        Why would you feel dirty for getting help? :(

        Well, the reason the majority of people use it (including myself) is for homework answers. I found myself in the middle of another classic Tommy homework all-nighter because I was procrastinating and busy with work from other classes the past few days, and I wasn't ready for the mental stress and physical toll I would have to endure with getting no sleep, so I caved in and bought it so I could just have the answers. I feel bad about it because it was for a class I actually want to do well in using my own ability, and because I'm effectively paying to cheat. It feels morally wrong for me to do something like that in a class that I feel is important, but it was either that or my grade, and I'm not going to feel so guilty that I ignore the latter.

        Classic all-nighters, huh...I definitely know of those. I don't think I could live with myself if I purchased answers and would just fail the course aka breakdown...probably not my best decision in retrospect. I guess as long as you're going to learn in the process rather than being completely dependent on the answers, and that this is just a temporary delay, then it would be helpful...easier said than done, though.

        I hope you'll be able to sleep well now that you have the answers, though. At least I hope you'll be able to focus more on that aspect. Don't underestimate its necessity (this coming from someone who always does :P).

      WOW what a fantastic birthday. It was great hanging out with my close ones, and the number of birthday wishes I got was spectacular. Seriously, the amount of love from my forum family alone was crazy. Thank you all so very much for that <3 Perhaps the greatest gift of all came from @Random-storykeeper. Like, I seriously can't do it any justice by describing it. Huge props to the penguin girl.

      Hey mate, happy birthday! Hope you enjoy your cake, and I recently played Megaman X Cave story a few days ago; I remember playing it back in 2015 and having lots of trouble but coming back to it, I ended up loving the level design. It has the right amount of challenge and still some rewarding things to keep the player going which is nifty. I am curious though, did you lower the gravity of the spark ball weapon, because I'm pretty sure it's a Fireball which is cool. And is the arrow barrage The Machine Gun on steroids?
      1. Tpcool
        Tpcool
        Thank you very much, Cold!! I'm glad you decided to go back and play that mod. That makes me happy. I really put as much work into the level design as I could given what I had to work with, so thank you for being able to appreciate it. The weapons are a bit odd... the spark ball weapon was pretty much just me modifying a bunch of numbers in the Fireball's code, thanks to Carrotlord's ASM guide and the simple Fireball example he made. The Arrow Barrage was something that Hina made for me, I believe? But yeah, it's basically like the Machine Gun on steroids, if the steroids also inhibited the range of the bullets :(

        But yeah, thanks again man!

        Ahh, that's interesting; I've been working on a Fireball variant and I've been trying to make it slower, and I find it funny the way you basically just messed around with some numbers; and I too used carrotlord's asm guide, it leads right to the speed which is also great. And did you also design the bosses AI too? The Igor fight had got me when I first got to his battle, his speed caught me off guard, the Balrog one was easier but tricky when he became jumping erratically. And I noticed the megaman character sprite was taken from this mod: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2paoglFJTRw
        An interesting tidbit but a fun mod nonetheless.

        Both bosses were graciously coded by @BLink! I was really excited that he took the time out to make both of those bosses for me, because I think it tied the whole experience together.

        Indeed, I did use that Mega Man sprite for my mod. metalsonic71's original thread (https://www.cavestory.org/forums/threads/what-if-we-can-make-a-mega-man-mod-for-cave-story.4967/) kickstarted my whole idea in the first place (you'll notice I even made the org that plays in his concept video). So I guess we have that man to thank for the existence of CSxMM :)

      Can't say I was expecting to expecting to stay up all night (on a school night, no less) in an 8 hour long call with @duncathan and @Polaris. It was really quite special though, and those two were a lot of fun to talk with, especially because we don't talk nearly enough. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to figure out how I'm going to last another 9 hours at College on zero hours of sleep :D

        Yeah no I can see the merit behind the system. It's not TERRIBLE, and it definitely helps keep you from getting too overpowered. It was just a massive pain when I was doing a Nuzlocke of Black 2. Spent so much time getting new Pokemon up to speed and every unfortunate loss meant loads more grinding.

        The exp scaling in gen 5 barely made a difference because pretty much everything was given higher base exp, along with as you said Audinos being everywhere and getting a Lucky Egg shoved right in your face. It has always been easier to blow through the games with a single overpowered thing than to try to make a "proper" team, I guess that's why GF finally gave up and just started giving exp to everything.

        But yeah gen 5 was great, it was a genuine breath of fresh air and was what gen 4 should have been right from the start. I'm so glad we got at least one generation of fully animated sprites before they went entirely 3D.

        You'd probably find them in websites that specialize in drama, rn the evidence is being spread around like wildfire so it shouldn't take too long to find
        I'd probably not recommend reading the logs like ever for sanity reasons, I'm just going to pretend they didn't exist and move on

    My ORG archive: Feel free to use any of these as long as you provide credit.

    I take ORG requests for mods, but only on a limited basis and if I have the drive. Take a look at the guidelines below and contact me on Discord at Tpcool#0515 if you are interested, or send me a private message on the forum here.
    -Is it worth my time to make music for you? What I ask: don't request music to be made unless you already have a finished demo.

    -Some music, especially more modern songs, tend to not transition very well over to the ORG format. ORG is very limited in what you can make (8 melody tracks and basic percussion), so make sure the music you want transcribed isn't too complex. This means anything from the SNES-era or before would probably be a good fit.

    -Before you decide what music you want, consider that I can only transcribe certain music. This is because transcribing requires a way to isolate the channels of a song, which is only possible on certain platforms. Here is a brief list of transcriptions that would be possible:
    • Most NES, SNES, GB, SMS, and Genesis music because I have a way of easily ripping the music and transcribing it by ear.
    • Cave Story Wii, GBA, and DS music, in specific instances. These can be more difficult to obtain and transcribe.
    • Most songs on VGMusic. This method is not necessary unless your song does not meet the requirements of the other bullet points, because MIDIs made by others are often times inaccurate to the source material.
    -Bonus points for if you need a Mega Man, Pokémon, or Sonic song :cool:
