  • In my list of games to play (only counting the ones I intend to play, not random steam purchases): 17 visual novels, 8 jrpgs, 6 western/action rpgs and 15 other type of games. Also, Legend of Heroes: Trails into Azure, Boundless Trails and Trails into Reverie are all releasing this year. This is hard work guys!
    Doing random and absolutely useless things in RPG Maker is really good for your creativity! I came up with plot for my ABS game, an idea for a jousting minigame + another minigame where you have to juggle a bouncing turd with a flying head whilst dodging bullets.

    Sounds useful to me :p If you can make a minigame like that, any other should be a breeze now :p
    Wholesome content recommendation: A Sky Full of Stars (Visual Novel). This has saved my evenings, after work has drained me.
    It's crazy how effective a lot of indie devs are. My work flow is like: pace around the room restlessly, start rpg maker mz, turn my character speed to to max and start running around an empty map / sky parallax in playtest mode, maybe look at some plugin videos in youtube, spend 2 hours, manage to make one database item: iron sword, +2 attack.

    To get on my level you need to do that for *twenty-two years*.

    A lot of people often advocate "making progress every day", even if it's just adding a tree to a map. But my experience was like:

    Day 1: *add a tree*
    Day 2: "This tree sucks, why I added it here yesterday?" *erase the tree*

    So, without a solid plan, I often just backtrack.

    Well, I haven't worked on any of my projects for 2 or 3 weeks (beyond some brainstorming at work) because I've been distracted with playing computer games. HELP!
    After 7 months of really hard work and then 6 months of lazing around and procrastinating with adding the final touches my game is finally complete! Not bad considering that a year ago I didn't really even know about variables. Thanks to everyone who helped with questions and assets! Feels good to have a game under my belt! Ep2 (also self contained) may possibly come in the future!
    Finally began ordering sprites edits to complete Forest of Lesbians. Doing real work full time again has drained all my energy, none left for game dev :( Some ideas in my head though for ep2: “The Nutcracker of Riepass”. Feat. Sam from ep1, a mischievous lunarwolf cub and a tsundere loli ice fey who hits guys balls with a club if they annoy her. Picking wrong convo choices causes persistent neg. states/debuffs.

    @Alador Have you not seen the game topic? :p
    Guess I'll try to do a little bit of marketing...at least spam some tweets. Let's see if there's any benefit.
    I'm only missing 2 more bgms for my game but maaaaan, searching for these tracks is killing me. Can't find anything good to replace MZ's Theme 2 and Scene 5 I have as placeholders. Everything is too epic or too evil or too alarming. That 'scene 5' track in particular would fit nicely with my scene. Well, at least I finally figured what my last click-fest of a gameplay element will be like, so something positive :D

    And when you consider that about 75% of RPG Maker users aren't even using MZ, and that there haven't been that many MZ games released yet, I think it's unlikely that people have actually had all that much exposure to MZ RTP music.

    Good points, I'll think about it. Guess I'll see if I can get something I like for cheap and see if that works out.

    Idk man if it's not the default title theme from MV then I think you'll be good lol
    Took a six week summer break from making my game, hoping some inspiration would magically strike me and I'd easily finish the last minigame and find the remaining music, but no such luck :D Guess I'll soon have to just sit down again and grind the project to the finish line. Well, at least I played a couple of good games. The Messenger was fun (when it didn't cause you rage) and currently playing World End Syndrome.

    Inspiration is a fickle thing, you never know WHEN it will strike or desert you, even after a while it can sometimes still be missing. May it come back to you soon

    I once took a break long enough to play ffx start to finish. Seemed to work. Sometimes we just need small breaks. And sometimes we need to just do something in the editor to get us started too.

    Trying to set bgm loop points in audacity, changing the 1/10th and 1/100th of second integers, not being able to hear which way to go.

    Man, brings back memories from about 5-6 years ago when I went in and created my own looping points... I don't think I used specifically 1/10 or 1/100 sec for it, but I did it by ear and had to listen to some of the loops dozens if not hundreds of times until it felt perfect.

    Yeah, like I said above, I just don't care anymore. I've spent 8 hours today, learning about these music things, looking for some tracks and trying to set a couple of loops :D I'll just have to try and find tracks with premade loops and if I have to use some that don't, then my players will just have to laugh at the less than 100% perfect cuts. I'll try to make them not too jarring.

    As long as its close it will be fine, but some of the music I've listened to had some just terrible loops put in and I had to correct them. Once you learn what you're doing though, it goes so much faster and easier with each new track you find the loop for. :D
    Typical end result of me spending 45 mins trying to make small edits to basic sprite clothing (guess I'll need to spend money on this too):

    We need a meme in the meme thread with a caption "Character concept in my head...What my character looks like"

    I don't wanna sound anyhow entitled, but I'd really love to see how one can spend that time on a TV sprite^^' Maybe there are some tips we could give to help you streamline the process^^

    To be fair, I said TV + TVD lol. And part of it was combing through literally thousands of generator parts I've hoarded over the past 1.5 years. And we all know how lovely RPGM's generator part naming system is.

    I'm slow and nitpicky. And, like many of us, I'm suffering the delayed effects of terribly organizing things when I first got RPGM. But I'm still open to ideas haha
    What the **** is that MZ "Cry 2" sound effect? That just sounds like someone taking a huge s*it.

Autism Acceptance Month 2023!


Did this randomly in my free time, I guess today is a good day to show it.
If I were to not exaggerate, I would say that I have changed my damage formula about a million times by now. Give or take 1 or 2.
