What am I up to?

2009-04-24 10:21:46 by tank2tank

It's been a good while since my last news post on Newgrounds, and even though I don't have anything GROUNDBREAKING to report right now, I figured I'd make this news post anyway. FAQ style!

Q: What the hell have you been doing for the last year? I miss your animations.
A: I've done a lot actually, probably more than I've done on any previous year. I made my website, which took many solid hours of tedious dreamweaving to come together. I've also made MILLIONS of videos and continued to animate stuff throughout.

Q: You say you were animating, but you haven't uploaded anything to NG in a year, how cumzit?
A: Some were personal animations, some were included as parts of my videos, and other animations were started but then forgotten. I just never got round to doing a new Newgrounds flash, that's all.

Q: Give me one good reason why I should still be interested in your NG account, then.
A: Because I'm still going to use it. I'm still going to upload more things. You don't want to miss out now, do you?

Q: Stupid Mario Bros. 4?
A: No.

Q: What are you doing at the moment then?
A: In terms of Flash, there are a LOT of things in the early stages of development: Some are partly animated, some I've partly voiced, others are just ideas thrown together in a text document. Some will never get finished, others might. It's just the way I work. Some of the stuff could turn out awesome though, and I mean, REALLY awesome.

Q: Could you be a bit more specific?
A: Pop! One evil idle blow! (Figure this one out and I'll be amazed not to mention terrified.)

Q: I'm craving more tank2tank- related entertainment for my emphatically bored siblings. Please help.
A: Go on my website then.

It's that time of year again, and instead of me jumping off my lazy ass to make another flash, I've sort of slightly got off my ass to do a fairly important update to my site. Version 2.1 I dub it, not that I needed to. Check it out because it's all I'm doing for this Christmas.

Lots of stuff coming next year. Seriously. Maybe.


Sequel talk

2008-09-27 06:28:36 by tank2tank

OKayyyyy listen. I've made an article on my website here where I'm talking about the chances of me doing sequels to each of my things. Which sequels do you think I should make? (please for the love of god, don't just say stupid mario bros.)
I await your comments.

BY THE WAY there are 3 new cartoons (i think, unless i've forgotten how to count) that I want to make, and none of them are sequels. I think you guys are gonna like them though!



OHHH YESSSS ... My master plan is complete- I now have my new, redesigned and infinitely improved in every way tank2tank website.

I seriously suggest you check it out if you're a fan of any of my stuff, as there's a good deal of exclusive content on there.


Stupid Mario Bros 3 ONLINE NOW

2008-05-30 15:45:10 by tank2tank

Did I say Sunday? I meant Friday! Stupid Mario 3 is right here!

Basically I somehow managed to get it all finished today, so to surprise you all I decided to upload it 2 days early. Go nuts.



I know this is what everyone's been waiting for but I've never got round to doing it. BUT, this week I had several spare hours of nothingness, so I sat down and now Stupid Mario 3 is almost finished! Because of that I can fairly confidently set a release date of next Sunday (June 1st) Who knows, it might even be done before then. (Don't get angry if I dont make this deadline cuz you will probably only have to wait a few days extra in the worst case scenario.)

So, if you had no idea, Stupid Mario Bros 3 is the third (and final) episode in the Stupid Mario trilogy. Because of the 1 and a half year gap between this and the 2nd one my animation skills are now much better, and you'll be glad to know the frame rate is smoother and the detail much better. But, its still definitely Stupid Mario in terms of style and content, there are plenty of references back to the previous ones as well (yes, I still use Homer Simpson voice clips.)

Here's a random screenshot. I'll leave it up to you to try and guess how the hell the bros get in that state.

Stupid Mario Bros 3 GOING ONLINE THIS SUNDAY


Logo redesign

2008-05-29 05:13:47 by tank2tank

Nothing big here, just thought I'd say that I've redesigned my logo and its now a lot better as you can probably see. It'll be replacing the old one at the start of all my flashes from now on.

Hey all, just thought I'd give you a few very vague details about a new cartoon series that I'm about to start work on. It's gonna be a joint project with Sean Rugg, (his website, about parkour, is HERE) He's one of the funniest people I know and chances are this will be the funniest and biggest series I've been involved in so far. It's abbreviation is WIB. I'm not going to tell you what it stands for just yet, so I'll leave you all guessing. The only other hint I can give you is the teaser image below. But don't worry! The series is not going to be based around penises, or anything like that! You'll just have to wait and see...

(PS: Don't talk about Stupid Mario 3 here. Just be patient and shut up until I DO get round to finishing it. OK?)

WIB: A new cartoon series- first details


Star Wars cheat codes

2008-02-27 16:00:48 by tank2tank

Here are all the cheats I managed to squeeze into my latest game Star Wars rogue squadron. They're nothing special, really, but they'll help you out if you're finding it too hard and lots of people were asking for them. So:

DARTHJARJAR- Infinite shield
HELPMEOBIWAN- Shield recharge mode
ITSTOOQUIET- Infinite seismic charges
TWELVEPARSECS- Checkpoint skip
THEREISNOTRY- Super weak shield
GROOVYEWOK- Disco mode
YT1300HYPERDRIVE- Debug mode
4HAN7OMM3N8CE- Tank2Tank's mode (don't ask ... oh and thats a zero in the code by the way, not a letter O.)

Also, entering HUNKOFJUNK activates a cheat which was supposed to slow down the speed of your ship during ring sequences, but I couldn't get this to work in time.
