urnam0, The Apprentice Scrivener
My favorite online CYOA games are The Paradox Factor, Ground Zero, Necromancer, Eternal, and The Devil's Fire.
"I bring ... death! How dare you try and give me life?"
Author's note: the title of this story is actually The Fire, but someone else already created a storygame with that title, so I couldn't give it the title that I wanted. My second choice for the title was The Light, but another person already took that title as well, so, if you don't mind, just pretend that the title of this story is The Fire.
A story set in medieval China.
Note: Even early on in the game you can lose by making a strategically erroneous choice so choose carefully.
My interpretation of one of my favorite TV shows from childhood: Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? This work is primarily based on the TV game show version rather than the computer game, book, or cartoon versions.
Author's note: Please do not cheat by using the Back button- just remember to Save the game every time you're promoted and Restore if you happen to lose.
P.S. See if you can find all the Easter Eggs!

My guess is that he meant political beliefs and thinks that new games are too woke, so he only plays older games, which he perceives as not being woke.

Well, if Lilith really is your real name, then it would have been interesting to grow up with a name usually associated with an evil demon.

Cool. Sounds like an Indiana Jones movie.

Hello. Is Lilith your real name or just a username? I'm currently writing a screenplay with the working title Lilith.

What's the logline of your screenplay?

>The maze was absolutely pointless. It may work in a video game, but here, forcing players to click random links until they succeed is not in any way something considered fun.

I'm no computer expert myself either, but that's more or less it. It's like each computer only has the capacity to carry a certain amount of work load, every task that your computer is doing adds to its work load, and certain tasks, such as video rendering, can weigh a lot, so, if the computer's total active work load at any point exceeds its capacity, then the computer will lag and freeze involuntarily. If you were only having trouble with playback and the video actually rendered correctly, then I think that makes this explanation more likely, because I had similar issues when I made a music video before on an older computer.

Could it be that your computer's active processes (in particular, the video rendering, which uses a lot of processing power) were overloading your computer's CPU processor or RAM? And the timestamps at which you had placed larger images spiked the processing usage, and the issue fixed itself before when you rendered the video again because your computer had a lower processing usage at that moment?

Now I'm wondering what the title of that story is, because I'd like to read it.
