too bad I can't access the site while using it (since it's unregistered tehnically)

srsly guyz, this stuff is awesome. I hate vista so much but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Windows 7. Everything runs better, it doesn't take up as much processing power as silly vista, AND its got cool sets of desktop images that like change every 5 minutes to a set theme!

so screw vista and xp, and definitely screw gerbil and his silly linux!

Go download and beta test Windows 7 NAO!

oh wait, actually I just checked the site and they closed the download to the public...but you should still try and find a way to obtain it....somehow. IT IS MOST DEFININGLYINGLY WORTH EVERYTHING EVER MADE EVER!

Wikkity! / Need a good paint program
« on: October 16, 2007, 05:18:33 am »
I'm not sure how it happened, but MS paint no longer exists on my computer (as well as Minesweeper :( ), so I've been looking for a nice simple, yet effective paint program to download. I've already tried Gimp, paint.Net, and paint ultimate, and while they certainly have an array of features, I really just need something simple (as in I am dumb and don't want to deal with these complex programs)

My problem with these programs is that I'm finding that they make simple tasks (such as filling in a portion of a picture with a certain color, or even highlighting and dragging a part of a picture) incredibly annoying to perform. MS Paint was nice because when I wanted to fill in a black bordered square with the color blue, I could do that, or if I wanted to drag a portion of the picture to somewhere else, no problem.

So does anyone know of any simple paint programs that I could use...

or better yet, does someone know if I can re-obtain MS paint from somewhere?

EDIT: OOOOOOR, if someone wants to draw a really cool looking spaceship from a top down perspective (64 x 64) bitmap, that would be REALLY neato :D

General Sonic / How stupid can they get?
« on: May 11, 2007, 07:41:20 pm »

Please, tell me for my own sake, tell me I'm missing something, that people this stupid don't really exist... was it really that hard to note the sarcasm in my post? That, or maybe they are just hopefully bad at being sarcastic as well.

Well then again, they are both Gamespot accounts...

Gaming and Grazing / New Competition Site (Diddy Kong Racing)
« on: February 22, 2007, 04:22:20 pm »
check it out, a new site for Diddy Kong Racing (N64 version) is up and running

It kind of reminds me of the very early days of TSC. But anyway, they are in need of members / support, so drop on by and join the fun. I know there are at least a few others here that play DKR competitively (like...Groudon >_>)

Competition Central / I'm going to pull a Cybrax/Rayku probably
« on: December 26, 2005, 12:48:57 am »
In all honesty, I've lost interest in competing in the sonic advance games. Even Advance 1!  Same with Metroid Zero Mission >_>

You've probably noticed that I've been inactive for a while. It's probably going to stay that way for a while, maybe even forever. I'm not saying I'm retiring, it's more like a "I'm not playing unless I WANT to play" sort of thing. It just doesn't interest me

So perhaps one day, I will regain interest like Rayku and Cybrax did to Sa2b, and come back to compete in the advance games (and adventure maybe :o). Until that day though, you won't see another record from me.

so goodbye...sort of. :o

Leaderboard Disputes / Well that's a little odd..
« on: December 07, 2005, 10:31:05 pm »
it's not everyday that you see someone beat 2 records that have been up for no more then 15 minutes. To add to that, Douglas beat em by a whopping 5 seconds!

Did I miss something? Are there like, tons of records that you haven't submitted yet Douglas? Or... >_>

Meh, probably just making a big deal out of this. I just found it intersting is all...

EDIT: Also, congrats to mike for being the random champ :D

General Sonic / Sonic Online Competition
« on: October 09, 2005, 05:10:54 pm »
Sonic Cage Dome is hosting a sonic competition online through Gens

it's basically just a knockout tournament. Last person standing wins teh tournament.

The site seems to of just started, and as a result is quite small, but I think it's growing slightly bigger everyday

It's also probably a good way to promote interest to TSC, since SCD is all about competiting against others, just online rather then through time attack

Their banner lies though. Look at what it shows on TSS message boards :(

It's probably not a big deal now, but it might be later. Anyways, just thought I'd post this up incase anyone was interested in pwning some newbs to make themselves feel better, that's all >_>

EDIT: Ack, I thought it was still going on, but apparently it's already over? The sites really strange to navigate through. Oh well...they might have another one I'm sure. so keep your eyes peeled, or something.

General Sonic / The SADX picture quiz topic thingy
« on: July 23, 2005, 12:36:15 am »
SADX Picture Quiz


er ya...well I'm bored...and chances are that you are bored too! That's why I've made this lil quiz topic. What's that? Have I gone crazy? Why of course not you silly jackrabbit!Now listen's how the game works

The game consists of several rounds. Each round lasts usually a few days. During each round, I'll post pictures of characters in certain locations throughout the game. Sometimes I may only post 1 pic, and other times I may post as many as 5 pics! Your job is to complete the following objectives for each round

1. Determine which character I am playing as

2. Determine where the screenshot was taken


Example Pic

In this case, the answer is rather obvious...but it's just an example

1. Sonic

2. Station Square - In front of the train station



1. Send all answers to my PM. DO NOT POST THEM HERE!!!

2. Make sure you are very descriptive when telling me the location. If it's an Adventure Field or Action Stage, give me the name of the field/stage and a good description of where it is.

3. The point system works like this.
             - 1 point for identifying who was used to take the picture
             - 1 point for identifying where the picture was taken (EXACT LOCATION!)

There is extra credit btw. If you guess the wrong answer for a picture (according to my answers) but prove me wrong, then you will get 1 extra point. here's an example

Maybe an area that I thought was only accesible by one character is really accesible by another character. So in my pic, maybe I take a picture without the character visible anywhere and I assume that (through logic) competitors will come to realize that the character used to get the pic was character X because X is the only person that can reach that area. If you guess character Y, and I mark you down as wrong, but you prove to me that character Y can indeed reach that area, then you get 1 extra point (along with 1 point for guessing the right character and 1 point for the right location).

4. No cheats or AR will be used for capturing the images. Glitches may, but if they are used, you will be notified

5. It's rather obvious who's in the picture for action stages since the life icon shows who you are playing with. So I'm editing that out along with anything else that can easily give who you are using away (Knux and the shard locator, Tails and the course meter, etc)


ya...that's more or less it...after a few days...I'll post a new one...and a new one...and that'll be that

dunno who this will turn out...who knows...maybe even...*Gaspo* fun? Let's see!

Note: I'll put the points table in this post and constantly update as well as fix up the way the rules are portrayed since I've done a crappy job so far :(

good luck to all!

Wikkity! / The art gallery
« on: July 14, 2005, 06:34:54 pm »
This here be the art gallery. You can post ANY form of art that you have made. Here are the rules

1. It must be art (what isn't considered art anyway?)
2. It must be a picture of something YOU have drawn. Your mommy can't draw your picture for you....mmmkay?
3. It does not have to be limited to art in paint. It could be a sketch you made, or a frame from a funny flash, etc
4. It can be an edit of someone else's work, so long as you didn't just put a small speck of white on a white background andclaim the work 100% as yours. say where you got the work from and what exactly you edited that makes your picture unique from the original!
5. Have fun bitches :D

I'll start with a few. Some you have seen, other's you havent!
Note: all these were done in paint


Remember when cybrax was mean to all those wheel chair kids? :(

I made this card for dale when he was sick.

Then I got mad at him and made this card

This is supposed to be pyramid cave from sa2b in 2d. I forgot how the beginning went exactly, so I made it up, but then stopped making it due to lazyness and realizing how much time I was wasting :P. Everything is 100% by me though...not bad :D

A crappy GHZ gg level I made. not bad though :/

Note: Sorry to cybrax and dale for making them feel like bad people :(

to be teh 1337 t-bone player yo


ok so I went to camp, and my teacher showed me that if you just take the slide of a trombone, and put the moutpiece at the corner of your mouth at an angle and cover the opening where the horn would normall collect and move your slide, then you make a funny buzzing sound

plus your lips feel funny, cuz it's like...a vacuum or something

I dont know, just go buy a trombone and see foryourself! You'll be entertained for hours!

Beef / The Sonic Center Things to do list!!!
« on: December 14, 2004, 11:29:55 pm »
Rolken's Things to do list
Score & Ring values

The Color System

Red: Highest Priority! Do this ASAP!
Orange: High Priority. Will help the site out much. do this soon
Yellow: Contributes to the site in some way. Complete these if you can
Green: Mostly consists of small features that make the site a slightly better place.
Blue: The least important of em all. Usually just cheap stuff.Only do this if everything else is cleard off the list.

- Basically, just get all the videos on the site back up...

- There can only be one red...vids are higher priority then this though. Once vids are done, BAM, this turns red. You know what to do though...this also must be done ASAP

Score & Ring values
- We need to give score and rings a value of some sort on TSC. I forget if we've resolved the issue or ignore this for the time being. I'll take this off the list if we haven't reached an agreement yet

Update. I know we are probably missing a few things so lemme know if I overlooked something and I'll edit it

Beef / Them records
« on: August 05, 2004, 07:36:28 pm »

so if you find any, post em here

Neo Green HIll 1:  21'01 (Hurra) Sonic

Sonic Advance 2
Hot Crater 1: 00'13"23 (LLCOOLDAVE) Sonic

Competition Central / Easiest, hardest sonic game to compete in?
« on: August 05, 2004, 06:10:15 pm »
I'm bored, so basically, its up to you to decide which game is the hardest to compete in, and which one's the easiest to compete in!

Quick run down of the rules

-make two votes, one for the hardest game, and one for the easiest game
-when voting, make sure you take all factors into your decision making
     (ex: difficutly of actual game, how many ppl are competing,etc)

EDIT: I'm getting rid of the nomination limit. simply because a poll would be useuless, especialyl seeing as how everyone is voting for sa2b!

Current Nominations

1. Sonic Adventure 2 Battle        (5 hard/1 easy)
2. Sonic 3D Blast                       (1 hard/0 easy)
3. Sonic Adventure DX               (1 hard/1 easy)
4. Sonic Advance 2                    (1 hard/2 easy)
5. Sonic 2                                 (0 hard/ 1 easy)
5. Sonic Triple Trouble               (0 hard/1 easy)
5. Sonic Jam                             (0 hard/1 easy)
5. Sonic Chaos                          (0 hard/1 easy)
9. Sonic R                                 (0 hard/2 easy)

Note: DONT CHANGE YOUR NOMINATIONS! ONCE ITS POSTED, ITS POSTED! so think carefully before you nominate. use this chart above to see which games have already reached the limit. and you can still nominate other sonic games, the list only has the games currently nominated

Gaming and Grazing / The Video Game Accomplishments Thread
« on: August 04, 2004, 02:38:40 pm »
Yes, thats right, just post any videogame accomplishments you've made here!
Here are the rules

1. It cant be a game from this site (in other words, no sonic games!)
2. Post any accomplishments you have completed that you feel proud of!

For example, do you time attack other games? Or have you beaten Timesplitter 100% with all platinum medals?

Tell us!

As for me, I haven't really done anything extroardinary. I have beaten alot of games 100%, but I havent really time attacked any other games. I have tried time attacking perfect dark, but its too damn hard

The best I can get on special agent for the first level is about 57 seconds. But the world record was like 44 seconds or something. I know they use that technique to move around faster...but does it really make a 13 second difference? or am I missing a shortcut? oh well

so ya, post any times for games that your proud of or any accomplishments! Some time later Ill post a list of games Ive beaten 100%but for now, I really want to see any major accomplishments you guys have made!

General Sonic / The best sonic center video competition
« on: April 29, 2004, 11:37:39 am »
There are soo many crazy videos in the soniccenter like Cybrax's and SM's that just make you drop your jaw and drool all over your keyboard!

Anyway, the reason why I made this topic is cuz Im bored.

So this is part 1

in part 1, you get to nominate the craziest video/s of your choice. You can only nomintate 3 videos, and you can't nomintate your own videos!

After everyone has nominated three videos, the top five videos with the most nominatios will be put up in a poll. then simply vote for your favorite video (you can vote for your's this time)

The ony with the most votes is the craziest video at soniccenter! yay!

EDIT: I realize that there may be some flaws with this system. SM, you know what I want, I just dont really know how to organize the rules. Are they fine, or do you want to change a thing or two? I suck when it comes to organizing things like this...

Competition Central / Sonic Heroes Challenges
« on: April 19, 2004, 07:11:23 pm »
Yay, I've started challenges for sonic heroes at the gamefaqs boards

here is the exact link

Most of you are clueless to what I'm even talking about

I don't feel like typing, so just go here and read the rules to understand what your doing

I highly encourage you all to compete in it!

Best of luck to all! :)

General Sonic / Official Fan game time attack topic
« on: April 05, 2004, 11:57:36 pm »
Until Rolken adds them to the site (if he ever decides to), I think it would be best if we kept time attack records here, if that's allright with you all. Im not very far in Time Attacked, so someone else can take care of that. Right now, I will add a table for Sonic Robo Blast 2. And hopefully someone else will add a table for Time Attacked.

EDIT: I'm adding all the times to this post for easy access to see who has what record for which game! This topic is dead...but I'm nyah!

EDIT 2: Added Gamerdude's ET:CF game. Kick ass, but it's still a demo. It's the version from sage, so use that one unless a newer demo comes out :O

1. Does anyone know if there is an emulator that can record videos (at least for game gear games) Or in other words, record what's going on on the screen at the moment. Or is there another program that can do this? (I would prefer a gba emulator that could do this too!

2. I understand that Divx Codec is required to watch the videos, but the link in your faq sections doesn't work. Just thought you should know
