VinnyVideo Maundy Update Apr 17 2014, 10:27 PM

User Icon
Because I'm too busy hanging out all night with models to post an update on a Wednesday night. *

The "Suitable Module Not Found" glitch should be squished now, but if you have another problem uploading files, please let us know.

* This is not nearly as amazing as it might sound, so don't start assuming that we MFGG admins spend all of their time wining and dining people with way too much money in New York or Milan or something. We do that, of course - we're just not supposed to talk about it.

VinnyVideo The upload system is back in good working order Mar 30 2014, 8:46 PM

User Icon
Since the time MFGG moved to a new server, a lot of people have experienced difficulty uploading things, especially large files. Retriever II fixed the "The request did not originate from this site..." bug, so if you've been having problems uploading, please try again now. Again, if you experience any new problems with the upload system, please let us know so we can fix them.

Guinea Drawing Competition: Beta Elements Mar 20 2014, 7:39 AM

User Icon
The Spriting Competition of 2014 has come to an end!
Winner: Chaoxys
Runner-Up: Goombaking123
Top 5 (actually 6): Supah-Luigi, K16, UltLuigi, GravityGames
Have a look at the entries at the forums.

Right after this, the first Drawing Competition of the year has started. In it, you have to draw a picture that centers around one of the countless elements that were planned for a game but cut during development. You can have a closer look in the forum topic.

PLEASE NOTE: If you had trouble registering an account due to the Captcha not being loaded correctly, this has been fixed and account registration should work again like before.

Oh and then let's have a look at the new submissions:

VinnyVideo My annual backup public service message Mar 13 2014, 11:45 PM

User Icon
Backups are nice. Backups save your data from untimely hard drive failure, which preserves your sanity - which is good, because preserving your sanity is also nice. And when you preserve your sanity, you won't spend all day listening to Village People music!

Too many promising projects have perished when a storage device decided it was ready to go to Hard Drive Heaven, so back up your stuff. While backing up game source code is especially important, it's also worthwhile to back up game resources - particularly custom-made sprites and music, but also things you've downloaded from the Internet, since a lot of that stuff might be time-consuming to recover. If a file's important enough to warrant a permanent spot on your hard drive, it's important enough to be backed up, and since flash drives are so cheap now, there's no excuse not to perform regular backups. (Microsoft's OneDrive jazz is handy for Windows 8 users who are too lazy to copy important files manually, as is Dropbox, which works with older operating systems as well). This concludes my annual lecture on backups, a lecture I've been giving approximately once a year since the time I first became really active on MFGG. And the good news is you won't have to hear it again for several more months, while the bad news is you won't have anyone to blame if your hard drive goes kablammo at the hour of greatest need.

Guinea Spriting Competition: Tropical Freeze Mar 8 2014, 12:56 AM

User Icon
Are you a spriter? Do you want to contribute positively to the community? Do you want to show everyone what you got in you? And you think you can win one of 5 badges?

If you answered at least one of those questions with yes, go to the forum and participate in the first Spriting Competition of 2014, deadline on the 15th of March!

Important Notice: The lack of Donkey Kong themed submissions to MFGG indicates that many of you may not be aware of the fact that we DO consider Donkey Kong a part of the Mario family, as Donkey Kong shares a history with Mario and characters from Donkey Kong are to this day still appearing in strictly Mario themed games like Mario Kart, the various Mario sports games and Mario Party.

To avoid this misunderstanding in the future, the official submission rule set now explicitly mentions the Donkey Kong, Wario and Yoshi series as acceptable content for submissions. Also a filter category for the Donkey Kong Country series has been added.

And of course this means all your entries for the Spriting Competition can be submitted to our database afterwards!

We are looking forward to more Donkey Kong themed games and resource submissions!

DJ Coco Trivial News and Another Update Mar 6 2014, 10:56 PM

User Icon
Gee, I haven't posted an update in a long time. Admittedly, Zero Kirby has the better stories to post, though! Feeling a bit uncreative at the moment, let me just post some news for you: So Leonardo DiCaprio didn't win an Oscar and Putin invaded the Ukraine... oh, not the news you're interested in? You rather hear that there's a new upcoming badge set for MFGG? Well, I guess I can't tell you that just yet! Yoshi's New Island is just around the corner too, so are you going to get that game? I don't know yet, as I am not that impressed by it, but what was I keenly impressed by was Tropical Freeze. If you happen to own a Wii U, it's a must-have title. Just like Leberkäse (I had to put Leberkäse at least once in this update to confirm I am the real Coco).

Also, because Vinny gave me the suggestion to putin a Putin joke, here you just got it. Enjoy the update.

VinnyVideo LSF Update Feb 27 2014, 7:13 PM

User Icon
An update loaded with games from one of our more visible German MFGGers. In addition to his new game, LSF's Mario's Tiki Madness and Super Mario & the Elemental Orbs were both updated.

MFGG moved to a new server over the weekend. This shouldn't cause any major changes to your MFGG experience, although it might make things a tad faster! However, if anything seems to be misbehaving, please let us know.

For those folks living in the Northern Hemisphere, I wish you a Hoodie-Hoo Day full of joy and cheer. And for you unfortunate Australians and other Southern Hemisphere-ites, I pity your having to wait six more months for this important holiday!

Have an update.
