Asking for help to save our home

Post by mankrip » Sat Oct 10, 2020 2:12 pm

Things have been extremely difficult since last year, and now I'm having to turn to everyone I know to ask for help.

This week I've released the engine I've been working on for the last years: Graphical breakthroughs in the Retroquad engine. As explained in the article, my life is reaching a dead end and I don't see myself being able to keep going.

I've created a donation campaign to raise some funds to try to overcome at least the most urgent problems. If anyone can help and share it, it will be very appreciated.

Hey man,
I know the feeling, I am glad you have a wife that believes in you.
I'll contribute what I can when I get paid towards the end of the month.
I'll also share with a few friends. Have faith, don't give up.

Btw, the lady in the middle is your sister who just had surgery?

Hang in there!
Sounds like you got really screwed, but I'm glad to hear you have someone there with you. In times of absolute shit, that can make all the difference in the world.

Hopefully you can get some traction on this. If you are registered over at DCtalk, I'd say try posting there too. This place is pretty much a ghost town, and the DCtalk community is pretty respectful and appreciative of DC devs.

I wish you the best, and thanks for all your contributions over the years to the scene.

Thanks. She's our daughter.

Thanks. Good idea, I had forgotten about DC-Talk.

I had forgotten all about Fightoon! I was looking forward to that so much way back when. Thanks for releasing this stuff!
I hope my contribution helps

I am getting an error on the website. @Darc I am messaging you on FB.

Edit: PayPal works.

You got a beautiful family man, stay strong.
Best of luck.

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. I'll kick in what I can and I'll spread it around to hopefully get some more traction going. Hopefully, you'll be able to reach your goal sooner rather than later.
