  • 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?

    @Hudell To say nothing of obligations such as work, school, homework, family, pets, housecleaning... frankly, it's a miracle a lot of us get anything done sometimes!

    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.


    Being a professional programmer can sometimes be this exciting :)

    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 :)

    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.
    DoubleX
    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 :)

    One day I will finish my project in ace and buy RMMV! Can't wait to join in. But I have to finish this project first!
    Getting rid of all control coupling in RMMV plugins can be hard at times :)

    nio kasgami
    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 :)
    Is our godlike scripter TheoAllen back? Looking forward to RMMV plugins made by this almighty :)

    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.
    Simply don't buy any resource before reading all its terms of uses. If you're "strongly supposed" to do it that way, you should seriously suspect it's just a scam :)
    It turns out that nearly all my plugins written so far have quite some nontrivial bugs, and 1 of them might even have to be rewritten entirely. I still have some other user requests to be solved, but recently I'm just too busy to solve them before finishing fixing all my own mistakes first. Nevertheless, I should still apologize to them as it's my fault making my plugins having so many bugs lol

    Tsukihime's ATB tutorial's simply flawless. I guess Yanfly's ATB tutorial will be flawless too, if he/she will write one :)

    The old forum hat mobile support, and friends also if you were going onto a profile you always landed on the [about me] page which was much better. I would only like to have a few functions back.

    Nope... I am still trying up to do some stuff like changing my profile, correcting/editing my siggy, see my contact list, hope the tags works every time in posts, search for the button to flush my all read notifications instead to flush the whole forum unread tread, try to see what posts were like in a tread when announced instead of the whole tread and attempt to make a guess. 


    On the good side we are now all equals without medals and messaging works better and take formatting faster.  I guess it will take a little bit to have all bugs and misfunctiunalities fixed.  And hey; we canpostpictures in our statue now!

Rpgmaker devs announcing a new version then looking to see what the fans hope/speculate: shorturl.at/hlFGZ
Soon back to "engine study" I guess. Depending on the future plugin need.
New engine announced. Meanwhile I'm still here finishing a project in ACE.
I'm happy to learn a new system. Even if it doesn't meet my needs, it's something to help support the developer and see more people enter into game making industry.
I think I'll stick with MV for now - my next big entertainment purchase is already made: Rust on PS4 babbbyyyy!
