Hello everyone. It's been a while, and I feel I should give and update on things.
At this point in time I'm no longer really working on Super Smash Bros. Brawl mods, but this shouldn't be mistaken for not wanting to; I do check the site occasionally, but I don't really have the means to "complete" the mod as I'd like to right now as content I could convert or use has ceased quite a bit (this site is losing some big contributors). I can see that Project M characters still aren't site legal, and most importantly, I still have problems with porting Ryu's GFX meaning that I can't make him an EX cloned character... so even if I were still around, I wouldn't have much to update everyone with.
I was having a bad day and went to this forum expecting the worst (I've been sort of hiding from it) but I can see that everyone here is still the same loving community they were when I left. You guys are awesome
maybe I'll see some of you at a Smash convention some time? That'd be fun. If someone wanted to set that up then I'd probably come ang hang with everyone (I am East coast though, so that might not even be possible since most people I know here are West Coast or UK)
But yeah, at this point I'm not entirely sure what to do, and I'm still waiting to see what the site will allow, as beyond those characters I don't believe much was added to the build anyway (I think I added in another incomplete stage page... a Riolu slot clone to Lucario... a Black Shadow one slot mod where he uses the black bull punch... probably a bunch of glitch fixes that some might not even notice... and that's all I remember) so unless I'm mistaken, anything people have been circulating is still a ton of content and you're not missing out on too much. Or maybe I'm wrong and I did a lot more? Aha, I doubt it, it' been a while. I recently found my SD card with the build on it cracked, but I believe it can still be ran... anyway, I just looked at the site again and the only things I'd be able to do is add about 6 more stages that aren't recolors and are of build quality, and I'd add in one new PSA into it's own slot.
If a completely working Brawl EX Ryu is made and fully functional, then it'd help me past that hump, but PM characters are still a no-no so... :/ I know I could always just release it without those two characters so... we'll see. Ryu's a big deal as I think I've been one of the top guys for porting GFX... and I can't port his as I can't figure out where the Hadukens are (I checked the usual spots and looked at some related sub actions and whatnot to no avail). It'd be cool to one day check back and see someone's got it figured out.
And a big "we'll see" is all I can guarantee. I can't really be swayed on this. But I do want people to know that they aren't missing on too much more content anyway. I don't know what's being shared (nor do I personally care as I did my part in removing controversial material and anything else that's circulating isn't necessarily mine anyway) but it's probably closer to what I have then everyone might think, and given the time that's passed, people may have added in more stuff then I ever did.
Sorry if this post got some people hyped. I'm still not saying goodbye, I still lurk here, some of you still talk to me through other media, but I'm stuck and while I don't want to be stuck I also don't want to take risks so... here we are.
This was and still is one of the greatest sections of my life. I'll be around from afar. 'til then.
