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.
If you are posting in Project Recruitment and don't read or follow the instructions in the pinned threads, your post will NOT be approved. There are 6 threads currently waiting for approval - half of them will not be.
Celebrated our 20th anniversary yesterday by doing pretty much nothing, in a pretty nice location Going home tomorrow, and back to work next week.
In other news, we've decided to move house when our lease is up in the middle of the year, to be closer to my dad. I may have said, when I moved away from home, that I'd never go back there again to live (I mean the area - my dad is great, most of the time), so this is kinda ironic. But when family needs you and you're in a position to help, you just do it. We just spent 3 years living with Mark's disabled sister after their mother passed away, and she's doing great now. So now, it's dad's turn. I'm so glad I have the kind of job that requires nothing more than a good computer and good internet connection.
I am on vacation this week and avoiding the internet. If you have messaged me about something that anyone in the forum would be able to answer, please post in the forum. I do not plan to go through my PMs until I return home.
