  1. RE: Audacity: One massive issue. That works fine if there are no loop points to consider (by the way I SUCK AT THIS ALREADY and have to guess a lot or use a calculator tool), but for most files, they have set loopstart and looplength values that will require adjusting after the changes are made, and honestly, that in itself is not ideal, since it also means that the game WILL TAKE UP MORE SPACE, and um, that I will pass on. Anyway, the slider thing you mentioned would be neat, sure, but if I'm going to have to make the workload more of a burden I'd rather use a drab menu with each selection and use Hime's Choice Options for managing that. Of course, that's sloppy, but, that's me going at this with my limited capabilities. By the way, I don't even know how to change where choice menus appear on the fly, so double drab emphasis.

    Character select script?

    I would also look into a Party Manager script as it might be more useful.
  3. @Kayzee Not exactly, no. The point is that if I set the title screen music to 110% pitch, it won't reflect this in the script as it is. The fix, I call future-proofing, to the end user/player, immersion enhancing. I figured that using a pair of variables rather than fixed numbers in place of volume and pitch would be all this needs, but not quite sure how to go about defining them, hence, why I asked in the first place. Of course, might it be necessary to do more than just that, then it's good that I am asking.
  4. So, what I wanted to do with the jukebox script was... filename, name of file, volume, pitch (only the first two are currently available for customization) That way, if the pitch or volume of any sound is altered in game and the script picks that up, it will pick it up with those settings rather than the default.
  5. Ninjamida made this jukebox script, and I love it, but there's one thing I really would love if I knew how to pull it off... Pitch and Volume settings. As is, if I wanted to have the selected sound file play back at the pitch/volume settings I have it set to, I'd have to edit the sound file and change a bunch of other things because, well... I mean, I could maybe try to set up some kind of variable like use 'vol' for volume and 'pit' for pitch, but then I'd have to set those up and I'm not quite sure how to do so... The other alternative is to simply set all music and sound to have default pitch and volume, but since I already use Yanfly's System Options, default volume already doesn't match up with the default volume settings of Yanfly's script...
  6. Well, this is certainly interesting. Sounds to me like one could use any number with this. 'return a.three?'
  7. Yeah, I should be active more, here and elsewhere, but as of late, crap like the thing ThatOneNPC found is flooding the online and offline society, and frankly, I don't blame them one bit for taking that step in moving on.

    I would too if, well, it would matter, and it really wouldn't. I still have no damn closure on a number of things, including my IP address being hacked and/or spoofed which led to some pretty stupid nonsense that I have no way of recovering from, short of cheating in some fashion (I wouldn't know what that would look like either). Probably wouldn't of happened at all if I had things like far better hardware, and access to internet safety software or whatever else, but that is one of those things I will not have unless I get donations and such.

    Yeah, about Epstein: publicly, definitely dead, but like Ian Watkins, is definitely still around...living a comfortable lifestyle in wait for the NWO that isn't going to come...

    I'm still making gamedev progress, but I'm struggling with this and that...

      Honestly, I pretty much agree with @That One NPC on all that. The only difference is, I don't think anywhere else is really any better. If you are looking for a lot of attention, I don't think you will find a lot of it in the RPG Maker community.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      @Kayzee Not really looking for attention (if I do ever complete a game I have means of spreading news around of such), just not wanting to deal with nonsense, especially since a lot of it comes from people who don't get the very simple fact that I am severely underprivileged...
       

      @That One NPC I actually like this place, even if it is pretty much a ghost forum, but I wouldn't be more active for anyone's sake other than my own, to be fair...

      I wouldn't really know what the other forums are like personally; I first came here then branched out, only to learn of the nonsense that occurred beyond my knowledge (I know a lot more now and it's both unsettling as well as infuriating), but I do know that the majority of the admin are twats that know only how to shoot first then ask questions later.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I really meant more 'encouragement' and not just 'attention'. Just looking for attention doesn't really help that much.

       

      Personally I am not a big forum user in general. The biggest reason why I never moved on to a bigger forum is mostly because I am comfortable here and don't feel like trying to fit in with a whole new community. Heck, I am basically just now tied at the second top user on the site of all time, only behind @Rikifive in terms of liked content it seems. Probably mostly thanks to you liking everything I do actually. XD

  8. Hmmm... $game_party.has_item?($data_items[1]||[2]||[3]||[4],false) Not sure if above is the actual script call being used, but using || between each ID might be the answer...?
  9. @AeghtyAteKees That is an interesting addition, though, $data_armors and $data_weapons are separate from $data_items as I recall. I wonder if @Kayzee would have better insight into this, as I am still quite the novice...
  10. I'm making slow progress with YD, my RM2K3 side project.

    I decided to take a break from VX Ace, because RGSS is taking a toll on me. Also, I really wanted to get deep into the mechanics of 2K3, as I had yet to even try to do so.

    "What does YD mean?"
    It's just the abbreviation for the working title. I'm not going to elaborate on that either.

    Also, I'm still healing from the extraction I had two weeks ago. In comparison, the previous two I had (simultaneous) healed in less than a week...

  11. Extractions SUUUUUUUCK!

     

    This last one I had a week ago today is still healing and I don't know if it'll ever close up! One thing is for certain though; it has essentially KILLED my creative abilities!

     

    I mean, I was able to finally finish another chapter of a short story series I've been writing (I'd share but it is NC-16 stuffs), but that's really about it.

    Most of the time I'm either lost in a dull fog from lack of sleep, playing a game, or doing nothing. ASS!!!

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Tooth extractions you mean? :O Those do indeed suck.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      They don't even use sutures...that would of made this a much easier process...

  12. @dailyminerals You're very welcome...
  13. @dailyminerals I think it is the following: Look for these in the script. I am not sure exactly how :fade effects it, but I think it has some involvement. FTR, 60 frames is one second at 60 FPS, the average that VX Ace games are made to run at. Change :full to 120 or 150 for two or two and a half seconds respectively.
  14. So yeah, I'll just go ahead and say it.


    The hardware I have sucks, I was ripped off, and I cannot do a damn thing about it.

    Wanna help? I accept donations via cash by mail and ONLY cash by mail. I should of never gotten this 2008 hunk of scrap, but that's how hindsight works, doesn't it?

    I got taken advantage of, and all I can do is deal with the consequences of the greed of others. And bitch about it because that's apparently something I'm also good at.

    As much as I appreciate @Kayzee offering me her older hardware, I need to get my own. Plus, I don't trust these f*cks at various shipping companies to not ship it completely broken and unusable. I'll simply find some way to build it myself, or I dunno, but it's only going to happen with your help...

      Do you accept Cryptocurrency?

      What do you need the hardware for? It's a PC, I am assuming? 

      I have a few laptops that are 5+ years old, none of the batteries work, so they are basically tethered like a desktop. If you can get a hard drive, I'd gladly give you one, depending on what you need it for (they are pretty weak.) Currently I have a few running for Bitcoin in the background, and a couple collecting dust on my shelf.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I would if I knew how to actually use it.

      Yeah, I have a desktop PC; it's basically just old trash. it runs, but was designed with Win XP in mind.

      What I need is upgrading. Better GPU, CPU, multiple display capabilities, so, yeah. Thanks for the offer.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    @Kayzee, is unfortunately, very much pinpoint accurate; Japan is definitely tight-knit in its' societal presentation and has been since the end of the Feudal/Medieval era. Sure, there's local 'melting pots' here and there where cultures are intermingling, but that's about as common as 'purple ribbon' bars/clubs in most of America (trans-friendly/inclusive; some places have more bars and clubs like this like Colorado and Nevada). Oh, and speaking of 'purple ribbon', that's still considered a 'taboo' thing in Japan, though usually not persecuted. Anyway, point is, if it isn't something that people want, well, it isn't going to happen (usually-sometimes there are things that happen anyway regardless of whether it was wanted or not). However, I do agree; there should be at least an attempt to have more variety, and try to be tasteful to boot. Not always easily done, but not impossible...I'd think, anyway...lol
  16. Three times in three damn months, there's been a severe weather event that was enough for the sirens to be sounded off, but Sunday, the Summer Solstice, at five in the morning, was the largest potential disaster. Had there been a viable threat, just like in the movie Twister (second Wakita scene), there would not of been enough advance warning, since by the time the sirens were going off, the storm was already here and/or passed by.

    Fact is, there's not a single f*cking storm/fallout shelter within a hundred foot sprint short of chancing it with one of the nearby houses (that's a 'NOPE' type RNG for me), the apartments themselves have no central room, the buildings are not built to withstand much more than sustained gale force winds (exterior hallway separating two apartments on each of two floors per building making essentially a very unsafe area), so there's not a lot I could do. I'd barricade my window as best as I could, hide under the mattress, and hope nothing falls on top of me, and that's if I had enough time to do even that. Otherwise, I'd just grab the sturdiest thing I could, shut my computer off, and duck.

    Yeah...
    My game project? Slow progress.

    That's it. @Kayzee, you're a really good friend. Thought I'd let you know...again...lol

      Yeah, and isn't it sad that I, a flighty fairy who can be super lazy, am the one who ends up helping you the most? XD

      Likely because...
      Corporate Assholes who only think of profits, and hackers who love to exploit those without the ability to protect themselves online have left me with this one avenue. That and, this place is pretty much dead.

      So, yeah...

  17. @WCouillard, @Kayzee, Yeep!
  18. Oooookay...
    Why is it that when I need a function to work, that I can't get it to work?
    I mean, how hard does it have to be!?
    Anyway, somehow, some damn way, Hime's Level Down State script refuses to work with Yanfly's Adjust Limits, giving me a nonsense NoMethod error that points to `<=` which tells me that the real issue lies elsewhere, but I'm not that knowledgeable about this to know exactly what to look at for troubleshooting.
    Of course, I've tried. Numerous occasions I have. I've even went as far as making a bugfix scriptlet that would incorporate certain aspects of Hime's script into how Adjust Limits checks for params, but I get the exact same nonsense error with or without it!!
    "Like, come ON with THIS!! Quit making it so damn hard to work with you!!!" I want to scream sometimes...
    The struggle and frustrations are very real...(wishing I knew about programming language long ago rather than more recently...)

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I am pretty sure a NoMethod error for <= is actually not nonsense at all... Remember Ruby uses duck typing and has methods for everything, so yeah, <= is in fact a method and is not defined for anything in witch the concept of 'less then' doesn't make sense. Like if you have 'nil <= 1' it will give that error. Likely something is trying to compare a variable that hasn't been set yet with something.

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I've found it very difficult to pinpoint nil issues since I don't understand it well enough.

       

      That said, I've decided to go about it a different way, and have chosen to focus on other functions.

      Ultimately, there's even more to add before I come to a finished demo state, but I think I have this now...
      I hope...lol

  19. a=actor.equips; b=$data_armors[304..324]; a.include?(b) Try that, see if it works. Also: a=actor.equips; b=actor.equips.atype_id[*]; a.include?(b) [*] : Change this to the proper Armor type ID. Keep the brackets!
  20. @WCouillard Event Command Change HP has your back. Just set that to +80 for the whole party and you're set.

    Building a Free Library of Images for Everyone

    Coin sounds. Like, when coins fall on various surfaces, and so on.
  22. I had a tiny query in the Discord server, one I figured would take less than two minutes for someone with greater knowledge about RGSS3 to answer than I could figure out.
    Really, cold shoulder stings, so now I'm doubling down on this.
    I can conditional check just fine for the player's region ID, but every attempt thus far at checking against event region ID's has given me invalid syntax errors (I know they're invalid due to where the error points to).
    What is my goal? Well, let us just say that too many games allow player-event interactions when the player and event are on different areas but are also horizontally aligned (i.e. player on cliff and event below cliff). I want that NOT TO HAPPEN, dig?
    Of course ya do.

      Thing is, I might be getting a hang of this, to a fashion. Of course, sometimes I still believe that when something works, it is truly just me getting lucky, lolz

  23. Alright, so here's the skivvy on lost scripts. It even says in most of them so link back to the original thread, don't repost, etcetera, but in times like these, when Dropbox decides to kill a download for their asinine reasons, or if a script writer decides to f*ck off their project, or whatever, there has to be a workaround. The Wayback Machine (https://archive.org) is awesome, but not foolproof (since it is user-driven and must be used by the people wanting to save these webpages for later perusing), so, is there an alternate method? Yes, yes there is; you take these lost snippets of wonderful and useful information... And group them all together, which I am doing here. I will add to this list as I come across dead script links, and (hopefully) find ways around them. I will also repoint to the original post, if possible. (Don't expect this though.) Anyway, and without further ado...Scripts! Mr.Bubblewand - Blood Magic (victim of Asinine Dropbox) And that is all for now; adding more as I become aware of more lost scripts

    Pictures in VX Ace

    Yeah. 544x416 is VX Ace's default resolution. It technically can scale down or up, though there's a soft-coded 'limit' of 640x480. However, with pictures, the display is not coded particularly well from what I understand, so there's going to be issues no matter what. It would be best to actually use smaller images (like ninety to ninety-five percent of the game window resolution), and then do a bit of zooming in to make them fit better. Even then, it won't be perfect. As far as getting VX Ace to have fullscreen resolution at the resolution of the display, not sure how easily it could be done...
