This website used to have a purpose.
It was stupid, and childish, but it was a purpose. now it’s just a show about nothing.
I don’t remember the dates, it’s kind of hard to because it was so long ago, but it started in the early 2000’s with a nerd in high school who loved the game Star War: Jedi Knight – Dark Forces II and a newly discovered curiosity of Dragon Ball Z.
A well known modder going by the name Shred, at the fan site Massassi.net (a shadow of it’s former self now) had been working on a mod, well a Total Conversion Mod, for JK:II. It got to be large enough that he needed to put together a team and most of the well known modders in the Massassi community had at least SOME participation in the development of the mod, whether they contributed with scripting, textures, level design or modeling, it was surely one of the largest and most ambitious mods to come out of the community.
It was big enough that it even had it’s own community and thats where the story of Outlaw-inc.com began.
On the Dragon Ball Z TC website, SOMEONE had managed to get a copy of a developer build of the mod and leaked it to the internet, this was of course rather scandalous as the hard work Shred and his team had put in was leaked early and not finished – but it didn’t stop people from downloading and playing it.
in an effort to curb discussion about the unfinished beta mod, it was forbidden to be discussed on the official mod forums, so a user named Bus Driver along with Nsinger created and hosted their own forums that couldn’t be censored by the tyrannical moderators at the DBZ TC forums, and Outlaw-Inc was formed.
It didn’t really do much, a lot of discussion about the Mod, and a lot of other niche forums opened up but ultimately the community wasn’t big enough to sustain itself and over time it just died as the users matured and outgrew Jedi knight and the now decade and a half old Mod – went to college, got jobs and started to live life.
During the height of the controversy NSinger who was hosting the website couldn’t afford to continue, so I took over hosting. but as the community of Outlaw-Inc died – I kept the domain. I don’t know what this site will be now, but it’s purpose has been fulfilled.
