Finally all of the exams are over! I finally had the time to continue making this movie. It's still going to take more time to finish it but I hope I'll finish it this year, because I'll be in the finnish army from 6 to 12 months next year (yeah we have conscription in Finland).
So what did I do today? I scripted and actionscripted one dialog and animated it. The scene is not finished though but still... almost finished. Then I made some special effects or rather re-did some which I felt unsatisfied.
With this animation I'm trying to avoid past mistakes and achieve some real improvement. Well... I've tried that before too but this time I want to succeed in doing so. It just so happens that this is a very important chapter in the series because the story will finally get into a breaking point, so... there will be an enourmous amount of dialog. And because of that it has been difficult to keep it interesting. So I've tried to follow the reviewers' suggestions and advices, so thanks to all of you who have encouraged me and gave me constructive critisisim and even the benefit of doubt. Unfortunately one single chapter cannot repair everything, but it's a step forward!
This upgrade is really awesome so I have to try some of these new features! (like this news posting)
I've been making good progress lately. I'm working on the sixth scene right now so I'm about half a way through making the movie. Characters from Kingdom Hearts will be heavily making appearances in the next chapter, but so are Final Fantasy characters too.
I'm using actionscript to control the conversation scenes and I'm thrilled because it's so much fun! It's nothing special, really simple stuff but I'm just glad I finally learned to do something practical with it. The 16k frame limit bothers me no more since I can exceed it. I'm more concerned about the file size though. I just couldn't reduce the music quality any lower so it wouldn't sound... well... too mono. I have to look into it.
Anyway... Great, great upgrade to this site! Thank you newgrounds!
