An announcement...

Hello everyone! If you're a regular visitor to The MAMB Team website you will already know this by now. However if you don't read it now:


Hello loyal fans and passers by! I would just like to announce the break up of The MAMB Team. I feel that I am not up to managing a group like this, (Be it a small one) I haven't seen Macy in 3 months, Sommer has resigned and Derk is ready to move on to other projects.

"what will happen to all your websites, projects and other things?" you may be asking. Do not worry about these since most of them are solely worked on by me (Insomnia? Yep! IJDTS? Yep! Ampranguliss? Yep! All the websites? Yep, yep and yep!)
And I have been working with a lot of people that aren't in the MAMB recently (One of the more notable of them being 'Puzzling999')
"But... What about all the MAMB Websites? They have to go right??!"
Well... Actually no. The majority of The MAMB websites will be transformed into websites for me (Like a portfolio and what not)
And this website? If I can learn enough HTML then hopefully I can remake this website from scratch using my own code!

This is my decision alone and not anyone else's so I take all the blame, and as a result I have not yet told any of the other members of this (Although I doubt they'd care)
It was quite a disillusion to be honest

I thank everyone else who is still in The Team who participated.
It has been a great opportunity to study human psychology and I hope one day I can create a more focused and creative group that actually do things and care for each-other

-Thanks for your time
zxin (Group leader)

What you just read was posted on The MAMB Team website a few minutes ago.
And so from now on this will be my blog and my blog alone.

AAANNIIIIMMMAAATTIIIIOOONNNN = 3=

Oh it's good stuff, oh you KNOW it's good! You just jelly! What? Oh I should explain! =P
So I've been animating out the B\/^^#0L3 recently and it's been because I am now renting the one and only (and the legendary) Fl! What? you don't know what that is?? oh, Fl is Flash... I'm a  F L A S H  A N I M A T O R now, ok?
But yeah so using Flash has been great, I like using a mix of Frame-by-Frame and Tweening.
For dem noobies:
Frame by Frame is drawing every frame of the animation of scratch
and
Tweening is where the image moves from frame a to frame b, there are 3 types of tweens:
1. Classic tweens, these tweens only move (and sometimes rotate and fade) and they will instantly change to the next frame when they are in the right place
2. Shape tweens, these tweens are most likely the best (even though they're a f***ing PAIN!) because they morph the image as it moves, although when they morph incorectly you can either put in shape hints to fix it or cry and give up and tell shape tweens to go f*** themselves because they deserve it.
And lastly:
3. Motion tweens, I feel like nobody really uses motion tweens because they're very odd -- the way they work is by default they don't move, you have to give them locations to go to and what not. They're very customize-able but also a bit too much work =\

So that's my INFORMATIONOVERLOAD.fla over and done with.


Post Script: Also that 'World's first REAL hoverboard' kickstarter I'm a backer of is about to end -- I hope it all goes well

For those who have no idea wtf it is:

Ampranguliss

So if you read all of my dear diary post then you'd know that Ampranguliss has been delayed! This is due to a lack of ideas and funding. It will still be made but at a delayed rate
But until I get enough money and ideas Ampranguliss is...
                            
  DELAYED

Microsoft Buys Mojang, What I Have To Say

Although I don't know much about this I do know Microsoft have bought Mojang for 2.5 billion dollars and at the same time C418 put out this miniature album:

It... Kinda feels like a goodbye

Not a particularly happy one either. It's name sounds like a relation to Notch's cancelled game '10 to the power of the C'
If Microsoft do anything bad with Minecraft they will hear though the arse about it so lets hope they don't. Not much else we can do!
Let's hope that at least they get the damn modding API soon

Dear Diary: Scrapped?

So Dear Diary has been scrapped! I used to scrap work a lot in the old days but similar to Ampranguliss using my new skills I will make a better version from scratch!
Work on the new version will start soon-ish and it may take until late 2015 to finish as I am busy with Ampranguliss and suff
Speaking of Ampranguliss... [DELAYED]

Pretty Picture You Say?

I stayed up pretty late last night working on this:
Which I must say is my best work yet, either way I'll explain what the picture is of now:
Anyway this is a picture of idolized Minecraft versions of (Left to right) Sommer, IdolIdolKitCat & zxir
I like the way it turned out, it didn't look great to begin with but then I did KitCat (Who looks best here, be honest ;)) and I got kinda exited for the final look of this picture! But yeah...
The MAMB Team Wiki is going ok
Anyway, seya!

Animations, Animations & MORE ANIMATIONS

The animated portion 'zxin Killed Them All' is finished, now all I have to do is edit in the sounds, make the music, paste it all together and upload it to YouTube.
I have now started to story board and make rigs for 'I Just Drift To Sleep' which won't be cannon to Minecraft SMP, The MAMB HQ and also Moncraft Series 1 and 2. This is in fact set in a parallel universe to the craftifa one with the same people with the same characteristics but have experienced a different set of events which means they may be a little different. In this parallel universe zxin has a sister, 'zxir' who is 18 and on her last day of school. zxin is 22 and although he suffers reverse insomnia; (meaning him always falling asleep) when his sister appears in one of his dreams and she isn't home. He goes to where the dream was set... Her screams ringing in his ears.

Nice idea, no? Also this is one of the fairly poorly drawn story boards I've made so I don't entirely forget what everything looks like:











And there you go! Stay tuned for more from me

Terraria, Support & Ampranguliss

Hey! As you know I like to support others so here is the sequel to Terraria's original soundtrack:

So as you may know I'm currently writing a movie that's going to be aprox. 60 minutes long and it's called 'Ampranguliss'. It is a remade, refurbished and re-imagined version of the original Ampranguliss which to be hummus with you (which wouldn't be nice O~O); kinda sucked. Don't believe me? Then watch it, it's pretty short:
And in fact that is the YouTube version which cut out a bunch of stuff from the ORIGINAL original Ampranguliss; which I still have on DVD.
Anyways I'm going to release a Kickstarter campaign for the remake soon so stay tuned for that! ^_^
Until then:
Thanks for reading

Dead?

Hey guys I've been sort of dead on the internet lately. But be sure I'm still here!
Dear diary progress? none
But I have done SOMETHING, wait for it... Wait for it... I'm writing a movie called "Ampranguliss Remake"; it's a remake of: "Ampranguliss 1 - A Normal Day For Us", Ampranguliss 2 - Dead Or A Deam?", "Ampranguliss 3 - Two Bloddy Hands" And "Ampranguliss 4 - A (Long) Love Story" Which I discontinued to write the script for Ampranguliss Remake. It will star me, Andrew (asp3703), Macy (KitCat), Meric (Who you haven't met yet) and some other people who we haven't casteded yet! (yaaay)
So that should be done by about the end of this year to the start of next year (AKA f#©%ing ages)
But that's it see-ya later peeps!

Thanks For Your Time

Trailer

Just linking you to the Dear Diary Trailer Video: Link!

Animating Dear Diary

Animating is a bitch, but I've (Somehow) got 70 frames and 5 Minutes (And 14 Seconds) of Dear Diary!
So that's about a third of it... DONE! maybe a quarter if I end up making it 20 minutes. Anyway's, I'm making a second trailer for it so expect that... Uhh... Soon... Ish?
Anyway, Dear Diary should be available to buy from around mid 2014 - early 2015, depending on how things go
Also I'm making 'In the sky' free, it should be going up on The MAMB Team YouTube Channel like right now, so check it out: Link!

Happy new year

I stayed up all night last night (not intentionally so I could wait for new year to come) but in the first few minutes of the new year I was watching this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVTwXcHYyJM
Honestly it wasn't a very good video too be watching to end off 2013, but I just needed something to entrain me while I tried to fix my bitchy Wacom Tablet drivers
