    Moving Forward

    Hello. I’m ShadowDraikana, although some may remember me from my old handle, Slimy Slug. As some of you may know, I am now the new acting administrator of Rock Raiders United and have been made responsible for the rebuild and safeguarding of the forum. First, I want to apologize that it has taken so long to get anything off the ground. It has taken me some time to get my bearings and to determine a plan to best move the forum forward, given the practical mechanics of how the site is operated. After carefully evaluating the situation with the old moderation team, I have decided that it might be best to start with a clean slate, focusing on transparency and improving communication and site usability. There are several reasons for this, the most important of which are the concerns that have been raised about how the forum has been moderated throughout the years. RRU’s moderation has left a lot of people feeling unheard and dissatisfied. This is something that needs to be fixed going forward. Although I have decided not to introduce a new moderation team at this time, I do realize that engaging with the community to improve the site and allow for its continued operation is the job of more than one person. With that in mind, I am considering bringing another individual on to the administrator team to help me with the day-to-day running of the site and to partner with me to rebuild the relationship between the moderation staff and the community. Currently I do not have any specific plans related to this, but will be asking for feedback from the community as well as potentially accepting applications for the position. More news to come regarding this in the coming months. Regarding the thread created by Cirevam to address recent events, I have decided to move it to the Community Discussions section of the site. You can find the thread here. It will remain open for civil discussions. Anyone that wishes to speak about the situation is asked to post their remarks or questions there. Posts may be merged with this thread if they happen to be posted on an unrelated topic. It is my aim to push Rock Raiders United forward, and I hope very much you will give me a chance. Please be on the lookout for follow-up announcements to come in the future. Until then, ~ShadowDraikana

    Secret moderator Neox

    Neox was an account Cyrem had for performing admin tasks or doing certain things without logging into his main account, as you've pointed out. I did not do this primarily due to issues with the permissions on some forum account groups, and because I did not want to remove the content credited to the account. However, I realized now I could remove the account while leaving its accredited posts, so the Neox account has been deleted with its posts remaining in place. To answer the last bit, there are no further users with moderator access to the forums. A further clarification I would like to mention for those who noticed: the account login under Neox for October 3rd, 2022: this was me logging in with it briefly to determine what it had access to and trying to understand what was going on with permissions at the time (as I mentioned permissions and group issues above) Thank you for not make further jabs and letting me respond first. Yes I am going to respond to yours and other's questions in the announcement thread soontm, life allowing. I will be elaborating on what is currently going on with the website, why I was absent, etc. I had time to sit down again and wanted to clear this up before it went any further.

  6. I don't know how active this forum will be in the long-term, but I just wanted to write that I still make Insane Raiders themed comics once in a while (the most recent ones are from this December). They look simpler and aren't in colour, but they are still filled with madness! Here are all the comics in my gallery on DeviantArt: https://www.deviantart.com/arthuriel/gallery/50994783/insane-raiders

    I suggest using all marketplaces to find the best deal across all of them. Bricklink should have the most and best-standardized results.

    Knightmare-athon ported to Mario Kart DS

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF6pL0tk7TQ This is a direct port of the original Knightmare-athon model extracted from the game, ported into Mario Kart DS. The vertex colors are the same as they are in the original, although I had to manually assign the materials to each vertex as the .ply exporter tool does not support materials. I finished this port a while ago, but I had forgotten to post it here. You might notice that the UV's on the mountain material are misaligned, and this is due to the vertex offset limit of the DS. Because of this, I had to remap it, but everything besides that material is completely original. For clarity, it is possible to modify the checkpoints in Mario Kart DS, but I did not do so here as the course would never work on a real DS (the original course model is about 6000 tris when the limit of displayable tris onscreen at once is 2048 for the DS). The music is edited over the video, but thanks to the N64 using real-time sequences for the music, it is theoretically possible to actually port the original song over by extracting the samples and sequence from the game. (BTW, if this is in the wrong subforum, please move it, mods.)

    Tutorial: N64 JAM Extracting

    I just discovered how to extract the JAM file from the N64 version of LEGO Racers. Here's how I did it: Acquire LEGO Racers N64 rom. (You're on your own here.) Make a backup of the rom just in case you overwrite it by accident. Open the rom in a hex editor. I used HxD. If you don't see "LEGORacers" at the offset 0x20 (dec 32), use Tool64 to change the rom to Big Endian format. Search for the string "LJAM" and find the second result. Delete all data before the second "LJAM". Save the file as something like "N64LEGO.JAM". Extract the JAM file using a JAM extractor. I'm not sure how much of the data on the end is unrelated, but the extractor completed successfully for me. No, the N64 JAM cannot be used in place of the PC one. I have, however, used the circuit files from the N64 JAM on the PC version. Moving objects are glitchy though. This method also works for extracting the JAM from Paperboy on the N64.

    Tutorial: N64 JAM Extracting

    I'm really wondering how to do this for the PSX jam. I loaded up a ROM into HxD and deleted all data before the LJAM string (strangely, there was only one LJAM string). When I tried extracting it, the extractor couldn't do it.
