To cut down on speculation, you could, you know, email/message him and just ask...

Peardian's not out of retirement.  In fact, in these slow times, it actually feels like Peardian is the most busy one!

He's sent in a number of corrections to his existing maps (some I have yet to put up, oops), but I usually don't announce minor changes on the front page.

Powered Up certainly seems different, in a few ways, but the chance to play as Roll and the Robot Masters isn't appealing?  Or at least not appealing enough to overcome its faults?

Despite the idea being a few years old, I have since expanded this to a huge multiverse connecting so much more.  I revisit the original idea here in this YouTube video, potentially the first in a series.
65  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / Re: YouTube channel! on: February 13, 2017, 10:41:16 PM
An old idea (dating back to 2008), but may be the start of a new sub-series on my channel.

Wow, can't believe it's been months later and I've barely played any Mega Man: Legacy Collection at all.  Which makes my next question sound odd, since we're already talking about Mega Man on handhelds...

Would it be worth getting a PSP just to (or primarily to) play Mega Man: Powered Up and Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X?

As I said, I don't believe anything is impossible.  But stop getting your hopes up for Road Runner's Death Valley Rally, please.  And I don't see what coming up with another symbol is going to accomplish here.
68  General Boards / Map Requests / Re: Request Listings on: February 01, 2017, 06:06:20 PM
Trop, if you still want to maintain the first post in this topic, I wonder if there's any benefit to posting when it was requested and by whom and if anybody seconds those requests.  And in some cases maybe some relevant notes (like if there's something technical that makes a particular game challenging to map).  I guess I just think that original post can be more helpful with a bit more info, rather than merely a consolidation of this board's topics.
69  General Boards / Map Requests / Re: Zelda: Four Swords Adventures on: February 01, 2017, 06:03:12 PM
Jotari, you can try contacting Piranhaplant directly then by using his email if it is still current; I haven't seen him around these forums in a while.

Almost nobody here gets their map requests fulfilled.

Well, there is the matter of being realistic about the requests.  Asking for something in the current or most recent previous generation isn't likely.  And LTIan, no one is as much of a Looney Tunes fan as you are apparently, so there is that, at least regarding your own requests.

Ultimately mappers are going to map what they want to do, as it is a lot of work, that you should at least recognize, but if you ask NICELY for maps of a game that is something technically easy enough and fun and popular, you might have a better success rate.
70  General Boards / Maps Of The Month / 2017/02: Solar Jetman (NES) - mechaskrom on: January 31, 2017, 09:43:55 PM

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to mechaskrom's Solar Jetman (NES) maps.

As Jetman (hero of Jet Pac and Lunar Jetman), you are hunting for pieces of the Golden Warpship (though the European box art says "Warship"). To do so, you will have to traverse a dozen planets, using a small pod to maneuver through caverns, and utilizing a tow cable to collect valuables, fuel, and the pieces of the Golden Warpship and bringing them back to the mothership. The caverns, which can become increasingly maze-like and narrow as you get to farther planets, make this quite the challenging experience. As if it wasn't hard enough just knowing your way, you'll have to contend with gravity and inertia, and of course dragging heavy items around affects your flying ability. Will Jetman be able to collect and reassemble the Golden Warpship?

Luckily, mechaskrom's got this covered. Not only has he fully mapped out all of the planets, he's also provided mini-maps with the items being more clearly indicated, as well as a few tips concerning the warps and wormholes. Thanks to these efforts, Jetman has a greater chance of success. Though we are talking about one of the most difficult games on the NES, so it's still going to be tough, but at the very least, you won't get lost in this galaxy.

So the recognize the effort in paving the planetary path to the pieces of the Golden Warship, mechaskrom's Solar Jetman (NES) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for February 2017.

Aside from the one Star Wars Game that needs mapped, there is that OTHER GAME that I won't mention but still needs to be completed.

Except that by pointing it out in capital letters, and that not mentioning something but saying that you're not mentioning it actually draws more attention to it, it's pretty obvious what you're getting at.

Look, I would like Road Runner's Death Valley Rally maps too, though maybe not as apparently urgently as you, but eventually, yes.  However, as has been explained, many times before, that particular game is not that easy to map, as said so even by a few of our most seasoned mappers.

However, I am of the belief that nothing of this sort is totally impossible, and so, LTIan, perhaps if you had put in some effort into learning how to map, instead of repeatedly asking for someone else to attempt to make them, maybe between your first request and now, you could have fully mapped the game yourself, a few times over, even.  At this point that seems to be your best option, since your undying desire for these maps seems unrivaled by no other's - so put it to good use!

I know there are some Mega Man fans here!  In the "Mega Man: Robot Master Challenge", I ask six of my friends to try to name all 86 Robot Masters.
73  General Boards / Maps Of The Month / 2017/01: Crystal Warriors (Game Gear) - zagato blackfist on: December 31, 2016, 10:09:18 PM

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to zagato blackfist's Crystal Warriors (Game Gear) maps.

The evil Jyn are conquering the land, so Princess Arliel assembles her forces to reclaim the stolen elemental crystals and then take on the evil emperor Grym.  This is the story of Crystal Warriors, a Fire Emblem-style tactical game on Sega's portable, the Game Gear.

Though we have had quite a number of epic fantasy games featured here, including those of the tactical variety, this is the first time that a Game Gear game has been recognized for the Maps Of The Month honour!  Thank zagato blackfist for bringing this to our attention (as well as its Japanese-only sequel, Royal Stone (J)).  zagato has also provided the stats of the units that you will encounter on Princess Arliel's quest.  Plus, zagato had also noticed that the areas in each Round are actually continuous with each other, so he has also assembled a full map showing the game world in its entirety.  Now that's going above and beyond!

So to recognize the effort put into mapping this gem of a game, zagato blackfist's Crystal Warriors (Game Gear) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for January 2017.
74  General Boards / Maps Of The Month / 2016/12: Kirby's Adventure (NES) - Will Mallia on: November 30, 2016, 09:43:29 PM

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to Will Mallia's Kirby's Adventure (NES) maps.

King Dedede appears to be stirring up trouble in Dream Land again by stealing the Star Rod and dividing it into seven pieces which are protected by his allies.  With the inhabitants of Dream Land now unable to dream, Kirby sets forth on an adventure to recover and restore the Star Rod to return it to the Fountain Of Dreams.

Did you manage to get one of the hottest items this holiday season?  No, not a Hatchimal...  I'm talking about the NES Classic Edition, of course!  Of the thirty classic 8-bit NES games built into it, Kirby's Adventure is the one that was released latest for the original hardware.  It's also the game that was most recently mapped, and now is your source for all of the maps for all of the games on the NES Classic Edition!  An entire console mapped, wow!

Kirby's Adventure made it onto the short list for the NES Classics Edition because, well, it's one of the best NES games ever!  Just play it!  Great gameplay, great graphics, and it's just a whole lot of fun playing as Kirby (previously in Kirby's Dream Land for the Game Boy, but here in his console debut).  It introduces Kirby's power-absorbing ability, so it's a pretty big deal.  And speaking of big, it's one of the biggest NES games too, at six megabits!

So to recognize the effort put into mapping the last huge Nintendo-published NES game, Will Mallia's Kirby's Adventure (NES) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for December 2016.

I know offhand that one of the Downtown Nekketsu games is River City Ransom, and that as well as Final Fantasy III (J) and Solomon's Key are mapped, so that's something.

If people are interested in mapping them, I could add them to the list in the first post.  Do you think I should?
