  • Making progress on a commissioned battle system. Even though my commissions thread says I don't like battle systems and please don't ask me to do them. And after this commission, my NEXT commission is ... a battle system. I'm such a sucker :(

    Their saving grace is that they are both interesting and off the beaten path (not that I've beaten too many paths wrt battle systems)
    If you need resources or assistance with your game, please post about it in the appropriate forum, NOT in the profile/status feeds.

    Mah bad. I suppose that's a good idea.


    Keep the status feed less cluttered...
    Shaz
    Shaz
    And easier for people to actually see that you need help. I keep checking for new posts, not new status updates, so if you post here, chances are I won't see your request until LONG after you've made it ;)

    Exact opposite of me, Shaz xD


    I can easily blow hours just hanging around the front page, as opposed to skimming over the forums constantly.
    Just had my first-ever need to use array.flatten - who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

    Hmm I don't even know what that is

    converts a multi-dimensional array into a single-dimensional array.

    [[1,2],[3,4],[5,6]].flatten becomes [1,2,3,4,5,6]
    lol - someone needs to make some REAL topics so my pinned stuff disappears!
    Please stop spamming the status updates folks. It's already been done to death.

    I wasn't here last year. Did I miss something? Is this the day everyone in the forums loses their minds or something?

    Last year an unknown assailant (hereby referred to as Kilim) began to flip tables in the status update section of the forums. People soon followed until the status updates were overrun by table flips for around 3 days before the moderators could keep things under control.
    Whew! Three years of income tax figures sorted and off to the accountant. So glad to finally get that out of the way! NEXT time I won't wait so long ... (I did say that last time too)

    oh, I see... so you keep all records of payments received and all expenses? sounds really tedious
    Shaz
    Shaz
    You don't receive individual payments for games (unless you're using Paypal as a payment provider). BMT Micro gives you a statement and sends you money at the start of every month. But yes, you have to keep track of individual expenses.

    Ah... I see... I won't probably be selling anything in the near future anyway, but I'm looking at BMT and gumroad as options... anyway, good luck on your games, I actually see lots of people playing your games... :)
    Is it weird that I'm getting a kick out of doing tax returns? I'm only 3 years behind ...

    That's okay :) I'm going through the ways I need to redo my script.

    And... Have fun > :D
    That moment when realizing WHY your script isn't working, gets you no closer to a solution.

    Having a debugger would indeed be incredible valuable.
    Zeriab
    Zeriab
    Also actually knowing how it should work helps incredible when debugging an error.


    Recently I was trying fix a logical error at work where I did not know nor understand how it should work. Nobody I could find knew how it should work either :x

    Debugging scripts is a real pain sometimes. I wonder if it's possible to make a debugger without stepping into illegal modification territory. I want to take a look at that some day.

    Well my global beta tester registration is filled with unwanted spam about something bad. It really filled my e-mail with it. I already put counter measure on it but I still received spam than tester request (Idk. why but the system allowed you to keep any commercial game they tested for free, I was expected a few new tester request). I could really fell your pain.

    I think Shaz is talking about the people posting those spam wall of texts in this forum... On the other community that I've into, we also have these problems...

    I know the feeling. I'm a mod on a different site, and there are trolls who just LOVED to bypass IP bans via the TOR Proxy.


    Joke's on them, since the owner of the site created a proxy block that can block TOR. Still slips by on occasion.
    Setting up a blog and pastebin for my scripts. Who'd have thought that creating banners and deciding what to put in the sidebar would be worse than actually scripting?

    You'll get it right on first try. I got faith in you.

    lol - well, it took me about 11 tries before I got it right. Now I've just got to do the same for every other script I want to post :)

    Good luck. I have faith in you as well.
    While pulling out my mouse script into a standalone, I've found at least one thing that just doesn't work, and a couple of things that can be done in a much better way. They're fixed in the standalone, but do I now go back and mod my own project, or adopt the 'if it ain't broke ...' attitude?

    You're welcome. There are brazil nuts, walnuts, peanuts, cashews, almonds, pistachios, macadamias, and dozens of other assorted nuts in there. You will be finding them for days.
    Outlining a side quest in Word just to get the switch/variable sequence right before eventing it. 1 quest, 4 steps, 3 NPCs, 3 'item' events. Just the outline took 4 pages. And this is supposed to be a relatively easy quest.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    I do the whole, entire game like that. Main quest, from start to finish, could take a few hundred page (dialogue included), and I'm expecting my game to only be 10 hours long. You need to be able to look back and make sure you're using the right switches and variables that you've referenced elsewhere. "Throwing stuff at it and hoping it works" is a sure-fire way to have a bug-filled game. ESPECIALLY one as big as you're aiming for.

    I'm new to this, I'm LEARNING! ;)


    As to the hundreds of pages for the main quest... I've already got that outlined over the course of nearly 350 pages... Course, that's not got any kind of switches, variables, or anything-it's based off a book I wrote because I found out that games needed hundreds of pages of outlines!


    I'll get there, eventually. Mostly still learning the system and GOOD event skills, and still trying to figure out EXAC...

3am me: So how do you feel about a character inviting their own character portrait to a tea party? =D

3pm me: //facepalms
I turned 17 two months ago and I feel like I've grown (personality-wise) more in this 1 year than all the 16 years I had lived combined.
Ugh, I may have been cumbersomely eventing a bunch of stuff I could have easily done changing the tileset "Passage (4 dir)" and "Ladder" options. Oops :D
I have no idea why some of the program "splash screen" always on top. E.g, RMMZ loading screen stuck on the top blocking anything I want to do until it fully loaded. What is even the purpose?
One of the secret places in the game.
