I believe some GBA games (all?) use flashram to save their data. What other systems use is unknown to me.

Ok, now that the files are finally up, I can share them with everybody.

Four months ago, I had access to a DVD recorder which allowed me to do a run of FF1 to submit to SDA, but that would fall through after a while. No grudges, no drama, nothing like that. But since the run wasn't going to them, I figured it wasn't fair to anybody that wanted to see it and suddenly not get it (there's actually a history of canceled FF1 runs there). So, I decided to encode them myself.

It's been one fun adventure after another (dial-up sucks), but both runs are finally up and running. Beware Team Pandora!

When I finished those, I still had enough time to do a few other things (Radiata Stories, FF7, and FF9).

Last night I was presented with a challenge.

No upgrades (do Chill Penguin last).
No subtanks.
No hearts.

This is the result of the challenge. In the end, I wasn't able to complete it. I got as far as Sigma, but that final battle is just too tough to dodge stuff. Needs Zsnes v1.36, and v1.0 of the rom.

I believe a new version has been released.

:edit:

Yep, it has a new feature as well. It is "Hard mode," where instead of a screen counter at the top of the screen, it's a timer to get from one transporter to another. It starts out at 90 seconds, and I'm not sure if that amount decreases as you get farther or not. When you die, the results screen shows the number of screens you got as usual.

:edit:

Yeah, looks like some time is taken off after every boss you beat. :eek:

As a demonstration, I made a movie of it. The date isn't set, though I suspect it'll be for October 21st (tomorrow!?)

Haven't seen any new screens yet, and the black and white ones are still in black and white.

:edit:

Fixed the date.

Well, another movie based on the October 18th patch. My new personal best is now 171. :childish: Took me a while to get it, though. I thought I was really screwed against the second boss. :blush:

Ok, I've finally figured out how to get through that new evil gravity room. For those that don't know what I'm referring to, it's this:



"But that's the old one!"

Very true, it's not until you get to this point where it starts to get different:



"So how do I tell them apart?"

Until you get to that point, there's no way to.

"So how do I get across?"

By watching this.

This requires the version labeled October 18th.

:edit:

If you feel the arrow is too much of a gamble, there is a Rush version available.

:edit:

And now a new demonstration of October 18th. I achieve my new personal best pretty early in the movie, and after the umpteenth attempt, I finally beat that freaking train of a boss. :childish: Ugh, he does indeed suck.

With the one dated October 16th, I have a new movie. New evil tendencies with the gravity rooms... Overall I believe I see 2 new rooms. I also beat my personal best for screen total by going over 100. :happy:

Got another attempt at MM3, and I am getting better at it. Now I can make it as far as redux stage 4 before getting a game over. :blush: Don't read too much into that, though, since I died all over the place, and the game kept pumping out extra lives at me. Eventually I'm going to own this like I own MMX1 (Zsnes v1.36!) which naturally comes with a lot of practice and elbow grease. :laugh:

Two more runs. This one is for v1.01, since I wasn't aware that v1.02  had been released yet. This one is for v1.02. Enjoy and critique away.

The new custom stages have what looks to be a preliminary tileset, just black and white, but the screens themselves are still fun to play.
I've come across two of them, but one of them is not original (but I'm happy where it was taken from). :happy:

I plan on throwing an archive page on Dbi so anyone who wants to can watch the old movies. Did anyone happen to hold onto the original archive 1.0 came in? This new version has a readme, 1.01 didn't, I want to be sure 1.0 didn't either.
No, I deleted mine long ago. :wedge: I do still have the old versions patched, though (like that helps).

With the new version out, I made two more runs. Honestly, my lack of knowledge of the game does show. The only reason I know a weakness or so is because of memory of watching the movies DKK's posting. :isuck:

Ahhh well. :happy:

:edit:

These videos were recorded with the October 13th version.

I want to see you guys make a few attempts at this too.

* Lenophis takes a shot at it.

Tonight's the first night I've really played MM5, so forgive the rookie mistakes (please?). :shadow:

:edit:

This video was recorded with the October 12th version.

Now, now, now. Why are the inmates fighting amongst themselves? :sad:

But I suppose the truth should be told...














Well, they did make General Leo a full character(Though it's not known how you'll get his ass back from the dead.).
And if you think we're gonna just let that out you're beyond crazy. :tongue: I will give you a hint, though. You need to fight 27,000 battles with Leafers! :whoa:

One of the better actors of a couple generations has died. Those that had some say had been downplaying his declining health, insisting he would make a full recovery.
1925 - 2008. Rest in peace.
