So this is what little i've got left of my source and what I could salvage. 1 is the entire sourcecode to project alpha, the other is a copy of dmnb v1's server in source form, just a month or 2 after launch. Importent notes are as follows if people really, really wanna do something with it.
Project alpha requires pure tts and an eax capable soundcard. Because this archive was originally ment to go to the audio games archive and because I made some small attempt to update it, the sounds are missing. I really can't be half assed the effert of putting them back in, nore will pure tts or eax/freesl work on my system so updating this one is next to impossible anyways. You take responsibility for putting the sounds in yourself and updating the code.
I do not have the client code to dmnb v1 anymore. Someone else from our dropbox folder mess of 60 something members may have it, the code was modifyed live in the folder before being compiled and pushed out. So if they have it, feel free to happily post a link. This server as previously stated is from a month or 2 after launch, bugs and glitches included. You take full responsibility running this. Want my advice which you don't, don't run this thing on low end hardware. Or at the very least do some optomizing. I have no idea just exactly what features are even included, I had to contact someone who was fortunit enough to make a backup of the server to even get a hold of this thing but from my knolige, the basics are all their, as well as teleporters and the like.
Both projects were developed using pure basic. How you obtain a copy of pure basic as its still camersially available is up to you.
Technical support. No technical support of any kind will be provided. I do not wish to be contacted. You wanted your games back, you have em back. Eat it or beat it, I couldn't cair less, they're your headake now, not mine. The only thing I have to say is... good luck... and so long.

Uh...reread post 1 folks. It's all on you. You fix this up. You make it work. And you fix it when it breaks and falls over. Cause, ya know, it's going to

Lol no, we can't play it. Not yet, at least.
In an ideal world (and this is according to my point of view), this code source will allow someone to say pick it up and resume development of the game.

Hi.
So sad to hear they are now discontinued. Now, lets hope any child doesn't get the source code and start a drama like the one on the killer or whatever.
Btw, I have a backup of the latest client, the one of experimental space stations. Do you think it'll work? It's not the sourcecode, however. Hope someone posts it over here.
Again, it's a sadness to remember what happened with the thing, I was a devoted player in the past and... well yeah, basically that lol.
Take care...

I still wander what the heck happened to Danny. Things just suddenly went down, and he gave up on everything. I'm not able to get any of this up and running. Not at all. I have no clue on how to work with the sourcecode. If I had, I didn't had the time and energy to keep something running like he did.

No. He clearly write that he do not want to be contacted for some reason. I think we need to respect that. I think this is sad, because Danny have always been really nice to me then I wrote to him in private messages etc. Yes, it was game related and we were not close friends or anything like that. But he was really nice. I think he just got enough of gaming and the community in generel, and don't wanna be contacted, but choose to keep his close friends and just enjoy life without the community. However, that's what I think, but I could be wrong...

Hi,
Danny, i know myself, and a lot of others will be very greatful for what you did. I agree the dmnb1 client would be nice, i never really got to play it because it was gone more or less a day after i started figuring it out. I do know someone who *might* have it, maybe even a slightly newer version than the one danny posted, but we’ll see.

Hi Danny.
You probably don't remember me because it's been ages, but I used to hang out on dmnb and in the old dropbox folder. I had some good times, and you taught me a lot! I'm sorry things went down the way they did, but I hope you don't give up on developing games or software completely.

@post 14 Then if you still have a copy of the client source or that folder feel free to just upload it and post the link. @post13 I have no intrest in interacting with new faces. I don't know you, I don't oh you, I don't want to be contacted. If you've got something to say, say it on the forums, that's the only place you'll get a message through to me if I even read it. @post 11 Noone in this community is a friend of mine as much as they would like to say how close they are, and i'm getting a little sick of everyone assuming they're close friends or best friends or whatever when you don't know me in reel life, you haven't grown up with me, you don't know my history, you played games with me and we talked, that's it. I'm noone's friend, i'm not a friend of the blind community nore am I apart of it, nore do I want to be. Anything else is strictly personal and my biznis. You guys are simply an audiance for the material I produced. That's all you guys have been, that's all you'll ever be. @post14 again, you'll never know if I develop any games unless I come on here announcing my latest release because I won't attach my name to the project. Don't think of me as a friend. Think of me as some anonomus worker you don't know.

@15
Way to treat someone who did nothing wrong to you and even reminded people you didn't want to be contacted like shit for no good reason, he already said you weren't close, no need to rub it in.
Not to mention, painting us all with the same brush. I understand that the decent people here are still the minority, but you were the one who always bragged about having a thick skin, and right now you sound nearly as bad as the people who kept messing with you.
What ever the hell happened specifically to push you over the edge and make you this bitter, I'm pretty sure much of it was magnified in your own head. Plus, you can blame us all you want for forcing you to come out of the woodwork, but your the one that removed all the games from the archive initially and started this, which is on you and you alone, though I appreciate that you reconsidered.
It's unfortunate that you worked your self to death on a free game instead of delegating or slowing down and not promising things you couldn't deliver, tried to use coding as an escape from your real world responsibilities (we've basically all done similar) but chose to make multiplayer games and involve the community at large in development, and then let the assholes get to you, and you didn't have to. yeah, their still assholes, but it's your responsibility to look after numero uno as well.
No one forced you to update the sourcecode either, some people just asked if anyone had it, so you can stop with the acting as if your some kind of martyr for gracing us unworthy scum with your presents once more.
Thanks anyway though for sharing it, bitter sweet as it is, and I'm sorry you hate this community so much now, it's certainly not the greatest for devs. I'd like to say I'm glad your doing better after separating your self from it, but clearly your not, so instead I'll wish you luck getting over it and improving your mental wellbeing instead.
And, thanks again for getting me into Futurama.
Honestly though, all the best man and I hope your home situation has improved, despite how I may feel about how your acting currently, and I hope you never lose that spark of imagination. I think you could be a good shortstory/web serial writer or fanfiction author if you wanted.

@defender, your not helping the situation, you know, by being an asshole yourself. Way to go, hypocrite. Danny had his reasons. That exact attitude is why he painted the community with the hole brush. That is why he left. He's only posting the source code because he has nothing else to do with it, and honestly, I can't blame him for not wanting to release it since I doubt anyone would be able to do anything with it. Of course, it doesn't help that its hilarious how you throw around baseless accusations in post 18 as though you knew what Danny was doing and how he thought at the time. Thanks for the laugh.

@post18 First off, if you knew anything about me, you'd know game development was something I wanted to do as a career as a kid. Its not like my dislike for the community is exactly hidden either, so i'm doing a tarible job at being a marter in your own words, nore was it exactly hidden when I started to begin with. Pluss, its a pretty tarible choice to escape into. 1, because my mom and brothers are hardcore gamers themselves. 2, I suck ass at most games mainstreem games included. Why the hell would I want to escape into something i'm not all that grate at to begin with, is their some self loathing I should be aware of and that I should get checked out? And lastly on this front, if you knew anything about my past interactions on muds/online games, before dmnb got developed in the firstplace, you'd know that I rairly, if ever, go out of my way to communicate with people on said games, unless i'm spoken too, this was why I stopt playing multiplayer games on a regular basis and took down my youtube channel in the firstplace. I can enjoy games fine with out being informed how much I suck ass or trolled thanks.
That said? Yes. It was used to help me with social skills. Specificly with the community I paintbrushed over in the firstplace, so its not like I curled up in a little ball and didn't give it a shot at trying to like the community in the firstplace.
Also, your one to talk about assholes I surround myself with, seeing as you yourself have acted like one, you yourself even said I should have still been mad at you after the last time you had a flameout. I hate to tell you but not everyone can just go get up and say, i've changed, i'm gonna go out and do something different, i'm gonna go get new friends. I haven't changed myself or learned a single thing so their you have it, happy? Even if you vollinteer for something, even if you choose to do something willingly, you don't always have the option of backing the hell out. What was I supposed to do with dmnb, tell everyone 5 months in when the bug reports rolled in sorry guys, I can't manage this on my own, i'm done kay thanks by loooool? For the record, I suck at writing storys to begin with. Project alpha was a one time thing, developed at a time when I was into dead space. I didn't want to spend my entire life writing the same generic copy paste dead space formula, specially since the game was designed to be absolutely nothing more than a dead space clone. Yes, your right in that I can't handle running online games, and I thought I could at the time dmnb was launched, and it took me longer than usual to finally accept it. That still didn't mean that I could just happily pull out while their were still players on the game to begin with.
Before you go crittisizing how I act, go take a look at your own reactions as to when I pulled the games down to begin with. Your the one who said they were unfinished/mostly crap then complained they were not available. You don't get to do that, so please, don't say you apreciate me reconsidering since they're trash, after all.

@20
We get that dude, everyone has problems in their lives. I do, too, some very very very intense ones, which i do not intend to share on this forom at all, and neither do i expect you to do so. But, taglining the whole community as a bunch of assholes, er, a bit harsh no? I mean, its been quite a while since dnmb's developement was stopped, and after that many new people joined our little community here.(me being one of them) not trying to say that everone of them is decent, nor begging to be friends with you, all i'm trying to say is, do you know everyone in this community?  if yes, go and describe one thing that you dont like about more than 700 people loool. heck, even one word will do. there, as i expected. Like i said, i agree the community hasn't been like it used to be, but still man. The fact of the matter is what part of the community you knew(and are claiming) to be assholes was probably only what, 1 third of the total members? So there. i'm not saying that you gave up too soon, or that you were an asshole to leave, everyone has their own reasons. And i'm good with that. Totally. but at least please dont do what you did in post 15. its like you're blaiming this community for everything that happened in your life.
But if you still think that what you did is perfectly fine, then, well, what can i say...
Good luck. is what. tongue. but really though. i mean it, good luck with what you do, and with your life as a whole.
@19:
I agree that @18 was a little harsh as well but there are always better ways to express yourself. by better i mean, a little more, er, kind? possitive? i mean, why do we need to start a brawl on every single thing. One of the main reasons of so much drama in the community.
Usually i just suck in the drama going on here and use it as a means for a hearty  laugh when i can't find good jokes anywhere else on the internet, but just thought that  this topic was, indeed, wirth posting because i didn't exactly appriciate danny's atitude. Again, not trying to bash down any specefic topics, all i mean to say is that i didn't know what much to say so just thought i'd have a read, get what useful info i could, and move on.
anyways, peace

Unfortunately I think I had v1's source code on my other computer, but that appears to finally have said "I'm done" and flipped it's shit. No, more like... given up and told me to fuck off.
  Also guys this behavior is... very bitter and weird yes, but I do think there is a reason for it. I knew this guy mostly closely... or maybe not? In the past, and well I don't really blame him for it completely, though that's not to say I don't hold him at least somewhat accountable and am not sorely disappointed in the way he is choosing to behave. After all, this is a nearly 22 year old man with whom we are speaking; one who would've had the potential to become something had he tried. @Ethin while I can appreciate you sticking up for your friend, lashing back out at post 18 probably wasn't the best idea.
  In terms of this code, however, I would not get your hopes up guys. I was in close communication with Danny at the time of DMNB version 1, and the number of memory leaks, lag spikes, and errors was insane. No one could seem to fix them. Not to mention, the dude was only coding in pure basic for what, a month when he started this? So the code he's putting here, if I'm reading right, is code he wrote 3 months after starting with pure basic. I would not have too much faith in it. I see why he released it, as some kind of move for closure, but believe me this is not some revolutionary game framework you just have to mod a little bit and get running. Please don't bother trying to get it working unless you are that, bored.

Ok, I think it's time I also gave a voice to this discussion. @22 I'm pretty apawled that you can throw such accusations out there and simply generalize everyone in this community because of a few individuals who don't understand the meaning of "shut the fuck up". I think I'll have to address your points one by one here:

Please, if you could provide proof to me of every community member doing this at least once in their lives, I will retract my statement. But until now, this accusation is baseless. A lot of People here were playing mainstream games a long time before even the ps4 accessibility features in 2015, e.g. Mortal Kombat, injustice, and let's not mention that people like you played dead space too. In the 8 years I've been here, I haven't seen one example of someone being trolled because they like to watch movies or tv. If you know of something like that, feel free to point me to it so I can research it on my own

I'll admit, it's sad that some people even get the idea that everyone in the blind gaming community is an entitled brat purely because of a small number of vocal persons who  happen to actually be entitled brats. It's even more sad that some accessibility consultants like Ian have to tell mainstream devs to avoid this site just because of those people. But if you spent just 10 seconds looking at poster names, you'd realize that by far not everyone acts like that.

Look, if some people were shallow enough to pick on you for not having the latest electronics, that's not something anyone but the people responsible can really do anything about. That doesn't give you the excuse to state that everyone else has all these shiny new gadgets and I have nothing, because that's not how the world works. You in the US might be concerned that your local branch of whatever accessibility firm you like might not want to give you the equipment you need. A blind kid in Uganda might be just a little more concerned that his family basically outcast him because of a disability he couldn't do anything about and will probably not live very long.

I don't even pretend to understand this one. Being sheltered has nothing to do with your first statement at all and this really doesn't go anywhere.

Oh, so we did that? Funny. I don't remember myself flying overseas just to punch you in the gut and tell you to leave. Are you really that delusional to think that you were the only one bullied in middle school? Now I won't pretend to know whether you went to a braille jail in those years, or a regular school, but I can tell you. If you're blind and you go to a regular old middle school in *any* part of the world, it's going to suck for you. And that's pretty much a given unless you happen to be one of those 0.0001% who happens to enter a class with people who are a lot more mature than their age suggests. I probably got pushed around just as much as you, and I can't believe we're the only ones in that matter.
What this community comes down to in the end however is that it's a place to talk about games. So if you announce a game here, naturally people will take an interest. I don't see why we're supposed to be the bad guys because we liked your games and some people would still like them to make a comeback. The point is, your games ment something to some people. They must have, if they still ask for a dmnb port to be put up in 2019, five years after that game was taken down. Maybe you should appreciate that a little more instead of throwing baseless accusations in our faces.
