Welcome to the first Kirby Air Ride tournament in the history of Mario Awards!  Here you'll find the rules and all necessary info on the tournament.  If you have any questions, please message me as soon as possible.  Now, let's get this thing started!  Signups are officially open!

Info
  • This is a time attack tournament.  All races take place exclusively within the Time Attack mode found in the Air Ride menu.
  • This tournament is entirely score-based; the exact scoring system has yet to be determined, but the higher you place against other racers, the higher your score.  There will be no eliminations, so even if you're not the best racer out there, you'll still have a shot at playing all nine rounds.
  • The tournament consists of nine rounds.  In each round, you will have a week to get and submit a time on a set track.  Resubmissions are allowed, but try to keep them to a minimum.  Photographic proof for all submissions is required; you may use a household camera to snap a photo of the screen if that is your only means of submitting a photo, but ensure that the time is perfectly readable.
  • All nine tracks will be used, played in a predetermined order.  The last of these, Nebula Belt, is unlockable and requires that you have raced over 100 total laps in Air Ride mode.  Please make sure that this track is available before the final round.
  • Signups will close Sunday, June 16, 11:59 PM EDT.  The first race will begin on the following day, June 17.

Rules
  • All races must take place in Time Attack mode on the set track for the round.  Times set in a different mode or track will not be permitted.
  • Photographic proof is required for all submissions.  No exceptions.  You may use any household camera to take the photo so long as your time is clearly visible.  You will also need access to an image sharing site such as Imgur.  Do not submit old times; only times made during the course of the round will be accepted.
  • All characters and vehicles are permitted.  You may switch between characters or vehicles at any time.  Obviously, you cannot use the four City Trial-exclusive vehicles as they are unavailable in the Time Attack mode, but there are no other restrictions on characters or vehicles.
  • Resubmissions are allowed, but try to keep them to a minimum.  I don't want my inbox flooded with several times from the same participant for any given round.  Try to only submit a time when you are sure you won't get a better time to submit.
  • Please try to submit a time for every round.  Even if it's not your best time, you are guaranteed at least one point just for submitting a time, even if you end up placing last.  You will not receive any points if you fail to submit a time, unless you message me before the end of a round with a valid excuse.
  • Glitches, hacks, cheats, or mods of any kind that affect gameplay are prohibited.

Video Games / E3 2019 Wish List

June 11, everyone.  It may be just me, but the eleven months since last E3 have gone by so fast.  But now that we know when the big day will come, I figured that we might as well start posting wish lists.  Here's mine:

Counting / Count until YFJ feels like posting the number zero
« on: April 25, 2019, 11:49:54 PM »
I think I made one of these in the distant past, but rather than digging it out from way back when, I figured I'd just make a new one.

The rules are simple.  Count until I post, after which you reset.  The only catch?  I tend to post in these kinds of things quite often, so prepare for a lot of count resets.

Anyway, blah, blah, blah, enough chit-chat.  Go ahead and start counting.

Wiki Collaborations / The problem of papers and babies
« on: April 23, 2019, 02:11:05 PM »
Currently, our baby articles (see Baby Mario for reference) cover all baby appearances of the character (including the Yoshi's Island games) and not just the ones in which they appear independently from their adult counterpart (such as Partners in Time and Mario Kart).  However, this is terribly inconsistent with our paper articles (see Paper Mario (character) for reference), which only covers the independent appearances of the character (such as Paper Jam) but not their info from the Paper Mario series.

I'm unsure exactly how to go about this, but one thing is certain: we can't just keep an inconsistency like this on our wiki.  I originally thought about just splitting off the info for the YI games into the main character article, while keeping the independent appearances seperate, but then I remembered Baby Bowser (who appears independently from Bowser in Island DS and New Island, but not in Island 1).  Going through with that plan would just make things seem a bit disorganized, because Baby Bowser would have his Island DS and New Island info, while Island 1 would be on the main Bowser article.

Another option would be to merge the Paper Mario series info into the Paper article, leaving a brief mention of them on the main article, but ultimately, that wouldn't be optimal either, as they don't appear independently in those games, unlike in Paper Jam.  Doing that would just make the main articles seem incomplete.

I understand that you might argue that it's fine the way it is, and while it's not a terrible inconsistency, it is enough to be bothersome, to say the least.  Any ideas on what to do with this would be appreciated.

The Marioverse / Partners in Time: The Point of No Return
« on: March 23, 2019, 05:03:48 PM »
I've almost beaten Partners in Time, and I've reached the last Save Album.  However, Stuffwell has warned me that if I save there, I will never be able to return to a previous section in the game, and he gave me the option to go back to my last save to finish up what I needed to.  So, what should I do with my final chance to revisit previous locations?  Besides stocking up on items and gear for the final battle, of course.

EDIT: Well, I'm playing the VC version, so I'll just make a restore point so I can still go back and do things later.  Still, if there's anything more I should check out in the previous areas, I'd appreciate some responses!

Video Games / Hardest bosses you've ever fought (spoilers)
« on: March 18, 2019, 07:53:30 PM »
We all know that boss fights are supposed to be challenging.  But some bosses...let's just say they go way overboard.  Some of those bosses are just too difficult to be fair--and sometimes to the extent that they aren't any fun.  That's what we'll focus on here.  Just post the most frustrating boss fights you've ever lost (or perhaps won, after millions of losses).

My picks:
1. Miracle Matter (Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards)
2. Void Termina [Soul Melter EX] (Kirby Star Allies)
3. Cackletta [2nd fight] (Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga)
4. King Dedede (Kirby Air Ride)
5. Petey Piranha [2nd fight] (Super Mario Sunshine)

Hey, YFJ here, gauging interest for what could be the first Kirby Air Ride tournament in the history of Mario Awards!  This isn't an official sign-up thread; I'm just seeing who would be interested, and if enough people could sign up to make this official.

This is a time attack tournament; all rounds should take place exclusively within the Time Attack mode in Air Ride.  This tournament is also score-based, meaning that you will earn points based on how you do relative to other players; in other words, no eliminations.  There will be a total of 9 rounds, one for each track in the game.  Each round will last 1 week; during that time, you must submit a time to me via PM with photographic proof.  There are no restrictions on characters or vehicles (although the Dragoon, Hydra, Flight Warp Star, and Compact Star cannot be used for obvious reasons).  No glitches, cheats, hacks, or mods that affect gameplay will be permitted.

The only prerequisite is that you must have unlocked the Nebula Belt track, which requires racing over 100 total laps in the Air Ride mode.  If you're interested in this but haven't yet done so, I recommend working towards that, as you will not be able to participate in the final round otherwise.  This doesn't take long, and likely won't be a problem for any potential participants.  The date has not been finalized yet, but it will likely take place sometime in June.

So if you're interested, post here.  I'm also open to any suggestions you might have.

EDIT: Signups are officially open!  Make sure you post there if you want to participate!

Fan Creations / YFJ's Crafty Creations (Game mods and more!)
« on: February 23, 2019, 02:50:42 AM »
Welcome to YFJ's Crafty Creations!  With my newfound interest in game modding, particularly Smash modding, I thought I might make a Fan Creations thread to call my own.  I'll post my various projects here, and give progress reports on said projects.  I may even release my modpacks on Google Drive if there's enough demand for it.  However, as game modding still takes time and isn't nearly as easy as it might seem at first, these are all relatively small-scale mods, so don't expect anything major.

Right now, I am working on a series of projects in Smash Wii U, which I call New Challengers Approaching!  The first new challenger?  Bandana Waddle Dee, whose presence in Smash is certainly long overdue.  Bandana Waddle Dee replaces Shadow Kirby as Kirby's eighth alt, and as such all of his moves are identical to Kirby's (although I recommend using custom moves to swap Inhale for Ice Breath to avoid glitchy graphics).  But I didn't stop there; that would have been boring, and it wouldn't make you feel like you're actually playing as a separate character.  At the time of writing, I have changed the character model, character name, Boxing Ring title, and voice clips (these were replaced with silence).

The one last thing I need to complete this modpack is a Bandana Waddle Dee nameplate, which I cannot find on the Internet nor create myself, so if someone could send me one that would be great.  I also haven't touched the Announcer clips at all, and I will likely replace them with silence to avoid any confusion with Kirby.  When all is said and done, I hope that Bandana Waddle Dee will be near-indistinguishable from official costume swaps like Alph and the Koopalings.

I had a progress video that I was going to upload to YouTube and post here, but the Miiverse shutdown also prevents video sharing, so oh well.  Hopefully I'll find a patch to this game that circumvents that.  But what do you think of it so far?  Thoughts?

HelpDesk / Easiest, risk-free way to mod a Wii U?
« on: February 17, 2019, 07:49:18 PM »
So a couple weeks ago, I modded my Wii, and I'm looking to do the same to my Wii U.  I know that I could easily mod the virtual Wii Menu in the same way I did to my Wii, but the Wii U menu is another story.  I'm seeing that modding the Wii U menu requires a DS VC game (which I don't have) and could result in console bricking (which I really don't want to do).  Any other, non-risky way to hack the Wii U menu?  Any help is appreciated.

General Discussion / Which NIWA wikis do you edit?
« on: January 29, 2019, 01:11:47 AM »
I thought this thread would best fit here as opposed to another board, even though this isn't directly related to the Super Mario Wiki.  Which of the NIWA wikis are you a registered user on and have contributed at least one edit to?

For me, it's these:
-WiKirby (active)
-Super Mario Wiki (mostly inactive)
-Nintendo Wiki (inactive)

Handheld Gaming / Is the 2DS a viable replacement to the 3DS XL?
« on: January 18, 2019, 03:48:59 PM »
My 3DS has been broken for quite some time now, and ever since then I've been interested in getting a 2DS due to its cheap price (official refurbished for $60 USD) and the extra durability (the right hinge became the downfall of my old XL model, but that's missing here)  But I've heard it's a serious downgrade to other 3DS models, and is even outright uncomfortable.  I would kinda miss 3D since that was a pretty neat part of the system, and I've also heard that the screens are smaller and the sound quality is inferior.  I can live with smaller screens and lower sound quality (I have earbuds anyway).  And while 3D is definitely something I'd miss (especially when playing games like 3D Land), I suppose I can live without it if necessary.

So should I grab a standard 2DS for $60 but lose 3D and big screens, or pay extra for one of the "new" models with the possibility of my right hinge crumpling again?

Video Games / Will a 3DS system transfer overwrite pre-installed games?
« on: January 06, 2019, 05:25:04 PM »
So I have plans to buy that Mario Maker 2DS since my old NSMB2 XL broke.  But it says the game is pre-installed rather than coming with a download code.  If I were to do a system transfer to it, would Mario Maker be overwritten?  And if so, will I be able to redownload it?  Thanks!

The Marioverse / Mario 64 or Mario 64 DS?
« on: December 04, 2018, 09:44:02 PM »
So I'm looking to get Mario 64, but I'm not sure which version to get.  The original has better controls, yet the remake is portable and has much more content (including :yoshi:).  I don't think the controls of the remake would bother me too much, but given its classic status I'd like to try the original version and see how 3D Mario evolved from there.  I'd like to try both eventually but don't know which to try first.  I would be playing the original on my Wii U, and the remake on my 3DS.  I've essentially decided not to play the remake on my Wii U, despite that being cheaper than a physical DS cart.  As such, I would have to pay a little more to play the remake.

Whatever version I get, I'll be happy just to have the game.  But if anyone on these forums happens to have a bone to pick with Mario 64, I included an option in the poll just for you. :wario:
