Announcement   Announcement : ChaosLord dies in his final battle...
   posted by Hypex on 9-Jul-2016 16:40:10 (6134 reads)
Hello everyone. I have some sad news to share.

I found out a few days ago that a friend I met online, James Conwell, passed away on July 1st.

James went by the handle ChaosLord and is credited for being best known for his TotalChaos game on the Amiga and his creation of the JC programming language, James C, that was his own macro set to make C easier to work with.

James suffered from the condition of RSD for eight years and in that time still worked hard with his team on his TotalChaos game with a view to expanding it to other computer platforms.

Well, James, you no longer have to deal with your own chaos within. I thank you for being part of the Amiga community and for becoming part of my life.

This is a bit belated but I'm posting this on behalf of archmageirvine who has had issues with his account:

I am greatly saddened to hear about the passing of James. James inherited the code base for Chaos from me way back in the 1990s. My original version was of course based on the Spectrum version by Julian Gollop. Initially I worked closely with James on the development including the early versions released onto Aminet. Over time my involvement in the project declined as I was involved in other work. James took the game further than ever, gathering an impressive team of people to help particularly with improving the graphics, sounds, and internationalization. We had many interesting discussions during those years. In 2003 we had a disagreement about how future development should proceed and ended up going our separate ways. I only had occasional email contact with James after that time. All the same, I am sorry to hear about his death, and wish his family and friends well.
