When did you last do a backup? More than a week ago? Time for another one - don't lose your progress, you know you will cry if you do. Jun 12, 2019 at 2:59 PM

        At one point he asked for pens, went to a bit of blank wall & in 5 minutes drew a self-portrait.
        Why the guitar? Because he plays it, and quite well, he gave us a mini-concert.

        My friend has a history of running into famous people. There was the one time we were at Magfest and he spotted Keiji Inafune (the creator of Mega Man) in the dealers room. Of course, he got his picture. And then one time, he was sitting in a quiet restaurant at some horror convention and Robert Eungland walked in.

      Sorry for the intrusion, I'm looking for a VX script called "Save File Doctor" https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/save-file-doctor.40497/

      Sadly, the website is gone and the script sadly lost to the world. I saw that you used it a bunch and was wondering if you still had it! It sounds like a marvel script and desperately need something like it for one of my projects.

        fallenlorelei... that is okay to do but remember, if the harddrive fails your backups are worthless. Its best to have backups on a different drive or source. I usually back up my projects to google drive <_<

        You should backup, the backup of your backup. I remember the horror story of about a month ago where the dude lost 3 years worth of game, because he did not back up the project.

        Yeah, ideally you'd backup in several places. On external hard drive (this is quicker if your project is big and internet connection isn't as fast), and also on the net somewhere in case you lose the external HD, but it can take a while to upload a ~500 MB project. I backup once every handful of days on external HD, and about once a month on the internet somewhere.

        I love using these sorts of things in games, though. Regional dialects and what not can really help breathe life into your characters. While playing Ni No Kuni 2, I was introduced to a whole town of people who used a Midlands dialect. It put a bloody huge grin on my face, what with being from that neck of the woods an' all. Man, I do love me some regional dialects in games\stories. xD

        Each thread has their own videos, that's what that forum is for. You don't see the contest, you see people playing a game. Have a look at a couple of them. Some IGMC reviews will have videos e.g. Indrah, others will be written.

        To start a private message go to your inbox (or you can float your cursor over it on computer) and choose Start a new conversation. Then you can add a subject title and choose participants by typing in user names (you can do multiple participants by separating names with a comma). There are also settings you can adjust for the conversation as well. Its sort of like sending an email to someone.

        Bumping - which comes from Bring Up My Post - is posting something which causes the thread to become active again and moves it up the list of topics. You can do this if there have been no posts by anyone for 72 hours.

        The best way to get a thread closed is to use the Report button on your opening post and ask for it to be closed. That way you won't have to wait until I come back on site to see this, as Mods might not see a post or an Update, but will see a Report.
