Fixed some sound issues and changed the dialog look, now the Font is now in dkc style with a black background.

Let me know what you think and what needs changing.
Thanks in advance for any constructive criticism.

I improved the lighting and overall contrast and the look of DK's/Cranky's fur.

There are a few glitches in the render.

0:43 Diddy says: "if it helps me to become a better person", this could to sound better: if it helps me to become a better kong.
The song at 1.45 is fantastic.
I would love that the kongs open the mouth when are talking at 3:25

I suggest to use a different brightness for the stick, it looks very similar to the fur of Cranky in your last screenshot.
I like the new details on the floor, they look pretty well !

You got it! I thought about that. :)

Thanks for you comments vege. I will take them into consideration. :)

First off, I admire your effort to ensure perfection in your video, Cyclone.

These are my last suggestions for your video:

The 2 drops on the "forehead" of Diddy could be flatter, and more transparent (they look very spherical), i suggest that the drops are closer to the ear because when Diddy turns, the drops look like tears because they are "on" his eyes in that moment.

Just at 1:21 You could to stop the first song because the sound of the kremling must to dominate those seconds, it needs be stronger (it exists a plugin named Dada Life sausage fattener, it is useful for that ), maybe it could to be complemented with the sound of a reverse cymbal when he opens his mouth.

1:40 - 2:30 My favourite part, it is awesome, good animation, details and music.

From 3:00 I would prefer a song like this (or similar) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u_xtEFMP8g The music needs to be in line with the tension that Donkey Kong feels, i think that a faster song works better, and that song remains in the memory of viewers, so it is emotionally powerful, i guess that the music of the caves is not necessary from 3:00.

Your work is fantastic, keep it up !

I would suggest that, when Diddy gets freaked out by the lightning, that it happens AFTER he is finished talking, because then it looks slightly off and silly. The drops should also be present only during the scene with the kremlings(they just look very stupid before that scene appears at all in my opinion), which should start out with Diddy facing the exit to the cave and noticing one of the shadows, before turning around and noticing the others, or with him seeing the gnawty come running into the cave(you know, thatgnawty in the scene right before Diddy's) and as he either turns around to look at it go by or trys to get rid of it before it takes the bananas, notices the kremling shadows, and the scene plays as normal.

EDIT: During the scene with the glowing kremling eyes, add some to the left side for a more balanced effect. The scene with the Krusha charging at diddy should also be melded into that same scene, by the way, in that some additional kremlings appear in front(one of these could be Klump, but that's for you to decide) as silhouettes with their own glowing eyes, until the Krusha is visible to see(supposedly thanks to the lightning) and then charges at Diddy, ending the scene. Which, by the way, should probably wait a few seconds before beginning the transition to the title of the project.

I'll try to make time to go through the whole sequence so far, but here are my thoughts on the opening text:

"It Was A Dark And Stormy Night", is a nice callback to the original story's lead-in, but the relevant dialogue in the instruction booklet reads "IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NITE...", so perhaps that odd spelling ought to be honoured, the ellipsis should be included, and an all-caps approach is best. Also, having the text positioned in the centre (up a bit) would probably look better, too.

Using the Gill Sans font is a nice touch, even though it's not the one this text featured in the manual. I wonder what font they did use... :scratch:

The story pages (again) for reference:

Thanks for the feedback Qyzbud.

I noticed the contrast was way off when viewed on my new monitor. Everything else seems fine but not my animation.
In post I adjust the colour/contrast to correct it.
Let my know if it looks good on your end.
Thank You.

No comments on my latest compilation of the scenes? Need to know if the brightness/contrast is good. Thanks.

Also what do you think of this intro text?
If anyone can find a closer match to the manual text let me know.

I think it is a good resemblance, and the colors on the font or really reminiscent of the original. Nice job!

Very good replication of the original font. I would just spell night normally personally, not too sure why it was spelled incorrectly.

Try this font called shock therapy :

I looked for fonts called electric or shock, maybe there is a better one there.

This is the "jpeg projection" (1600x1200) from the vectorization:


I am not sure if to create a dkc font could be useful. I prefer your version Cyclone, it looks more modern, i would like watch your new animation!

This is amazing. Looks just like the font in the game manual. Can I use this for my project?

Does anyone want me to continue my animation project? Or should I call it dead/abandoned?
The reason I ask is I have an illness that is preventing me from fully enjoying working on it.
However if people want me to continue it, it could inspire me to push past my illness,
Qyzbud, any thoughts?

Happy birthday mate.
