      Providing updates on your game progress is always satisfying when there has been some actual progress! Lol

      Found out the importance of backing up today. Luckily this is a good practice I have, unluckily I let my back-up get a little out of date!

        Data corruption. I got the good ole unable to read game.rpgproject error. Restored that file and started to get the other unable to read errors. So I am restoring from the back up but there was data lose.

      Just Rudimentary Pixel Art and Coding, plus edits are so time consuming. Atleast it is progress so I shouldn't complain.

        It can be rough. I try to rotate out what I'm working on so as to avoid getting burnt out. I agree, however, any progress is better than none. :D

        Yes. I love the end result but the process is very long. And it brings new and unexpected pains in my fingers every time :)

        Sometimes getting more specific in my goals, knowing more exactly what I want and what I need to do to get there, helps me find some extra motivation.

        Good advice. I also jump around and check out other projects when I'm feeling stuck. Seeing the hard work of others, and how they are progressing can usually help me out of a rut.

        Then perhaps worth considering a game idea where mapping will be minimal, like perhaps a story that happens within a small cluster of maps of the same area, or something like that.

      *grumbles at MV and how it calculates pixels and offsets things weirdly with Time Fantasy* So... VX Ace or RM2k3... lol

        I'll have to talk to someone and see about it. It offsets the pixels mostly because TF for MV is done x3. So events are completely offset so you can use the tilesets in events... and the player is shifted. You can't just shift the character set over neither because it changes from map to map off they are offset! *facepalm*

    Credit for my Avatar goes to Dani Oliver on Twitter. I borrowed it off the internet and do not intend to claim it any other way.

    Let's just say I have an obsession with gaming and leave it at that. I currently heavily involved in the SCA learning Heavy Fighter Combat and spending my remaining free time when not work at my full time job on RPG Maker. Someday I am going to release that game of my dre... Nevermind. I'll just stick to having fun with it.

    I've only been involved with the release of a single game called A Most Inconvenient Evening which was for a game jam called Winterruption. My current project has been underway for almost a year though I have changed art directions 3 times and the game engine twice which has definitely slowed my progress but I am very happy with the current state of things. I continue to push forward on the path to completion!

    Hopefully we will cross paths and make/play/discuss great games together!

    I'll see you around, game makers!
