  • I finally updated all of my demo combat encounters to the new on-map battle system. It won't be much longer until I re-upload the demo with all the changes, I promise!
    To get validation for all your hard work feels amazing.

    Studio Blue did a video on Collector and enjoyed it a lot. I expected them to rip it to shreds, but the gameplay went (mostly) well.

    There are things I can improve, but they said my game "oozes Mike Pondsmith" (he's the creator of the Cyberpunk 2020 ttrpg, which precedes Cyberpunk 2077). I was shocked to hear such a compliment! :kaopride:

    Studio Blue is really good at giving feedback without ripping the game to shreds at the same time.

    Yeah, they gave me great advice.
    What are everyone's experiences with porting games to a new engine (let's say VX Ace to MV/MZ)? Is it worth it as long as progress is near the beginning?

    Never "ported" a game. However, I did move my initial project from VX Ace to MV. However, I always have a metric crapload of documentation so what I'd spent about a year creating in VX Ace only took me about 3 days to recreate in MV. Then, I began taking advantage of new features and my game got an overhaul later.

    So are you upgrading engines?

    More like just remaking the game from the ground up. It's not like it had much progress in the first place. This is for a side project, not Collector.

    When you gotta make a new tileset for each building because of a few differences.

    I feel motivated to work on my game today! Hopefully this momentum continues after I get off work...8 hours from now...:|

    It will. Use the thought to get through the day, coming up with new things; hopefully being in the position to write down or type the things you would be afraid to forget.

    In a shocking twist of fate, I now have to work from home. Luckily, that means I can also work on my game in my downtime!
    It's so annoying that before work I'm motivated to work on my projects, but then after work I'm like "Meh, I'm too tired. Let's play games or watch anime instead."

    Go to sleep in the early evening, wake up in the super-early morning, that way it's still night and you have your energy!

    Dude I am the same way, I do software development, and in the morning I am like yea I am going to work on my game. Go to work and 8 hours later I am like whats new on crunchy roll or lets play some marvel avengers lol. I totally agree with ya though
    I finally got new ideas for Collector, after not having any for days on end. This burst of creativity must've been spurned on by the release of MZ.

    Also, I've been rolling some MZ project ideas around in my head...I wonder how a super hero game would work? There's also that black and white samurai one I was thinking about as well. Hmmm, what to start...

    You'd need extra resources for the samurai idea. Most samurai resources are designed for MV and its generator. Using MV tiles in MZ isn't a problem, but the generator uses new battler templates (not all of the poses are the same as in MV), so things won't line up properly. The Trinity pack is the way to go for samurai tiles, though. :)
    I gave in and preordered MZ. Now I can throw even more game ideas into the RPG meat grinder! Muahaha :kaophew: Prepare to (maybe) see them in the future...

    I installed mine. Haven't opened it yet. Are you jumping from VX Ace all the way to MZ? Should be quite a lot of improvements.

    @ADMtn Only for new projects past the two or three I am currently making in VX Ace. I might even move one of them to it...But not Collector, as I am nowhere near finished with it.

    I installed MZ as well, and took a quick peek around. It's going to take days for me to learn it, coming from VX Ace!
    I received my Fifth Angel debut album CD today, and it's so good! I've only heard a crappy MP3 rip until now, and hearing it in lossless is a huge jump in quality! Here's my favorite song from it.

    When you discover great tileset resources that you completely forgot that you had. :kaomad3::kaopride:

    I make original tilesets, massive edits to existing tilesets, and custom pixel art of all kinds to suit your needs. Feel free to contact me if you need anything!

    @Uranium Cool! I may just do that in the future. Do you do it for free or commission?
    Uranium
    Uranium
    Well I am very reasonable. I can do small things for free if I have spare time. Otherwise it would be small commissions!

    I am working on building a portfolio of my previous work! I will do everything through my patreonaccount as explained before. I can send you a PM once I have it set up!
    I have finally completed my first game demo and posted my topic. It still needs mod approval before being able to be played.

Where is the "world-weary sigh" comment response when you need it? I need that one more than anything, but the closest we have is "wow" or "angry".
My apologies if it's out-of-place for my goyim-lookin' ass to be the one to say it, but the mythology of "Golems" is that they were created by Rabbis to protect Jewish villages from Anti-semetic attacks.
I'm moving on from RMXP finally. I've been stuck in a difficult decision between XP and MZ, and I've given up and moved on to MZ. Overall I'm really liking it, I wish tilesets were easier to setup like XP, but it's actually not that bad!
Have you ever gone full 'Ship of Theseus' while frankenspriting? Because I just did.
I saw my new eye doctor today, he reminds me of Satoru Iwata for some reason
