Making tiles is strangely relaxing. But boy does it eat up time fast. :( May 16, 2019 at 11:55 PM

        Last time I spent 3 hours just editing an autotile :dizzy:

      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.

        Oh man... I can hear those weird gurgling sounds in the Jungle/Bugmuck already. And that first boss? Great nostalgia!

      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.

      Touched rpg maker for the first time in weeks. There really was a lot I was making that I just don't need.

      Kind of hard to be hopeful lately. Feels like everything is going wrong. Wish this could be fun again.

        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.

        Sometimes you need to make a pact with the devil to succeed, especially when the exam period comes.

      Indecision is still a huge problem. But I spent some time today learning how to work the status menu. And got a result I like a lot better.

      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.

        Know any short projects to try out? Maybe one's in ACE since that's what I'm using.

      Managed to figure out how to get battlers to use sprite sheets. Animated battlers are a possibility now - so that's some good progress down.

      Need to figure out how the animations play sheets like gifs. Hoping it won't be too hard.

        I should have said Sprite Character. I'm starting to get why they use sprite sheets instead of gifs.

      Understand how to make auto tiles to work, don't know how to get houses/cliffs to merge together. Maps are not my thing.

        Generally not that hard if you have the bits of pieces already made. I generally just make sections in MV's editor and then put them together in photoshop when I can't get it to look right in the editor.

        You know, thanks. I'm gonna give it a shot and see if I can do some maps with it. I like drawing better than tiling.

        You're quite welcome. Just remember to set the file name properly for parallax mapping and you should be golden. =]
