Damn and I kinda hoped for a August 2018 release. Oh well, take your time Ken, quality knows no time restrictions.

Almost a year later, but has there been any progress on TFG?

Some time back, there was mild conversation about an in game arcade. And I had proposed placing a sit in cabinet of the proposed Knight Rider unit inside...with an out of order sign on it.

At last. I stumbled across some real information about said cancelled arcade machine. ( https://youtu.be/HBmHJCTpV9E?t=278 ) The information for this starts at the 4:38 mark.

Any updates?

I just checked the msken profile. Says last active: __ . Guess he has been missing for months or a year.

I'm still lurking and very much still working on the game. You guys don't seem to understand or care that I have a nervous system disease that's going to eventually kill me once it reaches my organs. That explanation is hard for me to even type out, so I just tell people look into RSD/CRPS. No one ever does though, they just wanna know where the damn game is, believe me this timeline was never my intention. I suffer day to day with chronic pain on an unbelievable level, It's rated on the pain index above child labor. There is a movie about it called "Trial by Fire" about Bob Marley's wife and her battle with the same disease. Sorry guys and gals but I'm doing this at my own pace, while still living my life to best that I can. For the record I'm not pulling a fast one like that ass clown that faked his death here a couple years ago, I'm not dying yet, not even close to it, I have years to live before what I have becomes fatal but also no one can predict the future. I'm still holding out hope I might live to see a cure to put my condition into remission. If necessary I can and have already offered to prove I'm disabled to a mod or and admin if need be. I can say a new trailer is currently in the early stages of being cut. I'm sorry to take the 3DRealms approach here, but the game will be done when its done. I can't commit to any time frame right now.

Wow, I'm sorry to hear about your health issues. This is the first I've heard of it. I hope you make a recovery or find ways to cope with your symptoms. We haven't spoken in years so that would explain a lot. Looking forward to playing your demo when it comes out.

Ken my friend, you'll never have to prove yourself like that whilst I'm here. Yes, the user in question abused the honour system when he pulled that fracked up stunt, but I still believe in taking people at their word above all else.

Everyone here knows of my battle with depression thanks to the actions of another disgruntled former member, and not a day goes by without it affecting it me on a very fundamental level, so I can certainly empathise when it comes to the basics of what you go through on a day-to-day basis. I can only assure you that some of us do put your health and wellbeing above that of your game, and that we'd consider anyone who didn't worthy of getting a clip around the earhole.

Matt
Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?

At least there's news re TFG that it isn't dead yet, pardon the awful pun.

Well, Ken. This is your magnum opus. A wonderful gift to this aging community. You take as much time as you want to. Nobody has the right to put pressure on you for completing it. And, I do hope for the improvement of medical science to find a cure to such a nightmare condition. Nobody should have to endure pain, after all.

On a personal note, my grandfather had a medical condition that kept him in regular pain in his later years. Only medicine around did little and cost a lot. He eventually chose to end it all in one of the bravest ways by slow starvation. And with every passing year, it's looking more likely that I may be heading towards the same destination. Just thought that I would share.

Maybe in that unwritten, alternate universe of mine, there's a Dr. KARR waiting to figure out the cure to all medical ills. Out there in another dimension.
