Does anybody here know anything about this?

I’ll admit that both myself and @Vendetta had discussed the idea of something of a similar nature (a specific system for community hosted and rated CoG games as opposed to relying on dropbox), but on my part at least, nothing was ever done about it. I can’t speak for Vendetta, but I’m fairly certain that’s not related to him either.
The only thing even close is this, which I had considered adding things like syntax highlighting to:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7840892/CJW/choicescript/tools/online-cs-tester/mygame/input.html

The only other user I *know* would be capable of such a thing would have been @eposic who lost interest in the site and language some time ago.

I mean no offence, but this looks shockingly amateurish considering his qualifications and experience.

Observation: Final-year student project at University?

Tiny bit of poking around (Like a minute’s worth) turned up this page as who appears to be the user hosting the file on the university’s site (In addition to CJW’s links): http://users.encs.concordia.ca/~cc/
(Just pointing it out because it includes contact info for the actual hoster.)

But other than that I haven’t seen anyone mention anything close to that other than CJW’s testing thing (which he already mentioned).

I found this which seems to hint at where the project originated:

Note: Hexagram concordia are listed as one of the ‘tag teams’ at the bottom.

It seems that choicescript was taught to 20 students. Choiceofgames.com was listed in the article.

Most of these links don’t work anymore. Does anyone know if something happened? Or did their university project just finish?

It’s a pity since I was actually quite excited by the idea of even easier choicescript programming.

@FairyGodfeather I don’t think that any of us were really following it at all. Perhaps someone should see about contacting them to see about it?


#7

@Reaperoa Thanks. I was rather hoping that someone had contacted them already so I wouldn’t need to do battle with the social anxiety monster and try and do it myself.

@Reaperoa How would you contact them? The links don’t work, so I’m a bit curious as to what they’re thinking. Why read one book when you can read two?
