Presentation

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have a (pinned) presentation topic where people can introduce themselves. I know we already had one at the old cczone, and most people maybe know who most people are, but some are new! Also, ther are some new nicknames with "old" people behind them and I haven't quite figured out who everyone is...

 

I guess I could start a topic like this myself, but I'm not sure if there already is one?

 

Also, what's this first and second rule about?

I'm geodave and I'm a major Lynxophile. I make a lot of crappy levels and a few good ones, and will kill you all if I don't get at least one level into CCLP1. Oh, I'm also the Speaker for the CCLP1 staff (until they kick me off) and working on various other secretive projects.

pb_guy here. I am 60. A fundamentalist christian who believes the bible in a totally literal sense, including the age of the earth being between 6 and 10 K years old. I did 6 years in universities, including Dr. Suzuki's genetics classes at UBC. I am a biologist, recently retired from a forestry research station in BC, Canada where I maintained our computer systems, wrote specialty software for our station needs, wrote our emergency procedures and safety manuals, and grew trees from "improved" seed, both our own breeding stock, and for specialty contracts to other private forestry agencies. I had my private pilots license since 1976, and own a historical (1963) homebuilt Smith Termite(CF-PGG), which I am hoping to donate to a museum. Currently, I am grandfather and part time caregiver to a delightful 5 year old who just started her first year of school.

PB stands for PowerBasic, my compiler of choice. I stumbled across chips in the Microsoft Entertainment pack in the 80's. I finished the original set about 3 times before I found out about this group. I have played a lot of levels others have designed. I have looked in now and again on the CC community. I lost my password somehow to the yahoo group, and can't get it back because I have changed email providers. I have designed a few levels. Recently I have made some more, and hope to get around to putting all of them in a single set, about 35 total, once I work some more bugs into them. :)

Hey everyone! This is Flareon350, also known by my actual name, Josh, and also a side nickname "Flame" (which all of you didn't know). I'm a 20 year old central Californian person who sometimes acts weird and such (which is normal to me) I'm a big Chip's Challenge and Pokemon fan for I have played both since I was 8 and wish to combine both of these into something amazing!

 

I only recently started LPing CC sets back in late August of 2011, the first one being the infamous CCLP2. The LP itself was semi-blind as the many years beforehand I seen many AVI solutions to many of the levels but never actually played the set itself.

 

Now I am currently LPing CCLP3 which isn't blind at all (but I know I'll fail at some point in the upcoming levels) and also 2 custom sets: BHLS1 & BigOto Returns, which are 2 of the greatest sets I've ever played!

 

I also have LPed many other games, including a special type of run in Pokemon Platinum, Pac-Man World 3, Paper Mario 2: The Thousand-Year Door, Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. I plan to LP many other games aside from CC in the near future!

 

I've also made about a good 500 levels of CC, though only around 350 exist, and have been divided up into 3 different sets of mine [JoshL1, JoshL2 & JoshL3] and hope that some will be voted into CCLP1 and the future CCLP4.

Hello, I'm Markus. I am a big fan of the Zelda series and have recently become interested in Chip's Challenge again. I spend a lot of time creating CC levels, I have made nearly 50 so far. I sometimes play competitively. I also enjoy music and racket sports.

I was brought up as a christian and converted to atheism when I was about 10. I live in Aberdeenshire, in Scotland.

As many of you all know, I am BigOto2 on YouTube and do Let's Plays of CC sets such as CCLP3, CC1, and many other custom sets. In reality I am Trevor Hedges, and am 15 years old as of this post. I am atheist as well, and while I certainly don't bash certain religions or beliefs, I refuse to immediately believe anything that is not backed up with reasonable explanation (however my mother is Buddhist and believes in karma and tons of other weird Gods which I fail to even comprehend).

 

I was infamous for my many angry rants about level designing in my LP of CCLP3; I wish people would forget about it all because I've come back around on a lot of it. I do other YouTube let's plays such as Minecraft, Mario Kart 7, and Portal 2. I also created what I think is a really great custom CC set: BigOto Returns. It is my only good set in my history here, many years ago I made a bunch more levels back in 2006 but most of the levels were crappy and outright stupid/embarrassing ideas.

 

A lot of people here seem to hold a grudge against me for no reason (well maybe for my pointless anger at certain CCLP3 levels, but that time has long past), so I hope I don't seem that bad for those who are just joining us.

 

Also, COME OUT CC2, WHEREVER YOU ARE! (for those who don't know, the guy who originally created CC made a CC2 but not before he sold CC to Microsoft and lost the rights, thus he cannot release it in it's current form.)

Andrew Bennett, alias The Manipulator General, and also masquerading as jybt, quadrupleplay, SyndicCalls404, Octavarium64, bethlehem316 and outprogged42. I've been an active Chipster mostly since I was 11, though I played since I was around 5, and have attained high rankings in CC1 and CCLP2, also holding the top spot in CCLP3 until the rest of the world caught up; my work here has also included much of the CC Wiki, ChipWiki, other strategy guides, AVI solutions, shameless CC promotion and two levelsets, one of which should probably have combustible lemons thrown at it and one of which still needs somebody to play it.

I am also known nowadays as the Chip's Challenge world's leading promoter of progressive metal, to the chagrin and/or good-natured derision of certain posters; my top five bands are currently Dream Theater, Pantommind, Redemption, Riverside and Zero Hour. I find this style of music, based in freedom of expression, nonconformity to traditional song structures, lyrical themes and instrumentation, contrasting moods (with the heaviness factor of metal an additional dimension as such) and exploitation of technical proficiency in the process of creating original works, speaks to my own perspective on life: a roller coaster of emotions, feelings and moods that, though it is immensely difficult at times, can be overcome through faith, will, perseverance and spirit, and what awaits afterwards is well worth whatever trials and tribulations compose the journey.

 

On that particular note, I also stand out in the CC community as one of its most openly Christian members, which has been increasingly true in recent weeks, and thus this cannot be left unexplained for the initiated and the muggles. Like a surprising number of Chipsters, I have Asperger's Syndrome, and though I count myself blessedly lucky to have been surrounded by a reasonably well-to-do family, been specially treated by a majority of my teachers, and raised within a supportive church, my condition has been a source of imposing difficulty. My life definitely was not under control for much of my childhood, and threatened to spiral out of control until, within my confusion and dissatisfaction, I finally started to seek God as a real being, not just the indifferent guardian of the universe. That process slowly deepened for years until recently, around October 2011 when it finally converged into a true revival, the combination of searching for concrete, rational reasons for my belief and learning enough about spirituality to truly connect with God. (What those reasons are is for another topic.) From there on, I have trudged through even more arduous challenges, but continually manage to crumble each barrier, and I sigh in wonder each time something new happens; my dreams are becoming fulfilled, one by one, in the perfect time. This is the brief version, and my story of dramatic change and restoration is best contextualized within the CC community: my epiphaneous personal shift has begun to squeeze out less important worldly activities, with Chip's Challenge high on the list. My years-long obsession with competitive play disappeared in mere weeks, the CC Wiki and ChipWiki still gather dust, and my activity on the newsgroup is almost nil. This is mainly because I have comprehended the shallowness of my dreams in comparison to the future awaiting me on the vine. I won't leave the community for some time, because the memories are too precious and the game and your friendship has been instrumental in forming my unique personality, but I'm definitely more of a lurker than I've ever been in years.

 

I may wish I hadn't spent so much time fruitlessly burning myself out on random or boosting levels, I may wonder why so much untapped talent has been imprisoned within me because of my condition, and I may wonder why I was allowed to suffer through so much and often learn the hard way, but wiser eyes have honestly retrospected to find the resulting greater good and ultimate reason behind every major misfortune, and I wouldn't have changed any of it. The list of awe-inspiring successes and victories is too consistent for me to believe I won't scale the numerous hurdles still remaining, especially with the source of my strength behind me every day, and that there isn't a reason why hurdles have been permitted to impede my path. I'm a person who finds strength in weakness, lessons in failure, and light in darkness, and my life story is all about these balances. Someone who truly understands me will come away a wiser individual, and that's one of the chief lessons I seem meant to teach the world. I hope you have enjoyed this brief insight into, and explanation of, who and where I am now. The Manipulator General signing out.

Hello everyone! My name is Andy, as in Andy Baker, however, sometimes people call me "Endy" because of pronunciation, I was kind of tired of having "Hash" (or Hash1 in this case) as a nickname, but it was not because I didn't like it. I am 16 years old right now. I was born in Spain and have lived in the US, now I live in Spain.

 

About me And Chips, I first played when I was five, I had it with the BOWEP, then almost forgotten about it until I was 12, I later also found out about making your own levels. I first heard about CCZone (the old one) on Mike L's site two years ago. I like making Chip's Challenge levels, well, sometimes it's hard for me to make a good one, but I try, I also like making custom tilesets, oh, and I'm (still) working on my first set, it's not released because I'm not spending as much time as I'd like to on Chip's Challenge either because of daily routine, laziness, or lack of inspiration, but I'll see what I can do.

 

Interests? I like rap, rock, heavy metal, pop, and house music. I also like games besides CC, such as old school mario, sonic, some nintendo games, challengo, monopoly, some playstation 2 games, and some computer games.
