Site’s back after 24-hour downtime caused by a freaking server crash. Whoops. Fortunately, I had a backup dating back to February, but everything I posted between then and now is gone. I do have the missing posts saved thanks to SLAiNTRAX, though it’ll take some time to get them all restored.
So. Let this be a lesson to me: more backups = fewer headaches.
And my second Solatorobo 4Koma in as many days.
So it’s been five months. Long enough that 1. the game’s name has picked up an extra syllable in the middle, 2. the game is actually out now, and 3. most of you have probably given up any hope of an update.
Liar Game’s still on hiatus, so nothing new in that department. And I’m still puzzling over how to overcome some difficulties I’ve encountered with the Breath of Fire 1 retranslation. In the meantime, this has been long overdue.
Yes, I’m well aware that according to the official website, Red’s robot is officially “DAHAK-AZI03”. The katakana says “Dahaka”, which I admit is a lame excuse by my own standards, but it’s certainly less of a mouthful – plus, it’s a mythological reference, so now you know how Prince of Persia and Final Fantasy XIII got to have Dahakas of their own as well.
So it’s not Liar Game. It’s not Breath of Fire. Hell, it’s not even Sylvanian Families. So what? Allow me to alleviate the wait for Watercrown Productions’ Next Big Thing by presenting you with Watercrown Productions’ Next Little Thing: a translation of CyberConnect2’s first 4koma strip for Tail Concerto’s long-awaited spiritual successor, Solarobo.
Welcome to Watercrown Productions 3.0.
Yes, it’s been only six months since Watercrown Productions updated from the old Google Pages look to a stylish new Flatpress blog… but as an unexpected result of my collaboration with SLAiNTRAX, Watercrown Productions now has a new server, a new domain and yet another upgrade to WordPress.
In the meantime, keep an eye out for Liar Game 110 in the next couple of days.
Well, I finally broke down and upgraded my 110MB.com account. And about time, too: 110MB.com is switching over to a subscription-based model for its premium upgrades. Thankfully, they’re still offering lifetime premium upgrades for a one-time payment (if you know where to look), so if you’re interested in getting a fully-featured website of your own, you had better act fast.
What does this mean for the site itself? Not a whole lot at present, but it does open some doors.
I’ve added a new feature: now you can Digg my blog posts. Or so I hope. I’ve never really worked with Digg before, so I hope I’ve implemented it properly.
Anyway, give it a try and see if it works; we’ll find out together, won’t we?
The website has now been fully converted to use the new layout. For those of you who still have old bookmarks, those links now function as redirects to the new pages…where applicable, anyway. The pages for Sylvanian Families and Breath of Fire 2 are gone for good: the patches are all available on the sidebar to the right, and any links to those old pages now bring up the Sylvanian Families and Breath of Fire 2 blog categories instead.
Betcha didn’t see this one coming, did ya?
Awesome, ain’t it? Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to widen the gap between the new, improved 110mb.com-based Watercrown Productions and the old Google Pages look. I even wrote a program in Visual Basic to help me transfer all my old news updates – all of them – to the new, full-fledged Flatpress blog. Getting proper timestamps for them all was pretty much beyond hope, but at least the dates are correct.
(Actually, I lie. I folded all the updates from the Sylvanian Families and Breath of Fire 2 pages into the same set, meaning there were some redundant posts that had to get cut. The wittier posts won out.)
The site isn’t fully converted yet; all the other pages are still in the old style, but it’ll only be a matter of time before they’re all in my shiny new Deckay 3.0 theme. Also, this is still a free 110mb.com account (why do you think I went for Flatpress instead of WordPress in the first place?), so I still can’t upload my Murakumo OP video or the Doom: Repercussions of Evil recording. But then, you didn’t come for Murakumo or Doom, did you? That’s right…you came for the little stickman attacking the door! HAIYAAAAA!
Kidding, kidding. The incredible stuff-making engine of Watercrown Productions has been largely inactive as of late, but hopefully I’ll be able to get back to one of my many fabled projects in the near future. In the meantime, I’m planning to make this blog a bit more active: it’s certainly easier to post now. It’s like having a great big message board all to myself…
Comments! I can get comments again! I haven’t been able to get comments on my posts since the old Tripod DevBlog!
