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.
Not going to lie, now that business is picking up again after the whole pandemic lockdown.... these 50+ hour work weeks are really slowing down game dev work. It's a good thing I have basically no life, else I'd never have time to do this.
Watching Arcadum do VR Chat/RP on my second monitor... I admit, the graphics are cool, but wow.... The level of RP here is impressive, and it's not even dirty RP (stupid VTubers). It's like a real legitimate story. I kind of wish all of his D&D stuff was done this way.
So today I got my first introduction to "VTubers". Six of them are playing D&D with Arcadum. I don't know if even a DM as fantastic as Arcadum can make six VTubers tolerable. I've had it on my second monitor for over a hour.. they're still meeting in the first room doing perception and stealth checks to look at each other's chests. No story has happened yet.
F.Knight: We runs out the food! Hero: Anything could eat in this place? F.Archer: It's a bunch of Mushroom over there. I wonder it's safe to eat. F.Knight: No worries,we have to fill our inside no matter what it is.
