Calaverablanca


www.geocities.com/calaverablanca


this is the address of a GF fansite
I am starting to make. I hope to have
most of it's shell built by next week.
(would appreciate any feed back)

Calaverablanca is a GF fansite
which also is going to slightly
parody film noir movies such as
Casablanca.
(which every GF member of this forum
should see, because you will appreciate
year 2 all the more for seeing it.)

also am looking for submissions
for this site. Grim Skins.(especially)
icq skins,
aol messenger,
yahoo messenger
icq sound schemes,
anything like that.
or any leads on where
to get skining tools.
I have skinamp so can make
winamp skins, and I can also
make an msn messenger skin,
but would like to the same
for the other instant chat
thingies.

any and all authors
of submissions will be
properly credited
for their work.

like I said,
please if you can go see
my site, and tell me what you think
but more importantly rent or buy
Casablanca.
You'll be very glad that you did.

thank you.
I have flowcharted everything out
first and done story boards
I never just paste and put a site up
spur of thought.
so the shell or form goes or comes
first then the content.
and since I unfortunately have way too
much time on my hands
I can upkeep my site nicely
once it is made.

like stated any and all ideas
or stuff you want to contribute
will be given serious thought.
and fully credited.
i don't mind helping hands.
once rest of site is up
you will have better idea
of what may or may not be good
for Calaverablanca.

Tell me what you want and I'll get it for you - sounds, pictures, anything. I'll even search the net for Casablanca stuff if you want. Just make sure you have a reliable email address.

some new pages went up tonight
by tomorrow should have finished
up to the main menu page.

(and it is kind of obvious,
but once main menu page is in
people who do not want to repeat
intro section should bookmark
menu page instead. Unless you like
going through the front room
and the lobby, and all those pages.)

having fun making it.
and it is nice that some have seen it.

anyway it is late off to bed
I have another busy day
of htmling tomorrow.

as of this post tonight I have reached the main menu page. when it is done aka tomorrow you will be able to bookmark it to avoid going over and over the introduction section unless you really like doing so. hey look at that word wrap does exist. Hmmm...
I still think I will
space things out however
being a bit spaced out myself.

evil public libraries, evil ISP



my ISP is down again,
and I am at my local public library.
I will not be posting much other than
this until I get back online.
just wanted to let people know
where I have gotten to.
For some of you NOT seeing my posts
will be a bit of a holiday.

The good thing about Not being online
is that I am getting lots of work done
on Calaverablanca so by the time
I next post, you will all see more
fansite noir stuff.

And the library is evil because
a) the glare on the monitors
make them almost impossible to read.
and
b) to discourage people from
visiting forums such as this one,
all the screens show black small type
on dark the GF2 background.
so reading any post is useless.
I am typing this basically in the dark
of a well lit room.

I will be back online
as soon as possible.
in the meantime
Hi! to Kaldaravera
and High! to Gendo.

and pleasant greetings to anyone else
who might actually miss my presence
Haunting the Forums.

You should join AOL, Darth. Their prices are reasonable and they're hardly ever down. And look - they let you keep the little piece of brain they took out... Hello in there! Hello! Who's that man over there...?

check out Astrology Fandago,
I am curious to know your sign?

(and thanks Gendo glad to be back)

spent a fruitless day
with wonky sound wav's.
tried to convert wav's
from GF into smaller mp3's
for easier download,
they sounded hopeless
NOT GOOD (so I mean BAD)
I am using win98's
soundrecorder utility,
when opening a file it says:

radio quality
pcm 22,050HZ
16bit, stereo

these files are fine for HD
but too big for upload/download
purposes; any help?

PM me, and be patient
being a pakled
I will need
a walkthrough for sure.
Only if you are able,
and patient.

my fan site would appreciate
this much need help & contribution.

The Good the Bad and the Ugly


The Good I learnt how to make
a walking avitar, my first one!!!!!
It is Celso staring in:
"Deadman Walking."


The bad, well not really bad,
I am ordering my screen saver
and registered version of Hypersnap
tomorrow, or today,
so soon I will have soul savers
for people on the forums who want
a GF screen saver.


and the Ugly, me thinks Geocities
has shut me out. I am sure I have been
banned from there; see metallus there
is still hope.
my fansite is larger than 10mb
which is all Geocities gives you.
In fact it is bigger than
a geocities pro site of 25mb
well...
I can't access my pages
or upload it says I have reached
a limit (theirs I suspect)
and they want me to contact them.
well I think Calaverablanca
just like CMOTD (discworld)
is going to have to set up shop
elsewhere. so I may be cyber nomadic
for a while unless someone knows
a good place I can get free hosting
and a lot of it.

anyway thanks goes out to Kjolen
for helping me learn how to make
a walking avitar.

Good news!
either geocities was down
or busy or I exceeded my
daily transfer rate (possible)
but I can access it again.

Bebop Bones
the music section
for now is done.
(need to work on mp3's)
next I will be taking on
year 1 of Snappy Patter
and year 1 of Skeleton Closets.

then onto soul savers
and deathtop themes
for year 1.

*and of course updating
astrology fandango,
and next months calendar for sept.*

"any comments on what you'ld
like to see sept's calendar being?
I think Brennis and the tube room
since sept is labor day."

also does anyone look at
their grim horoscopes?

yes, no, maybe?
do you like this,
hate it,
think it's dumb?
if it is not popular
then I will not waste time
or space doing it,
I thought it would be funny
that's all.

Chowchilla Bye for now.

Hey, can you make me an animated avatar? Maybe of Sanspoof (Memorial-wise) with a rider on back? (Sanspoof fave character btw, and who cares if I ain't seen him? He's cute).

The site's great. You done a music section out yet? Because I can get you lots and lots of GF music if you want.

And I haven't seen kuch of Casablanca, but as soon as I saw Year 2 I knew there was some noir referance.

I'm also working on my GF site, 'The Cat Track'. It will also hopefully have a forum, but I doubt it. It might be done soon, hopefully.

Keep up the good work on Calaverablanca!

Oh my dear, dully god! Not even past Year 1??? Where are you stuck? I'll tell you how to get out!

Oh, and Sanspoof is... or was... a cat in Maximino's Cat Track. But he was killed by a blimp (Very sad ), so they put up a memorial of him. A very tacky one, but a memorial none the less. Umm... but what do cats look like in the land of the dead? Ah, never mind. I just wish he would be seen somewhere. Maybe appear somehow in GF 2? I would like that. I really would...

I like to savour
my game playing
plus between life
getting in the way
ISP troubles
posting on the forum
and working loads on year one stuff
for calaverablanca
just have not had time.
is sanspoof that weird cat
in the case?
I could put his head
on a human body
he is too long to make
a good avi
he would be so small
and horizontal
you would not see him
if you like
I will make you
a walking upright sanspoof.

yeah, alright. I thought the rider would be a bad idea. Can you do a smaller version of him, standing upright? Like a plush toy, sorta? Maybe him clapping or summit? I dunno. I'm witing to lose this Purple Tentacle av.

Not To Big...the servers too small

hi, update
made my first soul saver,
it was too big geocities
only allows 5mb transfer,
so I revised and revised until I got it
under 5, but still won't take it
keeps timing out on me
(now is when I miss having high speed)
I will try again tonight,
but may have to make another smaller one,
sorry if some of you were waiting
If it is any consolation the soul saver
I made for my computer I like.

The Beat Goes On



FTP via geocities a nightmare,
but the beat goes on.
I am downloading or rather
uploading the music portion
of calaverablanca.
so far in the BeBop Bones portion
of my fan site,
the misc portion is complete
and year one
parts 4,5 and half of 3
is done.
still have year 1 parts 1,2
and half of 3 to do.
also have year 2 ready to be
FTP'ed as soon as I finish
year 1. then I will do
years 3 and 4.
but at 56k and through
geocities FTP program
it is nasty.
but I do this all for you.

BeBop Bones


BeBopBones the music portion
of my fan site is being completed
this week, by next saturday hopefully.
friends with high speed are going to
help upload the files quicker.
56k is so very slow.
but there are a lot of music tracks
to deal with to boot.
I had no idea the game had
so many lines of dialogue
and great music.
(I kind of knew but thinking it
and uploading it are two different
things all together.

anyway almost every single bit of
music from Grim Fandango is there
for the downloading of any GF fan
whom might want it.

just keep checking because if a file
you want is missing now it should be
there by next weekend.
