      Looks rad!

      How'd you get the camera to move? I tried getting a zoom effect a few years ago; did not work in the slightest 😄

      As long as you enjoy what you're doing anyways; You always did have a gift for this.

      Hiii Tarq! :3 I am doing okay, though I am feeling more and more lazy and sleepy lately... Oh well.


      I haven't heard a peep out of loney in ages.

      Thanks! 😁

      That one is not being made in RPG Maker, so I'm not sure if I can say anything relevant regarding this. 😛 There simply is an invisible camera object, that follows the character in a specific way. The screen is focused on the camera position and that's pretty much it I suppose. Some code and maths to update the view.


      Thank you; I wish I also had more free time, heh.


      How about you? Are you going to touch some old stuff? start new? or just came by to say hi? 😁

  4. Been trying to make the last strike of a skirmish more dynamic, but,well:

    Any thoughts?

    1. Kayzee


      I wonder if there is a way to make a sound echo?

    2. Tarq


      So, this version is slightly more coherent, but still bland. (You'll have to excuse the fps, laptop isnt strong enough for RM and screencaps).



  5. Actually opened RM and did a little work on Sovereignty today. Determined to push through this last leg and finish this.

      Noice! Keep it up then! ^_^

    Sovereignty: TCG

    The AI is now seven cards smarter and finally has a full deck of 30 to play with so I thought it worthwhile to provide a new build. I doubt I'll provide another now until I've given every NPC a personalised deck (which could take a while). In other news, free card Wednesdays is now a thing. Just pop along to the shop on that day for a booster of your choice. And then, just to flesh out this post a bit, here's the title screen and trailer I made recently Title: Trailer: If you want to give it a go then here's the new link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jrzc6tjjwhxe63b/Sovereignty V5.2.2.exe?dl=0
  7. Trailers are a lot of work:

      Shit man, looks absolutely awesome though.
      I did not expect to see this ever getting even this far. Supremely legit.

    2. Tarq


      Thanks dude. Always nice to hear a kind word :)

  8. Made a title screen after all this time: hZRgP8a.png

    Sovereignty: TCG

    Time for another update by my reckoning. (Its a touch slimmer this time around as I was a little unwell for a couple of weeks.) First things first. Here's the new link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qk34qrdvdmfsrvl/Sovereignty V5.2.1.exe?dl=0 So, my favourite thing with this update is the basic time/day system I put together. It gives the player a slight suggestion of progression and allows me to make a few time-based events like weekly tournaments and card giveaways. You can see the first system in place actually; that card with a name next to it is a targetted skirmish and you get double moneys for winning in time The enemy AI can play three more cards; Two Counter cards and a Battlefield card. I'll probably start work on customizing the enemy decks/AIs for the next updateso it should be actually fun to play pretty soon. There's also that new shop I linked a vid for a while back: There's a bit more to this update in this second spoiler. I've wrote it a few times now and for some reason the unspoiler after the YT link just...isn't working?

  11. Pretty much how I spent the weekend:

      Shopkeeper Carpets? Nice! :D 


      Also there's a typo "pahse" at 0:11. :P 

    2. Tarq


      Oh no. Cannot unsee carpets.

    3. Rezanta


      Lol Riki at it again.

  12. And with the latest build out I think I'm due a couple of days reprieve

    (or at least the pleasant thought of one).

    Sovereignty: TCG

    I wanted to make the game a little more UX-friendly this time around so here's a list of some of the changes in that regard: There's new cards ofc. Not just those Battlefield cards above but also Counter cards. Counter cards work like Command cards but can only be played in response to something your opponent plays (dw, the game prompts you when its okay to play them). All the new cards are available for free by going to the card shop (...the, uh, person(?) whose face is a card on the overworld). The really big news though is that the game is now BUG FREE!!! Okay, not quite. But all the problems that caused it to crash or sieze up during skirmishes have been solved thanks to some rejigging of the base systems while I was implementing the Counter cards. There's still some minor stuff with certain cards but I'd be surprised if anyone ran into anything serious this time. What's that? A link, you say? Well. Alright. Just this once: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h7kvn01eui6bcqe/Sovereignty V.5.1.exe?dl=0 Don't tell your mother.
  14. @TheoAllen made a really cool transition tutorial over on the other forums. You can check it out here: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/ace-how-to-make-evented-transition-effect.93025/

    1. Kayzee


      Hmmmm, you know I tend to use transitions a ton for various things (mostly as a replacement for normal fades) but I don't know if I ever had a need to use it during events like this. One trick I did do with it though was use Graphics.freeze in an event before a battle so I could clear pictures without updating the screen. That might be a handy trick for people who want to display pictures momentarily before a battle. I believe Graphics.freeze doesn't update anything if the graphics are already frozen.

      Oooh... Interesting. I'll look into that in the future.

    Sovereignty: TCG

    Just dropping by to say Sovereignty now has over 100 cards! (read: 101) I'm not providing a new build today as the new cards need more work done but I will show the new card type I mentioned in the last update. Battlefield cards! ...yes.Trow cards. Can't count to trow yet? GitGud. (I dont have a background for this one yet) Each of these cards make some slight changes how the game is played and can have a significant impact on playstyle/deckbuilding. The change in background image was just for funsies . I also have plans for another new card type that is going to do way more to up the strategy and dynamics but that is going to require some big changes to the base systems which I'm not willing to mess around with for, jeez, at least another week :3 Man, how far this has come since the first prototype.
