Welcome to Zelda64.net. Announcements can be found below!
As of 3.1.2017, this site seems pretty dead. Or on the brink of dying. So I've decided to try to help it out. Z64 is having its theme reworked to be more modern and professional. I'll try my best to get back into the Zelda modding scene. Hopefully we can get this place back up without the cobwebs (and without looking like a web page from the 1990s). Enjoy the current Zelda64 Dark theme over the next few days while I finish sorting out the rest of it and the Light theme. Thanks for sticking with us. Sylux102 out.

Out of the Frying Pan; Into the Fire

Posted by Sylux102 (Admins) at Mar 2 2017, 02:55 AM. 34 comments

Sylux102 reporting. After being long gone, and only occasionally checking in, I've decided to come back. This site really should be taken more seriously and a great first step is cleaning it up and bringing it out of the 1990's. As I visited, i noticed a few things about the site, which I will address.

First, you're probably wondering why I'm back. Well, much of it is quite personal, but the basic short version is that I'm now a social pariah, which allows me a lot of freedom actually. I also am employed again, which means I can now afford to pay my cable and internet bills, which will help me stick around for a bit longer. Also, I've decided to take a much more professional approach to managing this site. Hopefully this will contribute to a healthy forum environment.

As some of you may have already seen, I created a new logo that is much more modern and professional looking, and will be continuing to renovate the site. Something that I take very seriously is feedback, so I do appreciate any and all feedback I receive about any changes I make. If you don't like it, say so! If you don't tell me, I can't fix the error caused on your screen, because I can't see your screen (or can I?). But seriously. Feedback. Think about it.

Regarding the site, it seems that this forum was (or maybe still is) the butt of many a joke across most other Zelda modding sites. I want to change this. There were a few things I noticed were being said. One was that this forum is full of a bunch of crying babies that create new projects and then quickly abandon them or start something new before moving on (even I am guilty of the latter and will readily admit my mistakes). I have an idea to solve this problem, but it will take a bit more fine tuning before it is fully realized. Another thing was that I didn't know what I was doing, and that not many members here were knowledgeable about the Nintendo64 Zelda games. I will admit I am no technical genius when it comes to modding, there are quite a few talented people that were here, and hopefully they can come back. As far as my moderation goes, I will keep Ideka on as a moderator as he seems to really be the only active mod anymore.

This site really isn't seen by too many people, so we need a way to increase traffic. If anyone as a project that can be featured here, please PM me so we can coordinate. However, something new and fresh needs to be featured here as well. I've got something in the works to accommodate this as well, but it may not roll out for quite some time. This leaves mass emails and advertising as the only way of getting traffic. I will send an email to all currently registered members inviting them back, and you can invite as many other people that might be interested in modding the Nintendo64 Zelda games as well.

Thanks for sticking with us. We can't wait to see what you create.

Header Poll (We Need Your Input)

Posted by PwnzLPs (Admins) at Oct 12 2016, 12:35 PM. 3 comments

Hey! There have been complaints that the new header is far too big. This is down to a coding error. For the time being, the image has been fixed, but I'll be running a poll to see what you guys like the most for the image size. As of right now, the size of the image is set to 1088x408 (408px TALL and 1088px WIDE). Along with this, there are three other options, which I have provided previews for. There are also links for those previews.

So, I've decided to run a poll so that you guys can let me know what you want. So, do just that! And, if you think you have a better idea, than, let me know by posting it, along with a preview (if possible.)

PREVIEWS (downscaled resolution to 1280x720)

Design a Header

Posted by Sylux102 (Admins) at Apr 17 2016, 08:43 PM. 70 comments

Yep, you read it. I've been thinking, the old header seemed dated. Just as I was going to change it, the host site removed it for me. So here we are.

Post your design below. Every so often they will rotate through, so there will always be a fresh logo.

Vote now for which picture you'd like to see up there! http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=578efe64e4b0354c7d066da3

This forum will temporarily be closed this coming Saturday and Sunday for maintenance. This may occur more than one weekend in a row. During such time, here is what is planned to be accomplished:

-Remove canceled/garbage/useless topics, posts, or subforums that have been inactive for quite some time.
-New, more professional theme (old will be retained)
-New organizational setup and way of handling rule infractions (staff related stuff)
-New overall feel for the community

Any rejections or suggestions please let administration know by posting below.

Thanks

Emotes Update V2.0

Posted by PwnzLPs (Admins) at Nov 18 2015, 06:58 PM. 9 comments

Hey guys! Ryan here!

Emotes have been updated! They're no longer big, clunky, and annoying (that one depends on your tastes. ;P)

Here's a picture showing off the new emotes.

SPOILER FOR IMAGE TO SAVE MOBILE USERS BANDWITH


What do you guys think? :)

Big thanks to Matthrdika on DeviantArt for making these emoticons, as well as to JabuJabule for separating them into separate pngs, and PwnzLPs for making the backgrounds transparent!

Update: It has come to our attention that there is a white background on each emote. We are currently fixing this. Don't worry. The transparency issue has been fixed!

Spam - Whats being done and what to do about it

Posted by Sylux102 (Admins) at Jul 24 2015, 09:13 AM. 0 comments

Currently, there are two ways moderators are informed of spam:

1 they see it with their own eyes
2 someone reports it

This is great, except it only works for this site. Spammers have an easy way of sending you emails and PMs through this site, using one of various captcha blocking methods.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU RECIEVE SPAM EMAILS:

Forward unwanted or deceptive messages to:

the Federal Trade Commission at spam@uce.gov.

Be sure to include the complete spam email.(USA only, search for your country's equivalent)

your email provider.(Google, yahoo, cox, Microsoft etc)

At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed.

the sender's email provider, if you can tell who it is. (Usually the site after the "@")

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SEE SPAM IN A PM OR A REPLY:

Report it.

WHAT IS DONE TO SPAMMERS:

Since we have a zero tolerance policy with spam and spammers, anyone caught posting spam (also advertising, or anything totally unrelated to Zelda64, or, Nike Shoes or jewelry) is immediately banned from posting and banned from the site. The IP address will also be blacklisted.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN BANNED AND WISH TO RETURN:
or
IF YOU HAVE BEEN ACCIDENTALLY BANNED:

Send an email to:

sylux102 (at) gmail (dot) com

Thank you and have a wonderful time.

The One About My Departure

Posted by Sylux102 (Admins) at Feb 6 2015, 11:53 AM. 2 comments

Its been a great journey. Ever since Maco64 went down, and Flotonic suggested I start this site, I've been hard at work trying to keep things going. The work of an Admin may seem easy, but with 100+ active members, things get out of hand very quickly. That's why I hired Ideka and Godsturf on as moderators. I had known the two for some time and they both expressed interest in getting to know me back on Maco64. Once the member count had increased, I added PwnzLPs. I haven't known him for as long, but he seemed quite trustworthy, and has proven this to me through time. From here on out, if the 3 moderators feel it necessary to hire on new moderators, that will be their decision.

To a community I helped Flotonic construct, I am deeply saddened by my own departure. Sometimes things happen in real life that really, really get to you. Things that you can't control, and can only stand by and watch as they completely destroy any and all plans you had made for your life course. I will miss working on my projects, namely URA and OoTHD, however they will be in good hands. OoTHD will be sent to dear PwnzLPs. He might use it for his MMHD game. My URA mod will be headed to Dropbox. Which is an excellent place to keep things. I may pick them back up occasionally, but not like I have been doing. I need the time to rethink and replan my entire life. Funny how one thing in life can change everything. If you already have contributed to my projects, or plan on doing so, please do not be discouraged from continuing to help. They are left in good hands and those new folk can help keep things in order.

Concerning my return, I am unsure. A community as tight knit as this one is certainly hard to leave, but I need time to be a Recluse. I've found that withdrawal usually helps at least take the edge off (although I don't know about this one, its never been this bad before). If you see my name logged in at the bottom, its just a visit from an old friend. I won't be active hardly at all, maybe one or two edits here and there, but no more posts.

As sad as it is, this finalizes my departure that so many of you have voiced your opinions about. To those that spoke to me and told me to not leave, I must say that this was an eventuality of the current situation in my life. The 2005 movie Flight plan (pretty good, watch it if you haven't) has an almost relevant dialogue interchange. I say almost relevant because they talk about death of loved ones, but nobody has died in my case. But it certainly is just as painful as losing a spouse or child. Maybe even worse. Here's a spoiler that's copied directly out of the movies script, but only the relevant bits. Its probably best if you watch the film, reading it won't show you the all the emotions in it. KYLE is a mother aboard a plan who has just lost her daughter somewhere aboard the plane and her husband died earlier by

Thank you for all the support and help in making this community what it is today. May the wind be at your backs always, and I hope some great things will come from here. In the words of Gene Roddenberry's character Spock, Live long, and prosper. You have been, and always shall be, my friend.
