update / need help again

Well due mainly to a bunch of requests I've gotten to continue Freeman's Mind, I guess I will continue it afterall. While I understand it's not everybody, it seems a good chunk of people like it more than I would have expected. I still plan to continue on Civil Protection and focus on that primarily, but this will be nice to release in between the times it's taking so long to get a CP episode out. Unfortunately I'm not working on either right now, I have other work I have to take care of first, but plant to get back to the series soon.

In the meantime, I could still use help on the webpage for any of you that are familiar with blogspot. I had one guy helping me who vanished, and another guy is helping me now, saying an additional person would be good too. So if you know all about html/blogspot, send me an email at rscott31@radford.edu. Also while I was planning to do it myself, I won't have a lot of time to work on the graphics for the site (buttons, banner, etc.) If you do graphic design and want to help work on the layout of the new webpage, email me too. I may want to see samples of your work however. That's all for now, I'll put another post up when I've resumed working on the series again.

Ah, Graphic Design would be so fun. I'm sure there are some really really good guys out there who do it for a living who would love to help you.

Joe said...

Awesome! Freeman's Mind, WOOT!

CaptainZM said...

I'm really glad you've decided to Continue Freeman's Mind. The series is so freaking Funny to watch. Me and My bro both played Half-life a lot and we get enjoyment to no end from watching these.

Brings back great Gaming Memories. Not to mention your voice is the living embodiment of Ray Romano.

Wewt! Good to hear you're continuing FM. I still think you have hit a winner there. I'm sad I'm not able to help you with any of stuff your asking for. But I would if I could. :D *no skillz*
Can't wait for the next CP as I am sure you have heard others say aswell. ;)
GL with your work thing!

someonero said...

Ross, my email is being stupid again, can't send you a reply, so I'm writing here. The subs for episode 2 will be ready today, maybe at evening. Or maybe tomorrow. The subs for episode 5 will be ready tomorrow for sure. Also, I think I will redo the episode 1,3 and 4 subs, 'cuz timing there sux. But I can't say for sure, I'l have to see if I'l have any free time, 'cuz I'm busy with the university and there's some problems at work, so I can't promise much, but I hope the subs for episode 2 and 5 will be ready today\tomorrow.
About redoing the 1,3,4 subs, dunno when I will do that.

Ed said...

Yeah!!! I feel really great that you are going to continue FM. But, yeah.. I also think CP should be the primary one. I'm really sorry that I can't help you anything :( Oh, about the subs, if you don't mind, I would also send my subs to your e-mail.

i just noticed in episode 4 of cp, dave's feet look messed up whilt he's riding the train. hes leanong forward and his feet seem to awkwardly move. when he jumps off, he seems to fall backward. Is it GARRY'S MOD graphics that u use for cp? or is it ur own way????

I said...

I liked Freeman's Mind, but your kind of at the end of where you can do it. You can get through the residence cascade/ shit blowing up, and that would be pretty funny, but if you tried to do the rest of the game it doesn't seen like it would be that great.

"Man, those are a lot of boxes, shit soldiers! Crap stop shooting. Man even more of these boxes, how did they get these in here? Crap, more soldiers, where are these guys coming from?" It can be funny(unlike that part). But it will take a lot of work to make it well, and yo have to count of being able to make stuff up for what the AI does

P.S. I totally did something like Mike at the beginning of the game. Instead of waiting for the train to stop so I could jump to the ladder and get away from the Civil Protection guys, I jumped on, then landed in between the cars and died. Then I did it again and hit my head on a bar. Yay!

I said...

I totally didn't say your instead of you're at that last spot. Anyway, we want Civil Protection. We deserve Civil Protection. Maybe not, but still...

Ross Scott said...

everyone sending me subtitles: thanks, I'll put them up when the website format gets updated

i said: don't worry, I prefer to do CP anyway, but I'm sure I could handle the rest of the game if I was pressed. I'm obviously not going to make a bunch of comments about crates or do the same thing about soldiers each time.

Hallgarth said...

I think both CP and FM are great although I prefer CP because while the background story is based on HL/HL2 the episodes story is entirely your creation, which is awesome!

and poster called "i".
I think it's a 'Resonance' cascade not 'residence' :)

hlfan said...

there is portal machinima
it is called

Portal: A Day in the Life of a Turret

it's pretty funny i hope someone checks it out.

Mushroom Head said...

get the HD pack for HL:S. its the models from blue shift, way better then the original models

LimeyMan9312 said...

There should be an ITunes podcast of this whole idea and series.

Anonymous said...

update plz

Ross Scott said...

anonymous people: I'm still working on this other project, there hasn't been any progress on the series since then, though I promise there will be a real strong effort towards making more episodes after this. I'm even looking at having different groups work on animating different episodes to speed up production. Thanks for your patience, there's going to be a lot of stuff soon.

other anonymous dude: the higher poly models don't translate over well to HL: Source, they acted bugged with their animations. That and I didn't like all of the improvements they had.

Otto said...

Alright guys, that's enough. Try not to completely burst out of the topic and comment here about Dave's feet, Halo 3, Life of Turrent, or Call of Duty 4 because that has absolutely nothing to do with this update.


Advertise somewhere else and keep the comments in the right section, thank you.

karanjhala guy said...

o boy, LOTS OF STUF, ZOUNDS GREAT! looking 4ward to ep5 of cp. i do hAV A QUESTION, is chilledsanity ur youtube account name? so i dont see a phony vid.

karanjhala guy said...

rofl "it sounds l;ike a strip club in here, goddamn!"

Ross Scott said...

otto: Yeah I don't know why people are posting that here either, though in all fairness, I plan to make the forum more visible once the website gets redesigned

kaharanja guy: Yeah that's me, although future episodes will be released under the machinima Youtube channel as they help me out with my own ftp space, publicity, etc. If I expand much beyond HL I may have a new homepage there but that's a ways off

You could give Wordpress a try. I used to have a Blogger account, but I found Wordpress much more convenient and easier to use.

Also, I love your stuff. Keep it up! ;)
