fuck I always wondered that. Think you told me a couple times but I forgot
Mine came from the first online game I played - Socom 1 on ps2. I was part of telstra's family & friends beta testing for the ps2's network adapter release in Aus - a couple hundred people got selected and sent network adaptors and a copy of socom about 8 months or something before the release, I think my bro won a competition or something and got it but he didn't really play. We didn't get to pick our names we just got assigned the first letter of our name then our last name, so mine was ledgley (bros name is luke).
A few of my clanmates started calling me edgers and when the beta testing finished I had to choose a new name so I just put Edgers and stuck with it from then on
The beta testing itself was pretty cool, they held a couple competitions where the top10 at the end of the month won a free game, I got 2 free games out of it, some random azn RPG's lol. When the actual network adapter was released the first month or two the testers raped, scores of 30 - 2 n shit every map haha. Then they released socom 2 and 3 and they were fail so I lost interest in console gaming

haha this will be a good thread i reckon... fuck this is gonna take some explaining though..
umm when i started gaming played Americas Army.. and the ppl i played with mostly were americans so i wanted something to distinguish me as being australian... so i picked the name AussieAADeamon.. lol then in stupidity of youth i got busted hacking.. so had to create a new name and account.. yes i used to hack when i was younger and i got quite serious about it but thats another story...
Then my name was Demon.Oz or something.. umm yea joined a clan etc and got banned hacking agian.. made some other randy account that i used for about 2 months..
then i took close to 2 years off gaming..
Then i did my school work experience at my local computer store and they got me back into gaming...
Started playing CSS and Cod2 with them and was looking for a name.. and one day in history or geography someone mention Terra australis or what ever it is.. and i went that sounds like a good name.. but then just switched it round to AusTerror...
So there u have it.. the evolution of Austerror from young immature hacker to slightly older immature smartarse.. lol

Draco - from the movie draco that came out, thought it was a cool name.
Severen - was playing "blood" similar to hexen etc. where you could decapitate people with a pitchfork hence the name sever which with the en means "to sever" or the act of severing.
Player - Default name in HL when it came out CBF changing it so sometimes player(1) etc hehe
Cookie Monsta - For putting cookie monster virus on mates computers (around the time of the dx computers) where you had to type cookie and press enter before the picture of the cookie monster would come off the screen.
Woffle - normally the name when i cant be fucked playing properly, as in "to waffle" verb - to speak or write in a vague and wordy manner. The later addition of the waffle breasted woman was due to being exceptionally drunk/hungover and not wanting to do work, so thought wtf lets make the womans tits look like waffles. The o incedentally was a typo that stayed.

Started playing Soldier Of Fortune years ago as AzzA, then when I moved to other games I chose FearDaReaper after a drawing a mate drew. Got sick of typing FearDaReaper all the time so I used DFS for a little while after my email address, then decided to go back to FearDaReaper and just shortened it to Reaper.

I downloaded it last night and got it working this afternoon with a lil bit of mucking around.
The download link is between the adds by google. Download: Link
That takes you to a new. Then again between the two links.
To get most of it working run in compatibility mode. Windows 95 worked for me. Also do the colours.
Once downloaded you will have to muck around to get the setup file to work. Once you get it working and have installed it. You will need to download this: http://www.deeem2031.de/DDRAW.dll
Place that in the folder you installed it to....
Once that is done go back to the original download folder and copy all the files to the place you installed. DO NOT OVERWIRTE WHATS THERE. This is only to get all the extra dll's and what not.
Then extract the crack and overrite the .exe
Then give it ago.
If you run into any snags or need help let me know.

Well, when i had a really epic shit computer and i was in like grade 6 (dont ask me for exact dates). I went through this phase of playing text-based games because thats pritty much all my fail computer would play. So this game called Valheru is set in like a fantasy structure and as i sed before is text based. So plenty of reading, and requires an imagination. To set the mood, u cant use real words for names, and if mods see u with a name like IRPWNNUBITOS, they will flag u and u gotta change ya name. So at the time i was lacking imagination and went to some random ass name generator on a site called The Seventh Sanctum, and used the Dark Elf Name Generator and Viprus popped out and here i am.

I'm South African and my mother tongue is Afrikaans. Its a language that has roots from the orginal white settlers in South Africa, and is somewhat of a mix between Dutch, German and a tiny bit of French. I can understand Dutch pretty well infact.
Anyway, 'Denker' is Afrikaans for Thinker or Philosopher. Goes back to my more emo school years I guess.
