        ok i have atleast 7 but no bingos :D , sword weilder, forced into party, dead parents, 18 or under, uses light/fire base abilities, very adaptible character in game, a dude........though dont know if a laid back personality, and a love of tacticle/skillful combat over brute force counts as any of those......

        I had 5 myself, but no bingo. As for what it means if you get bingo? I'd say just laugh about it and move on.

      One thing I've noticed as I've played some of the older RPG's...their encounter rates aren't really that high either. Most of them had many fixed fights mixed in with the random fights, it just felt random as you couldn't see the fixed fights onscreen. either

        I may have to work on something like that.

      It's Monday, which means it's project backup day.

        @Vox: True, especially as I do most of my game development on Fri/Sat, then polish it on Sun/Mon, it seems like the best day to put a regular backup on.

      Apparently steam now sells tutorial videos. Bets on how long before RPGMaker tutorial videos end up on Steam?

        I'm more worried about how many crappy tutorials will be posted there. Do you have to pay to submit them? If not, it'll be as bad as Youtube.

      Thinking of making a little min-tutorial game in MV to show how I do some of my tricks. Think there'd be any interest in this?

        Oh, I was thinking a little on tints, how I use variables to control plot flow, a basic one on how to do self swtiches, how to use pitch/tempo to make musics sound different, and so on.

      Once you finish copying over the BaseResourcepack over to the MV directory, the RTP is actually pretty large this time around. Dunno what all the fuss is about.

        The only fuss I hate with the RTP is the lack of monster sprites, to be honest. Even with the expansion stuff that came from preordering, there isn't much there. I was also at least hoping for some basic animals like wolves :( aww well though!

        I'm glad it's not all packed in. I like having it separate, but hey. If they want that, then they are more than welcome, but yeah. It's huge. They complain because it's not all pre-packaged. Plus the Trial doesn't have the BaseResources archive that the full version does.

        Agreed. It's actually brilliant to have sf AND fantasy resources this time. Generator can create for both settings, and a mix up of the two settings can be done. I really want to use the mechanical Byakko, Genbu, Seiryu and Suzaku. Always loved the mystic of the 4 sacred beast. (Only missing a Kirin though, and maybe Koryu, the yellow dragon)

      Signs you're bored at work: When you resize your actor sprites to 2x their original size, then have them run all over your maps (where the rest of the characters are regular size). Rawr!

      If I can manhandle every opponent in your game, your final boss should not still be able to manhandle me. I'm looking at you, Pillars of Eternity...

        But that boss has a weakness - hot whisky toddy and a wrap-around duvet to sweat it out. Has been known to reduce boss MHP by up to 60%. Your main problem is dealing with the minions - headaches and appetite stealers whose job is to weaken you further so that the boss can move in for the killer punch.

        I wish.


        I think I'm running out of ideas for side quests that aren't thinly disguised versions of previous ones.

        It's difficult to make good sidequests, or rather interesting side quests you can make them good as in balanced but making them fun is another thing entirely. You don't want something like Nier where almost everything is a generic get this, collect that or kill this.
