Too bad they ruined it by zooming in until it fit the 16:9 aspect ratio

It’s just a test. The final version won’t be stretched to 16:9 and they have a lot on their plates so I would look at this as a minor inconvenience. They’re not stupid.

I was referring to that Onion Film Standard review video, what did you think I was talking about??

Natural Light has its uses. If I’m working outside on a hot day I’d rather have a Natural Light than any super-dense high gravity draft beer. It’s basically water, but sometimes you might be in the mood for that.

That’s why I like Coors Light. It’s basically yellow water.

Now just imagine Coors Light with even less flavor and you’ve basically got Natural Light

That works just fine. But did you use that animated poster background I sent you?

Yes, but that’s for the actual menu. The PS3 icon and loading screen can only be static images (well, the loading screen can be two images that alternate back and forth but it doesn’t look very good)

…then focusing on the full/international version after that, since that’ll take some tinkering to get as many audio/subtitle tracks to fit as it’ll let me.

I think we already covered this before, but I wanted to remind you just in case it makes menu authoring easier. The “titles” subtitles shouldn’t actually be visible on the subtitles menu. When you select a dub, the corresponding “titles” subtitles should just get auto-selected.

I have those titles set to automatically be on when the corresponding dub track is selected, but I also included them in the menu so that if someone turned them off they would have a way to turn them back on again (I mean, they COULD turn them back on by swapping to another audio track and back again but that probably wouldn’t be immediately obvious).

Maybe a dumb question, but what is the difference between the DVD and HDTV version?

Resolution

Sorry I wasn’t clear, what format is HDTV? I know there are DVD and Bou-Ray discs you can buy but I haven’t heard of an HDTV format disc before.

There are multiple formats that display HD video, but the answer really is “resolution”

Wikipedia said:
While there is no standardized meaning for high-definition, generally any video image with considerably >more than 480 horizontal lines (North America) or 576 horizontal lines (Europe) is considered high->definition.

DVD resolution is 720x480 for NTSC, and 720x576 for PAL, so HD is anything at a higher resolution than that.

I just heard from the guy working on it for me after a not having heard from him for a while and he says it’s almost done but can’t guarantee it will be out for x-mas.

Blu-ray update, since it came up:

While I tried real damn hard to get a Blu-ray ready in time for Christmas, it looks like that’s not gonna pan out (I underestimated just how long it would take to get all the menus set up; since it all has to be done from scratch in Photoshop that means having to make all 3 states for every single button (normal, selected, activated), including all 48 chapter point buttons (I used all the same chapters from the 2004 DVD release apart from the two scenes that don’t exist in this version. Some may say that’s too many chapters, I say too bad because I did it anyway))

Because I intended this to be a Christmas gift, I’ve been working on an English-only version first. Since I STILL intend for these to be gifts (I’ll just have to mail them), I’ll be finishing that up first, and then focusing on the full/international version after that, since that’ll take some tinkering to get as many audio/subtitle tracks to fit as it’ll let me.

I’ll be getting back home late at night on the 26th and will resume Blu-ray work the next morning. I don’t want to say that I’d GUARANTEE that the English-only version will be up on the Spleen by the end of the month but I’m pretty confident in it.
