        Why the random Kanji? Wouldn't it have been more consistent if you used kana for the whole thing?

        You use kanji and kana in combination. It's completely normal. Otherwise certain things that can't be spelled with kanji (です、certain forms) would be impossible to write.

      Uh... "Booster's Lab: Still Too Lazy to Actually Read NPC Framerects" is kind of horribly wrong
      The NPC sprite framerects (that is, the positions on the spritesheets - the things Booster's Lab needs) are in the code of said NPCs. npc.tbl just defines hitboxes & display offset.
      Now consider ASM hacks... and things go horribly wrong :(

        My experience is with GB z80, but the same principle still applies.
        Say for instance you have CD CD 41 00 as byte code. CD is interpreted as the "CALL" instruction, which has a two-byte argument for a total of 3 bytes.

        If we execute from the first byte we have:
        CALL $41cd
        NOP

        However if we execute from the second byte we have:
        CALL $0041

        The two couldn't be more different, and without the context of the other instructions either possibility is valid. So you would have to traverse all executable bytecode for each NPC. It is impossible to just parse just one instruction without a wealth of false positives. Not to mention you can't even know where all the code is located without parsing jumps, plus, as Enlightened said, there is no guarantee that the instruction in question is setting framerects.

        If you want accurate detection of framerects then you need a virtual machine. Have I said before how absurd a notion that is? Because it is.

        Now put that in context with what I posted:
        "You have no way of any program knowing the difference between an instruction opcode and an operand argument without parsing a shittonne of asm code to get to that point"

        Sorry, I missed your post before. You do have a point. The reason why it pisses me off is that it's possible, if done well would be totally awesome, and nobody's tried it.

      I also tried to ban you, but Dunc did so first before you could read why. Other people aren’t your tools, nor is the server. I complimented you once on your efforts to be positive, but you clearly gave up on that. You don’t seem to change and you detract from the group being a pleasant place to be. So that’s that, in my book.

      I was playing Rise of Ballos the other day, and somebody talked to me, mentioning that they recognized Quote from their cameo in Gang Garrison. They hadn't really heard of or played the game before. According to him Quote's weapon in the game is the Blade lvl3.

        Open-source really was the way to go.

        I'm only tackling minor stuff at the moment but its great to have it there for ourselves to fork and compile.

        Great way for people to get off your ass and buckle-down themselves.

        If you check MasterLuigi's WR video, he was 2 seconds off 2 minutes. From what i could recall he could have used Super Missiles to hit Ballos quicker during phase 4, which he didn't do. I don't think i wanna do Hell again, since i got the Unstoppable achievement today...

        ? I haven't been on since Monday iirc. Keep me up to date on what's happening there though. My internet became crap and now like half the websites don't work because apparently all of them are trying to hack me. These include Discord, Reddit, iCloud (tf?), Tumblr, Steam, and many, many more.
