  1. toastytime and theunpropro’s videos are saving my ass

    now if only I actually opened up rpg maker and worked 

  2. I’m conflicted about what engine to use. do people still use vx ace? or is everyone moving to mv (or whatever the new one is)

    I have vxa and mv, but I GREATLY prefer vx ace. I just can’t stand how...blocky...and overly colorful the new programs are.

      Welcome to the "VX Ace club," a phrase I use to refer to people who firmly stick to VX Ace! I own the licenses for both MV and MZ, but I deliberately use VX Ace for all my projects. I can go on about in paragraphs of writing on why VX Ace is so much "better" than MV and MZ in many ways. I did mention a bit about my preferences in this post though. Of course if a person's goals are different, MV or MZ might be the "better" engine, but at least for me, the pros of VX Ace far outweighs the cons, while the cons of MV and MZ far outweighs the pros.

      ace master race

      You know what, I extremely felt the same. I prefer VXA over newer engines.

  3. sooo when you guys start a new rpg maker project, what’s the first thing you focus on? assets, programming, or story?

    1. PhoenixSoul


      All three, but usually I have story element/game idea in mind beforehand.

    2. Kayzee


      Programming for me I guess. :3

  4. - listens to "eyes on me"

    - remembers one of my characters is a singer


    1. PhoenixSoul


      ♫Come on, baby, won't you show me what you got, yeah; I want your salvation, whoa-oh-oh...♫

  5. wait there's a new rpg maker


    it's the same thing just with like. two new minor features lmao

    totally worth $70 amirite 

    1. PhoenixSoul


      Only one way to know for certain. As is, it would be the only RM engine I can't use...

    2. kurin


      @PhoenixSoul vx ace can be pried from my cold dead hands, mv already bugs me because the assets all just look. CLUNKY. and it feels way more tedious to add scripts ("pLuG-iNs") imho

    3. PhoenixSoul


      I think that some of the MV assets are decent, namely the angled faces from the generator parts, as well as some of the sprite parts like the hair and certain other bits.

      That said, I only ever use the opinions of others as guiding points.

      A good parent is a pillar of guidance and nothing more...

  6. you ever just catch yourself speaking dialogue aloud but never actually write it

    1. PhoenixSoul


      Almost daily, and sometimes more than once in a day.

    2. Kayzee


      Sometimes I think. Most of the time I speak monologue aloud instead though. :P

  7. right ok I don't care I'm making that pride drawing I'll jUST SOMEHOW INCLUDE THE CHARACTERS' NAMES

    1. PhoenixSoul


      Hop to it, Frogger. lolz

  8. > haven't drawn or posted any official concepts for my game characters

    > wanted to post a pride month drawing for said characters after I introduced them

    > pride month ends next week


    1. PhoenixSoul


      Mm-hmm. I hear that.

  9. I've listened to 'lifelight' so many times while writing my game that I don't even associate it with smash bros anymore. it's my game's theme now lol

      In essence, a MIDI file is one large piano roll keyboard with note annotations.

      Try loading any of the MIDI files from any song for FoF/Phase Shift/Clone Hero, and feast your eyes on all the piano roll notes for every single instrument part charted, including vocals, drums and dance. It doesn't seem to load in vocal harmonies or two-handed/pro keys though...

      Yeah, I know. No one plays rhythm games anymore. It's just an old, dead fad, right? lolz

    3. Kayzee


      I'm not sure... Sure rhythm games are an old dead fad, but fads are a bit like the great old ones. They rarely truly die, just wait for the time when the stars are right to raise from their slumber and spread madness over the world once more. It's the way fads tend to be. Even those fads that seem to linger on as undead abominations after all the life and soul has been sucked out of them until they are pale shadows of what they once were seem to be able to spring back to life if the conditions are right.

    4. PhoenixSoul


      Hence, Clone Hero's current popularity.
      Actually, Indie Gaming in general is upticking in popularity, what with 'games as a service' being forced on the sycophants...by the sycophants...

  10. when you wanna make an animatic of your characters singing "no homo" but you realize you actually gotta draw and introduce em first ._.

    1. Kayzee


      What about when you wanna make an animatic of your characters singing "no homo" but you realize they actually homo?

    2. kurin


      @Kayzee oh, my characters are 100% homo >:DDD

    3. UncannyBoots


      "oh, my characters are 100% homo >:DDD"

      No homo.

      Phew, saved you.

  11. what if I just summed up my characters in memes

  12. one of my characters' voice claims is vinny vinesauce, which makes writing serious scenes for him unbelievably awkward because I just keep imagining him making the most inhuman noises.

  13. you'd think I would've been using all this quarantine time to continue writing

    or finalizing character designs

    or anything productive






    yeah maybe in some other timeline I would have lol

      @PhoenixSoul @Kayzee oh true? I thought that was a term everyone knew :0

      executive functioning is essentially- the cogs in your brain. you know how when you think "I wanna do this today" and you do it? that's executive functioning.

      executive dysfunction is when you think "I wanna do this today", but you're still glued to the spot you're currently in. your brain, nerves, everything is saying "IF YOU WANNA DO THE THING DO IT NOW" but you're still sitting there. not because laziness or "not really wanting to do that", but because- well- that one cog in your brain that actually gets you up to do something just isn't working, no matter how much you really want to stop sitting there doing nothing. it can mess up your time management, planning, problem-solving, etc. and it's prevalent in people with mental disorders like autism or adhd. (I'm autistic fyi)


      so most days, I think to myself "I wanna draw/write/be productive", but end up doing nothing but watch youtube videos or lurk on social media because that specific function? doesn't work. not to say it NEVER works, but I really have to push myself to plug in my tablet or pull up google docs if I actually wanna get any work done.

    3. Kayzee


      Yeah, that's what I thought. I have basically the same problem. I have been diagnosed with aspergers and adhd. But honestly? I am not sure if being diagnosed as such is really that informative or helpful. It seems like it's a bunch of symptoms that no one really understands thrown together in a box. Some I have, some I don't. I am not saying it can't be a useful tool to get help, but I wonder sometimes if thinking of these types of problems as 'mental disorders' is misdirecting people. It really doesn't matter, it's a problem regardless.


      When it comes to not doing things, I might have a broken brain cog, or I might just be lazy, or I might just not want to do things as much as I think I do. But what I suspect more then anything else is that all three are true. I suspect that the actual problem with my brain is that I just don't get the kind of endorphin rush that normal people get for doing things. I just don't find things as rewarding. As a consequence I don't really want to do things, even if i do (yes, you can in fact want and not want something at the same time). And because of that I become incredibly lazy which causes me to want to do things even less.


      Here is the interesting thing though: I don't think this behavior pattern is actually universally bad. If we consider the opposite scenario, it's easy to see how someone might be caught up in having too much of an endorphin rush, causing them to because impulsive and/or have an addictive personality. It seems to me like more and more 'normal' people are being preyed on by people who exploit human psychology. Is some of this in fact an adaption created in response? Who knows? But either way, it can get really annoying.

      I can safely say I have the same executive dysfunction issues, though they're triggered externally, for the most part (meaning that it's other people spreading me thin and stressing me out).

  14. everyone: don't you think you're a little too attached to dezel from tales of zestiria

    me, halfway done making his hat in animal crossing: no clue what you're talking about

      what the fresh hell happened here

    3. PhoenixSoul


      I don't judge what characters people like; I'm not some doting, admiring and ANNOYING AS FUCK FANBITCH. lmao
      (a battle of context versus wording is what happened)

    4. Kayzee


      But half of a language is context. If you aren't using English in the context of English, you aren't really using English. You are using a zombified husk of English that might use the same words but has none of the soul. Same with any other language too. Also: English is an odd language sure, but language in general is pretty odd.


      Also: @kurin What's that look for? Can't two girls just be complete rambling lunatics sometimes? :3
