• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

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.

Completely different thing!
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.

Not a good idea.
Even if Mods and Hacking are popular in their own right, they are still about cave story, and moving them around will just cause lesss people to look at them.
Hardly, it's right there, in plain few. In fact, it having it's own forum will cause more people to look at it.

Lace said:
Also, pretty much the entire main forum is about cave story theories, so there will be almost nothing to post there...
Wrong.

Wrong.

and a music forum?

why?
why make a forum for what one thread was encompassing nicely?

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

There are only TWO mods which are hacks, modding does not necessarily mean changing assembly.
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.

Yes, hacking means screwing with the machine code.
modding is all that wimpy stuff with maps and sprites.
Any Idiot can mod, not everyone can hack.
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")

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