Re: New US Release w/ Japanese version

English subtitles.
That'll be enough to swing it for me. Hopefully, there'll be some other fringe incentives as well.

Between Enoki, Fabulous and Diskotek, we have had bad luck that none of them look disposed to doing a proper English restoration let along a hi-def release.

Re: New US Release w/ Japanese version

Interesting, I don't know what's stopping them doing a 1080p release though. The Terrahawks bluray was done off a 16mm master if I remember right and it looked fine, although not *quite* as sharp as some. So if they can find a 16mm or 35mm master, what's the hang up? I don't think I'll be buying thi...

Re: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I finally got the site backed up. It was quite a pantomime. The cPanel would create a backup of the home directory and settings and so on and it would let you download a 16GB tar.gz. When you opened the file, the actual size of the contents were about 100MB with just configuration data. The remainde...

Re: Going After Firestorm

I told myself that I would give it until New Year and see if Firestorm Vol 4 appeared on eBay. Sadly, it never did, so I ordered over Amazon marketplace, which was not my first choice.

I'll let you know when it gets here and I can finish my little project off.

Re: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

On the subject of keeping things safe, it's been quite a while since I took a local copy of the website. The archive is 16GB. It's not as big as I figured it might be but it wants 9 hours to download. While I was in the cpanel, generating the backup file, I took a look at the various hosting plans a...

Re: A couple of random finds

Interesting find,
Now, I warn you ahead of time, this is going to take some processing:

Re: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hi Andy, It's great to hear from you. I guess it was foreseeable that putting the forum on this server might lead to access issues from workplaces; more-so than if it had stayed put. Even so, it never really crossed my mind. It sounds very much as though you've had a very similar year to a lot peopl...

Re: RIP Mike Noble

That's real kind of you. It's always gonna be Andy's forum but it was certainly a worthwhile effort to convert the forum and bring it back when the old forum software couldn't carry us any further. It doesn't seem like nearly 4 years ago that we did that. Anyway, the forum and X-Bomber game site wil...

Re: RIP Mike Noble

That was the answer I was expecting.
In Look-In, you could see that the images were all shaded; either with pen or pencil.

Yet in the DVD booklet, the colouration is more like they were inked or painted over afterwards.
I do plan on scanning that in so that we have both versions on the website.

Re: RIP Mike Noble

Good to see you! Wish it had been better news, Those Star Fleet comic strips from Look-In really looked to have been done by someone that watched a good deal of the show and got what it was about. One thing I don't get about those comics is how they did a colourized version in the booklet that came ...
