  • Ah, struggles of art. When you know your lines are straight but can't tell if they're perfectly vertical on the page.

    :(  I like drawing by hand and still do it before doing a digital drawing but doing stuff on the computer definitely eliminates some of the issues you can have.
    Well, I just read somewhere that there are too many horror RM games out there. *Hides messed up RM game* What? Horror? Don't know what you're talking about!  :rswt:

    I dunno about too many, but they definitely seem like a popular thing to make, especially considering the developer (usually) doesn't have to worry about battles and stats and skill formulas and all that epic RPG stuff that can start to get really tedious. Less chance of getting worn out on the project and giving up, I suppose?

    @Euphony Interesting point. Although, I would say that for giving up all that rpg heavy stuff, environment and writing become all the more important. Puzzles to if there are those in the game.

    I'm curious though, how many of them are *good* RM horror games. I think RM is a difficult engine for making a decent horror game. That being said, I've not played any of these, so I don't know. Just speculating.
    Ah, chibi, so much fun, and so impossibly adorable in the end. I've decided to do all my shopkeepers, tavernkeepers, etc as chibi (I need some lightheartedness in my game, or it'll all be depressing trash). It was fun, and actually didn't take me a long time. I'm debating... should I do my battle HUD's in this style? Ahh, I'm so conflicted! 
    Ah... and here's the debate. Should I put up my game in Project Development or Early Project Feedback? I'm not sure, because I'm not that early in it, but I'm not really at the demo stage either. Decisions, decisions...

    Well if you can't conceive of a demo being offered, I wouldn't put it in project development. Going along with that a good Demo length to me for a game that is at least a a few hours in scope is probably 30min to an hour or one chapter/section of the game.

    I'd go with Early Project Feedback, since there is no demo yet. You can always report it and ask it to be moved when it is ready to go to project development, as long as it meets the guidelines for that section too.

    Man, I'm seeing these entries, and they all seem more like full time projects than two week games. It's like, "how do you make this in this short amount of time?" I'm having doubts. 
    OK, so I haven't started my game for the contest. I have, however, figured out how to use the main script my game's based around, so at least that's a start. Trust me. I--I'm not completely lost. Just-- just trust. XD

    Hey, start noooww. :p  Jokes aside, that's a good start, now you gotta implement it!
    Yo! I knew XP was on sale, but I never knew it'd be such a steal! I just got it for five bucks!

    When I feel I just stole from Degica in a sale I just sprite the missing sprites :p
    Hey man Rpgmaker xp is 80% off on steam right now :) I remember you had trouble with a sprite a while back.

    Eh, we have all been faced against the final boss of gamemaking, procrastination. It has a weakness against Physical moves.


    Seriously, it happens a lot to me too, I'm always like "Okay let's continue the game ! I'll just immerse myself in my project first !"


    Then I replay the last 10 minutes or so. And when it's done :


    "Alright, let's......not do that. Imma go look up stuff on YouTube instead !"

    Woooow, you're right ! I never noticed ! JRPGs nowadays are way more weaboo and fanservice-based than old ones ! Or maybe that's just because old ones had way too many limitations. Or maybe weaboos were born because of Internet and Internet only, so old JRPGs such as Chrono Trigger (I recognized yay) were not "pressured" by the growing influence of a certain group of people *cough cough*


    Oh, and don't worry, every RPG has at least one or two little anime girls.


    (As long as you don't break Touhou's record you should be fine.)
    Why am I so bad at MV's battle system?! Every game I've play tested, I've died really early on because my attacks do nothing.  :(

    Everyone else's that I've beta tested. Could be because I don't have MV, so I don't get to practice, but still, I'd die in three turns! 
    Vox Novus
    Vox Novus
    Hmm, maybe just the games you are playing. You having MV shouldn't really effect how skilled you are at playing rpgs made in MV if you've played a decent number of rpgs otherwise.
    HexMozart88

    True, especially since I've played the one in Ace countless times and I haven't died once. And this is essentially the same concept. 
    Since when do I have 600 posts?! Jeez. I really have no life.  :(

    Ah, it gets easy to rack them up some time, posting in month and goals or map screenshots threads or putting up status updates.
    So nervous... I'm trying to do sprites, I think I'm going to draw them... but don't know how they'll look... (oddly enough, I can make anything with pixel art except people. Go figure.)

    Finding a base to start off of is usually how a lot of people get into it to begin with, then they expand from there. Never tried myself though. After drawing character portraits and battlers, I didn't have the energy for spriting lol. Might try though for MV when I go to it.
    What is it with the weird dates on some of the user pages? Like, on Archeia's page, it says she hasn't visited since May, but she was just on. It says the same for Yanfly too. Apparently they haven't visited since January. But I swear they were on just yesterday.

    @bgillisp I don't think so. For example, yours says for me "4 minutes ago", but I didn't visit you 4 minutes ago. Archeia's always says May 5 for me, no matter how many times I go to it.
    HexMozart88

    And I wasn't even a member in January. But sure enough, it always says January 18th on Yanfly's page. 
    Who else here has horrible posture? I'm not even joking. I have to have broken some sort of record. Is it just a thing with game developers? Or is it just because of my inability to read code without leaning in?

    Ah. You guys are gonna have to get over looking at people's eyes! That is how you communicate! Veeeeeerrrrrry offensive to look away when people talk to you! :p

    Anyway, best of luck with this whole thing!

    @sharm Semantics! :p

    But to clarify, I'd say in the USA/Canada, at any rate.  (Most western/modern cultures)
    My game-making cycle: 


    > Dream up an extravagant idea while doing something random


    > Try to implement said idea and having no idea where to start


    > Failing Miserably after getting lost


    > Crying for ten or so minutes


    > Stopping


    > Thinking of a different extravagant idea... which probably will turn out the same way.

    Oh.


    Sad, but not inaccurate.


    That's probably why I started thinking more rationally on my projects recently.
    Should I be changing my profile pic? Is this just a Halloween thing? I'm getting lost here. You're all just changing your profile pics, some of you, even your name! It's hard to follow!

Oh no. Necessity is the mother of invention. Do I want to know what happened?
