  1. To all those who celebrated today, hope it was enjoyable, and safe.


    For the first-timers, I sure as Hell hope you don't end up waking in some alley...


    (Okay, maybe that was too Hollywood...lol)

  2. @Kayzee Yeah. What is reality but someone else's fucked illusion anyway?
  3. Same here; I can only hope that something keeps World War III from going full-scale.
  4. @Rikifive If I know one thing, it is that Russia doesn't make empty threats. The Cold War is one huge reminder. I mean, the strike on Syria happened. The chemical attack, on the other hand, if it did occur, the culprit was very likely someone else, and those that did it revel in the fact that someone else took the fall, as cowards typically do. All that said, if it does lead to Russia launching warheads, like I said, I live well within the blast zone of a primary target. Of course, there are about six hundred or so primary targets for nuclear strikes in the US, but Wichita, KS is definitely a good one for spreading the ill effects of fallout, and I live about seven, eight miles from downtown Wichita. That's well within the the blast range of 100 miles. Blast range? The instant kill zone for those exposed to it. Explained already, I've nowhere to hide from that. I've more than enough reason to be fearful, more than enough reason to give those pieces of trash the final middle finger by not letting them decide my demise. I already deal with depression as is. A likely cause is the mass societal misconduct that has become normalized.
  5. I'm sure people are aware of things going down because of that jackass in the White House. If things go down the way I expect them to, I'd like to say good-bye in advance, because I won't let my demise be by the hands of anyone else but my own. Where I currently live, is well within the blast range of a primary target for nuclear strikes. Even underground, my chances of survival are low, and there are no shelters of any kind within a few hundred feet. So, I'll be taking care of things, and buying rope. I know what I'm saying is brutal, and may be ridiculous to many, but to Hell with the idea of allowing anyone to dictate what happens in any part of my existence, even the end of it. Some will try to run, or to hide, and I can only wish them the best of luck. Surviving the initial strike is only one part. Once the initial strike happens, further strikes will have no warnings. This is no conspiracy theory, no fear mongering nonsense. All this is, is the throes of someone whose life went from fantastic, to garbage, to futile effort, with no known fault of her own in the equation. Not saying I have no fault in anything that occurred, but to say I do have fault when I cannot think of anything I may have done wrong is just as bad as lying about it. ...If you've read this far, then I hope you're able to forgive my emotions as they run rampant. I don't want to end it all, but unless something happens that changes the outcome of this act of stupidity by the jackass in the White House, it will come down to those two options. In advance, fare all thee well; maybe we'll meet in Asuria...

    Stress relief for you, and for anyone else who sees them. I honestly could not imagine anyone looking at those and not having at the very least, a bit of a chuckle.
  7. Watched a lot of talking bird videos.

    Feels good to laugh, even if it hurts my lower abdomen after a bit.

    Best one thus far, well best two...
    There's Gotcha the Cockatoo that walks around and screams a bunch of nonsense...

    And there's a talking Budgie who was trying to learn "Get me some barbecued chicken." and initially, it sounded like this:
    "Get me some f*ck you chicken." lmfao :lol:

      Thanks, I definitely had a gander at your page.

    3. Saeryen


      I'm reminded of a raven video where the raven says "say 'nevermore'" and then "waka waka waka." Other corvids can learn to talk too, like magpies. Animals are really so cool, more than most people give them credit for.

  8. I agree with @Saeryen about the Times New Roman font.


    I can't really think of any way to be creative with it, and if a game menu had that as its' text, I'd probably hurl (likely not literally but definitely in my mind).


    I like curvy, kinda silly fonts, or anything not something from a stone carving. I'll do pixelated fonts as well as those that remind me of older tech like VCRs and such.

    1. Kayzee


      I think Times New Roman is a bit too thin and I generally prefer sanserif fonts anyway.


      Though I wonder if one could use it along with paper window skins to make an interface look like a newspaper?

    2. PhoenixSoul



      I cannot think of what sort of game would use such a thing...

    3. Kayzee


      A game where you play a noir detective or investigative journalist?

  9. lol-ol-ol-mfao

    Well, I just figured out what was eating away at my free HDD space; a log file for a program I tried then uninstalled.


    Someone, anyone, tell me that's normal, on an end user level...

    1. Kayzee


      You would be surprised how much files like that can eat up sometimes, but that might be a tad excessive.

    2. PhoenixSoul


      @Kayzee At least I was able to free up much needed HDD space, going from next to nothing to a lot more...

    A little happy tree... lol (Yeah, I loved Bob Ross, RIP)
  11. gamedev Entry 003: Throes of Damnation (small update)

    @KayzeeCool. I bookmarked the site for later perusal.
  12. I've been dealing with a lot of garbage as of late, so progress has slowed to a trickle. I'm actually still figuring out story and locations related to story. That part has been difficult to do. Also, I keep running into bugs with syntax, a lot of times in battle due to some sort of conflict or NoMethodError nonsense or a number of other things. Some of it I've been able to correct, some I've had to disable scripts to avoid, and some I've come across due to Game_Interpreter being stupid, that of which I've decided to avert by doing some really shoddy backhacking. I've also been testing out some of the modifiers I've made to existing scripts, and I recently made a fix to one of my own. I made a scriptlet that changes the Dash button. I made it so that one could bind it to a switch, or to a variable (I've not written that out as of yet but I know how to write it). However, if one uses Yanfly's System Options, my scriptlet breaks Autodash, if one changes the Dash button (it works fine if left unchanged). So, I figured out exactly what runs Autodash, and incorporated it into a scriptlet. Took me about ten minutes. It works. Well, other than scripting...I've progressed very little elsewhere. I'm trying to cobble together all the possible summons, but to be honest, I kinda wanna go further into the game and see where that goes before designing those further. However, until those are done, I won't be able to redo the skills for each one. I have a few NPC characters done, and I've also resized some small battlers so that they can look like they're not meant to be on a Game Boy Advance screen. I'm getting there; unfortunately my excursion with MV was a big distraction, and it did kind of take from my creative energies towards this project. Well, anyway, until next time, true believers...
  13. I'm very glad that I got the chance to try out MV. I'd be overall very pleased if my hardware were capable of running it better than it is able.

    But hey, gotta start somewhere. lol (I've been trying for over two years since I got this computer to get upgrades)

      Not sure I'd bother with porting anything; MV seems to be one of those standalone engines where porting would require rebuilding a lot. Given I've mainly just a bunch of half-finished ideas, using MV would be easier for me, but it wouldn't be a replacement by any means. I will still use XP, VX, and VX Ace.

    3. Kayzee


      Yeah, I barely have used MV myself. I should try making some plugins sometime, maybe even making my own random dungeon plugin for it, but I have done so much work with VX Ace already and I think I still prefer Ruby more then Javascript. I am probably more likely at this point to switch to using Java+JRuby to make my own engine then I am to seriously use MV.


      Even so, MV is pretty neat from what I have seen. Even if I think I like Ruby more I still like Javascript well enough, even though I never did much serious programming in it. It's more portable the VX Ace is for sure, though there are projects like mkxp for VX Ace that help in that regard. It's probobly more customizable in many ways and plugins may or may not be easier to make but I am not sure. Javascript does have the advantage I think that methods/functions are just another type of value so I don't think you need to do quite as much dirty monkey patching as you need to do with Ruby scripts. Not sure about that though, I never got around to try to make a plugin.


      Over all though? I don't think there is all that much of a big difference.

      Only a few hours left with the trial...


      I'm mainly just diddling with it. Managed to make some decently arranged SV troops.

  14. Free trial of MV via Steam? Cool.

    Crashing upon startup?

      In the case of mine, I just needed to put the opengl32.dll file into the directory of MV and it ran after that.


      It ran like crap, but it ran.

    3. TobiObito4ever


      I had that happen too.... after spending $70 dollars for it on Steam. Had to reinstall it and hope for the best. Second time was the charm, hahaha...

    4. PhoenixSoul


      Yeah. It was a fun run I had with MV.


      Someday, dammit! I'll be able to grab it (when it is on sale).
