Animal Crossing: New Leaf still has some secrets.

romfs/Strc/Shadows/ contains three unused .bcres files.

bench2x1_shadow.bcres
lamp_shadow.bcres
my_home_shadow.bcres

I wondered why none of the model viewers/converters could open them. Turns out they ar an older bcres format. Does not have "DATA" and "IMAG" magic.

I was able to convert the textures with texturipper_1.2, but nothing with the model data so far.

Texture data is before the readable stuff.

bench2x1_shadow
fieldobj_shadow
...
lu_shadow_spc2

Used bcres format: revision: 05000000
Old bcres format: revision: 04010000

Still going through the files to look for more. Item/model/ 3881 files here alone.

we live in the age of the internet. people are going to be playing your game, talking about it, and sharing information about it. you're just going to have to deal with it because that's just how things are.

honestly...no amount of DMCA strikes will make people stop talking about your game. all that will do is piss everyone off and make them stop supporting (and with enough pushing, stop buying your games altogether).

I had a quick look into this and it sounds like they just don't want people spoiling the ending, unless I pulled up the wrong article.

yeah, that was the big fiasco when the game first came out and they started going after streamers. going so far as to try and limit how much of the game was allowed to be streamed (up to a certain in-game date iirc).

this is more emulation related.

Shadow of War Dev's Failed Attempt to Justify Loot Boxes

well, he's got a good point comparing loot boxes to cheat codes.


Microsoft, You Greedy Wankers! Let's Talk Forza 7...

Microsoft: oh, you wanted to have some fun with your new racing game? well, we can't let that happen, now can we? *adds micro-transaction system to said racing game*

stupid devs...

edit: (portal knights) o_O wow, sweet event reward. i had an event appear called The Pillars and their Temple which led to the island of Kolemis... 3 trials later AND... my prize is an entire, large, island with no enemies, no ore (just stone and dirt), and some plant called kolemis aloe.

even the island the game starts you on isn't a "peaceful mode" equivalent so this is quite the prize. a whole island, no enemy spawns, and free to reshape it as i see fit. you can't get a much better reward than that in a sandbox game like this.


Sonic Mania update for Switch out.

Debug mode removed/changed. Oh...

And Home button delay fixed.

Seisou no Amazones (星霜のアマゾネス) - Demo Gameplay - Part 1

Has an Etrian Odyssey vibe, but without the map making.

(in portal knights) *unlocks the island, New Caul* ...?!... *looks around to be sure* O_O holy... coal, COAL EVERYWHERE! there must be over 10 thousand blocks of coal below ground level in this island!

i could fill an entire treasure vault full of chests with so much coal and never run out.

edit: gold, coal, obsidian boulders, giant floating crystals that drop gossomer... this whole island is a floating mountain of ores. this is an awesome island type. :)

maybe if fire and coal worked like that in this game.

edit: it's not a video game but do any of you remember that game where you squeeze the handle at the end of the dogs leash to make it poop yellow play dough (or whatever that stuff was)?

that game was basically just getting kids to pick up dog shit.

well, now there's another disgusting game being advertised. forgot the name of it but this one is a small plastic toilet and the goal is not get sprayed with water from it.

and now we have one where they get sprayed with toilet water...

anyone else find this to be rather disgusting?

As usual, it's not what tools and materials you have at your disposal, it's how you use them. The most resourceful get the best results.

I randomly decided to search the Play Store for mermaid games and found...

...this. It's certainly an odd choice for something claiming to be a educational kids game.

Edit: Oh buddah, there's more of 'em!

o_O any aimed at teaching kids about sex? cause something tells me that wouldn't be too much of a stretch from teaching them about child birth.

the phrase "age inappropriate content" seems to mean less and less these days as people keep trying to push more and more advanced things onto young kids.

then again, it's not like all that many follow the ESRB/etc. age ratings (CoD being a prime example of this) anymore. makes me wonder if, eventually, the only age rating that will even matter will be AO/18+ and E for Everyone. and how far the standards of AO might drop over time...

edit: *types in "sex" in the search bar at kongregate* o_O why am i not surprised? i doubt they'd actually allow anything explicit on the site despite how they let over 90% of the internets "video game" garbage be uploaded but really, i bet over 90% of these results are from other video game arcade websites.

kong gave up filtering that crap and having anything remotely resembly "standards" years ago.

Back in the days of ancient Egypt, you were an adult really early, maybe we're just jumping back to that.

iirc the age of consent in japan is still in the 8-12 range which leads me to wonder what their stance on things like pedophilia is like. i mean, iirc they legalized shota porn content a while back so there's that but that still leaves the topic in general.

They understand that art is art.

In the more urban areas, like Tokyo, I've heard the age of consent actually is raised to match the western countries (18), and it's just more rural areas that still have the old laws.

Not sure. The store does have a rule against sexual content, but it's not like anyone over there actually follows the rules.

Actually, I think it's more a case of people trying to milk ad revenue out of kids than people pushing sex on to kids. Chances are these pregnancy simulators don't contain any sex or visible genitals, and quite a few of these use stolen characters.

I know cartoon violence gets a massive pass in this regard. Good Knight Story has gore in it yet only has a PG rating because it's not realistic enough.

I heard that even though their age of consent is around 12, they're still not allowed to have sex until they're 17.

more so than some western people >.>

and that makes sense, i guess. assuming some of said rural areas are in more remote locations.

oops, ddn't mean to hit "post" yet.

that's not surprising in the slightest. especially if the games in question are shitty little cash grab games a random dev churns out for a quick buck or 2.

i bet, with the right art style (make it look cartoony enough), even a game like dark souls could have a surprisingly low age rating. but...who would want to bother with it at that point? it'd be like so many other games that fade away in time.

and off topic from that but i was looking around last night trying to find a certain type of RPG (well, a certain design type) and...came up empty.

the type of game i was looking for would be either top-down or isometric camera angle and play somewhat like diablo 2 if that's anything to go on. i'm pretty sure it'd be of the "action rpg" sub-genre.

not looking for any particular game, just some to try out with that kind of design. maybe from the 1990's?

sorry for the vagueness but tbh, i'm not even sure what exactly i was looking for myself. it was just one of those late night random browsing sessions.

it might help if i could sort by year on gamefaqs. >.<

Which console? The only thing I can think of (besides Diablo) is Eternium but that's for mobile.

Action RPG would be your best bet.

the SJWs would go nuclear if a game like that somehow got released nowadays...and it would be worth every penny to see the salt coming from them.

PC of course and i didn't mean a diablo clone before those come up. i've seen plenty of those.

Could Planet Minecraft Actually Exist?

0:50 just a thought but... if that's the X or Y value then... i wonder how much space and entire minecraft map (taking into account the X, Y, AND Z values) might take up if filled to capacity with blocks. and as a bonus question: how much MB would such a map take up? lol

i'm not sure how to do the math the to figure that out so i'll leave it to someone who does but i bet the answer would be an absurdly large area of space and probably an absurdly large file size too with the entire map loaded.

i'm just wondering how big the map would be is all.

assuming that you mean how big the planet would be if it was a minecraft-esque cube would be, you just need to multiply 921.6 quadrillion meters (I believe a single MC block is about a meter long, if the height of the player is taken into account, but I could be wrong) by 6 then you would have your answer. If you were talking about file size though, that size would be about 97.5 Petabytes in data, which is about 965000 terabytes.
