That wasn't sauloFx's avatar, it was an edited version by me.
I used ascii art because I was to lazy to upload an image and as a result I had to reduce the resolution by a lot.
Find higher res pictures here
Well I wasn't exactly scared.
I was about to go to sleep and I didn't want to stare at a creepy face for a lot of minutes.

I'd love to know if there is a fix for this. I've had that problem too.
I don't think it has to do anything with the program at all.
It's just that gifs can't display more than 256 colors.
http://phil.ipal.org/tc.html

"The mistaken belief that GIF has a limit of 256 colors probably comes from the way GIF was first used when it came out. In the late 1980's, PC video cards generally supported no more than 256 colors. Image exchanges were becoming popular among BBS systems and the Internet and viewer programs were quickly produced. No one tried or needed to generate images with more than 256 colors since they could not be viewed on anything less than high priced graphics workstations. Programs that converted images to GIF worked up a number of methods to reduce the number of colors to 256 or fewer. Some actually did a very good job. GIF files were constructed with just a single image block, even though the GIF standard placed no limit on the number of blocks. Since there was no use for more than 256 colors, there was no use for more than one image block. This practice became effectively ingrained into the computer culture and eventually everyone "knew" that GIF supported no more than 256 colors. The fact is, the programs that generated GIF files supported no more than one image block, and thus didn't have a means to deal with more than 256 colors. The top image shows that a GIF file really can have more than 256 colors."

Also as some of you (might) know, I've made a TAS (Tool-Assisted Speedrun) of New Super Mario Bros. for the DS. So for me, the first thing I thought when I saw Mari0 for the first time was "This game would look freaking awesome if it was TASed somehow". What would you guys think? Wouldn't something like this be awesome? I'd really to make speedruns of the SMB mappack and community mappacks. Opinions?
I'm a little late on this, but that would be amazing! I don't know why, but I really like TASes (plural of acronym help plz), so seeing our best mappacks pushed to their limits would be astounding. I imagine something like 0'Brothers would be fun to watch, especially since it's one of the more frustrating ones.

And I would definitely be up for it myself... but having not done a TAS before, it would be a learning experience.

Just a heads up:
I'm not going to be using Steam every other week.
This is because I alternate between computers, as with parents every other week.
And this computer is not allowed to have steam. (For reasons I will not list)

So, me plus other LÖVE forum members are making some small doodles. I thought it'd be cool to share mines here:

Doodle #1
A mini-game around magnets and balls

Doodle #2
A ball's grid simulator (don't know their name, but it's very well-known)
Image
Image
Doodle #3
A Tetris-like show of falling blocks (or balls or hexagons or triangles. Your choice!)
* My favorite one!

Doodle #4
A simple 3D-ish simulator

What do you guys think?

It really depends on which laptop you get. Before mine died due to "I-still-don't-know-why-itis", it could handle a plethora of games. It didn't have the best of specs, but it still handled games like Terraria, Spelunky, and even Portal. Granted Portal needed some settings notched down but it still ran it at a decent speed. And none of those games caused any sort of temperature problems at all, even with the power settings on 'high performance'.

If your laptop does get hot though, there are always cooling fans available for them. Just got to search.

Do you mean whether I made it from scratch or ripped it from a game? I made it from scratch and loosely based it on DragzeeY's tileset as well as looking at some SMW stuff too.

Also, B-Man99, what is Death Note?

Death Note is an anime and manga where the protaganist(?) Light finds a book where if you write someone's name in it, they die. He uses it to kill criminals and tries not to get caught by L, the best detective in japan.

The Clave Story
Image
(Pronounced clah-vay. They're percussion instruments.)
Written by Bruan Stuckwool
___________________________________________________________________

Once upon a time there were 2 percussion companies that made instruments such as claves. Their claves in particular were very popular, because of the high quality and high demand. The owners of the two companies had been friends growing up, and would meet up from time to time, by chance or just because they felt like it. They would catch up, talk and laugh, and sometimes play scrabble. Now one time the two friends decided to meet at a really nice diner. Coincidentally, they had both accidentally brought one clave in their pocket. There was a kid at the diner that looks bored, so they gave him the 2 claves and he could make music with them.
It was a nice diner and the kid's parents managed the place, so the two company owners decided to come back every once in a while, bringing the two claves. The claves were different, but they complimented each other and made the music shine. By chance, a man at the diner dropped some business papers at the exact moment that the kid dropped a clave.
"By chance" meaning that any observer might have felt a bit of magic, combined with some slight insanity and jugs and jugs of snapple, in the air.
But anyway, one of the two friends went to pick up the clave for the young boy and then help out the man who dropped the business papers. When he went to pick up the clave, there was a piece of paper underneath it with "merge" in large letters. This reminded the one friend/company owner that he was considering asking his friend to marge the two companies. Looking at the clave gave him a brief chuckle, and then figuring it was a sign, he asked his friend what their thoughts were about merging the companies. The friend found it to be a great idea, and then they started discussing what to do with their different claves. After doing some tests, it was discovered that the clave that had been dropped fell very hard. At the same time though, it was almost as if when the clave had fallen, something inside of it moved and enabled the fall to affect it.What had caused the clave to fall? Ironically it was making music that had caused the clave to fall, ultimately leading to the other clave, which having been made differently broke away the coating which the one friend used. The coating was what had let the clave ring when hit with another to make the music. The fallen clave now only seemed to ring and make the music shine when paired up with the other, right in that diner. It seems no one, even the clave magic that had caused the fall and the damage, could have known the damage would go this far. The companies were merging though, and it seemed that the clave that worked with the damaged one would not be manufactured anymore. It was quite possibly the only one that someone would be able to find anywhere near the diner. That being said, the clave after realizing what its magic had done, suddenly saw how hard he had fallen and couldn't handle it, so another wiff of magic blew it away, out of the diner and into the street. The kid took the clave that worked with it, and had to go home because the diner was closing for the night. The clave that had fallennow lies right off a path next to the street. It would never be able to make music again, unless the other clave's magic led the young kid to it. But the other clave would have no reason to do that, unless they had fallen too. But what are the chances? That fallen clave is out on the street right now, but with how good the music had been, it would still fall even if it could go back and avoid it. It was worth every second and every bit of fall damage so to speak.
Technically it could still be saved, but only one thing could save it and keep the music. Hoping for the best isn't worth it.
...

...

My stories are fucking weird. The last one was for a global project (the "1 or 2 page fable" turned into a 9 page psychological epic about the society of the time period) and it ended with a dude spending the rest of his life saving rats from death and harboring them in his small blacksmith shop.

If it continues to play music, let it play music.
Otherwise, look back on it happily remembering the good things it brought you.

Or pretty much any song from a soundtrack from a humorous zombie-apocalypse parody strategy videogame.
Don't listen to "French Scrabble" either.
Because that's a song too.
