Rocket Dorf Fest!! - Acknowledgements & Legal Stuff


Many thanks to Bungie Software for creating such a completely cool game! :)

Special thanks to ig98 for the creation of the original Rocket Dwarfs, as wacky as they are they inspired me to create several adaptations and ultimately inspired this conversion, which have provided us with a lot of fun times! :)

Thanks to Korgath of Creation (for creating) and GimpMask of KRO (for adapting and posting) the totally cool
Sak Cannon unit, which has provided us with countless great games. Get it and play with it - it's fun! :)

Thanks to Vinylrake, Two Saks, Lone Dorf, and HedgeSnake for extra feedback in the early versions of RDF!! :)

Special thanks to Vinylrake for extra testing and feedback early-on that inspired the creation of the Water Spiders and for the name "Variety Pak" - very nice! ;)

Special thanks to Lone Dorf for his hilarious "Double Rebound" animated gif from that Sunday Night RDF Match and the accompanying article he wrote about it called "Xdorf Harnesses Mutant Chi"! Hopefully it still exists here, but if not I may have copied it to the ~OoH~ site somewhere! :)

Special thanks to Haravikk for extra replies to my forum postings which helped expand my understanding of collections and color tables. Although I didn't use this information in v1.0, it's very likely I will use it in future releases (v1.1+). Grab his excellent "Myth II Reborn" from the Project Magma HL Server here. Also for helping me with good/evil/ambient assignments for Magma's TFL Solo conversion.

Additional special thanks to Haravikk for taking the time to discover why my Fireballs were not spinning and sending me the fixed files from his Mac! ;)

Thanks to Rabid Wombat for additional feedback on RDF and special thanks to GHOST for help solving the mysterious reinforcements scripting bug that wouldn't work on one mesh of "StoneHeart RDF!!" :D

Thanks to GimpMask for creation of the original "Return to StoneHeart" map and for permission to create my extensive mod of this excellent map just for RDF!!

Very Special Thanks to all the Members of the Order of H'Pak - past, present and future - for playing nearly every week for more than five years, logging 4,500+ games (1,500+ of which are now RDF games!!) - without whom I never would have created this.

Special thanks to the spouses and family members of the ~OoH~ Members for their patience, understanding, and willingness to indulge us all.

And last, a Very Special Thank You to my wife, Linda, for her infinite patience, love and support that made all this possible. Every time you play Rocket Dorf Fest!!, send her a little "Thanks!", as without her it wouldn't have happened and we wouldn't be having all this fun! :)
