This game is over 20 years old but is still my go-to reference point for dark fantasy atmosphere ydrQRKbZA2M Sep 20, 2019

        Also interesting to think about: the graphics and general gameplay are well within what can be done with something like RM, and weren't particularly impressive even then.

        But the incredible writing and voice acting (and the sound effects & music, to a lesser extent) have a way of drawing you in in ways very few games can, especially from that era.

        It's amazing how much having the right "atmosphere" changes how you experience a game.

        Blood Omen. <3 I love this game so much. I also love the second one, even if it is more linear than the first.

      Some early WIP footage of the game I've been working on:

        Looks like a really lovingly crafted game and I love what you did for the menu and skills at the bottom.

        But how? What plugins have you used?.. How did you change your battle to main screen instead of different one? How did you change UI? Inventory?.. Just.. How? Not a clue. I simply do not understand how you did this with PRGMaker.

      The following script is a work of fiction. Vars are used in a purely fictitious manner. Any resemblance to real code is purely coincidental.

      Don't forget to proofread your game! English is a complicated language. It can be understood through tough thorough thought though.

        And that is why many games fall to obscurity. The developer will leave so many grammar and spelling mistakes that people will think that It's poorly designed. Take up the spellchecker folks!

      Working on using CastleDB with MV instead of the editor's normal database. Really liking it so far, it's going to save me a lot of time.

      Ended up just implementing MV plugin loading from arbitrary file paths myself. Was actually less work than expected.

        NI!! It's starting to look really good. The names are extremely hard to read against the border of the message box; everything else looks great!!

        I think it would look better if the portraits can take up more vertical space of the message box, and of course you want to color the box background for higher contrast. But as far as implementing your system in general - that looks great, and congrats on pulling it off!

        Looks great, really unique. It's getting hard to read with compression, so this game might not be a good fit for let's players etc, especially such that are starting out and have no idea on how to proper setup stuff ;) Wavelength might be right about getting more contrast between font and textbox.

        You're both right on that. I hadn't really spent any time looking into font settings, just wanted to make the animations work.

        I worked on it a bit more and also decided to do message bubbles instead of the normal RM way of doing dialogue.

        I've been writing all the code for it over the last several weeks, yes. I'm using a few plugins to save myself time, but most of it is from scratch

      Hmm, kind of bothers me that all the default code is packed in so few files. I wonder if there's an easy way to reorganize things a bit? Searching through a 7000 .js file is bleh

        I hated that at first, but now I'm used to it. I'd rather have everything in a few files separated by type. It does take a day or two to get used to where everything is and understanding how it works. I'm glad they kept the naming conventions from RGSS to make it easier to adapt.

        Yeah, it's pretty huge to go through. You could break them up yourself - it'd be a bit of a job, and repeated whenever there were updates, but it'd make it easier to check just a single class.

      Thinking about writing a Tatical RPG engine for MV. Is this something people would be interested in using?

        @Neo Yeah, ideally it would support any kind of turn-based strategy RPG game. So you could make Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics or D&D style games with it.

        No no, you're perfectly on track. As a wise man once said:


        "The first 90 percent of the code accounts for the first 90 percent of the development time. The remaining 10 percent of the code accounts for the other 90 percent of the development time."
