Community Announcements

-- There is a new contest which is based around game development. It is similar to the last one which involved game development and currently there are Infini, King Tetiro, Mamoruanime, Colbydude & sjegtp, Theforeshadower, Xiphirx, Kingknight, Darklight, and Xfixium. If you are interested in participating look for the topic in the Contests board.

-- The Community Project underway and currently we are working on how to map and what sprites will be good for the beginnings of the game. If you feel like you can contribute to this or would just like to give constructive criticisms on the contributions that have been put forward already, look for the topic in the MC Link's Awakening board which in turn is under the Projects board.

-- Colbydude is now a global moderator. In addition to his activity, Colbydude has some experience with web forums and whatnot already. Starforsaken101 has also been made a global moderator. This is due to her maturity, intelligence, and positive attitude. Welcome them both if you wish.

Getting Down To Business.
http://www.zfgc.com/forum/index.php?topic=33871.0
Quote from: ArcticFerret
Heya, I've got a project I'm working on, yet from a business standpoint, I'm clueless on where to start. At first I wanted to know how to register a domain name, but thanks to looking it up on this forum, i found godaddy.com, but its these other things I'm worried about.

First, I'll just come out and say it. I've been working on an idea for a new web-comic thats a new idea and not a fan-based project like my old Legend of Zelda: Link's Quest Sprite Comic was.

Basically what I'm curious about is, how do I go about setting up copyrights I'll need for this project. How much do they usually cost? Also, say I wanted to start up a business if this project ever gets popular enough for me to want to print and sell comic books of this comic or t-shirts like what some of the Web-Comic Artists have done over the last decade. How does one go about setting that kind of stuff up? I'm going about all this blind while trying to get the story worked on and straightened out. I doubt anyone follows my DeviantArt page here, but I've posted a few drawings of the characters that are going to be in this comic I'm working on.

Any help will be appreciated. Long live ZFGC. :D

My Pokemans, Let Me Show You Them.

I'm not really sure 'bout Pokemon Platinum, I hate how they always make you do everything in order, as well how they always tell you absolutely every little thing that anyone who played the game for five minutes could figure out, though that was the same for Diamond and Pearl as well. It just seems like this generation of games they don't leave anything for the player to figure out by themselves.

Soundtrack of the Week
Q.K.'s Various Soundtrack
http://www.zfgc.com/forum/index.php?topic=33873.0
Quote from: Q.K.
So, it's been a while since I've worked on any major audio projects. I kept busy mainly with the odd job here and there for games doing music or sound effects, some of which got published, others may not have..

Anyways, lately I've been lacking inspiration and motivation to work on music, so I thought I could make a topic like this to organize myself in. Topics like these tend to help, I've noticed, such as the CR soundtrack topic. Just gives me a place to organize my music and such, and gives me at least a bit of drive to finish it off.

Most of the songs here will be old tracks that you might have heard before, some of them under new names, but I'll be continuously trying to increase the amount of new material here. The theme will generally be the same - somewhat ambient, eerie, Japanese (or at least East-Asian) inspired music. Why?
I haven't been working on any games for a while, but I've had a few ideas in mind I *may* attempt at some point far in the future. Because of this, there won't be a strict layout for this "soundtrack" and I'll keep adding tracks as they come along. Without further ado:

1. <a href="http://binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Title%20Screen.mp3>Title Screen[/url]
2. <a href="http://binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Akamagaseki%20Shore.mp3>Akamagaseki Shore[/url]
3. Hoichi
4. <a href="http://www.binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Chrysanthemum%20Palace.mp3>Chrysanthemum Palace[/url]
5. Enryaku-ji
6. <a href="http://www.binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Courtyard.mp3>Shrine[/url]
7. <a href="http://www.binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Hanging%20Lanterns.mp3>Hanging Lanterns[/url]
8. <a href="http://www.binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Kuromori.mp3>Kuromori (WIP)[/url]
9. <a href="http://www.binaryphoenix.com/itohdaichi/Rainfall.mp3>Rain[/url]
10. The Cloud and Water Guest
11. Province of Kai
12. Mountain Pass

TLDR: The tracks in blue are finished or at least a work in progress, and can be listened to or downloaded. I'll be releasing all the tracks here for you to listen to individually as I complete them. This list will probably grow over time. As usual, comments and criticism, although there isn't much new material as of yet, is appreciated. Hopefully this will keep me motivated to write more music.


Big Question

Last week's question: Do you think that the DSi is worth buying?
Summary of answers: Not really even though it has some new features. The original Nintendo DS, the DS Lite, and in some cases the GBA were already adequate.

This week's question: If the Easter Bunny and Link's darkworld rabbit form from A Link to the Past got in a fight, who would win?

Link still has courage so he'd win hands down.

Neither the Easter Bunny, nor Link would win.

The boss hog Energizer Bunny would step in and own them both.

Link in his bunny form couldn't do anything. If he was so courageous, why did he take the form of a useless bunny? Some would argue he should've taken the form of a wolf...

Point is, the Easter Bunny would win, because he has radioactive feet.
