  1. Past hour
  2. I know I've seen some of these resources here from somewhere, but I just can't place my finger where...



    The last thing I want is to be sued for accidentally infringing copyright.

  3. Today
  4. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo About to go live with some Hitman 2, and then Voter's Choice! We'll see what happens!

  5. Yesterday
  6. I'm not much of a writer, so don't ask me about it.:lol:


    Ku ku ku...

    The vile wench who was sent by church to beguile my own flesh and blood...


    How brave of you to open this sacred Spoiler!

    Ku ku ku...

    Now that you have borne witness of this forbidden ceremony I can no longer allow you to return alive.


    The Noble Darkness...


    (In your inner mind, you said this very loud "The hell are you talking about")


  7. I know you from rpgmakerweb forums. Yes, I am called Thomas Smith there as well.

    1. EpicFILE


      Ya, we've interacted fairly often there.

      I joined this forum since mid 2015, and have been inactive since late 2015.

      It's kinda funny to know I'm an older member here, but a younger member there. :D

  9. Last week
  10. Ugh! I am having weird bugs and I don't know why. Making proper turnbased movement is harrrd. :/

    1. Kayzee


      Yay! I fixed it! :3 One down, two billion to go...

    2. PhoenixSoul




      I tried implementing something myself (related to my current project), but my skills are far less than able to figure out what I needed so I shelved it for the time being. I may find a workaround at some point, I'm not sure.


      Bugs, dupes, and sass; that's my interactions with that mistress by the name of Ruby...

    3. Kayzee


      I think you will find that all programing can be like that. Heck, all communication maybe. That's just what happens when you need to translate thoughts into a form that can be understood by other things. You rarelly know if you are really on the same page until something goes wrong.

  11. I'm kind of new to these forums - joined a while ago, but never actually did anything in it.

      Lurking in the shadows, eh? You can come into the light. We don't bite. Well, Charizard bites, but he is easily distracted by food and liquor. 

  12. I hate being sick, ughh...

      Get well soon. I feel you; I was sick earlier this month. *hugs*

    3. Crescent


      thanks you two *hugs back* <3


      @Saeryen it sucks - especially when you have a lot of pending work to do and you're not feeling okay enough to work on things ><

    4. PhoenixSoul


      I was sick the first part of December and for the end of December, all related to the feasting days and the change in the weather. I'm still recovering a bit but on the mend, for the most part.

      Being sick is no fun, no matter what ails you...it sucks monkey farts.

  13. After buying some tinkering material on Steam for really cheap, I'm back in the gamedev scene.

    I have most of the Castle Tower mapped, and transitions made between floors.

    Still figuring out how deep the Castle Abyss goes, and what other rooms need to be added to the rest of the Castle.

    I'm also still trying to figure out if I should have the main party be one actor and switch between male and female, or stick to having two separate actors, one for each gender.

    No story line for determining gender/personality yet.

    1. Kayzee


      If the main party is one actor and you can switch between male and female, it would be amusing if you added ome way to do it in-game. :P

    2. PhoenixSoul


      Yeah, that could be plausible.

      I'm just trying to figure things out first.


      I've had no luck in finding the full size battlers for the VX Ace RTP, so I'm not sure as to how I'll be implementing the battles for some of the Monster Cards...(I've only fleshed out eight of those thus far)

  14. What does THIS mean?



    1. PhoenixSoul


      VX Ace, or MV?


      If VX Ace...

        def process_escape_character(code, text, pos)
          case code.upcase


      It means there's an escape character that's causing Ruby to throw a fit.

    2. TobiObito4ever


      VX Ace. It was a relatively minor fix. ^^;

    3. PhoenixSoul



      Glad I was able to help (if I did...)

  15. Thinks of something... Gets an idea... Implements it... 2iNIemX.png

  16. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo About to go live with some Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne! Tonight, I best the Amala Temple and onward! Feel free to drop by!

  17. I'm not gonna say 'sorcery', I wouldn't use the term 'dark forces', I just... I think I've said enough.

    1. lonequeso


      What dark sorcery are you up to? :P 

    2. Perang Cemen

      Perang Cemen

      Consume dark power and create light from it.

      No actually I just capture some Fireflies and seal them inside Lantern.

    3. lonequeso


      I catch bees and fairies in mine.

  18. You know what one of the most frustrating things about the RPG Maker VX Ace engine to me? It don't let you make alpha masks for things! Though I suppose you could use a subtractive blended sprite behind an addictive blended sprite. Also annoying: That you can't render graphics objects to a bitmap. Yeah yeah, I bet MV fixes all this or something but I still like VX Ace damn it! :P

    2. PhoenixSoul


      I see.

      You're trying to make the engine use layers for image manipulation. I don't see why it couldn't be done...


      I'm still trying to figure out the syntax framework for something I had seen for equipment actually adding layers onto the sprite image (Victor Engine's Visual Equip), for use on faces (like adding/removing scars, among other things), though I'm not sure I want it tied to equips.


      Anyway, that's just something I have as a secondary, nothing to do with my current project.

    3. Kayzee


      Well drawing stuff on top of other stuff works well enough, erasing stuff is the part VX Ace can't do well. Really I want to do some really specific things that most people would find unnecessary. You can draw a bitmap on top of another bitmap using a bitmap's 'blt' method or create another sprite on top of or behind a sprite if you want to do something like layers.





    4. PhoenixSoul


      I think that's what Visual Equip does, at least for sprites...

  19. To this day, I wonder how or why my profile apparently has over 33,000 views...

    1. lonequeso


      I spam click everything I see :lol:

  20. Rumor has it another Fable game is in the works. Ooo....


    1. PhoenixSoul


      I've yet to have the privilege of playing any of the Fable games, so...

  21. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo About to go live with Co-Op Terraria and then I'ma switch to Voter's Choice at midstream! Feel free to drop by!

  22. Can you upload fan art to the gallery?

    1. PhoenixSoul


      I don't see why not.

      I mean, it is your art, even if it is fan art...

    2. Tarq


      As long as it doesn't breach any of the other forum rules (offensive, sexually explicit, etc.) then you can upload whatever you want there.

  23. Which number is the most disagreeable? 


    Nein! :lol:

    1. Tarq


      Well, seven ate nien. While nien was a bit of a curmudgeon I think cannibalism's pretty disagreeable.

    2. Guyver


      I thought it was the number in my bank account, I disagree with it being so low.

  24. Good to see several businesses seriously upping their green game recently :) 

  25. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo About to go live with some Deadly Premonition! Feel free to drop by!

  26. I guess the ninja is unavailable, and shiggy is mute or something?

  27. Earlier
  28. your username is a pakistani name, is that your actual name? I'm from Pakistan, are you from there too? :D

    1. Naveed_Ashfaq


      It is my actual name, but I'm actually from Bangladesh (currently living in Canada). Southeast Asian names tend to be very similar I guess, especially Muslim names :D

  29. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo About to go live with a test stream of Okami HD! Half stream is voter's choice, so let's see what we end up doing then! Feel free to drop by!

  30. @Cookie Ninja you said your specialty was math. I made some program to do my MIT homework, and I fear it's ALL wrong. trying to scale some math so I don't get infinity as an answer

      I had to fill out a table.A88LYLX.png
      I used ruby with my own methods. When I went to plug the answers into the f(n) on the left, it gave correct answers except for n log2(n) which I got WAY wrong apparently.

    3. Shiggy


      Sorry late answer
      Some of your results are weird, even simpler stuff like
       f(n) = n for 1 second , you should 1 million (because f(n) is in microseconds not miliseconds)

      so you need to solve f(n) = t (where t is your time in microseconds)
      you could make a program run loop n until f(n) > t and return n-1 but it might be a bit long to run (except for factorial 2^n maybe)

      so the other way is just to solve f(n) = t <=> n = g(t) where g is the reverse function of t
       Most of them are easy
      log2 n is 2^n
      sqrt(n) is n^2
      n is n
      but n log2 n is indeed trickier.
      After a quick  research I found this:

      Good luck
      Btw computations should be ok for ruby , you don't care about floating points and bignum support in ruby seems good (bignum and floats are the main thing to worry about when programming computation)

    4. Asharonapaul


      the answers quickly exceed a google plex, so I scaled with log10(n1)
