    And what makes Infinity even more interesting is that it's a hack of emerald.
    Don't see those too often anymore.
    It's always FireRed now.
    No more emerald.

    Thanks, I appreciate that
    Hm, I hadn't even thought about awards, lol. I'm not even sure how that works...
    Glacidea, like the Gracidea flower? I love the Snow-lax idea, can't wait to see it :D
    Maybe I'll try messing around with Emerald sometime, though I've already decided on Firered for my next hack, out of necessity. Of course, I'm planning a bit far ahead
    As for Hidden Ties flashing, I was thinking that there would still be a black silhouette while the letters weren't flashing. I may have the wrong understanding, but I believe that the way flashing works is it displays two different pictures in succession, right? So would it be possible to overlay the embedded letters with black silhouette, hiding them, and the embedded silhouettes with the flashing letters? Not sure if I really explained that well...
    Yeah, I'll definitely look into editing Constrict, once I've finished off the scripting.
    Sorry for the truncated post, it's really late here, and I need to get to bed.

    I did?
    Oh wait, yeah, I think you're right... I actually think I went ahead and released the name already *facepalm*
    Ah well, I'll go check. It's no biggie anyway.
    As for the quote, don't mention it. I like Anselection well enough (did some scripting for him on his hack), but I know that I personally hate it when people I disagree with assume I'm on their side. And you are a good hacker, so you deserved the compliment.
    Yeah, I'm not too big on graphic gore, but I see what you mean. It wouldn't really work though, because if you noticed in the hack, there was no trace of a body. I may make that significant later on, and until I know if and how I'll do so, I'll just leave out blood just in case I regret it later.
    I wasn't sure if the fade in/out would be possible, I've never really attempted intro screen editing (though I think I might have a shot at tile editing... more on that later). In that case, it would probably be best to just have solid letters, with no flashing or fading.
    You know, maybe I'll look at Emerald for my next hack, seems like it's got a lot of room for modification. That's cool that you'll have secondary trees though, I just have a thing for eye candy
    I just looked at a tile editing tutorial, and it looks way easier than I'd thought, so I might try inventing and inserting a few tiles to a guinea pig rom, and maybe change some for HT later. I've also hijacked and edited the tiles from Erika's gym, so now I've got some cool little bush-trees and an extra flower tile.
    Oh wait, I just had a random but potentially awesome thought. For the intro screen, what if every other letter flashed at once, so it would look like H D E T E, then I D N I S. Would that look excessively wierd?
    I'm planning on giving Tentakill Crunch, just because he's actually got a mouth. I'm also giving serious consideration to upgrading Constrict (the most pointless move in the game... even fails to Splash, because at least Splash is funny...). As for stats, I'm thinking probably an upgraded version of Tentacruel (duh), so a special wall primarily, with good speed and upgraded Sp.Atk.
    ...you're right, they're getting longer with each post...

    Our VMs are getting freakishly long. I'm typing this in Notepad so that I can read your post and make sure I'm responding to everything O.O
    Yeah, Tentakill would be great, if Pokeyomama doesn't mind. I've already got some ideas for the stats and moveset additions (though if you or PYM has any preferences in that regard, let me know).
    0.o I completely forgot there was a trial period, and my hex editor just blew up. So... I'll try to find a new one, I guess...
    Regarding the title screen, no need for blood (this is, after all, a Pokemon game, lol), but I think just the braille on a rock wall would actually look pretty cool, with the game title overhead. Actually, instead of the traditional style for the actual title, would it be possible to have shadowed letters, with the "Hidden Ties" script fading in and out from black to light blue (with the normal Pokemon logo overhead)? Or am I making things needlessly complicated?
    Yeah, I really love what you did with the trees in that tileset, they look fantastic. Just a suggestion, but I really enjoy playing hacks that have more than one type of tree in the tileset. Just a thought, but it's cool to have two different styles of tree just to add eye candy, in addition to the skinny trees.
    Ideas are free, lol, especially since you really inspired that one (if by accident), and that would be really cool.
    Ah, so this is an Emerald hack, I suppose that makes sense, if you wanted to use Deoxys Spd. I can do some scripting for you if you need it (though I don't know... testing my hack may have turned you off to my scripting, lol). And by now you've probably already seen my response to your PM.
    Btw, I'm editing my earlier VM to take out that Fakemon name, I'm going to see if anyone will actually decipher the braille hint in-game.

    I was pretty much thinking of just inserting him for the heck of it, and I think you're right; there's just no point... though I'd love to insert Tentakill if you think that's feasible (lol, out of the blue, but I really love the concept).
    I'm plodding along with the beta, just got done with some mapping today. I still need to insert a ton of scripts, and I haven't yet decided where I want to end this release... Once it's ready, I'll send you the patch.
    Regarding hex editors, Hex Workshop is supposed to be pretty good (I'm not too experience with hex editing, but I've messed around with it somewhat). If you can tell me exactly what, where, and how to edit, I can go in and try myself. I'd learn something too
    An intro screen would be fantastic. I'd like to have the fakemon's name written across the background in Braille (if you need to know what that'll look like, it's actually in the next patch), but other than that I'm stumped. You have more experience than me in this sort of thing, what do you think?
    Oh, and I'm intrigued by that Infinity screenshot in your sig (nice tiles, btw). It looks like the waterfall is hitting the pond a tile beyond the rock wall, I don't suppose there's something back there? If there's anything I can do to help you with your project, just let me know; I owe you one

    Hey, thanks for the vm, the map looks awesome! I posted a comment in your album, there are one or two changes that I made recently, because I'm a jerk
    Seriously though, fantastic job! I may just take another shot at inserting it once it's done, see if I can get it right this time.
    Btw, you know Zorua and Zoruark, the two 5gen Pokemon they've released? I'm thinking about inserting those to HT (translation, I'm considering begging you to insert them for me). D'you think that would be a good idea, or a bit premature?

    don't worry. I know how nooby it was, since I, too, was a newbie back then and didn't know any better... xD
    and don't worry. I'm not insulted in any way.
    mugshots? remind me about that later on, k? I tend to forget. :\

    Pretty much. But in HG/SS, you fight a single grunt some time after the Elite Four. In Platinum, you fight 2 admins some time after the Elite Four. So in ShadowAmethyst, you'll fight a single grunt somewhere, and in my planned minor Emerald hack, you'll fight the Admins (NOT THE LEADERS) of Team Aqua & Magma some time after the Elite Four.

    Well, Sevii Islands will be in the game. They'll generally look the same as FR/LG, but a lot less "square" looking, and more "Hoenn" looking. The wild Pokemon will be the same, the trainers will be mostly the same. Also, you won't be able to access any of them until after the Elite Four, and you won't be dealing with Team Rocket. But I'll probably include some side-quests to keep us occupied.

    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.

    Lol @ ear ringing. I'm glad it toned down! The funny thing is, my ears ring all the time. not horribly so, but at a low grade "hum". When I get out of loud concerts I am totally used to it lol.

    Yep, yep! I will get a job one way or the other! I'm thinking about doing some volunteer work 2:p Always helps, and makes ya feel good:D

    Man, you're really a "hurling" nut huh? Lol thats awesome. Don't way overdo it on the beer young padawan! Your brain is still developing lol! Matter of fact... I think mine is 2 *Puts pint down*. How did the social events turn out?

    What the? Isn't it NEVER supposed to snow in Ireland? Freaking enviroment. No updates with the band. I would kinda like to play with other people to be completely honest. I hate the style of music we play lol. So that's a pretty unproductive attitude:/ Any new mixes???

    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.

So, if you like electronic dancey music, check this link out:

I've had it as my usertitle for quite a while now, but.. well, I could do with using my blog a bit more often, haha.

That's my soundcloud. I've been playing music (piano) since I was about... five? Five. And for about four years now, I've been producing music electronically. I can play a bit of guitar/ukulele too, but that's...

I'm actually quite suckish at using my blog, but... I really don't care. I rarely have anything interesting to post but this is something I HAVE to write down somewhere, because it's just too weird.

So in the late 80s, my parents moved from Ireland to Canada. My siblings and I were born there, and we lived there til I finished Senior Kindergarten at age 5. We then moved back to Ireland, where we lived in the sorta suburbs. I went to school there for about two and a half years before...

Here I am with a slightly more controversial blog post. Definitely in comparison to my previous ones anyway, which have all pretty much been little notes about my life.

Anyway, with the death of Apple dude Steve Jobs a few weeks ago, and now with the recent passing of world-reknowned (have no idea if that's the correct way to say it) singer Whitney Housten at the age of 48, it's got me thinking; when it comes to celebrity deaths, there's something that really, really annoys me.

So, it's been a little while since I last posted in this little blog, and... well, I still don't really have that much interesting things to say, but oh well :P

So if it hasn't become clear by this stage, I'm a Scrubs fanatic. (How one could be anything but is totally beyond me). Most people who know me will also know that I'm quite into music in general. And so, when you cross these two fantastic things, you get...

So yeah, yesterday I met up with my buddy DrFuji, who came to Ireland all the way from Upside-downia :) We had a pretty awesome day, which consisted of much walking around, then sitting down, then walking around some more. It was odd to talk about the things we usually talk about, but in person :P

So a fair bit happened during the day. We got some food and consumed...
