Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:16 PM) you just had to put that where you knew i'd see it
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:17 PM) i did
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:17 PM) i'm about to melt with frustration
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:18 PM) gahh, so much yens
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:18 PM) it's stupid expensive and not available digitally and i only want 8 pages
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:18 PM) they're doing this on purpose
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:19 PM) i can't believe we have to go to these lengths to get just a little bit of concept art
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:20 PM) which they are just keeping back for the sake of being perverse and mean-spirited
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:21 PM) we wait 7 years and they put it in a totally unrelated book
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:21 PM) it's... typical
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:22 PM) grasshopper is more interested in showing off the game than nintendo even
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:24 PM) this could have been your yens, nintecmo, but you playing
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:25 PM) if they're keeping the art and stuff squirrelled away somewhere why have they not done this long ago!
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:25 PM) we deserve an artbook of our own surely
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:26 PM) concept art would imply that the games don't spring perfect and polished from the minds of the creators, and that would not fit the sleek company image
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:26 PM) thanks iwata
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:27 PM) okay I'm ordering Shadow Priestess vol.3 at the same time so I don't have to pay double for shipping, but that means it probably won't ship till 9th June
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:27 PM) I suppose we're used to waiting
Homuranagi : (20 May 2015 - 02:28 PM) what else can we do but weep in a corner rocking and telling ourselves it will all be okay
midwinter : (20 May 2015 - 02:29 PM) It's not a coping mechanism, it's a lifestyle

Help Topic: Searching

The search feature can be used to search all areas of the community quickly based on keywords you enter.

Quick Search
You can start a quick search by typing your keywords into the quick-search bar at the top of any page and pressing the "Search" button.

Advanced Options
If instead of typing your keywords into the quick-search bar, you click the "Advanced" link next to it, you will see some advanced options for searching.

The first option, "Find words" is where you can enter the keywords to search for.

The next option, "Find author" can be used to only find content from a specific user. As you begin typing ausername, you should see a dropdown with username suggestions that you can select from.

The next option, "Find by date" allows you to restrict the results to content added between particular dates. To select your date, click the button - this will bring up a calendar. From here you can select any date and your option will be filled into the search form.

The next option, "Find in forum allows you to restrict your results to content within particular forums. You can select multiple options by holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard (or the cmd key if you use a Mac) and clicking on your options.

You can leave any of these options blank, however you must supply at least one search criteria when submitting the form. Once you have filled in the options that you require, press the Do Search button.

Inline Search
When you are viewing a particular topic, or a particular forum, you will notice that the search bar changes from "Search Forum" to "Search This Topic" - this allows you to easily and quickly search through the current topic, forum, or application, without getting search results for other areas of the forum.

Once you have submitted your search, a tabbed page of results will appear - you can change the selected tab to choose which area of the community you wish to search. For example, results under the "Forums" tab will bring up any topics and posts that contain your search keywords, while the "Members" tab will bring up any member accounts that match your search criteria.

You can change the order of the results to sort by relevance or to sort by date using the options at the top of the results page.

The keywords that you searched for will be highlighted like this.

Once you have found the result you are looking for, you can click on it to bring up the page, or, if you are searching through the forums, you can click on the preview icon to preview the search results without having to leave the search page.
