Hi all! Some of you old timers might remember me, primarily from the bug forums. It's really great to see that the community lives on. Here are a few random DR pics from my files.

Fun with the DR comic creator:

Twin Lions is a Chinese restaurant, the QA team would order from there frequently.

A fun bug from fairly early on. There was no limit to how many broodlings Sissirat could spawn. Checking the lag returned a number in scientific notation! Took a screenshot shortly before the server died =)

Hiya Dooms.... Nice screenshots... I actually think I remember that bug...

How's things been for you since you left the DR Dev team?

Working on anything juicy or otherwise able to talk about?? Been keeping in touch with CuppaJo or Crickette??

Now if we can only get Stephen to make an account here it'd be just like "old times".... :drswink:

I've actually been really lucky given all the gaming layoffs last year, managed to avoid them all =) I worked on City of Heroes/Villains for a few issues, followed by some testing for Aion. Both projects were loads of fun! I left NCSoft to pursue an opportunity with Trion, working on Heroes of Telara.

I do check in with Cuppa and Crickette on occasion. It's a very small industry, so people tend to stay in contact of some form or another. It's a bit like the Kevin Bacon game, only you can probably link any 2 people in the industry through only 1 degree of separation!

I've been playing some Torchlight lately, great for that dungeon farming loot fix :lol:

Dooms!

I'm pretty sure this is a screenshot of you:

Also, here's a screenshot of me surrounded by mobs, too, although not as severe as you (except for the death part):

Yep, that's me! You can tell by the uberrare Crimson armor. I wore that armor 20 levels longer than I should have cause it looked unique, lol.

"Old timers"? Come on, it weren't THAT long ago you left. Or is time just running away that fast?

Think it's awesome of you to check in and even cooler that you actually found this place.

Yeah, Dungeon Runners will prevail for a long time. 10-20 years from now I think we who were dedicated players still will remember back to these past years as the 'golden years'.

DR was my first job in the gaming industry, my dream job. I remember sitting down at my desk the first day and my boss said "Go ahead and play for the day to get familiar". I loaded it up, and then got this huge goofy grin on my face as I realized I got to play a game all day, every day! It was a lot of work too, but even those aspects were fun in the context of such a silly game. I'm a bit older and a bit more jaded these days, but DR was a really incredible time for me. It'll be fondly remembered here.

Hello, dream job.

And hello dooms. I don't think I ever knew you, but if you were one of the devs, thank you so much for one of the greatest games of all time!

He was the QA guy if memory serves back when NCsoft kinda cared about things like not putting out a game that was TOO buggy... :p

I looked at the screenshots from your site and were they taken from a modified Source engine by chance? the SS's have a very polished HL2 feel to them and I am more curious on a personal level then anything else...

Did I hear the words "Source Engine"?
(I dabble in writing mods for source games)
