@  Wulfsbane : (19 August 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Strangely I can see it.

@  Shadow : (18 August 2019 - 10:39 PM)

Imagine Dwayne Johnson voicing Knuckles...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 07:40 AM)

Good to hear.

@  chief : (13 August 2019 - 07:27 PM)

We are in talk with background artists actually...

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

some traditional cel painted backgrounds would be lovely.

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

Is their any plans on what might be added if the budget reaches a certain quota?

@  wildfire : (13 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

Just saw the preview for Sea3son animated. It looks awesome! Voices are great. I only wish I had money to support.

@  wildfire : (12 August 2019 - 11:30 PM)

Glad to see this place is still bustling. I went through my old comics last night, made me think of you all. I miss this place sometimes.

@  Ishapar : (12 August 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Keep screaming, Redauthar.

@  Wulfsbane : (10 August 2019 - 05:27 AM)

I've been busy with work. A lot of OT recently

@  Shadow : (09 August 2019 - 01:06 AM)

I just don't have much to say.

@  RedAuthar : (07 August 2019 - 11:12 AM)

I must be a very loud person.

@  RedAuthar : (07 August 2019 - 11:12 AM)

On a different note. I've been using my phone to visit FUS for so long that I haven't used the Shoutbox in about a year. Still top Shouter somehow.

@  RedAuthar : (07 August 2019 - 11:11 AM)

Fixed it. If you use the full editor on a shout you can link the Video using text.

@  chief : (31 July 2019 - 07:00 PM)

though interesting fact...Kef is working on new forum software!

@  chief : (31 July 2019 - 07:00 PM)

It breaks it....

Technically if Archie had paid him the royalties none of this would have happened. Should they have, no, but still it takes two to fight.

It's Archie's fault. Penders was the victim in this.

But did they actually owe him that money?

Yes because since Penders never signed a contract (because he was a freelance writer) any characters he created were technically his.

Looking back at the case, I'd say both sides are guilty.

Pretty much. There really is no reason to blame anyone or keep continuing a witch-hunt over this. Both sides done goofed.

I agree that both nether Penders or Archie are innocent in this matter, though I do wonder why the characters aren't being used.

 

One thing I heard was that Penders' Characters can be used as long as the future of the comic matches Mobius 25 Years Later, which I hope is not the case.

 

If not that, then my only explanation is that the higher ups at Archie are sore after the lawsuit and forbid the team from ever using Penders' Stuff again, which I'm more inclined to believe. Yes that is petty, but considering how things are run over there I wouldn't be surprised.


Seriously, HOW THE HELL did nobody know that Robotnik was evil!? I mean just look at those red, glowing, hellish eyes, oh yeah I can completely trust that guy with my life! *sarcasm*

Nope.  He created the characters for their comic under their name.  He technically doesn't have the rights to those characters.  

 

However the problem would have been easily solved if they sent money his way.

Penders never signed any of his scripts or works either.  Archie has more claim to these characters than he does.

I'm having difficulty finding information on if, as a result of the lawsuit, if Archie is forbidden from re-releasing certain older issues now (Like the Knuckles miniseries). Does anyone know or can guide me to where I could find out?

Archie is still releasing the collections, but they have a few regulations to fallow: they have to acknowledge the original writers of the issues and they can't use certain characters created by said writers in any new artwork for the collections.

Define "acknowledge". Surely they were already crediting the writer for each story?

Acknowledgement, as in "displaying the names of those behind it rather than just advertising it as another Archie product".

How is that different from what they were already doing? I know the original issues always credited everyone involved. Surely they weren't removing the credits in the reprints, right?

The comics were never going to be used. Any Sonic movie made was always going to follow the game canon(for better or worst).
