Even without access to the WIP stuff on the old computer, I have some new stuff on the way.

Game Index

Here's one I've been waiting to do for a long time. Game pages will work like a ScrollBoss hub that will eventually link to any other place on the site with stuff about that game. The end result will (hopefully) look prettier and include screenshots and more. That box with the green S line in it will have a unique graphic for each game. Once I get this system up and running, it'll let me bring back the Saga sections that will link an entire series together. That's a battle for another day, though. The point is that there'll be one new section to the site for the anniversary.

Thanks, SKRON!

Believe it or not, more stuff started to fall into place right after I posted this. I have an early version of the screenshot function working and more area links are working with better descriptions. There'll also be a character list a bit like my Illmosis art pages have and will link to the S-Files profiles section once that's finished. One of the test cases will be Golden Axe for the Genesis since I have a really good amount of stuff from it.

I'll need help with a few things later on and I'll post about it here when that time comes :D There are some things that I'm thinking of that will link ScrollBoss and PCS together a bit more, too.

Dammit.

I screwed up some stuff when I was merging my new and old work folders. I overwrote the new 200x100 graphic template with the old one and lost the entire new font I made. Luckily, I made some examples with it and didn't have to rebuild much. Plus it was an easy font. The 200x100 graphics will (probably) be used on the game pages where that black box is. They show up in a few places on the site now, but they'll all be replaced. Here's a few of them:



And my current favorite...



The X-Men one still needs some tinkering, but you get the idea. I'm not going all out on every game because I need time in the day to take a shit or two. Not that you needed to know that, but still.

Most of the update is uploaded, but there may be some tweaks here and there before fully announce the update.

A few things you may want to check out:


The Game Index is up and has 6 games just to test things out.

The main Sprite Page now has news bits on it.

There's a Technos sprite edit page now that Linda and Roper from the ScrollBoss "Brawlstreet" banner along with a new gang member sprite.

Here's another graphic tag that didn't get used for anything yet:


That's it for now. There may be a few additions to all this later on today, but I need to get to sleep first.

edit: screw it, I'm finished with it. I did fix up a few more things and added some 80's Batman mini-logos. Between working on the site and feeling a bit sick, I need to get some rest. I can save a lot of unfinished stuff for the next update anyway.

Awesomeness. :D I like the new look quite a lot.

BTW, you may want to change one of your OPCFG links over to the new site address.

Just did that today. I just noticed that the link on the main links page still linked to the old place. Now all of them point toward the new site. Thanks for the heads-up o that!
