I'm trying to collect everything by minus8 here:
But I need your help to make sure I don't miss anything. Link to new and old flashes here and I will update the collection!
Please also post suggestions on description changes as well, I'd like to write as much as possible about each flash (music source, background story, some into on characters etc).
Other suggestions are also welcome, how to group/order the different flashes for example.
My policy is to put his own flashes in the collection, however new and improved versions will replace the older versions if the older ones don't contain something missing in the new version. Also, in very rare cases, fan-made fixes are allowed to replace -8's official flashes (for example when -8 releases a censored flash and a fan removes the censorship without touching the rest of the flash).
I also need suggestions on fan-made stuff because I can't keep track of them all... There has been so many versions of ppppu.swf now that probably nobody has seen them all.
The collection shouldn't be flooded with different fan-made versions, if there is one version where the camera movement has been edited and another where the audio has been edited I might skip one of them in the collection if it doesn't have "enough value"... Likewise I hope not to have a million versions of ppppu.swf listed either, if an edit doesn't bring something new to the table it won't be included and if a better version comes along that has everything the old one had it will replace the old version.
Let's make this the best and most complete -8 collection on the net!

Thanks man, I've added those two.
I'd like to have suggestions on fan-made stuff as well (remakes etc). Wrote what my "policy" on this collection is in the first post but in short I want to list flashes that bring something new in their edit.
I forgot to write that I strive towards having the original file names of the flashes in the collection as well (since -8 seems to post his stuff with unusual names). So if anyone sees a file that have the wrong file name please let me know what the original file name was.
Btw someone wrote that they didn't think Joey.swf (Homestuck) was made by -8. Anyone have thoughts on that? Whenever possible I'd like to have some kind of backup to a claim (blog post or whatever), though I realize it can be hard to show definite proof of anything...
|>>||Anonymous 27aug2015(th)22:47 No.22820 C |P5R4
that joey flash was first posted on the /homosuck/ board on 8chan, I'll try and find the original post (though there was a wipe due to admin shenanigans) but basically there's a mysterious artist who sometimes draws joey and posts anonymously
every transparent image in this thread was done by this mystery artist, and I really doubt -8 would do this, just because only people who keep up with homestuck have even heard that joey is going to be a future character, and he's never done any other homestuck flashes
here's an archive link to when it was first posted, if there's an instance of the flash earlier than this then I guess I might be completely wrong but I really don't think there is.

|oh i forgot to mention, since you want to keep track of filenames the original name was hij.swf (short for hey its joey)|
|>>||Anonymous 27aug2015(th)23:34 No.22824 OP |P7R5
|I still think that flash is by -8 though, it's just way too similar to his other flashes. That typical -8 filename (hij.swf) only makes me more sure it was by him.|
There's really no reason to think that -8 isn't a Homestuck fan either, that comic is (or at least was) immensely popular. And just because he made one Homestuck flash it doesn't mean that he is such a big fan that he will make another, from the looks of it he probably made hij.swf just in the spirit of the moment in that thread for fun (the flash was posted nearly one day after its creation so he had time to do it).
But I'll update the name of the flash, thanks for that.
|>>||Anonymous 28aug2015(fr)00:48 No.22827 C |P8R6
I really don't think -8 made it, but at the same time I don't actually know much about how he usually posts, do they just appear on swfchan?
|>>||Anonymous 28aug2015(fr)01:20 No.22828 B |P9R7
|I don't think it's from minus8 either. Same style of having music beat match the bgm and the action, but the actual art/animation looks different.|
|>>||Anonymous 28aug2015(fr)03:19 No.22840 OP |P10R8
Someone posts them on /fap/ or /f/ or swfchan's bot picks them up from somewhere else with time.
To me it just looks like he rushed the drawing a bit, since he (probably) just wanted to make it for that thread for fun. The flash's humor, facial animation, filename, music sync and speedy parts is spot on -8's style. Either it's by a good copy cat or it is by him.
Tell you guys what though, I'll add a note in the description about the possibility that it isn't actually made by him.
Still looking for fan-made candidates to add to the collection... Someone out there must have figured out which are the best versions of ppppu.swf to highlight?

Yes, I'm looking for suggestions of worthwhile fan edits to add to the collection. But link to them on swfchan, saves me the trouble of trying to figure out their number on swfchan...

I'm on it, will be added soon. Original file name is "$D6.swf", anyone can decipher its meaning?

|Loving all the Minus8 stuff!|
Minus8 is awesome. He/she/they does/do quite professional looking work. I realize discretion is important considering some of the subject matter but I've become a fan and the work is so good I'm curious who Minus8 is and where they're from, i.e. Are they Asian? European? Do they have a background in cinematic animation? Any info will be appreciated, tia.
Good idea and nicely implemented to make the Minus8 collection so easy to navigate.

I've added all of his new flashes (some of which I uploaded to swfchan a moment ago) and I've updated some old descriptions.
The "Fan-made stuff" section has grown a bit as well but is still severely lacking in content. Does nobody have any input on which ones are the best ppppu edits?

The collection has been updated. I think I got all of his works now, if not let me know! Also if anybody know the music in pov.swf let me know! Or of course if you know the music in any other flash that I haven't already written the source of already.

could you perhaps add the music-less / stable camera versions for the sofa series?

sorry ignore the non gay edit
|>>||Anonymous 8aug2016(mo)15:55 No.37430 OP |P25R21
ank.swf has been added! Flash #173124 was already there (as you discovered). I didn't include the monkey flash in the sofa section earlier because it was just a remake of double.swf (had a note there that there was a sofa version) but I've added it now, might as well so it's not overlooked.
If you can find camera-stable versions of them all I'd be happy to add them, just dump the links here. Musicless versions don't feel as important since people can always mute their speakers and there's usually not much quality to the sound effects on their own.
I've got a feeling that I'm still missing a recent -8 flash though, am I wrong?

Those two flashes have been added plus the new "12121qw1wq.swf". Let me know if I'm still missing anything or if you have music source or related links to be added. Or if there's a file name to be corrected.

|I've missed a few flashes that were posted lately, can anyone help me out?|
|>>||Anonymous 3oct2016(mo)04:12 No.39644 OP |P30
I've added 13 flashes to "Mixture" and 1 to "Clean". Had to add a couplr of them to swfchan. I don't think the collection is missing anything right now.
I need help with descriptions though, I don't know most of these characters. If someone would write where they are from either here or in the /fap/ threads that would be great. Please check the collection for blank descriptions or text that could be improved.

|This one version of ppppu has more animations than the current one in the fan made section: (look for ppppux on Internet, not sure if I can post URLs to sites other than this and *chan sites)|
|>>||Anonymous 27dec2016(tu)04:21 No.42645 OP |P32R26
It needs to be a stand-alone flash file, that version doesn't work without reading external flash files. If someone makes a stand-alone .swf file of it I'd be more than happy to add it to the collection.
|>>||Anonymous 28dec2016(we)01:01 No.42701 M |P33R27
Oh, just tried to download it from that source and saw I couln't get that swf as a whole. Sorry.

Thanks, hadn't noticed poten5.swf yet!
General message to everybody: What I often need most help with are both character names and the series they are from, if an entry is blank in the collection it's because I haven't bothered to look up who the characters are yet. If you're somebody who knows you can help me out by saying the name of the character and that'll save me some time.

|YouTube links to any background music is also great to let me know about if you know what's playing. I'd like the collection to have as much info as possible but I can't find time to hunt down all the remixes myself.|

It's been added, thanks! That music list seems useful, can't go through it right now to pair it against all the flashes but if somebody want to help me with that it would be great. Otherwise I'll get around to it eventually.
