World of Tanks – My long journey to Tier X has finally ended

June 5, 2012

Warning: Very long Non-OELVN Blog Post

Finally! After nearly 2 years… I have reached the very pinnacle of what every player of World of Tanks always wanted to be… and that is to be a Tier X player. But before anything else what is this World of Tanks I’m talking about and why in the world did I spend considerable amount of time (and real life money) into it…

Now that I think of it it’s kinda romantic in a way… the first tank I saw, the first tank that blasted the hell out of me was the MAUS piloted by AfrikaKorpsSoldat (via Team Kill) and in a really odd twist of fate I am once again paired up with AfrikaKorpsSoldat in a platoon the time I finally unlocked the E-100 (a German Tier X tank)… ehem Read the rest of this entry ?

Parallax in Ren’py?… and other news tidbits…

May 20, 2012

Going to make an effort to post more from now on… or at least as much as my really tight schedule permits me…

OK where were we?… While trying to achieve something else by stealing err… I mean borrowing a few codes from here and there I accidentally noticed an odd skewered image that is meant to be a square and realized that I can actually control the amount of skewing which can be potentially be used to create a sort of Parallax in Ren’py… though I’m still trying to figure out what kind of mess I got myself this time… NO I’m not sharing this code YET since I’m still trying to figure this out myself… also, precision is a hit or miss… took me 4 hours to edit the values to match the door above with the skewing of the image below to give the impression of parallax…

I tell you I am so excited that I actually threw every scheduled task I have out of the window and spent the rest of daylight hours focused on this (Sorry DarkSpartan)… as far as I can tell… no one has ever done a Ren’py game that utilizes Parallax… with this I might even become famous in the Ren’py community!… Oh yeah!…. but first, I have to figure out what and how in the world did I come up with this thing I just mashed up from other peoples code in my lame attempt to imitate AliceSofts flip-flop image technique…

In other OELVN related news… I accidentally stumbled on a video play-through of my NaNoRenO entry MARIJUANA The Truth… Lol…

And FINALLY… on a really unrelated to VN news… I finally unlocked the E-100 Tier X Heavy Tank in World of Tanks… officially ending my EXP grind to the top! Thanks to AfrikaKorpsSoldat for staying with me during the final hours before unlocking the E-100… it was a blast trolling everyone there… Lol! Now I just needed to grind for credits…

That’s it for now… I got a couple of other news tidbits but let’s save them for later…

World of Tanks NA-Server “AMAZING Luchs Run”… 11 Kills!

March 12, 2012

This post is non-OELVN or VN project related… I just have to brag about this… I can’t resist… Lol!

Anyway, this is from the game World of Tanks… it is an online game where you use tanks to kill each other…

Using my favorite tank the German “Luchs”… Most people frown this tank which is understandable since the Luchs is ridiculously crappy when stock but once you got every part upgraded and manned by a fully trained crew with complete set of skills supported by performance enhancing modules… the Luchs is a Noob Killer… while the rewards playing in low tier games is pretty much limited, the fast paced action is more than enough to keep me coming back for more since it’s normally campfest in high tier games…

Now if only the World of Tanks devs will implement landmines… it would be lulzy everywhere with tracks flying here and there and my life will be complete… Lol!

Oh well…

June 5, 2011

WARNING! – Non OELVN related post… Lol!

OK getting first place in a contest is great but getting two first place TWICE!?… FEELS GREAT MAN!!!… Anyway, I’m talking about World of Tanks – Tank Skin Contest which I joined and entered two categories… and won both of them with flying colors… CLICK HERE for the contest result announcement. So what was World of Tanks again?… It’s basically an Online Multiplayer game where you drive a tank and blast the HELL out of everyone… of course it’s a bit more complicated than that but… (click on the link to learn more)

Anyway… Here’s my first winning entry… a FIRETRUCK skin for the LOLTRAKTOR (see image above)… click here to see the original post

And the second winning entry… a TAXI skin for the MS-1 (see image above)… click here to see the original post

So I won bragging rights and 12,000 In-Game Gold which I invested wisely by purchasing a Löwe, a German Heavy Tank for farming purposes and expand my Garage to accommodate future tanks…

Whatever… I go for now…
