If RPG Maker had a "Find and Replace" text option, I'd be so happy.
Honestly, I wish RPG Maker had an option to toggle eventing mode from clicking to typing. I'd be fine with typing out events; it's not the clicking that makes RPG Maker easier for me (it's actually tedious). It's the event commands that are so intuitive.
Imagine if you could start typing "con" and then a popup window with "conditional branch" would show. Then inside the branch, you type "var" and boom, variable. And then you do ">" and you can select from either "greater than" or "greater than or equal to", etc. It would be a lot more like coding but still easier, because as I said, the event commands as a whole are a lot simpler than even something like Python.
Also the mapping system and database are SO much more convenient in RPG Maker than any other engine. I'm just tired of clicking through menus to find event commands
And of course, back to my original topic: I'm so tired of having to write tiny snippets of dialogue in small text boxes. I have a story heavy game and it's just so inconvenient. I wish it was as convenient as Renpy.
Stream is late, but going live nonetheless! Tonight, we continue Super Mario RPG! Feel free to drop by!
I had a delightful dream last night, why was i so sad when i woke up
Good to be back
I had a weird dream, but was annoyed when it was over and I had to get up.
It's really sad when you can't get enough rest between shifts
I need to find out how to compress two projects into one.
Woa, best of luck.
Reopening my music commission thread!
cute chibi catgirl that needs a home.
Leeloo Dallas, multipass.
Absolutely. I've Seen it probably a million times. But i am a huge Fan of Luc Besson in General. Did you know, that he wrote the script for the movie, when he was 17?
Wow! Really? I didn't know that. That's pretty impressive. I loved the strange mix of science and the supernatural in the story. My favourite aspect of the film, however, is probably its depiction of futuristic cities. Even now, I wish for the future will be like that. xD
If you are into manga you might enjoy the works of tsutomu nihei. He used to be an architect before he started creating manga and his city designs are outstanding but very dystopian. Blame! And biomega would be good examples.
Just opened the topic of my new game! Check it out if you have the time^^
Finally posted the full OST for my game. It's about 1 hour and 45 mins of orchestral tracks that I composed.
Thanks! I've been composing for some time, but you can hear the difference in quality between some tracks because I got better and better every time I composed a track lol. I call this phenomenon skill inflation.
Well I could write for hours what i think about this OST but I'll condense it to a single word : Awesome!
Thanks! Happy people can enjoy it!
playing gran turismo 2
I like almost all the GT games honestly. I have collected all the main entry ones from GT1 to Sport.
im playing GT1 and 2,never playing GT3,GT4 is my favorite. GT5 and 6 are the best because have so much AI. PSP are the worst for me.
I heard Sport can customize the car,am I right?
How typical: Summer vacation's nearly over, and only now do I get the itch to work on my project again.
It's never too late to work on your game!
If you only work when you get an itch youll never finish.
just work as you can. 2020 still too long
Instrumental music - the best kind of music to listen to when working on your projects.
Music seems like something people don't even register consciously when watching movies/playing games, even if it's the easiest and default way to set the mood, I think.
A lot of scenes would be so awkward without music - remember a scene - three people staring at each other for 5 minutes, just the camera changes. But since there was a soundtrack that made it mysterious/epic, it wasn't such bother watching it.
Yeah, music and sfxes often fall into that categorgy of things that you don't notice when it's done well, but which you notice if it's bad or missing entirely. Take footfall sounds, for example, it's not something you tend to praise or even notice in a game, but it's something people notice when a game doesn't have them.
And, as you said, music can be, and often is, the main reason we feel certain emotions in a game or film. Music has a powerful effect on us. Music can make us feel things, or even recall old memories. Would your favourite emotional scene from a game be as powerful without the music and sound design? Probably not.
Been taking break from making my game... Now to try and get back into it. *eek!*
I guess most of us can relate to that a good and up to date documentation of your thoughts is crucial, especially when you're not voluntaruly taking that break.
Practicing in map making today. Still need grass, flowers and more but I'm getting there https://i.imgur.com/JGDjgAL.png
Thanks for the advice. It makes sense and I will try to do that later
Looks like a fun map to explore! ^_^
Thank you, glad to hear that
Looks great! Cars and babes - going back to the basics. xD
Changing the facial expressions of sprites really makes a difference.
Yeah, I agree with you on giving up at certain things. While it's great to try to do things by yourself, you just can't learn everything - sometimes you just need to find somebody who does it better than you so you can focus on who you can do.
I'm certainly not going to learn how to compose music for example, because that would be hopeless. xD
Sticking to only doing character faces/busts and simple edits, because that's what I'm alright at.
Exactly and it's fine to find someone who is really good at it to make it for you. I won't make music either, no way I can't sprite.
I can make simple edits as well, so I will stick with that. Not sure about character faces, I can't make busts that's for sure but I'm kinda okay with faces
First big plugin is coming along really well! 800 lines of code in, still a bit more to go

Finally approaching my first big milestone, the first (small) demo of Dragon's Dawn should be coming soon!
It's a pity we don't have a compatible printer. We'd be stocked for months with printer toners otherwise... For free.
