  1. I wonder how many people would take part if I did another contest. Hmmmm....

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      I would. Been in a slump lately with RPGM so it would be something new~

  2. Is there a feature to use BBCode during forum posts? Just tried editing my resource thread and had alot of problems with spoiler tags being a nuisance and couldn't find a raw format version to edit it.

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      No worries Riki :) I knew there was an issue a while back, but wasn't sure if anything changed around it. I tried the preview feature to see if they worked but it all came up as a single thing (as if the spoiler tags were open and everything was visible).

       

      I only use them for images since they take up so much space. I'll try be careful with them then :)

       

      Didn't want to make a new topic to ask just a silly question so sorry if this seemed rather rude Riki >.<

  4. A Windows update literally broke my computer... After a very complicated case of trying to access files I had to reboot the entire PC.

     

    I rebooted with the "keep files" option, and now my PC is fixed and actually usable, the reboot in fact did not keep my files... I've lost everything, and I had no chance to back them up since the update was mandatory and just happened...

     

    It was also a 6 hour update -.-

     

    Goodbye game progression~

    Goodbye drawings I never got to upload or finish~

    Goodbye game saves~

     

    I'm very salty right now...............

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      I'm more upset about the drawing stuff tbh. Alot of concepts, custom tiles and a bunch of sprite editing was lost. I never backed it up either since there was no hint to an update the night before.

      I agree with Riki, I've not had a problem (not since the first verification reboot I had to do since I first 'upgraded') so this took me by surprise - even more so when I literally couldn't do anything. Even the reboot took alot of fiddling since I couldn't access anything on my PC.

       

      I don't buy anything from Microsoft so they don''t get my money anyway lol. I'm more concerned about the fact I rebooted everything but now that my PC is wiped clean, my Disk Space is apparently full. No clue whats happened but I'm sure it wasn't full beforehand.

       

      Lesson is; back up your stuff. Looking at an empty MV project is depressing haha.

  5. - Sister buys a cinnamon scented candle melt/freshner.

    - Tells her I'm allergic to cinnamon so she can only use it in her bedroom with her door closed.

    - Comes home from work, smells cinnamon, sister says "I forgot".

     

    So now my throat hurts, It's hard to breathe and my sister just sits casually in her room like "oopsies".

     

    This is why I'm not a family person.

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      @PhoenixSoul I wouldn't say she did it intentionally, but she's rather ignorant so I believer her when she "forgot". In other words, she never paid attention when i told her in the first place.

       

      Thankfully I'm not deadly allergic but it does cause alot of discomfort.

       

      @Rikifive Lucky~ I've got two allergies, but the harmful one I don't even need.  Theres an ingredient in travel sickness tablets that make me swell up and my whole body numb. That was a fun experience as a kid lol.

  6. My brother got a job not so long ago and the first thing he aims for is a new PC, because his current one is 'meh'. :P

    That would require waiting months though, so I asked him if he'd like me to buy one for him, to which he agreed. I just ordered his PC right now; he'll eventually give me bits back at some point in the future.

    With that being said... I assume gaming together will get more intense. 🎉

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Ah, hope it works out well for you both Riki.

      A gaming PC is on my wishlist, but we're saving up to buy a house so I'll have to live my gaming life through your brother now~

      I was actually trying to make a cookie icon, but it looked like poop so I didn't want to give you a poop cookie...

  8. In the absence of Seriel, I'm considering taking up the task to host something similar to IiaW.

    Essentially a Game Jam.

     

    So I know for reference though, how many people would actually be interested in participating (no judges, actual contestants).

     

    We always have alot of people drop out, so unless a fair few is interested, I'm not sure whether to actually make one or not. And what would be better for a time frame? 

    A week or a weekend?

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      There's no reason you can't make one. Go for it ;P

      This was more of a "hey, it's quiet so lets get everyone together" thing. Doesn't have to be me that hosts it~

  9. I honestly feel bad for @Rikifive; I am flabbergasted at how something that simple now has been wrenched what, four times now!? 

     

    Certainly takes the fun out of it... 

    It's even less fun than the microtransaction happy Candy Crush. 

     

    Actually, I do like that game, but forcing the player to use powerups that one has to either buy or cheat to get is some really f*cked up garbage. 

     

    In some levels, if you don't have powerups, you're so far up garbage pass without a shovel... 

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      @Chaosian pssh, I died years ago when I became this thing known as an "adult".

      Agreed though. I hardly touch RPGM anymore, but it's a habit to check back here often (even if its lurking),

       

      More accurately, I think Riki's the only "active" mod. Atleast from what I see nowadays. Hope everyones doing good though.

      Everyone who was active that got promoted to mod/admin became inactive (except Riki. He's crazy though) so that should tell you the work load they have lol.

       

      There behind-the-scenes hard work is why it's nice to see members help each other out and not fight. it helps the mods and builds a friendly community~

  11. Been wanting to get back into game making but can't seem to get into it. I enjoy everything except the actual game-making (events and dialogue, basically).

     

    Not sure how to get around this sadly. Maybe it's time for another IiaW type thing :P

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      I've considered different genres actually. Even tried one of typical horror games RPGM's known for. I sort of enjoyed the horrory one for fun, but never actually worked on a story. 

       

      I've been thinking about trying short story writing. Writing isn't my strength, but it's something that needs improvement.

       

      I think I've been "avoiding" my game deving for a few years now and I think that habit has sunk inn, which sucks. On my next holiday, I'll take another shot at it. I've actually been thinking of that "Tarqeo" collab idea you had a while back Tarq. Something simplistic, yet creative sounds nice haha. If only we didn't have to be adults and work for a living xD

  12. Who thinks the MV RTP icons are bad? Is it bad if a proj uses them?

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      A small project would be fine using them, but a big game with alot of icon use will show alot of repetition.

       

      Would be good if you atleast tried editing the originals, if even just recolours. Could be used for rarity or for item type (battle, health, key, ect.).

       

      It's not bad to use them, but they don't offer much option by themselves.

      The level itself reminded me of the original Sonic's level "Marble Zone". Minus the annoying lava and more magical beam shooting.

      Now all we need is super anxiety driven drowning music and then we're good.

       

      Also just noticed. Near the end of the GIF, one of the stuck flies just "blasts off" into the sky, never to see seen again xD

      If this has controller support, then I'm totally gonna play this Riki.

      Reminds me of the old Sonic games (minus the anxiety of that drowning countdown).

  16. My computer says I have no internet access. I beg to differ, what are your thoughts on the subject?

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      I'm telling ya. You have a computer that is jelly of your interactions and wants to try and ban you from talking to other people. Be on the look out for any possible kidnapping signs and you should be safe~

       

      My phone does this sometimes - telling me theres no network - but I blame it on a slow reaction/lag on the phones wi-fi. Sometimes it picks up networks but is too slow to actually show it and lags behind on the visual side of things. 

      Or your network provider sucks. There's always that :P  (mines always cuts out when I decide to start watching series or play games coz Sky suck butt)

      My thoughts are, your computer is lonely and feels neglected and the fact it tells you that your internet is off is it feels "used" and just wants your love.

  18. Free trial of MV via Steam? Cool.

    Crashing upon startup?

    VERY VERY VERY BAD. NOT COOL.

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Pretty sure this is the exact problem I had before I rebooted my PC.

      I never did find the problem, but I think it was a missing file error. Never knew about that topic, but I use Windows 10 anyway.

       

      I think the missing file was;

      "Microsoft Visual C++" but I could be wrong.

       

      Hope you get it fixed though. The "help" I got on steam was useless xD

      In fact, where does it crash? On startup or during actual development?

      Did MV do a proper "first time installation" set up for you?

      I think there was an issue with a recent update being reverted back to an older version.

      Try changing your steam "beta" to 1.5.2 instead of 1.6 and see if that helps?

  21. 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...

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      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

  22. Had to factory reboot my entire PC but hey, MV's working again.

     

    No clue why it broke though...

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      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

       

      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

  23. Urgh, MV still doesn't open and I have no idea if it's a problem with the recent update or with my end. ACE is also not working by failing to load tilesets even when a new project is being made (it just doesn't load/make any projects), despite the files being there.

     

    2k3 and XP work though, so not sure what's happening. I've also reinstalled all the programs, as well as steam itself, and it still doesn't work :/

      I managed to get - more or less - get ACE to work. I can't make a new project. but I can open one in my "manage projects" section. Doesn't help that I don't really have anything on ACE to load xD

       

      On that note actually, I'm gonna try playing someones MV game actually. Not sure if that helps anything, but I wanna see if it runs atleast. 

       

      I'm off work next week so was looking forward to a productive week xD

      I use Windows 10, but I've used it since MV's release more or less.

      I've checked everything I can think off and alot of others are telling me to just wait for a 1.6 patch. That's 5 days so far it hasn't worked haha.

       

      The only actual feedback on the error I got was a troubleshoot telling me it's a compatibility error - but I've used MV since release on a Windows 10 PC with no problems up until now so I'm unsure how it's suddenly uncompatible with my version of Windows.

       

      I'm just grateful I didn't have alot of my game already developed otherwise I'd be a grumpy grump.

      I messed around with the "betas" after seeing some people mention it in the update topic. Doesn't seem to change anything for me unfortunately. I even went back to the first version which of course didn't work xD

       

      I checked the section and never saw my explicit problem. Only "this feature doesn't work" after the update (something about tilesets not working properly). I have however made a topic there in the tech support so hopefully something pops up. 

       

      Thanks Chaosian :)
