I am a complete fool. I went through the trouble of making a clone sprite and setting up a system to have the characters flash, when it turns out - I never noticed that the "._mainSprite" was the actual bitmap being used. I'm happy since that makes compatibility easier, but I also want to scream.
I finally did an array, though I think it needs work. I had it add a bunch of states passively. Except I put death in the array by mistake, so the second I hit new game the screen instantly went to game over. Is that what it's like to play dark souls?
I moved back to MV awhile ago, having effekseer, mz, and clip paint was turning my laptop fan into an attack helicopter. But I did learn some tricks so it wasn't a waste. Just wish I would have bought it for steam though in case I got a new comp.
So technically I just ate sausages that were a year old. Use by date was 12/27/2021. But since those dates are just guesses with no scientific reasoning behind them I'll prolly be fine. Guess I know soon if I'm praying to the Porcelain God.
People laughed at me when I said that Activision Blizzard would get bought up by another company if they didn't fire their execs. Now their value has dipped so much Microsoft is willing to buy the company, likely followed by some heavy terminations if they want to purify the current toxic image of Activision Blizzard.
ok hear me out here: if the only way my brain can describe things is like with colors is this normal? Like I've described a smell as "dark green and fuzzy" and a taste as "dark blue" like is this a normal thing that happens to people or am I just going insane?? o.0
