Nintendo... "Global Trade System" for Pokémon was great. Pokémon Trading on the Switch is garbage. Need GTS back, please! Nov 17, 2019 at 8:19 AM

      I bought an iPad. So far, it's been "fun" setting it up. Takes pretty good pictures though. I kind of can't wait to put some music on it.

      Yet another piece of my cutscene is done. Oh, I also *grumble, grumble* did some more animations too... Mehhhhh

      I dropped two of my cutscenes in the intro because they were getting frustrating to animate. Plus, they existed for flash and not story.

        trying to animate 12 sprites at once, keep the motion fluid, keep all their movements fluid, and keep them from all bumping into each other or causing glitches. The main problem was that my soldiers would "stop" in their tracks when I played a spell animation over them. It was difficult to show them getting hit in "mid run" without it looking janky.

        Yeah, the animations have some weird rules\limitations attached to them. You could've pulled it off, but it would've been a huge hassle for something you don't think serves much of a purpose. I love me some eye candy, though. :D

        If it makes you feel any better about the eye candy, the next scene is the complete destruction of a "continent" with a roughly 35 second animation, that happens 'cause of the aforementioned Elementals. :D

      It's crazy to think I've reworked this one battle scene 5 times so far to get it feel more smooth and natural. Ah, eventing, my old friend.

        Fade in... set player to transparent and through. Move Event 001 up, up, up, right, play animation on Event 003, Don't wait until complete. Display Text Box.

        The pain is real. Though, I am happy to finally be eventing instead of doing database work :D

        I like the low numbers, I find them easier to balance. Plus, it makes every stat point you are given through weapons, armor, buffs, and permanent increase items, worthwhile to the player.

        Times like this can be rough. Keep the bigger picture in mind - why you're doing it all - as your motivation. And when you have a couple hours to yourself, even if it's just at night after work, treat yourself well and do what you enjoy.

        @Dalph Actually yes, I'm just comparing the numbers. Because benchmarks show the whole device is either optimized better or more compatible. Which huawei, I have to admit, have problems with, just like with the powwr of their gpu. But there's still a lot of space for user modifications.

        Someone who works at Apple recommended me an iPod Touch for just my needs. Said there was no need to spend a lot of money for just what I wanted to use it for. I'm still deciding if I want something a little more robust than that. But, the "I only spend $100" option is quite nice.

        It's a man and his best friend/mentor. They've been through crap and back together. They adopted the phrase between each other as admission of their roles in combat when they fight together. One fights the angels, the other fights the demons. :D

        The real question is going to be... As the man... Do you kill your best friend and mentor... Or your family?

        @starlight dream Not just that, but being on my feet all day, making sure all my employees are having a good day and they keep their morale high... It kind of drains you. Physically, Emotionally, Creatively. I often get home and go, "I just want to make supper and go to bed". And then I usually just watch kitten videos to unwind.

        Yeah, I'm most creative during weekends now and get my work done then. It sucks, 'cause I'm making much slower progress, but at least it's like full days of progress now. If nobody bugs me on a weekend, I sit down and write and script, and then I begin transitioning that material into my game. But, it's rough during a week.

        I hoping players find it interesting. It's meant to set up the characters and personalities of my main cast (so, it's like 1 cutscene per character where they talk to someone or are doing something) as well as to set up the basic premise of the world. It's fairly lengthy so far and I'm only 3 characters in, but I'm hoping it's the only time I'll need to dump so much exposition on a player.

        I don't have a PlayStation, so I can't speak for that system. :D But, it's crazy. The players I was against ended up screwing themselves in terms of strategy, so I told them what to do next time when the game was over, and what has proceeded is a 20 minute back and forth conversation about how I'm salty and that they want to 1v1 me in Fortnite.

        Apparently, the story is handled like this: Before you leave Vault 76, the Overseer gives you some kind of Quest. The Quest somehow spans every location in the Wasteland and you resolve it somehow... It's been theorized that you go to a location, find out it isn't what you expected, or you need something, so you go Quest to resolve it.

        They removed the "Radiant Quests" for things like, "Group Quests" and "Dynamic Events". Stuff that just shows up and is repeatable. Randomly spawns on the map. Things of that nature. Apparently, such things reward you well, but there's no word on how frequent they are.
