    By gracious thanks to the wonderful admins here at SF-O (Specifically Sideways, thank you friend) I'm back, it kinda saddens me to see this place so slow and such, but i guess that's kinda the product of little Starfox releases, even with Event horizon.... So umm.. hello everyone, old and new.

    So...any thoughts on this? It certainly makes the title game more interesting seeing as I've never even heard of it until now. I'm rather curious what other exclusives may be featured when the game is eventually released.

    Hey all, I'm in the process of repairing the downloads section. It's a slow process but I am getting there.

    This announcement is a few days late, I apologize. First, I would like to announce that Sawtooth has decided to step down as administrator. His reason is this: Second, I'd like to announce that I have volunteered to take his place. After some discussion with the other admins and mods, my placement has been confirmed. I do plan on attempting to make some new articles for the site, as well as trying to fix the downloads section that has been broken for a long time. Most of you who are on discord already know this information, but some of you may not be on Discord and you deserve to know what is happening too.

    My mum just called Fox 'a boastful son', after watching 'The Battle begins'..it was funny! My response to it "I would just say he's self-confident." "Oh..so is that what you would call it?!"

    "I am UAZ-469...and this, is my new weapon. He weighs 1,780 kilograms and fires 193 gas fuelled horsepower at 4,800 rotations per minute. It costs approximately 7,70 € to drive this weapon...for 100 kilometres..." I...I did it. 12 years... 12 years I have waited and worked for this very moment. This moment, where I can proudly say... I have finally fulfilled my dream. A dream, in the shape of a car. A Dodge Charger. So feel free and invited to join the car and me, grab the rum and celebrate this moment. Apart from that: It's unusual sitting in an "Executive car", which also has an automatic transmission. I feel like being a half meter too short and that I would steer a battleship. This boi offers so much space, that you can put your seat back and the passengers on the backseat still have more than enough room for their legs. And the sound of the V6-engine is awesome! Of course, US-Americans might not bat an eye on a Charger, as those are a common sight there, as far as I know. But here, in Germany? Let me tell you, that you have a much, much higher chance of encountering Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis and other exotics than a Charger. So more of a collector's piece. Fun fact: Mustangs and Dodge Rams are extremely popular and actually breeding like rabbits here. Not that it's a bad thing. Let's face it: You don't buy a Charger because you want to drive economically, protect the environment, transport goods and visit customers as a sales representative, as there are way better cars for that. This one is, in fact, a roaring, vicious and hideous abomination in the disguise of a full-size car, which would rather destroy everything in its way instead of driving around every obstacle, since it possesses the elegance of an oil tanker. No... You get one, because for what it wants to be! Because you love it for his character! Like you marry another person for his/her inner values! ...not that I want to marry the car, but you get my point, I guess. I for one will ask our beloved god tonight to bless the Charger's constructors and protect it's heart and soul. 'Til death do us part. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit... Amen.

    Hi, friends. I always forget about this website, but I never forget about Star Fox. I love it, and on depressing days like today, I want to do nothing but play through Star Fox Adventures or complete my favorite missions in Star Fox Assault and 64. I just wanted to check in and say hi to you all, and I hope you play something Star Fox related soon.

    Hello everyone! Its me Dark Shadowscale from a long long long time ago! How have you all been? I haven't been on here, since the site messed up my log in and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Just remembered this ite after talking to someone I knew from here, and decided to pop in and see if i could get a password reset (and it worked!). Anything been going on lately? Hope you are all well, thank you for your time.

    Starlink was a good crossover game for the Starfox IP. I would love to see some more crossover games if it meant getting Star Fox some more love and maybe another game or so. Some kind of racing game would be neat.

    I ousted cable TV months ago, too expensive, nothing substantial to watch, plus streaming services are a bit cheaper, and I am in control. Cable TV will be extinct within the next 5-10 years at the absolute most. Nothing of value will have been lost.

    Yeowch, that's particularly bad. The parent company of CN also re-did Boomerang's programming lineup IIRC, and dropped a lot of the classic Hanna-Barbera back catalog in favor of two or three shows broadcasted in marathon format. It's a shame, really.

    What Quad said. Plus, it goes deeper than that. People come onto the site, and they see without entering how many people are in the chat room, even if there's only one or two people in there, it gives the impression to a newcomer that there are actually people here.They write their introductory post on the forums, but they don't have to wait for people to reply to actually speak to other members, because they can just go into the chat room and speak with the members there. The replacement chat feature at the top of every page now now only obnoxiously intrudes on the screen space, but people don't use it like they would use the chat room. Before, many people in this site would have the chat open in its own tab, while doing other things, and just leave it there so that if others wanted to, they'd stop in and say hi. Additionally, while people used the chat room, it would create a better sense of community throughout the regular users of the site, which incentivized people to use the forum pages in order to help that community thrive. The chat room and the forum pages made up for the weaknesses of each other, and removal of one results in the downfall of the other, as we've seen. As I'm typing this, other than Quadroline's message from earlier today, the last message in the chat box was almost two weeks ago. That makes perfect sense, as well. Why send anything there at all if it's up in the air as to whether or not you'll even get a response? People come to the forum pages to look at the forums, so when they do, they skip right over the chat box. Integrating the two has diluted the site, which has caused a fundamental shift in the way people use the site, which in turn has turned people away, resulting in a site which has very little traffic lately. That's what was so special about the chat room.

    Allow me to introduce a "Why the hell not" build. I call it Satan. It started as a bare 2 stroke 50 VC scooter I bought for a hundie, why not little inbetween project. Now it's an abomination. I bumped it to a 180cc, nothing major, new exhaust, weights, piston, clutch etc. And to top it off, I bought a N02 kit. Why not. So when this abomination is finished I'll post the final product, that is if it doesn't detonate like a bomb when I start it.

    Today is the official release date for Starlink: Battle for Atlas, the space exploration toy to life game developed by Ubisoft, available on the Switch, Xbox One and Playstation 4. Why is this important for Starfox? The Nintendo Switch version has a tie-in with Starfox, as a "toy" Arwing is included with the game, and you can play as Fox throughout the game, as well as special Starfox themed missions to stop Wolf. I hope to have a copy here soon, so I can review it more in depth with you.

    Man it's been a long time for me. I was very frequent poster way back in the day of Arwing Landing. But the site had an issue, and accidentally banned my account. This was years, and years ago probably back in 08. So I landed on Starfox Online, and posted a little before leaving forums all together. Was always a huge Starfox fan. It's nice to see such an organized forum still up.

    Really liking Wolf's design; it seems to follow Star Fox Zero's outfit more closely than Smash. Still, both are cool, and it's great to see this much content has been coming out lately for Star Fox.

    Oh. Hi. Name's Shmibli. You don't know me, as I am after your time. The place is pretty much a ghost town at the moment, but I am hoping that more people will arrive some day and usher in a second generation of SF-O users. So, on the off chance you ever feel like doing something here, feel free to hit me up. Goodness knows that we need some activity here. I'm also on PlayStation Network if you have a PlayStation... Although, I am a generation behind. So, overall: Welcome back! Btw... Do you mind if I bum your Discord link? I have been trying to get into the SF-O Discord for a while now, but have never been able to.

    The new Nintendo Direct showed off additional gameplay and some beautiful pre-rendered cutscenes. Not to mention Wolf is looking as good as ever. The return to his British accented speech is curious - while I prefer his Assault voice over the others, this iteration isn't bad at all.

    Hello everyone. ^^ My name is MidnightMike, and I'm here to show you my tribute animation to the original Star Fox, which celebrated it's 25th anniversary this past March. I know it might not be as good as you were hoping, but I had fun making it. Here it is. :)

    So last year when Star Fox 2 was launching on the SNES classic. One of my fellow NintendoWorldReport.com staff members and I took it upon ourselves to create a somewhat historically accurate approximation of a Star Fox 2 manual. The whole thing is free to download here. Anyway in the process we wound up creating some new art as well as... I guess I'd say finishing... some of the existing concept art Nintendo had already released. You've probably seen the design documents for the various Arwing variants in Star Fox 2. We went in and cleaned those up and colored them to look more like finished art. We also did our best to create from scratch an illustration of the carrier to match the official art's style. I also wound up building (as accurately as I could) the standard Arwing and its walker form in 3D. We used these images in the controls section of the manual. I build a 3D version of the carrier as well though it never actually made it into the final manual. Anyway it was a really fun project to go back and try to restore some old art as well as create modern renders of the ships. Of course I have to give credit to Tsuyoshi Watanabe for the original Star Fox 2 concept art we worked from. Oh and here (video) is how the finished manuals looked for anyone who was curious.

    I'll probably pick it up. It would be cool to fly the galaxy in an Arwing unscripted, no missions or battles (hopefully)

    I don't come here much, because honestly, this site has hit a low point. It seems very quiet, and it has recently been fairly boring to come here. When I saw this news, however, I jumped in joy at the possibility. I decided to come back here today to join in on the discussion everyone was undoubtedly having. So imagine my surprise when I come here and can't see one reference to the two days old news, not even on the sites main page. In case you missed it, there's a rumour going around that Retro Studios is working on a game called "Star Fox Grand Prix", which is supposedly a mix between F-Zero and Diddy Kong racing, set in the Star Fox universe. The game will apparently have bosses, like Diddy Kong Racing. For anyone interested, here's a relevant link: https://kotaku.com/rumors-suggest-that-retro-studios-is-making-a-star-fox-1826020570

    I'm going to give this game a shot. I Mean at least Star Fox is appearing in something, and even if its a 1 off side thing like Adventures, I'll gladly play it. especially if they bring in characters from across the series Have loads of playable characters Powerups- like smart bombs. and in general nods to the series history throughout.

    The album cut of The Reflex doesn't have the remixed intro that the popularly played version of the song has, and I think it sounds much better this way. That synth just can't be beat!

    We have several car dealers here who specialize on US-imports and offer services for them. There are also some sellers on ebay, who sell spare parts for US-cars for reasonable prices. For example, a new pair of headlights for my model, which are in store and would be delivered in a few days, cost around 300,00 €. That said, as far as I know, all Chargers here are imports and only available through those aforementioned US-importers, who mostly have a wide range of models, instead of larger quantities from only a few. So if they are sold out the question isn't "When will the next shipment of cars come?", but "Can you import one for me?" Probably also the reason why the prices for good Chargers here start around 10.000,00 € (Mine was sold for 9.500,00), with 150.000 kilometres to boot and ten years old. As a rule of thumb, if you see one for, say, 5.000,00 €, chances are that it's either about to fall apart, or, more important, doesn't have German papers. But seriously, considering that if you search for Chargers on Germany's largest website for buying and selling cars, you get less than 100 results currently, you really can't be selective. You either have to be extremely lucky or bite the bullet and pay a lot. And that's just for buying it. I'll take a wild guess and assume now, that older Chargers in good condition in the US are basically sold for peanuts. But if you import one, you can put a few thousand bucks on it for customs duty, papers, and so on. And with that, a question: We were very surprised that this model apparently doesn't come with standard reversing lights, and that the lights behind the white glass under the brake lights are actually the indicators. As that wasn't allowed as well, the previous owners had to retrofit one. Looks weird and is hard to see, as it's small and more or less hidden under the rear bumper. Is that normal?

    Congrats on the acquisition, and they're definitely a common sight in the states. How accessible are parts and repairs over there? - was that generation of Charger ever sold domestically in Germany?

    So my car is finally fixed. Sounds normal again, maybe even quieter then before. Took the time today to replace my spark plugs. What a pain in the ass that is. Basically had to remove the whole airbox to get to the iginition coils, which involved unplugging the ECU. Note that this is a stock image and is not actually my car lol.

    Maybe you have noticed already, every Monday from 1:30 am JST to around 3:00 am JST this server might be slower than usual. This is because we make big backups of all websites with constant changes once every week. This is the backup schedule: Every day at 0:00 JST: database backup creation. Every Monday at 0:30 JST: file backup of constantly updating sites (like DSHack, StarFox-Online, 076.ne.jp, etc.). Every 1st day of the month at 1:00 JST: file backup of sites that rarely or never change (like the sites of nurse customers). Every day at 1:30 JST: send the database backup to all backup servers. Every Monday at 2:00 JST: send the file backup to all backup servers. Backup servers are all located in the same region as this server is located, which means in Japan, Singapore, and Australia. Hong Kong and South Korea are coming soon too. Here's the status page: http://status.076.ne.jp/#/ You might want to refresh the page to get the correct information, it's a known issue, and will be fixed when I get the time for it.

    I've uploaded this tool to MEGA, and I'll be putting the link in this post, assuming it shows up. I will admit though, I do not have the source code of the tool, so making adjustments to it may be more challenging if anyone wants to do such a thing. Also, out of curiosity, are there any other types of sites that I should upload it to? https://mega.nz/#!NSR2ib6J!9_QAhU_TFeNPUszJV_NQpdYrabf3LSyZjUpxL0CKgNw

    Hello everybody, first post here. A little bit ago I decided I wanted to get the models out of Adventures for a few projects I wanted to work on. Since I have a bit of experience in this area and a bit of free time I figured I'd see if I could throw together a little model ripper for fun and see what I could end up with. I didn't want to mention or post anything until I got it at 100 percent, but unfortunately my schedule coming up is looking pretty full and I don't think I'll be getting much of a chance to work on it anytime soon. So I've decided to release what I have at the moment in case anyone happens to be interested. In general it seems to be working pretty well. It can rip the majority of models out of the game's 'MODELS.bin' and 'mod##.zlb.bin' files. It exports as a Maya Ascii (.ma) file. I realize this may not be the most convenient option, but prior experience has taught me that the common interchange formats simply don't support all the features I desire when working on these projects. Known issues: - It doesn't link multiple UV sets to their appropriate textures. - It will often report success extracting linked textures even if the process failed. - The initial perspective viewport errors out, leaving you in a fallback camera. Possible issues: - There may be an issue with assigning certain weight values. From what I've seen this is probably pretty minor, if it is a problem at all). Download link, as well as character models and textures for the main cast can be found here. Change log: Images: Other notes: It's a basic console application, just drag and drop the files you want extracted. If there are 'TEX1.tab' and TEX1.bin' files in the same folder as the file being extracted it will extract and link the textures automatically. Without the texture files present at the time of extraction, the textures will need to be linked to the models manually. In the case of 'mod##.zlb.bin' files, the files on the root of the disk are just copies of files of the same name in the other folders. If you want it to extract the textures for those models you will have to extract it from the folder containing that file, as the texture files on the root do not contain those textures. Finally I'll release the source after I've cleaned it up a bit if anyone has any interest.

    This one's honestly not that hard to do, it's a matter of getting the right team to do it since Miyamoto and his team cannot handle the series at all.

    The ripped model for Andross is surprisingly detailed, considering we never really see it in-game. It makes me wonder if there was another planned phase for that battle that they had to scrap. Looks like he has no feet, though, so even with a body it seems he's still floaty. Honestly, though, this design fits with my headcanon about Andross that he's wired himself into that giant head form.

    This is pretty cool, great job. However, 2 things immediately jump out at me. First, Sauria was described as being at the edge of the Lylat System "in a forgotten corner", where as you have depicted it as being roughly in the middle. Second, Cerinia was never part of the Lylat System, but was actually a planet in a different solar system all together.
