  • does anyone know how I can get my hands on the old Android emoji's, the ones they've apparently gotten rid of in favor of some more universal (read: bland) updates? I've got some Lo-Res JPEG's on my PC already, but I want HQ copies if I can get them. These loser journalist sites are somehow able to get them, so how do I do that?

    I suppose I could try to basically put in each and every one of them into a Memo on my phone, then take a screencap. ...Assuming said phone hasn't been "updated" already.

    Emojipedia might have what you want. They show how emoji look on different devices as well as showing older versions of emojis from previous builds.
    One of my favorite le monke moments of the gaming industry was when Rare was showing off their working prototype for Donkey Kong Country, and the executives went over and checked to make sure they weren't cheating by having a hidden IBM computer behind the scenes running SAWCH STUHNNING AWNBELIEVABLE GREAPHICS

    Yeah, Donkey Kong Country's graphics were amazing, especially for the time.
    I wonder where that mini-trope of Volcano music using Xylophones comes from. Not even Marimbas (because obviously that's due to Hawaii being a thing), but xylophones specifically. I've heard this phenomenon from two completely unrelated games, and I'm sure they're not the only ones that do this.

    downtown nashville and new york city are technically both metropolii, but you don't exactly see anyone saying HMM... these are at all alike beyond face value

    not really serious btw i'm just taking the piss
    plus, i dinnae think you're quite as likely to get mauled by a jaguar while visiting the Caribbean
    What the hell is this "Mood" thing doing beneath my name on thread posts all of a sudden
    This isn't 2011-era deviantArt
    edit: oh, thank god-- at least they're not distracting-ass GIFs anymore.
    You know-- it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if at least one of the songs from Wario Land: Shake It! was inspired by Duran Duran. In particular Electric Barbarella feels like it could work as the Exploration theme for that one futuristic level.

    Given Tomoya Tomita took inspiration from pop culture and other media when composing the soundtrack for Shake It, that wouldn't be too unsurprising.

    Well, one thing is for sure, Wario Land: Shake It! has one of the best video game soundtracks ever! ¡En serio!

    Duran Duran indeed sounds a bit Wario Land-like. Either that, or Wario Land sounds a bit Duran Duran-like at times.
    One of my favorite little things you see in video games is when the terminology is very obviously just a real-life English word with some bits sawed off or changed to a different letter. Metroid is the prime example, here. Crateria = Criteria, Varia = Variant/Variable (in reference to its all-purpose environmental capability), and like, Norfair is literally just "Not fair" but someone's finger was a couple millimeters too far left of the T key.

    No, that pun actually wasn't done on purpose-- the fact that it was coincidental is the reason I'm keeping it in.
    i'm sure some of you gyablins will appreciate this song. i honestly wonder how close my envisioned gato is to the real one, if at all
    EarthBound soundfont life hack: you can make the Taiko Drum preset sound like it's coming from somewhere else in the room by increasing the Attack time.
    Dude, this assignment I've been working on has been such a slog that my ADD's been making me feel like I have Lyme's Disease for the past three days.

    I discovered that I accidentally recreated that screeching sound from Fist of the North Star using Subtractor in Reason. .....wait a minute, since I have control over its pitch as well, and as such can remake the "KEOWAA" from Dragon Ball, does that mean I've essentially unlocked The 80's Action Anime Sound Effect
    So I came across this:

    (Don't ask how; long story.)
    It made me think: have you ever used a Yoshi's Island soundfont for one of your covers? The soundfont of that game is very suitable for making covers.

    I used the Baby Bowser electric guitar in this one for the solo, but besides that I haven't made anything that uses it in that context.

    okay, so i was making one just now, and as a side effect I discovered that one of DooM Snes's violin is the Yoshi's Island recorder but with Modulation, altered Delay and Sustain settings, and Mega Man X Reverb
    I accidentally discovered how that "U'weh, weh, weh, weh" sound (just before the bats show up) at the start of the original Scooby-Doo intro works. It's a really heavy Wah-Wah-- I don't know the exact settings, other than my guess that it uses high resonance, low depth, and an LFO frequency of about 3.4Hz-- but that's definitely one of if not the effects being utilized there, surely.

    "low-frequency oscillator", if I recall. It's kind of hard to nail, but despite the name being accurate to what it is literally, it's not really accurate to how it works in practice. like, when a value's been altered to something besides the default, the LFO is what did that. Pitch-bend, Modulation, Phaser, all that shit, it's all LFO. It's hard to explain, but basically any time you're inserting Edit Events for any fuckin' thing that's technically an LFO. I don't know, man, it's hard to explain. I know a fuckton about LFO, what it do and how through experience, but I've never had to think about it in terms of actual words.

    Hmm, when I read ''frequency of about 3.4 Hz'', I almost automatically thought LFO was the modulation frequency of FM-based vibrato, or something closely related to it.

    well, that's the thing. It can be if you so desire. Loik I was sayin', LFO's a very flexible sort of thing.
    So this guy hummed this five note pattern in my Film Class, and he said that was the Citizen Kane main theme, and then after transcribing it, I realized that the section of "Pokey's House" that utilizes 3/4 time is totally that exact motif but raised by a minor third.
