TTD testing right Now

Thursday, April 17, 2003 7:38 AM
For anyone that is glued to the park cams, TTD had another soft lauch about 5 minutes ago. They will be doing periodic launces throughout the day. If you are lucky it may refresh right as the train is going up the hill.

Looks like he may be telling the truth. I caught a capture of one of the trains halfway down the launch track.

I happened to look and saw the light sequence in progress, so it does appear they're tying it all together.

i just made a quick site just to let you all see, this was taken off the power tower web cam.. the blue arrow shows the train; although the pic does seem abit small, the train is easily found because it is travelling over the white sector, in between the reds:

Yeah, it is pretty hard to catch, but right now it's pretty easy to catch on the launch track. Most of the time it's sitting right where the crane is at (for a few seconds. And if your lucky you can catch it on the launch track. It's tough to catch, but possible. I think they have two trains on the actual track right now.

yeah it works for you because you own the album. but if one of us tries it, it says "you aren't the owner of this album." the link beast posted works though.

I caught a train sitting before the launch track so I decided to waste some time and see if it would launch. I captured an image of the lights counting down! I'll upload it and post the link to it here later. Right now I'm seeing if they'll actually launch it.

Does anyone know of a free webcam image capture program that will automatically save each image?

I just sat around refreshing the page over and over and over. I saw a train sitting in front of the launch as they tested the drive tires. I saw the lights and them BAM! Here we go: http://www.houstonthrills.com/~ptreport/testcompare.jpg

The train testing is on the left. What it normally looks like is on the right. Pretty cool!

Looking great, thanks for the images! For the webcam, are you planning on animating them?

Anyways... can't wait till I go there in June! Who cares about school ending, this is what I'm looking foreward too = )
