Most of my comments are in the flash. I just want to apologize again that I was not able to put all the competitors into the flash.

If anyone has suggestions, critiques, comments on things or such, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Also, if you have any questions, please ask. Either about the plot, characters, the flash, or if you want some tips on how to make your own flash comic, feel free to ask. I know this flash was really confusing. lol.

Credits are at the end of the flash.

Check out ~crystalleung7's entry: it's here! The comic is so funny and entertaining. My flash is dull and lame in comparison.

I'll put the rest of the links (audition, ref, etc) later because I have to go to work now. I apologize for any and all typos in the flash, I rushed a little bit of the writing and didn't have time to spell check it.

And FYI I did NOT procrastinate, I've been working on this flash almost nonstop since the round began. I've just been using this extra time to make it more awesome. You would not believe how long this thing took me. Seriously. Just finding the codes alone (I'm not great as Actionscript) was unbearably difficult. Also in case you were wondering, the flash is 216 frames total.

ANYWAYS I hope you enjoy this flash. Tell me if anything wrong/not working. I think the links at the end might not work, but I don't know how to fix it. :Y And help would be awesome. Okay. Time for work. LATER PEEPS.

Thanks for the Kirk and Talkbot cameo! Kirk must have been in a bad mood for some reason, I think on a normal day he'd just glare. XD Got used to not being able to talk.

Thanks so much! Congrats on making it to the next round!

Um, I can't even find the next button on that very first page with the three word bubbles. I honestly have no clue how to navigate your entry.

I used adobe flash cs5. It's definitely a really nice program if you have the money for it.I've just started working with it so I'm not that good yet, but thank you for your compliment. :3

Ooooh a full color flash entry. *enjoys navigating with arrow keys* :D I really enjoyed reading this, good luck! I like how you used different sides of the screen to follow the two different characters. And the mix between hallucination and actual fight was really interesting. I giggled at Arak being a fanged purple fire blob. XD

(And thanks for the Syra cameo btw.)

Well we'll see about that xD I sure hope I make it to the final. It would be sad if it was Tyger vs. Syra though... My plan is to make them good friends as long as Syra wins his round. Seeing them pitted against each other would be tragic ;n;

Hahah, that was wonderful x) I specially like the idea of Ty having a hallucination throughout the entire fight, and winning entirely out of sheer luck (and Arak's ego backfiring, of all things) - very clever!

Also, for the amount of time given, this thing looks pretty well thought-out, has a remarkable length and has a lot more details than one would imagine. Only things about the script that I'd point out are that some of the sections didn't seem very obvious at first (like Ymp being brought into the scene by Ty's hallusination, as I'd originally thought that the scoripan's -or scorpion's? I thought the 'a' variation of the name seemed like a fitting one for an alien subspecies, hee-), but one again, flashes are about the hardest things to do in OCTs so I wouldn't hold that against you.

However, you got Chi a bit on the OOC side since she's a pacifist, and she understands nightmares (and by extension, the accidents they cause) - so her sudden angry reaction was a bit exaggerated. But since the entire plot would be ruined without her reacting like that, I won't hold it against you. Blame it on a bad hair day, I guess :'D

Anyway, good luck in the judging panel! C:

Please excuse my derpage.

For the codes, did you find them on dA? Do you think you could possibly link me to some of the more helpful ones, if you still have the urls for them? I'm planning on doing a flash for my next round, on the chance that I win. ANd even if I don't, it would be nice to have the references for future projects.

I really admire your dedication with this, especially with coloring in all the frames. I know from experience that that can be really tedious. XD Good luck with the round though! I think you might just win! ;3

For the load bar, play button, and stopping the animation from going on, I used DA tutorials. For the rest of the codes (arrow key navigation, links at the end, making the credits appear at the end) I searched google. Here's a list of where I found the codes:

[link] this tutorial has all the codes you need for the load bar, has a few button codes, and also tells you how to stop the animation. It also does a pretty good job of explaining how to make the load bar and buttons and how to use actionscript. I used a couple other tutorials, but I didn't realize this one actually had all the codes I used xD but here's another tutorial with some good stuff ([link])

[link] Here's the page I used for the hyperlink code, but the second tutorial also has a different way to do it if you prefer.

And for the arrow key navigation... I honestly don't remember where I found that code but I do remember it took me a loooong time to find it. If you end up doing a flash and want the code, you can just note me and I'll send the code to you. Also if you want any help or tips I'd be glad to share my limited knowledge of flash and actionscript with you xD and just so you know, the codes up there are all for AS 2.0, so if your version of flash has AS 3.0, make sure you choose 2.0 when you make the flash (I have cs5 and I have to choose 2.0. I think 3.0 was just added in cs5 so if you have an earlier version you might not have to worry about it, but I don't really know).

And thanks for you kind words :) It was definitely a tedious task to color the frames but I'm glad I did. And it was actually a little fun. But I sort of like monotonous tasks. It's kind of comforting. And good luck to you as well!

OMG this is AWESOME.
I feel bad now. and sad. ;A;
You totally got Arak's personality right, its so funny seeing him all grumpy and such xDDD
This is awesome!
What do you mean your flash is dull and lame in comparison? >8U your entry is thousand times longer than mine! And it's coloured!
If you talking about dull and lame I think mine would fit the description better xD
Good luck!

Haha thanks. There's no need to feel bad. Your entry was great and I really liked it. I'm glad you like how I portrayed Arak. It's always scary using someone else's character. I'm always afraid I'll mess them up terribly. But Arak is a great character and I had fun drawing him.
Good luck to you also! I really wish we could both move on.

xD yea, but whoever moves on, (I this spark of intuition that it would be you) it doesn't really matter, because I know both of us placed many efforts to even get to the first round and it was fun xD I don't think ties ever happens in OCTs but i really wish ROA would do it.. but that's probably because I'm a coward xD
I understand by what you mean 'scary' of using someone else's character, trust me, I've messed up on Tyger in my entry and you didn't xD

I love how you put the info at the bottom, its really helpful ^^ Its cool how you had the two perspectives on each side of the screen at the begging. Congrats on getting this finished! Flash comics seem to so long, although I dont have much experience with it, and navigating this was fun and simple. I like how I didn't have to keep going into the artists comments to click next for each page xD The character development was great, and I loved the ending, how Tyger just barely missed getting shot by the purple lazor ^^
Good luck with judging!

Thanks. As I was making this, I was picturing it as a movie, which is where the idea for the dual panels at the beginning came from. Also why there's that frame after they transport that's all "Race of Aleria round one: Tyger vs. Arak". It's like the title screen. lol. Thank you for all your kind words. I don't feel like I deserve them. xD Good luck to you too! I love Kysar so much :)

That... was just... my God...

It looks like you really put your heart and soul into this, and it's simply amazing!

The character interaction was fantastic, the dialogue had me laughing one instant and on the edge of my seat the next, and the idea of Tyger hallucinating the entire time out in the desert was quite clever.

My one critique would be that the actual confrontation was a bit short, but I'm no authority on things like that (and besides, I suck at giving crits).

I want to wish you the best of luck!

Aw thank you so much! I really enjoy character interactions. That's why my comics always have so much speaking. xD I really wish I could've included more of the other competitors, they are all such unique and interesting characters. I'm so glad you liked the flash. I agree with you that the confrontation could've been a bit longer. I'm not that great at action scenes, but next round I'll try and do a longer fight. :) Best of luck to you also.
