nah, we should have that knightmare convention we keep on threatening and have a 24/7 screening there ;D

i personally would rather have a download. i've used soulseek to share files before and have found that useful for spreading music, resuming downloads and queueing things that are offline if webspace is an issue for uploading the file.

i can start copying in norwich to save any costs on TC part if it is needed.

Agreed that I'd prefer a download, however I do see why others might prefer a disk distribution method.

A lot of good ideas here. I'd like to leave the thread open for a few more days to allow others to have their say. Also Nick might care to move it to its own separate thread topic top allow more people to discover it.

Forester : I think I may have a better prize suggestion for you, I just need to check my locker of dungeon dimension goodies first. The Interactive project is deserving of the upmost encouragement!!

Suggest you all continue to check the Telvirtual development website - as we'd just about to post new treats.

The copying idea sounds interesting to me, as I have recently released (some of you probably know of this) a collection of films my friends & I made on a DVD using a similar copying & distributing method to that suggested here then my software is up to the task. Still any way to recieve this pilot would be fine by me!

I think allowing a choice should be allowed:

- Downloading available for thoses who have fast connections (or do not have a DVD player)
- DVD or similar format available via the distribution method mentioned earlier on a not-for-profit cost basis.

Still can't wait to see what it is like.

Two treats then? Very good indeed! The first will certainly do IKM a world of good, and the second will do our curiousity a world of good too!

I for one would love to see this footage - and I agree that vhs/dvd by mail is the way to go! Perhaps hosting it as xvid too for the people who are too impatient to wait for it to arrive! And for the people with no dvd player and/or no broadband - how about putting the xvid on a cd for them - that way everyone has about 3 different ways of being able to access the footage!

And goodies from the powers that be? we're not worthty :D

All we need now are regional testings of the demo - in say.. um.. Crewe ;) *cough*

Hey, I am still traumatised from never getting on the show - most probably due to the very itsy-tiny problem of never applying! ;) Think i'd pass for 14 on the new show? :D

I agree with the Brollachan to have the two options of a download available from either the main site or Telviirtual site and distibutions (from Televirtual) for those who have dial-up, no dvd player, etc. .

Well, I've had facial hair on and off since year 8. Used to be because I couldn't be bothered shaving, now because I can't decide if I want a beard and if so how long ;D

I keep getting facial hair which if I left would probably grow into a beard. I only get facial hair I think because I've been stupid and keep plucking it :( :'(. Anyway enough about facial hair and back to Televirtual goodies.

This probably won't do it justice, but I'd be happy to encode a Real format clip of the pilot (like I've done with the foreign Knightmare episodes) and put it on this website. That would be less than 5MB and ideal for dial-up users.

A high quality version should also be made available somewhere but unfortunately I would not be able to host such a large file size because it would really eat my bandwidth. ;D

Yes it would be good for some members to set up a distribution point for the DVD for those who want it. I'm not sure what the demand would be, but if a high quality download is made available first, then it's possible that many people would be happy with that.

PS: I have made this thread stickly. Unfortunatly there isn't a way of spliting the thread into two.

Wow - what a fantastic prize. Thrilling to see such a piece of folklore history made available like this. Thanks!

Have just had a look at the ogre sequence. If the early seconds are demonstrative of dwarf tunnels, then they work fairly well: they have the colour scheme that brings back memories of the mine shaft tunnel back in 1989. The idea of something guarding the door brings the required element (without a blindfold) of encountering rather than just escaping from pursuing enemy. Every step spells further progression, and a further piece in the jigsaw: will be incredible to see it all pieced together. KaM

Just trying to work out why I couldn't hear any sound - must be my ruddy computer.

Still looks very interesting - the more clips I see the more I am liking the new KMVR.
