Just read through the EULA on Steam for MZ... Fun things to note, you have to register with the company before using the software, only install it on 3 computers, "User Games must not violate laws or public morality, or threaten such violations" and "The User may not take any other actions the Company deems inappropriate." MV has no such EULA on Steam.... Interesting.
That disturbing moment when MZ with only my plugins plus Particle Emitter fails to out perform MV with my entire game's host of plugins turned on. Huh... It wasn't even close. Perhaps it handles PIXI Particles poorly. No clue, was just kind of poking at the trial to see if Community Lighting could easily be made to sort of work on it. Not invested in MZ yet.
Messing with the "Trail of MZ", turns out Particle Emitter works if you don't use plugin commands, QPlus, QMovement, QSprite all work as long as you don't use VS Event/Movement. Mog Weather Ex, Galv Map Projectiles, Community Lighting, and Yanfly Self Variables all broke... My message, visuals, tools, and map creator appear to work. I expected worse....
Everybody else: OMG I can't sleep! Geez MZ NOW! Open! Open! Open! //face on store window
Me: Don't mind me, just making space graphics. MZ? Can I move my game into it? No? Oh... K... //goes back to making space graphics.
I think it's time to stop ignoring my social media and instead just spend all day farming on them. It would also probably make way more sense to do weekly updates instead of just whenever I have something major. That has to be way better for organic growth.
That moment when you realize your game size without the sound is 51.1 MB.... But with it (unoptimized as it is) it's 156 MB.... I guess it's time to do a bit of sound optimizing. Also I learned that deployed for Windows it's 308MB... Apparently MV adds a pretty hefty helping of stuff on deployment.
Well... My game plays better at 1920x1080, so I guess that's the new resolution. Still runs at 60FPS. Also... I really want a boss to be able to build new maps around the player... Mostly because it's visually spectacular! I'm er... not quite sure yet how I can do that without making MV explode.... But I'll find a way, anything in service to the "sparkles"!
ESAMarathon on Twitch, now streaming "Eat Girl". Yep, that's the title of a game... Apparently it's a Pacman knockoff.... Which is of course the only logical conclusion one would get from a name like "Eat Girl". I can't believe anybody would think anything else!
So I've taken to doing a test of the game, and making a list of everything I think of during the test to add/fix. Over the course of the night I check them off as I do them, and by the end of the night I always feel like I've accomplished something.
3 hours of trying to figure out why my world creator was respawning stuff I wanted spliced out... Only to discover I foolishly trying to splice an object and not it's array position. *facepalms * Oh well at least some good came out of it, I remembered how much fun it is to squish Yanpi.
Survivalist: Now,I going to Test you: Fishing with Spear M.Spear Knight: Leave it to me.
(M.Spear Knight Spearing the Fish with His Battle Spear) M.Spear Knight: How it is? Survivalist: I know you did it,but...Is that the Spear for Battle,not for Fishing? M.Spear Knight: But,is that same? Survivalist: (Sigh)...Whatever
