  • Doing a summary of the script I lost. Still frustrated but it has to be better than nothing.

    Keep at it, you might be happier with the end result than what you had before.
    I despise everything I do.
    I despise the effort to get up of bed.
    I despise the effort to eat a meal.
    I despise the effort to walk at house and on the street.
    I despise the effort to play games and VNs.
    I despise considering in writing and drawing again.

    Is this normal after losing something important?

    @HexMozart88 I should've remembered that depression is indeed a thing. I had hoped it was just the shock of losing all that progress that they had posted about, but . . .

    Actually the stress of losing all that progress could be the trigger for a depressive episode, especially if there are other stressful factors already going on and/or there are other factors reducing your resilience. There doesn't need to be any prior depression.

    These especially do sound like depressive symptoms to me. If these persist for longer than a few days I advise consulting a physician.
    It's okay to be afraid of things, bravery is doing the right thing in the face of being afraid. But living in perpetual fear is different. You don't have to live in fear.
    And my brothers still wonder why I don't like Outer Wilds's story.

    In regards to that last line... I still have a difficult time grasping that idea. Especially when most galaxies have a super massive blackhole with an acretion disk at the center. Love me some astronomy talk, tho :)

    I'll try to explain without spoilers: the idea is that there are similarities on people and stars regarding death.
    When a star becomes a supernova it's so bright that outshines other stars.
    When a person dies, their loved ones are deeply affected.

    Disdain for corporate nonsense is good. Also, I don't think you're a bad person for using ad-blockers - I just wanted to point out on this post that there are reasons for not using them! Stay cool! :)

    I always tell content creators to set up their community hubs and handle donations outside of youtube.
    I'm not subbed to anyone, and I have a strict no-ads block on everything.
    youtube was created to veer off from TV, and they're becoming exactly like TV.
    netflix is going the same way.
    why start an "alternative to" if you gonna end up being the same?
    The reason I say "actions are louder than words" so often is because it's a good filter to tell who are good people and who are bad people.

    Example: If in an office someone is ridiculing you for months suddenly tells in an official dinner how good you are, would you believe him/her?

    There's another saying: "Talk is cheap", which is also very true.

    A bad person will say anything you want to hear, and then let you down when you try to rely on them... :kaoangry:

    I'm more inclined to believe those who shut their trap and get things done. That's how respect and trust is earned, not by word of mouth.:kaoslp:

    Lol. Not referring to politicians, but more to certain IRL hypocrites who forced me into doing something I refused to do while conveniently supporting the opposite as projection.

    Actions. Not words.

    I know I'm repeating these three words, but it will help you remember.
    Define purpose in your own words.
    And assuming it doesn't contradict your definition: if someone takes your purpose away, can you get a new one?

    External things we have no control over can too easily get in the way of a goal. I remember how hard it was for me when I became disabled and had to adjust to my new norm. It was hard not to just make a new purpose and move my self worth over to something new, and to just accept that this was my life now.

    Fine....It's uhh....Hmm...life goals? I suppose. I dunno, never really had or needed a purpose tbh :p Outside of just trying to enjoy life without being a dick to others.

    I'm totally nailing it too!
    If a person becomes voluntarily missing, does it cause the butterfly effect?

    What? "If a person runs away and goes into hiding does it affect other people"? Obviously yes.

    If the butterfly effect is the person's mother (or insert loved one here, but if there is a mother in the picture she'll probably be the quickest to do so) filing a missing persons report and cops doing a full forensics audit on your vehicle when you return from an impromptu hiking trip then the answer is yes.
    Confirmed, GIF profile banners are not possible.

    I know you wanted it, but I'm glad. Having things moving around while you're trying to read the text of forum posts is just distracting and annoying :wink: The animated emojis are bad enough.

    @ATT_Turan Yeah, it's a shame that GIFs aren't possible, but at least I have a B plan just in case. I can understand why. I didn't plan for a crazy style with lights and colors, I intended to do some sort of soothing effect (I dunno how to explain it :stickytongue: )
    Something I'm writing about for a future thread. Hopefully not too controversial.

    "Indie" and "corporate" are two ends of a spectrum. Art (films/theater/tv, games, music/poems, books, etc.) closer to the "indie" end of that spectrum are defined by smaller budgets, less marketing, being made and published by smaller companies. The line that seperates the "indie" half from the "corporate" half is contextual.

    Not enjoying with a game and being offended at a game are two different things. I don't know what you're talking about.

    Being offended is a state of mind, it is a choice. So long as you provide an overview of what is in your game, then players are pre-warned and make a choice wether or not to play.

    If they then play the game and choose to be offended that is on them, and clearly not by your intent.

    "If they then play the game and choose to be offended that is on them"

    Exactly. Hence the disclaimer. I can't even begin to count how many projects died because of this. Maybe it's a good topic for a thread.

    ... Writing dialogue like a script somehow never occurred to me before. I just visualize scenes instead, so this was pretty interesting.

    @RCXDan I like thinking I am better at writing dialogues than writing narratives. While I follow certain steps to create the script I'm not 100% orthodox in the methodology of the official process compared with the professional works like this one below:

It might be a little bit boring and tedious, but building that database of armor, items, weapons and skills are super important.
More words of wisdom: Trying to make everyone happy will just make you miserable.
Ads: "Up to 90% off"
Reality: 9 items at 10% Off, one item at 90% off
if you were working on a rhythm-based retro fighting game, would you rather have the jumps take up two beats (one for jumping, one for landing) or just one?
