  • Cutting content ain't easy. But come 2022, I intend to get my rear in gear once more to tell a more concise story. Much as I wanted it to be my magnum opus, I will happily settle for a rough start to a great series if I can.

    Agreed. Very, very agreed. Usually I'm forced to for game jams I've completed, and not being able to cut stuff was the reason why I failed other ones. It's definitely hard to do when you don't have a hard deadline. ;-;

    That's what I'm going to have to do with my game as well. End of 2022 is when my cut off is for actually adding things (not fixing them, want to still have things work). I've been working on it since 2015.
    I have never had a project I wanted to work on for so long so I think it got a little out of control xD

    I sometimes have trouble with this too, my mind wonders why something is the way it is in the game world and I keep mentally answering it. Then next thing I know the game is bigger than I thought.
    So, after refreshing myself on my first ever game, cringe as it is? ...uh, is it bad I wanna incorporate bits and pieces into a modern project?
    Tell it to me straight, doc. If I've been trying to piece together a "shorter" game to learn stuff outside of game jams... am I just running away from my WIP? :v

    Aww, I said that all wrong then! :kaoswt: Basically I tried to say, working on the smaller game is okay and ignoring the WIP is okay... Ahh, dammit, sorry, I knew I shouldn't have opened my mouth. :frown:

    @alice_gristle It's whatever. It's not like I didn't wanna assume the worst anyway. It's also not like I've been trying to retire from this hobby for the past couple months too. You're not doing anything wrong. I'm just too angry at myself to figure it out.

    Well, at least you completed some games.^^
    If you have an idea for a longer game, than "just do it". No fear! xD
    Nothing wrong doing a short game so, but If you are dreaming of doing a big project have the idea and skill to do it, then I wouldnt wait any longer.
    "Yeah. It's been a rough road lately. But that's the thing about the Rangers. It doesn't matter how hard it gets, or how many of them fall. They never stop fighting. The Rangers NEVER stop fighting".

    Angela Deth, you are a hero of mine. Sorry for my first run of Wasteland 3.

    Man did wasteland 3 really botch her character bad in places though, not sure if it was intentional 'you either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain' stuff or maybe she's supposed to be crazy from all the losses in the prior games but a lot of her roll in wasteland 3 made absolutely no sense for her character or even just in general.

    That, sadly, I do agree with. I guess they were aiming for PTSD getting to her after the prior game's events. I couldn't side with her plan as presented. Apparently if you go for the golden ending -- which I am this second time through -- you can course-correct her plans.
    I'm sorry. I have a bad feeling I've been manic the past couple of days. Antidepressants have only been making things worse somehow -- too drowsy to function, followed by insomnia. Why not making me go crazy to boot?

    @Sharm Probably for the best, to be honest. I currently have to take my antidepressants because if I don't I'm subjected to uncomfortable brain shocks and other nasty effects. However, taking them also causes problems. It's just a lose-lose situation. Been thinking about reducing doses until I'm off them completely, because they're not doing a thing for me; the past week is proof of that.

    Antidepressants have helped me a lot, but it's different for everyone and I got lucky that the first type of meds I tried worked for me. If you haven't been on them long, they do mess you up for the first few weeks. If it's been a while, talk to your doctor since they're not working for you. I hope you do find what does work for you.

    Sharing my past was a mistake. Will delete the post when I get access to a working internet connection again.
    The more I read Calvin and Hobbes as an adult, the more I deeply respect Bill Watterson. Plenty of stuff flew over my head, but now that I'm old enough to appreciate the viewpoints he shared with the fun and imagination? I am grateful that C&H was basically my early childhood.
    2021 has been the runner-up for the worst year of my life. 2015 may take that title, but '21 is pushing it. Excuses really don't justify how much of a jerk I've been this year to a lot of people.

    I'm sorry. I don't intend to be a jerk forever, but I'd rather back up my intent with actions, not words.
    I've gotten far enough to show off most of my intro dungeon, barring the opening boss fight. Meet Raziya, heroine of A Lion in Scarlet. See her beat up and incinerate goblins, and explain game mechanics!

    Nice, but I do find your text difficult to read, there is so little contrast with the window skin.
    RachelTheSeeker
    RachelTheSeeker
    @Kes Ah, duly noted. Do you think it was the text itself, the window skin color, or something else?
    Kes
    Kes
    For me this issue was that the font colour was, if not actually identical, almost identical with the window skin colour. That just left the font outline to do all the heavy lifting of separating the letters out from the background.
    So something kinda cool happened in Final Fantasy Tactics today while streaming. Saved for posterity. Not safe anywhere a sudden vulgar shout could get you in trouble.

    EDIT: No idea why the link isn't working?
    RMN 14th birthday game is completed! If interested, check it out at this page under my account AtiyaTheSeeker! Is a scavenger hunt game with some dialogue, took me about 15-20 minutes to play.

    I think I've got the RMN birthday game ~80% finished, at least before playtesting and any victory lap additions. And likely more playtesting after, in case I break something. For now?

    Got almost two hours into a game jam for RPG Maker Network's birthday tonight, not counting an hour of sprite editing! Here is one room so far, in a game about a gnoll celebrating her thirteenth birthday. Yes, this is fantasy Chuck E Cheese's.

    It's been a weird while. I've been so torn down that even playing video games has been something I avoided. But I shouldn't forget two things. One, I love RPG Maker for a reason. Two, only way to eat an elephant is a bite at a time.
    I have no idea why I became a bigger jerk than usual at the start of this year. But I apologize for it. None of my lashing out has been appropriate and even if it would be, I am better than that.
    Would be a joy to be able to delete profile posts, so I don't have to stare at my cringy lie about a hobby I can't ever force myself to try in c:

    If it makes you feel any better, I used to lie about going to work when I was struggling to accept I was too mentally unwell to work. I'd dress up and commute to no where in particular so strangers would think I was heading to work. Don't do it anymore, but I look back at it and laugh. lol.

    oh tell me about it-
    Getting inspiration from, of all places, Digimon World 3. If I'm more worried about practicing game mechanics than story right now, why not a dungeon crawl? Partly inspired by Etrian Odyssey as well. |3

I feel QSprite for MV is underrated. I basically am able to use my chibi sideview battlers I drew on the maps and have all the motions available. this'll help a lot with cutscenes.
I've figured out how to reasonably tall-ify chibi sprites on my editor. I like that making tall sprites gives me control on expressing how tall characters seem on the field relative to each other as well as better differentiate adult sprites from child sprites.
doing some wacky experimental stuff in MV right now :kaoluv: I cannot wait to drop what I've been working on
