I'm not dead (ATHF Live was beyond awesome)

Posted by Short-Factor - April 22nd, 2010

No, I'm not dead, but stuck as always. I hate being a total flake with these projects, which I kinda am now, torn between different tasks. I'll write a task list here to show what I'm dealing with, what needs to be done, why things aren't progressing, whatever:

Task list and their lousy excuses:

NASF 2. TRIPLE Update: I'm getting bad feedback about moving this to 3D, and rethinking the whole thing, I'd probably be better off keeping this project sprite oriented. I will have to do endless custom sprites now. Argh. At least most of the prep work is done and hibernating.

MM Wins the Internet. Update: Its almost done. Only a couple short scenes left to finish. Should be done within a month.

Jerdanman 2. In progress so shush.

Mr Lange vs Suave Scientist. I've got the hardware now, but I'm going to chew my food first before taking another bite, you know what I mean.

Sonic vs Shadow 3. For the people with no life who've been waiting since 2005, don't hold your breath. This project may not even come to fruition because of my severe lack of interest and heavy queue of other work to be done.

The Master Games. Yeah, this, one of two things will happen with this disaster. I'm either remaking it into something very different or scrapping it all together. Ep 1 was made in a short amount of time while I was drunk from lack of sleep and weird ideas were swarming in my head. I wrote an awesome script for it later on though and don't want to just throw it all out yet. I'm still figuring this all out so don't expect anything with this soon.

Smash Bros Arena. This one I hate myself for because I'd love to make it but I'm not a very skilled programmer and have virtually no support with it, but I have enough talent to make it into an amazing game with some help. I don't know where to go with it yet because I'd like to make it without Game Maker or Flash, possibly in C, which I'm learning.

Power of 3 project. Doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out why this isn't released. Despite the deadline being ancient history, we really did start a project, but limited internet was a big obstacle. We decided to steer it into our own team project, but if its ever finished remains to be seen.

Spriteland. For anyone who remembers, forget this. I made some decent progress but memory issues and my limited programming skills killed this project. I'll be relying on other software.

I've got other miscellaneous ideas, and I always make weird things from artwork to short animation clips, some of which I release on youtube. Really the best thing that will make these projects less talk and more walk is getting a little help.
In the meantime, enjoy my awesome new profile picture and watch out for any neat stuff I can finish along the way. Thanks for the concerned/interested folks who took the time to read all this. I have a habit of tl:drs.

Update: Just got back from Portland, and saw Dave Willis and Dana Snyder performing their ATHF Live show. It was fucking great.

Why aren't you on MSN

Not at college today, may not be back until next week. I'm using a different comp right now.

Oh i see. I got your 20 bucks.

Hooray. I'll check in with you next time I'm online.

Damn, that means i miss the shot

=( I was hoping to see a sonic vs shadow 3... I loved the second one... well too bad :'(

Sup Shorteh. You should come back to the forums more often.

I too have a bad habit of starting new animations on impulse, but I don't work on em much thanks to uni. Lookin forward to MM wins the Internet.

BTW, what was the name of the animation where Luigi rips off the head of a toad behind a bush in the castle? I don't see it mentioned in here.

That was just a short thing, no full animation was really planned. I thought about it though.

im glad to see you are still around!

you might not believe this but I actually think about our game a lot. It just feels like something that NEEDS to be done.

In my programming class, the final project is to make a small game in XNA. I will use my sprites for that game and run it as some sort of beta. dont worry they wont see life out of my computer!

I really want to get back in touch with ya and doomsday-one soon

Agreed, and damn you for getting into XNA first. But yeah it'd be fun to work on that game and see what becomes of it.

holy fuckin shit

Hey dude still livin' up to that user name I see.

Sup shorts! Lookin forward to you being at the Lab more often!

Yayayyayayaayyayaya Langeee. :3

Sexy as hell

Rofl shitty camera

Man that is a lot of projects. My advice though is insted of working on them all at the same time just select one and role with that. It also dosnt hurt when you get a idea to work on that flash and then go back to your main one.

a few weeks ago I checked to see the status on NASF , it said 3%

Now I check again, and it says 3%

What's going on?

Delay until I've set up my new computer, which should be within the week.

Still Can't wait for NASF2! Please pm me when it comes out! I know you wont disappoint! Just make sure it's ready the way you see fit!

I'm sure you'll notice when it comes out.

Need a coder?

Hell yes.

Still waiting on that 4%...

Shush you.


I'm a internet friend/follower of Short Factor and would like to clear up why it is he isn't active. Shorts Factory here does not have internet, so much so that his site, the laboratory of apathy, has not been renewed. He has many friends in the real world and makes his announcements through them, but through his site. He is all right but most of his projects will be put on hold.

Thanks sjs but most people keeping up with me already know that... especially that part about me having lots of friends in the real world... yep... lots of friends... I sure have them... real world...

Make a sequel to the master games. It could really be a good animation with the suggestion i placed in the form of a comment on the User Reviews section of Master Games episode one.

make mor sprite tv

when i feel like it GOSH
