  1. I believe he keeps them here, though it makes them a lot harder to download than this collection: https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7913598/MakutaMutran Of course, it's still easier to download than the Wall of History's websites. Speaking of, the Wall of History seems to have the intro preview of Bionicle Legends 7: Invasion, in which Matoro got possessed by the Makuta on his way down the Cord, presumably because it was briefly posted somewhere before it was cancelled, at https://wallofhistory.com/story/no/04/07/01/00/ . Also, there are a few lines of dialog cut from the final chapter of MNOG that Templar posted at https://templargames.tumblr.com/post/183938904297/program-9-the-light-of-victory-and-its-shadow . Are either of those of interest to either of your projects? Also, I do have some ideas on how to add the plot points I previously mentioned in, though they would likely involve inserting quotes between blocks of text from the books, which you said you're trying to avoid. To illustrate what I mean, I attached a list I wrote of some of the additions I would make to various chapters of Book 1: Infection based on some of the lines Templar wrote for MNOG that were cut from the walkthrough or the final game.

  2. When you say Dark709's did a number on your machine, did you mean it had a virus?
  3. I wasn't at the Mask of Light premiere at Legoland, but I remember these banners around the Imagination Zone afterward: I believe Dylan and Cole Sprouse were at the premiere, and I also believe the Toa Nuva briefly invaded Miniland, USA, but I don't have pictures of those.
  4. Yeah, for years their showcase site still worked. They must've shut it down within the past year or so. I captured the 3DXMLs from it back in 2011. But by the time I figured out how to datamine the base w3d files they were generated from a few years later, they had already been taken down, years before the showcase was. You can see what their showcase looked like at https://web.archive.org/web/20180415082102/http://www.templar.com/showcase/
  5. My main priority is converting the other 3DXMLs to a format that such processes would accept, which I don't know how to do.
  6. I ripped a number of Galidor set models from Templar's Galidor Glincher as 3DXMLs a while back. One of them I converted to DAE and then to .blend. Now that it's down, and so are the Galidor-specific fan forums, I thought I should post them here. http://www.mediafire.com/file/fy4nbjse477up7d/GalidorModels.7z/file
  7. I thought the Encyclopedia Updated canonized the part of the MNOG's version of the Manas battle where the Kaita disabled them by destroying their heating towers. But Infection (Complete) uses the full Book/Style Guide version instead. Was that an intentional decision, or something that might need correction? Also, the MNOG walkthrough mentioned that Maku mentioned trouble in Po-Koro just prior to Takua's conversation with Nokama, but didn't include what she actually said. Should this also be added in? For reference, speaking to her in her hut at this time causes her to exclaim: "I've heard that there's trouble in Po-Koro! Oh no, poor Huki..." "Why does Nokama make me stay in the village at a time like this? Huki might need me!" Additionally, the Makoki Stones aren't mentioned in Book 1 - Infection at all. Should a reference to the fact that the Toa collected them and used them to open Mangaia be mentioned?
  8. It sounds like the kind of music Toonami would put in one of their commercials or bumpers in the 00s. Which is a good thing, in my opinion.
  9. This is a really great resource of Bionicle information. However, I think Book 7 should at least include a summary of the events of Bionicle Legends 7: Invasion, since we know the gist of what happened, just not the particulars.
  10. Dude, all your Bionicle videos have been taken down from Vimeo. Is there anywhere else you could post them?
  11. While not a working offline version, partly because all the php files can only be called and not accessed, I have managed to use datamining and web archive indexing to find almost every file from www.menol.org. All the SWFs and XMLs should be there, so at the very least one can view all the cutscenes and locales, and I have maintained the website's folder structure. I've collected them all into a 7z archive here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/0p6cc0k6ou75kq7/menol.org.7z
  12. Well, it seems that once again, Toatapio Nuva managed to save posts from the old boards which I did not. Well done.
  13. Back around 2007, someone on the old now-deleted boards posted a fan-theory here: that Mata Nui is a Giant Robot, and the Matoran and the other Bio-Mechanicals lived inside him. The member posted detailed descriptions of his evidence, complete with large images and visual aids, such as the fact that the two sun-holes looked like eyes if I'm not mistaken. The original poster even got an award for their theories from one of the Admins or Mods for how plausible and well-thought out the theory was. And a year or two later, it turned out to be true; the theorizer was completely correct in his assertions. I'd like to see that topic again, but the old boards were removed years ago. I think it should be preserved for its historical significance to S&T. So I ask you all: if anyone saved a copy or at least part of the post, or if someone has the means to dig it up from the old boards if they still exist, or even if anyone just remembers the topic, could they come forward to share their knowledge of the matter?
  14. Onua finding his Kaukau Nuva was actually told in Bionicle Chronicles 4: Tales of the Masks. He found it in an underground cavern guarded by Manas. Whenua was with him on his search too. I also have two additional quotes from the individual posts in the topic, which I saved. They're basically Greg answering some questions of fans: Nice, I'll add it to the OP.
  15. The Toa Metru placed them around the island as a means to test the next toa to come (which I am sure they thought would be matoran empowered by their toa stones, not the power unleashed and serve a beacon to castaway heroes), while I think Artakha had created and placed the Golden Masks in their place via agents/servants. The Kanohi Nuva were placed their by an Order of Mata Nui member on behalf of Artakha, which Makuta has found and slain and Vezon would later take this member's toa canister to reach Voya-Nui to the south. This I know, but what I don't know is how specifically the Toa collected each and every little mask. Did Tahu find his Kanohi Pakari in the Motara Desert guarded by a Nui-Jaga? Did Pohatu find the Kanohi Mahiki after fending off a Tarakava at the Papa-Nihu Reef? Did Onua find the Kaukau Nuva under Lake Kanae after beating Pahrak-Kal to it? These specifics are forever lost to time because the writers never took the time to fill in all the blanks, and because the programmers were laid off before their game could answer them. That's why I and so many others in this community are eager to find and restore a copy of the unfinished Legend of Mata Nui video game.
