Haha, ah well, I dont think you were ever this late. Its great to hear from you too.
Wow, they really are spread out. Ouch, German and Design. :/ Id hate to be trapped inside. This week has been unreal. Im lucky I dont have sunburn. Haha, lucky - I want to go to a nineteenth. Still, I have five parties in the next two weeks so Ill have loads to do, lol. The first ones tomorrow night. :3
Ah right. That would make sense alright. I suppose now you have a free year though. At least its a break from exams. And saving up could be good. Im still saving for a car, lol. Ill never get there. I only have £200 and Ive been saving for over a year. Haha, Im terrible at saving. Oh awesome. That sounds pretty cool. We had to pick our Leaving Cert subjects a while back. Mine are simple enough, but I need them to get into any of the courses I want to do. Im doing English, Irish, Maths, French, Accounting, Physics and Chemistry.
Haha, ah right. I know the feeling. xD HGSS are awesome games besides the grinding. I could really use a VS Seeker. Im refusing to restart because Ill have to grind all over again. I promised myself Id finish the game. Ah, the Pokéwalker. I lost mine to the washing machine before I even got to Kanto. xD I did manage to get Elekid and a couple of the others though. A wild Hoothoot joined me. I put it in Day-Care so now its at like Level 50 or something. I cant be bothered taking it out. xP
Haha, oh awesome. :] Sure, if you could send me the sketch whenever youve time, Ill gladly do the overworlds. Haha, the mystery things are savage. I cant wait to see the thread. :3 Aw man, well Im hopeless at scripting. Hopefully its an easy fix, whatever it is.
No problem. Yeah, I hate things being spread out. We had like one or two summer exams a day and like three hours of study. It lasted six days! They could have easily just given us three a day for three days. It was the boring thing Ive ever sat through.
Well, at least youll be done forever soon. Thats good. Oh awesome. Yeah, footing turf sounds really bad like a foreigner trying to fit in. Final Fantasy 13 looks so cool. I really want it but I dont have an Xbox. My brother might be getting one for his birthday next month, so if he does I may just spend some more of my car money :3
Yep, I saw it on Serebii a few days ago. Yeah, it does look really impressive. I cant wait to see how they make it work. I love my laptop. Its like my second phone. <3
Nope, sorry, I phrased that badly. Ive been finished since May 19th. Im busy working at the pub (Im not sure if Ive mentioned my parents own a pub before?). Anyway, yeah, it was knocked and rebuilt last June. It has to be finished in just over a month so were really busy. It looks a lot better than before, so hopefully it wont just be full of old people when its done. x) Thanks, its great to hear from you too. No problem, my message is just as long. xD
Hi, it's been ages! No worries, you're entitled to be busy/late, I've been late loads of times- it's fine, it's just great to hear from you, man :)
Regarding the Leaving, thanks- 4 more left. I finish next Thursday, feckin second last day. Music :/ but it's the 3 between now and Thursday I'm more worried about. Friday will be hell- German and Design. Monday will be very "meh", it's Physics. Just want to get them out of the way, and get on with the summer. So much drink to catch up on. What's brilliant is my best friend's 19th is on next Saturday too, so there's like.. Twice as much drinking to do. I exaggerate the amount I'll drink myself, but it'll still be class :P
Actually, no, I'm not going to college until next year. Talked it over with the aul ones, we decided I was a bit too young for it, this year- I'm 17 in September, so like a whole year of being in College but not being a legal adult. I kinda regret the decision now, but there's nothing else for it but to look for a job for the year and save up for it. When I do go, I'm thinking of doing Arts in NUIG, for Irish and Maths teaching. Originally I'd Irish and Music in mind, but NUIG doesn't do it, and I've the year to think it over, anyway.
HGSS... I actually restarted since, haha. Was tired of trying to grind. I'm at Clair's gym now though, with a Meganium, Pidgeot, Graveller and Gyarados all around 38. I went through it alot slower this time, and made use of the PokeWalker. I usually just shook the crap out of it, but I've unlocked a load of the courses on it, and got things like Smoochum and Elekid and Murkrow before you can get them in-game, which is cool. If you walk around without anything in it, a Wild Pokemon "joins" you for a stroll after a while, which is cool. Usually common things like Zubat, but I was still surprised, as I hadn't remembered it was in my pocket.
Ah, the sprite. Still haven't done out properly, but got the sketch done. You'll see in my album the latest Infinity spoiler- put up yesterday- has the Player's silhouette. That was literally a 3 second edit of Red's overworld (I just added hair to the top- I think I'm still gonna need you to do it for me, if you want), I left it black because of that. It's so easy to look mysterious, lol- just don't show certain things and constantly say "coming soon". It is though, I just have to solve some scripting problems I'm having- after several attempts, I now actually know how to write several different kinds of scripts for the game- but they don't work. I mean, I'm absolutely certain that I'm doing everything right, but it just won't work, so I've to see if anyone knows what's going on. Should be fine, though, I expect to have a thread within a few weeks of finishing the Leaving.
Thanks again for the well-wishing. It's just so damn tedious, I just want them to be done. I mean, some people are finishing tomorrow, whereas the music class (incl. me, duh) are waiting til next thursday. They should have a few subjects going on at once. Complicates the system and all, but... Well, I wouldn't care :D
Another day off tomorrow, six or seven hours wasted studying :( bleah. It'll pass.
Despite my whinging, I'm good thanks :) got €50 from my uncle for footin turf (you can't say "footing, it feels wrong :3), I want Final Fantasy 13 after the Leaving... But I'm not quite sure why.
Have you seen the 3DS? It actually seems pretty impressive. But something else I want but haven't enough money for... Feck it, I'm saving up for a laptop.
So are you still in school now? Or did I pick that up wrong? Again, great to hear from you dude :) (so sorry for the uber long message, lol).
I’m really sorry for the massive wait. I’ve been so busy over the past few weeks, though I doubt anything’s been as bad as what you have to go through right now.
First of all, thank you for the happy birthday. :3 Also, good luck in the Leaving, or whatever’s left in it. Sorry I didn’t get to say it sooner. We’ll hopefully have a lot more time to talk through the summer. :)
-Now for the big post-
I hate when I get errors in Opera after typing out huge messages. It’s one of the worst feelings ever. My internet doesn’t work either. D: I’m hopefully getting broadband soon. Well, that Meteor thing. I’ll keep annoying my mam about it until she gets it.
Haha, awesome. That sounds like fun. I really can’t wait to get out of school. You’re going to be in college next year then?
I wait downloading Opera over and over again, lol. Especially when I lose all of my bookmarks. D:
Haha, I’m not sure what to use. I’m still on Opera Mini 4, because it’s really grown on me. Opera Mini 5 just isn’t the same, lol. It’s cool, but I can’t get used to it.
Oh cool. Yeah, I haven’t finished it yet either. I only have 13 badges. My team is Meganium, Arbok, Ampharos, Togekiss, Espeon and Slowbro. They aren’t that balanced but that’s what I ended up with, haha.
Glad to help. It was much easier than I expected it to be. I can’t wait to see the trainer sprite. If you have anything at all to do, feel free to let me know. I should have a load of time for spriting soon. I’m dying to see what the hat looks like. :3
I’m pretty good, thanks. How about you? No worries about the wait. I’m sorry I took so long though. Take your time. We’ll have plenty of time to talk in another while. Again, good luck with what’s left of your exams. Sorry I didn’t say that sooner.
God damn it, I'm getting worse. I'm really sorry, yet again I honestly tried to reply (albeit only a few days ago, but...) I typed out the full thing, and got an Application error from Opera, which made it close, so I went "Damn it, I'll try again later". Sorry, procrastination's a bi***.
From a quick reply to over a month. Fecking irony. Anyway, no, that sounds easy- it's what I do. It's what I HAVE to do, our internet isn't worth trying to use, so I have to use Opera Mini all the time (literally).
Well, the college party was good, but you can't beat a good aul night out with the lads.
(Jesus, got another Application Error. I'm copying everything though, so I don't have to type it ALL again. Actually, I lost a good thousand characters there... I'mma redownload Opera about now, haha...)
On that topic, what version do you use? 5.0, or 4.2..?
(DAMN. Another Error. Right, I'm switching to 5.0 right now).
Ok, this just keeps screwing up on me. 4th attempt, lol.
My team is Typhlosion, Poliwrath, Hypno, Togekiss, Munchlax and Raichu. All around level 72, so I still haven't beaten Red, though I rarely get to play it, anyway.
Oh, that Gold overworld is perfect, like the rest. Thanks SO much, you make life alot easier, :D.
I'll actually have another job for you in a few weeks- spriting an OW of your character? I've not finished the Trainer sprite, but when I do I'll show you. It's essentially the design you showed me, but tweaked a bit.
So, how're you doing? Sorry again for the month long wait . Hopefully I'll be a bit more diligent after the Leaving's done :/
Haha, aww sure, what can ya do? Theyre only the mocks. :L Haha, ouch. Im sure youll be grand for the Leaving though. :D Haha, I use Opera Mini 95% of the time. I make my sprites on my laptop and just transfer everything to my laptop then, lol. Its a lot easier even though it doesnt sound it. Ah, two months now... :/ Oh the pressure! I have pretty much three weeks of school left and some work experience. :D Haha, oh nice. That sounds like fun. :D
Wow, that party just told kicked the-party-I-went-tos ass! That sounds like so much fun. :O I want to be in sixth year! :L Aww, Kick Ass? D: I WANT TO SEE THAT SO BADLY. McLovins in it. D: I have no money left though. D:
Yep, memory pictures are the best. :L Especially when they arent all revolving around you. :D We did, but Id say it wasnt as good as that apartment party was. :L I have yet to be caught. And I have another litre of vodka stashed in one of my drawers.
Sure a different name wouldnt make too much of a difference. By the time the game is done, the new name would probably be revealed anyway. You should include them both, regardless. Thats the least of our worries, really. Aww well. Im sure that streak will be back eventually. Times flying anyway so youll have the Leaving done in no time. Your tiles sound awesome. I cant wait to see everything. Yeah, I think Im starting to improve on things too. Everytime I do something, its makes my last thing look like crap. Haha, youre miles ahead of me. :L I can get overworld sprites from VBA (thanks to you :L) and make more from scratch. Thats it though. And Im TERRIBLE at shading anything, lol.
Sure, I might as well work away with the job Ive got anyway. Ive actually done Gold sprites. I have the front, side and back. I need you to take a look at them before I go ahead with making the others though. The hat and the bag are impossible. Im basing him off the Gen IV Gold. Is that right? Christ, all the 18ths! I cant wait till Im that age... My days are so uninteresting at the moment. :L
Oh yeah, awesome! I got SoulSilver as well. Theyre epic. Im going as slow as I can. Im at the Pokémon League. Im getting my party up to Level 55 at the moment. Ive been breeding Pokémon, doing the Pokéathlon and spending time doing things that never really take time to do. :L I need to make it last the whole Easter holidays. :L I got it the day it came out so Im doing pretty good. I finished Pearl in two days so I dont want to repeat that. :L Lol, I hate level-grinding. What Pokémon do you have? :D
Mocks were shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite. I did alright in Irish and Music, but nothing else. My tutor/form teacher actually took me aside and asked if anything was wrong. I said no, and that I was a lazy prick. Case closed. But I've not touched my computer in yonks now (Opera Mini ftw), so it's just studying, and occasional phone-internetting from now on.
I'm really glad of the holidays, too- I took a wee break for two days last week, and went to my friend's place in Galway City.
My college friend.
It was BRILLIANT. There was this house party that I left at about half one, then about 7 of us went back to my friend's apartment and.. Kinda crashed. Well, some of them went back home after a while, others went to bed, til it was just me and this guy called Brandon, who decided for us to watch Wolf Creek at half 3. He fell asleep mid-film, which was good, coz I'm embarrassingly jumpy for any horror film, so... Yeah:D
I got about an hour and a half sleep on the floor (it was surprisingly comfortable, more so than the armchair).
Then the next day we saw Kick Ass. Man, see it. Just see it, it... It.. You have to see it, simple as that. It's fecking epic.
Anyway, memory-pictures rock, I always take videos of drunken friends and piss them off the next day. Sounds like ye had great craic, so .
Oooh, deceiving parents... Been there! Good thing you didn't get caught, lol.
Drunk friends are great, though, they'll believe anything... I haven't got anything to back that up, but.. Yeah, that's all :D
Anyway, I never thought about Zoroark having a different name- but you're right. Although I did some pretty cool sprites for Zoroa and Zoroark- animations and all- so I'll see what I'll do. It's a pity I can't go on the computer much, I was on a spriting-streak. Seriously, trees and mountains were coming out of my ears. I hope I can get back to it, it was really convenient:D No, but I'm glad I no longer depend on tiles made by others. It's funny to think there was a time when I couldn't even insert my own tiles- I'd have to use pre-made Roms with different tiles. Yeah, learning is great, lol.
Anyway, regarding anything to do with the hack from now on, there's no rush on anything. I definately wont make any real progress til after the Leaving, so it's unimportant, to a certain extent.
Anyway, overall, things are fine. My best friends' 18th- twins- is on Saturday, so.. BOOZE.
Oh, yeah, I got Heart Gold! Got to Red in 3 days, but was twenty levels below, so.. I need time to level-grind, lol.
Haha, no bother. Take your time. I know youve got a lot to be doing. Im not any better anyway, sorry. Ah, I hate when that happens. Its happened to me three times. I never know if Im going to get a reply finished. I keep drawing blanks now and just giving up on PC. I think I have a bit of time for stuff now again though. Oh Christ, that sounds horrible. I actually have no idea how Ill get through that. :O
Haha, oh wow. Nice. Lucky you. I love when that happens. :D I actually went out the other night too. :L It was my friends 16th so we went out. I split a litre of 50% vodka with my friend. :L I dont know how we survived. It was hilarious though. :L He passed out and eight of us who couldnt stand called his brother and tried to carry him down the hill. He dropped him six times twice on his head. :L He got sick over every single person except for me. :D I was supposed to be staying at his house but his parents told his brother to take me home. Instead, I went to my other friends house and my parents dont know a thing about it. :L Awesome night. :L (Well, besides the fact that we thought my friend was dead). :L We took pictures of us holding him for the memories. :L Theyre so funny. :L
It does feel weird going back to this old conversation. Anyway, we can end it now. :L Yeah, the twins were hilarious. They get paranoid about everything. :L Oh wow, that wouldve been funny. :L I really wish wed done that. :L One guy did announce something about a teacher over the speaker thingys though. I just wish I could remember what.
Yeah, an all-lads school is pretty weird at first. Im used to it now though, I guess. Monogender. :L Anyway, yeah, theres not much to choose from where I live. Theres four schools:
1. The knacker school: Full of the future dropouts and tinkers. Theres always fights there after school and most people who get into trouble with anything happen to be from there. I like Pokémon so.... That one was out... :L
2. The posh school: Its private school. You pay to go there. 90% of people accepted are Protestants. And yeah, I cant afford that. :L
3. The convent: Self-explanatory. The girls school. If our school collapses (which is likely enough :L) we get to go there. :D
4. My school: All-boys. Its a small school and its falling down. :L Its a laugh most of the time though.
You should be, cos it looks so awesome. :D The suspense is killing me. :L Ah okay. Ill try again this time so. Youre choosing the first four so. I dont mind what Flying-Type. I like Pidgeot and Noctowl, but I dont really mind what. I like all of them really so it wont matter that much to me. If theres Fakemon, thatll be awesome too. :3
As for the Normal type, the only ones that really come to mind at the moment are Granbull, Furret and Zangoose. If you have any suggestions, Im happy to hear them. I honestly dont mind how my team looks. If youd prefer to make the whole team yourself to keep it balanced better, Id be perfectly cool with that. You know a lot more about this stuff than I would. I never paid attention to that kind of stuff before.
Im not too sure on the cool type either. Marowak, Primeape, Mawile, Masquerain, Scizor.... Im not sure really? Thanks for explaining all that to me anyway. I know exactly what you mean now. I just cant think of anything for some reason. D: Zoroark is kinda cool but he might end up with a totally different English name. Whatever you think would work the best, Id say. Im pretty hopeless. :L
Wow, I think I actually got through this post this time. :D Im doing great, thanks! Im so glad its the holidays. :D Howre you? Most of those projects are done, thank God. :O They were so boring. This week I have to make a video though. Possibly a music video for a Lady GaGa song. :L How did the mocks go? :D Hows your Easter been?
I actually just realised that you asked me to do a Gold sprite which I havent done yet. Im so sorry, I totally forgot. D: Ill have it for you as soon as possible.
Jesus, I've never been this late. Really sorry, Andrew, everything's been hectic. I haven't actually spoken to any of my closer friends (you, Kai and Sav) here at PC in ages, which is retarded. (I wrote about twelve replies to this over the course of the two weeks, but I never got to finish, and ended up closing the browser for something). I've had to put a lot of work into school recently.. And it's so damn tedious.
That said, I went out last night, and it was brilliant. I didn't have to spend a cent all night. It was my friend's birthday, but everyone bought my drinks as well :D Ah, I love people with money . Lol, jk.
Anyway.. It feels strange to refer back to stuff we were talking about two weeks ago, so.. I'll be short and sweet.
Disneyland, yes, was all round epic for me, too. I'd go again, no question:D
(that was hilarious by the way, about those twins. Would have been even funnier if someone went "Hey, *one of the twin's names*, your the BOMB" really loudly. We did that to each other on the plane, til the teacher told us to stop joking about stuff like that :/)
Oh, you're in an all lads school then? That'd be strange. I mean, not for you, surely you're used to it by now- I've always been in a mixed school. It's hard to imagine being in a monogender (wtf) school. (Ok, no, there HAS to be a proper word, in place of Monogender. I.. But...
I got nothing).
Anyway, thank you, I'm rather proud of my little teaser, I'm surprised I'm actually getting feedback on it. But unfortunately, I haven't worked on it in ages, I've been to preoccupied. That, and I'd probably have creative-block if I tried.
Nevertheless, the team-thing: I didn't explain properly, at all. Here is exactly what the rival needs on their team- I'll explain the various things- Grass Type
Flying Type Normal Type Cool Type.
Ok, the first three, in Italics- they depend on the starter chosen. For example, in Diamond, if you pick Turtwig, the Rival ends up with Infernape, Roserade, and Floatzel. It's to keep the team balanced.
The Flying type, is that region's signature Flying-type Pokemon- I think I explained that, in my last comment. If I have Fakemon, then this Flying type'll be one. If not, then it's for you to decide.
Normal type- self explanatory. Preferably something that can take a few hits, but isn't a total wall (I mean, nothing like Chansey, Snorlax or Miltank, else the battle's would take too long). Other than those, anything goes.
And lastly, the "Cool Type". Basically, it's an uncommon, but not a rare/legendary Pokemon. Like Heracross, or... Grumpig, or Lucario- preferably not Heracross or Lucario, as Heracross's been done by both Green and Barry, and Lucario has turned into a noob's legendary Pokemon. But, be imaginative for this one- be random.
Oh, yeah, for any of these, they can be from any Gen (even if you want Zoroark for the Cool- type, go for it), and any region.
Ok, now that I've finally replied to you successfully, how the hell are you doing? How're those projects going?
Sorry, everything's been really busy over the last while. I'm sick again today. Next week should be pretty busy too. All of the work is beginning to pile up. So many projects. D:
It's great that your mocks are over with. I hope you did well. :D Haha, yeah I hate going back to school after not being there in so long. Especially when they throw all the work at you the minute you're back.
Heh yep, that's me. I just decide I'm hungry in the middle of the night and get up to make something. xD
Nice. xD But yeah, I completely agree. I was afraid that I'd spend all of my money on food over there. O.O
Yeah, I love croissants... just not those ones... I was expecting the French ones to be a lot nicer. They were the last time I remember. Meh, I suppose you can't expect much more from a two star hotel with fold out beds, lol.
Haha, really? I thought it was unreal. It was basically a six-year-old's imagination, but it still looked awesome. All of the buildings were cool. :3 The pink castle was one of the coolest things I've seen in my life. It was so much better than the historical stuff. xD Yep, the rides were awesome. Yeah, I thought Space Mountain went really quickly too. It was great though. The second time, it was even better. I remember it a lot better anyway. :3 Pirates of the Caribbean was so much cooler than I expected. My friend got soaked, lol. I was at the edge, but I pushed in when it picked up speed. xD
I'm up for any job you have. Haha, no problem. I'll have it for you as soon as possible. :3 Sorry for the wait, by the way. I'll try not to delay things too much anymore. I suck at spriting in general. OWs are about all I can do. xD Everything else just turns out terrible.
Thankfully, my ear's finally back to normal. :D It was unbelievably irritating. Oh man, yeah, toothaches are horrible too. I didn't think it could get infected from not popping either. I was told that I probably infected it myself, lol. I kept going at it and trying a load of stuff to make it pop. That was pretty stupid of me, but yeah. xP
Haha, that sounds hilarious. xD I love paranoid people. There's twins in my year and it was they're first time flying so we threw coins in they're hoods so they'd go off in the security things. They were both panicking at everything. It was a little mean, but it was hilarious. xD
Haha, nice one. Ye sound like ye had a load of fun. We didn't get to do anything like that. Our room was the one that everyone went into. At one stage we had about 25 people squashed into it. Nobody could move. xD Our school's all lads as well, which made it less fun. D: The only girls in the whole hotel were in sixth class, so yeah, we didn't go there. xP
Oh, awesome. :3 Yeah, no problem. Don't worry, legendaries and teams full of starters really aren't my thing. xD Well, I have a few Pokémon that I love taking around with me. I'm just going to assume that I shouldn't have another fire, water or grass type. I'll give you an idea so you can choose which would fit the best. If you'd prefer me to be more specific with the three, you can just say. I've always liked Arbok, Scizor, Ampharos, Weavile, Mawile and Banette.
Ah, I also just saw your signature. That looks amazing. The game's called Pokémon Infinity then, I'm guessing? :3
Yeah, that too it's pretty uncanny, but wicked nonetheless.
MOCKS ARE FECKING OVER. Yes!! And no homework for this weekend. I still don't really feel like going to school on Monday, though- I'm used to having major tests the last week of the term, ergo going back to school right after will feel really weird. I'll go in Monday and be all -.- lol.
Yeah, me too. I'm always eating. After a night out, I'd get home at maybe 1.30 and put on a pizza. And devour it myself, haha.
Oh, yeah, France is generally expensive for relatively mediocre food [/wordage]. I... Remember not buying much, specifically because of that:D
Ah, croissants. I love them, but the ones we got for breakfast in France were... Hard. :/ Nuff said, eh?
DisneyLand was brilliant, did you think? For me it was like this strange place that came from the imagination of a 6 year old, what with the pink castle and all x3. I loved the rides. I remember Space Mountain. I dunno, I think I spaced out or something while I was on it, as I'd only recollection of about 15 seconds of it (I mean, I remembered all the massive smoke/launch thing where you heard the countdown, but once the lights started going mad I just remember a few seconds of it. Strange, but it was still fun as hell).
Oh yeah, I have a job for you, if you're up for it? Could you do overworlds of the HGSS Gold/Male hero sprite? I actually gave OW spriting a go yesterday, and... It left me totally perplexed how ugly I could make a tiny person :/ I mean spriting in general was my original specialty in anything related to hacking, and I've even been doing decent tiles recently (trees, Pokemon Centres, etc), but I suck at OWs, lol.
Anyway, that's annoying, bout your ear. I hate when it's something like that- it's really irritating but you still can't do much about it. Like a bad toothache or something (they're freakin AWFUL..). I didn't know they could get infected by not popping, though. Lol, I remember when we went on the plane, a lad in my class (a bit feckless, to be honest) was convinced he'd go permanently deaf if he wasn't constantly chewing gum. Watching him try to throw away the old piece whilst getting a new one was hilarious, lol. So did you have much craic in the rooms there? At one stage, there were about 5 boys and 6 girls in my room. We played dares, haha '. Then again, that was second year, so I suppose ye were more mature and talked and such, as I would nowadays?? (eek, I still feel awkward, ha).
Oh, by the way, for the hack, when you're the pseudo rival (ie, when the player is a girl), what kind of Pokemon do you like? Bear in mind, though- the rivals of the official games usually follow a theme thing- the starter that's strong against the player, the main Flying type of the region (Green has Pigeot in FRLG, Barry has Staraptor in DPPt, etc), and a Pokemon that's weak against the Player's starter. So leave those to me. But that leaves three slots for whatever you want, so... Go:D they can be from any region, too- but no Legendaries (of course), or other starters, please
I know right. It's really weird. :o Not to mention, we both like Pokémon enough to join this forum. And we figured all that out from over the internet. Strange. o.O
I know right. xD Aww man, I hate when that happens. You feel deaf at first and then the weird ringing noises kick in. Thanks, lol. I'm sure it will. It's definately improving anyway.
Lol, that sounds like something I'd do. xD I'm always at the chipper. I always get large everything as well, and eat the rest of everyone elses food after, lol. I had to go straight home afterwards because my mam was late for work. I just went home and ate twelve waffles, lol. We had absolutely nothing to eat. I swear nobody buys food unless I complain its gone. My sister made me pancakes then because I got her stuff in Disneyland. xD I got along with everyone in my family for one day which was awesome. :3
Yeah, I don't know how the French survive. I mean, they're surrounded by McDonalds. I saw at least 30 different ones while I there. Seriously. :O But then, they give you nothing to eat. I almost starved. It's dead expensive too.
Oh, Disneyland! That sounds awesome. That reminds me though, I didn't get to eat anything that day because I got sick. xD For breakfast, me and some other guy got these croissants. There were only four there and we were early for breakfast so we got two each. They made us both sick. I couldn't eat for the rest of that day. I was perfect again after I got sick though. xD I still went on Space Mountain and all the awesome stuff. I was afraid to eat after that. I skipped breakfast the next morning, hence the twelve waffles. xP Wow, three paragraphs about food, one of those about getting sick. I think it's time to move on, lol.
Aww, sure twenty minutes is a long time. I'd actually be surprised if I finished an English exam. I've only ever done it once and it wasn't in the Junior Cert. I'm sure your story will still go pretty well. If you're a good writer, they'll see it even if you don't have a proper ending. At least everything else went well.
Ooh, I'd hate the Design exam. I'm a language person though so I'd find German alright. I get high Bs and low As without doing work for most languages. Well, that was for the Junior Cert and in TY. The Leaving Cert's probably a hell of a lot worse. I'd say I'd be okay though. I actually found a difference between us! You're good at short stories and I'm not. Mine are always terrible. I always manage to include a haunted house. xD You can't get much more pathetic than that. My endings never make sense either and I always have too many characters. xD Anyway, that's the way to go. Save the worrying the Leaving Cert.
Thanks, lol. The other one was really old and there was so much wrong with it. The and everything looked terrible. I prefer the new one by a mile. Nah, I think the ear's a little weird-looking. I'll get over it though. xP It's not very noticable.
Oh, that sounds savage. I really like the way it's looking. I haven't actually read it, but I've heard a bit about it. It sounds interesting. I might have a look for it. Haha, nice. I'm really looking forward to it. That's a really cool idea. :3 It sounds great. That'll be great, having them in the game. Kanto holders are indeed epic. ;D
Aw, you're so lucky. I'd kill for some more snow here. It looks awesome. It's still pretty cool to have some, even if you can't do much with it.
Nope, no ear drops, lol. I had them before and hated them. They stung like hell. I'm on some weird antibiotic thing. I don't know what it is, but something's working because I ears are slowly getting better. Yeah, it's painful at times. Sometimes it kicks in and sometimes I wouldn't even notice. It was killing me last night and I didn't have a clue what to do. It died down after a while though. The worse was Sunday night. I got no sleep all night. It hasn't been so bad really since that. It's really annoying when my ears keep popping, but they don't go normal ever. They get a bit better, then worse. It's not annoying me too much now though.
Jesus Christ, we have way too much in common:D we're the same age (roughly) the same height (from when you told me ages ago, that's how I know), we're Irish, we have the same colour hair, and recently we've both had ear problems.
This is so cool! Lol. I was at a gig last thursday, I spent too long beside the speakers and my ears were sore and ringing til yesterday. Not as bad as an infection, though, I hope that gets better for you
Oh god, I remember the food in France. I came home starving, as soon as dad picked me up we went to the chippers and I got two hot dogs and a large garlic chips. The food in France is really sparse, everything is tiny and they give you eff all. Although I remember I got a foot-long hotdog in DisneyLand... Mm...
Right! Enough of this food talk!
I ran out of time for the English. I wrote a pretty good story but didn't get in a proper conclusion, so it's... Well it's not even like a cliffhanger or anything. Totally unfinished. Mind you, we had twenty minutes less than we would in the actual exam, so if I had that, I would have finished no bother. I had to shorten two paragraphs to one line, so.. Yeah. But other than that I was fairly happy with my work. Design and German tomorrow, they're both gonna be terrible, but I don't really care about German, so.. Bleah. I definately wont fail anything, I've convinced myself that much. I just wont do very well in everything. But sure feck it, that's what the real Leaving's for:D
That picture is wicked, I like the new stance you gave him. The ear is fine, lol
Anyway, yeah, you 3 are in it. As well as a few of the other Pokedex holders-
do you know anything about the Pokemon Special Adventure manga, no? The Pokedex Holders are basically the man characters of the games- ie, Red, Blue, Green, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald/Wally (two separate characters, though Wally isn't really a Dex Holder), Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. My game is like a custom-gen 5, if you will, with more of a focus on "the bigger picture". If I can, I'll make a trilogy, and the third one will be my "conclusion" to the Pokemon franchise. Lol, joking. Anyway, to make sense of that babble, you 3 are new Poledex Holders. Later in the game you'll meet a few of the others.. ie, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, and probably the Sinnoh ones. I'm saving the Kanto holders for a really special occasion, because they're epic.
Ok, I guess the snow question wasn't totally random, as it was snowing here yesterday. A really light coat of it, but.. Snow, nonetheless:D
So, do you have to take ear drops or something? I'd say an ear infection is fairly painful, yeah?
Awesome. Well, I have a lot more time now. I'll try to be quicker with my replies. You can take your time. I know you have a lot to stress over.
Heh, lucky you. That sounds awesome. We only got to pass through it on the bus. D: Ours was in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by three McDonalds' and a scary looking Chinese-Japanese restaurant. Everyone around us was either Chinese or Japanese. The restaurants were disgusting. They looked like they hadn't been cleaned since they opened. We went to all three. The ones in the inner city were way better, although their large chips were still tiny. Haha, they actually were terrible. Haha, good idea with the soap. Wish I'd thought of that. We just threw them in the bin because they were taking up too much space and we kept getting more. D:
Wow, I can't imagine myself doing mocks right now. I'm sure you'll do great. I haven't been at school yet. I have an ear infection from the plane. My ears wouldn't pop so now they're all messed up. I have a load of free time though so its not all bad. They sound bad. I'm sure you'll be fine though. Usually when I think I failed or got a D in something, I get an A or a B. I think the same happens with a lot of people. It's even better when everyone feels the same about the exam. Anyway, they're only the mocks. It's not the end of the world. That's in June. :3 Well, good luck with your English paper. It'll be grand.
Oh right, yeah. xP I get it now. I've had to do something a bit like that before. Yours sounds a little more complicated though. Portfolio... eww. My school's like the only school in my town who hasn't done one of them in TY yet. I'm sure we were supposed to, but nobody bothered. xD Best of luck with your project too. You'll be able to relax again on Friday. You'll feel better once they're over.
Haha, alright so. xD Ah, I see. Lol, sounds good. That could work. I re-drew my character yesterday (too much time on my hands). The other one had too many problems with it. This one's still not perfect, but it's better. The ear looks a bit strange, but I'll live with it. :3
Alright then. Have you fully decided on the characters roles? Who's going to be in the game again? Me, Sav, Kai and possibly you? Awesome. That sounds cool. I can't wait to see them.
Lol, sure. That'd be perfect. Just let me know exactly who and what you need. I'd be happy to help with whatever. Just throw whatever you need done at me. I've got a lot of free time for the next while.
Oh, savage. It sounds interesting. I can't to see it in the game. :3 I'd say it'll be awesome. :3 Lol, this is like waiting for an official Pokémon game. I can't wait. Oh, no problem. Take your time. When you're ready, you're ready. I'm not going anywhere. xD
Just two more days and they'll be over. Nah, we haven't seen snow since January 10th (according to my pictures). How about you? I'd love to see snow again. There was a small bit in Paris. Not enough to make a snowman or anything though.
Andrew, how's it goin! I completely forgot you were going to France (you actually told me a few weeks ago, I think). No worries at all, man, that's a perfect reason to be late to respond:D
Yeah, when we went to France our hotel was in the dodgy, dirty part of Paris (*cough-RED-LIGHT-DISTRICT*). We stayed in this crap hotel called New Hotel. Sounds a bit like yours- three beds crammed into tiny rooms with literally no space in between them. They weren't fold out, though this was back in '07 or something. We made the best of things and threw the free soap bars at passing Mercedes and such
Well, I've actually been doing mocks this week, too, so thanks for the well-wishing. They started the Thursday before the midterm and will finish this Friday. They've been.. Alright, I suppose. Irish was grand, but the rest were average or awful. But everyone (literally- everyone) had the same reaction afterwards, so I'm not too worried, but still a bit disappointed. Hopefully the rest'll be better. English Paper 1 tomorrow, and short stories are my specialty so hopefully I'll be lucky:D
Jesus, no! Lol, you have to design one entirely through sketching and computer simulation. You design a 3D Model, but that's on the computer (you can just rotate and all. It.. It's a bit complicated to explain, but you'd definately understand. You just draw it in 2D and literally click a few buttons and it becomes 3D. But you have to make a portfolio and all, with all your research and stuff.. That was annoying, but I finally finished the whole project yesterday, sealed and ready to send to the Department. I would be relieved, but the mocks are still on...
Oh right, thanks I wont change it too much, though- however, you'll definately get a hat, lol. You know, it's like a baseball cap, but without the actual cap-part, just the peak? What do you think?
As for the colours, they're grand, I probably wont change them at all. I'm currently trying to sketch my concepts from yeer pictures. Then I can just do pixel overs and there I have my sprites:D
By the way... I've got a bit of an ask. When I have those sprites done, do you think you'd be able to make Overworlds out of them? There'd be a bit more to do- I mean you'd have to do all the running frames and stuff. Anyway, if you ever have time and feel like drawing on a 16x32 canvas for 2 hours, then let me know ;D
Yeah, I've got a pretty good idea for Deoxys. I'm making use of the fact that it has numerous forms- and will be making some new ones.
Deoxys Special Attack, Special Defence and HP Forms, here I come:D lol. I've actually worked out a stat system for all of them, and will be giving them second types and such. I know I said about a month and a half ago that I would PM the story to ye, but.. I haven't got to sit down for a good hour to get it clear for myself yet, so.. Yeah.
Anyway, I'm good. Once these mocks are over, I'll be delighted.
So, on a random note, was it snowing in your area today, by any chance?
