Rip Foszor

You might remember Foszor from the GMod community a while back. Like, 13 years back or something. His game Zinger came second in the fretta game contest we did in about 2010.

I was really sad to hear that he’d passed away a couple of months ago. I was even sadder to read that he leaves behind his wife and two young kids.

Back during my main development period of Garry’s Mod I’d speak to Foszor almost every day about what functions do what, what’s missing, what’s broken, what’s confusing. When you’re doing a project like this there’s a lot of noise, a lot of confused voices asking for things. Foszor was one of the voices that I’d always pay attention to. I knew that if he wanted something it was actually needed – he knew what he was doing.

I hadn’t spoken to him for years so I was happy to find that he had made himself a career in the game industry. His gamemodes were always incredibly polished, I regret that I didn’t work harder to keep in touch and work together more. I feel like there are people who can either make things look good, or are good coders, and it’s rare to find someone that can do both things.. but he was one of them.

  1. He and Jinto made the hoverboard addon. They were fucking legends in the GMod community and most people never knew who they were because they departed it much earlier, before it gained critical mass from the youtuber invasion. I knew he had been battling brain cancer when he left GMod, I had no idea he was working in the industry and still fighting it all along. RIP and I hope his family can remember the good times and find peace.
