And a whip sword in ItemRightBladesTwo:

    cleared my browsing cache to allow all the new stuff to load. I see the whip sword and hook swords but not the raptor helmet. might want to check into that.

    Nice take on the chain sword.
    For a bit more flexibility, would it be possible to get just a single section, like so:

    This’d be nice so we could make the whip go in any direction we feel. With enough patience and Masking we could do this as is, but some of us can get short on patience. lol.

    While I’m asking the world, the last section by itself would be cool too. (The point)

  3. Jeff Hebert says:

    I tried to do that by including just a small section of four blades, figuring it would be a lot less effort to add a few of those rather than tracking dozens of one-offs.

    I thought about the ending piece, but it seemed like overkill.

  4. Jeff Hebert says:

    Hm, weird. I’ve reuploaded the set, hopefully that will work. If not just give it a few hours, it may be cached on the server end.

    I must say these are 100% badass! I also had the hook sword on my “wish list” haha, but now I can delete it.

    Thank you Jeff!

    Did anyone notice that the fourth evil ex on Scott Pilgrim uses one of these?

    Awesome !!!

    I love the Whip Sword 🙂 You did a great job with it Jeff.

    And of course, the Raptor helmet and the Hook sword are really cool as well.

  8. Danny Beaty says:

    I like the new stuff.

  9. Brad says:

    SWEET! The hook sword is live! Thanks so much, Jeff!

    Hopefully there’ll be another “claim lost prizes” gig. These were fantastic additions.

    Very nice job Jeff.

    I had a thought.
    I know your not working on the programming part, or at least don’t think you are, but I was wondering if it would be possible??? to add a feature that would allow the character background box to be either solid or transparent? Say for instance, you thought Cheryl Cole was jaw dropping gorgeous among the majestic creature that is woman, and you wanted to fashion a character after her. With a transparent background, you could find a picture of her on a second window, then line the program up on top, for a guide???

    I don’t know if that would even be possible, and would probably lead to copyrighted material, which should be on the creator, not the program designer, but would also open up so many possabilites with, poses, and design.

    just something to ponder.

  11. Jeff Hebert says:

    MB (10): Oh I see what you mean … I don’t think that’s possible. Even if the background of the Flash applet is transparent, you still have the HTML background of the page it sits on. There’d be no way to slide another html page or image in under that.

    Brad (9): I still have a dozen or so items from the “unclaimed prize” list to go, these were just the first few I got done. I’m going to be releasing them as I get them finished.

  12. MartianBlue says:

    Thanks Jeff, I’m know nothing about programming.

    Are you planning on releasing the program as a downloadable standalone? If so, then would it be possible?

    Just curious, just seems like it be a cool feature.

  13. Jeff Hebert says:

    I don’t know yet if UGO wants to release this as a stand-alone, although I imagine it would probably be possible to do what you’re describing. Maybe. I don’t know offhand, I’d have to look into it. Honestly, though, the odds of finding an image that matches up with the orientation of the figure are not great, and then finding items that are right enough to lay on top are also not great. It seems a lot easier to just have a picture up off to the side to look off of.

  14. MartianBlue says:

    Thanks again Jeff.

    Looking forward to more items
