Progress is crap.

::Facedesking a lot::

Oh god. I'm gonna go insane. Hex Editing is a nightmare. Jhack keeps crashing. Map Editor is borked. I have writer's block.

Don't know what the hell I'm going to do now, So I'm asking you guys, the few who follow this failure of a blog, for ideas.

Here is your plot:
>Meteor shower has caused a meteor to crash into the hill near your house.
>Suddenly become Psionic from said meteor, probably from radiation.
>A robotic not-bee tells you that you're in some prophecy about destroying some evil daemonic force, and you have to find 3 others.
>You are 23.
>You are in College.
>You have a decent life as your father does restricted sciencey stuff for the government, your family owns a shop in town.
>Expected to abandon this to save the world.
>To do this, you must beat the shit out of gangbangers, psychotic civilians, rabid animals, aliens, nonsensical monsters, demons, ghosts, zombies, your own mind, and somehow come on top of all of it.
>Your first friend you meet winds up being a hot psionic chick. then 2 other dudes join you.
>Mass sexual tension
>Mass profanity

Seriously. i need some new ideas. help me out guys.
Might have to resort to a DnD book. :[.

It's October in Indiana, and the Weather is borked.

Just got back from the gas station for smokes and caffeine. Slammed 2 NoDoz on a can of AMP.
On my way up there I saw the kids getting ready to get on the buses for school, and it's almost 35 outside..nd these stupid brats are out in t-shirts and shorts.

Do these kids' parents not know what the fuck a jacket is? What the hell is wrong with parents these days? I remember back when I was a young whelp going to school, if i went outside like that during what is the beginning of winter around here, we got demerits for indecent exposure!

Put some god damned clothes on these kids before you let 'em out of the house! Southern Indiana does not have a set weather pattern! It's like messing with a pair of d20's, you don't know what you're gonna get from the roll.

... speaking of DnD dice, here's an awesome set.

It all went to HELL.

So, I spend about 2 weeks coming up with dialogue and events for Onett, the first town.

I finally compiled today, and plugged it in, went to the first cop you could pick a fight with, and i shit you not, the second the battle swirl finished, i got a screen that looked like Satan himself dropped trou and shat on my emulator. The damage was so bad, it forced ZSNES to shut itself off.

I have been forced to restart everything, and thankfully I found out what was wrong and I can continue work with little interruption. I hate flag pointers. I especially hate the kind that corrupt ROM data.

Stress Balls - 6 balls, assorted colors
I'm so god damn angry..
Yeah. I think I need one of these. ====================================>


Alright. I finally got some freakin work done. I've got all the enemies and sprites modified from Twoson to Lilliput Steps altered and correct.
The biggest task is farthest away, and it isn't Text Editing. Oh no.

It's making all the NPC sprites bigger to match the PC sprites. Like Mother 3 sized NPCs.

Unfortunately, it's impossible for me to make fluid animation frames in this game engine. It's like those PARTY HARD .gifs you see on the internet. 2 frames. 2 frames sucks.

You know what else is a pain in the ass? Tile Editing on Maps. Still can't figure out how to recolor tiles. -sadface-

My ASUS EeeBox is decent, but it's not the end-all-be-all computer I really want. Kinda hoping for something with an Intel ATOM processor and a better graphics card.

Microtel AM6023 Gaming Computer with Intel Core i7 Processor 920 (2.66GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, LGA1366), 3GB DDR3/1333, 500GB SATAII, DVD-RW, NVIDIA N240 GT 1GB GDDR3 128-bit Video Card, 500 watt Power Supply, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full Version CD 64 bit  Or an i7 machine like this, 900 bucks for a machine like this? that's.. well I think it's decent. dunno about you guys but I'd shell out for it.
Sony MDR-XD200 Stereo Headphones These are pretty freakin good headphones, dudes. I own a pair, and for chiptune and trance music, they're really good. Go get a pair while they're cheap!

Anyway, I stayed up most of the night and got some work done on map editing, and replaced a few enemies with some new ones, and managed to get through about 25% of the entire encounter roster's stats. I'm using a statistics table I came up with myself that should hopefully make the game challenging.

So, I've decided to start a blog. oh *joy.* This is going to be interesting.
Anyway, gonna start posting on my progress about my hack of EarthBound, which kicks much ass, thank you very much.
