HEY RADICAL LARRY HOW ABOUT A HAIRCUT

****MIC TO THE WILLY***




quote:

Despite being low-tech, this game will feature the most expressive faces my work has ever gazed upon. The appearance of teeth in the 2D games was something I knew I wanted to bring to 3D, and I'm pleased to see them here replacing those unconvincing black holes! The effect was so successful that I used a similar technique for the eyes, which unfortunately can no longer move. They can at least blink though, which is a step up from the expressionless faces I was preparing for. Since the eyes are painted on, that also means they could change from character to character - squeezing a few more possibilities out of each base. As you can see, I'm also shooting for more detail with those whilst still remaining within the cartoon style.

At least the eyes aren't 3D. That poo poo was always plowing head first into the uncanny valley.

Yeah, I'll take 2D eyes that don't track other entities over 3D eyes that achieve blinking by sinking into and protruding out of the skull.

Awww. The clipping eyeballs are great. They're a novel approach born from MD's inexperience and lack of formal training. Truly the end of an era.

By "win the heart" you mean Larry rips it straight out of his ribcage, right?
No, that will only happen when Liam reveals he was only pretending to love Larry to get into the spotlight.

I have to admit, the tracking eyeballs add a lot of character to Mpire. I hope MDickie makes up for it with an improved damage/dismemberment system.

New ep recorded but had some technical issues during play as it was chugging along and stuttering for some unknown reason - the resulting video is very poor in performance and the audio is out of sync as it goes on - tried googling around but as ever there's no clear (helpful) answer.

I don't wanna upload it in it's current state but if there's some way I can just change the audio to match up that would be great. Any tips chaps?

I record via Bandicam and it comes out as .avi - not sure if that retains the 'audio layers' which would allow me to edit, of it that means its flat like a jpeg!

Virtualdub can be useful I guess

quote:

Download VirtualDub (Free)

Open up the AVI file in VirtualDub you recorded previously

Click “Video”, “Frame Rate…”, and under “Source rate adjustment” choose “Change so video and audio durations match”.

Save the AVI (using “Video” > “Direct stream copy” mode)".......

Another way in virtualdub

quote:

Video Menu
Direct Stream Copy

Audio Menu
Full Processing Mode ... then

Audio Menu
Interleaving > Enable Audio/Video Interleaving

and enter a + or - number in the Audio Skew Correction field.

I'd say that Larrytron needs a wrestling tax man. Therefore Paper Cut being hired as your manager wasn't a mistake.

Yeah, having someone who understands money handling that side of things should really be the #1 priority of all wrestlers. A pity that people only become managers as a way to get into the spotlight in MDickie Land.

No I absolutely loved it, it flew under the radar quite a bit but the ability to be a total fucker was so easy. A lot has been changed in recent versions (not that I've even looked into it for ages) to prevent this but the early versions were hilarious.

You could not accelerate when the race started and cause a monumental collision right from the get go (think blues brothers), take out race leaders and get a reaction. But it was always harmless dickery and you never got kicked or banned.

Nowadays I think car collisions are disabled which is like playing with 50 lap-replay ghosts

That's a bit wank, and not in keeping with the spirit of GTA. Makes more sense to give race creators the choice. Probably a few hardcore players got their knickers in a twist over others having a gaff at their expense, took to the forums and got it changed. ;(

On the flip side they did an amazing job considering that SA had no multiplayer. To produce a client that looks like a steam game is amazing, I've not looked at development for about a year, hopefully it's even more awesome now.

Maybe a few videos are in order...
