Website Advertisement / SECTOR91
« on: December 04, 2007, 09:09:42 am »
You thought I'd never do it, didn't you? I said I'd make my own website, and most of you probably laughed it off and thought it was a lost cause. BUT YOU WERE WRONG.

And now, after years of planning that went into something... admittedly pretty mediocre... I have finally created my own website from which to distribute my homemade Java games. Say hello to SECTOR91.com!

== TAKE ME THERE! ==

Before you ask, THE BATTLE SIMULATOR SOURCE CODE IS NOT ON THIS SITE. It's a funny story about that, actually... You can read more about that on the game page for it.

So, as you probably have noticed (I'm talking to YOU, Abwayax) I didn't really leave GCL. I poked in from time to time to see how the site was going, and I was waiting for the right time to reveal this project. Right now probably wasn't that right time, but I revealed it anyway. :P But now, my membership at GCL is truly over. If you want to talk to me, you can join the SECTOR91 Forums. I have my own website to run now, so I have no business being here anymore, except maybe to check on this thread.

SECTOR91 may not be impressive now, but I have bigger and better games in the works. However, it will ultimately be the community that will help make SECTOR91 a success. The official SECTOR91 game projects (all of which are named "Project (insert Greek letter here)") will be distributed under an open-source license, and anyone who wants to help improve them (or to hack and modify them) can. Oh, and JOIN THE FORUMS! Seriously!

So, for what is hopefully the really, REALLY last time, ACE91 signing off.

Site Announcements / My Official Resignation from GCL
« on: July 16, 2007, 12:22:06 pm »
ACE91 here, for probably the last time. As most of you know, I was once one of GCL's most active members, and probably the most productive article writer next to Abwayax himself. But lately, I've been away from GCL for long periods of time, and I haven't written any new articles in who-knows-how-long. For the last few months I've been effectively retired from my duties as GCL Admin, but today I'm making it official.

I hereby resign from my position as GCL Admin. Most chances you won't ever see me around here again, and on the off chance that you do, I'll only be here as an ordinary member. My retirement is for various reasons, partially because I'm not very pleased with where this forum and its staff are going (and no, I won't give names or reasons, nor will I answer questions about why I think this), but mostly because I've moved on to bigger and better things. I have my own projects and plans now, which may or may not include my own website, and frankly I've gotten somewhat bored with GCL.

I've had a great time here for the years that I've been an active member of this community, and I've learned a lot by being a part of GCL. I've made a lot of great friends here too, and I think that we've built something great together. But now that we've scoured every kilobyte of our favorite classic Pokemon games and found almost every glitch that there is to find, my job here is done. There's just not enough left to find anymore, and even if there was, I'm not sure that I'd still be as enthusiastic to find it.

So now, with my glitch researching days long over, I will vanish into the obscurity from whence I came. Don't miss me too much. :P

"And with that, POW! I'm gone!"

Pokémon Discussion / Official American D/P Release Thread
« on: April 22, 2007, 09:27:25 am »
It's finally here! Pok?mon Diamond and Pearl have been released in the U.S.! This is the official thread for all D/P release discussion--that is, if you're celebrating getting a copy of D/P or whatever, post it here instead of making your own thread about it.

As for me, I'm getting Pearl when Gamestop opens today at 10:00! YAY!
Edit: I have my Pearl Version now. It's awesome!

Okay, I'm done. ;D[/spoiler3]
But seriously, the Wii is great. The Wii remote isn't as accurate as I would have liked, and Wii Sports gets boring pretty quickly, but the console is great, as is its best launch title, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Because I got sick of Wii Sports after the first hour or so, I used the money that I got in cards from relatives to buy TLOZ:TP from a local EB Games, and now I'm hooked. I've never played a Zelda game before, and now I can't believe what I've been missing. This game is AWESOME, no doubt about it. The cutscenes may as well be scenes from a CGI movie, and the puzzles are challenging, even in the first few hours. And it's an extremely LONG game, too--it took me a few hours just to get past the prologue, and I'm still only past the first dungeon.

So, yeah. I have a Wii. Feel free to bow down and/or throw random objects at me out of jealousy. :P

Site Announcements / Return of the GCL New Year's Eve Chatroom Party!
« on: December 29, 2006, 12:27:34 am »
Last year on New Year's Eve, most of the GCL forum members got together in the chatroom for a New Year's party. Considering how much fun that was last year, I've decided to organize one again. All GCL members are invited to join the chatroom late New Year's Eve for a gigantic New Year's party. There is no exact time for this; just New Year's Eve before midnight. However, if you live outside of America, you may have to join in at a different time. I'm hoping this will be a great way to get most of the GCL members together in chat for once, and just have some zany and random fun.

Have a happy new year!

Pokémon Discussion / D/P Release Date Revealed!
« on: December 18, 2006, 09:47:01 pm »
Serebii.net has just announced that Nintendo has revealed the release date for Pok?mon Diamond & Pearl Versions in America: April 22nd, 2007! Finally, no more confusion about the release date. April 22nd is lot later than I would have liked, but at least we know now.

Video Games / Pok?mon Battle Simulator Beta (Bugfix 0.4.1 now available!)
« on: November 24, 2006, 12:18:51 am »
This is a project that I've been working on in secret for a while now. It's a fully D/P-compliant Pok?mon battle simulator written in Java. You battle agaisnt a computer foe that currently only picks moves at random. Download the attached ZIP files and check it out. I don't have time to explain much about it now, but the INSTRUCTIONS.txt file in battlesim_beta_0.x.zip has all the info you need. Remember, this is a BETA, so a lot of stuff doesn't work and the graphics look pretty bad. You can add your own teams, Pok?mon, and moves if you want, but you have to know the syntax of the data files.

To use the program, first download battlesim_beta_0.x.zip and unzip it. Then, download the two image ZIP files and unzip them to the images folder in the program's directory. Front and back sprites for all 493 Pok?mon take up a lot of space... Your should be able to double-click the JAR file and run the program, otherwise read in the instructions how to run it from the command line. If you don't want to download all of the images, read in the instructions how to run the program in text mode.

Latest version: 0.4.1

Site Announcements / Site Updated
« on: November 13, 2006, 06:41:01 pm »
Now that the database problem has been fixed, I have updated the site with a few new things. First, the Ditto Trick page has been updated with a much more detailed description of the trick, and images (stolen from the Mew Trick page :P). Also, I have written a Yellow Missingno. page. Currently, it is only accessible through the URL http://glitchcity.ath.cx/docs/yellowmissingno, because I haven't decided whether to put it on the sidebar or incorporate it into a glitchdex entry for Yellow MissingNo.

There may be more updates later today.

The Dumpster Out Back / MySQL bug in the Admin section
« on: November 10, 2006, 01:18:46 pm »
The Admin section seems to be messed up. Whenever I go to the "Documentation" section, instead of listing the documents on the site, it gives me this error:

Quote
Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\wamp\www\glitchcity\admin.docs.php on line 15

Also, whenever I tried to add a new article on Yellow MissingNo., I got this error message on the "Article Saved" page:

Quote
Table './glitchcitylabs/docs' is marked as crashed and should be repaired

So there's apparently some kind of error in the MySQL database. If Abwayax is reading this, please fix it!

Art / Ace's Sig Shop
« on: October 28, 2006, 10:54:30 am »
Welcome to ACE91's Sig Shop! I can make you awesome sig banners for the low, low price of ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! :D Just post your request, and I'll see what I can do. I might not have that much time to work on your sig on weekdays, though--school takes up most of my time anymore. :( For some examples of my work, see below:


Space-themed sig that I use on NSider.


This is one of my favorites--and the one i'm using right now. :P


StarFox-themed sig that I used on TRSRockin for a time.


Another StarFox one, this one was extremely thin so I could fit text under it on NSider while staying within the 45-pixel limit.

I've made many others, but I can't show them because they aren't on my Photobucket account right now.

Generation IV Glitch Discussion / New D/P Glitch Found!
« on: October 23, 2006, 01:40:47 pm »
http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=161438

Looks like Diamond and Pearl Versions may be glitchy after all... first we find the "Egg" Glitch Pok?mon, and now this! Someone has found a new glitch known as the "Darkrai and Sheimi Glitch", named so because you can use it to catch those two otherwise unobtainable Pok?mon. The gist of it is this: there is a glitch in the Elite 4 room that allows you to Surf through the door. Do this, and you can walk around in the blackness outside of the room. As you walk around in this blackness, you will enter other areas in the game. This can be used to reach the islands that Darkrai and Sheimi are on, although some trick with the Shinou Underground is also required. Because going underground requires you to save your game, however, there is a risk of game deletion with this trick, so be wary.

Looks like GCL may have a future in studying D/P glitches after all. ;D

It's an Ice-Type team, because it's based on Yukinooh's Snowstorm ability and the move Hail.

Generation IV Glitch Discussion / Diamond/Pearl MissingNo.!
« on: October 04, 2006, 09:26:46 pm »
Someone found the missing-number Pok?mon in Diamond & Pearl versions; you can view a thread on NSider about it here. There's a link to a Youtube video of it on the second page--the one on the topic post doesn't work. Apparently, it's not that hard to get, you just enter a 2vs2 battle with only one non-KO'd Pok?mon and an egg. Unfortunately, this makes it effectively impossible to "catch" this glitch Pok?mon and use it on Wi-Fi battling. :(

As you may know, Pokémon Diamond & Pearl versions have been released in Japan today! EVERYBODY CELEBRATE! ;D

The good folks at Serebii.net already have copies of the game and are documenting it as we speak. Currently, the new Gym Leaders and the new HMs have already been revealed, and more is coming! I'll edit this post with the new information as it comes out. What do you think about Pokémon Diamond & Pearl versions and the new info that is being revealed? Discuss it here!

Update: Some new Pokémon have been revealed: The evolutions of the starters (which look much cooler than any of the fakes that have been going around), a pre-evo of Lapras, and others. D/P appears to have a lot of evolutions and pre-evolutions of existing Pokémon...

Update: Serebii claims that there are 114 new Pokémon in D/P, bringing the grand total number of Pokémon up to 500. HOLY CARP, THAT'S A LOT!

*SCared Fir3 was here editing your post (points above)*
Edit by Ace: The "carp" was intentional. :P It's a joke I picked up from my friend Draslushee on the NSider forums.

Update: Serebii has posted a data dump from the Pokémon section of the game data in the Discovery Thread showing the base stats and types of all of the Pokémon in the game. There are some odd type combos, including many Ghost-type combos. Check it out!

Update: The Pokémon that the first Gym Leader has have been revealed in the Discovery Thread, and it seems that there are TMs numbered over 50! W00T!

Update: Guess I forgot to update for a few days. :P Just about everything about the game except a complete walkthrough is on Serebii now. Check out the Pokédex!
