  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. > 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.

  4. 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.

      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...

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. 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


  10. can't believe I hated emil tales of symphonia when I was 15. smfh

    1. PhoenixSoul


      Not sure what that is, but an epiphany is an epiphany.

  11. (has a mental breakdown) ok time to project this onto my characters 

    1. PhoenixSoul


      No better time, really.

    2. Kayzee


      Why not? Most of fiction is people projecting their issues after all!

  12. just a passing idea, but how would y'all use singing as a battle mechanic?

    1. Show previous comments  4 more
    2. Kayzee


      I always find those kind of passive battlefield effects rather interesting, especially where the battle field it's self has states of sort that change how battle works for everyone and can be harnessed by with some strategy. A bit like the weather effects in the Pokemon games.


      Like maybe there is a song that fills the battlefield with holy light, which may heal most living things but hurts undead and/or demons? Both allies and enemies would be effected, but most of the time those types of creatures are enemies. Also there could be a reverse version some enemies could use that fills the battlefeild with darkness that heals undead and demons but hurts most everyone else.


      Another example might be a version of the Bard's 'counterspell' ability from D&D or maybe more like a multiturn Runic from FFVI in the form of a song. Basically something that prevents spells from working when it's sung, but again effects everybody. There probobly should be a way to tell a bard-type to stop signing on their turn or play a new song.


      Maybe also so you don't end up switching songs every round, they could start out not that powerful but get stronger the more rounds you keep singing? I donno.


      If there can be only one effect on the whole battlefield that might also mean enemy bards can sort of block yours and visa versa.

    3. PhoenixSoul


      (what I saw at first glance)


      just a passing idea, but how would y'all see singing as a battle mechanic?


      Yeah, I'd go with a Final Fantasy type thing where once in song, the battler cannot do anything else.

      @PhoenixSoul (I edited it bc I felt the word choice made it confusing :V)

  13. question for artists: how would you recommend scaling down character portraits? and what resolution are they originally when you draw them?

  14. just in case I give up tryna figure it out: vx ace users what are some simpler alternatives to theo's battle system you guys recommend? thanks!!

    1. Holder


      I've got a list of Animated battle scripts in my topic for Animated Battler resources.

    2. PhoenixSoul


      I have the simple side view battle system; not using it for my current project but it is a good one.

    3. kurin


      @Holder just gonna bookmark every single script you linked in that thread because this is a HUGE savior
