Sounds interesting! I'll practice with drawing my TF's (Which I'll admit needs a lot of work) and I'll see what I can do for you.

Sounds good! Smiley

So far the only two Transformers I'm really good at drawing at so far is Prowl and Jazz.  And you need any G1 fanfics I have tons either on ff.net or TransFictions.net.

I'll have to check those out sometime.  Thank you! Smiley  Could I please see some of your art sometime?

I'd be interested in this as this is actually what I know more about anyhow.

OK, cool.  I actually had written one virtual ep for this years ago, and while I lost it, I still remember most of what happened.  We don't have a site or anything for this yet, but my idea was to create a Virtual Transformers site somewhere, perhaps on tfcog.net, that has all the different sub-catagories, with this and the rest.  May need some help getting this going.

Just wondering, when you say "Continuation" do you mean we'll get that Leige Maximo story that Simon Furman hinted at so long ago or will it be an all new storyline?

As far as any adaptation is concerned, I reckon a regular radio drama which modernises the narrative from the 80's to the current day would be nice (Theres enough material there to work from) but how would you do it?

What I was thinking of was actual fan-comic continuations online, G1 issue #'s 81+ and G2 issue #'s 13+.  The UK comic maybe also continued as it was from where it stopped.  They'd also have to be sounding like they were written then, I suppose, and feature the remaining toy-characsters that needed introing/development.  If Simon Furman's "Alignment" story still fits with it needs to be decided on staff.

Well, I could always stretch my writing muscles in the Transformer realm again. I'll admit, I found the idea interesting, but when I saw that the idea had be "around" for several years, with no real "results," I figured it was an abandoned project.

I have been trying to kick-start this project for awhile now, but have recently become part of tfcog, and finally worked out a submissions guideline, things are starting to come together.  I should have the info for the new webmaster, cyber_megatron, by next month or the month after, as I'm not at my apartment at the moment, where all those files are for the site.  I also need tutor-ing help scripting the first 2 virutal eps.

If you could give me a general idea of what sort of stories have already been "accepted," it would be appreciated. I'd hate, for example, to write an origin story for Sixshot, and have it rejected as someone already attempted it.

Well, we can't really reveal what our stories are going to be yet, so just write what comes to mind.  3 pages an summaries isn't that much, really.  Just do your idea for submissions.  When you join the group then, we'll  tell you what's availalbe, and you can do what you want from that.  Does that help?  Please LMK if you need more help.

To get a sample of my Transformer writing, you can check out the TF movie fanfic "Chronicles of Brawn" here: http://safari.tripod.com/chronb.html .

I'll read it, thanks!

My more general, scifi writing can be found here: http://www.valdosta.edu/~ntbradley/creative.htm *note* The updated firefox seems to make the text invisible on the page, but you can view it by highlighting it.

I'll check that too.  Thank you again! Smiley
170  Partner Websites / Virtual Transformers / Help Wanted: "G1 Transformers cartoon: Virtual Season 4 Extension Project" on: July 13, 2008, 01:11:10 AM
Greetings.  Some of you may know me, others perhaps not.  My handle is "Rodimus_2316," and I'm working on starting a series of virtual Transformer story-continuations, continuing official stories to their proper end, including getting in the last number of toy-characters that never made it in them.  The first major project I'm focusing on right now is a continuation of the U.S. G1 cartoon, continuing season 4 from the Rebirth trilogy episodes, meaning an extension of that same season, but with fanfic virtual-episodes.
 
The process works like this: It's 1987, and Hasbro has stopped production on the U.S. G1 toon, and the last writers are gone.  Japan has already decided to ignore the Rebirth episodes, and do their own shows (Headmasters, etc.).  However, instead of keeping the U.S. show cancelled, this time they hire new cartoon-makers (us, fictional ones) to continue the show, to promote the toy-characters of that time (1987).  They had Optimus Prime revived previously, but realized that wasn't going to be enough to keep viewer-interest, realizing that omitting old/previous characters angered U.S. viewers, so they now let the new writers use old characters to a limited extent, if they so wish.  What we'll *actually* do is write fanfics that play out like actual G1 eps written at-the-time (any writing-format is fine, as long as it's ep-ish), with artists reading them and drawing "screen-captures" that will fit around the fanfic-eps when posted.  This is all to be posted on our site in the Episode Guide section.  The actual season intros and outros will also be posted there, along with the fan-made ones (I've already made a Virtual Season 4 intro, but have yet to post it).  There are bonus sections, such as a Character Guide, which'll have profile-cel art and descriptions of the virtual season 4 cast; a Submissions section talking about how to join, and more. 
 
We have a few people still confirmed on staff, but we are still in dire need of help.  Here is a list of what we need, what the job entails, and how to join and do it:

Writers:
Job #1: As said, we need writers to write fanfic virual-episodes, in any format they want (script, prose, whatever).  If you want to write in true G1 script form, there are a few examples at this site to work off of: www.bigbot.com/info.  If you need any help, myself and Twincast2 (the two story-editors) can assist you in whatever you need.  Lists of all the 1987/virtual-season-4 TF toy cast:

http://tfarchive.com/toys/catalogues/generationone_catalogue/87a_catalog.jpg
http://tfarchive.com/toys/catalogues/generationone_catalogue/87d_catalog.jpg
http://www.virtualtransformerstv.thetfcog.com/mailorder.html

Again, there's the option of using old characters (meaning U.S. G1 characters from 1984-1986 that weren't also released in 1987), but try not to do it too much.  Just think, if you were actually writing the show back-in-the-day, how far do you think you could go (based on what you already saw of all the real eps concerning original characters also)?

Job #2: The 1987/VS4 cast profiles, in the Character Guide page, need to be written.  I'm working on it, but need some assistance from those interested.  I'm taking bits from the techspecs mostly, and adding stuff that only apply to the toon-versions.

Submissions:
Type up 3 pages of a story you have in mind, regular 10-12 pt size font (no cheating!), then a detailed summary of the rest, followed by detailed summaries of all other episodes you can think of.  This'll confirm to us that someone really wants to write with us.


Artists:
Job #1: Each fanfic-episode needs artists to read them, and draw around 10-15 images representing "screen-captures."  The art needs to at least somewhat look like G1 toon art.

Job #2: On the Episode Guide page, each new Virtual Season needs it's own representation pic.  There's the official ones for both seasons 1&2 and 3, as you can already see on the site (and the poster for TFTM).  One is needed for virtual season 4.  A separate one, just for season 2 itself, may be needed.

Job #3: On the Chracter Guide page, there'll be animation cels that resemble profile-worthy art.  Now, I've found 2 sites in the past that had official G1 "profile-cels" (one of them no longer up, but the other you can find here: http://www.toyarchive.com/Transformers/Cels/ACels1.html), but it doesn't cover all of the 1987 cast.  However, IDW but out a b&w book called "The Ark" (Vol. 1) a year or more ago, which has "proflie-cels" of about all the G1 TFs from 1984-1987, and I'll be scanning and posting them to fill in the rest.  Someone will be needed to color-ize these, as well as possibly touch-up on the tan-ish background parts from the online ones. 

Submissions:
Show us some of your work, either by drawing some pic or pics related to our project, and a site you have that has your art on it, or something like that.  Art needs to at least somewhat resemble G1 toon art, except for the "season-representation" pics from the Episode Guide page, as they look different.  In the end, it probably doesn't matter how their art looks, as long as it's decent-looking. 


Promo-Video Makers:
Job #1: When a definate release date is decided on for the release of the first episode (and VS4 opening sequence), 1-3 promo-videos would be nice to promote that eventual start.  I have some scripts in mind, and I'm willing to hear others as well. 

Job #2: The VS4 opening sequence I mentioned: I'd like to add a credits-thing at the end, saying I made it, and showing the URL to our site.  This would be put on youtube.com to help attract more attention.

Submissions: As with Artists, show us past video-work from somewhere, and we'll work out what to do.


Webmaster:
First assignment: Transfer all files from the old site (http://www.logopolis.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/virtual-transformers-tv/) to the new one (http://www.virtualtransformerstv.thetfcog.com).
Second assignment: Add more essentials to the site, such as the real-show intros/outros, the season-rep pics, profiles, profile-pics, FAQ, Submissions Guidelines, etc., everything for before the project starts.
Third assignment: Add VS4 intro, and virtual eps with "screen-caps" when it's time, and then watch over site continuously.

Submissions: Past and/or current experience in webmastering, or at least proven knowledge of good web site coding.


We've already got one artist, Optimus8404, who's agreed to do the VS4 representation pic, and some "screen-grabs" when the eps start.  Not sure if he'll do the profile-cel coloring work.  And cyber_megatron has contacted me about the webmaster position, and a few others.

I also have a "(Sunbow) G.I. Joe: Virtual Season 3" project I'm trying to start.  I've found a Joe-fan who has good VS3 layout ideas, and hope others may want to join and contribute as well.  We need a website started, first of all.

For more info on Virtual Television in general, please check this major Virtual TV "station": Phoenix Virtual Television (www.pvtonline.tv).  Their FAQ section should answer a lot, and there are other virtual TV shows still linked to it, last time I checked.  I'm trying to get back in touch with them, to get G1 back on their list, but so far, no luck. Sad

Thoughts?  Questions?  Suggestions?

I know, I just assumed they would've put up a list of at least some of the season 3 eps already on tv.com.  Of course, they may not know yet either.  I guess I could TRY to wait...  Sad
172  General Discussion / Transformers Discussion / Re: Is the Transformers Animated show over? [SPOILERS] on: July 08, 2008, 12:49:47 AM
So they didn't cancel it.  Cool.  I really want to see Blurr return; hope he's ok.  That was a suprise, but not too much of one, that Sari was a robot.  Any idea when season 2 will start, exactly?
173  General Discussion / Transformers Discussion / Is the Transformers Animated show over? on: July 08, 2008, 12:24:21 AM
I watched the last 2 episodes shown last weekend, and occording to tv.com, they're the last two of the series.  Is that it?  What's next?
174  TFCog Productions / Beast Wars Second FDP / Re: Questions and Thoughts on BW 2nd fan-dubs eps 1-4 on: July 07, 2008, 09:33:56 PM
I just recalled another couple questions:

1) So are the music/sound-effects you use the same from the original Japanese version?  If so, how do you just remove the Japanese voices from that, and replace them with the English ones?

2) The Maximal computer said that the planet's atmosphere was hazardous towards TFs, thus the beast-modes.  How do the alternate modes of the Predacons prevent the same thing?

I'd also like to help make these things.  I'll PM Taggenaggers about it.
175  TFCog Productions / Beast Wars Second FDP / Re: Questions and Thoughts on BW 2nd fan-dubs eps 1-4 on: July 07, 2008, 04:03:08 AM
No idea how far along ep #5, or any others possibly being worked on now, are? 

Thanks for the help, Hikuro and Brandon.
176  TFCog Productions / Beast Wars Second FDP / Questions and Thoughts on BW 2nd fan-dubs eps 1-4 on: July 07, 2008, 02:07:03 AM
I'm really enjoying this series.  The stories are good, the voice actors do their jobs greatly, and I really dig the characters.  Tazmanian Kid and LioConvoy are my favs of the Maximal side.  I'm really glad you guys are dubbing this and other Japan TF series.  I hope you do them all eventually.

Questions:
1) I'm having a hard time understanding what Scuba is saying at two times in the first ep.  First is when he's reading that book on the Maximal base (Kid responds, "I agree Scuba, 100%!"), then when he's on that ship going to Gia(sp?) afterward, right before that circular wave hits from the planet.  And what is Bighorn saying after Kid says, "What are you doing?  Man you battle stations!"?

2) I always pronounced LioConvoy "Leo-Convoy."  Is it really supposed to be "Lie-o-Convoy?"

3) The Predacons.  I liked that they're vechicles, and use the original G1 transformation sound (not sure if you guys added that yourselves), but why just the "transform!" voice-transformation command?  Why don't they say "Terrorize?"

4) When will ep #5 and more come out?  Any set dates yet?

5) Does your dub happen at the same times that the Japanese version of this, and their dub of OUR BW show?  I heard BW 2nd is supposed to be many years after the CG BW toon, but the IDW comics say otherwise.


Other Comments:
The Starscream here sounds EXACTLY like the one from the Unicron Trilogy toons (Armada/Energon/Cybertron).  I know it's not the same voice actor, but the similarity is uncanny. 

LioConvoy's voice sounds similar to G1 Prime's also, but with some if its own distiction as well.  All the characters have great English voices, and help make the characters great and enjoyable. 

I hope who Moon and Artemis are, and where exactly they are, are revealed at some point.  I can only guess now they're in the moon somewhere.

I'd like to get to others, like BW Neo, but I'm guessing that's post-BW 2nd, so I'll wait until BW 2nd is done.

178  TFCog Productions / Beast Wars Second FDP / Need help finding video-player program that plays TF Cog fandubs on: July 05, 2008, 02:23:43 AM
On my home computer with WinXP, the video doesn't show up on Windows Media Player, but the audio does.  On my Real Player program, however, it all runs fine (been mostly watching BW 2nd).  My problem is this: I'm spending some time at a friend's house, and we were going to watch the fandubs; they have WinXP with WMP ANd Real Player, same as me, but only the audio works for the frist, and nothing worked for the second (their RP was very outdated).  I went to real.com and updated their Real Player to the current, and it only played the audio as well.  Any advice?  I've only seen 2-3 eps of BW 2nd so far, and am enjoying it very much, and my friends would too.

Thanks.

My mistake.  Our PM chats were on allspark.  But the new site is still on tfcog.com, and I need your help still, Tag; I found your access info, but need help getting the site fully together.

180  General Discussion / TFCog Discussion / To Taggenagger and others re: G1 Virtual Season 4 site on: April 01, 2008, 12:29:31 AM
I already had an account on this site awhile back, but I just found out it doesn't exist when I came back just now.  My PM section had notes between myself and Taggenagger about the site that he'd help transfere from the old URL:

http://www.logopolis.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/virtual-transformers-tv/

...to the new one on tfcog.com:

http://www.virtualtransformerstv.thetfcog.com

Not all of the components of the old site have been transfered to the new one yet, but I'm hoping I can get some help with that (among other still-needed stuff).

Thanks in adavnce.
