  1. 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. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      BBCode still works like it used to, though it is no longer *officially* supported, which means, that while some things will work, some may generate issues.

       

      With that being said, [ spoiler ] tags still work, but they are extremely buggy and I strongly advise to not use them at all. Doing so may wreck the whole post, by moving its contents all over the place.

       

      As of V4, all we have is the WYSIWYG editor, so we should be seeing how the post looks like before submitting, rather than converting the code while posting. Please use the spoiler button from the toolbar.

      FXMTxVn.png

       

      It will put a spoiler box in your post. If you want to wrap existing contents into a spoiler, highlight the part you want to hide and then click the spoiler button.

       

      Also this area seems like a better place for these: Forum Feedback and Support ;)

    2. 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 >.<

    3. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Yeah, these tags behave weirdly. If you want to hide the image, just click it to highlight it then click the spoiler button. ;) 

       

      Silly questions are also questions. It's also easier to come up with an answer for these. ^_^ Besides, your question isn't silly at all. I've been poked few times by members, who had their posts wrecked by BBCode, asking me to help with fixing these. 🙂 Either way, no worries. It's just nice to have these things mentioned/discussed in the feedback area, for potential future reference, even if that had to be pointed out over and over again.

  2. o.o

    Says i'm the only one online... yet the site suddenly got fixed. Spooky.

  3. I now realize the pain of that reboot. I've lost all my templates for RPGM... 

    Also GIMP's updated so now I'm super not used to it and everythings weird >.<

     

    Templates made me lazy so I forgot all the specific pixels for stuff now so now I need to go relearn that to make more templates.

    rip.

    1. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Oh I didn't know GIMP got updates - still using 2.8. :P It all looks cool, but I'm kinda afraid to reinstall it. :P 

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yeah, GIMP updated, but I think all the plugins don't work right for the new version so I am using 2.8 anyway. Keep in mind also that a lot of open source projects like GIMP don't always have higher versions that are linear upgrades. Sometimes the whole structure of the program can change from one major version to another.

  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...............

      I havn't found windows 10 to be that bad, but yeah. I always always end up holding off on major updates for a month or two because most are broken at the start. I get awfully tempted to switch to linux at times... with Wine and/or VirtualBox you can run windows programs like RPG Maker more or less fine anyway. But... I am lazy so... Still, I do back up my game like crazy just in case.

    4. Animebryan

      Windows 10 is a Spyware OS. It constantly scans ALL of your files & if it thinks you acquired a program or files illegally (read: pirated), then it can delete those programs & files WITHOUT your permission! It also sends constant data to Microsoft which is extremely shady & look how desperate Microsoft is a shoving a Win 10 upgrade down everybody's throat, even when nobody wants it. It also got rid of some files & inner works that stops some old programs & games from running too.

       

      I know how it feels to lose everything. I once downloaded a Win 7 driver for an XBone controller for my laptop (because Walmart just couldn't keep their XBox 360 controllers in stock), and apparently, it caused Win 7 to go into the Blue Light (read: Blue Screen of Death) & it took nearly a month working with a MS technician just to get my laptop working again, but at least I didn't lose any data. Right now though, my Laptop is out of commission again because it completely froze up over a video glitch & I couldn't control my temper, slamming the damn thing up & down until the screen was fucked & god knows what else.

  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.

      @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.

       

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I have some horrible allergies myself... Or maybe it's more like horrible hay fever? All I know is my nose is stuffy all the time and my eyes can get scratchy.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      @Takeo212 Still very callous of her. But ultimately, I hope she learned something.

      All allergies should be given serious consideration. I'm allergic to cigarette smoke, I cough as a response, and if I am eating or drinking when that happens, it leads to nothing good, and if I have prolonged exposure, I begin heaving and it has an effect on my cognitive functions, something the people I live with just tell me to 'quit bitching' about, like it's nothing. If it gets real bad, it makes my eyes itch to boot.

      Again, serious consideration. Your sis could learn from my on-paper parents' foolishness as that may one day very well be my end.

  6. Cookie for whoever knows what day today is :P

      Always good to have you around Takeo! :) 

  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?

      Get me a working computer, and you can absolutely count me in. 

       

      Since there is no RM port for Android, this is pretty much an absolute necessity... 

  9. Today I discovered that an anime for Ao Oni exists.

    Welp.

      Yeah actually. I think there are two films.

  10. 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

      Make a different genre of game. One that doesn't need a bunch of eventing or dialogue.

      If you think up an interesting system I'll take a stab at it for you Takeo.

    3. 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

    4. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      I know that feel. :P I also have some difficulties with some elements of gave dev. :P 

       

      Tarqeo sounds like a good idea, perhaps that could work. But yeah, being an adult kinda 'sux'. :P Or not being an adult - but having to have a job. :P 

  11. Moving out soon. Been chaotic but yea...

    No internet for a while after the 14th, so whoo!

  12. 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

      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...

  13. 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.

    2. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      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. :) 

  14. 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

    3. lonequeso

      lonequeso

      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.

  15. 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

       

      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

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      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 

  16. 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 :/

      If you can, try running them both in a Windows 7 Virtual Machine.

       

      It would just be one more checkbox to tick, just in case it may be something your OS is doing now it may not of done in the past (Windows 10 Updates are known to be very software breaky and buggy - you can ask anyone who knows their way around the OS and I follow a few people on YT that do use W10 and can confirm the less-than stellar OS to have issues many).

    3. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      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

    4. Tarq

      Mmm, are there any options available to you to test a DRM-free version? Like, message someone in customer support showing proof of purchase of the Steam version and request access to a non-Steam copy.

  17. Gonna try be productive so considering making a monthly "stuff pack" style of thing for practice and to try get back into drawing.

     

    Any particular themes/item sets anyones interested in? Besides Lone's ship - which is already on my list to redo - that is :P

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      A variety of weapons designed for the back, sized to fit 32W x 48H sprites.

      That would be cool.

      That's all I can think of. I actually don't know what your skill sets are in drawing so I might even be stretching things by asking of the weapons. 

    2. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Weapons aren't my strong point, but that's never stopped someone trying ;)

      Currently trying a few things, but MV still isn't working so I can't really test anything haha.

  18. Been trying to open MV for the past hour but the program keeps crashing/not opening.

     

    Anyone having this problem?

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Imma check on the other RM engines I have and see if it isn't a Steam issue.

      I don't have MV, but it is good to check since I have XP/VX/Ace.

       

      EDIT: Those opened up just fine, so it isn't Steam being an asshat.

    2. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      I've been playing some steam games with no problem, so it's definetely not a steam problem.

      Just tried opening MV again and it's still unresponsive. I guess it's had an update that isn't going well.

       

      Thanks for checking Phoenix. I uninstalled the other engines so wasn't able to check them. Thanks for the confirmation~

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I do what I can, when I can. You're welcome.

  19. Wait! Youtube has a dark theme?

    What now?

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yup, and I use it too.

      However, it doesn't affect everything, like channel/video manager for example...

    2. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Oh, ouch. I checked that actually and the contrast from using the dark theme and suddenly the bright white hurts the eyes...

       

      I've started using it, but it feels weird haha. It's nicer to watch videos on though.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      @Takeo212 Agreed; especially with certain types of videos such as music videos, gameplay footage, or live streams/stream highlights.

       

      However, flashing lights and contrasting lighting are not so great, hence why I have a lamp nearby turned on most of the time when I am on my computer.

  20. What formula could I use for MV to allow an item to heal 100 on field but 300 in battle?

    I understand I need to use a switch, but I forgot how to use them in formulas >.<

      Vis_Mage

      I did a bit of digging, and I think I found what you're looking for.

       

      $gameSwitches.value(1) ? 100 : 300

       

      Put this formula on your healing item. If switch 1 is off, you'll heal 100. If it's on, you'll heal 300.

  21. I've been drawing for the past 40+ minutes now. This has been on loop the entire time.

      ZOMBIEEEEEEEEEEE!

    2. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Whenever I draw, I usually "zone out" so I occasionally put something like this on loop. It's catchy whenever I remember it's playing.

       

      However, once I take a break from drawing, I suddenly feel like I've been driven crazy once I realise it's sill playing haha.

       

      I used to listen to playlists but since I zone out, I usually end up missing like 80% of the songs so I began looping ones instead.

    3. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Heh, I remember this song having stuck in my mind-

       

      When I was playing a video game- I kept yelling 'OH, THAT'S SO~ COO OO OO OO OOL!' whenever there was something nice in the game. :D 
      ... It's been a while though- I miss that. :lol:

      If you'd see the basic one for at least one second, you'd notice, that it's completely different. :P 

      The basic theme was requested by an user. Its purpose is to be as simple as possible, without fancy effects. With that being said, the basic one is the most compatible one, as it has the default code provided by the forum software.

    3. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      Nooooes! I came back and the default was back, and now the basic is all bright again Dx

      No worries Riki, I'll use the night one for now until the basic ones all fixed up (if haha)
