Tudum + Thomas Romain Interview

odd + netflix

Hello everyone,

Here we are: all 97 episodes of the series are now available on the streaming platform Netflix. At first glance, the episodes have been zoomed in and cropped to appear in 16:9 on the platform, masking parts of the image in the process. It would also appear (and it was presumable) that the episodes weren't remastered, meaning the image looks somewhat pixelated on some large screens. As a reminder, you can also find all the episodes on the Amazon Prime streaming platform which broadcasts the episodes in 4/3 and 576p (standard DVD) as well as for free on YouTube (also 4/3 and 480p).

While we're at it, Thomas Romain, (co-creator of the Garage Kids project with Tania Palumbo, which later became Code Lyoko, for which he had also participated in the development of the series' Bible) gave an interview today to the BFMTV news channel's website.
This interview is now also available on the site right here! (Update: Now in English!)


Goodnight on en.codelyoko.fr

Findings of Dude Dudu - 2020 Edition
Posted by Dudu on 08/07/2020 at 11:02 (1 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hi everyone,

During these extreme temperatures we're experiencing, a little dose of Dudu's findings should rekindle your spirits! On today's menu: reading material, viewing material, animation and overhauls. Let's go!


2nd issue of the cancelled French DVD collection. In case you forgot, this collection had a test run in which it was released in a small number of shops in 2007. It didn't get enough sales at the time, so the copies that were sold are impossible to find nowadays (if you want proof, we only managed to get our hands on them 13 years after they were published :p). For more information on the collection, click here!

In this second issue, you'll find:
- A detailed summary of each episode with images, some original storyboard drawings from the episodes "Le voir pour le croire" and "Vacances dans la brume"
- Information on XANA, Lyoko and the return to the past
- An article on computer programs
- An article on the concept of storyboards
- A "rumours" section that looks at Sissi blackmailing Ulrich, Yumi and Ulrich's relationship and Nicolas's thoughts about the group
- A games page (spot the difference, a riddle and a sudoku)


Plus the leaflet below:




14 new renders to add to the family and there's something for everyone: 2D, 3D, main or secondary characters, monsters, or even vehicles. Some were already in the gallery but have been replaced with a higher quality version (with resolutions of over 4000x5000 pixels!), others are brand new to our collection. And of course, Code Lyoko ™ © MoonScoop/ France 3 / Canal J – 2006. All rights reserved.

         
    


There have also been a lot of changes to the Wii game page. It's clear to see the difference on the Characters page, but we've also added some scripts for the game dialogue (in French). The Monsters page has also gotten a facelift and now features the monsters' 3D models. Now you can see all the little details and differences between each monster in an effort to create alternate versions of each one in the game. You can also find all the poses for the Lyoko Warriors and secondary characters on the Characters page, which was also updated.


William is so excited to see you on this page that he's in a...some sort of...pose... Anyway if I were you, I'd click on this image:


Finally, to finish this installment, a callback to the time between seasons 3 and 4 when there was a bi-monthly (at best...) Code Lyoko magazine being released in France, entitled "Code Lyoko 2.0". For the magazine's 3 issues, there were a total of 5 original comics illustrated by Ullcer.

Today we can show you a bit of the making of these comics, step by step. From the initial sketches to pencils, inks and colour, start by checking out all the steps in creating the first comic "Shaken" on our comics page. Here's a small taste of what you'll find there:



A huge thanks to Ullcer for providing us with all these production documents!

See you soon for more news on codelyoko.fr!

IFSCL, An impression of Season 5
Posted by Immu on 07/11/2020 at 12:47 (11 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
IFSCL 40X has been released on June 6th 2020 with its first chapter 'JEREMY AWAKENS', this is, after 10 years, the first step into playing the story mode, carefully written for an odyssee thats going to live on for the upcoming years.
True season 5 ? Rewriting of the original story ? Many mysteries are shrouded in this fangame.

Along with the usual strenght of the game: interact with a super precise reproduction of Jeremie's Supercomputer, let's remind that it's the occasion for any new player to discover original recordings of the official voice actors, a high quality soundtrack inspired by the original show, and the possibility to discover emblematic locations of the series!

Bien évidemment, rien de tout cela ne serait complet sans la sortie de la version 4.0.6, et de sa mystérieuse 'Kawa's Room'

IFSCL - Trailer fangame 4.0.X
Posted by Immu on 12/09/2019 at 10:54 (0 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hi Lyokofans!

The IFSCL (Fictional Simulated Interfaces of Code Lyoko) is back for a new trailer unveiling a new cycle, 4.0.X and it's corresponding new version: 4.0.0.

On the menu: improved programs, costumes of season 1-3, and first visuals of the story mode and its chapter 1 'Jeremy Awakens' !
As a reminder, chapters are fairly linear compared to "custom game" mode, contains numerous cutscenes and dialogs (in 2D and/or 3D) with NPC.

Playthrough time should be between 5min and 20min depending on the player.
(Think about Immu's Room playthough time to which you would add a xana attack)





See you soon!

Code Lyoko Evolution on YouTube
Posted by Queen on 10/30/2019 at 06:09 (0 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hi everyone!

Just a quick announcement today. Mediatoon finally has the rights to Code Lyoko Evolution and they've started uploading the episodes on the official YouTube channel. Because only one episode was ever dubbed in English, they've decided to keep the French audio and add English subtitles, rather than creating a new English dub. If you're interested in watching Evolution, now's your chance!

Episode 1 "XANA 2.0" is now available. If they stick to their regular schedule, new episodes should be uploaded every week.



That's all for now! Have a great day on CodeLyoko.fr Rigolant

The findings of Dude Dudu - 2019 Edition - Part 1
Posted by Etienne on 08/25/2019 at 16:10 (0 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hello everyone,

It's already been three years since the last findings of Dude Dudu were published. Three years of absence that have allowed us (through websites/portfolios that have disappeared, buying dubious merchandise on foreign websites or getting in contact with people who worked on the series in some capacity) to gather a small packet of findings along the lines of "You want it? You got it" (Warning, excessive usage of outmoded expressions is dangerous for your mental health).
And as of today, for your great (dis)pleasure (choose the most applicable term) you can find a first round of findings right here on the site, and it's gonna be big.



Today we'll start with merchandise, and not just any merchandise: the video games. In particular, the second release for Nintendo DS: Fall of X.A.N.A.
The page has recently undergone a nice facelift, starting with the characters page. All the sprites have been added, including some findings: sprites that were never used, ranging from different facial expressions for each character, to William's 360° sprite which you can find in the Monsters section, which is another page that has been updated to look much, much nicer.
Finally, to wrap things up with this game, the music has been reuploaded in a much better quality than was previously available.

To discover or rediscover the new stuff in this file, follow the Lyoko Warriors!



Here's a new category that was recently polished with dozens of new bits of information: the DVD category! A few years ago this category was reworked to present the covers and menus of the different editions of the French DVDs, as well as most of the English DVDs and some Spanish promotional DVDs. Today, this category is updated once again to include the Italian DVDs, more information on the Spanish ones (thank you Beric) and finally, cherry on the cake, the Canadian DVDs! Oh yes, they published a brand new edition with new menus and covers for them. At the time, you could even own all of season 1 of Code Lyoko on DVD before it had been released in France!

The English DVDs page has also been updated with scans of all but one of the DVDs (we'll get you someday, season 1 Amazon release...) as well as DVD menus. Thanks to semie78 for providing scans and menus of the Funimation DVDs.

To access the page, follow the holographic card!




Big news! One of the elements that codelyoko.fr was never able to get its hands on has finally been found and can be published on our site: the collection of DVDs and booklets published by Altaya in some parts of France, a series that was prematurely interrupted due to lack of success. As well as allowing lyokofans to discover all the episodes of season 1 on DVD for the first time (even before the complete season was released as a disc set), this collection also provided booklets alongside each DVD, containing loads of new information like exclusive interviews or never-before-seen storyboards.

Today, I offer you a PDF of the first issue of this collection. Of course, the page concerning this DVD collection has also been updated on the site.

In this first booklet, you'll find (in French):
- A detailed summary of each episode with images and some original storyboard drawings from the prequel episodes.
- Information on the factory, the concept of towers, Jeremy Belpois.
- An article on supercomputers.
- An article on the creation of Code Lyoko in terms of story writing.
- An interview with Sophie Decroisette.
- A "rumours" section looking at some emblematic elements of the cartoon, like Sissi's obsession with her appearance, Odd and Ulrich's friendship, and Jeremy and Aelita's love for each other.
- A colour-in page.
- Two riddles.

And even if you can't read French, there are plenty of interesting pictures to look at!


[The official collection: Booklet 1]

As well as the leaflets below:

   
   
Stay tuned, the next issues are still to come ;)



A Code Lyoko Evolution that we kept at hand (thanks Beric) surfaces again today. It's a promotional video completely dubbed in English (the same dub they used in the first video as well as in the episode they aired on certain channels (Rivalry, which was also shown to the focus group in France)). The video includes sections that have never been seen in English before.




And finally, to finish this update, the famous Renders section welcomes a total of 20 little new additions (well...not that little). Monsters, 2D renders and 3D renders, some of which are over 4000 pixels in height or width! But first, let's remember the copyright notice that goes with them: Code Lyoko ™ © MoonScoop/ France 3 / Canal J – 2006. All rights reserved.
      
Along with these, Aelita di Agostino, who you'll know for her AMVs, has provided us with new renders that were cut out of different scans or images:
         
And finally, thanks also to Queen, who you'll know for the huge amount of work she's done on the site, for these renders below:
 



And just an additional note from the translator, a couple of translation updates on the site:
- First, the Graphic Bible has now been translated into English. The page scans haven't been touched and are still in French, but you'll find an English translation of the text just under the image gallery on the Graphic Bible page.
- Also, the translations of the official comics were in need of an update, so they've been redone with better editing and lettering and more coherent English translations. Due to technical difficulties we haven't yet been able to update the episode gallery pages with the new translations, but you can find all of the new pages in the ZIP download on the comics page.

And there you have it! That's all for today! Stay tuned for more findings very soon!

ReBoot VS Code Lyoko: the file
Posted by Dudu on 07/27/2019 at 16:23 (1 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hi everyone!

This summer, what could be more entertaining than diving back into your favourite TV series? Well...almost... If you were reading the site news last year, you may remember a post referencing a new live action series with a synopsis that's pretty close to our beloved series: ReBoot: The Guardian Code.
More than a year has passed since this series came out on streaming platform Netflix and today, to celebrate 15 years of codelyoko.fr, Icer, Ikorih and myself, with the help of Immu, have concocted a little file comparing the various similarities and differences between the ReBoot series and Code Lyoko.

You can find this file online in the appropriate section, or just below.


As for us, we wish you a good read and we'll see you again soon for new updates about the series right here on our site!

Have a nice day on Codelyoko.fr!

Code Lyoko on Amazon Prime
Posted by Queen on 07/20/2019 at 02:10 (0 commentaires)  Ecrire un commentaire sur cet article  Imprimer cet article  Envoyer cette article à un ami
Hi all,

Remember a while back when we announced that Dargaud had upscaled the episodes into HD? Well that English HD version has finally surfaced on Amazon's US streaming service! You can watch it for free if you have Amazon Prime, but you can't watch it at all if you don't have Prime. It's not even available for purchase. There's always the option to get a 30-day free trial of Prime if you really want to watch it but you don't want to pay for a Prime membership.

But for those of you who don't want to give any money to Amazon or its sleazebag CEO, allow me to try and ease your fear of missing out.

Code Lyoko was originally made in Standard Definition and not widescreen. When companies upscale old TV series into HD, rather than preserving the SD format, they sometimes choose to change the episodes to widescreen format because it's the format most media is in nowadays. They can either expand the shot lengthways, often giving us a view of things like filming equipment that really shouldn't be on screen; or they can crop the shot and sacrifice the top and bottom bits, often cropping out certain details. And Code Lyoko...is cropped.

SD - French DVD HD - Amazon
SD - English YouTube SD - French YouTube
Top left: French DVD SD version (from the Episode Guide) / Top right: Amazon HD version
Bottom left: English YouTube version / Bottom right: French YouTube version
Click to enlarge

As you can see, the screenshot from the Amazon Prime version of the episode is pretty crisp in quality despite being a larger image and it doesn't have black bars on the edges, but the top and bottom is cropped out so that it fits widescreen format. While it's nice to see the episodes in better quality, the cropping means that certain details will be missing from the episodes.

The other versions also look slightly stretched vertically in comparison to the HD episode. Of course, this is just a single screenshot from one episode and you'd really need to see more episodes to make a better comparison.
(Note: The episodes on YouTube, both French and English, occasionally suffer from muted colours like you see in the French version here. Most of the episodes are fine but sometimes you'll see these muted colours, especially in season 1.)

Still undeterred? Then go forth and watch Code Lyoko in good quality!



Is this the definitive official HD version of the series? Will it pop up on other streaming services? We'll just have to wait and see!

Thanks to Michael and semie78 for the information and screenshot!
Enjoy your day on CodeLyoko.fr Rigolant

Official voices are back!

Some of Code Lyoko official voices are back! And for nothing else than the most ambitiours fan project of the fanbase!
As a reminder, the Fictional Interface of Code Lyoko Supercomputer (IFSCL) is coming soon with its story mode!
There will be the exclusive VA and VF of Aelita, Jeremie, Franz (FR not official for Franz), bits of secondary characters from the series, and some more vocal surprises.
The story mode is mostly composed of interface gameplay, interactivity / movement in the real world, 3D cutscenes without voice.
The '2D cinematics' with limited animation are all with voices but rarer (Jeremy and Aelita have about 300 lines between them on the whole story mode, it's not huge but it's already luxurious), as well as the audio / video diaries (Franz Hopper and other surprises).

Without further ado, here's the update of the sequence 'FIREWORKS' already unveiled in 2018, and brought up to date in 2019, with cutscenes 3D without voice, and cine 2D with voice.
