Seriously, stop spamming so much. You don't need every second post in the reg lounge to be by you... Its really getting over the top and annoying. Sure we get it, you like to comment on every topic that enters the lounge. But seriously, stop using it like its an instant messenger. Its like, I come on to check if there's any topics worth talking about and have to sort through 3 pages of your boring, short, annoying spam posts.

I was thinking of buying The Illusion of Life, which is also a good read from what I've heard. Ollie Johnston, the last living member of Disney's Nine Old Men and co-author of the book, died last week and that sparked my interest for Disney again. I think it'll be interesting to read about the animators and animations from back in the day, when Disney was still a respectable company.

The animator's survival guide costs around 65 dollars if I want to buy it from a webshop here. So I guess I'll have to import it.

You'd be surprised how hard it is to break even with bandwidth costs sometimes :P Last site I had I ended up losing something like 2x what I was getting through Google ads just to keep up with the extra bandwidth I needed to buy for the months after every new game release. So yeah, I'm not taking any chances :P

Besides, it's all pretty much valid CSS, so ad sections are ridiculously easy to stick in and take out whenever I feel like it. What you're seeing is basically the maximum whorage that the site's going to have - I'm going to lose the top bar until I get an idea on how much money I've got coming in and going out from it, and the side one's pretty uncertain.

Also, what happened to everyone's fondness for affiliating? Lots of dev sites now don't even have link sections. We used to be tight.

Pfft, screw affiliation. I'm just going to add as many awesome developers as I can find banners and sites for :P

If anyone wants to return the favour, go right ahead.

Affiliation
I am trying to find a way to put my affiliates back up, but it's really a lot of icons to be displaying on any website... and that's why I am kind of straying away from it. Trying to find a place and nice design layout for them is hard.

Website Hosting
Tyler and I both use GoDaddy, which is $7 a month for 1.5 TB transfer/150 GB or $15 a month for 3 TB transfer/300 GB. That should be plenty, and I find that their reliable up time and choice of OS is nice.

RE: Affiliation
I need to revisit my whole affiliation as well... I'm going phase out graphic banners. They are very 1990's ... people nowadays are accustomed to just having links and its more to the point and overall easier to maintain. One annoyance of my current setup is that if a banner is hotlinked and that site goes down.. my site ends up suffering with that stupid broken image icon.. It just makes all sorts of sense (for me) to just have a blog roll type of setup... where its an unordered list of sites i like.

Fuck rolling out a red carpet.

3 new maps...

So, the new Halo 3 map pack is freaking awesome. I'm so happy Lockout is back, even though I'm a bit unhappy with some of the mods they made to it, on the whole i know the feel of the level will persist. Also, Sidewinder is back!! AND: It's better. Also, I can't remember the name of it, but the third level is very similar to that one level in Halo 2 where you jump on top of the buildings. It's very urban and littered and it looks like it's going to be awesome for 16 player slayer.

Website ads:

Why oh why would you?
Sure to recover server costs that's fine, but people put them in the worst of places possible. I've given up with adverts on my sites, I'd much rather pay out of my own pocket for my server than having to put up with frankly, ugly, adverts on my sites, i spend a lot of effort designing my sites (not that I've ever made anything good:)) and i wouldn't feel right destroying the effort with rubbish ads.

So yeah : Don't use adverts they're gay.

By the way JMTB02 i hope you know that cutenews is insecure as shit, it's a piece of piss to hack and by using it you're just asking to have your site defaced, I'd recommend removing it ASAP, because i had my site hacked because of using it :3 So yeah, might want to be wary of it :/

Any coders wanna team up after Pico Day?

I have a game idea. Similar to Puyo Puyo, Columns or Baku Baku animal, it's about deleting falling blocks. Familiar yet unique rules. More of a puzzle game than those, as levels and stuff are predefined.

Graphics are half-done, though I wanna finish animating the dancing ghost mascot and also the cut-scenes. I'd like to resume the cut-scenes after May 6th and have them ready by June.

Is anyone confident they could code something like this and willing to team up to make it a reality?

I've got a .swf animation that explains the rules if you're interested. Levels have been designed but may be altered after play-testing.

NG-Unit he can be a bit right. You do post a bit too much at points and just keep responding and responding. You should wait a while and have everyone get to say what they want. A lot of us have real school and work, so it takes a bit longer to respond. But Vengeance, on the other hand, you should calm down a bit too...you've seemed a bit angrier recently at everyone.

I've actually heard bad things about GoDaddy. I can't remember what these rumors were but they did put me off of GoDaddy. But I guess if you lot credit them then it should be alright.

There are a lot better coders here who you'd probably choose over me but if you've got no other interest or everyones busy then I'll be willing to do it, depending on what needs doing. Do you want to send over the swf/upload it so that I can see if I can do everything required etc.

Maybe hes on his period...ok, end of jokes

Alright, I can calm down and not post as much. I agree I do get every other post and I can see how that could annoy some people. <joke> so I'll only try to post every OTHER post k?</joke> Anyway, sorry for annoying some people and all that wonderful stuff..

On the other side, like MrMacro said, I'm not blabbering about nothing and I am on topic, plus you said that I should wait for other people to say what they wanna say, technically if I post before them, it doesn't mean they can't still express their opinions and tell their feelings on the subject. I never post on topics which I don't have any idea on either, for example, I didn't post about the animators survival kit, etc.

But anyway, I will try to not post as fast and I'll try to calm down a bit

Turning code into a Game (non-programmers can still enjoy)

http://www.retrodev.co.uk/MiscGames/Nake dGame/TheNakedGame.html

By clicking, you can 'delete' lines of code. Click to turn them back on. This affects the game in realtime, making it both a visual demonstration of what that code does and also an exploration of the 'frailty' of the game.

You can really have a laugh playing god over the ball and paddles and can even get the paddles to descend into the code, in a postmodern twist!

It's one of the best electronic games I've seen in a while, but it also occurred to me that for a person who knows no AS, it might be an interesting interactive tutorial into what some lines of code do. Maybe.

Do you want to send over the swf/upload it so that I can see if I can do everything required etc.

I'll e-mail the file and continue discussions in private.

As long as you're confident you're able to make the engine and will see the project through, having surplus ability isn't an issue. You do need to have the ability for that kinda engine though. If you could code Dr. Mario, you can code this. It's that sorta game.

Your wardrobe at a glance

Well I've been in the process of spring cleaning my place whenever im not working on pico shit... and today I was picking apart shirts that im donating to charity. It was kind of interesting to go through my shirts... i woulda sworn i was a t-shirt and jeans kind.. but as it turns out i have a ton more solid colored polos.. so then i picked em apart further and heres what i came up with...

i tend to like horizontal striped polo shirts.. none are vertical.. i tend to go with a wide variety of solid colored polos... and my t-shirts are very dark colored aside from an occasional white. And the stack on the far right was just newgrounds related shirts just for the sake of keeping it relevant...

what kind of clothes person are you?

before you actually go answering based on your hunch you should dump out your closet and really pick it apart.. you might be suprised... or not .... in which case youll have a big mess to clean.

You just reminded me - I really need to clean my stuff up. At this point I can literally slide out of bed down a pile of papers and clothes.

Anyway, I do like my tshirts. The geekier, the better. I'll generally go with short sleeved shirts or jackets over them, or both. And long-sleeved shirts with for less casual situations, but still with a geeky t-shirt as a backup. I usually spend all of the money in my PayPal on shirts from web-sites which only about three people in Lancashire will get, so I try to get as much wear out of them as possible.

No, your fine NG-Unit, if you were spamming and such i'm sure you would have a pm from a mod or anyone who it is annoying, i mean it's kinda rude slagging people off in the topic where i think it should be said via pm...

The internet shirts in my wardrobe are fairly limited actually.
Tankman parachuting, Newgrounds Black, Megatokyo NPC and something from a webcomic stall in London who's name I can't remember with a fire axe on it stating "In case of fire, break glass", with 'fire' scribbled out and 'zombies' written over it. Tempted to get an XKCD hoodie.

A £140 ($280) gouge where my fanboy organs used to be...
So I placed my preorder for the six month late European version of Rock Band against my better judgement. I feel almost happy I'm saving £40 off the RRP...

I'm worried the VG forum isn't more... up in arms over it.

If I do end up dragging a console down for August, there will be a no shoes rule for the drums and an enforced policy of 'if you can't ban me, your first turn on the game WILL be on the vocals...'

Wardrobe

I have pretty much no shirts from the internet. I have a fair bit of Trailer Park Boys shirts (look nice and are humourous) and picked up a Guitar Hero 3 shirt yesterday (ya, I know, but it looks good, and I'm a fanboy). Beyond that, it's lots of solid-coloured, long-sleeve T-shirts. Also, I don't own shorts. Only pants.

Super-pricey Rock Band

Kayn, I spent around $250 to get a copy from eBay (just came out, wasn't in Canada yet), and while it's expensive, I can say it's completely worth it. The game is amazing, especially when you get a group of people going on it. The price they're charging over there for it is very steep, but as I said, it's awesome, and the library of songs (in-game and downloadable) is very nice, with someone for literally everyone.
