  • I was having game-making fatigue...then I saw DLC on Steam that was previously MZ only - which I don't have so Steam said I could not get >.> - is now available for MV too!
    Deploy the gift cards! :D

    I think most image resources work in both MV and MZ, so if you don't find something that's in both you can likely buy it in one and use it in the other.

    Steam doesn't let you buy DLC for products you don't have in your Steam library. I don't have MZ, so Steam won't let me buy MZ DLC sadly. There's always the Degica site, but my gift cards are obviously not valid there haha!

    Oh, weird. I've gotten free dlc for products I don't have, I didn't know you couldn't on paid DLC.
    It's astonishing how badly the loss of hearing in one ear affects balance .-. Tried to do my exercise routine and ending up doing sideways jumping jacks. Probably looked funny though!
    Thankfully it can be fixed. No permanent loopy jumping jacks!

    It's crazy how interconnected the systems are in your body, right?

    I'm going through some bad symptoms (like constant dizziness) myself lately and one of the current theories right now is that it could be an inner ear issue throwing everything off. Kind of in that vein, I've learned that...

    ...there are exercises you can train yourself in to reduce the effects on your balance.

    Hopefully you can fix your hearing issue entirely and get back to perfectly upright jumping jacks :D But if not, definitely look into the training you can do to improve your balance in the presence of ear issues.

    Yeah, I never thought a problem with my ear would make me lose balance haha!
    It is nothing permanent :) I'm going to a clinic tomorrow to get my ear cleaned out, then I need antibiotics for the infection. Painful, yes, annoying, extremely, but nothing that can't be fixed. I don't know how people with hearing loss do it o.o Seriously, a few days, and I'm so done with ear problems.
    Today I learned : How plastic is made for the sole purpose of making a joke in my game about Canadian milk being served in plastic bags.
    As a Canadian, I find it very amusing how confused my American friend gets over this concept of 'bagged milk'

    You'd confuse us Prairie folk about it too, you know. The last time I remember milk in bags, I was still a single-digit-age child, and all I ever did with it was poke it at the store and wonder what the heck that's all about while my parents picked up a perfectly normal carton.

    Wait wait, the prairies don't have bagged milk?! Ooof...as Canadians, we have standards to uphold, ya know! Bagged milk, living in igloos, breakfast everyday is maple syrup and bacon...

    The soda in bags is unforgivable though. It's awkward to hold, and you can't put it in a jug that has a cute cow printed on the side.
    Making AI for an enemy that actively transforms multiple times in battle according to the situation is...interesting. So many things to consider - is it currently transformed? What weaknesses does it have when transformed, so is it a good survival idea to transform now? Self buffs? What about debuffing the player's party?
    I love making enemy AI's for this reason!

    A mindblowing idea. Highly agree. something relating to Steampunk bosses (eg: Dishonored )and Fantasy bosses

    Thank you :) I stand on the idea that bosses don't need crazy stats to be a challenge!

    @Cythera Oh you share my mindset when it comes to bosses then? Cause I like to make bosses that react to the s### you can do and force you to play smart or you lose.

    I really dig the transforming thing for that reason.

    High stats by themselves are boring tbh... especially if they go into defense. :kaoangry:
    Wait, we have profile banners now?!

    Finally returning to one of my least favorite parts of game deving - mapping.
    Me, adding new map: Okay, so this map will be the - wait...Map 501?! O.O E-excuse me?!
    So, yup...breaking into the 500's for map count. Some are placeholders for now, since I haven't gotten around to actually mapping them yet. But soon. Very soon...oof, I'm scared.

    keep it up and it will go up even more :D but some even have much more, even though,
    my side game gets over 960 maps in total (devided by the game and turning around the
    mazes) and that has 4 diffent games to go in too :) and each map is different!

    mapping is time consuming, specially for some things that need edits to be inplented :p

    So I look forward that you hit the 999 maps (or over!)
    That awkward moment when you can't tell if your game's bosses are too easy, or if you're too good at your own game >.>
    Now I find myself wanting to buff my boss battles so I have a challenge for myself...but I do believe that's going to be too much for players haha!
    Mood today: "they're not bugs - they're unintended features!"
    I so wanted to update my game for New Years Eve, alas health issues are interrupting. A final how-do-you-do from 2020. At least there's always next year ;)

    Ah, so the tried and true Bethesda method.
    Finding it crazy hard to stay motivated and get things done - I really miss my job :( Another month to go, at the least.
    I have to get something done to feel semi-productive. So, I will get the next major update of my game out by New Years. If not, someone's gonna have to come yell at me, okay? Cool.

    Anyone still track Santa? He's over Greenland right now, heading to Canada.
    I..Erm... I have nephews. That's why I'm tracking Santa...Totally not for me or anything...
    Hey, hey you. Get ready for the best joke ever made.
    What do you call a banana that you throw?
    ...
    A banana-rang!
    Eh??? Get it?? Not a boomerang, but a banana-rang!
    Okay, I'll go lock myself in my basement again. That's my social quota for the week. But if you think that joke will somehow make its way into my game, you're gosh-dang right!
    Ah, yes, I have finally found a game with my desired difficulty level - Ark Survival Evolved. My first experience was spawning in, walking ten steps, and getting mauled to death by a lvl 15 raptor dino. Perfection.
    Plus it was 80% off on Steam, so I could actually afford it :3

    I hear very good things about Stalker: Call of Pripyat with the Misery mod from my brother. I've only played it for a bit, and the itemization is insane. Also, you should check out Roguelike games. Wazhack, Sword of the Stars The Pit, Wasted, Tales of Maj'eyal, Dungeons of Dredmor, all are great fun and very difficult. Only in a roguelike can you put on an enchanted necklace and it starts choking you.

    Just texted my kid to tell him I'd made tranq arrows in Ark and the spellchecker helpfully corrected it to the more politically correct "trans arrows" lol. Anyhow tamed a carborenmys and made a saddle. AND I just made a shotgun so maybe I can handle raptors finally.....

    I don't believe it - the to-do list for my game is actually...getting...smaller?
    Am I getting work done, managing my time better, or neglecting real life responsibilities? :p

    But infinite loops are fun! The worst that can happen is a crash due to memory leak! Right? XD

    Having to break an infinite loop could be a fun idea for a boss if done on purpose and done well.

    How I label my code: Meticulous, coherent comments clearly describing the code and its function.
    How I name my game files: 'R-RS_K--A_M'. What is it? I have no idea. It's a character sprite page, but where are they? What are they? I'll never know.

    Depending on the difficulty of your game. If I make the cave crawler game, yeah it is like play an RPG. But writing stuff and coding, testing stuff is working process for me lol. You are intelligent which I can see from you make the game still hunting at the mining unground holes.
    *Adds new plugin to game* *Tests new plugin on old save file* *panics when it doesn't work, spending 45 minutes combing through code and praying it isn't a compatibility issue*

Does anyone know of NPC sprites for RMMZ? I know of Flirion's RMMV recolours, but RMMZ's sprites are slimmer and more detailed, so I'm a bit on the edge to use Flirion's im RMMZ...
I can't believe that after all those years, KH Union X Dark Road is closing the services.

Due to a situation in which I thought plugin adaptations had stopped for the QPlugins, I "ghetto" converted these 7 over yesterday. They appear to work perfectly as long as you use old style plugin commands. I am uncertain if I will have a lot of free time in the future to work on this, but if you'd like them, here they are.
Was there a thread that you could share a screenshot of your game? I feel like I found it once but can't locate it again.

I was being lazy and just copied a map to test a new parallax, but I forgot to delete all the events. This was the result. :o
