Hello friends and bitter ban-fodder,

I've finally found the time and motivation to launch a site of my own before my hard drive had the chance to crash and wipe it out again. As I said in the initial news posting, I don't hope to build a community, but rather use it as a personal site.

A couple of things I'd like to address include:
-This thread, itself. No, it is not against the rules to publicize your site. If you read them well, you'll see that it says "repeatedly", and this is the first time I've ever launched a site, much less publicized it.
-I know the image gallery is buggy, but as such a small part of my site, I'm putting off those renovations so that I can get back to the projects I've been neglecting. (Read about them in the Upcoming section)

Well alright, comments and crits are welcome. Any visitors will have my appreciation, and I will be updating whenever I can.

YAY!

thats really cool man -- very smooth menu system, the pictures didnt seem at all buggy

Response to negativeflash.com launched 2005-10-12 13:41:51


1.make a quality select button. on shitty pc's like mine, it runs slow at bits.
2.i like the navigation, but make the text for the links appear quicker.
3. also i know you have the menu bar at the bottom, but you should put it on the left so its more user friendly (on most sites the page links are on the left).

i like the little deathstar wannabe thing too :D

Cool. The problems seem to be browser-related. Thanks for your comments, and Mogly's interest as well.

Yeah, good call. I was thinking about that all through production but just kept putting it off despite how utterly simple it is.

It wants nothing to do with the death star >_____<

I have to agree, the pictures aren't buggy at all. I really like the cool glow effects, green glow and black looks really nice. Anyway, yeah, nice work on this, very amusing site.

- It's not on freewebs or stuff like that.
- The games are good.

Not good:

- Not much to do except play couple of games and movies.
- Could you add some sound?

Well, yeah. It's just a personal site. It's not something that's meant to be visited every day or to build a community, like Newgrounds. It's just someplace people can go now and then to check out what I've been working on, what I've already released, and so on. Just kinda like a portfolio.

- Could you add some sound?

I've been thinking about that one too. I want sound, but the ones I want would be so hard to find. afro-ninja suggests I make my own using microphone and filters. I'll look into that.

more content

I'm working on it, heh. I go a route that a lot of Flash game developers seem to avoid, which is large projects.

Thanks to everyone else who left comments.

It's a beautiful site, really sweet layout and awesome graphics and effects, smooth transitions.

Not much bounce back, keeping people coming, but if it's a personal site it's not t hat bigger deal.

just wondering, who is the other member who refered you to mo? you made me curious, was it AB? you need to be nastier towerds mo anyhow :-P

on my suggestion box, maybe a single forum about the site? that would be pretty useful, and maybe some ADs on the bottom, also, what about giving the main page a nice background and positioning the flash in the middle of the screen's width and height instead of a popup

Response to negativeflash.com launched 2005-10-12 15:28:10


Very nice. Slick and polished, easy to navigate, well-integrated. Good showcase.

Awesome Neg, I'd been wondering for a while if you were ever going to get a site up. I like how its a panel window, makes for easy navigation. Your new games are sounding impressive too.

Actually not in this case. It was AngryAxl.

Trust me, I wanted to. But I've had enough legal threats from him for one lifetime. I just want never to speak to him again, even if it means feigning pleasantries.

on my suggestion box, maybe a single forum about the site?

Hmm. Maybe one would be alright. I just didn't wanna give the impression that I'm trying to imitate those community based sites or something.

some ADs on the bottom,

Eh. Convenience for myself and the viewers > $50 or whatever

I don't know. As much as I hate new windows popping up, I like the format of the site as is. I'm going to change the Upcoming section so that the screenshots open in the same window rather than the new one. The larger pictures will always open in a new window in the gallery though. I lurve my little micro sites.

Hey Negative, I'm not sure its just my computer, but Vanguard Mercenaries isn't working right, in the actual game all the collision (guns and impact with stuff) isn't happening. I just kind go right through the enemys. I came back to NG to test it out here, and it worked right, so I'm just bringing it to your attention, like I said it may just be me, I'm not sure.

Cool site and all, but this shouldn't be here. This forum is for discussing flash techniques and stuff. Next time post topics like this on the General forum instead, it's more fit for this kind of thing.

You know Negative is a mod right? I'm sure he knows where to put what.

Huhn! That's a weird one, thanks for pointing it out. I'll try to figure it out when I get home.

So you finally shoved it under the public's nose eh?

Well I figured I'd wait until it was done before I made it public :P

Great site. A single forum might be nice, but that is not needed and completely up to you.

Love the style it is all easy to read and not hard on the eyes at all, like alot of nooby sites are. menua are great, easy to navigate as well. And also if you ever needed help with backgrounds at all, i could help out, having done backgrounds for Gliel Gamer (game which never flew due to no character animator) and Deathcon7. Long shot, but i dont have any of my own projects so.

Good job with the site.

You realize it's a flash site, right?

I could understand your point if we locked similar topics, but we don't. We let people post topics about flash sites and projects as long as it's deserving

Nice site, though the little pop up window that is your site could turn to be an annoying thing, BIGGER IS BETTER (sometimes).

Fair enough, I will remember that so that when I have a site or project I want to advertise I know where to come. I was under the assumption that this board was just for learning and teaching. Stupidity comes with inexperience though, or something poetic like that. Thanks for the info, and sorry for the misunderstanding.
