Hi there, I'm Alex, and I created the site.

Unfortunately, I don't really visit much these days (my day job is in front of a computer all day), but I do my best to ensure the server is running. I'll occasionally check out storgames (thanks for making them, by the way, I love them).

If there are any urgent server problems, please contact me via the contact form or email me direct at apapadimoulis - at - inedo - dot - com.

I really can't help with site administration or moderation issues though.

Locked Out (The Movie)

Note: You will need to enable the Windows Media Player add-on for this storygame to function correctly.

Don't ya just hate it when you get locked out of your house and have to figure out how to get back in? Well, now experience it as a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Movie!  Help me (Alexp) get back in to my house!

Warning: this is our team's first movie. And I'm doing the acting.


Locked Out (The Movie) Episode Three

Note: You will need to enable the Windows Media Player add-on for this storygame to function correctly.

It's time once again to help me (Alex P) get back in my house. Don't worry, this time it'll be very easy. And short.

I actually have my key this time ...


Locked Out (The Movie) Episode Two

Note: You will need to enable the Windows Media Player add-on for this storygame to function correctly.

Help me, Alex P, find my way back in my house. Again.

Featured Story The Proposal

The RingYou play as my girlfriend (Katrina T) and find out what it's like to be proposed to by your boyfriend of five years. This is actually a true story and really happened. Don't worry, there's no way to lose and all paths lead to the same place. But it's a fun story no less.

Thanks JJJ!

And thanks everyone for continuing to make great content despite having such an ancient site.

 


New Site Guidelines on 8/25/2015 9:08:25 AM

yes

I hope to return to get the site a little more accessible, modern someday; in the mean time, thanks all (especially 3J, Seth, BZ) for keeping the content awesome.


So, the storygame bug is back... on 7/6/2015 10:23:00 PM

Looks like I missed a CInt.

Fixed!


So, the storygame bug is back... on 7/5/2015 12:53:22 PM

Thanks; I replaced every CInt() with CLng().

In case you're wondering why this all of a sudden was a problem...

CInt() converts text to an Integer number, but when I originally wrote that code (2003?) I didn't realize/consider that it was "only" a 16-bit integer. This means the number has a max value of 32,767... and the "StoryGameID" finally exceeded that value.

So, that's a lot of storygames :)


Can't Make a New Storygame on 7/4/2015 3:43:48 PM

thanks fixed!


v20150001 Update on 1/25/2015 9:29:24 PM

Sorry all, been caught up with everything else lately... but just wanted to fix a couple really annoying bugs -- the Duel and image Upload thing. So, that's what's in this update. Cheers!


v20140011 Updates on 7/6/2014 9:33:01 PM

Some minor bug fixes that should end some big annoyances, including the "PM that can never get unread"....

... also the length calculations have changed. @JJJ-thebanisher can provide more details (and will hopefully see this notice).


Names with Dashes don't get forum tag notification on 6/21/2014 3:29:12 PM

FYI, I used a RegEx to do the matching, so it's only looking for @ plus string of alpha-numeric chars. Just need to add "dash" in as a valid matching character.


Readjust Length Calculation on 6/20/2014 7:21:41 PM

Well, judge for yourself! I'll email the spreadsheet and the code (which hopefully isn't that bad to follow), at least to see what it does with the #s
