Thanks for checking into it. I need to release the source code for those wanting to try their hand at BASIC programing. The DARK BASIC PRO is free. The strategy window part is a pretty nice start. There is also a demo of the Tactical battle simulation part.

I have been out the loop due to surgery. I hope I will be OK later in 4-6 months. I had to stop working on the Rebellion Remake for now due to serious health concerns.

Though, I always seem to live and bounce back. I wish to finish what I started. January 20, 2012 yet another surgery,,yes I know.... life can really throw you a curve. If I survive this one, I will report back.

Else, I did try to the bitter end.

May the force be with you. God bless.

yes. I beat it for 6 years. It was completely removed with kidney, but a few cells got lose as usual. They parked inside the bone marrow inside one, my left shoulder, two inside the maxillary top mandible of my jaw. They are still small and well defined, so it should be able to remove them while they are still tiny and not spread. I think that is the last of it. Renal cell carcinoma is slow growing by nature (originated inside kidney). I hope I do not end up looking like that dude from "The Fly" if they remove too much of my jaw.

I would need to get a Vader helmet/ Sith jaw plate to wear so not to scare people. :wink:

After this, I think I will finally be cleared, very few people survive cancer 10 years of this type. But the survival rate are getting much better due to good CAT SCAN and MRI scanners. It did cost me everything I own, and put me out of work.

But I still enjoy playing computer games! Since I cannot go out and party with the old crowd.

Sorry, I should not mention all this -I do thank everyone for the support. I do always bounce back. This is my fourth surgery.

I will see how well I can type one handed. I do love programming my own game, I wish these computers were around when I was a teenager. I hope I retain most of my arm and hand /nerve control.

Hang in there Slocket. I'm sure the doctors will do their best to get you at your best! :D

Thanks for all the hard work you've been putting into the "new" Rebellion. I'll probably wait 'til it's 99.99% complete before I run it through its paces. That's mainly because I'm slow at using new technology and such, and just plain ole take my own time. Whoever would have thought I could respond to these forums on an ol' vaccuum tube machine and ancient CRT? :lol: :P :mrgreen:

You're a hell of a guy Slocket. If i had cancer i'd proubably be whineing at other people to make a remake of the game, not taking the challenge on myself. :P
I've lost a few family members to cancer, its a tricky disease. I wish you the best of luck.

Hello everyone. thx for your prayers and sentiments. i am still here, Dr's believe i should be OK. i need my arm in sling for 2-4 more weeks + 4-6 months of PT, so i type one handed. hopefully i can be back on station soon enough in a month or so. That is good news so far, only some nagging numbness in ulnar nerve to my little fingers and hand, i hope it gets better. it can be depressing, but i have infinite hope. i really miss not having two hands to type with.

Ulnar numbness could be a result of having your arm in the sling too, if you mean that arm...

Hey Slocket, hope all is going well.

Haven't checked in here for a while. Tested out RebRel0001 and RebTact006. Both worked great on my system.

That little escort carrier can just go back and forth for ever getting hit by that SD :-)

Love ya work
Jez.

Thank you testing it out. All seems to be working as designed for a very alpha test of the engine. I did not have the escort ship explode once hull and shield is zero for testing. I should make an update for it. Still is a great game after all these years.

I am still alive and still recovering slowly. I hope to get back back to doing what I like this Summer. It seems like forever.

Hello Slocket,

I first got here because my brother started playing Rebellion again yesterday and I was looking for a new version, remake or any update on the game for him to play. He loves this game.

I first got to your another thread and was surprised to see that you have been on it for so long. That's not common to see in the modding scene, usually the modders give up or abandon the projects after the first couple years. That's impressive on itself. Even better, I like your work, all of it looks pretty cool!. I will try to test it with my brother, to see how it goes.

Then I got to this thread and read about your cancer. I had to join the forum just to write this. I don't know you, but just as with your project, I'm glad you don't give up. I really hope you get well soon and fully recover!. My brother suffers from a very aggressive form of systemic lupus, which just gets worst every day. I can kinda relate to those kind of illness.

I guess all I can say is: May the force be with you!

Thank you for your sentiments. I am doing better but it is painful. I hope your brother does well. Cancer is a scourge on Earth I hope it can be eradicated some day. It really is unfair and nasty.

My arm is only half use for now. Fun typing. But hey, I am still alive.

As for the game, using a procedural language as Dark Basic it is a bit limiting. I have look at more sophisticated language that use object oriented programming and wonder how to do it. One thing Dark Basic has going for it is the simple programming so you do not need a doctorate to make a game and anyone can contribute looking at the open source code. A problem since many people know so many different OOP languages that are different.

Dark Basic has a ready to go 3D engine. Other languages are very complicated to fit in a 3D engine. Dark Basic pro does not sadly do window forms or multiple windows very well, which is very much need to transmit all the text string data for reading to the user. Well, it means making your own windows and that will take a lot of programing. too much I discover. I would like a computer language that does window forms and has a decent 3D engine. Either procedural or object orientated is OK.

I came across this newer update of a game engine that has been maturing over the years.

http://www.garagegames.com/products/tor ... /1-setup/1 Torque 3D.

It has the latest graphics DX9 stuff, a new 2d and 3d audio engine, and supports Windows forms (a must have for me if a person wants to code this game with in a life time). I am really excited by this prospect. I am evaluating the Torque 3D demo before purchase to see about migrating the project over to it. Torque 3D is an Object Oriented Language, but it is written so much more cleanly (than lets say Game Studio A8 which I tried to no avail)- to understand via script language which is very common. I hope it it a winner. :)

I do hope your brother is around to play this game in the future. If you believe and see yourself as being triumphal it over it, it will come to pass. I suppose in a way it is God, the force, quantum mechanics at play? Good Easter Sunday to you, I wish.

----------------------
It is good he has someone who cares, the truly hardest part of the journey.
