Welcome to page 2 of this thread!

This month's It's aMAZEing features a Snow Bunny! The idea came up when it was literally snowing outside last week, despite it being about 22°C outside no more than three days earlier. It is also 26°C out today, so it was a weird day.
Anyway, bunny!



Check out the maze I this fellow into right here!



This month also marks the start of a new season of Anniversary Announcements! Check it out here!
No new things this year, and while Committee Interviews is not in this edition, it will appear in a few months! This is to let the newcomers adjust a bit before I bombard them with questions they can't yet answer. This is also why I interviewed veterans earlier than newer people last year.

A new month with a new edition of The 'Shroom. This month features a purple Pikmin, to celebrate Reggie Fils-Aimé's famous quote alluding one.

Mario Awards XIII / Re: Tournaments

That reminds me, if I'm hosting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe again this year, I will also be using a family plan to allow people without NSO of their own to participate. If needed I can also help out for other tournaments on the Switch.

Hm, it's possible I may end up hosting one of my own. Are you planning races or battles like last time?
Yeah, vs and/or battles. You hosted a time trials tournament last year so I didn't think it would clash.

HelpDesk / Re: How to check the rankings based on Likes?

Use the search function with these terms: "am an as at ax be by do go if he in is it me my no of on or ox so to up we us er re".
Set it to match any words, check the box for Show results as messages, and set Minimum likes required in post to some number to filter out posts with too few likes until there's none left.
Don't forget to enable any boards you may be ignoring below the search parameters.

You can use this approach both with and without a user, for a general or user-specific ranking.

I don't think there is a way to view who gave the most likes though.

I'd like to do another Hint Hunt, similar to last year's one. Hopefully it'll involve a different super-popular game, which I haven't decided on yet. I'm all ears for suggestions so let me know of any games that would be good for a contest like this.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has potential. Its world is a lot larger and less diverse in comparison to Super Mario Odyssey though, which should be considered if you go that route, but the different villages do stand out somewhat.

The Marioverse / Re: Explore Maps in Mario Games at Noclip Website

I've looked into the inner workings of this site a bit and am even more impressed.

This site doesn't just show map models, it actually loads the raw source files that are straight from the game to your browser, processes that and then renders everything.
For example, if you load a Mario Kart Wii, Splatoon or other map in that format, it downloads the actual SZS archive file and uses some format-specific magic to show that.

In other words, it does what BrawlBox does to open the files, then renders the files better than BrawlBox ever could.

That site is fantastic, they even animated some textures and objects and mipmaps function.

sounds super interesting but the link seems to not work :[
What seems to be the problem?

Fils Aimé means loved son.

No *bleep*.
Do tell how anyone without knowledge of French should have known that.

I am disappointed with this thread's lack of :bowser: as icon.

Why can't there be an Italian MarioWiki?
There is... It's partnered with the German and English ones.

New month, new maze, new art! This time we have the Smiley Flower from the Yoshi's Island series.



Check out the maze I this into right here!

This time I used a different method for creating the maze as I described in May 2018 with the Parabeetle, to see if that is another efficient or quality way to make them.
After making the base figure, I drew a grid of lines on top of it to be the near finals walls:



These walls were then painfully intersected and split to be individually editable. Haven't found an easy way to do that yet.

Then I plotted out the real and main distraction paths on top of that:



After that I just removed all walls that were in the way and plotted out the remaining pathways.

I feel that this resulted in a more natural maze with more effective dead ends, as it's easier to plot the dead end this way, although for a first time it took a bit more time to complete. Maybe that'll improve in the future. Time will tell!

You can also try re-calibrating the control stick, there is an option in system settings for that.

Happy new month! And year!

My birthday is this month! Been happening about 22 times now, and all were in January for some reason. Either way, that means that it is soon time for cake, thus a maze on a cake!



Check out the maze I made this sweet into right here!



Also be sure to check out out the results of The Holiday 'Shroomfinity Scavenger while you're at it!
This also features a big table with all the locations of the fighters and spirits in last month's edition. Fun fact: this table is actually not coded like a table, but in a more advanced way that makes sure it actually looks good on screens of all sizes, and wraps the columns around to do that.

HelpDesk / Re: Switch continues to go into sleep mode while charging.

Being charged or not does not affect sleep mode.

You can modify the timeout though, go to system settings and find the sleep mode menu, somewhere near the bottom.

Okay, so I need to hook up my Ubuntu notebook to the LAN and start shoveling the gigabytes from one server to the other, right? ^^
Ubuntu supports question marks so that would be a good bet. You could see if you have options to only filter those broken images to save some time. Good luck!

There we have a problem then.

On Windows, question marks are invalid characters to use in filenames, and as such they are replaced by underscores by FileZilla while downloading them.
What you'll have to do if possible is to download them again, but using a different operating system, then upload them to the new place.

Installed Linux on my laptop this weekend.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Pretty clean, and likely to stay that way because of how the general workflow on this OS is.
Background image was included with the laptop and I simply copied it over from Windows because it is neat.
