Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements Scholar Received for knowing a great deal about programming topics Achievements I know that the random intro sequence seemed to occur every time I booted up the game. I couldn't find anything else, though. kantackistan kantackistan Yep that's all there was this time. Glad you noticed. I can't remember if I activated it or not, but the prequel had one built in where it made the entire pallette turn Gameboy green - including all the buttons. That was the point when I realized I should take it down a notch... rando rando Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there.

Programming Strength Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Your best Project yet. wish I could play more awesome projs like this, but demo version of sb4 only let's you download one Project without paying. not worth buying a Japanese edition of a game that will be translated anyway. snail_ snail_ Power User QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest!

Achievements the japanese version is in english too now and the demo lets you download once every 8 hours kantackistan kantackistan Snail's right. I actually started this project on my English account, unaware that I was using the demo. Didn't realize until it was time to upload... As far as demos go it's exceptionally generous. (Nearly) everything is available for free. tcmine64 tcmine64 Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out! I'm still trying to grasp the basics.

Programming Strength It uses your Switch's current language. And kantackistan, what did you when you realized you were using the demo? Did you have to rewrite everything? snail_ snail_ Power User QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest!

Programming Strength Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Language won't change. I guess its stuck Japanese. kantackistan kantackistan I see. I suspect the demo's language will get updated eventually, though I'm a little surprised they didn't update both at the same time. Let us know if you're having trouble finding a menu item TCM. HTV, thankfully no! Nathaniel saved the day on that one. We transfered the files to PC as screenshots, then back through Petit Modem. And now according to SmileBASIC bylaws I must give him my amulet.

Express Yourself Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength What? That was a demo version? Do you really have to pay for the demo or are you guys talking about sth else? Cause I had to pay for the demo and then pay some more for that ticket thingy so i could download more stuff. kantackistan kantackistan If you have a Japanese eShop account you can download the demo, where you can download 1 project every 8 hours. And you can't upload anything. HTV04 HTV04 Forum Leader Hidden Achievements Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength What really sucks about the paid version of SB4 is that it's basically the demo but with saving enabled. You have to pay an additional $5 to get additional functionality for whatever dumb reason. kantackistan kantackistan It's not the most elegant solution, I admit it. But I respect what they were going for. Here's hoping the demo gets localized, it'd really increase our audience kilijelo kilijelo Mindblowing amounts of polish kantackistan kantackistan (That's also my answer to "What did your DNA test say?" and "Have you been huffing?")

Fun/humor/polish were absolutely what I was going for. Not sure if I've mentioned this yet but there's a secret if you change your settings to 1 Heart, Breaks Off, and Tempo 9.

I have no idea what they’re saying but the clapping gets the message through kantackistan kantackistan Thanks! I haven't deciphered a lot of the video yet, but they do say stuff like it takes all your concentration, and the Giraffe both amuses and confuses them. Also I think I got this part wrong, but it sounds like they're saying that "the game's light background music makes people fall in love" - So you know, when you're trying to seduce someone go ahead and crank some Morality Corps Anthem snail_ snail_ Power User QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Amazing Contributor Someone thinks I'm an awesome person who has done so much for the community! Achievements is there a story behind Stella? kantackistan kantackistan Oh right, I didn't really offer any explanation for her did I? She's Stella the Tomato Duck. She likes breadcrumbs and hates marinara. (She was the only leftover character I had that also fit the existing hitboxes.) rando rando Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website It's kind of cute kantackistan kantackistan It's also a mild prank on my part. Those familiar with Stella wouldn't expect her to make cameos, especially compared to the more popular characters. Thematically she's coming out of left field. It would be like casting a Piranha Plant as a playable fighter... but ignoring everyone else from Super Mario. kantackistan kantackistan What would be your response if I opened up Versus Buffalo for suggestions when it came to designing new Minigames? I'm thinking something along the lines of this: You submit your idea as a mocked-up screenshot. No words, no descriptions, just a single image communicating entirely through visuals. Then from that single screenshot, I can tell right away if it's a good fit for a rapid-fire, no-tutorial game like Buffalo. And if it's a good fit, it gets added in with a future update.

I don't know if I'd be able to participate since I'm waiting for NA release of SB4 and also probably lacking programming knowledge in general, but I'd like to see what others come up with. kantackistan kantackistan To be clear, I wasn't looking for anyone to program their own Minigame. You could if you wanted, but for the contest I just wanted a picture of your idea. Draw your idea for a minigame (on a napkin, in MS Paint, whatever) and post it without any words or description. If I really like your idea, I'd do the rest of the work. kantackistan kantackistan Cool, sounds like a resounding "do the contest!"

Programming Strength Deep Sleep Hidden Website Still any plans on doing this? I've had an idea for a submission for a while now. kantackistan kantackistan Oh whoops, thanks for reminding me! I'll have to make an official post about it soon, but you can submit your ideas any time. There's no limit to how many you can submit, or any deadline. It's kind of like a suggestion box. All you need to do is post a drawing/screenshot/video/whatever of each Minigame you come up with, without any explanation or words. (I want to see if I can figure the game out immediately the first time I see your mockup, without having to explain the rules. Because then I know it's a good fit for a game that doesn't have tutorials.)

IAmRalsei IAmRalsei Forum Leader Hidden Achievements Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength it would be really difficult to do multiplayer mode and singleplayer would just be virtual buffalo 1 again kantackistan kantackistan Rgames, early on there were some experiments on adding netplay to the original version. The end result was... underwhelming. There were more than enough sprites to go around, but at 240p the screens were too small to share with other players. and if you couldn't see what everyone else was up to, it really didn't feel like multiplayer. Most importantly, there just wasn't a "market" for it. The demographic of "I have 1-3 friends in the room who also have Smilebasic on their 3DS" is really small. And if you really did want to compete with them, all you would have to do is press start at the same time. snail_ snail_ Power User QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Amazing Contributor Someone thinks I'm an awesome person who has done so much for the community! Achievements This is great, but it seems very hard to introduce the mechanics to people who haven't played Virtual. Playing solo is the easiest way to learn. Will there be a Virtual port? kantackistan kantackistan Sorry if I wasn't clear - You can still play Versus Buffalo solo. At which point it behaves just like a Switch-remake of Virtual.
