The Great Lock Legion History Thread

Post by TrashLock »

I had an idea while driving this morning to create some giant interactive timeline of the history of the Lock Legion. This timeline would contain art, screenshots, links to flashes (or flashes themselves) as well as a written history of the entire history of the Legion, from its creation to today.

And so, I ask that you post here ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that you have, along with a short description and an approximate date.

Next step will be gathering a list of all lock Flashes ever submitted to Newgrounds

Got a screenshot? Post it here!

Got an entire downloaded web page? Post it here! How? Just zip the html file along with its corresponding resources folder and attach it here.

Got a flash? Post it here!

Got a funny anecdote? Post it here!

I have raised the file upload limit to 512mb so you guys should be able to upload pretty much anything using the "Attachments" feature on the forum.

Thanks! I've downloaded this to keep it safe in case these disappear. Got an estimated date on this goldmine?

It's incomplete, but NG do still have a collection. Good starting point at least.

I know we've lost a lot due to copyright claims and such. Don't Stop Believing collab got taken down unfortunately, a long with a few others of mine.

I believe MP3 has these swf's somewhere, or at least someone has access to the NG accounts that posted them and can get them back. We could host them here for the ones taken down on NG.

Makes sense. I'm surprised NG didn't offer a mechanism for that, we put a lot of work into those, we should at least be able to see or access them privately. Unless they did offer that service and I missed it.

Journey is still up on this channel, though I'm not sure who was running it. There's a few other flash up on youtube on various channels as well.

Here's a marginally sorted dump of what I can find on my archive drive.
It covers a range from pre 2004 through to around 2009.
> Lock FLAs,
> Radish and I meeting in Bruges
> The Lock Fable Project
> Old school windows icon, screensaver game and winXP theme
> Pookie
> Virtual Locktopia
> A copy of the v4 theme data
> Various radio things, including Dennys' skits, Kombat and myself imitating Pikachu, etc
> Someone's old LL-related songs, not sure whose.

If I find more, I'll compile a second archive.

Does anyone have a video of Trash celebrating something about the LL (1k members or something?) by popping a bottle of champagne? I remember getting amped about that as a major milestone.
