  • speaking of your fourth ending mod, i've been meaning to ask - how'd you do the blade automatically levelling down when on that route?
    HaydenStudios
    HaydenStudios
    Ah, I'm glad you asked - I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with this. I placed H/V triggers throughout every possible map that you can access during that part of the mod. And whenever you would pass under one of those triggers, it would do <TAM0009:0009:0000 (trade the blade for the blade, with no change in ammo). This would automatically bring the blade down to level 1 without impacting any of the other weapons. These triggers will only appear if a flag is set when you have the blade on the path for the 4th ending. One side effect of this is that you can't open up your inventory or map system while underneath one of these triggers, since an event in the room's script is actively running and repeatedly trading the blade for the blade. But I don't think most people noticed, since I strategically placed them so that you almost definitely won't be able to get the blade up to level 3, and you're also very unlikely to stop and open up the map system while standing directly underneath one of these triggers.

    holy shit that's pretty clever lmao, nice job
    Hey man! I love your fourth ending mod for Cave Story and was wondering if you had a port of it for WiiWare! Playing it on my wii would be awesome :)

    Thanks, glad you liked it! Heh, it's one thing to ask me to port my mod to WiiWare, but it's another thing entirely to ask me to port my mod to WiiWare all these years later when there are much more desirable ports to play (such as CS+ on PC and Switch), and the WiiShop has been discontinued for almost 3 years now, making it much harder to obtain a copy of that port of CS. In any case, I don't know how to port mods to WiiWare, and I'm not interested in investing the time into it, so I'm afraid that won't be happening. I greatly appreciate you reaching out, though! It's great to see so many people enjoying my mod, even when it's been nearly 10 years.

    Wait, if you don't know how to port mods to the Wii, how'd you get the footage of the 4th ending running on the Wii for your video?

    Haha, I think you're the first person who's ever asked me that. That was Cave Story+ with the "New Music" playing, I just claimed that it was the WiiWare version and crossed my fingers that most people would automatically believe me.
    My Undertale passion project is coming along, and I have a considerable amount of tangible content to show. If you're interested in seeing what I have and giving feedback (or even helping with the project itself), feel free to either respond here or PM me. Responses are welcome even if you're seeing this weeks or even months after I've posted this.

    Very interesting. I've only played one or two Undertale fangames (one was Undertale - Red, I liked that); don't know what else is out there really. But knowing your work with Cave Story's 4th ending, will be quite curious to see what you'll cook up :D
    Congratulations on your 2000th!

    Thanks! Something I've been working hard to accomplish for almost 10 years now. It's even harder to do it these days than it was before, given that there's less to post about, and especially in my case, because I've always been strongly against posting just for the sake of posting. Guess I'm officially the 15th member to reach 2000 posts. Let's hope I won't be the last... I had my hopes up that WoodenRat was going to reach it, but he fell just a bit short and eventually went inactive.

    Hey, do you happen to know where Pixel debunked the "colons on the balcony" theory? My own searches for a source on it have failed... :balrog:

    Oh wow, so that's what everyone was reacting to! That's pretty neat it was just an email though; previously I had heard it was on Pixel's BBS, but I recently searched the whole thing and found nothing. I wonder if Pyroaid still has the email kicking around... Thank you so much!

    Sorry Cold, Festive Quest already used that idea. You wouldn't want to steal ideas from more mods now would you? :p
    I get your picture now. It stands for "Quote And Curly Brace Love/Heart/together forever."
    I can't believe I missed that this whole time.
    HaydenStudios
    HaydenStudios
    Yep. What timeframe does "this whole time" constitute? How long did you lurk here before joining?

    3 years. then I decided to make mods myself.
    I am right now in the planning phase of an Undertale passion project. If you would be interested in getting an early look and providing feedback, please either respond to this message or PM me.

    kinda late but i'm undertale guy so i'm up for helping out with testing or whatever
    HaydenStudios
    HaydenStudios
    Great! I will PM you. By the way, if anyone sees this several weeks or even months later, don't be shy to reply or PM me. It will be a while before this project is done, and it will be great to get feedback, as well as testing later on.
    199 more posts, good luck.

    Heh, yeah, hard to believe I'm that close. Might take another year or so with how much activity has been declining on these forums, but I bet I'll still get there.
    Last night, for some reason, I felt compelled to browse back through a bunch of threads and PMs from years ago that involved a bunch of drama that I was involved with.
    Hi, Hayden! Can I make a sequel mod based off your 4th ending mod?
    zxin
    zxin
    Well, there probably isn't any problem with setting your mod after the 4th ending mod? They're all dirrivitive works anyway.
    HaydenStudios
    HaydenStudios
    Hey, sorry for my late response! You are more than welcome to make a mod that serves as a sequel to my 4th ending. GunBladeMaster34 started on a mod like that 7 1/2 years ago, but it never came to fruition.
    HaydenStudios
    HaydenStudios
    Also haha, I'm quite amused that you would go to the trouble to petition for my mod to be made cannon, but I'm doubtful that that's going to do much to influence NICALiS. I really appreciate the gesture though. It makes me happy to see my mod affecting people even 8 years later.

    hey, Hayden. im found something in your Fourth Ending port to CS+. there is bad images. there is "Face.bmp; ItemImage.bmp; creditXX.bmp; casts.bmp"; NPC folder images and Stage folder images. what is this?
    HaydenStudios
    HaydenStudios
    Did you open the port up in Plus Porter and apply it?

    yes

    im applied port again, everything is okay
    Did anyone ever catch the fact that my fourth ending video tries to make it look like windsofwinds is an admin on these forums at 12 minutes in?
    of course it'd be you who remembered the entire polar body thing
    i expected nothing less of you
    great job ;^;
    Hey Hayden what's up? How's life treating you? Are you going to mod anymore sometime in the future or are you enjoying just watching the people around here stroll by, meet, and greet?

    Things have been pretty great so far, I'm finally living on my own and am working a full time job! I'm currently spending most of my free time doing some CS modding and creating some more useful asm hacks that everyone could use in mods. (Such as a fully functional money hack from CS beta and some snow in the foreground not at all dissimilar to how it is in WTF story.) I've been working with Thomas Xin as well as Bubbler on a new version of CS (called Chocolate CS) that has all the elements of vanilla as well as some new tile types, a lot of new TSC commands (including the ones in Noxid's original TSC+) And moving every singe entity to a single bitmap (because apparently bullet.bmp can expand infinitely downwards) This along with many other misc functions such as an improved random number generator, up to 0x1000 entities on a single map (compared to 0x200) options for animated facepics ect ect ect. Oh yeah also the graphics are getting a boost to 3X the original size!

    Other than that I've just been running the Cave Story Modding Community Discord with Kiseff/Ralren and Enlight. We've been having these monthly-ish events where we get together for 5 hours and mod The first one was a lot of fun and we even got some people back into modding because of it. The second one is going to happen on the 18th of November if you have 5 or 6 hours to spare then lol.

    As for your Cave Story Machinima idea, I've certainly been thinking about something along those lines the past few months but I agree it would take far too much effort at the current time with our resources to achieve anything worthwhile sadly.

    Also I do plan on picking up Sue's Story again! Finally after 4 years of sitting on the shelf I think I will be able to finish it now that DoR3 is off the table and I'm wrapping up some other mini projects and Chocolate. Every so often somebody drifts buy and mentions Sue's Story and how it was one of their first mods or so and that it was great. It really makes me want to resurrect it and make it better now that I'm uhh... a little more experienced on how good game design works lol.

    Hey, that's awesome! What kind of job are you working? That's great that you're still able to stay in the modding arena while having a full-time job, very few people survive that transition. Sorry to hear about all the drama that surrounded DoR3, it's a shame that all that work went to waste. Cave Story Chocolate sounds awesome, and good luck continuing with Sue's Story. I didn't think it was amazing, but it had a decent charm to it that I enjoyed; I'd be interested to see your take on it now that you have much more modding experience. I'm afraid that I almost definitely won't be able to participate in your little modding marathon on November 18th, but I hope you all have a wonderful time.

    I'm currently working in construction; I've built 3 fourplexes with one other person and also roof houses. It's not easy work though and with all the bodily toil I need to look for another job to be quite honest.

    Everything that happened about DoR3 was my fault. I trusted someone before I knew who they were and unless things are written in stone; what's said one day is gone the next, doesn't matter how much time or effort is poured into it and/or how much you bank on something. I was foolish to think anything else.

    As for the rest yeah I'm just always staying busy; never a dull moment in my life really. Places to go, things to do, and a community to support!
    I restored your sig. Photobucket is being a major pita right now.

    Many thanks, I was eventually going to get around to fixing it, but you helped make my headache at least a little bit less painful.

    It happened to me as well. I ended up changing image urls in posts from 5 different communities that I have posted within in the last decade. I am talking about hundreds of images here. Not fun.
    Hiya Hayden, its been quite awhile! It's thomasco2013, I just got my username changed but I thought I should say hi seeing you online. Hope you're doing well and all!

    Hey Thomas! Thanks for checking in, and I'm doing very well! I haven't really dedicated much time to Cave Story lately, but I still check these forums daily and post when I have something to say!

    You're welcome! I'm so glad you're doing very well! And nor have I, I participate in the Discord server and that's really about it though! But nice to see you're around occasionally! I'll have to hit you up more, it's truly been too long, I meant to do this for awhile but life gets in the way haha.
