TSW is in a bit of a depression.. well, it's more me.. For some reason, since my Harddrive crashed and i lost everything from between august 2008-to-May 2009, my depression has been.. well, not major but deep down i just can't get into things.. but that's a side note really and not really something to worry about.. I'm not going anywhere..<br /><br />The problem is, TSW isn't either.. With most of the voice cast just up and dispearing without trace and some people saying that will or might help and not coming through, there has been some problems. At the Moment, i will tell you 100% why the next Episode of TSWA isn't out yet.<br /><br />Tikal! A Major character for the Episode and we don't have a voice for her. So far, she has appeared in two episodes and both times with a different VA.. And at the moment, we don't have one for her. Other major roles are lacking too but most male roles can be dealt with and i hope to deal with a couple of female roles soon.. which basicly means i MIGHT be able to get someone to do Tikal but it would end up with about 2 girls doing all female roles.. tricky.<br /><br />TSW X-treme .... i kinda don't want to talk about right now. In them last months, i worked on a whole new and great engine, a fantastic script controlled in-game cutscene engine too.. I have lost all that. I'm very close to just either releasing an old engine version of the game or just putting all the cutscenes and what has been done together and releasing that.. Trying to do all this on my own is a job.. Well, if i can get into it, i might be able to get something right... but for now, its in the can.<br /><br />TSW- Whirlwind's Story<br />It's IN Production! Problem is, at the moment it's a case of getting people to do their lines.. I won't go into them problems right now but it IS in production! that's good news<br /><br />TSW comic<br />hee.. Well.. It's just will power again.. The one Mini-series i have been working on (but then gave up for a long time) which is floating between Mini-series and Big special is still slowly moveing.. I will say so far, i think i'm about half way down and that's page 25. It looks great and should be good when it comes out.<br /><br />TSW Audios- Most are on hold due to cast problems and stuff, but i wanna look into a couple of things which should help speed stuff up no problem. I just need to check something for someone..<br /><br />This has been another status report.. Wanna help? Simple.. Look at the Contact page, you can see e-mail addresses to contact people or their is a simple contact form to fill in ^_^
What do i have now? Just i got the Covers up for the other two Sonic Audios and i have added a Honey Nut Cheerios Advert that featured Sonic in the clips section (Articles & Misc). I'm pretty sure the voice of the bee later to be name via a Contest (and to sound alot like a old UK character), Buzzbee, is Billy West, and i'm basicly told a guy called Andy Morris did the narrator's voice.. Why a Ex UK footballer does a US advert, I got no clue.. I don't know any other guy by that name.. Oh well.
Added 5 new Pictures to the Model sheets Section in the Gallery, these feature Robotnik, I hope to have better versions just as soon as i can remember the name and get one nice free art program i had.. yeah, it was a great program ^_^)<br /><br />And i have fixed the Images on the gallery (the background and Bar..) for some reason, they didn't want to display but that do now, which is good ^_^
For people that want to contact us but can't be bothered to use the Contact page to get our E-mails and then e-mail us, now there is a Contact form on that page. Just fill in three boxs and click submit!<br />So much quicker right? So i hope to hear from you guys soon ^_^
Archie Comics have annoiced a 192 page book 'Sonic the Hedgehog: Who's Who'. This first one, Volume 1 of course (Which hints at more doesn't it?) will be on sale on the 3rd of March next year (that's 2010 for people that don't know).<br /><br />What will it be like? No clue. By the sounds of it, it will probebly be there normal Sonic range as a whole, not just classic stuff.. So far now, i don't have much intrest and the backtext preview sound that intresting to me..<br /><br />"What is Sonic's dog's name? Who's the robo-villian who knocks his foes down like bowling pins? Where is the Special Zone? What powerful force Angel Island afloat? Follow the blue Blur through Mobius and beyond in this encyclopedic look at the world of Sonic the Hedgehog, complete with character profiles and storyline recaps in easy-to-use reference format!"<br /><br />Writen be Mike Pellerito and Victor Gorelick Who both work on doing bits for the 'who's who' in the Archive series, it might be of intrest, or it might not. Time will tell.. even more so when i find a cover shot ^_^ Information should appear in the TESP Archives shortly
Okay.. Not ONLY the Sonic 1 (US) GG manual, but the Spinball (US), Sonic 2 (JP) and Tails Adventure (JP) manuals too. I have been busy eh? Still don't expect them to be prefer, there is a limit amount that can be done. Enjoy
Well.. what's new right now? not too much.. just updated the Sonic 2 US game Gear Manual with a better copy as part of some of the cleaning up i said about the other day.<br /><br />I wonder if i'll get around to having the Sonic 1 US game Gear one by the end of the day? time will tell..
The feature has been set up in the Game guides for along time now, and i finally got a use for it ^_^, The feature is Image Gallery!<br />If you look on the Image Gallery, you will see a new section which has game artworks, So far, mostly cover Art. I have 16 Pieces of Cover Art for different Sonic Games. You can access the art either via the Image Gallery or the game guides page. Hope you enjoy ^_^
Due to .. well, i think it was basicly my old laptop mointor being a little brighter then it should have been (not my doing), it seams alot of images that i have to work on and clean up, came out not whiter than white. While i think i need to go though alot of the manuals and clean them up more, so far, i have done the alot to the image gallery. so.. ALL the Drawing guides and Model Sheet folder has been improved and most of the animation characters folder. So all them lovely Model Sheets are now in great nick!<br /><br />If people would have pointed out this stuff to me, i could have fix them earlyer but there you go.. Also, i have added the bonus stage image to Chaotix (Game Guide). Hope you guys enjoy all the hard work i put in around here.. If you do? why not just click on a couple of ad bars each time you are here? you don't need to buy anything, it just helps pay the hosting bills ^_^
Added a French Sonic & Knuckles Printed Advert to the site and also my English translation of the advert so you see the advert twice and it's not amazingly bad.<br /><br />The problem? not to do with that but i just noticed when i upload the one gif some time bad, it didn't upload right so the file is damaged.. I'll see if i have a backup of it.. If not, could be a problem for a bit. Oh wel
