I Love the Rain…:-)

It’s Raining!!!!…and it’s Been a While….
yes yes…It’s been a while since I have updated this thing…a few weeks.

Been really busy on a couple projects, and getting back into the swing of things at Sony from vacation, being really sick, and waiting on our design team to solidify the content for EQ2 Expansion 5.

Looks like we have a handle on Expansion 5 now and I am in the R&D process for my current Zone. Unfortunately I cant talk about what it is at this point until an official press release down the road is made, but basically I seem to have found myself at the helm of the most important content in this Expansion…so that’s pretty exciting…and it’s a pretty adventurous outing to boot. lol…so stay tuned and I’ll hook you up with any information as I can divulge it.

outside of that, it was a pretty neat weekend though it went by way to fast…and it pretty much rained heavily throughout which is a little unusual for down here, but I will take it! I am from the Northwest where it rains all the time, and I do miss it…so it’s been nice.

Like I mentioned a few posts back, sometimes things don’t go as planned and I already had to make some revisions to my 2008 goals list. lol! That didn’t take long. Well I decided it was time to take the plunge into code, and am pretty much up to my eyeballs in Actionscript 3.0. I have a lot of work lined up if I can get a handle on it, so I hit it pretty hard these last couple weeks…and it’s coming along. I should have did this a long time ago…it’s pretty fun really.

I am still a little bit off from tackling my first game with it, but I am pretty confident ill be able to start producing things here very soon. A little bit of a step back in a way, but it will open up a lot of opportunities very soon…and that’s a great thing. I kind of already had a handle on some of it when I designed and built MichaelBacon.com, the last revision…but this is taking it a lot further…and I am pretty excited.

On another front, I am just about done with putting together my ProTools Rig. I found that I cant get a DIGI Link cable in town so I had to order one and that’s pretty much the hold up at the moment.

I have the Core Card in the Precision, the Digidesign Midi IO rack, the Digidesign 96io, PT 7.4 software…and I have an Digidesign Accel card in route as well as the Digidesign Pre (microphone preamp) which I should have by the end of the week.

Once the DigiLink is here though I can at least play with it…

So it looks like there had to be some refocusing on being a little more self sufficient on the Game Dev front…and i will be a little more aggressive with Audio projects in the near future. I actually may derail my film projects this year to get Reactor Records up and running…we’ll have to see how all this pans out.

  1. I can’t wait to see the first game!! You’re a triple threat– animation, programming, and the ultimate coolness of Michael Bacon. :)

  2. You are the uber-threat, man. Jesus – is there anything that you can’t do? If you suddenly start singing I am going to be pissed! LMAO!

    You rock.
