Heh, RealLife(tm) got in the way today, but I have some of it done and will probably work on it more tonight.

It's not as spectacular as the video-captured 3D stuff, it's just a variation on the original tux animation. But if I can pull it off, it should be a lot of fun.

Not sure if I can pull it off, though I will certainly try...

Ok - try not to laugh out loud, but her's my first attempt for all the retro arcade types out there (are those that crickets I here?) Thanks to Mike for making a program that even a graphically delcined person like myself can use!

maybe if you can get the empeg clearer is about the only thing I would change

I only suggested that because you said you wanted to make it better and I like it

K, i'll try and make a clearer one this week. I can provide the raw frames if anyone wants to do something else with the spinnin' empeg.

Ok, I got animated logo support on the logo site now, simply use the animated upload option on the members screen. Ignore the big red text for now. It uses a java applet from mschrag to view them, click on it once to begin the animation, and once again to stop it.

Tomorrow I'll finish up the code so I can approve them, and figure out a way to display them on the Riocar.org site.

Oh, and consider this feature beta. If something breaks, let me know, and I'll look into the code tomorrow.

I don't think they are up there yet... but people can start uploading them now. Once Drakino gets a system in place to approve them (he is usually lightning fast on these things) the rest of us can browse them.

Hey Butter, that's cool, but I think it has to be matched to the color depth of the empeg... ie, there is no blue. I noticed that some of the bootlogos have color too..

Right here.

This is a first draft. Note that it must be viewed with the opening bars of the live version of Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock and Roll" going through your head.

OFF TOPIC: Can we edit the contact support Tux so that he is lying on the ground with a bottle of booze?

Heh, good, you got the joke right away. I was afraid no one would get it.

I actually popped in the DVD to research it, but there weren't enough pixels to do the candlestick or to get the subtleties of the moves, so it's kind of a generic version of the slide-on.

I could have done more stuff, but my goal was to make it match the original animation exactly in terms of frame count (27). The custom logo doesn't show up for as long if the frame count is too long.

Thanks man. Once I get the hang of this animation stuff I'll try something a little more creative.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing...

Not to disparage all of the fine work that has been done on Logos, but with the animation editor they are beginning to look oh so 20th century these days.

And a Logo can still be appended to the animation for as long as one wants, by just making it the final frame, and optionally repeating it (4 bytes per, 14 frames/second) for as long as one wants it to hang around.

Cheers

Well, I have this specific thing I do with the custom logo, which is why the custom logo screen time is important to me.

What I do, is I take the image from the boot animation, the last frame with Tux in his final position. Then I erase the Empeg logo and put my name and work phone number in place of the empeg logo. That's my custom logo: The contact info in case the player is lost or recovered from a theft. And Tux standing there, still, next to my contact info.

You're right, I could incorporate that into the animation if I wanted. But I like the idea of having the logo and the animation be two separate things, with the animation being the "official" part of it, and the logo being the "personal" part of it.

Aw, thanks, guys. I'm glad you like it.

Is the word "Hijack" absolutely necessary? I'd think that the presence of the nonstandard animation would be enough to clue you in on the presence of Hijack.

Also, during all of this discussion, and all of this new animation software, no mention has been made of what happens in the case of a player that's been set to the "Rio" personality?

OK OK ... Hijack = not necessary ... My personal opinion = Rio is dead to me . It will always be the Empeg to me.

My vote is for this one. Closer to the original and keeping the empeg spirit. I think this should be the default one. Shame you can't put some white briefs on him like Tom Cruise wore but they wouldn't show up in the front too well, just in the butt shot Oh, he should have socks on too!
