Re: The new KM episode is up!

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. They can't get from one row of letter tiles to another without first jumping onto the platform that the axes swing over, which is when they're in danger of getting hit. (Have you seen the KMVR pilot?) Ah! I watched that KMVR episode a bunch of times whe...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

Don't the axes swing between the rows of tiles, meaning that the only time they could be hit by them is while they're in the process of crossing? I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. They can't get from one row of letter tiles to another without first jumping onto the platform that the axe...

Re: Series 9 Cameos

When I look at the Geek Week episode, it appears that the rooms are in full 3D even though they retain the classic Rowe-painting style quite nicely. This means the show should be able to afford camera angles that simply weren't possible in the past because of the 2D nature of the room artwork. Going...

Re: Online episodes

I didn't consider an internet only KM when I wrote my 'revisited' article but I'm not sure the market/technology is mature enough to support it. That said, KM was always at the cutting edge... Knightmare being on the cutting edge back in the day is a well established fact, yet I don't see it as bei...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

While the blades are scary and dangerous looking, they're purely psychological if used at the speed they were in the Geek Week episode. On Level 3 they would be made to swing much more frequently, but considering they only ever swing over the gap between the tile rows the dungeoneer is never in dan...

Re: Online episodes

Yes I think it Knightmare could work online. Like Alan said you would need a lot of paying subscribers but I believe the audience is there. Of course I would prefer to see Knightmare on TV where it belongs but the online option would be the next best thing. I don't believe the audience is there... ...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

Have to say, SMDM does seem to be a puzzle that belongs on level 3. Too difficult for level 2. Having said that, if the scene were moved to level 3, what Treguard says after the fall would stop making any sense. I think it varies really. SMDM gets it's difficulty from two separate and distinct fact...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

I honestly cannot wait for that, thank you so much Tim. Apologies for my ignorance if this has already been explained, but was there any reasons offered for the sound effects revap, ie. Door entering, goblin horn, spell casting, opening theme, life force, atmospheric background ensembles? Was it bu...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

It’s not a director’s cut. Much simpler explanation. The main purpose of the re cut is to produce an effective selling pilot for a new broadcast vehicle I actually got my son in to look at that, just to make sure I wasn't misreading it in a mad rush of over-optimism! It took me a couple of reads as...

Website -> Forum -> Website

Having only recently joined the forum, I've only now started to encounter a problem where I can't find any way to return to the main site from within the forum itself. There's a lovely drop-down menu which appears to link to the various website sections, but I can't find a "Go" button to go along wi...

Re: DungeonMaster Ltd

Tim's statement about not coming out of retirement doesn't really stack up with the following from his Wikipedia entry: He is currently Managing Director of DungeonMaster Ltd, and is active in producing for the Internet and the advancement of linguistic artificial intellience in drama applications....

Re: The new KM episode is up!

It’s not a director’s cut. Much simpler explanation. Google YouTube didn’t want anything longer than 25 minutes. That was quite hard (well very actually) to do without the sort of butchery which would have made a complete nonsense of the sub plots and storylines. As it is they took a bit of savagin...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

Do you mean more was filmed before the team died and cut out? Or they filmed more afterwards? Both I'm aware that Tim Child recently informed us that we'd eventually get a more extensive video containing the content that was cut from the episode. I wonder if this was always the plan, or whether the...

Re: Reward

hehehe The sequence is reversed because it's the countdown to Knightmare coming back to life. That is, it's Knightmare regenerating. That was the idea. As simple as that? I don't know how that idea completely went completely over my head, but it did. I've been hanging around Doctor Who forums for t...

Re: Reward

I have a feeling the sequence is reversed as a precaution so that it's a little less tempting for a fan to steal the sequence for use in a fan-game, video or elsewhere - after all, it's the whole sequence in high quality, on a black background that could easily be set as a transparent mask. In regar...
