Hm, we try to weed out most of the threads asking questions better suited for the stickies (you have no idea how many of those we get on a daily basis). Feel free to report one if I stupidly approve one. But yeah, a lot of these threads are kinda pointless. That, and they're starting to look awfully similar to the threads in the Scrapbox of old, which is not something I want to deal with. The problem is that there's really no clear definition of what type of threads should go there. giradialkia and myself will have to discuss this.
Hey man. I'm good thank you, busy time next week as I'm preparing to move out of my family home. Regarding Violet, I was getting to grips with Assembly but put it aside for a bit as disassembling by hand can get a bit monotonous, and I got a bit lost to be honest while trying to workout how triggers work, so I took a break to have a little fun working on a newish basic hack(just a new land using existing scripts) that's based on an unreleased precursor to the current Violet demo.
You know, I think it can be pretty boring spending the time pressing buttons on A-Map..
You obviously have no clue how Advance Map works. First of all, you actually don't just press buttons, you actually have to use your imagination and transfer it onto advance map. "Will this look good their, what if I move this over here, oh, that doesn't look too good, I'll change it!" Mapping is creativity, mapping is art, and mapping with a hex editor takes hours, especially on 3rd gen. I am getting so pissed off with adults who come on to a forum based off a kids game just to say "I am awesome, and you're doing everything wrong!", well newsflash, it's a 3+ game, nobody cares except the most over-obsessed fans. So before acting like you know everything, make sure you actually do. Kthxbai.
It's funny: I actually had someone tell me that ASM stood for that exact same thing ("Advanced Scripting Method") in an MSN conversation almost two years ago, before I really had any idea what it meant.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go search that thread to figure out where he (Equin) got that idea from and edit any instances of "Advanced Scripting Method" I find.
