SHADOWLANDS 3 OUT NOW!
Surprise! It's finally HERE!
Again, I'm hosting the third episode of Ilsoap's Shadowlands series to avoid the bandwidth problems that Angelfire has. So, here it is. Happy Birthday, Ilsoap! :birthday

SHADOWLANDS: Episode 3: **** **** ***** Starring the Dopefish!

Please don't ruin the surprises for other people, so don't post any spoilers here until... say, next week? ;)

Nice work again, 'Soapy. Your Shadowlands series once again proves to be most sensational, inspirational, etc...

Can't wait until Episode 4! I must say, I was suprised to see it up earlier than I expected.

And Keenrush, I'm not sure if this will help your problem or not, but I have set up a mirror on my site. You can reach it here:

Signs?
I think I missed the reference to the movie "Signs", where was that bit?

Wow, that was pretty quick, eh Ilsoap? At this rate, you should have episode 4 out before Christmas! I can't wait!
:christmas :evil :b

Oh and I've spotted a plot inconsistency: the arachnut was wrong, it wasn't his joke at all, it was the OTHER arachnut's joke! :oops

Anyone else notice the scuba gear? ;)

Again, there was another Animaniacs reference, but perhaps too subtle to be intentional(?). "That's 'YOUR MAJESTY', slave!" reminds me of Yakko's "It'll be YOUR highness if you keep calling me that!" :lindsey

re: signs
na'ah... the Signs reference i thought i caught was when King Lick was going on about being crazy "i'm a crazy... slug... yeah..." that was like in the movie Signs when the dad has to run around the side of the house while yelling about how crazy he is. sounded similar to me, anyway :-$

Signs was a pretty lousy movie in my opinion anyway, so i don't blame you if the King Lick thing wasn't on purpose :-)

either way, TMST, you're pretty good at imitating the existing voices... were they all you??

Anyone notice similarities between King Lick's tale and a certain mad Shakespearean King tragedy?

a tale of two kings
King Lear? same first letter, same number of letters...
I thought he sounded like Crazy Smurf, from "Smurfs Uncut," a short film my friend made a few years ago.

As far as the message at the end, Does anyone remember the orignal temple of the slug?

v SPOILERS! v
I suppose we can have spoilers on page 2 (etc) of this topic.

:( Well. The ending made somebody cry? Thanks, Cybernetic! You're the best audience member ever! I'm sure you had a good laugh when you saw the ending credits though!
Hopefully Ilsoap won't be as cruel as me in his next Shadowlands episode. ;)

Extra Goodies:

:yorp The ferris wheel at the end was a photo of Caroline Bay, Timaru (my childhood town for 10 years).

:yorp The "secret escape tunnel" could be the secret passage out of Border Village in Keen 4, which contains extra-life bottles, effectively making that place an... Immortality Shrine!

:yorp The shooting star at the end goes BEHIND planet Gnosticus IV. This is impossible, because shooting stars are seen when a meteoroid enters a planet's atmosphere and burns up. For the shooting star to go behind the planet, the planet must've been inside the atmosphere of "the camera". But I'm sure the Trekkies got that one... 8)

:yorp Moral: Nukes are bad! If you see a nuke, leave it alone. Leave destroying the world to those who are qualified to do so (i.e. politicians).

Re: v SPOILERS! v
Just so y'all know, I was just as surprised when I saw this on the 21st as you guys were. I got an e-mail about it that morning, clicked on the link, and laughed my head off. TMST spoofed the series really well (and yes, the voices were great, especially Duke).

A couple of other notes:

- the Dopefish was actually drawn by me. When TMST made Dopefission, he called out for people to find new images of the Dopefish (among other things) so I sent him that drawing. Quite kind of him to use it there :)

- the voice that TMST used for the Mimrock was the exact type of voice I was planning on using for him when he actually had a speaking part. How's that for a coincidence? (Hey, Sluggy, if you want that voice part in the real Ep 3, you got it.)

Re: SHADOWLANDS 3 OUT NOW!
Yeah, TMST might win it with this little faux Ep 3. But I'll assure you guys that it's not the REAL episode 3.

By the way, that music at the end - minus the piano - was a real song from 1975 by Dr. Demento called "They're Coming To Take Me Away". I've heard the entire song on vinyl record... it's pretty funny. The original song can be found at www.funnybody.com/takemeaway.mp3 (and probably a lot of other places too, that's just the first one I could find).

re: music
i think KeenCommander meant the ballad-style piano piece when it was showing the memories of King Lick. the slow Slug Village rebuild. it was very artsy and even had some juicy chords in it--TMST is quite the musician!! *wishes he could see the MIDI of it*

Music
Alright, I'll upload some MP3s of the music when somebody can give me a link to the files that I need to download to save WAV files as MP3 instead. At the moment the files are only in WAV format, which makes them ridiculously huge files.

As for the Funny Farm music, I thought I would use that for King Lick's madness scene, but when I realised that it had no "music" -as such- apart from a drum beat, I took the opportunity to pull out the keyboard and play some Keen tunes along with it.
So... no MIDI files, sorry. It was all "recorded live", as it were. :)

Also, the music used when Duke Mushroom and Colonel(?) Mimrock were escaping was the classic "Great Escape" movie theme music.

Did you spot the origins of the opening music?
It was basically the chords from the "pyramids" music in Keen IV (which is entirely chords anyway), combined with the ominous 5/4 beat of "Mars, the Bringer of War" which was also used as the music for the last level of Keen V (the QED). Ten points if you got that.

So... send me links to MP3 conversion files please! Prefereably a plug-in for Cool Edit. (I've never been able to find anything satisfactory, except for one program that just expired on me recently.)

Re: MUSIC!
The Incidental Music and Funnylands don't seem to work quite right, and I'm not exactly nuts about the quality...

If you had some way to send me the .wavs, I'd be willing to encode them myself, and probably link the "sad" files into one complete set.

Midi files and such
Perhaps it was recorded live, but if you could send me the chord sheet or any other musical short hand type stuff you have for it, I'd be willing to figure out what I can by ear to make a midi.

Ditto with the Coming to Take Me Away piano overlay as well: that was brill!

Midi again
I'm trying to figure out the sad music, which is actual very simple (thank god for the key of C!) But I was wondering if you are playing one or two notes at the beginning: the sound quality is playing havoc with my ear!

Sixths!
Ah sixths! i was thinking thirds, so I wasn't far off, just had the order wrong! That's what you get using a guitar to figure these things out. Guitar's a lot more portable (as I'm not living at home right now) but it sounds different and such.

TMST, I've got the first two parts and the second half of the first part in midi form, but having trouble as I don't have a piano to work it out on here. Do you have any chord sheets or anything you can me? I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
Amethyst

Re: Sixths!
thank you so much tcl! i've wanted a flash 6 player for ages!
thanks again!

also, my helmet goes off to tmst, i'm surprised that he managed to make a spoof so quickly (about 4-5 months),
if only ilsoap was that quick as well (quality-quantity-quality-quantity :crazy I can't decide!)

but as long as TMST can make some cool alternatives, it's all good! :)

Re: Sixths!
TMST, what about putting them in Ogg Vorbis format? Sounds better than Mp3 or Wma in a smaller file size. Vorbis.com is the place for it. It's not proprietary like the other popular codecs either. Audacity (audacity.sourceforge.net) would be a nice way to encode to ogg. It's a freeware multitracked audio editor. Winamp and probably windows media player can play ogg, so compatability probably isn't much of an issue.

Oggy...
Ahhh, good ol' underappreciated Ogg Vorbis..

Okay people, I'm uploading all the WAVs to a temporary directory. They'll be gone in one week (well, okay, maybe "when I get around to deleting them").

http://www.thisstrife.com/sluggy/big/funnylandz.wav (6.7MB!!!)

http://www.thisstrife.com/sluggy/big/howsad-4.mp3 (1.4MB)

The other tunes are simple enough for you musically inclined types to work out how to notate them, obviously. Just remember - major 6ths. And then a minor iv chord instead of major for the repeat, just to make it more soppy.
:p

I hadn't noticed before...
...that your piano accompaniment to this piece was based on Eat Your Veggies and the Slug Village tune, and the Chasm of Chills music, and then the Keen 5 'game over' music at the end -- fantastic work! I think TMST must stand for Too Much Spare Talent... :b

Hey, is there any possibility you might have a version of funnylands without the Dr. Demento? The piano part is just brilliant!

Re: SHADOWLANDS 3 OUT NOW!
One question for Ilsoap,

will you STILL be doing episode 3 in flash 5 or are you going to move on? I'd still prefer flash 5, smoother animation IMO, well at least it's that way for my computer.

what's the progress of your animations...
Drip 2
Shadowlands 3 (including trailer)
The Big Cheese

i'm a frequent visitor of your site but not much seems to change :D

Re: SHADOWLANDS 3 OUT NOW!
Drip 2 is the one I want to finish before starting on Ep 3 of Shadowlands (which I still want to do). In Drips 2, the tall drip - his name's Nasal - develops the hiccups, so the other two look in a medical dictionary to try to cure him.

As for the Big Cheese... that thing pretty much bombed. We weren't very organized while we were making it, and it turned out to be too much work that we were willing to do to go back and finish it. Some of the animation was finished though... I'll conclude the Big Cheese series by showing the animation that was completed.

And for the record, I update once every week! OK, that's not a LOT, but I'm working at doing more. (Thanks for visiting, by the way.)

GOOD GOD! NO!

I guess Shadowlands Episode 3 may be running a bit late next year. :(

Re: SHADOWLANDS 3 OUT NOW!
what's wrong with that? I personally enjoy all of Ilsoap's creations (especially the box one :lol ), and will be satisfied to see anything made by him. Besides, you don't want it to be rushed, do you?

Re: tempting...
I don't think he made those... I think he was showcasing those for someone else. (I also would disagree about the humor content... but that's just my opinion.)

Serial Killer?
Oh yeah, those "Kaotik Dude" animations were NOT mine. I take NO responsibility WHATsoever for them, or the actions that they may be blamed for encouraging with today's youth.

My Flashes can mostly be found here:

My latest one is this:

How To Break An Amp
Bahaha. I kind of accidentally turned Take Me Away into the unofficial JimSoft anthem over the past few weeks... and on the weekend we sort of blew up an amp as four of us drunkenly sang into one mic at full volume to it (completely out of tune, wrong lyrics and everything).:crazy Got it all on video as well. One day it may show up at the Insanitarium.

Thanks for making this possible, TMST and all who posted links to the song!:b (I forget which link I used now).

Hmm...8)

Re: re:
i think it might be delayed.

i mean, the second episode trailer was released about a year ago. and now, it hasn't even been released yet.

maybe ilsoap's gonna be using the same animation from previous episodes. :D
