Looks good and consistent across the animated tiles. It really looks empty and simple though after seeing the color version, but that has nothing to do with you.

I'm pretty open-minded too. Pretty much anything goes except country, which makes me want to both throw up in disgust before wanting to blow my brains out to stop the pain... *ahem*.



I like a little of everything as long as its good and not sung by a woman (I can tolerate very few female voices when singing as they almost always get on my nerves, unlike guy voices who overall just seem to have more variety).



Some of my favourite songs/pieces:



Classic:

-Tocatta and Fugue in D minor (Johann Sebastian Bach)

-Moonlight Sonata (Ludwig van Beethoven)

-Dance Macabre (Saint-Saëns)

-The Planets (Gustav Holst)



Specific albums:

-Outside (David Bowie, and pretty much everything else he's done)

-Voyeurs (Two, which was Rob Halford's short-lived two-members band. Everyone seems to say it's some of his worst work, yet I really love this album)

-Foo Fighters (by the band with the same name; overall the most consistently good album they'Ve made in my opinion)

-Mellon Collie (Smashing Pumpkins)



Other artists:

-Depeche Mode

-David Bowie

-Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, Macross Plus)

-Joe Hisaishi (almost all Miyazaki movies)



I'm sure there's a lot more stuff but I just can't think of any right now.

There aren't any blockbuster anywhere near where I live. There is a video rental/independant cinema who has a lot of DVDs of foreign movies and I'm pretty sure they'd have Kurosawa, but it's on the other side of town and I don't have a car, so I'd really need to be motivated to spend 2 hours just to make the trip to rent a movie. Maybe someday.

Revned Said:
Howdy. Kurosawa isn't obscure. Far from it. He's widely acknowledged as the best Japanese movie director. At least see Seven Samurai. It's on IMDB's Top 10. As for the other one, if you want to see it, you can get it for free off Archive.org.

Well, I already knew that, but I meant obscure in that he's not that mainstream, and his work is hard to find in rental form around here.

It's weird how nobody thought of doing this before now. The maps on VGMaps are shrunk which, to me, is criminal for screenshot maps. Good luck Revned, and more than anything, have fun ;)

For those who know me, I fully intend to concentrate on this project until it is finished (unlike my usual habit of switching project every few week).



As for the slow rate this is going, it's taking a bit longer than usual because I'm trying to make all the maps you'd ever need for the game. That means I'm making maps which don't show any of the special blocks and maps which show all of them. Plus, I'm also tracking all the major changes which happen to the stages as the game progresses (like a door being destroyed, a whole room which wrecked, etc). Plus, I've got a lot of family trouble to take care of which eats a lot of my time (basically, my godmother which I recently renewed contacts with got a shit load of problems with her mental health, her employers, the police, not to mention increasingly severe suicidal thoughts) as well as needing to put in some overtime after regular work hours and during the weekends.



In short, it's hell trying to balance everything. Still, I'm hoping to finally finish this game in the coming weeks.

Nice way to see it. So yet again, I had the right idea from the start, I just couldn't justify it. You're like my voice of reason Revned :D

Map Gab / Metroid Fusion (GBA)

Well, for those just dropping in, things are going well mapping this, which is why I haven't really posted anything on the new board yet. I'm also waiting to see if this board has tags like the old one for images and links.



Progress so far:



Main Deck   : 99.9% (actual maps complete with and without special blocks; missing map title and final presentation)

Sector 1 SRX: 99.5% (actual map complete with blocks, not without)

Sector 2 TRO: 80.0%



I had a question for those familiar witht the GBA Metroid games, though I'm also looking for Revned's advice considering we often talked about little details like this when mapping the Oracle Zelda games.



Now, this game is almost entirely event based. As such, sometimes doors will become locked, trapping you in a room until you've defeated the boss inside. Now, for one-time events like a boss, I'm leaning toward putting a regular door on the inside of the room to show that once the boss is gone, you can travel freely in and out.



However, there are rooms where you will always be trapped since the enemies inside you need to kill always respawn once you leave. Should I put locked doors inside the room or not? Right now, I put regular doors but I'm open to suggestions.

Welcome back Revned! And about your movies, well I can't say I've ever seen any of them. I don't really know anyone who've knowledgeable in obscure (but high quality) movies with whom I could watch some.

Well, identify is perhaps a strong word. I just really liked the character and found it cool, that's all. Plus, I'vealways had a fondness for the latin names Terra and Luna for Earth and the Moon respectively.

I told Mephea last night one AIM, but she's still taking a break from the mapping world for a while. She isn't intent on leaving for good however, so I'm eager to see her post again (chatting on AIM is kinda hard since she's always playing WoW between replies ;) )

Yeah, Final Fantasy VI all the way; to this day the only videogame RPG I ever really played and finished. I could identify with Terra at the times in that, who wouldn't want to be a living magic weapon of tremendous power?



As for being confused for a female, some people did (I once responded to a sex joke as a male but since the person who made the joke thought I was a girl, she took tremendous offense at my reply, which wasn't helped by the fact that she was bipolar and and in a very volatile mood that day). I had to correct people a few times, though one of my past avatar was a South Park-like face with glasses and goatee which kinda announced my gender right away. I guess it all started with this fascination I have with strong-yet-not-badass-cliche female characters that started way back when with Penny from Inspector Gadget. I moved on from there.



It kinda reminds me of an old PVPOnline comic strip where Francis, the teen gamer, asked if it was weird for him to play a female warrior on a board RPG. He was reassured it was perfectly normal to play out fantasies at his age. The last panel is the same group decades later where he's *still* playing the same  female character and everyone's looking at him in a 'weirded out' way :)
