  1. Hey everyone! With updated forum software comes updated responsibility... or something. Unfortunately, during the update the Invision Board people created a new skin (as you can see). This has effectively knackered support for all the Sonic skins we had previously made. Sucks a bit, I know. On the other hand, there's an opportunity to give the SSMB something of a lil' updated makeover whilst adopting these new changes and features. I'll be working here and there over the week on tweaking a few things, so please excuse the dust - and hang in there while everything looks so strange/default.
  2. Good evening. Okay, I believe I briefly mentioned this in my showcase topic. I was considering using that topic for this, but figured it could get pretty confusing. Also though about using the previous animation topic, but considering how many changes I made, I thought it best to start with a new one. So, who remembers this? I'd hate to come across as dragging this out, but to be honest, an animation was going to be the next stage of this project from almost the beginning. I also wanted to keep a couple of my favourite ideas from the original animation project we had planned, while hopefully changing things in a way that will make things easier for those that have not fully mastered there chosen art form. Like me wanting to help with the animation, I'd say I'm below a beginner in terms of skill. ^^; Currently the project does not have a deadline! So what's different? Well the original suggested an episodic type of deal with stories and dialogue. This new version doesn't need dialogue or sound effects, because if will follow alone with the chosen music. It also has a basic story that I came up with, completely by accident. There's a story?? Yes, the whole thing turned into one big metaphor. I'll write it in a spoiler tag. What did you keep? One of the key ideas I think we all like from the original is that SSMB is represented as a town or city. With buildings representing different topics of sections of the board. Why did you show that pic again?? Did I not say? ...oops, heheh. The characters featured in the animation will be the same characters featured in that image. Possibly also including those in the "DLC" list and a couple of special guests too. But I can't promise everyone will make the cut. Please don't be offended if your not featured, it wont be personal. I have chosen the condition that if a character is feature in a dance segment, they wont appear in the story segments. What's the music? Well I've always had a song playing in my head when thinking about it. So I'd nominate Crush 40s Sonic Youth. But if anyone has a better idea, please share. It's not set in stone yet, but I'd suggest picking a song as one of the first things to be done as it helps determine how long the video will be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ-jrf9UuGM Also toying with the idea of a second song that could play during an end credits type section. If anyone has any ideas. We could also use a completely customized song from one of our musical members if everyone can agree on one. Here's a possible end credit theme suggested by KaBlamJamDan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrqXpYwS9nI What do you need? Well, we don't really have to assign each member with a certain task for the moment, if that makes it easier. Just do whatever you feel like. But in terms of tasks, I'd say these: Several designs for buildings and areas within the SSMB City. I'd personally like a park area with a solid gold Sonic statue in the centre and a train station, for the hype train to travel alone. Half of the video will take place in "The Badlands" an area with a similar look to the place that Roadrunner and Wile E Coyote live. So we'd need designs for that too. Designs for the dance segments, places like on stage in dance halls or on a random street. Maybe even a fancy colourful background with lots of shapes. Members that aren't confident in drawing designs still want to help in some way, if would be cool if they located screenshots or art from the games that can be incorporated into the animation. Like a screenshot of the blimp in Radical Highway. It'll make things easier for the designers if a link for reference material was just in reach. I'll add links to all the concepts, reference material and any other useful stuff in the opening post. Props, we might need special props designed too. Anything that will give the backgrounds a little more character. Mostly just designing the areas the characters will be at. Once we have a solid collection of designs, the best ones are picked and need to be draw a clean version of, so it can be used as a background. Other jobs will include the optional creating a music track if it is desired, while the animation doesn't need to begin until much later. No doubt I'm forgetting something, but lets move on. So, the reason I called the story a big metaphor is because of what the monster represents. I've named him "Doubt" and his massive size represents a wall. So the character represents a wall of doubt that prevents you from moving forward. That is also why the citizens couldn't defeat it on there own. Consider Sonic representing all video games, hobbies, TV show or whatever you use to motivate and inspire you. That's why Sonic could easily beat it. Here's a quick size guide I mocked up: I also planned to reference a peace of art Inferno created. I've been sketching very rough panels to try and show what's playing in my head. The Inferno art I'm talking about is here: I also jotted down a segment I call "Rooftop Run" featuring Gabe. These sketches don't do my vision justice. I always picture Gabe leaping from buildings similar to how Sonic jumps to each rock in the Sonic CD intro. That would look awesome, if we could achieve it. Dance segment?? What do you mean by that? I haven't properly covered what I meant by dance segment. But I suspect the other otaku of the boards know what I meant. I should still cover it for those that might not know. These gifs in the spoiler tag are pretty much what I'm talking about when I refer to the dance segments. Just like in the gifs, each dancer are doing the same moves, regardless of how many there is.

  3. Not a big issue, but for the past couple of days I've not been able to sign in from the SSMB home page. I load it up, click sign in and the pop-up to enter your user name and password doesn't appear. The little green loading thing at the top appears for a second or two, but then it disappears. However, if I go anywhere else on the SSMB and click sign in, the pop-up appears fine.
  4. Hey everyone! I had a fun Idea, I wanted to try and write the "Twas the Night before Christmas", Staring us! Now, You can request to be apart of it, and if you can see where you would fit in to my story, you may post suggestions Now, there will be a few little rules for my story collab okay? 1. It has to be safe for kids to read. Why? Well... lets just say, I don't like stories with sexual content or cursing, I can accept some humorous partying and such to be in the story. ( I just can't put my name on a story with cursing ) 2. I will try and fit people in in the order they request to be added, that way I can fit as many as possible. 3. Any tidbits you want to submit must be in the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" style, for example: "Twas the Night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for Captain Dwibbs" it does not have to rhyme though, just maintain a rhythm (If you can;'t get it that way, I can help ya out . ) So that is my rules, and yeah, if you want to submit pieces for the story, I would be glad to try and add them And if more people are willing to write for it, I can make a list and put it in an order so you know which part you will be writing then . I think to avoid confusion, you should post actual written parts via PM, and Ideas and requests to be included can be discussed here . I hope this goes well and that we can all have fun! ( Oh yeah, any written parts will be credited to their authors ) EDIT: Okay, i am going to give a little leway for some side story stuff, as long as it does not interfere with the flow of the poem too much. Thanks Kablamjamdan for posting the link for the original poem. (post below) And I will post some more inspiration of what I am shooting for here:
  5. ------------------------------- Hello, all of SSMB. =D Since for the past month or so we've been racing each other using the online multiplayer function on the game, Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS. Since everyone has been loving it so far, I have had an idea to hold Mario Kart 7 tournaments every weekend, and Monday and Tuesday. The tournament begins at 7:15 PM EST those days. Registration will last until March 9, so there is plenty of time to enter! For us to have easy contact on the 3DS, add and trade friend codes. We will use the SSMB community, which JezMM had created, and will be used for the tournaments. 1 tournament consists of five matches, which is 4 races for each match. Whoever wins gets the tournament that day will get a variety of prizes that will be mentioned later here. If you do not have a 3DS, or the game, Mario Kart 7, you cannot participate in the tournaments. THE RULES 1. Race fair. 2. NO Action Replay or hacking of any sort. 3. Do not brag or boast if you win, it only brings down people's confidence and morale, everyone here is a winner. You may mean it as a joke though. 4. Do not choose the same stage over and over to annoy people. 5. HAVE FUN RACING! ----------- PRIZES 1st PLACE: Get a gold MK7 badge as an award 2nd PLACE: Get a silver MK7 badge as an award. 3rd PLACE: Get a bronze MK7 badge. 4th PLACE: MK7 Tournament Racer Badge. 5th PLACE: MK7 Tournament Racer Badge. Others: MK7 Tournament Racer Badge. Skill Badges: Golden Bullet: Win 1st place in at least 3 tournaments. Silver Sneaker: Win 2nd place in at least 3 tournaments. Bronze Booster: Win 3rd place in most (3) tournaments. (Badges have not been approved yet, and are still conceptual.) ------------------ SSMB COMMUNITY CODE: 64-8368-2641-3135 MY 3DS FC: 0817-3759-4156 HOST: Dr. Felix (Meeee. =U) The tournament will work like a survival island sort of thing, the best racers race and race, and make it to the semi-finals, the finals, and whoever wins is the winner of the tournament. Main matches: 4-5 weeks Judging matches: 1 week Semi-finals: 1-2 weeks Finals: 2 days -------------------- That's all! HAVE FUN RACING~!
  6. Well, since this is probably the only place the post this.. might as well say something. I've created a little wiki about SSMB, though it is pretty empty right now, you can help contribute. Make anything related to this site's history, members, events, etc. Here's a link. I made this to wiki in order to get people familiar with oru community, and have a little bit of fun doing it. a.k.a boosting our egos dur -Sean So yeah, decide what you wanna do. (. .)
  7. TSS is 11 years old! Woo! So here's a little surprise for all of you - I've been working really hard inbetween whatever spare time I've had to bring back Sonical - just as classic as you remember it, but updated for today's IPB features and whatever the future brings for SSMB! The header's probably what you'll notice the most. Remember when Roarey asked for the lot of you to design custom banners for The Sonic Stadium? We're using these on random rotation on both TSS and SSMB to celebrate its 11 years of existence! Some of them look really cool, especially with looping backgrounds. But there are some fantastic 'narrow' banners too, which work really well with the 'zigzag' looping background that the skin defaults to. SEGASonic Radio is the second big thing on the skin. It takes full prominence in the topbar, and you can see exactly what song is playing on the 24/7 stream (and what album it's from!). When a LiVECAST is taking place, you'll know about it right there too. Simply click on the green button - or anywhere on the radio 'now playing' text to launch the SSR popup window. From there you can listen to Sonic music, LiVECASTs and chat live with fellow Sonic fans in the IRC chat room. As is always the case, I'm certain to have missed a few small colour or design things here and there - please feel free to point out anything in a specified topic I will soon make in the Bugs and Feedback Forum.
