  • Comments: Hi!

    Long time since I've been here. All just the mb for me :-).

    At the computer I'm using I get an invisible messgage saying "Render failed at initialization". By setting fulscreen to 0 I made it visible but my mouse is still invisible making it close to immpossible to click ok!!!

    What does this mean?

    Haven't tested the secret. Top make it more secretive you could use the console (~)


    take a look at the console.log file. Did it work before at the computer you are using? If not, you may not have OpenGL drivers installed.

  • Comments: That game was very annoying. Yes indeed. And do you ever post negative messages? I suspect not.. And I bet you tested this game on innocent animals and gerbils..

    I only remove posts that are way off topic and offensive. There are some negative posts, but overall the response has been very positive. Thanks everybody!

If I send you back my broomsticks that was purchesed ages ago will I get the new version half off? Oh and if the answer is yes, the cover is slightly smeared (it got a little wet)...can I still get any discount? I understand if you say no. Well cya! -HPOTTER P.S. Your game is still one of my favorate! :-)

    Sure, I remember you!

    Yeah, I can do that. Send me an email.

  • Comments: I made characters for Broomsticks. They look really silly. Team One+Team Two both have an orange alien. The rest of the characters are eagles with different color beaks. PS BROOMSTICKS ROCKS!

    Cool! Make sure you send them to me and I will post them in the gallery.

  • Comments: One more thing- why don't you have demo for broomstics 3D for online play? i can't download, parents wont let me. pleas reply!

    Broomsticks 3D uses an advanced rendering engine and requires a decent graphics card with OpenGL support. Right now, you can't do this sort of thing in the web browser (with a Java applet).

    Put the image in the images folder. Then, rename it so that it is one of the names that you can select from in the game.

    If the demo version of the game works on your computer, than so will the Full Version.

    Try tapping the keys rather than holding them down. The reason that players keep moving is to give it the feel of flying.

    In the advanced demo, you can use the down arrow (enable diving).

    The gameplay can be frustrating at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is quite fun. Of course, I don't expect everybody to like it! :-)

  • Comments: To: MR. "HELLO" You suck. this game rocks. the down button is called "diving" I think and is only in the full version. there is somthing called "momentum" too. If you dont like this game then u suck. this game rocks. From: STEVE

    Diving is also in the advanced demo. The reason it is not in the regular demo is that I made the regular demo more than 2 years ago and many people are hosting copies of it on their websites. So, it would be very difficult to get all of those people to update. Instead, the newest features are found in the advanced demo and the full version.

    BTW, diving was a suggestion by fans of Broomsticks.

  • Comments: How does the Items image work? what is it? what does what, ect? I want to knw bfore i get the full version. I knw I sign the guesbook alot, but I don't have anything else to do, and I like the format of how it works


    the items image has the 3 balls and the 2 images for the hoops (regular and highlighted). This image can be changed so that the balls and/or hoops look different.

  • Comments: How often do you update your advansed demo? how often do you answer your guestbook?

    I use to update the advanced demo once a week, but I only turned on one feature at a time. Recently, I turned on 5+ features and left it that way. To get the last 5 or so features you need to get the Full Version.

    I try to answer the guestbook every couple of days. :-)

  • Comments: Sorry for signing this so much, but I have another question. I was thinking about what that jerk "HELLO" said, and can J.K. sue you? I know you say "Red ball" and "Black ball" and "tiny fast gold ball". but can she sue you anyways?

    Really, the most important thing to J.K. and Warner Brothers are the names. Names are what creates a "brand" and make something official.

  • Comments: Just helping out Paul

    No J.K. Rowling or Warner Bros. cannot sue Paul because his game is called "Broomsticks" not "Quidditch" which is a copyrighted name. He also refers to them as "red/black/gold ball" as you said above.

    I guess Paul's still working on the demo Larrin, he did add a computer opponent to it though. Just hit "o" while your playing the demo. (Make sure you do it with the recent one though, not an old demo)

    How's the network play comming Paul???

    I tried the network version that I had started a while back and it is broken. I will have to look into it.

    This probably means that you do not have OpenGL drivers installed for your graphics card. Usually, you can fix this by getting drivers from the website for your graphics card. This is usually under the "support" section. What kind of graphics card do you have? You can check it by right clicking on the desktop->Properties->Settings.

  • Comments: Hello all! It is I, some guy name Matthew!! Mwa ha haa! =D

    Heh heh, ok, ok... So how's everything going? Everything seems well here!

    Now, sometime in April 2001 I said I was trying to make my own version of Broomsticks (heh heh, man my version sucked). Well, I'm at it again, but I've decided to 'megaly' simplify it - 4 bit Black and White GameBoy Broomsticks *HIYAH*!!

    Now don't worry Paul, this game will only have one player game-play with easy, medium, and hard settings. The characters won't be able to change to a custom set, so there's one advantage you have. The sound effects will, alas, be dumb and GameBoy-ish, there's another advange you have. There will be NO colour, so there's a big advantage to you... Only advantage I'll have is music, but that's not a big advantage as it's only gonna be gameboy music...

    Let's just think of GBBroomsticks as... a majorly crippled rip-off demo, kay? =D
