Well here’s the latest FM episode after a lot of delays. This one has several bugs that I basically just ignored. There are missing bloodstains, the barnacle problem is back, and one of the signs wasn’t glowing like it’s supposed to. One viewer has told me it’s not even possible to finish HL Source without cheating because of a bug, I guess I’ll find out.
This is going to be the LAST video release before the new website, we’re getting really close now, I hope to have something semi-functional in about a week on that front. After that focus will be on the next CP episode, but I may do another FM first just to make up for the delay on this one.
Well judging from the comments, people really want an update, so here’s what happeneing. Steady progress is being made on the next Civil Protection episode, but there’s still a ways to go. I’ll get started on a new Freeman’s Mind episode soon to try and make up for the delay. I lost a couple days to doing some additional contact work, but that’s done now, so I’ll back to work on everything else. Progress on the website is going very well and I think it will be done quite soon. My plans are to get it up before the next video is released. Finally, some initial work has been started on a “pilot episode” for something new I want to try. Without spoiling anything, it will be in the Source engine, but will not be Half-Life related. You’ll definitely see the next CP and FM episodes out before this however.

Well here’s the latest episode of Freeman’s Mind. I got lucky with this one and demo recording worked without the barnacles going crazy. This is good because I was able to swap out some lines for the scientist at the end, something that wouldn’t have been practical with just raw video recording. The barnacle problem is NOT SOLVED however, I simply got lucky with this map. My offer of getting in the credits for anyone who can solve the problem is ongoing. Also, the cattle prod story mentioned in this episode is not even an exaggeration, I knew someone who used to do that.
I plan to go back and focus on the next CP episode for now, but if the rest of production ends up taking a long time, I’ll get another FM episode out to tide you over. Hopefully the new website will be finished before either one is done!
I know people who come here like updates, so here’s a post on what’s happening. Unfortunately I’m behind in pretty much all areas, probably because I’m focusing on several different things. I’ve gotten some additional help with the new website, which I think is helping things move along faster.
The next CP episode is growing more elaborate than I originally intended, which is adding to the production time, but I think it’s going to make the episode that much better. Unlike the last one, which was meant to be different, I think this next one will have something for anybody who’s a fan of the series. Once it’s done, then work will resume on “The Tunnel”.
Finally while I’d prefer to focus on CP, I know a lot of you like Freeman’s Mind, so I’ll do my best to have another episode of that out sometime next week (assuming I don’t run into more problems).
Freeman’s Mind is looking closer to Friday or this weekend because all the shouting retakes wears my voice down some and there are only certain times I can record. The good news is it will be a longer episode.
