Posting from Hong Kong

Well, I've mostly completed the major parts of my move over to Hong Kong now. I will probably return to subbing around the end of the month or so.

Setting that aside, the Gundam 30th anniversary festivities finally reaches Hong Kong with the Gundam Expo Hong Kong 2009! It's being held at the Metropolis Mall in Kowloon between December 17th to January 3rd. As with these events, there'll be plenty of limited gunpla up for sale there (poor wallet).

There's a promotion running with the MTR in Hong Kong that I can aid those that are interested in acquiring these sets for themselves. MTR are selling 2 timed promotions the, "MTR x Gundam Souvenir Ticket Set".

SCS-Works going on temporary hiatus!

Are we abandoning Kuuga now after getting this far?

NO!

However, I (Syochan) will be relocated half way around the globe this time next week. As with all major reshuffles of lifestyle, I'll need time to reformat my life (new PC, setting up an internet connection, a job, etc).

So for these reasons and probably a few more that I'm ignoring right now, It'd be hard for me to work on fansubs for a while.

Rest assured though that we'll pick up where we left off as soon as possible!

So until then, take care.

P.S. For those wondering why my relocating would effect Kuuga, you should see the staff credits on the Project Page.

And what a way to end the first 'arc' of Kuuga!
Hope everyone enjoys the ending to this story as much as I did.
We're also 1/4 of the way through Kuuga now.

Kuuga 11 released


We're still alive! Long story short, life got in the way.
Now watch us play catch up to where we should be.

5,000 Hits!



Okay, I don't know how you people managed it but exactly 5,000?!

Anyway, it was only a month ago that I made a post thanking everyone for reaching 1,000 and now we're on 5,000!

Wow. I don't know what to say.

I hope we can continue to receive your support later this week for our usual release and into the future as our project carries on its course. And maybe any future projects in store too!

Thanks again from the SCS-W staff!

Kuuga 10 released


ZERO_ninja's PC has died again due to a rerun of the Kuuga curse fallen into technical issues so here's another delayed release from Syochan. Enjoy!

Kuuga 09 released


We stumbled across a fatal error just pre-release so we had to redo encoding/uploading/etc for this episode. Here's Kuuga episode 9, enjoy.

Tuesday, 20 October 2009

Kuuga 08 released


Due to a persistent curse/fever; encoder shenanigians; hibernation periods of QC; technical difficulties, we give you Kuuga episode 8, about 1 day later than usual.

SCS-Works IRC room active


ZERO_ninja here, we've set up our own IRC channel on Rizon since all series sub groups need an IRC channel of their own. =P

If you are bored, wanna chat with us or ask questions feel free to visit our shiny new IRC channel #SCS-Works@irc.rizon.net.

Kuuga 07 released


Another week, another visit from the Kuuga curse. This time, my boiler gave up i.e. I have no central heating and/or hot water right now.

Because my lack of comfort is bloody annoying there is no release. Thankfully, that has bugger all to do with fansubbing so here's episode 7.

DDL Sites


After spending all of today trying to upload our files to MegaUpload with no success, due to their upload wizard failing or forgetting how much of the file was actually uploaded, it's been decided that we will stick to SendSpace for our DDLs.

If anyone wants to upload the file to other DDL sites and e-mail me the links we will list them as mirrors on the blog, but we will not upload to sites other than SendSpace ourselves.

If you do upload for us be sure to rar or zip the entire folder to upload so that the text file is still included rather than just the video and do not modify it in any way, thanks.

Edit: Special thanks to jgreat122 for the MegaUploads of Kuuga episdoes 01-07.
Special thanks to jedimb for MegaUpload of Kuuga DVD01 Extras.

Kuuga 06 released


Since the Kuuga curse is apparently broken for now, we're gonna go a bit further and give you guys a second episode release this week to celebrate that and the blog's 1,000 visitors so enjoy.

Monday, 5 October 2009

Kuuga 05 released


Okay, seems the Kuuga curse has some truth behind it after all.  During uploading, ZERO_ninja lost all electrical power in his home.

Luckily enough, episode 5 of Kuuga was completed although the other surprises we had in store for you guys will have to wait.

Kuuga DVD01 Extras Released

Here are the extras from the first Kuuga DVD, enjoy. The announcements are letterboxed for part of video as otherwise we would have cropped off part of Kamen Rider 1's, Stronger's and Black's faces.

This is just an Extra and is not replacing our usual releases still to come later today.

1,000 Hits!


A big thanks to all our fans as we celebrate the first 1,000 visitors to our blog!

In commemoration of this one time event, we're working hard(er than usual) to prepare some things for this week.

Keep checking back and thanks again from all the staff at SCS-Works!

WinRAR for DDLs



It has come to my attention that some people aren't sure what to do with the DDL files as they are rar'd into 2 parts. Unfortunately this is unavoidable as 355mb is beyond what most DDL sites will take.

You can download WinRAR here. Once WinRAR is installed download both part 1 and part 2 into the same folder, right click either one and choose "Extract Here" from the drop down menu.

Oh and enjoy the picture of Miku's Final Form Ride.

Edit: Also for MAC users here.

Kuuga 04 released


After that little bout of drama with our missing encoder, he's resurfaced and got the goods ready.

Here's Kuuga episode 4, enjoy.

Kuuga 04... except not really


Hey, one of the QCs here.

Kuuga 04 is likely to be delayed slightly as the encoder is AWOL. We suspect that pigs have attacked him and he is unable to fend them off.

Apologies to those expecting a release from us today. Hopefully we'll have it soon and thanks for staying with us. Enjoy this random image of a violent pig from Google.

Edit: It's all fine folks, he's evaded the pigs by hiding under a metric ton of bacon.

SCS-Works 555



Our visitors, since setting up the ClustrMaps on our blog, has reached 555.

Big thank you to all the fans that made such a perfect number possible.

Now to open our eyes for the next 555 visitors.

Kuuga 03 released


After a bit of a tight rush and almost missing Sunday, we've managed to squeeze out episode 3.

Monday, 14 September 2009

Thank you for your support!


Just a quick thanks to all of you who are following our Kuuga releases.

We are very happy that Kuuga episode 1 has been distributed over 500 times via the torrents already.

Thanks again and we hope to continue recieving your support.

Sunday, 13 September 2009

Kuuga 02 released


Right, after that quick week since episode 1, we're back with episode 2.

Monday, 7 September 2009

Kuuga 01 released


Episode 1 of our first project finally rolls out of the gate.

Sorry about the split DDL but the filesize was too big for SendSpace's limits.
You shouldn't have problems if you use JDownloader, though.

As always, it'd be preferred if you can leech the DDL then help seed the torrent.

DDL downloading made easier

Since the DDL side of our releases will likely be split into parts because of size limitations on most DDL sites, it can get annoying to get the files.

Fear not, this handy program will (hopefully) ease your DDL days. The program in question is JDownloader.

This handy Java-based item acts as a linkgrabber and a download manager for most DDL sites. It'll even resume broken downloads for you.

Hope this is of help to some of you out there.

Kuuga Preview v2 released

While ZERO_ninja's encoding the first episode of Kuuga, we thought we'd go over the trailer again and re-release it in preparation for the actual series.

DDL : SendSpace / MegaUpload
Torrent : NyaaTorrents / TokyoToshokan

A little background for the people who can be bothered reading: The Grongi (the 'monsters' appearing in Kuuga have their own language and as such need much time wasted in deciphering their words into Japanese, and then into English). At the time of translating the trailer, it sounded like the Grongi in it was imitation Grongi i.e. Japanese phrased/worded to sound Grongi-esque. Seeing as that wasn't the case, I went back over it using the handy but confusing Grongi/Japanese chart.

Yes, it's only two spoken lines and doesn't add anything of value new so it's not necessary to get this.

As we speak, ZERO_ninja will encode and watch #1 today before distributing it via DDL to the other QCs. If all things go smoothly, a public release should be in the next few days.

Thanks again for being patient with us.

Watch This Space!

Yes, it's been a while since we did anything on these pages but rest assured, we're not dead.

Had the longwinded stuff like karaoke styles, fonts, etc to sort out pre-project finalization.

Since everything is pretty much sorted now, we just have to wait for ZERO_ninja to return from his weekend trip and we'll run an encode and fire that to the QC's.

Thanks all for being patient with us!

Henshin!

You know the Drill

Hey! We're rolling (sorta)...

After what seemed to be ages since I actually created this blog, we're finally ready to do something.

A few things to know about our group;

*We have no schedules so do not ask, please.

*We won't throw a lot of notes on screen since most people will only need to read them once.

*Said notes will be collected in a continuously updated .pdf file located in the respective project page.

*Our releases will currently only be available in .mp4 format and will be PS3/XBox360 compatible.

*We will encode from our own DVD sources when possible at the best levels we percieve as practical.

*We're mainly located in the United Kingdom and our bandwidth isn't ideal. Because of that, it'd be appreciated if people use the DDL and help seed the torrents afterwards. Thanks.

That should be it for the major things so sit back and enjoy the ride...
