  • Had to clean up disk space because Windows Updates was having my primaries' disk space for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I guess the clean up thingy doesn't work or something because there were 15gigs of old update files in it.

    am I the only one who still runs a Vista system that only ever crashed once in a significant manner, and recovered within the hour?
    how many crashes did W10 report in it's first month of existence?
    Been thinking of changing the content of my game, or rather than element that it'll revolve around. Reason? Can't think of any more ice-ish names for characters. Arctica herself will remain in the game but may no longer be the main character, more like a major support character.
    So here are my side effects:

    1. Sir Sore Arms A lot is back.
    2. Massive body wide energy drain.
    3. Lt. Commander Pounding Headache - probably trying pull energy reserves due to #2.
    4. Cold despite lots of clothes on.
    5. General pain everywhere.
    6. Nelson appearing out of no where and going HA HAAAAAA
    7. Some heart pain.
    8. High temperature.
    Well, fully vaccinated now. I guess I'll find out what in a few hours what the side effects are heh. The first shot put my left arm though so much hell that it was unusable for a day.

    It is just a dangerous precedent that doesn't protect anyone anyway. The 'pandemic of the unvaccinated' makes no sense. If the vaccine works then the unvaccinated would only be a danger to themselves, if it doesn't work in the traditional sense or against some of the variants (as Israel seems to indicate) then segregating society is a pointless scapegoat at best.

    @The Stranger most don't, its really only chains that try enforcing it, I can go to the local coop or head shop or the bargain bins without a problem. It comes down to whether or not the governor of your state tres to enforce the blatantly illegal mandate or not if chains even enforce it, half the country you don't have to worry, and the other half not everyone goes along and its largely unenforced.

    There's no card(yet) and it's on record here. As for the political climate surrounding it, I'd rather not get into that. Washing hands and wearing masks is the safest thing to do and you're visibly being considerate of others health and life.
    ..So Facebook is down, and is currently the way I could contact my mom. >_>

    @Philosophus Vagus - I've been using Facebook since 2008. I don't know how bad it is as I stick to my Skyrim, FF, and Falcons group and use it to keep contact with my mom who lives an ocean away, and my long time friend from FFXI who lives in the UK. She is old and not tech savy, I can't really teach her to use other communication venues from where I am.

    Though I suppose I need to look into a way that is easy for a 65 year old, before trolls do get Facebook shutdown for good(honestly I doubt Mark would allow that to happen, not with having so much stock in it).
    Nevermind..

    Time to take a little break from the project to work on another for Skyrim. Shouldn't take too long, as it's just fulfilling an easy to do request(more than likely I'll get beaten to the punch but...) this also gives me an excuse to play Skyrim again LOL.
    Ok.. coding what should be a simple "everyone is petrified and therefore dead, now go to game over screen" shouldn't involve needing to become Dr. J and dunking from the free throw line(my way of saying "jumping through hoops").

    Code:
    Game_Unit.prototype.isAllDead = function() {
        var memNum=this.aliveMembers().length;
        return !memNum || this.aliveMembers().filter(member => member.isStateAffected(X)).length==memNum;
    };
    where X is the ID of your petrified state.

    Thanks for that. I attempted something similar yesterday but didn't test because I burned out after testing everything else(hence my complaint).

    JavaScript:
    ; was a rewritten version of aliveMembers
    Game_Unit.prototype.petrifiedMembers = function() {
       return this.members().filter(member => member.isPetrified());
    };
    ..of the major old school series that began in the 80s- early 90s, I still haven't beaten 'a' Zelda game. Mario 64 was the first Mario I've beaten. I don't know if I should give that honor to Link to the Past or A Link Between Worlds(I currently own both). Well technically I've haven't beaten a Sonic either (Game Genie doesn't count =P).

    I recommend A Link to the Past if you're going for old school completion. I think it's one of those games that aged well.

    Yeah I think LTTP is fittng.. that was the game me and my late dad were playing when I was little.
    When doing a map or whatever, kind of wish you could round out some parts.

    I believe FSM (woods & cave set) has rounded corners! Someone used that set in the Map Madness challenge and it made a nice difference! At least I think it was that set. I have it so can double check later on. :)
    WE ARE THE BORG. YOUR BIOLOGICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL DISTINCTIVENESS WILL BE ADDED TO OUR OWN. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
    Well today was blown away with nothing to show for it. I made a new character to my game who I was going to have a protection mechanic where he protects my main character randomly unless it's a critical, and no matter what, to check if an attack received will be critical, means checking the apply method. This means rewriting the entire method and I refused to do that.
    Arctica
    Arctica
    Refusal is due to future issues with the method, if I do so as I'll need it when I recreate my barrier spell. I'll have to design another form of protection for my character. (Also apply is the method to apply the target, so this is not to be confused with function.prototype.apply())
    Zombie status is now complete. I didn't have to do much in the way of changing how healing is applied to undead targets, was just a simple 3 line code. I thought I had to overhaul Game_Action lol. Everything else was doable by events. So.. Zombie: You turn undead. Your element changes to darkness. You're weak to light, you're strong to physical attacks and healing hurts you and revival items will kill you.
    I've been working on status effects since last thursday, and today I finished the core mechanic of Zombie, Teleport, Curse and Recall. Zombie and Curse are lacking a few things to make them complete atm. Teleport though is the "HAHA" spell for some of my mobs, but can "NOPE" at them with Recall.
    It's special day for me tomorrow so time to vanish for 24 hours lol.

    Note to self: The avatar size thingy of this forum software stretches the dimensions to make it fit the max size.
    So balancing combat damage, etc. I actually loaded up FF7(original) to do a couple of battles at the train station see how the flow is in early going fights and maybe I can learn from that. Also checking out some damage formulas from Suikoden 2 and found one for magic that I can use.

    No, plz, don't do that!
    I can't say anything for Suidoken, but don't play FF7 to study balance.
    Final Fantasy 7 is one of my favorite RPG game, but the game is not a good example of balance. This game you can finish only spamming attack.
    Try something more actual to balance, specialy games with constant patches. That's my 50 cent.​

    I will sudy Suikoden 2 because it has simpler damage equations. Indeed FF7 becomes lopsided about halfway through the game when attack damage outpaces magic damage thereby making it pointless to even use it.
    One of the biggest setbacks ever. If you start a new project and delete everything because you know... you WANT ALL OF THOSE SLOTS, the engine throws typeErrors everywhere because it's trying to find stuff that ain't there anymore. Blaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I'll have to "convert" my "test project" into my real one.

    LOL - I just did this yesterday and was like, "Oh $***!". I was able to go in my System tab and select None for all of my sounds though so only had to retrieve a few extra files.

    In case you're not sure how to grab those files, you can start a new project and its game folder. Let me know how it goes!

    P.S. funny that we both did this, not laughing at any misfortune

    This is the type of situation where most people around here go to a gas station. I prefer other methods like cold water and singing to hyper music.

    The nearest gas station doesn't have one. Here in Finland, vending machines are all placed along each train stop. There's one close to my house but it doesn't work with debit cards and I never carry cash lol. Just was total bad luck last night.

I just don't know why, but it's funny.

Ugh. The one time I forget to save every hour or so is also the day my computer crashes. That's life!
Even though I spent 100's of dollars on my game already. I think I might just have to give it away for free. Since I haven't heard back from people if I could use some of their graphics. Even from a global mod here. Maybe I can make a donation thing.
you know, some days you get resentful that game dev is even considered a "fun job" and other days it's like, welp, time to roll up my sleeves and code these molotov cocktails
If you suck at playing trumpets, that is probably why.
