released at Scene Event 05
Hi and welcome to the first official prepared guideline .nfo instead of
a quick hack ('because we must have an .nfo, so you better type
it now before the deadline is there').
We're now a week before the deadline at SE2k5 and our demo
is really starting to get in shape now. We did most of the effects, the
timeline is almost filled right now, we just need to fill in one more
effect, and we need lots more tweaking and timing of the effects.
Right now we are experiencing some bugs, we're thinking because of some
The path we've walked before releasing this demo is quite tedious.
We started about one year ago, just before SE2K4 using the farbrausch
Werkkzeug tool. In the beginning it was a hard tool to master, but after
lots of experimenting, reading the tutorial, cursing, some more
experimenting, we feel like we've finally come to a part where we are
getting to know the werkkzeug tool quite well.

We resolved the bug in our k1-file, it was a load-opertaor which pointed
into nothingness. It was supposed to load a particle system, but I killed
that one, and now it was loading random data, and crashing werkzeug every
time we hit the 'make demo' button. I made a small 'loadbug.k1'-file that
I'm going to show the farbrausch people. Probably the fixed this issue in
their new version, but who knows. It costed us more the a hour to find out
what went wrong, searching through all fxs, timelines and textures.
We just removed the introfx from the demo, because it didn't seem fitting.
Now we only have to think of something for this fx and the final one, and
then all the placeholders are gone, and the tweaking&cleaning&optimizing

We're two days before the party now and things are really getting nice now.
We've removed and remade several effects, we created a new greet effect,
and also the new intro is ready now, the only thing it requires is some
better timing, and some better textures for the second part. We've never
been this far before any party at all. We also discussed what we should
focus on the most, and what's the highest priority now. We'll do some more
effects today, and then the great cleaning can begin, so this will be our
first nicely organized viewable k1 file (if you don't believe me you should
check out the other ones ;).
It's getting quite exciting now, I'm really looking forward to view it on
the bigscreen, and watch all the time and effort we've put in making this
coming to a nice end, and off course, competing in the competition will
.TheBat once more
Now we're just one night before the party. We filled in the last effect, and now al placeholders are replaced by some effect. We decided there are three more effects that need some focus, and after that, it's just tweaking, adding some more layers, and nice small design thingies, and then it will be complete. Off course a lot more work needs to be done, but i think there aren't many groups who finished their demos before they arrived at the party (tweaking included). So the upcoming party will require lots more tweaking, but i think we're at 85% right now, it's
