Also, this is the perfect opportunity for you to grab the Podcast Player too!
The lesson plan for the the Tutorials is up, as are some public domain sprite sheets to tie you over. Still working on the "Boss Run" page.
Random Favour to Ask:
If anyone isn't too busy, would anyone be able to finish off the public domain Bass sheet? (Basically the turning around sprites as if he was on a Stoneman platform), it'll help get the tutorials up quicker.
Anyone else listen to Podcasts? Are you like me, also sick of losing your places thanks to playing the files via WinAMP or somesuch?
And are you sick of dedicated programs to listening to Podcasts coming bundled with all that ad-ware crap most free-ware stuff likes to bundle itself with now-a-days?
Well, here is a simple solution to that problem:
This program does exactly one thing and one thing only: It loads Mp3s (or OGGs) - and keeps track of the position of that file when closed down. Reload the Mp3 later and pick up your podcast where you left off!
That is it, and that is all the program does. It's all it needs to do.
I was pretty amazed by the sheer lack of the existence of such a program (or at least one that wasn't bundled with crap up the wazoo), so here, have one on me: Get it here. (700kb)
Happy listening! I'll add this to the games page when I eventually get round to fixing that section.
Current release supports .mp3s, .ogg and .aif file-types.
Also if you have any free time, please add to the thread listed below, as we definitely want to start out official INC videos with a bang, and your input is greatly appreciated.
Hey, we got the download listed on C.Net, so reviews on the program would be appreciated! C.Net Link
Greetings all. I'm posting this on behalf of ACE who will better communicate his intentions hopefully later on. As a prelude to the forthcoming Inc Reviews where members review fanmade games and whatnots, ACE would like to have a video series where we go over...and i quote,
Quote:Most Absurdly Difficult, Irritating, or Worst Mega Man Bosses
Please feel free to contribute your own thoughts regarding bosses. and if someone you know to fit this description has already been mentioned...mention it again! ACE is keeping a running tally of how many times certain bosses are called out for their annoyance *cough*King Jet*cough*.
A couple of sorely missing sheets have been added to the archive. Still working on getting Xover sorted, but my OCC is making sorting those out a bit of a nightmare.
Still, anyway, updates:
Unless otherwise noted, rips are by me.
Megaman Space Rescue and Megaman 3 Mobile sprites added.
Dr Light & Rush:
* Megaman 9 & 10 sprites updated and added.
Mega Man 4 (NES)
* Additional frames added for Gyotot (fish) enemies. (Thanks N-Mario!)
* Additionally, game objects have been shifted off the enemy sheet, and into the Misc section.
* The Ending Screens for the game have been re-added.
Mega Man 9
* Intro Re-Ripped, and additional scenes. (Thanks Metal-Man!)
Mega Man 10:
*Block Devil added.
Mega Man & Bass
Misc section completely overhauled, and has resulted in re-ripping of basically everything there. Now includes things from both SNES and GBA versions, and has added the following:
* Dr Light's Mugshot from the CD database.
* Pause Screen
* Stage Select
* Character Select
* Title Screen
* Rain Effects from Robot Museum
Megaman: The Power Fighters
* Unused frames for Bass and Protoman found by Fusion. Cheers!
Street Fighter X Megaman
* Sagat added.
* "Perfect" and "New Challenger" text added.
* Stage Select added.
* Unused Mugshot for M.Bison added.
* Unused Stage Select added. (Thanks Rhythm!)
Mega Man 3 (Mobile)
* Bosses added.
* Weapons added.
* Misc added.
* Missing frame from X2's Zero added. (Thanks Qarabe!)
Mega Man X1
* Deleted excess Rangda Bangda sheets.
Mega Man X2
* Don't know if it's of any use to anyone, but the old assembled version of Mechaniloid CF-0 has been added to the X2 section, in addition to the pieces rip I did ages ago. So you have choice once more!
* Incorrectly identified unused frames moved to correct section.
In my defense.. they appear to be unused in Rock Man X2, but used in Mega Man X2. I've never seen the Ride Armour User leave his Armour on my Japanese copy!
Mega man X5
* Even more unused sprites from this game!
There are various rips of X from the Intro stage... due to how the game handles the sprite, I've left up all variants, so use what-ever you deem useful.
An unused weapon graphic and an additional frame for the Gaea Armour. Cheers Fusion!
Mega Man X (iOS)
* Velgauder & D-Rex added. Unassembled sheets for Bo-Spider and Rangda Bangda also up. (Thanks Ciel for the upload, assembled by me.)
* Weapons Added (Thanks Ciel!)
Just a heads up, COPPA has been enabled on the forums. Due to the fact we're on a US server, this basically means anyone under the age of 13 needs their parent's permission sent to me directly in order to post on the forums.
Since I am in the UK, and most people signing up here are US based, it's illogical for me to require a posted form, and fax is basically impossible, so e-mail permission is the only way forward.
As a side result of this, ZeroGreenSaber has just been banned, because legally, we cannot have him on the forum.
ZGS, if you're reading this, get your parents to talk to us and we'll see what we can do.
Hello all! Just wanted to let you know of a new plugin added to the site that allows the ability to give out awards! (Yay!) With this, anyone who has won an award during the previous Annual Awards have been given them and they now appear on their profile pages as well as in their infobox when they make a post.
I will try to find a way to add some milestone-specific awards such as X amount of posts, X number of members referred (yes we can do that), and others. If you have any suggestions for these Milestone awards, please let us know!
Also, if you have posted your awards in your signature, (and i haven't caught it yet) please remove them since displaying them twice would be redundantly redundant.
If you don't see the affiliates bar to your left, and buttons just below the top bar, refresh the page, as they've been added back.
We'll be pruning the user database shortly to get rid of members who've signed up but not used their account, to cut down on the size of the database. If you signed up but haven't actually posted anything, I'd recommend at least introducing yourself in the relevant thread so you aren't pruned.
Still haven't found the webpage files for the Christmas Carol games (they're on the harddrive somewhere, but haven't found them), and the high scores are currently shot to buggery (as in they don't work), but the games page has been put back up - at the very least you can download them and still play Quint's Bomb Rush.
As a consolation prize, temporarily added is also one of my very, very, very old fangames, Zero's Battle Battle Revolution, which is awful, but is a fun trip down memory lane to how fangames used to be.
So, hopefully everything that was added to the site from 2011 to now (with the exception of the latest update, because I cannot locate those files) - every update made should now be back up, meaning the archive is more or less operational now.
But, since I basically just hit "mass upload", there may be some issues, so any help would be appreciated as we get back on our feet!
Report any pages with multiple sheets, nonfunctional links, etc, etc, etc. Link to the page and I'll try and update it.
I'm still sorting out the rest of the site, so it would be a great help if people could report any errors.
