  • #1 bonus to having to reinstall Windows & upgrade to Win 10: I can now get the developer console via test play in MV, and don't need to create all my projects in the inetpub folder and test them in a browser anymore.  Yay to being able to put my projects where I want them to go!  I was really hoping this reinstall would fix that issue - it stumped a number of people who are far more clever than I.  I'd say it's worth it just to get that working :)

    Yeah, it did, on so many levels.  I could get the dev console up, but it wouldn't actually do anything - couldn't see the scripts, couldn't walk through line by line.  Some "can't connect to socket error" thing.  I had a few people look at it and they couldn't figure it out either.  Ended up having to keep all my MV projects in a completely different place to the others, just to get that working, and when I wanted to test I had to do it in the browser.  A very annoying inconvenience.


    The other bonus is going to be having multiple workspaces on my desktop (the only thing I ever found appealing about Win 10), but I haven't set that up yet, so will have to wait a bit to enjoy the benefits.

    lol - I could have used that information back in November!  Unfortunately, I couldn't ask anybody who didn't have MV pre-release, and I didn't know who had it and who didn't.  Ah well, all is good with the world now :)
    I broke my computer.  Deleting a program manually 'cause uninstall failed, and removing stuff from the registry (done this successfully with this program before).  Apparently I removed a bit too much, and said program wouldn't work after reinstalling, Chrome wouldn't work, email program wouldn't work, numerous games wouldn't run.  So my week has been filled with backing up all my files (1 day), downloading & installing Windows 10 (1 day), reformatting, resetting, installing Windows 8.1 followed by Windows 10 (1 day - cause first Win 10 only did an upgrade and not a complete reinstall & format, leaving registry still corrupted).  That's where I'm at now.  Got to go away today, and when I get back home tomorrow I can begin to reinstall all my programs and put my data back where it belongs.  At least there isn't much crud that came with the reinstall or upgrade I need to get rid of.


    So how's YOUR week been?

    Yeah, it's pretty horrible.  Though winter would have been equally as terrible in that area.
    My whole family is crazy.  Caring for each other and feeling gratitude clearly does not run in our blood.  Sometimes I wish I could move far, far away and just disown them all.

    We had made a decision, a month or so ago, that is going to be life-changing for us.  We have turned our lives upside down to cope with a family situation until that decision can be implemented.  While things are very difficult, they have been going according to plan, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel - though it's always going to be difficult, just in a different way.  One phonecall today has made me question whether we really know or are prepared for what we're getting ourselves into.  But there is no going back.


    It's going to be tough.  It will very likely be stressful and cause much conflict and heartache, potentially for quite a few years to come.  I'm not sure how I'm going to cope with it.  But I have to do it, because SOMEONE in my family has to do it, and I am the only one in a position to do it, and the only one who is willing to do it.


    I know I will not get any support from my (blood) family, even though it means they are all off the hook and can shirk their responsibilities.  I only hope it does not affect MY family (husband and son), and that we come out of it sane and close at the other end, whenever that might be.


    I am honestly scared right now of what the future holds.  I am afraid that this could be the worst decision I have ever made.  But it is the only logical/reasonable decision that can be made under the circumstances, and I cannot change my mind.

    aaargh!


    Person A calls person B, who then calls person C with a completely different story, causing immense confusion and anxiety.  Person C then calls person A to see if that's really how their conversation went, dreading the response, and discovers that person B got the story totally messed up.  All is calm again, for a while.


    Sometimes people just need to mind their own business and stop interfering.


    Now, I am Zen :)   


    But there is always tomorrow looming on the horizon.


    I don't think I will come out of this with any shred of sanity left!
    Been looking for houses for a month or so.  Not very many coming up where we want to go.  The only one on the short list, which we hope to see next week or early the week after, looks quite nice - house a bit small, yard nice and big, and vegie gardens and fruit trees already established.  But it has the main highway going past the front gate, and a train track right at the back of the block (trains only pass a couple of times a week), plus a school right over the road (homeschooling son hates schools and other kids).  Still, it's worth looking at, only 15 minutes from dad.  If we decide to apply and are accepted, the move will be in 2-4 weeks.  Nothing like rushing things :)

    Gotcha. I'm considering the move from Iowa to PA. So many different things come into play...
    Different state taxes on payroll, different cost of living (from county to county within the state) and a number of other things...
    Like, as an example, a $130,000 house where I live now, in Iowa, would be going for about $300,000 near the city in PA. 

    Outside of obvious bumps based on location do you have these sort of drastic changes in prices?
    Shaz
    Shaz
    The place I live now is the second largest inland city in our country.  The place I am moving to is a little country town.  But the rent there, for some insane reason, rivals the rent here.  We live in a brand new house, on a half acre, on the outskirts of town.  Down there, older houses on blocks less than half the size are asking the same price, or more, than what we're paying here.


    Australia is currently right at the peak of a housing bubble.  Most houses advertised around here are asking $400,000 - $500,000.  They appear to be about $100,000 lower where we're going, but as we can't afford to buy (and don't want to buy there) we're not paying too much attention to them.  In the big cities, especially Sydney, a very small house on a very narrow block would cost over a million.  It's insane, to me, that people would even consider paying that kind of money for a house, when they are so much cheaper in other places.  But then I also consider it insane that people would want to live & work in the capital cities ;)


    A house for $130,000 would be incredibly cheap here, and if you bought one for that price, you'd expect it to either be WAY out in the middle of nowhere, or to be very run-down and greatly in need of maintenance.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    Cost of living obviously changes here based on location, but we don't have all the payroll/taxation issues that you guys have.  The rules are the same across the country, no matter what state you live in.
    thanks guys - spammer is banned.  Not sure how they managed to get some of those posts through.

    That was... interesting.
    If you have sent me a PM for something that doesn't specifically need my attention, please either post your question on the forum, or use the Report facility to bring it to the attention of the moderators.  I am going to be away from the forum on and off on a frequent basis over the next few months at least, and I don't want people waiting for replies from me to questions that any other person on the forum can answer.  If I have not responded to your PM, it's because I know it doesn't need MY attention and my time is committed to other more important things right now.

    What's really funny is that even for those exceptions, we've got existing threads for most of those too. :)   Shaz and I are on the same page, I happen to think that Personal Messages should be for personal messages.  When they are I don't mind them at all, they aren't a bother, but that isn't what's in most of my inbox, sadly. :(

    Yep, I can understand Shaz :) And you're right Sharm; I don't tend to use PM's too much anyway, but for sure they should be used for personal messages instead, with some exceptions I guess xD


    Anyway Shaz, I hope everything goes well and that you can finish all your pending work. I have passed by that work overload many times in the past, and I can understand how it feels >.<

    Status Feed Rules:


    1) Do not discuss or link to any illegal materials/activities.


    2) Do not ask people to join your forum, team or project. Also, please avoid asking people to comment on or view your thread.


    3) Do not make feeds that are passive aggressive or otherwise offensive, especially against staff members.


    4) Do not make feeds for support questions or lengthy discussions, including asking why your thread hasn't been approved yet.


    5) Do not make feeds asking for donations, votes, signatures or registrations.


    6) Do not use the status update excessively each day. Try to keep it a 2 a day maximum.


    Since so many people seem to be forgetting them.
    Remember - messages you post on someone else's status feed are immediately visible to the entire forum.  Consider using PM instead ;)
    The rules for posting in Classifieds - Offers have been altered slightly, due to the newest 10 meaningful posts being completely misunderstood by most people.  After discussion with mods and admins, that rule has been removed, and replaced.  The bottom line is, we don't want people coming here purely for the purpose of making money from our members, especially when they have no idea what RPG Maker is all about.


    These new rules will apply for all posts going forward.  I am not going to go back through existing posts and filter them on the new rules (though at some stage I may just close the inactive threads).








    REQUIREMENTS FOR POSTING HERE - READ THIS SECTION!  IF YOU DO NOT MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS, YOUR THREAD WILL NOT BE APPROVED!

    • This part of the forum is for people who own RPG Maker / IG Maker to make resources, for payment, for other people who own RPG Maker / IG Maker.
    • You must have been a forum member for at least 1 month before posting a thread in this section.
    • You must be taking part in meaningful discussions in this forum.  I will look at how many posts you have, where you have been posting, what you have been saying, and when you posted, to determine whether you appear to be here to be a part of the community or just for the purpose of advertising.  If, in my opinion, you are only here to advertise and you haven't yet contributed to game making discussions in a meaningful way, your thread will not be approved.
    • You MUST own a legal version of the engine for which you are providing resources.  If your resources could be used in any engine, you must own at least one of them.  I may, at my discretion, request proof of purchase.
    • You must be familiar with the resource requirements for the engine you are creating resources for (size, format, naming conventions), and you must know how to use the resources in the engine.
    • Where possible, you must SHOW your resource being used IN the engine.  For any kind of artwork or mapping, this means screenshots of a game using your resources.  For writing, it means a working demo containing a scene using dialogue you have written.  For audio, this could be a demo featuring your tracks, or ... if it is difficult to feature your resource in a screenshot or a demo, be prepared to show proof of purchase if requested.
    • If you provide a demo, make sure to keep the file size to a minimum.  Do not include the RTP.  For MV, provide a zip file containing only the non-default things - remove all default images, audio, scripts, etc.

It seems that my favorite anime page finally kicked the bucket... :,c

Every RPG and MMO should let you transmog\glamour your gear so you can look the way you want.
So, to clear up things, this section is to speak about personal life stuff and such? or maybe upload game content?
