  1. Well, I'm 41 now. Getting old sucks! Chronic Fatigue has me bedridden most of the time & has ruined my entire sleep schedule. At least I've lived long enough to watch the world burn & wokeness rot society from the inside out ☹️.

      It does, I myself am in a not too good condition. 🙁 And yeah, it do be like that.

      I hope you had a happy birthday regardless.

      41 that’s not old 😀

      It certainly feels that way when you have Asthma, Chronic Fatigue, no upper teeth, and can barely drag yourself out of your own home, much less out of bed. Feels like I'm 20 years older than I'm supposed to.

  2. Great, I'm now a 40-year-old Old Man, yay. 🧓🙁

      Nope! My local Walmart ruined it with their perpetual stupidity. It's like the morons running it are getting stupider and stupider each month. But thank you!

      And it took a turn for the worse! I had to "Old Yeller" my old laptop. Years of work with RPG Maker & SMBX down the drain. Everything that meant anything to me was on that hard drive. I am now officially dead inside. I managed to salvage the hard drive, heard you can make them into external hard drives & can retrieve the files on them, if the hard drive isn't too damaged.

      However, are you really that age, or is the magic gate system playing mind games with you?

      Ya know, Windows 10 corrupted the only HDD option I had for my more capable PC, so I know exactly what you're dealing with. I don't even have a SATA to USB option for (potential) data retrieval.

  3. Yay. I turned 39 today. Another year old, another year closer to the grave.

    1. Rikifive


      Ouch, yeah, it is like this..


      Happy birthday! ~I hope you're having a nice one 🎉🎈

      I turned 36 at 1:06am today.


      Another 20 and we are officially old.

      Ah, here's a celebratory gift:


  4. For the record, RMMZ, despite stating that Windows 8.1 is the minimum requirement, does actually work on Windows 7! Both the editor & even a test play worked fine, although I did experience some slowdown during battle, including battle animations. So if you're still using Win7, you're not excluded from using it. Just make sure you have good hardware (processor, graphics card, RAM, etc.)

    1. AVGB;KBGaming


      So, it's likely that I'll need better hardware or at least a dedicated GPU.

      Still, this is good to know.

  5. The problem with royalty based payment is knowing how many sales or how much money was actually generated. How would you verify that? What if the developer lied & downplayed the amount of money made? How would you find out for sure? And not everyone would distribute it on Steam. Some developers may just put up their own site to distribute from (more profitable to simply cut out the middle man aka Steam), or just compress their game in a password locked, encrypted folder & offer the password to those who paid directly to their account. How would you verify any money made in those situations?
  6. I for one advocate for free resources, simply because I have 0 income & can't afford to keep throwing money at this flawed as hell engine. I'm already miffed that MZ requires Windows 8.1 or better, giving the finger to anyone still using Windows 7, the best version ever made before Microsoft sold out to the NSA's mass surveillance BS. I also still feel like MZ really is just a properly upgraded MV, offering new features that Kadokawa should've already thought of & implemented a long time ago. I also agree that Donations are the best way to raise money for further developments. It allows those who have money to throw around to help fund further developments for plugins, graphics & music, while keeping it free & available for those who can't afford it, especially considering several people have lost jobs & income due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Booster Pack & Card Icons

    I looked all over the internet for Booster Pack icons for a game I'm making involving cards but couldn't find any anywhere! So I had to make them myself. If you're making a game that uses cards & want some actual booster pack icons, here you go. Terms of Use: These are free to use, Commercial or not, and feel free to recolor & repost them as you wish (just don't claim that YOU made them yourself). Credit isn't required but is appreciated. The cards themselves are actually recolored card icons from VX Ace's iconset, while the booster packs themselves are made by me.

    Sci-Fi Tileset edits

    Made some recolored edits to some of the sci-fi tilesets. Includes a SF_Inside_D I made with colored lasers & some floor tiles so they can be used as event images (since you can't set A Tiles as event images, which is still really stupid). Also have a SF_Inside_A5 with recolors of the cyberspace floor tile. Haven't gotten around to making matching A4 walls with them yet though. And I also turned the Cyberspace battleback into a parallax background (Resized for screen Resolution). But you may need to resize it based on whatever screen resolution you have your project set to (if using Yanfly's Core Engine or Screen Resolution plugins).

  10. Why is it that when I receive a PM from somebody, I get double the notifications (1 from the bell "Somebody sent you a message" & 1 from my PMs)? Seems kind of redundant don't you think? If someone receives a PM, there's a specific notification for that from the messages icon. Don't need one coming from the bell too. Somebody should fix that . . .
  11. I'm using Yanfly's Attachable Augments & I couldn't help but notice that he didn't include a way to prevent stacking of the same augment or multiple augments that boost a parameter. This can lead to some super broken setups like stacking EVA+ augment until the character is untouchable or even stacking Physical or Magical Damage Rate augments like -10% to -50% until they become invincible. Is there anybody that could add a feature to prevent stacking of either the same exact augment or augments that boost the same parameter?
  12. Pretty much. My only problem with it is that it doesn't support its use as a passive state. I've asked if this could be added as an option.
  13. I'm looking for a plugin that can setup states to apply a controllable amount of skill repeats, basically abilities like Double/Triple/Quad Cast. It could setup notetags to states that apply an x amount of repeats to select skills, which would be controlled by skill notetags like this <multi cast>. Any help with this would be appreciated.
  14. This issue was already solved. Just needed to set the collectable events to 'Through'
  15. I need events to pass over other events. I have some events that chase the player using YEP Event Chase Player that have their Priority set to Same as Player & a bunch of collectable events around the map set to Below the Player, but the chasing events can't pass over the collectable events. I tried to set them to 'Through' & used YEP Region Restrictions to stop them from going through the walls, but they ignore the restricted regions too! How can I set up my chasing events to pass through other events without them going through walls?
  16. Well, I turned 38 today. Yippee-ki-yay! My mom visited me today, without wearing a mask! I have asthma so if I catch the Doomsday Virus, I'm a goner.


    Not-so-Fun Fact: Seems the Covid-19 virus is a hybrid viral bio weapon consisting of at least SARS & HIV. That means severe & permanent lung damage as well as the destruction of your immune system, which is probably why people are either getting reinfected, or the virus goes into remission like Herpes & can flare back up later, which only seems like a reinfection, but its really that you can't develop antibodies for it because of the HIV aspect of it.

      Nobody likes a Negative Nancy :(

      As for the blame game, think of it this way. What if someone close to you was murdered? Wouldn't you want to know who was responsible for it? Even if you can't do something about it, knowing who it was & knowing that justice was brought down upon them gives CLOSURE. We need closure for this pandemic. We got reminded that China & Communism can never be trusted. They have always been the enemy, not just against the US, but all of humanity.

    3. AVGB;KBGaming


      What about a Realistic Rachel? Underappreciated as well.

      However, getting closure is just as underappreciated, and I have lots of closure I'll never get due to various reasons though most of them being related to power-tripping admin/moderators/banker-bought-political puppets && policy enforcers...

      We need to take that closure for ourselves and end the reign of government altogether. The USA was founded on Anarchist principles (yup one hundred percent true); we need to go back to those principles and stick to them, if we want to live truly free. The price of true freedom? Constant vigilance.

      @Animebryan Is that what 'closure' means to you then? Sounds like an excuse not to have to think of it anymore or do anything else about it to me. If someone close to me was murdered deliberately by an individual person, sure I would want to know who. I would even grant you I would want to know who if it was due to someone's gross negligence or stupidity. But that doesn't mean I am willing to blame someone without any real evidence they are involved just because I want some kind of 'closure'. Especially someone I know won't actually face any kind of justice for it.


      What you are talking about doesn't seem much like closure to me. Seems to me like what you want a devil you can blame for everything great and small. And don't get me wrong, there are plenty of reasons to dislike China & Communism. But the enemy of all of humanity? That tittle is more then they deserve. If humanity has one great enemy, it's their own delusions.


      @PhoenixSoul Anarchism starts with you ya know, not the government. The real price of true freedom is the realization that you are already free.

    Diverse Graphics

    For the record, RPG Maker 95 was the first RM program to be released for the PC, not for the PS1. RPG Maker (PS1) RPG Maker 95
  18. MV has a lot of Plugins (just as many Scripts as Ace, if not more). Heck, Yanfly's library of plugins easily outweighs his VX Ace collection of Ruby Scripts, and they offer far more versatile features & options. MV is the first & only RPG Maker engine to support HD resolution, while Ace is still limited to a 640x480 resolution. And who is 'They'? Who remade this using old SFC Graphics? Re-imagining isn't the same thing as a remake (similar to what's happening with the FF7 'Remake'). That phrase actually worries me, because there's another guy who is attempting to do a re-imagining with Ace & not only is his game butchering the classic but he's trying to add so much stuff to the game that he's having issues with scripts & I think he got seriously set back to the point of starting all over again, if he hasn't quit already. I haven't heard of any remake that uses the old NES graphics that I know of.
  19. I need a 'shatter-kill' effect for my Frozen state. Basically, when a target is frozen & is hit with a physical attack, there would be a random chance for that target to die instantly. I need a way to pull this off with a sound effect. I don't care if its done by plugin or damage formula.
  20. I'm actually a strong believer of the KISS concept. Simplistic is the better way for my game. Its literally a 'Grind-fest Gacha' game & games like that actually benefit from having shorter battles or otherwise players begin to lose their patience & burn out.
  21. I usually already incorporate these in my games, as each of the 8 initial elements has a negative status effect tied to it; Fire - Burn/Burning Ice - Freeze/Frozen (possible shatter-kill) Thunder/Lightning - Paralysis/Shock/Stun Water - Wet (resistance to fire & burn [removed by fire as well], weak to thunder/lightning/ice & paralysis/shock/stun/freeze/frozen) Earth - Petrify/Stone Wind - Confusion/Slow/AGL Debuff Holy/Light - Blind/Instant Death to Undead Dark/Darkness - Blind/Instant Death Its not. The editor is extremely limited, especially Battle Events. Besides, by nature, a check would have to be performed to see if damage was caused by a physical attack. The only real way to even check for that is through a script call, which isn't easily done in battle. Nothing short of a plugin which applies advanced effects to states & checks for actions in battle can accomplish this.

    Booster Pack & Card Icons

    I've updated the icons so there's more now. A full set of 32 Booster Pack icons & some have a gradient added so now there's an actual Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum packs, Emerald/Jade, Sapphire/Cobalt & Ruby packs, and the Rainbow Pack has been updated to look better. The only thing I couldn't do was add a gradient effect for the cards themselves, but oh well!
