    What happened to World of Chaos?

    Nothing really happened to it. I didn't abandon it or anything (I promise). Life just got in the way between grades, graduation, jobs, etc. With that being said, I'm not *currently* working on World of Chaos only because it's game size is large (content-wise), and I probably shouldn't attempt to release a huge game on my first time showing a game I created to the public. So World of Chaos has not been dusted but is currently on the backburner. What project am I working on? It's called Mythical Legends: Azar Chronicles (RM XP), and it is a much MUCH smaller game. I can't give a definite date on when it'll be done since I'm still going through life stuff, but as soon as I can calculate an ETA, I'll let you guys know. Game takes place in a room between a grandfather and his grandchild. Grandfather is showinf his grandchild this book, and the story of the book is where the game takes place. Now, the story itself takes place in a realm where magic stems from Seroma (Afterlife). Seroma was created by a man named Calhadin,. The Azarian realm has 12 Davkins (AKA Kings/Queens) with Calhadin acting more as the guardian of the realm that watches over his creation, Seroma. The story starts with you waking up in some strange place you've never seen, and you have a short chat with a mysterious man before Calhadin intervenes and breaks you out of there. You end up helping to close a portal leading to the Azarian Realm, and from there, you are sent to the Davkins to tell your story. After that, the Davkins suggested you are of importance to either Calhadin or whoever is leading the invaders, thus, they decided you will help end this invasion and will aid in any way they can for when the expected final battle comes. What I have done so far: CTS Battle System 16+ Custom Stats Status Screen overhaul Tutorial and Intro Message system On-map object interaction system 3D on-map gameplay What I plan to do next Level up system Skill leveling system Skills Weapons Armors State animation tweak so that you see the name on the animtions Note: I have a script that cycles animations Main Quest Side Quests I will do the above in that order. The game should be done after I do all of that. After this game, I'm going back to working on World of Chaos. Therefore, expect to see Mythical Legends: Azar Chronicles Progress blog series in the near future.
  2. I recently remembered an old topic Tsarmina made that was about telling people about some pros and cons of yourself. I've seen some active games recently, but I don't recall seeing one that actually let us "meet" each other. Especially the newer members, so I thought this would help amend that - even if it turns out to be a short topic before Kaz waves her mighty keys and locks the topic :3 (in a friendly way of course~) ===================================== Introduction This topic is to allow us to get to know each other a little better. Each poster will have the chance to answer a question asked by the previous poster, and then give a question of their own for the next person. Rules - No spamming or off topic posts. This keeps teh "game" tidy and on topic. - No offensive or insulting questions. This counts for questions such as "whos better, x or y" since this can cause alot of arguments and trouble. - You can have brief chatter within the topic, as long as you answer/ask a question like stated. Adding an extension to the end of your post is fine such as; answer to previous poster currently asked question (Oh hey, I watched that show too. It was really good!) That is acceptable as long as the topic continues smoothly. - Don't be a question/answer hog! If you answered a question, and then someone after you answer your question, then let some time pass before you answer again. This lets everyone get a chance to respond and lets us get to know more people. If a day has passed and no one has responded, then you may then answer again to keep the topic lively~ - No advertising or anything. Just keep the topic on topic please~ If someone doesn't understand teh topic, then please look over the previous posts to understand. I hope this makes sense xD ================================== What is your favorite gaming genre?
  3. Alright, I'm sorry to tell you, but you got baited hardcore. This isn't about how you start off your Game, but about what you need to learn in order to make your Game, yourself and your Job/Hobby successful. This actually has nothing to do with how you approach Art, Eventing, Scripting, Composing, etc., but how you approach yourself first. I had a revelation the other day and wanted to brag about it and make myself look smart infront of the Internet today. So let's go. WARNING: Everything I tell you from this point forward is just an Opinion! I like to share my Opinions and views with others around, so don't take them seriously! TL;DR: Mentally strengthen yourself, accept Change and be a Jerk if you want. Strength Let's begin a little friendly here. What's Strength? What defines it? What do I do with it? I could be a total smartass here and just pull out the Wikipedia Article for Strength, but i'm not gonna rely on a Website to tell me what the definition of Strength means. Strength means a lot to people, but people also don't know what Strength exactly means to them. It's different for every Human, hell, even for every Being! Strength is substantial, without it we would not have any desires, thus no motivation to do anything. And if we don't do anything, nothing moves forward. It's something that we naturally have, so losing it is extremely fatal for your Psyche. It's like if you are a Worker and you build a House with your own Strength. But for the sake of not talking about Houses and Workers, let's just call Workers "You", "People", etc. and this House "self" for now. People have different tastes, so usually you'll see different people with different "selfs". When you are aware of your surroundings and you are a little Kid, you aim something to be. You aim, but you don't have the right tools yet to build yourself with. As Time flows and your Age increases the World opens up to you in many different ways. But that is also where you get your tools from to build your "self". In my Eyes, I view Strength simply as a Progress or Growth of myself. Do you know how people always say that they got "stronger" because they lvl'd up in a Video Game or something like that? Let's just ignore the Level, because that's just a "Stage" of your progress. What's more important here is the Experience you get. Your Experience bar fills up more and more until you get to the next "Stage". In the Real World, "Stages" would actually look different from Games. Every single Experience Point is a "Stage" for us. So meaning that if you get one Exp. Point, you'd already be at Level 2. We get Experience in the Real World through different means, rather than fighting Monsters, obviously. What does Experience do for us Humans? Well, let's just take a look back at the Game and tell me what the Game does if you Level up... That's right! They give us Stat increases, they give us new Skills to work with, but most importantly, they "Change" your Level, or rather your "Stage" meaning you "Changed". Which brings me to my next "Stage" that i'm about to explain... (I'm not sorry) Change This is probably the Stage that is the most horrifying for Humans. Change means you, well, you changed... but why do some people seem to be scared of the "Change"? Let's take Britt Nicoles "Be The Change" Music as an example. "I've been starin' at the World... waitin'... I've been lookin' for a change... lately... All the trouble... All the Pain... We're facin'... Someone gotta be the Hope... Someone gotta be the Love..." So, now that we've looked at this rather... exquisite Lyric, tell me what she means by "All the trouble... All the Pain... We're facin'... Someone gotta be the Hope... Someone gotta be the Love..."? You're right, at the current moment, she's troubled with... something, it honestly doesn't matter, the point is she's not in a very good mood. And it seems like she wishes for "Hope" and "Love", or rather someone needs to give her "Hope" and "Love". Let's listen to more of it. "Too much Light to be livin' in the Dark... Where are we goin' we ain't gettin' very far... Why waste Time we only got one Life" "Too much Light to be livin' in the Dark"? What could this entail? Well, I think she means that "Hope" is all around us and we shouldn't be gloomy all the time. We should always think positively on things, rather than trying to find negative things to say/have a negative look on the things. "And don't you know it starts today... And Baby, no it's not too late... It begins with you and I... Together we can be the Change." So Britt Nicole views this in a rather positive way, right? But that doesn't really explain why Humans are scared of Change. Let me ask you something... Why did she wrote these Lyrics specifically? Well, according to her, she tells us how important it is to "Change" things. That... also doesn't quite help us figure out why People are scared of Change. Ok, i'm gonna tell you the answer, or at least what I think about it: There is no answer. I'm just gonna assume that Britt Nicole wrote the Lyrics, because she... just felt like it. Not saying she did it for Money or whatever other Reason, because i have no clue about her, i just dug this Song up randomly to talk about it. Why? Well, you see, it seems like "Change" is something that almost every single Person wants, but from other People. "Change" occurs during a Stage Switch, or more in Game-ly terms: Level up. I'm gonna make a somewhat weird metaphor to explain exactly why Change can be scary. "But you said, there's no answer!" That's where i got you by your skin, you fool! There's no answer for Britt Nicoles desire why she wrote this song this way, but there is one for why people fear "Change"! Often times Humans are unpredictable. You will never truly know why People did stuff like this and like that. You don't even know why you wanted to eat an Apple today, even though you were full from that one Fruitsalad. This is something I probably should have mentioned in the Strength section, but the more you strengthen yourself, the more desire/motivation you get to do certain things. In this case, eating an Apple after eating a whole Fruitsalad. Desire can be very unpredictable at times, you just get a feeling that it is the right thing to do, so you do it. That's what I think is a true Change. Anyway, let's get back to the metaphor. So most of you probably know the Final Fantasy Series, right? In the Final Fantasy Series you have certain Abilities that can do certain things on the Target, if the Target has a specific Level. The most wildly known Level-Skill is probably Level-5 Death, which if casted, kills the Target that has a Level multiplied by 5, like Level 10 or 25. Now let's go a little bit further. If you know Final Fantasy, you also know about the Blue Mage. For those who don't, a Blue Mage can learn Enemy Skills if the Enemy Skill is used directly on the Blue Mage. Imagine this: Your Party is currently a whole bunch of Blue Mages and everyone is at Level 14. They arrive in some sort of Library and one of the Enemies knows how to kill your Party if your Party has Levels multiplied by 5.(aka. knows Level-5 Death) The Blue Mages, knowing they can learn this Skill have all very different opinions on the current situation they find themselves in. Blue Mage 1: "Hey! That's an Enemy that knows how to kill us if we have a certain Level! Let's get that Skill!" Blue Mage 2: "I don't know about this... this sounds scary, what if we get killed from this Skill?" Blue Mage 3: "Who knows how useful that skill is gonna be anyway?" Blue Mage 4: "You never know, this might actually come in handy some day!" Alright, there are 4 types of Blue Mages with very distinct opinions on the matter. B-Mage 1 seems excited about it, doesn't fear the outcome and is relatively positive about his chances to get that Skill. Though it seems like he doesn't actually care about using it, he's more excited about "acquiring" it. B-Mage 2 seems to be wary of the ways of "acquiring" it. She fears that it might end up being a very bad idea in the end. B-Mage 3 isn't exactly scared of it, he rather questions the usefullness of that Skill and thinks it's not even worth his Time, because he's already wise enough. B-Mage 4 thinks it could prove use in the Future and doesn't shy away from this Skill. Alright, now i'm gonna use a Magic Trick... are you ready? Replace "Skill" with "Experience". The World looks a whole lot different now, ey? ... no? ... alright... Here we have a 1/4 ratio on the amount of People that are scared to gain this Experience, to gain this "Change". Some People are willing to Change even if it kills them, some aren't bothered by it and already have enough experience in their Lifes to completely ignore other Experiences, some are willing to give all Experiences a chance and some are simply afraid that they can be wounded if they Change. B-Mage 2, or let's just call her Lenna from now on, is afraid of "Change" and this is the only opinion I don't really see as an opinion at all, it's just fear. Of course it is important to be wary and sometimes have your guard up, but only if the Situation presents itself as dangerous. Were Lenna and her friends in danger? Well, obviously. Someone wanted to go to Level 15 to learn that Skill and get killed by it, I would also react to it a bit eye-bally. But the fact that 2 of them wanted to learn it and 1 simply didn't care, means that 3 of them were confident that this Experience won't really hurt them in the Process if they just try. But this metaphor is presented in an active manner, where things actually do matter and being scared can be a valuable opinion. I only didn't think being scared is a opinion in a mental kind of way. Physically, yes, you can hurt yourself alot if your Change was really dumb, like trying to pick up a 300 pound heavy thing with your skinny arms and breaking your Back. Breaking your Back being the dumb Change. Mentally, however in my opinion, you've got nothing to lose. So being scared isn't really a valid opinion in this situation. Being versatile and keep pushing towards higher Goals is what gives you even more Strength. These two things compliment each other very well and it makes you a better Human overall. Nature What doesn't make you a better Human, however, is the fact that you are being a Jerk! ...but... is that really true? So, while the first 2 Stages seem useful to know about, is it really enough to make a good impact upon yourself? This depends on your "Nature" or your "Personality". I could talk... SO. MUCH. ABOUT. PERSONALITIES! and want to share SO. MUCH. OPINION! but i need to stay neutral and present this Topic in a non-controversial way. Let me just get my Opinion out the window before we begin with this Topic: I REALLY THINK THAT HUMANS AREN'T BAD OR GOOD, I JUST DON'T TRY TO BOTHER THEM SO THAT THEY CAN'T BOTHER ME. I PERSONALLY ACCEPT EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING, AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T AFFECT ME! Alright, so where to begin... ... ... ... eh... I guess I pretty much said everything there's to say in my opinion, didn't I? Lmao But that's just my opinion and you really don't need to be this way, if you don't want to be. The only thing I can add to this, is that tastes vary and you sometimes need to adjust a little to your surrounded Folks. If the majority agrees that you are being a Jerk, then stop. If the majority agrees you are not being a bother, then continue being you... HOWEVER, we can play a little advanced! At this Stage in the Game you already can tell who's at what Stage and depending on their Stage, you can either continue being a Jerk, even though they told you not to be a Jerk anymore, or just do something else. Is that ok, though? Well, this has something to do with Respect. If you are a Jerk and respect their Nature and Progress, then go ahead and continue being a Jerk, even though they told you not to do it. They should learn to respect you as well and if they don't respect you, then I guess just stop being Friends with them, because they are still stuck at their second Stage called "Change", or, even better, try to Change them yourself. If you are a Jerk and DON'T respect their Nature and Progress... then there's two more ways: First one being if your Friends are still stuck at "Changing" themselves up(hence, why you don't respect them that much), then you can still continue being a Jerk. Why? You probably think at this Point:"That's bullying!" No, it's not at all. I mean... sarcastically making fun of someone nowadays is a common thing and if they don't see your, at this point, MASSIVE change in Character and Strength, just means they never Experienced anything, making them look like a Stage 0 Hero at this point. The other being-... OK GRANDPA, SHUT IT! I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR CRAP! You probably get my view at this point. Most people think that everybody should Respect everyone, no matter what they do, who they are and etc. as long as they follow the rules. Alright... you wanna know my Point of view for this, for the last time? This is a controversial opinion, so hear me out on this one, before you crucify me... Yes, I said I don't want to be controversial, but this point is something that I think will open your minds a bit about why I decided to go controversial for this. I do not think you should respect everyone, or follow rules... like at all. Rules are, in my opinion, the MOST devastating thing that can happen to your Character/Psyche. Rules weren't made by some otherworldly Being that you need to obey to, or you die because of it, no questions asked. No, Rules are made by us Humans and Humans CAN be wrong, therefore some Rules can be seen wrong as well and we can question about it. If you blindly follow them, without questioning them, then, in my opinion, you deserve no more respect than a kid being thaught how to draw a perfect circle. However, the Kid sees that it can draw a Circle. You know what happens after the Kid tried to draw a circle? He tried different shapes. Next he went for a Square, and even if it doesn't look quite right, he tried anyway. And nobody told him to do that, he just simply went ahead and drew a really crappy square. And this crappy Square deserves more praise and respect than a taught circle. The same logic applies to breaking the rules. Yes, I said that. Breaking the rules that you do not agree with, can actually give you more respect than anything else, because you are proud of your opinion and everybody applauds you for that. And I'm obviously not talking about Rules like no murdering or no robbing or even bother others. Dude... at this point, you probably would've figured it out at this point, without me having to actually write that sentence down. So why did I do it? Because it seems like most Humans forgot what exactly they are doing, what they were fighting for and where to go. I just wanted to recall all of this for you, because I'm legit worried about our Future. All of this makes us Humans. Like I said... this up here is all just an opinion based on the Experiences of a 22 year old Idiot, whose english is Bad. Whether you choose to value my Experiences is up to you.
  4. I want to say why this post is not good. For one, this is jealousy and insecurity speaking. "I trust him, but not them." That is dumb; you have to trust him 100%. If you only trust him as far as you can see him, that is not trust, just verification. Second, don't dictate what friends your BF/GF can be with because you are afraid that something might happen between them AKA insecurity. Third, that last one is the dumbest. "...or you used to like." If a female tells me "Sorry, I don't like you like that, but we can be friends." You mean to tell me, if we date, I gotta break dat up too? Why do women say it, then? Why not "No, I don't like you like that way and we cannot be friends" and end this "confusion"? Fourth, a guy/girl can't control who likes them. You trust them to say no and keep it moving. If the guy/girl persist, you trust them to break off the friendship. If you got trust issues, don't be in a relationship. Don't burden ur other with that stuff. You go and fix yourself up. If I see one more "I got trust issues, it is your job to show me different" I'm gonna explode. It is NOT their job. It is YOUR job to fix YOUR problems. That sounds snobby as heck. "The guys I dated did this, so you must be the same. If not, show me different." Really? REALLY??? I, hereby, say "All black girls I've met are rude, so therefore, every black girls is rude. If not, show me different." Watch how people scream "RACISM AND SEXISM!" on that. *deep breathe* Okay, that's my response. What you think?
  5. Have you ever ran into that problem, where something is the way it is, but you have no way of explaining why it's like that? For example, why do heroes in games keep putting artifacts in dungeons when they always get defeated? Why not bury it in a random place and just remember where it's at? Why not put it in the bottom of the ocean? Just saying, there is better places than a dungeon when your rival keeps coming in, defeating you, nearly kills you, takes the artifact, runs away with it, you go, kill/defeat him, take it back, the story repeats again. Why? No one knows. Not that it's a bad thing. I guess if you're making a sequel, sometimes, the characters gotta be a lil stupid so there can be another game. Well, I wouldn't say stupid but have them make obvious mistakes or otherwise, known as rookie mistakes. Like Diablo, they don't know when to stop putting the black stone or any artifact in dungeons. Dungeons isn't their friend even though they try to make it their friend. Just saying, you'll think at a certain point, they'll stop putting them in dungeons. Now, I've never played DIablo, this is what I heard about it on the Diablo Reaper of Souls trailer on youtube. My question is... Does the player have to know why something is the way it is?

    Tribute to "Nice Guys"

    This speech wasn't made by me. I found it here: Link Ode to the Nice Guys This rant was written for the Wharton Undergraduate Journal This is a tribute to the nice guys. The nice guys that finish last, that never become more than friends, that endure hours of whining and bitching about what assholes guys are, while disproving the very point. This is dedicated to those guys who always provide a shoulder to lean on but restrain themselves to tentative hugs, those guys who hold open doors and give reassuring pats on the back and sit patiently outside the changing room at department stores. This is in honor of the guys that obligingly reiterate how cute/beautiful/smart/funny/sexy their female friends are at the appropriate moment, because they know most girls need that litany of support. This is in honor of the guys with open minds, with laid-back attitudes, with honest concern. This is in honor of the guys who respect a girl’s every facet, from her privacy to her theology to her clothing style. This is for the guys who escort their drunk, bewildered female friends back from parties and never take advantage once they’re at her door, for the guys who accompany girls to bars as buffers against the rest of the creepy male population, for the guys who know a girl is fishing for compliments but give them out anyway, for the guys who always play by the rules in a game where the rules favor cheaters, for the guys who are accredited as boyfriend material but somehow don’t end up being boyfriends, for all the nice guys who are overlooked, underestimated, and unappreciated, for all the nice guys who are manipulated, misled, and unjustly abandoned, this is for you. This is for that time she left 40 urgent messages on your cell phone, and when you called her back, she spent three hours painstakingly dissecting two sentences her boyfriend said to her over dinner. And even though you thought her boyfriend was a chump and a jerk, you assured her that it was all ok and she shouldn’t worry about it. This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree you’d ever orchestrated in GTA3 to rant about a rumor that romantically linked her and the guy she thinks is the most repulsive person in the world. And even though you thought it was immature and you had nothing against the guy, you paused the game for two hours and helped her concoct a counter-rumor to spread around the floor. This is also for that time she didn’t have a date, so after numerous vows that there was nothing “serious†between the two of you, she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody, the beer was awful, and she flirted shamelessly with you, justifying each fit of reckless teasing by announcing to everyone: “oh, but we’re just friends!†And even though you were invited purely as a symbolic warm body for her ego, you went anyways. Because you’re nice like that. The nice guys don’t often get credit where credit is due. And perhaps more disturbing, the nice guys don’t seem to get laid as often as they should. And I wish I could logically explain this trend, but I can’t. From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace, the only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical, manipulative bitches. Many of them claim they just want to date a nice guy, but when presented with such a specimen, they say irrational, confusing things such as “oh, he’s too nice to date†or “he would be a good boyfriend but he’s not for me†or “he already puts up with so much from me, I couldn’t possibly ask him out!†or the most frustrating of all: “no, it would ruin our friendship.†Yet, they continue to lament the lack of datable men in the world, and they expect their too-nice-to-date male friends to sympathize and apologize for the men that are jerks. Sorry, guys, girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom. I can’t figure out why the connection breaks down between what they say (I want a nice guy!) and what they do (I’m going to sleep with this complete ass now!). But one thing I can do, is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomenon doesn’t last forever. There are definitely many girls who grow out of that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice guys, not taking them for granted. The tricky part is finding those girls, and even trickier, finding the ones that are single. So, until those girls are found, I propose a toast to all the nice guys. You know who you are, and I know you’re sick of hearing yourself described as ubiquitously nice. But the truth of the matter is, the world needs your patience in the department store, your holding open of doors, your party escorting services, your propensity to be a sucker for a pretty smile. For all the crazy, inane, absurd things you tolerate, for all the situations where you are the faceless, nameless hero, my accolades, my acknowledgement, and my gratitude go out to you. You do have credibility in this society, and your well deserved vindication is coming. Fu-zu Jen, SEAS/WH, 2003
