  4. So if anybody reads this, is it cool if I post my short stories if they have a lot of drug abuse, violence and strong language? I've been told at other boards that they have zero tolerance for drug stuff.

  5. Last week
  6. I hope I was able to be helpful. I tried at least, lolz

      [1, 1].min should ensure that no percentage modifiers change the damage done, that it will deal 1 damage no more and no less.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      You mean like elemental resistances and PDR? Nope sorry, that's applied after the damage formula. All [1,1].min does is exactly what it says it does: Pick the minimum number out of 1 and 1.

      Yeah, I guess not, lolz

      What's wrong with being a little archaic? I am probably many times more archaic then you are you know.

      ...

      grrr...

      I'M. NOT. INFERIOR.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      PS, seriously, being 'inferior' doesn't even really make sense. There is no real authority, divine or mortal, that can rank beings in any kind of absolute hierarchy that is not ultimately meaningless and arbitrary.  You aren't 'inferior', you aren't 'superior', you aren't even 'equal'. You are exactly one thing: You.

  11. My wife just doesn't understand me. When I say I wanna meld, I don't mean like, you know, do the thing. I mean that I want us to liquify and join together, creating some kind of mid-game boss-type monstrosity. Then people would like, try to get past us. 

     

    You know? Some early 2k end of disc 2 s***. Marriage is complicated.

      PS, I don't think that's gonna help...

      I think the problem is that both of you seem to have an outdated, mostly TV and Movie-based understanding of marriage. This shouldn't be a surprise to either of you, as you've both made it clear you don't plan on having marriage be a part of your life. But yeah, the extravagance and excessiveness.....maybe some people do that, but most people don't.

       

      Also, so extremely cynical, I know it probably doesn't feel this way, but you both kinda sound like Nice Guys TM, talking about Chads and Staceys.....except you're talking about marriage.

      This is weird.

      Ugh... You know what? Just forget I said anything.

  12. Remaking classic JRPGs like Chrono Trigger? A tremendous feat that would be to be done with an engine like RM.

    Would be no less of an undertaking than that of Daggerfall Unity, or FFVI Brave New World...

      What @Kayzee says is true, although I will say that a lot of public plugins already exist for MV that would segue the process quite a bit. More importantly, however, it's not near enough on its own to get it to point of remake. Most of the above mentioned plugins really just emulate what was there, sometimes just to a degree. 

       

      I'm the same as Kayzee as far as the effort required meaning it's better to just make your own game, but that's just my opinion. I hear what you're saying, though @PhoenixSoul.  It makes sense, and to counter all my own arguments, a remake of any kind is always gonna be this much effort, so really.... we're all right... and.... we're all wrong.

       

      How can that be?

      Wait, what's happening? I'm in an old black and grey tube television? Oh....no, is this the end of a Twilight Zone episode???

       

      Rod Sterling:

      "A user who spoke of a remake, and a man who sought to remake arguments themselves. A portrait of a practice in futility. One in which the painter has trapped themselves. Just another frame in a never ending hallway, in an undiscovered wing of -  the Twilight Zone."

      Hehe, right and wrong are like up and down, left and right, or ana and kata. It depends on what way you are facing. :3

       

      BTW, this status seems to be referencing this thread and one thing I noticed is that the OP didn't actually state that they wanted to do a remake, just that they loved the battle system and wanted to know if it was possible in XP.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I was thinking of that thread, but also of RPG Maker based remakes in general since that is a locally popular idea that some have tried, to varying levels of success.

  13. I found a really annoying bug in the custom battle system I wrote for my game that I can't track down. It seems to sometimes randomly skip the player's turn or something. No idea why. It's pretty discouraging. :(

  15. I'm so happy to have a demo of my game out for people to play, after all this time. 😵 It's gone through so much beta testing to get to this point. Not that it's perfect, but I feel like I'm almost ready to finish this project once and for all. I've got to let it go and let it be what it is.

      Thank you!

      My goons did a great job. I should give them a raise.

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      @PhoenixSoul he is the thing playing in the background to whatever I'm doing, pretty much always. Put out a new vid in the last 24 hours for Legend of Kage, it's not bad

       

      @Zen Blood seriously, congrats, keep it moving all the way to a full release! I've been putting at least 5 hours a night/morning for months now with my partner on our project, we're hoping to have a playable version of our battle system just to showcase by the end of next month. I literally cannot wait to get to a demo point, I bet it feels great :D

       

      And I'm not gonna call the cops or anything, I actually had a nice time with the goon, he was just doing his job. He's like, super into MTG, and I've always wanted to get into that. We're supposed to hang out next Wednesday. I wonder what I'm gonna wear. Like, I want him to think I'm cool, but I don't want it to seem obvious.

      Just watched AVGN's review of Legend of Kage last night. Never played it, don't wanna, lolz

  16. I recently had a privacy scare, and as a result, I looked into all accounts that were opened with my email. I'm glad that none of them were accounts I didn't open but there were a few I decided to deactivate anyway.

    Yeah; not opening any new accounts or entering my email into anything for at least two weeks. Should give Yahoo time enough to fix their sh!t.

      I don't know where you got that idea at but you're wrong. Like I said, I've been using this service myself for about 10 years now & I've never had to pay a dime.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Huh, okay. Maybe I was thinking of something else.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      One can get email service from them, though last I checked there is some kind of barrier to entry, I believe it is in the form of requiring a mobile device that can send and receive SMS messages, that I don't think was there ten years ago.

  17. I gotta face that I'm really not cut out for gamedev. I am just too lazy and unmodivated. But that's okay! I still can help other people once and a while, and who knows maybe someday I will actually finish a thing of my own!

      Awww... *snuggles @PhoenixSoul back*

       

      @RavenBlueIndigo Thanks ravie!

  18. I have been manually deleting my twitch stream status posts that don't have replies to avoid accidentally creating a wall of stream links here in the status updates.

      My ISP is an arsehole, my hardware is garbage, therefore watching livestreams is a massive pain on any platform. I'm lucky if I can watch an entire uploaded YouTube video without interruptions!

    3. RavenBlueIndigo

      @Kayzee Not sure, although I HAVE had people from here in the past.

    4. Kayzee

      No harm in announcing them, unless that counts as advertising?

  19. I was gifted Assetto Corsa.
    Only the launcher runs but I'm grateful to have it all the same. Maybe someday I'll have the proper hardware to run races, to do a lot more as well like have a more secure OS.

      My price range...
      At this point...
      Is "I need this for free - I guess I gotta steal it"...
      Because I have no spare money at all...
      But yeah...it's either I spare money and pay no bills and have a computer with no place to sleep...

      You get the idea I'm sure.

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      I'm really sorry to hear that, money is always tight around my home, we have sometimes where we have extra, but most times we're just scraping by. I hope your situation improves soon, you never knew when life my turn around and be your friend (it isn't often, but it happens)

      Not that kind of nut, Raven. 🤣

  21. Once upon a time there was a project. All it wanted to do was not get lost because it's owner became a victim of data loss, either through file corruption, system corruption or some other common problem that everyone is vulnerable to. But it's owner didn't create backups, so it died. The end.

  23. Just made 3 easy, simple and small MZ plugins today(12 hours straight), and I never thought I could ever do this.
    Now I feel myself being very productive, even though I know I'm just utterly flattering myself lol

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, hot damn, look at you! lolz

    2. Arrpeegeemaker

      @DoubleX that's no accomplishment to scoff at! I remember making my first few plugins, I was on top of the world! Keep learning and practicing, and you'll stay feeling that way! Keep pushing the envelope and making more cool things ^^

  24. Why is it so hard to find trees?

      I have some of the Restaff stuffs from between 2012 and 2018, not sure if I have all of it.

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      I was going through some of the resources I had cause I was sure I'd seen trees, PandaMaru has some on a thread over there, you should go through them! There's not a ton, but from what there is, there are seasonal colorations for each of them. Also there are three sizes, so you aren't just stuck with chibi trees

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah, I have those. I have all the animations done by (I forget their moniker) too, over three hundred of them. Lots of BGM/BGS/ME/SE, some of which can be found in paid asset packs, and some have variance in sound/vibrance too.

       

  25. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that THUG Pro runs on this 2008 DELL; the codebase is from a much older game...lolz

    Anyway...trying to implement random chance stuffs and once again, something is breaking...

    1. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      What's the issue? Is the implementation itself not working, or is the implementation breaking other things?

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I dunno; it might be that somewhere, the conditional branches aren't executing properly.

      I'll be looking into it when I get back into VX Ace.

  26. This game seems to be very promising:

    1. PhoenixSoul

      Looks similar to Battletech and the like. Kinda neat.

  27. It's getting near the end of the month, and the beginning of the next! Backup your project or I'm gonna punch you in the back of the neck!

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Good idea! It's been a little while since I did... A few weeks at least!

       

      Edit: Turns out it's only been a week. Backed it up anyway!

    2. PhoenixSoul

      Working on it...takes time because this 2008 DELL POTATO is sloooooowwww...
