EE Artist FAQ

I’m in a bit of a hurry so I’ll edit if anything needs it later.

I’ve received a lot of questions about why it doesn’t work sometimes. I’ll answer the most common questions here.

It says invalid user, pass or worldID.

First thing you need to know is that this doesn’t support Facebook or Kongregate login at this time. When you enter your email and password for Everybody Edits, make sure to not include any spaces before or after any of the text in any box. For world ID, do not put the entire link! Make sure to put the part that starts with “PW” and ends with “0I”.

It crashes and there are no helpful error messages.

Make sure all the files are extracted in the same folder. There should be EEArtist.exe, PlayerIOClient.dll, readme.txt, and a folder called includes with two images and two text files. Make sure you do not run it from inside the .zip folder!

.NET Framework error

All I can tell you for this is to Google the version it gives you. I’ll be updating the bot sometime soon and I’ll see what I can do to fix this  problem for people.

Sorry, this is all the time I have right now. If you have any more concerns or problems, please leave comments here. I try to check them once in a while.

EE Artist – Current Release

Download link: EE Artist v1.01

Hey guys,

First of all, I sincerely apologize for taking the download down last night. I understand many of you were looking forward to it, so I am very sorry. Please let me explain why I did so.

Last night, I found out about C# decompilation the hard way. I was under the assumption that the steps I followed would have prevented this from happening, but I was clearly wrong. Shortly after being uploaded, it was decompiled, so many people could easily see exactly how the bot was built.

That reason alone is not why I panicked, though. I added some security measures so that I or EverybodyEdits admins could shut down a bot. This was to prevent abuse. Unfortunately, with this development, it is possible for skilled people to remove these safety features. This made me quite nervous!

I will be re-uploading it though. And it won’t be protected from decompilation. The reason for this is that I understand people’s scepticism in putting in their EverybodyEdits email and password in a strange program. My hope in putting this program up this way is for those skilled programmers to confirm that your login information is safe with my program. If you don’t feel safe, feel free to ask anybody who has looked at the code. Of course, you could just not use my program if you’re worried about it. Important: Since my source code was available, it is possible for someone else to make a version of EE Artist that can steal your information. Don’t trust any EEArtist programs from other websites than this one.

On a brighter note, I updated it to include a speed button. I became aware that some people’s bots would leave while uploading a picture… So I added a speed option. If the bot disconnects or has problems, try using a higher number.

Sorry for the delay, and thank you all very much for your patience.

Edit: Moved the download link up top and made it giant.

E3: Wii U

Wii U

It’s been officially announced! The next gen Wii we’ve been hearing rumours about has finally be unveiled at E3. Named the Wii U (quite an odd name), it will feature HD graphics like its next-gen counterparts. However, the real innovation is in its controller. The controller will have a touch screen, two analog sticks, a D-pad, the usual ABYX, LR, and an added ZL and ZR. Information can be found at these locations:

The second link also contains links to images and videos on YouTube.

I have high hopes for Nintendo and their new console. I certainly hope they don’t disappoint!

Advertisements

As some of you may have noticed, I just finished adding some Google Ads on my blog. If you’re like me, you won’t even notice the difference because AdBlock hides all ads… but if you don’t have ad blocking tools, I hope I was able to place them in such a way that they will stay out of the way.

My hope for these ads is that I will be able to make a tiny bit of money (heck, even cents is more money than my site is making now) to be able to put towards more years of hosting this website.

Now, some of you may have just heard of AdBlock for the first time, so I’ll explain. It’s a tool that you can add to your browser (hopefully you’re using Chrome or Firefox and NOT Internet Explorer!) that hides all the ads on a page. It’s very handy! I’ll post some links to where you can download them at the end of this post.

You may be thinking, “but how will I be able to support you if the links are hidden from me?” I know, I know, some of you are just thoughtful like that. AdBlock has another nice feature that lets you put websites onto a whitelist. That is, ads on this website will show up to you without leaving you exposed to ads on other websites.

Too bad I’m not allowed to click on my own ads because some of these actually look interesting… Guess I’ll have to Google the things I find enjoyable.

As promised, here are the links for AdBlock for their respective browsers (and the links to the browsers in case you’re still using the dreadful Internet Explorer).

Everybody Edits

Everybody Edits is one of those simple flash games that look like it won’t be addicting. But it is. Unfortunately, it’s a bit too addicting so I’ve cut back a lot to be able to still do all my assignments, study, and the other usual college-related stuff. But that doesn’t mean I don’t suggest you to play it!

In fact, I suggest you give it a try. This game allows its players to create worlds or enter other people’s worlds. The character you control is a smiley face, which is changeable with more smiley faces to unlock as you keep playing. The default method of movement is left and right and space to jump, like a side-scroller. Before I continue, I need to make it clear that there are two different types of worlds, and game-play changes considerably between the two.

The first type of world is the “open world”. In this world, anybody who joins can place any blocks they own anywhere they want (except a few that are saved-world only, but I’ll get to that later). These blocks can be different colours, textures, etc. There are also blocks that aren’t really blocks, such as gravity-related ones, like an empty block (downwards gravity, like normal), arrows that point up, left, and right that send your character in those locations, an anti-gravity one that lets you move around without jumping, etc. There are gold coins and blue “bonus” coins, and crowns which only one player can have on in a world.

The other type of world is the “protected world”. The owner can change the name, clear the level, save the level, and load from a previously saved state. The owner can also set up a private code that allows users who enter it to also edit the world. The major difference, though, is that whoever can edit the world (that is, the owner and the people with the code) can enter something called “God mode”. This allows players to move across the world without gravity or being affected by any blocks. They can move through anything except the edges of the world, and they can click and drag to create blocks instead of placing them one at a time. For this reason, a lot of protected  worlds make side-scroller games in which players can join and play but not mess up.

Anyway, I think I’ve talked enough about it. If you really want to know what it’s like, I highly suggest you check it out. It’s free, after all.

Welcome to my new blog!

Is it too late for an introductory post? I think not!

I thought I’d kick start my blog with a post of actual value instead of an intro. Perhaps it will serve as good luck? Who knows.

I’m Nicolas Lavallee. I go by Zalgryth and have gone by Megaryuu, so chances are very high that if you’ve seen either of those names around it was me. I’m currently enrolled at Conestoga College for Software Engineering, so my posts just might be influenced by things that I learn.

This blog will be about whatever I feel like writing, so it could cover games, technology, issues that I feel like bringing up, or just about anything else. My goal is to increase my writing skill and write about things I care about.

I don’t want to make this longer than it needs to be, so I’ll wrap it up here. If you’re reading this blog, you’re awesome.

Cheers!
