EDIT: 10/14/11 I don't know why or how this got front page seeing how I uploaded this 4 months ago but, oh well, thanks for the front page guys :D.
This is my year and a half's worth of animation, audio and AS3 skills as they progress in complexity.
Amelioration definition: improvement, progress in development.
I also advise you to put the quality setting to med or low, some scenes are quite computer intensive.
From the humble beginnings along with noobish skills to more advanced skills in just about every aspect. All or most of the mistakes I've made have been left unchanged (painfully left unchanged) to give a further feeling of progression. For the most part the scenes are lined up in their order of completion, with the exception of the first scene, and the second scene has some extra eye candy to keep you from being bored.

Side notes: I never understood why madness movies never had play pause buttons, so I thought I'd give that to ya.
I did add some extra graphics so not all of the scenes are completely in order of completion.
I had tested this movie 25+ times, like exported the whole thing that many times due to errors, so the last finishing of this movie took forever.
Also there are skip scene buttons in most of the scenes, some of them I couldn't get to work.

16 separate scenes
32 fps
1366 library items (Big beginner mistake In My Opinion anyways)
10,635 frames (HOLY CRAP I wasn't expecting that)
3:30+ in length.
500 days in the making Dec 2009 ~ June 2011

Out of all the things I've learned I still couldn't make them walk any faster :P. I'll emphasize on their walking patterns more next time. Thanks for the review.

I'm happy for you, sounds like you took quite some time!
Such improvement. I was surprised on how you added that whole different scene nearing the end; very unexpected. Every scene, I saw the little things you did to improve from the previous one. And you gradually worked your way up to such an amazing level. I hope to see more in the future, with even MORE improvements! Just playing haha. Great job!

You deserve a much higher score.

As I'm reviewing this, the score is 3.56...and that's bullshit. This is a magnificent piece and deserves more recognition. The animation was very smooth and the art/backgrounds were great. I especially liked the idea with the cloak. It looked wonderful. God, the hard work here is SO apparent. Many of the people who vote here have no idea how hard it is to make a flash like this, or any flash for that matter. I am legitimately angry that your score isn't higher. As a matter of fact, I'm going to mention this is my next news post and hope that more people see it. I am happy that you devoted almost 2 years to this (believe me, I've been there) and ended up giving me some real entertainment to enjoy and appreciate.

People find this review helpful!

Thanks man, I mean I had a lot of fun making this and I've learned much from this experience. If it wasn't for SAT's and such this probably would have taken half as long as it did but life is life. In the end I'm glad that you and others who watched this enjoyed it and your post means a lot to me. Thanks and...have a chocolate cookie

And so it began .........hell once again. :P
The stereo chaser and the 3D surround sound you generated is unbelievable......
It may feel stupid but you must make something like Xionic madness but in your style this sound effects can rock that to the next dimension
