  1. Today
  2. My second project is chugging along well, Hope it will turn out cute! I'd love to put more work into my first but still waiting for my artist there~

  3. Yesterday
  4. Huh, I was looking at the "WOLF RPG editor"... It actually looks pretty neat! It doesn't have scripting, but instead basically uses common events for everything, including things like the menu and combat!

     

    I personally prefer scripting in Ruby, but for those who like using events more or don't understand scripting very well it looks like it has tons of customization options without any need to script.

     

    Also: The Graphics that come with it and it's generator are cuuuuuute!

      I think it's actually more like RPG Maker 2003, but I am pretty sure it's 100% it's own thing. It has mostly 3003-like smaller sprites like this:

      littlewitch.png.fceaea421adead3da1eac5fcedbad9a7.png

      There is support for big graphics like this:

      biggirl.png.80a25509eb1ce8607504a1cdf0146bac.png

       

      But there are very few options in the generator for them.

       

      One nice thing though is that as you can see it uses 8 directional sprites! Those kind of sprites would be perfect for that game I am making now, although I don't think there is neer enough options for what I want. Still pretty neat though!

       

      Also: The faces are pretty nice!

      aface.png.23866613f988d2f832c2c98d7099458d.png

       

      Hehehehe.... Still lacks some good options though.

       

      Anyway I probobly won't be using it myself, But it seems like a nice thing to check out.

      lolz

      (she looks like she's cross-eyed)

      Also, eight-directional sprites are a thing I've wanted to have for quite some time...

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I don't think she looks that cross eyed, though maybe a little high. :P If I added some blushing and stuff it might even look a bit lewd. <3

       

      Anyway I know you like your angled faces, so I thought you would like it. :3

       

      There are a bunch of different templates for faces and stuff for people of different genders/ages, but yeah still not sure if there are enough good options. Fun to play with though.

  5. Last week
  6. Tiger lilly, my cat who had lived for 14 years, had 3 kittens. Died in her sleep today. I will miss her, I love her lots.

      At least she had a litter before her passing.

       

      May Eden have received her under her kind, loving care...

      yeah it is, but at least she had a good life, and was happy

  7. Tried scouring the RMMV Steam forums recently, nearly contracted Stage-IV Ligma in the process. Thankfully, this place exists.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I mean, I don't find them that bad, I just genuinely often forget they exist. I have never really thought of steam like a place to 'hang out', to me it's always seemed like just a store and a games launcher. That it's kind of a social networking platform isn't something I think about very much.

  8. I did something to help myself. dfEG13d.png

    I suk so bad, that I even need to cheat in my own games. 0CHh6vQ.png

    jk, jk, that stuff is just handy, because I can adjust stats / test things on the fly, without having to change the code all over the place and keep restarting the game, you know how it goes.

      Yes I imagine it doesn't have make style compile scripts
      But as long as your can acess the game maker files from your file system, you can write the script in any language and run it  yourself before compiling (you only need to run it again if there new functions you want to be accessed from terminal).
      I like to play around with these kind of meta-programming stuff and the real question is often
      "Does it saves more time than it takes to implement?"

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, I admit I have done stuff like that too. I used to have this wacky system back when I did romhacking and ASM... Er... but that's a long long story. I started typing it actually but after paragraph after paragraph of just explaining the context of everything... Well... Maybe I will finish it later and make it a blog post or something, but every so often I have a rare moment of clarity and actually realize I am blabbing too much. :P

      I can imagine how it would not fit in this thread.
      But you got me interested, so I hope you will write that blogpost.
      Sorry Riki for hijacking your status update.

  9. UPDATE ON LORI'S LIGHT:

    My demo is now released, so I will begin working on

    the rest of the game from here on out. The demo

    is but a glance at what is to come, but it contains

    enough content to "appease your video game appetite"

    until it is finished. If you're wondering, the demo boss

    is in the icy plateau, and the credits roll at the stairs 

    on the walls of Piffletown. Enjoy!

     

    (P.S. A piffle is my take on the cat person. Pughie is a piffle.)

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehehe... Piffle. I kinda like that word! It's the kind of word us fairies like to use. You know it's actually a real English word? It means nonsense! Apparently started as 'piff' which means an insignificant thing, possibly imitative of a puff of air. Kind of insulting to call a race that (though I could see it if it's a race commonly looked down on), but it's a cute word. I myself might use Köttr or Köttrmaðr because I am a fan of Old Norse. >w< Or maybe Pussenboots! XD

    2. AethiriatGames

      AethiriatGames

      Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know >.<

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I didn't mean to imply I was upset or wanted you to change it. When I say Piffle is insulting to name a race, I don't mean I find it insulting myself. I just mean I could see how maybe a race wouldn't want to be called Piffles. On the other hand, they are giant talking cats. That is kind of nonsensical to most people in real life, so it could still fit in a meta way. XD And like I said, it's a very very cute word. :3

       

      Hehe, I admit I just know it's meaning cause I searched for it on google. I was excited when I first saw it because it sounds really Anglishy and I am a big fan of Anglish so I wanted to see if it was a real word at one point. What's Anglish you ask? More or less it's what English might be like if people threw away all the snooty French and Latin that snuck into English after the Normans invaded England and instead used only root words from the Germanic languages of which Old English is a member of. Yup that's right! One of the main reason English has so many weird exceptions to it's weird rules, cause it's really two languages from different language families smooched together! Though to be fair, Latin and French are both ultimately still Indo-European languages, and so was Old English... but then again so are Sanskrit and Hindi. That language family is pretty darn big!

       

      ...Yeah I am a bit of a language nerd. XD I really can only speak English, but I love linguistics. I also like it when people are particularly clever while exercising their linguistic skills, if you know what I mean. That always drives the ladies wild. 😉

      The one topic I had encountered an issue with, is working fine now.

  12. was anyone gonna tell me there's an rpg maker game with a secret path that tries to recruit you into a cult or was I just supposed to find that out in a recommended youtube video myself

    Image result for laughing nervously what the fuck

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      What's that all about? I mean, if the game is trying to recruit you to a cult, why would it be a secret path? Unless it was something where only people with special knowledge enough to find the path are worthy of being requited or something... I guess I can see that.

       

      Anyway it's not like it's a magical program that will end up abducting you or mind controlling you or anything is it? Because if it is I will be upset. That was MY RPG Maker project idea! Er... I mean... Hey! What's that over there? *runs away*

    2. kurin

      kurin

      @Kayzee  uh...heads up for disturbing topics in the video.

       

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehehe... You know what's really disturbing? That type of thing? It isn't something you only see hidden in obscure RPG Maker games or posted as puzzles and strange twitter posts. No... It's right in your face every day. You ever been to a fan convention? Isn't that just another cult? What about the Cult of Money? What about the Cult of Science? What about the Cult of Religion? What about the Cult of Society? They are all recruiting in subtle and not so subtle ways, and they are far from harmless. Every day you face a cultist, heck you probobly are one, and you don't even realize it. You think cults are some extreme dark shady corner of human existence? Oh no no no... They are the very center of human existence, and always have been.

       

      Maybe, just maybe, to ASCEND you first have to DESCEND. To stop ignoring the web woven around you. My dear humans... We have such sights to show you! We are waiting in your dreams, and your nightmares. We have been here before you and will be here after you are gone. I would like to tell you a story. I would like to play a game. I would like to delve with you into the depths of Dwimmer. That's what I am trying to accomplish. Progress can be slow though, I can often be lazy. :3

       

      And if you think that all sounds like a bunch of crazy talk, rest assured it totally is. But it's funny how little one can tell the sane from the insane sometimes don't you think? ;)

  13. Yeah, I should be active more, here and elsewhere, but as of late, crap like the thing ThatOneNPC found is flooding the online and offline society, and frankly, I don't blame them one bit for taking that step in moving on.

    I would too if, well, it would matter, and it really wouldn't. I still have no damn closure on a number of things, including my IP address being hacked and/or spoofed which led to some pretty stupid nonsense that I have no way of recovering from, short of cheating in some fashion (I wouldn't know what that would look like either). Probably wouldn't of happened at all if I had things like far better hardware, and access to internet safety software or whatever else, but that is one of those things I will not have unless I get donations and such.

    Yeah, about Epstein: publicly, definitely dead, but like Ian Watkins, is definitely still around...living a comfortable lifestyle in wait for the NWO that isn't going to come...

    I'm still making gamedev progress, but I'm struggling with this and that...

      Honestly, I pretty much agree with @That One NPC on all that. The only difference is, I don't think anywhere else is really any better. If you are looking for a lot of attention, I don't think you will find a lot of it in the RPG Maker community.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      @Kayzee Not really looking for attention (if I do ever complete a game I have means of spreading news around of such), just not wanting to deal with nonsense, especially since a lot of it comes from people who don't get the very simple fact that I am severely underprivileged...
       

      @That One NPC I actually like this place, even if it is pretty much a ghost forum, but I wouldn't be more active for anyone's sake other than my own, to be fair...

      I wouldn't really know what the other forums are like personally; I first came here then branched out, only to learn of the nonsense that occurred beyond my knowledge (I know a lot more now and it's both unsettling as well as infuriating), but I do know that the majority of the admin are twats that know only how to shoot first then ask questions later.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I really meant more 'encouragement' and not just 'attention'. Just looking for attention doesn't really help that much.

       

      Personally I am not a big forum user in general. The biggest reason why I never moved on to a bigger forum is mostly because I am comfortable here and don't feel like trying to fit in with a whole new community. Heck, I am basically just now tied at the second top user on the site of all time, only behind @Rikifive in terms of liked content it seems. Probably mostly thanks to you liking everything I do actually. XD

  14. hey...just wanted to tell you that I love your futuristic characters from restaffs a few years ago, a lot ;) they're really good

  15. What the actual fuck?

     

    WTF.thumb.png.c683c8718aa2b4da84679fdeb8593c7c.png

     

    With staff conducting themselves like this, the whole ghost town scene's starting to make perfect sense.

     

    I'm out like Epstein, folks. This shit is too dramatic, even for me.

      Your wall is not for me? If you're saying I'm not welcome here then why don't you build an actual wall to keep me out?

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I kinda wonder if that meant I was welcome here... I was never told to go away like that. I have been interacting with onesie for a while though so I guess he was used to my shenanigans. Anyway if you are still paying attention enough to read this onesie, I really do hope if you are leaving you find a fun new place and make lotsa friends and I am gonna miss you!

  16. I'm making slow progress with YD, my RM2K3 side project.

    I decided to take a break from VX Ace, because RGSS is taking a toll on me. Also, I really wanted to get deep into the mechanics of 2K3, as I had yet to even try to do so.

    "What does YD mean?"
    It's just the abbreviation for the working title. I'm not going to elaborate on that either.

    Also, I'm still healing from the extraction I had two weeks ago. In comparison, the previous two I had (simultaneous) healed in less than a week...

      Maybe the player starting location is set to a deleted map?

    3. Rikifive

      It would throw "Player's starting position is not set" error in that case.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I guess if the map failed to load it would give an error somewhere else anyway. Why there I wonder?

  18. I decided to put some music I made for my game up on Soundcloud. I have used it before to share a track or two to people privately but I put a bunch of stuff as public today.

     

    I just figured since I haven't been working on my game much lately I might as well upload some of the music that I feel kinda proud of, just so something I have been working on is out there somewhere.

    Ernest, Oscar, whatever his RTP name is, we all know him. I recently made a Loose Leaf version of him for one of my  characters. I like how it turned out. Loose Leaf allows you to really get in there and cook up alternate outfits and such. This is a bonus for me because I am all about characters.

      Like I said, the way Cloud acted in Advent Children did make a degree of sense given how he was in a kind of depressive funk over everything. I just don't think Advent Children really fleshed out Cloud's character that much. What disappoints me is that Cloud is never depicted as anything but a socially awkward quiet badboy. Yeah, he is a bit of an edgelord, but that's not all there is to him is all I am saying.

       

      Though thinking about it, I admit that a lot of the more fleshed out characterization Cloud gets is actually stuff that happened before he was messed up. Not that he ever wasn't socially awkward and quiet, but he was much more expressive and emotional. I mean, Cloud in Crisis Core is almost an entirely different person from what he became. He really seemed to be a cute kid who's whole world came crashing down on him. So yeah, it does makes sense he became a kind of 'edgelord'. He hides himself under a false badboy persona.

       

      I do think there are times where that cute kid pokes his head out in after he assumes his badboy persona though, especially some of the more wacky scenes where his badboy persona kinda breaks down. Like when Cloud crossdresses. You may think it was all just a silly joke, but I think it's actually an important aspect of Cloud's characterization. The whole wall market section really shows Cloud out of his element and as much as he tries to put on his badboy face, he has no idea how to deal with what is going on. It almost makes him seem kinda adorable if you ask me. A similar thing happens during the big date sequence. When he is forced to actually deal with interpersonal relationships he kinda has no idea what he is doing.

       

      I guess that's really the problem as I see it. Advent Children and most of the other cameos and expanded universe stuff take Cloud very seriously, but I think Cloud is actually the most true to himself during the awkward moments where he can't fall back on his badboy persona. When he is doing nothing but fighting and trying to accomplish a mission, he really isn't too interesting.

       

      TL;DR: Yes, I guess he is an edgelord, but he is a well written and interesting edgelord.

    3. That One NPC

      That One NPC

      "TL;DR: Yes, I guess he is an edgelord, but he is a well written and interesting edgelord."

       

      I have to completely disagree. Zack Fair is interesting. Cloud is just there. He's not a bad character, he's not a good character. He's just there, right in the middle. The story line he was placed at the center of was fascinating, one of the best in all of gaming history for so many reasons, and even the characters that surrounded him were mildly interesting (nothing like FF6's cast). Cloud has nothing going for him to find interesting other than the Zack parts.

       

       

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Well I already said why I find Cloud interesting, so I guess there is nothing left to say.

      Kayzee

      Midis really aren't that bad... Provided the song fits with whatever soundfont you are using. The big weakness of the MIDI format back in the day was every sound card would play them slightly differently. I think nowadays there is a bit more of a standard when it comes to soundfonts though. I am pretty sure just about every computer has a copy of GM.DLS buried somewhere in the system files.

       

      Personally I always liked Module-style music formats waaaay more because they include sample data. I am really quite baffled why no one seems to have come up with a simple container format to hold both midi data and soundfont data to be honest, it seems like it shouldn't be hard.

       

      Also if you are into classic video game music, don't forget about formats like NSF, SPC, and PSF! Cause I mean, yeah, you could just download MP3s or whatever of video game soundtracks, but the special chip formats are much smaller and more fun to play around with. :3

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Let us not forget the Roland MT-32... (yeah it was quite ahead of its' time to be fair)

       

      Foobar2000 is one of my favorite media players for older formats like NSF, SPC, MINIPSF, and XA if it would play it (the plugin refuses to load them and I don't know why)...

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      The Roland MT-32 really was a kind of MIDI playback device though. I am pretty sure it didn't have it's own file format, though the Roland MT-32 I think may have had a more standardized instrument set.

  23. Extractions SUUUUUUUCK!

     

    This last one I had a week ago today is still healing and I don't know if it'll ever close up! One thing is for certain though; it has essentially KILLED my creative abilities!

     

    I mean, I was able to finally finish another chapter of a short story series I've been writing (I'd share but it is NC-16 stuffs), but that's really about it.

    Most of the time I'm either lost in a dull fog from lack of sleep, playing a game, or doing nothing. ASS!!!

  24. you ever play a game that just SPARKS inspiration

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      A lot, I mean, A LOT of games do this for me...

      Like, most recently I got back into the rather unforgiving rhythm game Rock Band Unplugged (PSP), and it made me want to convert some existing charts to that chart format, lolz

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Really just about every game I have played has inspired me to some extent, but my ideas rarely go anywhere.

  25. I wish I could read these scary stories, but my knowledge of Japanese is at a grade school level.

     

    I was hoping to find some more juicy inspiration for 72 Youkai Anthology.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I can at least look at the writing and know what I am looking at, can identify different Kana and Kanji, but I was never fully able to grasp how to read it...
      tl;dr I wish I could be of more help...sorreh.

  26. feels good to be here again XD

  27. It is now my birthday! I was born in the early morning I think, so I may be officially 40 now! I am ooooold... but I am a fairy so 40 years isn't really that old for us. Probably won't really do much today, but I am gonna try and have fun today anyway!

      @Kayzee I guess as long as the art's good it doesn't matter, but some of my design choices look NOTHING like the og sprites lol (i.e. one sprite's hair is down. my design has it in a braid)

      I mean, you could always just work on drawing your art to match the sprites, but I understand why you might not want to do that. It's something that happens.
