A new front end site is under development (AI and Matt not me!) but it appears not many people are posting at the moment (Not helped by the attachments being lost)

Exactly. Are the attachment ever going to be back or are there forums useless now?

It's not dead ..
.. It's merely a flesh wound

Post by: Captain Scarlet on September 30, 2013, 07:37:35 PM
A very big flesh wound, missing legs and guts

It's nice having the forums as a piece of history though.

Hi Matt, Toadie, Kain, Sandler, YNG, Daza, Lurid, A.I, Cappie, fury, Tycell, Romka, Gaming Lord, Police, Barnz, Vert and everyone else*!

*I tried to nostalgia a bit harder but it seems that Microsoft deletes old Hotmail accounts and I have no way of looking at my old friends list. =(

It's not dead its merely a flesh wound.

I'm sure Chris (a.k.a Cappie) takes a peek in here occasionally

I hope you're doing well Cappie.. this was a great forum in its hey day

It's also been so long since I've posted I've forgotten the bbcode for embedding images

So you guys didn't have any direct contact outside of the forum? Couldn't you check up on them to make sure they're okay?

Sure, I mean I have A.I on Steam, but I don't want to message him for fear of looking like a fanboy.

Captain Scarlet has me on Steam, and Skype anyway lol I've just been busy working on other things recently so not really been back here for awhile.

Guys, can we get a Steam Group going?

Pweeeaze?

I stopped by after like a 2 year hiatus to see if we had any signs of life left only to see the last post was 2 days ago! Totes not dead, though... maybe on life support... in a coma.

Also sweet, a steam group!
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: ZikShadow on July 24, 2015, 01:04:30 AM
Came back after quite a long time, couldn't believe what happened to the attachments and such.

At least it looks like the good ol' HIT Forums may return, which is awesome.
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: Sandler on July 28, 2015, 05:35:50 PM
I miss this place :`(

But you can find me on steam (and our HIT grp) and facebook so there :D

Title: Re: Is HIT dead?

I think Cappie is now about to set the world record for the longest continuous running gamers forum.
Running for over 10 years now.  ;D


Which reminds me .. about 7 or 8 years ago he gifted me a HL2 DLC via steam. I forgot to say thanks for that..
I might be late .. but .... Thanks Chris !!

By answering the question "is HIT dead" with yes, does that make the answer no?

Holy crap almost a year to the day that I decide to check back. Weird.

I agree, it's great that it's still up.
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: LaggedRabbit on August 20, 2015, 03:33:16 PM
Well the number of posts has dramatically picked up in the last few weeks.

Could this mean HIT is coming back from the dead ? .. Is a final release of HL:E imminent ?  :o

Well I do still have the source code around somewhere. Its not really in a finished state though
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: tundra_cool on August 27, 2015, 07:06:48 AM
I'm really surprised that, and appreciative for, these forums maintaining their history. Honestly, I shudder when viewing most of my older posts but some of the releases and what-not can't be found anywhere else online. Props to everyone keeping this place what it is/was and everyone else for being a part of it.

A big cheers to Cappie for keeping HIT alive for so long.  ;)

I'm using HIT to show people what happens to semi-abandoned forums

(http://i735.photobucket.com/albums/ww352/sumdood123/spider.jpg) (http://s735.photobucket.com/user/sumdood123/media/spider.jpg.html)

The spiders have taken over.

It's also a great historical archive.

Well semi destroyed, still no idea where the omg folder went as it contained everything.
Still a bad lesson to me regarding keeping backups
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: ZikShadow on January 08, 2016, 11:58:37 AM
Well, i did sort of backup bits and pieces here and there.
It's not much (if any, even), but i hope somebody got something out of this.

Had some good (and not-so-good) times on these forums, went through 2 computers in the time I was active and/or lurking. Weird to see it's still around - even in this state. Still, I hope it'll return to us one day.

I've recently reached 300 games on Steam and had many changes of hardware since then too: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Shredderman962/

I can certainly say I'm no longer the little shit poster I once was. What's worse was that I was around 14 at the time, not less than 12 (Thanks Matt). But it's still the "twelvie" phase.
Instead of looking back in shame, I'm literally laughing my ass off at the amount of cringe that my younger hands have produced. Feels like I've washed all the diarrhea off since then.

Recently though, I've been enjoying BeamNG.Drive (among other things): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11Zju8kXtUk

Sheridanm962 was unbanned?

I don't know whether that's a positive response... I never remember you showing negativity, but knowing how forums work it's a huge disappointment that some people hold grudges in a community. On top of that it's been around 6 years, so who cares?
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: Flowers Of Naivety on August 11, 2016, 01:38:28 PM
I'm still checking the forum now and then. It's a nice reminder of when things were simple in life. I miss playing online with my clan mates and making skins and doing artwork. I miss everyone from here. Aydin is still around and still making artwork for games so that's awesome.

I've been working at USPS for over a year now. Bought myself a brand new '16 Civic EX-L. Then bought my girlfriend, Jenny, a '12 Civic. I've also lost over 100 pounds. Working at 7-11 put a lot of extra weight on me but learning about Keto on Reddit helped me lose it, as well as the 10-12 hour shifts 6 nights a week at work.

I hope this forum never disappears.

If anyone wants they can add me on facebook. I dunno if anyone would be interested but whatever. Do it. https://www.facebook.com/cancerslut

Huh, nearly one year has passed again, time to check this place!

It kinda makes me happy to see it's still up and running :) nice to wallow in those old memories preserved here!
Thanks for that Cpt.

Post by: Greaser on October 25, 2016, 11:07:18 AM
I loved this forum. Probably my most favorite in general. Lots of fond memories.

EDIT: Is there any chance we could rebuild this place all over again? You know, get the old people back (or at least as many as we could) and bring back the goodness? Now, I know there's HLC forum, but that simply isn't the same thing, at all.

Yep I'd agree with you ..
For some weird reason I come back here every few months just to check that HIT is actually still up and running.

Quite impressive Cappie

Hi all!

For some reason, I ended up thinking of this place for the first time in years and years. Has it almost been 12 years already?

Don't play games anymore if I'm honest, life is a lot different now. I'm glad this place is still here though, I had great times here and great times playing HL and all it's mods.

Thanks for the memories!
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?

This place is forever tied to a stressful memory of getting caught browsing it at school when I shouldn't have been.
Title: Re: Is HIT dead?
Post by: Flowers Of Naivety on August 28, 2017, 12:56:55 PM
And like clockwork I randomly check HIT another year later in August. Something ties me to this forum and the month of August...

Life is even better. I'm 32 now, full career employee at USPS now. I've lost even more weight. I guess I'm skinny now and putting on muscle. So that's cool. Had to help my grandmother out since she started goinig downhill, but my crazy mom got involved and convinced my granny to get a restraining order against me lol. So I don't have any guns right now. But now that I've given up all hope for my family I am even happier and stress free. So I've got that going for me which is nice.

Still playing games. Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, Warframe, Brutal Doom, and going to actually finish Red Dead Redemption for once.

Take care everyone.

I wonder what will come first, HL:E or Black Mesa's Xen.
