(I messed up by not promptly courtesy-blanking this. I would update the revision history but it's not worth the bother.)

== Purpose of the article ==
Should this article focus mainly on the analysis of LJ65's features as a tetromino game, or would that unnecessarily duplicate information at tetrisconcept/harddrop? Is there some other aspect upon which you want to focus this article? [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 16:21, 23 August 2010 (MST)
:Mostly I wanted to have at least one page on the wiki about each of my projects so that I get a blue link instead of a red one when I talk about the project on other wiki pages. Eventually I may want to restructure my whole web site inside the wiki (as stepmania.com has done); the preexistence of this URL might help my SEO if I end up going that route. --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 16:52, 23 August 2010 (MST)
== Detect TV system ==
This page has been blanked as a courtesy.
What would I need to do to modify LJ65 to [[nesdev:Detect TV system|adjust automatically for the region of the console]] (repurposing the "Region coding failed" message to indicate that <code>getTVSystem</code> has returned <code>3</code>, warning the user about inaccurate emulators and famiclones)?
I have a good background in basic computer science, and I think I know enough about 6502 ASM from hanging around the NESdev forums. I see that the source and tools are in the same distribution package as the binary. For which assembler software is the [[nesdev:Detect TV system|region detection code]] intended? [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 09:06, 18 August 2011 (MST)
:First off, you'll have to find every speed and every delay in the program and have it automatically rescale for the different TV systems. Everything that's an <code>.ifdef PAL</code> will have to become a run-time change. This took me a couple days to get perfect in [[Thwaite]]; there are a bunch of multiplications by 19/16 or 13/16 scattered throughout the program. Then you'll have to make the same changes that I made to the music engine of Thwaite (whose source code I plan to release once the NESdev compo results are announced): using 3000 or 3606 frames per minute depending on the TV system, and transposing the pitch up a semitone on PAL NES (but not PAL famiclone). And the code is intended for ca65, the same assembler that I've used for everything since I got my PowerPak. --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 20:02, 18 August 2011 (MST)
{{spoiler box|1=To clarify:
*Does the ZIP package indeed include the tools needed to compile LJ65 from source?
*If so, is the assembly code at [[nesdev:Detect TV system]] correctly formatted for those tools, or how should it be modified?
*Anything tricky I need to know about LJ65's code architecture?
[[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 20:04, 18 August 2011 (MST)|type=Edit conflict, probably moot}}
::Okay. Perhaps I slightly underestimated the difficulty of the task because I forgot that LJ65 smoothly animates piece falling, and I should have actually read over the source code before asking all these questions. <s>I'll look into this more seriously when I have more free time in a little over a week.</s> (Will update with more detailed scheduling info later) [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 20:11, 18 August 2011 (MST) (last edit 21:48, 7 September 2011 (MST))
== Tetrad toxin ==
[http://www.cracked.com/article/95_6-web-how-tos-that-are-apparently-supervillains_p2 A ''Cracked'' article] misspells [[wikipedia:tetrodotoxin|tetrodotoxin]], the neurotoxin in [[wikipedia:fugu|fugu]], as "tetradotoxin". Articles in ''Nintendo Power'' about ''Tetris'' on NES and Game Boy referred to [[wikipedia:tetromino|tetrominoes]] as "tetrads", as did the first pressings of ''[[wikipedia:Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II|Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II]]''. What does this say about a crossover between LJ65 and [[Concentration Room|something]] [[Not see zombies|else]]? --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 05:53, 19 January 2012 (MST)
:It's definitely a possibility; is this meant to be compatible with "[http://tetrisconcept.net/forum/showthread.html?t=499 Getting Lockjaw]," which you mentioned at [[User talk:Tepples/Archive 1#Fictional continuity]]? [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 11:51, 19 January 2012 (MST)
::[[Getting Lockjaw|That]] sort of complicates things. --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 16:51, 19 January 2012 (MST)
Or it could just be [http://www.cracked.com/photoplasty_325_22-video-games-as-understood-by-old-people_p13/#13 Soviet hypnosis]. --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 16:11, 5 March 2012 (MST)
== This talk page ==
What should we do: {{[[wikipedia:Template:Db-g8|db-g8]]}}? Courtesy blank? Or should it be archived in userspace somewhere? --[[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] ([[User talk:Eighty5cacao|talk]]) 15:10, 8 December 2012 (CST)
