  • YAY :D Thanks for these! They're even backdated to before I was around, this is gonna be fun :) awesomesauce!
  • *Fistpump

    @Edg3 thank you for all the effort. First one buffering now :)
  • Thanks again for the effort @edg3, they're awesome :) Are we going to add them to the umbrella makegamessa channel? I can't find it anymore, youtube says it's closed?
  • yeah when I can get it all sorted out. Tired of Youtube right now :(

    The official advice was "delete your channel and remake it and it will ask you to verify", which didnt work, and I couldnt use the same channel name after...

    OMG Google retards. This recalls the whole Facebook username fuckup. I had two usernames, one for my page one for my personal page. I wanted to SWAP THOSE TWO AROUND......... And basically couldn't. It was (still is) retarded.

    Thanks a mil for sorting it out :) I'll do some digging and if I come up with something I'll let you guys know...
  • Ok I've created a Youtube User for MakeGamesSA and verified it, @edg3 I've sent you the links/details vi email :)
    Thanked by 2Tuism EvanGreenwood
  • @LexAquillia many thanks, for some reason I couldnt verify the account after last months meet apparently.
  • @edge3 Nice stuff. It feels like makegamessa now has a video archive. Schwweeeett!
  • Ok, updated to have the video for the Oct meet in CT, and as links are available to me I will update the links for the JHB one, and I apologise in advance for bad/incorrect/missing names for the JHB one as I wasn't there.

    Sigh my encoding and upload queue is long...

  • Was any video taken of the November CT meet?
  • Hi Guys. I'm back at AFDA and editing away at the November meet up
    @LexAquillia's talk (on getting the government to pay for you to go overseas) is about ready but its 40mins on its own. Should I upload it as its own video seeing as its not directly game dev but more a supporting game dev video where as the other talks are directly related to games?
  • Upload each talk as its own video? That way they can all be in the playlist/channel and people can watch what they like :) Sound like a good idea?
  • Sounds great to me.

    Hey Guys
    I made a intro sequence for MGSA but I cant sound design good :P
    Im thinking something 8bit-ish to go with the theme.
    here is a link to the vid if there are any takers?

  • Jwho303 very cool! :D Love the colour cycling! :D

    I was watching Wreck It Ralph and I loved the way their pixels pop! Pop pop pop! :D
  • @Tuism Thanks man! just expanding on your really cool design :)
    I also updated your Illy file to have white pixels (to avoid black heart syndrome)
    Ah I want to watch Wreck it Ralph! Can you find a ref of this pixel popping?
    I did a version with sound and it seems ok. Maybe it needs some like background ambiance or something
    Thanked by 1francoisvn
  • Dude! That's awesome :) Well done. Can we use it?
  • @Jwho303 check this trailer out, there's a bit of that pixel popping in there :)

    But really it's awesome already :)
  • Thanks for arranging these talks & for also filming them.
    Helps guys like me who haven't been able to come each week, only been once 0_0

    Making games part time & working a day job has it's challenges.
  • On the topic of Wreck-it-Ralph: Everyone should go see it. That is all.
