  1. Yesterday
  2. To all you people on here who've been saying I'm really a squirrel bestowed with the gift of human intellect inside of a remarkably attractive man-robot, operating him with controls, that is false, it's fake news, it's violent and it hurts my feelings. I'm a kitty cat bestowed with the gift of human intellect inside of a remarkably attractive man-robot, operating him with controls.

  3. Last week
  4. Going forward, it'll be much easier to contact me via Discord or Steam; web browser is garbage to startup anymore and I will never have the means to upgrade my lackluster hardware...

    Unless you wanna help out...

      I use browser extensions; if Pale Moon supports those, then it'd be worth a shot, @UncannyBoots.

      @Kayzee I remember using Apple II and early Macs. Fondest memories of those are with Kid Pix, lolz

      It does have it's own list of extensions and can use older firefox extensions due to it being a fork of an older firefox (but now it is quite different from firefox).

      Any support for Chrome extensions?

  5. Made some progress in the actual level, as well as added some details here and there (tiles with plants and stuff in teh grass)

      I know the feeling...

  6. It finally happened. My RPG horror game, Kamikakushi, has been recognized by a big name: Tara A. Devlin, the author behind the horror anthology series Kowabana. I'm not worthy, AAAAAAAA....😳

     

    I know I sound like a broken record, but still... WOW.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Neato! It seemed like you worked hard on making Kamikakushi the best game it could be, so I am glad it got recognized! Some times hard work pays off after all I guess. :3

       

      I personally never heard of Tara A. Devlin myself, but I am pretty sure you never heard of most of the people I would be most excited to be recognized by either. :3

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Nice! Well done, mon ami.

  7. Yay, I made a sprite... of a sprite!

    image.png

    You see, sprites are fairy-like nature spirits. This one is a cute nature spirit of autumn!

     

    Edit: Better side animation, no ember things.

  8. Does anyone know of a good writer or editor? I need to clean up my dialogue in my game.

      sorry I meant grammar check

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah, I can do that.

    4. UncannyBoots

      UncannyBoots

      How long is the script? I can also take a look at it and fix any grammar mistakes if it's not like 50000 words lol

  9. I think I'm gonna have to take a deepdive into my database one of these days and come up with better items/weapons/armor. I feel like I don't have enough and a lot of them don't quite fit the fairyland theme I am going for.

     

    I have added some weapons that do fit the theme, but the problem is they are basically all replicas of unique legendary weapons like Caladbolg or Gáe Bulg. I probobly need to come up with more generic weapons.

     

    Also still kinda wanna turn potions into mushrooms or something and turn scrolls into something else (not sure what, maybe some kinda of tarot card).

      Let me see...
      Skill Card
      Primary
      Offhand
      Clothing x7
      Enhancer x3
      Accessory x4
      Relic x3
      That's...20 altogether, lolz

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      That's probobly too much for the player to really handle all at once... do you have that divided up into different menus? You could have a menu just for equipping weapons, one for clothing, and one for everything else. That would make te equip scene less bloated I think...

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I do not (I don't know how to do that either).
      Of course, seven clothing slots for various layers of clothing (because nude otherwise lolz)

  10. Earlier
  11. just in case I give up tryna figure it out: vx ace users what are some simpler alternatives to theo's battle system you guys recommend? thanks!!

    1. Holder

      Holder

      I've got a list of Animated battle scripts in my topic for Animated Battler resources.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I have the simple side view battle system; not using it for my current project but it is a good one.

    3. kurin

      kurin

      @Holder just gonna bookmark every single script you linked in that thread because this is a HUGE savior

  12. just found out if I wanna make a cool opening movie for my game i gotta draw it myself, animate it myself and then render it so it fits the tiny af vx ace resolution

     

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      How else are you supposed to do it? I suppose you could try to commission one but good animators don't grow on trees ya know.


      Also: VX Ace's video player is kind of terrible. I don't think you can even skip videos.

       

       

       

    2. kurin

      kurin

      @Kayzee I'm mocking my own laziness lmao, still gonna try to do it, I'm too broke to commission somebody

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Honestly you could probably do something cool enough with still images or in-game graphics without needing to actually fully animate anything.

  13. One day you dream of making dark fantasy games, and then the next day you're negotiating a price for building a chess-based battle-puzzle plugin. The day after that you wake up and Skynet has taken over, and robots are running around shooting tf out of everyone. Fast forward one week, and you're on your way back to 1984 to do it with your commander's mom. Life is funny like that.

      I had to look SHODAN up....I never played system shock, but they really had to decide they wanted to use Shodan and then came up with an acronym for it?? Still, I really liked the first Bio Shock, maybe I'd like System Shock. And yeah, GLaDOS wouldn't, but Wheatley might!

       

      Honestly I haven't played very much of Bio Shock but it seemed like a watered down version of System Shock gameplay wise to me. But then again, the System Shock games are old and clunky. Someone is making a remake of the first game though... It looks pretty good! Also Wheatley would just end up blowing everything up.

      Well, gotta respect HAL for being the og evil AI at least... And for trashing Bill Gates in a rap battle.

    4. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      System Shock looks and sounds cool, I hope it's darker than the first Bio Shock. That's the only think I didn't like in Bio Shock, it came very close to being very dark, but fell short in some ways

  14. :thonkang:

    Well, this is odd; apparently, one cannot display icons using variables.
    I mean to do so like this:
    \i[$game_variables[#]]

    Like, the point of this is to use the variable's current value to point to the icon index. I mean, sure, I think one could use the following:
    \i[\v[#]], but I'm not sure if that would work outside of message boxes and such.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Wow,  \i[\v[#]] actually works! I didn't think it would at first glance, but it totally does! It should work for any text that is drawn with draw_text_ex, which I think by default is message boxes, item descriptions/help windows, choice lists, scrolling text, the battle log... and I think that's it? Most menus or other windows only use draw_text which doesn't support control codes at all, but most of them manually draw icons or other things anyway.

       

      Here is a fun thing you can do with message control codes: You can technically set a variable to a string using script calls or the set variable script operand. This makes the \v[#] command a LOT more useful if you ask me.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah, let us just say that this is outdated; my topic in Programming is the actual thing to be looking at. Since you have my project, you have both scripts at hand.

      I mean...I'm not going to skip over an obstacle because it'll be there no matter what until the obstacle is eliminated, so if this stalls my demo release, then BITCH MODE ACTIVATED.

  15. I am so proud of myself! My map of my game's first castle is my best castle ever so far!

  16. You know, I think I have been in a weird grumpy mood lately for some reason and am probobly starting too many arguments.

     

    So... Sorry everyone! I don't mind having an argument or two but I think I may have gotten a bit out of hand.

  17. Oh these folks upstairs are trying to get decked. Been banging around for SIX hours straight. Been here 10+ years, loudest neighbors ever. And they SMELL. I will never understand some people's lack of awareness, cleanliness and overall consideration for others.

      Not knowing what they are talking about doesn't stop most people from forming opinions with conviction anyway though, so I don't see why it should stop me! :P

       

      You 'aren't a huge fan of snitching'? Okay, first of all, I don't think it's really 'snitching' if you are directly involved. But if you really think that's a good enough reason for dealing with all these sleepless nights, okay then. You are the one who has to deal with it after all not me. Point is, you do have options. You may have reasons for finding them distasteful or otherwise deciding not to do them, but they are there.

       

      Yeah it's healthy to express your anger. It's okay to vent every once and a while. But as much as anger is dangerous, anger is also a tool. It's useful. If you just vent all of it all the time you won't have any left for when you should be angry. At the same time, yeah keeping it always bottled up and never expressing it usually never turns out well.

       

      Anyway, don't you think it's possible that some one with anxiety problems might, maybe without intending to even, fall into a pattern of using their anxiety as sort of a shield to protect them from the consequences of their actions? Do you think it's particularly healthy to hide from confrontation and continue a pattern of behavior that is negatively effecting others?

       

      All that said I think I have been in a weird grumpy mood lately to be honest, so maybe it's better to ignore my shitty advice right now.

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      Lol what?? Of course I'm gonna ignore the advice! Did you think you were being convincing?

      It's ok lol, yeah honestly I really hate the feeling of telling on someone.

      And I totally get in moods sometimes, but they pass for their own reasons whenever they're ready.

       

      Anyway this is all got a little out of proportion. I'd rather say I feel like decking a guy than actually deck him, because when later when I'm less annoyed and they're less noisy, I don't want to hit him lol, so I do like to exercise the anger.

       

      In a weird way, it was super fun arguing with you. In a weird way. Weirdo 😄

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      It doesn't sound like you ignored it. It sounds like you took it to heart, really looked at what I was saying, and completely rejected it. And really that in of it's self is an unexpected kindness! Thank you for taking me seriously enough to completely shoot me down! I mean it! :3

       

      Hehe, you flatter me. <3 I am to be as weird as I can. :P

       

       

       

       

  18. I beat the remake of Link's Awakening today... I almost feel bad about doing it given what happened during the ending, but that kind of thing happens. Heck It happens nearly every time I wake up! But it's just as the Wing Fish says. As long as you remember...

     

    And you better believe I did it with a 0 death save game for the short post credits scene! It's not as hard as it sounds, just load if you die. It's worth it!

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I remember the first time I beat Link's Awakening.

      I actually didn't get the ending at all, but I was good enough that I didn't die at any point (not that I was paying attention to such since most of the time spent was slashing grass for rupees and heart bits lol).

  19. I just remembered I need to purchase a title screen for my game...

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Ooooor you could just... ya know... make one? I know art can be hard, but all you really need for a half decent title screen is a decent free font, maybe some free generic background clipart, and GIMP. Or maybe Inkscape and GIMP. I mean, I am pretty hopeless at most art but I think I made a decent title screen for my game all on my own.

       

      ...Though it helps that I seem to have gotten good at scripting cool little visual flares and animations. My tittle screen may mostly be text and simple designs, but a with a bit of scripting an clever use of multiple graphics layers I think it turned out pretty good! Though the only thing I have online that shows it off is this pretty low quality video I made (about 20 seconds in), and I don't show it off for very long.

       

      Mind you a real experienced artist could still probobly do a better job then you or I, but I think you could do a lot more then you think with free tools/resources if you try.

    2. FranklinX

      I'm not great at programs like Gimp and Inkscape. I use to make thumbnails for my YouTube channel, and they weren't that good. 

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Fair enough, though I can hardly be said to be an expert myself. I just fiddle around until I get something I like mostly. I am still discovering little tricks that I can use even though I have been messing around with them for years.

  20. Lol I actually remember you from years ago. I'm over on RPGMakerWeb mostly, I stopped RPG Maker for a while and couldn't remember which site I had belonged to. But I remember you and your love of using events. 

    I searched for you on the other forum, but couldn't find you. Partially because I searched 'Vector' instead of 'Vectra', and partially because I was looking on the wrong forum   XD

      Why no kitties?

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Mostly because I tend to be messy and lazy. I love kitties, but sometimes I can barely take care of myself let alone a cat! I have had a cat before, but last time I had one I don't think I cleaned the litter quite often enough and it would poop everywhere! Though it was an old cat, so it might have just been pooping everywhere anyway. Ether way, after she passed away (I had nothing to do with that, she was really really old) I have sorta been holding off getting another.

    4. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      awww ya gotta clean up the poops! They hate pooping elsewhere, they'll generally only do it outside of the litterbox if they don't like the state of it. 

      Don't hold off, get another one, and empty that litterbox!!!

      My kitties say hi, which I will now transcribe:

      Biggs: "Brrrrrroooowwwwww!"

      Belle:  "Rrrreeeehhhhhhhhh!"

      Tessa: Myeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

      (Tessa can hold her meows for long periods of time lol)

    2. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      Gotta think up some way to keep them. Like maybe get them trapped in an MLM? And instead of friends and family, they try to sell to new members? Or we could trap them in some some sort of net, or bear traps? Lemme talk to my bear trap guy

  23. Netflix's new series based on Bram Stoker's Dracula starts off a little slow, but it is so good.

  24. Double dammit.
    Two maybe three days ago, I had finished off the last few bites of someone else's late night snack (something I usually do), only to find out after the fact that they were unwell at the time, and now I've got it; started feeling the symptoms about seven hours ago, and yeah, this is going to suck. I had to cancel one appointment (gonna be a nightmare to reschedule just because of the specialist having a lot of days off in the coming months ahead), and if it gets very bad, might have to cancel the other one more than a week from now. Sweet Mercy.

      That One NPC

      Protecting yourself from the ignorance and negligence of others is paramount. It's not often you'll find individuals who will be forthright with you out of the gate and say, "Head's up, I'm sick as a dog," when sharing things. Usually when someone has a terminal flu, you can kinda guess and avoid exposure, but sometimes they are still in that sore throat, congested sinuses stage, and there's really no way to know, unless they have the decency to let you know.

       

      I don't eat or drink anything after anyone. Just be thankful it was a common bug, and not herpes type 1. 😅

      I've already used them, and since it's DLC asset packs, getting the refund would be much harder to justify. I was gifted two Keys for VX Ace, and though I did use one of them, the other expired.

      Anyway, maybe the interest isn't actually there. I dunno. If you're on the RMC Discord, maybe you could ask people there.
