  • The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.
    This is it, the part I've been fearing.
    I need to write an Anime Fight Scene, which is a parody of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, which is a show I've never watched.

    Pray for me, forum.
    Decided to remake Mist's sprites. So far, I think the new one looks awesome! The only problem I have is that it's kinda hard to see in-game. Resizing it makes it too big, too... :|
    EDIT: DAMNIT THE P EMOTE WAS THE WRONG ONE
    Okay, I'm gonna try and do a livestream again. I've done some tests, and it doesn't lag if I do it in my living room.
    2:00 PM Central Standard Time, twitch.tv/sweatertheman.

    EDIT: Stream's up now. Even one person watching it helps!

    Please note that we have a maximum of 2 profile posts a day so the feed doesn't become spammy.

    Have you done a livestream before? It might be worth trying a couple of test runs before announcing to everyone that you're doing one. I know Touch has had some trouble getting it working lately on YouTube.

    thanks for the heads up, @Shaz

    I barely remember what I did last time, but I think I should move my setup closer to my WI-FI router next time.

    I would've done some test runs, but I was going to watch some TV with my family, so I didn't have too much time.
    Ok, stream's up, I think! The link to my Twitch is twitch.tv/sweatertheman. I'm gonna talk about the game and my plans for it and stuff, I think it's a good way to let people know it exists.

    there's like a 3 minute delay
    Later tonight, I think I'm gonna do a livestream of me making the game. Get the word out and all that, right?
    Quick tip for any other ametuer pixel artists! When trying to create a colour palette, enabling Antialiasing can speed up the process of creating different shades! Just place your lightest colour and your darkest colour next to each other, select both pixels, and stretch it out!
    Can someone recommend some fun story-heavy RPGs to me? Coming up with good gameplay is a nightmare! I was thinking of making some gameplay platforming-based, but that doesn't work well in RPG form*. I also was thinking of removing battles, but that would be too much like OneShot. I don't even know how to make good puzzles!

    Thanks for the suggestions, you guys. Though when I said RPG games, I didn't necessarily mean RPG Maker games! If there's any non-RM games you recommend, that'd be nice too!

    it might seem dated but look at some of the VERY early RPGs that were ported into america back in the day. A majority of those are story heavy... Im talking sega and sega CD generation games. As time progressed games have become more of a battle central royal instead of focusing on a plot line...

    Sure thing! I like older games.
    Okay, for my second draft, I was think of making the charcter of Five more of an actual villain...kind of.
    Have him be more intimidating and mysterious, having a hand in the mafia, but also be twice as pathetic, because he's a 40 year old man who lives in actual garbage and sends a 17 year old to go kill a vampire for him.

    @TeiRaven You'd said Five was 'an interesting loose-end,' what do you think of having a 'final battle' against Five if the player does extra stuff, but he's extremely underwhelming and dies in, say, 10 hits?

    I think that sounds like it could be very interesting! I haven't had a chance to read the second draft yet, but I like the direction this is headed. Hoping to get some free time to check it out soon!

    Alright then. Take your time!
    Since I post too many questions here, I'm gonna start looking for YouTube tutorials. I feel like it's getting annoying for people to sifting through my submissions.
    So which forum do I use if I want to showcase graphics? I've been using AML forum, but I'm not sure it's correct.

    Yes, that's the one. Unless you want to share your stuff for people to use - in that case it'd be in Resources.
    BRIEF HISTORY OF MY GAME SO FAR
    June 2019 - My friend (let's call him G) says he wants to make a game
    later- it's really bad and angsty
    laterer - He gives up

    EARLY 2020 - I suggest trying again, G says yes
    slightly later - G gives up and gives me the whole idea
    LATE 2020 - I finish the script's first draft. G doesn't like it

    And that's where we stand!
    Shaz

    If G is not prepared to put in the time and effort, after experiencing what's involved in making a game, and is happy to pass it to you but not happy with your work, then I'd say it's time for G to give up all aspects of game making and to do something he enjoys and will commit to, and for you to make a game for yourself, not for G.

    @Shaz I agree with you! I have been making this game for myself, I really think my adaptation of the concept is going to work. G has taken up making a Webcomic, asking for small amounts of help where reasonable. Originally, he wanted to make the game in Scratch, though! (No offense if you're reading this G!)

    @Doinathing, Scratch? Wow. (He says with two Scratch tabs open currently haha) RPG Maker is much more intuitive and versatile than Scratch, trust me.
    Uh, I'm probably overthinking this, but I think that some of my music sounds kinda...bad?
    The melodies are just sort of awkward, and don't flow.
    I'm really not sure what to do. Why am I even worrying about this? I don't even have a battle system yet!
    Doinathing

    Okay, thanks for all the advice on making maps before music! Uh, quick question, how should I plan my areas? I should maybe make a thread about this?

    music is a language that needs to be learned.
    and as such, if you're used to one particular accent, it might sound weird when you listen the original dialect of another language, pure.
    people accustomed to JRPG music will not see how to work with Western music for the same kind of game.... they're fundamentally different, like two different languages.

    @gstv87 You said my thoughts exactly!

    Someone told me that making music in a DAW is a lot different from playing live. The same person also told me to spend more time on the fifth (dominant), and when I did both of those things, the song I was making got like, ten times better!
    Okay, so I'm working on Draft 2 of my game's script.
    Will try to keep you guys posted, if you're interested!
    Well, after many months, the script for my game is done!
    Now I can dedicate my time to actually making the game!

    If enough people ask, I might post a view only link or something.

FastFood in my country is neither fast nor cheap like it's expected to be, but people still buy a lot of it. I don't want to imagine how much of it people would eat if it was.
Started finishing up my bosses and characters...I don't know how long...but its going to take long...

I ended up needing to do a chapter one world map remake. It's still WIP but coming along nicely. =D
Stream will be live shortly! I will be beginning a play-through of Resident Evil 4! Feel free to drop by!
