        Hang in there. We all screw up some times. Try to look forward. If I looked back on all my mistakes I would just die. But we get better as time goes on.

      For those familiar with Jewelbeat, how does creating a spreadsheet listing uses for its songs sound?

        Seems like a nice idea if you want to keep track of what songs you used in what project.

      Just when you think you found friends and realize yet again you’re likely to be taken advantage of.

        No use fretting about it. Learn from this experience and continue on, regardless of what lies ahead. If it helps, remember that in reality we are all alone, and always will be. I hope you will someday find a person who you can gladly stake your life for, and he would do the same for you.

        Don't worry about those who come and go. Everyone experiences that and there will be many more of those in the future. Just hold on to those who have proven to be reliable and genuinely want what's best for you. ;)

        Happens to me too :( It's not your fault though. Those people are takers with everyone they know. They don't make exceptions.
        We all encounter folk like that often.

        Great friends are almost as rare as unicorns. I try to focus on interacting with ppl who are nice, even if we remain at acquaintance levels. A small pleasant smile and hello is sometimes enough for the day.

        @BloodletterQ You worried about that too, eh? I know Jesse explained why he moved on from Ace resources, but it was still annoying to have all those old resources made obsolete. I'm working with MV style resources for my current project.

        I've been finding it difficult to work with the HF resources. Not in the sense that I find them hard to work with, but that I'm not enjoying working with them. No idea why. It's part of the reason why I switched to RTP style assets. I've made a bunch of floor decals in the RTP style for use as doodads; thinking about sharing them.

      So if I’m writing something influenced by JRPGs, should I look at some LPs for inspiration?

        Hm, I get the feeling JRPG's are influenced by animes, and then after a generation of JRPG's they influenced the animes, then the jrpg influenced anime influences a wave of JRPG's, and back and forth like that. So maybe watch a few anime if let's play watching is too boring?

        Are you hurt from the autistic thing? Defeat is a very powerful sensation, I know just how bad it can get. It can make you feel ever so worthless and small, as if there's nothing worth getting up for anymore. After all, why bother trying again and again if you'll only ever know the pain of defeat? There's always something which we look forward to, however. Some small ray of light which brightens up our day.

        Is there really? If you enjoy it, I don't see you think there would be no point. Isn't enjoyment the purpose of doing things in the first place?

        That would depend on the purpose you've attributed to your game. For me, success is measured in enjoyment, not in money. What do you want from your game?

      Think I figured out a way to not use Doodads. At least it'd probably only work with the plugins I'm using.

        It's the best way to make progress on game dev. All you have to do is make a start, and the rest will flow much easier. The initial barrier is often the hardest to overcome.

        I've probably seen worse. I used to go to one that thought Fallout was God's Gift to RPG's, and ripped all other games since.

        Oh, and the forums had no moderation then either (you could get away with almost anything) You can guess how well that worked out.

        sadly true, "the newer games are anime trash" even though tiki called marth onii chan in FE1 (Mirh also called that to Ephraim in 8 xD) . "the story sucks now" as if that wasnt the case for the vast majority of the games save some exceptions. But i have to agree with bgillisp, it could be much much worse.

        I find that nowadays there's no sense in me hoping bad stuff to happen to people who wronged me. I just know that if someone is toxic enough, I won't be the first or the last person they'd butt heads with. A person will continue to experience the same misfortune until they change themselves. So I just let life to have its way with them, because it will.

        @Matseb2611 I've always preferred being the karma you trust to take care of them (someone has to if you really think about it, and even as a kid confrontation suited me) but I do like your perspective. Anger and wishing harm on people is just wasted emotional effort, emotion better spent finding and keeping the people who are beneficial in your life than hating those that cause you to stumble.

        @Philosophus Vagus : Exactly. If it's a situation that affects your life and you can take action to resolve it, then sure. But if it's just pent up anger and hate, it is indeed a waste of emotional energy which can be better spent on more worthwhile activities. In the end, you're a winner not if you get involved in a fight, but if you don't get affected by it.

        Actually, it's never too late. You just need the inner strength to start anew, but you will make it. As long you don't give up. I almost died this week, and that also proved me that we can start from zero as long we don't give up. Just keep fighting, and don't underestimate you. You can do more than you think!

        I've always held the belief that things end for a reason, and that one shouldn't get caught up on regret. When one door closes another opens. You can only ever be true to yourself, and learn from both your mistakes and your successes. That's how I try to live. Of course, it doesn't always pan out like that. :)
