Those reassembled Flintstones graphics look awesome! I just didn't have the talent and patience to do it myself. =) --Fo-sig.gifFlying Omelette 09:17, 8 August 2010 (EDT)

Thanks. I might try the log platforms and goblin later. I haven't played the game much so I'm unfamiliar with how the logs are supposed to look. And the goblin is confusing because it has two different faces and "tail" lengths that can be mixed and matched. And then it has two other head parts that don't seem to fit anywhere. -Rabidabid 19:38, 8 August 2010 (EDT)

That's what I needed. I think I got them just about right now. -Rabidabid 19:30, 9 August 2010 (EDT)

Thanks for fixing the palettes for Boundish. :D --Oaa

No problem. I'm still not certain they're right though. I'm pretty sure the Groove Session icon and Boundish logo are right. But as for the grids, I have no idea. I just wanted to re-rip the graphics since the ones that were uploaded looked a little... warped. --Rabidabid 22:21, 13 August 2010 (EDT)

Please, get NES cats back

Actually, those NES categories at redirection pages exactly what I needed. I want all different game titles in one list, because sometimes you know only japanese or us name so can't find game in list...--Cah4e3 15:40, 13 February 2011 (EST)

No. There's no need for categories to be in redirects, as it clutters up the category page and serves no particular purpose. Redirects are great, but categorizing them is just silly. And don't blame Rabidabid, anyhow, as I was the one who told him to do it. -YK YK-sig.png 15:43, 13 February 2011 (EST)
That exactly where I wanted they displayed: on the category page, so you can choose game by title and get to the correct page... If you don't know right game name, category page it's only page you can find it, but you don't find it if there will be only randomly selected reginal name (mostly US, but why not japanese then? and why hebereke then is japanese by default?)--Cah4e3 15:49, 13 February 2011 (EST)
You make a good point I think. Though having everything together on the same page could cause confusion. I think it would be best to have them on separate pages somehow. Like having a page listing only the Japanese titles or something. --Rabidabid 15:51, 13 February 2011 (EST)
There is not much confusing, except real game counter is less than total page counter in that case... mostly game have very different names to be just a little confusing but actually they needed different title screen shots as well, so I can't see how this can be done all along with redirects... you don't know exactly which game you need when you browse cat page, and doesn't know japan or eu names you neede, you just go and see whole list, that's my point... I see only one another acceptable ay to do the same: display both names in the same game entry in category page (in brackets or so...)--Cah4e3 15:58, 13 February 2011 (EST)

Re: "TOC"/"Clear"

There's a small problem with not having a space between the {{clear}} usage and the ==Topic Title== – sections look very mashed together, making it difficult to tell individual ones at a glance. For example:




==It's A Dilemma==
That's what I said.

Now add picture links, audio links, captions, comparisons, and tables into that...and you've got something where you can barely discern between sections when editing. Keeping it spaced apart allows the page to be easier to edit, and adds little or nothing to the page length. -WarioBarker 14:55, 28 February 2011 (EST)

I know it makes the source page look a bit messier but most people don't look at that. Maybe it's just my small 1024x768 resolution that's exaggerating the space. For example, that Akumajou Special page: this is what I see with the spaces and this is what I see without them. With the spaces, the gap between "Easter Egg" and "Build Date" is a good bit larger than between "Anti-Piracy" and "Easter Egg". It looks inconsistent. I dunno, it just bugs me for some reason. Again, it might just be my resolution. Does the gap look that big on your end? --Rabidabid 20:25, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Yeah, I guess it does. Sorry about that. -WarioBarker 00:09, 2 March 2011 (EST)

Thanks for the pictures!

I appreciate the upload of pictures for the new pages. Hopefully I'll have more entertaining stuff to share. Anyways thanks again. --Abystus 22:52, 12 April 2011 (EDT)

Good catch with Powerball — I was looking for a proper staff roll in Wrestleball (assuming it came first) and the hidden credits aren't in that either.
Rolling Thunder 2 does have a proper credits roll; the hidden names appear to be last names. - Andlabs 09:41, 21 March 2012 (EDT)

Morse code idea

Random idea: http://gdri.smspower.org/wiki/index.php/Daiei_Seisakusho see if all of these have morse code messages? It's the common link between the games you've looked at so far - Andlabs 03:43, 23 July 2012 (EDT)

I actually did check those Famicom/FDS games around the time I made the Dirty Pair page, but I wasn't too thorough. I'll check again. A couple games kept the music playing while paused, but I guess that doesn't rule them out. Chase HQ doesn't even have a pause function IIRC. --Rabidabid 17:21, 23 July 2012 (EDT)

2010 Escapist Article

Why exactly did you remove the linked article from 2010 by Escapist? "On second thought let's not link to the Escapist" isn't really a valid answer. The article's from 4 years ago and credits us for documenting the prototype. --AquaBat (talk) 02:11, 23 February 2015 (EST)

Because lately they appear to be doubling down on catering to the whole GamerGate crowd and are apparently comfortable hiring an openly transphobic writer. They seem to be turning into a rather scummy place I'd rather not show any form of support, no matter how minor. And for the record, I was the one who included the link in the first place. Even then I was on the fence about it, only adding it because they seemed at least semi-popular (which is also why it appeared last on the list). --Rabidabid (talk) 20:09, 23 February 2015 (EST)
We still link to Kotaku. What's your point? --AquaBat (talk) 20:11, 23 February 2015 (EST)
Not sure what that has to do with anything. I gave my reasons. If an admin wants to revert it then fine, whatever. It's really not all that big a deal. --Rabidabid (talk) 20:49, 23 February 2015 (EST)
You're essentially saying "I think this website is bad so I'm going to remove this one link to this one article that has absolutely nothing to do with why I think the website is bad." I was pointing out that people think that Kotaku is a bad website, and I personally would rather not support it, but we continue to link to it, and I don't remove the links just because of my opinion. Yes, you added the link in the first place, but I don't see how that changes anything.
And if it wasn't a big deal, why remove it in the first place? --AquaBat (talk) 23:09, 23 February 2015 (EST)
I don't see why you're making such a big deal out of this. A link was added and removed for reasons by the same person. I haven't seen any objections from the other admins. -Einstein95 (talk) 02:21, 24 February 2015 (EST)
Just confirming for einstein95 and any others involved my lack of objection to what amounts to a single link being removed from a series of examples. It's pretty standard practice for games sites to report on one another's reporting. We're not obligated to document this practice any time said reporting happens to be about us. — Vague / Rant 02:47, 24 February 2015 (EST)

Ape Escape Pizza Hut demo

You get time attack but not the monkey radar gadget to the training area? Interesting. --Psxdriverplayer (talk) 20:10, 11 September 2015 (EDT)

Right. Pretty positive you can time attack levels, but you only get access to the sky flyer, RC car, and water net. --20:15, 11 September 2015 (EDT)
Okay then. Just found a video that shows the Time Attack being there, which the video on the page here didn't. Might be that my demo disc here (SCED-02257) which has this PAL demo is a later build then. --Psxdriverplayer (talk) 20:26, 11 September 2015 (EDT)

Fish Dude

In case you are interested: https://twitter.com/gdri/status/763118441708462080 --NewUserNameAgain (talk) 12:02, 12 August 2016 (EDT)

Neat. I could add that stuff, sure. --Rabidabid (talk) 19:17, 12 August 2016 (EDT)

Nester's Funky Bowling Debug Menu

I was wondering which emulator the screenshot of Nester's Funky Bowling's Debug Menu was taken from? I'm asking because I've tried numerous times in Retroarch (in RetroPie, Hakchi2 on the SNES Classic and on Mac OS X & Window)s and I can't seem to bring that menu up. The menu doesn't show up as it does in this YouTube video. Might you have a RetroArch save state for having the debug menu active? Thanks!

--Eisnerguy1 (talk) 00:21, 17 January 2019 (EST)

Pretty sure I used VBjin for those screens. Might've assigned the necessary buttons to a single key for simplicity. --Rabidabid (talk) 00:41, 17 January 2019 (EST)

Balloon Kids Japanese Release

I was just looking into the claim on the Balloon Kid article that the game was planned "to be released in Japan under the name Balloon Kids," but I couldn't find any evidence of that. It looks like you were the one to add that information to the page. I wasn't able to find anything on my own, but do you happen to remember where you got that information from? --Bluestone (talk) 19:55, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

Ummmmmmm... I don't remember, lol. It wasn't some obscure source I don't think. Like maybe just a line on Wikipedia or something. I dunno. --Rabidabid (talk) 02:16, 30 September 2021 (UTC)
Just checked wikipedia and sure enough, there was a link to an archived site that showed that. It was a citation, but didn't seem like it was directly mentioned in the article, probably how I missed it. Thank you! --Bluestone (talk) 22:37, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
