    So, no one has written any other games for Wildcat other than wcCasino?

    I see a need to code up some emulators to run old arcade, or C64 style
    games. :) I've already written a C64 emulator, maybe I should turn it into a Nav Client.

    wccasino and wcnav would have been great if the owners still worked on
    it. I think both were made by someone outside mustang and I'm not sure
    what happened to them.

    They were, but the source is available... I worked at MSI, and I don't recall who wrote it off hand, but still, we made all the tools available for people to

    write cool stuff with the Navigator, and nobody has...

    Sad.

    How much?
    but with the way the web side is developing in wins now it might not
    sell very well.

    Ummm, that isn't exactly accurate. I wrote the WCSTrivia game for
    WC5, and sold all of about 10 copies....So, there was at least one
    other navigator game created (other than wccasino).

    I played it a few days ago, too, and had forgotten how cool it was. I was pretty proud of it when I wrote it, and it still holds up pretty well. Too
    bad there wasn't more interest, otherwise I would have enhanced it and
    written more games.....

    Opps, sorry Rob! I stand corrected... :) I guess what I mean, is MSI
    had the idea for multi-user gaming like XBox Live way back when, but
    it's hard to convince game developers to write games for a platform like
    this. However, we DID have some big-wigs from Activision out at our
    campus once, and they were telling us about this new hot game they were writing, but couldn't really share any dirty details with us at the
    time, but we were trying to convince them to write games for Wildcat...
    It's too bad that never went anywhere. Who knows.. Maybe people would
    be playing Guitar Hero over Wildcat today... heh..

    But, in all seriousness, I can't think of what game they were working on
    way back when....

    With all the hype around the WSOP, I bet a Texas Hold'em Nav Client
    would go over prety good right about now. :) Of course, you'd have to
    write a Java based one too, so everyone can use it. But, if you wrote a Windows Native Nav Client that boasted some cool features, I bet people
    would use it.

    In my BBS expierence, I had just the opisite. I set out to make a BBS
    called "Missing Links Network" that was all about Networking (Fido,
    NNTP, and other such networking, back when PPP accounts just didn't
    exist), and as it turned out, all my user wanted to do was tie up all 16
    modems chatting all day... So, we became the local "MySpace", the
    'Booty Call of Bakersfield' if you will. So, we had to shift our trend
    towards chatting. And to this day, the BBS is still up, and I
    notice that not a lot of people use it, but god help me if it goes
    offline! Users start coming out of the woodwork, "Why can't I connect!
    What's going on!?"... It's strange.

    I've been meaning to make a Chat Client that people can run like AIM, or
    MSN, or YAHOO, but with the way things work now, I'be shifted mine to
    more of a Jabber client.

    Problem is, we were an ANSI chat board, and it's REALLY difficult to
    translate what made our chat popular into a Windows client... :(

    But, since Wildcat built my house, bought me my first truck, (not to
    mention made me a rich man back in the 90's), I guess it will always be
    in my blood, and I will always have a place for it in my heart. That's
    why I salaute Hector for taking it on, and belive me. I'd rather work
    for Hector doing Wildcat stuff that working in C#, and ASP.NET that I'm
    doing right now, but we are 3,000 miles apart, and I can't just
    transplant my family.. :(
