  • For all my complaining about the horrors of mapping, it has been shielding me from the true terror : playtesting and bug hunting :yswt2:

    @ScorchedGround Tween saved me so much time and trouble back in the older versions of RPG Maker. Shame the animation editor was totally removed in MZ, though.

    When I get burnt out, I hop into the database, so skills aren't the problem for me haha! Or I make really bad puns...
    Animations for said skills though - eek. The batch button is super useful.
    Still. I'd take making animations over bug hunting to be honest ._.

    I like bug hunting much more than the chores of mapping.
    Actually, I hate everything that does not use my brain to solve something.
    I've finally done it. 1,400 hours in the engine. A 30 hour demo. And I've FINALLY customized my game's save/load menu scene!
    ...It's not at all what I was supposed to be doing ._. And now I have a burning desire to animate said save/load scene.

    A 30-hour demo? How long is the full game??? @.@

    Cythera
    Um, well, it's not done yet, so hard to say... Probably around 35 hours? Not too much left in the main plotline.
    I never planned how long the game would be; it's just whatever the story needs to be told properly :3

    Congratulations! It always feels great to complete a major milestone in game development. Hope things go well for your game!
    If there was an award for best game dev procrastination, I'd say 'meh, I'll pick it up tomorrow' >_>
    Honestly though, I've been staring at the same half-made map for a while now haha! Ahhh, I'm so tired of mapping!

    You should probably both respect the dedication AND wonder how my soul is still intact. In fairness, if I didn't spend so much time writing scripts and plugins and answering questions for other people I'd have way more time to work on my own projects. :p

    Then again...I often wonder how ANY of our souls are intact. Who willingly chooses a hobby that consists of math, repeated testing of the same bloody thing again and again, cursing when a simple comma breaks hundreds of lines of code...
    Well. I meant to turn that into a joke, but it stayed real ._.
    ShadowDragon
    ShadowDragon
    a comma or missing } can breaks alot, but I dont curse if something dont work,
    I mostly stay calm, alot curse a lot and than it's working again, but staying calm
    and have patience, it will work as well in a short while.

    or leave, clear your head, and continue to see what is wrong :) (best approach)
    I am finally done making the 'superbosses' in my game!
    I'm happy because oh my gosh they were a lot of work, but I'm also sad because I love database work... And also because I loved making stupid powerful bosses ._.

    You LOVE database work? *Glances at his own project with dread* ... say Cythera... lol
    Cythera
    Cythera
    Ah yes, how could I forget the boss where the best strategy is to kill off the rest of your team in previous battles and run a one man army!
    Also, yes, Finn. I will do your database for you. But I then claim rights over combat mechanics :p
    Finnuval
    Finnuval
    Ps: joke's on you... My game doesn't have combat ROFL!
    So if a game's antagonist is the aunt to one of the main party members, would that make them the auntagonist?
    Ah, yes, I shall reward my exercising with a chocolate bar.

    snacks like that which is dutch word :) is something I can make, but those snacks
    are something I dont do everyday :) because alot of time to make them.
    so no @Finnuval I dont make snacks.

    everything is fine, but no snacks, faster by a "snackbar" =)
    Finnuval
    Finnuval
    @ShadowDragon Yeah they ar very typical Dutch and pretty hard to make yourself xD So snacks are off the table,,,hmm, lemme think of something else then :p
    ShadowDragon
    ShadowDragon
    snacks are easy to make, but time consuming, I make whatever Cythera likes
    or want to eat, except snacks ^^

    I can make sauces (champignons sauce, tomato sauce, cheesesauce, ragou etc (selfmade).
    Gotta admit, when I look at how much I have left to finish on my game, I feel pretty sad...
    Then I step back, see all I've completed so far...and realize I still have to finish up a bunch of other stuff too:yswt2:
    I have some news that I want to share - I've been accepted to university ^-^
    I received some offers just over a month ago, but I wanted to make my choice and get things in place before sharing the news.
    I'm super excited, and I'm very happy with my choice of program and school.
    My mind is now broken. I just spent over an hour on this stupid issue.
    Trying to get a skill to show text depending on enemy ID to show passives.
    Well. I tried to call one passive 'Spirit's Way'. See a problem? No? Neither did I until now!
    The apostrophe in "Spirit's" ended the text eval... no wonder I kept getting unexpected input errors...I think I'm gonna cry.
    "Everything tastes like chicken until it's chicken, then it doesn't taste like chicken."
    Context: chicken samosas do not taste like chicken. I thought it was veggie samosas.
    Just another ordinary evening.

    I once bought some microwavable Indian snacks (samosas, bhajis, etc), and all of them lacked flavour. They were genuinely tasteless. lol.
    Cythera
    Cythera
    Yeah, that's typically a no-go :(
    I lived in a town a few years ago that has this amazing Indian restaurant! Whenever I'm in town to visit my sis, we order (a rather absurd quantity of) food from them!

    Obviously the people who think that everything tastes like chicken have no tastebuds.
    So, MV crashed on me...even though I know I saved, I lost 3 hours of progress. That's an entire boss, complete with animations, action sequences, AI, drops, the works...
    That's just, super depressing and I don't have it in me right now to redo the stuff I made for that boss :(

    Dang that sucks to hear. :( If you need a look on the bright side, at least now you can go over the work you did in your head, and make it even better than the first time! :D

    True, it won't take me as long to do it the second time around :/
    But I really liked that boss...he had cool skills to decimate players with...
    On second thought, maybe he was too strong. But he is optional so I'm okay with that :D
    Instead of actually working on my game, I worked on an Excel sheet of all the data in my game! # of skills, weapons, enemies, etc.
    ...I realize I have spent a LOT of time in the database ._. My favorite number? # of Unique Armours: 2093
    Cythera
    Cythera
    Update: Tried to apply my game's augment system (attaching items to armours to give bonus properties) and had to stop because the count surpassed *60K XD
    I think it's time to stop adding random traits and augments to my game :yswt:
    *Whoops, actually 20K. Double-tap keys in Excel = problems lol
    Still :3

    I love stumbling through my spreadsheets.
    I'd like to find one person who doesn't mock my phone! >.< My friends mock it, my boss mocks it, my coworkers politely but still mock it, my family mocks it! Why?! My phone is perfectly fine! Yes, it's coming up on 8 years old, but it does its job just fine. Hmph! ._.

    why they mock your phone? i'm curious
    Cythera
    Cythera
    That is a beautiful comeback and I am so going to use that haha!

    And my poor phone is mocked because it's so old. It's an S4 mini, and I love it. It works, it's durable, and it isn't built to be obsolete in 6 months so customers buy the convenient new one that just came out :p
    Ami
    Ami
    ah,i see...

    for me,i don't care if my phone is old. i have redmi a3 since 2016 & still usable until now (only my problem is the battery,it bulging & replaced with the new one)
    Curse daylight savings time. I wake up and it's still dark, so I think 'yay, I can go back to sleep for another hour before work!' Nope! Turns out I slept through my alarm this morning >.<

    I half wanna move to arizona to be free of the hassle of daylight savings time... oh and yes i am a time traveler thank you for asking-
    kimo

    Hawaii doesn't have daylight savings time, either. When every day/night is basically 12 hours, what's there to save?

    Many years ago, I was told by someone on the mainland that it was started so cows' milking time changes (circadian rhythm effect) would cause them less stress.

    In any case, my cat doesn't seem to sleep more or less during the day after a time change.

    Where I live, we have to wait for New York to agree with us before we can get rid of daylight savings :ysad:
    Ran into a joke I forgot I wrote while playtesting my own game. Proceeded to have a laughing fit on the floor over my own stupid humour XD
    Today is the day! I will be productive in game dev work! I will - *gets distracted by cat playing with her toy mouse* Awww <3
    Whelp. I tried to be productive.

    Haha! Much to my cat's dismay, I did actually get work done! I finished a new battler transmog in my game :D It was a pain...but I like how it turned out
    Finally able to return to work after months of lockdown. My poor feet are hurting :( I need to get used to working again haha

    Oh yeah, kimo, I buy everything for my game with gift cards from my bday and Xmas. I haven't spent a single cent of my own money on my game, and now it's a personal challenge to finish it that way~ ...I have a life, I swear.
    Thanks for your concern, howabout no, but I'm fine, really ^-^ It was a 6 hour bartending shift; I've done 12+ and lived. I enjoy my job, it's just my feet do not XD

    I don't feel satisfied until my body is sore after work.
    If I am sore when I go to bed, I sleep very well.
    Glad to see you are able to go back to work!

So yesterday Dad took me to Volcano Bay, and it was almost ruined by a thunderstorm... then it passed by and the lightning warning got lifted, leading to an awesome time sliding and swimming. Hopefully we get to go to the arcade tonight. The one we're planning on has a restaurant built in with AWESOME food. Not to mention how big the arcade itself is!

Maybe I'll actually try making a retro pack. Already have the shark fin made so why not xD
Hey everyone, for everybody following along with my RPG Maker MZ streams: There will unfortunately not be a stream tonight. There is a big exciting event that will go live next week that has been taking all my time, so look forward to that!
Took a small break by playing VR. Latest update of these glasses unfortunately caused a little of trouble but it can be fixed with a manual operation.

Until You Fall is freaking awesome.
I am SO HYPED to share this trailer with everyone when its done. I almost want to tear up i had no idea how far i came along with Fallen Feather in these last 3 years.
