Game Music is Alive! (now sadly Dead)
By elmuerte at 2013-01-13 08:43

On Saturday June 29, 2013 the first Game Music is Alive! concert will be held in Paris.

In Game Music is Alive! an orchestra will perform music from various video games from the past 20 years. They will play music created by Christophe Héral (Beyond Good and Evil), Phillipe Vachey (Alone in the Dark, LBA), Raphaël Gesqua (Fade to Black, Flash Back), Olivier Derivière and Samy Cheboub.

So if you're in the neighborhood you should check it out.

Additionally, there is a poster contest where you can win some goodies and an invitation to the concert, and you'll meet the people involved.

Sadly the concert and thus contest has been canceled

The Twinsuniverse
By J McKalling at 2012-12-22 17:57
Hello everybody!

We probably all know the Encyclopedia Twinsunica, and we're all aware that it's quite old and is missing a lot of information. There's also a Wikia website that holds a great source of information as well, and it doesn't stop there. Some time ago I started even another base of information, called the Knowledge Base, which is a forum right here on the MBN. So what's it with all this stuff?

As the MBN community, we need to have all information about the universe of Twinsun, the games and all other related sources. Most of us don't even know where to find certain information anymore. A conversation about some bug here or there, and it turns into a months stretching discussion about what causes it and when. Lots of very interesting challenges to play after game finish, but also lots of discussions spread everywhere. So where does everything go? We need to gather everything we know and have been documenting at various places, and then put everything into one tightly organized location once and for all.

Fortunately, this is not so difficult! Just a lot of work. But remember we're with lots of people as well, so if we all collaborate, from all across the world, we can do this together. So I have great news indeed, as I've been working on the "Twinsuniverse" for a few months now, which is intended to combine everything we know into one knowledge base. The Twinsunica was the most prominent base, so I chose to base everything off that one, hence the name similarity.

I've just recently succesfully finished importing each and every in-game character and enemy article (both LBA1 and LBA2) from the Twinsunica, and I intend to do so for all other existing articles as well. So to maintain previous histories and to have a basic entry for the pages. So there is still some work to do, but I hope to finish the first public milestone by the end of this month, and then I'll post the instructions on how to get started at the Twinsuniverse. Currently it's hosted by one of our members, but it is intended to be moved over to the MBN later, if Elmuerte agrees (he's the only one who can do that). I hope you'll all like this project, and I hope there is interest to help out building it up to completion!

What do you think?


An update from Phillipe Vachey
By elmuerte at 2012-12-22 08:37
Just in case you don't know who Phillipe Vachey is, he's the guy that made the excellent music for the two Little Big Adventure games, Time Commando, and a bunch of other games.

The Prequel Demo is now released
By Zink at 2012-12-06 09:07
Hello all LBA and Prequel fans.

The time has come to reveal everything and end everything.
As you know, for the last few years we have been working on the LBA Prequel demo, to show you a glimpse of what the full game could become.

The demo is now finished! You can download it from the Download page. This is the good news.

The bad news is that the project is now officially cancelled. Yes, the Prequel will not be made.

You can read more on this on our blog (http://lbaprequel.xesf.net/blog/) or in the thread I have created in the Prequel section of the forums: https://forum.magicball.net/showthread.php?t=16549.

The whole SOPA/PIPA thing
By elmuerte at 2012-01-18 22:29
As you may have noticed, a lot of sites have gone black or stopped updating on the 18th of January 2012. This is all done to give off a signal to the US government that their proposed laws called SOPA and PIPA are a terrible thing.
The main reason why the MBN didn't went black was that I didn't prepare anything.
But just to make things clear as possible, with laws like SOPA and PIPA the MBN would not even exist. A lot of the activity on the MBN revolves around user creations, a single spoof of a movie containing Twinsen would be reason enough to remove the MBN from the Internet. But its not just user creations, but also a simple avatar of a Disney character or a quote from the Harry Potter books posted on the MBN could be a reason to kill off the whole site.

So if you live in the US, don't forgot to do your part and save the internet (see links below on what you could do). But it's not just laws in the US that form a problem. The same media giants are also pushing for similar laws in other countries. So keep your eyes open.

Game quote

By using the Action command in front of a plan, a print or any other illustration, you immediately create a copy with the Magic Slate. You can consult it at any time by selecting the Slate in the inventory.
