Ask @dansalvato:

Hello, we uploaded a 2x2 emote (meant to be used AS a 2x2 emote, and not meant to bypass size requirements). They were rejected, though i did not include the intention of them being used as a 2x2 emote as a note. Should I resubmit with the note? Channel : robanddan Emotes: rndROB(BL,BR,UL,UR)

Rob Shepard
The unabridged version of the guideline is this: If your 2x2 emote has some kind of creativity/utility/combo-ability to it that isn't possible as a single emote, then it's accepted. It's typically declined if the reason seems to be "We want it bigger" or "You can't see enough detail if it's a single emote". If you explain your reasoning in the emote notes on why it's better as a 2x2 emote, then it's more likely to be accepted. We also usually accept 2x1 or 1x2 emotes.

Sir, where's the problem with these emotes? https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/285563204267016193/332309246677090305/capturafranker2.png I can't submin em and I think all is right. Could you help me please?

Please message http://twitch.tv/dansalvato with a link to these emotes so I can figure out why this might be happening. You could try using a different Web browser in case there's some kind of bug.

Did you get my question about why I can't use my custom emotes even though they got approved and I added them to my channel? Please answer.

Jacki
They should be usable on your channel within an hour after adding them. If they still don't work, there might be something wrong with your FFZ extension. You should check to see if other channels' FFZ emotes work. If they don't, then you can try reinstalling FFZ.

where are those notes? https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/285563204267016193/330130282726555650/image.png I know you like ban words in other languages but what is wrong with "Thinking" and "Wink"?

Emote names can't be common words such as "Wink". You have to pick an emote name that isn't something people would type in normal English, such as "WinkFace" or "ffzWink". You can find the notes on the emote's page by clicking on the emote name.

Hi Dan! I've encountered a strange issue with the search function on the FFZ public library. I've submitted a bunch of emotes with Histy in the name. Searching for 'hist' shows them all, but searching for 'histy' doesn't. Can you help me at all?

M0bilD
That definitely is a strange issue. The search function is really awful right now, and we're looking to improve it in the near future, so you can expect it to be fixed once we do that.

Regarding 20XXTE. I have used it to save some matches in .gci format. How do I convert them to a format readable by other programs? I want the full input data for each frame so I can process it with, say, Python. BTW thanks for your work, 20XXTEis crazy awesome!

I don't think anyone ever fully reverse engineered the compression algorithm for save files, so right now there's no good way to get the data right from the .gci file. If you load the file in Dolphin and do a memory dump, it's possible, though.

4-piece emotes are gaining popularity on twitch. Many partnered streamers I have subscriptions too have them. Why was my 4-piece emote denied on FFZ? I am in no way trying to bypass the size limitations and I intend them to be four separate emotes. I can provide examples if necessary.

Kamil
A long time ago, we were getting a ton of submissions where people would simply take all kinds of emotes or images and submit them as 4-part or even 9-part emotes. Because it was causing a ton of uncreative, low-quality content to flood FFZ, we started prohibiting submissions of emotes that are enlarged into 4-part emotes. If you think your emotes don't fall into this category, then feel free to message me on Twitch with the emotes in question and an explanation of their use case.

Is there a setting to tab complete emotes in the chat itself without having to Tab then Enter in the Tab completion "window" ? If not, could you add a setting for it?

Adding exactly what you request may happen in the future but could take a fair amount of work, but I'll pass it onto the team. But if you enable "Tab-complete Alternatie Input", you can cycle through options with Tab and use Space to confirm, which is more similar to what you describe. It's less tedious than having to use arrow keys and Enter.

Would you be willing to add a "Hide Bits" feature to FFZ? I find bits to be a huge eyesore and this is the one feature that's keeping me from completely switching over to FFZ. It essentially just removes everything bits related (badges, all popups, chat buttons, etc.)

We have a lot of options to hide bits-related stuff. You can hide pinned cheers, condense all of a message's bits into a single item (reducing spam), and disable the bits animation as well. It doesn't 100% hide/disable absolutely everything bits-related, but it definitely takes care of eliminating the more intrusive aspects of them.

Hi, I was having trouble fluttering on Yoshi's Story. I'm trying to do an all melons run, casually, and I'm struggling on the 5-1 melon flutter. Was wondering if you had any advice on how I could improve my fluttering? Also, I'm playing on the N64, so is that a problem?

At the peak of Yoshi's flutter, or a few frames before the peak, release A and hold it again as quickly as possible. If you keep A released for too long then Yoshi will lose height.

hey had a question about emotes ; so like is there a way to download the emotes cuts if i wanted to use them on discord cuz downloading them directly gives a small size ; i know its a weird question but aprreciate it if you can help out

If you click on each emote's page you can view the 4x size emote and download that one. But there's no option to mass download emotes or anything.

on frankerfacez i noticed upon visiting Sylux98s channel he has well over the maximum of emotes i was informed to believe we were able to have actually appear on our channel that being 200. What made the rule not apply to said streamer cause id love to have more emotes appear on my channel.

Sylux98 is an old-school FFZ user who had that many emotes before we updated our system with the emote limits, etc. Old users with more than the max emotes were given that many as their max, so as to not force them to remove emotes. Very few users have that at this point.
