About Dynamo-Joe

  • Birthday January 1
  1. Okay - so you guys might remember my namesake character Dynamo Joe. Big Mecha - top of the height scale and all? Got a couple more like him in my character list. Played mostly seriously. Well... Here's the silliness: Yes. It's the SUPER-DEFORMED version of Dynamo Joe. 😄 I even made it as a separate character. Just so I could have fun with the bio! Don't TOY with him though! 😄 "Who you calling TINY? Yeah? Say that again! YEAH! You BETTER RUN!!!" Speaking of running - the run cycle on this little guy is HILARIOUS! Most characters are tap tap tap tap My BIG mecha characters are tap... tap... tap... tap... DJ is taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap And the smoke trail from sprinting is worthy of a Warner Bros toon! I gotta get some sleep. Still laughing my butt off. 😄
  2. A few options from the NPC version of the IDF that you can look at via the NPC Icon tool are shown here on the right. The original character is on the left. That's the Chest Attachment option, the Shoulders, the Gloves and the boots. Aside from some baked in colors (the red accent lights) I'm pretty sure these would be ready to go as far as additional costume options. They don't appear to clip any more than any of the regular parts do.
  3. You can also copy/paste into that space using CTRL-V (the control button plus the letter v button) from an existing document. I recommend using notepad, since that removes all formatting and lets you get a clean copy with only letters and punctuation. I mention this mainly because you cannot SAVE the progress on your bio just using the game UI. Also keep in mind there's a limit of the amount of characters (letters, spacing) you can put into the game bio. I forget what that limit is. But it's usually enough for the Cliff notes version of a character story that you see displayed here. You might need to do some experimentation on what that limit is. I think the first rule of bios is something that Ascendant (with an A) taught me long ago. Try to keep it as close to an "elevator pitch" as you can and you'll be fine. Once you have the basic idea there, you can embellish it until you reach the limit of what the Bio field will allow. What's an "elevator pitch"? Back in the days of people like Gene Roddenberry trying to sell Star Trek to TV executives, legend has it that you sometimes had to catch them in the elevator going down to the lobby from the corporate offices to have any hope of having the kind of private meeting that inevitably seemed to keep getting put off. And you had to sell your idea in the amount of time it took for the elevator to travel from the top floors to the lobby while you had your "captive audience". Which was - on average, about 30 seconds. That's why it's often told that Gene Roddenberry sold Star Trek to the execs as "Wagon Train to the Stars" because they had to be sold the idea in language they understood. (And it was all westerns back in those days) Thus the term "elevator pitch". You're trying to grab us with your idea in the first paragraph. If you fail we get bored and move on. It's brutal, but it's reality. If you succeed, you have the rest of the bio space to tell the rest of the story.
  4. You know... We REALLY REALLY need a location/exploration badge in the Underground Trial - or maybe the Hydra Trial. Put it in an out of the way part of the sewer tunnels. Or perhaps even in the Tsoo incarnate story arc of Dark Astoria perhaps? Title: It Will Come Out No More Text of the badge on inspection: "WHAT? WHAT'LL COME OUT NO MORE? HUH?" :D
  5. Do NOT worry! The colors are PERFECT. The chestpiece works. EVERYTHING works fantastically! Seriously, don't change a thing - you've got a WINNER, here! ;D
  6. This is my Titan Weapons/Inv Brute, Ronin Barbatos fighting a Malta Zeus Titan at the end of the Mediport Tech arc. I think this Zeus was supposed to come in early enough to support Captain Castillo while I was fighting him. But I made such short work of Castillo that the Zeus arrived too late. Leaving Barbatos to fight the Zeus Mano-A-Mano (or might that be Roboto-A-Roboto Arigato? 😄 ) I snapped about 10 screenshots hoping to get a few good ones. But this is the only one that caught my eye. But WOW do I LOVE this shot! It's a classic! Sound Effect: KA-SCHING!!! Next should be a massive explosion as the Titan separates cleanly at the waist and that ruptured and ignited fuel line sets off it's fuel tank and powerplant. (or at least it would be if this was an anime. In reality it took a couple more slices and then it just fell over. But if it were me, I'd go with the more cinematic option. Heh. )
  7. One of my all-time favorite maps. How often do you really just take a moment and appreciate the work the Devs did on these?
  8. Once again - some more classics captured from the old Live servers! DISCLAIMER: These are NOT MINE. I just snapped the screenshots! If any of these are YOURS - call em out! (I should note something about the emblem above - it SHOULD have been the "TARGET" emblem. But I was using a client-side mod at the time that turned it into the Green Lantern logo - something only I could see. So just imagine Disposable Hero with the Big red and white TARGET logo on his chest instead.) ( I laughed SO FECKING HARD at the above! I guess you have to know some of the old D&D lore to really get it. 😄 ) Always respect the classics, man. Salute! 😄 Righto then! More of the classics in a later post! Seeya!
  9. Oh he can definitely exit the armor: I was goofing on the original Gundam episode where Amuro gets in the Gundam and defeats two veteran Zeon Zaku pilots - with the manual open on his lap in the cockpit. :/ In this case Joe's pilot doesn't even HAVE the manual. Thus justifying and dove-tailing the entire leveling up game mechanic as a series of "Oh! So that's what that button does!" Moments. 😄
  10. I love this guy! I love this scene! I'm lucky I got a good screenshot of this with the words in frame!
  11. Cyberman 8: "Um... Guys? GUYS?" This is in Bloody Bay. I took this screenshot back on live. But that's not even the funniest thing! The REALLY funny thing is that I actually saw it happen AGAIN recently while I was badge hunting on THIS server! Apparently the South Shore guards are a little on the THICK side! LMAO!
  12. It's the LITTLE things that amuse you so much, sometimes. 😄 Dex: I guess it's not safe to go in there? Cyberman 8: Says Microwave Oven in Use and Caution. I guess not? Dex: Who knew Microwave Ovens could be dangerous? Cyberman 8: Industrial Ovens don't have the same safety precautions I guess? Dex: This is a Crey Lab. Cyberman 8: Oh yeah. That explains a lot.
  13. A while back I posted a few characters/designs that were very Gundam-ish. Well I decided to make the "Grunt" soldier from the opposite side - The Zaku! There's nothing fancy or ground-breaking about a Zaku. It gets the job done with a minimum of flash, as far as mecha go. But there always seems to be at least one or two pilots that can take a Zaku and make it a terror!
