Star Fleet Saturday 2-17 2021.02.25

You might've noticed that Star Fleet Saturday hasn't been so regular, lately.
This is not an indication of a lack of interest in the site on my part; more that things've been a little difficult of late.

What I might move towards is either just releasing updates when they're ready, or an alternating thing, where I do an update on the game one week and something about Star Fleet the week after and so-on.

In any case, I have a small mountain of scanning material to work through for Star Fleet, so I made a start on the 2005 Special Effects Hero BEST Magazine VOL.5, which you can find here:

Star Fleet Saturday 2-16 2021.02.05

I did not have to look far for this week's Star Fleet Saturday.
Brad has been very busy reworking his X-Bomber 3D model and started work on the Dai-X as well.

Take a closer look on the SFXB Forum

Combined Update 2021.01.31



Migration Away from Facebook
I've been busy migrating all the content that I put on facebook onto the website.
This has taken me about a fortnight but the process is now finished.

The website's hosting has also just been renewed for another 3 years (and 6 months for free).

Doctoku's AI Upscaling Project
On the SFXB Forum, user Doctoku has created a 720p AI-upscaled version of the first episode of the original X Bomber Japanese version of Star Fleet:

SFXB Forum Issues
At the same time, I learned that newly-registered users on the SFXB Forum were having problems accessing the forum.
This problem in the forum's database has been fixed with a bit of SQL trickery, but it means that we had trouble with spam users who registered over the past months who were then able to disrupt the forum with spam messages as well.

I've pruned all spam users from the forum, along with any of their messages.
I've also tightened up the registration requirements and added a number of spam mail domains to the blocklist.

Lastly, after a recent upgrade, there were problems with the 'breadcrumb' navigation. That's now been fixed.

Fan Artwork
I added a much cleaner and better version of Japanese artist Shiina's Star Fleet illustration to the Fan Artworks section of the site.

The other week, I found this nicely-styled illustration by Ryuhi Misaki on twitter.
