Drama / Re: Plastiware was arrested for child research
« on: January 19, 2023, 09:50:40 PM »
how does this translate to "images of young children being raped"

It really doesn't.

Im a firm believer in rehabilitation versus incarceration, but theres an expectation of accountability you gain from that, of which I see very little in this. I would like you to clarify - is this like an apology or are you telling us why your accusations are ok?

Im grateful that you are seeking help via therapy and I will keep you in my thoughts because you I know society doesnt like to look at things it finds grotesque. That said, reading this made my stomach turn. Reading this didnt overwhelm me with reassurance, and I instead felt bad for you, which makes me question why this seems to be framed as an apology??

those child anime research drawings contribute to a market of creepphilic materials, and i can bet you that those super vague 'images of nudists' yeah theyre probably nudists but i bet some were children. Hopefully Im disproven, but I dont get a good vibe from that post at ALLLLL

I'm not proud of it, but children were among the images of nudists and I probably should have been more clear about that.  This is why I made it very clear that this was not an okay thing.  Still, I do not believe that my arrest, conviction, and sentence were fair given the circumstances.  Regardless, I had some unresolved issues that I'm glad have been straightended out.  Not really an apology so much as a clarification as to where I am, what I've done, and how I've paid my debt to society.

Hello.  I'd like to clarify some things, particularly the timeline of events.  Unfortunately, OP's research is correct.  In February of 2020 I was arrested because I had some loli and images of nudists on a laptop that the police had previously taken as evidence.  This is apparently enough to convict someone of attempt to possess CP in Colorado.  I am not saying that this is okay.  If you have any tendencies toward this kind of thing, seek help.  Talk to someone you can trust about this.  I guarantee there is someone in your life who will listen.  At any rate, at no point did I ever abuse or seek to abuse anyone, let alone any minors.  In July I was slapped with a protection order, forbidding me from contact with anyone under 18, which is why I was pretty scarce and cagey for the rest of that year.  The courts were slow due to COVID, and it took until January of 2021 for me to be sentenced.  I got two years on probation, no jail, which should tell you that what I had wasn't that bad.

As part of probation, I had to register as a love offender, re-registering every year on my birthday.  This is why the registry currently says May 2022, simply because that was my last birthday.  I'm still on the registry, but I'm going through steps to be removed.

Probation was strict.  Early on, I couldn't handle the changes to my life, and I attempted Self Delete.  This resulted in me being hospitalized for a month and unable to walk for much longer.  I'm almost fully recovered now, but I'm still going through physical therapy for strength and pain relief.

My probation ended earlier this week, and I've been gathering the courage to address this situation.  I've served my sentence and been through therapy, and now I'd just like to be able to move on with my life.

I have no intention of retiring the names Plastiware or Reid VanBemmel, or any creative works that I've already publicly revealed.

Faces, Decals, Prints / ModTer 8-Bit Expansion Pack

6 years ago I created a NES-inspired print pack that became somewhat popular.  I come to you now with 107 new prints designed to be compatible with the first 38.  Suitable for a wide range of themes.



These prints will work on their own, but they'll be missing the original 38 if you don't download and enable Part 1.  Get that here:

General Discussion / Re: we found badspot's stock sound effect cd
« on: May 20, 2020, 08:27:13 PM »
Breaking my long forum silence to chip in a little extra information.  I was on Badspot's Block Party many years ago and asked where After School Special is from, and he told me it's from a royalty free CD he got in 1997.  This CD is from 1998.  There are two explanations:

1. Badspot remembered the wrong year.  It happens.

2. Badspot really did get that CD in 1997, possibly one that had been printed 1996 or earlier, and this 1998 CD is a later version of that one.  Thus, that CD would be the true source of many of Blockland's sounds and music, and likely that one 1996 song that samples Ambient Deep, too.

Server Info

I got a ways into this and I don't think I like it that much.  It's trippy and interesting, but there's way too much focus on precision platforming, whereas Banjo's enjoyability has always been more in exploring and solving problems.

Been working on this for a while, I think it's coming along nicely.

Apologies; this was a knee-jerk reaction to an implication that I don't deserve anything for my efforts, which came as the one thing that finally crossed the line for me after the harsh nature of the previous comments.  I've spent a lot of time and effort over the past few years designing, developing, polishing, and tweaking this game demo to represent the final product, should I ever get there, as closely as possible, and the fallout from posting here on BLF was extremely disheartening.  I didn't mean to sound like I was ignoring criticism entirely, that one thing just set me off.  I'm sorry I ended up lashing out in a way that just made me sound entitled.

i feel like this game could have potential if you flesh out the current mechanics but with its current state i feel like trying to monetize this is a really bold decision

So you honestly think that despite the fact that I have spent the last two years pouring my heart and soul into this game, I deserve zero compensation for all the time and effort I've put into it?  forget you.  People like you are the reason the games industry has a reputation for being a toxic hellhole.

getting Trojan:Win32/Azden.A!cl on windows defender

windows defender read it as a virus

False positive.  It's a Game Maker game.  The worst it does is read and write a few text files in the game's sub-folders.

Whelp, I accidentally hit "post" instead of "preview".  Please wait while I work on OP some more.

I've been kind of a stranger around BLF lately, but some of you may remember me posting development screenshots and gifs of this game, and random stuff of this character.  The public demo is finally out, so I figured this game could use its own thread.

Chatters the Squirrel is a platform game for Windows inspired by the great platformers of the 16-bit era.  All the design, programming, art, and music is by me.  The demo contains the entire first world, with 10 levels and two boss fights.
