        Pneumonia is usually the result of the of having a different infection first; it doesn't really start out that way. So, in a way, pneumonia isn't really contagious at all. But the other stuff that can turn into it, are.

        The Bracelet costs 80,000,000 Crystal Hearts... Or you can buy one with real money for $50.

        Nah, the place I'm staying at over the holidays has bandwidth caps on download/uploads and such. Will be a change to have to deal with that vs my usual internet which as no restrictions.

        Without appropriate planning, a simple one level dungeon will overwhelm a person. I made a 15 level interconnected dungeon, and it was possible because it was planned.

        Even with planning, it can be overwhelming though. But, it does look nice when it is all in the game properly I will admit.

        I wonder if he ever created a battler of himself, or maybe of rm people here.


        That would be awesome.

        As a variation on a theme - importing an edited tilesheet and seeing no perceptible improvement. Re-edit, import, still no improvement. repeat a couple of more times, and only then spot that you are importing your tile sheet into Battlers.

        The part you have access to is small, the rest is restricted as the party 'isn't good enough' in the eyes of the guards.

        @bgillisp If you are using MV, try using Avery's guards on her advent event page. They are great for blocking areas.

      So I had an idea for a game mechanic: Instead of hit and misses, replace miss with a weak hit (reduced damage). Good or bad idea?

        That's what I was thinking too, make it like a graze. Or, since HP is supposed to represent fatigue in battle (and not hits), even a miss would reduce fatigue a little. I may give it a try in a side project to see if this can be implemented then, now that I know it is not a 100% crazy idea.

        possible to have all 3? Hit, graze or miss entirely?

        Yes, it doesn't have to be made in 2014, especially as I almost never play a game the same year it comes out.

      You know you have succeeded in making the end boss of a chapter difficult when you (the developer) can lose that fight still.

        Okay. Consider something better fleshed out for the game's final boss.

        Yes, that's the plan. This is only the boss of chapter 1. And that is what I did do Matseb2611 with the either 2x on same person vs hit all. Still, it seems the problem came down to I didn't have dispel working yet, so couldn't remove those $@%^ status aliments he also hits you with on his other skills (the ones I haven't mentioned), which was causing me to lose ~100 HP per turn in slip damage too (2x party hit all + slip damage = OUCH!). Just never noticed it yet as...

      Dear Conception II: I wanted to like you. But, when your last dungeons are way too low, EXP rewards are too low for fights, and then you throw a boss at me that goes 4 turns to my one and KO's me in those 4 turns, forget it.

        You write them down at least? I've heard that is one of the best ways to handle them, as they can turn into side projects.
