  1. I used to have a really cool sprite of a tall MV skeleton rising from the ground. If only I could remember where I got it for the new PC...

      Mayhaps it's a Steam Workshop item? 🤷‍♀️

  2. Good news and bad news about the new PC.

     

    Good news: this thing runs beautifully, I'm not gonna lie.

    Bad news: the keyboard that came with it is not programmer-friendly. RPG Maker hotkeys? Gone. Impossible.

     

    I've switched back to my old keyboard for convenience's sake.

      Well, it's not that surprising, is it? Everything these days is about 'make smaller, make more convenient', so losing function keys and the like are not uncommon finds.

      I personally would rather slap an IBM Model M in front of a modern PC setup, but that's me and my preference for mechanical, clicky keyboards (and the same kind of keys in general). To each, their own.

      The keyboards / mouses that come with PC's are meant to be pretty much starter devices - cheapest & simplest, just to let you operate with the new PC. Some PC's don't include these at all.

      So unless you're purchasing an actual bundle (for example some gaming bundle, where you get a fancy keyboard and mouse, that actually contribute to the price), don't expect anything awesome to be included.

       

      So yeah, there's nothing to worry or be sad about, as this is pretty much expected. 🙂

  3. New PC! This puppy should be able to run all my games and stuff without tanking my memory, no prob.

  4. Tried making a chase scene, ended up breaking the entire chapter. How did THAT happen?!

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Stranger things have happened.

      I've been there though...

      How did you break the chapter? Did you mess around with the wrong switches/variables?

    3. TobiObito4ever

      TobiObito4ever

      After some trial and error, I've (hopefully) managed to unbork it and get it working properly. Yaay!

  5. Might take a break from social media for a while. Stress has taken a serious toll on my body, physically and mentally. I'm actually trying my damnedest not to puke on my keyboard as I'm typing this.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Take care of yourself.

    2. Kayzee

      Honestly, why even use social media in the first place? Nothing good comes from it. But whatever, use it if you want. Just don't be afraid to withdraw a little if you need to! Remember, it's not the boss of you.

  6. You know you've messed up web design and bad when even your own userbase cannot browse your site without getting violent migraines and vertigo.

      Seriously... I can't even go on the new deviantart anymore without getting violently sick. Whelp, time to move to Pixiv.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Pixiv? Ewww....

       

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Hmmm...I have DA set to Dark mode...
      I hope that doesn't change...

       

  7. Okay, so I did a big stupid and forgot to add the regular version of the traveling typewriter font for YM&NM which explains why the font doesn't show up for me or other gamers. I'm sorry! I'll include it in the next fix.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      All is well, all is well. No worries, really.

  8. The next chapter of YM&NM may be delayed. My current PC is trying so hard to die, so I'm sending it in for repairs. Worst case scenario: I may be without a PC until I get a new one.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I myself have a defective HDD that I cannot do anything about so I know that feeling of dread which in turn becomes stress...

  9. I was gonna drop YM&NM episode 1, but last-minute playtesting revealed the item menu can't be accessed. At all. Back to the coding block...

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Uh-oh...








      That sucks (you thought I was gonna say 'Spaghettios!' LMAO)

  10. I never thought I'd find myself looking at cloth face masks online and thinking "these patterns are cute", but here we are. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Take those patterns and stitch a scarf instead. Those are far better at facial protection and are washable.

  11. Okay, I get it. Kamikakushi's not my best game, I know. We can't all defend our first (finished and published) game. I guess I was wrong to assume people knew about Japanese and Korean mythology...

     

    Here's hoping You, Me and Nothing More doesn't alienate our target demographic.

      The main complaint I get is that the portraits are too "modern" for post WW2 Japan. I've been trying to find face portraits for both Ueno and Yamazawa that don't make them look like brothers. And since the site I get my portraits from has a strict rule about recoloring, I can't do too much about that.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Really? Seems like a pretty minor complaint to me. Still, I do have an idea about this: If people don't like the portraits you use and you really don't have any good alternative, you might want to think about just... not using portraits. Maybe writing text as full prose? It's something I have thought about doing before myself, just not worrying about fancy art that people may not even like and go for something more textual.

      Wow. That's dirty gamers/trolling territory. I'd ignore that nonsense.

  12. My brother startled me the other morning by saying he wanted to try AC:NH. His reasoning? "This game (DOOM Eternal)'s too stressful."
     
    So I did him a solid and made him a profile on my AC:NH game. He's now an official member of Hanashima.
    1. PhoenixSoul

      Has a point; DOOM Eternal is designed to be much harder than any other DOOM release, and I've seen it firsthand.

      Nightmare difficulty on DOOM is a cakewalk by comparison to Ultra-Nightmare in DOOM Eternal...

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Even harder then Final Doom? I have heard things about them archviles...

       

      I still need to get a copy of AC:NH... I have mostly been completely ignoring DOOM Eternal's existence up till now since I can't imagine playing a Doom game with anything but a keyboard and mouse and I just know my old crappy lappy would explode if it tried to run it. Also not sure I would be too interested anyway. I never got Doom 2016, but watching people play it my reaction was always kinda "Okay, this is pretty cutely cheeky and all, but I don't think it's really for me".

      You know you've got a potato PC when it won't even run Gen. 4 emulators (PS2/Xbox/etcetera)...

  13. Mom treated her first COVID patient at her clinic a few days ago. Dad's gone nuts from cabin fever (already?!) and falsely accused me of wasting a can of Lysol (he just forgot to throw out the old can). Yep, our self-quarantine's off to a good start.

      Ugh, lolz
      People are really taking this to the chest...I can only hope that people will wake up to what's really going on...

      "I can only hope that people will wake up to what's really going on"

      Are you implying that the disease is some sort of conspiracy? 😝

       

      Well, to the OP, I wish your family the best. Just rest and take it easy. I hear that in most cases it isn't fatal and that with a lot of social distancing and rest it will be ok

  14. Whelp. My neck of the woods is in a state of emergency thanks to COVID-19.  Now has never been a better time to be a hikkikomori.

      The problem is even when people do think critically, most are unwilling to turn that same criticism inward.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      True, but there's this thing called a 'criticism spiral' that most tend to avoid, and for good reason; it leads nowhere good and often times, it leads to tremendous depression. 

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I think that also at least partly happens because of the lack of self criticism though. Without a good amount of self criticism I think people tend to construct their egos in ways that make them pretty fragile if attacked from the right angle. They still might have very strong defenses for the most part, but once a weakspot is exposed it doesn't take much for everything to collapse in on it's self.

       

      But in any case it's for sure a more complicated issue then that, and I think I have ranted here enough about crap.

  15. It finally happened. My RPG horror game, Kamikakushi, has been recognized by a big name: Tara A. Devlin, the author behind the horror anthology series Kowabana. I'm not worthy, AAAAAAAA....😳

     

    I know I sound like a broken record, but still... WOW.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Neato! It seemed like you worked hard on making Kamikakushi the best game it could be, so I am glad it got recognized! Some times hard work pays off after all I guess. :3

       

      I personally never heard of Tara A. Devlin myself, but I am pretty sure you never heard of most of the people I would be most excited to be recognized by either. :3

      Nice! Well done, mon ami.
