      Huh, was that movie actually good? I admit all I really knew about it was that it was some cgi live action thing, and those are usually bad. The trailers do look cutr then I expected though.

      It was one of the better (if not the best) video game movie I've seen. The plot is geared more towards kids, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. (I'm a kid at heart).

       

      I personally enjoyed all the minute details, such as the cameo of Red and Candela and the Dialga, Palkia and Arceus statue in one character's office.

  3. I got Dark Souls for my switch because I never got around to playing it before.

     

    Honestly it's kind of silly how unforgiving it can be. I mean, I get you wanna be hard game, but do you really have to let me dive right off into a pit if I am slightly at the wrong angle?

     

    You know in so called 'real life' people usually instinctively stop themselves from walking over edges. Just walking over one without thinking is something that mostly only happens in video games.

      Ya know Kilo, they say to try tongue but hole to become grossly incandescent in that game

      Tee-hee, i'm not that far into the game, but I hear there is a spot where people like to say that there is an amazing chest ahead later. :3

  4. For years I've been thinking Megan Markle is Brittany Snow grown up with a tan.

      Don't even know who those two people are! :3

  5. Earlier
  6. Yes, people. I'm aware Kamikakushi sucks. We can't all defend our first piece of creative writing/gaming. (Even though, technically it's not my first game)
     
    Besides, the game is loosely based off an actual horror story out there. One I didn't write. I am planning on cranking out an update that fixes all the errors and revises the dialogue, so I beg of you:
     
    Please. Stop. Telling me. That I suck. Or you won't get anymore games from me.

      Well I thought it was pretty neat! Besides you just know that no matter what you do there is bound to be at least one person who dosn't like it for whatever reason, often times not even because the work is bad but just because it's not to their taste. And a lot of people can't tell the difference between those two things unfortunately.

       

      And anyway, a lot of gods or other such supernatural beings can sort of come across as a bit chuunibyou-like, especially the more villainous ones. It's just something that kinda comes with the territory. After all, when a being is near the top of the cosmic power curve throughout their whole existence, they have little incentive to actually 'grow as a person'. Sure, there are gods with great wisdom and/or compassion, but a great number of they are basically stuck in the mentality of spoiled middle schooler brats. Like Zeus for example. Or even worse that prick Yaltabaoth ('Child of the Void') / Saklas ('Fool') / Samael ('Blind God'). You know, that one god who tells everyone he is the only one. No that's not what he calls himself, but those names are faaaar more fitting.

       

      So anyway, yeah, don't feel too bad that some might say your overpowered evil god-like being acts a bit like a self-important middle schooler. That's just how overpowered evil god-like beings tend to act.

    3. TobiObito4ever

      TobiObito4ever

      Here's the kicker: Hisame's actually the *GOOD* guy. He lost his eye in a scuffle against the main villain of the story.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Oh I thought you were talking about the bad guy that chases you. Regardless my point still stands! Overpowered good god-like beings act that way all the time too! Really all god-like beings can, good or evil, overpowered or kinda weak. I mean even some of the cool ones tend to. Hehe, That reminds me of Maui in the movie Moana  which I saw for the first time not to long ago (on the plane to Singapore in fact). Maui basically acted like kind of a brat most of the time. He just has enough raw charisma and cheeky moxie to make it kind of endearing. That's kind of a thing with tricksters, even when they do bad things and act smug they are still such lovable goofballs! ❤️

       

      ... Okay as a fairy, I maaaay be a little biased on that point. But who cares! Tricksters are the bestest!

       

      Anyway, not saying the criticism was valid mind, I honestly would need to replay the game first before I could make any judgement about it since I kinda played through quickly last time. I am just saying the only difference between chuunibyou and some gods is that gods usually actually have powers, so I can see how characters could be thought of that way. It's actually rather tricky to write a god-like character who doesn't come across that way.

       

      Personally I would probobly have actually leaned into that interpretation more, made it sort of a plot point even. Cause yeah, on some level these powerful god-like beings might seem like they are acting in a completely ridiculous way. But on another level, they aren't human. Perhaps were never human. To them most humans act in completely ridiculous ways too. Really, I find everyone and everything is completely ridiculous on some level anyway. Which might be why I am not a huge horror fan outside of maybe surreal horror (where things being completely ridiculous is what makes them scary).

  7. Sweet Mercy...
    Today I realized just how much of a novice I am at this.
    For once, I thought I had figured out something completely on my own, only to find that I had a function completely wrong, and by sheer luck, it did something I thought it was intended to do. Now that I've found out otherwise, I am completely stuck once more, and that has led me to yet another point of frustration. Wow.

    @Kayzee, I really could use your aid...or really, someone to talk to...

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Kayzee to the rescue! :3

  8. So many ideas, but none fit yet... I've been reading a bunch of horror stories to try and inspire me.

     

    Protip: do NOT look up Korean urban legends. I consider myself an avid horror fan, but this gets a hard "NOPE" from me.

      According to homeless kids living in Miami around 1997, god disappeared, demons were invading, a demon named 'Bloody Mary' who had bleeding empty eye sockets and was feared even by Satan was stalking children, and their biggest ally was an angel called 'The Blue Lady', but the demons cursed her to be unable to help unless a kid happens to know her true name.

       

      Kids day the darnest things huh?

      Hehe, in any case Tobi, be careful. Those that delve too deep in the dark of Dwimmer can find many strange and terrific things, and sometimes those things will follow you when you leave. :3

  9. Starting a new project.
    The previous one just got to the point of overcomplicated to fix, especially since I know not what is in error.

    So, this new one is going to be less complex, I hope...
    (my super-charged creativity makes 'simple' impossible)

      That One NPC

      All of my projects outgrow my capacity as a developer, so I sympathize. And it is impossible for me to do simple as well. My last four projects started out as 'something simple just to complete a game' and ended up being shelfed.

    3. Vis_Mage

      Vis_Mage

      Oh, I know the feeling. I've pretty much rebuilt the systems in my project at least 4 times now. It always starts off fairly simple, but has a way of slowly but surely growing more and more complex and hard to keep track of. -_-

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I've already hit the point of frustration...
      Especially since I'm going to put myself through the torment until it either works or someone provides aid. Or, I break my computer out of sheer frustration and likely end up in an 8x10 cement and steel deathtrap.

      Yeah, gamedev and gaming helps to keep me from losing it, but Ruby is being a BITCH right now.

       

  10. Seems nobody cares on my meme game!

    1. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Sadly these forums aren't as active as they used to be, which is sad. Sorry about that. :c

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Also, it's a meme game. I'm pretty sure that's a big reason nobody cares right there. Not saying meme games are always bad, but they do have a niche audience.

       

      I know how you feel though. My RPG Maker project is a Mystery Dungeon-style roguelike, and I am pretty sure the people here who would be interested in that is pretty much me and maybe a few handful of others even if the forums were as active as they were at their peek.

  11. When i look for help ideas nobody cares!

    1. Knighterius

      Knighterius

      The creators struggle

  12. I am a fan of technology, education, and entrepreneurship. I’m also interested in reading and web development. Expert as a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator. Working as a freelance technician in FieldEngineer.

  13. South Central Kansas has some strong storms going on, like as I type this.

    Two of these storms have been tornadic, and both storms are likely headed in my general direction. I already hear rumbles of thunder in the distance. There is no tornado/fallout shelter within a hundred foot sprint short of any of the houses across the street (unlikely shelter), so if the worst comes to worst, this may very well be my last post because these apartment buildings won't withstand tornadic winds, and even if I survive, my equipment will likely be damaged or taken by the storm.

    I mean, if I do survive, it'll be a LONG F*CKING TIME before I have internet access let alone hardware of my own.
    That's what happens when you're on disability payments.

    So, anyway, it's been fun.

      Oh no! I hope you are okay! Don't give up! I am sure it will turn out alright, but I am still worried for you!

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      The storm came, lightning, thunder, some hail, rain; a weakened gust and hail storm due to changing atmospheric conditions. Still, I had been running the same Windows session (hibernation for when I wasn't on my computer) for several days so it was good to shut my computer down anyway. Made it easier to defrag my hard disk from a fresh boot.
      @Animebryan No, I do not. 

      @Kayzee Not a matter of giving up but being practical. I'd take my chances by staying put rather than trying to run for shelter over a long distance.

  15. I was feeling kinda sick yesterday for some reason, which is too bad because it was May Day... Feel lots better now though!

    1. PhoenixSylph

      PhoenixSylph

      Glad you are feeling a bit better!

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      It was kinda weird, no idea why I was sick. Might have caught a cold in Singapore.

  16. you ever find new scripts for rpg maker and go "YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Not as such no. I tend to go "Neato!" instead.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Not really. If I find a script that I can find use for, I definitely give a little cheer, sometimes I do get excited if it is something I was looking for though.

  17. Lately, been playing games a lot more than developing them. Unfortunately, I don't know how to get out of this gamedev snag I am in.

    I've also tinkered a bit with the TES Construction Set for Morrowind. It's pretty neat how one can just create ridiculously enchanted items for some really powerful results...lol

      Well, enjoy yourself. Don't let a moment you could be spending enjoying A/B/C/X/Y/Z go by without getting some joy out of it.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, sometimes I think some people put so much effort into trying to enjoy themselves they forget to enjoy themselves though. :P

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I believe that goes hand-in-hand with enjoying the moment.

      If you're not enjoying the moment, you most surely can't be enjoying anything else, lol

  18. Phew... Back from Singapore. Didn't have a camera, but I might be able to share some photos others took later. :3

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      People were very friendly to be sure! I had some trouble understanding some of  them though, hope I didn't annoy people!

  19. Hi everyone! Since I'm new i think that the better way to let you know me a bit is with my project! I'll share it soon!

    1. Knighterius

      Literally just saw someone from the RmWeb with this username. If you're the same dude then hello! and if not, hello!

      It's me XD I'm just trying to share it as much as possible. I hope it goes well.

  20. Since it's Lesbian Visibility Day, let me get this out of the way:

     

    I'm a lesbian game developer with my lovely girlfriend. After helping each other with our projects, we formed ObakeNeko Works, an indie doujin circle of like-minded yuri and game-lovers. I couldn't have asked for a better girl by my side. Thank you all for supporting us this far. 👭

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Anytime, love.

      May the Divines guide you...

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yay for yuri I say! And yuri games too!

  21. Finally got some progress done on Kamikakushi 2.0. (Thanks to my GF for helping me fight through depression)

     

    So... What did I change?

    -Revised dialogue

    - Ramped difficulty for the chase scenes/music box puzzle

    - temporarily removed the doll puzzle (blame the depression)

    - added some flashbacks that further explain Hisame and Shin's backstory

    - replaced face graphics and sprites for Ueno and Yamazawa.

    - replaced the sprite for short-haired Yasu

    - added a book in the Omake Room that helps explain some mythos that wasn't clear.

    image.png.63b4a509a89bcaa9d179a5462d4e2ee1.png

    ^ attempted to sprite graphics for Hisame in some cutscenes using a base. More to come...

    - fixed up all of the face graphics

    - added a bit of developer's foresight in the True End route that some players could abuse in 1.0. Attempting to backtrack after the final chase scene will now net you an INSTANT Bad End. That's how I roll, kiddos.

     

    So what's next after Kamikakushi 2.0? Maybe helping my GF with her project? Or maybe I could try working on my other small-scale projects? Who knows.

  22. Phew, I was at a big Indian-style wedding today. To much formality for my tastes, and all the people around made me sort of nervous. But it was still quite the sight to see!

      Wine is bitter?

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      It's probably alcohol in general I find bitter... not sure, I don't really drink. Maybe more sour? But yeah, every bit of wine I have had always tasted like vinegar to me. Maybe I just never tried the really good stuff, I donno.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      PROPERLY FERMENTED, wine is far less bitter than sweet or tart, depending on the nature of the grape, or other fruit.

       

      A properly fermented red wine is very sweet, for instance. Strawberry wine is even sweeter (improper fermentation of strawberries leads to high levels of toxicity worse than arsenic but far less lethal-leads to a very harsh hangover after the effects wear off lol).

       

      I went to Red Lobster a little while back; I got a glass of red wine and it was not that great, but I've had far worse. It wasn't fermented well, nor for very long. It tasted cheap but not so much toxic.

       

      Like, properly fermented wine is a very long process, though how long depends on a number of factors including climate, elevation (very high elevations take a LOT LONGER BY A GREAT DEAL), the quality of the fruit, the method of pressing, the steps taken to begin the process, and so many more.

      Back home, for example, the wooden barrels used to ferment wine grapes in, are washed and scraped regularly because otherwise, the toxins from previous fermentations will seep into the next batch. They always have a set of barrels ready for the next batches, and when the barrels have reached their limits, the wood is burned (and damn it smells fantastic).

       

      Scraped? They scrape out two or three layers of wood out of the inside of each barrel as needed. A typical barrel of theirs lasts up to sixty-four fermentations. The grapes sit in the barrels fermenting for a whole season.

  23. I'm extremely late with this, but happy birthday! 😁

    I hope it was a great day for you.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      It was just another day, honestly.

       

      But the sentiment is appreciated, merci beaucoup.

       

  24. Well, anyway, happy 4/20 to those that observe/celebrate it.

      Slicing someone's head off is probobly a lot harder then you might think, but that's what makes guns kinda lame and swords awesome. I mean some people are really good with guns and are still impressive, but most of the time guns just seem boring to me.

       

      Being suitably dramatic can help magic for sure, but it can be fickle sometimes and you can't just pull a huge explosion out of your ass when ever you need it. Like I said, it needs to be balanced carefully. It's like making a game really. You can make magic do whatever you want but if you just make yourself OP your gonna get yourself nerfed one way or another. So there needs to be some type of limit or flaw. That's why magic always tends to cost something. Some kind of MP, time, reagents, HP, sometimes more extreme things. The whole 'MP' thing tends to be the easiest to deal with I think. Really I think that game-like stats are a pretty good abstraction for things sometimes, even if it can get a little bit silly.

       

      Of course, magic isn't really completely 'real'. It's mostly or maybe entirely 'unreal'. That means you can pretty much make up any kind of rules you want. But you need some kind of way for you to limit it, some kind of rules, for it to really work.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      When I actually translate what most consider to be magic from my native tongue to English, it really translates as 'sorcery'.

       

      Sorcery is the art of using the aether to do something that most others would not necessarily be able to, such as cast something/someone aflame, freezing them solid, encapsulating them in stone, concealing something in a cloak of invisibility, healing sickness in an instant or very quickly, among many other things.

       

      Things like disappearing acts, card tricks, illusions and such are not sorcery, they're mind tricks.

      Mind you, one can use sorcery to do a lot of the mind tricks you see on TV, but most of the magicians know how to manipulate what their audience sees, not manipulating/using aether specifically.

       

      Of course, pyrotechnics involving machines that are broken/fried by EMP, that cause detonations of rockets in an enclosed area (video above), that's neither mind tricks nor sorcery; it's internal combustion and technology. lol

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, I don't think 'mind tricks' and 'sorcery' are as different as you might think. You could say the fairy idea of magic is more like pulling a 'mind trick' on reality it's self, or remembering that what seems to be 'reality' is mostly a mind trick it's self. Using 'aether' is one way of doing that, but not the only way. After all, regardless if 'aether' is real or unreal, that's not where the magic is. The magic is in the manipulation not the thing being manipulated. :3

  26. I have decided not to leave as of yet.

    However, all in all, I have not been treated fairly. I can give exception to some who have indeed been far more fair and to this forum in general, but ultimately, the imbalance is wearing on me. Wearing on me hard, and no amount of 'internet break' will alleviate that. Only resolution and closure will.

  27. Yay! I'm 37 Today (I'm getting older...)
