Dear Diary – 22 February 2012

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment

I’ve done a lot of things today. I feel great and also tired. By the time this post is done, my computer will be offed.

Today, it’s the official release of FinnixOrder Revolution 3. I spent almost 6 months in the making and it is not a great reward at the end.

There is also a server check today and it ended at 4p.m.. I get to play on 6p.m. because I have works to do and I’m not finished with them YET xD.

New events were added. One of them is this damned Random Beauty Coupon. The coupon randomly drops at random mobs and gives you random hairstyle, face and skin. I tried a lot and still cannot get a good look. My final look has a nice hair, bad skin and bad eyes. I still want to change it. Well, one of my trials is:

What else? Oh, my Ambition just reached level 60 and I got the medal “Bearded Ambition”.

My range with Rage and Level 10 Maple Warrior is x-15001. 10k<x<13k. And why do I type it with Maths? o.O. Maybe,  I did too much Math in my secondary school life.

Let me think of something else?

Hmmm……

Still thinking………

I think there is nothing else. I end this post right here and I shall see you all next time.

 

GOODBYE!!

FinnixOrder Revolution 3 to be released on 22 February

February 20, 2012 Leave a comment

Hi everyone, sorry for the series delayed for almost half a year. That is because I’ve probably busy with my works, my exam and gaming. I also don’t feel like putting lots of effort into animating :P.

FinnixOrder Revolution 2 was released on August 19, 2011. The new episode which took 6 months in the making will be released on Wednesday, 22 February 2012. I’ve finished with animating everything but I want to delay a little bit time (sorry) to save it and upload. Don’t worry, I’ve already planned it. But it will not be released in the morning so don’t wait. It might be released at the afternoon or evening but it will be before 9p.m.

Thank you for your support and patience while I continue to finish up the series. I hope I can fulfill my resolution which is finish up the whole series by May or June.

The trailer:
