Happy April Fools!

That's right! Anything that happened yesterday was obviously April Fools... but today was an extension of that joke! I never really did "destroy" the forums, or "hack" into the server... that never really happened. I sure put up a convincing show, didn't I!

Special thanks goes to Atrius and Overlord Kain for working with me to make such a hilarious April Fools joke! Especially Atrius, for working with me to create such a convincing "late" April Fools joke!

You maybe were too surprised to notice, but when I supposedly "hacked into the forum" and "destroyed the website", I was really giving all "banned" members 5 coins for participating, as well as any member that changed their avatar to a Slowpoke-related thing 3 coins.

And if you still think that we were serious, just ask Atrius. We worked on this while we went along, and I used the account "goldensunmaster97" to communicate with him while my other account was "perma-banned". I was laughing so hard my cheeks started to hurt after a while!

I guess I really do live up to my name, hmm? Long live the balance between Luna and Sol!

Hmm.. I did question to myself how you be able to even do that if Atrius ALREADY demoted you... (I was surprised he didn't remove your admin powers for real.)

And I definitely did notice my increase in coins. (of 3, but I thought it was strange... )

I also had the strange suspicion that Kain using other accts. that someone else might be doing the same thing at the same time as well.. but I never gathered that it was goldensunmaster97.

[7:28:42 PM] Salanewt: An added bonus is that Isaac and co. were trying to stop Saturos and co. because their beliefs state that Mt. Muffin should remain a virgin.

Pretending to be a real-life slowpoke all day was actually quite difficult, mind you. I had to resist the urge to use punctuation.

By the way, what I actually did was I put the forum in Maintenance Mode, then I just copy pasted the css sheet to a txt file, then deleted it. That was me "destroying" the forums. haha.

Could have made a new user group with admin powers but it looks like a regular user.  I'm sad I was away for most of the show however.

Atrius and Charon:

Actually, he said that what he did was he changed the forum's code so that regardless of my class, I would have Administrative powers no matter what. He changed it back though, for your information. ;)

True, I really did demote her to being just a regular user, but I also added a hack to the forum's code that still let her use Admin powers.

Yup, and thanks to that, I was able to "pretend" to hack back into the server and change my profile back to administrator and wreak havoc!

Thanks a lot, Atrius! Best April Fools joke ever xD

Today at 08:38:45 AM
Fox: The other theory is it could be coming from Mt. Aleph somehow. Umm..?
Today at 08:36:28 AM
Fox: I not really sure... but if it is appearing right there like that... it almost seems like something targetted... but maybe it could be the presence of artifacts that are high in psynergy.... and maybe one of those was in Isaac's cabin.... (High concentrations of psynergy causes vortexes?)
Today at 08:28:53 AM
Fox: One of the vortexes in a town destroys the bridge... and it looks like the vortex at the end could have destroyed the house (OR maybe have some indirect connection/dunno.), and will probably destroy the bridge the PCs are on as well. :P Umm... 
Today at 08:24:53 AM
Fox: at least* Don't they* have*
Today at 08:24:03 AM
Fox: From what I read. (Or atl et least my interpretation/memory of what I read.) ... Don't think only really appear every 10 years...?  And hve some connection to the mourning moon (Probably what the vortex is at the end.)
Yesterday at 11:46:04 PM
Lord Squirtle: I'm not even sure how that could be advanced unless there is a good reason why they stop showing up.
Yesterday at 11:45:13 PM
Lord Squirtle: I think the vortex stuff basically ends maybe 1/4 into the game, at least until the post-credits scene.
Yesterday at 08:47:52 PM
Fox: (That's assuming we make a remake, and take out any contradictions or altar them a bit to fit in.) ... However, here's the thing... the Vortexes were corrupted, so the solution didn't quite work out. (And there might have been others trying to do the same thing.)
Yesterday at 08:43:49 PM
Fox: Anyway... I don't know much about Dark Dawn... but if I was to advanced the story on the Psynergy Vortexes, I would say that Felix was behind it. - It's like in GS1/GS2... How we were at first led to believe the lighting of lighthouses needed to be stopped... and that flips in GS2.... so I'm going to guess the vortexes is similar.
Yesterday at 08:36:22 PM
Fox: If you search "gstla" (even shorter) ... Rom sites are appearing on page 2. .... Hm...
Yesterday at 08:24:47 PM
Fox: And the main reason I thought that was semi-intersting... because it's basically advertising... "Hey you're looking up this game?" "Well, did you know you could emulate it?" ... to those very few (mostly children) who don't already know. 
Yesterday at 08:22:54 PM
Fox: @ratings spot = I mean of the same rom site.
Yesterday at 08:22:00 PM
Foxno ... I need advanced error checking on my English... it's not enough to have error checking in programming. :P
Yesterday at 08:19:35 PM
Fox: Who knew... that a simple search like "Golden Sun 2" (With [bno[/b] text for "rom" or "download"/etc.)  will have a link to a rom site on the first results page... not to mention having a ratings spot in the right side-bar.
May 24, 2017, 06:49:14 PM
Lord Squirtle: I guess I'll make a topic for the GBA concept room in Dark Dawn soon.
May 24, 2017, 04:27:21 PM
Fox: Yep ... There are many libraries for many languages... Python, etc... And then there are things like  the Google apis - e.g. http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=(whatever you want to search for)
May 24, 2017, 07:46:43 AM
Luna_blade: I can see how XML/JSON are a thing these days.
May 23, 2017, 04:52:18 PM
Fox: Easier in the idea that I can reduce required external stuff where the source code isn't available/modifyable (Well, there is overrides in some cases, but still.) ; So it's possible the only "Events" I would require are those of the Form.... (Mouse Events, Keyboard Events, Paint Events, Etc. when needed.)
May 23, 2017, 04:42:14 PM
Fox: Anyway... I know I am using built-in controls in my current editor, but it is not out-of-the-question that I might just go and make my own custom controls... so that it is actually easier for me (But that'd take a lot of work.)  I'm thinking about one large bitmap object, and just drawing them on it. Problem is, I'm afraid it might not be efficient enough.  So I haven't decided about doing it.)
May 23, 2017, 04:33:28 PM
Fox: @XML = If I recall, I believe Visual Studio uses it for Settings Variables that remain even after you close the program. (e.g. There's one variable I have in my program that I call "LastRom" to make it easier to get back into the program.)
