      Oh, wait, you're being serious?
      Everyone should have long hair, lolz

    3. AutumnAbsinthe

      AutumnAbsinthe

      @Kayzee Yes. Yes it is. Mostly because of my hair. XD

      @PhoenixSoul I've never been able to take care of my hair when it's long, so I usually do that thing with the buzzcut sides and the floppy bit on top. Easy to make it look neat, easy to make it look nice, easy to make it look punk, etc.

    4. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Ah, I see. I guess I'm used to most people I know having long hair, so it kinda grew on me, so to speak.

  2. Made Frau Doktor on a maker again, this time with pride flags, because absolutely no sona of mine will ever be cishet! Mostly because I'm not cishet.

     

    We got ace, trans, genderfluid, (no pride flag, just a neat background), general LGBT+ and bi.

     

    She/he/they/it

     

    Fun fact: Her dress violates the Geneva Convention.

     

    EDIT: The maker didn't have an option for her orange eye unfortunately.

      Yeah. It's why I watch more stuff on YouTube than on TV.

      Definitely. Telly's too serious. People take it too seriously. When they don't, it's the same joke every other show in the genre's made. Youtube's got actual variety and humour.

  7. Ah, I dated a narcissist who emotionally manipulated me.

      @PhoenixSoul, if you were really a narcissist I would think that you would have stopped being my friend by now given some of the critical things I have said to you. As I understand it (which may be wrong), narcissism is basically when people elevate themselves over everyone else and try and put themselves in a bubble so they don't have to accept their own flaws. There are probobly different levels to that, but true narcissists I think just cannot abide anything that challenges them. Narcissists throw fits and lash out the more you challenge that bubble, they become more antagonistic the more you push them on anything.

       

      Now a lot of non-Narcissists might react that way too, especially if they have been hurt by something before I think. I am not saying my behavior is justified or anything. But regardless, it seems pretty clear to me that you don't do that. When i push you a bit I don't get yelled at and called names. You will argue with me sure, but in the end you usually see my point even if you don't agree. I doubt a true narcissist would ever let me get as close as I have. I mean, I do tend to be careful about choosing my words and I am probobly one of the few people willing to engage with you on some topics on a level that doesn't automatically dismiss some things that are important to you, but some other people *cough*thatonenpc*cough* have for sure not been as accepting. Not saying they were narcissistic though, I really don't like to assume that about anyone and I do kinda bate people sometimes.

       

      Anyway I suspect that it's actually really easy for people to fall into a kind of narcissistic pattern of thinking without really meaning to. I know I can get close sometimes! In the end though I always try to remember that I am mostly just playing a big game with the world, and games are meant to be fun, even when losing! I kind of want to blame the Curse of Greyface for all of this honestly. Narcissists seem like the ultimate sore losers who just can't enjoy the game unless they are winning.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah. I think narcissism via proxy ignorance is definitely a problem, but it's also not the fault of the individual, not necessarily anyway.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Like I have said before though, who's at fault doesn't really matter. What matters is: If is a problem that needs to be solved, people can be part of that problem or they can be part of the solution. Or of course be completely uninvolved, but sometimes being uninvolved is part of the problem...

      Hehe, seeing that I couldn't help but reply to that comment. My reply was:

       

      I can imagine a guy actually saying this to the lady in question, then the lady stopping and looking at him with an eye roll and saying: "Oh yes, quite right. I suppose I got too caught up in the foreplay. Do forgive me, I will shut up and just get to the killing you part then. Bah, you guys are all the same. It's always 'So when does the killing start?' or 'Just hurry up and stab me already!' or something like that. Can't a girl take the time for a nice romantic taunting of her victim?"

      Depending on my mood, gamedev music can differ between a playlist I have in Media Monkey, or one of the songs in my game project.

      I find songs that have no lyrics (or just backing lyrics) tend to boost my creative energy in a way that allows me to channel it.

      Like...this one:

      Please tell me you have seen the minus8 version. It's obviously the superior version of the video. Just uh... make sure you are someplace private before watching. It's technically SFW (surprising if you know who minus8 is I know), but has some provocative  twerking. Also lots and lots of references.

       

      Edit: Oh~! I almost forgot! Where is your medisona already? ...It's probobly annoying having me ask about it so much huh? Buuut... I figure I can get away with annoying you at least a little bit so... *pokes you with a stick* :P

      Yeah. There's an underlying reason why my game is free.

      I have no way of setting up online payments on itch.io which also means I can only get the stuff that's free there...

      Actually, I've not tested that particular formula. I think the syntax is valid as far as making sure that if the variables in question are at zero, to multiply by one instead, but I don't exactly have a reason to test it since it's just me being silly. lololololol

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Oh thank goodness, I thought you were actually going to use that formula. I mean, I guess it's not that bad, It just looks ludicrously overcomplicated.

       

      Kinda like... most of the stuff you try to do!

       

      *giggles and runs off*

       

      *... then comes back*

       

      Wait... Why am I teasing you for that? I do even more ludicrously overcomplicated stuff all the time!

      PhoenixSoul

      lolz
      It's me trying to actually focus on something creative, rather than on my symptoms...
      If I were to actually make a damage formula with a variable-based multiplier, I'd actually have to go with something more reliable, and of course, I'd also have to make sure the variable didn't endlessly raise itself.

    Also me: -browses Amazon for stuff that looks like something a healer class would wear-

     

    I feel I should also announce that I'm officially a low-level healer class in IRL. Which is why I have a sudden obsession with it. I guess I know now why characters always dress the part in games. XD

      Interesting. Would be a great addition to the library. I had a "library" thread where ppl gave ideas of classes, skills, enemies, etc, and I added them to the OP. Had it hidden bc the spoilers busted after site rework. Waiting for Riki to unhide it.

  20. Anybody know where I can find resources that work with the POP! Horror tiles?

    EDIT: For VX Ace, not MV.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Any of the horror themed music and sound packs, Always Sometimes Monsters (it's on sale right now for a whole week!!!!! 70% off I believe), any graphics packs that are similar in appearance to POP...

      I mostly just have the sound resources from the POP Horror City stuffs in Ramsey; the art style doesn't actually fit with Mack's sprites...

    2. AutumnAbsinthe

      AutumnAbsinthe

      I'm thinking of making a game in the POP! Horror style. Kinda wanna get away from the samey look most of my projects have. I've got one going in the DS style as well.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I like the art styles of both, but I honestly just wanna finish one project before starting another...

      1) I entirely agree about puzzle horror. Action horror is an entirely different genre entirely though.

      Most 'action horror' games I think are really more just straight up action games that use horror theming. Kinda like Doom.

      Quote

      2) I've never played Minecraft, but I've heard about the freaky stuff. I've also seen how some people feel about the Enderman. 😳

      ... Are we still talking horror feelings are are we heading more into Mob Talker territory? Minecraft inspires all sorts of feelings after all. :P

      Quote

      3) 7 Days To Die and The Forest play the survival part straight while (mostly) keeping within the genre.

      I know games like that exist, I just haven't played them. :3

      Oh. And Wesker wearing sunglasses at, like, 11:00 PM.

      AutumnAbsinthe

      I also have hypersensitive vision. lolz One of my old friends used to call me Wesker because of it.

       

      Definitely Mob Talker-

       

      EDIT: Almost forgot to mention that, technically speaking, RE4 and on count as action horror. Gun down the attacking things with (usually) more ammo than you can shake a stick at, compare to the previous three entries in all their limited ammo and health item glory... RE2 aside, due to somebody actually doing a tally of the ammo after playing aggressively and still having so much.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      I don't think I have hypersensitive vision myself, but bright lights can still be annoying. Honestly I don't really think sunglasses even really make it that much harder to see at night anyway? I don't think they uniformly block all frequencies of light.

       

      Enderman or Bend her (over) man?

       

      I haven't really played any of the RE games except I think a little of RE4, so I can't be sure, but it seemed to me like RE4 at least still had a bit of that puzzle horror feel. Not heard anything good about 5 or 6 though. RE7 looked like it sorta returned to the series' puzzle-based roots though, new first person camera nonwithstanding. I haven't played RE7, but I have watched a playthrough or two.
