Re: Nintendo and free to play

theblackdragon

it depends on what kind of game it is... if it's a F2P MMO of some sort, i'm not a fan mainly because usually the good items are available immediately to whoever has the funds, e.g. you're not working for what you have. When I play a game and i'm up against someone who's better than me, I want the reason for that to be because the other guy worked harder and put in more time, not because he had more money in his bank account and was able to purchase a +50 Mallet of Hammering and +75 Shield of Awesome immediately upon signup. F2P MMOs tend to balance in favor of people who are able to spend more money on them β€” otherwise you're left grinding forever to pick up super rare drops, and at that point you're also fighting against god-knows-how-many other people to get those same drops. there's a point where it stops being fun, y'know?

F2P solo experiences I don't really mind as much, and some of them can be pretty neat. however, the game you're describing in the OP probably wouldn't interest me. idk off top of my head what would interest me, but i'm just not feeling a F2P Mario platforming title atm, lol.

@theblackdragon Going through the Source Code is always a good way to learn or grasp an understanding of advance code.

@theblackdragon, why would you want to see the pre-installed source codes? Were you going to try and manipulate the codes, or were you just going to try and mirror them in your own fashion?

I was attempting to figure out how to ask for user input and have it respond (ask a question? [y/n], user inputs y and gets answer A, user inputs n and gets answer B, user inputs else and gets something dumb) but after quite a bit of trial and error, i still didn't understand what i was doing wrong. i wanted to see how it was done in a different program, perhaps, but i couldn't figure out how to see their code because i was viewing them through Gallery Mode β€” in order to see their code you need to go in like you're creating a new program and then manually load them from there. :3

guys, just a heads-up β€” we don't care if you've got beef with people here, we don't expect everyone to love each other or anything, but please keep the drama off of NIntendo Life. acting it out in-thread is not kosher. No one's forcing you to add anyone who's added you already; you have the power to ignore them. Thanks in advance!

they actually do that quite a bit in their TV shows. it's funny because they'll credit the music in commercials, but TV shows are hit or miss.

Guys, I'm only going to say this once (and I wouldn't be saying it at all if I hadn't already had to delete something from this thread, so this message isn't solely preventative, mind you): if perversion is what interests you, please do your own research or find another forum to discuss your curiosities in detail.

Re: My comments are playing a very good game of Hide-and-go-seek.

theblackdragon

Considering the image was edited out by me, I'm assuming the comments deleted were by me or someone else acting in a moderatorial stance as well. It couldn't have been anything too awful since you weren't given an official warning about whatever happened (nor did i bother taking a screengrab before editing your comment), but chances are you should take a closer look at the Community Rules before you leave your next comment at Nintendo Life.

edit: wait, i remember what the image was β€” it was a facepalm macro. those have long-since been no bueno here at Nintendo Life, and I was in too much of a hurry to replace it with a cute dog image. :3

As for users deleting their own comments, we know this is a problem and Ant is working on it. If you're in an article, game, or review page on the main site, post a comment, and then try to delete it from said page it will briefly delete itself and then pop back up again. Some users have reported successful comment deletion via their user profiles (remember that your comments show up there too now), but if you can't delete your own comment(s) that way either, please let us know via Contact Form. Thank you!
