    The "cancers" zip file seems to be corrupt.

    I downloaded the cancers zip just today. Files are sometimes (but rarely) corrupt when they are downloaded. It's unlikely, but possible for a bad packet to be accepted as correct in HTTP or FTP. I'd try downloading it again.

    The Damnation download is the full mod, not just the intro movie that they entered in this phase. It's a very well made mod though (third person platformer/puzzle, primarily) in a world kind of like that from the movie "Wild Wild West." I'd say it's worth the download, unless perhaps you're on dialup.

    In other news, "The Editor Has You" is great. It's the only video I watched multiple times. Cancers has decent story and stuff, but the cancers themselves are kind of a joke and the animations for the human characters are kind of poor. Also, it sort of needed to be longer IMO. Sparked memory is, err, it's okay, the part in the hospital was well done, but I didn't care for the cell-shading part. Those three are definately my favorites of those listed though.

    There are alot of decent movies up there but I would have to recomend bot. It is one of the nicest ones up there IMO but you need a beefy computer to run it good.

    Now if I could only get rid of these white viewports I could make another map. :D

    Go to configue viewports and click another mode of window configuration, this usually resets the windows then you can swap back to the default one.

    - or

    Reinstall latest patch, this usually fixes UED as well.

    And another problem I had, the bot link was broken for me.

    I watched "the editor has you" awhile ago when Rachel posted about it on the forums. It was good, but based on what I recollect, I think "sparked memory" is much better. The sounds and models are just amazing (omfg at the modelling and texturing on The General) and the 'mini-story' is really great too. It must've taken an ungodly amount of work.

    Err, I think it was a joke. In the movie one of the characters is rendered by the "white viewports" problem that afflicts a lot of noob mappers.

    EDIT: I agree that the general was very well made in the Sparked Memory video, but as per my comment, I didn't care for the cel-shaded part. "The Editor has You" didn't have anything stellar as far as rendering goes (it looked to be primarily standard packages) but all the inside jokes is what made "The Editor Has You" great. I'd show it to all my friends, except the wouldn't understand and they'd be like "What? BSP Cut? What's that? Illuminating Actors? What's that guy doing? Accessed None? What does that mean?" ;)

    Yeah I must admit that "The Editor Has You" was damn funny. I 'got' most of the jokes and I've only fired up UED a few times. The "Accessed None" one escaped me however.

    It's a coding thing. "Accessed None" is the message that appears in the log when something in UnrealScript tries to access a reference that is invalid. This is usually due to a bug in the a modder's code. (Though DE's code is not entirely Accessed None free.) If, for instance, a weapon tried to access it's weaponfire class and one had not been instantiated.
