It's 2018 and it's another year to be filled with Madness! ⁽ᴵ ᵏⁿᵒʷ ᴵ'ᵐ ⁴ ᵈᵃʸˢ ˡᵃᵗᵉ ᶠʳᵒᵐ ᵗʰᵉ ᵗᶦᵐᵉ ᴵ ˢᵃᶦᵈ ᴵ ʷᵒᵘˡᵈ ᵐᵃᵏᵉ ᵗʰᶦˢ ⁿᵉʷˢᵖᵒˢᵗ⁾
Haloooo, 2017 was a pretty cool year for me in this community, it wasn't a good year for me productivity-wise but all the things that I've improved on by a bunch lot like sprite making and animating have made me really proud of how much I've learned. I have a lot of things planned for this year and I'm really motivated to get started on some of them.
I won't be showing any sprites or tests for this news post because I want to keep my work to myself this time.
---Madness Archive Volunteers Needed!---
As many of you already know, @Seancglover made this post about converting every single madness animation that are only in swf form to a 4K mp4 file for an archive. He has recently streamed himself converting some madness day animations and only got 3 out of the 600 animations converted after many hours. He has also stated that this will take years to get done. I think that we should help him out a lot more than just suggesting animations that should be put into the archive. So, I've PM'd him about my idea of getting volunteers for the archive and he liked the sound of it.
Right now its just me and him that are converting these and were still not enough to get every single madness animation converted in a year or less. So we need some people (at least 5 according to Sean) who are willing to volunteer in this and do it for the community.
-How It Will Work-
What my idea was for the volunteers is that a they would be split into groups and be assigned to convert all of the animations for one of the madness days or all the madness animations that weren't made specifically for madness day for one of the years. The picture above is an example of how this idea would work out.
The only things really required to become a volunteer at the moment is to have a decent PC (like gaming ones) with a good CPU and to have Swivel. You can ask Sean if there's anything that you have a question about or need more details about.
That's all that I've wanted to say, hope some of you guys have the time to volunteer and help us out! C:
