    What exactly is the error? I'm usually decent at getting through them unless it's one of those scripts that don't go with anything.

    Heard of it, but never actually used it. I figured it was one of the RPG Makers.
    Slowly getting more and more used to using Asesprite now! This will change everything in my spriting... stuff. :p

    Don't cha hate making those certain dungeons that you don't like until you realize you reach that point in your game? >_<;;;
    11PM, I has the munchies... time to make a trip to somewhere... but then you ask yourself... where? Such a major puzzler!
    I need a new mouse... bad... XD
    Man... making a game in the style of how Octopath Traveller looks, would be my ideal game. ^_^

    *looks it up* . . . Woah. What a strange combination of 3D and pixel art. I like it.

    Oh wow! It looks so amazing! Does it use any 3D models or anything, or is just styled to look like it?

    I typically try to keep my cutscenes short but I think the longest was around 7 minutes.

    I've spent some months trying create code to get my dungeons to make themselves. It's... getting there, I guess?
    Workin' on a Arachne monster sprite, I gotta seperate the human part and spider part then make em' together on GraphicsGale. XD
    So! How often do you all run away in battles? And if you don't, what is your opinion about getting into battles you can't run away from? Opinions? :3

    This is a question better suited for General Discussion.

    Honestly, this deserves its own topic in Game Mechanics Design; it's something that would be worth being able to fully discuss, reply, and leave a record of for people to find for future advice.


    Succinctly, though, here's how I normally act as a player:

    • If it's very obvious I can't win a battle (e.g. I'm very low on HP and lacking ways to heal), I will run.
    • If the enemy party doesn't present a threat, AND it will either take a long time (>2 turns) to wipe them out or I simply don't find battling/winning to be satisfying, I will run (unless it's harder to escape than to simply kill everything).



    I personally have no problem with having a system where you cannot run from battles - it presents a clear dichotomy of "win or die" (or at least "win or lose" if there is no Game Over), and necessitates proper preparation and management of resources throughout a dungeon/map.


    If there is an option to Run, my favorite way to handle it is to inflict some cost for Running (e.g. the enemies can take one free turn to hit you, or you lose a small amount of items/money) but avoid relying on the RNG to determine success.  Short of that, I would still rather have an RNG-based Escape (preferably with average chances over 50%) than a certain Escape with no cost/penalty.  After all, if you can Escape without penalty whenever you want to, it completely decimates any sense of danger (and thus intensity) that the player can feel.  However, a lot of people apparently do like the certain, no-cost Escape, usually reasoning that if they don't want to do battles right now, they shouldn't have to.

    Either way, doesn't work for a status update.  Locking.

    What are your thoughts of enemy encounters being able to do critical hits with their special attacks that will do harm to your sanity? :D

    "Crit to sanity" sounds a little silly, unless you mean a critical hit will cause mind damage, which I could understand. I'm not sure if it's something I'd tie to a critical hit that any monster could do, but rather an ability or skill the monster uses that has effect by default.

    In the Cthulhu and Arkham Horror games, how much sanity damage a monster deals is fixed to the monster's stats and there is little random to it; either the monster is scary or it isn't. If I recall correctly at least.

    In Mansion of Madness (game), some enemies have attacks that cause sanity damage even if you roll successfully/block the attack, so there's another idea.

    It was mostly a figure a speech. :p  Just what does one thing of about enemies having critical hits with their special attacks?

You have 6 numbers for PIN and 10 numbers of input. This means, for the rest of your life, you will at least never press the other 4 numbers.
:kaoswt: Doing this for 100s of dialogues over 100s of 3DCGs...

No matter how long it takes, the cliches of modern humanization still enrage me. :(

Also...

Random Person: Looks are superficial. It doesn't matter what a hero looks like.

Same Person: EVERY hero NEEDS to look like a human even if they're not supposed to be and it makes no sense for them to look human.
Happy treason day, Colonial friends <3

I am officially amused. One of the NPCs in my project is basically meant as the guy you check in with to point you where you should go next, including if you’ve been away for a bit and have forgotten.

I can conclusively say he does his job nicely. I was out of town over the weekend. I had forgotten what I was working on, so I checked what I had last done with him for a reminder. ^.^
