And feel free to post your opinions, discuss it here and... if that wasn't a real prank, what would have happened?

Laughing

I found it to be hilarious, people were getting really emo about it. Razz

I personally had a mixed reaction. I was not sure believe it or not, I just stood back and watched to make my final decision.

I considered the possiblity of it actually be true. While I find those programs to be a great set of tools, even shp life looks promising..

I aready have the needed programs that crank out mods the good ole fashioned way.

It was set up very well, but futhermore... paying for modding tools... bah. So I cannot say yes, but i can say neither no.

I liked some of the reactions, people freaking out.
And I wasen't a victim, because I avoid the internet on April 1st.

The news itself was very funny, actually, and I did enjoy.

But you shouldn't have gone further than the news message and the website.
Releasing the incomplete tool versions with untested new features and the annoying fake trial message was a bad idea... especially since they came a day after April 1st (for most people, I don't know your time zone).

The tools were our way to say you were fooled.


Btw, PaD, I did tested the copy frames and reverse frames (and also the other two). They work fine... what I'm not so sure if it works fine is the undo. I've done a some tests with it and it worked fine, after many attempts... but I haven't tested all situations of copy frames and some rare situations of reverse frames.

Delete frames and move frames and were tested. Move frames worked, but the undo did not work when you moved certain frames from one to another SHP with or without shadows. The code had no way to trigger the other SHP when one of them was undone. I was coding this part, but it's not completed. Therefore, I've greyed the feature. Delete frames was deleting the wrong frames most of times for some strange and unexplained reason. So, I had to cut that one too.

Flood and fill with gradient was tested and worked very well on the vast majority of the cases. On some cases, it might not detect the whole gradient range due to the nature of how Westwood made the palette. They did not made a perfect gradient effect on some areas. In one very special case, it took the gradient that was ahead of it... but it didn't affect negativelly the results.

The new image effects were all tested and worked perfectly on all cases. Unfortunatelly, I've noticed that some of them, if not all, are useless to most of the users Laughing... at least in the current conditions. But I had some fun with the Uber Noise one #Tongue. The Poly Mean turned to be better than what I originally expected from it. Square Depth sucks bad.

I haven't read much news lately, so was the whole thing (PPMMSS) not true? only a joke? ok, so I say no, because I didn't spend my time to look "what is this?"

Exactly why i told Banshee not to do his standard April fools thing and post 1 hour later saying "its a april fools". The longer something goes on the more likly it is for ppl to belive it. This Hoax lasted about 2-3 days.

Everyone knows everything posted on April 1st is a prank, you need to think outside the box, otherwise u just get the general crap u normaly get with the compleatly obvious ones.

Note: i call it a Hoax due to ppls stupid "It has to be a 1 day boring event thats obvious to be classed as an April fool dispite the fact that there is 30 days in April"
