Most of all ... I love MESS
MESS is my old golden friend

This mess is highly psyhodelic, although highly innovative.


(and where is THE excellence ?...)

Xcellence is the name from a swedish teen band created in a reality show on tv, are you sure you want to use that name ? :)
Personally I want to throw up when I hear it...

Looks pretty good, but where is/are the lighting/lightmaps?

David Olsson: Vad för slags namn kan man vänta sig av ett gäng tyska programmerare? =)

Tänk om det faktiskt inte är ett gäng tyska nördar utan faktiskt tjejerna i Xcellence... Vad förvånad jag skulle bli... :)

"don't be rude, speak in english"

December 02, 2001, 05:30 AM

December 02, 2001, 05:57 AM

Actually, if you're referring to what William Dahlberg wrote, it's SWEDISH, not german!

To Michael: Keep up the good work!

Just to make it painfully clear to anyone that is still confused - the IOTD's site is in German, the conversation above is in Swedish.

David Olsson

I don't quite follow, can you please be a bit more precise ?


December 02, 2001, 09:21 AM

K-otic has to be the worst tho


December 02, 2001, 09:22 AM

December 02, 2001, 09:24 AM

Hey, where are you guys based? I couldnt find any info on your homepage.


December 02, 2001, 09:24 AM

And I know it's in germany :)))


December 02, 2001, 11:23 AM

Yeah, but in the danish version of the show they called the band Eye-Q which is even worse :-)


December 02, 2001, 12:24 PM

It was "O-Town" here in the States. :o)

David Olsson

December 02, 2001, 12:38 PM

Ok you win, Eye-Q is about the most stupid name I have ever heard... :)

Jason Kozak

December 02, 2001, 01:25 PM

I second that. In fact, I'm really quite impressed as to how utterly stupid that sounds.

Wir sind alles Deutsche (kein Schwedisch, oder Dänisch .. Gott bewahre *g*). Und, wenn alles klappt, bald eine Firma. Eine Demo kann man von unserer Homepage unter Projekte downloaden.

Also nochmal ... diesmal in deutsch :)(kann kein schwedisch)
Auf der Homepage kann man ein Demo zu dem Ballergame downloaden. Man findet es unter Projekte.
Diese Rubrik wird bald erneuert, da wir unser nächstes geplantes Projekt, das RPG, hinzufügen.
X-Cellence ist z.Z. ein Entwicklungscrew die sich via Internet zusammengefunden hat. Wir sind auf Publisher Suche für unser nächstes Projekt und befinden uns auch in der Gründungsphase einer Firma. Wer mehr Info möchte, kann mich gerne unter oder an anfunken.

Oure guys are based in germany. The base is in Offenbach (Main) near Frankfurt (Main).


December 03, 2001, 04:32 AM

Bare lige for at deltage i den nordiske diskussion...
Nu har jeg ikke lige set Xcellence, men det lyder jo somom det er nogle babes... Så påt med at konceptet sucks ;)
Og hvis det er pigerne (tjejerna) fra Xcellence der har lavet spillet bag IOTD... så har de en del mere at byde på end Eye-Q ;)
Venlig hilsen Danny (Danmark)

To all non-nordic, sorry about the nordic-incrypted message, i just had to comment this nordic thread ;) The incryption used is Danish, my native language (or is it c/c++)


December 03, 2001, 04:39 AM

Hey- watch your language - I understand german, eaven though im from denmark. Im not too offended though.
Keep up the good work.
Best regards Danny
