    That's the one. : D

    Going to announce the call for playtesters when it's officially the weekend. It's been a very productive week for Malleus and in general (MIGHT have something to do with the fact I'm taking a short break from smoking pot...PROBABLY just a coincidence).
    Man, being able to edit my game WHILE testplaying it is like the most convenient thing EVER. Thank you, MV...it even makes up for the OGG thing. Well, almost.

    My man @Uzuki introduced me to this program FormatFactory which makes converting to OGG much less of a pain by letting me batch convert. Trying to explain my issues with ogg I realized it was going to take me more words than are allowed in a profile comment, so I'm messaging you.

    Open formats are good for everyone. Ogg is an open format, and I'd convert every audio file to it and use just that format if I could. As for batch converting, I personally prefer the command line.

    There was an Ace script that let you do that. Awesome!
    Man, I wish it was harder for mean d-holes to make me feel like crying.
    well, I definitely have a type, cute redheads with medusa piercings, met and hit it off with two of them in the last 72 hours, what does it mean lol?
    As for the Coronavirus? Well: "People that spend their life avoiding death are already dead (they're also rich, and I like to spend my life with their money.)"

    It's not any good when people do what's 'moral' in their own eyes.
    OMFG. I had typed \fiPhilosophia Hermetica\fi in a forum post and didn't notice it for AN HOUR.

    (Anyone else ever catch themselves doing this?)

    in case it was unclear I'm talking about using RM(MV) text codes where they aren't needed or appropriate not like...idk, Latin or metaphysics or whatever.
    suspended on twitter for calling an ahole an ahole & appealing the tweet; furious at myself for being even slightly upset with my suspension: oh no, you've been temporarily banned from hell. GET OVER IT, me.

    (I found a way to stream a game of a sport I don't follow, between a team I don't care about and a team I dislike, filled with commercials that mainly represent what I hate about this country...FOR FREE (no tv hookups for this bird)... so I'm feeling like Eliot ****ing Alderson over here.)
    DID YOU KNOW the Spanish Inquisition invented (or at least practiced) "enhanced interrogation" (waterboarding)? Whatever, right? They tortured lots of folx lots of ways. But that they CALLED it the same thing at that time is very interesting! They called it "Interrogatorio mejorado del agua": "Interrogatorio mejorado" translates as "enhanced interrogation".

    Are you going to have your very own Tomas de Torquemada in your game?

    I was stunned-STUNNED-to find that I have been working on my current project since November. It feels like so much less time than that.

    Life always goes painfully slow for me, so it feels like I've been working forever, but hasn't been really that long in comparison to how I feel it has. XD So opposite of your experience.
    Trauma, drama, llamas--sadly the only one of those things I'm not experiencing RN is the camelids.

    Might not actually be depression, could just be Impostor Syndrome.

    In my experience, a person's belief in their usefulness is inversely proportional to how useful they actually are. Those that are truly useful usually just see all the stuff they couldn't get to.

    Not formally, no, but that's a more academic way of describing what I was thinking lol
    Pretend you were telling, reading, or listening to a very serious, slightly scary story about witches. Would a witch doing the stereotypical flying on a broomstick thing ruin the mood?

    These things happened mostly due to political reasons. The witch hysteria in Germany, for example, had very little to do with the fear of witches and heretics, and more to do with the reformation and the two churches vying for influence over both people and kingdoms. If your world has very real witches, then the reasons for a witch craze might be very different.

    Have you ever played Inquisitor? It's an RPG in which you play as an inquisitor. the game world is based on our world, only the supernatural is all too real, so your role as an inquisitor is kinda justified by the fact you're actually fighting to protect the world from monsters, witches, etc. I also found the game to be extremely hard unless I played as the priest. lol.

    As stranger said, historically a lot of men were executed for being witches as well. I'd imagine you already have read the Malleus Malificarum given your games title, but if by some chance you havent the book has a section dedicated to male witches. Idk if that's a theme you want to explore in your game though.
    Decided to focus on mapping for once. I've pumped out 15* new maps over the past two days' work, including two larger ones that involved some kinda fancy parallax stuff.

    *should actually be 17 by the end of the night.

    Trying not to get too giddy over the illusion of progress here (I mean, there's real progress, but it seems like more than it is). It's (probably) going to take a heck of a lot longer to fill those maps with atmosphere, music, NPCs, shops, and just generally...gameplay.

    While I'm commenting on my own status like a jerk anyway, no I don't use Yanfly's Grid-Free Doodads because it seems...too easy. I have grown used to the constraints of the grid, like one might get used to a prison cell or an abusive lover. Whenever I need to avoid "gridlock" (teehee) I use parallaxes & overlays like in the old days.

    I hate Grid Free Doodads, it is so not at as good as it looks. "Hey, wanna map off the grid with my plugin that offers no tools for dealing with the consequences of mapping off the grid??" (I avoid Yanfly on MV when and where I can, nowadays). "Gridlock".... XD
    The sad reaction was not because I want you to credit me. (terms clearly say no need to credit) but because those maps are meant to be used as inspiration or guidence. You are ofcourse alowed to use them however you want :)

    Well, in this case regardless of what the terms are I fully intend to credit you, I believe in giving credit where it's due. Thanks for clarifying that, though.

    It might not look like it from the screens I posted but my map differs from yours pretty significantly. The line between "used as inspiration or guidance" and "used as a basis to edit from" is a blurred one. I mean, guidance, in particular, is exactly what I think I'm getting from using the map this way. It is a literal guide I am following to lay out the city in an attractive and interesting-to-traverse way.
    and as John Cleese would say: "And now for something completely different..."

Just finished making a character selector at the beginning of the game that allows the player to pick gender and skin tone. I couldn't be more pleased.
Stream will be live shortly with some Witcher 3! Feel free to drop by!
Helldivers is so much fun!
Suitemate: "Do you have detergent"
Me: "Ya, the spray kind"
Me: *realizes he said detergent, not deodorant*
Me: "Guess I'll die!"
If there's one thing I hate about myself, it's that I procrastinate. Ever since I started looking stuff up on how to properly balance and create armour, weapons and skills; I've let myself down in progress.
