HelpDesk / Elgato + OBS, quality issue
« on: October 26, 2017, 06:11:16 PM »
I'm trying to set up OBS to record from my Elgato HD60 capture device. Testing on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and it seems no matter what settings I use (seemed like bitrate was the issue but i thought that only mattered if you were streaming) I always get some nasty JPEG artifacts, particularly when there's lots of motion.

This is the best quality I've gotten in 1080p 30fps so far. 60fps just makes the video constantly freeze and stutter. I'm looking at my TV screen now and everything looks so fluid and perfect, any way I can get that quality or at least closer to it, with my Elgato + OBS?

HelpDesk / Wajam, won't stay gone
« on: October 05, 2017, 04:23:25 PM »
Every time I reboot my computer, my Google searches redirect into Yahoo searches. Sometimes it says Wajam instead of Yahoo. I've found the exact process that causes this, and when I end that process, the issue goes away. So I found where in program files it was (a folder named some complete nonsense like arhgf74rw4y984hndsfk) and just deleted that folder and everything in it, then wiped the recycle bin. After that, problem solved... until next reboot. Then the problem is back and yes, the junk folder exists again somehow. I could just keep deleting it but how does it manage to come back from nonexistence? I remember doing a Malwarebyte scan the first time this happened and it didn't seem to find the culprit.

HelpDesk / 3DS Max issue
« on: September 04, 2017, 01:30:31 AM »
I'm fiddling around with a character model in 3DS Max and one object is ever-so-slightly misaligned. But every time I move it back into position, it snaps back to the initial position when I deselect it. Google gives me all sorts of issues that aren't this one. Could someone tell me what might be causing this and how to fix it? Thanks.

I just bought a digital issue of this magazine and holy crap, it has so much artwork and comics and stuff that makes me a bit doubtful if this is official, but it IS the successor to Nintendo Power right? Do they have affiliation with Nintendo or is all that stuff closer to fan art?

HelpDesk / Any way to search the Internet by audio upload?
« on: July 16, 2017, 10:47:05 PM »
I have audio that I have been searching for years for the matching video, but have not found it. Is there a search engine that allows me to upload this audio file and have it pull up all existing videos (YouTube or not) with said audio? Google is not really helping or at least, the results I get don't seem like what I want.

In this thread I will be posting ideas for a crossover between Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario, similar to Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam but with more of a focus on combining elements from both series (particularly the earlier Paper Mario titles before Sticker Star) and adapting them into a modern Mario & Luigi format. Feel free to contribute your own ideas :)

*As a personal challenge (and since most of you probably already know my stance on this), I will not be dwelling on story and character related topics. Instead I'll discuss potential gameplay combinations not seen in Paper Jam.*

So, to start things off, the general battle system would adapt more mechanics from the first two Paper Mario games into the base Mario & Luigi system.

  • Paper Mario now acts as a partner to Mario and Luigi. Instead of BP, he has FP, which is on a much lower scale than Bros. Points. Likewise, Paper Mario's HP is on a lower scale and, along with FP, are two (of a total 3) stats to choose in level ups for him. They will always increase by 5 when chosen. His Defense is by default much higher than the Bros. as well, so his damage is more akin to how it is in the first two Paper Mario games.

  • Due to Paper Mario now acting as a partner, he may be swapped out with a set of other partners. These are Paper Luigi and Paper Peach. For simplicity's sake, they share EXP and level-ups however their HP and FP can be at different levels (out of max, which will be the same) depending on how they're used.

  • Items now include "Paper Items" which can only be used by Paper characters, much like Bowser's Drumsticks in Bowser's Inside Story. Paper Items include items such as Thunder Rage, Life Shroom, Shroom Shake, Shooting Star, and more.

  • Badges return for Mario and Luigi, but are also a bit different for the Paper characters as well. Paper Badges require BDP*, a new stat exclusive to the Paper characters. It can also be chosen on levels and always increases by 3. This stat works like in the first two Paper Mario games, and the badges work similarly as well, though some have the added effect of providing the Paper characters with their own meter on the bottom screen that fills up vertically in between Mario's and Luigi's badge meters. The effects are more powerful if a full Trio Badge Meter is activated, and extend to the active Paper character while a Bros. badge meter only affects the Bros.

  • As mentioned above, Paper Mario can be swapped with Paper Luigi and Paper Peach. Here are some differences between how they play:

    • Paper Mario has the highest Attack Power of the partners and his Hammer defense lasts longer since instead of a simple swing, he performs the Super/Ultra Hammer maneuver from TTYD.
       His jump defense, however, is normal. His Emergency Block is replaced with a Superguard if timed properly. Along with standard jump and hammer attacks (using the Paper Mario action commands), he also works the best with offensive badge abilities such as Quake Hammer, Power Smash, Power Bounce, etc. and can naturally use Ground Pound as his standard FP-costing move.

    • Paper Luigi has the highest Speed and his Jump defense lasts longer but takes slightly longer to initiate. He performs his Super Jump from SPM (which Mario used in TTYD as well). His hammer defense is normal. He also has the usual jump and hammer attacks, his default FP costing move is Super/Spring Jump, which works like it did for Mario in TTYD, watch the shadow.

    • Paper Peach has the highest Defense, and she does not have Jump or Hammer defense. Instead, she always defends by hiding under her Parasol, always negating all damage but it must be timed right since it only lasts so long, much like Bowser's Shell defense in BIS. Her Attack Power is by far the weakest and her strongest moves are oriented at healing the Bros at the cost of FP. She does not use a hammer so Hammer badges are useless on her. Some of her moves are based on partner abilities in the first 2 PM games.

*The D is present to set this stat apart from Bros. Points.

This is a rough concept, constructive criticism is appreciated!  ;D

HelpDesk / Adobe Premiere blue screen of death.
« on: June 08, 2017, 07:27:32 PM »
My Adobe Premiere program on this computer has a seemingly random chance of crashing the computer, usually when importing a file (which can easily work the next time I try it). I haven't seen this happen recently, but that's because I've rarely even used the program out of fear since it was happening when the computer was new. It's a Windows 10 system and I'm pretty sure it was the latest version of Premiere when I got it (which was iirc early-2016)

For all I know, the recent (forced) update could've fixed the problem but I'm hesitant to risk it. The blue screen would give the error Video_tdr_failure if that helps.

Pretty sure there is only one on my user page, not counting the signature image. I know I've had more in the past but I don't know an easy way to find them to either use them or have them deleted. I think a few went unused when I removed the userbox tower from my page. But is there a place to like, see a list of my personal images?

HelpDesk / Windows Movie Maker help
« on: May 02, 2017, 11:48:55 PM »
yeah i know how that sounds, Windows Movie Maker is known to suck ass but all I'm trying to do is make a single picture with a song playing in the background. I can't figure out how to make the picture last longer than 10 seconds, despite the song being over a minute. It just abruptly ends the video after 10 seconds. Playing with the duration the max I can set is 10 seconds.

i'm not using Premiere for this because it has a random tendency to blue screen this computer, and my laptop is literal *bleep* right now. Surely Movie Maker didn't get worse over the years and removed basic features that I remember using when first starting out on YouTube? Anyway I could use some help :)

HelpDesk / Forced update, thought I had that disabled
« on: April 26, 2017, 12:45:13 PM »
Got up this morning. Instead of my computer being the way I left it, it was on the home screen. Apparently "We've updated your PC" and there was a longass wait before I could do anything. Everything I had open was now gone because Windows decided to ignore the fact that I had it set to only update when I tell it to. Or so I thought, IIRC my settings have been preventing automatic updates ever since I got this thing, what changed I have no idea but I'd really like to know how I can make 100% sure this bull*bleep* doesn't happen again.

Handheld Gaming / RPG Maker Fes

This actually looks interesting, but only if you can import sprites and music like the PC versions. If it's just stock characters and music I'll probably pass.

Off-subject Discussion / What are you afraid of?
« on: April 10, 2017, 09:49:18 PM »
I remember a thread like this in 2015, but that was 2 years ago so I'd say a new thread is in order.

I'm afraid of bugs (especially bees and wasps), mold, death, open heights, fire, and suspicious strangers who ask for money or a cigarette. Also afraid of not being successful and laziness taking over my life even further than it already has.

Also, I saw this in the old thread:

-being banned, particularly from this forum (mainly because the two times it happened my life became 100% more boring)
in hindsight this is actually hilariously ironic.

I had previously noticed this in Userpedia, but it seems to be happening on Super Mario Wiki as well, here's an example from Toadsworth:

The image from Bowser's Inside Story appears below the Dream Team section, next to the Thousand Year Door section. I checked the page's coding and it seems to be correctly placed in the BIS section yet it is down there for some reason. Just thought I'd bring attention to this as I have no idea what could be causing it.

HelpDesk / My Windows 10 clock is acting weird.
« on: April 04, 2017, 09:59:20 AM »
Yesterday when I woke up, the clock on my Windows 10 desktop was an hour ahead of all other clocks. I tried recalculating the time but it continued insisting that that time was correct. It was seemingly fixed when I unchecked "adjust for daylight saving time automatically." But now this morning the clock was one hour behind. I had to recheck that option to get the correct time again. Anyone have any idea why it can't make up its mind what time it wants to display?

What do you think?

The Marioverse / Paper Mario for Switch?
« on: March 04, 2017, 10:28:29 PM »
Well the Wii U eventually pulled through and had a Paper Mario release even if it wasn't exactly the return to form most wanted. But still, the trend of a Paper Mario for every console since the 64 continues. So that means the Switch will likely have a Paper Mario installment as well. This was further implied by Kensuke Tanabe in the Game Informer interview where he mentioned a desire to make a Paper Mario game with a new system.

Regardless of what we officially know now, I'm 99% sure this series will see an installment on Switch. I'm also (unfortunately) 90% sure it will keep the same bull*bleep* character restrictions placed on the last 2 games, thanks to Tanabe's comments in the above-linked interview.

I don't have high expectations for the Switch Paper Mario, though I am hopeful that one day either Tanabe will realize that obliviously following Miyamoto's instructions is hurting the series (and it's not disrespectful to politely say "no"), or a new producer will come in who is passionate about the older games and understands the fanbase.

Anyways. What are your ideas for a Switch Paper Mario? What new ideas do you think would take the series in a turn for the better?

The Marioverse / Which of these companions in the RPGs is your favorite?
« on: February 12, 2017, 07:30:16 PM »
Which companions do you like the most? (I didn't include the partners or other Pixls because this is more for the characters who are more involved in the plot of the game and are always present in most cutscenes)

My favorites are Tippi, Dreambert and Huey. I like Tippi's backstory, Dreambert's dialect and personality, and Huey's personality and heroic sacrifice.

HelpDesk / Any way to disable my ringtone starting quietly?
« on: February 08, 2017, 10:40:54 PM »
A few minutes ago I found out that two potentially important calls had been made to me while I was sleeping earlier, which I did not hear. I'm fairly certain I would've heard them if my phone had rang normally, but instead it always starts off extremely quietly, then eventually gets louder (albeit gradually, so it usually doesn't wake me up)

I had this problem on my old phone, but it was fixed by an app called "Disable Increasing Ring." However this app seems to be completely useless on the new phone-- it doesn't do a dang thing. I've gone into every settings menu I can find, but there is no option to have a normal ringtone.

The phone is a Motorola Moto Z Force btw. I'm at a loss. Google only provides that app and threads that give that app as a solution. Any chance anyone here would know what to do?

HelpDesk / My phone is infinitely restarting.
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:33:10 AM »
It started last night when I turned my screen on. It threw about five error message saying "Unfortunately x has stopped" which stacked on top of each other and I had to say "OK" on all of them. Once that was done, my phone reverted to the "Samsung" screen that displays when it is first booting up. From there, it just kept booting up and staying on for about a minute before rebooting again. I removed the battery for a while, then put the battery back in but didn't turn the phone back on until this morning. It did the same thing.

Note that removing the battery worked the last 2 times this happened. I think it might have something to do with my phone being full. But pretty much all I have on there is my music, which gets added to every so often and I don't want to lose any of it. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S4. I don't have a home phone so I pretty much need this for anyone who needs to contact me. Any ideas?
