    Next thing Mic adresses is the roofs for the mansion backbox.
    I am very excited to see them wasted with the dremel and painted/brushed

    Remember the mansion is an abandoned building,so it has to have a lot of wear

    Quoted from HD_Fatboy:

    Awesome on the Rubics Cube. I always hade to change the stickers to solve mine.

    He’s a great kid with absolute mathmetical talent.
    My father in law was on a quest,determined to solve the rubiks cube...eventually my mother in law took it away from him...it got on her nerves after a year!!
    Borderline divorce hahaha

    Laying down some lines with pencil,this roof gets the dormer you saw earlier and the other doesn’t.
    But the 2.1 speakers will be installed over there so Mic needs to make a cutout

    There...the 2 heads are resting for a moment now to let the adhesive cure a little more cuz the male head is not completely dried yet...
    Both roofs are really wasted looking now and ready for the Pinball Mic airbrush department!

    Now something i am really proud of!
    After contacting Jabdoa,my exáct situation-document has been created on MPF!
    I have been writing code all week to make the heads talk...
    When Mic is ready with the roofs and the heads are back in,we might have a little surprise for you guys...

    These kind of sequences you need to write...i recorded some voice clips with my Boss multitracker..
    The first clips you record are always super retarded....i don’t have a villain voice...i am such a no voice!
    But there’s vocal effects in these recorders,so i can enrich a voice some...
    Then after adding a voice clip to your mpf library,you need to start synch the audio with the facial movements of the heads...

    Mic is teaching airbrush skills here...
    But basically i need the roofs so we can place the heads in the mansion and play the servo sequence i wrote..
    It is not perfectly sync but we are just doodling with sound and servos a bit.
    We can polish the head movements..no sweat..
