How long have you been a part of this community? How old were you? How did you find the game and MM2C?
I joined a few months ago, but I'm still 14 as I was then. Found the game whilst looking for game videos on YouTube, and MM2C is what I found when I searched on Google for 'MM2 Bus Downloads', like a lot of others!

What are your fondest memories?
Have loads already, mainly the arguments and jokes.

How did participating here affect your life?
I found more people like me; bus enthusiasts, and people who like MM2.

How long have you been a part of this community? How old were you? How did you find the game and MM2C? I have been a part of this community for about a year and a half. I was 12 when i joined, but I was looking through the forums since I was 10. Wink I found the game through MM1. I have no idea how I found MM2c.

What are your fondest memories?

10 years?! Really?

I have been here as bluefox since 2003, and I had another username before that going back to 2001 or so, but who knows what that one was. Clearly, this one was more memorable.

I don't think I have actually sat down and played MM2 for 5 years (part of the reason being I've mostly been a Mac person during my life and haven't really touched any PCs since the last time I played MM2 or Medal of Honour... something along those lines).

Having met Rippance in person I can say I made a great friend that I make sure to visit every time I'm in the Netherlands. I also met a few other MM2Cers like Geof, who is a super cool kid. Making friends, like others are saying, is definitely one good thing I think came out of being part of this site.

Oh, and the game was fun too.

10 years..... wow...

I came here in "03 and started my time here with a bit of a bang and almost a ban. Good times.. Razz

I was 12 when I first signed up here. I found out about MM2 by browsing the internet trying to find games. NFS was one of my favourite series at that point but I then moved onto MM2. It was easy to find sites related to MM2 at that point and so I found MM2C.

My fondest memories are seeing some of the projects and comaraderie that went on here. Barely anything else like it.

Participating here has affected my life in so many ways. The easiest way to explain it is... I'm making this post from Tim's macbook in Legoguy's basement. We're hoping to also see Awesys and Aphot (originally samthemm2racer) tomorrow evening. Later this summer I hope to meet Roadie/Roadhog... and hopefully sometime in the near future see Bluefox again!

MAN!
Did I miss the glory days of mm2c. Sad HMM. I hope things get a little better and people who ask for stuff just make that stuff and become mm2 legends! Smile Back on topic.

How long have you been a part of this community? How old were you? How did you find the game and MM2C?
In my first year of high school I met RPA who lured me into a high-latency, unstable, serial cable multiplayer session of MM1. The damage was done. A few months later MM2 was released and there went my youth.

At BTWR I was mostly lurking. The field of city editing was ridden by a counter-productive culture of secrecy, where people joined together in teams and kept their information to themselves. But when fre_ber appeared out of nowhere with detailed information about the PSDL format, things got interesting and I eventually began contributing.

What are your fondest memories?
  • "Will it have a dash?"
  • "memMemoryAllocator::FindHeap failed on ptr [random addr]
  • Finding the cause of the PSDL façade bound fiasco.
  • fre_ber's insane Stockholm project.
  • CnR LAN multiplayer with my friends.
  • CnR internet multiplayer with fre_ber(!) after getting the Manhattan map playable.
  • Getting flamed by JoeShmo for discussing MM2 in #mm2c.

How did participating here affect your life?
It got me into reverse engineering. Basically all my spare time programming projects today fall into this category.

I have been a member of the Midtown Madness community since 1999 when I was very young. I started playing online through MSN; after a short while I became a part of the "Members Plus" on the Zone. After a while, I took over as webmaster for Midtown Motors before real life ultimately consumed all of my time. Even though I played MM2 and was a member of the the community, I wasn't as active (and known) as I was in the MM1 community.

And I know MM2c because it was the only site I really visited when MM2 came out and was popular!

I randomly typed in some old websites I used to visit and was surprised to see this still up and running!

So good to see this site still around. I remember all of the sleepless nights working with Jason to get everything from the physical server built to writing the thousands of lines of codes that brought that whole network online.

Good to see that there's still pieces of that work in existence somewhere!

I had a proper holy **** moment when I got your message! Awesome to hear from you Smile We're still around, now almost 12 years later. Crazy eh?

Edit:
For the people who have no idea who schmim is, he was the system administrator of the BTWRacing network -- the birth place of MM2C and many other sites.

@schmim, I tried to reply to your e-mail, but it bounced.
