Scheduled network downtime somewhere this week for some time
By elmuerte at 2007-11-20 20:57
The machine ("sinas") that is currently hosting the MBN is quite old and had two mysterious system crashes in the past few months. So it was due to be replaced some time. Today the new machine ("mezzomix") arrived and somewhere this week (probably this Wednesday) sinas will be taken offline in order to be moved to mezzomix. The MBN will get it's own VM on mezzomix. After the moving of sinas to mezzomix is done it will be placed back into the co-location facility. During this time the MBN will be offline.
Well, the process will go something like that anyway.
I don't know how long everything will take, but I of course hope it all will be done ASAP.

During the MBN downtime you can still come by in the semi official MBN IRC channel: #lba on EFNet (info).

Update (2007-11-24): everything went smo... well... it is up again.

The MBN is up, just like Baldino's balloon

Sir F. Raynal mini-Interview

Regarding LBA3
  • Have any plans been made to commence development
Not yet and not before the end of my Ubisoft project
  • If so, have you resolved isses concerning collaboration with LWS and Philippe Vachey
There are no issues with them, everybody waits for the right time frame.

Regarding your current work
  • How has the project progress commenced so far?
Very good, I really enjoy it, it's something very special, hope you'll like it...
  • Is there a release date, or possible details regarding the project?
No release date yet, but I think Ubi will start speaking about it middle next year.

Regarding Ludoid
  • I see the website is not yet up, is there any hope to see it come up soon?
I have a lot to do with my projects, and don't really know what I can put on it. (except an annoucement to tell I bought MBN that was a good joke. I wanted to answer with another joke, like I wanted to suit MBN for that annoucement but didn't take the time.)
  • Will you expand the company into a full working studio in the foreseeable future?
That could happen, we'll see that at the end of my Ubisoft project. Now, it's good to work the way I do, like a consultant but very integrated in studios.

LBA File Information website launched
By ChaosFish at 2007-07-03 17:27
If you're one of these people who can't just settle for playing their favorite game, but have to understand how it works and how to modify it - this news is for you.

LBA File Information is there to be the source of information on everything and anything related to the technical aspect of both LBA games.

The new site has been developed by Zink and is based on the old LBA File Info project by ChaosFish. It is designed to be user friendly and easy to comprehend, even if you don't know squat about programming and software development.

You'll find information about all the programs that you can use to modify the games. If you're really hard core, even technical specifications of the formats the games use. But the coolest feature of this site is the information about all the entries of all the packages of the games.

The site still doesn't have all the information of all the files; but anyone can just submit any information that's missing using the right form. An administrator will add it to the site along with credits to the submitter.

More information (which we already have) will be added to the site in the next couple of days.

For any other discussions about LBA moding, the MBN's LBA Modifications forum is still there waiting for you!

Little Big Adventure 2 is 10 years old
By elmuerte at 2007-06-26 06:50
(LBA2 Cover)
About 10 years ago Adeline Software completed the second game in the Little Big Adventure universe.
In LBA2, also known as Twinsen's Odyssey in other parts of the world, Twinsen sets out for a new adventure in which new visits a new planet and meets new people.
LBA2 was well received by the press, getting review scores around 90%.

As a birthday present the people of the Polish website Planeta Twinsun have released their LBA3 Trailer (note: this is of course a fan movie, and not an official trailer).
You can view the fan movie here on YouTube or download the movie here.
A couple of posters of this fan movie can be found in this thread.

MBN featured in a Daily Mail commercial.
By elmuerte at 2007-05-31 10:52

Over a month ago Lewi-G notified us that he put MBN logo on T-Shirt of virtual people in a commercial he was working on for work.
This commercial would be shown in the UK before Pirates of the Caribbean.
Now we finally have proof of a virtual person wearing an MBN T-Shirt. It is rather small, almost invisible on a normal screen, but you might notice it on a big movie screen (when you're using a microscope).
You can view the full advertisement here, you can't actually see the person with the T-Shirt in that video because of the low resolution. But attached to this thread you'll find some screencaps.

You can discuss this news item here.

Game quote

Magic Saber, once the Saber is in hand (ENTER key), (ALT) key to strike. It is the most powerful weapon on this planet. You can use the Magic Ball again by reselecting it.
