Kinky.
Hope you have that final track still on you.
Oh, is that all wanted? Now I'm disappointed.
I haven't forgotten that you've plans to do the credits as well. But that will come later when all the tracks are done. Which isn't that far off, either.

Uh, /revivalpoke?

Just dropping in to say that we're about to start compiling everything now. Woot.

During this time, we may have to contact people individually for stuff. So stay tuned.

Alright, Oto is alive and Oto is well-aware of what's left.

I've got myself oriented.

Basically I will start working on the intro this week simultaneously with other stuff, which includes getting the final copies of the tracks in order and ready for putting together - pending the one-or-two tracks that may be left.
I have a vague bunch of ideas for the intro, but I think I'll keep them mostly to myself until beta time. If anyone wishes to participate in this process, or even wants to toss in ideas about what they might want to see in the intro - I'm around a lot these days.

My current plan for the final release is still the same. I've been thinking about compression options, but unless people are strongly (and vocally in favour) of a fancy h264 release - I plan a conventional, 640x480 24fps XviD for the final. I'll be discussing this with Jasper and Orwell, and whoever else wants in, once we actually have a full project.

Now, there was ONE nasty problem (there always is one, huh): Zaphod Beeblebrox has disappeared off the face of the .org and has not responded to messages since early october. I do not have his final track, and his beta was not even complete - forget quality concerns. The current plan for that is "oto to the rescue!", where I plan to take the same anime he used and pull a similar idea. I think that would be more than fair.

Otherwise thanks again to everyone who participated. I would really like to promise a release in mid-January, and it's looking realistic-ish right now.

Okay, just to confirm:

I got all the tracks that were on Bakadeshi's server. That leaves two that I still need to get (which shouldn't be a problem) and one that will need to be re-made.

IMPORTANT THINGY!

I'm going to pester everyone about artist/song/anime information shortly. You may as well PM it to me if you see this message :P

I say it all depends on size. If the xvid is say 100 meg and the h264 is 80 meg well, who really cares? If the xvid is 200 meg and the h264 is 150 meg then we're starting to talk where it makes sense to do h264. Given the length of the project I suspect we're getting into the area where the size savings actually make a difference. OTOH h264 is, currently at least, harder to play back for most people. Ideal would be to have both although that'd require external hosting.

Be honest. Use what you have and just pop up a short 'We could not get a final copy from this user. Here is the beta that was used to generate lines for the segment after it'. You might want to openly mock him for abandoning things as well but that's up to you.

Or we could take the other route and blatantly fake it, which would require slightly tweaking the title that comes before it and pretend the segment wasn't there at all :P

To be honest, I wanted to try another track myself and this is a good excuse; if that fails, then we'll take one of the other routes. :roll:

I think it'd be okay to blatantly author a replacement track and then admit that we did. In a long project like this, I think we're allowed just one fudge.

There is always room for fudge.

Sorry guys, I've been really bogged down with real life lately, if you've already got to compiling this thing then i won't be able to get anything done, and i'll be honest, my vid was shite anyway, if you want it i think i've still got the Huffy somewhere but if not: do what you will, i have no right to object.

Sorry again.

Update >> Track done. Will pass it by a beta tester first to make sure I didn't miss any mistakes, and upload to FTP.

Dude, you're alive!

Actually, I have a problem. I don't think I have Hellsing footage :roll:

If you have a Huffy that you'd like to send - that'd be great. Otherwise I will try to poke a couple of other people (madbunny?), and if that doesn't work - Plan B - we bluff :P
