Awards: 4 from Dev

[B]*** Promo has been updated... Again! I fixed the pylos logo (thanks Nix). I'm waiting upon the final Enna to change the one in the movie, but otherwise comments are still welcome. I realise the choppiness of the blurred images, and I'm trying to fix that. . (Don't mind the names all staying at the side of the browser, that is the browser's fault, the promo is not that wide and would not normally show that.)

I like it's start. However, the flow is just a little choppy. I liked how the "You" broke apart =). Could definetely run faster and use more pics. And...is it FoI music? No offense to music people, I just never found enough interest to listen to the music enough. Good work!

hey, yeah it seems when I was exporting it, it made some of the image blurring in choppy, and yes the music is Dev's death of Io. I plan to import some more foi artwork, but I'm just kinda wandering what peices, and if some people would like to come forward with some for me.

Oh and I'll try to get it running faster once it is done and I can make it flow to music (but it is slow now so I can stretch it out to fit the song) Thanks for the feedback.

p.s. hehe I like the you breaking thing apart too :)

I think that the "you", instead of breaking apart should shatter like glass. Maybe just me though. Overall, despite how short it was, it was pretty eye catching and that song is very dramatic, I think it'll suit the promo well.

Good job.

Thanks squall, I'll see what other effects I can bring into the "you". Thanks for the positive feedback :)

Hmm...couple things. First of all, it could still go way smoother (or can't it? Is it possible?), Pylos is spelt wrong, and that Enna pic can't stay up there for long since we don't know if it's official or not (probably not, sorry nataku. Personally, I think she's far too short. She should be only barely an inch shorter than Syne IMHO, but maybe that was your fault Morpheus? Not blaming anybody or anything...just saying) I like it otherwise. And of course, the names shouldn't stick to the side like that =)

Hey, yeah I only took that Enna pic because it was the most recent one that was her full body and coloured fully. and Pylos is? Well I just took that pic fomr the image back-up. And yes it can run smoother, but it seems that flash fucks up a movie when it exports it. I mad an AVI of it, and it is far different. So for now until I find out why flash sucks, it has to stay choppy. And check the profiles of the people to see how tall they are. I was under the influence she was shorter. But that was just the size of the picture. Thanks for the feedback.

(I looked at the old data and it says Enna is 6'3 and Syne is 5'11 that right anyone?)

2002/12/01 12:22:39 PST by AngelOfDeath [0/0]

6'3"? Wow if that's true she's quite the amazon.

I thought the promo was very appropriate and in keeping with game promos in general, but where would it go? Is it going to be placed on other sites?

Just wondering, so pardon my lack of knowledge.

2002/12/01 13:19:58 PST by Morpheus [0/5]

I was thinking the exact same thing, she must be massive. And I'm not quite sure where it would go, I just kinda got itching to make something, so here it is...

Hmm... I don't have any strong opinions about this (which is why I haven't said anything), but it seems over-dramatic to me... and perhaps a bit misleading as to the nature of the project. I don't really have any more to say than that.

Nataku: You might have to wait for awhile for the thing to download. For some reason IE doesn't seem to be giving any sort of notice that it is downloading, so it just seems to be doing nothing. If waiting doesn't work, though, right-click on the download link and choose "save as", then save it somewhere on your hard drive. Then, double-click on the file, and if windows asks you what program you want to use to view the file, choose Internet Explorer. It should work then.

I don't think it's any more misleading than most game promos. But I see your point. The whole point would be to make people curious enough to come and check things out. I think that the site is very self explanatory once interested people get here.

It's not just IE, Temp. There is no indication or warning that it's "loading" in the web page. But I agree, it should probably be toned down a little bit.

Pretty nice, I'ld say it needs pics of more characters tho. Also a few pics fading in and out at the begining would be nice maybe... I dunno.

2002/12/03 09:30:05 PST by Morpheus [0/5]

yeah, all great suggestions. I just did what I could in a minute and ten seconds. And it is easy to go back and change. But I figure I'd let you guys tear it apart first. And if you were talking about toning down the rests upon you jazz and stuff, I took it from our webpage (old one). Just incase it sounded fermilliar.

- I'm tempted to put a voice over in it reading the words, any thoughts on that?
