    ...somebody should start coding this. [​IMG] it'll be a good novelty homebrew, just like Nyan Cat was a nice novelty homebrew.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    EDIT: omg, someone did. see following posts below for link. ?(`?´)?

    He saying someone should make a homebrew out of what was in the video.

    @BortzANATOR: Probably the epic music.

    for those of you who are wondering what the heck the title is supposed to be, it means
    "mercilessly bullying a robot that turns itself off when turned on" [​IMG]

    ... and yes, a hb like this would be great.

    I'm seriously working on it right now.

    CODEÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂif (touchXY.px > strtol("7B", NULL, 16) && touchXY.px < strtol("8A", NULL, 16) && touchXY.py > strtol("53", NULL, 16) && touchXY.py < strtol("62", NULL, 16) && v_switch == 0) {
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂv_switch = 1;
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂv_pushed = v_pushed+10;
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂframe = 0;
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ}

    I've got the main functions done, now I just need to code in what happens when the homebrew gets pissed off at you.

    Make it show a mad face and close the app if too many pushes are made at once. [​IMG]

    I've decided to release it open-source so I'm going to comment the shit out of this, so it's taking longer.

    (???) HOLY CRAP THAT WAS FAST! RYDIAN YOU'RE A GOD. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ...this'll also be a good way to full-drain batteries before fully-charging, to get the most out of your batteries. see? ain't so useless. [​IMG]

    okay, some more additional functions to consider.

    1. first few touches, it's lazy, so there should be some delay.
    2. after some rather annoying touches, it'll start to quicken its reactions.
    3. then it gets angry.
    4. make it scream some ungodly japanese soundbytes, with jap smilies (like in vid)

    Yeah I had a couple of things planned, then I realized I was taking too long to make it as I was eating up my free time just dicking around with it, as it's really only my second project for the DS. So consider that a remnant of a dummied feature? [​IMG] For example I originally planned to have it shut the DS off (or at least as close as can be) with something like "Screw you, I'm going to sleep!" after you annoyed it a few times, but then realized that'd take too long for me to find how to do.

    I don't think I'm going to continue development on this at all, which is why it's open-source.
