  • One day I will be comfortable enough with JS and MV to NOT feel l like I'm spending forever on what SHOULD be a simple task. That day is not today.

    It could be worse. If RM relied more on nodeJS, things would get quite ugly around here. Even experienced JS developers don't realize they are doing stuff wrong when they work with node and async.

    A very simple mistake to make in JS is to create a try catch around an addLoadListener and expect it to catch errors on the listener method (it won't).

    Easy does it Shaz. Making mistakes is how we learn. I get things wrong way more than I get them right.
    I am searching for fruit trees that will grow locally. Surprised how many there are that I've never seen or heard of before. I think I will grow some in large pots so they can come with us if/when we move again.

    I recommend Guava. They have a lovely perfumely taste and they make excellent preserves!


    Or orange... (or lemon, or lime) They produce fruit while they're still relatively small.

    I have a lemon, mandarin and fig. They are all in their first year and producing a little fruit. Used to have peach, nectarine, pear and orange, and will get those again. Zach has decided we should have finger limes. The list is getting long :)

    Limes can be cool... o_o You can make guacamole with those.
    Owners of our house came by today to investigate incorrectly-positioned fence. They couldn't believe such a huge mistake could be made, and will contact the builders to see about getting it fixed. They are happy for us to plant fruit trees galore and have poultry. So I might be getting poultry again :)

    That's neat that you have all that. Someday I would like to have some land where I can have livestock. I bet it's a lot of work with upkeep though.

    Animals are a lot of work and responsibility. I keep thinking when we lose our cats and dog we shouldn't get more, because vets, boarding, snakes, ticks, etc. And then I see a cute kitty or puppy and "goodbye common sense and logic and reasoning". The "dream" is to have all of this stuff, but actually own it rather than renting.

    Used to have pygmy goats. They were so affectionate. I highly recommend them.
    It's so stinkin' hot, and we haven't even hit summer yet :( Winter, please come back now. You really weren't that bad, after all.

    The cloud is moving north. It's finally raining here, after about 8 months of summer :o

    Envy. Cold never bothered me when I was fatter last year, now it's preventing me from going for my runs

    Still summer here in Florida too.
    Gotta love it when you get into that scripting "zone". Easy to focus, and the code almost writes itself. Everything "just works". Soon I will actually do a play test.

    Five hours of coding later, and I am ready to test. I'll take bets on how many errors cause the plugin to be rejected, as well as how many logic errors I have.

    At least 0. You can't say I'm wrong ;)

    I had to fix 4 errors before the game would run, and so far only one logic error. Not bad for a total of 8 hours of coding. Today I implement some changes I thought about overnight, and then put it through its paces.
    I am in awe, and have much gratitude, at the large number of people releasing plugins and resources as "free for use in commercial games" or "contact me for use in commercial games". Thank you all. This community is amazing.

    I noticed that too. Back in the XP release days that was unheard of. This is a great community.

    Same here. I am proud to be apart this great community.
    Next year I will do my taxes earlier instead of putting them off. Sent everything to the accountant at the start of the week, rang today to make an appointment, only to be told he's on vacation.

    It's easy if you have a paid job - they just send you the form and you pass it on. But working for yourself, freelancing, contracting - where you don't have to pay taxes up-front and/or have to track all your expenses ... if you're not super organized (and I'm not) it's a lot of work at the last minute.

    I hear that, Shaz. Getting ahead of taxes as a self-employed individual takes a lot of work.

    Reminds me of having a paper route. I had to do taxes every month cause I was a contractor. Had to save all job receipts gas, snacks, etc.
    Is anyone using the resource packs (non-RM license) to make a 2D game in Unity? Can you PM me please?
    Hollow 1977

    Did not know that was possible.

    GameDevFort has a number of resource packs that can be used outside of RPG Maker.
    Today's tasks: submitting tax return and prepping son's homeschool report and next year's application. It's going to be a long week. I WISH it was a day's task.
    mmm ... which plugin to port next? Dynamic Traits/Effects, Clone Events, Multi Timers, State add/remove commands or large sprite collision?

    State Add/Remove commands!

    Large sprite collision please! lol. I remember looking for a working solution for Ace a long time ago and finally succeeded by editing/modifying Victor Engine - Pixel Movement script. Hope the MV conversion goes smoothly for you!
    Guys, if you need plugins or need help with plugins, PLEASE post in the JS Plugin Requests/Support forums.
    If you have posted bugs in the previously-pinned bug thread and it hasn't been resolved yet, could you please post a NEW thread in the MV Support section? Everyone posting in the same place (many not real bugs at all) has just make it too hard to keep track of. Thanks :)

    Can I just bump my original report (it was in its own thread before the consolidated thread started.) It's the elf ear issue for SV, TV, and TVD chars in the generator. Or do you think that's something that won't be addressed?

    It's already been logged with kdkw, but hasn't been actioned yet. There is no comment saying it's NOT going to be done at this stage.

    Thanks for the update. Since it's already on the radar I'll refrain from bumping the old post.
    Just looking through some of my Ace script threads, and finding the first page missing on several of them. Worse is that it looks like I put the scripts into the threads, prior to starting to use pastebin. So they're gone :( I will have to pull them out of my game, which is harder because when I wrote them, I decided merging with the RTP scripts was the way to go :(
    If your status update is locked or has been deleted, it's because you broke the rules. Please read and become familiar with them. Link to forum rules in lower right corner of every page. They include a link to the status feed rules.

    Oh wow! Had no idea they were situated on the lower right of every page. Very informative and good to know! =)
    Despite my many encouragements to hang in there just a little bit longer, my keyboard finally gave out on me. I cannot put it off any longer. Time to pull off all the keys, clean everything, and then the jigsaw puzzle that is putting it all back together. I hate typing on "normal" keyboards. So many typos!
    Hollow 1977
    Hollow 1977
    Ouch. It will defintely take a while to get used to. The newer keyboards smaller and keys are in different orders. Maybe you can find a match on ebay.

    Couldn't handle the replacement - typo on just about every word. So an hour's drive to check out Officeworks for something as close as possible. Still poor in comparison. Guess I'll just have to order one in and make do until it arrives.
    Whoa! Nice reorganization of the forum Nathanial! Now we just have to get people to post in the MV Plugin area rather than MV Support when it's appropriate. Thank you for all your hard work :)
    RPGMakerWeb forum is so soul-crushing! 25 pages of "new content" only takes me as far back as yesterday morning. You people need to stop posting so I can get some work done.

My new 49" monitor has been dispatched from the warehouse. Will it arrive tomorrow? The day after? I love that we can track packages now, even if it does only tell me when it's left that end and when it's arrived at the local centre. As long as it doesn't end up in Melbourne again, which has happened before ...
My friend's doing a surprise stream of my game Origin Hunt on Twitch here ! Feel free to stop by :yhappy:
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!
both love and pain have no boundaries
Happy Saint Nicholas Day! May there nice stuff in your shoes when you wake up!
