I though that Chinese wasn't a language, and that Mandarin was the official language of China. Might have been my imagination.

I know the DS version of the Ace Attorney trilogy is very faithful to the GBA originals, yet they are not 100% faithful. The interface changed a lot and so did the music. Only the first case of the third game has been translated in english, and I belive it's more enjoyable than the DS version!

How hard would it be to insert the english, french or german script from the DS version in the GBA originals? There seems to be already existing tools to deal with the DS version, but they're quite unusable/incomplete.

Also unfortunately it is DOS and won't work on Win 8.1/10 I remember it from back in the day though, was great tool.
Just use DOSBox.

How does removing the encounters from Final Fantasy IX make it a "spoof" ?!

I'm looking towards to play Spooniest's hack if I ever want to play FF2 ever again.

The best tool for that is BGMAPPER. Unfortunately is is not embedded into an emulator - rather you should take a ZSNES save state at the moment you want to observe, and open the save state in BGMAPPER.

Another tool is BSNES debug (2009), it's not nearly as complete and is outdated since the release of Higan - which unfortunately dropped support for debug features.

In addition to what has already been suggested, I'd recommand Esper Dream II. I'm currently in a playthrough of it and although it's not a flawless game by any measure, it has the good point of being very original (no medieval-fantasy, no "save the princess", no random encounters ...)
There's also that hack for the chinese FF7 demake.
Hmmm, he said good. Didn't play the hack but the "original" chineese is awful beyond imagination. If the hack really makes it that good then it is quite an achievement from its author.

Some glitches makes the game easier. For instance the possibility to knee and move by double-tapping a direction on 2D levels is very useful, as well as the possibility to avoid rockets in Volksmire's Inferno by staying quietly in one of the screen's corner - actually that's the only way I found to beat the level, so much those rockets are fast and impossible to avoid.

All it takes is a little bit of coding and figuring out what absolutely needs to be saved into the file.
Since the game already uses passwords, it would be simple to simply copy the password into the save RAM. Of course this is only one of the possible approaches.

Not only it is possible but it has already be done.

However this is up to opinions, but the advantage of passwords is that you can note down many of them simultaneously without losing any of them, with saves usually this implies overwriting a previous save file.

I start every day with two mugs of fresh milk with Ovomaltine. I can't even imagine starting a day otherwise. In some cases I'll also drink a glass of fruit juice, but that do not replace the milk, but precede it.

If you want to see just how stupid and uncivil people can be in this sort of environment just check the comments on ANY youtube video. LOL It doesn't matter if it's politics, a drum solo, a speedrun or even videos of cute kittens. Someone will always show up just to be like "Oh yeah? Well, you're an idiot and everything you say, do and love is stupid. Please die. Thank you".
I just quote this because it is SO TRUE! The awfulness of Youtube comments is really something. The problem is that in some cases there could be helpful comments, but they'll be sworn in a wave of unrelated flame war comments about something unrelated.

Now @ Spooniest. First of all you are a free man and do what you want with your life. I will give you some advice, you are free to take it, or to think I'm an idiot and ignore it (but don't reply to explicitly tell me I'm an idiot, thanks, I already know :) )

I might get a wrong impression, but I feel like you're being terribly bored in life and pass too much time on those forums. You also seem to take those forums as your personal blog, making a new general-topic thread every day about something partially or completely unrelated with romhacking. I've avoided participation in such thread, but was constantly thinking to myself "oh my god what this guy is doing". People there, for the most part, do not care about your real life, and are there to discuss romhacking or related topics. As someone already pointed out, the less technical and focus is a thread, the most likely it is to be "noisy" and look like youtube comments (and that's a terrible thing)

So my recommendation to fix the problem is to find another occupation in life, and keep on those forums mostly to discus romhacking and technical things.

Last but not least, you accuse other people to make cryptic posts, but I have caught you doing very cryptic posts also, and I won't come back on your very negative reaction when I pointed this out.

Be careful not to just focus on your little, tiny part of the planet, though.  Global Warming / Climate Change is about the average temperature of the globe.  Although you experienced hot weather this summer, I've been having relatively cool (coolest I can remember in the past 11 years) weather where I live.
You are right, however, this summer is incredibly hot, it broke all records since they began in the early 1800 and even the previous heat and dry records of the 2003 and 1921 summers were beaten.

The grass turned all yellow and most rivers are partially or completely dried out, this was never ever observed before. In addition, a major river that didn't dry out saw its water temperature increase from 15° to 27°, causing death of the majority of the fishes that were living there. Pehaps this will sut up people who repeatedly says there is nothing wrong with the climate and how the humans are sacking the environment, but somehow I feel that they'll find yet another excuse to continue to behave like they do since capitalism, growth and marketing is so popular.

Oh my, if I was making a thread every day where I don't touch games, I'd have to do so at least 4 days a week. If your addiction to games is so strong it's such an exceptional event then I'd consider to consult a psychologist.

Glad I'm not the only one to have noticed how retarded the overall level of Youtube comments is so low. It's just incredible.

Even without the scientists it doesn't take much of a brain to notice the climate is warming, where I live this summer is particularly deadly with temperatures above 30° most days for an entiere month, including many days above 35° (normally temperature hardly ever goes above 25°), there has not been any rain for 40 days and the grass is all yellow, it's the first time I see that here in my entiere life (I have however seen that in other countries, such as southern France).

Well, just opera. When I say "about" it just says it's Opera 30.0. There is no classic or whatsoever in the name.

The Secret of Mana MSU1 hack is quite messed up. Some songs are great remixes but don't go at all with the timing within the game (intro theme), others are just records of the SNES version, and others are terrible. Some are metal remixes which are totally out of place, such as the boss theme, others are fine but were just too much altered as opposed to the ingame original. And worse of all, the music is way too loud so that sound effects can't be heard anymore, but some songs are much louder than others, forcing you to turn the volume knob constantly.

In all, this is a great idea but very poorly executed, especially considering I've offered my help on the matter. I'm pretty confident one of the song is one of my MIDIs, so even though they tried to avoid me they (probably) couldn't.

Seeing in films, games and all kind of media how easy it is to charge someone else for a murder, I believe murderers do this in real life, and I doubt that in all cases the police can figure the truth.

I do not care how frequent or infrequent this is, but executing someone who was innocent is the state committing a murder against their citizens, and as such, is absolutely unacceptable from a modern democracy in my opinion. That's why I say I recommend living in a state without death penalty, if you live in a state with a death penalty not only you encounter the risk of being executed while being innocent, but also you pay taxes there and thus fund murders of people, including a portion of innocent people.

Then again every time we're buying something "Made in China" we're funding murdering of innocent people in China by the Chinese government and their communist party.

One time I was frisked because I was filming a movie and me and my friends looked like terrorists
I believe it's preferable to take contact to the police in advance and saying you're going to run such a scene. Just in case of.

Best way to prevent it, ALWAYS HAVE AN ALIBI. You cant have done the crime if you are somewhere else doing something else.
Great, technically, we always have an alibi, it's just that there is not necessary someone seeing us. So this would mean you should never ever be alone, which honestly sounds like a very hard thing to accomplish. I won't even explore the case where you're with only one person and that he betrays you, or with even more than one person for that matter.

The hell with FF3's remake to the point where I won't touch the NES version, though!
The NES version is infinitely superior. I tried the DS version and couldn't even do the 2nd dungeon without grinding like crazy. Belive it or not, the NES version is not like that, it requires really few grinding (the main exception being near the last dunegon).

How could you even beat this game legitimately? I tried at least 4 times from scratch and always found myself stuck in an unwinnable situation somewhere, where "weak" monsters would give me no gold nor stat increases, but where "strong" monsters would beat the crap on me.

The SNES cpu runs between about 2.4 and 3.5 mhz. Compare that to even notebook processors in 1989, which were running between 20 and 25.
This comparison is totally meaningless. It's like comparing the weight of a Martian on mars to the weight of an human on earth. (besides, if I am not mistaken, "notebook" is a term that didn't come before the 2000s, so there was no notebooks in 1989. If you mean IBM PC clones, then yeah, guess what they are so different from the SNES any kind of comparison is impossible)

I feel sorry for whoever had to come up with such a horrid syntax.
This is just your particular opinion. The syntax does not make a CPU superior or inferior, just more or less annoying to code for. I have never coded in 65c816 assembly so I have no idea how good or bad it is, but I can say I like the 6502 really well, although it has it's shortcomings.

What exactly is a "good" target for C?
A CPU with
* Orthogonal instruction set and registers, so it's easier to allocate registers and select instructions when generating code
* Few addressing modes, so it's easy to select instructions for accessing memory
* Consistent size of registers and memory

The 65c816 has none of the above.

It's been suggested that the particular choice of SNES architecture indicates that Nintendo was kind of hopeful about having backwards compatibility with the NES,
They definitely had that in mind.

Never saw the Sega propaganda on that. The specs are rather clear on this matter, the SNES had indeed a cheap CPU.
Did you even read the debate I linked to and the conclusions that were driven there?
