NOTE, SOME OF YOU DIDNT ACTUALLY SAY THAT YOU WERE IN IN THE OTHER THREAD, EVEN THOUGH YOU OBVIOUSLY THOUGHT YOU DID. SO ACTUALLY TELL ME O_O;

GUIDELINE-
Ok, so the theme is to have a character break into a castle single handedly.
What you need to do is have him come in from a door on the left, and travel along to the right, and exit through another door.
It'd be great if you used a black stick as the main character, that way they all tie in. Enemies can be any other colour. (Note that you need the stick to be balck at least when he comes through the door and when he exits out the other side. He can power up into a different colour inbetween, anything like that is allowed)

We need one person to do the animation for entering the castle, and we need another to assasinate the king at the end. In fact, Tman's holding a contest to find the best intro/outro. (http://www.stickpageportal.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87774)
If you do one of theses special parts, then you can also do another part as well.
In fact, anyone can do as many parts as you want, although I encourage you to just to one long part rather than two short ones.
It just looks better.

ALSO-
I am seriously against the idea of the un-used section. Either it goes in, or if its not good enough, it doesnt. Sure, if it gets rejected then you can post it all over the internet and stuff like that, I dont mind.
And I dont mind you showing your entry to people, just please dont make threads on SL or in the flash section showing it. So just keep it vaguely private, just to make it so that people havent already seen all the entries.

If you want to use the template, then feel free. Although you dont need to. Its only really for people who are bad at backgrounds or are too lazy to make a good one.

AND REMEMBER TO RENAME YOUR MCS, YOU NOW WHAT TO DO, MAKE THEM "<NAME>HEAD", <NAME>SWORD", ETC.

Also, put your name in the top right-hand corner. You dont have to, but then no-one will know its your work.

Only your character must leave the room! Only him, no other sticks, no dead bodies, no weapons, no rubble or anything like that. Because when it switched to the next anim, the dead body/rubble/weapon/other stick wont actually be there. If you didnt get that, thats no excuse, just dont do it.

Hm. If Ive missed anything then let me know.

You should really check out the SP Contest thread.


Oh wait, well, not really. Seeings as you werent in it.
Well basically, read the SP Collab Ideas thread, then you'll know how it came about.

T Man
06-27-2008, 02:50 PM
nice nice, maybe we should start off the collab by having a comp to see who makes the best intro/outro? just to get everyone started!

also i can be a desinated bg maker

Mesmay
06-27-2008, 02:54 PM
Lol maybe :3

Oh and by the way, people.
T Man is going to choose whether your entry gets accepted into the final animation or not.
So you might have to try a bit harder to live up to his high expectations.

Rather Cheesy
06-27-2008, 04:19 PM
I said I was in in the other thread mesmay. But whatever add me to the list.

The template isn't done yet, but I have the basic parts done, I still have to add all the fancy custom parts...

We should agree on a symbol for the castle that you'll see throughout the entries on doors, tapestries, armor, etc. That way it more signifies that its the same castle...

Apples
06-27-2008, 05:19 PM
Sure, count me in.

Rather Cheesy
06-27-2008, 06:28 PM
Ok I think I've finished, I could add more stuff, but this should be enough. I personally don't like the backdrop I used, so if someone wants to draw a replacement please do.

Ur, does our scene have to be a standard left to right 2d pan?

Or can we, say, have him come into the room via a spirally castle

the colors are too bland, so the stick won't stand out at all. try to fix it up.

Rather Cheesy
06-27-2008, 07:49 PM
ooookkkk... And how would you suggest doing that? All you've said is "its wrong, fix it" ...

T Man
06-27-2008, 08:23 PM
i said the colors are bland lmao.

how about changing the colors, because the sticks wouldn't stand out. this could be done by just like, putting a tint on it?

@Leo; you can make your own, but if you can't draw a decent background you can use my pack.

T Man
06-27-2008, 09:46 PM
not bad. theres nothing wrong with it, but if someone was to use it, it'd be hard to keep track of the person because of the colors.. idk how to explain it. :C

but it's nice C:

Well as long as he comes through a door on the left. It doesnt have to be straight left to right, you know, so you can make him go up levels and down levels as you wish, also he can go through a side door.
I suppose he could come down a staircase, but at the top (like i said) there needs to be a door

I would like to join this, I need to make a good flash animation, and your template inspired me.

So I basically just make a room with the template or a background that I made and animate a black stickfigure coming in on the left side, going though the room, it's obstacles and/or enemies, and then exiting on the right side?

Mesmay

To the dark blue one? Here you go.
http://www.savefile.com/files/1635707

EDIT: You can change the color of the tint by opening the movie clips and highlighting the asset movieclip and change the tint color. Make sure you use dark tints to maintain the grayish color [so you don't have a hot pink castle... >_>] and also remember to RENAME these movieclips and add your name to them so no one overwrites you castle pieces. So if one MC is called "Wall_left1" rename it "Cheesy_Wall_left1"

^_^, this is how I've started to make my backgrounds, anyone can use this castle pack, whether their in the contest or not, its always nice to have good resources.

I'd take your word for it, but I'm not runing the collab, mesmay is [I can give you a hand if you want Mesmay, when you're not on and stuff.] It don't matter much anyways since Mesmay said that only the good entries will be put in, and the bad ones left out. So if he ends up being bad then he just won't be in the collab.

Why don't we just drop this elitist shit and let people in if they're good enough?

Mesmay
06-29-2008, 07:36 AM
Well thats kinda the point bonk >_>

If someone's not going to get into the final collab thing then surely they'd be kinda disappointed, at the end when it doesnt get in? If theyre not going to get into the final one then why let them make an entry when it'll just be rejected?
It makes sense.

mesmay, dont forgot to tell them to rename there sounds and v-cam, not just the movie clips, because some people have difrent sound effects with the same name. and it could mess up the collab

Mesmay
06-29-2008, 09:54 AM
ok thanks :3 I added that

stickmasterx
06-29-2008, 11:32 AM
How about instead of making everyone rename EVERY single symbol that they have, make them move all of their symbols into a folder with their name on it. Would be just as organized and less of a pain to rename hundreds of symbols...

Mesmay
06-29-2008, 11:55 AM
Because that doesnt work. If two movieclips are the same, one overwrites the other one.

Arch-Angel

stickmasterx
06-29-2008, 03:11 PM
Ahh yeah. Didn't think about that. Never mind then. We should still put our stuff in a folder though to keep things even more organized.

Mesmay
06-29-2008, 03:13 PM
well maybe, yes. Good idea, but its not necessary, seeings as Im not exactly going to go and use your MCs at the end, am I?

Mesmay
06-30-2008, 01:41 AM
Good point, added that in the first post.
It must be more than 7 seconds, but no max length.

LN3uq
06-30-2008, 04:41 PM
So I made this a long time ago for an animation I never really started. If anyone wants to use it for the intro/outro/menu or whatever, it's fine with me.
I mean, I thought it was pretty good, and I didin't want it to go to waste when the theme fits it so well.

http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/4194/castlesilhouettezf1.png

Just because I'm not planning on making either an intro or an outro, and I thought other people might want to use it. I've got the fla if anyone wants

Rather Cheesy
06-30-2008, 09:38 PM
Mesmay, on the front page you need to talk about use of weapons, you said before that the stick should have no weapon when he enters and when he leaves, but he can obtain a weapon when hes in the room, so long as he doesn't leave with it.

@strife; I like it, its sorta screamo, but it fits the castle/fighting theme well.

EDIT: Also, put me on the list, I've said i was in 3-4 times now...

Paco
06-30-2008, 09:41 PM

ok for realz i will look.

Strife
06-30-2008, 09:52 PM
So what if it's screamo, essentially all the anims are going to be at least mildly violent, so screamo is ideal.

Arch-Angel
06-30-2008, 10:17 PM
I just hit 4 seconds on mine. So far I think My entry will be around 30 seconds.
Frames: 96
Time: 4.0
Layers: 11
IIL: 90

Yet another question. Does our name have to be on our entry? Like in the corner. Because the Vcam I made has a MC text file of my Username in the top left corner. I could edit it out if you don't want it in.

I'm using RC's Template (OMg it's awesome!). I've done some experimenting around with some cool effects. I might post some examples if the damn internet would go faster =/ And yeah, I've renamed every symbol that I've edited, and in my created symbols, I have _Demi in the name, so they won't be any overwriting if you are planning on putting it all together.

And I have a song suggestion, though it will be a minute before I can post a link to it. Though it will be hard to decide before the collab is complete. The Internet where I am is oo slow, so If you want to hear it, go to Newgrounds Audio portal, It's the fourth song on the best of the week list.

Mesmay
07-01-2008, 01:34 PM

Yeah, you can make it, but dont make the menu just yet, there are some things that need to be decided first, and also you'd need to do scene select etc.
Although if you're just offering to do it because you can code...well I can code, so dont worry about that. I dont know, tell me.

I can make some pretty advanced custom animated menus if you want me to, check out the heavy object collab to see an example...

I'm confused, how are you goin to put all of this together. Because you wanted everyone to start animating from when they bash the door open, so everyone would do the same thing?

Rather Cheesy
07-02-2008, 03:29 AM
noooooo. One person does the first animation which is entering the castle, then the people in the middle animate a guy entering from the left and out from the right. Those can be put into any order. Then some one does the last animation where they behead the king... its pretty straight forward, and its just like my old tower ascent collab [only left to right instead of bottom to top]

ill make it soon and if you don't like it use RC's.

i was thinking though it would be cool if i do it, if the first person helps me out and we make there animation integrated in the menu. so its flawless.

i can show you some really old examples :P

Mesmay

Well, I was going to offer to do it, but then I got too lazy and realized my collab entry will take a while.

Here's another update on my entry.
Frames: 157
Layers: 19
RunTime: 6.5 sec's
IIL: 103

Here's some advice for anyone using Rather cheesy's layout. Make it easier for Mesmay when h puts them all together, by not overloading your frames with the symbols. If you have a pretty big castle room whatever, make a lot of frames, and set a couple of keyframes in there. then delete every background symbol you're not using. I think it'd be easier if I could post a screenshot >.> Basically, if you have 5 rooms, delete the 4 you're not using, until you need them. Or delete anything extra or that you cannot see in the frame. It keeps the file size low for a longer time, and it doesn't lag at all.

Mesmay
07-02-2008, 03:50 PM
Cool. That'd really help, actually people, athough if you cant be asked then thats fine too I guess :P

mraznbuddy
07-02-2008, 03:52 PM
I'm going to get started on mine now. btw shouldnt there be like stair cases where the stick figure goes up one level. a one story castle is too ghetto for a king. O_O"

edit: actually i figured out a way for the bigger/smaller door thing. but is there going to be more floors?

Mesmay
07-02-2008, 03:57 PM
Lol. True, also mine is underground so I guess there'll be plenty of change in bg style etc.

Arch-Angel
07-02-2008, 04:23 PM
Well, In mine the stickfigure lowers 3 floors but raises back to normal elevation.
I suppose it all depends in elevation. If you start at a base of 0, and raise 3 . Then it'd be like stairs. If you can put the example together.

Also, It's good to work on artwork, so if you want to make stairs or a spiral staircase for your animation, you should. I made a whole lot of new symbols using the same layout as RC's template.

Rather Cheesy
07-02-2008, 04:30 PM
Its good to hear that people are getting some use out of my template ^_^. I might make more templates later [of different backgrounds themes, just for fun, not for the collab]

@Paco & Mesmay; then I'm doing the menu then? OK, I'll hold off on making it until further along in the collab when we get a better idea of how it will turn out so I can make the menu suit it right...

Mesmay
07-02-2008, 04:35 PM
Well I think I already said (even though it wasnt directed at you)
that you're going to have to wait until the end anyway, because
a) I want the menu to fit in with the opening part (which will be decided later)
b) you need to know where the scene selects are going to send to. Also you need to have screens for people to click on to go to different scenes.

Is it okay if I double frame everything? You know, so it shows it as 12FPS, but it's really 24. I'm not sure if I should though. It looks cool fast, and then again, you can keep up a lot better and see everything at 12. It's confusing.

haha, Le3uq's avatar. Wall-E is awesome.

This is an update to where I am ATM.
Frames: 364
Time: 15.1 seconds
ItemsInLibrary: 135
Layers: 24

This is probably my best flash animation, probably because I'm actually trying to make it look good. It has some pretty sweet effects(Awesome fire =]) and trails. Kick ass blood. Though the template is pissing me off now =] Had to completely redo the backdrop and move the entire stage multiple times. It's still coming out nicely though. I have some pretty awesome fights and stuff towards the end. I was going to add an entire second part where he gets eaten and, well you know how super mario would do it? Or legend of zelda, make a dungeon inside of a monster or something. I had some ****ing sweet symbol animated skeleton fights, then the computer ****ed up on me. So no more that =]

Anyone else care to update where they are, or at least make sure that more than about 5 people are aniamting in this collaboration?

Yeah I know what you mean by the dungeon/room in the monster, sounds cool. Yes double framing is fine.

So yes you can make your own, or adapt the blocks in anyway you want. Thats ok isnt it RC? it shouldnt mess up too bad...

@SNL- I could do your bg for you, providing it gets in. So just do the white room thing, black and white (you know what i mean) then Ill go over it.
Although that'll mean that 3 rooms'll look kinda similar, but thst doesnt matter that much. I guess the people using the template (bricks) will have similar bgs too.

If you want to do that, then just draw the bg out of black lines, and then Ill go over it later.
Although, of course, this will resrict you- you wont be able to do any complex interaction with the bg (eg breaking chunks out of it) because Ill be doing the final bg and I really dont wanna re-animate all of your debris and everything like that too, cos thats pushing it really =/

The sticks you're using seem awfully small, demi. I intend the template for a stick twice that size >_>

But whatever, I'm sure it'll come out fine so long as Mesmay can find a way to put them in the right order so the decrease in size isn't as noticeable...

Or perhaps we could add a section to the animation that explains that every room in the castle tends to have different effects on the people in the room, and that room would just be the shrink room =P

You should defiantly modify it if you get the time, It would make it look better, IMO.

Another thing you should modify(If you want to), is just go onto the frame with the bolder when it's halfway down the slope, and add a blur filter to it, only for one or 2 frames. If you do, it should be 2X 2Y. So it doesn't look stupid.

It could work.
I got a pretty cool Idea for the menu, though I suck at ActionScript.
Okay, so the main character enters the castle, Well, for the selection screen, it should be like a side scroller. One arow pointing left, one pointing right, In the center is an open door which plays the whole animation. there are doors on each side of the main door and above them is a sign for who's entry it is, this would be your scene selector.

If you don't understand, I could draw something up in flash as an example.
but the point is, when you hover over an arrow, like the left arrow. The screen moves to the left like you're turning your head.

Paco
07-07-2008, 01:22 AM
i could do it if someone would just draw it, i get what your saying,
like you walk the character left and right and press up to enter one of several doors along a wall?

actually if you draw it ill give you the AS, its simple.

i see what your saying, someone should draw it and talk to me on msn and i will help.

Arch-Angel
07-07-2008, 01:30 AM
Not like a sidescroller game. Just moveing side to side to view the doors, like moving a Vcam if you think about it like that. Just so you can see what is off screen, the AS for clicking the doors to take you to a certain frame is simple, I know that AS. Just to move side to side for a cooler effect for the animation.

No, but when you go into the scene select, you can just walk through the castle to the point which you want.
(And by the way, dont worry, I can do the AS >_> Im not that dumb. I can make simple platformers)

And it'd be like a long corridor, with doors along the back wall, with names over the doors, and you just have to press up when in front of a door to enter. Seems pretty cool to me.

Also you could have little trapdoors which lead onto extras, you know that kinda thing but theyre harder to find...

Looks like Im going to have to find something to make mine interesting and original. Giant Battle laser cannon robot? Sure why not =D

Ok, this is like THE best song for this

http://youtube.com/watch?v=FfEJU4KUEkk&feature=related

its called Transylvania by Iron Maiden. Although its instrumental its stil a crazy good song, for this. I think it matches perfectly to the theme and gives a decent amount of time to makea good intro.

there isn't a better video of that one... just go to "the sharktopus" myspace. cuz that song will fit great.

SNL

Dude c'mon none of those songs come close to fitting, i think my choice is good. I mean everybody has there choice of music, and im cool with that, but if your going to choose music like that choose something that goes well with the theme.

Also, i want to here mesmay's opinion on the song choice

T Man
07-07-2008, 12:23 PM
wtf, are you kidding with me?

your song is really really dull and hella slow.

the songs i suggested have an epic build up and then it's hardcore. but w/e floats your boat.

If it's a fighting theme, then how the hell does a dull music work with it? hardcore is a must. plus, nothing fits with iron maiden, it's ****ing old.

SNL
07-07-2008, 12:50 PM
Well, im not saying i dont like alternative rock i just prefer not to have a screamo song. Yes, iron maiden is old this was back when they had there first singer aswell (1970's) but the collab is based on medieval stuff, it would sound really weird if you have some new aged screamo in it thats all. Try to find a pleasing instrumental song, i think no singing would be best.

T Man
07-07-2008, 01:36 PM
if you're wanting a medieval song, than find some flute music, that's their music from way back then.

old music wouldn't fit with this imo.

it would just make the collab seem VERY boring.

what's wrong with screamo? i mean, there's gonna be blood and gore in the collab, then whats wrong with screamo? as strife said with A Skylit Drive.

new age rock would bring this collab up, and make it more exciting, rather than a boring song.

Paco, shut the **** up and stop acting like a child.
We cannot really decide on a music choice until the collab is put together.

Though it won't hurt to throw some suggestions out there.
I personally think Chaoz Impact from Newgrounds would play good during the collab.

Mesmay
07-07-2008, 02:45 PM
Well Attack by SOAD might not be the best idea anyway because of that long bit at the start... Unless the intro is pretty long.

@Demi- Hm, it very short, although I do like it... You see, this is the problem- we dont know how long the anim is, so we cant really choose any atm anyway.
(Although we can hazard guesses and pick music at around that length)

ok bye thread.

SNL
07-07-2008, 03:11 PM
For SOAD, i would say

1. Attack (ask someone who knows how to edit a song.)

2. Highway Song (freakin awesome but has a tad slow parts)

3. U-fig (has a 17 sec intro once again just edit it)

Misc.

1. Fuel-Metallica

2. Eyeless-Slipknot

3. Scream-Slipknot

4. Don't Get Close-Slipknot

Thats it for now

I suggest you have someone Exilement/The Jawz/Audix/Krob (ahha, just kidding) make some music for the collab once it's done. That way the music could perfectly match the pace of the animation and it would be purely instrumental so stupid words don't get in the way.

Mesmay
07-08-2008, 01:37 AM
Yeah, we considered that originally, but then we cant have that as a definate option. We cant force them to make some.

Well didn't exilement volunteer anyways?

I think most of them would jump at the chance because their getting their epic music in an epic animation that represents an entire community.


And I know making a song, from what I've heard from Audix, it doesn't take that long, maybe like 3-4 hours.

Ok wow,

Frames: 330
Layers: 22
Items: 71
Length: 13.7 seconds
Double Spaced.

Well this was my longest animation, and it is also my first real animation in over four months.

So it turned out a lot better than I thought.

You twisted the animation in the last shot. the door looks all weird and stuff, its kinda choppy to, but thats to be expected when double spaced, why don't you just go over it again with onion skins and smooth it out? 330 frames isn't that much. [compared to 4320 frames for the SPP contest >_>] I liked how you made that room green and all the enemy sticks green as well. Are you allowed to have a different color filled head for the main character though?
