A new Sister site opens. A deadline, forgotten.

I have decided to put Menagerie on hold because talking about what I could do in Intelligence 1.2 has made me think of what could be, and I've decided to start on that, especially since I'm at a roadblock with Menagerie progress now.

So this probably means 3/14/2012 for a release date won't be a thing, deadlines are just a reason to make one nervous, and I have no obligation to such a deadline to no one but myself.

I think Intelligence is still quite a big shot anyway, working on two games at once is a migraine.

So without further adue, the Intelligence patch 1.2 Sister site is open and I have already made a pretty user bar below the link to the games thread, have fun fellas!

Also, just thought I'd let ya'll know its my 24th birthday tomorrow.

ACTA must not pass!

Yet another huge ass bill like SOPA/PIPA is coming around, called ACTA (Anti-Counterfeit Trading Act) which is likely just as or even more dangerous than the original two bills, if you want to help act out against this, if you like the freedom you have on the internet, please consider doing a quick sign up here and keep Internet a place where we can freely exchange ideas, play awesome games, watch videos and all that good stuff.

Two minutes of your life can add so much to the life of our freedom.

Intelligence 1.2 Sister site on the way.

So yeah, I've recently been fondly regarding Intelligence as a thing to work on, since I'm rather stuck on Menagerie.

I'll be using VX until a system similar to Tankentai comes around. (I know about Ramiro's SBS, and it will likely be what I used once it has more documentation.)

So expect an Intelligence 1.2 sister site soon.

Silly congress, you dont ever learn, do you?

So yeah, PIPA and SOPA were shelved again, just this time it was more obvious because congress were making a big song and dance about it.

This isn't the first time its happened, its just the first time its been noticeable.

And while it isn't over just yet, this is a big victory, since Congress decided to make a big sonce and dance about this, and failed anyway, what more can they do? Throw candy every which way?

Its not happening, if they failed again after all this time and with such a massively sported campaign, SOPA and PIPA are all but memories of the past, reminders to remain weary of such bills.

I'd like to thank everyone who voted against this ludicrous nonsense and helped keep the internet a place of freedom, I'd like to thank anonymous for scaring the shit out of the government, being a coding wrecking ball and making the world a better place at the same time.

I voted against this poppycock myself, but due to me being situated in an island that looks like a demented apple core, that is about all I could do, I alerted any of my american friends of the danger this bill posed, and through everyones actions against this bill, we came through with shining colours before the case began.

Here's a final thank you, and may it hold in reverance those which have come.

Oh Dick Smith, you're the one, who makes shopping, loads of fun!

I decided it was time to get some speakers that aren't terrible, so I went down to dick smith and oh man.

Logitech $50 Speakers reduced to $35, man, these things are awesome. I'll never use my monitor speakers again so long as I live.

The Audio quality is so good, so good its delicious.

Anyway, since my talking about Ace seems to be the attention grabber on this blog for some reason, lets do the sane thing and not talk about Ace.

Instead I'm just going to show you a trailer for Intelligence 1.1 I made ages ago.
And let you know Menagerie is being made in RPG Maker VX Ace, because I have it now, and have you guys to thank.

Google's a useless piece of shit.

Also, Gonna let you all know, Saints Row 3 is amazing, and I highly recommend it. I was voice 3 (sounds like a british sergeant) and in a dog suit. So I was playing a foul mouthed dog who used guns and shit.

Grand Theft Auto ain't got shit on this.

Oh yeah, I made some sweet new art for Safiercat(from intelligence), or as he will soon be called, Safael.

This one turned out to be the favourite, to be honest I'm not surprised, they're very nice wings.

So Incase it wasn't obvious...

Yes the site went through a shithive maggots crazy renovation, and a sister site has been made to accompany it.

I decided to get creative, even making some awesome Userbars into some link picture widgets.

My avatar, as you may have noticed, has undergone quite a transformation too, all kinds of crazy up in here, Dev has been going well with Menagerie, and thus, the sister site is to house that, this blog is still for me to vent about practical horseshit in a slurry of truetype terror, that of the Arial kind.

Arial Bold, that is.

I got sick of my text being noodle thin so i bolded it all up, much easier to read, much more dignified.

If you were curious, the picture in the background is Soulstorm Brewery from Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus.

I know it doesn't have two D's regularly, but its oddworld.

Making user bars is a lot of fun when you have more than 32 pixel height to work with. I decided to throw my own template together using GIMP, an old Windowskin of whom i don't know the creator, and snagit 9.

Using layers makes shit way easier and a lot more modifiable. Its the main reason I didn't have to cut shit of the way even if it hit the border, because it was under it.

I have acquired RPG Maker VX Ace, and am making Menagerie into something hopefully memorable!
