Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

Bash is the command-line shell used by most Linuxes and some other Unix-like systems, like OSX. When you open a terminal, that's the text interface that you're interacting with. Most of the time, you're just using it to invoke particular binaries and pass arguments to them, or interact with services. It's good to note that it's also a full scripting language, though.

Yeah, looks like Git Bash is an attempt to emulate the bash environment on Windows for the purposes of using git. Obviously, on Linux, it's just called using git.

Either open up the Software Center (the app store) and search for git, or just open a terminal and run

 

sudo apt-get install git

 

Spoiler

 

In either place, you'll be prompted for your password, then the system will fetch the package and install it.

Alright, Googling that one did explain it. However, it looks like everything resets itself every time I load from the USB drive, so that would mean I'd need to redownload Git every time I started up. Not sure that's the most efficient way to do it on a limited data connection...

Did the persistence file not take when you set up the install on the flash drive?

 

Edit: Basically, you're going to have to make the flash drive over again, but this time, you didn't delete the .iso file ... right?

No, I used the USB installer as directed. But when I start up it gives me an option to try Ubuntu, or install Ubuntu... I'm guessing the try function doesn't save files?

"Try" is what you want, but it's supposed to be saving changes you make to that system to a persistence file created on the flash drive. 

 

Basically, the .iso method of booting a Linux OS is based on using CD images,* which means that the system is compressed in ways that wouldn't be possible in a normal install - a native install of the same software on the same flash drive would take over 4 gigs. The persistence file stores changes made to the system and overlays them into a virtual filesystem over the CD image you're running from. If you had the persistence option checked and gave it 1-2 gigs of space, your changes should be sticking - settings changes, installed software, everything. 

 

If you install to disk, obviously, it'll also keep your changes, and that might be worth doing for the two weeks you're going to be using it, for convenience's sake at the very least. But you should be seeing those changes sticking now anyway.

 

Boot into Windows and plug in the flash drive. Is there a file in the root of the drive called casper-rw? That's the persistence file itself that saves the changes.

 

Screenshot%20from%202016-01-29%2011-07-3

 

 

* Edit: I mean, the .iso is still a disk image of a CD, that didn't change, but the system was built around using actual CDs, so the implementation on flash drives, while kinda awesome, is counter-intuitive in that changes made to the system aren't saved where the system is.

Oh, hold on, lemme check in Windows.

 

Edit: Okay, looking at the contents of the USB, there is no root folder shown, but there is a casper folder.

 

Edit edit: Ah, I think there was an option to create a persistence file that I missed. But the max size of said file is only 4089 MB on the installer I used.

 

Edit edit edit: That's like 4 GB right? Should be plenty.

And yeah, you can't see the proper filesystem of the boot drive from Ubuntu, since it's all being virtualized into a mess of overlays and weirdness to make go. Edit: And in this case, you'd need to elevate to admin privileges to see it anyway.
