We're almost... done?
« on: August 02, 2004, 08:54:01 AM »
I believe I've completed work on my portion of the writing. Bons is still working on the quest (you'll be pleased, this is not a hastily-thrown together sort of personal quest we're talking about here!) and I'll be doing my best to help flesh that out.

We're trying to narrow down to a voice actress selection.

That is all.

Music to my ears, no pun intended. I've waited so long for this mod.  ;D

Yes, we're still working! Editing the quest and making it all as satisfying as we know you want it has been a little time-consuming, but then, if we present you with a "WINNING KETO PERFORMANCE" that doesn't seem terribly winning, you'll be cross and we can't have that. So, please bear with us!

Not trying to be impatient or anything but is this Winning Keto Performace going to be available soon? Just haven't seen anything update for about 3 weeks, and for a while in August it seem liked it was going to be out sooner.

Yeah, it did seem like it was going to be out sooner. Then we had to spend a lot of time making sure that when we said Keto was putting on a good performance it really read like she was. And we discovered how tedious it is to code up 60-block PC conversations. And so forth. We're working on it.

Preliminary beta builds are now available to testers as we gather up important details like the remaining audio and finish up the bard competition cutscenes. We're getting there!

Well, that's definitely incentive to work harder.  ::)

y'guyz ... c'mon what's happening?  I wanna see Keto!  In other news, I was just curious, is Keto going to sing in this mod, like in Surrayah?

The beta basically works! However, because Keto is such a large, talky undertaking, we're still wrangling together audio from various sources. Stoplight promised us she would lock herself in the studio all weekend. We're holding her to that.

As for singing: Yes, there will be singing. I'm not quite sure I would describe it as "like Surayah," though.

But that's more to do with the kind of singer Keto is than the kind of singer Stoplight is.

Really.

I should go on to say that we are strongly considering releasing a V1 even if we're missing audio we'd like to have for a couple of support characters. But we'll see.

Really! Red is entertaining, even when she's sing-acting. Yes, she's acting! That's the ticket!  :D

Also, there is a fair amount of singing from other people in this mod. None of them are jcompton or me. Prepare to be amused, delighted and bewildered, in no particular order.

Newt had always suspected that people who regularly used the word "community" were using it in a very specific sense that excluded him and everyone he knew.

What?  No ballad from Mr. Compton?  Great, now my hopes for this mod have officially been crushed.


No, no... I'm just playin'  :P


I'm still intrigued as hell.

Curiously enough, the amount of feedback saying "Jason should sing in more mods more often" has been about zero. So. :)

No one more than me, I assure you. The audio directory is at 11 MB and counting, just waiting for more Keto audio to trickle in from Gillespie Studios Ltd...
