  • Welp, sound's borked on the PC release of Chrono Trigger. Guess I'm refunding it and booting up Snes9x on my PSP.

    Yeah, I have the DS version on my radar but I tend to bring my PSP around with me more often than I do my 3DS since my PSP is basically a small sized arcade machine and emulation on the 3DS just isn't as good yet.

    Its funny to think that they've had to do all this work and fixes to make the game almost as good as something they already made. I don't think the game even has the additional stuff in the ds version either. Idk, either way I don't see myself getting chrono trigger on steam at this point despite all these patches.

    I did buy it, tried to boot it up and the sound was completely distorted. I looked into it and found out that the driver I needed to install to fix it wasn't compatible with my hardware, so I refunded the game. Definitely not worth purchasing imo.
    Why is it that so many script requests are for simple things that can be done easily with events?

    Yeah, for sure. I remember years ago I managed to build an entirely event-driven stealth system in RM2k3. I ended up scrapping it since it required so many parallel processes and on screen events to run properly that the engine performed noticeably slower.

    I'm more irked when someone asked a thing then at the bottom of the line, they said "can u do it without script?". If either script or eventing can solve your problem, why against of using script if it means more "simpler" and neat solution.

    It's worse when they say "this should be an easy script to make" when they're asking for a whole custom battle system or whatever.
    Today I looked at an old version of my game's outline, only to find that it was way better than what it morphed into. Time to revert! :D
    I'm at the point now that I've got a text file full of humorous banter to use in my project, but no actual progress in said project. o_O

    at least you had fun writing it (I hope lol) so now time to get to work! lol :D

    Oh I'm having a blast writing them. I've even managed to fit them all into my outline, its just a matter of getting to those points now :p
    It's dawned on me that my opening is very close to that of Final Fantasy VI. Guess I have the chance to make jokes about that game now :p.
    Surprisingly, the hardest part of the one map challenge isn't the restrictions. It's remembering where you put your event hadlers! o_O

    We can't use two maps that one is playable and one for dumping event for event cloning?

    I don't think so, no. I've got one singular map with a processor, a few npcs and a few events that act as touch events, bosses, etc. It's surprisingly how much you can do with so little tbh.
    6 hours on a train to Toronto with nothing to do but work on my game... Time to procrastinate!
    Sorry I've not been around over much guys, I'm out of town and the WiFi at the place I'm staying at is worse than dial up. 200b/s o_O
    That moment when you're playing final fantasy and an enemy sprite has so much wrong with it that you could do better yourself o_O
    Everyone's playing Octopath Traveller, and here I am with a copy of the game and no Switch to play it on.

    I just had to explain to our in-house android developer why we should be using material design. Oh boy.

    I dunno, man. Some people are tired of the paper-flat design. The motion graphic part of it, though, that I can get behind. I <3 smooth animations.
    I will never understand why people answer Amazon's frequently asked questions with "I don't know". If you don't know, don't answer.
    You know there's a problem when the Aquaman trailer looks better than the Titans trailer. Seriously how did they mess up Titans this bad?

    I've never understood why they're so worried about making Robin look dorky. He's a perfectly good looking character (and I will give you that his costume looked the part, if a bit too dark). Raven and Robin definitely got the worst of it in regards to inconsistent characterization. Something worth noting is that Dove is known for being a pacifist, so seeing her mutilating people was a pretty gross departure.

    Yeah, I think they maybe went to in on Edgy Robin or at least emphasized too much of it (maybe that's just how he is in beginning before the titans). Robin's few live action appearances have generally portrayed a dorky side to his character and I think its given him a certain perception or fear of making him too much like that. Don't know much about Dove myself, that seems poor though.

    There's certainly a bit of a concern about making Robin dorky on DC's end. Even then I think it's entirely possible to do Robin well in live action without making him dorky. It's just a matter of letting all of the stuff that makes him a compelling character shine through. I do hope that the whole edgy Robin concept gets done away with pretty quickly, since it's just not what the character is about.

New PC is built. Now I walk that fine line between wanting it NOW, and being responsible and waiting for the stress test to be finished. By this time tomorrow it'll be up and running. And my desk will have had a much-needed clean.
