    reCreations

    I've been coding in RM for a while now, specifically MV. I've gotten pretty good at it, too XD As time went on, the things I was coding changed, from things that were trivial and honestly didn't need to be coded, into things that were a bit smarter, more focused. One of the earliest examples was a Utility script. It had silly little shortcut calls for things like Game Variables and Game Switches. It also had an awful implementation of a well intentioned idea - saved Show Picture Settings. I found the Show Picture script call to be quite argument heavy, and Move Picture was no less so. I wanted to only supply the arguments I was changing for the Move Picture command. The idea was great, implementation was a JOKE! Nowadays, I do much better. I follow conventions, I comment, I plan, I do a lot that I should do. However, with coding, you're always learning. You always find something new, or pick up a new trick, or realize you've been doing something wrong, etc. Refactoring is a huge......factor, in scripting. Doing it too often could actually make compatibility nightmares and headaches where they don't need to be. Right now, I'm actually going through a lot of old plugins, and rewriting them completely with either the same name, or a new one, prefixed with 're' reAction is my redo of my animation script rEvent is my redo of my event copier/spawner reTool is my most current utility script reStorage is my redo of an old storage system All of them except reStorage are complete. I also remade my image cache, calling it 'reCache', but even since then, I've remade it again! Right now, though, it's fantastic. So then, for this blog entry, that's what I've been doin :) Time for sleep
  2. I have a plan to resurrect this site to it's heyday traffic. It involves baking cookies and using a fan to blow the cookie air toward people. It'll draw them in, we trap em, blah blah you get it.

      Now I just really want cookies. Forget all those other people, if they join there'll just be less cookies. Am I right?

      Yay for cookies!

      I just want some chocolate...whatever.

       

  3. Making a sexy new plugin, my first ever public one. I never do public plugins, for a lot of reasons, but.....eh, I wanna do at least one, and so it's gotta be a big one!
    MV users will be the only beneficiaries, but maybe when I finally relearn Ruby (it's been years) I'll do it for ACE as well

      Hehe, I theirs is going to be like my script and support both single instance and multi instance. I use the same script for both universal storage and for opening individual chest events, it's just a matter of telling the script what list of items to use.

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      It allows for any number of storage containers to be created, and they can be called anywhere, as part of an event. There are plugin commands and script calls, of course, but the plugin parameters allow for tons of organized presets. I want it to look and feel different in every game, if the User wishes. Right now you can set the type of a container to All, Items, Weapons, Armor or Custom. You can create Custom Types in the parameters, as well.  Each container you create can actually have a completely different 'menu'. It's super customizable, but also very easy to use if you just want a storage plugin

      There there... No need to be embarrassed and cover it up like that. I understand. :3

      Hehe... Kidding! I figured you were being silly. You tend to do that after all. But you see, acting sincere to seemingly silly posts can be pretty silly it's self! Plus jokes are often more then just jokes. If you really do have a problem, it's nice to be taken sincerely isn't it? :3

      @Kayzee at least you never change

      I have never really been given a reason to! I like the way I am! :3

  5. Back your project up. If you don't back your project up, I'm gonna come to your home and spin kick you. Then take your project and delete it.

      I just wouldn't use the cloud as my primary backup. Secondary back up though? Yeah, that's fine. I mean, you can't completely trust any backup. I still say local physical backups are better though, just because 'the cloud' isn't really mine and I have no idea where the data actually is or who might access it.

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      Nah I'll never consider the cloud to be my primary backup, for the same reasons. Personally I like to have a thumb drive as my primary backup, I prefer that my primary spends 99.9% of the time not plugged in, and I only ever use thumbs for backing things up or transferring them, anyway

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I agree! It's better if your primary back up isn't hooked up to a live computer at all most of the time! Less things will go wrong that way.

  6. Just a friendly reminder to back up your projects!

     

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe... Believe me I have learned to back up stuff. :3

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yup. I wish I had the luxury.
      Also, lolz that flip-flop song...

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      Yeah the joke's on me. I've now been thinking of this song for the past 24 hours XD

  7. You know, our interaction lately reminds me of a song! You might not think it makes sense for me to like that song, but it's so catchy! :3

      Gr8 b8! I r8 8/8! :3 But seriously how could I resist?

       

      I think most of my arguments have just been with the same person though. XD

       

      Also,

      Yeah he can telekineticly throw things around in some of the spin offs and the GBA remake. Also yeah they were exactly there and they were totally the double dragon twins. Fun fact: There are lots and lots of Double Dragon cameos in River City Girls too. They are basically now officially set in the same universe.

       

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      Yeah from my understanding, some of the people that worked on the original Renegade game (I did know about that one) actually went off and made Double Dragon. They actually even kind of 'borrowed' the basic plot from Renegade for DD and DD2<---best

       

      I still turn on DD2 at least twice a year and beat it. Flying knees from stage 1 till the end :D 

      I also played DD4 a few years ago when it came out. I didn't love it, but I was so happy to have another, and so happy the went with the NES port style. They even emulated the screen tearing a sprite-limit flickering!!

      I beat it once and I think I'm fine with that, for life lol. That game was tough

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, So you know Renegade was actually the first Kunio-kun game in Japan too? They made a loooot of changes to it in the translation, so I am not sure how much of the plot is even left in the US version. On the other hand they both still start with someone getting beat up so...

    Hi everyone

    Welcome @MASTER7ZERO7, have fun browsing around and learning here! Also, your English is perfect

    Wish granted. You're life remains exactly as it is I wish that the McRib was available year-round.

    Hello Everyone!

    @hello PapaDragon, I'm cheating on RPGMakerWeb, as well! RMW is great and everything, but I feel like RMC really gets me, and cares about what I want. LIke when RMW and I first met. I'm gonna tell RMW I just...I need time. Anyway, have fun!
  11. FTR, I said the page is up; the demo itself is not ready yet, lolz
    (the page is also not public either)

    Got more to do before the demo goes live...

    1. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      Ahh, my mistake. Well look, now you're making me look like a fool! Hurry up and get that demo posted or everyone's gonna know I'm full of it!

      Lol I do hope to see your demo, soon though. One day I'll stop ditching projects or getting side tracked making plugins and actually post a demo of my own. Someday...

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      It'll be up by the end of the month. You can take that to the Pass Line (or the Don't Pass Line), lol

  12. Arrpeegeemaker

    Too much info

    Look, I think we can all agree: - @Kayzee can be a little abrasive all the time sometimes - @That One NPC took a wrong left turn, and like a proud father didn't want to stop and ask for directions - @Rikifive is a whimsical equine creature who was just trying to help - @PhoenixSoul just wants people to know their demo is up on itch.io, and that it's ok to go try it out - @Lord Vectra is dark and mysterious, and apparently good with complex events - @Arrpeegeemaker is a kitty cat inside of a man's body operating him with controls - 5th Avenue Bars are way better than Butterfingers - Instant Ramen is better when you boil the water separately instead of pouring water in with the soup and microwaving it - Every Cable TV station doesn't need their own streaming service - You should be allowed to hit your kids - I should be allowed to hit your kids - @Doomboxx1134 is probably very confused right now
  13. To all you people on here who've been saying I'm really a squirrel bestowed with the gift of human intellect inside of a remarkably attractive man-robot, operating him with controls, that is false, it's fake news, it's violent and it hurts my feelings. I'm a kitty cat bestowed with the gift of human intellect inside of a remarkably attractive man-robot, operating him with controls.

      I bet the FFVII Remake is gonna be disappointing actually. The original FFVII is a special kind of insane that only 90s Squaresoft seemed able to produce. I think they play it too safe nowadays to really pull off what made FFVII truly great. All I know is, they better not have cut the part where Cloud crossdresses. :P

    3. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      I actually think they waited just the right amount of time, to where a lot of us stopped craving the remake so hard. Now if it's a disappointment, I won't feel as let down

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      If they cut that part out, it would basically kill a core point of the story.
      (addendum)
      It is likely that the hot tub scene will have changes made if it isn't eliminated entirely. I say it needs more to it because the original is pretty vague.

  14. Arrpeegeemaker

    Too much info

    I like backstory, but I prefer to have to go the extra mile to get all of it, in most games. I'm ok with a game's presented story only being 20-30% of the material. Like other users here have said, it helps the bit you're presented with feel more real. There's a balance, of course, between talking about things like they exist, and attempting to 'naturally' present players with info. The former can be confusing, an make you think you've missed something. The latter can come off as super contrived, especially in dialogue. As far as the stuff OP mentioned, with histories, diseases, etc, I would only think that was overkill if I had no way of avoiding it all just to play the main game. Like I said, I personally like to go looking for more story details, when I'm ready and if I feel like it.
