Airwolf Episode Guide v0.1 Beta



The Airwolf Episode Guide

VERSION: 0.1 BETA (here)
RELEASE DATE: 1/NOV/2018
close the website login box, you don't need to register to download the file
 
COMPATIBILITY: Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Win 8, 8.1 and Windows 10

The "old" airwolf Cd Rom concept started out back in 2004 and had a random release in 2005. That is no longer compatible with newer versions of windows.

So i decided to work on some NEW smaller programs that cover some specific fields of airwolf history.



Known Airdates & Production Code Screen for Each Episode



Airdates, Production Codes, Cast Bio's, Trivia, Bloopers, Behind the Scenes and a host of other little features make up a great looking guide with a stack of information.

ALL SEARCHABLE OFFLINE
NO 3RD PARTY SOFTWARE OR PLUGINS NEEDED...

NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED...

Well.. unless you wish to use the Internet Links collection accessed on any screen by simply pressing  L





Biography Screens





Bio screens for actors, actresses, stunt men, pilots, writers.. random crew..

Real names, Actors Guild names, Births, Deaths, Home Towns, Age, Heights.. its a mission...

It's a big undertaking for a project like this & again highly time consuming (its a hobby for a show i love) Not something i'm essentially looking to cash in on.

The licensing for retail would be retarded making its cost ridiculously high.




Tv Ad Clippings



Imagine on an "Episode Screen" you could press the letter  C  and it opens up a box were you can view the tv guides clippings for the actual episode.

OR

Imagine pressing  C  on the "Episode List" to few all clippings from that specific series of episodes.

It's a project no ones taken on simply because theirs no way to make money off it.. Likewise with the merchandise guide, no money to be made off that neither...






The Movie Information Screen


I don't no the future of this project, but i have ideas, some will work, some legally wont work.. 

Imagine on an episode/series "list"  you could press  P  for promo & a screen pops up with all the promo photos from that specific series.. or press P  on an episode screen for promo photos featured from that specific episode, sadly not directly legal.

The behind the scenes aspect "is possible" but its limited to the photos available to me & the community. We have sharks, every time a crew member dies. anyone pops up with photos they disappear and so do the photos.. Seller & Buyers prerogative.. i get it.. but (me & others) have seen people offer photos freely & they've been persuaded to sell & vanish... again sadly there choice..





Well known community members sit on archives of information & photos, hell one fk'd off with a crew members photos and aint been seen since... Less brown nosing and a more open structure community can only help these fan man projects expand.

I don't really want to do episode write ups (its mundane) Don't get me wrong its a joy to write a few.. then it clearly becomes a chore (this is something a number of people could contribute, so its not a chore for them or me) But then who delegates who does what to who's offered to do it ?
OR i could just copy and paste the dry often wrong write ups off the net...

Hell.. do you no when it comes to just gathering AirDates & Production codes.... Between the aw themes, wolfs lair & wiki web sites (none of them) have matching production codes or matching air dates...

This is the mess "we all leave behind" for the show... Unless we do something our selves, something were not going to earn from.... but alas.. a few nice electronic kinda encyclopedias like this & the merch guide..... game mods, random graphics and projects... in short just google the word  "community"   

What can we accomplish  TOGETHER    ¯\(º_o)/¯ 

I do have a design coding idea on how fans can add the promo photos "they personally own" to there own copy of my software, but i would have to code around what i no about the photos (dimensions, aspect ratios) to better size the tab and navigation button design to its layout..

Season 1 "photo shoots" maybe all portrait?, Season 1 "on set photos" are portrait and landscape (on set photos & promo photos aint really the same thing. One is a photo-shoot, one is a photo-op.

As such the box (pop up tab) needs the most complimentary dimensions, also needs a date, needs a credit to who took them, maybe a location.. slide navigation buttons.. a folder for the end user to place the varied sets into set sub folders.. then code added so when pressing....  P   on some screens loads what ever the promo  / on set photos (related to that screen) from the folder related to the screen they pressed P  on. On a Season 1 episode list, pressing  P  should allow a user to load their
can't even begin to "tell it" to look in "what folders" until i have an idea of how many shoots there was...

This thing  (is probably seen as a simple episode guide) but it is more complex than it looks (if it is to cover episodes in any form of in-depth way) Its a season, by season, cast and crew, publicity and what not.. awards, nominations.. i won't call it a bible because frankly that would be pretty self righteous....

Last but not least (until i release the beta for this) here is the readme file that offers more info on features.

Airwolf Merchandise Guide v0.5 Beta


The Airwolf Merchandise Guide

VERSION: 0.5 BETA (here
close the website login box, you don't need to register to download the file

RELEASE DATE: 8/NOV/2018
COMPATIBILITY: Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Win 8, 8.1 and Windows 10

The "old" airwolf Cd Rom concept started out back in 2004 and had a random release in 2005. That is no longer compatible with newer versions of windows.

So i decided to work on some NEW smaller programs that cover some specific fields of airwolf history.



Just imagine for a moment an electronic database holding 100's of product numbers, upc codes, amazon codes.. direct links that'll search amazon, eBay or google for a specific product your looking to buy.

Or scan the bar code with a mobile device with a store app of your choosing, even copy and paste that yellow UPC into any online search engine you wish.

We have NO plans to set a value on anything at all because that would be pompous, arrogant and frankly immoral to advise fans of an items worth. They go for what ever the reserve is going to be OR what fans are willing to bid.. NO FAN has a right to state a value to other fans, just the original street price.





The ability to search for products or just leave that search box empty to find anything currently documented.

Information on common problems encountered with the product along with any re-release info, countries of origin and much more.

This project "for it to succeed" is going to involve fans input, it'll clearly need fans input.

When someone on facebook posts a picture "of a product" it maybe worth reading the image description, the user could be looking for a upc code, an isbn or product code from the spine of a dvd, bluray or even a vhs. Photos, Dates & Codes are what this project needs.



NO INSTALL OR 3RD PARTY SOFTWARE IS NEEDED

Ignoring requests on facebook won't help expand this database.

SOME FOREIGN PRODUCTS ARE NAMED  "as is when"  MOUSE OVER TOOL TIP IS ENGLISH
DOESN'T SUPPORT 3RD PARTY CHAR SETS LIKE CHINESE / JAPANESE
(to avoid needing multiple windows language pack's just to use it.. sorry) 

I may however be able to add  "some"  foreign words to the search engine as it appears to support unicode
(even if i can't read it in the search box due to lacking the language pack.

Russian text has been tested (without my need for the language pack to run it)
all i could see when i pasted the test phrase "into the search" was |||||||||||||| but it found what it was looking for, so i maybe looking for translators to at-least improve the search engine for other languages.. who knows, could maybe code multi language over time.. but every visible text field would need to be loaded via a reading of the windows char set.. not a job im kinda looking into
but i got no problem improving the search for other languages with the right help

A LIST LIKE THIS SUPPORTS THE MOUSE and THE FUNCTION KEYS (F1 to F12) DEPENDING ON OPTIONS
THIS LIST HAS GROWN A FAIR BIT SINCE THE SCREEN SHOT WAS TAKEN

THE SEARCH ENGINE IS THE KEY!

At this moment in time i am unwilling to really "arrange menu lists"  I have NO exact dates for loads of things, as such its hard to add them to a menu with any form of date order..

Ber in mind this menu list is 7, 10 or 11 buttons per menu screen, each button with a link to a product screen by clicking it or pressing an Function key (and a mouse over preview) This is NOT something I can just later drag and drop to rearrange these "menu items" when i get an accurate date for them, i have to Edit them in multiple places if i move stuff.. So at this moment in time, the menus are limited, the search offers far far more than the menu currently does, but sadly the search can't support that mouse over preview.. its food for thought here on ease of use.. it needs the menu i no...

Solution to this ?,  I need scans for the "Airwolf Definitive Merchandise Guide Second Edition"
that was unofficially sold between 2000 and 2003.. for date order reference...

Until i get that then the "menu navigation" is going to clearly suck... OR my only other Option (not a  choice here.. but an option) Would be to complete the menus with everything out of date order.... So stuff i suddenly find outa no were from the 80's/90's, some random country ending up listed on a menu after DVD's from 2016 or something... Think about how its going to "look"

I have already asked for this from the so called upper echelon, I have also already told the upper echelon why i need it too... There not going to provide it.. In turn this project doesn't have there support... and in turn this is limiting its aesthetics... its ease of navigation... and making it take far far longer to create than this should... 

This will be far from just a copy of that guide... See the Tech Specs to follow....

So you folks gotta get onboard.. just 5 mins of your time giving info can save hours of someone elses time who's looking for info.. In turn you all need to help each other to make this what it should be.....
Not just helping me (the smuck spending time on it)


TECHNICAL SPECS:

I have added as much information (to the search engine capability) as i can gather for a product

Here is an example of what information is used to power the search engines higher capability (that puts it higher than google for airwolf search power) and that's no lie...

Information Source Example

This software concept has potential, but it takes time.. the harder it is to compile the less inclined i am to compile it... The more inspiring this is the more inspired ile probably be to work on the episode guide software,

A lot of this is mundane and very time consuming work....
While clearly the info it needs?   Well the info is often just a few feet away from some people who could type it or take a pic..  give it some thought... and enjoy the current beta release...

As you bothered to read this far.. and you've clearly read it by now.... heres a Tip...
you can Skip the disclaimer & the Animation by pressing  M  to just jump to the Main Menu when the app opens   :)

Please like the post on facebook to show your support in this project  :)

To contribute ?
reply below with codes, or hit that facebook post and reply their with codes or even images..
as google dismantle  G+  im unsure of the effects here (im in limbo) so the best bets the facebook post.

Remember to make use of the  K  and  the  T  keys.. and you can't go wrong with it  :)

========================================
IF YOU LOOK FOR  VHS  IT'LL RETURN A LIST OF VHS TAPES AN EXAMPLE WOULD BE

UK THE MOVIE - RENTAL PAL VHS TAPE (198?) VHR 1119 (S) CiC VIDEO

From this we can define it was a uk release, it is the movie, a rental (not retail) it shows it is in the PAL video format, its a VHS Tape and we need the release date for it, then we have the Spine Code identifier of VHT 1119 (spine code is essentially the manufacture product code), Its in a Standard Video Box (rather than a rental) so (S) is small box and (L) is large box and the distributor is noted as CiC video, often mistaken for C&C.

Granted we already defined rental but some rentals clearly did ship in standard retail type boxes too, as per our UK example.

Some random episodes have been released over the years on compilation tapes and discs, as such if you search for an episode name it'll list what releases it was featured in.

The F.B.I Table

This whole GFX render is fake. The table, the carpet, the chairs and all the contents on the table, all faked in photoshop.  Even the silver bits on the chairs are fake.  Every time i make something interesting or find something (airwolf related) i add it to the fake table.
At some stage i might make the photos smaller to cram more detail into it.
 
IMAGE LAST UPDATED 24th August 2018

1635 x 720
The idea of this is layer upon layer to build up many elements (all of which can still be edited)
In turn, a copy of it could be manipulated to create a spot the difference puzzle.

Its original origins was an A4 x2 (2 page) centre spread within a fan made graphic Airwolf / X-Files crossover comic (original here) and also (sequel here) both links point to facebook photo albums. The table depicts the information F.B.I agent Fox Mulder has gathered thus far on the airwolf project with the help of the lone gunmen.

CONCEPT:
In February 1987 the F.B.I received a UFO report from a former agent, Lorrie Grant. Due to questions relating to her mental state the report was simply filed and not followed up.  The incident report was later found to match a UFO report from 1984 where a fishing vessel reported the same sound flying over their fishing trawler on the night a U.S Naval destroyer sank. Further reports from residents in polk county texas from September 1984 also referenced an aircraft blowing over a pick-up truck and the same strange howling sounds in the air were heard....   As of NOV 1993.. Airwolf has been an active X-File.
