"5 Years Strong"
Today Infodarkness turns 5. Kick Ass! To celebrate, I'm putting up my 24th video. :) Starship Troopers. Cut to a great tune by Blur, Song 2. The first time I heard this song I said to myself; "Wow, that would go prefect to Starship Troopers," and even though it's short (only two minutes), I think it gives the punch that that movie needs. Nothing like a good old alternative song that rocks, cut to carnage and ultraviolence to get the blood pumping. I think this one does that, and it was fun to put together. Just wish the song was longer so I could show even more of the ultraviolence, lol.

Well the next one I'm plaining to work on is going to be a project just to render it to the hard drive, and the song I'm planing on using I would consider Classic Rock. Due to the amount of time it's going to take to render this project I don't want to say that it's going to be out next month. But hopefully we'll see it on the site by the end of March, or the beginning of April, depending on how hard I work on it. :)

Well I hope you have enjoyed all we've brought to you over the past five years. In the beginning all I really had was Dark Matter. Now the site has grown far beyond that, and hopefully it will only grow more.

"How time flies"
Can you believe it?!?
This month is almost gone, and still no new video up on Infodarkness. Well, it's almost done. I have about another 20 seconds left within the song, and then I need to come up with the ending. Of course after that I need to encode it, uploaded it, and write all the html pages. So far it looks like it's coming out pretty good. It's a rock'n song (though I won't say which), and it's getting back to some of the harder, driving stuff I've done in the past. Besides that I've been working on my FRUA module, and have reskinned the whole project. I found a modified frame set from a Ravenloft module that was created by Ray Dyer, someone within the community, and I thought that it was just prefect for what I'm trying to do with Neverwhere. I took a few screenshots so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. I think that if you compare them against last months shots you'll agree that all the work that went into the mod was worth it. Please note that these shots aren't as clear as the older ones for some reason, so you'll just have to play the game for the full effect. :) The coolest thing I've found since working on this project is a program that will let you emulate DOS on an XP system giving you all the features built into the game, like sound. It's a program called DosBox, and it's the best thing I've found to run these older games. It allows you to mount the folders as drives and then access your files from there. It's really cool.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the latest transmission from the Nether
