General Discussion / The Future Is Going to Look Like Tron

This is probably old news for some of you. But anyway...

General Discussion / I Need Photos of Your Grandmothers - STAT!
« on: December 29, 2013, 11:56:56 pm »
Seriously. :o

I am near completion of an animated music video, & I'd like to finish it by (this) New Year's Eve. The song is a tribute by Jason Newman to his Grandma. You can see project details over there -> http://some.shit/idon'tcare

So anyway, near the end of the video I want to have a montage of drawings of people's grandmothers before it shows the late Barbara Fenton (Jason's grandma). I won't be using the actual photos in the video, just drawings.

Here's how my drawing style looks like (this is just a sketch, though):

By the way, I know I can just go on Google & download a bunch of images, but I have two issues with that:

1.) I'd like to get consent from whoever's photo it is (even though I'm turning them into drawings anyway)
2.) I'd rather use photos from people I somewhat know instead of complete strangers (who may not even be grandmothers, & instead be posing for a stock photo)

Thank you all & happy new year! :)

How about adding each other as contacts?

We're all professionals here. Shouldn't we have a substantially solid network of talent? Inundating with intense ingenuity and innovation? Beyond compare to the typical fools whom we scold on a daily basis? >:D

It would be a crime for us not to join together! :o

Sadly, all these years I've only had 1 contact, & that's Leon! I'm sure there's at least two people here with a LinkedIn account?

I hope this kind of topic doesn't break da rules!

Edit: My Email

General Discussion / Desert Bus for Hope 6
« on: November 20, 2012, 06:44:55 pm »
I'm sure many of you here already know what this is, but for anyone who doesn't, here's the synopsis:

-you donate $
-bunch of Canadians play Desert Bus depending on how much $$ is being raised
-because game is boring, Canadians do weird things act like themselves while on the live feed (also to raise $$$.
-$$$$ goes straight to Child's Play charity

So far, Loading Ready Run has raised over $1 million lifetime! :o

Linkity Link:

By the way, spreading this message is my contribution for not having any $ this year. :-\

Gaming Discussion / How Do You Feel About Prerelease Translation Patches?
« on: October 01, 2012, 07:38:30 pm »
Pokémon White 2 & Black 2 will be released this month. With that said, the Japanese version has not only been dumped since June, but a translation patch has been available just as long (never mind that this post is over 3 months late!).

I don't know about the rest of you, but I always felt there was an unwritten rule about not translating a work that we know will be released in our language soon (at least with animé).

Isn't it this kind of romhacking behavior that lumps us all into the 'raging pirate' category & prompts companies into putting in unnecessary (or is it necessary now, thanks alot!) antipiracy measures & region lockout into the software?

Some no-lives just can't wait & go out of their way to make a not-yet-released game public so other no-lives can be happy. And within four days?! :o Do people really have nothing better to do?

ROM Hacking Discussion / Little Nemo - Morningstar Hack (Help Needed)
« on: September 24, 2012, 11:47:52 am »
Anyone who's played Little Nemo notices the Morningstar sceptor on Nemo's back, but it doesn't come into play until Stage 8: Nightmare Land... OMFGlazyCapcom!

Anyway, my intention is to allow the Morningstar to be used as a bludgeoning weapon from stage 1, but cannot be charged until reaching stage 8.

I found the value that indicates what stage Nemo can use the Morningstar:

01D510: 07 <- change that to '00' & now the game is horribly easy :D

I also found the values that indicate the Morningstar's max power & charge beam sound:

00EF15 - 60 <- change that to '00' & now Nemo can't charge
01A862 - 02 <- change that to 'FF' & now there's no indication whatsoever that the Morningstar can charge

Here's where my expertise comes to an end.

I still need the Morningstar to be able to charge upon reaching stage 8, & I know this will require some Jump routines to fit in the extra code to check what stage the player is on. And with my limited ASM skills, I've tried doing this but can't make heads or tails of the results (game crashing, nothing happening, etc.)

Can anyone lend me a hand/do this whole thing for me? :D

Site Talk / Videos Instead of Images
« on: July 19, 2012, 10:40:48 pm »
While submitting a sound-only hack, I was prompted to supply an image. I've seen hacks without images before, so this caught me off-guard. In a haste, I uploaded a title screen image even though nothing's different about it.

Would it be feasible to allow uploading of short video clips instead of images for sound/gameplay hacks that can't be represented with still images?

Or any kind of Compact Presario?

For the longest time, my brother had screen issues where the display would glitch up every time the hinge was adjusted. So he backed up the files before we'd take it in to get repaired.

While my brother was backing files up to a hard drive, he left the computer unplugged & it went to sleep mode. When he turned it back on, he got an I/O error. Now whenever he turns it on, he gets this message: "Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer" even though nothing external is plugged in... "An unexpected I/O error has occurred." (thankfully, his files back up successfully)

Now the real problem is that he can't set his computer to factory default. Whenever he tries to from the laptop's HD, the above message displays. Whenever he tries from a system repair disc, the computer stops responding. He gets the menu screen, but none of the menu options show up.

I searched Google & found other people had this problem but found no solutions yet. If there is a simple answer, I'd like to find out before paying a professional to fix this.

...so which translation should I download?


Or should I look into this U.S. bug-fix?

I'm a bit of a purist, so I'm hesitant to try the DS port. Is there any reason to play the original over that re-release?

I look forward to your vast wealth of Square/Enix transliteration knowledge! :D

ROM Hacking Discussion / Rockman 2 Editor - Moving the Boss Room
« on: March 05, 2012, 01:13:26 am »
I can't quite figure out how editing objects work on this. :-\

The English tutorial barely explains anything.

What I'm trying to do is take advantage of the unused rooms to make the level longer, so I need to move whatever triggers the boss. Is it possible to do that with this editor?

I may be 2 years late to the party here, but this is the first time I've seen this:

While conducting research for my paper

Y'know when you're fighting a robot master, or something, & you almost beat them, but then suddenly you run out of weapon energy & you die? And even worse... you still have 2 lives left! :o So there's, like, no way you're going to win, because you suck at Mega Man 2 >:D & need a certain weapon.

To the point...

I'm trying to hack the pointers so weapon energy is filled up as well as health between deaths.

I found what I'm looking for:

80C6: 8D C0 06 <- I change C0 06 to 00 9C to refill Heat Man's weapon, 00 9D for Air Man, etc.

But with this method, I can only modify one weapon - I need to refill everything! Anyone do anything like this before? Have any of the Mega Man hacks done this?

General Discussion / Hot Sauce Aficionados
« on: January 18, 2012, 07:10:09 pm »
To all salsa picante lovers out there: let us join together & share our vast collection of hot spicy knowledge & enlighten the world!

& a brief optional questionaire...

Do you:
1. Carry hot sauce on-the-go?
2. Mix hot sauce with other condiments?
3. Pour the hot sauce on before you eat, or dab on more with every bite?

Is it easier for you to:
4. Name food items you don't put hot sauce on rather than naming everything you do put it on?

Have you ever:
5. Shipped/Have had hot sauce shipped to you?

6. What is your stance on Heinz® Chili Sauce?

ROM Hacking Discussion / Toilet Mario
« on: December 25, 2011, 09:22:16 pm »
Has anyone managed to get this romhack to work?

I patched it to a verified good dump of SMB (JU) & it freezes on the title screen on whatever emulator I use (FCEU/X/SP, Nestopia, NESten & for some reason Nintendulator has stopped working :-\).

Even already patched roms have this problem.

General Discussion / Flashplayer Problem on Thesaurus.com
« on: October 21, 2011, 01:32:35 am »
Every time I visit Thesaurus.com, I will receive this message:

Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation.

The following local application on your computer or network:


is trying to communicate with this Internet-enabled location:


To let this application communicate with the Internet, click Settings.
You must restart the application after changing your settings

And freezes my browser for about 30 seconds until Firefox blocks it.

Anybody else have this problem & know how to fix it? :-\

Gaming Discussion / Standalone Consoles Being Phased Out Says Rob Enderle
« on: October 19, 2011, 04:40:51 pm »
Read the last topic:


I agree that consoles will be are already more like entertainment systems, but when was the last time you remember a console built into the TV set?

Vectrex anyone? >:D

Aside from having different music, what else has changed between the Famicom & NES port?

Is the English script a faithful translation from its Japanese counterpart?

Here's the text from the first Guru as an example:

◇ がうがんだ ◇ のやまには ◇ げるろぜお ◇ へのいりぐちがある。


General Discussion / Briefcase Turned All My Files into Read Only!
« on: September 24, 2011, 10:39:11 pm »
I decided to make a briefcase so all the files on my portable hard drive will sync with one click.

But now, for some reason, all those files are not permanently read only! :o

Not only that, but now anything even associated with those files & folders (copied, created in same folder) become read only!

I copied the files, deleted the briefcase, & formatted my drive, but nothing worked. :-\

What have I done? :'(

General Discussion / How Well is Windows 7 Back Up Feature?
« on: July 04, 2011, 08:35:53 pm »
Without putting much thought into it, I've been using Windows 7's built in feature to back up my files on an external hard drive.

But lately I've been wondering if it works well.  I've never had to restore my computer using a back up image, & I have to ask: will my laptop run exactly as it was before I restored it?  I regularly do back ups once a week & copy everything under C:/

Another question: Do back up images on an external hard drive overwrite themselves on that drive, or is another created on top of that?  I ask because I'll run a back up & the next week run another back up & notice that there's significantly less space left on my drive! :o  And in fear that there will be not significant space left to run another back up, I'll delete the entire drive & start over again. :-\ I'm hopelessly confused on this one.

I really want to get this all sorted out before anything bad happens to my laptop.
