  1. Preservation == good.
    At some point, the entire mega-industry will collapse and then what? Those of us who preserved will be able to carry the torch, whilst those of us who spent our resources to the last hour on the mega-industry and didn't preserve anything, will just be ZORCHED.

    Heh-ha; made a CHEX QUEST pun. lolz

      I wasn't sure I had anything to add to this, but I was thinking about something today. I got the new SaGa Frontier Remastered a little while ago and while remasters and remakes are generally not a bad thing, I think it's sometimes easy to forget that for every new re-release of an older game that manages to come out, there are 5-10 games that are still forgotten that will likely never see another release for one reason or another. So I just wanted to add that.

  2. It's because of this, we lose valuable resources. Just remember that. I wish I could help, but as late as I was to the scene, I'm stuck at the same max res of 640*480, and to be honest, I don't think this Intel Celeron could handle much more than that, lolz I wish ya luck in finding it.

    Entry 016: Novara; Rachel.

    Novara. Rachel. I've seen/heard these names a few times in sleep visions I've recently had. The former is written on a trader's map, written in a font different from any of the other scratchings on it, as if it were part of the original map from before the trader acquired it. In my native tongue, Novara has a few meanings, most often referring to 'beginning and end', and as a name, feminine, rarely used because it has the same connotations. Not sure, if the name on the map is the cartographer, name of the region, or name of the planet, but the map in question is of my homeland and in part, surrounding areas. The scratchings on the map indicated that my hometown is a favorite of this particular trader. I came across the map early one sleepless morning, just as some of the people that barter their goods in the market square were setting up their shops. Likely, the map wasn't discarded purposely, but I never found the owner. Yeah; I know not, the name of my home world, or the names of many areas. I in fact do not know much about the geography of my home world, as I've never actually studied it. Of course, if I did want to travel abroad for a living I'd have to, or would need a navigator who is in the trade. --- Rachel. (Rah-shell) I've heard this person's name a few times in my sleep visions. I've come to realize that, the person who this mortal flesh belongs to, goes by that name. Beyond that, I know nothing else, not even he/she/they/ana-kata. What it means, though, is that, the person who this mortal flesh belongs to, also does not go by what it says on any 'legal' document. Of course, we all know that #LegalIdentityIsSuperficial.

    Entry 016: Novara; Rachel.

    I was wondering if that would actually catch your attention, lolz But seriously, I just used it in place of 'etcetera'. We're in agreement, but you sound just like my mom; that is exactly what she would say. What I mean by 'legal' identity being superficial is that anything on paper can be erased/rewritten/forgotten, therefore, inferior. What makes a hashtag 'fake' though? Do ya have answer for that, mon amour?

    Multiple Enemy Health Bars

    Oh yeah; I remember this exact feature from Dissidia Final Fantasy, just the first iteration was like that. Can't say that I know of any scripts that would be of any use, but yeah, I know what you're talking about.

    Creating a (Hopefully) Simple New Game Plus Feature

    I think the number of save files is nigh unlimited (however many 32 bits can hold I imagine). I know I once expanded the number of save files to over a hundred. Kinda dumb but yeah. lolz

    Creating a (Hopefully) Simple New Game Plus Feature

    @Zen Blood Oh yeah; @Kayzee would definitely know a lot about the Marshal dump system. I've looked into it a bit, but it's a lot for me still.
  12. I made a concept map where a lot of lore and events and many things will fleshed out. I'm glad I got that Shopping Spree asset pack.
    @Kayzee, mon amour, I know what you're gonna say, but yeah; the graphics within actually really completes the set for what I needed.
    So, the Abandoned Mall is done, and it took a lot of time and effort, but worth it. It's a big map though, so it's not gonna be seen by the player. I only intend to have ideas flow through it.

      I definitely know what that's like. I also know very well, the fog of pink. You know, where you're constantly thinking about certain things...

    Creating a (Hopefully) Simple New Game Plus Feature

    false unless true seems to be a point of contention, however, it might be solvable if you have it look for $newgameplus_y in Game_Load, or something. Maybe, @roninator2 could be of help here. I'd see if Kayzee could help, but she's rarely around anymore...hence I didn't even tag her...
  14. Well, I've been plugging away here and there at gamedev.

    I've run into a couple coding issues, one of them is a weird one that I thought I had dealt with a long time ago and when I look at the syntax, the syntax does not seem to be inconsistent in any way, so I don't know what the deal is, but I do know that it makes it so that the third and fourth party members cannot equip weapons in the second weapon slot if nothing is in the first weapon slot (some odd nilclass error that I cannot figure out). The other issue lies in the Yanfly equip screen, and changing the stats so that TP, Attack Speed, and the two XStats also show, but I can't get that to work at all. I managed to get only parts of that drawn.

    1. Kayzee


      I'm telling you man, dual wielding is buggy as heck. But if it's looking at the first weapon slot for something and can't find it it will probably give a nilclass error you know. Also, pretty sure attack speed is only really calculated after a skill is chosen because it's based on what skill you use.

    2. PhoenixSoul


      You might recall this bit of syntax:

      a = $game_party.members[2].equips[2] && $game_party.members[2].equips[2].wtype_id; b = $game_party.members[2].equips[2]; [1,4,5,7].include?(a) && b


      It only throws a nil class error in that instance for members[2] and members[3] and it does it only for weapons, not even armor. Yeah; equips[2] is weapon slot 2 because slot 0 is Skill Card.

      I know that Attack Speed is only applied after a skill is chosen, but I have a lot of passive things that affect it and thus have included it in the standard stats, or am trying lolz

      I'm not sure that it's the syntax that throws the error, but something else. What, I cannot be certain.

    3. PhoenixSoul


      I've since, figured out a workaround that involves disabling unequipping of weapons and forcing the equipping of a 'barehand weapon' that has little influence on stats. It's not what I was looking for but it works.

    How to Create RPG Battle Themes

    Fruity Loops Studio. lolz
  16. 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

    Open spaces vs multiple authored paths

    My preference is having a mesh of the two, where there is some set path, but not a narrow, winding roadway. However, that is in a general sense; it ultimately does depend on the game I'm making. Some RPG types don't go well with open exploration, some do. Some require it, even, but even then, some players will not even bother.
  18. It would either have to exist on the user's local storage or be downloaded; both require external coding... I get the feeling that you don't care about your playerbase... I think that's the whole point... Oh, you're a tease, alright...

    Dune's Island - A Free Video Learning Series

    The Dr. Brain games come to mind. Getting those to run on modern systems, good luck; Dr. Brain 3 runs like pffft on Windows 7 and can't be arsed to run in windowed mode.

    Auto Save / Auto Load

    Hmmm... Could this be done with custom data? Like say, using Aditkuzmiko's Custom Data script? To have it look for some specific dataset that is specific per file, or something like that? Eh, I'm just spitballing here, but, if anything helps, I'm trying. Heh-ha.

    Auto Save / Auto Load

    I guess loading the last savefile index would not work as intended...

    Auto Save / Auto Load

    I'm just curious; what happens if one were to make it so that auto_load or continue_load were allowed even if there were more than one game save? Would it try to load the data from all game saves?
