I have a few news to communicate. First we got a new Sub-Forum, the Returner's Hideout. It's going to be mainly a Community Hub for events, streams and challenges. B-Run is going to take care of it as the moderator. For now thread posting is limited to staff though if B-Run wants to change that, I'm all right with it. Everyone can reply to threads though. We are also slowly bringing back the calendar. I already coded a small widget that display the event(s) in the next 7 days. I'm going to finish updating the real calendar before Tuesday.

You probably also noticed the forums reordering and renaming. It was mostly done to regroup similar sub-forums with little activity. Name changes were purely cosmetic.

Finally I added 130 new songs to the music player. About 40 were already there in other playlists so that leaves ~90 really new ones. They are regrouped by album. There's new music for all style but mainly the SQ series is to dance, swing and rock.

Enjoy! Frog

 

Is it...

- Locke getting sick on the ship?
- Kefka's classic Son of a Submariner line?
- Crazy old man (Gau's father) ordering Sabin around?
- Dressing up Gau?
- Setzer yelling at Cid inside the airship?
- Stealing the merchant/soldier's clothes?
- The M-M-M-M-MAGIC!? scene?
- Ultros throwing Sabin into the Lete River?
- Siegfried being defeated after 1 hit?
- Turning the lights out in the Opera House?
- Gau making fun of Cyan's speech?
- Soldiers dusting off Kefka's boots?
- Mog ordering Umaro around?
- Botching the Opera Scene?
- Other?

We decided to changes the rules to obtain a project sub-forum. From now on, anyone can apply to get one. The admin team will analyze the hack developed and judge if it deserves its own space. Here are some guidelines to max out your chances of getting one:


1) The Project must be developed enough to have things to show and must be at least in semi-public active development. Meaning secret projects at 90% or a hack that has been started a week ago will most likely not meet one of these criteria, neither if you ask for a sub-forum after your first post.

2) The hack must have a significant amount of new content in one or more of those categories: graphics, events, AI Scripts, music, ASM changes. Using an existing patch or a Record Keeper sprite does not count as new content. I think this is our definition of a complete hack. Dialogues and other stats editable in FF3usME are excluded for the reason they are usually changed in every hack that exist .

3) The hack creator must have the intention of adding content threads to his forums. This includes but is not limited to Q&A, roster, story, statistics, background information, credits, sprite showcase threads.

If you want your own sub-forum, send us a hack demo and/or video trailer and/or text explaining your changes or just a message if you think we know already enough about the project. You can send your submission via pm to @Madsiur, @Gi Nattak or @JamesWhite89. You can also send it to themadsiur(a)gmail.com.



Note 1: We reserve the right to remove or close your sub-forum after a very very long inactivity, official project giving up or if we judge the project no longer meet most of the criteria mentioned above (the situation needs to be really bad to reach that point). On project completion or after a first official release (usually 1.0, beta release(s) excluded), forum will remain open forever.

Note 2: We reserve the right to be more flexible on the guidelines mentioned above. These are guidelines, not strict rules but meeting them overall will assure you of getting a sub-forum.

Note 3: Lockirby's sub-forum has been created with the old guidelines in place, it is staying even though it does not meet the current criteria.

We have set a new Youtube channel for the forum! We'll use it for tutorials, stream playbacks and other thing related to FF6 modding. While upload priviledges are limited to admins, we hope this will be a channel to feature and showcase the work of everyone and well as democratizing different aspect of the game modification. This is why everyone can and his encouraged to submit the following types of video to be hosted on the channel:
  • Tutorial (with comments)
  • Tutorial (with subs)
  • Full hack teaser
  • Specific hack, hack feature or patch showcase
  • Music creation (ROM hacking)
  • Sprite showcase
  • Hack review (preferably with comments)
  • Utility showcase / review / tutorial
  • Any of the above content for other Final Fantasy games or retro console RPG
 

What is not yet decide is if we want to host commented hack playthrough / LPs mainly because there are already many on Youtube. However if we have something well done and interesting in this category, we'll probably go with it.

We suggest for recording (other than emulator footage) to aim for 720p but nothing below 480p. We'll most likely not accept bad quality videos. If you are interested in submitting one in a near or more distant future, please send a private message to either @Gi Nattak or @Jameswhite89 with the following: link to raw / lossless video, description (mandatory) and relevant link(s) (optional). You can also send a link to a custom YT thumbnail if you want (image of 1280x720 preferably).

We are hoping this channel will grow with time and that it will become a complementary resource to the forum.

The sixth stream hosted by @B-Run will take place Thursday, May 12th from 9:30 - 11:00 PM EST [UTC -5:00]. If you are unsure of the precise time because of your timezone, there's an official counter here.

Stream address: https://www.twitch.tv/b_run_

It's still not defined what the next stream topics will be. B-Run probably has an idea but nothing official has been announced.

The stream will also be recorded to be put on the FF6hacking.com Youtube channel later for those who can't check the stream live.
