My new computer is set up. I'm so happy that I can work without having to slap my computer anymore. Mar 25, 2019 at 12:55 PM

      Computer is ready for pickup 1 week early! So much work to catch up on! I've got prep files for transfer now.

      It's going to be a couple of weeks until the new computer. I'm not so sure I can do the birthday event but I'll be wishing luck to y'all.

      I didn't get picked in the jury selection today. I'm free omg I'm free. Getting back to working in RPG Maker soon.

        I was selected once, but got eliminated after the interviews.

        The selection process when I did it was someone saying "if you can think of an excuse, sit over there to be questioned"... I didn't think "I just don't want to be here" would've been a good enough excuse, luckily it was a pretty short trial.

        The particular trial I could have been picked for would have lasted into next month. I can't divulge details, but getting picked would have drastically delayed a lot of plans. Three days of jury selection was already rough - several weeks of actual trial would have been torture for me as someone who does creative writing as an income source.

      I just bought an amazing plugin from Atelier Irina. I feel excited for when I have a new computer and I can put this plugin to use.

        Got it. I was about to consider into buying GENE, but then, this bad girl appeared before my eyes.

        It's amazing, I highly recommend it! ^.^ Funny about GENE, I bought that first just because I am using a ton of busts as well. But the instant I saw this fabulous beast, I snagged it up LOL
        I use GENE for other image things (picture menus and such) since the instant drag and drop picture positions is quite useful anyway.

      I'll have a new computer this month if everything goes well. I might participate in the RPG Maker birthday event with a demo.

      A few more weeks before I'm back to having a computer that works properly. In the meanwhile, I received a summons for jury duty. Boohaha.

        Yeah. I had a summons recently. Had to tell them flat out I couldn't make it on account that I was recovering from stroke symptoms.

        The last time I was called, I was a student, so I was able to get exempt, but I'd graduated since then so that's a no go for getting out of it. Ah well.

      I'm thinking about scrapping half of the original concept for my first RPG Maker game to take full advantage of an amazing stock resource.

        The setting would remain the same, but I might have to make some drastic changes to the story progression depending on where my imagination takes me in the revision.

        Well... only you can decide it it's worth it and if the story is served by such a change. Whatever the decision I wish you luck :)

      Registering copyright with the U.S. government is apparently much better than just relying on regular free protection.

        Being able to claim statutory damages and attorney's fees is a big deal for deterring people from stealing your game and trying to sell it as if it were their own.

      When I have a reliable home computer again, the first thing I'll do is make a new flip book for the internet resources I've found. So many.

      I've decided to nix a concept that I was going to apply on my first game, to make the story more cohesive and raise the stakes of conflict.

        I was going to make it several different stories to choose from at the beginning, but I can do more with this particular game's premise if I condense the different stories into one.

        Form concept --> Make setting --> determine source of conflict --> determine characters --> determine character objectives --> brainstorm possible interactions between characters --> determine endgame --> explore mechanical limitations and possibilities --> revise and repeat as necessary any of the previous steps while trying to refine the expression of the game's concept

      Huh. Putting Steam in offline mode seems to have prevented it from cutting off access to my games, for the most part.

      In a few days I find out whether keeping Steam in Offline mode will prevent it from blocking my OS from accessing my games.

        There's a couple of characters that I intend to use in the pack for my first game, and I have to make edits to them - fortunately edits are allowed for commercial use in RPG Maker on this pack.

        When does it crash? Taking it on safe mode can reveal culprits.

        It's the hardware. The insides get loose and end up touching the bottom casing. I'd had this problem before but it was never fully solved. I could try taking it in to have everything tightened up, but I can't afford to set my wallet back any more than I already have.

        I don't know. The last time Steam did an update blocking OS, it blocked my ability to open RPG Maker.

        Actually, you know what? I'm going to try seeing what happens if I put Steam on Offline Mode just before the deadline, and see if it keeps the client working on my OS.

      The makeshift solution of slapping my laptop from the bottom is keeping it stable for now. Fortunately, it's not a major issue, for now.

        Physically abusing technology always makes it behave. I've found myself threatening my computer on occasion. I think there might be a domestic abuse hotline for machines in the future. xD

        You consider slapping the bottom of your laptop in order to make it work as not a major issue? For some reason I am thinking of that one meme with slapping the top of a car.

        It has to do with a loose thing inside the laptop touching the bottom casing and shorting out.
