If anyone remembers that old game I used to work on called Uniques United...well, it's being made into a professionally-animated cartoon. Apr 23, 2019

      Question: I have 400 Sound Effects sitting in a folder on my PC that would make an excellent RPG package. If I put it up for sale, how much would you feel is reasonable?

        I already have previews on Soundcloud, with every item present. This is so people know what they're getting in advance.


        As for not getting back much for the time I spent on it, this literally can't do me any harm.

        Ooh. I'll have to check that out if you do compile a pack to sell.

        I think $20 would be a very popular price.

      The butcher's shop where I live is closing down in September. The guy's getting old and he can't keep up with things anymore. The sad thing is that butcher is the last place I remember from my childhood that's still open...

      Staying positive in today's world is like fighting cancer - the struggle is continuous, the outcome is uncertain, and it feels as if a sinister force is moving to gain power over you. Don't give in to depression, it takes no prisoners.

      So now I'm stuck with a dillema - In order to finish my game, I need money. In order to have money, I need some way to earn it. Because sound design went south, I have little else to offer as a service. So unless I win the lottery, the game will likely be on hold indefinitely.

        If you were to spend 2 years working on someone else's game and he put it on Steam, earning all the profits while you never got anything for all that time you put in, would that be a good reason to compensate your team?

        Did you know he was going to sell the game? Then you should have asked for compensation for the work you did, as you were doing the work.

      My problem used to be eating too many meals a day, but now I'm concerned it's the other way around. I had 1 meal today and 1 meal yesterday, and by the time I realize I haven't eaten, it's already late at night. I did lose 7lb though this week. :)

        Eh. I'm not too different. I eat maybe one big meal either at the start or end of the day, and then snack on chips, bread, or whatever throughout. I don't see anything wrong with it as long as you're not neglecting hunger or something.

        also be carefull of Large TB drives, the bigger they are the less impact they can take and break way more often.

        The good news is that if the drive itself is okay (but the power supply or something isn't) you can usually fit the drive inside a desktop pc if that's what you're using :)

      How well do these spell sounds go together, in terms of intensity?
      1. Kes
        Kes
        First 2 go very well together, the 3rd starts with such a different type of sound it doesn't sound like it's a progression, but something else entirely.
        Jul 16, 2015
      2. Scythuz
        Scythuz
        I'd add a bit more intensity to the second one and possibly increase the volume of the tail ends so that they flow more seamlessly. But, make sure they still sound separate enough for it to be dramatic.

      I am no longer taking commissions and no longer doing sound effects as a profession. I have burned out completely and am in no condition to be of service to anyone. All clients will be refunded as soon as possible. It saddens me to have to do this, but I must. Sorry everyone... :(

        I took a look, and having a top tier reward as "If you want to hire me or make a business proposition, I will give you my Skype" is a bit redundant as they are already supporting your efforts and getting all your packs at that point. You also are making it look like giving 50+ is the only way to qualify a person to be able to hire you directly for something.
