  • Alright, I guess I'll finally swap out placeholder monsters for the animated ones... I mean I guess, geez. :LZSwink:
    Not going to lie, the whole 12 free games over 12 days on the Epic basically stopped me from buying anything on Steam this sale. Well played Epic, well played.
    I haven't seen the last 5 Star War movies, just the first 6. Reddit tells me Darth Binks took over the senate and took an apprentice named Kathleen Kennedy. As Reddit clearly never lies, this must be true. :LZSexcite:

    Wow, sounds like Disney would have made a lot more money with these new films if each was just 2 hours of following baby Yoda. :LZSwink:

    Haven't seen any of the new ones either. No desire to. Now, if Darth Binks was actually in them, then I might be interested.

    Definitely, in fact Darth Binks is so cool that they should retcon Darth Revan in Knights of the Old Republic to be Darth Binks. And they should retcon baby Yoda to be Darth Binks as well! In fact there is probably a little bit of Darth Binks in all of us. We'll retcon everybody as Darth Binks! :LZSexcite:

    Sorry, I guess I did miss the joke. I suppose it's what happens when you get so used to dealing with people complaining about every little thing on the forums.

    Long ago when the Internet was green and good, before the crystal cracked.... I ran a very, very large forum. Just thinking back to then and the vast majority of complaints I'd get, then imagining that magnified by the snowflakes of today. I don't envy you. You and other mods do a fantastic job. Don't let anybody else tell you different.
    Alright I need a scripter, mapper, artist, composer and writer. But I need everybody to wear red shirts so I can have a RPG Maker team poker Straight Flush. :LZSexcite:

    But as the clear and obviously most important person in this project, you have to be the one to claim all the credit and be the only one to sell the game right? Can't let your underlings start getting ideas else next they'll want to be paid! That's just blasphemy there. :o

    Wait a minute ... aren't the people wearing red shirts always the ones who die on away missions?

    Yeah but I'll be sure to raise a drink for them afterwards. Also their sacrifice won't be in vein as I'll still have the game to sell. When you think about it I'm really the generous one giving their lives meaning. :LZSexcite:
    Did you know only 6 lines of code prevents Yanfly's Event Spawner from spawning over events? If only I'd figured that out 9 months ago when I was still using it. :LZSskeptic:

    Reminds me of playing FFXV

    After over like 90+h realized I could use multiple of an item to craft more then 4 spells....yes I am dumb...and felt like idiot. Even though the overall is there to press RB to use more then just one...I just didn't do it...

    Isn't it funny? How Weird Al and Christmas always put you in the mood for Fallout? I experience a similar thing with Justin Beiber, Labor Day and Final Fantasy VII

    Spend 2 days trying to figure out what's wrong with my plugin's code. Discover MV's own system is returning it's built in CV # = Map X of this Event.... as 0. I thought I was going crazy! :o
    My favorite thing about this forum update is the artwork that makes Harold flying a giant puzzle piece while wielding a mallet canon to Harold lore. :hwink:

    @TheStranger Please! Yanfly's plugins are more like class C drugs. Everybody has them, they're relatively harmless and up until recently they weren't even regulated. The real darkest depths of RPGotham are home to the truly exotic Class A Plugins like Moghunter's....

    Legends say the Chrono Engine mixed with innocent class A plugins has ended the life of more RM projects than any other. Listen kids, don't mix strange plugins. :LZSsad:

    @Tw0Face You are brave to insult Hero Overlord Harold as it is now canon that he is flying overhead lobbing a Mjölnir Mallet at dissenters to his most holy and rightful rule. Do you really want to go back to that time when those monsters Lucius, Marsha, and Therese roamed free?! :o

    Oh status "like farming" was very real, it was basically the "like meta" before the new look. Now they just gave it a new name to show what it truly represents. Hopefully they don't split the various like options into 6 categories, else we'll need a meta for each. xD
    Geez, 200 likes?! Mistakes were clearly made, now you'll never get rid of me! :LZScheeze:
    MV's a weird program, I deleted a lot of maps that I wasn't using anymore and set a transfer command to go to map 2....
    ImaginaryVillain
    ImaginaryVillain
    Worth noting I had to edit the MapInfos file and add it back in as just giving it a map 163 wasn't enough.

    Similarly, if you delete files, make sure you have no events that use them or you'll get an error. Played a lot of games where random events look for audio files that don't exist.
    ImaginaryVillain

    Yeah, thankfully I only spawn in events these days. So it's very rarely been an issue. I mean other than the time I switched all the sound effects some months after I started... Yeah that was fun and exciting. Yes... fun.... and... exciting...
    In open rebellion against all the back up your project posts, I won't backup my project again today! :LZSrasp:

    I usually playtest every 5 minutes so the problem of losing progress because of not saving doesn't happen to me. But MV crashing and files being corrupt happens lot :) I usually make a backup every week. But recently because I haven't been productive, I haven't been backing up my project. Been a few months. I guess I won't lose anything if it goes corrupt now lol
    ImaginaryVillain
    ImaginaryVillain
    @Hyouryuu-Na Yes, it will be fine.... Mwahahahahaha... *coughs* ...er... I mean nothing will go wrong. =D

    @The Mighty Palm I lost myself to corruption long ago. Though my project is secretly safe, the joke is that I said again... Meaning I already backed it up once today. ;)

    @Poryg I fix a friend's Windows 8 machine earlier today, does that count? Pretty certain it's a resident of a lower layer.
    So if I rig a randomly generated map to only update quadrants the player is in/nearby... I can vastly increase map size. :LZSexcite:

    After a few hours of messing with the absolute mess of code I left for myself last night, I arrived at 80 or so lines of code and it works great! Early tests allow me to squeeze 700-800 events on a 100x100 map with 55-60 fps except when populating a region, then it falls to around 30 fps for 1-2 seconds.
    ImaginaryVillain
    ImaginaryVillain
    This is likely due to the sloppy repurposed room generation code I threw together last night. Still very solid results, previously around 200 events was where issues were happening. :LZSexcite:
    ImaginaryVillain
    ImaginaryVillain
    And if I trigger the events to simply unspawn once outside of range... It never bogs down, at over 2000 events it was still doing 60 fps with the 30 fps during generation. This has possibilities. :LZSgrin:
    140/320 maps updated with new region settings... This bottle of alcohol needs to be a lot bigger. :LZSskeptic:

    I generally try to have a good Trance Music mix lined up in advance for tasks like that - a stiff drink makes me too likely to make mistakes that I won't notice until much later.

    If this bottle of alcohol WERE a lot bigger, you would have some very ... er ... interesting ... maps by the time you got to 320!

    @Wavelength Ha! You act like I need to be drinking to make mistakes. Oh wait... :LZSsad:

    @Shaz Or really interesting maps up until maybe 260-280, messes till about 300 and a keyboard imprint on my face with 60 unfinished maps in the morning. :LZScheeze:

convention concluded, i'm glad the books well received and sold out
not every content is decent, but i'll be better for the next work.

now back to game developing
I hope to be able to post my vxace resource edits this Wednesday.
Not sure if I'll get to the library though.
Me: Man, I'm definitely burned out this time. Time for a break. Me three hours later: I'm ready to work again, let's go! Me another hour later: Okay, I can't do this anymore. Repeat for infinity.
Just got MV and am working on porting over my new game from VX Ace to it! I haven't done much with my new game so it should be pretty quick.
I was doing forge runs on D2 with my wife last night, and singing like a leprechaun to annoy her XD. I was calling it 'The Farge'
