Beginner category - SSJBryando, Pluto, -Hawk-

Collaboration Compiler: -Hawk- (TeamXHawk)

Please read rules and description carefully before you start animating. Breaking some of those rules may get you disqualified (because we simply can't use your entry).

DESCRIPTION AND PLOT
Introduction (you must not animate this in your entry)
This is the story of a man called Jack Harisson whose brother is killed by the Ash mafia. He goes into their building to fight all the bad guys and get to the top level of the building to kill the head of the mafia.
Your task:
The main hero's color is #000262 (dark blue). He will fight various armed or unarmed opponents of your choice.
At the beginning and ending of your entry animate the hero coming/going up a set of stairs, into/out of an elevator or through a door. He uses a gun as the one in this image: http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pi c_with_logo/52025/52025,1204084757,1/sto ck-photo-black-semi-automatic-handgun-is olated-on-white-9823588.jpg If you're only doing 2-D you can trace the one in the picture. If you're using angles, try to draw as accurately as you can. He can pick up other weapons on his way but he must drop them by the end of your entry. He must still have his gun by the end of your entry. He can kill his opponents. He must not be killed or heavily injured during your entry. You can include many rooms or levels in your entry.

TECHNICAL DETAILS AND RULES
First and probably most important rule of all : Do not show your animation on public forums or websites until the collaboration for the round in which the entry is is released else you will be disqualified. When you finish, you must Private Message me a view link for the .swf to show the judges and a download link for the .fla to use in the collab.

Flash 8 : http://www.fileize.com/view/90edac54-c62 /
Please rename your symbols to "symbol_yourname" to make the compiling process easier.
Fullbody for human characters is not allowed. Stick and hybrids (semi-body) are allowed only.
You can add music in your entry, but it will only be shown with the music you added to the judges. For the collab, we will replace your music with the collab soundtrack.
You can add an intro to your entry (eg.: "-Hawk- presents : SPT Round 1 Entry). The entry with the intro in it will be shown to the judges, but the intro will be removed in the collab.
No advertising anywhere in your entry
No sexual themes

Good luck everyone ! The results of the current round as well as the current overall scoreboard will be announced a few days after the end of the round.

Hey Hawk, i have a question for the Tournament.
You said tracing the Picture. (Of the gun)
Do you mean like: Making a Bitmap Trace of the Gun, and then erase the white things out.
Or like: Drawing the outlines, and try to design the gun how it is on the picture?

I mean you can basically just draw over the entire thing and then remove the bitmap from beneath it. Basically, you don't have to design anything yourself.

I'll be trying much harder than Round 1 to join this, I hope the collab doesn't die :(

This is Geo, btw.

Geo, wait, wait, wait... who said the collab was dying ? O.o; We have 4 participants in professional category for round 1. That, plus the intro and outro which, by the way, will be done by Eviltie, makes about 3 minutes of animation. And that's pretty much been the average duration of a pro category collab so far.
Besides, people seem to like round 2 much more than the first one. So I see potential here. :)

We're planning to finish the intros and outros for the collaborations by 15th January, but I'm not sure that is possible. So we'll probably release sometime around the 20th.

Yun if u don't want ppl to take it put up the swf. file instead of the fla. file.
To hawk: is Yun able to ask someone else to make the weapon with permission to use it?

That's not what I actually said. I said that anyone willing to use the gun can use it. Unless they want to make a better one. :)

Also, the main character knows where the boss is at the top of the building.

Sorry for the double post. I need to send a reminder to all of you about this.

The gun is actually an M9. The previous picture was the M9 with an attachment similar to a silencer, yet it's just a flare muffler. :P

Sorry, I just had to. XD
