  1. If I suddenly vanish completely or for a long time, the landlord is to blame; violating the Fair Housing Act is something that this greedy, avaricious piece of crap is good at doing and getting away with. I happen to be the landlord's next victim, and if it comes to it, well, I hope to see ya at the edge of the Great Black River; I'll even pay your fare to cross.

      I do not have the fortitude to survive being homeless; it will be my end, one way or another.
      ...
      If I do end up having a place to move to, then fine, but this whole thing is still one hundred percent bullshit.

      That honestly makes me really sad.  I don't know where you are or what your money situation is like so I can't give to much advice, but I can say that there are several states with resources to help you start over.  I am assuming by your mention of the Fair Housing Act that you're in the US.  Hopefully you can do greyhound to greener pastures if you must.  If this all stems from your LGBT status, come to Georgia.  Some of the lowest rents in the country and a VERY high LGBT population, particularly in Atlanta, plus plenty of good paying jobs.

      Actually, the given reason...
      It honestly has nothing to do with me, but you know, 'guilt by association' bullshit.
      ...
      But yeah; me being me is definitely part of it, though the bitch would never admit it, because if she did, she could be charged with a hate crime, and landlords tend to not be landlords for long after just being charged with a hate crime, or so I've come to understand (this may not be universally true).
      ...
      As for me leaving on a bus anywhere, I'd have to be a stowaway; I don't have money for an expensive bus trip, not to mention that if I did manage to get on a bus going wherever, I'd be leaving behind everything, including my only access to the internet, as well as all my projects, and attire... yeah. I'm not adequately prepared for that. Why?
      ...
      Disability payments are an absolute joke; I do not get enough to pay for anything living wise, and even when living with others, I never, never, not ever see any spare money, except on the extremely rare occasion. Oh, yeah; since I also have a non-systemized payee, if I left, my payee would get all that money, because I'd have ABSOLUTELY NO MEANS OF GETTING IT. I mean, it's a slow, painful death, just with different scenery. Well, unless someone was kind enough to let me stay with them, but that's something you'd see from my homeland, not here.
      ...
      If it sounds like I'm being dramatic for pity's sake, maybe my sudden absence will give pause, should that happen; this is a very real threat, and those that claim 'drama queen' are the exact jackarses THAT GET MADE INTO RPG MAKER BATTLERS (and the worst of them are made into pushover jokes). A lot of the battlers in Ramsey are going to reflect the stupidity of society, or so that's the plan. I still need time to finish this, but I am too stressed out over the stupid crap going on. The same stupid crap that threatens everything.

  2. So, it's becoming more, and more clear that despite Windows 7 being far more stable than the sloptoast that is Windows 10, it's going to be harder, and harder, to do much of anything at all, and that really SUCKS.

    No, I'm not going to ask you for help; a fruitless endeavor that would be, but! I've exhausted everything I can do, so yeah, it's going to come down to the aid of someone else, whomever that is. I'm doing my best, but the only thing motivating me to even care one iota is the project I started, that I'm feeling massive pangs of regret for even remembering the inspiration source material in the first place.

    I miss a lot of things, but most of all, the random conversation drops, yes that has had a massive detrimental effect on me. Life gets in the way, sure, but I don't buy that it's all that it is, no; it's because I'm autistic and that leads to off-putting interactions, doesn't it!?!!?

      The disc wont help anymore, the parts made these days are built disregarding the old OS, meaning it's liable to be full of issues.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I guess not everyone knows that I have two PCs, technically three with the one much older tower that only has IDE ports, but the one that runs Windows 7, and the one that has an embedded Windows 10 registration key in the UEFI that I have no access to, are not the same PC.
      ...
      For the Win7 PC, I absolutely still have the install disc, and yes, it still works as intended. Unfortunately, it's the most basic version of Windows 7. I'm not quite sure what @Remi-Chan is getting at though.
      ...
      If I wanna do things like run higher end emulators on the Win7 PC, I need something like a Radeon 2400. I have no idea where I'd be able to procure one of those. I don't need a GPU for the more capable PC, it has a Radeon HD 7000, but it does need a new HDD, and one that has at least 1 TB of space. No, I can't buy stuff online. Unless the technology is developed that allows one to insert physical currency for digital store payments, it's, NOT, HAPPENING. Sweet Mercy.

    4. Animebryan

      Animebryan

      Well, for converting physical currency into digital, there's options like Paypal. If you have a place that lets you add funds onto that account (I know Walmart does, at $20 minimum & a $3 charge). Its the method I use to make online purchases.

  3. ...In all due honesty, I've been considering leaving every site I've ever registered on, and just lying in bed because of how stupid everything is, and how badly I've been treated...

    I've been struggling a lot, and it doesn't help when my struggles are considered 'just being lazy' by ableist trash...

    I tried looking into the notifications, NOPE! EX145. Seriously, I've kinda given up, but still, can we actually have a fix that doesn't break!?

    Who am I kidding; nothing is actually fixable.

      As far as I know, it happens because of unreliable webhosting service.

      These constant errors bother me too, but sadly I can't do much about them... I have to mail the system admin each time this happens and await response.

  4. I'm close to done with Ramsey v.1.0, but I have these left to do:
    > Graphic bits (this is a game where sprites and faces are built piece by piece and are customizable)
    > Functionalities (it's mostly finished in that regard but there's still a few things left to make happen)
    > Mapping/Tiles (I think I have most of my needed tiles but making maps is going to take a while more)
    > NSFW filtering (this is going to be very difficult and it might not make v.1.0 - note that this will not include vulgarity if it actually becomes a feature at all)
    > Writing/Grammar/Spelling (probably the largest portion of this burden to complete)
    > P2P file sharing (yes I want to distribute the game in this fashion just in case other mediums fail-is not likely to be a thing by v.1.0)

  5. You know, I'm glad this is a place where one can freely talk about just about anything...

    It has come to my attention that a lot of sites and groups have really bad, biased admin/moderators that tend to play favourites but hate being called out on it or love to make examples of those that talk about 'sEnSiTiVe ToPiCs'...

    It's a bad trend and it's inspired by the same Orwellian crap that was meant to be fiction, always be fiction. George Orwell would be very pissed off, and would not be the only one either.

    I'm glad that I can talk freely, but I suspect that will change at some point. I was raised differently; Free Will is paramount and those that seek to erase it deserve the worst punishment feasible.

    1. WinolaKrista

      WinolaKrista

      In what ways are those sites' admins/moderators "bad" or "biased"? What "sensitive topics" would they rather not be discussed? Who is seeking to erase free will, and what does that erasure look like in your day to day life?

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Ah, great questions, @WinolaKrista. Glad I chose to wait to respond though.

      So, I will answer them in 3/4/1/2 order. Simplest to most complex.

      3) Elitists, Politicians, basically anyone in government, or western religion circles, and those brainwashed by their poisoned but honeyed words (sometimes actions).
      4) I see darkness, and hear nothing. Feel nothing. Think that's pretty clear.
      1) Most admins are elitists and/or narcissists (or become like this). I don't think I have to elaborate too much on how bad that is, how imbalanced that is...
      2) Well, let's just say that, almost anything can be a 'sensitive topic'. Truth is, if it's a topic one doesn't wanna discuss, then they shouldn't get involved with the discussion. Pretty simple, but for an admin whose ego is so thick that it requires a damned mallet and chisel to break it down, it's easily overblown. I'm not going to specify any individual, even if they deserve it, because I am not rallying for an all-out-internet assault here. If I wanna duel someone, I wanna duel them in person. Internet drama is words on a screen, sometimes vid conferences gone bad, or internet telecom gone bad, but it's intangible due to internet volatility. However, actual pain and injury following an in-person duel is tangible, and something one can learn from. Of course, it is meaningless unless all dueling parties are able to walk/hobble/be assisted away.

      All those 'duels' in 'Western'/cowboy films? Absolutely, laughably pointless. Most of those end with few survivors and a massive mound of PTSD. 💩

  6. Anyone here?
    Or, are we just completely disconnected now?

      Bane: I've decided to crash this plane, with no survivors!

  7. I'm glad that my game was reviewed and the review was uploaded to the internet, but the narrative was altered because of how stupidly broken YouTube is. Ever since Susan took the position of CEO, that platform has gotten worse, and worse exponentially.

    Of course, issues with YT started long before, but she and her cronies have made them worse, not better.

    Sign of how bad things have gotten, mostly ignored...

  8. Some food for thought:

    The game world of TES V: Skyrim is massive, there's lots to see and do, and it is not cramped at all.

    But then, you have the immensely larger game world of TES II: Daggerfall. Yes, there's a fast travel system that allows for traveling anywhere at any time, and yes, the landscape is topographically lackluster (even though there is topographical coding present it goes unused), but still...

  9. The tornado that tore arse through Andover, the storm began its' life over Haysville, where I currently reside. Can you imagine, having something like that happening so nearby...

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yikes! Glad you are okay!

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      EF3 damage, twenty-one miles in length. To boot, the tornado moved at a snail's pace, 20 mi/h / 32 km/h. It wasn't the only tornado the storm produced; it dropped another one after sunset just to the west of Rosalia.

      #WrathOfAelita
      #AndoverTornado
      #WildRosesForRosalia

      "Wild roses?"

      I dunno; I was thinking of taglines and had Final Fantasy on the mind as well.

  10. #WrathOfAelita #AndoverTornado #WildRosesForRosalia

  11. Limited carry capacity?
    Yeah, it makes sense.

    Even more sense when the weight of small items is less than one, but greater than zero.

  12. I like Emerald's Skill Trees script, it definitely has a good amount of features and is somewhat easily customizable, but I keep wondering if there's one that's even more modular and less resource heavy.

    Hmmm...

  13. So, after doing a long, deep perusal through @Eric Matyas' music collection (mainly to place what I've downloaded into more organized folders because I suck at organizing and have issues with executive functioning in general), I came across a piece that inspired me to create a new character/love interest for Ramsey, who is also a rival/nemesis type character.

    I've essentially increased the number of playable characters from twenty, to twenty-four; I'll have to fill the other three spots with cameos or what-have you, be something I do as I go, but I've finally found the victory BGM I wanted for character slot 20, that one evaded me for a long time. Yes, the new character also has a victory BGM; I took one of the BGM pieces from the Cosmic Music Pack and increased the tempo by sixty percent (via Audacity).

  14. Since XP, VX and VX Ace are deprecated, the source code should be available, so that certain problems can actually be fixed.

    Maybe then, the experience will be better going forward.

    Note, I didn't say make the source code public. Yet.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Not likely to ever happen. Closest thing you will ever get is projects like EasyRPG and Mkxp.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Ah, it used to be that for a fee, one could get a copy of the source code if the dev opted to provide it.

      Hah; I'd love to see 'Right to Repair' tackle software...LOL

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      It used to be most software was made by hobbyists and they tended to provide source code anyway. Then more and more big corporations started getting into software and they wanted to control everything. That triggered the great free software rebellion and... well history is complemented and I'm not going to go over all of it.

      A big part of the 'Right to Repair' stuff is abut software and having the right to install custom software on to devices and stuff like that. As for the right to repair software it's self, that's partly what the idea of free software is all about, the freedom to change and fix software.

      So support free software kiddos!

      That, dearest love @Kayzee, @Rikifive, is Neversoft Eye; the mascot and an unlockable skater in THPS3 (except for the PlayStation iteration). Neversoft Eye has also been imported into Guitar Hero World Tour: Definitive Edition.

      I also know the skateboard tricks NSEye pulled off in that vid clip.
      1) Truckstand -> Truckstand Flip
      2) To Rail/Primo
      3) Casper -> Casper Shove

    3. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      I only played THPS3 and 4 on PSX. Now that I checked it, I didn't even know it was on PS2 as well! How come I didn't know about it?

      I miss playing these on PSX though, I often was doing dumb things rather than playing normally. I really miss these times...

       

      Nice, I never paid too much attention to name of the tricks, so I remembered only few basic ones lol.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      THPS3 was on PlayStation, PS2, Xbox, and PC. (I forget which Nintendo console got THPS3)
      As for the flatland tricks, most of them would actually not even be in the game proper until THPS4 or even THUG1.

  16. Anyway...
    I really am starting to miss having that i5-6600 and AMD Radeon 7000 running stuff.

    No; the GPU is not usable in my much older PC.

  17. So, Windows 10 corrupted the HDD on my more capable PC and I've yet to figure out how to get a viable replacement.

    Honestly, I was going to upgrade from the ~500 GB HDD, but, like, I needed a lot more time than a few months, for Mercy's sake.

    Dammit, Microsoft. You and your damn updates.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Oh dear... I hope you get it working soon!

    2. ElCodes

      ElCodes

      That sucks! I've been there my self.

      I will curse Microsoft with you.

  18. I meant to share this earlier. Ah, well...no better time...

     

  19. Happy Yule, one and all; may your chocolates be warm, and your soups hearty.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yay for Yule! *sprinkles festive fairydust about*

  20. So, yeah, my interests are obviously, very diversified.

    Heh, but even dearest love @Kayzee would give me nerd cred for this...

     

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      You get the cred but you also get:

    2. That One NPC

      That One NPC

      Final Fantasy is more mainstream than ever before, though. Only men tend to find FF nerdy now. The series is very popular among females.

  21. I love rhythm gaming but have depth perception issues.

    Yeah.
    I love working on my gamedev projects but deal with constant burnout. Yup.

    I know the cause of the latter problem, but a solution? Nope.

    1. ElCodes

      ElCodes

      I feel your pain on the burnout...

  22. Ah, yeah, I slept for the feast of gluttony. I ate pillow.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Awww, you didn't have anything? I didn't really either but I had a big meal a week ago so I am okay.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, I mean, I had a little bit of food at some point, but like, big feast plates? Nah, no thanks.
      Most meals, I eat out of a bowl.

  23. Finally have a wired internet connection again. Is it worth the extra cost? We'll see, Cox.

    1. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Woo nice, hope it serves you well!

    2. That One NPC

      That One NPC

      Depends entirely on the quality and strength of service being fed into the wire, vs just using a wire, sadly.

  24. Well, that settles it.
    I'll never switch to Google for anything. I'll use MEGA instead.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      In b4 mega does something stupid to earn your ire too!

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah, I know...

    3. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Yeah, all services of that type like to flip tables upside down from time to time, heh.

  25. I started a new game project.
    Why?
    Ramsey has become difficult to work on because of many reasons, most of them involving not being able/allowed to focus.

    Worry not; I will still develop Ramsey, I just need to do something less involved.

    1. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Been there, I too, have used the "Start a New Game Project" skill multiple times
