Default Re: Introduce yourself

Look, what you're about to walk in to will be difficult, but don't despair. SFO has been around for many years and its community understands the game-play rather well. The lag might seem unbearable at time, especially if your computer/internet aren't 100% up-to-par.

But damned if you won't enjoy it once you get the hang of it.

The lag makes SFO so unique, as well as the quick button system that turns Mortal Kombat 9 into Mortal Kombat 3, for a reference you can comprehend. Button mashing actually counts in SFO. You have to be pro at it. The keyboard scheme is flawless in every way, and the game-play is as intense as any platform based game just because of the way the speed and lag actually work together.

SFO was molded to be a perfect game for what its engine can allow; it is flawless in its flawed programming because of the care and devotion put into it, and the countless hours of time spent playing by devoted members like Block himself who went on and actually knew what was wrong with it.

There are still many flaws, but in all the community really does take care of it, as well as the devoted staff that knows just about everything about the game, and a coder, who, despite his own personal difficulties and hardships has still found the time to come in and actually fix **** once and a while.

That means a lot to this simple shockwave based game, built by one man, that could really just disappear and no one would really care in the span of the internet. Guaranteed since 2001.
