  1. I'm currently testing out MGC's Mode 7 script set for VX Ace.

    I wanna see if it would be possible to implement it for various parts of Ramsey, like driving/chase scenes, and such. The idea would be to have the camera always behind the player during this portion of the game, so the map rotation included with v1.8 (not in the workshop) would also be needed.

    I've run across some weirdness involving the script set, which includes tile artifacting and crashes. Not sure how to prevent this (since I cannot read French and Google Translate is a hot pile of burning garbage), if it is even possible, lolz

      I think that script mostly uses a dll to do stuff.

      Hehe, awww... See that's perfect! Penguins have the right idea I say! Love doesn't need to be a complicated stressful thing, it just needs to come from the heart! Even a marriage license is somewhat unneeded really... I mean in many states if you two live together for long enough you basically can just declare yourself married. It's called a "common law marriage". :3

  3. There's a new MV pack with VX's characters. I'm considering buying it. Do you guys think VX's graphics mix well with MV's graphics?

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I thought VX and VX Ace had the exact same graphics?

      Well if you ask me, marriage is kind of a silly meaningless ritual that doesn't actually accomplish much. I mean, if you already love each other to that level, you don't actually need to prove it don't ya think? Then again, silly meaningless rituals can be fun sometimes too!

       

      Honestly you should talk with your boyfriend about how he feels about the whole thing. He might not see the point of it, or he might be scared, or maybe he has some other issue with it. I know one person having a big dramatic proposal is often thought of as really romantic, but I think it's always better to communicate and work out your feelings about something as a couple together, not one expecting the other to do something first.

      So now you can snuggle him (or do... other things) when ever you want? That sounds nice. :3

      No way, they are completely different sizes and styles. But if this pack has them redrawn in MV style anyway, it won't really be VX graphics.

      Yeah, I think peppermint is enough on it's own. Only thing I have anyway.

       

      Though what do you do with this stuff when you make it? I put a tiny bit of peppermint right under my nostrils.. That may be painful for most people, but not so much for me.

      Well, I have used peppermint stuff in the past... You know I forgot I had any! I should use some!

       

      Though I heard most essential oil stuff is quackery... But I am a magical fairy so maybe I shouldn't be so skeptical. XD

       

      I know, I know... "Why don't you just cure your sinuses with magic?" you might be asking. Well... the reason is kind of complicated, but I'll give you the layman's version: Because shut up. Shut up is why.

       

      ... I DON'T KNOW HOW OKAY!? >_<

       

      It's not like I know a spell for every little thing. I know some spells that help a bit though... My favorite is the 'Order Spicy Food' spell I can cast with my phone. :3

  13. With the current asset pack I am using, I found myself using events for tile overlays once more. This is a temporary thing until I get a chance to merge these individual tilesets into one cohesive tile set, and possibly more.

    There's a lot of potential with the asset packs I grabbed with the latest assets sale that ends soon, and I look forward to seeing Ramsey travel through them...

      I hope I get to felling better too! Personally I blame all the nasty pollution in the human world. It's hard on a delicate fairy like me! :3

      The fairy of course! XD Or half-fairy. Close enough. :3

  17. I used events as a fourth layer for graphic bits at one point, though this was far more viable back in RPG Maker XP.

    I actually miss the functionality of the tile mapper in XP in later iterations since any tile could be placed on any layer, and that's never been topped. Like, making a land bridge appear using just grass tiles on the event layer is really awesome.

    I mean, sure, one can kinda sorta do that in VX/Ace, but not easily...

    1. Kayzee

      @Verdiløs Games Yeah that's what most people do. It's actually not that bad of an idea on smaller maps, but with large maps it can become a pain to deal with just because of the massive image sizes. Personally I wouldn't want to use images more then say 1024x1024 for backgrounds, but my laptop is old.

       

       @PhoenixSoul You can create one the same way the first three are created.

      Viewports are objects that have to be created. They are created in the Spriteset_Map's create_viewports method:

       

        #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
        # * Create Viewport
        #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
        def create_viewports
          @viewport1 = Viewport.new
          @viewport2 = Viewport.new
          @viewport3 = Viewport.new
          @viewport2.z = 50
          @viewport3.z = 100
        end

       

      The Viewport class it's self is part of the engine like Bitmap and Sprite though.

      The funny thing is, the file format still supports any tile on any layer, it's just another dumb limitation of the editor. Not sure how events would work with auto tiles though.

       

      One thing I have experimented with is loading more then one map at once on top of each other for different layers. VX Ace displays maps using a graphical object called a Tilemap.Though usually there is only one, you can actually create more! It used fixed z values for tiles, but you can still fiddle with draw order by using Viewports or controlling the order they are created in.

       

      I haven't really made any maps that load other maps as other layers myself, though I do generate a 'fog of war' Tilemap in my game that I use in dungeons. It starts out all back and parts are cleared as the player explored, and I use the autotile updater script I made to make it smoothish.

  20. My ear problems have not gone away. It's been like two weeks, so I think it's near time I saw another doctor. 😮

  21. My bf and I anonymously borrowed a bunch of traffic cones and blocked my rude neighbour's driveway with them. >:3c

    An endless supply of contrarian fussing can be a bit much for anyone.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Eh? Did you block me or something? Awww... :(

       

      Sometimes I think maybe I do end up doing too much 'contrarian fussing' as you put it. But, if I was blocked I bet I know why, and last time I was blocked it was basically for the exact same reason: Because I don't abide people being attacked by silly macho internet cynicism. And you know, as much as being blocked feels like I failed, I have a hard time thinking I was in the wrong being blocked for that reason.

       

      Yeah I know, straw that broke the camel's back and all that. I am not going to claim there wasn't more to it and it's not at least partly my fault. The frustrating thing is I don't think anyone has really gained anything from all this. Everyone is just going to walk away with the same biases and problems they always had, and everything will be forgotten. What kind of ending is that?

  23. Yay, I got my replacement power adapter! I am back! :3

  24. When I started Memory of the Fallen Leaves, I was confident I could finish a large-scale project with just a two person team. Now that I'm older and wiser, I realize just how foolish that was. Neither my girlfriend and I had any idea how to code anything super complex and story-wise, a lot of things didn't make sense.

    At first, I took a break from it to work on smaller scale projects when I came to realize working on smaller scale projects is much more fun and easier to do then blindly jumping in headfirst into a large-scale project.

    So it is with a heavy heart I must say that Memory of the Fallen Leaves will be placed on a semi-permanent hiatus. The story needs serious rewriting and revising before I can work on it again. I'm not sure how long that'll take us, though.

  25. Happy Halloween and happy birthday to me~
