can download it here:

I say this because I get no sound on youtube, and to watch that other link I need a quicktime plugin, which is actually part of iTunes which I refuse to install

quicktime comes as a standalone mate, unless i am unfamiliar with the OS you are using...

well, if I click to install the plug-in, it won't automatically install (because I believe mac no longer lets quicktime be a stand-alone), so I follow the manual install links, and I end up with iTunes-setup.exe :P

I did install it last time on my old C drive, and it did make those few flashes work, but I hate the way iTunes tries to take over your PC...
There are older versions of quicktime I can still download, but they probably won't make the flashes work, and VLC already plays .MOV's :P


stupid unneeded complications...

I just visited Henk Neiborg's site, wanted to view his work and was sad to see all his pixel art in his gallery has been jpeg'd :(

Just mailed him this,

Dear Henk,

I am one of the admins of pixelation - http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation - and having grown up with the Amiga 500 also a huge fan of your work.
Someone pointed out that a large number of the screenshots on your page are now in non-pixelperfect format. Lots of pixelartists like to study your work or sometimes when someone asks "Henk who?" we send them to your page to check on your work. Also pictures are not saveable anymore, preventing closer inspection for research or your techniques. Why all this, I wonder? Do you fear that people will steal your art? If someone really wants to steal your art they could just and most likely will open up an emulator and take screendumps there. I think I am speaking for the whole pixel-community here when I say that it would be very nice if you would restore the screenshots to their former pixely glory and perhaps also remove the save-blocker.

With highest regards,

Sven "ptoing" Ruthner

I have a total of 76 Nieborg pieces saved, 9 being Jpeg, however the jpeg doesn't really bother me.  Its not like it totally fucked them up, just added a tonne of unneccesary colors - you can still see how its pixelled though.

I would upload them to the interweb, however if henk has taken them from his site, then im sure he doesnt want other people posting them.

I think the jpeg'ing may have been the doing of the website creators, though I of course, can't say that for certain.
Anyways, I try my hand at a lot of game graphics, tiles and such. So I practice a lot at making stuff tile right, like grass, walls and such. It seems Henk does a lot of stuff without really worrying about tiles, but just drawing one large image. Is that a good direction to go with when doing graphics for games nowadays, since the same limitations aren't in place anymore?
