an image thread.

This is a thread to share miscellaneous interesting/inspirational/ineffable/rhinoceros images you happen upon!

This is a game called Kuma Uta. Apparently it's exactly what it looks like.

Missing-texture bug for a "high-def" mod for Half-Life 2, which also seems to inexplicably integrate a "sexxxy Alyx" mod (bringing to fruition what was tragically prophesied in a Gamer's Quarter article a few years back.)

On the other hand, I think this bug is actually kind of gorgeous. Found on Whacked-Out Ultima IX.

I'm glad dess mentioned Bad Hacks recently, because I'd completely forgotten about it. It's hard not to appreciate the sheer dedication of someone who would spend hours and hours inserting dicks and swears into Link's Awakening.

For some reason this image entirely validates the existence of a Fifth Element game for me.

Barkley remains a strong contender for my game of the year.

WarioWare D.I.Y: The Last Hurrah

On May 20, Nintendo will put an end to DS and Wii Wi-Fi Connection functionality, and with it the last Nintendo-sanctioned method of transferring WarioWare D.I.Y. wares for distances of over 65 feet. Before that happens, let's make and swap as many microgames, records and comics as we can!

Friend codes (DS):

Sergio (1): 2537 1140 5873
Sergio (2): 3140 1088 2254
Duncan: 4815 1511 7637
SpindleyQ: 1763 5139 9796
snapman: 0088 4880 2877
Cycle: 3569 6204 9809
racarate: 2796 5299 8891 [updated]
SomniLottie: 0606 0831 5982

Important Update: it is apparently impossible to register new Wii friend codes, so that option is now off the table. :(

If you want to be added to this list, send me a PM with your friend code!

See also: friend codes previously posted on the site (not guaranteed to still work)

Submitting to this event

Items in your warehouse are available to download for everyone you've mutually swapped friend codes with, but I'd appreciate notifications of anything made specifically for the event. You can also submit game pages for them here on the site if you want!

I plan to convert and archive all submissions as .mio files for posterity. I will also accept direct .mio submissions from anyone with the ability to make them. If this event takes off they could see release as the Glorious Trainwrecks WarioWare D.I.Y. Pirate Kart, which I'll worry about the logistics of later.

Potentially helpful tools

If you want to share your work as .mio files, or do additional editing on your computer, these tools could help! They typically require a flashcart, emulator, or access to your WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase save file.

  1. DeSmuME is capable of emulating WarioWare D.I.Y. almost perfectly! I'm sure that only members of this upstanding community who already own the game will choose to seek the ROM for use with the tools below. Also, if the tutorials are boring you, skip them with my DeSmuME save file (comes with a bunch of submitted games as a bonus)!
  2. miotool by yasu (Ctrl+F 'miotool' to find) allows you to transfer .mio files (representing games, records and comics) between your save file and computer. On the same page, mioedit (Ctrl+F 'mioedit' to find) can be used to edit a game's internal assets and presentation. I used it extensively for Eat a Baby!
  3. bobmcjr is currently developing a tool with a wide variety of uses! It currently allows save editing from a wide variety of input formats, some batch dumping, and even MIDI export for records! Follow this thread, or download the latest version here.
  4. CrygorTool is similar to miotool, but doesn't subtly inject the text 'yasu' into everything you run through it. May be useful if you experience issues with the above tools.
  5. Combining DeSmuME with LICEcap has allowed me to make some pretty sweet microgame GIFs. I'm happy to make GIFs of submitted microgames on request for those unable to.


  1. In order to connect your DS to the internet, you'll have to access a router using WEP encryption, an outdated encryption method that you are almost certainly not currently using! You can also make it work by just turning off wireless security entirely.
  2. Your friend code can be found (after connecting to the internet at least once) under Distribution Centre > WFC > Friend Settings on the top screen.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to add answers here!

Baby games

So my son turned one year old yesterday! We got him a videogame console for babies.

Now I dare you to look at that thing and not immediately think "Baby Pop'n Music." It is obvious that the giggly Baby Einstein "smartridges" (Seriously! That's what they call them!) are only of limited interest. I'd originally thought that it might be interesting to write software directly for the unit, but it soon became clear that I would have to do a LOT of reverse engineering work -- something I don't have the time or experience to do properly before my son grows out of the thing.

Then I realized that the interesting thing is not the system itself, but the controller. The controller is a very simple IR transmitter, like a remote control. And you can pick up IR receivers for PCs for under $10 on eBay.

So if I pick one of these things up, and write a simple program to convert these IR signals to keystrokes, I could very well make videogames for my 1-year-old son in Klik & Play. For that matter, so could all of you! Kirk just DID!

You guys, you have no idea how exciting it is to think that you could make toys for your child that aren't obnoxious. Every toy on the market has a sound chip in it that talks to my son in a sing-song voice about how fun counting is, and about how fun the alphabet is, and about how fun opposites are, and about how fun manners are. They repeat themselves endlessly. They stunt the imagination. Some of them even tell my son they love him. I have inanimate objects in my house that tell my son they love him!

I can do better. This is my next project.
