I actually started homeschooled, and started early enough to graduate last year. When I went into public school, they bumped me back from fourth grade to third grade so that I would be able to better fit in.

I would not recommend stealing from peoples service, My neibor was stealing bandwith from our router, and he got arrested! BUT! if you ask them, then pay for it, Im sure they would gladly accept, now all you have to do it get that anntenna extended to your Living Quarters
The capital letters "BUT" is kind of a trademark for but2002, and sometimes even with an exclamation point immediately afterwards.

Ugh. CSS works best when it's built into the <head> anyway.

I like your layout for the most part, Vincentval, but some aspects of it feel a bit redundant. For example, why put the roster both on the side and in a link on top?

Also, I have a smaller version of that logo if you want, so that it doesn't squeeze funny, if you want. Web browsers are not generally advisable for resizing.

Those lines are written in the page source. Didn't you see it?

I got this in a PM from RPGillespie
Quote from: RPGillespie
You should make your buttons (Q-Gears website) do something on mouse-over. Perhaps have a peice of Materia appear next to the button title? To me that makes a site a lot... funner?... to interact with. Kind of like NobodyImportant's site.
The idea is kind of nice, but I feel it adds bloat to the page; it takes longer to create and longer to load, with barely any added benefit. Not only that, but I don't actually know how to do that.

For the record, you don't need to PM me with this stuff.

I'm perhaps one of the youngest people here that knows how not to say "help i need patch for crash in chocobos racing lol plz".

I'm only 17, and I graduate high school in about two weeks. During the summer break, I'll probably be doing some landscaping to earn money for college.

Hmm... Probably. The Hi-res patch can also cause problems if you have a slow processor. Exactly what patches do you have installed?

What exactly does this do? Is it a patch to change the party into the turks or something?

I have redesigned the buttons on the sidebar, and the boring text at the top has been replaced by images, based on what part of the site you're at.

The project? Mostly.
The thread? No.

Now that Q-Gears is in development, there probably won't be much work on things such as this or other engine-improvements. All that's really left is things like NPC Reconstruction.

I think I'll make individual logos for each portion. The size was deliberate; I wanted it to line up with the logo on the side. I guess I can just put it lower, though.

Most of the ingame characters ARE the battle models. At least, the main ones are.

There is no way to prevent that. Besides, you are using somebody else's bandwidth that THEY ARE PAYING FOR. Frankly, I disapprove wholeheartedly.

I'm not sure which video is "biglight.avi", but if it's one that's on more than one disc, you can have the movies run from your HD, and just use the copy from a different disc. Or you could have them run from HD and just make a copy of some other one and name it "biglight.avi" so that the wrong movie runs but it still works. Or you could just take dziugo's advice and skip it, but that's less fun. :D

Eidos definitely knows about this site, and they have gone so far as to link to it. I believe Eidos holds the publishing rights to the PC version, so they'd have to do the complaining, which I doubt they will.

Troubleshooting / Re: Compressing the kernel2.bin

FF7 can only read the compression that the file already was.

What exactly are you doing to make it so big, anyway? Just changing shouldn't increase the size, unless you're also adding something, I think.

I finally got my RSS reader working. Basically, I got the aggregator (Feed2JS) put into the content of a cutenews post. Now all I have left to do is to replace the links on the sidebar with images, and replace some of the content with something a little less "demo" and it will be just what I'm going for.

You can still access it here.

edit: I just fixed the issue that was preventing HTML in the RSS feed from working.

edit again: Added button images for the sidebar, along with links to project page and forums. These are only temporary, because I don't have Photoshop at home. I will make better ones at school on Monday.

Different colors? Hmm... I could have FF7/8/9, but I have no idea how I'd do colors for Parasite Eve. That game didn't have a FF logo, and didn't have a color scheme to work with for the logo.

The alignment issue seems to arise if your window is too small. I tried it on more than one browser for Windows.

Ack. My server is having trouble working with the many RSS reader scripts I've tried. I can't test them this way. :(

Okay, I have a demo up. Access it here.

I haven't implemented RSS yet, and I don't have all of the other things finalized, but this is basically the look and feel I'm going for. The banner ad is a requirement of my host, and shouldn't be an issue if it is used.

Content management is done with CuteNews and can be accessed on the demo HERE. The username is "Test" and the password is "test". It's easy to use, but powerful enough for most purposes, so I hope it will work here.

The way it's set up, each page accesses posts from a different category, and so everything is done in the form of a cutenews post. This means that none of the actual content is hard-coded into the page, so it can be easily edited via cutenews. This includes, links, downloads, etc. all done in the same format.

I'm trying to make my design as simple as possible, as far as looks are concerned. Tons of CSS, along with CuteNews and what I guess is going to need to be a hand-scripted RSS reader will make totally different things look the same, and will allow easy editing of pretty much all actual content. I'll post a pic sometime this afternoon if I get a chance, and will probably have a demo by tomorrow evening. So far, I have it so that it will look good on a minimum 1024*768 monitor (vertical doesn't matter much, but horizontal is important) on most standard web browsers. I'm designing it to work with the logo I submitted, but it can easily be modified if a different logo ends up being used. Currently uses a mix of Verdana and whatever font is the default in the user's browser.

Since Sourceforge allows MySQL, it would theoretically be possible to move the forums here, but I would think that's a bad idea for now.

I don't know how to install more than one voice on the computer... My Mac has many already installed, but my PC only has one. Furthermore, I don't know if Win98 supports it. Anyhow, we could include a pack, if doing this, with a different voice synth for each character.

I'm using Runic MT Condensed. I compared it to Onyx, and I thought it would work better.

Runic MT Condensed.

While Onyx is quite similar, Runic MT Condensed is slightly more accurate, by my comparison. I especially noticed the letters "S" and "A", because those were the only ones also in the name "Q-Gears".

I scaled the font so that the letters would have the same height, width, and spacing as a normal Final Fantasy logo. I might make the gear bigger, though, to make the whole thing scale better.

I am. I am really into web design, and I hope that I can do well.
