Ok, two new movies for the October November 2nd update. The first is a showing of the normal, which isn't all that impressive.

Then there's the one for hard mode. This one I will dub "The Adventures of the Wily Stages," since I swear that's all I had for a while there. I also encounter the newest laser room the most of any rooms out there (as opposed to the newer evil gravity room, which I believe I saw once entirely). This movie has it all, a very strong start, a blooper reel, and a very strong finish. :happy: Trust me, you'll know when you get to the bloopers. :isuck:

I don't even remember if Zsnes even allowed savestate loading during movie recording. There were serious enough desync issues with it, that they probably didn't want to risk it (Deathlike should be able to clarify this). If they did allow it, I'm sure the savestates used would need to be sent along with the movie.

No idea on Snes9x, the only movie recording I do with it is the occasional avi. And that's only done with the tracer because the regular versions don't like when I try to set controls to what I like.

On top of that, the last button must always be 01, since that is A. Beyond that, you should be good to go.

what is the difference between a header and no-header rom
Essentially a difference in file size. Many roms back in the day were dumped with copiers, and the copiers attached 512 bytes to the beginning of the rom to give various info. Most of the time, it'll be mostly or all zeroes. In the end, the headers themselves are useless. Some programs depend on them though (especially the older ones) because at the time nobody knew the difference.

To check, simply open the file in a hex editor and go to the end of the rom. If the file address reads 0xXX0200, then the rom has a header.

And I make an attempt with the October 25th version. Quick Man's stage is a bit evil. :sad:


Made one on hard mode, and this time I think I have a beat on Quick Man's stage. Nothing impressive though. :isuck:

i have a shit load of ideas and i'm going to right them here. dont laugh. if you guys would like to tkae my ideas and incoporate them to your own useage etc just give me credit!:
  • Want to change the opening logo instead the original ones that came on the SNES and PSX

I hope you're smart enough to not want credit for something that already exists...

  • Wanted to see if i could make it so Emperor Gesthal was still living and you are able to depending on how you have proceeded in the game thus far either a.) get him to join your party or b.) he'll fight you and you'll get uber items for each charecter...perferably option A!
His spritesheet is incomplete, so him joining would result in broken hilarity.

I'm convinced you can cross that room with nothing
Indeed, it can be done. Don't ya just love how you get eureka moments while on the can? :scared: This requires the October 18th version!

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.


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.


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.


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:
