Some of his more prevalent Flash works:
Flashes submitted by MurrayEdit
- On 6th June 2006, Murray submitted his fourth flash Bahamut N' Satan 666 to celebrate the special day. This is Murray's first spoof flash.
- On 10th June, Murray submitted his first ATWI80D spoof, Bahamut: ATIO80W 01. Murray enjoyed watching each Adolf Hitler: ATWI80D flash that Afro_Stud submitted and when Adolf Hitler: ATIO80W was submitted, Murray was inspired to make a spinoff of ATIO80W. In Bahamut: ATIO80W 01, Murray uses Speakonia voices to say a list of websites that "absolutely suck balls" as said on the flash, although this was not serious at all. Murray explained that he was too lazy to record his own voice mentioning 80 websites.
- On June 26th, Murray submitted Bahamut: ATWI80D 01. Just like Bahamut: ATIO80W, Murray uses Speakonia for himself and one of his best friends on Newgrounds, Andersson. Murray was going to use real voices for this flash, but he wasn't too happy with how his voice sounded like and Andersson never bothered to record the voices of him for this flash.
- On July 20th, Bahamut: ATIO80W 02 was submitted. Murray started working on this flash when he found out that ATWI80D 48 was flagged. Although Afro_Stud did submit Adolf Hitler: ATIO80W 03 which explained the whistle FAQ, Murray did explain the whistle FAQ in his flash as well and wanted to give everyone a message that flashes like B and the ATWI80D series make Newgrounds a very interesting place. Also, Bahamut: ATIO80W 02 is Murray's lowest rated flash that he has submitted.
- On October 21st, Bahamut: ATWI80D 02 was submitted to celebrate the day that Adolf Hitler: ATWI80D 80 was submitted. This flash was going to be submitted right after Adolf Hitler: ATWI80D 80 would be submitted, but Afro_Stud decided to submit this at about 4:50AM GMT, so Murray just submitted his flash as soon as he knew ATWI80D 80 was going to be submitted that late.
- On 8th December, Murray submitted yet another ATWI80D spoof, Bahamut: ATWI80D 03. This flash continues the Bahamut: ATWI80D story. Murray said Afro_Stud was to submit a special edition of Adolf Hitler: ATWI80D on this day, but there wasn't a flash submitted by Afro_Stud that day. This is the last episode of Bahamut: ATWI80D according to the very end of the flash saying that there will not be a Bahamut: ATWI80D 04.
- On Clock Day 2005, Murray submitted his second flash :. According to Murray, he didn't bother to complete this flash, because he saw all the flashes submitted on Clock Day passing, so he decided to stop working on the flash and just submit the flash. The flash ends with Sonic spinning. This flash created some controversy with Murray and the Star Syndicate when KJClock (GrandfatherClock's alt) posted on the BBS the very high score of a Clock Day flash and accusing Murray of mass voting.
- There is a sequel to this flash, which was submitted on Clock Day 2006. The sequel is known as `. Murray says this flash is a tribute to his unfinished flash : and is also a tribute to Meatspin, because of the spin counter. Also, Murray said he will make another flash on Clock Day 2007 which continues the unfinished Sonic vs Mario battle.
- On Clock Day 2006, Murray also submitted Bahamut v StrawberryClock, which was originally going to be named "KILL BAHAMUT! 01", but Murray said he got too lazy to make a whole series of it and just submitted that flash he completed sometime in June, since it contained StrawberryClock, and Murray thought it would be a good idea to submit that flash to celebrate Clock Day. Bahamut v StrawberryClock is one of the very few flashes by Murray that so far has been placed in a Collection.
- On Anti-Clock Day 2006 (26th August), Murray submitted StrawberryClock v Bahamut which is very similar to Bahamut v StrawberryClock, but made the ending to StrawberryClock v Bahamut is completely opposite to the ending of Bahamut v StrawberryClock.
Space Dragon 2007Edit
Murray has been co-authored to most of Afro_Stud's flash submissions including all the Adolf Hitler: ATWI80D flash movies. Other than Afro_Stud's flashes, Murray has been co-authored on:
- Dead or Alive Hentai Quiz - Afro_Stud's first flash he submitted and has co-authored Murray, although Murray didn't contribute to the quiz. Some people have confused this flash as something Murray made instead of Afro_Stud.
- Bahamut N' koreaman 01 - A single frame flash which contains a photoshopped screenshot of Murray's and koreaman's posts. Afro_Stud says koreaman is Murray's alt account, but Murray claims otherwise.
- HAPPY CLOCKDAY 2006!1! - A flash submitted by one of Murray's friends on Newgrounds. Like Dead or Alive Hentai Quiz, this has confused some people to thinking this was a flash that Murray submitted. (and that is not possible since this flash was submitted at least 2 hours after the flashes Murray submitted on Clock Day 2006).
Activity on Newgrounds Edit
Murray has been an active user on Newgrounds with high stats for EXP, B/P, Posts and flash reviews. Murray's pace on B/P'ing has remained about the same for the 2 years he has been on Newgrounds being content to have his total B/P at 77,777. His amount of posting on the BBS has greatly slowed down compared to how many posts he was making a day in 2005. He usually posts in the General, Where is/How to? and Clubs & Crews forums. He has been an active reviewer in the past, but does not review very often now and only makes a few reviews to keep his review count at 1000.
Murray is also noted for keeping track of several stat related threads including: The Top 2000 Exp Users, B/P Ranks 51+, Top 10,000+ Exp / B-P / Post List, and as well as the Wi/Ht? RCVL and Wi/Ht? Membership Lists.
He keeps Newgrounds Stats on his website- a Pentalist of people who have over 10K in two or more from set of five statistics and a list of everyone with over 8000 experience points.
Murray against the Star Syndicate Edit
In the past, the Star Syndicate have attacked Murray on the BBS quite a lot of times. The rivalry started in March 2005 when Wade Fulp lifted review bans. GrandfatherClock posted in Wade's news thread on the matter, and Murray told him that he was writing abusive reviews. Murray then reported GrandfatherClock's abusive reviews to the abusive reviews thread. GrandfatherClock and Murray were arguing in the thread until ramagi broke the argument up.
A few days later, ZeroStar made a thread about Murray's old LiveJournal. There have been a lot of other threads about Murray which were created by the Star Syndicate . There were also alt accounts whose names were targetted at Murray ut such as Bahamut8, Bahamut6 (which is now named SixStar) and Fagamut7 (now a vagrant, but the original alt with that name was renamed and the account was eventually deleted).
From March 2006 to present, Murray has not had much attention from the Star Syndicate.
