    Placed a $60 order for sprites. Finger crossed. I hope I don't get scammed.

    I think it's best to pay after delivery. While we all want to assume the best, if the person paying is a scammer, the sprite artist still has assets they can sell or reuse. If the sprite artist is the scammer and you've already paid, you don't have much recourse. :\

    I'm sure it will be fine though, just keep in contact with them.

    It's a commision site. You can still dispute. As a result I think I'll be good so far. Otherwise I never pay full out of commision sites. eg: this site is not commision based and admins doesn't have any power to refund the fuill money if anyone gets ripped or scammed.

    Gotcha. Generally, most people are honest I feel. Should be good!

    Don't be that way. What happened to all the self-help philosophizing? Sometimes people are busy, or maybe they just don't have the right answers to give.

    Also: “The wise remind themselves that ‘This too shall pass’ even when things are good; the foolish, only when things are bad.” and "when you are unhappy, happy people are disgusting." always makes me chuckle when I'm feeling down.
    "Vijaya" means winning over something materialistic/individual.

    "Jaya" means winning over yourself.

    One of my goal in this life is to win over myself. to winover all the emotionas, guilt, sadness and even happiness.

    Personally, life without emotions sounds bleak to me. I'll take the negative emotions, if means getting to experience the positive ones.

    yep, I agree lol.
    Also there's a very nice line in one of my fav.openings (Again by YUI) "I'd rather feel pain than feel nothing" (its probably translated wrong, bc I translated it to English from Polish cover). Its honestly my favorite line. Life without emotions is just dull lmao.
    Just like some people have cheating as their weakness ... just like that some people have honesty as their weakness.

    is Scripter the one who designs levels? and the Eventer is the one who makes cutscenes?

    the eventer creates in-map events, including but not limited to cutscenes.
    the scripter creates game-wide scripts, including menus, scenes, battle actions, database objects and visual effects.

    Generally, yes. Go a bit higher skill level, and meanings can change.
    An eventer would become like a scripter. Except instead of creating mechanics with code, they'll be creating them through complex events.

    This eventer may not have the skills to create engaging cutscenes. Since it requires a completely different set of skills, and a fine interpretation of the story.

    So a cutscene-maker would be a separate role.

    MV and MZ use scripts as well, but the method of adding them to the game is different, hence the term "plugin". I think a lot of people confuse the word "script" with the dialogue and actions that movie actors work off, and I suspect that's why a lot of people use the word "scripting" when they're really talking about "eventing"

    I have only one protocol ... if you live then live for yourself, and if you think then think for others

    But, living for yourself is pretty much exactly the opposite of altruism. So, the statement would contradict itself. I can also think of several interpretations of "think for others", none of them exactly... kind.

    I interpret it as "your own survivability is the priority". But if you have time to think, use it to think/help others.

    It means, you come first Regardless of situation and life curves. after you, then others get their way in life. Always live for yourself first. :thumbsup-right:

    I'm just bored man, don't read to much into it. If someone wants to quote philosophical quips that inspire them then I'm going to respond in kind, my user name is pig-Latin meaning "vagrant philosopher", and your posts are just low-hanging fruit I can't resist.

    I think there is something lost in translation with this one, because in English it is kind of dark. I have a hunch hope isn't as multifaceted and loaded a term in Hindi as it can be in English.

    I guess it should be loss of want/greed instead of loss of hope... cause hope is one of the reasons why people can go on with their lives- in hopes that life will become better. Abandoning hope means abandoning everything and giving up imo.

    I've started my project pre-production, since last year.Now that I have moved to production, everyone is running away from me.I feel very frustrated and very angry. BUT NEVER SAD. NEVER.
    What should I get built first? Sprites or the maps?
    h0tWalker
    h0tWalker
    Depends, is it the story or the characters that make you want to create said game? If characters, creating the characters on paper (not sprite). As they will probably determine the style of the world. If its the story, then create the maps first as the world is the story. That way, it's easier to implement the characters later on. Even so, have a general idea of your main cast, and if in doubt, go with maps first.

    I would start with maps. You can use default sprites as placeholders and they are easy to change out when you get them commissioned. But getting your maps done you can start creating events and building the game while you wait on the custom sprites.

Observation Log 1 on the planet of "RPGMAKERWEB": Local RMXP community seems to have very few survivors. Their script tech-level is in the early Stone Age(about the same as 66RPG in 2007).
Some cats/wolves/squirrels are spotted, they are likely friendly. :3
Keep working on establishing more meaningful contacts.
May try to use the "I Come in Peace" protocol if encounter any hostiles.
Using hiddenone's QTE tutorial I've been able to setup a simple fishing system. Instead of just the pointer moving, the goal moves as well. Holding the action button scrolls the pointer and pressing the down arrow key hooks the fish. The speed of both is variable as well as the number of successful hooks needed for a catch.
When someone helps you solve a problem, it's good to report the thread so it can be closed, but it's also nice to go back and post in the thread to let them know their suggestion actually worked. And, you know, to say thanks for helping.
