Still alive. Although called in sick to work today. Rawwwrrr

Also, I'm hacking pokemon ROMs again. Right now warming up by making a customized firered game for [livejournal.com profile] beasts_and_men but I don't remember why I ever stopped now. Writing a script produces a very pleasing sensation that I think is synesthetic? IDK it's not normal to feel physical sensations when learning new things, right? It happens when I do advanced math too, but with scripting is much more intense. To the point where it can trigger a bit of sensory overload in certain situations, like earlier when I discovered a new, more powerful scripting tool has been developed during my hiatus.

I also tried typing to someone while scripting at the same time. Turns out the two are...kind of incompatible. Usually I just make weird mouth noises while I script because lurrrrrrrrrrr and larrrrrrrrrrvvv. [livejournal.com profile] beasts_and_men enjoyed this xDDD I suspect it's because I'm trying to think in two languages at once. I consider web coding (like HTML) as english, but pokemon coding is veeerry different and I seem to have learned it as its own language. Weird things happen when I try to read German and communicate in English at the same time, so.

....This has been your daily dose of 'weird things my brain does'.


For those of you who weren't around back when I first started doing this...which is quite a lot actually I think...pokemon ROMs are digital copies of pokemon games, meant to be played on an emulator* of the appropriate system. So basically, they're the game files that allow you to play pokemon games on your computer. DISCLAIMER BECAUSE THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS NINTENDO ACTUALLY WORRIES ABOUT: it is illegal to download a ROM of a game you haven't already physically purchased. Personally, I do in fact own a physical copy of every. single. pokemon game. So. xD

Hacking a ROM is using various tools + scripting to change the game. It doesn't really translate well to hacking, say, a computer, because pokemon engines are written in their own scripting language.

I feel like I'm rambling about stuff that is boring for everybody except me, you can check out the tags on this entry to find actual screenshots of stuff that I have done lol

*an emulator, if you were wondering, is a program that runs, basically, another OS on your computer. You can, say, get a windows emulator on a linux system, within which you can run windows-only programs. Video game emulators run an imitation of the console OS on your computer.


ETA I feel like it's a reasonable expectation that I can take a psych class without having to listen to a lecture that is all about how I don't know the difference between a person and an object because I'm autistic. It doesn't help that this woman clearly doesn't know shit because she thinks infants possess theory of mind.

Note the first: so I've actually posted something on [livejournal.com profile] owlofowls besides that one fic. It's the stuff I've been working on re: Sherlock/Pokemon fusion, and you can see it here. I won't be saying anything from now on when I post over there because that would be obnoxious of me, so I suggest you friend/watch that account if you want to keep up with these things? c:

Note the second: BOXCROFT )

Note the third: my leg is almost all better! YAYYYY

My stomach is now angry that I'm eating properly ('properly') again, though. Apparently it was enjoying the diet of nothing but pretzels and nutella and V8 juice. I dared eat something with just a bit of dairy in it today and it was like the vengeance of an angry god. In my gut.

First of all, these comics. HILARIOUS.

Second of all, the House of Meerlock. This is my new religion, we worship, love and snuggle the Almighty Meerlock. Currently inducted into the House of Meerlock are myself, [livejournal.com profile] dakfire, and I think everyone over at [livejournal.com profile] beasts_and_men. [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom will soon have the choice of becoming a member and [livejournal.com profile] anobjectinspace will be forcefully inducted next time we have a chance to Skype together. We are a very secret society so I can't disclose any more than that except that once [livejournal.com profile] anobjectinspace has been inducted we can go public and CONVERT THE WORLD TO THE LOVE OF MEERLOCK.

ALL HAIL MEERLOCK

There will be tumblr .gifs to assist with conversion. We will pass these out in lieu of pamphlets.

Finally, this. It is the epitome of gaming experience. POKEMON TOWER DEFENSE GAME. WHERE YOU CATCH THE POKEMON. O MY GOD. All it needs is some Meerlock. (Everything could use a bit of Meerlock.)

Photos of Ditto plush YAY! (Dittos look like this)



More under here )


I did a fair bit of baking tonight, that post will probably be going up tomorrow because it's bedtime for me now!

Soooo I THOUGHT YOU GUYS MIGHT LIKE SOME EVIDENCE THAT I CAN SCRIPT

Cut for posperity )

ETA I MADE A TRAINER TOO

I have made enough progress on the Pikmin hack to show some of it off properly!

...I wanted to do this with a screen capture video, but, um, I can't get it to work right. CamStudio Recorder kept telling me it was having errors saving the audio when I had set it to not record audio and when I finally got it to record the video for me, the finished video was...choppy and jumpy and flashy? IDEK it wasn't watchable. So here are some screenies! I need to find better screen capture software.

Screenies screenies )

So yeah that's it for now. I think for awhile I'll work on a hack I'm thinking about that won't require any sprites drawn by me, just a lot of new maps c: also, take a break to play some Pokemon Black.

UNSUCCESS

SO remember how I said last post that I got to have the room to myself tonight?

My roommate's closet started...misbehaving. Every time I looked away I swear to god it was opening more. In small increments.

IT'S OPEN AGAIN A BIT FURTHER THAN IT WAS LAST NIGHT

Anyways I also thought I was hearing noises. So basically I freaked out, stayed up to 6 AM and slept restlessly with all the lights on and strange dreams.

In the end, I think probably roommate's mirror hanging on the inside of the door is somehow moving it veeeeerry slooooowly and the noises were almost definitely coming from my creaky old floor fan. But I'm super paranoid about these rooms after my experiences in my dorm room last year :c


Anyways in less pathetic news ummmm...I finally figured out how to use a gameboy emulator!

I guess this news is actually not at all less pathetic.

Anyways I downloaded one and also the ROMs for a few of the original pokemon games. Plus some harvest moon game I have not played before.

I finally get to play Yellow properly 6 u 9 (we lost the hard copy after I had only gotten past the first gym). If anybody has suggestions for games I should try to find the ROMs for, go ahead? I LOVE MONSTER GAMES. I'm already intending to have a look for those tele...whatever games, the ones that kept getting bootleg translated and sold as 'pokemon jade' and 'pokemon black' back before there was a real Pokemon Black. I hear there is a ROM out now of the Pokemon Jade version.

Doing some baking tonight per Paige's request. She wants to feed her sectional. Still have a lot of shortening I think, so will probably make snickerdoodles and some sugar cookies. Does shortening go bad...?

Maybe I'll also make some nutella brownies. I haven't made those in awhile.
