    @Kargan3033 It's cool. Take your time getting well, and completing tasks. Never rush it.
  2. You're usually on Steam almost daily, but I haven't seen ya in almost a week now.

    I kinda miss that...lol

      Hehe, been kinda recovering from pulling a muscle, so I havn't been  doing much on my game or such lately. Would have healed it with magic but it happened when I was in my human disguise, so it's a lot more tricky to deal with.

      Happened to my leg while shopping a while back.

      Of course, it wasn't until the next day that I felt the effects of it.

  3. To those of you planning on getting cell phone service: Don't get Cricket; they'll screw you over with garbage plans and garbage phones.
    Double Whammies for those that are the recipient of these and had no say in the matter (yeah like me).

      Cellphones are overrated if you ask me, but sometimes people need them. 😕

      Yeah, I agree.

      But this one was just given to me without me having a say in the matter.
      I really only used it as a media device, and of course, after my computer was cyber-attacked it did replace my computer until I got it back up and running. Even still, I never wanted it.

    You can simply make the name or letter an icon. As far as making it display text, it would require editing the script. Since the OP has long since vanished, someone else would likely have to do it. I'm no expert at this, so I would defer to another who would be better suited. You can do this with variables and do the math yourself, really. Complicated? Sure. But really, that's half the fun in gamedev, unless you're the likes of Blizzard/Activision, or an asset flipper. Also, I'll note that with this script, in order to change the number of currencies from eleven to something like four or five, you have to change certain working parts. Under Class Game_Party in this script, there's a bit of code that has the following: Notice the following line: 11.times { |i| You'll want to change the number in 11.times to the number of currencies you wish to use, as well as removing/commenting out the unused currencies (commenting out is better from experience).So, for just needing five currencies, one would change that line to 5.times, and comment out currencies 5 - 10, because the currencies are 0-based; 0,1,2,3,4 should be what is left, and then boom, only those five currencies will be displayed. I'll also take this time to insert an add-on for this script, which does require a script I wrote myself. Then, my own script which goes above both Calestian's script and the add-on I made. And with that, I hope that settles the one issue someone else had a while back.
  7. I'm just curious to know if anyone got in on the RPG Dev Humble Bundle; I definitely saw interest in some of the items in the bundle but I didn't hear much talk about it so it makes me wonder if it had anything to it.

  8. Back home, those that ran businesses that did not cooperate with the community system of equality and reputability, would have their businesses torn to the ground. Literally, and I've seen it happen. Even large businesses are not immune to this, and so when the time comes for society to return to their Anarchist roots, large businesses that violate the basics of equality and reputability will be torn down just the same. That will include pretty much all of Silicon Valley. These businesses have far too much power, and should not be allowed to exist in their current state. Pretty much all there is to say, but I know at least one person will have something to say in retort.
  9. I honestly could do without all the nonsense this time of year brings. It is far more depressing than anything else. But...I'll deal with it, and just look forward to when it won't mean what everyone thinks it means, and no one is stupid about it. Religion, neo capitalism, political stupidity, feh. Society needs none of it. There, I've said it. It's all a burden.



    As am I, apparently. Ah well...

      I like this time of year myself. Yuletide is fun! I think most of the time that stuff is only a burden if you let it become a burden. There are times where those things become bother some, but most of the time they are completely irrelevant to most people's lives. It's all fluff that dosn't matter in the slightest. Sigh, but too many humans believe things do matter and try and force it to matter to everyone else too.

  12. Yes, in the Discord, I'm the one with the moniker '12 DAYS OF SHITSMAS'.

    It's an AVGN reference to a specific set of videos, which will be four years old this year.

  17. Being honest, being kind, you name it, it offends at least one person, and it's one thing if said person is just an otherwise nameless individual who you'd likely never run into again, but it is so much more disruptive when it is a person of trust or worse, someone you care about. And yet...there's nothing to be done about it, it just is, and that's one reason why Earth is not a place where I belong; I was not raised to handle such cognitive dissonance, or to be more clear, I wasn't given the chance to learn how to handle it, which is why my imprisonment in this mortal flesh is all the more a crime against existence as a whole, because it puts so much out of balance, nothing is as it is supposed to be. Of course, I expect no one to understand this, so I won't explain further. I know one individual will challenge my viewpoint, and even if her heart is in the right place, ultimately, it only serves to invalidate my experiences, which is something I deal with far too much to even be remotely fair or valid. There are many more reasons, many, many more, but thinking about all this, knowing that all that matters is I'm here and actively being punished for reasons unknown, and I'm just a kid ffs (or I was when my imprisonment was forced upon me), forced to live as an adult would, and it is throwing me for a tizzy loop. It's hurting me, and releasing myself is most of what I am able to think about lately. I hate it here, I'm sick of the lying, cheating nonsense, and all I want is for it to end. Am I selfish for wanting this to just be over? I don't care what you think, I know the answer is no, and the reason why the answer is no is because unexplained, unearned, undeserved punishment like this, by default, indemnifies me against all ill intent unless I do something to earn this punishment, and I have done no such thing, which I also know to be true. In the eyes of mortals, I am the product of 'sin', but in truth, they have burdened me with their own misconduct, and therefore, I have no blame to claim. I am not a mortal, just imprisoned inside mortal flesh. I should also note that I am also not bound by any laws made by mortals.
  18. Damn, it's cold outside. My room is also cold as a result of the furnace not working properly. it really affects me when I sleep or when I go out of my room...

    it doesn't help with creative flow either, but even still, I've managed little bursts of progress here and there.

    Finally, I get to make another entry here (I only go for even numbers). seven hundred and thirty six
  22. So, yeah, I've been on a mean roller coaster of emotions as of recent, but the fact remains that life is not good and slowly becoming unlivable. As sad as that is, I've found that anything I do to attempt to make any sort of changes at all, gets thwarted by everything and everyone, aware or unaware, the blame, cause and effect is evenly spread. I could talk about how things could be better, and all that, but I won't because none of it matters. All that matters is diving into the same debauchery and living by it like everyone else, regardless of how it clashes with you. The alternative is undeserved suffering at the hands of the greedy and avaricious. Of course, you know me, I take the alternative path and that won't change, but what will, is how I react to the way I am treated because I have reached my limit on how much nonsense I can handle, and I will be fair, but going forward, those that treat me like garbage, will receive the same, and if those that treat me like garbage just happen to be 'perceived authority figures', I will add an extra layer of shame upon them. This applies online and offline. Treat me like an equal, be decent, honest and fair, all square. I won't change my views on any given thing, but there are things I will be more vocal about, especially if it falls under avarice, hate, and/or greed. I am a disabled person, my income is fixed and very limited, so yes, I do accept donations, but because of the absolute f*ckery by the likes of PayPal and GoFundMe, the donations are to be cash by mail only. I've received a couple of these, and it works just fine, just slip the money in a letter or something. Next, I want to talk about gamedev in general. One of my main issues is that so much garbage goes on, that it really affects my creative flow, and as of recent, I've had many more periods of major creative stagnation than I've ever had in a year. That tells me that something needs to change, but the issue lies once again in my finances which are lackluster at best and not even in my control, for reasons unknown and likely invalid. "Why don't you get a job?" I've tried; I don't have the ability to be patient and submit applications on a cycle, my mind doesn't work that way. "Why don't you change these things, improve them?" That's as realistic as me growing a second set of arms, period. "You're just being negative." You be positive, I'll be realistic. (Thanks, Uncle Frank. -Home Alone) "(Transphobic/homophobic nonsense)" I look better in a dress than you do, you jealous or something? I can bind you to a chair and make you a woman... Yep, these are FAQ. Another thing about gamedev is that it is never something I can just get into; I do have to be in a certain mindset to get into it, usually the 'inspired' mindset. Sometimes, gaming helps me get there, sometimes not. I'm also one person, and yes, figuring everything out on my own is not possible. I use assets and ask for help because this is necessary, period. But it's not necessary to put a price tag on said assistance, and that is where I stand on that. If one says they'll assist but later on require some sort of recompense, that is an absolute deal breaker, and I keep 100% of everything, assets, or otherwise because that's the price of lying to me. But that's only applicable in cases where no initial cost was agreed upon, however, in a case where one changes their agreed upon cost to something that is unrealistic, it will end in the same, I will keep everything because I was lied to. It's one thing if it is reasonable, but knowingly breaching your word and harming the other/s involved nullifies the agreement in full, and the one causing the harm gets nothing. Period. So, anyway...enough about that. I'm going to end this with a little factoid. You can run RM in Safe Mode (it looks like garbage but that's how it is), and all one has to do is enable audio. it requires adding keys to the registry, but after that, a reboot into safe mode and audio is enabled. RM will run after that. You can play games even, test play, whatever, as long as none of what you program in requires Direct X, because there's no way that I know of, to enable that. Yeah, that's about it. I know very few will read this (I expect as much because I'm just a trans chick drama queen to most people e.e), but it's better than holding everything in... Well, I think so anyway. Until next time. Maybe.
  23. Hmmm... Well... Perception of what fairness is and what it actually is, has not truly been in sync for some time. I mean, tell me if I am wrong, but if not being deceitful and telling things like it is, holding others accountable for their misdeeds, and so on isn't fair, then I don't know what is. If that is so, then falling from a high point really doesn't seem so bad because it's better than worthlessness. But I agree with toxic society being a pervasive thing. Hmmm... I'm exhausted, I'm frustrated, I hurt and I suffer, and what the Hell for. What did I do in the first place. Or what did I not do. No answers means I suffer without reason, and that enrages me even more.
  24. I guess I make focus and emphasis hard to distinguish between, don't I? Not that it makes much difference, the end result is the same; no one takes accountability for their misconduct, and burdens others with it instead. It's one thing when kids do it because they've not learned how to be accountable and/or are being stupid with their siblings/relatives, it's another when it becomes a scapegoating scheme later on in life. Get caught, blame someone else/burden them, and so on. If there's one thing that makes me go through a mood roller coaster, it's thinking about these things, but honesty and fairness are ingrained in me so it's not something I can just readily ignore (or I can try but that never ends well). I can certainly see where the mood roller coaster took me for a few loop-de-loops in my previous reply. And that's how it goes, and nope, you still can't hear it.
  25. @Kayzee It would be better if at least one of these issues were much less of a threat to life and limb, like if living expenses weren't so high and/or my financial resources went further than they do now (I know there are ways to make this happen but I've little to no expertise in this area). Meh. It's more like one of those puzzles that requires an item that had to be discarded long before reaching said puzzle because it was weighing me down. Of course, said item, when translating this scenario to what I deal with now, is not a physical item, but one that requires a physical currency to modify (or for the system in which it is attached to collapse). Yes, I speak of 'legal' identity change; it'll be no problem once government collapses because then it'll be a simple matter of saying who I am and that's all that needs to be. Other than that, it's a bunch of BS hoops to jump through and money I don't have. Honestly, I'm breaking from the prison I am inside of far more often these days, but the fact that I wake up and am still trapped within day after day, it's no damn wonder why I have no tolerance left for stupidity. I have no practical purpose here, other than to be a punch dummy for others, physical/mental/emotional. It's no different than incarceration, really, and it disgusts me to the very core. If only I had leverage in some fashion, I'd try to free myself... It can be done, when one has full access to their free will. I do not...well...it is more like I have full access to my free will but not the ability to use it in any possible way, just a select few ways, and I hate it. I hate being a victim of mortal, societal misconduct, like it's my damn fault, that people believe the misconduct of my ancestors is mine to carry. Whomever believes that, deserves to be erased; it is absolute BS. And yet...and yet...here I sit, typing out this instead of acting on it. Again, my inaction, or inability to act, is what keeps me here. The finger is pointed at me, but in reality, the finger is to be pointed at itself. The blame is not mine, the responsibility is not mine, and those who would claim otherwise deserve to be erased. No, I'm not mad, I'm livid. Calm, but livid. I have menial means of making sure further intrusions do not occur without punishment, and I will not hesitate to use them if the need arises. Until then, I need a Saga. What's the Saga? It's...Songs for the Deaf; you can't even hear it.
