Yeah yeah yeah, I know I'm just an amateur and it's probably not very impressive, but you could at LEAST stop by here to say "YOU SUCK". :tongue:
That would be flaming. :tongue:

Anyway, I don't need this topic anymore, so it can be moved to trash.
I'll give it a little more time, just in case. You never know when something may pop up. :omg:

General Discussion / Re: The curse that is dialup...

what are you each paying for dialup?  over here, i get Comcast Highspeed Internet for $42.95/month, and it's stayed at that price for a long time.  also, i believe AT&T was offering some entry-level DSL package (768Kb/s?) for $14.99 or $19.99 per month.  there's no reason to pay $15-$20 for dial-up these days, unless you live in the sticks or something.
The cheapest DSL around here is $21.99 a month, which is more than I can afford. Unfortunately, even if DSL is available here (I live "in the sticks or something") it'd probably be slower than the dialup. It's not helping that the phone lines in this house are older than I am. (There's exposed wire in the basement, though I think the lines outside are fairly new.) The prospect of having it available any time during the day is really looking nice though. However, I need money for that. :sad: This goes back to that evil cycle of needing money to get car, needing car to get job, needing job to get money sort of thing. Fortunately, I have some kind friends that assist with the dialup. I probably wouldn't have this problem if I were living in the city (I'm about 5-6 miles outside of it). Everything would be within walking distance, and then I would have the money for the things I want. :happy:

No. :tongue: Here's a hint: Go to the Serpent Trench, and find this spot. There's a really obscure bug in the original at that spot, and unless you accidently find it, you probably never will.

Yes, I'm sure all of  us here have experienced the pain and the suffering. It gets really bad when you have to download, which may happen more than a person realizes. Take my video drivers, for instance. Every time there's an update, the drivers are a 40+ meg download. That's an entire nights worth of internet time for me just to update the drivers. There's other things like the emergency patches that Microsoft releases now and then, and those add up too.

But when you move into things that you don't need, and just want, that's when it hurts. Recently I started a download of a Star Ocean: The Second Story speedrun. That's 500 megs for the low-quality movie, which is acceptable. That translates to about 10 nights of internet time to download it all. However, a couple of other things recently finished getting, which will tack on an additional 3 gigs. 3 gigs to download on dialup. I did some math which would have this finished some time around August or September... The worst part? I'm doing this voluntarily.

I'm pretty sure I'm still legally sane, but lately I've been having my doubts. :whoa:

Moral of the story: Be grateful for your internet speed if it isn't dialup.

What happened? Hunting accident? Car accident? Fishing accident? Boating accident? :whoa:

Oh, that's why you haven't been on 24-7 lately. :tongue: Thanks for the info. :happy:

Ok, For What Ails Ya was broken, but only slightly. Slightly in the sense that it wasn't broken. Another patch was interfering with it, and as though it was fate, it was one of my own patches. If you plan on using For What Ails Ya, and you have used Anchors Aweigh, for the love of all that is sacred use the newest Anchors Aweigh version!

How many of you remember this!?

The fun of discovering OAM, and messing with values. :happy:

*is not retarded and knows this*

Fine. Just a suggestion.
MY suggestions don't take too well with people doing big-scale projects.  :hmm:
Have you seen just how much bitching there has been because the original wasn't in? It's in the RHDN thread, during the early stages. Some in the ZD thread too, when we were still posting updates there.

It's not you, of that I can assure you. We're just tired of the suggestions being focused on the fonts. :wink:

Maybe I should just stick to the generic "OMG AWESOME SUPER MAGICAL HAPPY PANTS KEWLZ" comments.
Oh, dear god, no. Don't do that. :eek:

Final Fantasy IV Research & Development / Re: ASM Hacking
« on: February 07, 2008, 09:35:07 PM »
Before I started using an assembler, I used a hex editor. Any of them will do, you just need to keep track of where stuff is, what stuff is what, and understanding the flow for it to work. This is a very involving process, and some of my earlier work was made with only a hex editor.

During that time, Kejardon suggested I move onto xkas, which has enough versatility and functionality to suit all needs. Drewseph (maker of Super Metroid: Redesign) is a Mac user, and used xkas for it. He hated it, from what I keep hearing, but that might've been because of the constant switching between DOS and Mac. Kejardon could probably fill you in better regarding that.

Also, from what I hear from byuu (maker of xkas), it's not recommended to use if you piss him off or try to make a full game from scratch.
