  1. I hope I was able to be helpful. I tried at least, lolz

      Well... it will work at least... ( lol [1,1].min ) :P

      What's wrong with being a little archaic? I am probably many times more archaic then you are you know.

      grrr...

      I'M. NOT. INFERIOR.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      PS, seriously, being 'inferior' doesn't even really make sense. There is no real authority, divine or mortal, that can rank beings in any kind of absolute hierarchy that is not ultimately meaningless and arbitrary.  You aren't 'inferior', you aren't 'superior', you aren't even 'equal'. You are exactly one thing: You.

  3. Remaking classic JRPGs like Chrono Trigger? A tremendous feat that would be to be done with an engine like RM.

    Would be no less of an undertaking than that of Daggerfall Unity, or FFVI Brave New World...

      What @Kayzee says is true, although I will say that a lot of public plugins already exist for MV that would segue the process quite a bit. More importantly, however, it's not near enough on its own to get it to point of remake. Most of the above mentioned plugins really just emulate what was there, sometimes just to a degree. 

       

      I'm the same as Kayzee as far as the effort required meaning it's better to just make your own game, but that's just my opinion. I hear what you're saying, though @PhoenixSoul.  It makes sense, and to counter all my own arguments, a remake of any kind is always gonna be this much effort, so really.... we're all right... and.... we're all wrong.

       

      How can that be?

      Wait, what's happening? I'm in an old black and grey tube television? Oh....no, is this the end of a Twilight Zone episode???

      Hehe, right and wrong are like up and down, left and right, or ana and kata. It depends on what way you are facing. :3

       

      BTW, this status seems to be referencing this thread and one thing I noticed is that the OP didn't actually state that they wanted to do a remake, just that they loved the battle system and wanted to know if it was possible in XP.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I was thinking of that thread, but also of RPG Maker based remakes in general since that is a locally popular idea that some have tried, to varying levels of success.

  4. I recently had a privacy scare, and as a result, I looked into all accounts that were opened with my email. I'm glad that none of them were accounts I didn't open but there were a few I decided to deactivate anyway.

    Yeah; not opening any new accounts or entering my email into anything for at least two weeks. Should give Yahoo time enough to fix their sh!t.

      I don't know where you got that idea at but you're wrong. Like I said, I've been using this service myself for about 10 years now & I've never had to pay a dime.

      Huh, okay. Maybe I was thinking of something else.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      One can get email service from them, though last I checked there is some kind of barrier to entry, I believe it is in the form of requiring a mobile device that can send and receive SMS messages, that I don't think was there ten years ago.

  5. I was gifted Assetto Corsa.
    Only the launcher runs but I'm grateful to have it all the same. Maybe someday I'll have the proper hardware to run races, to do a lot more as well like have a more secure OS.

      My price range...
      At this point...
      Is "I need this for free - I guess I gotta steal it"...
      Because I have no spare money at all...
      But yeah...it's either I spare money and pay no bills and have a computer with no place to sleep...

      You get the idea I'm sure.

      I'm really sorry to hear that, money is always tight around my home, we have sometimes where we have extra, but most times we're just scraping by. I hope your situation improves soon, you never knew when life my turn around and be your friend (it isn't often, but it happens)

  6. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that THUG Pro runs on this 2008 DELL; the codebase is from a much older game...lolz

    Anyway...trying to implement random chance stuffs and once again, something is breaking...

    1. Arrpeegeemaker

      Arrpeegeemaker

      What's the issue? Is the implementation itself not working, or is the implementation breaking other things?

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I dunno; it might be that somewhere, the conditional branches aren't executing properly.

      I'll be looking into it when I get back into VX Ace.

  7. Eric got his castle stolen? How? Can he get it back? Find out when Take Back Eric's Castle comes out soon-ish.

      Not quite like that, lolz

      Not a bad idea for a game using Arc Engine though.

      Died at 65 due to cancer. Damn cancer sucks. My mom was just recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. I know those jackass rich elites found a cure for it already but are hoarding it to themselves & only letting people with ridiculous amounts of money get it. I officially nominate 2020 as the worst year I've ever lived & only expect the next few years to only get worse 😭

  12. Still working on a lot of things.

    Nothing is close to done.

    Creative Drive stalled.

    I'm looking forward to when the stupidity of society drops to a tolerable level, and I don't care if it takes some cataclysm to achieve it!

  13. I've mostly been gaming and not really doing too much gamedev. It just so happens that Crystal Clear 2.1 just got released and I'm loving that a lot.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I know how that is! :3

  14. This sucks; for the longest time I've had a direct, easy to access internet modem and now, I have to once again, hook up a wireless USB adapter to my craptastic hardware. The last two times I had to do this before the move, it did not work well, if at all. I expect the same from this adapter.

    Why is this happening? Because the purse string puller decided to switch ISPs to 'save' money, that likely will not last, if there's any significant impact at all. I'll no longer have a landline phone, and if this falls through, I'll not have internet access either, as I expect. I'd scream a bunch of vulgarities in all-caps, but that'd likely just have one of the admins mad at me for crap I had no control over.
     

    No, this is not fair. Arguments to the contrary and 'life is not fair' get a 'no' response.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      You can switch ISPs? You mean you aren't an eternal slave to the whims of comcast? I was under the impression comcast had much of the middle part of the US in a monopolistic stranglehold. Or is it still comcast just a more shitty version?

       

      I would rather avoid bringing fairness into it at all. This is a problem. Let's try and find a solution. I am pretty sure there is one no matter how crappy your hardware is. I mean if someone can get an apple ][e to browse reddit with some tinkering, Surely you can find some way to get it to work if you try.

       

      Also... ... How to put this...

       

      ...


      Okay... Please listen for a moment. Do me a favor and look at your followers for a moment. I donno about you but on that second row there is a particular pink pony with yellow hair. You know, Rikifive, who I am pretty sure is your friend as well as mine. And also happens to be the most active admin on the site. Now you know me. I have opinions and I have al least once broken the rules gotten in trouble with Riki in the past. So have you if I recall correctly. I have seen tyrant admins before, and while I don't always agree with Riki, they are not one. They have always been understanding. I would even use the word 'fair' to describe them, and you know how much I roll my eyes at that.

       

      So here's a question: Do you think I would I stand by their judgement if you did if you did scream a bunch of vulgarities in all-caps and they banned you?

       

      ... Let's go back a bit and look at something you said in this very status update.

       

      Quote

      I'd scream a bunch of vulgarities in all-caps, but that'd likely just have one of the admins mad at me for crap I had no control over.

       

      So... Here's the thing...

       

      Don't you think that by not screaming a bunch of vulgarities in all-caps so you don't get in trouble... You have in fact proven that if you did do it any admin that did in fact get mad at you would in fact get mad at you for something that you actually did have control over?

       

      You know... For a long time I have sorta been skirting around what I think is an important issue. Because I am really really scared you are going to get really upset with me. Do you remember our little talk about 'cognitive dissidence'? You know when I first heard you complain about it, I admit... I kinda had a thought in my head that went something like: 'I guess as the queen of cognitive dissidence she would know'. But I chickened out from saying it, as I have a lot. I still think what I did end up saying was maybe a little too mean and partly walked it back.

       

      But... yeah. You kinda say things like that a lot. Most people do to be honest. I probably do a ton myself and never really realized it. Or more likely have and passed it off as a dumb joke or me being crazy. Which to be fair to myself, it often is. But I try to be better then that. Or... no. I shouldn't say that. I try to be different to that. Better, worse, I have no idea. Not sure why I should even care. Ha! Even that sounds like I am trying to feel smugly superior by not feeling smugly superior! And maybe I am!

       

      Hehehe... Can you imagine what that does to my self esteem? I would like to imagine that if self esteem could be measured as a number like an RPG statistic, it would be NaN! I am neither better then, worse then, the same as, or different to, everybody else! I want to spread this feeling... Like snugging a big ball of deadly tarantulas! I believe it's possible to accept and understand yourself, even if it means accepting that you and everyone else is totally utterly insane! AND ALSO LOVE IT! Praise Eris!

       

      ... Okay that was way too melodramatic and pretty pointless, but I feel better. Also sleepy. Night!

       

      ... I'm totally serious though, even if I am still joking. My brain is wonderfully weird and I would totally love to drive everyone in existence totally insane. Well, I mean they already are, but I mean the fun kind of insane, not the unfun kind.

      Technically, AT&T is not an internet service provider.

      They are a telephone company; it just so happens that they can wire the telephone lines to be used for internet service. Said internet service is provided by Verizon.

      As for the wireless USB adapter, for now (YEAH FOR NOW-GIVE IT A FEW MONTHS LIKE THE LAST TWO DAMN TIMES), it works okay. The wireless signal is acceptable, but I will be looking into a wired solution later on. Either that or moving out. Right. Like that's remotely possible.

  15. Anyone need a break?
    Here, watch this:

      Like that other dumb meme song (I'm Drivin' Down The Road), now I wanna chart this one for Clone Hero, lolz

  16. It's likely that using @Selchar's Durability Affixes breaks @Tsukihime's Item Affixes for any other use.

    So, if I wanted to make a prefix to have some piece of equipment be unbreakable, that isn't possible.

    Either that, or some compatibility bug is present.

    I cannot tell which; I have so many scripts in play, I don't even think dearest love @Kayzee could figure it out, not that it matters since she's more often than not, playing her Switch these days...

    If I could get my PS3 working again I'd be okay with that. I'd still have to get a lot of games that were stolen from me back somehow...

    2. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I find that in many scripts a max of zero is often treated as meaning the item doesn't have a max. Really 'nil' works much better, but most people don't really know about it and it's harder to use in notetags. What happens if you just don't give an item durability at all?

       

      Also: If I am understanding how prefixes work correctly, since durability isn't a normal feature/stat on equipment, I bet it would be ignored by prefixes.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      The durability is a suffix, but yeah, that's exactly what I am thinking is happening.

      If one doesn't notetag the durability it sets it to the default as configured in the script. I dunno what happens if the default is 0.

    4. Kayzee

      Whatever, it's a modifier.

  17. I'm glad to see coders dropping their MZ code resources here. Now, if only graphic artists would do the same...

      I see the new artists on the RPG Maker Web. I am happy that MZ and MV art format similar.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah. A site I'll never go back to, after the way I was treated for someone else's stupidity.

      Anyway, if they do start dropping their art here, I'd be happy to see it.

    4. Kupotepo

      Kupotepo

      Yeah, the artists are really active there, but the MZ-VS is now a negative emotional war. I encourage people to be nice to others people, but I do not think it will be the same.

  18. So, I took a code dive into Luna Engine for VX Ace.

    It's an interesting little thing; kinda wanna see if I could make the main menu screen look different.

  19. FPLE is actually pretty cool, if a bit cumbersome to work with.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      What's that? I saw there was a first person dungeon crawl plugin for MV called that...

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      First Person Labyrinth Explorer. It was revamped for MV but got its' start in XP.

      I don't intend to use it for any current projects but it is neat to see, especially since there's a potential lot one can do with it.

      a.max_tp +=x

      I'll have to look into this when I get back into gamedev...

    4. Tsukihime

      Tsukihime

      @Kayzee oh ya, that thing lol.
       

      One of them is designed as a framework for letting other plugin devs define new effects for users so that users don't need to write code. The other is designed to be just "write whatever code you can think of"

       

      The first one, being a framework, requires additional set up. And then you're stuck with limited note-tag parsing option.

       

      The second one, you get multi-line code parsing. Definitely better.

  20. I absolutely enjoy using XP for mapping. It's not a chore at all to switch between map layers. It adds complexity and depth, and to be honest, if someone were to re-code VX/ VX Ace with XP map layers, I'd pay money for that. I don't know why it was removed in the first place.

      ... Okay, how is that a double-entendre?

       

      Seriously, if there really is an obvious one and I missed it I will be very disappointed with myself.

       

      Edit: Oh is this about layers being visibly separate?

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      (Wrong word. Screw it.)

      Yes, with controls to lay tiles on any chosen layer. Like how it is in XP and in MZ.

      I don't know how to downgrade, if such is even possible.

      I'd switch to Firefox if I could find comparable extensions.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Firefox has TOOONs of extensions and a lot of them are made for both. And really most of the time you 'downgrade' by uninstalling and reinstalling an older version and turning off automatic updates. Most of the time your settings/extensions/whatever don't get deleted when you uninstall stuff just in case you need to do something like that.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I know that there are some I have that do not, so...

      I dunno; I'll look into it at some point.

  24. Where I currently reside is not far from an incinerator capable of burning people to ash.

    Con-Vid-19 won't take me alive.
    May the Divines guide us all...

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      ... You know incinerators are totally overkill for Covid-19. Just saying. Also throwing yourself in an incinerator is probably going to be a lot more painful and deadly then what covid-19 is likely to do anyway.

       

      Shit like this is really not helping anyone you know, least of all yourself.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      It may not be necessary, but that's not why they'd do it.

      They'd destroy evidence, destroy biometrics, basically all the bodies burned would be unidentifiable, and that's why they're using them. They've been actively using them here and there for the past couple of months.

      No; if I fail to fend this off, I'll use a high place and gravity to end it all.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      ... Why would they bother hiding any evidence when apparently this is such a big conspiracy everyone already knows about it anyway?

       

      Also, still not helping. Am I doing anything but encouraging you? If you keep this up I might have to start just ignoring you when you go on like this, otherwise we will just go around in circles.
