  • Just tried to access my pastebin, then cloudflare said the pastebin website has been flagged as phishing, so I guess many of my plugin download links are broken...

    Yeah I figured you would have backups; the work to migrate everything may be annoying, but it probably won't do what pastebin did and flag them for phishing, which is just weird.

    Fortunately, I can access the pastebin website just fine now, even though I still don't know what pastebin and/or cloudflare was doing :)

    Anyone here managed to never burn out on programming? My current limit is 3 months(6-8 hours per day, 7 days per week, 50 hour programming week on average), and then I just have to take a break, sometimes lasting few days(with at most 2 hours on programming per day). I've been always like this so far, so I admire those who can always be so passionate on programming :)

    with that said, sometimes I dont even notice and just keep coding away, and then when i can tell im super close to finishing a thing, I get even more motivated. Its kinda a strange one imo :D

    In my case of documentation and unit tests, I know that having them written is nice, and I want them written badly. But when I'm writing them, I can't stop asking myself: Why I'm writing such tedious codes?
    I wish one day I'll enjoy writing them as well, not just enjoying having them written. Right now all I can do is to tell myself to just focus on the task, and it doesn't always work :)

    for me it's more related to art ut as FAR you can be passionnate for something you have to take a break.

    but not only passion but also health I have sensible nerf in my left hand so I have to be carefull to not injure it. (even today I have to take a break to relax it)
    I generally do phew hours per day and mosto f the time skip a day in the week to recharge. Both for passion and health reasons.
    What are your experience on trying to boost a MV project on an Android 7+ phone to a constant 60 fps? It's very hard for me(mine is 720x1440 px with Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 and Adreno 506), especially with an ATB system plugin. The best minimum I can get is 30+ fps :)

    Might be better posting a proper thread. The character limit here makes it difficult to give a decent answer.

    That's a Snapdragon 625 cpu, sadly it's not particularly fast for MV games, also depends about the size and complexity of your games.
    I had a Mi Max 3 with a 636 and Adreno 509 and my two short minigames ran just fine, but then again, they don't use many plugins and like I said are rather short.

    I've just posted a hopefully proper thread for this :)
    Any full time professional programmer here who can pump out 2+ plugins/scripts per week? I wish I could learn from such productive people :)

    A week is actually a lot of time if you have no distractions, but that is the catch - Who doesn't procrastinate those days?

    You'd definitely need a good schedule otherwise it'd fall a part. Or you know, ideas to work on and the size of the plugin.
    Never knew that faulty fan could reset a PC. I thought it was virus but now my hardisk's MFTs' toast due to a reset during boot time scan.

    The PC resets because it gets too hot and for safety measures, it shuts itself off.
    It sucks but it happens quite often, a good fan and cooling system are a must.

    I can confirm on what Farr said from personal experience. My first ever laptop died like that, and for about half a year leading up to it, it used to overheat too fast and switch off randomly.
    After not having written C++ for 5+ years, I feel I've to relearn its syntax again. Luckily I've not forgotten its concepts yet :)
    Greetings DoubleX!


    I was interested in your discussion about ATB and its implementation in RMMV.


    To be honest, I'm on my final phase of my thesis, and I was conducting research on ATB (Active Time Battle) on how this ATB actually made changes and improve the default battle system.


    With that being said, I was planning on using your ATB plugins, but ended up using Yanfly's Active Turn Battle instead, but I am still interested with the flowcharts and any other discussion you've made about ATB battle process.


    I was hoping that I can formally cite your works as a reference on my thesis.


    Is there a way that I may communicate with you regarding this matter?


    I apologize if there are any inappropriate or inconvenient sentences about my request.


    And I also apologize to the moderator or any administrator if this kind of content is not meant to be posted in this section, I will read the rules carefully from now on.


    Thank you very much, I'm looking forward for your reply.

    HI Enlaccza, this is indeed not allowed in Status Feeds. Post in JS Support boards and/or PM DoubleX instead :)
    Just worked overnight for 3 days straight, and now I'm finally at home.

    Oh my gosh! Don't work too hard! hahaha I am glad it was exciting! Thanks for your help you are awesome!
    When I'm motivated, I can be relatively productive for several weeks; When I'm burnt out, I can be relatively inactive for several weeks. Seems like that's been periodic to me for several years lol
    I wonder how many RMMV plugin users don't know that one does not simply change the filename of a RMMV plugin. Doing so could break that plugin entirely :)
    Zeriab

    RM does have a history of applying functionality and meaning onto the projects filenames.


    Such fun surprises to discover!
    Hudell
    Hudell
    Well, most scripters are now adding a notetag to the plugin description and using that to load the plugin parameters, instead of using the filename.
    DoubleX
    Yeah, it's just that there are still some outliers, so plugin users may still want to search for instructions before changing the RMMV plugin filename :)
    I've just read Yanfly's announcements regarding his/her health.


    I honestly think that, it's a bit unhealthy for the majority of the RMMV communities to rely on a single plugin developer.


    I feel that someone else has to step up. Doing so should do at least slightly more good than harm for Yanfly(for being less overburdened), those stepping up(for increased popularity), and the RMMV communities as a whole(for having more choices) :)

    I"m stating this cuz fricking internet mades us kinda of "proud" of **** whe shouldn't be of. We get hurt over **** that has nothing to do with how things trully are. We are getting sick over unimportant things. Maybe that's why yanfly got sick. IDK him/her, frick...this **** sounds like one of those LGBTSSDDUNNOHOW MANNY LETTERS thing, i'll replace the he/she with rabbit, k? K.

    Rabbit uses ******* and has some income from it thx to the amount of donations and this happened cuz of the constant releases probably and we all here know how problematic is to make a game just using raw mechanic stuff from rpg maker and how important having a programmer aboard is, right? If it wasn't for rabbit and Victor and DreamX and SumDe-can't remember the rest of the nick cuz it's huge as frick- i wouldn't be able to say that my core mechanics are done, that my game is fine besides the art part cuz my friend's mom died a couple of weeks ago and he was absent for a long time due to her cancer. I can use the RTP and design stuff and those plugins thx to all those guys and i can keep developing wile my friend gets over it. It's fricking frustrating that i have to lock a project cuz i can't go on with a design.

    I don't care about who steps in, i don't care if yanfly release stuff every 6 months cuz with what's out right now you can build a godamm game with a good use of RTP, most people can't even use it.

    I know that the one who steps in will be a good mother****er and will probably do things slower. No worries about at all.

    But there is a growing culture around here that "Yanfly or GTFO" that is a bit worrysome. 
    With now Yanfly becoming much less active at least for a while, I guess this culture will begin to change, or at least be slightly deterred before Yanfly becomes active again(in which he/she might be even more overburdened than before) :)
    Thoroughly comprehending RMMV VE - Active Time Battle is extremely complicated, convoluted and costly for a nub like me. I've spend 12 hours already and still just have a basic knowledge on it :)

    @DoubleX - I always found @Victor Sant stuff to go over my head for whatever reason lol.


    He is one of the best programmers here imo.

    In fact the base logic of the ATB is pretty simple, what made the code complicated (and long) are the extra options to control the behavior and display of the ATB.
    DoubleX
    The biggest challenge for me is to thoroughly comprehend how casting action works, in which I've spent nearly 4 hours for that alone lol
    Yanfly's ATB and CTB are simply godsends to the RMMV communities :)

    Getting rid of all control coupling in RMMV plugins can be hard at times :)

    what you mean control coupling?
    DoubleX
    From wikipedia, control control is one module controlling the flow of another, by passing it information on what to do (e.g., passing a what-to-do flag).
    I've just planned to try to thoroughly comprehend Mellye's ATB and Yanfly's ATB when I have free time :)

    You can compare the activity between the RGSSx Support, Completed RGSS3 scripts, RGSS3 requests(or equivalent subforums) in RMW, VXAN, RMRK and GDU, and the RMMV counterparts in those communities. You can also compare the formers nowadays with those before RMMV is announced.


    From my observations on these forums, it seems to me that RMVXA has completed entered the long tail part :)

    People are not abandoning Ace.  Your scripts will still be very popular :)

    by that, I mean that there are quite a few people who have stated outright that they're not going to move to MV, and are themselves hoping that scripters and artists continue to support Ace.

Got inspired and started writing a simple tower defence battle system last night :o
Good news! I have located an amazing 3D website called SketchFab that has rotatable renderings of famous statues!
Picked up a physical copy of Megadimension Neptunia VII for the PS4 today. It's pretty good. I'm having a lot of fun with it.
The only upside of this remote semester was the plenty of funny photoshop material those facecams provided. Not that I would do that. Ever.
