I had a dream last night that I visited the forums and you could choose between the new and old colour schemes. And they had names. I forget what the orignal green one was...well..actually now that I think about it I think it was called "original colours" and the blue scheme was called "Luke Skywalker" for some reason.<br><br>Anyways, there's my bit of randomness for today. <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END--><br><!--EZCODE IMAGE START--><img src="http://smc.sq7.org/brandon/mi_sig.jpg" style="border:0;"/><!--EZCODE IMAGE END--><br>"Requires MCGA, CGA, VGA, PGA, or TA-RA-RA-BOOMGA!!" <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>-Gary Owens, SQ4</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--></p><i></i>

Hehe great logo there. But I doubt AGDI (I just noticed that we can now just say "AGDI" instead of "the AGDs"...amazing) would want their logo to look any similar to the 'Sierra Studios' Sierra since they abandoned adventures and all. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END--><br><!--EZCODE IMAGE START--><img src="http://smc.sq7.org/brandon/mi_sig.jpg" style="border:0;"/><!--EZCODE IMAGE END--><br>"Requires MCGA, CGA, VGA, PGA, or TA-RA-RA-BOOMGA!!" <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>-Gary Owens, SQ4</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--></p><i></i>

Sorry guys, I just don't like the new forums setup. It's bland as hell... just like 90% of the other forums out there. I really liked the older setup, made me feel more "adventurous". And the color kinda hurts my eyes...<br><br>Just an opinion. <p></p><i></i>

The green color scheme always made me think of grass and earth(ironic since Tierra meant Earth.). With the blue I think of water and the sky. To me it's the next step of the adventure. <p>The Knight<br><!--EZCODE IMAGE START--><img src="http://www.shadowwebs.co.uk/images/aragornsig.jpg" style="border:0;"/><!--EZCODE IMAGE END--><br><br>"I see in your eyes, the same fear that would take the heart of me.<br>A day may come when the courage of men fails.<br>When we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship but it is not this day.<br>This day we fight!"</p><i></i>

It's cold here in lower mainland BC, Canada right now as Winter is here. Snow? Snow?<br><br>The name had been pretty much decided. We knew we'd want to take care of things soon. I drafted a banner that looked icy and even has some snowflakes on it if you look at it - for no other reason than I was in a wintry mood. AGD1 made most of the suggestions (deciding how AGDI would be written on the banner) and soon the banner was revised to its current form. Everyone seemed to like it - and so that's why we went with the blue colours. They are sort of winter-like - but I like your idea about water and sky... and I'll probably be thinking about changing the banner after the holiday season is over, so I just might do something along those lines. <p></p><i></i>

Fender178 - yes, Quest for Glory II will bear the new name, AGD Interactive.<br><br>And Etherlad, I'm actually not a hockey fan! Despite my living in Canada.

Could they change the name of the company from Tierra to AGDI In their previous projects that they all ready made like Kq2 VGA? Or would that Be too difficult to back and do all of that? <p></p><i></i>

Why does everybody insist that the opening logo in the games should be changed? Personally I think it would be a shame to lose that little bit of history that goes along with the Tierra name. Besides, as I mentioned earlier, technically both of those games were made by Tierra, not AGDI. My suggestion is to perhaps add a new AGDI logo in addition to the Tierra logo. Or do nothing at all. <p></p><i></i>

Good suggestion. As Erpy indicated earlier, and my post re-iterated before I edited it, it's still in discussion - so we'll take into account all the ideas that have been suggested so far. <p></p><i></i>

Wow. I go out of town for a little while, and everything changes. Typical.<br><br>Frankly, I'm not thrilled. In all honesty, I really liked the former name and design better. The Green & Gold color scheme just seemed a lot more...welcoming than this one, and it will definitely be a little dissapointing not to see the traditional title sequence at the beginning of the next QfG2.<br><br>Tierra seemed very cozy and personal, while, in my opinion, a name like "ADGInteractive" just seems too formal and impersonal.<br><br>But, then, that's just my opinion. I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over it. <p><!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>Seek for the Sword that was broken, in Imladris it dwells; There shall be counsels taken stronger than Morgul-spells.

Like: The color change. The green was terrible, and the forums really needed to be updated... I don't even think the off-topic board had the same color layout as the general board.<br><br>Hate: THE NAME. AGDI Interactive is cold and carries no emotion. It sounds just like every other dull, boring, acronym-abbreviated company that I've heard of that's gone out of business. I hate to put a positive change in a negative light, and it really doesn't bother me as long as you folks go on making remakes -- but I wouldn't have any problem at all if you decided to go on calling yourselves Tierra. <p></p><i></i>
