A friendly reminder to everyone: IF you're messing around with the data folders, MAKE A BACKUP. I just accidentally deleted half of my game, but I'm not going to give up yet. I'm going to work hard to bring my game back to what it had been, and I'll make it better than ever. This status is mainly me making sure I don't despair and give up on my project. Now, I have no choice but to finish my game, or else be seen as a liar.
Random Observation of the Day: If you set an event to move with a specific button pressed as player touch, then have it transfer you within the same room, the event will stay in the same spot. This means, to all other RPG Maker newbs like me, you can create a two party block puzzle that moves events based on how you move blocks.
That awkward moment when you replay a game you started and realized that you made it unwinnable because you made the butterfly of doom too fast. Made even worse when you can't edit the game for not having the full version of Ace.
Feeling overwhelmed by this project's scope lately, and lured by other projects; but it also feels like I'm on the verge of a turning point, almost finished laying the "foundations" and can soon start building the real structure. In other words, the dreaded "middle phase lull." I recognize and will resist it. So, the latest work: battle sprite for the second major party member.
