Announcements / Re: 2000 AD - The Ultimate Collection
« Last post by Tjm86 on Today at 08:58:06 am »
Is it just the early B&W stuff?  This was a problem with the mega collection as well.  The recent colour stuff was fine but some of the early strips were dire at times.  Blacked out blocks of images, loss of detail, not good at times.

Yeah, mid season break apparently. It should be back early next year. Nor free why they don't just call what we watched series one and the next series 2, since they appear to literally be going somewhere else...

Anyone else found that the quality has dipped significantly with this one? Not the stories, they’re as great as they ever were, but mine seems to be poorly reproduced - too white and scratchy on a lot of pages in the first story, too dark on some later pages. I get mine from my local comic shop who orders it in for me and I doubt that it’s bad enough to return it, but it is annoying. Enough to say that I wouldn’t have bought any more if the first had been like this.

Film & TV / Re: Marvel Superheroes hit Netflix

I binged it over the weekend. I largely enjoyed that. I can't  really compare it to the comics as I haven't read much,  but I think it worked at what it was. A bit predictable in places. Who didn't guess the pretty boy ex-comrade would turn out to be a bad un? The shere viciousness of his revenge on a certain character in the last episode was a bit... much for me though. Really, rather disturbing. I know it's supposed to be, but even so.

Games / Re: Rogue Trooper Redux
« Last post by GrudgeJohnDeed on Today at 01:49:23 am »
I really like it when games purposefully play with your sense of morality, Spec Ops is a good example JamesC. I never played World at War though, I'm not sure how it was executed there. I'm working on a little indie platformer at the moment which will have it's own moral conundrum near the end,  assuming I don't bottle it!

On topic, I played a bunch of Rogue Trooper Redux with a mate, it was great stuff. It takes a little bit to get going but once you're all powered up with your biochips and the real gameplay has shown itself, it's still as good as I remember.

We also booted up the PS2 version afterwards to compare, it's interesting. Theres something more cohesive about the art style of the original, its much more stylised and then in the Redux they've injected some realism, perhaps creating a clash. Redux still looks cool though, the extra resolution goes a long way for a kick off! Does anyone know if it does 4k on the Pro and the X? that would be cool.

Can someone illuminate me as to if there is a link for more news on this? I'd like to know what format these are being released and in how many volumes...and when. I have just over half of the Titan collection but would consider picking this collection up instead. I do enjoy those hardbacks, however.

Back, the post-Peep Show Mitchell and Webb series.

Weirdly never really got into Peep Show, but this is great.

The funniest bits are the sweariest or pay-offs so don't really translate to trailers.

Well worth a watch.

Creative Common / Re: Chris Blythe Flatting software?

I've found it's only helpful in certain circumstances. With really detailed linework, especially when it has crosshatching/texturing etc I tend to find that I spend more time fixing the flatting separations BPelt generates than I would just doing all the separations manually from scratch.

I imagine it’s the BPelt Photoshop plug-in. There are a lot of real colourists who swear by it, although when I flirted briefly with the idea of colouring professionally, I didn’t find it much help.

You’ll find everything you need here.

Creative Common / Chris Blythe Flatting software?
« Last post by james newell on 22 November, 2017, 07:33:17 pm »
I always have questions after the 2000ad thrill cast with creators

https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/2000adthrillcast/episodes/2017-11-14T21_00_00-08_00

Chris Blythe (colorist) said he uses flatting software to help with coloring, any know the name of the software he might be using?, or maybe his site that I might send a question?



thanks

james
