(Do you like the new avatar? Took me awhile to make, it did. The contrast between green, bright green, and yellow fits quite well to the name: “Elven Warrior”.)

Hail, I thought of a article related to Super Mario 3. Just recently I started playing the older games on Virtual Console, and in addition to finding out a few secrets to Super Mario 2, I noticed some cool facts about Super Mario 3, and how it is very irregular to most of the games. I know every game is unique, but there are some qualities in a video game that only come once, you know? So without further ado…

Inconsistency of a Busy Man

Chrono Avatar

Hello all, I apologize for the little bit of inactiveness around here, but I have been writing an article for Delfino Plaza, which is going sort of slow because I am not happy with it – it seems way too short. *Puts on reading glasses* ah yes, I’ll be uploading the Villains & Enemies page (sorry Bowser, there are too little images of you to have your own page, it is all about quanity) soon time soon, and I am about 26% complete in the Super Mario 64 Star Guide, you can’t rush these things you know! Currently the next course for me to write in the guide is course 5: Big-Boos Haunt (that’s right, I’ve covered course 1 – 4 so far, all with the additional 100 coin tips, sounds exciting, huh?), which should be fun, and I should be able to get done with that one fast because it is more of an simple course.

Well that’s it for now, the article may be up in a few days, I definitely have to tweak it more, hopefully Dancing Pianta will be able to give me some advice. I also might change the Author Avatar, but there is only so much one can do with avatars.

Super Mario 64 Star Guide, Upcoming Article

Excellent news! Delfino Plaza is bound to get more traffic because I am writing the Super Mario 64 Star Guide, and it is going to be fun because every time I play Super Mario 64 (about 3:00 PM Central Time) I will have a notepad and I will write notes of ‘what to write for Delfino Plaza’, like where 8 Red coin locations are, and well, basically just write all the Power Stars (in order, from Course 1 to 15).

Also, a Legend of Zelda fansite, Zelda Kingdom, is allowing me to post one of their articles, which I look forward to because they do write some pretty thought-provolking articles, in addition to being plain-old enjoyable. I may soon be writing some articles over there, as well.

Well there you have it! Also expect to see a Princess Peach page up in a few days.

The Contrast between Doki Doki Panic and Super Mario 2

Hello, I have found out only recently why Super Mario 2 is the blacksheep of all the Mario Bros. series, as the levels and enemies were exceedingly random at first, it turns out Nintendo had deeper intentions for this game.

“Stop running this script?”

A problem enveloped while I was uploading images. This happened last night when I was working, this morning, and a few minutes ago. When you make a Gallery for people to post inside the actual images, if you expect them to be organized and in proper order you adjust their numbers, all from 1, to…1000 lets just say (though I’d never upload that many images on one page). Well when I checked to fix them (I uploaded fifty-seven images total) the whole page lagged me down, everything was frozen, I couldn’t click on anything, and eventually an error popped up stating:

“Stop running this script?

The script of this page is slowing down Internet Explorer. Click yes to end this script. If this continues, your computer may become unresponsive.”

And generally I clicked [No] because I think if I click [Yes] everything I was working with wouldn’t save. WordPress has an autosave feature, but I still have my doubts if it would save in time. WordPress runs slow enough to begin with. There isn’t much left to say, I just wanted you all to know how things are faring my efforts. In good news, I published the fully-completed Mario page! Go and check it out, but you may have to wait awhile for all the images to load.

(Oh, and I suppose this could be stated as good news, my Grandma is searching for a book she has called “HTML for Dummies”, not to say that I am indeed a dummy, but it potencially could teach me HTML–the first coding knowledge that leads to another, and another.

Delfino Plaza Poll #7: Future Characters

Okay, a few things. One is that I am going to be busy uploading all the images of Mario, but like all gaming series, Mario is the main protagonist of Mario Bros., so, naturally he is bound to have the most pictures above all else, same goes with Link, in The Legend of Zelda series. Though once I upload and convert all of the Mario images into galleries, the rest should not even compare to half of the amount of Mario images that will be published. In other words: it’ll be an easy walk from there, though does take awhile and sometimes lags when you mass upload images >_> . Second, well, on to the poll of course! Read more…
