary.

Dawn of the Fixed Physics – Roblox Update

March 3, 2009 at 5:50 pm | Posted in News | 6 Comments

physicsupdate

A new Roblox update has landed, and it’s this time for the better. We have now “fixed” physics! We also know that CTF Flags are now working, and Planes are not glitchy anymore. As well, as the fixed physics themself… There might be more, but I don’t know about them. Bad news to 2D Builders and Sword Fighters, 2D Script by bob10110 is officialy “broken” and is unsuable. Swords aren’t fixed. However, it might in a future update.

Someone on the forums posted that the Teapot Turret dosn’t work anymore, that might make a few guys sad. However, I bet clockwork is going to find a solution to that. Might be in AGES though. (Or in SEGA…?)

Loved the update? Wanna give the admins a cookie for their work? Hate this update? Discuss in the Comments below.

Return of the Friday’s Loot

February 28, 2009 at 1:36 pm | Posted in News | 1 Comment

Rejoice, 24/7 shoppers! ROBLOX released a bunch of new stuff. However, this release contains the two first Alternate Head hats. More details are below.

Peabrain – This head posseses one Hat specially adapted to it. Mini Top Hat. It is basically the same as the Normal Head, exept it is more… smaller?

Diamond – This head wasn’t talked about much. It is however formed as a diamond. Now, we just need a Jewel Head to complete that collection…

Fat Head – Now you can eat SonicBoy Delights and get fat! ’nuff said.

Blockhead Baseball Cap – What. Is. THIS??? The fact it is supposed to be BASEBALL CAP. This, really should have been called “Red Baseball Blockcap”. Besides, calling the Blue one (if it is ever made) “Blue Blockhead Baseball Cap” is just WAY too long for a name.

Tiny Top Hat – The price is too good to be true. This has to be the cheapest of all Top Hats. Actually, count it 1500 ROBUX in total if you considere getting the Peabrain head. Actually, if you have a normal head with this, it looks like a Button for you to press.

Cheezburger: The Complete History – This is one of the few User-Made hats that actually got the Transformation into a real hat. It was made by GeneralCheese. The description somewhat refers that “a sequel” might arrive. Oh yes, the ad will be a Burger on a book. I just can think of that…..

A release of hats were also, but you can always look on the Catalog, or even the Roblog. Did you like the release? What is the thing you liked the most? The worst? You got a dissapointement? Let us know in the comments.

[Preview] The Next Website Layout

February 5, 2009 at 6:40 pm | Posted in News | 2 Comments

No, this isn’t related to Roblox Direct. Today, we are going to talk about the joys of the test server, who showed to the lucky users who connected at the right time, a NEW website layout.

Since the Test Server is currently offline, the only difference you can see is the Header. Reading the forums is quite useful, because they always tell things over and over again… Check out the forums when you have time, you’ll rejoice if you find an answer.

Sorry, there’s no screenshots for now, but if your a lucky person, and are willing to supply some screenshots, or, even supply us more info on the new layout, comment. I might add it into the post.

Crazeh RoblEX

January 29, 2009 at 10:03 am | Posted in News | Leave a comment

Yesterday afternoon, the RoblEX server got jammed packed. Since alot of Transactions where performed at almost the same time, the server got litteraly slowed down. If you did a Transaction, you would have to wait 5 minutes in order to get the money. Alot of Users though it stole their money, but Telamon reassured that the transactions would be given once they fixed it.

After using the “Pink Information Bar” (or PIB, it dosen’t have a name…), Users continued doing Transactions. The admins had to take advanced measures and Disabling the RoblEX until it was fixed.

After Matt.Dusek’s Hard work, they managed to fix it. And now, you can do transactions again!

In other news, they opened the Test Server for an Update. Dunno what it is, since I’m on the Wii…

Roblox brings you faces

January 15, 2009 at 5:57 pm | Posted in News | Leave a comment

face-update

A new roblox update has hit! Not much is new, but a new thing for fashion. Remember the post where I talked about the Faces in the Test Server. They are now published, and they go well! Other than that, there’s another minor update, and it’s the parent login. With this… err… … oh I see. Your not concerned, but it’s just for the parents. ;P

One bad thing is that some faces have an crazy price. One of them -believe it or not-, costs 5,000 Robux! You can get a Purple Banded Top Hat with that! Anyway, most of them look cool, but you’ll have to pay in Robux. Maybe it’s time you’d use the Currency Converter?

In other news, … well, do I have to say something here?
