  • -_- ... sigh, I guess maybe pixeling 48x48 tiles are just to big for me to make right now. So frustrating.

    Indeed, it look more like rastering with a microscope than pixelating. At least, interior tiles.

    I do 24x24 and upscale to get a nice pixel look; I don't think I'd be willing to go full HD 48x48 pixels.

    16x16 here, just don't have the time to pixel an entire game's worth of assets at 48x48

    I can unplug pretty easily thankfully. I've been getting more irritable of late, comes with losing patience for dumb stuff at an older age, so I force myself off to keep sanity in check. It helps that I've never been one for any social media sites, so it's like someone who never watches TV trying to stop watching TV.

    Because you feel a responsibility to do something about society’s problems, but it feels negative because all you can do for a lot of them is to feel anger, mistakenly.

    @KakonComp - Dont blame you, just thought I'd try it since it seemed like everyone was losing their mind about it. Didint realize it would be a gotcha game though :/ .

    My memory is embellishing the quality of NES era game assets :/ .... I need to stop comparing my work to somthing that was groundbreaking decades ago. Especially since its not as good as I seem to keep remembering it to be.

    Every time someone talks with nostalgia about the NES area graphics... I think they're from an alternate universe where that stuff wasn't eye bleedingly ugly. Some utopian universe of rainbows, puppies, flowers, and hardcore psychedelics. :LZSwink:

    Well...I think childhood really defines what beauty is for everyone. For example I may never understand the fashion sense of grandma. Something I may look at in horror she might genuinely think is beautiful. And we will both be right.

    Sometimes the appreciation can be learned too. I grew up in the era where EGA was a thing and that palette will make your eyes bleed, but now that I know a lot more about pixel art and working with difficult palettes I can better appreciate some of the EGA graphics. Not most of them, but some.

    X[ oh gawd.... I dropped my super expensive laptop on my hard tile floor! It still comes on and all, but now Im worried its gunna start screwing up in the near future.... I hope not, cant afford to replace stuff like that. :(

    Usually drop damage shows up right away. If you've turned it off and on once since the drop and everything still works like it should, the chances are really good that everything is fine.

    One of our laptops stopped working altogether when we dropped it...(we suspect the motherboard cracked) We hope the files on the hardrive are still intact.

    Disconnections and hard drive failure are the most common problems with dropped electronics.
    :( ... sigh, having trouble knowing where to draw highlights. Novice pixel artist issues.

    Most of the time if you break it down into basic shapes and use RL references you can figure it out. Of course, this all depends a lot on knowing where your lightsource is, so figure out exactly where the light is coming from first.
    O.O Im really glad RMMV/MZ's map and event system dont work the way RMDS-Fes' does. Like... I like Fes, I bought the Tiles for MV... XD but I barely touch it on my DS.
    -__- ... I have to keep reminding myself that the guy/gal Im watching do pixel art has the vid on a high frame skip.... they are so awesome.

    What kind of tofu? The firm, soft, or very soft tofu. I ask because I just eat tofu.

    Are computer screens steam-punk? :/
    :( I hate everything I pixel... Ok, maybe not hate, and maybe not everything, but Im definitely not "in like" with most things I pixel. Not a productive day today... gah! DX

    Your metric of liking what you pixel seems to be causing you distress.
    Whether you like what you produced or not, you gained experience points.

    People here are often way too hard on themselves. They spend an almost infinite amount of time scrutinizing stuff, all while the player is going to barely glance at it and move on. Best advice? Just go with it, because having a stack of graphics you sort of like, is better than having one graphic you really like. :LZSwink:
    ImaginaryVillain
    ImaginaryVillain
    Besides, you can always update it later. I often find inspiration for improvements happens down the road anyway after I've completed other stuff. Or sometimes just from IRL stuff. Point is, you can make a game out of the stack of graphics, not so much the one graphic. So don't sweat it too much. :LZSexcite:

    Entering a pact with the 'Zon for free keeps the pact weak, so you still have a chance to keep your soul before the trial runs out.
    So, what solution do yall use if you have a building with a entrance that isint *south* facing? I thought I using like a indicator Arrow/Icon for showing things the player can interact with. :<

    with very clear indicators, i don't bother with that, such as a temple entrance with a roof and columns that obviously leads where someone should walk. exception is usually with a path that's not covered, such as gravel path, which will lead to a recessed wall.
    deus69xxx
    and finally, actual doors, because i have very little skill in the way of art, i don't bother with doors from any angle but from the south. i just put an event that's same layer as players, make a sound effect and wait, then erase event, so they can walk through, or the standard transfer event. if only pics weren't hard, i'd give a screeny.

    O.O oh my... didint expect to get so many great suggestions, guess I will start a thread. Might benefit others!
    Was gunna get one of the extra DLCs for the launch... but I really only wanted 2 of the. So, I guess I'll wait till they go up individually.

    I wanted only 2 of them too but the pre-launch discount made them cheaper to get now than separately at full price for me.

    I just want the animations. This time I'm gonna use the RTP, but afterwards, I will be using custom graphics. The animations can still work with other graphical styles.
    Sigh, well... I guess I'm gunna shoot pestilence ridden villagers until MZ launches (RE4) .

    Agreed, friend. I'm practically chomping at the bit. I've been holding off on this game idea for MZ; I hope MZ appreciates our desire for it.

gotta love when a plugin you thought had nothing to do with why something else wasn't working winds up being the issue...
