Finally figured out some code stuff that's been troubling me for some time. Progress feels good. Committing to revision control feels better May 20, 2018 at 2:36 PM

      So somebody took SNES Zelda, Super Metroid and made them into one game with all items randomized between the two. It's fun.

      Never underestimate the power of user error when using a plugin. Even when the user is the author of the plugin... =\

        "User error" should be the ultimate skill attack in a game. It can negate all intelligence, time and space. I have been its victim several times since working with plugins in MV.

        A skill called "User Error" could also just have entirely random results.

        But it would ALWAYS apply the state of "Absolute" on the user because they did everything "exactly right" and it still doesn't work. Been there too many times...

        So just got hit with it! this.chaseSpeed=5 is not the same as this._chaseSpeed=5. One works and the other is 1/2 hour of frustration. LOL

        I know there is no SV battlers but if there are that many sprites at least that is a plus. I've renewed my interest in getting the FES resource pack - thanks!

        There are 62 FULL character sheets in the pack, and not one of them is a light, door, switch, chest, etc. There are some vehicles and I think everything has 4 colour variations. Good variations, though. Not "look I can drag a hue slider" kind of variations.

      If it puts game costs into perspective, a failed MOBA had over 12 million dollars in graphical/sound assets. It adds up fast.

        @Thomas Smith it's a pretty small studio, and if they do everything in house it definitely wouldn't cost that much. The game was pretty bare overall - with their cost to operate etc. I can see them evaluating it at that price but with the amount of resources in the game I just can't believe it when compared to other studio's prices.

        Even if that was not the cost because they did it themselves, it is a pretty good indication of what it would cost to commission stuff like that. A useful thought when looking at how much it costs to buy a Resource Pack

        Some say Windows Steam or Mac Steam - does that means it's available only through Steam, or does it mean you can have a windows download OR through steam? I've only used humble bundle once, and pretty much everything was steam keys.

        Yeah, the games are through steam, with the exception of Crayon Physics; it has a DRM Free mark, which means there will be a downloadable version through Humble Bundle.

        It's a brand thing, mainly. Are women's clothes measured by the waistband in Canada? Where I live women's clothing is all really weird and obtuse sizes, like a pair of women's pants that would fit me (I wear a male 38" to 42" depending on brand) is like a size 9 or 10, never have figured out how women's clothes sizing actually works here other than it clearly isn't based on any form of actual measurement.

        I have no idea how women's sizing works either, other than it doesn't. But, I was not buying anything with a waistband, so I can't really speak toward that anyway. I have at least three sizes of pants that all fit correctly, though, so that's a thing.

        Reading the OP I think it makes sense. It reminds me shoe size from different countries and standards. (Maybe a type of nutrition or peoples not caring if some feet are swollen or not. :/ You have in clothes tallness too to think about.)

        @Poryg I'm not sure comparing providing the necessities of life to making your work professional is at all valid. We do websites for other companies. When we make something look unprofessional, it reflects poorly on those companies. Having an all-caps "OH NO!!" for a 404 page might work if you had a business more fun-oriented, but it should not be on a professional one.

        They probably wanted to promote those links. People get paid to follow and post all sorts of weird things on Twitter.

        Wait wait wait... are we talking about taking images out of context as stock photos? Thought, I imagine bloggers are not all reading the TOU of the artists there!

        (But true, not really plagiarism since the credits are given. But it is a use without creator's consent which ... yeah... sometimes it helps also commercially on the back of starving artists.)
