Bravo Dakar.

We're taking submissions for the name of the fifth ghost.

Hey, hey, no threads about other members!

They're obviously all named Dakar.
 
subego Apr 5, 2013 09:29 PM
I nominate "Dinky".

"Envy"

:) Shouldn't this be green?

I thought the last was Clyde... so maybe Eustace.

Originals were Blinky, Winky, Twinkie, and Clyde? Edit for Wikipedia: Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde.

Hmmm... any Game Meister I know, would know there is no 5th ghost!

:stick:
 
Demonhood Apr 12, 2013 04:35 PM
The 5th ghost is Pac-Man himself, forced to haunt a virtual simulation of his life's story until the end of the universe.
 
andi*pandi Apr 12, 2013 04:35 PM
It's very kafka-esque.
 
subego Apr 27, 2013 01:22 PM
I'm not nearly as envious of these. ;)
 
reader50 Apr 27, 2013 02:51 PM
I've got to work on them some more. The green background was supposed to be subtle, with the arrows bigger.

What's Dakar got on you reader? Don't let him bully you, it can't be that bad.
 
reader50 Apr 27, 2013 04:03 PM
Dakar has helped the forums with his game-news thread. But he's afraid of ghosts, so I had to help him out. :)

Damn, it is that bad.

Excellent work reader. Now promise to leave it as is.

Especially the code sequence.
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 12:37 PM
Good lord, what did I miss?

Also, what would my fellow gaming brethren recommend in place of the stars?
 
Stogieman Apr 29, 2013 12:47 PM
Ah man, he changed it back. Reader had replaced the ghosts with green buttons labeled with arrows and letters that represented the Konami code. (Except he had the sequence wrong.)

Down,Down,UP,UP,Left,Right,Left,Right,B,A
 
subego Apr 29, 2013 02:27 PM
Start!
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 02:31 PM
I was always taught it was "select, start" but obviously the select is superfluous.
 
reader50 Apr 29, 2013 02:59 PM
reader had the correct sequence. But they look like crap, and I don't have time to fiddle with them yet.

And here I thought you were quiet over the weekend to be polite.

The colors are from the Apple rainbow logo, btw.

Seconded. I double checked.

I'm quiet every night and weekend. I usually don't post when at home (with the rare exception to active game threads).

That, uh, that's gonna need some major work. I have the free time to play around with it later today.

Edit: I was playing around with other concepts – the d-pad seemed like an ideal choice, but it turns out when you reduce it to star sizes it just looks like you love crosses.

Jesus...

I was only looking at the left-right. I didn't think it was possible to switch up-up with down-down.

I plead failure of imagination.

Presume it's limited to 5 items?
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 04:51 PM
Yes – and gaming related, of course.
 
subego Apr 29, 2013 04:55 PM
I personally find the ghosts to be pretty friggin inspired.
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 04:57 PM
You're old.
 
mattyb Apr 29, 2013 04:58 PM
The ghosts are hard to beat.

Something from GoldenEye, something from Halo, maybe a mini-Mario, something Minecraftish and a Tetris shape?

Like you said before, some stuff probably looks crap shrunk down.
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 04:59 PM
Tetris shapes. Not a bad idea – GameBoy was my first foray into video games.
 
subego Apr 29, 2013 05:08 PM
Space Invader aliens.
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 05:09 PM
Here, I'll beat you to the endgame. PONG
 
Stogieman Apr 29, 2013 05:16 PM
Give him 5 random Pokemons.

Also, I call dibs on your ghosts.
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 05:18 PM
I'll take 5 psyducks or 5 jigglypuffs
 
Stogieman Apr 29, 2013 05:25 PM
You'll get a Snorlax, 3 Squirtles and a Clefairy..... an like it!
 
subego Apr 29, 2013 05:26 PM
Dice.
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 05:29 PM
Maybe I'll ask for 5 stay puft men.
 
Stogieman Apr 29, 2013 05:32 PM
You changing your title to Movie Meister?
 
The Final Dakar Apr 29, 2013 05:41 PM
He was in a video game.
 
subego Apr 29, 2013 05:42 PM
Aces and eights.
 
mattyb Apr 29, 2013 06:33 PM
A space invader, a Pacman ghost, a Tetris shape, the Pokemon ball thingy and ...

AND ????

* reader had the correct sequence going into photoshop. Not sure how the initial arrows got switched when I reassembled them.

The green background was a mistake. All it takes are the arrows, in pairs. Without the background, the arrows can be a bit bigger too.
