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).

General Discussion / RIP Patrick Swayze

Earlier in the night, news broke that Mr. Swayze had died. He was 57. :sad:

Use "Innate ability" for the actual entries. You can add as many as you like to each job, but only actual innate abilities.
:omg: I am genuinely surprised by this, as I thought there'd be a limit of some sort. That opens up a lot of possibilities for a tweaking hack. :cycle:

Both Monday night games were excellent, and both the Patriots and Chargers eeked out wins, when they should've lost. See this post for standings.

Diablo II: Lord of Destruction (PC)

After Kabucho, DarknessSavior, and practically everyone else bailed on this, I pressed on. :tongue: I was getting through Act II on Hell difficulty at a snail's pace (literally, cause half of everything is immune to physical). In any event, I was playing using a mod called PlugY (plays as though you're on battle.net) which more or less has been interesting. As I was crawling through act II though, I ran into something...shall we say unpleasant. As explained to me, this is Uber Diablo. He hits way too freaking hard.

Anyway, after spending 2 hours trying to get the staff out of there, I finally did and realized the bastard likes to teleport, so any hopes of killing him quickly faded. After quitting and re-loading, I resumed trying to get through the act. Like what came before Uber D, it went slowly. Once I got to the Arcane Sanctuary, however, progress came to a screeching halt. Basically, the place is infested with ghost-types which are physical immune and they had the tendency to corner me. It look me a full day just to get through the act.

Shortly thereafter, an idea came to me. DarknessSavior actually gave the idea, without really giving it. See, he was playing Diablo II windowed so he could keep an eye on the chat in IRC. At that point I thought to myself, "there's no way this can work." I tried to load two instances of the game, and load they did. My idea was to start a TCP/IP game, with me being both the host and joinee. "This is impossible, it can't work." So what happened? It worked. Since the traffic isn't going in and out of the internet, it's acting as though I'm on a local network and thus I can multitask Diablo II.

This helped me finish Hell Ancients, which then allowed me to finally beat the game with my Paladin.

At this point, I'm killing random named stuff trying to acquire set items in hopes of attempting to kill some of this Uber quest BS. I've all but given up trying to multitask, though. It only works on act I cause that's the only manageable act on Hell.

Well, it took all of the first half of the first game before the Madden jinx ate up Troy Polamalu. MCL sprain, he's out 3-6 weeks. You almost  have to think something's going to happen to Larry Fitzgerald this weekend...

Our attention shifts from Gamefaqs briefly to Zophar's Domain. Dude is thick. :sad:
