New Files: Skorn Stuff

The infamous Skorn has made a handy reference map for Mystery Island, showing positions of secrets, routes to run around cameras and general tips.

Also a Ghost Castle tileset for, well, ghostly castles! The floor, at least.

Confidence comes from succeeding, and putting out sloppy, effortless work is not going to get you there. Notice that I gave your map a generous 1.0, since I'm sure that at least took you a bit more time than your tiles. Even ABCDEF,etc. and Bloop took more effort than what you've put out. So... considering how much time it would take someone to make your other file, are you sure you want me to review them?

Inverting Color is NOT effort. I've said it before and I'll say it again; GTFO Skorn.

You want to create a tileset using true effort? Then make something completely useful other than you pile of crap, using completely original color formations rather than copying and modifying default tiles.

As for the map file? I'm in agreement with Striker, its completely useless to everyone except for noobs who can't pass the Camera run, and I saw an 8 year old beat that.

I object 
Skorn, you're a bit of a mystery. If it takes you that much effort to create something why do you still do it? It's not like anyone is going to use your files.

And you seem highly emotional about your files too. If you don't want your files judged you just shouldn't release them. Or not release them on the dinknetwork, or anywhere else where people can comment on it for that matter.

I'm not going to give you any favorable reviews just because you whine about it. Reviews are supposed to be honest and open opinions about what the reviewer thought of the file. And that's exactly how my reviews are meant.

These files aren't the best out there, but I must admit, it's good step up from Skorn's old files (which were rightfully rejected).

The castle tiles may have been recoloured with Photoshop in 2 minutes, but most people don't have Photoshop and it can be useful for those people. I think I'll give the tiles a try, even.

I don't see much use in the Mystery Island map but it clearly took some time and effort to create it.

Most of the time, Skorn is a useless spammer, and if I had anything to say about it, he would be permanently banned by now, because of his behavior. But apparently he is here to stay, so let's not try to chase him away. There have been worse files approved than these on the Dink Network.

I don't think the ghost floor was that bad. If you can't be bothered to make them, you can just download them. Sure, they were not too great, but I'm feeling you are just picking on him because he is Skorn.

In all, I would give them 3.0. points (the ghost tiles). Not too great, but can save a little time.

As you can see in my review I did like the mystery island map, but the ghost floor was useless, sorry Skron.

Is it only me or does all Skron's (and Skron related) threads get huge?

"you are just picking on him because he is Skorn"

Honestly Skull, why would anyone do that? I'm criticizing Skorn because he doesn't behave and because his files aren't any useful. You should only upload files that you think somebody will make a good use of. Otherwise, don't upload them. Skorns Ghost floor was a typical example because it wasn't a complicated file and anyone can do it themselves in paint. However, if Skorn had included more tiles/sprites with the same pattern it would have been better OR if he had included a small tutorial how you could make it on your own in paint would have been good as well. Then the file had been more useful.

It's just immature to think "people are picking on Skorn because he is Skorn" and not because the quality of his work.

Well, can you honestly say that some, if not most, people are picking on Skorn because he is Skorn?

The quality of his work is not the best, but can save time for some people, like I said.

Now, it's not only about his quality of work, but in everything. He wanted credit for his work. People could have just said what could be improved and they could have been nice and say "These files weren't really good". Nothing gives the people here right to say "total crap" or "get the f*ck out", even if the file is crap. Especially Ex-Deathevn should not be saying things like that, because I haven't seen him release any stuff himself, so nobody can be sure if he makes better files at all.

So, I say, leave him alone. Sure, he has been spamming and creating multiple accounts, but blaming him from every thing and saying his files are total crap ain't gonna help it. But if he starts the spamming again... do whatever you like with him.

It's funny because you're also one of those who're picking on him and now you criticize others of doing that? *Hypocrite*

When you were new, Skull, you released a lot of crappy files and people got annoyed. But you got better, you started creating files with quality and suddenly no one was annoyed of you anymore.

I'm just saying that I don't think there's anything wrong with Skorn but that he need to behave and stop uploading files that might not even be accepted.

I don't see nothing with these files why they would not be accepted. There are much more crappy files here in TDN that I wonder why they got accepted.

And yeah, I picked on Skorn also (and many other dudes) but thinking back, I feel sorry for doing that.

And I got better with time in creating files. But why would not Skorn get better? He just needs advises on what he should improve. It's not like he's ever going to get better with people telling him to get the f*ck off and that his files are total crap, especially when they are not.

Everyone start of as a beginner, that doesn't mean that you should upload every file you make 'til you get experienced. You can still ask for help/advices.

I agree with Skull here. Skull used to release bad files but he wasn't told to get lost. Skorn should have recieved constructive criticism or been ignored all together.

We need to be advocating a cleaner, more perfect world. However, uploading some of the pathetic files may increase the likeliness of someone trying to make files again, so they'll get experience.
