  1. The issue I'm having is nothing drops energy unless I'm below 99 with 0 tanks left. I sat and fought him for a good 20 minutes with only the orb on his back left, successfully dodging all his attacks, but I could never get over ~110 energy because his hands would ONLY drop energy once I was in the danger zone, and usually just a purple +10 at that. This goes for both the hands he shoots at you, and the hands that grab orbs from the side of the arena. If I have a full tank, even if I'm at 0 energy, no power ups will drop. This happened in two separate attempts before I called it quits for a little while. I'm not making any huge mistakes or anything, it just seems like I'll never have enough energy to finish the fight with the required hypermode uses unless energy powerups drop, which seems like it should be happening but it isn't.

    On a sidenote I thought both the other prime games were FAR too easy, I don't think I died a single time while playing either of them through the first time, so I don't know why this is giving me so much trouble.

  2. Ok, am I doing something wrong?

    I'm having lots of trouble with

    Mogenar on veteran difficulty. How many energy tanks should I have for this? I have 4 right now but I'm always completely out of energy after the 3rd orb slot is destroyed, and it seems like the replacement orbs he pulls to his body only drop energy if I'm below 99. The only way to damage him is with hypermode shots in an empty orb slot, correct?

  3. I'm having a bit of a problem with Chipamp. It works fine and all as far as playback goes, but it seems to have screwed up winamp's supported file type recognition. Whenever I try to open a new file, the dialog box is always empty and I have to manually go to "all files" in the drag down box to see anything.

    When the default "all supported types" is selected, it displays nothing, not even normal audio files like mp3 or wav. All the correct file types are set under file associations in winamp options, but I have to manually open files through an explorer window or do the previously mentioned drag down to all files every time I try to open something.

    Has anyone else run into a problem like this?

  4. I mean, wow! 8O This is one clocked out tune.

    I love the start up process that you created for this song.

    Even though it say that it is from the game, I've never heard it in either of the two games. And I can tell that you made it because some of what is says is complety pointless but sounds kick ass! Thank you for finally delevering a remix of one of my most favorite, classic tunes... 8)


    "Rock on"

    The first part is the Corneria (1st level) song from the SNES Starfox. The second part sounds like the "victory" after each level.

    Anyway, this tune kicks major ass!

  5. *Spoilers*

    I just a second ago died fighting metroid prime. That bastard. I didn't go into the battle with full energy though because I didn't know that's where it was gonna be. I'll go back a little later and kick his ass now that I know what his pattern is. That hyper beam kicks all ass btw 8)

  6. Rockman and Forte (Megaman game in Japan that never made it to the US, last one on SNES). In one of the "castle" levels after you beat all he robots, there was this flying tank-like thing that you had to fight while continually jumping on little tiny platforms that raised out of the bottom of the screen one by one, then fell just as the next one was rising. To make things worse, the boss had this laser that could knock you off and it also shot these little bubble things... if you touched them, the whole screen would flash white for a second so you COULDNT SEE WHAT YOU WERE DOING. You could only hit the thing in one little tiny spot too. Goddamn that thing was hard.

    Come to think if it, that entire game was damn near impossible.
