Forum tip: It's really not a good idea to tell someone how to hack MV to circumvent the trial period. Especially when the last post prior to yours is a staff member saying you're not allowed to circumvent the trial period.
#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
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.
Now that I am no longer a mod, I can happily refuse to even look at topics that are titled HELP ME or other similar rubbish, and not feel even the slightest bit guilty about it. There is a definite sense of freedom and relief
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
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.
Please do not PM me for game or forum help. I will be away for a few days and unable to see or reply to your message. If you need moderator assistance, please use the Report facility. If you need general help, post in the forum.
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.
Me, designing it a long time ago: Having an optional boss fight as a random chance to trigger when you fish in a certain spot with a certain type of bait is fun! Cool idea!
Me, trying to playtest everything again: oh god just let me see the boss, my bag is so full of fish!
