Well, i think its time to start this project on its own thread (see http://www.biteycastle.com/smf/index.php/topic,1393.msg25539.html#new
for info). There are still a few details we need to sort out, but first, a little info.
The aim is for something like a collab made by brackenwood forum members, that can contain a mix of games and movies. You can either work in a small group, or make your own peice, based on a yet to be decided theme. There are a few problems however:
1.Since both AS2 and 3 can be used, which one is most popular?. Flash files can only be made in one or the other, so which should be used?, we need a little info on that before we can start anything.
2. Would it be better to make an overall file containing all pieces of the project, or allow each participant to make his own movie, and find a way to tie it to the project (such as a general preloader, etc). While the second option allows each person to customise the file to his own preferances (such as AS version), it will also mean each peice is basically more isolated. If this is submitted to NG, it would be hard to link all of the files.
3. We need a theme, people can suggest a theme in this topic, which will be discussed, and the favourate chosen.
Im sure that there are more points, but i cant remember any, so those will likely be posted below.
Also, some rules:
(specific to a combined file)
Each entry should be placed inside a movie clip, this is so it can be copied easily into the main file.
Symbols should have _"your user name" next to them, to prevent clashes when they are all added into the same file.
Resolution would have to fit the main resolution.
24 fps. With a little clever time based AS, you could get away with lower frame rates, or making each frame double (leaving 12fps)
Stick to the theme

Any other points would be appreciated
Some extra points to include (thx alv):
There should also be a slightly serious note to this project, so try to keep your part that way.
Musicians are also welcome. Anything that will add to the quality of the project is welcome
