• 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.

  • I've had it made known to me that for about a week now people haven't been able to finish registering or receive email notifications. I can imagine how frustrating this must have been, particulary for our newest members. Unfortunately our site owner is away at the moment and he most likely won't be able to do anything about it for another week or so. Until then, anyone who wants their account manually verified can contact me via their method of preference and I'll sort it for them myself. Thanks to everyone for their patience regarding this issue. -DoubleThink

  • Emails should hopefully be fixed, please let us know if they're working properly now.

Physical release?

Why not a floppy disk that looks just like the Save Point? /s
(Floppy disk albums are really a thing though, look it up.)


Seriously though, that too.
That would be amazing. I would certainly buy that!

Truth be told, I basically already did this in another thread. Not only can you fit the entire soundtrack and orgplayer on one diskette, but I fit +90% of Pixel's work onto five disks. It's outdated and came before Pink Heaven and KeroBlasters' Zangyou update, and I didn't have Kero Rhythm included now that I'm looking at it, so I would expand that to 6 total floppy disks for the ultimate Pixel collection...

...it's not for sale.

That cover looks awesome! I'm gonna see if I can find a place where we can get the covers for cheap.
It isn't hard to get blank jackets for cheap, but printing on them affordably is another matter entirely, though I've heard that there are tricks to get around that. I'll look into it.

EDIT: The order has been submitted. It should take 4-5 weeks before the vinyls arrive.

I paid for two extra records because I knew someone was going to pull a stunt like this. I'll note you down for one of the extras.

Thank you so much. Had I known there was going to be a vinyl pressing of the CS soundtrack I would have said I wanted one before they were ordered, I apologize and thank you again.

Guess what came in the mail...





Sadly the colours of the centre labels are a little washed out.

I'll probably need to get you guys to PM me (or email me) with your addresses so that I can calculate shipping costs.

In the meantime I'll be looking into lp mailers this weekend. This option in particular looks like a good one:
http://www.ebay.com.au/gds/Music-Records-How-To-Post-Them-Safely-/10000000000134819/g.html

I have zero desire to buy 50 to 100 mailers in bulk or spend $40 in shipping costs buying them overseas just to deliver 6 records, so I'll ask around the local pizza places this weekend. If this is a terrible idea then let me know.

Also if any of you know each other irl I could probably send two records to one address and save on postage.

Whyisit, thank you so much for all you've done. I'm on mobile at the moment, but is your email on your profile? The records look great!

My email is realmmaster26@hotmail.com



You guys like pizza right? Well too bad 'cause these boxes only contain vinyl records.

I swear it's like pizza boxes were made for holding vinyl records, they fit so perfectly.

I'm still waiting on BLink and Kase377 to send me address details.

Edit: Turns out the packaging and item works out to around 700 grams (though I kinda tested that with the old kitchen scales), and the $12 USD I estimated earlier for shipping to the US was for a maximum of 500 grams. So it works out to $24 USD for shipping to the US within the 500 grams to 1 kg range. As for zxin, yours sits at around $11 AUD currently.

I could save 100 grams max repacking it, but anything more would probably compromise on something.

$23 USD, and in your case $30 AUD.

So, for those in the US it would be $23 + $24 shipping, for a total of $47
That's really nice considering it would cost me about $80 to get a single 7-inch made and shipped if I only ordered one.

I'm guessing you are going to email/PM us individually about payment?

Uhh scratch that guys. I think the scales I have been using are really inaccurate since the bathroom scales are reporting that I am 400 grams heavier while holding one of the packages.

I'll get these packages professionally weighed at the post office tomorrow morning. If I am lucky and the bathroom scales are closer to the mark then the shipping costs can be practically sliced in half. So we'll hold off on payment options until then. It's probably better that I take the time to get this right.

Fair enough. I guess this means the shipping costs would be even less?

One of the packages measured at the post office works out to 414 grams. Soo...

zxin, your postage is now $7 AUD (so that's $37 AUD all up).
EnlightenedOne, Raghav, and rixis19, your shipping costs are now $12 USD (for $35 USD all up). Although I can switch up from economy air to standard at $18 USD on a case by case basis if any of you want tracking codes.

I personally don't care for tracking, I like a surprise. Whatever is cheaper and safe.

Well, if that's the final price can we get a payment method now?

I'm thinking paypal... if that's okay? Do you all have paypal accounts?

I'll PM/email payment links later on if that is fine.
