This is an announcement of sorts. Lately, Yahoo mail has been worse and worse in terms of service and in annoyance. I had been using their service for the better part of 10 years, but now I've reached my breaking point. This obviously puts a hamper on submitting stuff to the site, so I've set up an email account to handle that. The new account is subWOWHOWIDUDATmissionITSLOLLIKEatWTFTHISISAWESOMEslickAHAHAHAHAHAprodZOMGuctionsALLYOURBASEAREBELONGTOUSdotorg. All of that is to throw off the spammers. Do not send large emails, else I'll be likely to start blocking it.

Also, :bored:

General Discussion / I'm fragged!
« on: July 24, 2009, 07:01:26 PM »
Somebody took a plasma gun, shot me to death, and then this happened. F wasn't as bad, that took about 7 minutes to do. C took about 20. I started E at 6 am this morning, and it's still going (paused for the rest of the night, will resume when I sleep again) and is still 37% fragged. :omg:

I know it's been a while, but damn...

Gaming Discussion / Lookie what arrived in my inbox today
« on: July 22, 2009, 01:50:49 PM »
Think Square's hyping up Dissidia any?

The sad part? I can't identify everybody. :isuck: What I do know, left to right, top to bottom: dunno, Cecil (I think), Squall, Zidane, FF1 knight, Terra, Tidus, dunno, dunno, Cloud, dunno, dunno, dunno, dunno, Kefka, Garland (I think), Sephiroth, Ultimecia, Kuja, Jecht.

Anybody actually going to get it when it's out?

General Discussion / Steve McNair is dead
« on: July 04, 2009, 03:51:02 PM »
:eek:

"Fatal gunshot wound" is what it's being called.

For those that don't know, he led the Tennessee Titans to their only Super Bowl appearance (they lost that game to the Rams). RIP Steve.

She died earlier today of cancer at 62. Best remembered for the one year of Charlie's Angels.

This happened rather suddenly. Suffered a heart attack. He was 50 years old.

Gaming Discussion / SNES gamers, rejoice

And by rejoice, I really mean rejoice. Although, those at the Zsnes board aren't nearly as impressed by it.

General Discussion / Leno's farewell
« on: May 30, 2009, 04:23:25 AM »
Tonight I watched Jay Leno's final episode, and I gotta tell you that I think Conan's final ep for Late Night was much better. Conan went way way more into thanking everybody that helped launched him, and Jay just did a bunch of reminiscing. Did anybody else watch it?

General Discussion / NHL playoffs
« on: April 13, 2009, 09:25:19 PM »
The quest for Lord Stanley's Cup this post-season has begun.

Western Conference:
Flames (5) vs Blackhawks (4) - Blackhawks win series 4-2
Blue Jackets (7) vs Red Wings (2) - Red Wings win series 4-0
Blues (6) vs Canucks (3) - Canucks win series 4-0
Ducks (8) vs Sharks (1) - Ducks win series 4-2

Eastern Conference:
Flyers (5) vs Penguins (4) - Penguins win series 4-2
Rangers (7) vs Capitals (2) - Capital win series 4-2
Hurricanes (6) vs Devils (3) - Hurricanes win series 4-2
Canadiens (8) vs Bruins (1) - Bruins win series 4-0

Of note, this is the Blue Jackets first ever playoff appearance. The President's Cup winner historically doesn't fare well, with the exception being the Red Wings last year.

Personally, it's nice to see some fresh bloo....er, talent in the pool this year. :happy:

:edit:

Round 2 east:

Hurricanes (6) vs Bruins (1) - Hurricanes win series 4-3
Penguins (4) vs Capitals (2) - Penguins win series 4-3

Round 2 west:

Blackhawks (4) vs Canucks (3) - Blackhawks win series 4-2
Ducks (8) vs Red Wings (1) - Red Wings win series 4-3

I think those are the west matchups, anyway. :isuck:

:edit:

Round 3 east (conference finals):

Hurricanes (6) vs Penguins (4) - Penguins win series 4-0

Round 3 west (conference finals):

Blackhawks (4) vs Red Wings (1) - Red Wings win series 4-1

Madness!

Slick News / Much NSFE news
« on: March 30, 2009, 10:02:24 PM »
Due to circumstances mostly out of my control, I had been unable to update the NSFE's sent in over the last couple of weeks. Naturally, they built up, almost to the point where it was insurmountable. However, with sanity returning the NSFEs were taken care of.

All of that babble you just read means that bucky sent in a few NSFEs for fixing, a bunch more new ones. Also, Teppic sent in Robin Hood, Anticipation, and an update to Rollergames which I almost typed as Rollerball 3 times. :isuck:

In addition to the NSFEs, two documents were updated, both for FF6. The C3 bank saw massive updates from C3/0406 to C3/F000 (or thereabouts). That range is exclusively for the ending, and much more still needs commenting.

Good times.

Gaming Discussion / Your game isn't expensive!
« on: March 18, 2009, 03:34:16 PM »
Interesting story. I just returned from Gamestop, where I had to return a copy of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes my brother had just bought for me on Monday. The disc was getting constant read errors at the title screen. I got as far as making a save on my memory card before ultimately giving up. Luckily my brother had the thought of giving me the receipt in case something goes wrong. So, I go up there and look for another copy of Echoes, which they did not have. I spent about an hour looking through the collection of stuff, and I come across Marvel vs Capcom 2. I saw the price and did a spit-take, then took it up to the counter and asked them if it was a typo.

"No, that's no typo. The game is extremely rare."

The price? $79.99, used. :picsorstfu: Seriously, if I had a camera, I'd have taken a picture for you guys to see. It's that outrageous.

He was slightly older than I thought he was (62). Rest in peace.

Slick News / Pandora's Box 3rd Anniversay
« on: February 14, 2009, 02:09:35 AM »

We're back, and we have news! Pandora's Box is now in its third year of development. During the past two years, there have been many features implemented. The list includes restoration of the game's button configuration screen, a music box, Strago learning magic the way he should have, and then some.

We've also dabbled into many engine tweaks, the first and most prominent of them being a complete overhaul of the physical damage formula. This change is part of the massive balance overhaul we are still doing. Other engine tweaks include some additions to the battle and engine cores, as well. To get an idea of those changes, you can view the playlist set up at Youtube.

With a balance overhaul also comes many bug fixes, and in fact many bug fixes. To keep some sanity, a complete list of bug fixes was put together at Mnrogar's Den. These bugs are being fixed to level the playing field on both sides. This will no doubt cause some gripes, but the only thing I can say to that is “if you want to play the broken system, play the broken game.”

But, enough about the past. We're here to stay positive, and talk about the future. And that future is now. So, what's new? To mark the occasion, we are proud to show another new feature recently implemented, a Doom Gaze radar (this is 60 megs!). This radar works like how you would expect a radar to work. If you get close to Doom Gaze, he will show up on the minimap. It will make finding him to be much easier than it ever was. Note, a Youtube version of this movie was made, but the quality of it turned out to be bad enough that the minimap was far too grainy to show off what this did. It has since been removed. Various and numerous attempts were also made to get the filesize of this movie down to a respectable level, but all attempts also made the minimap too grainy to show off this new feature.

“Use a screenshot, fool!”

That won't show you how or when it works, despite anybody's best efforts to do so. Either bite the bullet and download or simply ignore it. And yes, as a dialup user, this is a very hard thing for me to say, but I'm at wit's end about this.

Anyway, another new feature, though not nearly as flashy or even as fancy, is one that will make dialogue nice. For whatever reason, Final Fantasy 6 never had a center tag, it instead used a tab tag. Well, we decided that the tab tag needed to go. In its place, a center tag. Ok, crappy job of building that one up.

Those that have been in RHDN's IRC channel may have noticed me continuously bugging everybody for possible ideas that we could implement into the hack. Gemini did step forward with one, an item that will increase encounter rates. Specifically, this will double the encounter rate. A perfect gift for all of the masochistic grinders out there.

Finally, there's something we've been wanting to show off for a while now. Earlier in development we toyed with changing some of the character spritesheets. One such example was a revision to Mog. We have since expanded on that, giving some alterations to Celes and Edgar.

On a sad note, I am reluctant to announce that I do not believe we'll be able to get anymore new music into the hack. Those that have assisted in the past seemed to have moved on to bigger and better things. To counter this, some have suggested that we learn the inner workings of the SPC700 to get more songs in. However, we feel that delaying the project for another many months to learn the chip just to get a few more songs in is not worth it.

To wrap this up, I'll say that we hope that 2009 will be the final year of development. I won't put a date on when we'll be done, because adding pressure will not ensure quality. We thank those that have been patient with us during this project's development.
