J_J777, its a nice idea, i have thought about this for a long, long time. I just can't think of a decent way to control the diabs in anyway at all, unless you stick with siteswap like the mans chew game(which is really cool) Button combo's is all i can think of. Any other ways would be ridiculously complicated i think. The only other problem is there would be limited tricks, unless you added some kind of trick builder, which would also be very complicated. But its a great idea! I would love to see it happen!

Maybe this subject deserves a new thread....

maybe just maybe one day someone makes it for the wii hehe

Sorry the game got dropped, here it is back again*:
http://www.riddleburger.com/flash/manschew.html

Sadly, the high score function no longer functions. (The scoring never functioned all that well to begin with.) But I find it fun to see how long one can keep 531 going on the 3d setting.

By the way, if you only played the game when I first put it up, there were a lot of improvements. It turned out I didn't know a thing about 3d siteswaps. (And I still don't, but Pete talked me through it.)

While searching my hard drive for the game, I found the Man's Chew video. I hadn't seen it in a while. AFTER 5 YEARS IT STILL ROCKS! Those are old-school new-school moves now, but man they are sublime. Sean had his 2d stuff fluid and tweaked out.

*Let me know if there are any problems. It's working on my machine, but who knows....

That cracks me up every time. I looked again for the photo I took of the wall but couldn't find it. I know I've seen it recently. I'm not sure if I sent it to you at one point. At least I have good body position photos now if you want them from the shirt silhouette shoots.

I throw far better siteswaps in the game than real life! Although I tried and tried and kept failing at 4515141. Yeap, seems pretty realistic. :P

As always, the cursing is a nice realistic touch.

sweet, i never got to play it last time, really fun to work out multiple high throws in a row (with a make believe 360 underneath)

Me, too. I wish i could think of a better, more fluid, way of having the user input the throw number. I'm afraid that if I used the mouse for input, you'd end up throwing a 3 instead of a 4 or whatnot. But it could hardly be more frustrating than the way it works now.

Maybe when Sean does a new video, I'll try to update the graphics and try to fix the controls...

Sorry for a 2 year bump, but anyone who hasn't checked this out, definitely should! Awesome.
Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.

I had no idea it was even still around! Glad a "new generation" is enjoying it.
