    Stack Level too Deep?

    This mostly is a sign of a recursive loop. I find with RPG Maker scripts that kind of error most often shows up because of aliases. There are situations where there can end up being an infinite loop of aliases that call each other over and over. It can happen sometimes because two scripts are using the same alias name, and sometimes because scripts are in the wrong order. Though there are times where it's not really all that obvious without really debugging the heck out of the code.
  2. Here is a sorta weird demo of a skill system I have been working on for a while. It's based on a modified version of this script with lotsa extra features. skilldemo.zip It's main extra fetures are the ability to attach skills to other skills, restrict stuff so you can only attach some skills to perticular skills or skill types, some extra animation stuff, and my own custom skills system that lets you have multible copies of skills, each with there own name and configurations of add on skills. It's kinda complex and the menu may not be as easy to use as it should be. I do think it's pretty neat though. It's probobly gonna have a ton of little niggly details and strangeness I need to iron out. I think for the most part, if you know how to use the grathnode install script, it's more or less the same except you can make skills grathnodes... but there are so many little details to talk about... I may write more documentation later. Some more info: Edit: Made it so it didn't check the grathnode's/metaskill's occasion anymore, so you could have items and skills that are set to never and still work as grathnodes/metaskills. Also merged the "Grathnode Tweaks" and "Metaskills Apply" scripts since they overlap a lot, and made my weird minimum tp cost thing it's own script so it could be tweaked or deleted. Edit 2: Custom skills now cost MP/TP properly now.

    Changing Step Animation With Script Calls

    Hehe, You are very welcome! *sprinkles fairy dust on you*

    Changing Step Animation With Script Calls

    @pattern is set to @original_pattern when a character stops, which is why it resets to the middle frame.

    Placing a carpet over a trap door

    If you want to use multiple states, you need to have the carpet and the door as one object which doesn't move and only changes what it looks like. Easiest way is just have two event pages one for when the trap door is covered and one for when it's not. You can probobly make it look like the carpet moves though. Ever used the 'Quick Event Creation' menu to make a door? it's a good example of using event graphics to make little animations. It's also helpful to note that event graphics can actually be pretty large if needed.

    Placing a carpet over a trap door

    Is there any particular reason why you don't want to use a single event with multiple states? I mean, it would be easier to have a 'covered state' and an 'uncovered state' using a switch or self switch and multiple pages. But on the other hand, I can see how having them both be different events could be useful in some situations, like if you wanted to give the player the ability to move the carpet in anyway they wanted. Problems are that: A. While the game engine handles two events on the same tile fine, the editor doesn't allow it (you can still do it, you just have to move the events over one another manually through scripting), and B. I am pretty sure using the action button to start an event will start all of them on the same tile.

    Entry 00F: Earth, I Do Not Belong Here

    Well, regardless if you are selfish for wanting it to be over, I am still gonna be selfish and wish you keep sticking around. You can blame me all you want for that. I am not going to hide form my selfishness, from my 'sin'. In fact, I am proud of it. But even so, I get it. I really do. I do not begrudge you for demanding more, for expecting something better. I will not even begrudge you for giving up. I will do what I can to stop you from doing so, but I can really do very little in the end. Divine or mortal, I want you to stay in this world. Because I can't, and won't, follow you if you leave. Or maybe come to mine, but I doubt that's possible for you right now. I think it's still possible that you can find happiness here. I really do. But that's not very helpful is it? You know... I said I would do whatever I can but... No. That's not true. It's a polite turn of phase and a bad habit. Maybe I could send you every dollar I had, maybe I could find a way to get to you and steal you away, but all I really am willing to do is give you pep talks when I can, and it's obvious I could do more. Lots of people could. Most people are selfish, most people 'sin'. There may be genuinely pure good people out there, I don't know. But then, even if there are, how many misdeeds and evil actions have been done in the name of 'good'? Far too many. I think it's pretty logical why most people act the way they do. Well maybe not logical exactly, but understandable. That's why I find it hard to blame humans really, to hate them. They really are just a bunch of animals scurrying after any bit of meat they can find, just machines programed to adapt and survive. I actually find it awe inspiring that the world is as good of a place as it is. Not that that makes problems go away though mind, but it's still a work in progress, it hasn't reach it's final stage. I want to see what the world will be when it does, don't you?

    Saving Issues.

    Yeah, that's a sign that there was an error when saving the game, and it's mostly caused by scripts using 'undumpable' objects in places they shouldn't, like bitmaps, sprites, fibers, procs, and others. Any object that is saved needs to be 100% clear of them. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to make this mistake and not realize it actually, and it doesn't help that normally it just gives a beep and doesn't tell you anything about what is wrong. I made a save debugger once to help me track down what object was giving me the error but I am not sure how well it works and it probably isn't that useful unless you know scripting. Basically, there are lots of scripts that can mess with your ability to save and no one realizes it. It's probobly a good idea to test saving whenever you add a new script, but that might not even catch it unless the conditions are just right.
  9. Tee-hee, I just finished a cut scene in my game which introduces a particular trio of fairies.

     

    You might remember me talking about them before. They are three special unique enemies that randomly show up sometimes and harass the player, mostly by stealing stuff and teleporting away.

     

    Anyway I realized that I never really came up with names for them and when thinking about it I became tempted to name them Sophia, Emma, and Madison, though I doubt anyone will ever get the reference. That and the personalities don't really match. As annoying as they may be they are still fun-loving fairies and not sociopathic high school bullies. Huh? What's the difference you ask? Fairies have style. ;)

      You might like it, it has a character named 'Amy' in it that kinda reminds me of you, mostly because life isn't really all that kind to her. But in that setting life isn't very kind to most people.

  10. Wait wait wait... The French Normans, the people I always blame for messing up the English language by dumping a whole bunch of French words into it, are at least partly actually decedents of Vikings who settled in France?!?!? But... What... I...  ...  I... I... think I need to lay down and have a good think about this...

      And Latin is based in an ancient language that once feared speaking in religious tongues because the people knew that the stories were and still are phonier than three dollar bills (actually all fiat currency).

       

      I don't recall the name of the language off the top of my head, though.

      True, so true, but it's memory that's fickle...

  11. Okay let me put it another way... How would you say the value of the color blue is compared to that of the moon? Would you trade one for the other? Can you put a price on those things? How about right and up? How do you value rightness compared to upness? A rainy day to a foggy one? Maybe you can think about what one you would prefer, but do you have an absolute idea of value? Can you really judge fairness without one? Do you know the real truth of everything you see? Do you know what the rules really are? Are their any rules? Why should there be? Who put them there? Do they actually help you? You're exhausted, you're frustrated, you're hurt and you suffer... I believe that. I think you can trust that. You are not alone in that. Is that fair? Is tiredness fair? Why does it exist? is frustration fair? Why are we able to feel that way? is pain fair? Even if pain is meant to teach you, does it have to hurt so much? Is suffering fair? What meaning could their possibly be in it? Is free will fair? Why do we think? Is control fair? Why do we have to be controlled? What's the point of all these things really? What's the point of anything? Why are we here? Why does anything exist at all? There is only one answer I can give: Because it does. And isn't that amazing? Isn't that baffling and wonderful and terrible? Things exist! Bad things, good things, things we don't know about yet... Despite everything, it is still here. It may be selfish of me, but is it wrong for me to want you to be around? You know, there is this great quote about fairness I really enjoy...
  12. It's not that I don't believe in some kind of 'fairness' or 'balance' at all, it's just that I don't believe in absolutes. I don't think that the value of any one thing is every exactly worth the value of another. I don't want to upset you, but it seems to me like some might accuse you of doing the same thing, scapegoating others and blaming them. I don't think that's 'fair', but I don't think you are very 'fair' to most people either. Granted some people... well you just can't treat them any other way. Some people just seem poisonous. It dosn't even matter if they are at fault or deserve it, it's just the only way it seems like you can interact with them. But most people? Well, most people might as well be animals or machines. And the thing is, I don't think fairness is even what you are really looking for. What anyone really is looking for.. I think its another tool people use. If I am upsetting you in anyway, just tell me to shut up and I will clam up. I know I can do that sometimes, and though I am trying to help in my own way, I don't want to make you upset.
  13. I just think you are too focused on who's 'to blame' and who's 'responsible' and what people 'deserve'. Heck I think most people are. But what good is it? What worth is it seek 'justice' or 'fairness' if things are going to be the same anyway? You said yourself what you are doing: Trying to find a Balance where there isn't one. As much as I believe a kind of 'free will' to exist, people are still just machines, and quite a lot of them broken machines at that. Are people truly blameless for their actions? No. But they arn't often fully at fault either. But that's not really the point is it? People don't get punished because they are at fault, punishment is just another tool people use to fulfill their own agendas. Even if they believe strongly in justice for all, it's still a tool to enforce their own kind of justice. I am not saying not to use the tool, I am just saying that I think there are better ways to think about the problem.
  14. I feel you girl, but I honestly can't help but feel sometimes that the narrative you construct around yourself sounds a little dubious. Not that I don't believe you mind, at least any less then I believe anyone else, but that's not really the point. I understand feeling like you are stuck and that everything in the world is holding you back. I felt that way too a lot in the past and still do sometimes. But, at least for me, it feels like there is really a lot more going on under the surface. I think if you dig a little deeper you will slowly unravel more and more of the puzzle. It feels sometimes like you kinda gave up on solving the puzzle. That your frustrated and fed up banging your head on the wall, that you just don't even feel like bothering. I get that. I want to see if I can give you clues sometimes, but every person has their own little puzzle to work through. I have a sneaking suspicion though that I am pretty far along mine, and maybe I can help! Maybe that is just my way of dealing with it all of course, seeing a pattern in the noise which may or may not actually be there. But I kinda like trying to solve it anyway. To me the puzzle it's self is fun. And I honestly think more and more that that's kind of the whole point. If you ask me, life is more or less just the ultimate gamedev tool. People make up their own games and puzzles and have their own rules, and sometimes those games arn't fun and the rules are not stacked in your favor. I think people should be able to make their own games, their own way of living, that would make them happy. Sometimes it's really hard to do, but I think it can be done.
  15. Yay, it's time for Samhain! Tonight the borders between worlds are weak and us fairies can go out and have fun! Hehe, so if you see a fairy or other strange creature tonight it might not be a costume! :3

      Still not answering the door; rowdy ruffian teenagers are running around and playing pranks like Ding-Dong-Ditch. 

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yeah, us fairies are likely to prank you too. But at least fairy pranks are usually more creative then that!

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Oh, I know you'd try something far more elaborate.

      What that is, I wouldn't know, but probably far better than trying to chase these assholes down for a beating.

  16. Glad to help! Might not be the same problem, but I am curious if you can get the editor to reindex the map files somehow. I don't think you can, but I am not sure.
  17. The maps are probobly not indexed in the MapInfos.rvdata2 file then. That can happen if you just copy maps into a project without creating them in the editor. I recommend you move any of the map files that don't show up somewhere else and try to create new maps in the editor with the same ID number. Then you can move the maps back and overwrite the blank map files you just made and they will show up in the editor.
  18. I went to the Iron Kettle Farm today! Every year around this time the farm has a neat little pumpkin-themed thing. I didn't end up staying long or doing much this year cause it was cold, but I got some pumpkin pie at least! :9

    1. PhoenixSoul

      Neat. Sounds like a fun little place to visit, especially if they have oddities for sale and/or perusal.

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      It's mostly displays they set up with pumpkin-headed scarecrow people and some other attractions. They do have a fair amount of stuff for sale too though.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      I've always wanted one of those weird hourglasses that the sand goes from the bottom to the top instead of the traditional way. I saw one once in an oddities shop, but I didn't get it...

  21. Hmmm... I think my little lunisolar calendar project is coming along nicely. I had to totally revamp it though. It's still probably not that accurate but... honestly, what calendar really is?

      I like that it prints to the console, though it would be neat to see it appear on the menu screen or something of the like.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, well all I have done for now is come up with the basic calculations. I will need to refine it more if I want to do anything more useful.

  22. I guess I can see how us fairies can annoy some demons... A lot of them are waaaay too serious! Demons should stop trying to be 'EVIIIILLLL' all the time and just have fun! They are so focused on getting back at that old man... Yeah he's a jerk and all, but some of them are a biiiiit too obsessed is all. ...And I am rambling again... Sorry about that, tends to happen. I can be a real exposition fairy sometimes... Hehehe...
  23. Why have I not seen this game before? Or maybe I did but somehow didn't comment? Anyway, neat! Always nice to see sexy games about us fairies. I have to try it out! *sprinkles fairy dust around the topic.* Though I have to say, I for one end up getting along with a lot of the demons I meet, especially succubi. You would be surprised how much us fairies actually have in common with them sometimes! Hehehe...

    Cuuuute! :3
  25. I just made my own encyclopedia script, cause I wasn't happy with the one I was fiddling with. I called it 'Pedia! :3 Yes including the ! at the end and the ' at the start. It's cute, don't judge me!

     

    Er anyway,  it requires some other scripts, so I am not sure if I will release it on it's own. Aaaand it's not nearly done yet anyway. Still I am happy with cute widdle 'Pedia! ... Maybe I should make it a character in my game, like a talking book or a literal exposition fairy that follows you around. :P

      True, though I've yet to see the ramifications for all the cheating garbage I've been through.
      Anyway, how's that lunar calendar coming along?

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Haven't really been working on it. Been doing other stuff instead.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, I do want to see how both this and your lunar calendar turn out.
      Keep on rockin' it, love.
