  • *Takes a deep breath* I'm attempting to write my first plugin with absolutely no experience in Javascript whatsoever. Here's hoping I get what I want.
    As much as I want a side-view BS... Reality has set in and I need to keep my goals realistic. Much less time-consuming to do a Side-view BS.

    Isn't that in there by default?, i've only messed around with the demo for like 10 minutes.

    By default, you use static enemy Battlers for the side-view.


    If you want to use animated sprites for the enemies (like the actors have), you need a plugin.

    To AwesomeCool's point... It's just the effort put into spriting. If I had a development team to work with, I'd do it. But as a sole developer... Not smart to take on such a daunting task.
    This is by far the furthest I've ever gone with developing a game. And the motivation has changed a bit. Too excited!

    Good job! Not many people finish their projects (myself included sometimes.) So hopefully you'll stick to it.
    This is so odd and amazing. The whole point of stepping away from databasing and eventing was to wait for the plugins I needed to replicate the features of the VXA game I planned to make. Not even a month since launch, and I literally have all the plugins I need. This community is amazing!

    Not just the plug-ins either; lots of content has been pushed out apart from that as well. It's crazy how fast everything happened.

    Absolutely. The development is just shocking. Definitely proved the doubters wrong.

    ...How the hell did Crono learn to be a swordsman anyway? The rest of the party's abilities make sense.

    1. Learn how to use a Katana.


    2. Pick up chicks at a festival.


    3. ???


    4. Profit

    ...Considering the rest of the world is essentially European, relying on the classical straight blades - as does Frog - yeah, his use of a katana-type curved blade makes absolutely zero sense whatsoever.

    I'm really just trying to be pedantic. Haha. It just annoyed me (being one of my favorite games, mind you) that every character has a decent backstory that you could playthrough... Except for Crono.
    When I look at MV Plugins vs. VX/A scripts now, I can't help but think "Quality vs. Quantity". VERY impressed with what people have come up with so far.

    I already have 15 times more plugins for MV than I had made public scripts for Ace.

    @Chaos17


    I'll have to disagree with you there. When I look at what has been "ported" so far... There are more features being offered with the ported plugins. Yanfly's plugins are a clear example of this.

    I think what Chaos17 is really referring to is lack of visual scripts. But I like technical scripts more than that anyway so :D ;
    Anyone else ever feel that they need to do something productive in the day (like cleaning/laundry) in order to justify the inevitable game development binge?

    I do the contrary: I feel I need to do game development to feel productive as real-life stuff is done without much problems xD (but things often happen when you want to do game development -_-)

    is - cleaning/laundry can happen later ;) Or tomorrow.

    I totally wish I could have that outlook. Once I sink into Game Development mode, it's too hard to come out of.
    It's Oct. 23rd. 5:00 am. Payday. And just woke up SPECIFICALLY so I could pre-order MV. Back to sleep I go. Lol
    Saga Frontier 2 music always... ALWAYS gets me in the mood to work on my RPG. I love that OST.

    It's definitely one of my favorite RPGs of all time.
    Hundreds of hours of work... gone. Note self: Do not store your RPG Maker projects on Google Drive.

    I always keep two back-ups; one on dropbox and one on a flash drive.
    Neo Soul Gamer
    Neo Soul Gamer
    Well in my opinion, based on my experiences with both, Dropbox is the better Cloud storage service to use. They each handle syncing a bit differently, according to Google. I'm not blaming Google for anything, it was my stupid mistake. What I do know is that the files could have been recovered if they were backed up on Dropbox. That's all.

    I am so sorry to hear that.
    KuTools: A plugin for Excel that helped me fill 90 script arrays in 4 minutes. Talk about a time saver.

    Not sure what what you mean by making a script to write it. Enlighten me? Sounds easier than what I'm doing. Thumbs up for lazy people. lol.
    Hudell
    Hudell
    well, if you wanted to create 30 arrays in this format:


    [1, 1] => 12,


    [1, 2] => 12, you could just run this:


    for i in 1..30


    print "[1, " + i.to_s + "] => 12\n"


    end


    and you'll have 30 lines written on rpgmaker console window, that you can easily copy and paste somewhere else.

    Well I'll be damned! See I can't script for crap so this is all news to me. Thanks for the tip! Very much appreciated.
    I've discovered that I get the most work done on my game while listening to the Saga Frontier 2 OST. I'd say what my favorite song is but I can't spell the damn name... lol.

    Different music works well for different people... I tend to do the best listening to upbeat trance! :)

    It'll always be some kind of OST from a RPG that I've played. Usually a classic JRPG.

Been slightly struggling with developing the latest chapter, I think I will downscale my ambitions and make it more linear.
No internet for 2 weeks. Thank goodness for phones. :kaoluv:
