Recently, the staff team has been changed around rather greatly. I suggest you read this thread to give all of your questions answers.
SNN's edit: You mispelled mispelled as 'misspelled'.
BlumeEdit: Haha, no.
BlumeEdit: Spot SNN's typo that no one noticed for a FREE bag of air and possibly half a cookie!
E2: And bond84 gets the bag of air! Since he misspelled answered, the cookie is mine.
/me prepares for SNN to come online and see this
Things are looking a little brighter in the world of custom music - we're cleaning out a bunch of the older, buggier ports from when AddMusic was new, we've pointed out some common issues with music submissions, and we've revived the music request thread for cleaner, friendlier porting. Feel free to drop by and help fill people's requests!
REMEMBER! C3 IS MAY 9TH/10TH! Bring your best game face, and show off your finest work, and you might even get a trophy!
Raibys Edit: Also, Today, April 21st, is Lymia's birthday in case you're interested. :3
Folks, I would like to remind you all that this rule STILL applies for ExGFX submissions - you WILL NOT be punished in case you leave your name written in the "author" field instead of your user ID, but it would be great if you people DID NOT EVEN TOUCH the "author" box, if the ExGFX file was ripped/made by yourself or by another user who IS registered on the site.
Also, please keep in mind that we still do NOT allow IPS patches for the patches section.
In more exciting news, as mentioned before, there are ONLY A FEW DAYS left until C3! Make sure to get all your amazing ROM hacking related work done until May 9th/May 10th - you may even get a trophy if your entries are SO good!
Frankly, I have no idea.It has been brought to my attention that my host had the server down for maintenance yesterday, so this must be a mistake on their part. Judging from the MySQL error message, the table keeping track of the NEW labels broke.
Fixing it was simple, I just removed the old table and created a new one. Due to this, every forum has basically been marked read for every user. I figured it wasn't much of a loss.
Please test your patches, to make sure they were created properly and do not crash the game before submitting them!!! I've had to remove a surprising amount of these recently, and it's getting a bit depressing.
Signs to look out for:
- Patched ROM's filesize isn't rounded off to the MB (1mb, 2mb, etc.)
- Upon loading, SNES9X's info text is yellow and mentions a "bad checksum"
- The game crashes on the titlescreen or selecting a file.
- The patch does nothing.
- The patch doesn't seem to include the ExGFX.
If you see any of these, you might want to try remaking the patch from a clean ROM. If you still don't have any luck, ask politely on the forums.
Another friendly reminder from Oni:
If you notice that your layout is somehow mimicing another user's layout, change the CSS Classes! Also, make sure to backup your codes, that way we don't have people losing them because we didn't back them up after we nuked them!
WE NOW HAVE OVER ONE THOUSAND SUBMISSIONS TO THE ExGFX SECTION!!
Feel free to party. Beer is on the house all day.
SNN'S NOTE: If you have not watched this video, it is of dire importance that you do. Thank you.
ONI's NOTE: Okay, i already made a note of this in the layout request shop, but obviously it didn't sink in. If you notice that your layout is somehow mimicing another user's layout, change the CSS Classes! Also, make sure to backup your codes, that way we don't have people losing them because we didn't back them up after we nuked them!
