I spent a solid 5 minutes pondering what to post here. This 5 minutes could have been used to do my assignment. What have I become

Anyways, it's supposed to be 50 degrees fahrenheit today and this weekend. Noice.

The Thread of Topiclessness was growing massive and needed maintenance for the sake of the forums, so I decided to do something about that.

Aside from that, I thought it'd be warm if I popped back in here.

Eh, activity will pop up every now and then. It's not super active, but there are occasional conversations.

There are some conversations that can quickly reach up to 300+ messages long in a short time period. Unfortunatly, these are usually flame wars.

If the amount of attention Chickasaurus' and Shenanagans' videos are getting is any indication, there's still tons of interest in both Gen I glitches and further research into them, possibly more than there has been in years. The speedrunning community in general seems to have revitalized interest in glitches from all generations.
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: ISSOtm on January 21, 2018, 05:40:32 pm
There is still interest in Gen I, but attention has shifted more towards Gen II, both because we're slowly exhausting Gen I's pool of glitches, and because of Gen II being released on VC.

Also, yeah, you should definitely learn GBz80. I suggest taking a look at awesome-gbdev.

Hi Sherkel! :) Long time no speak.

If the amount of attention Chickasaurus' and Shenanagans' videos are getting is any indication, there's still tons of interest in both Gen I glitches and further research into them, possibly more than there has been in years. The speedrunning community in general seems to have revitalized interest in glitches from all generations.

This makes me happy, but don't forget TheZZAZZGlitch. His videos are a lot more popular than mine nowadays.

Then we also have Crystal_ (who goes really deep into his explanations) and Metarkrai for Generation III videos.

Yeah definitely re:speedrunning, I really enjoyed the techniques that were put together for 151 speedruns (mainly by luckytyphlosion).
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Sherkel on January 22, 2018, 11:35:18 am
Hello to you too! It sure has been a while. It's good to know there'll be even more to watch when I feel like checking out glitch videos. Shen's stuff on 151 is what introduced me to speedrunning as a whole, and just talking about it now I already want to practice Red some more when I get back to my place in a few days. Did you ever give it a shot?
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Princess Torchic Owl Lover ☽ ❤ on January 22, 2018, 11:46:21 am
Yes, it has :).

Cool, hope you enjoy them!

I've never tried running it, no but I've watched a few of Shenanagens speedruns.

I remember thinking it was amazing how he would navigate the Glitch Cities so smoothly, setting up Cooltrainers, or how he would execute later glitches such as LGFly and oobLG.

The closest I've done to a speedrun was a Japanese Crystal TAS (but not optimised) and a 5かい catch 'em all run for Red/Green (which is really obsolete now). Both are on my channel if you haven't watched them.

What have you been up to? You been playing any of the more recent Pokémon games like Sun/Moon, Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon?

Trust me, it is garbage.
For starters, if you play for a while (time depends on the game), game just freezes (good luck if it happens mid-save), if you saved in-game while inside the savestate, and then nuked that savestate, saves in the main game may RANDOMLY become way older than they should (happened with my first Dragon Warrior Monsters playthrough - finished game with all the monsters became a mid-game save with barely half of the bectiary filled ><).
Games that are pirated or just heavily glitch-prone can get random errors that throw you out of the game (pirated Pokemon Green has these, and they made elite4 unbeatable, and "Pokemon Diamond" Telefang bootleg, - with stabilising patch, may I add, - literally crashed if you stepped onto some map tiles).
Graphic errors appear even in "improved graphics" mode (DWM gets all the moving map sprites cut in half or become invisible on certain moments).
Some games won't let you move properly if you put in frameskip (in Dragon Warrior 3, I couldn't make just one step, it "slid" and made 2 instead, which made some thing real hard).
Sound support is so bad that I'd rather not have it there at all (the only thing it is useful for is making games slow enough to easily win casino minigames).
And it seems like Debug Yellow's debugging tool won't work properly, either (I can't write a string of zeroes into memory no matter how I try), tho it may be just me being dumb.

I'm not sure alchemy is a real qualification you can obtain.

Regarding MeBoy, you might want to check this out:
https://www.reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/2nmslr/android_gbgbc_emulator_accuracy_testing_results/

The thing is with GBC.boy is that it's a paid app, as is GambatteDroid which is also based on Gambatte.

Which is pretty scummy IMO because they didn't develop Gambatte and they're profiting off it. Are they even complying with the GPLv2 here?
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: ISSOtm on January 24, 2018, 08:53:50 am
Tests should also be conducted on Pizza Boy, imo. It's actively developed, runs a custom engine, is free, and runs Aevilia fine (since it fixed something with rVBK, at least :p).
I'd be interested in seeing how this emulator fares.

Oh, cool, another story ! I liked Meganium Man quite a lot.

Meganium Man! is still going. I've got, like, 30 episode ideas including a finale. Whether or not I get that far is a different story.

I dunno. It seems like whenever I try to write something my brain just goes, "Nobody gives a s**t" and I end up closing the document. Especially if it's not fanfiction.
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Mefista on February 15, 2018, 11:10:40 am
Meboy-F introduced the most infuriating glitch so far: it made it so occasionally, when it or regular Meboy are supposed to run Dragon Warior Monsters 2 roms (any version), they refuse to open (with no error message), and if you reload the emulator and try again, it either freezes the whole phone or makes it DO AN EMERGENCY SHUTDOWN.
Like, I know my phone is old, but I also know it is not supposed to do that (seeing as it runs heavy-ass programs made for other brands of j2me phones just fine, tho starting them takes like 15 minutes - out of those, I only have WMLEditor right now tho).

My advice: Choose an emulator that isn't a reskinned version of an inaccurate open-source emulator that died a long time ago.
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Mefista on February 17, 2018, 04:20:16 pm
Parzival, my rom is randomised, I guess there's something in it that throws the emulator off the mark - the question is, why did it only start happening after I added Meboy-F into the mix, and why does it affect EVERY DWM2 rom now? Also, how many gameboy emulators there are that would work on a Sony Ericsson z710i?

Besides, my 20-years-old bed broke irrepairably last week, I kinda have other priorities, because sleping on lined-up poufs is no fun.
Also, you are like 9th foreigner who suggests that (and I am pretty sure that you are second or even third on this forum alone) or something along the same lines.

I feel your pain there, I've just received $8, which is a HUGE AMOUNT for me. It took me YEARS to save up a few bucks. I'm not even dependent on myself for money, either, so that shouldn't happen in the first place (as I could normally just borrow money from parents, like any other teenager).

I am dependent on my mom stil cause she takes my disability payment into family funds, and spends as she feels like. Granted, I get fed and clothed, but rarely have any choice in things (and she tries to boot me out at times, even tho I co-own the flat - it was a goverment handout).
She never gave me spending money when I was a teen, either ><' So I only have rare states when her mood shifts towards "kind of normal person" to get stuff (and even then, she decides for me most of the times).

I tried out a doujin of the Touhou series (itself a doujin series) yesterday called Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle (the Nintendo Switch version) as suddenly thought why not explore this series as I hadn't played a Touhou game before.

Some people regard it as a bad Touhou game, but I enjoyed the game regardless (although I agree the battle system seems a little repetitive at times), and the "yukkuri shiteitte ne" meme reference was fun.

It inspired me to want to try out Touhou Mountain of Faith from the main series next. (Chose to get that one as it works with no issues on Windows 10)

I know some people on these forums like Touhou too, what are your favourites?

have there been any guesses regarding the running speed of the europasaurus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europasaurus)? Google brings up dick.

Still wondering this. The reason I ask is because my newest* story idea involves the protagonist being partnered with a europasaurus because it seemed like an ideal dinosaur steed and because theropods - which would probably make more sense - are overrated trash.

Even though brachiosaurus could only move at 10mp/h (or 16km/h), europasaurus is a dwarf species, being 20ft long at most and went shoulder-to-shoulder with an adult male (see this (http://www.prehistoric-wildlife.com/images/species/e/europasaurus-size.jpg) for a basic idea) and weighed as much as a cow. As such, it might've been faster than its colossal relatives. Even then, 16km/h is pretty good for  brachiosaurus when you take the length of its strides into account.

On a completely unrelated note, this laptop keyboard is s**t.

*I actually wrote two full stories but neither one of them were any good and I've tweaked the concept quite a bit. It was originally called Dinocop, about a cop who had a pet europasaurus, but then I decided to make him a vigilante instead. The europasaurus was also the only dinosaur in both stories but I've since decided to add more. So the whole thing is basically getting a reboot.

I think I found either a glitch or a very odd intetional thing in Xi Kong Shin Shou (on that dumbass mobile emulator, so can't provide a save): if your monster holds that sphere that regenerates a part of health if it's low, and hurts itself from being confused, the sphere regenerates opponent's health instead, and your monster stays alive with 0 health (that remains that way even post-battle without becoming an obligatory 1hp, tho you can give the monster a potion and it'd be fine).
It happened to my Bladeberus TWICE, with that one jiagshi monster in the lighthouse.

uggghhhhhhhhhh gbz80asm sucksss

can anybody recommend some half-decent tutorials for some aspects like jumps, conditions, and flags? asmschool kind of didn't do it for me tbh, it was all just 'lol add $8f adds $8f to a' and apparently according to a specific member's suggestions i needed to 'read it all' to get it.

rgbds is a literal nightmare. i have no idea what i'm doing and quite frankly a one-file project seems to be the best course of action considering how there's jack s**t in terms of good error messages and help files. i don't know what bin, constants, objects, or any of this s**t is i just want a damn gb asm compiler.

i might just scrap my projects entirely seeing as i can't even write a gosh damn ram clearer since whoever made the fucking gameboy decided that ram should be filled to the brim with random fucking values for NO reason. f**k me. jesus christ.

RGBDS is a cool compiler, although it does have some weird quirks (constant assignments must start on 1st column, everything else must not) that are confusing. It also improved its error messages, now it gives line numbers for most things.

It's (semi-)randomly filled at startup not by design or choice, but because that's how RAM chips work, so you have to suck it up and work with it. I recommend init'ing the bare minimum of things and enabling BGB's "Break on uninitialized RAM reads" so you know when you forgot to init a var.

So after LanceAndMissingNo. sent me a message about entering the Pokémon League with 5 Badges in Yellow, I decided to replicate that now old Red/Blue 0 Badges route from MrWint where you use Brock Through Walls to get to the Pokémon League early, abusing a quirk in how map connections work to place me near the top of the Pokémon League rather than below the badge checks and as a challenge without any save states.

I originally thought using Level 100 Nidoking from Viridian Forest death warp would be straight forward (though death warps can be a pain without luck manipulation which I've never tried and can't on VBA which, while it has inaccurate RNG, I prefer to use it because of its in-built recorder), but unfortunately the Level 1 Nidoking doesn't have coverage for Bruno's Rock-types and Agatha's Ghost-types (in fact the only way it can hit it with no TMs is with Poison Sting). -_- The TAS in that respect abuses luck manipulation a lot so Nidoking's Thrashes are critical hits and the foe doesn't hit the user whenever possible.

Before I tried this I did it with save states to abuse the linkless version of Generation I cloning (which has a high chance of corrupting the save file hence the save states) with Level 100 Nidoking and its original moves. Even with 6 Level 100 Nidoking's I still failed (and it's counter intuitive because you'd think with that many Level 100s you'd sure win). >_<;

So as a solution I decided to do Brock Through Walls twice. First time I'd walk to Silph Co. 10F and pick up TM26 Earthquake to teach Nidoking, and then I'd abuse Generation I Escape Rope mechanics to go back to Pewter City after last healing there (losing to warp is tricky unfortunately as a Rocket blocks the door (preventing PC access to deposit Nidoking) and you may spend a long time getting Nidoking to faint). Second time I'd do the Pewter house Brock Through Walls exploit to get to the Pokémon League and proceed to attempt the Elite Four.

It was still quite challenging for me with one Level 100 Nidoking so I'm glad I saved more often than not. When Nidoking gets to Lance he may have low HP hence you always have a chance of fainting to Gyarados' Hydro Pump (and I don't know the possible amount of damage it can do to you in general). But another (I feel) less obvious threat is Lance's Aerodactyl. It resists all Nidoking's starting moves as well as Earthquake, and its Hyper Beam can do a lot of damage to Nidoking. More frustratingly though it can troll you with Supersonic, so if you lose HP to confusion Aerodactyl could possibly throw another Hyper Beam at you (or possibly a flinch from Bite, I'm unsure how flinch works).

While with more careful planning I may have been able to buy a Revive, I had no money for items. Catching an Abra and doing another Brock Through Walls might have also allowed me to get TM48 Rock Slide from Celadon Department Store drinks girl, but I chose not to do this as I thought getting Earthquake would be sufficient.

A good strategy against Lance while time consuming is to abuse the Lance Trainer class AI to restore Nidoking's HP to its maximum. Long story short his three (not sure?? Even though I did this and have played the game many times I can't remember ;w;) Dragonair will always default to a super-effective Agility against Poison-types such as Nidoking and Bulbasaur even though it doesn't deal any damage and even if it has a maximum Speed stage. For this point luck is in our favour because Bulbasaur learns Leech Seed, so you can keep switching Nidoking in and out to restore its HP. Dragonair will also faint before Nidoking gets full HP but we're also lucky that Lance has more than one Dragonair and he can use a Hyper Potion so that more Leech Seed hits occur.

Then I saved before Blue. I don't know what moves his Gyarados knows (Trainer Pokémon normally have the same moves in this game other than what are called 'lone attacks' from special Trainers like Gym Leaders), but possibly his Gyarados could again be a threat to Nidoking due to its Water-type weakness.

I finally won, but the process from death-warp and Bulbasaur setup (including credits roll) took me 1 hour and 38 minutes. Makes me think speedrunners are amazing and they are a lot more patient than I am. Another thing is that I think you can get Level 100 Gengar if you manage to defeat Route 22 Rival Blue's first Pokémon and lose to his second Pokémon to load the 14 Special stat in memory for Gengar at Level 1, but I didn't confirm this or research its moves.

Tldr though, always be prepared for glitches taking longer or being more difficult than you expect. :)

The Agility thing is why you use most of your X items on Nidoking while up against his Dragonair and only use the single necessary X Special to one-shot the Gyarados before it.

This thread is still the most viewed on GCLF (https://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php?topic=4567.0). I don't know why, I don't know if anyone knows why, and I don't even know if there IS a why. (The thread about 8F, deservingly, is #2.)

I do really want to learn RBA when I next get the chance to do this. Glitchless feels dead to me simply due to a general lack of patience and NSC is monotonous no matter who you ask, but RBA seems like a good middle ground. On the other hand, there are other (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elvdSdiZ-uQ) games (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKC2saJ5eYI) I'd much rather learn first.

...Huh. There's a GBC game called "Gift" that also has a German release called "Gifty" (with English text, so how about that). I guess that'd be why. Can't have a game called "Poison", that's a swear word.

For those wondering it's like Zelda but not quite as good.

...Apparently it was also a different big 3D game on PC/PS2 as well? So I guess this isn't just some obscure GBC game, it's the obligatory "hey let's make a handheld version of this except not change the title because that would make sense" game.

Looking forward to Nintendo Switch online. Been obsessed with arcade style games recently like in particular Nintendo Archives: Sky Skipper and it'll be fun to challenge others with the bonus NES games.

The Somnium Files and Nelke are my only two reasons to get a Switch at present. With both a 3DS and Vita I can either play or emulate any other game I might care about without the awkwardness of a keyboard or big screen.

Thank you both!

And yeah, not too thrilled about Switch online. I'm hoping the service is better than what Nintendo has previously pushed out since it's now a service you have to pay for, but I'm skeptical. Thankfully you can bring down the cost per month by opting for a family plan. Might be something to consider for everyone here if you all want to be on the same plan.

Please note that a family plan has a wider scope than just family. A group of friends of mine have their own plan, now :D
And, it's worth it starting from 2 ~ 3 people in the plan, too.

Honestly the Switch just keeps giving me more and more reasons to not care about it.

There's just Smash Oddysey, and Super Mario Ultimate, and it's like... I dunno. It's not even like the Switch is that innovative as a console. Those games might as well have been on the Wii U, really.

Good fucking riddance.

Here's (https://archive.fo/CJWna) an archived article from The Verge about it.

Quote
Google is going to shut down the consumer version of Google+ over the next 10 months, the company writes in a blog post today. The decision follows the revelation of a previously undisclosed security flaw that exposed users’ profile data that was remedied in March 2018.

Google says Google+ currently has “low usage and engagement” and that 90 percent of Google+ user sessions last less than five seconds. Still, the company plans to keep the service alive for enterprise customers who use it to facilitate conversation among co-workers. New features will be rolled out for that use case, the company says. Google is focusing on a “secure corporate social network,” which is odd considering this announcement comes alongside news that the company left profile details unprotected.

IT’LL TAKE 10 MONTHS TO FULLY SHUT DOWN THE SERVICE

In addition to sunsetting Google+, the company announced new privacy adjustments for other Google service. API changes will limit developers’ access to data on Android devices and Gmail. Developers will no longer receive call log and SMS permissions on Android devices and contact interaction data won’t be available through the Android Contacts API. That same also API provided basic interaction data, like who you last messaged, and that permission is also being revoked.
As for the Gmail changes, the company is updating its User Data Policy for the consumer version of the email service. This will limit apps and the scope of their access to user data. Ben Smith, Google fellow and VP of engineering, writes: “Only apps directly enhancing email functionality — such as email clients, email backup services and productivity services (e.g., CRM and mail merge services) — will be authorized to access this data.”

Any developer who has this access will be have to undergo security assessments and agree to new rules about data handling, like not transferring or selling user data for targeting ads, market research, email campaign tracking, or other unrelated purposes.

Google previously tried to quell privacy concerns earlier this year after The Wall Street Journal detailed how common it is for third-party app developers to be able to read and analyze users’ Gmail messages. At the time, Suzanne Frey, the director of the company’s security, trust, & privacy division of Google Cloud, emphasized that users should review what apps have access to their accounts and revoke it if necessary. Last year, Google announced that it would stop its long-standing practice of scanning the contents of individual Gmail users for advertising purposes. Of course, the company still has plenty of data it can target advertisements against, like Search history, YouTube views, and other Chrome actions.

These most recent changes are being attributed to an internal Google effort called Project Strobe, which involved a review of “third-party developer access to Google account and Android device data and of our philosophy around apps’ data access,” according to Google.

I don't think I'll ever be able to say I truly like it, either due to a general distaste for the composition (which is odd, considering it's RSE's team with Aoki swapped out for Sato) and sound design (needlessly "soft" in comparison to what came before and after it) or sheer contempt for the time in my life where I got the most exposure to it. Either way, Route 209 (Night), Valor Lakefront (both versions), Team Galactic HQ, and the Elite Four battle theme all qualify as keepable tunes to me.

About Halloween, I didn't end up doing that this year...I'm getting to the age where it's harder to cover certain things up and didn't have the necessary equipment when the time came. I still plan to, of course.

Same, I like a lot of Generation IV music too personally, not all of them but a few like Route 206, Route 209, Route 216, Lake (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PbnT0x0e5I) (not Valor Lakefront though), Eterna Forest, Jubilife City.

I think with me sometimes it depends on my mood. Not sure how to express it though.

It's snowing for the first time this year in my state! Ever since moving further south I was worried I wouldn't get to see as much snow, so this is quite the pleasant surprise. I also have to give a (very, very basic) presentation entirely in German today, and to be on the safe side and not arrive late I drove in an hour early...to find the place is opening late today due to the snow, cutting heavily into class time. I just want to get it over with! Looking out at the snow and reading about nds-constrain't is passing the time well, though, as is writing this post. On that note, if anyone knows a program along the lines of IR-GTS that can set up a DNS server that meets its requirements, I'd be pleased to know.

...And then they closed the place for the day. Oh well. It next meets on Tuesday, and there's no way I'd still be nervous by that point.

Just play it while you still don't know everything about it. Just... yeah, do it! It's worth it.
You got the main mechanic of the game spoiled to you, but that's not *that* bad. You don't seem to have been spoiled important plot elements, so there's still a lot to be found.

So far as we can tell we were being mobbed by bots (a spam botnet or a badly behaved web crawler botnet) and that may have contributed to the occasional slowdowns and intermittent downtime. I have banned the offending IPs at the front-end server layer so their requests don't even hit the PHP layer. This should alleviate slowness issues.

It's a Caesar cipher with rotation 16, it's talking about endings and a boss. Funny enough, without deciphering, I deduced exactly what were the words! (Three letter word had to be "and" :P)


fqsyvyji is easy enough, although maybe a tad harder than a normal ending; you can't do it on your first playthough (one of the required events will never occur on your first playthrough), but if you didn't kill anyone, you can resume off of your normal ending's save file, the even will trigger since you've finished the game once.

wudesytu is just tedious and way too easy (which, in the grand scheme of things, makes it actually amazingly designed), except for two difficulty spikes you probably already know the name of ;D

Glad that you like the game that much! Before you begin on Deltarune, though, make sure you get informed about the lore (particularly the "unused" stuff, ESPECIALLY a certain character named "Wqijuh". Because there's a lot in Deltarune that references this guy as well, although never explicitly.
I mean, you don't have to, but you'll be missing on a bunch of stuff, really.


And, if you want something UNDERTALE-related, not canon, but still pretty interesting, once you got informed about "Wqijuh", look for LynxGriffin's "Dogs of Future Past" fan comic. It's pure fan stuff, but it makes great use of everything related to that character without being boring. And it's a compelling story, no less.
Make sure you've finished the game first, otherwise major spoilers :P
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Sherkel on December 02, 2018, 12:15:42 pm
I didn't know rot-13 was involved in the game; I was just referring back to what I did in my previous post to avoid spoilers.

Thanks for all the info. fqsyvyij is tough so far, probably just because I still need to get more used to the battle system (I'm dreading the last cujqjjed fight...). I had no idea wudesytu was considered easy! I might be one of the few to end up disagreeing at this rate. :P It really is an amazing game, though, giving me more than enough reason to push through the difficult parts. The storytelling, the hilarity, the style emphasizing what makes people still prefer 16-bit, the sheer weirdness on top of it all (well, I suppose I should say underneath :P )...I didn't think I'd find a game that would make this kind of impression on me after Zero Escape.

I'll keep all those reminders in mind before delving into Deltarune. I will probably check out the OST pretty soon, though.
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: ISSOtm on December 02, 2018, 03:00:14 pm
wudesytu overall isn't easy at all, it's just that it's easy most of the time, but these two difficulty spikes are... WHEW
It's also designed so you can't do it accidentally (just the Ruins requirement requires hours unless you do the speedrun strat, which is to press U+D near a wall to wall hump, and step into a loading zone as soon as possible after exiting the fight). It's also designed under the assumption that you do it last.

Overall I was saying that wudesytu is not very rewarding, which makes it awesomely designed. If you haven't understood why yet, you soon will. :3

Honestly, the game is intended for you to do fqsyvyij -- it's balanced for that, and often if you die during a boss fight, it'll speed up your next attempts, so it's much less frustrating. (On the other hand, wudesytu's marathon bosses WON'T be cut down, should you die. Again, this is part of its design and it's frckin awesome.)


As far as I'm aware, there's not rot-13 anywhere in the game, I think it was just Parzi being confused about the cipher you used.

Haha, I tried that once, but I quickly got bored and my head started hurting.

I came in GBDev shortly after that case, but I heard mentions of npz's antics... he's quite the catch, it seems! :P


Anyways,


Wondering if anyone with experience in the WinApi can help me out here.

My code goes as follows:
Code: [Select]
.386 ; Assemble for Intel 8036

.model flat,stdcall ; memory model is flat, callee cleans up stack


include \masm32\include\kernel32.inc ; Defines symbol used for calling kernel32's functions

includelib \masm32\lib\kernel32.lib ; Tells the linker to link kernel32

.code


entryPt proc
 local inHandle:DWORD
 local outHandle:DWORD
 ; I'm very hungry!
 push -11 ; Give me the Standard output handle!
 call GetStdHandle ; Nom nom!
 mov outHandle,eax

 push -10 ; Give me the Input Handle!
 call GetStdHandle ; Nom Nom!
 mov inHandle,eax

 .while (eax == eax) ; WHILE TRUE
  push inhandle
  call FlushConsoleInputBuffer ; Now, this is SUPPOSED to clean the input buffer, but i'll explain why i don't think it's working

  push 0 ; This parameter is required to be null
  push 0 ; Pointer to a buffer which will receive the number of bytes actually written. For some reason, this can be null for WriteConsole, but not ReadConsole
  push sizeof txt
  push offset txt
  push outHandle
  call WriteConsole

  call pollByte

  .if (al == "a")
   .break
  .endif 
 .endw
 push 0 ; Exit Code 0
 call ExitProcess ; Bye!

entryPt endp



pollByte proc
 local garbo:DWORD
 local res:BYTE
 local handle:DWORD

 push -10
 call GetStdHandle
 mov handle,eax

 
 push 0 ; don't care for pInputControl
 lea eax,garbo ; where the "how much chars were actually written" goes
 push eax
 push 1 ; I only want one byte
 lea eax,res ; the buffer
 push eax
 push handle
 call ReadConsole
 movzx eax,res
 ret
pollByte endp

.data

txt db "Type a: "


end entryPt ; End file and define entry point for the linker

OOPS! Posted early. I'll edit when i'm done. Done.


The problem is, the program prints out "Type a:" as it should and when I type "a", the program returns, also what it should.

But should I type any letter other than "a", the next line the program will print out is "Type a:  Type a:  Type a: ", and if I type more letters than one, the program will printout more "Type a"s

I suspect the reason behind this is because ReadConsole is reading the previous input and therefore ending the function before polling for more bytes. But isn't FlushConsoleInputBuffer supposed to clean previous inputs?

Post by: Missing? NO! on December 12, 2018, 07:03:38 pm
I haven't been here in a few weeks, but a lot has happened in that timeframe.

I'm gonna talk about one specific thing that happened to me on Thanksgiving this year that undoubtedly has changed my life forever.

I'm a member of my University's marching band, and, every other year, we take a trip over to the eastern side of the state to play at a football game between my school and our school's rivals. The trip, in my director's words, is a "hardship" -- making a 6 hour roadtrip on Thanksgiving day instead of visiting with your family and eating turkey is never easy. Add in the fact that we have to split a hotel room bed, and, well, let's just say things aren't always peachy.

This year was exponentially worse, however. On our way to the eastern side of the state, my bus came to a stop at the side of the road (we took a caravan of 7 buses over; it's a big band). I thought this was a little weird at first as we had just stopped at a rest stop about a half hour beforehand, so I took off my headphones to see what was going on. A few minutes passed, and then one of the bus drivers walked onto our bus, clearly a bit panicked, asking that anyone who was "able bodied and strong" to get off the bus and help. I put my jacket on and walked outside -- I definitely wasn't prepared to see what I saw that night.

One of the buses in our caravan had flipped completely over onto its side, with instruments and bodies scattered everywhere. As I walked outside, there were people in various states of shock and injury; some were sobbing but relatively uninjured, some were completely silent, bloody, and in shock, some were bleeding heavily on the ground, and others were laying completely motionless on the side of the road. It was one of the most traumatic things I've ever experienced -- at least initially, when I walked out there, I wasn't sure if people laying on the side of the road were alive or dead. That's a scary enough thought as is, but considering the fact that I'm friends with many of the people on the flipped bus, well, that just made it even scarier.

Those who were injured were airlifted or taken via ambulance to local hospitals. The rest of us who were uninjured took shelter at an elementary school nearby. I don't think it was the accident itself that changed me, but what happened afterwards that has given me an entirely new perspective on life.

Despite all the tragedy that had occurred in the past few hours for myself and the rest of my bandmates, we rallied and made the absolute best of the situation that we could. Even though 56 of us were injured in a bus crash just a few hours earlier, those who were healthy refused to hang their heads. While we were all worried about our fellow bandmates, some of us played basketball with each other, trying to pass the time. Others read books to their sections, trying to provide a moment of calm among a bad situation. Even the locals of the town we were staying in brought us Thanksgiving leftovers, food, blankets, and a dog to make sure that we were taken care of during our darkest hour. Over the course of the three hours we were there, we probably had well over 100 people stop in to bring us food and to make sure we were okay. It goes without saying that I think that'll be the greatest showcase of the human spirit I'll ever experience until the day I die.

We decided to not continue on with our trip in respect to those who were injured, and instead chose to stay in a local town nearby until the roads cleared and we could go home. Rather than attend the game in person, we'd watch it on TV and cheer from afar. The number of warm wishes we got during this time was nothing short of incredible, either. Other marching bands from across the country reached out to us with warm wishes and videos hoping for a speedy recovery. Our football team discussed before the game about playing for us (the marching band). Even our rival school's marching band played our school's fight song during pregame in order to honor us. They also kept our seats open and reserved for us, as a signal that, while we weren't able to be there, our presence was still felt. Even after the game, the coach of the football team said that they played this game for us, and presented us with a game ball.

As for the band itself, well, we didn't let our spirits get dampened one bit, and that was probably the most amazing thing to me. Despite all that had just happened, and the fact that, rather than at the game, in the stands, amongst the fans, we were instead in the lobby of a Holiday Inn cheering on our football team, our spirits never wavered. Though we couldn't play our instruments, we "sang" our music, danced through our choreography, cheered our team on, and went through our typical gameday traditions just like any other day. In our darkest moment, we continued to shine and be resilient, showing that, yes, you may be able to break our bus, but our spirit will always remain unbroken. I was absolutely overjoyed and incredibly proud of all of my friends in band for showing the spirit and resilience that they did. I'll never forget it.

Before this entire event, I never really thought about how much I have to be thankful for. It's a really weird feeling -- almost indescribable -- when you see a bunch of your friends go through a traumatic experience like this. Even though none of them were permanently injured (people are still recovering, but everyone is expected to make a full recovery), it's really weird to think that that could have very easily been me in their same position. It's also very weird to think about that it could have been much, much worse than it ended up being (how many times do you hear about bus crashes where multiple fatalities are involved?).

I have a newfound appreciation for the human spirit. I have a newfound appreciation for small towns. I have a newfound appreciation for my friends (you guys included). I have a newfound appreciation for easy driving conditions. I have a newfound appreciation for the band I'm in. And I have a newfound appreciation for life in general. Life can be over so fast; it's important to live it as best as you can until then. You never know when a day could be your last.

This is going in the topiclessness thread because I really didn't know where else to put it. I just wanted to put some thoughts out there that have been on my mind recently.

I've thrown some articles below. Take a look and thanks for reading this!

On the topic of Undertale, currently giving up indefinitely on Genocide because I just can not beat Kdtodu jxu Kdtoydw. Bit of a shame, because up to that point I was actually enjoying it more than Pacifist. Discord said it was safe to look up about Wqijuh so now I'm diving into the lore a bit. I instantly click away at any mention of the Genocide route, aside from stuff I was spoiled on like jxu vqsj oek vywxj iqdi.

I like the idea behind that, but just don't have it in me to spend an entire day repeatedly failing an action-command-based boss (I generally get them down to about 1/3 health at best, and that's after resetting and making sure to pick up all the best items for it.) Maybe when the game's had more time to sit with me I'll feel more determined.

Cool to hear you've been practicing that so much, though.

The novel was meant to take place in an alternate history where dinosaurs continue to exist, resulting in modern society being one massive dystopia. Except the end result didn't have much of a dystopia vibe to it aside from the occasional mention of a demolished building here and there, and plenty of pothole-riddled streets thanks to the giant reptiles. Lots of dinosaur action, though, so I got that right.

I didn't really like the plot, either. The hero's dinosaur is kidnapped by a group of mercenaries who plan to sell it. My main problem with this was that I wanted to show them killing a majority of the bad guys together, but they spend more than half the story apart. I don't know, maybe I'm just being fussy over nothing.

I'm currently rewriting the plot outline for like the eightieth time and it's a lot closer to what I originally wanted - a dystopic world overrun by dinosaurs and crime, and the bad guys get theirs after fucking with the wrong man and the wrong dinosaur. It's still got that personal angle to the feud, and hopefully I won't have too much Writer's Regret (TM) after finishing it.

I just got a new soldering iron set for xmas, courtesy of my uncle. I went to use it to hardmod a PS2. Good news: PS2 hardmodded for easy discswap and SwapMagic with original ejector. Bad news: the iron barely made it through that before oxidizing to unusability. Even after I properly wiped the tip off with a damp, clean rag before and during use, it still corroded to s**t in seconds once power was applied. (No, tinning didn't help. The solder layer oxidized too.)

Soldering irons rust to dust in my hands in seconds. Every time. Even when taken care of properly. f**k me...

Pretty much everything I write is action-adventure oriented, and my heroes typically engage in vigilante justice. Also whenever I write something original, it's set in Canada. I've always enjoyed writing, although I don't have any specific influences regarding authors. I can say without a doubt that my favorite book series is The Executioner (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Executioner_(book_series)), though.

As for long term goals: I want to make lots of money and have it turned into a half-assed movie adaptation staring Nicolas Cage.

Discord has done a lot of out-of-place TOSings recently. The events with Quackity HQ is one that comes to mind.

It's going in there for now! @ISSO, I think they complement each other well.

(That video made me think of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB57xnudhHw)
^ that has WAY more spoilers than what I asked about above, by the way. :P

Neat :)

Oi, Piranha Plant is out. I read somewhere that using it in one of the three Mob Smash modes (don't remember which) can corrupt your save file. Unconfirmed because I don't have the Online backup, so I don't want to try.

Also f**k the paid online, I don't care about the extras (give me GC VC and we'll talk, Nintendo), and why do I have to pay to back up my saves?!? Tempted to use Fusée Gelée to do just that... -_-

Ouch, that's concerning. I think I may have received mine through email. Is Classic Mode fine?

Yes, I empathise with that, like we didn't have to pay before so for a lot of us it can feel like an insult, and in a sense there is not much new (yet) like GC VC. Additionally not everyone has the money say if they want to play Smash, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, etc. online. (that's if those require the payment? Not sure?) ✿

I guess it is. Also having the plant appear in All-Star Smash seems to be OK as whale.

As for my hesitation to use Fusée Gelée, well for starters I don't have the required cable, and I'm unsure how exactly I'd do it.

I finally managed to set up the Pokemon Red disassembly. :V So far, all I've done with the game is edit the uppercase letters, added stereo panning to some songs, added a new wild Pokemon to route 1, edited Red's sprites as you can see, and changed some text. I got a basic plot of my hack down, but I don't want to give anything away until I implement some things. For now, I'll give you a screen shot preview. Please note, I suck at sprite art and I'm better at programming. So sorry if the text hurts your eyes! :P And don't ask about that Snorlax, in time you'll figure out what exactly is going on! Also it's a greyscale image, because I used Emulicious. (It's tools aren't the best for Game Boy hacking, it's better with Master System and game gear which is what I usually work with but for testing the hack it gets the job done. I do have bgb installed. ;) )

Complete coincidence that I found this thread today, but apparently it was around this day of the year I found my first shiny (before anyone knew about RNG).

EDIT: I remember eating candy that I was hiding in my room during it, which must have been from a Valentine's thing at school, so it was very likely around then. February 14, 2005 was a Monday, but it seems like the kind of thing a teacher would have said "let's just get this over with at the end of a Friday" about, so I can't be exactly sure.

I was never lucky enough to encounter a shiny (of course besides Gyarados in Gen 2) in any of the games until Omega Ruby, where I caught a shiny Reshiram, without needing to reset at all! I wasn't necessarily looking for one, I just went to the worm hole, and there it was! I caught it with my master ball, took a picture of it, and posted it on Facebook. xD I lost the game afterwards, but found it again about a year later. Thankfully after I did I transferred Reshiram to Sun. I didn't get a legit shiny in any of the older games until GS were released on the Virtual Console, the Pokemon I caught was a shiny Rattata.

Something in case anyone is interested. I acknowledge some people may dislike me for this but I'm adamant about it now. It's something I've thought about lots of times before, but I'm adamant about stopping emulators for good, just because in England it's a crime/at least potentially a crime even if you dump your own ROMs (Nintendo in the past were/are against this since during the NES days). This means I won't be able to make more specific analysis to the ROMs.

At the same time I don't want to take the situation too far and stop/disagree with people who do. I don't want them to get in trouble but I don't want to endorse it either.

I will still be posting glitches on my channel and analysing unused content, but may avoid certain custom programs (i.e. memory editors, fan games) except cheating devices. ✿

Yes I relate. I feel from one perspective it is a grey area, if you own the game what's wrong with having a copy for research, but also from Nintendo's perspective, unauthorised game copying has always been challenged or unendorced, and  they don't like derivative works (I'm not saying these are definitely illegal, I've heard (from a black and white no feelings perspective) above all terms of use, the jurisdiction body has the power in consideration to what e.g  Nintendo fights for.) On the other hand that's not necessarily correct as it seems a lot more complex than that.

So yeah I don't know if memory editors matter as much, but from Nintendo's employees point of view some of them don't like it. The Game Genie was challenged in court as a derivative work. In the end the developers of Game Genie won (the idea argued that it's more like skipping to the end of a book) yet it's probably not necessarily the case either. What if you used Game Genie to find those artidicial glitch Trainers as you're fighting trainers that likely don't exist outside of arbitrary code execution (I suppose if the game landed in the middle of the battle routine and skipped the -200 from class code, and that  goes into semantics too; is unintended ROM execution arbitrary code execution? It is and isn't it feels.

But also it's complex now ACE in video games is more mainstream, and you can write your own programs like memory editors and even custom sprites. It then becomes a subjective matter of 'what is a derivative work', in one sense you're not editing the physical ROM in another sense you created say a Yoshi which it is possible to keep on the save file until it is destroyed.

So it's like I don't want to have a guilty conscience or just feel that way in a sense that may be impossible unless I was like 'forget about it' which happened to me before.

I relate with how you feel though it's like I've betrayed the community and blindly appealed to the authority who bluntly are not gods, you don't have to obey them but you still might get caught, and for me it has made me feel I've betrayed both my fans and Nintendo and its  hurt my pride as well . I'm not going to be like that though re 'shoot if using emulator', people at the end of the day do what they like. I know it hurts though and I'm sorry for that. I'll still use a GameShark like device (physical cartridge) to analyse the code; reverse engineering for fair use historically has won to the best of my knowledge also I asked Nintendo directly about 3DS capture boards they asserted it's legal just they don't endorse it, that and that import games are fine after I got concerned with Lik-Sang (?) and Japan state being elevated about it.

In a nut shell I respect your opinion but I feel like I have to do this too.

I relate with that. Again without the emotion in this case, it's bits in a computer. As with ownership in general this may be flawed; the idea that corporations can control who has the product (I.e  the end user must pay for it, or a license to one computer only, or they can only use it under certain other conditions) is like expecting just because you have food doesn't sadly mean you may cannot get robbed.) So in that sense ignorance is bliss, often it seems the most down to Earth people are more rational than those in power. Hmm.

It's something I've thought about lots of times before, but I'm adamant about stopping emulators for good [...]
This is complete madness, and here's why: emulators are the only way to preserve history. The hardware decays, software also decays, but emulators keep being maintained, and go together with documentation. You could argue that documentation is enough, but how can you check it's not wrong if you don't put it into practice? Moreover, what good is the documentation if, god forbid, using it is illegal?
Companies make laws such that preservation is impossible so they can sell consoles such as Nintendo's "mini" models, but did you notice how glad they are the homebrew/emulation community did their preservation work in their stead? Nintendo used the iNES format (maybe they downloaded ROMs off of the Internet, maybe they just had the ROMs and used the readily available header format; I don't have proof of neither), Sony used PCSX2 ReARMed, and so on and so forth. They want it to be illegal for the customer to do themselves, just like they want people to have their approval before being able to criticize.
It's batshit insane, and personally I am adamant that emulation SHOULD be legal, as is downloading ROMs off the Internet if there's no way to get them otherwise. Because sure, Super Mario World is properly preserved, being sold in a ton of Virtual Console entries, but what about Ninja Turtles on NES? A lot of people played that game, it's fairly well-known, and yet Nintendo didn't bother re-releasing it.

I'm with ISSOtm on this subject. Nothing lasts forever, and emulators are a great way to preserve old consoles that are obsolete. If you choose not to use emulators that's cool, but I don't think everyone should be banned from using them. Another reason why emulators are great, programmers who don't have the proper tools such as flash carts to test their games or demos out can rely on accurate emulators to test their games out. (Though you'd have to know which ones properly emulate the hardware you're coding on. It's far from the ideal method of testing, but it may be all the programmer has. I've been there before.)
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Sherkel on February 17, 2019, 11:44:58 am
Previous few posts won me over. For me personally it's always been a matter of "just go ahead", which will inevitably win out over legality when it's simply how nearly everyone acts (the limits of this are obvious, but casual data sharing is nowhere close), and there's a ton of practical reasoning in defense of it too which the above posters illustrated clearly.

Anyway, @Zow, it's this:
At the same time I don't want to take the situation too far and stop/disagree with people who do. I don't want them to get in trouble but I don't want to endorse it either.

I'm getting mixed signals here. The formulation in the second quote sounds really like emulators should be illegal, full stop. If you said it's actually a mistake, however, I would absolutely take your word.

Another reason why emulators are great, programmers who don't have the proper tools such as flash carts to test their games or demos out can rely on accurate emulators to test their games out. (Though you'd have to know which ones properly emulate the hardware you're coding on. It's far from the ideal method of testing, but it may be all the programmer has. I've been there before.)
It's actually more or less the only way to be able to debug one's programming - I'm using BGB and it's all fine and dandy, but if I was unable to, I'd have to either buy Nintendo's official hardware for upwards of $1k + find their official devkit software, which is designed for really old PCs and, ironically for this argument, that I might have to run in DOSBox; it's not impossible, but it'd kill basically all homebrew programming. Having to debug ASM blindly is not a pleasant experience, believe me.
Title: Re: The Glitchy Thread of Topiclessness (#3)
Post by: Princess Torchic Owl Lover ☽ ❤ on February 18, 2019, 09:04:54 am
OK. Yeah it is a mistake I feel, I suppose then maybe Nintendo should make an official ROM dumper and/or enable copying but just for the consumer or museum/analysis. It is said by Nintendo unlicensed emulation can't make any sense, but I believe maybe there is a solution. (e.g. if Nintendo sold a ROM dumper for all its old consoles and an emulator with it (and I think they should choose BGB but modify it slightly in my opinion and the debugger and all its original features should be included). The only thing maybe is that the dumped ROM and the emulator work with a security code to avoid playing official Nintendo ROMs from the Internet. (and I believe the ROM otherwise should be exactly the same. This wouldn't stop piracy, I think that's impossible, but may or may not help. You're right that I did have mixed messages but its only that it could encourage people who don't have the game to steal it. I don't know if I believe that something can be preserved forever, but possibly eventually Nintendo and its successors will enter public domain, it may depend on social culture or bankruptcy.

Eh... system was released in '89, dev kits probably went out in '88, maybe '87... old enough to be possible that it could run on Amiga, which'd mean needing an Amiga, too. They coulda been an earlier adopter of IBM's 8088/8086 processors and PC-DOS, but it's more likely to have been an Amiga devkit.

That's basically DRM, and by essence, DRM can be circumvented.
Also, this basically makes no sense. Nintendo isn't taking care of the games or systems anymore, what reason do they have to keep making money off of them? Once sold, a cartridge isn't their property anymore, and so they should be making money because cartridges are dying one after the other, forcing people to switch to ROMs? Come on, that doesn't make sense.
The correct way to do it is to focus on remaking, because that is a thing worth paying for: fixing up the games' mistakes, updating them to the present day's taste, and so on. I'm against this making money purely off of nostalgia.
Fighting piracy makes sense for games they're actively making money off of, but for games that are basically abandonware, it doesn't.

Speaking of both emulation and obscure old Pokémon-like games (which tend to be well-liked here), I came across this article about a GBC title called Zok Zok Heroes (https://shonumi.github.io/articles/art8.html), thanks to a video our former resident SCf3 posted yesterday (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYYB99JnYEs). A really good read. Has anyone here played it?

Congrats on the new job, by the way, Raven Freak! Sounds like a big step up from retail.

I have it and played the beginning of it, I agree its cool yeah :). I don't complete or sometimes even play the monster battling games, which I colllect but I love to collect them. Monster Traveler and Space-Net, Sanrio Timenet are interesting too, and I love STN (beat it) and Space-Net. Sadly the last time I checked Niconico the SN walkthrough was taken down, but I guess analysing the guidebook to find out what to do next may help. I made it to the port town, and it has interesting lore. The goddess Isis is in it, in an egyptian themed town.

Then there is Network Adventure Bugsite and Dino Device, and those Smilesoft PlayStation (text based?) games, a number of Telefang fans like you know.

Also Koto Battle and Card Hero are great, had the most fun with Koto Battle.

Net de Get Minigame @100 by Mobile21 (possibly dead Nintendo/Konami company) is another quirky minigame compilation like Chee-Chai Alien.

Congrats Raven Freak!

Thank you both! That game looks pretty interesting, since the Full Changer is now emulated, I wonder if there will be a English translation of the game sometime in the future. If that's the case, then I'll check the game out. I couldn't do much now, seeing how I don't know any Japanese whatsoever! So I wouldn't know what was going on. :V

Actually same. I know a little (up to elementary level), but I need tools to try and understand most sentences. I think sometimes you can get by without knowing Japanese with memorization but yeah I relate its hard. :/

Gonna release some feelings. I don't like how in Smash Ultimate you can get banned for inactivity or excessive SDs in non-team battles. What if a relative or friend called you on the phone, or if the postman/woman came, etc? On the other hand, I suppose you are expected to be active all the time.

The past couple of days have been a bit rough, my feet have been killing me because I'm not used to standing in mainly one spot most of the day. I finally started working in my area at my new job, and it's 10 hour shifts with only 10 minute breaks and a half hour lunch so It's a huge change for me, seeing how I worked at Walmart before and we got 15 minute breaks, with a hour lunch and only 8 hour days. My body just needs to get used to the job is all, I'll gladly take this mundane job where I basically punch out tons of fan grates, working Monday through Thursday over a retail job where I had to work all Holidays and weekends and dealing with rude customers. Plus I'm already making more than I ever did at my previous job, and even make more than what I would if I was to be promoted at my old job, with less responsibilities.

Adding to this, I hate this part of online. Sometimes I get an opponent who has a very poor connection, and, rather than play through a large amount of lag, I'd rather just SD three times and find someone else. But nope. I get punished for that. :(

Yeah, it's just… oof. Part of my upcoming life situation is why I'm not gonna get online when I get a Switch. I'm not gonna have a good connection.

It's a shame because I'll miss playing against people from across the world, but it's just not worth it. Too much trouble, especially when I'm paying for it.

Besides, even when there's theoretically not any connection issues, there's just something about playing online that seems... less fun. Sorta rage inducing.

I have no idea what it is.

I finished the second draft of my novel in less time than I expected.

Which kind of amazes me because the dinosaur-related violence is already fairly brutal.

I'm just going to share this here. :P For those who read my post in the discord, this damn Pokemon took me a few days to actually add to the game because of one line of code, a jump to the done routine for loading the base stats. Yep, that's a common thing for programmers. Whether it be a jump to a specific bit of code, or one damn typo. :V Disregard the font, I suck at sprite art. I might contact one of my friends to help with the sprites, I dunno yet. I'm probably going to change it's base stats a bit, originally it was using Krabby's just for testing purposes. Also I don't feel like making a thread for this hack yet, because it's still in early stages.

My thoughts on that are mostly held back by the questions of "is this the place for it?" and "is it work-safe?" The same goes for other recent posts of yours. So, I'm not ignoring them, but need to take time to decide how to thoughtfully respond and whether or not to on this platform. Then again, you're in charge now, so maybe those guidelines can afford to be stretched.

As for the part about glitches, anyway, I'd be hard-pressed to believe Nintendo cares at all. Have they been specifically targeting your videos, Crystal_'s, or others? Because if they wanted to, they could. Responses they gave even back when they supposedly demonized glitches were vague and dismissive: I recall reading a response to a fan's question about MissingNo. back when their site had a mail section that just said "don't mess with glitches," no elaboration or blatant discouragement whatsoever, let alone legal details. Nor have they since acknowledged any other than the very few minor bugs in Gen VI and on that they patched. Even with the combination of R/B/Y and Pokébank, they've said nothing about the absolutely game-breaking glitches in the former set of games, something that initially surprised me.

Tying all the sections together a bit, what have you simply found yourself doing the most for personal fulfillment? Which direction have you naturally felt led in time and time again? I think your videos, status, contribution count, and online time suggest a clear answer.

Yeah you're right. Sorry, I feel I was being unreasonable. I do love doing this; as glitching is my passion and I have fans who want me to continue. I've now removed some of my posts.

I wasn't saying that you had to go that far. :P Up to you if you want them gone, of course. This place would be a lot less active without its off-topic boards, and members on the Discord regularly go into territory where I prefer to keep to myself just out of preference. You're talking to someone who used to regularly come up with idiolects and alphabets on the spot so people wouldn't know what I was writing, so...I certainly can't call it "wrong".

I forgot what I thought wasn't work-safe anyway, so I guess what's done is done. It's good to see you more confident about getting back into glitching!

Personally I'm enjoying it all a lot, but I got kind of frustrated with a certain part last night and don't feel quite like going back to it yet because of that...maybe that's related to me playing while unable to sleep till after 6. ;) Really great work, though, absolutely worth a look if you're seeing this post for any reason. It's amazing how far you can go with this type of hacking, and the overarching design and witty dialogue certainly help.

Welcome back Ganix!! :)

I haven't seen it yet, as unfortunately have only got access to my Wii U at the moment. I saw the video though and it was amazing as usual, and fun that it's not out of the question something like it could happen re: emulator escape.

There's a reason it has its own section in the Discord, I can say that much. It's especially of interest for those into assembly, but is still mostly "normal gameplay". There are two and a half more days to play it with the leaderboard and world map online, but if it's like 2018, all the save files will remain available afterward. Although, now that I think about it, you need to progress on one before making progress on another, and later backtracking to the first one and going back and forth a bunch...so this might be the only chance to "properly" play it. I'll have to ask ZZAZZ about that. Thanks, by the way!

As for suggestions for Smash, I can't really think of any. I'm just not into it enough anymore, and probably only ever was due to friends. I could see Starfy working, though.

It's a filter for OBS that fixes "dead lines" (so to speak) that appear when playing through GBI, resulting in a pixel-perfect image. The paste explains it better than I could.

I'm using my earnings to document/preserve video footage of some forgotten/unusual Nintendo published software. Right now my focus is on the Japanese DSiWare games, which could eventually be lost due to 3DS eShop shutdown. Some you can't buy anymore through the eShop unfortunately (outside of piracy I suppose i.e. free shop but I'd personally not do that) such as a crossword series the Starfy composer apparently worked on (if it emerges on Yahoo Auctions Japan I'd definitely save up to buy it if the seller accepts international trade).

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqXTI_PZxIG3Esw0XW8Ff0u5hPgpJMgM1

I'm also waiting for a Korean 2DS to arrive to document a glitch only Korean G/S VC seems to have, but it works on the assumption unknown opcodes are also ignored in the Korean version, which may or may not be true. (I feel its worth it though, as bad name Pokémon can do interesting things to the game like free Pay Day money if I recall rightly, as SM has demonstrated).

freeShop doesn't even work anymore, as Ninten's CDN now 403s you if you request downloads with a cartridge ticket or no ticket. Well, I guess it technically does if you have legit tickets, but you only get those by buying through the eShop, so...

No problem.
Fun fact: due to the new setup, cartridges no longer count as valid copies of games. This means carts can't generate update tickets, so you can't update the game.

We've had hard times in the past too, and I feel sometimes the media does not understand; no matter who we are, we can all struggle with mental health, also stigma because contrary to some belief, it is often the most intelligent who suffer with mental health.

Hope this helps if you would like to analyse it ^^.

Recommendations from sceners. No 2036 timebomb (32-bit limit on Unix time, remember?), runs official Wood R4 firmware and has an internal switch for normal mode and ntrboot. Oh, and it supports exFAT. According to them, very much worth the $20. I agree, now that I have it!

Time for my monthly "bring back the GCL shop" post.
Why? From what I remember, it essentially consisted of someone saying "hey look at this file I have that I promise isn't somewhere else" and other users scrambling to pretend to make posts contributing to discussion, if they hadn't accumulated enough already.

It's just a meme I'm sure, but considering it really was that terrible I think it's a pretty funny one lmao. Makes for some fun nostalgia too, considering its been a super long time since we got rid of it. It'd be a fun but inevitable trainwreck, haha.

Why duplicate Rare Candies when you can duplicate the old man as well. :) Note: This is a real glitch, it just requires underflow and constantly adjusting your y-coordinate. I don't know if we can ever get old man glitch to work in Yellow though. :( Because the shore tiles don't give grass encounters (what old man modifies) and maps that do have grass encounters reset them to what they should be after the demonstration. Maybe with some glitch item magic though. ✿

It was a fun novelty thing, lol. I have fond memories of posting about whatever ? balance I had, and also buying a PS9 from Zowayix's shop for $900. Good times.

How unfortunate for this guy. :(

All its base stats are close to zero and its sprites usually don't even load without a freeze (except its backsprite in the later revisions of the games). ❤ ✿

remind me why the f**k i decided to take on the task of making a fully-featured port of Linux to the 3DS when I can only really modify C to allow me to fix compilation errors around 10% of the time on Linux programs???

oh, right

i got fed up with the dev community fucking flaming me over being stupid because things were labeled "impossible" when no one had tried

i now see why

is it possible to slit my wrists with a Linux kernel? I really want to rn...

i didn't even do 99.9% of the work that has even happened to the kernel since i took over the project, that was pmuch all (read: 100% thanks to) Wolfvak, who does 3DS kernel s**t all the time and gave up a few weeks in

:So it's like - too little law, everyone middle/upper-class; 'postmodernist', but insensitive; maybe anarchy robs us of our humanity for the sake of ourselves (which sounds like a paradox because in a strange reason it worked; at the end of the video there were lots and lots of skyscrapers etc. it may be deceptive (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgnO38o-Mrs) though). Also; too much law, everyone lower class, but too afraid of themselves and the government.

Also interesting ideas based on AI findings.

Though we should all probably take this with a pinch of salt.

trying to make an MD5 bruteforce collider in Python

Stats for 1024 bytes of data (interrupted mid-search):
Code: [Select]
Performance stats:
Total time: 5.83800005913 seconds, total tries: 17306, so avg. tries/sec: 2964.37133003

First script's performance was something like 50/sec for 10 bytes.


wew


EDIT: somehow it's generating more files than are possible and they're all summing differently while being the right size...??? The f**k???

EDIT 2: no it's not, it's correct, i'm just fucking dumb

Compression is a lot better on Linux since Linux has utilities for more than ZIP, RAR and 7zip.
>Original file (CPIO initramfs): 200MB
>After ZIP: 154MB
>After RAR: 148MB
>After RAR5: 147MB
>After 7z: 132MB

My mom still doesn't know I linked to her Amazon Prime account way back when and I can get LGPE for $20 right now.

Still not a good enough deal. :P
