Re: The new KM episode is up!

I've only just discovered this new episode (and wow, did it come as a surprise to me!) I can't really do more than echo many of the previous comments. The appearance was slightly disappointing but considering the rush that's entirely forgivable. Once I accepted that I could look past the ropey CGI a...

That was a bit of a missed opportunity. I was looking forward to seeing Barry puncture a bit of Graystagg's pomposity.

Re: Should the eye shield have been ditched for season 8?

I thought the point of the Eyeshield was supposed to move gameplay along by not requiring the advisors to have to spend time guiding the dungeoneer out of the room when everything of interest in that room had been done. Now this point was completely missed when the Eyeshield was first introduced but...

Re: Re:SOMETHING STIRS

Its really dissapointing that Tim hasnt updated us on the situation. Ive been watching all the old episodes on youtube the last few days and it never ceases to amaze me how gr8 knightmare was and how gr8 a new form of knightmare could be. That's what really surprised me when I found episodes on You...

Re: The art of Knightmare

But do they have to be GIFs? Perhaps I've misunderstood; I thought this was about drawing some new ones (or perhaps the BBS can't handle PNG smilies?)

Re: The art of Knightmare

If they are PNGs then PNG's transparency features should sort that out. Make the edge pixels semi-transparent instead of anti-aliased to a specific colour, and they'll blend in with any background. The only possible issue is browser support. PNG feature support was definitely an issue a few years ag...

Re: The art of Knightmare

I've not tried drawing much on a computer for quite a while, but Knightmare-themed smilies sounds like fun, and I generally have more success with small numbers of pixels. Don't hold your breath, though. I'm notoriously bad at getting around to doing things.

Re:Series 6 and 7 Dwarf Tunnels

I agree, having a section with a real set added to Knightmare quite well. The only drawback was seen when one dungeoneer was startled by a noise of someone behind him - only it was the cameraman.

Re:Knightmare - New PC Game

Hi Jackal, I think your game is the cat's pyjamas - it's really well put together and it's both fun and challenging to play. I managed to win for the first time yesterday, and to complete the whole quest in one today. I have to say, that random choice of five doors in deepest level three with no cl...

Re:death question

I dimly recall seeing a clip or a photo of what looked like the someone in the production crew showing a dungeoneer what to do for what looked like a fall (the dungeoneer was standing on a blue box). It mades me wonder if "Sidestep to the left" was possibly not quite as bad as it looked.

Re:SOMETHING STIRS

I just want Tim to produce something that keeps the essence of the old knightmare but with a faster pace (series 3) and new graphics. I'm sure it would be an instant hit on TV. I'm not even sure about new graphics; the airbrush graphics of the first three series gave a strange, slightly unnerving o...

Re:Best/Worst Improvisers?

Mark Knight was great in that, as he was in everything he did in Knightmare.

Barry's (in)famous Season 7 quest managed to get Sylvester Hands in a spot of confusion, but that could probably have happened to any actor who'd run into Barry on form!

Re:Series 5 Episode 15 (Fri. 21st)

I can see why they got confused about how many floors they were going down, the windows are nearly as big as the doors and 7 down is a long way and certainly harder to count then the 1 down of other teams. I fully agree with you there. The Descender is something I was never sure about, whether some...

Eyeshield wrote: Perhaps this is why they hedged their bets in Series 4, just writing a list of "The Players", which was never very helpful for working out who played the door monsters!
Much to the relief of the actors concerned, no doubt. The door monsters really were a low point in Knightmare for me.

Re:Series 3 - Episode 11

Looking at it carefully, it does appear that the dungeoneer stumbles off the path and genuinely falls. That's a great pity in a way, because all too often on Knightmare a mistake is either punished with death (or leaves you having to trust to luck in the case of clue objects), or turns out to not re...
