Status update of N Masters, Makendou Central, and other projects

Here’s an update on the status of each of the projects/sites that I manage. The short version: Everything is still alive and updates and/or changes are planned for each thing. The long version is below:

N Masters

N Masters will be going through some big changes. I still haven’t planned well what will be done but one thing I know for sure is that the focus on news is going away. It’ll focus more on being a community for Nintendo fans. You can already see the idea partially with how I designed the latest Card Generator for the first Splatoon. The whole thing needs an upgrade, though, and more games will be added too. There’s other plans and ideas for N Masters too but I won’t talk about them until I really define how it’ll all work out.

One thing I can say for sure is that the temporary account system that was used for the first Card Generators will be going away. Everything will be managed through the SMF account system, like it is done in the Splatoon one. More news about it will also arrive later, but the idea is that everyone who has an old card and wants to keep it will be able to login to their forum account and merge it with their current card. Also, leveling cards may not be a feature in the newest card generators.

Makendou Central

As still pointed out in the site’s homepage, Makendou Central is under hiatus. The biggest change that Makendou Central will receive will simply be a visual redesign, the basic idea behind the website will still be same one. There will also be some reorganizing of the site’s sections just to make everything easier to browse around but no content will be removed.

NovaFan Games

The site will probably be redone, or at least visually redesigned. (It’s a WordPress install so it’s just a matter of deciding how it’ll look and finding the appropriate style/theme. 😛 ) Behind the scenes, though, there’s been some work on a future project. Can’T say much about it yet, though. There’s also some work being done for one or two smaller games that may eIther be released as miNi games or simply as prototypes that I used as programming practice. These mAy include references to the bigger project, though.

Finally, expect, Makendou Central to be the first website seeing these changes since I will also use that as practice for N Masters. NovaFan Games updates will come as soon as I feel they are ready and are unaffected by the website updates of the previous two.

First Play – Mega Man X Legacy Collection (Rockman X Anniversary Collection)

Now I understand why the collection is cheaper outside of Japan. It’s incomplete. The Japanese version has everything the US/European version has plus the actual real Japanese openings and ending songs.

As mentioned in the last past, here’s a new “Look At”, this time focusing on the also recently released Rockman X Anniversary Collection Soundtrack. (which is pretty much the official soundtrack of Mega Man X Legacy Collection, in case you hadn’t noticed. )

A couple of old Mega Man ZX wallpapers

Here are a few wallpapers I made quite a while ago. I think these were done before Mega Man ZX was released outside of Japan or maybe even of when the games had just released or were about to be released in Japan. Anyway, I just know that they are quite old and you can easily notice it based on the resolution of the files. Widescreens weren’t even common yet. XD

Since there are several of them, I’ll be linking to each of them inside this post. Each wallpaper will also have a link to a backup on my personal Keybase.
