  • 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 ._.

    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 ._.

    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

    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" =)

    @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
    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.

    I once bought some microwavable Indian snacks (samosas, bhajis, etc), and all of them lacked flavour. They were genuinely tasteless. lol.

    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 :(

    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'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

    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

    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 >.<

    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.

    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!
    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

    kirbwarrior
    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.
    Cythera
    Cythera
    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...
    Wavelength
    Wavelength
    ...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.
    Cythera
    Cythera
    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!

    RCXDan
    @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:

This is the End of the Endurance,everyone are celebrating the end of their Endurance

I just wondering what Menu for Tomorrow
Two years into developing my game and I just scrolled through the BaseResource Pack that comes with MV for the first time xD I never knew how much awesome stuff was in there. Also so many names I know from the forum, like Shaz & Archeia ... and that's not the only resource pack I found in the depth of my hard drive :0 Right now I'm both confused and hyped about all the stuff I own.
Decided to start watching Naruto; and not only is it a genuinely good series, but it's also very inspiring.
I just wish Funimation got its act together and fix the missing dubbed episodes.
Decided to work on my game a little bit, made this Motel looking building. I am still on temporary hiatus though as getting Therapy is more difficult than I thought.
Every game that has an option to choose to turn on the subtitle at the first time setup deserves an award.
