Typo on a Capcom Wallpaper

This is just too funny to pass up. Looking back at the Ryuusei 1 Capcom Japan page, they have some wallpapers to download. On this particular wallpaper, look at the bottom line of text.

Here is the typo isolated.
"Digital" and "RIGHTS" are misspelled. If I had to guess, it would have to be because of haste because that's probably how I'd ever misspell words. Interestingly, the other wallpaper doesn't have this mistake.

What Would Star Force HP Memory Look Like?

I've been keeping busy with some side projects. This time I imagined what HP Memory looked like in the Star Force series. Rather than go with the nondescript "disc" idea, I decided on something that would fit the game's style of upgrades.
This card would potentially have a one-time use. The game sometimes says it shines so the card image has a sparkle to it. The rest of the design is slightly based on the card designs from the Wave Command Card Kit book.

Even if there is an official look to the HP Memories, I haven't seen them so it was a fun project that required imagination!

BN6 Navi Emblems

I'm keeping myself busy in the meantime. This time I went ahead and recreated the Navi emblems from MMBN6 in vector. It turns out a lot of the detail is lost for the in-game icon. I had to look in official sources to get a better idea on what it really looks like. Even scaled down they closely resemble the in-game icons.
The first 3 were pulled from official sources like flash sites, but the rest we all me.
In order, if you're not familiar, from left to right: MegaMan, HeatMan, ElecMan, SlashMan, KillerMan, ChargeMan, AquaMan, TomahawkMan, TenguMan, GroundMan, DustMan, ProtoMan.

4.5 Internet Pixel Maps

What would all the Internet areas in BN4.5 look like if they were put together? I made this yesterday showing just that. I created accurate versions of the maps on a small isometric grid.
The small, compact maps hep visualize the direction maps go on. Aside from a few inconsistencies, it certainly makes sense.

Gold Datas in BN6

I like looking into these things and the next game was an obvious. Thanks mostly to GM, we figured out the secret to gold datas in BN6! Yeah, this many years late.

They look much yellower in this game.

Heart and Star Datas in 4.5

Heart and Star Datas... there's one thing that bugged me about these as soon as I picked up BN4.5 recently: they're impossibly hard to find. Seems not every map has one and it's too tedious to check all 20-something maps for them. I know, it sucks.
Where to start...
That's why GM and I looked into the issue earlier today. The solution alleviates some of the problem.
