And yes, Miiverse is awesome.  It's amazing how well some people can draw on the Miiverse (I can't draw especially on a tablet screen).  But I'm enjoying my Wii U too much!

Last time I've heard a member on this forums named Piranhaplant is currently ripping the maps from this game.  If he is still doing so I have no clue how far he is in it.

Okay thanks, I got it working! Cheesy  I noticed one problem I was making was I opening the FDS ROM rather than the "Super Mario Bros.fds" file.

Now if you excuse me, I got some maps to rip.
4  General Boards / Mapping Tips/Guides / Need help emulating Famicom Disk System on: June 14, 2012, 12:09:56 PM
I'm deciding to rip maps from a Famicom Disk System game but I need help.  I have the FDS ROM and the "disk" of the game but I don't how to get them to work on the FCE Ultra emulator.  I keep on getting an error message from the FDS ROM for not finding a disc and I'm stuck there.  Can someone tell me how to work it?

And if you must know, the game I want to rip is the disc version of Super Mario Bros.  Why?  Because the Famicom Disk System has a Minus World totally different from the cartridge version and I want to rip those (getting to the Minus World on the FDS version is exactly the same as the cartridge version).

So can anyone help me?

I'll join ya!  I do have ★★★ on my game.  My main choice is a Feather/Medium weight racer (mostly Mii & Lakitu) using Pipe Frame, Standard Wheels, & Super Glider (basic FTW!)

Yeah I'm super happy with the whole list too.  Too bad I bought a Minish Cap cartridge back in the summer but whatevs.  My bro had Fire Emblem:SS & Mario Kart but now I have the chance to play them on my own time.  I've beaten Wario Land 4 COUNTLESS times but the game is too freaking awesome to NOT play again. :3  Plus I've been dying to try Mario vs DK and Metroid Fusion.

This is a beyond great month Nintendo has dished out for the 3DS in December, Mario Kart 7 (getting for X-mas), the masterpiece known as Pushmo, Swapnote, and the GBA Ambassador games.  Can't wait to see what's in store in 2012.

http://3ds.nintendolife.com/news/2011/09/analogue_stick_add_on_for_3ds_revealed
Well this isn't Ambassador or price cut related but Nintendo has officially revealed an add-on so the 3DS has a second analog stick (price and release date unknown).  Thankfully an add-on is a heck of a lot better and cheaper than buying a new 3DS with 2 built-in sticks.

I hope Luigi's Mansion 2 uses this since I'm not a fan of the idea of using gyro sensors to aim the vacuum.  And maybe this could get people to stop complaining that Kid Icarus Uprising isn't left-handed friendly (I'm right-handed but I'm just saying)

EDIT: The new add-on also has L2 and R2 buttons (plus a new R1 button to replace the original R button)

All 10 NES games have been revealed:
- Balloon Fight
- Donkey Kong Jr.
- Ice Climber
- The Legend of Zelda
- Metroid
- NES Open Tournament Golf
- Super Mario Bros.
- Wrecking Crew
- Yoshi (called "Mario & Yoshi" in Europe)

Oh, if you live in Japan or North America, the NES Ambassador games came a day early and started this morning (Europe is still September 1).  I just forgot to post here.  And here is how to claim your Ambassador games:

By using your serial number on the back of your 3DS, you find out if you made it as an Ambassador.

North Amercia
Latin America
Australia

Sorry, Europe is not up yet.  But they are cooking one up right now.

Well, I'm very sure I am an Ambassador Member I still can't wait for the games.  But I'm kinda surprised that Nintendo hasn't at least revealed the remaining 5 NES games yet (there is a rumored list online claiming to know all 20 games but I want to post facts here)

If I sound like I'm advertising, I'm sorry: I'm trying to make this as news.

http://www.nintendo.com/whatsnew/detail/fttgI7OsQIB1tZqRMa5CtT45KLrmNkAY

Due to Nintendo's low sales on the 3DS (like lack of good games and weak launch for both store and digital content) as well as other reasons, Nintendo, worldwide, will officially drop more than 30% off the original price ($169.99 in America, $249.96 in Australia, & £160/€180 in Europe) starting August 12th this year.

But if you have purchased a 3DS before August 12 (and have connected to the eShop), you'll get a treat as well: you'll be able to download twenty (yes, you've read that correctly) NES and GameBoy Advance games for absolutely free!  You won't get the games instantly: they'll come later:

NES Games (Available September 1)
* Super Mario Bros.
* Donkey Kong Jr.
* Balloon Fight
* Ice Climber
* The Legend of Zelda
* 5 more NES games (all are unknown at this time)

GameBoy Advance games (Available by the end of 2011)
* Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
* Mario Kart: Super Circuit
* Metroid Fusion
* WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$
* Mario vs. Donkey Kong
* 5 more GBA games (all are unknown at this time)

Remember, the qualification is you must have a 3DS and have connected to eShop before August 12.

But wow, this is a stunt I would have never expected Nintendo to do, not even in a million years!  I can't wait for my 20 free games!  Grin

Discuss.

13  General Boards / Gaming / The "Project Cafe" (Wii Successor) Rumor Topic on: April 15, 2011, 05:37:06 PM
EDIT:  Now the Wii Successor is codenamed by IGN as "Project Cafe."  Sound pretty weird to me

I've been surfing the web and I'm seeing rumors of the Wii 2 everywhere.  I've been collecting all rumors since the rumors just don't seem to stop all.  So take a truck load of salt and here are all the rumors (No particular order):

Quote
- console is significantly more powerful than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- Nintendo is looking to recapture the hardcore market
- 1080p resolutions
- Nintendo will release a pre-announcement this month
- full reveal expected at E3
- backwards compatible with current Wii software
- publishers who got to see it are very interested working on it
- Nintendo insists to show stronger partnerships with 3rd party developers
- anonymous source: says it is not a gimmick like the Wii
- the rumors that the Wii's price is getting cut again hints the end of the Wii
- official E3 twitter hints this
- late 2012 launch
- when Nintendo was approached with this information, they were told that Nintendo won't comment on their E3 plans, but "stay tuned"
- launch titles from third-party developers are in the works right now
- all-new controller
- controller features a built-in HD screen
- Blu-ray as the main optical drive
- some are saying 2012 would be too late for the console to be released since the Wii's sales are sinking
- dual analog sticks on the controller
- can stream game content from the console (no word if content is full games, mini-games, or apps)
- there are rumors that the company AMD could be involved
- new Nintendo controller allows players to stream entire games to the device from the console - like a miniature television
- reason why Sony and Microsoft haven't said any new system is because they want Kinect and Move longer so they're stalling
- the screen size on the controller is also confirmed to be six inches in size
- the controller mirrors a GameCube controller in general function but not in specific form

What do you think of all this?  Note that these rumors have come multiple places and doesn't mean it's "all or nothing."

Places the rumors are coming from: IGN, Game Informer, NeoGaf and GoNintendo.com

The map of the month is nice as always.

Well Jon, if you ever get back to April Fools maps (who knows when that'll be. I'm not trying to push/rush you), you're always welcomed to use that idea I PMed you about.

And I actually like The Ultimate Koopa's idea, even though that would be 16 months away.
15  General Boards / Map Requests / Giana Sisters DS (Nintendo DS) on: September 23, 2010, 02:15:46 PM
I'm pretty sure you guys have heard of the Commodore 64 game "The Great Giana Sisters".  If not, back in 1987, some German company named Rainbow Arts made this game but was removed very quickly off the shelves after Nintendo sued the company for plagiarizing the classic "Super Mario Bros."  

To my surprise in 2009, a sequel to the game called "Giana Sisters DS" (still plays like a SMB game) was released but was sold in Europe for a short time, thus being hard to track down (but you can still get this since it has been ported to the iPhone and iPod Touch titled "Giana Sisters iPhone")

I'm planning to rip the original Giana Sisters game (whenever I get to it), but there is no way I'll have the time (or the experience) to rip a DS game with 84 levels.  Is there anybody wanting to rip this please?  I mean, the game is only 6 MB so it won't be hard to rip compared to New Super Mario Bros.  If you do accept this request, I can give you a game save (played on an R4DS) where the first file has been completed 100% that you can go back to any level any time (but still make a new file since there is an intro level that can ONLY be played when you start a new file).

So who's up for it?
