Slightly better Pok News Reports have been recorded using my school laptop. 
I converted them to OGG format using this online video recorder once again.
They now have a fancy News Opening Sequence! :D
I also dramatically reduced the file size of the game to 80Mb (from 160MB of the Prototype!)

I fixed up as many typos, spelling errors and grammar errors as I could in my script.
I also added some more sound effects.
More finishing touches have been made;
 - Text Scrolls forward instead of appearing all at once.
 - I made a "The Start" part.  It has cool music.
 - "Darth Vader NOOOOOOOO!!!" Sound when you fail! :P

Yeah, I think i'm ready! :D

Just like before, I have uploaded the system onto Google Drive with the link at:

I made a main menu background and also a load menu background!
This was done using Adobe Photoshop.
I've also been continuously editing my script.
I also adjusted resolutions and image sizes.  This in turn makes everything look better (i think) and also the text box is slightly smaller.   
I added a new image position 'mid' which is used for displaying the dagger exactly in the middle of the screen.
It is due this Thursday!

I still need to record better Pok reports.

I am in the process of making a title screen.
I have made my game called "S.T.E.V.E"
I changed the phone image and Sidekick image so it looks better now.
I also started making my project document! :D

Note to self: Change the "options" script to add a main menu background image.

So I've gotten my feedback report back.  
I need to make it more professional looking (*cough* Pok reports *cough*).

I've fixed some typos in my script.
I've also fixed up some of the "bugs" in the script.

Punctuation errors. - "As a result, his body was roasted along with some nearby grassland, which gave him major burns. - Don't worry, Ma'am, we'll solve this case. - So what's the matter, Detective? - Well, early this morning, he was found dead in a park. - But you may want to investigate Steve.  - If you turn yourself in, we may be able to reduce the charges against you. - Meet me at 14 Felton Road, at 8PM. Come alone or there will be consequences. - When I choose for the sidekick to go, it says 9PM instead of 8. - Oh whatever...it's dark so you won't be noticed. - I've said enough. Goodbye, Detective. - Detective, do you have any new leads? - *Yes - I hid because I was afraid, but little did you know, I was just playing along with your evil plans. - Stop trying to fool me, I know everything. Put the chainsaw down and surrender. - There's no turning back now. - Mr Woo, you're coming down to oblivion with me *edit*. - "Oh boy"?  

Bugs

After 716 lines of epic scripting, I believe that my Multimedia system has finished its prototyping stage! YAY!
I have finished the survey and it is available here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3XYPTPL 
I will upload the game onto this website: https://sites.google.com/site/majorprojectmystery/home

I used online-convert.com to convert the videos into ogg format as the program I used to make my system can only run ogg files.  

All that's left is to compile my feedback report!  =)

I photoshopped more pictures for use in my visual novel.

Scripting is getting along, albeit very slowly.
It seems I will have to pull several all-nighters...

I have begun constructing a form for my users to give me some feedback.

On the bright side, EXAMS ARE OVER (for me)!!

I did more scripting today!
Apparently Ninja Tuna is a bad music clip to use in my game (according to Mr Ricky Chung).

I really need to get a move on.

I have been finding many excellent youtube clips for use in my "choose your own adventure" game/system.  
These range from animations, videos and music.  
For my character sprites, I am using this Chinese website.  It also has a wide range of backgrounds as well.  Bob's website also has many good resources.  I have also used Google Images to find items I need.

Today, I have photoshopped the "dagger" which belongs to Steve.
I also continued with writing all my script.  

I also gave my friends some feedback and helped Steve with his register posts! :)

The first couple of scenes are pretty much finished (for our prototyping purposes).
findsounds.com is a great site for finding audio files!
Ren'py scripting is going pretty well.
I'm finding character sprites to use online!   My friend, Bob, has also suggested a character database I could use.  

I'm a bit stuck at putting in video files into the engine, I plan to overcome to hurdle soon.  

Overall, I need to get a move on if I wish to finish my project in time (especially sine half-yearlies and ag prelims are coming up! D:)

So I recently decided to actually begin making my system.   That was when I realised I didn't really like using a website for my purposes.    

Yesterday, I discovered this cool program.   It's a visual novel creator, called "Ren'py."  
It will allow me to achieve what I wanted to do.   
Visual Novels are basically Choose-your-own-adventure novels, but are usually electronic.  They originate from Japan and usually use anime-style graphics.       
It wouldn't be as clunky as a website and also will seem/feel ALOT more professional.

I'm learning how to use it.  It's quite easy actually.
