    Holy Moly!  They are actually finally officially released a version of Seiken Densetsu 3/Secret of Mana 2 in English (called Trials of Mana now apparently)? What's next? An official English version of Mother 3? Who knows? I mean, now that Reggie has retired he isn't around to throw fireballs at people for asking.
     
    Too bad everyone who cared probobly already played the unofficial version to death and moved on. Maybe I will pick up the remake they are making? I would like to see if they fixed any of the many many issues the original game had!
     
    Can you imagine if they decided to remake Mother 3 like that? It would be funny given it was originally gonna be a 3D n64 game.

    Unrelated to RM, but I just completed a labor of love, one that took a lot of f*cking about with scaling parameters and such to get things to a point where boundary breaking and going under the woodwork would not be easily possible, and I had run into crashes many in the process, but it is done, and good grief...lolz
    Oh, what was this labor of love? I recreated Coastal Parklands in a less-than faithful way; it's a circuit (well circuit theme anyway) from Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. I used TMInfinity to do so (TMI is a patch that allows one to use the track editor to change parameters like scale, movement and rotation as well as use any piece from any available environment).
    Now, I am completely fried, and my brain is completely disorganized, lolz

    I think I am gonna add some difficulty options to my game or something. Before I kinda wanted to do old school roguelike full permadeath and still kinda want that to be an option, but i have played played dark souls a bunch recently and I like how it handles progression and death. So I was thinking maybe it would be better to just have you lose your items and progress to the next level instead of reseting your level completely... We will see!

    I was just experimenting with if statements that used if statements as conditions in ruby.
     
    Yes, you can do that.
     
    Only reason I was curious to see how well it worked was I sometimes want to do something like:
     
    unless ( if something     do_something   end or if somethingelse     do_somethingelse   end )   do_nothing end  
    Or in other words, I want something to happen if and only if nothing else happens. The usual way I end up doing this is like this:
     
    done = false if something do_something done = true end if somethingelse do_somethingelse done = true end do_nothing unless done But it sort of bugs me that I need a variable. Not a big deal, but I wonder if there is a better way?
     
    Note: The last line of an inner if statement needs to set a value for that kind of funny nested if statement to work.
     
    Edit: Oh, actually it wouldn't work the way I want due to short circuiting I think... I thought using 'or' rather then '||' would disable that but apparently not.

    Yep, this is depressing.
    But don't worry about me. I gave it my best with the skill I had. I'm sure that if I had the ability to figure the complexities out, I'd be able to make this happen, but ultimately, it's time for me to either get results, or move on.

    The former would require that those who know RGSS better than I do to aid, and that looks to be an impossibility unless I pay someone, which is also outside of my capabilities, so yeah. It's been fun, and I do enjoy working on stuff, but the goal post just keeps getting moved forward, and well out of reach alone.

    It's too much.

    Honestly it's kind of silly how unforgiving it can be. I mean, I get you wanna be hard game, but do you really have to let me dive right off into a pit if I am slightly at the wrong angle?
     
    You know in so called 'real life' people usually instinctively stop themselves from walking over edges. Just walking over one without thinking is something that mostly only happens in video games.

    Yes, people. I'm aware Kamikakushi sucks. We can't all defend our first piece of creative writing/gaming. (Even though, technically it's not my first game)   Besides, the game is loosely based off an actual horror story out there. One I didn't write. I am planning on cranking out an update that fixes all the errors and revises the dialogue, so I beg of you:   Please. Stop. Telling me. That I suck. Or you won't get anymore games from me.

    South Central Kansas has some strong storms going on, like as I type this.
    Two of these storms have been tornadic, and both storms are likely headed in my general direction. I already hear rumbles of thunder in the distance. There is no tornado/fallout shelter within a hundred foot sprint short of any of the houses across the street (unlikely shelter), so if the worst comes to worst, this may very well be my last post because these apartment buildings won't withstand tornadic winds, and even if I survive, my equipment will likely be damaged or taken by the storm.
    I mean, if I do survive, it'll be a LONG F*CKING TIME before I have internet access let alone hardware of my own.
    That's what happens when you're on disability payments.
    So, anyway, it's been fun.

    I'm a lesbian game developer with my lovely girlfriend. After helping each other with our projects, we formed ObakeNeko Works, an indie doujin circle of like-minded yuri and game-lovers. I couldn't have asked for a better girl by my side. Thank you all for supporting us this far. 👭

    Finally got some progress done on Kamikakushi 2.0. (Thanks to my GF for helping me fight through depression)
     
    So... What did I change?
    -Revised dialogue
    - Ramped difficulty for the chase scenes/music box puzzle
    - temporarily removed the doll puzzle (blame the depression)
    - added some flashbacks that further explain Hisame and Shin's backstory
    - replaced face graphics and sprites for Ueno and Yamazawa.
    - replaced the sprite for short-haired Yasu
    - added a book in the Omake Room that helps explain some mythos that wasn't clear.

    ^ attempted to sprite graphics for Hisame in some cutscenes using a base. More to come...
    - fixed up all of the face graphics
    - added a bit of developer's foresight in the True End route that some players could abuse in 1.0. Attempting to backtrack after the final chase scene will now net you an INSTANT Bad End. That's how I roll, kiddos.
     
    So what's next after Kamikakushi 2.0? Maybe helping my GF with her project? Or maybe I could try working on my other small-scale projects? Who knows.
