The reason why it isn't in a flash (especially like this) is because still text is much easier to read. With the text always moving, this gets really hard to read, and makes it much easier to miss something. Now if you made buttons that went to different sections of the rules, then maybe it would be ok.
But in all honesty, the BBS rules are fine where they are. People just can't find something that is supposed to be quite obvious to find.
It's just fine -- personally, I sort of agree with you.
The problem is, well, I simply suck at Flash, and I'm on a thirty day trial. I spent the last few days of it making this, and I submitted what I had. :D
Thanks for the review!
Awesome preloader. Awesome sound effects. Oh, and the animation was pretty good too. I was sorta expecting a bunch of colors and other stupid stuff when he goes in space, but you just got lazy >:(
Good for a quick laugh though.
Intro needs to be way shorter
Ok, first of all you need to shorten your intros by a lot! I don't care that you were bored and made a flash, a lot of other people make flashes too. And sprite flashes at that.
And in my opinion, most of the jokes were not very funny, and nothing really stood out in my mind. I think you need to work on your scriptwriting, then start doing some more flash again. Oh, and the use of those sound effects were pretty weak (I mean, how many times did I hear the same generic scream in this?).
I think you need more work in setting up what you are going to have for a flash animation before you animate it. Hope that helps.
It's pretty cool...
It looks pretty cool, but it isn't going to top the NGAP Radio.
So is this supposed to have all the songs from the NGAP, or some songs you like, or viewers put their own songs or what?
If people need help with how to submit flash, it's beyond me how they even made the flash dude. AND there is a help page created that describes everything you would need to know. So help out people that don't know the help page exists, let them browse the navigation bar....
I swear I saw this before...
I know that I have seen this somewhere before, but I can't remember where, so my whistle remains dry and silent.
If you really did originally do this, then sorry, because it's a pretty nice blackjack game.
I have posted this on other various sites such as funnygames . biz, and other sites. Tis is my first time uploading here, I thought it would get blammed :|
Like the flow, not production.
I like the glitch effects and stuff you've used here, but I'm really not feeling that bass. I think you could process it a little more (or better), it has too much mid / high frequencies in it I think. That's the best way I can explain it, it just doesn't sound great to me. And maybe I'm being picky here, but I'm not a huge fan of the snare... it sounds kind of distorted to me (I'm listening on crappy laptop speakers though, so it's hard for me to give any solid opinion on anything).
But I really like the flow of it, I think you just have to work on producing your sounds more.
Thank you, I really appreciate your criticism.
And I agree, the sound production is my weakest link.
Drums need major work.
The drums need major work so far. One of the most important things that you need to get in there is a good snare drum. It sounds really empty without one. And the drums that you do have in there sound really drowned out by the reese. The hi-hat line thing you have is alright, but to me it just kinda sounds out of place or something. Overall the drums just sound way to weak to me. Because of the drums, the build up sounds really disappointing, I would expect some massive sounds after that. One technique that sometimes works after a build is a short, but not distraction, silence right after the build.
The synth work in this isn't too bad, compared to what I can usually do. But the reese just sounds kinda simple, but not too bad. Maybe a little plain sounding, but if you could something else to fill up some space with, it would seem better. Right now it just sounds plain and empty to me.
Hopefully this helps.
Ah, a criticizing mind. I like that. :)
Simply put, I agree. Everything about the drums is bad. The volume, the mastering, the actual samples themselves.. looking for some new samples and I'll make a new drum pattern then. I only uploaded this really to access it on another pc, so forgive the flawed quality. :p
Thanks for the review, I appreciate the tips!
Some quick tips about DnB.
Here's some quick and very brief things about drum 'n bass:
Do not use that bass that you have in there. All it is is a saw wave. You have to add on many more effects to make it sound really good. If you want a deep and subtle bass, try putting a lowpass filter on something that you have messed around with a bit, and if you don't get as an audible bass you want, you can add a really low sine wave (and only a sine wave, no effects needed) to get the sub-bass sound you might need. If you want to get some crazy reece's going, you can try looking around for tutorials and getting new VST's (like Hotelsinus Reese Bassline), but all you really need to do is practice putting something like two detuned saw waves and adding a bunch of effects over it.
As for the drums, you can probably get really good with putting drum loops together. It isn't the greatest here, but it's a really good start. Try throwing in some more variety; more patterns, drills, rolls, ect, just to throw together a more interesting song.
That's about all I can think of, keep practicing.
Finally someone actually reviews... I've got that reese VST but I can't get it to work in FL. I knew I hadn't any variations in the drums, I was thinking of that before I posted it, put then again I can always fix it because I save two separate files, flp and mp3, so I'm safe and I will continue to screw around.
