Re: User Talk & Personal Stuff

I finally took the test myself, and I got a 23. This is lower than what I think I would have gotten more than 5 years ago. I won't go into detail other than I actually think it was passed down from my maternal grandfather well before people knew about it.

Re: Super Forum Maker 2: Restructuring Sandbox

I can agree with some of the merges such as "Food!", "Movies and Shows", and a general YouTube thread. Current events is also okay for the lesser known events. I do not believe that "Post odd dreams of yours" is the same as general real life. In fact, it's the true escape from reality and a bit more...

Re: Video Game Logics

If I'm looking at it correctly, they're not actually pies (unless maybe we're ordering a real mud pie, but that's a stretch).

Re: SMB3 Styled SMW NPCs

Minor thing - the first Koopa without a shell resembles a blue Koopa in the SMB3 style (albeit with green shoes), while the one in the SMW style does not.

Re: what's your most hated SMBX level elements?

Another thing that really bugs me is the inclusion of quizzes. Even though they're going to be multiple choice (with info blocks or switches of some kind), I prefer to just think about the current game.

Re: what's your most hated SMBX level elements?

If you have to face more than one SMB3 Bowser at once and force them all into the pit. Too random. Insane jumps are okay...except if you get stuck when you needed to bounce off an enemy that doesn't reappear. Invisible coin blocks are a minor annoyance...until you absolutely need to reveal them to m...

Re: Best SMBX Episodes

I don't know if level contests would count as good or bad (although everyone involved did something right if Tower of Biased is among the best).

Re: What's happening in your own life?

I was hoping to resume uploads on YouTube two weeks ago, but my headset started having difficulties, and I didn't want to take a chance with it. Now I have a new setup including a more professional USB microphone and mini-stand. It sounds a lot better than what was on my old Logitech headset, but th...

Re: SMBX2 button contrast

Then it might be that the light blue buttons are on the corners of the screen. If it was blue-on-blue in the middle of the screen, I would have found it quickly as it's easier to focus on that area (though that's not necessarily to say the buttons should be moved there). If the corner buttons were r...

SMBX2 button contrast

If these are the normal colors, I am surprised it hasn't been addressed yet. Possibly a "repeat" topic, but still an important one. Finally getting into a different version of SMBX after sticking to 1.3.0.1 for years (with a little 38A as well), I had trouble selecting an episode. Then while looking...

Re: Post one of the craziest dream you ever had.

Last night, I was just walking around a store. I saw a figure of Tom Nook...except that below the waist, he was this 8-legged monstrosity with purple spider legs that are 3 or 4 times as tall as Nook himself. He also had really angry eyes, with his arms up along with the front two legs like fists, l...

Re: Unpopular Opinions/Free Speech Topic

Considering that the video still has a high percentage of likes as of now, I guess it fits here. After watching AVGN's recent video of Ecco the Dolphin, I am suddenly convinced that James Rolfe needs mental help. The final gag with a funnel to the blowhole is not funny . It's disturbing, and one mig...

Re: SMB3 NES Yoshis repurposed from SMM2 Frog Toad Sprites

Come to think of it, there's no screenshot of what it looks like when the Yoshi sprite is ducking to "lick" something. Might that be more common? I guess some players are used to holding the up arrow while doing it.

Re: SMB3 NES Yoshis repurposed from SMM2 Frog Toad Sprites

Cursed? I'm not quite sure what you mean.

Also, I only just noticed the pairing with SMB1 Mario where the SMB2 or SMB3 sprite would have made more sense, especially with the Hammer Suit on. SMB2 or SMB3 Mario would definitely improve it.

Re: (Updated) Modernized Toad NPC

The red spots look fine to me. It's the blue and yellow vest that looks odd. Try fitting a really detailed character into an SMW sprite, and it's not going to be easy.

Re: Unpopular Opinions/Free Speech Topic

I honestly stopped going to any disney movies back when toy story 4 came out and the new toy had the gay pride symbol on him. Nothing wrong with the symbol but no reason to have it in a kids movie. If there's nothing wrong, there's no reason to write it out either. Yeah, they may get to the point t...

Re: What's happening in your own life?

As if Vancouver now having what's considered the worst air quality in the world wasn't enough, the local pier is on fire, having started last night near my apartment. Now I really can't take fresh air for granted anymore.

Hey all, I'm sorry about the situation from yesterday. I don't know what I was thinking, or if I was even thinking for that matter.

Re: What's happening in your own life?

I feel weird interrupting this, but it's on the "sobering" side, so maybe it's a good thing I forgot to mention it until now. If you're going to buy retro games in the future, DO NOT look for them on Amazon Prime. You'll probably get a reproduction instead of an authentic game. Now I feel like an id...
