Word.

Lets go fellow NATA bros/bro-ettes.
Although a majority of us might be in very tough spots and seems very bleak to be able to finish, lets give em' all a show to remember and work our hearts out as much as we can. Making at least something is better than nothing.

Agreed. Just do what you can. And if you don't finish, who cares? As long as you put your best into it you'll be fine.

DO YA BEST

I third this.

School is nearing an end, which for this round is actually going to hurt my entry due to all the final projects & papers. I'm going to try to do as much as I can this weekend, I won't be working on it much next week.

Do you want help from your fellow animators? I don't voice act but can help with your voice overs.

Yeah I second that, man.
I can do some voice acting for you if you need it. I have a pretty good mic.
On another note, I've finally started doing the animation and final backgrounds now,
I've gone with a really sketchy style inspired by that pub dog animation on the nata website. That way i can blaze through the animation without getting hung up on all the little details and finesse.

My mic isn't all that great, but if you happen to need another voice actor, I'd be happy to contribute. :)

Wouldn't it be cool if the theme for the next round was robots, so that we could participate in this competition as well as Robot Day? :)

I think the main character must die, because the real one is dead. I think it would be a great conclusion. However, because the show isn't complete and because the other member of the crew doesn't want to stop it, I think it would never happened because even if the real Edd is dead, they think the cartoon version will be still alive and would be asomething for supporting his death because they can still see Edd in these cartoon.

Ok this hasn't anything to do with Nata lol good luck everyone.

Let me straighten this out - Edd himself didn't want the show to end - It was one of his last wishes before passing out...

You know what we should all really do? We should put all put a link to the Newgrounds: The Forsaken City Kickstarter at the ends of our videos. Tom's probably pretty worried that they won't make their goal. He's even got an advertisement for it on the top righthand corner of the website.

He'd really appreciate it, don't you think?

Maybe someone can help me with a sound issue. When I export an .swf, the sound becomes a noticeably lower quality. I've tried messing around with the compression settings in the properties for each of the sounds, but it doesn't seem to help.

Go into file --> publish settings. It should open up some exporting options(the first should be swf, I think). go into the tab at the top labeled flash, then you should see something on the box about audio settings. Click on both of those, then up the bit rate option from 16kbps(which is WAAAAAY too low) to something more reasonable like 32 or 64.

screen I'm talking about should look a little like this(it varies a little per version of flash you have).
