So I guess this is where we start to say Goodbye to Adobe products and embrace free alternatives…

July 3, 2013

First and foremost… I’m no longer a professional Graphic artist / Illustrator and I’ve basically reverted to this almost layman state when it comes to computers, software and other stuff related.

Now let’s go back to the topic at hand… Adobe Products…

I read from various internet news and articles that Adobe is now abandoning the old model where you pay outright for the product and instead force users to subscribe and pay monthly to use their products. Of course being a layman, the first reaction to this news was panic… as I read further… it is slowly becoming clear that the reason behind this extortion is motivated purely by greed. True, they have their justifications and sweet promises of always updated and a plethora of features that are only available to their subscription model.

So where am I going with this?… Honestly, I don’t know… I’m still having trouble comprehending as to why would Adobe do this to the people?… Piracy? What are you talking about!?… I purchased your product and still use them especially Adobe Photoshop 7… it’s outdated but it still works and I still have the original box with me when I purchased it years ago and the most recent one I purchased CS4 which is a total crap because some fucktard whom I wanted to hang, shot and burn his/her corpse in the Dreamweaver department decided to remove the layout mode and tell people to “DEAL WITH IT”… Yes, I pirated your products “TWICE”… First one is Adobe Photoshop 5 so I can learn how to use your product more thoroughly which eventually lead me to purchase Adobe Photoshop 7 legally and Adobe CS3 because it still have layout mode because you won’t allow me to downgrade my purchase and you removed the single biggest reason why I purchased CS product and that is the Layout Mode in Dreamweaver because I went to Saturday Web Making School and that is what they taught me there.

I’ll be straight… I don’t feel like paying Adobe anymore especially after I saw that only subscription based ones will receive full updates while those who opt for a full licence will only get the basic of updates and bug fixes… at least that’s how I understand it… oh and let’s not forget… they said there will be no CS7 so beyond this… everyone will now be forced pay rent regularly to Adobe to use their products. No thank you… As you can see, I’m the type of user who sticks with his purchased program and use it to it’s fullest and squeeze every single productivity out of it… I mean… it’s 2013 and I’m still using Adobe Photoshop 7 in my latest works…

Of course, I’m just a nobody to them… and I doubt Adobe guys will reverse this anytime soon so I better be prepared for the future. You see… my hobby is making OELVN’s (aka EVN or English Visual Novels) and an image processing tool is a must so I’ll be making contingency plans just in case Adobe went nuts and go full greed mode to satisfy it’s investors.

First thing I’ll do is to ensure that my originals are in a safe place inside a vault in my office. Next I’ll prepare 2 high end unit that is using Windows XP and install my legal copies of Adobe Products in there along with every programs and tools I use so when the time comes that I am no longer be able to use the new Adobe products in my current primary machine without being raped in the ass or if Windows beyond 8 becomes unusable and degraded into just another Smartphone OS I’ll still be able to continue to do what I love at my current pace.

Another thing I’ll do is to get used to using alternatives such as GIMP, SAI or Corel Products… It may take a while but at least I won’t get caught with my underwear down when Adobe finally decides to screw and extort everyone. I already started shifting from MS Office to Open Office and hopefully I one day get comfortable enough with them.

I sure wish someday Corel or some other company would make Adobe irrelevant just as how Adobe made Quark irrelevant back then. I know that my rant might be a bit irrational sometimes and I am very well aware that it is their product and they are free to chose what they do with it and they are a business and are out to get your money but you see Adobe is “THE” industry standard and any changes they make can and will have impact on everyone. As I have said before… I am a layman in all of this and probably missed a thing or two and this might be the reason why I am ranting right now but my point is… I am very loyal to the product I use and I’d rather pay in one lump sum and be able to use it anytime I wanted without worrying about monthly subscriptions and stuff like that. They say the subscription is cheaper then guess what… I’m still using Adobe Photoshop 7 with perpetual license and I’m very good at it and it’s definitely cheaper in the long run than me having to pay Adobe every month.

Insert Title Here – A scalable and recyclable OELVN (aka VN)

June 21, 2013

OHIO GO SAY MUST everyone… it is me UNCLE MUGEN… it’s been a while…

Allow me to introduce to you what Uncle Mugen has been cooking lately… Today, I present you the OELVN “INSERT TITLE HERE”… yes… I’m not kidding… that is the name of the OELVN (aka EVN or English Visual Novel)


Yes, that is the name of the game… not even joking…

It can trace its beginnings to the original Project Gakuen whose goal is to produce a recyclable and scalable generic school themed OELVN where you can insert any story you wanted but on a more grander scale (click here to learn more) … Fast forward a few months later… after doing a really thorough feasibility study… I found out that it was next to impossible to finish it in any reasonable amount of time with only me doing everything so I have scaled down the project from a large multi acre International School into a generic 300,000 sqm High School OELVN titled  “INSERT TITLE HERE”.

FREE BG’S FROM UNCLE MUGEN for use with your OELVN (aka VISUAL NOVEL) projects

May 19, 2013

free_bgsAnd now we come to the juicy part… I the handsome UNCLE MUGEN has been quietly developing and refining my Sketchup BG making techniques. My main objective is to reduce the steps down to five and make a tutorial so everyone can make their own BG’s without much effort… so far so good I managed to bring it down to a safe 8… still 3 steps more than my ideal goal but I’m still working on it.

Of course along the way we have to do things by trial and error and sometimes we end up with a few test BG’s that are byproduct of the experiments. Some of them are good enough to be used in a project and it would be a shame it I just discard them right?… So I quietly compiled them in a nice little thread that is being updated regularly where I post them backgrounds together with other resources like frameworks and sketchup models for everyone’s use.

Terms are pretty lax… anything goes FREE to use, modification is OK , even OK to be used in commercial projects… just say hi to me Uncle Mugen when used…
