Seeking fan opinions on dios/fanfics

Postby RevSears on Sun Feb 22, 2009 6:36 am

So do you guys read them? Just asking. I thought i'd ask about an idea on here, rather than a bigger forum in case i don't go through with it.
I really like to write, i've written plenty of stuff but i don't really go anywhere with it, it's more for my personal enjoyment. I have tried to do a dio before (twice before actually, the first time ending so very quickly it's barely worth mentioning) I got through 3 or 4 chapters the first time, then just kinda trialed off. It's a lot of work. I personally admit i pretty much don't read fanfics. But Darko's customs have really changed that. I've read a few here and there, but darko's customs bios are so long they are almost fanfics and I really enjoy the universe he has set up with them. So my question is what do you guys think of doing a mostly fanfic but with some pics splashed through it for those of us with Add?

I have the story down tight, and i think it would allow me to use my writing "talents" for something fun that people might read. Mainly i'm thinking my take on a Joe "movie." I might attach a brief sample tomorrow... err today (did i mention i can't sleep cause i've had 4 mountain dews today?) if i finish up a scene i was writing as kind of a personal test.

I also dream of an audio fan fic but i think that's just out of reach right now.

ALRIGHTY! i think i have my fix. Rpgmaker XP. With some time rather than making a dio which involves some huge scenery work, or writing a fanfic which some may not read, how about a fanfic you can PLAY! it will take some work , no doubt, but just programming, and imaging editing work.

Anyone want to help? i'd love for this to mostly be a surprise and then spring on some of the major joe boards.

I used to play a ton with RPG maker. Great fun. As I remember, there ARE some GI Joe sprites/monster sets out there.
I support the separation of Church and Hate.

thanks for the encouragement darko, now i'll keep looking. I found some that could work for monsters and some that would be easy to edit. Maybe i can be lazier!

I've done some work on this, it's coming a long better than a dio would. I've got a lot of system work done, and several maps made. I've learned a lot about scripting cut scenes etc.

I have not however been able to find many joe sprites or monsters. I found one page (In porteguesse no less) with Se on it but it was designed for the older rpgmakers and isn't compatible with the new one.

Crashed is such a vague description. What exactly happened and why is all your information lost?

The computer I was using Got shipped up here and damaged during it's journey up here. It worked for about a week and simply stopped turning on (but i did try to switch power supplies, it was more than that). I've tried pull stuff out of the hard drive using an external harddrive case and trying to dual hard drive. It's like there isn't a hard drive there at all :( a friend of mine in KY has it now, i shipped it to him. I'm hoping he can pull stuff of it but i think it just got wiped somehow.

Did any of the lights come on? Any noises?

It may have been dropped...
Look! An old man pulling a box of junk...

It's finally been fixed! wee! i ended up recovering everything but I'm not sure if I am going to continue pursing the rpgmaker version. I may just go back to trying to write the fanfic... ever so slowly.
