  4. when you wanna make an animatic of your characters singing "no homo" but you realize you actually gotta draw and introduce em first ._.

      What about when you wanna make an animatic of your characters singing "no homo" but you realize they actually homo?

    2. kurin

      @Kayzee oh, my characters are 100% homo >:DDD

      "oh, my characters are 100% homo >:DDD"

      No homo.

      Phew, saved you.

  5. You know you've messed up web design and bad when even your own userbase cannot browse your site without getting violent migraines and vertigo.

      Seriously... I can't even go on the new deviantart anymore without getting violently sick. Whelp, time to move to Pixiv.

      Hmmm...I have DA set to Dark mode...
      I hope that doesn't change...

       

  6. what if I just summed up my characters in memes

  7. Anyone ever play the LoZlike game on Mega Drive called Ragnacenty, or in NA, Crusaders of Centy?

    It's really good, I find.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I know of 'Crusaders of Centy', but I don't think I have played it, or at least not that much. I never really got in to many megadrive/genesis games. About the only megadrive/genesis action/adventure/rpg I think ever played that much of was Byond Oasis, but that was ages ago and I can't remember too many details.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Beyond Oasis was the game that got published en mass whilst Ragnacenty had a relatively large following in Japan at the time. I watched the Gaming Historian's video on the game and remembered seeing the game one time and never getting to play it, though I wanted to.

  8. Anyone remember Star Stealing Prince? I'd sure love to port that game to either Ace or MV. As much as I love VX for everything it was the game would defiantly benefit from a newer engine. Come to think of it... If it's ported to Ace, it'll already run a lot smoother and I have the most experience with it. But if it's ported to MV, it could at least run on mobile? Idk considering MV still isn't even 100% stable 5 years later. Tough choice. Thoughts?

      Oh? So you're like Navi or even Aery or Airy? Well then... have a taste of iron you sick monster.

       

      Death to fairies

       

      Just like all cute creatures (sans bunnies and Yoshis and some lolis and shotas and possibly a neko or 2 here), fairies are the spawn of all that is evil and must be purged from this land.

       

      I will not stop until I have purified this land from the evil that dwells here.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hey hey! Stop it with the iron! Why do you think we are evil? Just because we tend to abduct, trick, steal from, magically charm, enchant, or just tend to annoy humans, doesn't mean we are evil! Maybe a tad sociopathic sometimes, sure, but not evil! I mean, it's hardly any worse then what humans do to themselves on a daily basis anyway. And there is nothing evil about being cute either! It's admittingly a nice way to catch victims off guard, but that doesn't make cute things evil! Though it might make evil things wanna look cute... Good and evil are just dumb human constructs anyway, we don't play by such silly rules.

       

      Besides, not all fairies are cute you know. Fairies tend to be treated as cute and harmless in modren media, but anyone knows anything about real fairy lore, well... You know the word 'Eldritch'? You know that one lovecraft loved to throw around?  *grins a little too wide* Do you wanna know where that word actually originally meant? Well, I am gonna tell you anyway. It originally meant 'elf-like', and in older times what today is called a 'fairy' was often called an 'elf'. We are literally the very definition of an eldritch being.

       

      But I'll go for now. Just be careful... We may not be evil, but we are sometimes easily offended. But... I like you! Your silly! So i'll try and play nice for now. Hehehehe... :3

  10. New profile pic!

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Is that supposed to be a plague doctor mask or just a mask that looks like a bird beak? Plague doctor masks are usually thinner and more curved I think, so not sure.

    2. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Really nice! 👍

    3. Lord Vectra

      Lord Vectra

      Its plague doctor mask. The character's subordinates has the more curvy ones.

       

      Riki, thx

  11. Now that I've found out that you can do scratch damage in the formula screen, I'm tempted to re-remake my entire battler's damage system.

     

    Maybe I need a side project to experiment with. A fangame for kicks.

      If you think HP is silly, check out how HERO system tracks damage as STUN (nonlethal) and BODY (lethal). You can stomp on someone's face all day and as long as you're not doing BODY damage all you're doing is just keeping them from waking up.

  12. Yeah; I'm a novice at RGSS.

    I admit it. I've admitted it before.

    But bashing my creativity over it is one really quick and sure way to enrage me.
    Sure, I could just write a gamebook using Quest. Probably would be quicker. Maybe I should of done that first, but I did not.

    I'll never be like one of those top-of-the-line devs, and I truly don't give a damn. I care more about making something worthwhile, something potentially relatable, and thus, from time to time, I ask for aid when I can't wrap my head around something. I'll admit that I ask when I'm at my wits' end maybe far too often, but I can't control when that happens either...


    I always do what I can for others as I am able. I always thought that to be more than enough in any aspect. Maybe it is, for a society not focused on what the government and MSM says...who knows.

    I know one thing for certain.
    My ineptitude probably cost me a lot.......

  13. one of my characters' voice claims is vinny vinesauce, which makes writing serious scenes for him unbelievably awkward because I just keep imagining him making the most inhuman noises.

  14. So, yeah...
    This is an issue...

  15. Is there a sort of "weather" or animation system that would allow for a "disco" effect? Like with multicolor circles moving around the floor as an overlay

  16. Okay, so I did a big stupid and forgot to add the regular version of the traveling typewriter font for YM&NM which explains why the font doesn't show up for me or other gamers. I'm sorry! I'll include it in the next fix.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      All is well, all is well. No worries, really.

  17. The next chapter of YM&NM may be delayed. My current PC is trying so hard to die, so I'm sending it in for repairs. Worst case scenario: I may be without a PC until I get a new one.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I myself have a defective HDD that I cannot do anything about so I know that feeling of dread which in turn becomes stress...

  18. I was gonna drop YM&NM episode 1, but last-minute playtesting revealed the item menu can't be accessed. At all. Back to the coding block...

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Uh-oh...








      That sucks (you thought I was gonna say 'Spaghettios!' LMAO)

  19. you'd think I would've been using all this quarantine time to continue writing

    or finalizing character designs

    or anything productive

     

     

     

     

     

    yeah maybe in some other timeline I would have lol

      @PhoenixSoul @Kayzee oh true? I thought that was a term everyone knew :0

      executive functioning is essentially- the cogs in your brain. you know how when you think "I wanna do this today" and you do it? that's executive functioning.

      executive dysfunction is when you think "I wanna do this today", but you're still glued to the spot you're currently in. your brain, nerves, everything is saying "IF YOU WANNA DO THE THING DO IT NOW" but you're still sitting there. not because laziness or "not really wanting to do that", but because- well- that one cog in your brain that actually gets you up to do something just isn't working, no matter how much you really want to stop sitting there doing nothing. it can mess up your time management, planning, problem-solving, etc. and it's prevalent in people with mental disorders like autism or adhd. (I'm autistic fyi)

       

      so most days, I think to myself "I wanna draw/write/be productive", but end up doing nothing but watch youtube videos or lurk on social media because that specific function? doesn't work. not to say it NEVER works, but I really have to push myself to plug in my tablet or pull up google docs if I actually wanna get any work done.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yeah, that's what I thought. I have basically the same problem. I have been diagnosed with aspergers and adhd. But honestly? I am not sure if being diagnosed as such is really that informative or helpful. It seems like it's a bunch of symptoms that no one really understands thrown together in a box. Some I have, some I don't. I am not saying it can't be a useful tool to get help, but I wonder sometimes if thinking of these types of problems as 'mental disorders' is misdirecting people. It really doesn't matter, it's a problem regardless.

       

      When it comes to not doing things, I might have a broken brain cog, or I might just be lazy, or I might just not want to do things as much as I think I do. But what I suspect more then anything else is that all three are true. I suspect that the actual problem with my brain is that I just don't get the kind of endorphin rush that normal people get for doing things. I just don't find things as rewarding. As a consequence I don't really want to do things, even if i do (yes, you can in fact want and not want something at the same time). And because of that I become incredibly lazy which causes me to want to do things even less.

       

      Here is the interesting thing though: I don't think this behavior pattern is actually universally bad. If we consider the opposite scenario, it's easy to see how someone might be caught up in having too much of an endorphin rush, causing them to because impulsive and/or have an addictive personality. It seems to me like more and more 'normal' people are being preyed on by people who exploit human psychology. Is some of this in fact an adaption created in response? Who knows? But either way, it can get really annoying.

      PhoenixSoul

      I can safely say I have the same executive dysfunction issues, though they're triggered externally, for the most part (meaning that it's other people spreading me thin and stressing me out).

  20. You know how in Looseleaf, there's height differences between the two sprite types?

    That's really stupid. Makes me wanna shrink the taller one.....lolz

    What were you thinking, Mack?

      @Kayzee Or to pixel-modify one set to have a certain look (it is not easy to give/take boobs)...

    3. UncannyBoots

      UncannyBoots

      I've had those issue more than a few times. At this point I'm just completely designing my own clothes/body types for my characters (I have some very muscular characters in my game...) while keeping the looseleaf base but it is a lot of work so I wish there were male and female variations of clothing and body types in the default generator.

      Btw, do you two use Game Character Hub or the old online generator? I haven't been able to find the latter since geocities was taken down, is it still up? GCH is better regardless but I still miss the old online looseleaf generator for nostalgia reasons lol

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      The old looseleaf generator is somewhere, likely archived. I've used it before.

      GCH is far more stable.

  21. It's May Day! Also known as Beltane by us pagan types. It's a important day for fairies you know! Like Samhain/Holloween it's a time when the barriers between worlds is weak and fairies are likely to visit the human world to play! Yay!

  22. Finally finished updating the Library of Ideas. If this site gets another makeover and huge parts of the library gets deleted, I ain't gonna redo it lol

      Count on either that or a site merge/site closure at some point...

      (I really am tired of having to use the on-screen keyboard... 🙁)

  23. So after what, 6 or so years i come back here and still see the same people active, very impressive.

  25. Ignore the spoiler. In another project where I had copied several scripts from Ramsey over (mainly to keep from being completely depressed), I found that one of those scripts had odd anomalies in that I had (long ago) tried to implement something, and it didn't work as intended. So, I decided to disable that, and that was it, or so I thought...

    Bubblewand, I love your Rename Anything script, but because renaming elements isn't possible, and it was easy to leave certain parts without defined functions, it completely BORKED SAVING GAME PROGRESS. GRRR... Sorry, @Kayzee, dearest love...

    tl;dfr Saving FIXED.

     

    Spoiler

    So, because Ramsey is no longer able to save game progress, looks like that's yet another failed project...

    I'm past the 'DAMMIT!!' stage already. Looks like this is goodbye, Ramsey. If I have to deal with anymore failures, I'll be saying goodbye to gamedev, and maybe everything else.

      Zipping and reuploading since the previous project version is way dated.

      Oh! You managed to find the problem yourself? Well I will take a look anyway.

      By COMPLETE COINCIDENCE... Sweet Mercy...

  26. I played a tiny bit of the demo for the remake of Trials of Mana (which is a name I still have to get used to after calling it Seiken Densetsu 3 for decades) and it took no more then a half a minute before I started getting punched repeatedly in the nostalgia organ.

     

    I kind of find the pixel art of the original SNES game more impressive then the all new 3D revamp, but on the other hand the original was filled with what kids these days might call 'The Jank' (really the whole series was) and I am hoping the remake's gameplay holds up better. Only saw a tiny bit of combat so far, but it looks promising!

     

     

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Having never played any of the Mana series...the graphics are impressive from looking at the screenies...

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I mean don't get me wrong the remake's 3D look is fine, just not as impressive. The original pixel art on the other hand possibly rivals Chrono Trigger as some of the best pixel art on the SNES. The remake on the other hand looks a lot like a higher resolution PS2 game. Which is not really much of a complaint mind, because the PS2 cast a looong shadow on the state of game graphics. I mean, I still think games like Dark Cloud 2 or Ico running on the PS2 hold up pretty well, as blury as they are. Not too many years ago I might have even said that graphics technology really still haven't progressed that much since the PS2.

       

      Still, if I compare the Trials of Mana remake to, say, Animal Crossing there is no doubt Animal Crossing is a more impressive looking game in my eyes. There is a heck of a lot of detail in the animation and texture work.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      The majority of what I've experienced for the PS2 still holds up well, graphics-wise. Gran Turismo 4/Tourist Trophy* is one of the best looking games for the console.
      * Tourist Trophy is a motorcycle racing game that uses the same engine as GT4.

      Yeah; the SFC had a lot going for it graphics wise, no doubt.

      yes, I prefer the standard 104 key type keyboard. My most expensive one is $60 CAD. Has issues typing. if you don't press the keys firmly then it missed keys. Another is light so it slides around on my glass desk. So I keep getting new ones to find the best fit. Trouble is that makes it expensive.

      Okay, @roninator2. Let us discuss this elsewhere.

      You know something that makes me feel kinda guilty? I just got a new laptop keyboard the other day because my currant one has some problems (some keys are sticky and don't work right half the time, and the down arrow key is entirely missing). Though the jokes on me because I need to take apart my laptop to install it and I forgot that I have no idea where any of my screwdrivers are. >w<
