    Forcing a skill onto an actor

    Oh, I see, it was a message error, not a discard issue. For me, the message just gave me a script eval error. I actually like this system much better in general; makes it easier for the player to see the weapon-breaking message in battle. Thank you very much for your help!
  4. I was mostly just teasing you with the grumpy gus thing you know. :3 Though one thing does kinda bug me. Rather then just dislike it, you said it was "badly designed". Now design can be all kinds of subjective for sure, but when I think of bad design I usually think of something that is more objectively functionally broken somehow or has horrible clashing colors or something and I just don't see that in the night theme. I think it's perfectly well designed for what it's going for, even if what it's going for isn't something you appreciate.

    Forcing a skill onto an actor

    Are you getting the error "log_window" for Game_Map that's what I got. It looks like the call for showing a message is in the vx style of code. I changed to this def broken_weapon_text(actor) message = "%s's %s broke!" % [actor.name, @non_durability_name] #~ SceneManager.scene.log_window.add_text(message) $game_message.add(message) end line 151 - selchar weapon durability script
  6. The collision in one of my tilesets is pretty messed up. I select the [o] to make a tile passable, and it won't do it. It seems to randomly select a tile property. So I have tiles that should be collision tiles passable and vice versa. No, nothing is being done with the foreground layer. Is there something wrong with my file or am I just being dumb?

    State notetags through passive skills

    Yeah; don't run straight eval on notetags with specialized strings like that. I think one has to specify what to eval in the notetag, and that is if the interpreter will allow it (not sure - dearest love @Kayzee likely knows).

    So it seems the game crashes once the weapon's durability goes down to 0 using this function. The game probably doesn't know what to do once the weapon disappears (I have it set so that the weapon vanishes once it reaches 0). Any idea how this can be fixed? (sorry I'm not very good at scripting...)

    Forcing a skill onto an actor

    I assumed that since you were 'making' a cooking system that you were programming one. either by script or by event. If so then use the script call to call the interpreter function.

    FAE Part 1: History of Fae

    FAE is one of the better stories I've ever created, in my personal opinion. It is now in it's fifth year of development, but I have done almost no work on it in the last two years aside from trying to finish the first volume on a few different occasions. It all started in 2016 when I began to watch Stranger Things for the first time. It left a huge welt of inspiration and muse across my face and I had no earthy idea what to do with it. This was very new to me, very refreshing and exhilarating, but still new. I wasn't accustomed to writing pre-teens, or even teens as main characters of any kind in most of my role plays, let alone my solo projects. It brought me back to Earthbound in a way that really resonated with me. Then you toss in elements of controlled cosmic horror? So I came up with a little something different using some of the themes and influences that had inspired me. FAE is a story about a town, the families that live there, and the knots their destinies form over generations. It's also a tale of two worlds apart. The Realm of Terra, and the Realm of Fae. One world young and dying but brimming with potential. One world ancient and decayed. But most importantly, it's the story of a being caught between those worlds, and the beings who stranded him there. FAE starts off in 2020, in the quiet, unremarkable town of White River Valley. It follows the lives of several local families living ordinary, boring American lives free from compelling drama or super powers. But like an iceberg afloat in the ocean, a mountain of history and lore hides just beneath the surface. History of Fae Ruled by the Prime Fae of the three houses Order, Wisdom, and Chaos, the Realm of Fae was a majestic world much like our own. It was a planet teeming with Fae cultures and nations. At the center of those cultures was Yaggdrasil. The Tree of Life. A towering, enchanted tree resembling an American sycamore with leaves the size of a trampoline canvas. The tree is revered as a deity-like figure, and the source of all lifeforce. It is known by the Primes that Yaggdrasil is a conduit between the realms. For eons the Realm of Fae was a happy, healthy, stable realm, but the conflict between Order and Chaos seemed inevitable. The flame and ruin of a Fae war ripped the realm to shreds, and the House of Chaos was emerging as the clear victor. The Primes of Order and Wisdom so feared the Prime of Chaos they devised a way to exile him through Yaggdrasil into the Realm of Terra. Even after the war subsides, Yaggdrasil is decaying in the Realm of Fae. Fae no longer possess their gifts, and have become mortal. Capable of aging and dying, the entire population wither away, leaving only the Primes of Order and Wisdom. Before this process is complete, remaining Fae embark on a pilgrimage through Yaggdrasil and into Terra, hoping to survive the death of their world by seeking asylum here. Inevitably, they are met by the Prime of Chaos, who has been trying to get back to his own Realm for over two thousand years. He has been playing God with a young Earth, creating war and chaos from one continent to another. Their conflict with him ends in his once again being tricked and cheated. They trapped him outside his prime vessel (body), and seal it away in a temple beneath the White River forest. This seal is performed by a Fae of Order, and only a descendant of their bloodline can break the seal. Without his prime vessel, he is like any other Fae and significantly less powerful. That takes us into the modern age.

    Light VS Dark - What's Your Theme Preference?

    Just telling it how it is. My opinion is worth no less because it's not candy coated and PC filtered. Or it could be because you like the Purple Monster, and I'm calling for it's head. It's all relative.

    Hi I'm new

    hi and welcome
  16. Heeeeey.... I like the night theme. I like it in all it's pruplly glory! It's whimsical~! Onesie some times you can be a real grumpy gus party pooper you know that? ...But I guess so can I so, guess I can't complain too much. Ah who am I kidding, I probably will anyway! Still would like a darker dark theme, but I wouldn't mind keeping the purple somewhat. :3
  17. So an MMO is a massive undertaking requiring a lot of stuff that I just cannot do alone. Even with a bit of IT and coding/business support (which I have), it's still a behemoth task.

     

    Meantime I'm doing the Zelda-like I have been wanting to do for some time. I'm going to use a very limited amount of graphical resources and scripts, and try to make something of a showcase game for practice and the beginning of a portfolio for recruiting help with an MMO.

    Forcing a skill onto an actor

    This seems interesting, but I'm a little confused about how to use this. Could you give some instructions on how to use this little script? Everything I tried doesn't make the durability go down and sometimes crashes the game...

    Light VS Dark - What's Your Theme Preference?

    Although I don't use it, this is excellent news for the site. Certainly puts any issues surrounding the Purple Monster to bed.
  20. The current dark theme has poor design indeed. In fact, it's not even a dark theme, but a "night" theme. It isn't really supposed to be the real dark theme, so its objective isn't getting rid of all bright colors. Anyway, the current night theme will be gone and is irrelevant to this topic. The dark theme I have in mind is a theme, that I'd make from scratch, that would be properly dark, something close (if not the same) to the screenshot I've posted earlier. --- That is correct I initially aimed to keep only one theme, so that it is easier for me to maintain it. I expected up to a single or maybe two votes on the light theme, but currently there are 7 users who prefer the light theme or would like to have a choice, so for me that means, that there is that demand for a light theme and that my extra work will actually matter, at least for some. So in the end, I'll keep both, where the dark theme will be redone. However, that will have to wait for a forum software update. These updates tend to ruin a lot of things, so I'll wait for one and then get to reworking things. In the meanwhile, if you have any suggestions regarding site appearance and/or layout, feel free to share these. Perhaps a single high-contrast colorful with tons of lime green eye-wrecking theme would work better? Hmmmmmm Plot twist, it's not just red, but a darker shade of pink - strawberry-ish color.

    Light VS Dark - What's Your Theme Preference?

    The purple on grey is the majority of the problem. It creates a chaotic aesthetic that feels like a children's website made with phpbb2 on one of the old free services that had thousands of horrific themes in any color combo you can possibly imagine. More often than not the point of a dark theme is to get rid of brightness, not replace white with bright, alternative colors. It's been a long time since I saw a purple theme on a board.
  22. Well I would replace the red borders with purple like the current night theme but it seems fine with me!

    Light VS Dark - What's Your Theme Preference?

    When I first read the thread, the title suggested a choice between the two may be made at some point. Like many, many sites, I thought they were doing away with themes completely. When I saw that everyone and their pet prefers the dark theme, I said it would affect the frequency with which I use the site. And it would. Stylized site themes that aren't well designed (like this site's dark theme) give me a headache.
  24. Team dark forever I say! We might have a few flashbangs, but still better. If someone doesn't like it that's what the light theme is for! Only problem is it will break all my invisatext I secretly scattered around my posts. Oh well! edit: Also: Well discord's dark theme is basically white on dark grey and very few people complain about that! The way people see discord's light theme on the other hand... Anyway you don't need to use it, it wouldn't be the default anyway. That's why different themes exist ya know.

    Hi I'm new

    Hello and welcome! The green triangle-- do you mean the button that takes you to the top? That's all it does, it allows you to jump back to the top of the page. (If you have any troubles with it, please let me know) I hope you'll have a good time here and good luck with your games!

    Hi I'm new

    I've been putting this off for a few days because social interaction is scary, but that's something I need to work on anyway. I just started RPG Maker after knowing about it for about a year, and am already neck-deep in yanfly videos and learning Javascript, (I enjoy going overboard with prep). I have most of a general synopsis and setting for my gameworld and dumb fantasy names picked out for the party members. Making games is something I've wanted to do for ages and my notepad app is filled with different initial concepts, (I use colornote on android and highly recommend it). No guarantees on how talkative I'm going to be but I'd like to be some version of actively present here. Also I have no idea what the floating green triangle is trying to tell me under my profile, sorry if it's something I'm supposed to address.
