    Maybe, the release of the videos will coincide with a site update/overhaul, new tutorials, new resources and the actual release of version 2.5. Then, new users stopping by the site will be greeted by an orgy of new content for them to peruse, and Unity will make an even more positive first impression.

    Just a thought ...

    That may be true DGuy... sounds like a good plan to me. Regardless, I'll just wait patiently for the videos... I think the longer I wait the more excited I am to see them. But, can't wait to see them guys. Thanks :)

    haha, don't expect too much. they should take care of the current customers. I'm waiting to watch what they say about development on iphone, now I think the videos are useless, because you can find more information and support in the forum community. supposedly in these videos Unity 2.5 was showed,
    that would have been good to see before the Unity 2.5 release. :x

    :?

    My post wasn't one of wide-eyed, naivety, but rather an attempt to give food for thought as to why things might be taking longer than some would like.

    As far as anything else, <shrug>, only time will tell ...

    Can Unite 2009 be on the East Coast U.S.? And can you bring the 2008 videos with you?

    I'd love for it to be in NYC too, but I think the expense of having it there can't be justified quite yet... even more expensive would be my real pie in the sky vote for Unite '09, Tokyo :wink:

    Columbus, Ohio has a nice big airport, and I assure you it's less expensive than NYC! ;) Or... Unite '09 Boston, or Atlanta, or...

    There's a secret ballot box here in the office. Maybe you can send in an absentee ballot... and remember, the "+/- infinity" rule applies here too so make sure to vote more than once ;)

    Tokyo FTW :!:

    It was dusk and I had been hiking all day. I shouldn't have gone alone, but I just needed the solitude of the woods.

    I actually heard it first, just a little rustling. I turned around and looked down the trail. It was really hard to make out, but I could tell it was big. It was hard to see detail, mostly like looking at a dark shadow in the shape of a man. It was hunched over and appeared to be clawing at something in the ground.

    I guess I was nervous because I dropped my walking stick. When my stick hit the ground, it turned and looked at me with glowing greyish eyes. That's when my curiosity left me. It arched back and let out a screeching sound, similar to that sound your television makes when fall asleep watchin and the station stops broadcasting...boooooooooooop!

    With a quick lunge it started coming towards me down the trail. I was petrified, I couldn't get my legs to move. It moved closer and closer to me with each lunge, with more of that horrible sound...boooooooooop!....booooooooooop!

    Finally the Good Lord gave me the strength to move, but my fear had removed all my coordination. I stumbled backwards and fell hard. I grunted as I hit the back of my head on the ground. As I looked up, it was already standing over top of me. It leaned down with its glowing static filled eyes inches from my face. I had never been gripped with such pure terror, but all I kept thinking was; where is it's mouth. It pressed heavily on my chest with what I would call dark shadowy paws. I screamed. I must've startled it, because as I screamed, that horrible sound began again booooooooooooooooooooop!

    I didn't know what to do so I started kicking. Somehow I must have hit a tender spot, because it reeled back off of me. I rolled over onto my stomach to push myself up off the ground. But it grabbed my back pant leg. I started kicking but it had my leg. I knew it was now or never. I gave one good kick and it felt like I was free. So I took off running like an olympic sprinter. It wasn't until I got to the ranger station that I realized I was butt naked from the waist down, it had tore my pants clean off.

    There's a lot of people that will say I'm crazy. But others have had similar experiences like me. There's always skeptics, that will say "they don't exist". That they are just a "product of your imagination". But they do exist! I'll never forget that encounter.
    Those Vids are real!

    LOL!

    I can promise you that the videos are being treated right now. I've seen the full folder of edited copies that are only awaiting loading screens before we can post them to our site. They do exist and shall see the light of day!

    Wow, I always knew the Unity guys (and gals) were great heros but now it's official.

    THEY ARE TAMING THE VIDS!!!

    OMG, this is so incredible! We witness their mastery from the distance. Once they have successfully done this incredibly dangerous job, we will get to play with the tamed vids on their Website - from a safe distance.

    Kudos, and I bow before you - UT FTW!!!

    And take your time, we don't want you to get hurt. After all, we all know you're up for another incredibly dangerous mission: TAMING WINDOWS! ... and we can all understand how much strength you need for that beast!

    No, because others have now seen this. Seriously, that was a bit of a jerk move, why would you do that? "Oh, let me share something I got off of a private location, post it in public and then try to back out by saying 'oh sorry, delete it if you want'"... :roll:

    I don't post link or any hint on how to get them.
    The location don't seem so private as I found links to it from a public place.

    Yes, but you clearly know that you're sniffing it from a not-so-public space and you know that you're pre-empting a nice announcement we were hoping to make soon. Your own sense of guilt is clear in your post, if you didn't feel there was anything wrong with what you wrote then you wouldn't have offered the chance to delete your post.

    So you knew you were doing something less than fully appropriate yet posted anyway, hence my comment.

    Come on Tom, we are hundreds waiting for thoses videos since months, you can't be surprise that someone who had found them was a little bit too exited about it. Yes that kind of childish, but is it THAT bad?

    It's just a screenshot from something that was already announced something like 4 months back (and each couple of weeks since).
    Again, I posted no link and no information about the content of the videos.

    I'm sorry for the troubles Tom.

    Please check your PM.

    You admit it was kind of childish so why are you surprised that I'm not happy about it? </conversation>

    Beeep? :)

    The videos are all staged, presentation slides have been gathered and if all goes well a site update will be pushed during the first part of next week as part of a pre-GDC effort. Don't hang me if there are delays but at least now I'm quite serious that they're in the queue to be pushed live. :)

    I'm happy to finally see these! However, I'm wondering, do we not get to see the Phil Harrison speech?

    Not yet. That's an unfortunately long and winding tale about getting his explicit approval, or rather not yet getting that approval in order to post his section of the keynote. We're continuing to push for that approval but didn't want that to hold up the other videos.

    We taped the Phil Harrison speech but oddly enough he didn't show up on the video recording... some sort of vampire magic?

    (Atari has lawyers... lawyers like to make everything difficult)

    I might get sued for even saying this... Tom, delete this post haste ;)

    Too late, Atari goons in black suits have been dispatched to your location.

    Highlight of all this so far:

    1) What happened

    yo thang broke

    2) How can we reproduce it using the example you attached.

    that's what she said!
