Hell yea B)


My mom bought me a sweater in the kid's section of some shop right, like the tag says for kids 13-14 years old and everything.... She wasn't 100% sure if it would fit and she asked me to try it on

and it fits perfectly lmao like the sleeves are maybe 2mm too short but oh my god they fit!! And I just tried on the kid's tights she sent me and like they're a little tight but they fit too I'm so small >w<

#1925085 TNT stealing art now?

Posted by Turnip on 18 November 2015 - 01:00 PM

Someone on deviantArt is saying that they stolen an adoptable she created and put it on a book item, but she hasn't said which adoptable/book it is yet

Looks like I got a response!! Wow, this item is really old. So Tumblr user krystallo made some adoptables way back in the day, and although the original Fire Gelert image has been lost to time, she found her Faerie version.




And TNT used the Fire one in the item Fire Pet Guide. Here it is:




Like there's no mistaking it, that's definitely her Gelert there :V And this item was released all the way back in 2008 too!! She said she didn't contact TNT about this though. Now I really wanna know if they've stolen more fanart for their items hahah

#1923440 TNT stealing art now?

Posted by Turnip on 09 November 2015 - 09:21 PM

^ TNT's response to being accused of stealing fan art. 
They must be afraid of another potential lawsuit.
Original artist:

Look how fucking badly they traced the original image though!! This bothers me way more than it should. 

I know it's an upscaled version of the item image but you can still see the the badly drawn lineart in the item. Come on, if you're going to trace an image at least fucking do it right!!! Tracing is REALLY not that hard, why do you think all those 13 year olds on deviantArt do it?
They really are acting like those 13 year olds who steal images on deviantArt though. Like almost exactly and it's pretty hilarious/infuriating. You don't just say "lol no one of our artists drew it XD" about an image which is very, very clearly traced!! This image has been around for years and has been seen by who knows how many people so they can't just pull some shitty excuse out of their ass for this one. Tracing over someone else's illustration, making some minor changes and claiming it's your own is art theft!! "and would never use it as our own, especially without permission from the artist" is a straight up lie too. Sure, I'm sure plenty of people over the past god knows how many years have uploaded the image without Kuitsuku's permission to the Beauty Contest/Art Gallery/etc (which is art theft), but the artist herself hasn't done that. So if they're using it because of that, then they've stolen a stolen image. Someone told the artist that because of the new staff, they probably thought it was official art or something like that. But whether they knew or not doesn't make art theft acceptable. And them going as far as to say that they created it in-house crosses the line. It's incredibly easy to reverse search an image and see where it originated. Don't lie about that shit.


I don't think it would go well if the artist went to court over this as she doesn't own Korbats, but it's still incredibly disrespectful that they did this considering she owns her work. She drew it, not them.


Why the hell would they react in this way though? Why would they just lie through their teeth? Did they really think people are going to believe them? Do they think a response as awful as that is going to make this situation any better? This is unbelievable. Who are they going to steal from next? Pretty much any other artist who has ever drawn Neopets fanart? I hope it never happens again but who knows what will happen if they're acting like this.
Also hahaha, they're deleting comments about it on their Facebook page which isn't surprising :^) You can't hide this one no matter how hard you try.



(Reposting wildmareep's gif for all to see:)


#1922996 Has anybody else noticed...

Posted by Turnip on 07 November 2015 - 05:06 PM



So Suta Raito is an old, old site where the artist would post her Neopets and other fanart to, right? I'm sure some of you are familiar with Kuitsuku's art. There aren't any dates on the section of the page this image is on, but it's probably around 10 years old.




You can view it here: http://suta-raito.com/neopetsimages


Have you seen the latest Korbat item that was released?




Wow they changed the tail, ear colour and shading in the wings a little. On one hand I can't believe that the current staff actually stole art for their images, but on the other hand I'm not surprised at all :V

#1921420 Pokemon V

Posted by Turnip on 28 October 2015 - 02:47 PM



Pokemon V is coming back! And we need help!


You must be thinking "what do you mean "coming back"? I've never heard about this before!".


Back in early 2009 this project was born. Over the course of the next year we all did a bunch of work together (and of course procrastinated and goofed around together), creating the story and game assets and the like. Around a year after the project started, we all tried our hardest and created our demo. It was all so much fun. As time went on the group started getting smaller and smaller, everyone has other things to do right? And eventually the project had to go on indefinite hiatus. Over these past few years I've been working on the maps in the game for fun but in the back of my mind still hoping that the game could be finished someday.


But recently, me and another dev were feeling nostalgic and wanted to continue working on this project again. So we made a little Skype group, got who we could from the old group back together again, figured out what exactly we need to finish the game, and now we're working on it again!!


We would really love to make this game sometime before we die. Unfortunately due to all sorts of reasons, we couldn't get everyone back together, which is why we're looking for people who are willing to put their all into the game just like us.



What is this game about?


This is a fangame set in a new region called Echon! Of course filled with all sorts of new characters and places to explore. It's being created in RPG Maker XP with Pokemon Essentials so it's a whole new game instead of being a romhack. Despite it being gen 3-style, we have included some gen 4 Pokemon along with the physical/special split and some other features found in the gen 4 games. Due to the size of the region we thought it would be best if we made a custom Pokedex, and so a comfy number of 280 Pokemon can be found in Echon. There won't be any fakemon in this, and as we started making this back when gen 5 didn't exist we won't be including any Pokemon or battle mechanics (e.g. triple battles, Mega evolution, etc) from those either.


What really sets this fangame apart from other fangames is that we're handling the story in a very unique way. I don't wanna spoil it so you'll just have to see what I'm talking about when the game is finished ;) We're also trying to make it as high quality as we can, to be the very best, you know?



So who do we need?



Sprites are one of the biggest things we need. As this is a gen 3-style game, we need gen 3-style sprites. It wouldn't make sense having XY-like models in the game right? Hahaha. We don't need all that many, but the sprites we do need are really important. We have a nearly completed list of sprites we need and character designs to work from so you won't have to worry about that.



Nearly all of the overworld maps created, but now we have the daunting task of creating interiors. Even if you haven't mapped before that's okay, I can teach you how to do it. I'll also be making interiors with whoever helps out so don't worry! You won't be doing this alone!



Our old musician is up for helping us out again, but I don't think it would be good at all if we pushed all of the work onto him!


NPC dialog writers

This region is a pretty good size, and an empty region wouldn't be fun at all.


Help with creating trainers

It wouldn't feel right having a Pokemon game without trainers, right?


When the time comes we'll also need help with balancetesting. The more help the better.


Also, if any of you have any experience with the programming language Ruby, there is something pretty big we need help with and would really appreciate it if you could help us out.


Even if you can't help out, that's okay! If you know anyone who can it would be fantastic if you could point them in our direction!


Just to let you all know, as much as I would love to, we can't pay you for your work. This is because we are working with copyrighted material. There have been instances where Pokemon fangame projects have been sent cease and desist letters because they've gotten money involved with their project and we certainly wouldn't want that happening to Pokemon V as well. To avoid this we aren't allowing money to come in contact with this project at all, not even donations for keeping the future website up.



You said you have a demo?


That's right! You can play the demo we created back in the day here:


If you're thinking about helping out then I think it would be worth checking this out to see how the game feels! If you're using OS X or a Linux distro you'll have to use WINE to play it. As this is just an emulator you might run into some bugs that don't exist in the Windows version, for example I believe someone had issues running the audio while playing the game in WINE.

(I would recommend saving before fighting the gym leader though. We had a script which would send some game information such as party Pokemon and levels to our site so we could work from it. But since the site isn't up anymore, if you beat the gym leader you might get stuck in a loop where the game tries to send the information but restarts after failing. But sometimes you can beat the leader without this error happening! So it's best to save beforehand, just in case. Also your anti-virus might not like the fact that this script is in the game but there's nothing to worry about.)


We're using Skype for development discussion now so if you want to help out, send me a PM with your Skype username and I'll add you to the group!


If you want to keep up with development news, I created a new Twitter account for development shenanigans which I hopefully won't forget about. You can follow us here!


We'll make a real website Soon™



Thank you so much for reading this! It really means a lot to us! If you have any questions, just post here and I'll try to help out as much as I can.

I REALLY GOTTA GET OFF MY ASS AND FINISH PLAYING IT!!! I'M LOVING IT SO FAR I got to the area where you meet the nerd dinosaur but it was getting late when I played it last and I haven't launched it since >w> Oops lmao


Oh my god the music is so good though, it's worth playing it just for that. I really love the battle system they have going too!! Not needing to kill anyone is so nice aahhh

#1919158 stuff you don't understand

Posted by Turnip on 15 October 2015 - 06:14 AM

:o you're making a fangame? Is it with pokémon or fakémon?

Heh, yup!! With real Pokemon, and the team started making it back when gen 4 was still around so there won't be any hidden abilities or mega evolutions ^^ So it's based off gen 3 with some gen 4 Pokemon and moves/abilities/physical and special split/etc. I don't wanna upgrade anything to keep it as close to what we were gonna make originally. We made a demo back in the day and you can try it out if you want!!

(Since I'm the only person actively working on it I've been meaning to make a thread here to see if anyone is up for helping me out for a long time now. Just gotta make a proper list go see what I need help with)

#1898161 Windows 10 Tweaks + Bloat Removal

Posted by Turnip on 01 August 2015 - 08:56 AM

I have one driver issue with my D-Link wireless adapter not being recognised due to incompatibility with Win10 :( Now I have to either A: Move the entire office into the room with the router, or B: get a cat6 point put into my home office room -_- (both of which are a major pain in my arse). No issues with my nVidia drivers though, which is great :)

Awww man, what a pain!! Hopefully they'll release a driver that's compatible with it soon D:



Added opening .bmps and .jpegs in Windows Photo Viewer and preventing your contacts from getting your wifi passwords!!

#1897909 Windows 10 Tweaks + Bloat Removal

Posted by Turnip on 31 July 2015 - 08:58 AM

Thank you :3


Boot times are about the same for me. You have an SSD or HDD?


HDD ^^


Also hmmm, well I guess my graphics drivers installed fine when I was installing 10 since everything looks great and it's not broken, but now I'm trying to update it since it's an older version and the installer is just stuck at 0% :V I think it might just be the installer not working though since installers really, REALLY don't wanna work for me. I just wanna get my software on here lol



Added opening .jpgs and .pngs in the old photo viewer for people who are like me and don't really like the new default photo viewer, but can't be bothered to install other photo viewers ^^

Yes please!

Here you go!! The guide's here ^^ Hope this helps!!

#1897794 Windows 10 Tweaks + Bloat Removal

Posted by Turnip on 30 July 2015 - 03:37 PM

Here we are!! Some Windows 10 tweaks.
I noticed that this is a bit long, so to download all of the registry keys and other fixes I've talked about here, download the .rar located here!
In case that link goes down, here is a mirror.

If either of these links go down, message me or post here to let me know and I'll reupload them.


Start menu
Removing the tiles:
Right click and select unpin from start menu. If the tiles don't go away, go to the task manager (ctrl + shift + esc) and restart explorer. To remove the empty space you can change the size of the start menu like you would with a regular explorer window by dragging the edges.
Disabling web search:
Type in gpedit.msc and press enter, then go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Search, then enable Don't search the web or display web results in Search and Don't search the web or display web results in Search over metered connections.
Making it a little more minimalistic:
Open up the start menu and go to Settings -> Personalisation -> Start, then untick everything. Go into Choose which folders appear on start and select the ones you want.
Pinning programs will cause the tiles to come back.
There's also a program you can download called Classic Shell. It's a free program that allows you to change the look of your start menu. You can download it and view its features here:
Removing the search bar in the task bar
Right click on it and go to Search -> Hidden.
Remove tracking
If you're concerned about your privacy you might want to do this. If you're really concerned, you might want to use an open source OS instead of a closed source one like Windows.
Go to Settings -> Privacy, and disable everything. So everything in location, camera, microphone, etc. In the feedback and diagnostics section, select Never in the first box and Basic in the second.
Run CMD as an administrator and enter the following, one line at a time:

sc delete DiagTrack
sc delete dmwappushservice
echo "" > C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

I've seen some people have trouble with getting the third line to work, so if it doesn't just skip it. Now launch gpedit.msc as an admin, and go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Data Collection and Preview Builds and disable Telemetry. Next you'll want to go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> OneDrive and enable "Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage". Now go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Application Compatibility -> Turn Off Steps Recorder and enable this.
Launch Regedit as an admin and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection, then change change AllowTelemetry's value to 0.
Run notepad as an administrator, press ctrl+o, and now you'll want to navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc. Press the little dropdown menu in the bottom right-hand corner and switch from *.txt files to All Files, and select your hosts file. Add all of the addresses here into the file then save it.
Even by doing this, you still won't completely disable sending information to MS. SearchUI.exe still sends your keystrokes in chunks straight to Bing. To stop this, using a firewall of your choice (I've seen a lot of people recommend Tinywall), block SearchUI.exe.

Through a packet analyzer, someone found out that explorer.exe is sending TCP packets to a military base in Singapore. Why is this happening? Who knows but that doesn't sound too good. To prevent this, block the following IPs in a firewall of your choice.

And now you're done!!

Removing bloatware
Type in powershell in the start menu then right click and select Run as administrator (or press ctrl + shift + enter simultaneously). Enter the following, unless there are programs you want to keep then remove the line before entering it:


Bam!! Gets rid of all that crap.
Remove ribbon from explorer
Download the .zip here and run the application in it. Install the shell extension and select these. Restart explorer and it'll act just like how it did in Windows 7!
And now, registry stuff.
If you don't know how to make files like this, open up notepad, paste in the code and instead of saving it as a .txt file, select All Files from the Save as type dropdown menu and save as the type as specified. So if it says save as .reg, you would save an item as, say, buttholes.reg and it'll work.
Disabling the Action Center
Save the following as a .reg and run it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Disable the drag to reveal logon prompt
Save the following as a .reg and run it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Add confirm to delete, disable Cortana and stops some pointless services
Why did they remove confirm to delete?? I can't believe this. At least it still asks you when you permanently delete an item (shift+delete).
Save as a .reg and run.


Remove quickview from file explorer
Save as a .reg and run it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Removing OneDrive
Save the following as a .bat and run it.


Bring back the old calendar and time
Download this program, then go to Appearance -> Enable New Date & Time Panel, and untick the box.
Open .jpgs and .pngs in the old photo viewer
Save the following as .reg and run.
Thanks to Anonymous on /g/.
Make your computer fully shut down
Type in power lid in the start menu (if that doesn't appear, fast startup should be the same thing) and choose the "Change what closing the lid does" option. Press the little button that allows you to change unchangeable options (it's under the laptop icon), then untick the fast start-up option.
If you have a Gigabyte motherboard: you have to uninstall a program called "ON_OFF", just do this like you would uninstall a regular program. If you don't do this but disable the fast start-up, you're going to get a bluescreen.
If you want to disable prefetch and superfetch
Save this as a .reg and run it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters]

Prevent your Wifi passwords from being shared with Facebook/Skype/etc contacts
Press the little Wifi icon in your taskbar/system tray and go to Network Settings. Scroll down to Manage Wifi settings and untick everything.
If you want to use the old control panel rather than settings, just type in control panel on the start menu.
Deleting your Windows.old folder
Change the owner of the folder from System to Auth. User and you'll be able to delete it. If you're having issues deleting it this way, you can try deleting it through Disk Cleanup. You can also delete it if you run CMD as an admin, then enter the following command:

RD /S /Q %SystemDrive%\windows.old

Unfortunately I don't think there's anything you can do about the spacing in between desktop icons. If anyone knows how to fix this, please tell me and I'll update this!
Also, you might notice that in Microsoft Edge and the Windows 10 UI that the font looks like fucking garbage. This is because Cleartype isn't supported in these. Why? Who knows but I don't think we can do anything about it.
And there we go!! If you want to see what it's going to look like for you, this is what my desktop and explorer windows look like this now. Not bad, right?
If I missed anything then please let me know and I'll add it to this post ^^
