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?

Entertainment & Media / Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

I loved these books as a kid and I saw this and it looks amazing! :D

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?

Super Smash Bros. / Will the Switch get its own unique Smash game?
« on: January 22, 2017, 07:51:04 PM »
I feel like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was a waste of a Switch Mario Kart just because the alternative would have been a brand new Mario Kart 9. I hope they don't do the same thing with Smash and just port over the Wii U version with 3DS content and a couple new characters. It's just not as hype as a full-on new title. Like, imagine if next E3 they showed Smash 4 gameplay with slightly better graphics. Would that be nearly as hype as when Smash 4 itself was first revealed? They need to blow us away again.

Forum Games / Photoshop Tennis
« on: January 22, 2017, 04:56:30 AM »
This game is about image editing (Photoshop isn't required; any image editor can be used)

Basically, a normal image is posted, and the next user adds something to it. It can be anything that doesn't break the rules. Then the next user adds something else to the image. Eventually it gets very crazy and hectic looking. Eventually a fresh image will be posted and the cycle continues.

An example of this game can be found here:

OK, I'll start with this image:

HelpDesk / Is there a way to remove a poll without removing the thread?
« on: January 21, 2017, 04:17:02 AM »
I have a thread I need to update but it has a now-irrelevant poll on it. I tried deleting all the options but it gave an error. I don't see a "delete poll" option. Am I missing something or is it something only a moderator can do?

I never click on "Help" in Photoshop, but sometimes (it used to be rare, but now it suddenly just happened twice within two days) I will try to do a random operation (seriously it's never the same thing, it's literally random.) What happens is I get like ten dialog boxes that suddenly appear on top of each other that say "There was an error initializing the Adobe Help application." The sheer number of these dialog boxes crashes the program ("Adobe Photoshop has stopped working and needs to close") and I lose most of my work.

I have searched Google for a solution but all I can find is a thread on Adobe's support forum where nobody could replicate the problem. Any ideas?

And then I can't close the window. Literally a pop-up says "THE PAGE AT HAHAHA.ADWARESITE.*bleep*YOU SAYS...


and the only way to close the window is to terminate the Chrome process, which also gets rid of everything I wanted to keep.

The new window was SUPPOSED to be a sign-in page for my email. But hell no, and you know what else? Nothing bad has installed in the last month according to Control Panel, and there are no bad extensions on my Chrome.

Why me? Why does this always happen to me? I don't usually download adware infested crap anyway so WHY is my computer such an adware magnet? The only programs I've downloaded this month are QuickTime and an update for my game capture software.

I do NOT want to use any *bleep*ing trial versions that tell me about adware but want me to pay to delete it. No protection software ever lasts. Lo and behold, I have redirects again.

Any suggestions?

HelpDesk / Having trouble with Mario Kart Wii custom music.
« on: April 18, 2015, 05:52:53 PM »
I'm trying to add a song that's not available on Brawlcustommusic. I only had an MP3 and WAV of it so I converted it to BRSTM using brawlbox.

Thing is, A) the song plays way too quiet in the game, even after I increased the file's volume by 4X twice, and B) it does not repeat. I say "repeat" because it's not a video game song so it doesn't have a looping point but rather an ending. I want it to start over after the ending.

I have tried setting it to loop, with the start and end points just at the start and end of the song. I've also tried patching Revo_kart.brsar with the BRSTM. Nothing works, I always have a silent race after the song ends. Same with the final lap version (which is sped up but sounds a bit distorted in addition to being quiet)

The song I am using is Chomp and Munch from The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue, and I'm testing it with Rainbow Road. I'm using WavePad Sound Editor to speed it up, and I also added reverb, think that could be the problem?

The Marioverse / Some odd textures found in Super Paper Mario's files.
« on: April 17, 2015, 10:45:04 PM »
I found these a little interesting and didn't think this topic was dumb enough for Mindless Junk so here we are.

For some reason there are random screenshots of the game in there, but the player isn't present in them and the backgrounds are transparent. Any idea how those got dumped, or if they are actually in the games files? Some of them are even in the flipped 3D mode. But they are really small and stretched oddly. There's about 3 or 4 of Fracktail in the desert, though with no background. A few of Flipside Tower's base (though oddly Merlon's house is not present, instead the fence just ends where the house would normally be)

I've been through these textures in the past and never noticed these particular ones. I dumped the textures directly from the game using Dolphin, and there are quite a few completely blank textures. But these "screenshots" intrigued me, since some of them appear to be the same location with the NPCs in different positions.

A few of these can be found here:

What is the point of having these? They aren't used in the game (obviously these actual locations aren't pre-rendered like that) and the fact that there are duplicates with only small differences (like O'Chunks battle images) and that some of them are missing textures (Bestovius's cloud, Merlon's house) makes me think it was just a Dolphin error when dumping the files. Is this common because I've never seen anything like it before.

HelpDesk / Premiere gives error when exporting video.
« on: April 06, 2015, 12:22:32 AM »
Spoiler: previous problem (click to show/hide)

I was able to finally delete that file described in the spoiler, only to run across another problem: Premiere won't export as an MP4 or AVI at all, immediately giving an "error compiling movie." Exporting as WMV gives a blank file.

Does this have anything to do with the fact that one of the videos I imported into this one had a few errors in it, and I had to sync the audio several times throughout?

Here's a gif of the corrupted part of the video:
 (somehow I was able to export that):
