Cutstuff Discussion and Feedback / Cutstuff Forum Shutdown - June 1st
« on: April 05, 2024, 12:13:16 PM »
On June 1st 2024, this forum will be taken down permanently!


The Cutstuff forums will be closing on the 1st of June and all posts and topics will no longer be accessible. The database will be backed up and potentially will be available in some form at a later date, but there are no guarantees this will happen. You should browse and save any information/links/memories that are valuable to you before this time. The same is true for the mm8bdm blog, but the links and information found there will be preserved for a future web page. A future form of the forum is planned, mostly as a projects/events hub for MM8BDM players, but there's no ETA on when that is happening or what it will look like.

Why is this happening? Well, the main reason is the forum is barely used. People communicate using Discord these days, and the communities there are very active. Here is a link to the unofficial MM8BDM discord. It is only really unofficial as the dev team and myself do not moderate it. For all intents and purposes, it is the place to talk about MM8BDM and its surrounding community. The second reason is stability. Most of you probably aren't aware but this place is constantly going offline or the database is having hiccups. I don't have the technical experience to figure out why this happens, and don't really have time to learn. Therefore I want the site to be hosted and maintained by someone who does, OR make be a basic portal with links (which it pretty much is currently anyways), that can't randomly drop or fail due to a behind the scenes software update that I was totally unaware of.

To save us work and prevent a bunch of troll TEH END IS NIGH posts, the forum will also be locked. Once again, this is your last chance to save any useful information stored on the forum pages!

I will try to save one of my children.

MM8BDM Discussion / MM8BDM V6b - Released!
« on: March 10, 2023, 09:17:38 PM »

V6B is here! This content update brings an overall new polish to various aspects of the game. Certain maps, levels and items have been upgraded! Alongside tweaked and redone weapons, this version introduces brand new system mechanics such as hazard assists, hazard credits, enhanced team colors, and hit confirm sounds to also better the feeling of playing the game.

For modders, the backend of the game has heavily been reworked to allow for better compatibility between mods and the ability to do things that were not previously possible. Be sure to check out the brand new wiki to see a snippet of what's possible.

New Features

This list of features is not exhaustive and not spoiler-free, beware!

Drop the console with `and type vid_adapter. It will tell you which monitor Zandronum is using. If it's "1" type vid_adapter 0, or visa versa.

Not to be rude, but you might want to take this complaint somewhere else on the forum. Replying with an unrelated issue on a topic where some members of the development team has been posting in regards to my opening question when they might be pretty busy with other things at the moment (they have lives too) won't make the Wiki any more active.

The forum is pretty quiet, no need for that. :)

Unrelated topic here, but the wiki page about the weapons, the Boss Attack, a stage named Unknown, and 2 more chapters after chapter 11 are not updated as of now. :(

As anyone can sign up to the wiki, you can volunteer yourself to update it if you like. See this thread:

The ending to v6 was planned out a long time ago, unfortunately this was long before Mega Man 11 was announced. Will still don't have many plans for V7, but the story will probably be more light hearted in tone. Don't expect it to be more epic than V6's ending, it won't happen. ;) Still, we don't have much planned so far, there's still fresh soil for ideas and plenty of time to come up with something as we have almost no resources (tiles sprites) for MM11 content.

We're focusing on V6B for now, which is aimed at the core code of the game to make it less of a pain for modders to make new weapons/classes/etc.

More specifically it's because the launcher was written in Autohotkey, which modern Windows detects as a potential threat:

Unfortunately we'll have to create a new launcher from scratch to fix this, which isn't going to happen for a while.

You can download a version without the launcher here:

However, you'll have to use something like ZDL or Doomseeker to launch the game.

For whatever reason the forum software prevented me from issuing medals, but has miraculously started working again today? Anyway, I've issued a bunch of medals I owed people. Please let me know if you're missing any!

Help & Editing / Re: Doombuilder Map Card Script Not Working in V6

You need to update your ACC and acs files in your Doombuilder Compilers folder. Extracting these in there should allow you to compile

Some work in progress screenshots that show unused stuff. Again, spoilers here.

An early concept of Deep Digger was to have it change properties depending on what surface you "dug" from. I still think this a neat idea, but it would require giving every surface texture in the game a property of what "type" it is, which isn't very viable in this engine. Especially if you consider custom maps with new textures.

MM8BDM Discussion / MM8BDM Concepts and unused Assets [MASSIVE SPOILERS]
« on: November 08, 2020, 04:16:04 PM »
Greetings. In this thread I will be posting details around the development and conception of MM8BDM's story campaign. It's interesting to see how things developed over time, and how well things have aligned to my vision of the final game. The team did a great job at adapting what I had in mind and  I am 100% satisfied with how things turned out. However, everyone is different and I'm sure some of you will find interest in some of the unused things for the game, and maybe even disappointment some of these didn't make it in. Enjoy.  :)

Here be spoilers! You've been warned

Pending / Re: [Discussion] CTF weapon layouts are really outdated
« on: November 07, 2020, 07:07:43 PM »
Moved to pending as this is something that needs doing. It was on the table for v6a at one point but other things were more important.

Ohh... Yeah, none of the cheat commands are officially supported (because there's no good way to account for all of them), and using them against bosses can cause abnormal effects like this. Your best bet if you want to cheat is to use the Buddha command, which keeps you alive if you go below 1hp.

Let me know it the issue goes away. If not I'll ask you to reset your ini file and THEN see if it crashes. If it doesn't after that, I'll want to have a look at your ini to try to see what setting is causing it so I can implement a fix.

Your save progress only gets recorded to your ini file when the game closes properly. I.e, if you ran the entire game of 8bdm and it crashed on the final boss, you'd lose everything. I recommend closing the game after using those codes to ensure the data is recorded.

Does it only crash in phase 2 then? Couple of things to try:

Instead of going through the cutscene with wily again, just do the following codes:

mm8bdm_sunstarunlock 3
map unkown6

This will take you straight to phase 2 without any other fluff in the previous cutscene loaded. If it still crashes then, try the same but in software mode.
