Happy New Year

Hi peeps, fans, testers, crazies, chicks and perverts,

Just a quick message in advance, a happy new year to everyone! Thank you all for a great 2012, it was not possible without the relentless support from everyone. I am looking forward to 2013.

I'll be back in action after the 2nd.

I have seen a lot of emails and messages from people. I'll get to answering them once I'm back. Enjoy tonight!

cheers 'n' beers

Progress Report: bit by bit

While I'm taking a rest over here at the lake and planning stuff for 2013, two very heroic individuals are taking a look at Lali's Bits and coming up with some solutions for the prop-loading. We just want to make sure everything will run as smoothly as possible for customers. I also hope that we can find a good workflow to make any future releases a smoother undertaking than the way its been with Lali's Bits up until now (and allowing me promise shit I can actually live up to).

One of those heroes has already started testing and says he's having fun in the process... I'll leave it up to you to imagine what he means by 'fun' haha. So its looking good.

I don't wanna plan too much just yet but generally I hope to be able to release some more face morphs and textures or perhaps an entire V4 based 'Lali Type' figure (in other words, a normal girl with fat on all the right places). But first I need to do some commission work and then I'm going to barge straight into the production of the first "Lali Lite" comic. It will be a small $6-$8 comic with just a lot of fun. It will be in line with the story but no big events will happen in it... except for a big penis perhaps. And once that's out the door I'll carry on with the next big Lali Adventure called "First Times" where Lali makes the F.I.S shit their pants when a routine mission goes belly-up.

That's it for now!

Merry Fuckin Christmas :)


Despite the delays and INJ nonsense, I'm going to do my best to have a very fun Christmas. This year has been crazy amazing with all the support from fans. I'm very curious what 2013 will bring! One thing's for sure, it will start with you sodomizing Lali's Bits.

Cheers 'n beers

Discussions etc

Hi peeps,

no progress yet, but a big discussion here over at affect3D, if you're interested. Some test renders to be seen. People asking questions about what and how.

Even though I might be bitching and moaning a lot about &*#^*@ pz2 INJ files and that, Lali's Bits are still coming out. I made my promise... just don't know if it will be before xmas. 

In the meanwhile I'm thinking of offering someone a partnership so that I can continue with my plans to provide other morphs, FBMs and JCMs in future. I wanted to provide some new face morphs, extra pussy morphs, ass morphs, and an entire Lali Type figure, with future updates, etc... but this whole Lali Bits thing put me off the idea, unless I can get someone to do the pz2 programming for me, I'll give them a cut of the profit. I might already have someone...

Its interesting though, I made the Lali System for my comics and not for selling, under the impression that I wasn't making anything new or exciting... turns out I invented something quite unique (although  am seeing Genesis figures improving around me, check Zef0's work here, also South African!). Had I known this I would've taken a completely different approach!

I wonder how my helping hand is doing, I don't wanna bother him too much. I wonder if Lali Bits will make it for xmas.

Progress Report: Help and thunderstorms

Its amazing what humans are capable of withstanding. If its not the code that's stopping you from moving on, then its thunderstorms. But I am not complaining, thunderstorms in this part of Africa are simply amazing to see, so incredibly moody, heavy, boisterous, primordial...

Anyway, as for Lali's Bits, arrangements are being made to get the last parts sorted out with the help of others. Some people have kindly offered their help. Despite that, I really doubt that I'll make Christmas now, we haven't even started Beta-testing, but its for the better because I rather give you a solid product that gives you a lot of pleasure for years to come. 

I've posted the last issues on RDNA so if you know anyone or anything, be sure to drop a note. I could eventually figure out by googling my ass off how these things are solved (like I've done with all the other issues - and like I still try to do) but an experienced person could probably fly through these issues in under an hour.

Think positive! Whii

Left the INJ for tonight and now creating new figures and story lines for commissions and future comics. Oh that is just a LOT more fun! Expect renders!

Seriously I hope I can get Lali's Bits up and running by Christmas, I just never expected it to be such a bloody mission. I do have someone helping me but he's also very busy with other shit. I can code but usually there's enough information, software, and official documentation for me to learn complex stuff. I managed to write a whole form generation application in SQL Server without any prior knowledge of the system in two weeks. I taught myself C# and ended up #1 programmer in my surveying department in half a year. Not cuz I'm clever, no, Microsoft just has its work thoroughly documented! Praise be Bill fucking Gates. But Smith Micro? I filed a complaint with Smith Micro that they don't deserve to call their product "Pro", and I feel I am allowed to say that since I've worked in software engineering, hyper complex geotechnical software and all kinds of other shit in the last 7 years. I made a feature request too, an INJ creator! GRR

:D

They just keep coming and coming...

I thought I was nearly there but problems just keep on coming form under the nearest rock somewhere.

  1. tweak the INJ in such a way that it doesn't overwrite original groupings
  2. strip the bloody prop pp2 file of the geometry (first two attempts didn't work)
  3. rename the Master Parameters such that they still continue working...
Why Smith Micro, why???

Progress Report: just two more things :P

I'm being very quiet now... grr

Need to do two more things:

  1. find a way to set the deformers to zero.
  2. get a python script that loads a prop from the library
If anyone can help with the last one?

Apologies for not replying

I'm getting quite a bit of attention nowadays! I do read every single comment, message and whatnot, but sometimes forget to reply because I'm getting so absorbed in with this Lali Bits release. So please excuse me for that. 

Thanks for all you support, comments, help, attention, money, sexual offe... ehm... thanks :)

And off course, thanks for buying my comics :D yeay!!!

Progress Report: found it!!!

There's a good chance I might have found the solution to the problem we're having. 

Poser, in all its infinite wisdom, decided that FBMs first have to get loaded in bulk in an INJ, which results in that ALL morphs with a similar name get associated with the FBM. Now the original Lali System contains FBMs that have turned into PBMs, thus removing morphs from being influenced by that dial, but being used elsewhere. Yes the LS is so horrendously complex... it was the only way to deal with the crap that DAZ makes.

So we're trying to figure out a way to include (or exclude) this info from the INJ file... I fucking hope I can make Christmas now...

I am strongly thinking of making a C# application that sorts all of this crap out. Current Poser file editors are too limited, or too specialized, or just too weird to use effectively. I maintain that Smith Micro has a strange idea of what "Professional Software" is. Poser "PRO" opens doors, worlds even; its amazing what you can make with it... but it shoots itself in its own foot when it comes to preparing a product for sale... not very professional. Plus the memory-handling is just crap.

Progress Report: ????

Still trying to figure out a way to make an INJ out of it. I've got someone on it, hope I can get it quick cuz I still need to test it. Trying out several packages myself but without much success. The problem is the prop and the random noise in some of the morphs. Someshere, extra data is being added and I don't have a clue how or where?

In the meanwhile I'm also tidying up my Runtime and adding new stuff to it in preparation for future comics, yeah! Hope to be rendering soon again.

  • and another 50+ Vagina morphs for the prop itself.
Just discovered there might be a little issue with her tits. I altered my Lali map to have smaller aureolas because all the V4 maps have HUGE aureolas... now these ones seem a little too big at times so I'm going to have to add a strong aurola scale morphs in it.


Progress Report: Not too bad

After yesterday's epic battle with 9 zillion lines of pz2 code, I woke up to several emails and messages of hope (incl you Caramel :) ). Someone skilled in this area is now having a look at it. I hope he manages. Looking back at the renders from last night, not too bad. I just need to fix the following:
  • Random errors in the mesh.
  • Varying textures to fit other body maps out there.
  • Make a PDF explaining what's happening.
Make no mistake, the thing will work out of the box, but it will provide you with a range of options and I need to explain what and where to give you a vital head start. I tested it in Aiko for example, it works fine, but you do need to slide one dial bringing the vagina prop closer to the mesh.  That's all. I need to keep the system as versatile as possible.

I might have to come with an update INJ because with 20+ customers playing with it, I'll get PILES of questions.

Anyway check the renders below. Anal penetration!!! Whoo. Don't know why I'm excited about it cuz its really not my thing, but I've got a dial that sorts out some of the anal morphs and that is the result. Whoo!

This is thing thing about this system: there are enough morphs to get the thing you want. One dial might get some of it, but in combination, you'll probably get what you want. I'll try give some simple examples in the PDF.

Ok and then some tests on 3rd party V4 figures. Neela and Helena. Here you can see I need to make differing shades of textures for the vagina prop mats. 

Ok thats it for now. I hope we can get the INJ sorted out asap then we can test it.

SEX!

Progress Report: pure hell

So making your dolly all perfect and sexy is one thing, its just the beginning... making an INJ is like making the LEM Module for the Appollo 11! There is some software that makes an attempt, but its all bits and pieces. No-one seems to want the convenience of everything in one go. DAZ's Injection Magic was almost there but doesn't allow for props.

Despite everything, I almost managed to get an INJ file made. Until I discovered small oddities in the morphs and JCMs, and some of the prop morphs are entirely messed up. So random! Why didn't Smith Micro make a utility that makes INJ files? You'd expect more from a $500 application calling itself PRO...? I mean you've got the whole package to make a product, but nothing to export it for sale?

Luckily the original Lali's Bits are safe and sound. But I'm afraid I'm going to have to outsource this to someone that knows more about the hell called pz2. Any tips anyone?

Off to bed now

The Route review on Affect3D

Whooo, our heroes at Affect3D have reviewed my latest comic "The Route". Check it out here.

Very big thank you to Supro and the Affect3D team. Despite the persisting and unavoidable dichotomy of Lali's likeability, his criticisms were very useful and will certainly help me fine tune future comics. His observations of Lali's character were accurate and hopefully it will work out for the surprises to come.

whiii
