  • Finally finished writing the code to allow state damage and duration to be affected by a battler's Potency (AGI) & Endure (LUK) parameters. Now the player and enemies alike can have weakness or resistance to status effects that feels more natural.

    Barring immunities for specific enemies and special gear anyone can be affected by anything in some way now and their stats will determine the severity!
    For the first real time since my game's inception I found myself actually having fun playing around with my party's skills while testing out some battles! So much so, that I actually forgot what I was doing for a minute and had to force myself to move on to the next thing! :guffaw:

    That's got to be a good sign considering it only has place holder animations, enemy skills, troop comps, etc. right now. Feels good!
    Things learned in my last 3hrs of dev:
    1. If you ask for help, you'll immediately find the mundane detail you missed and look stupid.
    2. Auto Battle makes enemies use Skill 1.
    3. Enemies don't like equipment checks.
    4. Ace's damage formula never returns an error, even if its on fire, you only get 0.
    On the bright side; I fixed the bug and ended up with a better version of my idea. :rock-right:

    i highly resonate with point 1, is also the reason why i don't often ask for help on the forums.

    @TheoAllen I had Auto Battle on a state and tried adding it to an enemy. I start getting 0 damage when it attacks with the state. I thought my code was the problem.

    Turns out enemies ignore any skills you give them when Auto Battle is active. Even if you empty their skill list they still use Skill 1. I use a separate skill for enemy attacks so I was looking in the wrong place the entire time.
    Anyone who understands Ruby got any ideas as to why Ruby thinks these two calculations have different results?

    10 * 20 / 10 = 20 <- Ruby gives me 20. Checks out.
    10 * (20 / 10) = 20 <- Ruby gives me 0. ......what?

    I've done a lot of coding in other languages but Ruby never ceases to surprise me no matter how much I learn about it...

    @ATT_Turan Well, thanks for the help anyway. It helped to at least talk about it LOL. I'll take another look at my code after work and see if I can see the problem.

    Gonna be upset if it really is just me being dumb. :guffaw:

    I've tried that calculation on XP, VX and ACE and always got the same result: 20.

    if it gives you zero, it must be syntax error or some kind of it
    You take the time to write a well thought out counter argument and you get a passive aggressive insult and strutting around like they won.

    An argument and debate are different. A debate is when two individuals share ideas and listen to one another points. An argument is trying to force your idea or thoughts on to the other person without much listening, and there is nothing positive about that. Being open to other ideas is what is needed!

    In my book that's not even arguing, that's just being a d-bag lol

    passive aggressive insults usually mean your argument is stronger and they can't refute it ;)
    Finally getting some free time at work, I can start hangin' out on the Game Design forum again!
    Took so long writing a reply to a forum thread that I ended up just deciding not to post it at all.

I just finally fixed a huge problem that wouldn’t let my game load and would crash it.. I thought that I was gonna have to trash the project and start over lol
The feeling when you finally found and killed that one gamebreaker that you could not really grasp before.:kaojoy:
Precious vet moments. Funny how smart animals are. They can tell what is happening especially a trip to the vet.

Rhythm game Super Hexagon. This looks hard as heck.
