Don't stop me,

Thanks for the map rating th' other day, Durry. 'preciate it :) It was weird this morning, not getting up early to belch into a microphone and say 'Drawring' :/

Q: What did the Arts graduate say to the Economics graduate?
A: Would you like fries with that?
Burgers are pretty omnomnom.
But at least you get a pretty picture at the end of it, right? You can make a nice art gallery of cool maps or something. idk XD
I saw that in the Map Rating/Review thread, so I'ma go review it now before I go to bed. I hope that's okay with you :D

Thanks, dude :)
Lol, so the stigma for Arts students exists everywhere, then :D I may actually wind up doing that if I do secondary teaching, but I really don't care :P I DO love burgers.. :D
Yeah, I hate that :D It's always like the best tilesets, and then it's just like "..nnnawwww, I'mma leave this now". I often fins myself spending loads of time and effort on things, for.. Nothing. :D
Thank god there's not a limit on the size of maps. Mine done gone and streched the page a little :D

It is Primary over here in Upside-down-stralia. Yeah, covering a broad range of subjects makes a lot more sense than one or two. I really do wish you luck with getting your first choice, brah :D
I'm doing the course 'Liberal Arts and Science' - Don't let the name fool you, there is nothing more liberal about this course than anything else at uni, they just called it this for some reason. It is basically an Arts major plus a Science minor, so I'll have slightly more reason to be hired over an average Arts student (who will inevitably wind up flipping burgers at McDonalds).
I know right? I always put together an awesome tileset that makes it look epic and then never touch the map again :D

My first preference is Primary School teaching, actually. (Elementary or whatever it is in Australialand :D) Screw Physics, I was terrible at it :D My second choice was Secondary School teaching, which, surprisingly, is easier to get than Primary teaching. Although I guess with the latter you have to cover the basics of ALL subjects, whereas with Secondary teaching you focus on one or two things. (Irish and Musci ftw :D) What about you, what'll you be doing in Uni?
Oh, coolio. Right, well I can look forward to that then, to inserting loads of extravagent tiles and making a map that I'll never use :D
July 14th, 2011 6:05 AMDrFuji
I think I can kind of understand that - R/S/E are my favourite games and I would have loved to make a hack based off them. But since FR get the job done so easily and efficiently (plus it has a million documents) I can't say no to hacking it :D
What was your first preference? Nuclear physics? Brain Surgury? Arts? Somebody is gonna be all growed up :3
Mapping hasn;t been posted yet, but it will be tomorrow afternoon (my time). Right now they just have the threads that need extra preparation time visible :)
July 14th, 2011 5:44 AMgiradialkia
Well... I dunno, really :D I'd really like to have a Ruby or Emerald hack, I don't know why. I think my current (main) hack will remian on Fire Red, but I will certainly keep trying Ruby/Emerald with my other project(s).
No, I'll know by the end of August. It'd be great to get my first choice, but I really don't mind too much. I repeated my final year of secondary school so I'd be 18 for college (ergo a legal adult and stuff), so I'm sick to death of it and would happily do anything in college :D
yeah. I know :D Yeah, I saw the speed hacking one, but naaah. I may also enter the Design a Pokemon competition, but I don't know yet. Also where is this mapping contest? I see it not :/
Actually screw designing a Pokemon, I realised you had to sprite it. I can only sprite extremely mediocre tiles, so nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
July 14th, 2011 5:35 AMDrFuji
So is FR a 'temporary' solution until you can make R/S/E co-operate? When I started hacking I was split between Ruby and FireRed for the first few weeks, but I actually remember deciding to focus on FR because like you I had some difficulty since I overwrote something on Ruby, plus I thought FR had better tiles :D
Oooh college. Have you been accepted into anything yet or are you just being pre-emptive? Uni next year for me brah ;D
I think the time for trying to organise a contest has been long gone XD Yeah, I'm entering the Speed Hacking and the Map Contests. Speed Hacking is going to take up a lot of my time since I've got a pretty crazy story concept that I've had for a while which is going to require a lot of scripts D:
July 14th, 2011 5:21 AMgiradialkia
Oh, well.. I started with Ruby, though never made any extensive plans with a Ruby hack. I dabbled a little with Fire Red, but I spent months, better part of a year (or maybe more), hacking Emerald. Don't get me wrong, it always, always ended up going pear-shaped one way or another. Initially it was the Sound Corruption deal, but even after learning how to avoid that, when I tried compiling scripts, they'd start overwriting map data despite me searching for a "free" offset. I sometimes go back and edit some maps and stuff for fun but if I edit 'too much' it'll usually bite me in the ass, so Fire Red for now :D
Well, yes, but I don't like my computer, and I haven't got a laptop. I'll be getting one for college by September, though, so that'll be great :)
...told you not too look out the window... :P
Entering anything, as in am I making any ROM-Hacking competitions for it, or am I myself taking part in a competition to dance for an Emblem? :D If the former, I hadn't thought about it. Meaning I'm a bit too lazy right now. If the latter, I hadn't thought about that either, but it'd probably be pretty fun. I'd like to enter a mapping competition or something if there is one. Or something to do with Music, preferably :D
HAOW AOUT YHOU, DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY?
July 14th, 2011 4:43 AMDrFuji
lol pwnt How long did you stick with Emerald until it was clear that it hated you?
Yeah, getting a new phone it a good idea - Either you do that or you use a COMPUTER. Your current phone is as reliable as the internet on top of Harry's hill XD
I'll get a heart attack? I doubt that bro. I'm eighteen, go the gym, eat healthy have a goodHHNNNNNGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH...
I was wondering, are you entering anything in the Get Together or are you just sitting back and watching the puppets members dance for Emblems?
July 14th, 2011 4:21 AMgiradialkia
Yeah, it varies from person to person what ROM suits them best. I'd love to just use Emerald, but I just kept running into random glitches. Obviously that's from something I did but essentially all I ever did was edit maps in Emerald, so to have it screw up at that early stage was just frustrating :/
Yeah, I tend to have problems with basically posting in general when I use my phone. I should probably get a new phone :D
That's fine, call away. Lol, it's funny, you look really startled.
Just don't look out the window, I don't want to give you a heart attack.
yuss, I's a trolin champiun. :D
July 14th, 2011 4:05 AMDrFuji
AWESUM. Sure, I'll get one off you if I ever want to do a hack on them, but right now that isn't very likely. I'm a million times more familiar with FR and apart from contests and music (stupid sappy) there isn't much that I want from R/S/E that I can't do in FR What are you going to do if I make it sexual? Ban me? Hahahaha... Oh wait...
wow, I knew that you sometimes have problems with VMs, but four times? Dayum son. Also no DJ-ing :D
Just a second, I need to call the cops because you stalk good.
i new it! ur a troling maester. i waz woried 4 a secnd thar ;D
July 14th, 2011 3:48 AMgiradialkia
Of course you'll be seeing some :) I'm going to put them in my bases, so I'll always have them for a hack. (I have like various ROM bases to save time for if I'll ever do hacks of Ruby and Emerald. Essentially I've just replaces all the graphics with that of Fire Red, so Pokemon Sprites, Overworld Sprites, tiles, some animations, etc.) If you ever decide to hack Emerald or Ruby lemme know and I'll hook you up :D
(I think I said that before and you tried making it sexual. So.. Don't try making it sexual this time, k? :P)
Hell, i did that just now. I tried sending this VM four times from my phone and it just... wouldn't. :( So I put a nice dent in the wall.
I didn't really, I just kinda hurt my hand.. *I'll never play piano again* :D
You're welcome, sleepy head. If you can't sleep just go for a walk. Slip on your hat-shoes and go meet Mr Cookaburra- watch out for the man-eating Hamburgers, though. (Damn, I stalk good.)
I NO LIE MAN, ITZ COMIN BAKC ADN ITZ GON BE BETR THEN EVUR. I'S GON REVOLUSHUNIZE HAKCING.
Ah, just something I threw together yesterday before I went to bed. It was surprisingly easy, I just copied A-Maps code and it works. Simple. :)
ACTUALLY, there's one more thing I could use an explanation for, but I'll PM you because I don't want to show just how much a noob I am ;) *PMs*
lol pms, duuuuuuuuuuuuurty :P
Yeah, never mind :)
July 14th, 2011 2:58 AMDrFuji
No problem, brah - I just hope to see shiny new backgrounds in your hack, k? That feeling sucks doesn't it? I actually swore like sailor and punched my table when I realised that the first PM couldn't be salvaged ;_; Have you ever done something like that?
Thanks for making me imagine all the horrible and grusome pain somebody would be in if that were to happen, now I won't be able to fall asleep. I hope you're happy :<
Wait... You're saying it's not coming back? Y U BEAN LYIN 2 ME?! ;o;
Sweet stuff dude. How long did you work on the map editor? I'm asking because I heard that even beginning tool-makers can make a pretty comprehensive one in a few hours :)
July 14th, 2011 2:36 AMgiradialkia
Thanks a million for that PM brah, that's EXACTLY what I needed. The only tutorial I know of didn't actually show how to make it animate, so.. It sucked, in that regard. Sorry you had to type it out twice, I really, really hate when that happens :( but again, thanks a million dude :)
lol, mental note- 'chicks dig disfigured dudes'. I'm off to take a bath in acid, then :) (AH THAT'S HORRIBLE, IMAGINE THAT :( )
Hehe, I keep thinking some poor soul who doesn't get sarcasm online will have stalked our conversation and think it actually is coming back.
Well anyway, I plan to reopen it in September, on the day of my birthday, and I'll post the final releases of my GBC hack, my GBA hack, and my White hack, for which I had to make my own map and script editor. I'll give you them if you can keep it a secret :)
