T.F.S in ODST???

Hello peeps.

I have been getting a few messages about whether I am going to use ODST for T.F.S. The answer to this question is "No".... I will not be using ODST for my series for a number of reasons. The main reason is the same as to why I did not use Halo 3 campaign for my series.

The other is because it is too limited. Firstly, it's all based on Earth. T.F.S isn't based on Earth and there are only 4 characters, the rest are A.I, I only like to do things if they are purely created by me. Vehicles, Men and Elites must be able to be controlled by a real person, not the A.I. The firefight mode would purely be 4 players acting out scenes based on what the covenant do. This doesn't bode well considering I am limited to how I film the shots, what happens in the scene.

I may as well play firefight with some friends and edit it up.

I will obviously use the Mythic map pack, but this isn't ODST, it's multiplayer.

Just so your aware, I will not be using anything from the ODST Disc for T.F.S and this is not why the episode is taking time. It's taking time because the animation we are doing is all being done by one person and when you see it, you will realise why it has taken a while. It's purely because doing what we are doing is extrememly difficult although it may not look like it...

Speak soon.

Darknal Interview

Hello Peeps....

No update on Part 8 at the moment, things moving a bit slow due to CONAN, the real person being at work and so have to wait for him to return before continuing the script :)

But I have done an interview for Captain Jack Hammer at this link below:

Live with Captain Jack Hammer Ep 5 Part 1

I feature in Part 2 so at the end of Part 1 you will need to select the little box at the top left of the screen. So if you want to see me ramble on about myself, go check it out.

T.F.S Update 14th September


Back from my holiday with my son. Amazing times as he enjoyed it so much.. Makes me happy :)

As Big Team shoots are very limited I have been working on the editing of the first half of the episode. Coming along nicely I would say. Very difficult as most of this episode is story and not much EPICNESS as many are waiting for. BUT, as this is a long movie, there will be episodes at a smaller scale and some episodes being big like Part 7. I just want you guys to know that this episode is based around the introduction of the Chief and taking the story further but still sticking to the core feel of T.F.S as you know it.

I am awaiting some animation from my brother Dave, who does all the animation for Ships etc although it's not a space scene he's working on, it's something else and this takes time, hense the huge delay in the episode being started. I needed to know it could be done before progressing with it. It might not be a lot to you guys when you see it, but this end, it's exremely difficult.

Then obviously we are doing some big team stuff that takes time and planning, but haven't got round to doing that side yet as I've been concentrating on more story based things at the moment.

But now the summer is over, I can put more effort into producing Part 8, which Part 9 will be straight into production as soon as I have completed Part 8. I don't want you guys to wait a huge ammount of time again, although, I can't promise anything with my schedule. It does break my heart that you guys wait so long and if I could I would do anything to be more commited but upholding my lifestyle is not easy and takes a lot of my time up.

Well, the first half is done and it is already around 8 minutes long so will be a long episode, but not full of the action you may hope for, but story for those who wish to see progression.

Hope the update will suffice.

Kind Regards
