Just hope i can rip out those BGs better because let me tell you they are a nightmare in a half to do.

Yeah tons of work is put into ripping the tiles from this stuff. I commend Toaster & Tamez for even attempting to rip these stages.

Indeed.  Just to give people out there an idea of how tedious this can be, essentially stages can be around 200 images, but not always individual images. 
For example, take a look at this ripped image, noticing the red section I boxed: 



This single image has 32 sections like the one in the red box.  Each section has its own palette.  So you have to rip it 32 times, separating out the parts that don't work from the ones that do.  In the above example ONLY the section in the red box is right. 

Once you get it arranged you come up with the image below...



Baek's stage. If either you or Tamez make that stage, you will become a God among stage makers.

I've always wanted to engage in gentlemanly combat with Shwa. 



I mean how could I get mad at losing against brutiful combos like those?

No problem. 

@Orochi Gill

You posting that you got Super Mario RPG reminded me that I recently reacquired mine. 
I left mine in a closet in my parents' house, and it has been there since I moved out in December, 2000. 



Yes, I got it for $14.97 on clearance at Toys R Us.  Final Fantasy Adventure I got for $11.98 clearance at Target. 
Yes, they are both still sealed.

Xenoblade Chronicles is expensive for a used copy in the U.S. because it was only sold through GameStop, and had a limited initial printing at that. 

I first heard about the game from the early trailer on the Wii's Nintendo Channel where everyone had ugly faces: 

It was called Monado: Beginning of the World back then and I had no idea of the talent behind game. 

Later on I caught wind of Operation Rainfall, and once the game was officially announced that it was finally coming to the U.S. people on GameFAQs were saying that it'd be a good idea to preorder because the game was going to be rare. 
At first the game wasn't.  People were saying how their local GameStop had several copies available and that the doomsayers got people to preorder for nothing. 

A few months later and suddenly it wasn't so easy to find, and online prices soared. 
Some people say that GameStop got another printing made and opened them all up so they could sell them as "used" allowing them to set their own price on the game. 
Same theory goes for Metroid Prime Trilogy. 


I put a couple hundred hours into it and loved every minute.  I'd say it is totally worth it. 
Xenoblade Chronicles X being announced was one of the three main reasons I got a Wii U. 

At first I was a little sad that Yoko Shimomura wasn't contributing to the soundtrack for XCX because that was one of my favorite parts of XC. 
Then I learned it is going to be the guy who composed for Attack on Titan so everything is ok.   ;D

I'm glad they're making more use of the NFC reader in the Gamepad.

I just hope they don't make the figures GameStop exclusive this time.  As a guy who bought 30+ figures over the course of three Skylanders games, I need my options for BOGO sales. 
And especially don't make them random again.  That kept me from bothering with Pokémon Rumble U and Disney Infinity.

A friend of mine asked me to check prices on a 2DS for him, and I stumbled upon this. 
The ad also had Minecraft's card on it, but I don't know what others might be included in the sale. 

Figured some of you guys might be interested.

This reminds me of another old thread.  Characters you'd make if you could be bothered

I tried starting a character last  year around this time, a custom Toshio from Shadow Fighter using Cenobite's rips. 
I even went as far as color separating all his sprites.  Just didn't end up getting much past that. 

I'd really like to make a Tekken 2 Kazuya with his player 2 outfit (with the demon on his back), but I wouldn't have a clue where to start.

Ah, too bad. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with Vindictus, especially Karok. 
I hear they are probably going to get rid of jumping soon.  If that's the case, I recommend making a Karok just to jump smash things with his pillar.  It is a thing of beauty. 

And clashing, of course. 



Damn.  Two years ago.   :bigcry:

Ah, Kurow, yeah he was PJ only sorry can't help with him. 

And I know Fervicante has been offline for a long time.  That's why I suggested to PM li kun.  Since li kun and Fervicante have worked together in the past, he probably has another way of getting a hold of him than here.

You could try PM'ing li kun about them.  He maybe be able to get them for you from Fervicante. 

If you have no luck there, I ripped all the voices from Rival Schools year ago when li kun was looking for them.  I know the quality isn't as high as the Dreamcast, but so long as you aren't making one of the new characters I could send you the RS rips as a last resort.

In regards to the Wi-Fi Connection shutdown, some user on GameFAQs has posted evidence that GLU Mobile is truly to blame for it. 
Since the WFC was run through Gamespy and GLU bought that out, apparently they have been shutting down support for older games. 

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/631516-wii-u/68679524

Quote from one of the supporting links showing that other companies have been affected by this previously. 

Quote
New submitter OldTimeRadio writes "Over the last month, both game publishers and gaming communities alike were surprised to find their GameSpy multiplayer support suddenly disabled by GLU Mobile, who purchased GameSpy from IGN this August. Many games, including Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, Swat 4, Sniper Elite, Hidden and Dangerous 2, Wings of War, Star Wars: Battlefront are no longer able to find (and in some cases even host) multiplayer games. While games like Neverwinter Nights are still able to directly connect to servers if players know the IP address, less-fortunate gamers expressed outrage on GLU Mobile's 'Powered by GameSpy' Facebook page. In an open letter to their Sniper Elite gaming community today, UK game developer Rebellion explained it was helpless to change the situation: 'A few weeks ago, the online multiplayer servers for Sniper Elite were suddenly switched off by Glu, the third-party service we had been paying to maintain them. This decision by Glu was not taken in consultation with us and was beyond our control. We have been talking to them since to try and get the servers turned back on. We have been informed that in order to do so would cost us tens of thousands of pounds a year — far in excess of how much we were paying previously. We also do not have the option to take the multiplayer to a different provider. Because the game relies on Glu and Gamespy's middleware, the entire multiplayer aspect of the game would have to be redeveloped by us, again, at the cost of many tens of thousands of pounds.""


I bought a Wii for Brawl.  I used to play it online religiously every Monday for hours.  I'll miss it, but couch play is better anyway. 
I Brawled this past Thanksgiving with my nieces which was great.  Three of them against me with handicap on and I still won.   :laugh:

Other than that I mostly played Pokemon Battle Revolution, with some Animal Crossing City Folk (before HDCL), Excitebots, TMNT Smash up, Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, and yes, Castlevania Judgment. 

My only regret is not making a point of playing The Last Story online.  I never did get those online-only items.  Guess I'll see if I can grab a few before time is up.
