  3. You implement one puzzle and another puzzle breaks. The wonders of coding, everybody. QwQ

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yup, yup.

      Implement one feature, have to fix/modify another, compat scriptlet, etcetera.

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Unfortunately that kind of thing often happens when you have lots of scripts by different people that all step over each other. It tends to be less of a problem the more simple and self-contained a script is though.

      Sometimes, you wish the code you have is modular. Other times, you wish you combined them into one harmonious code. Things break when it's not handled properly. Say, you used the same variables but forgot to check that another piece doesn't use them anymore. 

  4. Hmmm... I think my little lunisolar calendar project is coming along nicely. I had to totally revamp it though. It's still probably not that accurate but... honestly, what calendar really is?

      Hehe, thanks. Still not sure what I want to use this all for, if anything, but I like the idea. :3

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I like that it prints to the console, though it would be neat to see it appear on the menu screen or something of the like.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, well all I have done for now is come up with the basic calculations. I will need to refine it more if I want to do anything more useful.

  5. Syntax is dumb sometimes, but if I can manage to run everything on Self Switches instead of a new global switch for Every. Little. Thing.

     

    Then I think we're good.

      One bit of advice: The message script, if configured incorrectly, it will affect the battle windows.

    3. Zvart

      Zvart

      I'll keep that in mind, thank you.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      You're very welcome, dear.

      I will say that there is a possibility that my experience with said script might of been because I had many other scripts in place that may of had a hand in interfering. Even still, I didn't want to throw caution to the wind.

  6. Earlier
  7. - Sister buys a cinnamon scented candle melt/freshner.

    - Tells her I'm allergic to cinnamon so she can only use it in her bedroom with her door closed.

    - Comes home from work, smells cinnamon, sister says "I forgot".

     

    So now my throat hurts, It's hard to breathe and my sister just sits casually in her room like "oopsies".

     

    This is why I'm not a family person.

      @PhoenixSoul I wouldn't say she did it intentionally, but she's rather ignorant so I believer her when she "forgot". In other words, she never paid attention when i told her in the first place.

       

      Thankfully I'm not deadly allergic but it does cause alot of discomfort.

       

      @Rikifive Lucky~ I've got two allergies, but the harmful one I don't even need.  Theres an ingredient in travel sickness tablets that make me swell up and my whole body numb. That was a fun experience as a kid lol.

       

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I have some horrible allergies myself... Or maybe it's more like horrible hay fever? All I know is my nose is stuffy all the time and my eyes can get scratchy.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      @Takeo212 Still very callous of her. But ultimately, I hope she learned something.

      All allergies should be given serious consideration. I'm allergic to cigarette smoke, I cough as a response, and if I am eating or drinking when that happens, it leads to nothing good, and if I have prolonged exposure, I begin heaving and it has an effect on my cognitive functions, something the people I live with just tell me to 'quit bitching' about, like it's nothing. If it gets real bad, it makes my eyes itch to boot.

      Again, serious consideration. Your sis could learn from my on-paper parents' foolishness as that may one day very well be my end.

  8. Hrm. I'm not sure at what point I should consider my game playable for RPG Maker Central.

     

    I still have three levels to make, but they are also the levels that will take the most time to make. Should I put up the game for playtesting for the first four levels? Or wait until I finish the next two, so I just have the last one to update?

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I say at least send what you have so far to some people, see if there are any unnoticed kinks you can work out while you work on the rest.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Demo release? Absolutely! See if there's other things to look at before the final release.

    3. Zvart

      Zvart

      Well, you nerds convinced me. Just waitin' on the approval.

  9. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo Raven's stream will be live shortly with some LISA! Feel free to drop by!

  10. I wasn't aware up til a little bit ago that one could host mature projects here.
    I find this intriguing.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Not sure you can actually host them here, but you can make a thread about a your game event if it's 18+ if you mark it as such I think. :3

       

      ...Honestly I sort of half want to make my game a naughty one too, but it's a bit too complicated to fit into the game in any meaningful way so I think I will settle with a bit risque for now. At least my game lets you run around naked if you want. That said, I put an item in that changes the player to a kinda bunny person the other day and ran around naked for a bit and thought about how it would be pretty cool in an adult game. The scenarios I could think of! Well maybe someday. I am definitely still gonna let players run around naked and have transformation items though. I am using this script so I can do a lot of cool stuff with changing how the character looks. Though I am using mostly the VX Ace generator parts for graphics, which arn't the best (I know you don't like um much), but it will do.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      The VXA generator graphics are fine, just not paired with the VX Ace RTP faces, if that makes sense.
      In truth, my preference is the XP height for character sprites, and angled faces, but that's not a necessity, just a preference. Being able to work with the MV faces allows one to create face graphics in the same style as the VX Ace RTP when H-Flipped. But ultimately, you do you.
      I'll eventually have an in-depth look at that script, and see if I can customize it to suit my needs.
      Having a thread is the same as hosting, it's really just a gateway is all. That's what I meant.

       

      Most of my game ideas have story plots/character traits that only the tween-equivalent+ spectrum would understand at minimum, and mature themes are a thing because like me, I don't dumb down my creative works, but I do try to explain things simply if possible.
      Of course, things like behind closed doors stuffs is something I'd only put in a game if it was relevant to the story plot/character trait, and yes, I'd not just stuff it in and hope no one notices unlike some developers at the TripleA level. (Seriously, why, EA, Ubisoft, among others many...)

  11. The guy who rips, 

    Fame won't grip. 

  12. It's like.

    I know WHAT'S wrong.

    But I have no idea HOW its wrong.

      Ruby can be a cruel mistress at times, and definitely spoiled rotten to boot, throwing tantrums at the slightest inconsistency, even if you see no inconsistencies at all, lol

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hey, Ruby is a nice sensible girl! She tries her best, she really does! At least she tries to tell you when she doesn't understand what to do. She isn't just throwing tantrums, she is trying to help! Ever try programing in assembly? If you did you would be grateful for Ruby trying at all and not just willfully barging on ahead. :3

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Assembly language is a bulldozer. lol
      When Ruby is not making a fuss over something that doesn't make sense, she does things wonderfully whilst toggling her shoe on her toes with her legs crossed...

  13. One of these days, I *REALLY* have to make a blog for our games' studio. It gets a bit tiring making blogs for each and every game, hahaha...

  14. I now have a full-body fever on top of my sprained elbow.
    This is absolute garbage! I'm sick of the random nonsense.
    (Yes, I HATE being sick)

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Oh dear... Just try and take care of yourself okay?

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      That's what I've been doing, short of anything out of my budget...
      (like going to the doctor since I don't have a plan and would pay out of my ass for it)

      Update:
      Fever gone, sprain remains, less painful but still a lack of full range motion.

  15. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo Raven's stream will be live shortly with the Interactive Text Adventure! Feel free to drop by!

  16. My brother got a job not so long ago and the first thing he aims for is a new PC, because his current one is 'meh'. :P

    That would require waiting months though, so I asked him if he'd like me to buy one for him, to which he agreed. I just ordered his PC right now; he'll eventually give me bits back at some point in the future.

    With that being said... I assume gaming together will get more intense. 🎉

      It has to! :D Thank you! :) 

    3. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Ah, hope it works out well for you both Riki.

      A gaming PC is on my wishlist, but we're saving up to buy a house so I'll have to live my gaming life through your brother now~

    4. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      It will, thank you, Takeo. :) 

      Oh buying a house yeah- it is way more challenging than it should be. I'd love to have a house with a nice peaceful garden, but I'd have to win in a lottery first. :P Well, I hope everything goes well for you, good luck! :) 

  17. Solve one problem and another shows up.

     

    UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH

      Well, what don't you like about it exactly? I am curious. I haven't really worked with Javascript that much, but it seems mostly okay to me. I wouldn't call it my preferred language, but is it really all that bad? I think the biggest problem I see with Javascript is just that using a prototype-based object system is really unusual and I think not many people really understand how it works, and you can do all sorts of odd things that don't quite make sense in most computer languages. Like functions being objects you can set to a variable like any other object.

       

      Then again, I am a computer science nerd, so I probably pick up on the reasons for a lot of the details that most people find nonsensical and overly complex anyway.

    3. Dark Influence

      Dark Influence

      I'm honestly not sure what my issue with Javascript is, it's just something that I always end up having to deal with whenever I try to work with that language, which is what makes me want to avoid it.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, I getcha. We all have things like that don't we?

  18. vkzLRN5.jpgSo... I recently bought a Poweline Adapter kit. Whenever it's Remote Desktop or uploading files, it's pretty impressive.

  19. I sprained my elbow the other night, and right now, it hurts like HELL. It has limited what I can do with my DOMINANT hand, moving a mouse around hurts at times, I can't even lift a bloody SPOON to my mouth to eat my breakfast. It wouldn't be so bad (but still be garbage) if it were my left hand...
    Safe to say, this halts gamedev to a standstill; I can't write, barely can type...

     

    Why does this stupid nonsense happen to me, dammit!?

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      *kisses the elbow to make it better*

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Oh, @Kayzee, at least it helps that you're cute.

  20. still alive just working my third project having hard time making characters and the story this only third project

    also i got a idea for a small horror game only problem is making horror image, I got enough strange dreams by my anxiety now get nightmare image don't want have same thing at Scott Cawthon but all can say now.

     

    made short version of Chronicles 2 but remove some feature.
     

  21. I just made my own encyclopedia script, cause I wasn't happy with the one I was fiddling with. I called it 'Pedia! :3 Yes including the ! at the end and the ' at the start. It's cute, don't judge me!

     

    Er anyway,  it requires some other scripts, so I am not sure if I will release it on it's own. Aaaand it's not nearly done yet anyway. Still I am happy with cute widdle 'Pedia! ... Maybe I should make it a character in my game, like a talking book or a literal exposition fairy that follows you around. :P

      True, though I've yet to see the ramifications for all the cheating garbage I've been through.
      Anyway, how's that lunar calendar coming along?

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Haven't really been working on it. Been doing other stuff instead.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, I do want to see how both this and your lunar calendar turn out.
      Keep on rockin' it, love.

    😐

    1. Chaosian

      Chaosian

      Probably an unfortunately common occurrence, not just here.

    2. Zvart

      Zvart

      I edited my original post with a link to the solution I found. Maybe my new phrasing will help someone from doing it again.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Definitely not an isolated thing; I've been there on several occasions.

  23. Was flipping through scary stories for inspiration and by sheer coincidence, I stumble upon the real life version of the Kaminaga Shrine.

     

    Spooky! (ΟΔΟ;)

  24. https://www.twitch.tv/ravenbindigo Raven's Stream wil lbe live shortly with some Terraria PVP, a guest stream, and then Voter's Choice! Feel free to drop by!

  25. After lots of consideration, I probably won't include Mefis's human form in game (lack of sprites and no immediate need for it).

     

    But for those of you curious, the closest I can get to it is this V

  26. Phew, I just spend waaaay to much time playing around with seeing if I could calculate dates for a lunisolar calendar system... something like this one.

     

     

    #A known full moon neer a winter solstice to count from.
    moontime = Time.gm(1969,"dec",23,17,36,0) 
    
    nowtime = Time.now
    
    diftime = nowtime-moontime
    
    #Numbers are based on the Metonic cycle: 6940 days being aprox. 19 solar years and 235 lunar months.
    puts days = (diftime / 86400.0)
    puts mooncycleday = days % 6940
    puts mooncyclemonth = (days / 29.530587981) % 235
    puts mooncycleyear = mooncycleday % 19
    
    #Count out the months since the start of the cycle
    #7 out of 19 years have a 13th month.
    moonmonth = mooncyclemonth.floor
    for i in 0..(mooncycleyear.floor + 1)
      my = [2, 5, 7, 10, 13, 16, 18].include?(i) ? 13 : 12
      moonmonth -= my if moonmonth > my
    end
    puts moonmonth
    
    #Count out the days since the start of the cycle
    #Alternates between 29 and 30 day months (a real lunar month is about 29.530587981 days)
    moonday = mooncycleday.floor
    for i in 0..(mooncyclemonth.floor + 1)
      dm = i.even? ? 29 : 30
      moonday -= dm if moonday > dm
    end
    puts moonday

    Am I doing it right?

     

     

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I have no idea, but it certainly looks fascinating.

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I am pretty sure I am doing it wrong, cause sometimes I get bad results. I think I will have to count by day.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, if you do manage to get it working, I'd love to see it.

       

  27. Honestly, it's like, I get started on a Trackmania United/Forever race project, and all the sudden, I come to a stopping point and/or finish, and five, six hours have passed.

    Damn! So much for RM...lol
