  • It's been half a month and I didn't give signs of life, not even in my website.

    I've been studying about my project and I discovered something that I definitely think it will be better.

    On the other hand, I still have to learn how to use it properly so I need time.

    You know for a character with her chest scantily covered... It's actually very hard to notice it past her face. There's kind of a playful wrongness to her, like maybe she doesn't really care a whole lot about reality. I like that. :LZSexcite:

    She's more of a Chaotic Good kind of character, it's designed that way to reflect that. Glad you like it! ^^
    >What's your avatar about? Is it yours?
    I did not do that drawing. It's a screenshot taken from a comic featuring characters from Touhou such as Tenshi and Iku (the girl in the avatar). It's drawn by someone under the name of Yohane.
    Link to the comic (SFW, but navigating around Dynasty Reader is NSFW)

    "Oh... IT'S WORKING, IT'S ACTUALLY WORKING!!"
    It's going to take me a while to set everything up. In the meantime, take a listen to one of my most favorite songs: Wonderful Heaven by Yuuhei Satellite!

    Not completed yet but still made a huge progress in comparison with the other days. This girl still needs her hairpin and glasses, not forgetting about the colour, shading and more.

    Another announcement about my nickname. My nickname now is 48Tentacles instead of Tentacle48 because I realized I'm an idiot and didn't think twice before.

    What I'm doing so far:
    • Artwork for the game. Specifically two character sheets for each character, and then 2 other pics of the two characters in complete display. Almost done.
    • Doing tests with RPG Maker with GENE with a separate game to learn how it works -and it's working.
    • Re-writing the start of the script.
    MEanwhile, enjoy another sneak peek / preview!

    Until next time!

    Perseverance is key, bois and girls.
    Good news I haven't advanced so much more than generating characters. So everything's cool.

    Protip: never hit F5 while you are in your profile page writing around. I've wrote a paragraph and I don't wanna write again.
    I ****ed up.

    I may have to redo my project files because:
    1. It's disorganized.
    2. I deleted the template attacks, actors, skills... which I wasn't supposed to do that in the first place. This is the most important reason: never delete template stuff in your database unless you absolutely know what you're doing. Don't make this noob mistake.
    3. The plugins are disorganized as well.

    Learn from mistake no.2 and keep backups! Back up your project every week! Once you have a backup you can organize all your stuff without having to worry about accidentally deleting something ^^

    Learn the "template stuff" until you know what you're doing so you can safely delete them. Until you can make a game from zero databases.

    Got it, thanks! Time to add one more USB HDD for the groceries list.
    While writing a script, keep in mind that you don't have to follow the storyline in order. I just skipped to a next part of the story a few stages later in the game to put an important dialogue.

    It's cool that it actually works for you.

    For me... mind mapping stuffs in advance, yes. But for actualy script writing? No... I always tend to hit writer's block everytime I write ahead and skip parts of the story.

    I do something similar. I have a section in my mind map called 'Key dialogues'.
    Where I write down any epic dialogue that's popping into my head, that isn't related to the script I'm writing at the moment.

    And then I go back to it later. :LZSsmile:
    I really wish to have listened someone's advice regarding writing, because I'm a little stuck.

    Guys, if you have a whole story in mind, and you strongly believe it's going to work, make the effort of writing it. Because if you get stuck in a scene, you might have to re-assess it.

    I think you should definitely do that. Write the story and know the beats to hit before you start putting it into a game format.

    Go back in time from that point and take another course of action. You'll end stuck a lot if the plot is dynamic - even after jotting down a working structure. I think there's no way to avoid it, just tricks to manage it.

    I made the summary of my story. But writing the whole script, including the secondary missions... let's just say it's a bigger challenge. :smile:
    Testing testing. First time doing this.

    What are we, facekook?
