Backer Blu-ray Production Status

I just got an email confirming my shipping address. Indicative?

I don't think they'd have the Fangamer robot do a reconfimation unless they actually had the materials in office and didn't want to start the actually still long process of labeling, protect packing, arranging safe delivery, etc of 12,500+ shipments.  Which of course in the long run of videogames is small, but actually probably harder then mass production shipping on 100,000s+ because of it being a select special product that is a much bigger deal to replace because issues.  

Or maybe they would... but I'm sticking with the Fangamer doing due diligence just before actually dropping these things with whatever shipping company they use.  I do hope confirmation and tracking numbers provided is part of it though.  If you miss the email it's on you, not them.

Ok the series is live!  There's a big kickstarter pushing out now.  Boxes are going out and all the digital outlets have been updated.  VHX and Steam libraries will have the new content.  We've also expanded to GoG and Humble.  I would think if you live in the US boxes should arrive in a week or so.

Here's all the new links!

Hooray! I unfortunately never backed the game but it's been really great to follow the development of the documentary along with the Blu-ray. Just bought myself a copy!

Awesome job. I was wondering do you have the full list of episodes, side quests and bonus videos listed by date, want to try to watch them in pretty much the order they came out. Since the blue rays don't have sidequests I'll have to figure out when to watch each of those ;-) thanks.

Is there an ETA for when the new videos will replace the old ones on Humble for Broken Age backers?

(Side question: Does it make sense to keep the original videos available?)

blargh that might have slipped through the cracks but i'm on it now!

I don't see any reason to keep the old versions up, pretty sure they're worse in every way.  I wouldn't say this is an original trilogy type scenario.

The mp4 downloads and the blu-rays have everything in chronological order.  Deleted Scene 2_1, 2_2, and so on.

The blu-ray looks great! Unbelievably tempting to buy a copy, but budget is really tight. Is there any exclusive content to the blu-ray that you don't get in the digital deluxe version?

All the blu-ray stuff is in the digital bundles, you just don't get the wrapper of the menus.

Just bought the Blu-ray! SO EXCITED!

Really been looking forward to watching the whole thing again.

Thanks for all the work you put in this. :)

I see the beautiful VHX updates but I'm going to wait for the bluray because I'm not downloading them huge files.

Steam has the commentaries but the bonus videos aren't popping up there.  The bluray will just make it all make sense better.  

(I'm lying I bet I watch it all cause I'm impatient, then watch it again when the bluray comes)

Blu-RayOrdered. :) Let's hope shipping estimates to the UK were pessimistic...although I suppose it'll be a nice Christmas present to myself!

It looks awesome, well done! :) 

This kickstarter has really been a ridiculous amount of value for the $100 I pledged those years ago. 

Playing the Lifeformed OST for this on Spotify at work now, for nostalgia. :)

I'm wondering the opposite, how much isn't on the blu-ray and did you guys signify it, or will I have to compare between them?

 

I think I might make my own discs for anything not on the official version.

Only thing not on the blu-rays is sidequests.

If you logged in to check out the stuff on VHX and found it to be a jumbled mess, it should be fixed now.  Sorry about that.

Am I missing something, or are the bonus .ZIPs for episodes 1-13 missing on VHX?  And are there going to be "remastered" .ZIPs for the sidequests, or are the existing videos considered the authoritative versions?

They shouldn't be missing!  I count 1-20 in my library listing.  They are totally out of order though, which sucks.  I've talked to VHX and they can't do anything to fix the zip file ordering.  Once they get their text formatting fixed i'll push out an update with a more detailed walkthrough of the content.

And just to be clear, you find all the zips at the bottom of your library, or from the "bonus" drop down menu in the episode player.

Well, they're not there.  I've checked both the library and the bonus dropdown, and force-refreshed the page to make sure.  I've got:

  • ZIP of Bonus Ep 14-20
  • ZIP of Deleted Ep 1-6, 8-12, 14-20
  • ZIP of Episode 1-20
  • VIDEO of Bonus Ep 1-20
  • VIDEO of Deleted Ep 1-6, 8-12, 14-20
  • VIDEO of Episode 1-20
  • VIDEO of Sidequest (count: 10(?))

And since I have no idea how many Sidequests there are supposed to be, and the Google Doc spreadsheet lists a lot more than I'm seeing, here are the ones I have in my library:

  1. Sidequest // Lee Petty "I Was a Very Pleasant Baby"
  2. Sidequest // Anna Kipnis "I Got My Dream Job"
  3. Sidequest // Brandon Dillon "There Are Potentially Some Legal Issues"
  4. Sidequest // JP LeBreton "You Don’t Step in the Same River Twice"
  5. Sidequest // Oliver Franzke "I Would Have Absolutely Laughed"
  6. Sidequest // Ray Crook "I Think It's Ok That I'm Still Here"
  7. Sidequest // Justin Bailey "My Seat Only Goes Back so Far"
  8. Sidequest // Khris Brown "The Purity of Your Intent"
  9. Sidequest // Ben Peck "It’s Not Like This Every Day"
  10. Sidequest // Camden Stoddard "The Weight of the Sound"

Ah!  You're right!  So sorry about that, I thought you meant the series.  I'm going back over all of this now!

There's an error in VHX's file server that's preventing some of the bonus video zips from appearing in the listing.  They are up there on the server, but they aren't showing up in the library.  I'm trying to work it out with them now.

And because I obviously haven't heaped enough trouble on you...

I just tried to extract all the ZIPs I have, and DFA_Deleted_Ep10.zip and DFA_Deleted_Ep16.zip are coming up as corrupted.  Tried to re-download them, and they were still corrupted.  I'm trying to re-download (again) in a different browser, but since I doubt Chrome is going to cache 14GB of files, and my connection is rock-solid, I'm thinking it's the files on the VHX server which are problematic.  Will update once downloads are done...

CRC32 hashes for what I've got:

  • DFA_Deleted_Ep10.zip:  0537C3F5
  • DFA_Deleted_Ep16.zip:  9C25BA4A

Windows zip size limit!  Both of those are over 4gb.  I'll have to try packing them up in smaller directories just for VHX, probably cut 16 in half too.
