  • Well now that my intern has left, hopefully she wasn't too useless. Honestly you step out for one cultist meeting to summon Lord Em Zed to deal with some spandex wearing teenagers, and she's already changing all of my avatars. :LZSskeptic: I guess we know who's volunteering for our sacrifice next week. :mrsatan:

    I'd like to take this moment to talk about summoning and cults. Just because you summon doesn't mean you're in a cult, and not all cults summon. And people who sacrifice without chanting are wasting a person.

    That's what I'm saying, too many unfair stereotypes about innocent cults. I mean sometimes we just want to gather together to barbecue in a backyard, and not at the human sacrifice pits. People can be so unfair! :kaolivid:

    And I don't know about sacrifices without chanting being a waste, how else are we supposed to deal with Karens who want to see the manager? :kaoback:

    Oh whatever man, you do this every week. "Oh, this time we're really gonna sacrifice someone." Ten to one you're gonna end up at Wendy's grabbing a Baconator. Let's do something real, man
    At first I was like... Geez, I should probably get a better microphone so I can do YouTube stuff. Then I tried my headset and discovered it actually sounds pretty good (with the right filter setup)... But I haven't really listened to my own recorded voice much... So I was quickly doing voice impressions and cracking up. No RM work was done this night. :kaoswt:

    Have you given yourself a dark lord voice morph? :p I have a program called Morph Vox Pro that has a lot of fun voice changers, one of which is a dark lord.

    I can actually do a deep dark voice. I considered that... Then again I also don't want to scare people away from my RM stuff, at least not videos on how to do stuff. But if I play the narrator for my game or if I decide to read horror stories or something... I'm set. :LZSwink:
    I'm kind of debating on how much to include in my tools plugin. It's basically has the formulas I use for event vs event/array proximity, player vs event/array proximity, how my events track the player, how they locate objects, a data scoop for on player direction and a data scoop for any spot you want. Somehow I don't think the normies would use most of that. :kaoswt:

    Maybe I should just give them my event interaction formulas and call it a day. I did at the very least promise some people that. :kaoswt:

    Honestly I didn't really write it for other people to use. I mean they can, it is after all just lots of formulas. I could just package the 4 formulas I have for if events are too close or too far, and the ones if events are too close or too far from the player. Those 4 formulas basically handle all the interactions in my game anyway. It's what people have been asking for.
    Whoa! What happened here? You do not look at all like I thought you would look behind that cloak!
    As I remake my entire game in particles... (because solid graphics are for silly people)... I can't help but hear the intro to the "Particle Man" song. :kaoswt:
    @Lornsteyn This is of course your fault for suggesting Eclipse from Berserk to me. :LZSwink:




    Decided to take a break from working on the other area to rework this one. I've done two major randomizer restructures since I even looked at it. :kaoback:




    Lots of reworking ahead, definitely not satisfied with how it looks right now. :LZSskeptic:

    Not yet, but it's on the road to it. :LZSwink: I really only planned two biomes that were all nice... One just happen to be at the beginning so I've been working it more than others. The other 4... well... We're going down the rabbit hole. :LZSexcite: Depending on how long it takes there might be more.. But I need those 6 biomes to specifically tell the story I have planned.

    Oh wow, I looked that up.... Yes, I will make something horrifying like that. Probably not for this area... But near the end, oh yes. :LZSexcite:
    Realizing my old water was ugly and the embodiment of all that is failure in this world... I have devised a much better method of animating it. :LZSwink:

    Lighting...



    No lighting...


    I'm still experimenting, but it seems so promising. :LZSexcite:

    I did not realize tonight would be the night that I would completely redefine how I do things. No longer will I need Mog Character Motion, Mog Character Particles or Mog Weather EX.... This new method also uses overwhelming less RAM and CPU. :LZSexcite:

    The best thing about that comment is the person on Instagram who just said last night, "This game style is very beautiful". One thing is for certain, my graphics are very polarizing. :LZSexcite: But yeah I like this new look way better as well. :LZSwink:
    Before protests/riots... California was slowly removing the lockdown.
    After protests/riots... Californians are now "required" to wear cloth masks (as of yesterday) for the first time since the pandemic began.

    RIP dreams of the outside world. :kaocry:
    On the bright side, it seems people want to give me infinite time to work on my game. :LZSexcite:
    So I keep a lot of backups.... And I mean way, way back. Most of them I keep to remember how far I've come. Something I think everybody should try. So for those interested in a walk down memory lane...
    Two months in...


    4 months in... Yes I edited rat heads onto everything. XD
    Being the absolute mad lad that I am.... I put the lighting plugin back in. :LZSwink:

    Ah okay that makes sense. One of the things I do is I setup a count, and ever 60 frames it goes up by 1. Then I run a check to see what number it's at, and if the player is within range of a spot. If they are, I put the enemy just off the screen so they player sees them doing their behavior. And if the player is too far away I remove the enemy. But the count is running so the enemy "moves" even off screen. :LZSwink:

    Yeah I have a "narrator" event, it's watching the player's location and providing "entertainment" for the player at all times. Also there is nothing saying the event can' t keep more than one count. Or spawn based on other conditions. :LZSwink:

    From this point all of my sparkles identify as Spanish ones, for that extra stealth factor. :LZSwink:

    Well I am working on an early combat stress test video. It should be up either tonight or tomorrow. So you'll get more "SPORKLES". :LZSwink: I decided to break it and the world creation mechanic videos up. It turns out the areas don't start like that, you actually free the pieces so they can spawn in the world. And I'm working on letting the player imprison stuff so it is removed from the world as well. :LZSexcite:

    You know.... Here I've been uploading to Twitter (I still can't wash the stink off) and Instagram. But I've been using Imgur to upload private images for Profile Posts here.... Wait... Why am I not making the images public?! :kaoback:
    It's better animated. :LZSwink:

    So I saw the overwhelming improves to graphics processing caused by just updating my game to PIXI 4.8.9, and I was like... Well what if we do PIXI 5? Yeah... Haha, still trying to beat that one into submission. I wonder if there's a guide somewhere. :kaoswt:
    The most useful thing about MZ? I learned that MV has a dark mode. :LZSexcite: I have no idea why I never thought to check. :kaoswt:

    only problem is that once you learn that MV has a dark mode, VX Ace becomes basically unusable.

Stream will be live shortly! I will be beginning a play-through of Resident Evil 4! Feel free to drop by!

1st iteration on castle interior in Tiled.
I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.
The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
