      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.

      This ever happen to you? While working on my game this week many good ideas for my second game came to me.

        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.

        Happens to me all the time, I find it incredibly difficult to finish anything because I always get more excited about the new project.

      Going back over some of the events early in my game today. Found myself muttering "Why in the *world* did I use a parallel process here?" many times already.

        With me it's the other way round, there's a whole bunch of stuff I could have done much easier had I known about them to start with.

      After sitting all day in meetings, I think I'm going to add a new skill to my game: Death by Meeting.

        Ah hah hah! Perfect! Meetings are truly dull... no matter how many balloons may be present. Twas a promotional meeting I had once, it was still.... boring.

      Ever go back to redraw one of your first maps ever in RPGMaker, and find yourself going "What was I thinking?"

        It's kind of funny in a way, as right now I'm redoing some of my first ever RPGMaker maps based on feedback in early project development. Seems I was shoehorning things in just a little too long...bleck.

        I don't really make games.. most just script. But I've done that a lot when I go back to my older scripts. Some of them were... just bad

      Decided to spend today playing through my game from start to finish and noting what needs to be changed and what doesn't work well. About 4 hours later I'm 1 hour into the game (of approx 4 hours of playtime). This is gonna take a while...

        I feel ya. I was doing the same thing with a 20 min game.... Took me 3 hours to get to the current end point... Good luck with your endeavor.

        I know. I think part of the problem is I stop to fix the bug when I see it (so I don't forget). I've also re-written two whole dialogs while doing this, which added to the time.

      Go to clean my kitchen, come up with an idea on things to add to a script I wrote and how to do them. Maybe I should go clean the kitchen more often when I'm stumped?

        Ah, I meant to include that too but I used the wrong word. The body can't tell the difference between work that gets stuff done and work that just uses up energy. The point is that getting the body going helps creativity. The actual activity doesn't matter so much as long as you don't use much brain power to do it.

        It's a very interesting process. It's to do with the brain getting bored and receiving very little stimulation, and so it ends up creating stimulation for itself. ;)

      In class today the lights were off for some reason, so I joked "It is dark inside, you are about to be eaten by a grue." None of them got it. Now I just feel old...

        Keep at it you'll get there! One thing I do is, save the bug testing for when you get three more done.

      Since we are on a random name kick today:http://videogamena.me/ it generates a random name for a game (based on current existing names). I got Turbo Squirrel Preacher. What do you get?

        Hehe, these titles are awesome. I wish I had the time for Kamikaze Baseball of the Blood God.


        Let's see, some more funny ones:


        - Frankenstein's Duck Havoc


        - In the Lost Kingdom of Vocabulary Fun


        - Escape from the Bedtime of Magic.

        If my game wasn't named "Light Phantasy The Red Crystal",I would change it.

      Stupid illness. At least this gives me a chance to playtest my game from start to finish in those fleeting wakeful hours.

        @touch Boolean algebra seems really easy, but I may be a little biased since programming includes a lot of ANDs ORs and NOTs.

        I was going over conditional logic, so how if, and, or statements work. Used VX ACE and a little ruby to demonstrate simple if statements and when the if will run and when it will not. In a few weeks will return to it when they are ready for for and while, and algorithms

        @Zalerinian, I went to school for Electronics. I can still do figure out all the logic, I've just forgotten how to do the math itself to speed things up.
