    Default Windows XP Rules !

    Our hero has recently upgraded his system from Windows XP 32 bit, to Windows 7 64 bit. General XP is not at all happy with this and so dispatches a squad to put things right.

    Enjoy

    Good fun. If I may be allowed to criticise, the difference in colour between the green (?) screened men and the "real life" soldier was far too marked. Not just te colour, the lighting too - they were almost flourescent. What did you film the soldiers against?

    Damm you Stannard, you always spot the mistakes !!!!

    Not green screen this time.

    I photographed the soldiers against a jet black background then cut them out using Photoshop. They are actually quite bright in reality. However, when I pick him up from the desktop the lighting conditions had changed and also its video rather than a photo and I could not think of anyway with the tools I currently have to make the soldiers colour match that in the photographs.

    You didn't spot the other mistake though did you

    It was the little things which I liked, for example when the soldiers "jumped" over a cable. I'm surprised how good this Super-ani-shrimpy-mation is and how well it works.

    Thanks Gaffer, it passes the time

    The mistake you didn't spot was a continuity error when I pick up the soldier. He dies with his head facing the other way to which I eventually pick him up. You and Midnight are losing your touch

    Not at all. I'd assumed that this was a deliberate device - showing the "virtual world" of the XP soldiers as a "reflection" of the real one (hence the mirror image).

    Obviously, I'd given you credit for a socialogical statement where it wasn't due

    And if you believe that ....

    Ok you win. I can recognise when I have been outsmarted. I guess I will have to resort to 'doing' your windows
