Short-Factor's News

Posted by Short-Factor - September 8th, 2008

By September 14th, I will be moved out into a new place to stay 40 miles away from where I currently live. I'm turning 18, you see.
This place has no internet connection yet...
So, yeah, this means Short Factor is shutting down for a while...
I get to keep the computer, though offline, it is a working computer.
This means NASF 2 and all my projects will keep on going, as will I.
So it could be a couple months or more before I get my own internet connection.
Well, I might get a connection on rare occasions, so I will try to update then.
Regardless, I will keep working on my projects as much as I can.
One of my projects is an animation program called Sprite Land, a program MADE for sprite animation that beats the pants off most of Flash's features. NASF 2 is going to be remade in this program, and it will have real 3D background movement (goodbye linear gradient, we won't miss you).

In other news, I updated the SSBA Forum big time. It is now the official, full fledged Short Factor forums. It has detailed descriptions on the various projects in the works here at Short Factor, and you can sign up to be a member on the Short Factor development team! How cool is that huh? Not cool? Yeah... meh. Well anyway, it has some interesting info on upcoming projects and a few information leaks. Be sure to check it out if you're interested.


Seeing as I will be absent for a while, it will be hard to update the forum... so just hang out there for a while.

Farewell my good friends and fans, I will be back later this year or early next year with one kick ass sprite movie called Not Another Sprite Fight 2.

Posted by Short-Factor - July 21st, 2008

Well... I've given it a lot of thought and I decided to remake Not Another Sprite Fight 2 from scratch. It is no longer 20% done.
The Luigi scene from the last post is still intact, but I decided to completely remake and amp up the fight scenes. I just got out of a bad trend of poor animation, that has been bothering me for a while. Now I am revitalized and ready to kick some ass. I also decided I might as well show Newgrounds just what to expect from NASF 2.

NASF 2 First Scene Preview

This time I'm pulling out some of the stops and really putting my self into making this movie. One of my goals is to raise the bar for sprite animation and hope that sprite movies can be more accepted, as sprite movies have been getting poor reception around the nets lately, and the reasons are obvious.
I will make some hand drawn animation soon too, so don't think I only care about sprites. I have a deep appreciation for the arts.
Anyway, please, enjoy this preview, I put a good deal of effort into this new version.

Also, a brief FAQ about the NASF series:

Q. Will NASF 2 be nothing but Mario vs Sonic?
A. Absolutely not! The introduction of various video game characters was one of the core elements that made the first NASF. I would not ruin that formula.

Q. When will it be released?
A. No date yet but we may see it in a couple months... maybe less.

Q. So... who are the characters going to be?
A. Aside from the obvious Mario and Sonic (AND LUIGI *WINK WINK*), that would be top secret.

Q. Will you use my idea(s)?
A. 99.9% chance of no. Not only is this an outlet for my best ideas (plus a few my close friends have suggested, which are good), many people these days think a movie is only art when it has some gay emo anime storyline. I've gotten suggestions like that (some people actually started writing shitty storylines for NASF) and suggestions for things that have nothing to do with NASF, like crossing over Smash Bros or Naruto. Ha ha, yeah, fuck that.

Q. Are you still working on The Master Games/Sonic vs Shadow 3/<movie name>?????
A. YES. SHUT. UP. Thank you.

NASF 2 Estimated Completion:
*Project Sprite Land subject to change percentage; progress pending*
