    This forum is for any and all theories you have about Cave Story, no matter how insane or far-out they maybe.

    Well, this is nice, but what on earth happened to the modding forums? I liked them better where they were...

    And why isn't this displaying in the Cave Story Lite skin? :/

    The modding forums are right below the "Cave Story Discussion Forum" forum.

    I separated the modding forums from the main Cave Story forum since it's popular in it's own right.

    Yeah, we already planned on doing that.

    The next time anywhy is on they will move threads around to the new forums since I don't have the power to do so.

    What are you talking about? They're the same thing. The hacking forum and the mods forum both discuss the same things. The only difference is that the mods forum is for showing off hacks that are being made.

    Or something.

    Hardly, it's right there, in plain few. In fact, it having it's own forum will cause more people to look at it.

    Wrong.

    Wrong.

    Maybe, but this thread isn't for people to talk about the new layout, it was just to say what the section was for.

    Correct.

    No, but that's because one is a verb and the other is a noun. Hacking is what you do to create a mod. Hacking does not necessarily mean changing assembly – it could mean changing any data file as well. So hacking and modding are the same thing, and a hack is the same thing as a mod.

    Something you don't seem to understand. I didn't just change this for no reason, all of this was discussed between andwhyisit, SkyeWelse, and S. P. Gardebiter and myself before I did it.

    Are you saying that their ideas are worthless and useless?

    The layout was planned out by all the Admins, not just me.

    The "Rom Editing/Hacking" subforum is used for any help with creating a mod. The "Cave Story Mods" forum is where you present your mod. I doubt you are complaining about the poor and ill-suited names both subforums have had for years. So what the heck is the point behind your argument?

    Though since you are complaining about where the "Rom Editing/Hacking" forum was located, I fixed that for you. Now can you please get rid of that stupid red text in your sig and stop this childish vendetta (I swear you are out for blood) against MetaSeraphim.

    As for the music section, I transferred around 3 pages of music related threads (minus the countless "Disable Music" and "Broken Music" threads). So much for "only one thread".

    Hey tell me, how do you make a mod in Cave Story? Do you use Pixel's editor? No wait, he didn't give us an editor. The only editors we have to use are editors which were created through hacking the game. Or at least through your definition of hacking, which is looking through the code and changing it/doing stuff with it. So every cave story mod, even one that just changes dialogue, is a hack.

    Personally, I think the arrangement, including hacking as a subforum of modding, makes a lot of sense. So there.

    Now now Lace, that's not true. You know just as well as I do that some idiots cannot mod (hence there being questions on modding as well as hacking).

    But hacking is still just modifying the original engine, so technically hacking is modding.

    Not to mention that the phrase "rom editing/hacking" can mean editing absolutely any file or information on your hard drive, regardless of method. (Note the word "rom")

    Anyway this thread should get be stickied or just make a new sticky thread that doesn't include the fun YOU HAD WHILE I WASN'T HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Of course I wouldn't have been able to help. And since I can't mod, I'm not an idiot!!! :p
