The Dynamic Comic Viewer (DCV) software was updated some time ago to version 3.0 and we did a stealth update on the website, but it is imperative that you download it if you plan on purchasing any new comics, including the upcoming Dossier 006: Fire in the Ice.
Just go to the DCV page HERE to redownload the software.
There were minor enhances and bug fixes, so it isn’t really a ‘version 3.0′ so much as a ’2.01′, but that is what the developer chose as the iteration number, so who am I to judge? Just go download it as soon as possible. It is backward compatible, so it will play all of your already purchased comics and dossiers with no issue. You can simply delete your old DCV folder from your hard drive and replace it with the new one.
Any questions, just ask in the comments below. I fully expect to get like a hundred emails when Fire in the Ice releases that it won’t play because they are trying to open it in v2.0 and they didn’t read this post (or the note on the product page). DON’T BE THAT GUY. Pointing, laughing, name-calling, insults to your manhood, and general public ridicule will follow.
Here’s your sample frame from the upcoming Dossier 006: Fire in the Ice, featuring Polly “Pixie” Talbish, the young firecracker mechanic of the erotic series Dark Rift, and her pet alien Jester (and newcomer Liam the pilot).
After an explosion in one of the sensor relays simultaneously starts a fire and creates an argon gas leak, Polly manages to extinguish the fire and radio for help before succumbing to lack of oxygen and passing out. In the nick of time, Liam responds to her S.O.S. and manages to cycle the atmosphere of the relay and revive Polly. Having never met Liam before, she is taken by his handsomeness and decides to thank her rescuer like only a woman can. The couple share a sweat-filled, steamy, passionate sexual experience in the confines of the cramped sensor relay deep below the ice.
I’ve been really busy (and stressed out) planning my big birthday celebration in Brazil during Carnival 2015. The trip has already cost me a fortune and I still don’t have my tourist visa because I’m still waiting on my passport. Apparently 80% of people book travel before realizing (or applying for) a tourist visa for the country they’re visiting. And it doesn’t help that I’ve chosen the most expensive country to get a visa to. I am not even sure if my friends and I are going to be able to go. There is at least two of us that are going to have to look into rushed visa services when our passports arrive in
I’m actually embarrassed to share this image. This picture was meant to be the announcement/teaser image for the new set. But it came out looking like garbage. It is Ember’s Game all over again. Fucking nonsense splotchiness against surfaces from light emitters as well as unacceptable levels of noise. Back when Ember’s Game was released, we were using Octane 1.0. But we’ve progressed to Octane 2.0 and whatever revision it’s currently on, and still the fucking elephant in the room with this software has not been addressed. (See edit at bottom of this post)
I’m gonna let any aspiring 3D artists in on a little secret about Octane: IT CAN’T FUCKING RENDER INTERIORS. Full stop. Period. It can’t fucking do it. It is fucking garbage. Unless you put windows in the room that allow you to get light in the room with their physical sun/sky module or HDRI, you’re going to get results like this. Octane’s forums are filled with bullshit workaround and fixes: limit the reflective materials in the scene,
Welcome to 2015, ladies and gentlemen! I apologize for the extended absence, but I left town before Christmas like a whirling dervish and spent a week just recuperating from the holidays after I returned. I sincerely hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, and memories! 2015 is the Year of the Goat, soooo… I guess drink some goat’s milk for posterity? I think that’s how it works. Leg of lamb with hot goat’s milk is the traditional dinner… I think… Don’t quote me on that, though. I let my astrology practitioner’s license lapse years ago.
Okay, first up for 2015 is going to be Dossier 006: Fire in the Ice, featuring the indomitable Polly “Pixie” Talbish of the Dark Rift series, coming early February (date to be announced soon). In case you don’t recall, this was the second most popular concept voted on in the open poll for dossier concepts (you can revisit that post right here). This concept was the only one that
