Twinsen's Adventure 2nd Release
By MBN Bot at 2004-11-24 18:29

Around late 2002 I shared with the MBN my ambition to create a commercial LBA website, one that a game like LBA deserves. I also shared my vision of an international site, one with the most up to date information and resources regarding LBA, and the creators. Today that vision is to be realized, both by myself, and by the many fans whom without, this site would not have been possible.

TwinAdv release 2 offers a number of improvements, and additions, namely:-
: - The site is translated into 13 languages (with only 7 ready for upload)
: - New fans page has been added. Now any passer by can see the many faces of LBA fans.
: - New e-mail from Frederick Raynal (sorry guys, no luck with TP screenshots)
: - New files section
: - Added LBA sections, now anyone passing by can find out what LBAs all about.
: - New FAQ section (still work in progress)
: - LBA3 petition is now 24 pages long! That has been updated so that the better worded petitions now appear randomly at the top.
: - Search function is now available
: - TwinAdv Crew is formed of 11 members, almost all of different nationalities!
: - And of course, a great new look, and design!

If you feel you could contribute to the site, either by translating it in your own language, or writing an article for it, please email us at [email address]

Many thanks to all the contributors for their hard work!

Also thanks go to Frederick Raynal, who kindly replied to my e-mail with some great news!

TwinAdv 2nd release launches 21:00 GMT Wednesday 24th of November.

I am happy to announce that a new site for LBA was created.
The site contains projects for editing LBA files like the projects you find on MBN.
All projects are open-source.
The site is incomplete but it will be completed soon.
The main thing is to bring open source software to the community and help people learn about LBA File-Formats.

Hope you like it!!!

I got some more news on www.twinadv.com this time Lucifer found it. Apparently the french government gives grants to French video games companies and f4-toys happens to be one of them, this comes at a time when Frederick Raynal has declared F4-Toys has NO financial problems!

By MBN Bot at 2003-10-06 21:49
Im happy to announce that the site i talked about in May 2003 has been completed and has been reviewed by Frederick Raynal (Note he did not verify that everyhting was correct)
The site aims to be the Info centre as well as a commercial lba site (for future time)
We therefore invite anyone who believes he can add somthing to simply contact me or lucifer.
The main feature of the site, which is extremely unique to other LBA sites is the articles section.
In it has info on f4-toys, Fred, and trium planeta which has not been released before.
The site design is a starters design, a more complex design will be made (once we really need the commercial section)

Hope you like it!

Trium Planeta By MID 2004
By MBN Bot at 2003-06-10 23:15
Again, one of my frequent searches brings some very good news. The following passage was translated to english from russian. The original document can be found here:-
F4-toys has been looking for a publisher, as the company is independant of any other company
This is the first piece of good news in a long time, i didnt excpect tp for a few more years

"Company F4-Toys on closed stand E3 has presented the working version of first project Trinum Planeta. The press not so has noticed the beginner, having built in turn to Half-Life 2, as in the mausoleum. F4-Toys have taken offence, but a kind have not shown. Also have correctly made, you see there works itself ???????? ??????? (Frederick Raynal), one of founders Alone in the Dark and Little Big Adventure. F4-Toys promises to finish Trinum Planeta up to middle of 2004."

Explore desert island like never before:)
By MBN Bot at 2003-05-31 21:46
I was playing lba2, for like the 50th time, when i had to save the game, while driving the car. When i came to load the game i had my finger on the "up" button, and suddenly i was in the center of the market area! I drove around a bit trying to leave the place, without luck. So i saved the game again, and loaded it with my finger on the up button, and i was over the mountain?! This is a very cool bug, i wont post any savegames because they arnt needed. I tested it on another pc, happy to say it worked again Try this with your protopack, might work aswell, who knows!

F4-toys at E3
By MBN Bot at 2003-05-28 20:52
The MBN member, darkflame, got a net buddy, who was going to E3 to cisit f4-toys post there. Apparently they werent showing of a game, but were looking for publishers (note fred said they had none the last time i called him) This is what he had to say:-

"Hi Thomas

How are you?

Sorry for the delay in responding, I only got back from the US on Monday.

OK - I went to F4-Toys section in the Kentia Hall (6904) - Basically, it was
a private (closed in) meeting room, so I knocked on the door and I entered

They had a big display of some videogame character and a monitor displaying
a game. Two guys were sat down one was Fredric Raynal and the other guy was
Alexis Galley (I knew because I quickly read their badges). I was greeted by
Alexis, who asked what I wanted (quite abruptly if the truth be known)...

I explained that I had come to look at game by Fredric Raynal
and I'd like to take a few photographs of it if possible. Alexis then asked
"Who are you?" I explained that I had visited this stand on behalf of the
LBA forum who were huge fans of Fredric Raynal, and represented 100+ fans of
him and his work.

I was then told by Alexis that I couldn't take any photos or look at the game as they would only talk to publishers. I then said that I am from a publisher and gave him my card - again, he said that I still couldn't take any photographs and I said "Well OK, I'm sorry to bother you..." then as I left he handed me his business card and said if "they" wanted any information, they must contact him directly.

The details on the business
card were:

Alexis Galley
Chief Executive Officer
(his email)

Tel: +33 (0)********** (phone number censored )
Fax: +33 (0) **********

6, rue Lincoln
75008 Paris

I'm sorry that I didn't get anymore info - I DID try really hard and was
100% polite through out. (I know what it is like to be a fan of someone's
work and to be hunting for snippets of info)

Please let me know if you get anywhere with these details :-)

Take care

George Bray
Project Manager "
