  1. If you want to use Templar's assets, you can rip them from the .swf files for MNOG and the online animations using a decompiler — I've used the JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler in the past, and it works pretty well (I think this is the same program Peri uses). Once you've got the assets you want, you can use Adobe Animate to animate whatever you want.
  2. Hey B/S/T! As I'm sure many of you are aware, I've been working on a BIONICLE media archiving project, Wall of History, for almost a year now. As part of my continuing quest to make the BIONICLE story as accessible as possible, I'd like to start adding non-English story media to the site, as well as make some other minor additions. To that end, I'm now interested in buying any and all non-English story media, as well as any promotional CDs (of any language). I already have the German edition of the first two BIONICLE comics, as well as the 2001 interactive demo CD, the Tanhok-Kal and Lehvak-Kal CDs, and the Guurahk CD. Any other non-English story media or promotional CD (of any language) is fair game, so if you've got something you'd be willing to sell, let me know!
  3. I don't know a lot about All Insane Kids, other than the fact that their actual name was "Dial Zero" (for some reason, they used a fake name when writing songs for BIONICLE). You can find high-quality MP3s of their BIONICLE songs on the BioMedia Project.
  4. Those of you who know your BIONICLE history might recall that the original BIONICLE Legends #7 — Invasion — was cancelled in 2007. Well, thanks to some detective work by yours truly, and some help from BZPower's own Black Six, the introduction of Invasion has been recovered, and is now available to the public for the first time ever! You can be among the first fans to read it by clicking here. I'm starting this thread for two reasons: for discussion of the recovered Invasion introduction, and for discussion of lost BIONICLE media in general. BIONICLE was a massive story, and I highly doubt this one chapter of one book is all that's almost been lost to the sands of time — and now that I'm in detective mode, I'd love some more leads to follow. :p
  5. Thanks! I'm really glad you're liking it. I'll fix that error in Onua's chapter when I get home tonight. Thanks for pointing that out. As for the style guide excerpts, yes, that's intentional. Only the excerpts that contain original content are woven into the narrative. I figured three different versions of the Toa's battle with Makuta, for example, would be a bit much. Many of the missing ones are on the website, though, and can be found here (the rest are gonna be added soon).
  6. Wow, I can't believe I never thought to check the news archives... I've actually been wanting to put release dates on everything on Wall of History, so... that'll be helpful! Thanks!
  7. Thank you! I really appreciate all the effort. I'm still pretty swamped with homework at the moment, but I should be able to go over your Doc within the next couple of days. This will definitely be a big help! I'll be sure to consult your timeline and your notes when working on the new ordering. Also, where did you find the release dates for the serial chapters? As far as I'm aware, the BMP mirror of the 2010 BIONICLEstory.com is the only place they're hosted in their original form, and it doesn't appear to have release dates for anything...
  8. Rearranging everything to make that work will probably take a bit, but I have gotten several comments about this, so I'll get to working on it. Yeah, the other person said they should go after the Morbuzakh arc as well... I'll probably put them somewhere around the end of The Darkness Below and the beginning of Legends of Metru Nui. That's probably the best place for them. I'll make that change next time I update the website. Hm... Moving them all to the end might actually work really well, since I've got all of The Mutran Chronicles at the beginning of the Phantoka chapter... Two different Makuta diaries bookending the Karda Nui arc... Alright, I'll work on rearranging Makuta's Diary for the next update.
  9. Thanks! Could you explain why? Making that change would necessitate moving Triumph of the Toa (and, by extension, the other two comics) to much earlier in the chapter, or moving the Ga-Koro chapter of MNOG (and, by extension, the rest of MNOG) to much later — and I feel like both of these options would mess with the overall flow a lot. Someone else gave me the same suggestion, and I'm planning on moving them — I just haven't decided where they should go yet. Yeah, I'm not really fond of where they are either... The thing is, though, they kinda contradict the rest of the canon wherever they go — they both clearly take place during the events of Legends of Metru Nui, but there isn't really a perfect place where they fit into that story. If you have any suggestions for where they should go, let me know. The chapter divisions on Wall of History are the same ones that were on BIONICLEstory.com. I think dividing the 2008 story into three chapters is a little strange as well, but it's the only official way the story was ever divided, so it's what I'm going with. I wouldn't say it spoils it, per se — no more than Legacy of Evil or Dwellers in Darkness did. I put that first diary entry where it is because I think it serves as some nice, ominous foreshadowing there. If there's a consensus that it should definitely be moved, though, I'll do it. I initially put it where it is because I felt it was a nice segue into the Bara Magna chapter, but I'm not too attached to its position there. I'll move it a few spaces earlier in the next update.
  10. WALL OF HISTORY Hey BZPower! Many of you are probably familiar with Wall of History, the web archive of the BIONICLE story I launched earlier this year (which is linked to above). While the BZPower forums were down, Wall of History received a significant update, and given that my original discussion thread rolled over the revival limit during that downtime, I thought it'd be a good idea to start a new one. Here's an overview of the changes made in the Big Update: The site received a visual upgrade — all the pages now use the light-on-dark color scheme that was previously exclusive to the Legends of Metru Nui and Web of Shadows chapters, and the headers have been tweaked. Virtually all remaining story media — most notably, all the remaining novels, short stories, and story serials — was added to the site. (There are still a few miscellaneous things I'm planning on adding, like the rest of those little McDonald's comics, but basically the entire story is available now). Animations have finally been added! The MNOG pages now have the relevant cutscenes (at their original 18 FPS, thanks to the wonderful Peri), the (BIONICLE.com) Wall of History pages have their animations (also at the correct frame rate), and the Vahki animations and The Search for the Mask of Light are available. The map has been improved, and now has two companion pages — a sources page, where you can sort media by type (comic, novel, serial, etc.), and a search page, where you can search the contents of the archive. We now have an events page. Join our book club. We have giveaways, and we do movie streams sometimes. I'm also now working on adding all the BIONICLE guides to the site, which you may have already noticed if you visited the sources page linked above. (This was not part of the Big Update, but also happened while the forums were down.) I started working on the guides pretty recently, so the only one we've got at the moment is Metru Nui • City of Legends. I think that about covers everything that's happened with Wall of History since June. I'd really appreciate any feedback y'all might have!
  11. I don't know if "gonna try my absolute best to make it to BrickFair, but it's still up in the air" qualifies me to vote, but if so, my vote goes to #3.
  12. Glad you think it'd be fun! I think it would be too, and since most people I've talked to feel the same way, it'll most likely happen. Keep checking back here over the next few weeks for more information, or follow Wall of History's Twitter account!
  13. I've actually already found copies of those two! Sorry about that, I should've updated the list sooner. Thanks for offering, though! If you have anything else on the list that hasn't been struck through yet, let me know.
  14. Glad you like the idea! The books are really great, and I think giving new fans a chance to enjoy them and talk about them would be great for the community.
