  • Setup a system to cull enemies that are too far from the player to matter, and to spawn new ones just outside of view. Take that lag! :LZSexcite:

    Sure it's almost instant, but there is about 3 seconds where the player stutters once they can move. Probably just looking into a preloading plugin for the graphics. Those 3 seconds are kind of annoying, and it doesn't do it on any other map generation, just the first one.

    well the scrolled x and y are useful because if you know the size of the view area, (default 17X13), then you can say anything less than 0 for scrolled x or y is off screen, and anything greater than or equal to 17x , or greater than or equal to 13y is off screen. It's actually probably super useful in your situation

    It's definitely interesting. I'd need to set it a lot further out than the edge of the screen though. Otherwise a smart player would just walk a step to the side then walk the other way to defeat any mob. Nothing like building in my very own "speed running strats". :LZSlol:
    I never realized how much fun destroying scenery by ramming it would be, or how much I keep think "I'm the Juggernaut!" when I do. :LZSexcite:

    This game mechanic is sooooo making it to the final build. Oh yes!
    It turns out that if I set the collider to 0,0,0,0 before despawning an event.... QMovement will actually play nice with Galv Event Spawner! :LZSexcite:

    Now QSprite will actually display my diagonal character sprites for idle/running/walking/jumping... Oh the things I do just so I can use the pretty graphics. :kaoswt:
    Every once in awhile, somebody reminds me events don't normally pass through each other. What's next? Maps with borders? Weirdos. :LZSwink:

    Actors and Events really need a RPG Maker Tinder to help them hook up. Nothing worse than a lonely event or actor. And for 50 gold you can send a direct message to the event of your choice! :LZSexcite: As for the Pacific, just be careful you don't find Cthulhu on the way. :kaoswt:

    One day, someone who is just learning to use RPG Maker is going to come to this forum for eventing help. And they are going to find this status post.

    I weep for them.

    If there is such a thing as a perfect future, you've just described it for me. My only regret is I won't be able to physically see the tears, maybe they'll read this message and be kind enough to provide a picture. :LZSexcite:

    Every time I discover a way to save even more resources, I immediately try and stuff Ultra Mode 7 back in... Then I find a way to use more and take it back out. :LZSskeptic:

    Just setup a system where the paths my player spawns are destroyed after an upgradable number of them are in play. Defaults to 10, but it used to be they could get up to around 160 before the map was swept clean. Nothing like saving 150 potential inactive events. Even had enough extra resources to blow them up in 60 frames of glorious animation. :LZSexcite:

    Depends on how big of a hurry I'm in, I already run a business so it's not like income's a priority from this. :LZSwink: That being said it would be cool to have something to show people. :LZSexcite:

    What type of business do you run? Game making is more or less a hobby I thoroughly enjoy.

    Oh I'm part of the super secret dark underworld of Magic the Gathering card trading. Or as the Magic community calls it, "A scumbag investor/flipper". :LZSexcite: But to the normies, I'm a "Day trader", long explanations confuse them. :LZSskeptic:

    I'm super excited that the "Newest Members" box looks like a game of "Guess Who?" For my turn, "Does your avatar have anime hair?" :LZSexcite:
    Started the year out right by fleshing out the first hour of my game's dialogue. Now I just need to be good and not make any 11th hour gameplay changes. :LZSblush:
    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?
    ImaginaryVillain

    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:

Super stoked i just finished my first town in my project, by finished i mean i can always add more decorative aesthetics and the NPCs don't talk yet but the mapping is complete and all the important chess pieces are present!
My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
Me: Good!
My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
Me: Crap.
Should be able to release Haxe MV/MZ next weekend.
It look that somehow MZ tracks are messed up (for example battle4 is obviously a theme, castle2 is a ship, ship1 is a scene and so on..). Maybe they just named them after with some ambiguity.
is there a script call that return how much turn has passed in battle?
