General Discussion / NIXON'S BACK!!!
« on: December 02, 2009, 12:36:33 AM »
I wish I had that picture of Nixon in that episode of Futurama. :tongue:

My return is not without it's limitations, though. I'm currently stuck to using Juno's free service, which gives you a grand total of 10 hours a month. It's like I've died and gone to Iowa, errr, wait, that came out wrong. :isuck:

Anyway, my activity will now be in a dwindled state instead of a drop-dead state. Everything is fine, the internet just decided to pull the rug out from under my feet. :cycle:

Would it be possible to manipulate the timer in a way of checking the menu early, doing a timed event (such as the fall of the FC), then load the menu afterwards and have a really low time at the start of the WoR? This sounds like it would be possible, but either way it's worth investigating.

The 49'er/Vikings game was one of the better played games I had seen since the Titans/Steelers opener. It did not disappoint.

My day would've been better if Favrerere didn't screw things up.
Ahhh, but he didn't. :wink:

The trap games played out exactly as I thought they would, they trapped me and I only get 8 wins (MNF still needs to be played).

My week 3 predictions: Lions, Packers, Vikings, Falcons, Jets, Eagles, Giants, Ravens, Texans, Saints, Seahawks, Chargers, Steelers, Raiders, Cardinals, Cowboys.

This is a hard week. I'm not comfortable at all with a lot of these picks. There are way too many trap games.

Equipping two of the same claw on Yang has no benefit. Always have two different claws on him.
I didn't do that? :hmm:

There are items hidden in pots and the grass in just about every map.
While I did know this, I didn't think many of them were worth seeking out.

There is a small room on the right side of Damcyan castle's exterior with some useful equipment and items.
Didn't know that. :blush:

Alligators are weak against ice, not lightning.
I don't remember if I found that out later during the playthru or not.

You can heal for free in chocobo forests (heal with magic, then restore your MP).
This I did know, but I don't think I had any applicable uses for it in this movie.

danadanadanadanadanadanadanadanadanadanadanadana. Ok, it's Jaws. :tongue: I had been practicing this for a while, and though I do beat the game without dying, I take forever in doing so. I even hose the showdown three times. Made with Nestopia v1.40

On my way to Karnak. These jobs aren't working well for me; I actually had to use Phoenix Down a few times. I don't remember ever having trouble with the beginning of the game, but I usually have two decent attackers at this point.
The Waltz jobs aren't really that great of a bunch, if memory serves. I usually stick with what I have until after the Karnak acquisition.

The spirit temple sucks in this version. Way too much traveling back and forth through time. The water temple wasn't all bad, but the shadow temple was a real yak job on my part, since I wound up doing a ton of backtracking. I even died in Ganon's castle, cause :isuck: ed in the fire barrier test. That death was my only death, which kind of sucked, cause I had 15 hearts, too. Hell, it's better than the 13 deaths I had the first time I played this. :happy:

All of the patch pages had bad links to the Niche. I updated them to look at Romhacking.net, since I'm pretty sure that'll be around, oh, forever. :childish:

In a game where the Colts hold the ball for 14:57, they somehow managed to win. Both Deathlike and myself went 10-6 this week Deathlike went 9-7, I went 10-6, since the Titans, Patriots, Steelers, Packers, and Jaguars decided to yak up the place. :tongue:

Multi-game update!

Diablo II: Lord of Destruction (PC)

Having collected the three keys again, my attempt this time was against Lilith. Nothing went as planned, and she's a truck. I was barely able to do any damage at all, and I was going through Full Rejuvenation potions left and right. I have 998 life. My defense is 3748, and my damage is 2820-8278, with an attack rating of 10,940. I've stopped playing for the weekend to consider how to approach this quest.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Master Quest

I had forgotten how insane the dungeons were in this version. I have 7 hearts right now, Epona's song, and have just acquired the Master Sword.

:edit:

I have completed the fire and forest temples, acquired the Lens of Truth, and I have Biggoron's Sword. Unforutnately, the water temple is next... :bah: :lame:

Unfortunately, because this bank was coded by a pack of retarded monkeys, you'll have to add it in the airship logic routine. For some inexplicable reason, that's where they put Doom Gaze. This will require a bunch of work, because of what's involved. To get an idea, open up the EE disassembly and take a peek at EE/6EEA to get an idea of what you'll be in store for.

Anything is possible, given hardware limitations. It all depends on how much work and effort you want to put into it to make it happen.

I'm curious to why you think you need this.

What I'm asking is, can I change this without having to worry about where the game tries to find each string, or will I have to change pointers somewhere else in the ROM so the game will load the proper battle dialogue string?
For some reason, I think I answered this already. You're making it sound more complicated than it is. There is only one set of pointers for this, that is all you have to change. If you move this dialouge, you need to tweak the pointer routine so it looks at the new bank (assuming you move it out of the bank). That's all there is to it.

*insert crying smiley here*

Actually, I'm amazed at how little grinding I had to do. I didn't think Zeromus would be that much of a jump (I guess that happens when you don't play that version for a while).
