Welp. I'm downloading MV off of Steam. So with my luck that means the even newer rpg maker should be coming out now. Jul 4, 2019

        Theres only incremental improvements across versions so no reason to switch engines if a new one is released anyways.

        MV is very good, I don't think a new RPG Maker will be released soon.

        Personally, I would only cry about it if they did release a new one and it had built in tile-size/resolution changing features added. T.T ....I would definitely cry about that.

      So, 8 more days left in MV trial. So far my biggest draw is the damage pop up, enemy selecting - and having scripts outside of the game.

        I have all the RMs on Steam, and haven't had a issue with any of them.

        You know, I think I might just get it. I was kind of avoiding getting any RM's over steam since I didn't want to have to be logged into steam to use it.

      Spending some more time with MV trial, I managed to recreate a sprite jiggling script I made for Ace.

      Tried out the trial for MV. It looks really nice but java looks confusing and I don't think I'd be able to convert my visual battler scripts

        I can vouch js is more robust than ruby. But I hate asynchronous environment :(

        Asynchronous environment is awesome, it's just not the easiest to setup. And it would be nice if Web workers had access to DOM, because without that their usefulness is pretty much crippled.

        Yeeeees. The only projects I ever finish are the ones where I start simple and I'm constantly cutting back as I work. Feature bloat is such a problem.

      Making tiles is strangely relaxing. But boy does it eat up time fast. :(

      Part of me wants to just plop my personal scripts online so I can get help with them. But then people might take it. So I don't know.

      Been thinking about scrapping this diagonal movement script I made. Turns out area's feel bigger when you can only move 4 directions.

      Making small compromises with what I need and don't need is a step in the right direction I guess?

      The thing holding me back the most - is that I want to go nuts and have fun with my games plot but at the same time want to play it safe.

        My advice, don’t play it safe. Experiment with controversial elements, it will definitely catch the players eye. Yes, it will definitely offend people. Anything can offend anyone. Don’t let anyone hold you back, other wise it’s not really your dream story plot/masterpiece. It never will be because you didn’t make it from how you really wanted.

      If there's one rpg game I wish I could go back in time and play - it would be Secret of Evermore. I'm a sap for a boy and his dog stories.

      Feeling a bit better giving myself time to try out sprite making. Though I struggle getting a decent perspective.

      Keep forgetting how loud the default sound settings are and keep getting jump scared by Ace's default music.

        Happens to me in mv as well, everytime I forget to turn off the Sounds, so now I triple check it everytime before testing

        I always set my master volume at low, so never had a problem with it. But true, the default title screen is quite a jumpscare.

        If there's nothing that makes you relax, try meditating and think about your environment, and see if it makes a difference. :)

        TBH a bite of dark chocolate is far more healthy and provides a good boost to energy. I don't drink caffeine anymore, and this works wonders for me.

      Going through my latest script testing ground, and trying to organize things. It's pretty messy right now.

      been losing interest in game making - told myself I had so much ideas, but none were fleshed out. Burnt out - might just need a break.

        I found that when I start to falter, I can get inspired by helping someone else with a small part of their project, be it an eventing system or a sprite or two.
