2 Weeks!

Hello, Guys!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in two weeks but I’ve been very busy. Forgetting the busy part of my revious sentence, I think you’re fully entitled to some rich graphics, App reviews and an overall, nice, good, old, long post. Forget ‘old’. (silence for a few seconds)

So, as you know, I’m reasonably into Club Penguin, on and off, and, as you also know, I’m really into Twitter now. I was hanging around Twitter a while back and I noticed there was a guy with an embarrassingly bad Twitter profile picture (have you seen my new Gravatar?) so I sent him a tweet. He then asked me if I would make him a Club Penguin cheat site banner for his website. I said yes and guess what I did?

I made one:

Yes it is an animated .GIF! I love them. You can get some really bad ones which, I know, just make you cringe badly, but when I use .GIF animation (BTW I do hate to boast) I think you usually get pretty good results! It was supposed to be a Christmas banner so that’s the reason for the tree in background. WOOT! Christmas! Oh, boy, do I love Christmas! However we mustn’t forget the true meaning of Christmas! No, especially if your not even religious! I find it so annoying and heartbreaking to see little children spending their entire Christmas sitting on a hard wooden bench all day listening to some under enthusiastic life-less guy talk about some think they probably don’t even understand! BTW I’m talking about little children that should be opening presents and playing with their mates in the snow instead of sitting in a cold church all day. I can get a little off track some times so I better focus back on the post. Yes. Focus.

You in need of some more graphics, huh? I won’t disappoint you:

I was experimenting with Photoshop CS5 when I was in a bad mood but now I look back it wasn’t actually that bad so I though I’d upload it! More:

A cool Dapizz button logo using a new font I’ll mention later! NEXT!

This was actually something I made quite a while ago but never remembered to upload or post! Now I see it again I really like it! (what can I say that isn’t NEXT or More?):

A nice new idea for a wallpaper, huh? I made a while ago too and never ot round to putting online so here it is. I’m making it my  wallpaper as soon as this post’s done! Moving on:

I know it’s not much to your interest but I made it and like it, it was my friend, Stralis33’s, idea and it’s his Club Penguin cheat site’s official logo!

As I said earlier, I will now give some thick, gloopy, App review. I don’t have a clue why an App review is in any way gloopy, but I think it sounds nice. I like gloop. Gloopy gloop. I’m going off track again. Focus. Apps.

Ok, one of the best Apps I’ve downloaded in the past month has to be Stick Wars. This is the very popular game that you also find on the Internet, where you have to defend, repair, and protect a wall of your castle. Loads of stick men (or bunnies if you download the ‘Bunny Hoard’ extra) are running at your wall with their fists, spears, pole, ramming carts, catapults, etc. You use repair men, archers, magicians, and your loyal, old finger to flick, blast, bomb and stab the attackers. There’s multiple levels to the game, obviously getting harder and harder. As well as the stick figures attacking your wall they’ve employed dragons and evil, giant stick figures to help them. You gain money with which you can buy prisons, magician schools, repair shops, archery training centres and loads more. With the prison you can pick up little stick men and drop them in your cage. After a few seconds they’re are ‘captured’ and your prison becomes free again for another person. With these ‘prisoners’ you can sent out people with bombs (suicide bombers basically) and groups of 3 with shields and spears. These people can also be trained to be archers, magicians and repair men. This App is FREE to celebrate the launch of Sick Wars 2 but it may be paid again by now. It should be in the Top 25 FREE Apps in the App Store. Have a look!

Secondly, I want to seriously recommend Trinity Interactive’s, 9 in 1, Action Heroes. It’s a series game where an App producer gets a load of their games together (9 in this case) and put them all in to on App to celebrate the end of the series. Like all Trinity Interactive games, this App takes a few years to load up, but when it’s loaded, it’s truly awesome! Trinity Interactive have put a little description together as well for each game. Here they are:

  • Jailbreaker (as I mentioned in my firs App recommendation post ever) : Jump and slide your way to freedom!
  • Hot Pursuit: Get ready for road rage!
  • Climber: Latch on and escape the ruins below!
  • Tomb Evader: Escape from the top of a collapsing pyramid!
  • Hell Flyer: Grab hold while you still can!
  • iKungfu Master: Increase your strength and defeat your enemies!
  • Hired Gun: Bring a steady hand and snipe the baddies!
  • Iron Commando: Drive back the alien invaders and their control ships!
  • Star Marine: Blast away the alien hordes!

Yes, all them need an exclamation mark after the description, according to the game.

I’m afraid that’s all the App recommending I can really do today so I’ll move on.

Fonts. I love them. You get fat ones, thin ones, italic ones, famous ones, and many more. They’re also so easy to download off of the Internet and a little extracting and moving about and, viola, you have a new typeface installed! Well, as mentioned earlier, I have a cool font to let you at today! Yes, a really cool font called Burbank which is used a lot on Club Penguin. In fact, it’s used everywhere. If you want a preview of it look at the shiny DP button above. I’ve lately started using it for practically everything, It just looks so good! Oh, BTW I also used it in the animated banner above! Click HERE to download it as a .ZIP. Oh, and just to let you know you need to use Burbank Big Wide on the black setting. Black means not normal, italic, bold, or bold italic, but black, extra bold, basically.

That’s pretty much it from me, so I guess I should say bye.

Isn’t that what your supposed to write? Bye.

Yes, I’ll go for that.

Bye! Dapizz – 😀

Cripes!

Hiya, People,

I’m really amazed today because I’ve just had a little look at our stats for this website and I’ve been literally gob-smacked! The results are both incredibly low and high (for different times, I have’t lost my marbles!)! Here’s a few numbers to look over and be amazed at:

  1. To start with I can tell you that the post two days ago with over 120 tags did get me exactly 70 hits! Isn’t that kind of strange yet unbelievably cool at the same time. I mean, the guess of 70 I put in the last post, I think, was, as I said, a totally random guess at a bit more than 58 (I saw it at 58 hits about an hour before).
  2. Secondly the monthly hit counter is quite amazing.
  • In June 2010 I collected a whopping…8 hits. How utterly crap!
  • More impressive was September 2010 with 394 hits. Space for improvement…
  • And this month, October, well it’s been great. This is only the 18th day of this month, about halfway, so we’ve got a load of head start to beat last month! C’mon guys!

Also today I have a load of really cool graphics things, perfect for iTouch wallpapers, mainly because they were created on an iPod Touch! Here they are:

Pretty awesome, huh. How your sitting there thinking how the f*** did he do that on an iPod without doing it pixel by ixel in a very advanced non-existant photo editing App. Well, I can tell you, I didn’t. Big surprise there! To make them I used an App called Meritum Paint. More info…

At the moment, Meritum Paint has to be my highest rated App on the entire store. It’s so easy to use and the iPad version must be a hell of an experience! OOHH…an iPad… Concentrate! As I was saying…UURR…Yeah…Well, that’s how I created these awesome images. What you do is drag your finger or toe or nose or whatever across the screen and you get loads of strange wisps come out of you into your devise! It’s incredible! You can have 3 settings to draw in too. There’s Normal where the strand things are just sharp, solid colour, then you have Neon, the setting I drew these pictures in and last and very much least we have Sci-Fi which is rubbish and not worth talking about! That’s basically it, go download it. It’s FREE!

Whilst I’m on the subject of Apps though I will tell you about another really cool App! It’s called Soosiz and its really cool. Here’s a picture:

Search it in the App store if you want more information but basically you walk and jump around loads of planets (from one to another) and let little people follow you (you’re supposedly saving them) and you finnish the level after defeating a few enemies and stuff. In the full version there’s loads of worlds and even bosses (big spiky balls) but you obviously have to pay for it (I got it for FREE because it was on the FreeAppADay scheme thingy.

Anyway, that’s all for today so bye.

MOO!

 


*Sob*

Oh, Hi,

I’m crying because my loyal Line Rider page that I created all my runs on has just redesigned it’s webpage layout and has possibly rebooted the server. Basically, I have lost all of my runs I have made. That’s hours and hours of line drawing all down the drain. I am so bloody pissed off! I do know that technically the files or whatever are actually stored on my computer but I don’t know how to find them. I have searched OS (C:) on my computer a couple of times with a few different searches but of course it takes ages and comes up with loads of crap you didn’t even know was on your hard-drive! I’m probably going to have another look soon to ease my furious temper; hopefully being successful! :/ Does any one out there have any idea how I can retrieve my files? Please say if you do. I like comments. I like them a lot! Heehee! 😀 LOL. I’ve got totally sidetracked!

Have you seen my new Twitter and YouTube banners? They should be down a bit and left from here. I created them all on my own! I surprisingly used Microsoft Word; for the shiny effect, Paint; to rounded crop the result from Word and lastly, Adobe Photoshop CS! It’s kind of obvious what for; all the words, the logos, the picture in the Twitter one, the watermark like thing and overall rasterizing, cropping and saving as a .PNG. I only ever use .PNG and .PSD! You see, .GIF and most .BMPs make the gradient look weird and wrong looking (but still cool), .JPEG and .JPG, well that’s just a total disgrace to photography editing and graphics design and pretty much all the others use huge amounts of memory or CPU to actually use. Here is a screen-shot of all the extensions and names of photo saving formats Photoshop CS supports. It’s incredible!

Crazy! What the hell is ‘Pixar’ or ‘Scitex’? Is it a special type of format that only Disney Pixar are permitted to use? HaHa! Anyway I have to go now! Get me more hits! 🙂
