Broken? It appears the "crawl text" field is combined with the "name" field.

Broken in so many ways...

Works fine for me, but only in Firefox. It's broken in Safari.

Broken for me, too! No space for "crawl text." BOO!!!

Works great for me on Firefox.
It's also insanely addictive. I just "crawled" the first lines of "Finnegan's Wake". Surreal.

It seems to cut off the text quite a bit (among some other mentioned bugs ...)

This piece of shit website ate my goddamn lecture to the girlfriend about not doing her part to keep the kitchen clean and now I have to talk to her face to face about this?

What the fuck, internet? What the fuck, indeed?

If this thing had actually worked for me, it would've been the most awesome recipe for baking powder biscuits ever.

Well that was about as successful as Episode One...

Totally works for me with Firefox 2 on Windows XP. I just made a recap of our last D&D session with it.

Fair Use Wars!

Damn it! They need to make this work in Safari.

I want my money back!

Works for me on Firefox2 on MacOSX 10.5; did the intro for the Champions game for this evening on it.

They should be highly amused.

It says, "For entertainment purposes only." Thats what makes it legal.

Isn't the Star Wars company, like, extremely supportive of fan-created derivative works? Fan movies have even been screened at film festivals, etc.

+1 for broken.

What, nobody's thought of this yet? Internet, I'm disappointed.

You've bested me this time, wiley AJAX. I will be re-re-re installing firefox in the name of creative expression to bring my vision to these series of tubes

This is kind of fun...

Except of course that Iliad is spelled with one L, and there is no edit function...

And I'm a little drunk.

It's still funny!

This site has been closed.

LucasFilm has asked us to remove this site, as they felt it infringed on their properties. We have enjoyed seeing the tens of thousands of users over the past several days, and thank you for your interest.


Oh, George.

The more you tighten your grip, Lucas, the more websites will slip through your fingers.

Aw, nuts.

By the way, Mac users in this thread who haven't checked out majick's link above really should.
posted by Prospero at 1:39 PM on June 23, 2008


I'm not sure I understand Lucas' objection or (more importantly) the website's capitulation. While the use of "Star Wars" in the title and url might be problematic, I don't think Lucas can assert a copyright or trademark on yellow text crawling against a space background. Seems whatever infringement exists could be easily rectified by a few word tweaks and a disclaimer.
