  • My laptop's HDD died yesterday...luckily, I had another drive to use for it, and I back up documents fairly often, so I think all I lost was a few days of development...le sigh.

    I've taken the precautions to upgrade to ssd drives and I do say I'm completely satisfied. Sorry to hear mate. Although you seem to have the know how to resolve your own problem which is grand.
    One more paper and I will have written my last grad school essay. Then I can finally get back to the important stuff, like making a game nobody will play.

    I know this to be true. I play my interests I'm human. make something I want to like. Make something interesting/concept, or pure beautiful graphics. Are you grabbing the attention of the audience with the descriptions and media? Who's thinking here? Are there multiple people in the room? Or I'm I thinking. "Hey, Jimmy why is that dog barking." "It's rugged I know pull it open". Paint me a picture.

    Honestly, I feel the same way. RPG Maker games already have a stigma towards them, and I figure "what's the point?" sometimes. It's really difficult to imagine people taking an interest in your game when there's already so much oversaturation in the market.
    I've made a lot of small changes and fixes over the past couple weeks without actually making any progress on my game...now I'm running out of things I want to change, and I'm terrified that I might have to start being productive again...the horror! D:

    Fixes is progress because it means you wont have to worry about them later.

    Haha, you got this I believe in you! When I'm trying to fix things, I tend to get tons of ideas that I wouldn't have had normally which I then try to work on and end up having twice as many things to fix! Wishing you the best!

    My favorite kind of progress? Reverse progress! First, change some small feature of your game. Second, go back through and change 6,000 tiny things related to that minor alteration just to get your game playable again. What fun!

    Oh yes, that's the most fun thing. One of the reasons I've basically put a spreadsheet together to try to avoid doing that as much as possible. X feeds into Y. Z affects X. Account for Z every time X is called.

    Or my favorite, total reverse progress! It's not progress unless you revamp your entire game multiple times!

    @cthulhusquid oh God, now you're giving me flashbacks to when I first started my game. "Let me just rework this to be better, it shouldn't take that long". Cue 5 days later when I finish.
    I'm into working on the penultimate chapter of my game, and it's going well...so well that I worked on it all day yesterday and am now overwhelmed with the other things I didn't do. Go me.
    I like numbers. Here's my game (so far) by the numbers:
    Actors: 16
    Items: 74
    Common Events: 100
    Switches: 263
    Variables: 155
    Plugins: 26
    Maps: 159
    Events: 5203
    Which adds up to maybe 6 hours of play time and an embarrassing number of hours of my time.

    So many events...yet so little items.... :kaoback:

    Yeah, it's just the kind of game I'm making; you can examine pretty much everything, but there's not a lot to pick up as you go, and no enemies, skills, states, weapons or armor to add to that.
    Joke of the day: "Today's the day I work hard and accomplish a lot."

    um just curious but what would this game be about? you know they say talking about it helps... the trauma that is game making and it is easily soothed by talking sooo lets hear it.
    Took some good advice and ran a bunch of bloated images through tinypng.com and ended up shaving something like 60mb off my project's size. That's a pretty good percentage of the total size just from compressing some images :o

    And then there's me, with half a dozen powerful modern image editing softwares installed, making books in Microsoft Paint 3D... so, I mean, the site isn't exactly needed, but it serves a purpose ;)

    If you use GIMP, you can directly select the compression ratio when exporting a .png :)

    i use gimp and ps cause im dum dum.
    Implemented the "Player's Guide" into the game today. It's a hulking behemoth of dozens of pictures that added a lot of bulk to my project for no good reason. I like it, tho, download size be damned.

    That looks real nice! I like how the background is blurred out so the focus is on the book.

    What I do when I have to incorporate pictures like that is put them through tinypng.com first. This reduces the file size of each one by around 70% without loss of quality.

    @Kes ermagerd, why didn't I think of that! Thank you!
    Today I made a spider sprite. I wanted it to be small, so I made it small...then I realized I couldn't actually see it...maybe I'll try again.

how do you attach those images to your posts?
I picked up FF III pixel remaster for the mobile discount sale. I guess that's on my plate after I finish Lunar Silver Star Story. That said, I am strongly considering an entry for the IGMC 2022 since an idea came to me for this year's theme.
Map033.png Road to the ruins of the temple of light you'll be exploring after leaving Teytal. Can I get some Yays?
I just bought VN Maker with 75% off, just for the assets.
IGMC is back everyone!
