    Uuugh.... I was toiling over a error that made no sense for a good 15 minutes... then I realized I forgot to add 'def' in front of a method definition. >_> Even experienced programmers can still make noob mistakes sometimes!

    Also, I forgot to say before but it may be worth mentioning to anyone who is a fan of Super Metroid and Zelda: Link to the Past. I found out today that someone made a hack/randomizer that sorta stitches both games together into one game.
     
    Seriously, the time and dedication needed to pull that off... Even if it was kind of a lucky break that the two roms apparently use different chunks of addresses for most of their code. Trust me, I used to be huge into SNES game modification back in the day. Knew ASM well enough that if I took the time and effort, I might have even been able to pull the stitching the games together trick myself. That's not a dismissive statement btw. That's just informing everyone that when I say it needed some serious time and dedication I know what I am talking about.
     
    Heres the thing. ASM knowledge is only the basic starting point. You also need to know the game's code inside and out. I am not even sure if Super Metroid or LttP have the kind of insane documentation that Super Mario World (the game I am most familiar with) has. Super Mario World has basically been investigated and dissembled to the point that you can reprogram the whole game with nothing but controller inputs. LttP and Super Metroid though? Well I know there have been people picking away at them for a while at least, but even if the games are known inside and out to that level, to actually do something like this is still crazy impressive.

    Holy crap... OpenMPT now has native FM Synth support! I have been using a vsti plugin for it or recording it to samples. It's amazing. I knew old s3m modules supported adlib stuff, but I never expected OpenMPT to support them! And they can use instrument envelopes too? And proper panning? Super neato! I can't wait to play with it!
     
    Edit: Awww, you can only do hard panning with it. I guess I could make two channels but I am disappointed. I like to use the pitch/pan separation feature, which lets different notes automatically pan based on the note, kinda like you would hear on a piano. Maybe I could get it to work with macros...

    Lately I have got back into messing round with ZDoom. I used to be into it quite a bit back in the day... It's pretty nostalgic to play with it again. I got distracted reading though all my old posts in the ZDoom forum today. I wonder if I should try and get my account back there? Eh, it's been ages and I don't really have much to say there. Also, found out Randy Heit totally was a girl after all! I knew it! I remember specifically how I made a post somewhere playfully chastising people for assuming Randy's gender... to which Randy replied with only a simple knowing 'heh'.
     
    ...Anyway I have not given up on my RPG Maker game or anything, but I do kinda want to make a Doom mod again... Or a Heretic or Hexen mod more likely, I have always been a bit more fond of Raven's fantasy shooters then I have Doom. And Strife is pretty cool too!

    I thought of the punny name 'Nekonomicon' a few minutes ago. I knew I couldn't be the first one, it's way too easy. Google proved me right! Oh well, it still sounds like a magic book I would want to get my hands on. Imagine a spell book all about cats and catgirls! It sounds so much fun~!

    I found myself kinda binging on Goriliaz videos lately. It's funny, I remember when the band started, but I never payed much attention to them in between then and now.
     
    A lot has changed since then. 2-D looks like he may have actually been happy for a bit there, Russel is no longer possessed, Murdoc is in jail and was replaced by Ace from The Powerpuff Girls of all people for a bit (guess greenies make the best bass players), and Noodle... Uh... Wow. She definitely is not 10 years old anymore, I can tell you that.

    Tee-hee, I just finished a cut scene in my game which introduces a particular trio of fairies.
     
    You might remember me talking about them before. They are three special unique enemies that randomly show up sometimes and harass the player, mostly by stealing stuff and teleporting away.
     
    Anyway I realized that I never really came up with names for them and when thinking about it I became tempted to name them Sophia, Emma, and Madison, though I doubt anyone will ever get the reference. That and the personalities don't really match. As annoying as they may be they are still fun-loving fairies and not sociopathic high school bullies. Huh? What's the difference you ask? Fairies have style.

Maybe I should make it a character in my game, like a talking book or a literal exposition fairy that follows you around.

    I spend too much time playing around with funky graphical effects sometimes. Take a look at my titlescreen:
     

     
    May not look like much still, but I have a lot of neat animations like flames moving behind the runes and the silver bits glowing slightly, all of it done using some clever masking tricks with viewports. It probably took too much time and effort to do what I wanted, but it looks pretty neat!
     
    I made all the graphics I used here in gimp and inkscape btw. :3 I may not be able to draw that well, but I can do logos, textures, and graphical effects pretty okay I think, and I can do vector art sorta well. Just don't expect me to draw anything humanoid.

    I added a Composite Character script to my game today! It was always something I was thinking of doing, but it's kind of a pain to format the images right. But I plan on doing all sorts of fun things with it, like transformations and whatnot.
     
    Only downside is now I can't tease male players for forcing them to be a girl anymore. Well... I still could force them if I reaaaallly wanted to. You know the sickos all secretly want to be transformed into cute girls anyway.

    I have been obsessively playing a sort of monster breeding/tactical RPG thing with monster girls (and monster guys who look like girls, and monsters who are both guys and girls at the same time, but that's all the better if you ask me). It's pretty fun! Not for everyone though, cause well... It has lots a lot of breeding even outside of actual procreation if you know what I mean. *wiggles eyebrows* So much wonderful breeding... *drools a bit*
     
    ...But no seriously, it has a pretty interesting and fun battle system, though I have no idea how the hell you are meant to complete half the quests the annoying king gives you in time. But I play in freeplay mode so I can mostly ignore them anyway.
