      If failing to plan is planning to fail, then if I merely plan to plan, then I shall fail to fail.

      Made a plugin that automatically fills the browser window with your game. Then quickly realised why that's a bad idea.

        An ABS is on my to-do list for plugins but that will be in the far-flung future as I have a multitude of things to do before I can work on it.

      It's surprising that given we have a browser-based RPG Maker with direct ability to connect to a server, there are no MMORPGs around here. There were more MMO developers back in the RPG Maker XP day, and back then we only had a dodgy script that didn't actually work very well! Now we have it all produced for us on an open plate but nobody is biting.

      Trying to explain how to make an MMORPG my way to somebody, but realising half way through that it's a really convoluted system that only really makes sense in my head and I can't explain it. I think basically what I've done is made up a way of doing it, somehow psychically transferred it to RPG Maker, and it works on a quantum level. Something to do with the resonating frequencies of the Thingummyjiggits. Still, feel free to Ask Me Anything about making an MMORPG, if you don't mind your head exploding at some point.

        Super old post, I know... But quite honestly I been trying to incorporate an Auction house or at least a trading system into my game but can't really find any help. A TON of searching the internet has brought me here and I'm wondering if you can help. I don't really need any other multiplayer help as my game isn't gonna be an MMO.

        But I do want a trading system to give my professions (Or trade skills) a more dynamic feel, And to be able to limit the number of professions a player can learn without the feeling of closing off a lot of content from my game. I want players to be able to trade with each other based on professions and what they learned to craft throughout playing my game. Please and Thank you.

      On a production high at the moment. But now I'm depressed because I know it's going to end in a crash again.

        @Artificer If she's anything like me it's because production highs usually accompany bouts of insomnia, and when you finally fall asleep you wake up exhausted and wishing you could sleep for a week.


           Try not to crash to hard, maybe you'll bounce back quickly.

      I dreamt that an update to PHP replaced if and else with anna and elsa. I was getting really frustrated at how now there were even more differences between PHP and JavaScript.

      What if NPCs talked to you in battle, and your choices affected things in the battle? For example, the NPC asks if you felt that hit. "Yeah, you got me" -> you defend the next turn. "Nah, 'tis but a flesh wound" -> you do double damage next turn but with half defense.

        Personally I feel like that would take control away from the player. Maybe if the whole game was like
        a visual-novel esque game where choices progressed the story maybe. 
        What about the enemy reacting differently based on your response? "yeah you got me" > lowers enemy guard, they get overconfident. "Nah tis but a flesh wound" enemy ups their game, angry at your arrogance.

        I concur! 


        Democratic voting is a great thing, if people aren't lying about what you're voting for!


        And fear-mongering is just plain underhanded  :headshake:


        It would be nice to know that politicians have to keep their promises, I think I'll show that petition to my parents, as they can actually vote! :cutesmile:


        But yeah, it's not like this is the first time people have made false promises, and we got over it then, so we shouldn't let it get us down :cutesmile:


        Things are gonna be different, so I guess we just have to try to make it a good kind of different :D


        Still don't like the why they lied though, it wasn't fair to the people voting :(

        I agree, yeah. I was hoping people won't fall for these lies, especially the whole "We send £350 million every week to EU. Let's spend it on NHS instead". It was clear to me right away that 1) that number was exaggerated and untrue, and 2) they didn't intend to spend all that money on NHS (since when have far right wingers been supportive of NHS?).


        This is the main reason to me why democracy is flawed - because it's so easy to mislead the common people with pretty lies. Whoever has the most influence on media will likely come out at the top.

        Yup, some of them are extremely weird. It's just a shame that more people don't know about the set. The mecha in the set is pretty amazing.

        The set of girls in pictures01>character2 in lots of different situations with weapons is also awesome. (just typing that I know it sounded weird...)


        It could really call for a funny High school all girl battle royale kind of game. (but it might be too hard to stay on the right side of the Ecchi line, so I won't even try, might end up bad taste)

      I get a huge amount of pms and emails from people asking how to make an mmo or my thoughts on aspects of an mmo. Happy to answer all correspondence, but is there somewhere I can put up an "ask me anything" thread or a FAQ or something like that? I feel like I'm answering the same questions a lot.

        Thought it's not a tutorial, I wonder if one of those forums might be the best place?  Otherwise put it in the Support forum for the appropriate maker and check with mods whether it'd be okay to go into Tutorials.  It might also be worth reserving a couple of posts at the start if you're going to make it an FAQ.


        And it probably won't reduce the amount of PMs you get.  Just sayin' ;)

      Thinking of making some kind of modular sprite battle system, almost similar to Adventure Quest, where battlers are made up of individual body parts which are then animated. Sounds like it would be a lot of work, but battles would be fully animated then. Will think about it.

        In fact i think that it is not a bad idea. Developing the system will really be a lot of work.


        But once it's done, adding new sprites is pretty easy.
