General Discussion / Re: The official "Happy Birthday" thread!

zomg happy burfday! :childish:

I don't know how when or why...

[spoiler]Holy crap![/spoiler]

The bottom row is a little random I suppose. If you hold the mouse over any checkbox, a tooltip will appear, telling you what each box does.
If the tooltip appears for any shared icon, then I guess what I was going to say it moot. :tongue:

Incoming potentially stupid question: Why are there multiple helmet, gauntlet, sword, armor, and staff icons?

Seeing as though the tag is still broken, direct link instead! :laugh:

Not everything went smoothly.

Now things are smooth. :happy:

General Discussion / USA vs Canada

Damn that was a great game. I was fully expecting Canada to win, but not like this. This is the "it's a shame somebody had to lose" type of game. :happy:

Uh oh, Very Bad Things™ tend to happen when "upgrade" is mentioned. :tongue: All hands, brace for impact! :happy:

You'll have to do what the rest of us did, look at the Event dump (found here) and search, search, search. :sleep: If you look for "Dog block" then you should find what you want fairly quickly.

This requires assembly. Luckily, Master ZED did half the work for you already, cause he made a Controllable Umaro patch.

As for Gogo, check C3/2254 and C3/63A7. I don't know if more needs to be done (like in battle).

Manipulate the use of Rippler?

For a real answer, I'd say go through the events, remove the 6 or so instances where Interceptor is added to Shadow, then make an event to give someone Interceptor status.

It is that easy, just tedious, cause you'd need to find every instance of adding Inteceptor.

If the pointers were wrongly calculated, a lot can happen, including crashes.

So I've gone back through the changes that I've made, and as far as I can tell my changes aren't causing any inconsistencies. They're all done using FF3usME except where I have to directly manipulate hex (attack names, rare items), and unless I counted wrong, all the fields that are being changed are within space requirements (enemies, item names and descriptions, spells, etc).
Anything that is fixed-width (monster names, spells, item names) won't break no matter what you do to them. Each item name could 56 letters in length and the game won't care. It'll just grab 10, 7, or 13 letters (respectively) based on the math the game does.

If you keep backups, it would be a good idea to check those to see when it started freezing up on you.

What, really? I'm the only one playing a game in the last month? :tongue:

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GC)
Started a new game on Hard mode. What the hell was I thinking? Well, I have 3 energy tanks, 15 missiles, both beams, and one ammo expansion. Got the boots, and I'm saved right before Amorbis.

Game over count: at least 10.


Continuing on, I just got the Super Missile launcher, I have 5 energy tanks, 30 missiles, and 100 ammo. I attempted to skip to the Boost Guardian a few times, but I can't seem to line myself up properly to get the unmorph view I need. :isuck: If I can't pull that off, I'll continue into lower Torvus where I need to get the Gravity Boost. Ugh,  not looking forward to these fights.


37%, 70 missiles, 8 energy tanks, 150 ammo, dark visor, seeker launcher, boost ball, grapple  beam, and gravity boost collected. Chykka sucks. :tongue: I'm now supposed to enter Sanctuary, yay.


38%, only difference from above is one more energy tank. I'm attempting to get the Screw Attack, and so far I'm halfway there. However, the problem now is either getting to a bomb slot way way up there, or I have to get really good and jump on a robot. :isuck:


54%, Echo Visor, 200 ammo, 100 missiles, 11 energy tanks, 3 power bombs, and all of the accessories. I killed the power bomb guardian, but didn't collect that power bomb (I'm going to test something; if you know the game then you should have an idea of what I have planned). The only sequence break I successfully pulled off was the power bombs. I got 2 in Sanctuary, and 1 in Dark Torvus.

Now I'm back to this:

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GC)

I hate Quadraxis. Hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate HATE YOU! GRR!

I've put together a blooper reel of Quadraxis fights, but they are rather large and I cannot upload them quite yet, if ever.


I forgot to mention that I managed to get the game to crash yesterday. I was struggling with attempting to get the Screw Attack, and I figured "I'll get some easy missiles in the meantime." Those missiles are in a large vertical room, with some orb cannons. Instead of going back up, I opened up the next door to "Main Research" where you need the Echo Visor to gain access to a dark portal. I went into it, but not far enough so the door closes, then double backed when I saw I had no way to get out of Main Research. All of a sudden, the orb cannon is blocked off (like it should be), so I started shooting randomly and the screen just went black, then to the health and safety warning.

Anyway, I finally beat the g'fooker Quadraxis, but now it seems it was all for naught. I wanted to test the infamous Ing Cache in Dark Agon, but it turns out Very Bad Things™ happen. The Ing Cache does not show up, as expected (was hoping, but oh well) but now the Power Bomb dropped by the PBG has also disappeared. :wtf:

Anticipating something may go wrong, I copied my save file before fighting the PBG, but now that means I need to fight the g'fooker again. :sad:

General Discussion / Weird dreams
« on: February 20, 2010, 12:22:47 AM »
I'm posting this here only because I can and I want to. This last week I've been having the weirdest dreams. I'll mention this one cause it's the only one that won't bring the FCC down on me. :tongue:

I'm at a football game, forgot who was playing, but the game itself was more of a fundraiser. See, my sister, NFL referee Jeff Triplet, and MLB pitcher John Smoltz all had some uber-deadly virus that was rapidly expanding by the hour, and has a lethality rate of like 6 hours or something like that.

What's also weird is that Triplet was the head ref of the fundraiser game, while slowing dying from this virus. As the game went on, I was getting morale support from Meatwad, of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Shortly before all three of them died, I woke up, wondering what the hell had just gone on.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, in terms of strange. I usually get the weirder ones every 6 months or so. :tongue:
