Well, I'd post more but then work as been piling up lately. The benefit of being a goverment service employee in a satellite office is that when there's no work to do, nobody's around to berate you for browsing the net as you wish.



And since we're hooked up with a simple cable modem instead of being on any sort of goverment network, there's no firewall blocking sites or checking where we're hanging ;)



Anyway, I was planning on writing a small mapping guide soon for GBA games. I just need to put my mind to it and stop mapping long enough to finish it.

I live in Quebec, and without cable or a dish, we don't get shit, no matter how good your antenna is. We're lucky if we can get 2 or 3 of the main french channels, so what would be the odds of an American public station broadcasting with enough power to reach us all the way up here?

I regret never having seen much of it, aside from a few episodes on PBS back when it was included in the basic cable package. I've always enjoyed witty  british comedies, what little of it I've seen anyway.

Okay, I'll share one which happened two nights ago actually. Now, I've spent the last week or so mapping Metroid Fusion like crazy, and ended up spending almost all my time in Visualboy Advance's Map Browser to try and capture the various layers of the screen and beyond.



Well my dream or should I say, nightmare, was all about those tiles and layers. The dream wasn't about me mapping; it was completely divorced from the context and was just about tiles, colors, transparencies, shifting blocks around and trying to composite rooms together. It was really tiring, and frustrating because it was rather unimaginative as far as my dreams go. If I'm going to remember them, I prefer them to be interesting and full of fascinating images and experiences.

Inty Said:
Yeah, i'm so intelligent that i get pushed up years.



Well, that and the British school system is entirely different.

Your browser doesn't support object.

Tell me about it. A guy from France on another board once told me that in his country, college is between elementary school and high school and last for 4 years, so kids there are between 11 and 15 years old. I remarked to him that I'll never claim with pride to have done 3 years in college while in France ;)

Sorry, but I don't need anyone to interprete my wacked-out dreams. What's significant is usually pretty obvious since I know my psyche very well, and the rest is usually a "guess the reference or inspiration" type of game where I try to determine what in my life resulted in which ethereal abnormality.



Too bad my dream file is written mostly in French or consist mostly of hastily typed notes, or else I might share some of the more bizarre dreams with you guys.

After thinking about it all day, I'll probably leave it connected like that, since there's the possibility that such a situation might happen again in the future and there might not be room to leave any spacing between then.



The whole problem comes from that damn boss room. It doesn't seem to conform to the rules of all the other rooms so far (where each map 'square' represents a 240 x 160 pixels area). For example, the upper-left door is thicker than normal because the screen scrolls *left* for 1 tile after entering and I've had to add in 1 additional row of tiles at the bottom because it doesn't show in-game (but does in VBA's map browser, my life savior so far). I'm really hoping there aren't too many such cases in the rest of the game.



I remember something equally frustrating happening to the guys who mapped Zero Mission. In several parts of Chozodia, the room would often be larger by 1 tile in every direction so that when assembled, almost all the rooms overlapped with their neighbors by 1 tile.

Well, you managed to echo all my thoughts on the subject. I wonder if we'll ever get the same ease of use that the previous board has for all the features you just mentionned.



As for the change itself, we in French have a great saying: "Qui choisit prend pire" which literally means "Who choses, picks worse".

« on: April 24, 2006, 10:45:31 am »
Well, I know that I often use GameFAQs to get lists of all the items and secrets for example. I also make sure to play the game through just in case I can find something new. Obscure games don't always have complete FAQs, as I found out with Treasure Master for the NES.

Personally, I'd be fine just being able to read the threads in question.

Okay, the inability to post images and/or links properly is really bothering me...

Need advice on aesthetism this time. There is a set of rooms in Sector 2 TRO where the doors aren't aligned vertically between the rooms. Normally, everything lines up properly except for a few specifics rooms for no reason at all.



[img width= height=]http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/8386/inconsistentdoors3on.png[/img]



If I put the rooms together, the doors are offset vertically, which doesn't look really good, but isn't horrible either, and I prefer this to putting the right part aside with arrow between them. Any thoughts, especially Revned?
