Hi guys, I've not been on the forums for a while but I'm back and around a bit more now.
I saw Hedgetrimmer a couple of months ago and he mentioned this project to me. After reading through the thread I would like to put my name down for a cable as well.

Hope everyone is well, it's good to be back.

SD Gundam game uses it too, in the Gundam battle mode. Each direction activates a different attack iirc.

Of course, you are both right...emulated VB gaming nowhere near matches playing on the proper kit.

Which is why I want a Flashboy!
I have a friend looking out for those chips in bulk and if anyone can find them, he can. Fingers crossed here for batch to turn up soon.

Great video's, both of them. What about Chariots of fire from Vangelis? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYJzcUvS_NU To give it an epic touch...


Svenk, you do have good vision there but unfortunately 3:22 is a bit long for a promo vid and Vangelis don't really scream dynamic energy. I love the Bladerunner soundtrack but I think Chariots of Fire is a leap too far for our VB coding comp.

I know it came in 1993, but I'm not certain it was a hit everywhere that same year. ;-)


Perhaps Ace of Base - but I guess it should be something more electronic...

Shaggy Boombastic maybe?


Not sure quite how to put this Frog but, no, those Eurodance acts will never feature in any work of mine. I know you Swede's have to defend the likes of Basshunter but still...no.

We're going to try a mid-90's techno sound with EON and if I don't use any EON tune it'll be something very similar. The beeps, bleeps and bass are all perfect for the style of title animation I have created and the music itself is particularly reminiscent of the mid-90's computing technology.

I really appreciate all the ideas and input guys, even if it's not the kinds of things I can ultimately work with, thank you and keep 'em coming.

I got a lot of love for your video Akumie, it was inspirational.

@RP: EON shall be tried out in the composition.

@HT: 'Fear is the mindkiller' has to be a favourite? We could spend another 3 weeks composing something on the pad.

Thanks guys, that's a really encouraging response.

@RunnerPack: I'm using Adobe AfterEffects for all the animation and effects; with P/Shop, Illustrator and Premiere for creating other assets and elements.

I shall have a dig through my records as well, surely there's a nice piece of music in there from 1995 or thereabouts

The storyboard for the full length promo has more game footage flying around and the prizes shown off with some more title animation.

YaY!

Hi guys,

So its been a couple of weeks and I've been quiet I know. The weather has been nice for a change so I have to admit catching some time in the sun...

I felt a little guilty for not getting on with a little promo I'd promised to have a crack at so set to it with renewed vigor over the last few days. The result is a short teaser vid which says 'what and where' with a full length promo in production to follow. I'm still sourcing the best music and game sounds to use and tidying up some Camtasia grabs of the emulator but this should give you a taste of what I've been doing.

I had about 6k Stars/Nintendo points on my account 12months ago but they seem to have bugged out or disappeared altogether.

Bums.
