Default [BatRep] ANIMATED Battle Report

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/52482140/

Click there to see my animated Tau battle report. It's a bit rough, only had a couple hours at school to work on it and I don't have flash at home. Battle happend a while back so some stuff might be a bit off. The main pat is do you like the animated format?

C&C of both my tactics and the flash animation are much appreciated!

(Good report, innovative too! +1, Mal)

Ooh, pretty. I liked just pressing the next buttons rapidly to see it in movie form. ^-^

Glad you liked it. Like I said, it could have been better but I kinda had to sneek it in past my computer teacher :P. If I had flash at home it could be better, but its like $300...

Glad you guys liked it.

Nice one, GeekyGator!
I personally would do it just a bit bigger, but that is just my taste of it.
And, the Text sometimes is not visible (is under the actual Unit) but that also is only me nitpicking you! 8)

Thumbs up!

Joe

i wanna make battle reports like that... Wahhha :'( s'not fair.

but good job, that was some really cool stuff, plus u did well in the battle which is always good. i also reckon u should get some karma thats wicked stuff, plus its not so boring as a huge mass of writing on 1 page, which i can never be bothered to read

Very nice. I think this is the best way to do battle reports now.

Thanks for the Karma, Mal.

Very happy that everyone liked this report so much. Really, it took me about 3 hours total to prepare, but most of that was making the drawings and organizing the layers- if you're familiar with Flash, you'll know what I mean.

As stated above, if I can coerce my parents into spending something like $300 on the software, I could come up with some really nice stuff. Unfortunatley the likelyhood of that is about the same as the moon turning blue.

Not bad at all.

I must say though, the hand writing looked like it came from a tablet and stylus, but then again, the smoothing strokes in Flash are great like that
Next time, obviously, consider adding a back button. I'm sure you know it would take a good 30 seconds.
Kudos on using some actionscript though, even if only a couple lines.

Also, if you're seriously considering getting Flash, try to get an older version. Much of the functionality remains the same (especially for the useage you intend), but the price drops quick.
