Website Updates and News
 Some stuff... and more stuff...
Posted by Kuro-chan - August 16th, 2009
The Star Trek Online set has been posted. To make room for the growing difference between "Black Background" sets and "With Alpha Channels" sets, I split up the Trek page.

A couple little changes here and there to the site as well. A few things got toyed with in the Links section, for instance.

An additional note: THANK YOU to Cris Carter of the 3rd Fleet for donating to Kuro-RPG in anticipation for the STO rankset. Thank you!

 17 minutes to spare... until midnight.

A small set I never expected to be completed was just finished. The rankset to the "Star Trek 11" movie is up and on Kuro-RPG. Now bear in mind I have not watched the movie, so I refuse to guarantee any sort of accuracy whatsoever. I had to go with whatever few screencaps I could find.

Now... it's bedtime for me. Night night.

The largest... *pant* ...longest... *pant* ...biggest use of my available webspace... *pant* ...exceeding all else by 1000 images... IS UP! Alternate Style #1 Revised is finished and available for download. I put up 2 zips for it, a basic set which has the red, yellow and teal collars, and the complete set which has all 26 colours... and exceeds over 30MB in size. ...And before you ask, Yes those 26 colours WERE requested...

 And this title says too!

The Alternate Style #1 Remake is progressing along smoothly. With all my DS9-era ranks revised and remade, I started working on the backgrounds. A small sample was posted on the forum for those who have an account and would like to take a look.

I found something while doing a little more Claymore emblem research. I found a non-canon (doujinshi / fan comic) suggestion for Luciela's emblem and applied it to the set I made. So it ended up with 3 more ranks (1 for each color).

A hearty thank you to "Emperor" from Metroid Headquarters for your donation. For those who do not know, I spent a good couple weeks working on a set for their forum, creating a series of small, medium and large video game sprites to be used in their rank buttons.

 Yeah, what the title says!

There is a project on the go... And with the pips I have done up so far, it is turning to be rather large. If anyone has noticed on the forums, multiple members have joined together to push me into making a new Alternate Style #1 that uses a new background, new pips and alpha channels so they will work with any color background, not just black. So far, all the navy pips are complete, which leaves the marine pips and the background designs. It IS progressing though!

Also, thank you to forum Admin. Heyallo for the additional "push" via donation to get this project done! He helped me get out of my rut!

 More Donations = Happier Kuro

Thank you AGAIN to Stefan Nikolaus for a second donation to Kuro-RPG. Stefan, this also puts you in the "Top Ten" Donators. Congratulations!

A couple changes were made to the forum as well. We put up strict rules concerning "Advertisements" in the forum that do not belong in other sections, like Gaming, or Community, or talking about Ranksets, etc. As a result as well, I promoted my three active Global Mods and made them all into Administrators. Congratulations to Trekkieandrea, Heyallo and Twan. Enjoy your newfound power while you secretly plot to overthrow me. (Twan blew your cover already. Sorry, Guys. )

 First set in 5 Months

It is probably not what you had in mind, but I had to make sure I could do "something" before I worried about any heavier projects. I wanted to make sure I am still "in the game" when it came to making ranksets, since this is not really my graphics fort?.

The new feature rankset is the "Claymore" set, based off a LOT of research from both the manga and anime series. Lot of emblems are posted!

 My other project just died...
Posted by Kuro-chan - July 19th, 2009
Yester-Term, a show I had been running for nearly 2 years, just died this weekend. Courtesy of administrative issues from the group I was doing the project under, Yester-Term is now a cancelled project.

There was an archive site I had been working on to keep records of what happened over the last 6 terms (1 term = 4 months). It can be found Here. So, please excuse me if I am not in the best of mood on the forum or MSN for the next couple weeks. This was something I was put a great deal of effort into making possible, and in return it was nearly 2 years of grief and frustration.

 I got some positive influence!

It makes for a nice change of pace.

Thank you to Stefan Nikolaus for the generous donation to Kuro-RPG. That has certainly gone a ways to lighten my mood and encourage me to do some more work on the site. Many thank-yous.

 I still live.

I have not disappeared or anything... I just don't know what to do in regards with myself, my life, Kuro-RPG, etc. With that way both my jobs have been treating me the last couple months, the more important one as of recently, it's pushed me to new levels of depression. If I end up going to meds, I think I'll send them the bill this time around.

I have heard a few rumors float around that I plan to take down the site. Unless I end up with another "We all hate Kuro-fest" like I saw last year, I doubt that will happen anytime soon. Kuro-RPG is here to stay.
