  • Kadokawa? Degica? Enterbrain? I don't know what to believe anymore... but whoever you are you are awesome.

    Degica is the world-wide publisher. Enterbrain developed VX Ace. Spike Chunsoft (Honestly what even is that name?) developed MV, as far as I'm aware. Kadokawa (KDKW) is the parent compant to both Enterbrain and Spike.


    Degica is a separate company that helps publish products world wide, doing things like community management and translation, I believe. Ultimately, Degica can recommend things that the community wants, but KDKDW gets the final say for development, and promotions held by Degica.

    Nice explanation.  Degica isn't just working with KDKW though, they have other clients too.  I think they mostly translate and distribute games.
    I know each online community has a bit of a "niche" when it comes to what each does... where is the best place to post a story idea or even a demo with the basic story fleshed out to get feedback and possible ideas on how to "tie it together"?

    Have a look at the General Discussion section..


    For story/plot feedback, try
    Do you make all your interior maps for a town on one map? If so, how much space do you leave around so you can't see the other rooms?

    Honestly, I don't, but I should. Like I need to bloat the maps.


    I'll probably go overboard and put at least 20 tiles.

    ace at standard resolution 8 tiles distance will never allow the player to see the rooms on either side.

    I use 20 tiles. Overboard, but this way if I learn one interior needs an extra 2 - 3 tiles I'm still safe.
    ALRIGHT, I tried to hold out but you got me, Degica. Just preordered MV. Now all I need is Yanfly's ATB system and I'll be a happy happy man.

    Won't be part of the initial 37, but we can hope.

    I hope soon! I love that battle system. I turn off all the wait and its so much fun that way
    So after wasting a week not being able to come up with an idea I liked, I was hit with inspiration yesterday. Now the rush is on! But I have so much other stuff to do :(

    Pah, I got hit with inspiration in the middle of making an entirely different game..

    I constantly get hit with inspiration, so I don't see why you're complaining. :p
    If you buy the Humble Bundle and have RPGM already, what happens?

    Got it! Thanks! Now I see, I can choose which ones to download and which to make a "gift" coupon. After IGMC I want to run my own contest with RPGM Deluxe as a prize

    So I could send the ace key to anyone? Hmmmm...
    Ahahaha was about to make a thread asking if the Arum Universe was still in progress... I find that it doesn't come up in search because it has its own board! :)

    Ugh, nobody mentioned the tedium of lawn care and maintenance when I was buying my house. lol. I have a game to make!

    My boyfriend hardly mows our lawn. :( He usually ends up paying one of our friends to do it for him.

    I keep thinking about how nice it would be to go back to having an apartment. I hate mowing lawns.

    I live in a townhouse area where our landlord hires someone to mow our backyards. I am eternally grateful to have beautiful grass that I don't have to mow.
    So I bought GW2 while it was on sale... trying to get into Tarnished Coast server but its FULL... I guess this is the GW 2 equivalent of the hours I spent rerolling stats in other MMOs
    Anyone play Civ5? Montezuma declared war on me and hes not even on the same continent... do I just... ignore him?

    If you're on a map with a lot of water, sometimes it pays to have naval superiority... especially if you blockade ports of other cities or just generally destroy every ship you run across. Computers love to waste resources on huge naval fleets, even when they're unnecessary.

    Thanks! I'm researching Astronomy which will then give me Navigation. Poor Russia is going to die because Montezuma has 5 Captapults assaulting her poor city. And when I talk to her she says "Best of luck with your current conflict"

    My Camatasia Studio trial ended :( Anyone know of a similar free (or at least not $200) program for taking and editing lets play videos?

    Thank you everyone this gave me some options. ...I WILL Let's Play again!! ^_^ I tried the Lolilo before but there (again) was a limitation of not being able to edit without paying, and all the video and audio recorded in the same channel. I like to edit it before uploading to YouTube to remove some of the boring parts or if I screw up the point I'm trying to make (as I'm just doing reviews on my channel right now). I agree with Shaz, and I know I don't have the right...

    ...to say how much dev time went into their program but for $299 a pop, it seems they are price gouging people
    Wow... I just tried Dishonored for the first time and I didn't like it at all.

    It takes a bit of getting used to. Once you get into the first major area that lets you kind of "free roam" around it, it gets more interesting. Though, the stealth mechanic is a bit.... broken. If you want a good stealth game, pick up Deus Ex Human Revolution instead. Dishonored is mostly good for magic and experimentation.
    New game idea just hit me like a ton of bricks. Great... another project for me to probably not finish...

    When you get stucko n ONE project, and you get ideas for another, write them down. Don't leave behind a project like it's an old toy. If you get stuck, get up, stretch. Take a light walk. Get the blood pumpin'. :)

    Starcrescendo, the best advice I can offer, if you are going for multiple projects at one time, would be to KEEP THEM SMALL. I have finished off 3 games now, all of them about 3o mins of gameplay each, NONE of them an RPG. I am working on a 4th, 5th, and 6th game right now (whilst learning Ruby...)
    starcrescendo

    Thanks for the advice! It gets really frustrating sometimes. I've redone my intro multiple times because I keep wanting to tie everything together sometimes and its hard and it feels like a big old black hole... The multiple project thing seems to work well for the most part, because I've never gotten stuck on all 3 projects at one time. I definitely need to take your advice and work a lot SMALLER.
    God I'm so STUPID! Last time, I recorded a video with the Mic turned off. This time, I forgot that I had unplugged it to clean! I will now be doing a Mic test for ALL of my videos -_-

    Don't feel too bad, I taught an online class once with the mic not plugged in. Took me a while to figure out why they said I sounded so distant (as the pc mic was picking me up instead)
    OK I've had enough snow for the season, now! Please. I feel like I'm driving through the bat cave to get out of my driveway

How many parameters is 'too many'??
Yay, now back in action Happy Christmas time, coming back!






Back in action to develop the indie game that has been long overdue... Final Fallacy. A game that keeps on giving! The development never ends as the developer thinks to be the smart cookie by coming back and beginning by saying... "Oh bother, this indie game has been long overdue..." How could one resist such? No-one c
So I was playing with filters and this looked interesting...

Versus the normal look...

Kind of gives a very different feel. :LZSexcite:
To whom ever person or persons who re-did the DS/DS+ asset packs for MV (as in, they are all 48x48, and not just x2 the pixel scale) .... THANK-YOU!!!!!!!!! XwwwwX
