  1. Me: I should work on my current project.

    Also me: I can't be arsed to worked on it! Let's work on that random idea totally irrelevant to your current project! Better yet, let's make it another project!

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yup. Been there, lolz 

       

      For me, it's usually due to lack of motivation or similar. 

    2. Meiri

      Meiri

      I feel this with my soul... I have too many random projects :(

  2. Oh, Lady Frigga... Give me the patience to deal with my teenaged friends and cousins.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Frigga huh? Did you pray to her because it was her day, or is that your generally followed goddess of choice?

    2. TobiObito4ever

      TobiObito4ever

      I hear she's the goddess of childbirth. Going by that train of thought, childbirth -> parenting.

       

      Ironic that I can deal with small children no problem but just "NOPE" it out when it comes to teenagers.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hmmm.... I thought that was more Freyja's thing, but then they may or may not be the same person (apparently it's not really clear). Anyway, I find it ironic because I am pretty sure it was still Friday when you posted that... and FRIday is FRIgg's day. No really, that is where the word comes from.

       

      Fyi: Sunday = sun's day, Monday = moon's day, Tuesday = Týr's day, Wensday = Odin/Woden's day, Thursday = Thor's day, Friday we know, and Saturday = Saturn's day (The odd one out that one)

  3. Sheesh... why is it so hard to come up with puzzles that fit the setting and lore of a game? @.@

     

    Context: "What kind of puzzle would a bunch of mischievous fairies give a 13-year-old girl to deter her from entering any further into their turf?"

    or "What kind of childish puzzles would a creepy Lovecraftian horror in the form of a 7-year-old girl give?"

    or "What would a genius mad scientist do to keep intruders out that would be simple enough for a teenager to solve?"

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      If I never had any challenges to overcome, I'd grow bored myself.

       

      Don't work too hard, okay?

  4. Hm.... To interface screw or not to interface screw, that is the question. Would a reversed direction maze be too frustrating? More importantly, how would one implement that? *Girls are thinking aloud*

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I do that all the time, lolz

      (thinking aloud/answering to my own thoughts)

       

      I've been called 'crazy person/mental for it more times than I could count on a hundred pairs of hands...

  5. OH. MY. GOODNESS.

     

    According to my girlfriend/co-writer, the lead writer of Lupiesoft has taken an interest in one of our projects. All words have failed to show my surprise. :blink: (Yuyucat being my GF)

      Awesome. Here's to being gamedevs. Cheers!

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Ah, isn't it wonderful how yuri can bring us all a little closer together? :3

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      @Kayzee Yes, it is quite wonderful.

  6. Thank you Valve for destroying the dreams and incomes of any yuri game dev by listening to trolls and extremist Tumblr SJWs.

     

    My current project may never be on Steam (most assets are noncommercial use only), but I fear what may happen for any other of our team's projects. We at Obakeneko Works mostly design yuri games, hehehe...

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, all it'll take is enough backlash and Valve will back off.

       

      Trust me, I've already heard plenty on this and it won't last long.

  7. Why must so many people twist my words for their own gain?

     

    And people wonder why I rarely speak.

      Of course I don't mean you, Phoenix. Was a bit frustrated with someone else (certainly not here).

    3. Animebryan

      Animebryan

      Because society (as a whole) has become mentally ill & have thrown away most of their morals for their own selfishness & greed. What's really scary is that people will only continue to get worse, never better. The world is truly going to hell in a hand-basket & its too late to reverse the damage. Moral of the story: Buy yourself a double-barrel shotgun & plenty of ammo & prepare of the Zombie Apocalypse!

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      @Animebryan Unfortunately, that is the very truth. It is a Violent Pornography of sorts (yes I made a song reference there), only the violence is cyclical and non-stop BS.

      A society based in Equality and Reputability, is the society humans were designed to live in, and the type of society I came from, but here, society is based in Greed and Avarice, and I f*cking hate it.

      @TobiObito4ever I see. I know what that's like, especially when they're asshats about it and basically block you. Deserving very much to be treated like rag dolls.

  8. To link to my friends' and my studio Discord server or not...

     

    On one hand, I encourage people asking about our projects and games' lore. But on the other, I don't want to spoil too much about the stories.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Maybe share the link privately...I dunno. Ultimately, that's your call...

  9. What's the difference between regular mapping and parallax mapping? I don't really get it...

      Kayzee

      Regular Mapping - Actually efficient.

      Parallax Mapping - "Duh... Let's blow all my memory on a 10000x10000 image file because I am too lazy to do it properly! That's a wonderful idea! Derp... Why is my game slow, crashes all the time, and take forever to load?"

       

      Don't get me wrong, Parallax Mapping isn't that bad as long as the maps are pretty small, but: A. I am really tired of people complaining about things that are caused by their own bad habits and B. 90% of parallax maps I have seen are just tilemaps with a few touch ups.

    3. Saeryen

      Saeryen

      @Kayzee I don't think you should be so hard on parallax mapping. Some people can make really good level designs by drawing them.

       

      I have a little fan game I'm working on, and there are certain levels that represent characters' minds, so a regular map really doesn't cut it. If I visualize a character's psyche to be represented by a giant sunflower, there's no way I can regular map that and make it look good. The solution is to use a parallax background.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      You might be surprised what you can do with custom tilesets and large event graphics or other sprites. But in any case, like I said, Parallax Mapping isn't that bad as long as the maps are pretty small. I think it would be fine to use, for example, the kind of static backgrounds that old PlayStation RPGs used. But parallax background aren't really often used that way from what I have seen. Instead of a high quality background that is only a screen or two big, it looks to me like most people just take a screenshot of a huge map and draw things over top of it.

  10. Me: I should try writing happier stories/games.

      EB: yes.
      EB: please write some happy stories in your journal, about lively horses, and conspicuously not about wizards, or sadness.
      TT: ... "Happy?"
      TT: What is this strange, unsad emotion of which you speak?
      EB: yes, this is good.
      EB: you see rose, these are jokes.
      EB: this are what they look like, do not be alarmed.
      TT: Jokes?
      TT: Are those the things people say when they want unusual noises to come out of the pliable crescent-shaped holes sometimes found in people's faces?
      EB: laughs, rose. laaaughs.
      EB: also, those crescenty looking holes where laughs come out of?
      EB: those are smiles!
      EB: observe... :D
      TT: I need to make a note of this.
      TT: Excuse me while I open this tome bound in the tanned, writhing flesh of a tortured hellscholar. The screaming will subside shortly.
      EB: ok, i will wait patiently.
      TT: Continue to not be alarmed as I record your advice with runes stroked in the black tears bled from the corruption-weary eyes of fifty thousand imaginary occultists.
      TT: And then brace yourself for the fabled blackdeath trance of the woegothics I will slip into, while quaking in the bloodeldritch throes of the broodfester tongues.
      EB: no, rose!
      EB: that sort of nonsense is exactly what is out of the question!
      EB: i see things are more urgent than i realized.
      EB: i will have to venture there straightaway, and slap you right out of that silly old trance!
      TT: One is not easily shaken from the broodfester tongues, John.
      TT: They are stubborn throes.
      EB: oh.
      EB: well shit.

      I have wrote happier stories before (read: fanfiction), but I mostly specialize in bittersweet stories.

       

      I mean, my current project is: "The world is still a post-apocalyptic mess, but there's hope of being rebuilt."
      My friend's project I'm helping with is: "The evil will eventually reawaken and some goddesses are still deader than dead, but at least you reunited with your loved one."

      I like bittersweet every now and then. Stories like that tend to a lot more realistic when not everyone gets to live happily ever after, and that central chracter you saw die is actually dead and doesn't make a surprise return or is brought back to life cuz reasons.  

  11. Kinda confusing myself here when it comes to writing a convincing doctor character in a post-apocalyptic setting, where the threat of rad poisoning is very real.

     

    Friendly disclaimer: I am, by no means, a medical professional so if I come off as incredibly misinformed or careless about these things, I apologize.

      I know a little medical stuff, but nothing very complex. So all that technical jargon about radiation poisoning is out of my league.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      Radiation poisoning...oof.

      Well, I work in a hospital so I can provide a few insights. As characters, you probably want to scrap the 'kind old gentleman' doctors. Most I've met are very conceited; They've dedicated themselves from a young age to the profession so they probably need to convince themselves, through others, that this was a good decision.

      They also wont be the 'calm, collected leader' types a lot of media implies. Doctors actually have a pretty high suicide rate; They know the warning signs and also what the endgame of severe conditions are like.

       

      Practically speaking, while they will have been taught basic medicine in all fields they go onto specialise. So its unlikely a dermatologist would be able to diagnose, or treat, some obtuse ophthalmic condition. You should also consider that they probably would have studied pre-apocalypse where there wont have been much demand for studying radiation poisoning.

  12. Working on some CG for one part of the game. Yes, it's meant to look like childish scribbles; it's for a children's book the player can read! (These were all drawn by me~ o(^▽^)o )

      That is a really cute style! Really digging it.

  13. Personally, I felt Margaret (an optional boss) was too OP. Many playtesters have complained to me this was the case. I have tried multiple times to make her easier, but none have worked until now.

     

    Rest assured! She will be easier to beat in the 1.9 demo.

  14. What does THIS mean?

      VX Ace, or MV?

       

      If VX Ace...
       

      Spoiler
      
        def process_escape_character(code, text, pos)
          case code.upcase

       

      It means there's an escape character that's causing Ruby to throw a fit.

      VX Ace. It was a relatively minor fix. ^^;

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yay!

      Glad I was able to help (if I did...)

  15. Not Acknowledging Equipped Weapons?

    Tab two is the boss's dialogue when you defeat her. Tab 3 ensures the dialogue doesn't loop. Woo! She finally recognizes it! Thanks a bunch!
