Hello! I have a quick question regarding the Batman Arkham Origins book. I read through the entire book and all it's multiple paths yet I never encountered any of the scenes that were shown in it's debut trailer.…

Are there 2 different versions of the story floating around?

Keep up the great work!

Hey 321456qwe, it's an interesting story. DC asked us to make the trailer for Arkham Origins before we had the assets for the real motion book. The trailer is actually made from random assets from DC's Arkham Unhinged series, which they sent us to create the trailer with before we had any actual Arkham Origins assets. So the "storyline" you see is actually a collection of unrelated elements from different artists who worked on the Arkham Unhinged series—in other words, it doesn't exist in any other form than that trailer. It's a story that doesn't exist.

Hope that answered your question, and thanks for the support!
Thanks for the clarification!

I really, reeaeaallly want to use this, but every time I try to upload my PNG layers as assets, it gives me "Error: Error #2038".

I've E-mailed you guys, and posted on your Twitter already, but didn't think I was annoying enough so here I am on DA as well. :|

I've googled a bunch, but all I'm getting is the main website, and a madefire comic called 'The Trouble With Katie Rogers'.

I have been working some time now with the tool, I only have tons of praise for the work being done here. Looking forward to the format being adopted really widely so the discussion can commence on the Root of This Revolution: The New Vocabulary that will make this new storytelling experience truly come on its own, and not just mimic solutions that were devised for a child of typography. Truly exciting times ahead, my friends!
Lovin the comments Derventiotis!! We truly appreciate the support early on. We have some big things coming - stay tuned!!

Hello. I just started using madefire to upload a short poem, and got this error when trying to upload to web/Stash:

Migrate responded with error: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.
Error info: System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.
  at System.Net.WebClient.UploadDataInternal(Uri address, String method, Byte[] data, WebRequest& request)

  at System.Net.WebClient.UploadString(String address, String method, String data)
  at MFService.PublishWorker.Run() in c:\jenkins\workspace\author-release\server\MFService\Service.cs:line 204

I don't know what any of it means, but I would love to know why it won't let me upload to Stash. 
I am also logged in to DeviantART as well.
