Re: PROJECT: Internal Structure of MH

I'd like to see some attention given to this page: http://www.gearsonline.net/series/fivestarstories/story.html It looks bad right now. Anything we can do? A Float Temple profile would be fun if we can provide some interesting information. Other than that, how about 3 more fatima profiles and a chec...

Re: Any new Super Robot shows out lately?

Mecha anime is on the wane in Japan. We don't get a lot of new titles these days. I don't know of any that are very recent. For years now the Super Robots genre (sub genre?) has been becoming so flexible that people can argue what qualifies. Was the Lagann in Guren Lagann a super robot? Perhaps some...

Re: PROJECT: Internal Structure of MH

I found out I'll have free time after June 16th. It would be nice to sit down then and look at formatting the translated article. During the 2nd half of June I'll be scanning FSS material and discussing with everyone how to use it. Nu Soard, will you have some time then?

Re: Some Scanning

I have good material to scan for an L-Gaim section. Need to find some nice time, though.

FSS Designs 4?

Any news on FSS Designs 4? I saw some material that hints there will be a volume 4. Now that Gothic Made is finishing will FSS manga pick up again?

Some Scanning

I spent some time last night scanning black and white line art from the pages of FSS Reboot 7. There are several line art images of mortar headds that only appeared as color images before. Not really new images.

FSS work never ends.

Re: PROJECT: Internal Structure of MH

A good compromise may be to have blocks of text sit "on top" of the image. That way, we get the visual effect you like but can keep image size down. Let's see what other people think.

Here's a JQuery plug in. We wouldn't let site visitors add their own text, though. I'm just concerned about having to remake the whole image every time there's a text update. Anyways, we have options.

Re: PROJECT: Internal Structure of MH

A thought occurred to me. What if we put letters instead of the full text for the call-outs in the images? Each letter would match with a block of text (true text) below or to the side of the image. It would keep image size down. Any thoughts on this?

PROJECT: Internal Structure of MH

I scanned and did color correction on all the images for the article today. They still need resizing and a little clean up but the tough part is over. I'd like this thread to show progress leading up to the final unveiling for the public of the article Internal Structure of Mortar Head. Nu Soard, ho...

Re: Dead message board :(

I'm sorry I'm having such a hard time scanning the images but I'll do it. I'm spending most of my time with my 8 month old son these days. He needs a lot of care. I would also enjoy reading the translated text of that article.
