I didn't think so.



It's the big topics I mostly want recovered, and since they're the ones that are missing...  Sad



I don't even have four megs free at the moment, I bet.  I really need my host to get back to me soon.  I have like a month's worth of backlogged maps, and that to me is the priority when I do get more space.  But since you spent so much time with this, Revned, I should be putting them up - but that's when I get a chance.



I guess I could change my procedure and try to do some offline updates, so everything will be up the first chance I get...  >_<

I can get you the avatars, but while I do miss the old topics, I'm kinda hesitant as they don't mean as much to me if they can't be added on to like active topics.



I'd ask Inty to try his conversion again (after backing up the forums, of course) but I'm sure it could be a nightmare without the proper users, or since you're probably saving them as HTMs or something.



If you just want them on the site somewhere somehow, I might consider it - once my host gets back to me about the space issue.  >_<

Not my fault.  I've been bugging them about it.  They haven't been responding to my space issue, either.

Stolen from IGN.  I'm using a bigger version as my Active Desktop wallpaper.

There are some differences, albeit minor.

So, wait, what?



Non-DX overworld and DX dungeons?

It's a shame...a real damn shame...that the forums had a "reboot" in April.  So for those of you who didn't get it, this is an April Fool's joke.



Here are the full credits:



Stages: JonLeung, osrevad, Grizzly, Revned

Concept: JonLeung

Sprite/Portrait Edits: JonLeung

Title: osrevad

Stage Select Screen: osrevad

Artwork: bustin98

"solid-x.com" Web Site: bustin98




Since many stages were based on chunks/palette swaps of existing stages from the Super NES Mega Man X games, credit is also due to Revned and Geminiman for mapping those games.  Geminiman in particular submitted a lot of maps during the project.



I really had a lot of fun doing the sprite edits (a keen eye would notice which Mavericks were used, and that there is at least one from each of the first 6 Mega Man X games), but I really love bustin98's work.  He understood what my concept was from the get-go.



The deadline was kind of tight (we literally finished this on the evening of March 31st), so future projects with a deadline we'll start a lot earlier.  It's a sad fact that the topic that showed the progression of this project was lost, but I believe it was two months of work, greatly accelerated in the last two weeks of March.



I'd kind of hoped it would've received more attention, but in the end it turned out better looking than I'd imagined, so it was worth it.



I'd like the other mappers to chime in on how they felt the project was, and what everybody else thought of it.

Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks

For this month's "Maps of the Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to our Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks (J) (GBA) maps.

Capcom is no stranger to cross-overs.  There are several games where the title itself makes the cross-overs very evident, such as Marvel Vs. Capcom (and its sequel), Capcom Vs. SNK (and its sequel), SNK Vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos, SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighter's Clash (the two Neo-Geo Pocket Color games), and the Japanese game Namco X Capcom.  Prior to Marvel Vs. Capcom, their Street Fighter series have also seen cross-overs with X-Men and other Marvel heroes, but the Mega Man series has its share as well, all with Konami.  Capcom's Mega Man Battle Network 5 can be linked to Konami's Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django for a strange cross-over involving Shade Man - and who can forget Mega Man and Simon Belmont (of Konami's Castlevania) teaming up on Captain N: The Game Master?

Capcom's Mega Man (X) crosses over with a Konami property again here in Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks.  The story is essentially a simplified version of Metal Gear Solid's, with Mega Man X in place of Solid Snake.  The gameplay (much to the chagrin of MGS fans) is more closer to the Mega Man X series' blast-them-ups than MGS's stealthiness.  The bosses are Capcom's take on MGS's FOXHOUND unit, if they were Maverick Reploids.  After all, they share the same style of names (they're all named as "[descriptor] [animal]"), and this was probably the inspiration to even try to mix these two completely different games.

The Mega Man series has been a popular one here on VGMaps.com, and for this second VGMaps.com Atlas Project, a group effort of five people worked hard to map out a game...that isn't even available outside of Japan yet.  Will we ever see a North American or European release?  The official web site, http://solid-x.com still reads "Coming Soon to the Nintendo Game Boy Advance"...keep your fingers crossed, MG(S) and MM(X) fans...

So to recognize the team effort in making these maps, JonLeung's, bustin98's, Osrevad's, Grizzly's, and Revned's Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks maps will be known as VGMaps.com's Maps of the Month for April 2006.

But surely if you're a Nintendo fan, you'd recognize which "cat" it is.



Though it's not really a cat...
3101  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz on: April 21, 2006, 12:16:44 PM
I might as well give it to you, since you clearly know which it is.  The game doesn't say that its name is Mechbeth (oddly similar to the planet it's on, Macbeth) so I guess most judges would accept that description.



I would've thought the first one was infamous and classic enough, though.  I saw it in a very recent IGN article, actually.
3102  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz on: April 21, 2006, 10:13:13 AM
Series-wise, Inty is correct (except for his second guess of #2).



But his answer for #4, while technically correct, could use further clarification.  I suppose the problem is that its name isn't mentioned in-game...



I suppose I should've looked more carefully at #7 (as in, looking at Japanese names), or should've specified I meant English names, but I was definitely looking for Bonsly (Pok?mon XD), Munchlax (Pok?mon: Destiny Deoxys/Pok?mon Dash), and Lucario (Pok?mon: Lucario And The Mystery Of Mew) so you've got that answer.

...that have samurai.

Explain the opening to me, because I can't read Japanese.



The main character gets up.  Tries to leave his house.  His mom makes him get dressed so that he can leave now.  Talk to some old guy.  Walk over, where a friend shows you how to kick a dinosaur.  o_0



After a few kicks of the T-Rex that likes to play dead (actually, I think it's also a dash but it's like a kick when you do it right next to something), a big ant comes up.  Then you fight the ant?



Then aliens attack?  What?



Actually don't explain it, it's funnier this way.  *kicks dinosaurs*
3105  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / RE: Movies You've Seen on: April 20, 2006, 08:13:39 PM
I took a course all about Kurosawa in my last year of university.



Seven Samurai is one of the big ones.  Rashomon is fairly well-known.



I'm surprised at Revned's grasp of films.  I did, however, see Caligari.
