  • Thinking of expanding A Royal Pain. Just have to figure out how. And I will be using sample maps. It's easier for me.

    It'd be new to me; never even played with the sample maps before.

    I just really suck at mapping. I've never truly been artistically inclined. I can change some things, but that's it.
    I don't want to waste a thread to ask this question. Are there rat people sprites in VX Ace? I'm going to do a game at some point based on a world I've created and it has rat people.
    So today is my birthday and I'm in DC. Did the National Zoo yesterday and about to do the Baltimore Aquarium today.

    Not to be greedy, but if anyone happens to have VX Ace or MV Resource steam keys that I don't have, lying around, I'd be happy to take them off your hands.

    @Shaz It's bannable?! I've been here for years and didn't know that! I'm sorry.

    2.2 Piracy of our own products here is not tolerated, and falls under our instant ban rules.
    However, asking for "spare" Steam keys implies products that haven't been activated yet, and is not piracy. This is exactly what people do when they have spares - they give them away.

    Good thing I mentioned Steam. I would've been real depressed if this joke got me banned.

    Anyone want to talk about anything? Currently kind of bored.

    My new starting town. How's it coming? And how could I make it better?

    Looks fine so far, though we have a Game and Map Screenshots thread for it. Also note we do ask for 2 status updates in 24 hours and this is the 3rd I see. I know you've been away for a while so might have forgotten about that one.

    I actually didn't remember that. Sorry. I won't do anymore today.

    Not a problem. Its just to give all posts a fair chance on the feed, that's all.
    Aaaaggghhhh!!!! None of my exterior tiles from the Modern and Futuristic Tilesets transferred into my game. So I can't even make futuristic towns. Guess I'll have to try MV next for sure as I can't get it to work in VXA!

    @bgillisp To be fair, they were venting, not asking. I asked. :p

    @magnaangemon01 I'm sure it's something that can be fixed. And if it's the Modern and Futuristic Tiles I'm thinking of, they won't work in MV without a bit of work. If bgillisp's suggestion doesn't fix it, post a thread asking for help.

    True, it did kinda turn into support after you asked. Still just wanted to suggest a thread in case this didn't fix it.

    I went ahead and moved to MV. It has more of what I need. Except for a spaceship
    For those of you who like anime, the Right Stuf is doing a birthday sale until this Friday. Between to 75-80% off of a lot of anime. Now's the time to work on your collection. There was some that were normally $80, I got for $5. Act now. (not an ad or paid to advertise, just helping people out)

    Hope this works. This is the school map I made for Celestial Frame but something didn't seem right with it.
    The reason why I was asking about the difference between MV and VXA was because I was thinking of moving my project to MV to receive more offers of help. I posted a Recruitment thread but the only reply I got was asking why I wasn't doing it in MV. I don't know how to do everything I want to do.

    Parallax? What exactly is that?

    It's where you create maps using tools such as GIMP or Photoshop. It basically allows you to create super detailed maps. it's also extremely time consuming, and requires scripts to implement (parallaxes and pictures don't stay still by default). It's not very beginner friendly.

    You can also use those programs to edit tilesets, recolour things, clump objects together, etc; which I'd highly recommend doing if you're feeling up to it. You can make pretty maps without a lot of this stuff, though. Just requires patience and practice. :)
    Been looking at a few tutorials, and other than a character generator and plugins, how is MV different than VXA?

    I meant as in database and eventing.

    And from what I can understand, plugins are like scripts, but with less work?

    Plugins are like scripts, but easier to add, and easier to configure (if you read the instructions). Database and eventing are fairly similar. Ace had a character generator too. MV has more flexibility in window size, and because ALL scripts are visible, you can make more extensive changes than you could with Ace.

    The main difference is MV has a higher tilesize (48x48 instead of 32 x 32), and can use resolutions over 640 x480. However MV games also run slower (at least on my PC, and I've heard of others with the same issue), which you'll really notice if you go to a really high resolution.
    I've decided to put my game into Open Recruitment. I know I'm gonna need help with scripts and mapping. I know how to swallow my pride and ask for help when I need it.
    Ugggghh....I am so ready to recruit a team for this game. It's going to take forever. Three days and all I have is the first map, the party members, and the starting position. Not whining, just me needing to blow some steam.

    @magnaangemon01 There's a game and map screenshot thread. You can post screenshots there so that a lot of people can give you feedback.
    Mapping is so hard.......My biggest weakness. :(

I've decided to try and be more social and less nervous about engaging. I'm always over thinking things - from now on when I'm worried or don't get something I'll just ask.
Sometimes a mechanic that is meant to add challenge is just annoying. Even the Final Fantasy games did not completely escape this pitfall of design. (FF8 draw system I'm looking at you - grrrr)
starting working on the sprites for one of my games major antagonists finally. here's the first frame of his chanting motion in battle.
Have spent too much time hammering out with a friend just how to make a reoccurring enemy that permanently learns skills you use against her.
I know what I want in a loose sense. Maybe I should just make a post asking for opinions and suggestions.
