  1. I've recently concluded that the transcription of Quest for the Toa in the Complete versions of Book 1: Invasion isn't the most accurate one out there, or at least parts of it aren't. For starters, the first person who talks to you in the game looks like Jala, but the PDF calls him an Onu-Matoran. He is called Jala in Pages 145-153 of ToaTapio Nuva's own Bionicle story compilation, at http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/tapio/Legend/the_bionicle_story.doc . MakutaMutran's version, specifically The Dark Time Chapter 2, calls him Aft, a Ta-Matoran who bears little resemblance to Jala, and his version later omits Vakama's line about Takua being an amateur. Though I'd have to review the text and the game more thoroughly to be sure, I think Tapio's version is the most accurate account of Quest for the Toa.
  2. https://biosector01.com/wiki/Mata_Nui_Online_Game_Walkthrough has most of the dialog, but a few off-handed comments were omitted. For example, if you talk to Maku just before you first leave for Po-Koro, she'll say, "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!" Even though those quotes aren't in the walkthrough, it ironically references them as Takua's motivation for going to Po-Koro in the first place. And that's not even counting the cut dialog Templar recounted in their game dev blog.
  3. 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.

  4. When you say Dark709's did a number on your machine, did you mean it had a virus?
  5. 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:
  6. 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/
  7. My main priority is converting the other 3DXMLs to a format that such processes would accept, which I don't know how to do.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Dude, all your Bionicle videos have been taken down from Vimeo. Is there anywhere else you could post them?
  13. 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
  14. Well, it seems that once again, Toatapio Nuva managed to save posts from the old boards which I did not. Well done.
