  • Interesting prospect: I could make Enemy Transform useful for "stance change" enemies that use different moves if you attack them with a move they don't like or something. Especially since HP carries over between "transformations".

    I love it when ideas like these pop into my head, since it feels like I stumbled into a new world of possibilities.
    New laptop. I can finally Make Game without sacrificing my legs to my sardine can of a computer desk. :kaojoy:

    @Philosophus Vagus lol! Oh man, I really do feel bad for you. I remember trying to sit at a desk on a crappy chair that had no backrest - it wasn't fun. Can't imagine how much worse using an exercise ball as a chair would be.

    It is weirdly comfortable while actually sitting on it, but then your back starts to hurt when you sit in regular chairs or lay down and stuff because of however I guess the ball is disfiguring my back. I've talked myself into not being lazy now, I'm going to order a new desk chair this morning.

    I had no idea how much letting the player see the order of who goes first in combat influences things until I tried it out with that one Yami script. I just want to thank @kirbwarrior and that dumb mechanics thread because I can see this being very useful.:kaopride:
    Worked on a cutscene skip domino effect using Maker Systems' script as the basis. Basically if I have a batch of cutscenes in a row on different maps, now when you skip one cutscene it will skip the entire set. No more spamming X to skip a scene every new map.

    Oh and it will work regardless of where you do it from in the set. Convenient!
    Well I am infinitely upset that I finally got a good idea... after the Touch the Stars game jam is pretty much over.

    Gather resources to build a spaceship to escape the apocalypse! It would have been cool....
    The contest ends on the 20th of the month, right? Too bad I don't have a good idea to start with, so I'm out already. :kaophew:

    Oh well, at least I'll have fun playing peoples' games. :LZScheeze:
    Interesting concept for story-driven RPGs: a chapter select function you unlock upon beating the game.

    You get to pick what part of the game you want to replay (the start, mid-game, etc.) with the bare minimum needed to progress for whatever point you choose. :LZScheeze:

    You can do this in mostly puzzle or stage-based games where the grinding required is either minimal or none at all. But for RPG with character progression, I'm not sure how. Because the character progression is part of the fun other than the story itself imo.

    Nier: Automata does something like this and it is great. It is actually with the same save file. It is basically New Game+ but you can select anywhere to start from. And at any time you can open the chapter menu and jump to the start of any other chapter. And you just keep all your progression.

    That's gonna interesting if there's different outcome from that chapter which can also change ending/fate other character, perhaps?

    Oooh, I really like the new Dark theme! The old one wasn't bad but this one is definitely slicker.

    Thank goodness the edit bar came back... and apparently there's a new table function too. That'll be fun to play with.
    Do you ever wonder how you got here? Like the circumstances that got you to where you are?

    I like to ponder stuff like this a lot.

    I sometimes wonder, and then I remember - I had little control over the circumstances that brought me to where I am. The parts that I could control, I can look back and be proud of how far I've come. I am me, and I wouldn't change that for the world.

    the tough part is when you realize "Yes, that's exactly how I got here..... and it wasn't even my fault."

    No but I sometimes wonder why I'm still here (as in lack of purpose).
    This profile banner thing is great! Not sure on the size needed, but it's still a nice feature.

    Made mine nice and edgy because I'm still 15 at heart.

    @TheGentlemanLoser JHTM? I dunno what that is, but I sure can tell you that my banner is from Madoka Magica.

    bears a strong resemblance to some characters from Johnny The Homicidal Maniac.
    Crazy idea: a crossover game made to showcase different RPG Maker games. Dimension crossing is involved and you get to play as different people's characters in some wacky nonsense plot.

    I thought it would be cool to make a game featuring different members of the forum (not without anyone's permission though) but I'm still practicing/learning so it would be a long time before I got to anything like that.

    I really like the idea of mixing games together! I know Nintendo did some of that with theirs (first instance I can think of is Donkey Kong character in Super Mario Bros.).

    I would LOVE to be part of something like this. I love when people things and factions show up in dimensions where they don't belong!

    Already done that. Still doing it. Will do it some time later.
    While we're at it, might as well check Chessmaster's Challenge for the execution of such idea.
    Man I sure would love it if my memory didn't blank out and I completely forget what it was I wanted to look up.

    New Game Plus from an NPC's perspective must be wild, especially if they let you keep end-game weapons and armor.

    * Guild leader: "Alright, send em i--"

    * [Protagonist walks in wielding a world class sword and is in a giant, overdecorated suit of armor that nearly blinds from how shiny it is]

    * Guild leader: ("Who the **** is this new guy?")

    I really like the idea of a NG+ from the perspective of an NPC, or even a party member! That would be pretty damn cool.

    Just like what Snake says in a MGS3 NG+ "Don't get worked up over details." when he got questioned about NG+ gear. :kaopride:

    Especially if NG+ doesn't change the dialogue or quests in any way. Your protag, decked out in all the best gear, and lugging around a sack ooverflowing with gold, asks the local guild for work to earn a bit of cash so he can pay off his debts. lol. The guild master might think the protag is just being a troll.

Went to the doctor because I was actually sick and it was covered over with healthy people from a factory shift who all had to get negative covid tests to go back to work because one of their shift mates got it. Waited for several hours to find out that my low-grade fever, chills, light-headedness and fatigue were in fact covid...
And here I thought I've lost my music sense. Good exercise once in a while
Made Edits to a Character Art from 'Hibiki Katakura MV Monsters' (DLC), to Look More like One of My Own Characters. :LZScheeze:

Decided to retake an old concept I was working on long ago, first change I decided to tackle on right away is the sprites. Never been fan of the default chibis, so I edited it a bit... :kaoswt:

Not sure if this will be the final take, but I like it more than the regular one.
Need a few testers for my new plugin, any takers?
