Are you kinda sick on this picture, you look damn strange...

Grayish skin.
Fully dialted pupils.
Luke, you really need to get out more often.


November 12, 2001, 01:58 PM

I can't believe an alien has that T-shirt and I don't!

Oops, I typoed on my previous post:
I meant to write "fully *dilated* pupils.
Anyway, Taking a 20 minute walk each day should help clear up that complexion.

Looks pretty normal to me, but what's with the colour of the arms?

Some people have too much spare time :)

Definately a game programmer . . . Enlarged cranium (due to excess game programming information.) Low-saturation skin tone and fully dilated pupils (extended periods of working in the dark.) The mindless I've-been-looking-at-a-screen-for-hours stare. The tense poise of someone who just beat an FPS at an inhuman difficulty level. Of course, the shirt is what really gives it away.

Someone needs to post the obligatory "nice textures! great detail! what kind of framerate do you get?" or else the sarcastic yet equally overdone "that looks terrible, not realistic at all" joke.

Seriously, that shirt rocks.

I see a box of clementines... Yummm.

What does your girlfriend look like ?

...And what have you done with Mulder ?


November 12, 2001, 02:52 PM

I knew Flipcode was very popular among humans but I didn't realize it is popular to other species as well. BTW, great T-shirt. :P


November 12, 2001, 03:03 PM

Okay, so where's the order form for the shirt?


November 12, 2001, 03:11 PM

At how many FPS do you run? You look high-poly, and with that lighting it would be very slow I guess.

Where can i find Flipcode T-Shirt ?


November 12, 2001, 03:47 PM

I thought i had an awful sofa. I was wrong ;)


November 12, 2001, 03:48 PM

I prefer a human head ;-)

about the t-shirts, I thought you could only get those by writing a tutorial or by winning a coding contest.
Unfortunatly, I don't know something to write about.


November 12, 2001, 04:03 PM

How many polygons are on your head? and how did you make the realistic hand skins?

Kurt Miller

Weird, that image looks a bit like my mirror :o.

">>Okay, so where's the order form for the shirt?"

The flipcode shirt Luke's wearing is one of fifty that were made a while ago, given primarily to tutorial authors and contest winners. They weren't for sale. I'm supposed to be working on a new run of (different) shirts that'll be available for purchase, but I haven't had the time just yet. I'll of course announce on the news page when they're ready.


November 12, 2001, 04:19 PM

I would be very interested to buy one too!

Tobias Franke

November 12, 2001, 04:27 PM

Yes yes, all the t0t47 733t h4x0rZ g0t 0n3 ;) The real question though is: Where did you get that funky alien helmet?


November 12, 2001, 04:48 PM

Hmm I knew his coding was out of this world.
Now I know why.

Looking good! That new haircut really suits you...

Jari Komppa

November 12, 2001, 05:08 PM

*gasp*. Now I'm afraid of wearing mine - it might wear out or something! =)

Daniel Ludwig

November 12, 2001, 05:58 PM

What helmet?

Simon B Wilson

November 12, 2001, 06:09 PM now sells t-shirts, using Cafepress (, who can make up a whole range of products, including basic t-shirts, hats, mugs, mousepads and more.

No, I don't work for them, but I do use their service. And rather than having to sort out orders yourself, it's got built-in billing, plus you can set the price and make an outrageous profit on them :)

Can't wait to get my Flipcode tee!
