Bleh, the PC is in the same room anyways.

Hey man there's a trick with the Roku that I learned after much frustration. When it freezes on you, you've got to go to a different input on your TV, then you click the "home" button like 2-3 times till the little white light starts flickering when you do, and then go back to Roku and it'll be unfrozen. I don't know why it works like that, but it does.

only problem with that would be that newgrounds animators can produce series of animations as fast as those guys can :(.

Participants in Madness Day 2011 (this Thursday), epic fall and our Halloween Spooktacular this October will be next in line for showcase on the new channel, which is currently showcasing past Halloween entries alongside other classics.

When will the Madness Day 2011 entries be up on Roku? I need to know when to go out and buy one, so I can salivate over the 1080p quality.

Mike has been developing the "best ever" SWF to video converter, so we can turn just about any SWF into a 1080p video that runs full-frame-rate, with smooth rasters and filter effects. We'll be making it available later when it's more complete.

Probably no Chance that Mike would let me use that software is there? That sounds pretty awesome, seeing as most swf converters are horrifyingly crappy. Well for now I should just keep working on developing actual flash talent before worrying about conversions.

The software will be made available once everything is fine-tuned and working on as much content as possible.
