Entertainment & Media / Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

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

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?

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:

HelpDesk / How do I get decent audio from my headset?
« on: April 03, 2015, 02:44:35 AM »
It's a Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 gaming headset. I'm using it to record my commentary on my new Super Paper Mario LP, but every time I yell (like, I'm trying to sound enthusiastic or really dramatic) it sometimes seems to distort the sound. For example, I just recorded the game show in the bathroom and where the guy says "It's the 66th annual "That's my Merlee" show" it sounds like "DLT's ML MLLLL SHLL" on some syllables.

I'm using Windows 8's sound recorder to record this. I tried Audacity but I don't really want to mess with a whole editing interface when just recording something. It overwhelms me, don't ask why.

Can anyone recommend a good free recording software that is simple like the Windows one but won't distort loud audio?

Fan Creations / FTG's let's plays
« on: April 02, 2015, 12:29:57 PM »

So I started let's plays. I originally posted my Super Paper Mario LP here, but it is finished now and I have two more completed LPs, though I am having trouble finding the motivation to continue my current one (Bowser's Inside Story)

But anyway here is all my projects, completed or not:
Spoiler: Super Paper Mario (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Paper Mario TTYD (click to show/hide)

I had planned to do SMRPG blind after Spongebob, but when I started recording I found out I sucked hard at that game so I decided against it.

HelpDesk / Premiere- exporting with fourcc code?
« on: March 28, 2015, 03:29:14 PM »
I'm trying to make a 3D video for use on a Nintendo 3DS.

I have the left and right videos to use, but I can't put them into Stereo Movie Maker because it says it "doesn't have fourcc code."

What does this mean? Google isn't helping much, unfortunately. I'm only finding stuff on how to change the fourcc code that's already there. Not to add it if it's not there.

Is there a way to export this stuff in Adobe Premiere Pro with the correct settings to put them into Stereo Movie Maker?

(I tried other ways to make 3D video, and putting those into StereoMovieMaker results in half the video being cropped out somehow)

HelpDesk / 3DSmax help
« on: March 26, 2015, 11:45:54 AM »
I want to start uploading some trophy models from Smash Wii U to Models Resource. I decided to start with something simple like Count Bleck, who only has one texture.

But the model doesn't seem to be shaped like him at all... instead it's just a flat square. Adding the texture turns it into a square with a picture of Count Bleck on it. Rendering keeps the square around him. Is there a way to get rid of that? I'm afraid to export that and upload it in this state.

Some of you have probably already seen this video, but I want to have a thread where I can post it and any future uploads of that nature here. So here is what I've done so far:

Spoiler: Top 5 Mario RPGs (click to show/hide)

Future plans (possibly):

-Top 5 Worst Mario games (out of those I played, which doesn't include the notoriously bad ones)

-Top 5 Final Bosses in Mario games

-Top 5 Mario Villians

Other projects:

-Let's Play Super Paper Mario (currently have about 6 episodes recorded and 3 of them are ready to publish)

I'll go ahead and put up a poll to see what people want to see next. I may or may not follow it, but I'd like to know what you guys want anyway.

HelpDesk / Any way to uninstall a Premiere Pro update?
« on: March 16, 2015, 01:04:12 PM »
I've been using this program since 2013 to make my YouTube videos. All of a sudden it stopped working and just hung on startup every time.

So I went to Adobe's website and downloaded an update... but after installing the dang thing wants me to "activate a trial."

Obviously not what I want, so is there a way to uninstall the update? I noticed that there was no file included that said "uninstall..."

Video Games / The SpongeBob Video Games Thread
« on: March 15, 2015, 09:38:12 PM »
So you've seen the show, and it's been bashed to hell and back as of late. But what about the games? I grew up with multiple SpongeBob games on the GBA (those being SuperSponge, Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, Battle for Bikini Bottom, and the Movie game)

Haven't played too many recent entries though. Are they any good? From what I've seen of the console games they look nothing like what I'm used to. Even though I'm primarily a Nintendo gamer I may grab a PS1 just to play that version of SuperSponge and experience my first video game in a new way.

Here's my ranking of them, from my best memories:

SuperSponge=Revenge of the Flying Dutchman>Battle for Bikini Bottom=The SpongeBob Movie

Should really dig out my GBA or DS and play them again.

I also played the GBC game Legend of the Lost Spatula but never got very far in it.
