    "all in one" inventory

    Yeah; it'll create item categories based on the entries in VE_MENU_LIST

    "all in one" inventory

    Yes, one has to set up specific item types for use in battle. The script is not really plug and use, it requires configuration. Now, one can set it up so that all the items show up in one menu chunk but only certain items can be used in battle because items can be assigned multiple tags.

    "all in one" inventory

    Yes. One can utilize Victor Sant's Item Command script (I don't have a link on hand), though it does require some tinkering with to have it so that all items appear as you wish them to (I have done this myself). I will note that they will appear by type groups (items/armors/weapons) if you use this script. I would actually recommend separating items from important items still.

    Damage Formulas RPGVXA

    Yes, variables can be used in damage formulas. You really should instead of tripling then halving a stat, just do this: (stat * 1.5) It literally does the same but with more stable results. I know; I've had the experience of having the damage formula return some really weird, unfavorable results in the past. ( a.agi *3 ) / 2 + a.atk * 2 - b.def * 2 Revision: (a.agi*1.5+(a.atk*2))-b.def*2 Yeah; one can omit spaces but one must always utilize both sides of a decimal point (0.5 is the rule but .5 will have Ruby throw a fit). Success % is used for skills that have a chance of executing, not in success in the executed task/s (unless the skill is set to 'always hit' rather than 'physical/magical'). Little tip: Use this in a damage formula: eval($data_X[id].note) Where X is any database with an editable notebox like states, skills, items, weapons, armors, actors, classes, etcetera, and ID is the corresponding ID, for a nigh unlimited amount of space for your damage formula. That said, the notebox must contain absolutely nothing else in it. It cannot be used for anything else. I actually picked this up from digging through the non-archived files of one of my favorite RM games.
  5. So, this PC isn't capable of running everything I have in my Steam library.

    Aside from that, I have obstacles many (well one big one anyway) that are keeping me from transferring everything from my older PC to my new one.

    Main issue: This newer PC has room for only one HDD, and the one installed has a capacity of ~500 GB. MY older PC has a 1 TB HDD and has more than 600 GB of that reserved for use, most of that full. I also was not a dummy like last time; I made a larger partition for [C:\] and thus, have even less space for anything on my newer PC.

    Yeah; I'm not gonna be able to get any upgrades for this PC anytime soon, if ever. The joys of having to buy from brick and mortar stores and not really being able to, because of BS reasons.

    Oh trust me, I prefer in-person shopping; I wish online shopping would crash and burn.

    I'd of made this a blog, but...

    No one reads those, except for a few people. More people read these.

      My lappy toppy only has like 458 GB of which I have 398 GB used. I have a huge external USB HDD for backup and old stuff though.

    2. PhoenixSoul


      I've been needing to get an external HDD for that kind of thing for a while.
      Again, it's on the super-long list of unmet needs.

  6. This would require scripting. I'm sure there's a way to iterate an array of Skill IDs in a random choice, but that would be beyond my level of skill with Ruby/RGSS.
  7. The video card in my new PC is an AMD Radeon 7000.

    1. Kayzee


      You got a new PC? 😮

    2. PhoenixSoul


      New to me, anyway.

      It's dated, but better.

      A DELL Optiplex 7040.

    3. Kayzee


      Yay! :3

  8. Yes; my pfp is made with MV angled face generator parts.

    Multiple Currencies

  10. Dearest love @Kayzee mentioned Gaia Online, and it had me thinking about another online forum, that was more like IMVU, called frenzoo. Anyone here ever hear about that one, or better yet, were you ever a part of that particular site, before it went mobile?

    1. Kayzee


      Nope, never heard of that one. Was it like a zoo of frens?

    2. PhoenixSoul


      Honestly, I dunno much about how the name came to be, but it ran off a primitive version of Unity 3D.
      The 3D animated avatars were cool, though.

  11. I myself have tried my hand at making furniture from pixel scratch...

    Having terrible depth perception makes all efforts look literally flat. I only ever managed to make a decent looking, 2D table that would look okay in a side-scroller... 🤣

      I know the feeling, I'm no pixel artist pro either. Keep at it!

    3. Aslanemperor


      I feel this so deeply!

    4. PhoenixSoul


      If I still had those efforts and that table (lost when an HDD decided to corrupt itself), I could possibly maybe use them in a PGE-based game like SMBX.

    Easy chairs and sofas

    Aye. Dé rìen!

    Easy chairs and sofas

    Celianna's resources might have what you need (specifically speaking about the diagonal furniture). If not, I do believe her furniture can be modified to your needs.

    How to show credits during gameplay

    Also, and worse, potential memory leaks/other issues.

    How to show credits during gameplay

    PaintDotNet is another great free image editing tool. One can also do this with Pictures. Just be sure to import the scriptlet that forces the game to delete the pictures when [Erase Picture] is used, rather than having it draw a blank 32*32 px thing, or else, LAG!

    Get currently selected actor in equipment menu?

    Yes! There is! I actually had to figure this out for equipment-related stuffs too. So, here's something I cobbled together...
  17. I'm glad that I know of the resource blacklist. I wish I would of known about it long ago.

    Even still, there's one problem; where can I find substitutions for the icons? I looked and found squat.

    But yeah...just me prattling on...

      It's this one here, and I'm just glad none of the DLC I bought is on it, and I hope it stays that way.

    3. Animebryan


      It's a real shame that the 'Ultimate Icon Set' is included. You almost didn't need anything else with all it had to offer, but it was also an unorganized mess as well, to the point where I originally planned to clean it up, add recolors & call it 'Ultimate Icon Set 2.0'. But when I went to look for it, it was gone. Now we all know why. Also, you never have to worry about DLCs being plagiarized. I'm sure those submitted works are checked first before being put up on the store, lest Degica Komodo risk being an even bigger embarrassment than they already are. 

    4. That One NPC

      That One NPC

      Avery's iconset is the only viable replacement for the "Big Iconset", and does not allow commercial usages without expressed permission.


      This makes it very rough, and one is faced with the task of editing the RTP sheet to produce what they need.

    Using a cellphone as a tool?

    Be better asked in the MZ thread.
  19. I have difficulties with Executive Functioning. It affects so many things...

    So, when I bought RMXP for Zelda, it felt good because I wasn't judged or criticized for it.

    I was thanked, yes, but just that, well, I was given the "you didn't have to" speech, but I did it because I wanted to, and it's fine; she's entitled to know why I did that, but I didn't have/need a reason.

    I just don't do well with doing things and getting criticized unfairly. It's unnecessary stress.

      Thank you, Amy ❤️

    3. PhoenixSoul


      Oh no, @Kayzee, mon amour; you should hear the crap I have to put up with from the neurotypical brainwashed fools I live with, and by comparison, you're an intellectual field of flowers rather than a minefield of stupid.

      Anyway, executive functioning is...hard to explain. Trouble making decisions and doing things, is part of it. It's a big web of things that all involve processing everything and making a quick response to, like everyone expects. "RESPOND NOW." (when I'm still processing a lot of things all at once)

      You're very welcome, @Fjoraselda, my dear.

    4. Kayzee


      Intellectual field of flowers huh? I guess it's true! How else am I going to lure you in to my devious trap? :3 


      Maybe it's cause you actually think rather then just react. :3

  20. Is it just me, or do the MZ graphics, at least for faces, have that older anime look to them, like from Gundam, or similar?

    It was an observation I made when I was making some character art with MZ pieces in GCH PE.

    ace Questions Regarding Resource Licenses

    Yeah; the milktoast EULA one gets with pretty much any asset explains precious little. In fact, it often doesn't explain any of the applicable terms for that particular asset (this is so with some of the more recent ones like VX Ace's Shopping Spree to name one), so there's often no clear way of knowing unless the terms are clearly stated elsewhere (in the case of the previously aforementioned asset they are stated on the Steam store page which is a good thing because otherwise there's only the milktoast EULA and the graphics).
  22. I had the sudden idea of trying to make a 'truce' function, and it's not going well.
    Dammit, Undertale...lolz

    1. Kayzee


      I kinda did something like that as part of an old game idea that didn't really end up going anywhere. Still like the idea of the game and some of the systems I came up for it were kinda neat, but it was a bit too ambitious and I never figured out a good way to do NPC/NPC interaction.

  23. I'll be sure to have a look. Wind at your sails! May the Divines guide you.
  24. I recently had a dream flash sequence where the Doom Slayer took the SSG to the back of Voldemort and pulled the trigger.

    Not gonna lie, that's pretty awesome. BLAM!

    Script Bugs I've been having.

    May we have a complete list of installed scripts, including all the defaults?
