  • Did we ever get an explanation for why Shokora's closeup sprite and far-shot sprite had two different color schemes?
    Like, you could argue the dress was purple-ish and for the hair they went on SNES rules but I mean it's not like they wouldn't have been able to use the same palette as the closeup, since it and the head are the same sprite and the dress is closer to a rosy shade in the closeup anyway. Not to mention the crown's jewelry is green instead of aquamarine, for some reason. ...So-- why the difference in hue? :shokorashrug:

    Update: apparently, it's because it looks Not All That Good

    Oh hey, apparently without GIMP's anti-saturation nonsense, it actually doesn't look too terrible. Sweet
    What is that ''it'' your eyes supposedly have?

    le ad said:
    "IT". . . that subtle something which attracts others . . . usually lies in the eyes.
    You know how "eyes are the window to the soul", right. Basically the ad was saying you could make your eyes look like that of someone who oozed charisma. The thing is, though, they're going to radiate that with their entire being, because they actually have "IT". Yer fuckin' eyeballs ain't going to fool anyone for long, and certainly not anyone who really knows you.

    In other words, to give you an idea, "IT" is whatever the fuck it is about a woman that makes the average bloke go "god damn, there's just somethin' about her man". Otherwise known as charisma (and it's not actually gender-specific, obviously, but by-and-large the "IT" campaign was female-based). As you can see from the shitty ad, the whole consumer racket corrupted the idea by planting this underlying idea that "IT" was specifically the kind that when exuded makes people want to "be with you" (read: fuck you). This is because, obviously, despite how prim and proper people were even as recently as the 1950's, the general consuming public is composed of vulgar fucks that wanna fuck, and probably always will be. "Sex sells". And also people have always fallen for stupid advertising campaigns which promise to land you a date in spite of your boring personality. History shows again and again how nature ones up the folly of men.

    Whoa, there's more about that than I thought.
    endorse in Murine eye drops to make your eyes look less dull and lifeless, then you'll finally trick people into thinking you aren't a milquetoast cow as we here at Murine know you to be. even after they spend time with you they'll be none the wiser. also we do miracles

    Note: the notation for the drums is all wrong, and the panning/preset choices for some of the instruments are wrong as well, but the actual sequence data is exactly the same. If I find one that's literally identical I'll update this post, but for the moment this is as good as I can get, so I'll continue to believe that the game's creator did some mixing himself to make it work for GS until I do.
    List of men who make yellow work:
    Wario
    Pac-Man
    Greg Wiggle
    end of list

    When Christmastime comes around I do rather enjoy listening to Here Come the Reindeer and Jimmy the Elf.

    The hero from DQ8 looked nice in yellow.

    Aika from skies of Arcadia looked good, too.

    excuse me, I said men

    As for DQ8's pirate boi, ehhhhh I guess, but it seems to me like yellow isn't the main focus color there. It looks to me like an equal balance between the blue and yellow was intended. They're both primary colors, and while they do complement each other, they still more-or-less cancel each other out as far as if one of them was the main color or not because of it. Symbolizing how the character is Joe Everyman, his clothes are a sort of variety pack of the Big Four (which is, as we all know, the four Uno colors)
    To elaborate on my own choices,
    Greg's color is yellow because his pants are black;
    Pac-Man's is yellow because, while red is also a primary color, it's a warm color, and that coupled with the orange gloves leads to a gradient sort of vibe;
    Wario's is yellow because it's complemented by three cool colors, and the rather eye-drawing hat's very obviously majorly yellow.
    Do you think it's possible to make a good remix/waahrangement/whatever you call it out of this classic dance track by Wariofying it? (Basically replacing the beeps with Wah's and using a Wario Land sound for the countermelody.) I think I'd be hilarious.

    Hardly hilarious; somewhat amusing, though. It might be fun, though. We'll see...

    Dunno, I have seen pretty funny remixes of this song using samples. But you're right, let's see...
    I just discovered that Crash Bandicoot's Acoustic Piano preset uses a sample which is eerily similar to Wario Land 4's Honky-Tonk once you add an octave to a given note, and especially when you turn Modulation to max to simulate WL4's sample looping really early.
    Do you know if there's a standard name for that electric piano-like sound that you can hear in so many 80's ballads? (You know, that sound that's also used for the melody of SM64's Dire Dire Docks.)

    I'm not sure! I think it might be a Wulitzer EP, but it's been a long time since I've used that preset. I'll have to check.
    Nope, not that. I guess it really is a Rhodes after all.

    But yeah, uhhh, I think it's a Rhodes electric piano, but with a Chorus effect, an extended Release time, and a slight Attack value (meaning the part where it reaches max volume is delayed a tiny bit, in this case; in other words, a really quick fade-in, if you didn't know how Attack works). It's also worth noting that I'm pretty sure there's more than one kind of Rhodes, or at least more than one setting for its timbre-- one of them's bound to be the right sound. Other than that I don't know. That sounds right to me, though, so take it for what you will. Congratulations on (presumably) making it out of hospice, btw!

    Ah, I see. It's a bit more complicated than I thought, as I didn't expect it to be a sound that is different on each keyboard brand/model.


    And yes, I'm out of hospital. For over a week now, and I feel much better.

    Well, I don't know, I've never actually seen a Rhodes EP in real life, I've only got what my plethora of different soundfont patches tell me. As far as I know, the Rhodes Electric Piano is just an electric piano with different settings of fancy to choose from.
    If you could have one of them voice act for you, would you rather have Lorenzo Music or Sterling Holloway

    this is actually a really fucking difficult decision
    @CM30 So, what's the point of HIGNFY? Is it supposed to be a sort-of "here's the latest headline, which we will riff off of, with a bit of a game show on the side" type of deal?

    HIGNFY? Have I missed something?

    Oh, Have I Got News For You?
    Pretty much. It's quite funny.
    When it's zoomed out like this my current PFP looks like an adorable little horned Fraggle+Wild Thing hybrid.
