#858456 Hi everybody

Posted by Juli-Mizrahi on 30 October 2015 - 02:56 AM

I'm glad to see XC is still alive and kicking. This place will always hold a place in my heart, and without is there wouldn't be dn, devpro, or any of those other knock offs. They did it better, but we did it first.

#854279 Exarion's Journey through Pokémon Art Academy

Posted by Exarion on 19 January 2015 - 04:36 PM

Here we go!

All the LESSONS in game have a step-by-step on the upper screen, so we draw on the touch screen.

 

We start the game with an "admission exam", drawing a Pikachu/Froakie/Piplup face with nothing but pastel crayons.

Then we go through the Beginner course, where we draw upon a layer of outlines... This isn't so interesting, so I won't post those pictures.

 

The Novice course is a bit more challenging, where we draw upon basic shapes (and start to use other tools, shadow effects). Now, this still isn't the same as drawing by myself, yet we are much more free to work on details.

 

After that we have Graduate lessons, starting with a blank layer. Of course, we still have the step-by-step, but now it's real work!

 

Actually, it's possible to "cheat" by requiring the basic shapes and even the outlines, but I don't do that. >_>

 

 

I really liked some results in my Novice course. Keep in mind the backgrounds are added by the game. <.<

#858448 XC's New Forum Structure?

Posted by Gren on 29 October 2015 - 11:22 PM

This is dumb. the forum and site is dead. This is pointless.

I can save it though.

I have been working on something during my hobby hours with Unreal Engine. Don't quite have the exact direction that i want to go with it.

But it deals with a life size duel arena

 

I'm not going to go around and stir things up, but if you think it's pointless, why even bother making a contribution? There is some things going on behind the scenes that I can't mention but I wouldn't consider us out  of the count. The direction with all these "revival" attempts were just something that couldn't be done. I think DarkBlaze was the only worthy contender but with the amount of negativity going on, he was just getting stressed (which may or may not of been the case, just how I saw it). I have some plans going forward but right now we need to focus on one thing that will bring people in and not a mound of projects that will have everyone confused to as what's going on. Baby steps. Throwing too much on the plate is going to get us nowhere. Recreate an identity, stick with it to draw more people in or bring people back, then add something new. We've all moved on from YVD and accepted it's death. Jesse and storyteller are doing a great job trying to keep people interested. I want to expand more into M:TG. It's a dream that I could achieve with a little time, effort, and dedication. I'm sure someone is going to ask why I'm not a mod or admin or whatever since bringing these ideas on board. Right now, time is something I can't control. After my cancer treatment is finished, I can dedicate more time into this place. I was planning on raiding in WoW again but since the guild I was in died until next expansion, I can really put some time in here.

 

There was some that told me I should just move on and leave this place behind. Sadly, I can't. Most of my past came from this place and I would like to be the one to say "Yeah I was that asshole troll back in the day but look, people can change and do great things!" It was a pleasure to be able to finally get a moderator position as the M:TG mod for a while but life took over. It happens. However, the way I have my life planned out on stone now, I want to put more of my resources here. It's not dead. Just needs a purpose again.

 

 

TL:DR I care for this place too much to let it die. It's not dead. If you have nothing positive to say then don't say anything at all. Honestly, there's been more activity here then when Setever tried to do too many things at once.

 

His ideas were good on paper, but were they needed? If there's one thing I learned in life it's question everything. Gives you a better understanding of the situation.

#855336 Oh how the mighty have fallen (My rant on XC)

Posted by Bladers on 26 February 2015 - 03:36 PM

Okay. Well here are my 6 cents. The situation though hopeful looks bleak. There can be a comeback. But it won't happen just from small changes here and there. These have to be changes that have IMPACT.

 

1) Services 

 

In my opinion i think XC should become a service. Just like how MS is becoming a service now.

As setever has outlined. I do like the direction of the deck builder for all TCG. I also believe its being made for the web. Well that is vital,

If its standalone executable it will fail. Anything standalone in terms of online F2P will fail in this day and age, unless it comes in form of a app and that is where windows 10 comes in.

 

2) Deck Builder App on All Platform

 

I believe you also need a deck builder app for windows 10. With 10 being universal; meaning the same apps will run on the desktop, tablet, phone and console. That is alot of market you are reaching that will point back to XC. People can build decks from anywhere and then you can have addition features like rulings, combo, suggestions.

 

Like an Office Suite. The goal should be to provide as many services as you can.

 

3) TCG related NEWS

 

News relating to TCG should be headlined on the main page. Take for example hololens that was just revealed.

Alot of talk have been circulating about its potential for dueling and pokemon battles. These news angle are what needs to be covered on XC. Brings in fresh breathe and leads to fruity discussions.

 

These are in-direct TCG related news. When people search keywords like dueling with hololens.

XC becomes #1 site that comes up. They read the news, they like the speculations, the discussion and the proposed concepts and ideas.

They are now thinking, let me save or register for this site, because when a software does arise or additional news concerning a new yugioh software in relation to VR/AR. They will be on top of it and i will be informed.

 

4) Cover related Games

 

Cover games, there are a few games that have been released, MTG, pokemon something. write about phenomenons like the viewers playing pokemon on twitch.

 

Remember you are looking for exciting stories and news that will incite rich discussion and clicks from google and interest from new visitors. You won't keep any new visitor ten seconds if your main news on the main page is from 3 months ago.

 

5) Site redesigned

 

Its too basic and is lacking content. That doesn't mean overload it or even make it TCG or yugioh centric.

But it should be a richer experience and not just a bunch of text slapped onto a brown background.

There needs to be icons, and the works..

 

6) Creative-Dueling

 

Whatever name you want to call it. It must happen. 

All successful business or ideology has a defining product.

A flagship product. I have a few ideas, but i will keep my mouth shut for now.

Out of curiosity, would it be possible to change the chat link in the navigation bar at the top of the forums to link to the Discord server considering it currently leads nowhere anyway?

#855921 Create-A-Card Competition

Posted by RiverShock on 06 April 2015 - 06:33 PM

Ilexia, Insect Ruler of Infestation

WIND/Insect/Effect

2800/1800/Lv 7

During either player's turn, if this card is in your hand or Graveyard: You can banish a total of 2 Insect-Type monsters from your hand and/or Graveyard, except this card; Special Summon any number of "Insect Monster Tokens" (Insect-Type/EARTH/Level 1/ATK 100/DEF 100) to either side of the field. You can discard this card and 1 Insect-Type monster monster to the Graveyard; Special Summon 1 "Insect Queen" and 1 "Insect Princess" from your hand, Deck or Graveyard. While this card is in your Graveyard, monsters are always treated as Insect-Type. If an attacking Level 5 or higher Insect-Type monster you control, except "Ilexia, Insect Ruler of Infestation", destroys a monster by battle while this card is in your Graveyard: Its ATK is doubled, and it can attack once again in a row.

 

 

Well, that's quarter of an hour of time I'm not getting back. I think this shows how unrealistic this competition is. And why competitions this narrow in scope shouldn't even happen. Oh, and the complete lack of balance is deliberate, in case you feel the need to wonder.

#855453 Exarion's Journey through Pokémon Art Academy

Posted by Exarion on 04 March 2015 - 04:55 PM

Many thanks, guys. =]

 

Hurry Bardon!

 

 

 

So I tried the FREE PAINT mode for the first time.

Unlike the LESSONS, here we don't have a step-by-step, but still they offer several templates (event downloads are stocked here). They quickly present "basic shapes - outline - template" before starting, but the upper screen is static. We actually may switch between those 3 options and no image, in addiction to show the outline/basic shapes on the touch screen. Yet I adopt the standard "complete reference" on upper screen, "blank" for touch screen, but with grids to get a minimal help.

Backgrounds still from the game.

 

 

 

Espurr with outline pen and paintbrush tools (template from free paint, bg from Gengar lesson):

And back to graduate LESSON, a harder one:

Charizard with paintbrush and pencil tools

#852685 Life, why you such a bitch.

Posted by kakashipwnzor on 28 November 2014 - 09:20 PM

It's been awhile.

I've had a shitton happen.

Let's start from the top.

I have a PS4 now. You people should add me. IGN is KotovBestPony.

I ended up moving out of my house, since my parents were moving out. Luckily for me, my "sick" friend who was bedridden for 3 months got kicked out after not being able to pay the rent since he hadn't been to work in 3 months. I say "sick", because he was perfectly fine until anyone asked him to do anything. He also broke the sink in the bathroom with his beard hair. I still haven't tried fixing that.

So I moved in with the people who put up with him, and I've just been chilling ever since. Work sucks, but such is life.

I've given up on just about every TCG, since A. the card shop here became a complete shithole, and B. bringing them up around the previous owner of said card shop tends to make him a bit on the mopey side, with the exception of the pony card game, and Magic, since he's wanting to start playing that again.

But other than that, life has been pretty chill. Got everything I need here, planning a second trip to Florida around Spring Break, and above all, I have cats around me.

...They're complete assholes. Except for Fatty. She's adorable.

Fuck I'm bad at ending these.

...Yeah.

I hate it when he does that when a nudge is actually warranted. Moreso than the stupid times, since there's actually some merit to it. But the way he does it is so annoying and stupid. Seriously, EeL, it wasn't funny the first time. It's not going to be funny the 756th.
