This has to be one of the... creepiest boss battles i've seen.

General Discussion / Does anyone remember....

....when I (half-jokingly) said the Jr. emulator should ship with Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up"? Well, it seems that someone took that to heart.

Wow. Just... wow. I don't think I can look at a 4000 Emulator video the same way ever again.

Local Forecast / Warning Tone Frequency

I have determined that the warning tone is an approx. 585Hz Sawtooth tone that is roughly half a second long.

I had promised to do something like this a while back but never got around to doing it, until now. And no, this isn't a spambot thing.

TWC Fan Art / engineer's attempts at Artwork
« on: May 19, 2008, 02:14:17 AM »
While my specialty is texturing things like firearms and other items for video games, I decided to apply some of my limited Photoshop experience to making a "dream STAR"- that is, a STAR unit that incorporates factors from different STAR units that I find to be visually pleasing. Heck, you'll probably find a little bit from all of the STAR's here when i'm finished.

Having said that, this is an attempt at a night time LF w/ appropriate background. The rain icon is a fusion of the XL and current IntelliStar icons, and the LDL is a recreation of the current one as seen on Satellite and current IS units. As you can see, it is nowhere near complete. You'll see it evolve and take on a much more "complete" feel as time goes on.

As the image is large, I had to link it so it would not be a problem on smaller screens (I run 1280x1024)


Current plans on this image are to flesh it out and make tewaks as needed. Might add a visible moon that shows the current phase, but I don't know.

Update 1: Added "Current Conditions" header with 4000-esque gradient, tweaked text/image "windows".

Update 3: Edited time, completed LDL, added location, added the little circle thing to the temperature. It begins to resemble an actual CC frame.



I don't know why, but the bumper music ALMOST sounds like the "Everyone has AIDS" song from Team America: World Police. Don't ask why I decided to post this, I guess having 4 hours of sleep makes anything at least marginally funny.
