  • 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.

    There are times when you just really need to rest.
    I'm sure when you've rested enough, the motivation starts to come back
    and new idea emerges. :D
    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
    "Bah, I don't need a plugin for this boss's main combat mechanic! I'll make it myself with states and troops events and my great Javascript knowledge and coding abilities!"
    *5 minutes and an infinite loop later* It...needs some tweaking....

    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.
    That moment when you find a wormhole in your game o_O Enter a door in one town and find yourself in a shop in another town! Exit the shop, and find yourself in that other town!

    I'd love to, but I think that's illegal according to physics? Super lame plugin; who decided to install that in this version of reality? >.>

    Yah, I'm super excited for it. Unsubscribing from my contact lenses provider will be so satisfying haha!

    The bill is why I think twice :kaoswt2:

    I could never do contact lenses thanks to my eyes being too sensitive.
    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.
    Making an RPG is a lot like playing an RPG.

    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*
    So. I done good. I forgot the beginner rules of plugin use. >.>

    Heh, I've still forgotten to turn off an autorun and wonder why my game is not working and I've been using the engine for...6 years now.

    Oh no! We've all been there, bg :3
    The worst is the panicking you do trying to find and then solve the problem, only to realize it was a beginners' mistake. Congrats, you win shame! Please insert 5 hours to play again.
    Phew, just took my chemistry exam today! Ready to play some games and maybe get some more project work in!
    If anyone's got a game they want feedback on...let me know. Too many choices; I can't decide! I give good feedback :3 And ya know, if you wanna try my game in exchange... ;)

    @Cythera, is a difficult chemistry exam? What do you learn? I am ok with the chemistry subject.
    Cythera
    Cythera
    Thanks; I'm hoping I passed too! Felt really confident with the exam.
    And no, Kupo, it's not very hard - least, I didn't find the course difficult. It involved organic chemistry, electrochemistry, thermochemistry, and equilibriums (solids, solutions, and acids & bases).
    I get the results for the exam later this week. I'll see how 'difficult' the course is once my final mark is in haha!

    @Cythera, ok, you are finishing the class with the final exam lol. I hope you get good great. I still have to finish your game. It is really good lol. Let mix the baking powder with vinegar party lol.
    Another day, another microwave accidently set on fire! >.< I just wanted popcorn for a movie night...
    I was just high-fiving myself for all I've learnt in the engine, and how far I've come, only to forget to remove the Immortal state from a semi-scripted battle. Now the enemy never dies and I feel so smart >.>
    Playtest your stuff. Always playtest.

    Making silly mistakes is NEVER a bad thing as long as you know quickly what was causing it to go wrong - the knowledge and confidence you have in that is the greatest symbol you can have of how far you really have come with the engine.

    That said, yeah, dozens of playtests before a public release is not optional!
    My life lessons of the week:
    - Do not microwave ketchup
    - Check for tinfoil on peanut butter tubs before microwaving
    - Do laundry in small lots rather than one big lot that you have to cram into drawers
    - What do you mean it's only Monday?!
    - I am not ready to adult :(
    Oh, my project thread got approved really fast! ^-^
    Hey, who wants to playtest a game?!

Finished another GUI! Turn indicator wasn't made by me.

Added a small refining scene to my game.

It makes sense that you try to focus on the squishy mages at the back of the party first, right? If the mage can out-DPS the enemy DPS before the latter can kill the tank in front, the fight becomes boring.
