  1. Tales of Eadris

  2. Upscale all graphics

    Yanfly's Scale Sprites plugin might help you. I use it and it works well.
  3. Just a heads up to anyone interested;

    MV is having a big sale on Steam for anyone wanting to get MV or any of it's DLC.

     

    I've already added a bunch to my cart for tomoro's payday :P

    1. PhoenixSoul

      Yup, got the email already.

      I could even buy one of two of the items with my very limited wallet balance...

       

      I intend to get MV, when I am able. Gonna need it (apparently), if I wish to legitimately use the angled faces I made in GCH: PE...

  4. Sovereignty: TCG

    I had a suspicion Riki had a hand in helping with that menu. The amount of purple gave it away hehe. The card image behind the trading screen could maybe be transparent a little. Reading the card names over them is a little bothering since the text is so thin and on a bold background. This is a personal opinion however. Overall, this looks really good so far. I'm off work tomorrow, so I'll be sure to check out your updated version. It's been a long time since I played an VX/ACE game
  5. Okay, so... I made a "Plugins Master List" for the forums a while back, but how useful would a similar "Resource Master List" work for everyone? 

     

    Is it worth the time and effort to do it?

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I'd just go for it, to be honest; there's a lot that could be beneficial from having one of these.

      I think master lists are great.

      I was working on Resource Master List a while ago, but I think it didn't perform well, so I eventually moved that to trash. :P

       

      Either way, if you want,  go for it! Members seem to have some nice usage of these. :) 

  6. Non-Commercial donations

    It's hard to say exactly though as each resource maker is different. Some don't care as much as others, so always safe to look into it. If you can't find anything related to any terms, then it should be fine to use them though as long as you credit. Could always try contact the artist if their on a forum or something to be safe.
  7. Non-Commercial donations

    @Gun2SV Yep, any non-commercial resources are free to you as long as you follow there terms and conditions. @Traverse I'll write it this way then; If you take money for a specific game that is using the non-commercial resources, such as kickstarter or gofundme, then it's considered commercial since your getting revenue from people for that games development. If you take money for yourself, or for your personal being and/or team/group then you are allowed to take money as you, yourself are being paid/donated to. This is more of a support fund for the developer themself and can't be called out if they receive money for themselves/the team since it's not directly supporting that one particular game. I suppose you can just claim donations as a "your helping me make a game in general" instead of "your helping make this particular game". Honestly, I think most creators care mainly about you selling games rather than taking support money so long as the money is invested in the project and not for yourself. But yea, Traverse is right. It comes down mainly to how you write and promote yourself. Take donations as a developer and you should be safe.
  8. Non-Commercial donations

    Donations are still classified as "commercial" since you are still receiving money in support of a game that uses these resources. Whether the game itself is free to play, the concept of you are still receiving money in some way for a project using the materials still puts it in the same category. Also, you say you'll release the game for free after receiving these donations - but that's just the reassurance of a stranger wanting our money. For all we know, you can stick a price tag on the game, or even just run off with donations in the end - but this is a different topic. Just be aware of this when setting up or asking for permissions. However, due to this not officially being a commercial game (commercial being that you are selling a game), depending on some resource makers, you can try and ask them individually for permissions. I know alot of makers are more concerned about there resources being in one of those many, many steam games that gives RPGM and other engines bad reputations so asking them for a donation/kickstarter exception in exchange for a free game release might work - but not always. I strongly suggest you don't use the non-commercial resources in your project until you get permissions to prevent any problems and back lash in future.
  9. When the kitten bites me, he immediately licks the wound and looks at me apologetically.

     

    His older brother bites me and he refuses to let go, runs away in a huff and looks at me as if I offended his ancestors.

     

    The kittens the ash-hole in this household though...

      The kitten attacked me yesterday and drew blood on my wrist.

      The same kitten is lying in my housecoat right now, stealing my warmth and occasionally punching me when he stretches.

       

      I think I'd prefer claws and teeth over beaks though. I've never been pecked, and I intend to keep it that way xD

      Cats are waaay more entertaining. Birds just chill in their cage all the time cuz if they get out, all hell will break loose, and they'll probably fly into a mirror and kill themselves. I prefer pets that can run and jump around even if that means I have to bleed on occasion.

      I've lived with cats long enough to know they are adorable, fickle jerks.

    I personally think Grace suits the "angry" eyes alot better than the "shocked" ones so glad to see you changed them back I don't remember the drity blonde/brunettes names (The one thats based on you if I remember correctly?) but I love her coat and hair. I just noticed the hair changes too. Was so focused on the eyes in the last image that I totally overlooked Graces hair change. I like it - it's less flat/circular. Love the detailing on the cactus-cop's body. The shading looks so well blended there. Will we get to see a couple of the animated sprites in the future? I'm interested in seeing how you animate you style of sprite

    No worries. I thought it was a copy/flip situation. I assumed they were the same character, just the ears were a bit confusing (wasn't sure if the same person of if it was another cat - a twin maybe - type thing haha) No worries. I like the shading and outlining done. I gotta admit though - I'm terrified of the duck after that animation.

    Some minor critique, ignore if you don't like that stuff~ The contrast looks nice~ The battle animation is pretty cool. Sleek, fast and smooth
  13. Had to factory reboot my entire PC but hey, MV's working again.

     

    No clue why it broke though...

      I never thought of that, however having to keep switching accounts to use it would've been a mess - especially since all my resources wee on my main account xD

       

      I think the the problem was a missing file actually. When I rebooted and MV done it's "first time" install, a program name popped up that seemed familiar (I had it installed but don't remember recently seeing it in my control panel) so I think that might've been the problem. On that note though, I reinstalled MV/Steam so many times that I felt I should've gotten a prompt telling me that program was missing.

       

      Regardless, everythings fixed now and now I have a "clean" running PC xD

      Now to remember what programs I need back on it o.o

      Should of done a backup first...

       

      Next time, my recommendation is to insert the Windows OS disk and do a reinstall using the disk. It will NOT erase your HDD. It will reinstall just the core files.

      No, no, that would be just to determine if the problem was in some user files, such as Appdata folder etc. etc., or if it was something in PC (registry entries, for example). Besides, even if, then you could just make a new user and migrate there. :P

      Also I noticed CCleaner being mentioned in the previous status update - too bad I didn't notice that before - CCleaner does not clean registry entries perfectly. It's always worth to check them yourself if you know what kind of stuff you'd be looking for- in your case, you'd know, that you're looking for RM / MV / Enterbrain. Ace has some entries there, such as recently opened project, latest search in scripts, projects directory etc. etc.. When reinstalling software because of bugs or something (uninstalling in general), always make sure, that the registry entries as well as files in Appdata folder (and some other directories) are cleaned. Otherwise some unwanted settings may be left. It's silly how easy Windows gets flooded with garbage files, that aren't so easy to catch and remove.

      Why I said CCleaner isn't 100% effective? My sister caught an unwanted browser extension, that was throwing nasty ads. She uninstalled the infected browser, but the browser was being reinstalled back all by itself, with that infection (such scary). CCleaner did not help (okay, I know it's a task for antiviruses, but these won't always catch these either), even though it removed something related to it. She asked me to remove that manually- turns out there was tons of crap thrown all over the place in registry entries (and not only...), that were stored mainly in Microsoft Edge- then spread to the browser. I removed all entries I found and everything seems to be back to normal.

       

      Either way, I believe, that completely cleaning all the MV files should help, but it's too late for this now. :P

    I normally do, but for these I didn't. Only reference was an old drawing I made of the characters with these weapons, and those weren't referenced either xD I need to study some weapons and blades, especially their terminology so I can draw them more accurately. These are rather bright which ruins the "blade" though >.< Need to study handles and hilts too. These are too simple
  15. pixel art Amy's Artwork

    Aww, no more anger in the world. Though some look more shocked now haha. Like Grace(?) looks more shocked now. Her "nagry" sprite looked more "annoyedly cool" xD On that though, I'm surpsingly happy seeing this. Seeing the left and right sprites and seeing you actually fix them so their not just flips makes me happy. Love the attention to detail~ Also really like the harpy. Her colours just work to nicely together. Her hands can;t be easy to use though o.o
