Re: watch this cheat

It's not cheating. I changed the colours of each individual Treasure Haul coin.

Re: watch this cheat

It's not a cheat, there's actually options to change the colours of pieces in certain puzzles if you would for example be colour blind. (There's options to change colours if your non-colour blind aswell tho...)

Re: watch this cheat

Is what fair? That his blocks are prettier? Who cares. Aesthetics have no effect on puzzle mechanics. Close your eyes, imagine the prettiest blocks that your jealous mind can generate, and then transfer your imagination to your puzzle. There. You are cheating too now.

Also, not that it's any of your business, but Motou changed the colors because of his vision. He can't see the what color the pieces will turn when they are 2nd and 3rd turn gray. It has nothing to do with showing off.

Cephalopod has posted numerous times (example) that this is prohibited and this is cheating. Don't do it.

If I got this right you are talking about the background art colourthat changed a while back?

This thread is in regards of the different drop colours that is showed in the video.

Ceph has posted numerous times it is considered editing game files, which is against the ToS. Because of the reality that people have visual disabilities and OOO cannot discriminate against people who have such disabilities makes this a gray area.

I for one do have a visual disability which prevents me from picking details out and if anyone wants to see my CNIB card at any time, I'll upload a picture of it to prove it, so I changed the file to be coloured in so I can see the stencils in the grayed blocks. I've tried playing without the edit, and it doesn't affect my knowledge or ability in the puzzle, but slows me down and puts more strain no myself as I try to decipher the pieces.

Personally, I think they always should have been this way, for convenience, but oh well.

You really do love that post Lj =)

Edit: Just looked at who the OP was and I chuckled. A banned player, banned for cheating in swordfighting asking if this is a cheat, brilliant.

Re: watch this cheat

Was banned for hacking someones account, you say it slows you down, without been harsh i say tough cookie, its unfair to players sfing you, you say its so you can see the stencils of the gray blocks, then why not have them a colour that isnt used in sf, such as white purple or orange?

Re: watch this cheat

You were banned during OCL background checks while applying with End's team. Mods were detected on your account. Good try.

So, you'd be happy with random purple and orange colors, but not with him slightly altering the existing colors? lolokayicicic

Re: watch this cheat

Changing the gray stencils to show red as orange, green as purple, blue as gold and yellow as bronze would be fine. Making the file itself just a colour block instead of the image would be fine and have the same effect, it would just be visually unappealing. And truthfully, in the photo editing software, copying the colour of the existing pieces and flooding the sprinkle pieces with it was easier than picking a new colour, and made more sense.

Without being harsh, considering you are banned for whatever reason, I will take your advice with zero grains of salt, hope you don't mind.

Re: watch this cheat

Ocl background checks, while on ends team we won the final and it was my team, learn your facts, reason i was banned was account theft, search my name on the forum search and you will see. Im not saying random colours, im saying the colours shouldnt change while everyone else who sfs doesnt see these until they turn into blocks, that is the point of sending in an sf, seeing the colour of a block is alot more than a "stencil"

Re: watch this cheat

I think you need a reading comprehension class. I would put it in capital letters, but that'd be annoying so I will just repeat myself in list form.

I have a vision disability.

I cannot see the stencils in the gray, normal pieces.

Thus I changed the colour so I can play on a fair field.

Get it?

The point isn't how you were banned though, it's that you were banned. Period. And the fact you are looking up youtube videos of swordfighting and posting that you have a problem with it almost guarantees you are ban evading, unless your ban was lifted.

You're missing the fact that it's still exactly the same, minus the color variation that gives him no advantage whatsoever. He sees what piece the block is the same exact time we do.

I think you are a ditz that doesn't realize what it's like to have a disability because you have never had one. I literally, 100% cannot see the stencils in the grayed out pieces without leaning into the screen and squinting. You tell me, is that fair?

No, I didn't think so.

Re: watch this cheat

He sees the way we do AFTER he changes it. He is at an extreme disadvantage BEFORE he changed it. He did it to counteract his worse vision and be able to play the puzzle like the rest of us. Should we remove wheelchair ramps from the world while we're at it? Those darn rolly chair people using their disability to avoid stairs!

Re: watch this cheat

Face. Palm. The second phase when the stencil appears, smartypants. I cannot see the stencil. I seriously thought I said that in 3 of 5 posts.

Are you in a good educational system? Your reading skills seem to be at a grade one level.

Re: watch this cheat

from http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Swordfight

Maybe if you spent less time hacking and more time learning the mechanics even the ables are aware of, you'd realize what you said is untrue and kind of shocking for someone who only played swordfight.

Re: watch this cheat

This is precisely the change that Cephalopod confirmed is not allowed. If you have a disability, you're supposed to get explicit permission. And I sympathize with the visual difficulties. Unlike most people, I've actually had a needle to the eye. :)

Well, we tried explaining it to you, but I suppose I will just ignore you, you are banned and aren't supposed to be here afterall.

The stupid comment was about your ability to read and comprehend what everyone was saying to you, not about your writing.

To Sweetiepipi: Yes, he did, and yes, I have. However, despite the official word, it's kind of gray, but meh.

For once I have to agree with Bunny :S
