Hello there! (And I need some advice)

Post by SpectralDash on Fri Aug 02, 2013 1:01 am

Even though I've made a few posts here already, I've not yet properly introduced myself.
Greetings, everypony! My name is SpectralDash - you can call me Spectral, though.
Pony Hypno caught my attention a while ago; I just sort of stumbled onto it. After some research, I decided to give it a go.

(Cut to 5 months later) Now, I need some advice. When I started listening to the files, I went with Twilight. Later, I switched to Rainbow (Obviously).
The main thing I'm concerned about is the fact that I didn't listen to the reset in between switching. I realise now that I should have.
Honestly, I'm just a bit worried that there may be (Unwanted) lingering effects from it. 
So, should I use the reset, then start over with Rainbow?

Thanks in advance,
Spectral

Hello and welcome, (again? Smile), Spectral Dash!

I'd agree with Cardspin... from my understanding, the "reset" file(s) would remove the effects of (pony) hypnosis so you can begin again from scratch.

By observing one other who has gone through this process of changing files... it seems to be very, very important to do so... probably spending a week or more with the "reset" file(s) to avoid any identity issues from changing files.

I will say I went three months without a reset since I only listened to a different file one single time....but then things got pretty bad quickly. Unless you have it under control, reset probably is your best option.

Oh, wow. That was fast.
Thanks for all the quick replies, everypony.
Looks like I'll be spending a while with the reset file.

Heh, yeah. I guess I probably should have posted my "Hello" before I jumped into other ponies' journals. Rainbow Dash Derpy 
Anyway, thanks again everypony, for the advice.

Hello and welcome to the board.

If you are already listening for a while to the Rainbow Dash files and have yet to experience any negative effects despite the Rainbow files is fully working. I think you should be fine skipping the reset file.
Althrough its use highly recommended if you just switched.

Several hours and one reset file later...
That was bizarre. I don't even know how to explain it. I (Deliberately) went in as Twilight, and during the reset it was like the purple unicorn sort of... Fell away from me.
It gets especially weird when I realise that it's falling away to reveal a familiar cyan colour, complete with wings and everything.
I trotted out happily.
...
Did I break something? Rainbow Dash What

Maybe I really, really wanted to keep the Rainbow Dash effects, therefore I did.
...Or I may have just completely borked it.

It might not have worked at all, of course, but I certainly feel as if something's changed.
For the better, I hope.

Confused, yet hopeful,
Spectral

Hello! :D 

In the situation you're in, what with keeping the RD effects but feeling like the Twilight effects have been removed, I'd personally go with another reset juuust to be safe :) But it's all up to you!

While I appreciate the suggestion, I'm not sure I really need to.
I certainly don't really want to; While it might seem silly, the concept of losing my wings is sort of... Frightening. I dunno. Rainbow Dash Concern 
(The reset file has a part about wings going away - My entire... Everything certainly didn't agree with that... Which might be part of why I kept them, and pretty much everything else)
Besides, I've noticed already that things are sort of "Falling into place", if that makes sense.
...It's a bit hard to word this sort of thing. It's mostly just little things that I hardly noticed until they changed. 

I was on a bit of a break from all of this because I was kinda worried about some sort of repercussions from the Twilight files, but I don't feel worried anymore.
It's like I've broken up this big cloud in my head. Rainbow Dash Ache 
Hopefully I can get back into some sort of routine again soon.
