Knob Construction Kit and other stuff

Moving the Website involved more work than i thought. Since I lost the original documents in a Hard Drive Crash, I downloaded the site from the geoshitty server. As it turns out each page was plagued with the geocities Java Script, so i basically had to reformat new pages for all of the HTML documents. What a pain… A problem with doing tedious stuff like that, i have a tendency to get bored and look for ways to make it more interesting, so I’ve been working on changing the pages around a bit.

Out of curiosity, i’m wondering if anyone is seeking knobs. I remember SLiCE or someone had mentioned that they were going to be creating some knob graphics for people to use on their mods. If anyone knows more about this please email me and let me know.

I made some basic knobs for others to use as templates in creating customized ReBirth V2.0 knob graphics. The archive has the 3Dmodels, Quicktime Animations, and the fullsize Photoshop Documents with layers, so that you don’t have to go through all the stuff I did, and you will get some pretty descent knobs with smooth, motion. I will probably include all the relevant files so anyone who is interested in learning about the techniques involved, and try them out for your self:-)

So if anyone is interested in getting ahold of these files, please contact me, and i’ll make them available for download, or email them or something, but please note that it’s a bit of a hefty file. 5 megabytes compressed which expands to 22 megabytes. The Big files are the 4 Photoshop 5.0 documents which have the different parts masked and layered–before they have been reduced. I will post up a small Jpeg only version soon for anyone else to use.


P.S. Get TRANSIT, i’m not getting an edorsement or anything, it’s just the best MacOS FTP Client Application that i’ve ever used–for any Mac Users out there who still use an FTP client to access info-mac hyperarchives or your web site host, (yeah, i know, Hotline is has made life so much easier, but it still doesnt do everything yet). Accessing my new web site is a piece of cake with this sucker, and the file transfer is quite quick too:-)
