Any OG’s from the original Resource still here?
#1
Hey guys. Been a ripper for years and years when I was younger. Just wondering how the original spriters resource peeps are doing. Best times of my life back then and had some decent friends like Ton but I do remember being an ass and having bad times with people. That was rough but I was younger and dumber. I think that’s a natural part of life. Live and learn right? Not sure if originals are still around lol would be cool to catch up.

Boo? That's a name that I haven't heard in a long time... Anyway welcome back and yeah, we tend to do stuff like that when we're younger. I don't remember you being that bad though (as there are people far worse these days and a case of reflecting of the times) but glad that you got better over the years.

As for myself... Not feeling well and getting worse especially from last year and this year. Something on a private matter and not sure myself but can tell that I feel like an old person in my seventies... My peak is long gone. My interest in gaming has declined getting rid of more games and consoles than buying, as an example got rid of my original Xbox recently and the Wii U is the next to go. From the way things are going, next year will probably end up only getting a few games and slimmed down my collection some more.

In terms of ripping only come back more recently but it is really just getting the unripped games down. Helping Ton out on the SNES Ripping Project, doing a few Mega Drive, Arcade, NES and Game Boy rips along the way. Even then they have been smaller in scale due to health issues and not sure how long left. Plus times have changed with people using stuff like Discord meaning that forums like this are a relic of a different time. e.g. a few years ago, the SNES Ripping Project would have been really active like the NES one but now, it's just a few. Then again don't use social media.

There's not many of the originals left I'm afraid outside of Dazz, Ton and RTB. Deathbringer has become a staff member, seen Smithy pop up now and again but apart from that they have moved on. Most of the members and regulars by comparison are kids and some that come here literally are. If we're talking the original OG (as in the ninsprites/Pixeltendo days), think it's just Ton.

Damn Yawackhary, it’s been at least 8 years. I’m sorry to hear that you’re not doing the greatest and I really hope things look up for you. ❤️ I still have a huge interest in gaming but it’s more of a mental thing than a want. I still collect and game and stuff but have slowed down a bit as I’ve aged.

I do miss ripping but I feel like that time of my life has passed maybe. Who knows maybe come back to it eventually.

I remember Smithy being one of the best spriters to ever exist honestly. Dazz, Ton and RTB are OG’s I miss too. I was on this site when I was 18/19 and I’m 29 now so a lot has changed. But wanted to catch up and see how some originals were doing. Pixeltendo brings good memories lol

Welcome back! I joined a little late in the game so I'm not as familiar with all of the oldies as you might be but just FYI, all four of the quoted members are still around and active Smile

I joined mid-2011 so tail-end of the Pixeltendo/early tSR golden boys era. I’m often super nostalgic for those days as well, so I know how you feel, despite also being a dumb lil dummy idiot kid. Definitely part of growing up. Character development and whatnot.

As the others said, most of the members from a decade+ ago (holy crap, time really does fly) aren’t active anymore, but even so, it’s always a ride down memory lane just visiting, frankly.

I WILL NEVER DIE
Tsunami Bomb - The Simple Truth
We could run away
Leave behind anything paper
Not knowing where we're going to stay
When there's no Mondays

You're part of me, it's so easy to see the simple truth
When I'm in your arms, I feel safe from harm and sorrow too
You're part of me, it's so easy to see the simple truth
But most of all, nothing couldn't be solved when I'm with you

I need a new computer… haven’t had one for a long time but if I get one in the next year or so I’ll definitely start again. Missed those days..
