Welcome! / Hello Again
July 19, 2014, 10:04:02 pm
Well, I'm by no means a new member, but I have been inactive for a couple years now, popping in from time to time to see how everything was going (Mostly looking at ARC). Speaking of ARC, I've noticed that it's now open source, which I think is awesome. I'll have to take a look at sometime soon and possibly contribute.

Anyways, I've started to get back into RPG Maker lately and I'm gonna be starting a simple and short project soon. I'm gonna start being more active around here and probably be asking for help because I most likely forgot how to do a lot of things.
This tutorial will teach you how to add a file type to you're Right Click->New Menu


  • Administrator Rights

When something is enclosed in "quotes" to type, don't type the quotes.

Step 12. Type "C:\Windows\ShellNew\<new file.ext>" where <new file.ext> is the file you made in step one.

Step 14. Exit RegEdit and restart you're computer.

Step 15. Enjoy!

I am recruiting for my Terraria Clone:,12375.0.html
I am currently in need of pixel artists for textures, like blocks and people and stuff. I would preferable want people willing to stay with my game "company", Afterlife Games, for a while, but if you only want to help with this game, or contribute one or two textures, that would be okay.

Whats in it for you?

  • You will get access to closed development builds, only available for the team.

  • And more!

Whats required?

  • Proof of work

  • Willing to work for free, as this game will be free.

  • A means of communication, preferably Skype

I will be taking 2 or 3 people at the most, if you're interested, reply to down below with some examples of what you've done.

I recently started a Beginner Lua Tutorial Series on my youtube channel. I'm starting with the basics with just the console, but once I finish that I'm going to go over how to use it in other situations such as ComputerCraft and the Love 2D API. There are 8 lessons currently uploaded and I have gone over (in order of appearance)

Also, If I forgot to mention anything in a lesson leave a comment and I'll do something about it, we all forget sometimes.
