Thank you especially for doing such a great job categorizing the images, and fixing the categories on the earlier uploads. We really appreciate it. Procyon 22:37, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure if you have this page marked as Watch, but thank you!

Sorry I misunderstood what the comments section was about, a bunch of them have descriptions as comments. Also sorry the files are 65x65, I might go back later and make them a proper power-of-2-size: 64x64.

Also, I've been running into some kind of cache problem or something where if I replace the image with a similar one, it seems the latest image is the first one. If I reupload, it shows the one before it correctly though. I'm not sure if this is a cache thing or some kind of picture-matching algorithm or just something I can safely ignore?

Yeah, that's not uncommon. You don't need to reupload an image a second time. Typically if you press Ctrl+F5 to force a cache reset on the page, the newly uploaded image will show up correctly in your browser. Don't worry to much about uploading power of 2 sized images, it actually grows the database with no benefit since your old 65x65 is preserved in the image history. And browsers don't care what size the images are.
Are you developing any other games besides your HM64 hack? I'm a game developer as well, I work at Big Huge Games in Maryland. Where are you located? Procyon 13:33, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

I see, so it was the cache after all. I thought that might have been the case, but I wasn't sure how to force the cache to update, I thought it might have been a bug. Sorry about all the extra uploads. Hopefully there's a way to easily clean them up, though I don't know if leaving them is a problem at all.

Currently, no, nothing in progress. I want to, but I can't get a team to do anything. It's all talk and then no one even bothers to look at the design doc. And without art, it's a bit discouraging.

I'm currently located in Germany, about to start my Masters (in CS) in a few days. I figured if I'm going to get a Masters, I might as well go somewhere interesting (and affordable), and of better quality than my last school - though it did have a Game Design degree so I took a lot of those courses too. I'll be back stateside (in Chicagoland area) in a few years though.

I had wanted a multiplayer Harvest Moon for a long time, but Nintendo does seem big on the idea of multiplayer how I'd like it, so I figured I'd just do it myself. I'm certainly going to toss a bunch of other options and some kind of options screen in there too while I'm at it: options for new character colors, or to swap the males and females, or play as a female, longer days or more years, etc. Shadow0144 (talk) 13:58, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
