    I've been working on this since 2016.
    Anyone know the name of a graveyard watchman's office is called?

    Does it actually have a specific name? I don't think it does. I'd go with whatever gives the atmosphere you're looking for. Maybe something like "the Night Shelter"?

    It has a name. Everything has a name. I just don't know what it is. Searching engines are absolutely useless. It's like asking a monkey to do advanced algebra. UPDATE: Looks like it is called a Watchhouse or watchtower.

    Graveyard guardhouse is what my search turned up for the first time in 1800 to prevent bodysnatching.

    Not to be confused with a caretakers home tho xD
    I don not understand this game at all. I try to change one battle background and it changes it for every enemy. And it's a all looks like Van Gogh starry night painting.

    What are you actually doing to change the battle background?
    Tanarex

    Nevermind. I was changing the background under 'troops'. Guess that's what happens when I give up every couple of months. I forget everything.

    That's what I figured, which was why I asked. :)
    I was watching this one guy play a indie horror game and he picked up a key and the description said, "This key only locks doors." Wouldn't that make it a lock instead of a key?

    "This key only locks *doors*" in comparison with other keys that'd open padlocks, start engines, or open safe boxes.

    I suspect that's a riddle comparable to Silent Hill's "There was a hole here. Now it's gone."

    Well house keys lock AND unlock a door so it makes sense, it could be a typo OR it could be on purpose as to tip you into a door you will have to lock somewhere... who knows :kaoswt2:
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    Yeah, but keys also lock and unlock padlocks. Starts and turns off engines. It just locked doors so the boogeyman didn't pop up behind you. You had to find another key somewhere else to unlock it.
    I cant not for the life of me figure out where this bomb item comes from.

    I'm now adding icons to descriptions to spells, weapons, armor, etc. So they look Cooler. Because nothing says 'cool' like a game that is 6 years behind schedule. It's fashionable late.

    I'm currently learning pixel art....at the age of 32, just because i cant find art that mixes well enough together. I want everything to at least somehow look like its cohesive. Its not going so well, but i cant expect to become a pro in a week xD

    I'm still looking for an alligator battler 6 years later that matches vx ace's art style. So except to see this game a day after never.
    Tell me if this makes sense to you. My brother wrote this fantasy story involving a elf, dwarf, halfling and a human cleric. None of them know each other. The halfling pickpockets the dwarf and is captured b the elf. The cleric has some vision that those 3 can stop a great evil. When guards show up the cleric turns in the halfling. For no reason.

    Lol, is your brother pretty young? It sounds like he just needs some guidance in the plot department.
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    Well, he needs help with plot, character motivations, backstory, theme, story structure, setting, style, and tone. No, my brother is about to turn 51 in 2 months.
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    Updated that literally, no one asked for. After month-long debates, I finally convinced my brother that the cleric shouldn't hand over the halfling thief that would be sent to a horrible prison with no chance of survival or escape. Now, the dwarf turns the halfing in. So... yay...progress.
    In his usual condescending way my brother asked me how I'd write his story because of all it's problems. So I have each of his character's dying more violently then the last. It's ok they were all terrible people anyway.
    just destroyed hours of work again. i don't know why I bother.

    Some of my greatest achievements came from my greatest screw ups. A mistake need not be a bad thing if the lesson learned is a valuable one. Honestly though, it sounds more like you're stressing so much at reaching the destination, you forget to enjoy the journey along the way. And really with how long it takes to make a game, if you don't take time to enjoy the process, you'll never survive to the end. :LZSwink:

    Lucky for me I realized about an hour ago I had it saved on another computer. Now I'm saving it to dropbox. I'll just have to replace the files after I DL again. Sanity saved! For today. Prolly still never finish it. Been working off and on it for about 6 years now.

    How can I look up the components for a medieval bomb for my game without the FBI showing up at my door?

    What type of 'medieval bomb' are you referring to? Are you referring to the old fashioned Black Sphere bombs, which is a iron ball filled with black/gun powder with a fuse sticking out? You can easily look that up on wikipedia. After all, you just researching it for a game, not actually making one.

    Ironically the tools needed to be anonymous online are more likely to draw the attention of government agencies than looking up generic info on explosives. Besides if you're using Windows 10, nothing you do is anonymous anyway. :LZSwink:
    Tanarex

    Animebryan Yes, that. I wanted one character to be able to make bombs. But not need a list of 20 ingredients to do so. I checked Wikipedia. But was vague on the ingredients. As far as I can see it requires, iron, gunpowder, oil, maybe wrapped in leather, and some kinda detonator. Am I leaving something out?
    My brother is an idiot. He wrote a 'foreword' in his story. But instead of a normal foreword it leaves a summary of a chapter in his book. But in the first 51 min read of the first part it never even comes up. And it's not even the main plot.
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    It doesn't even mention the main villain at all. He tells me I have to read the whole story. He doesn't understand what I'm saying. We were watching a Star Trek show on episode 6 and he says," Why don't they just call the show Borg Malfunction?" Trying to mock me on my point but instead validating it. So I said," You are an idiot." And he was just confused.

    @ cthulhusquid Not really. Some people are born dumb. While this quote that was written by some unknown person (Not Benjamin Franklin) said, "We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid." While some are just mentally ill. And others are just filled with so much hate and fear that they don't care what is true or not. They just want to blame others.

    Whahaha! Yup I totally agree! Definetly a Drag Queen (and I know drag queens personaly - actually one IS called Juniper lol)
    Well, i just lost hours of work on my icon set. i dont know why i bother.

    losing any significant amount of work to computer error really sucks, my sympathies, do something else for a while, the icon set will be there when you feel like redoing the work you lost on it
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    It wasn't a computer error. I was using two different icon sets and must have loaded the wrong one. Having ADD sucks.
    Well, I was able to take a break when my brother's cat barfed on my blanket. So I had to go clean that up. But I'm finally back where I started. At this rate, I should be done with my game by 2024.

    I feel you, one time I had a huge scare where I lost everything I did for my game, every single thing I made. Thankfully I had it recovered
    Wouldn't you know it. I just created a stealing icon only to find someone already made one. And its almost identical.

I'm thinking of devouring some tutorials for RPG Maker MV. Just all kinds: mapping, spriting, programming, ect. the whole works! :)

Maybe videos, my brother and I can sit down and watch them during one of our weekly business meetings.
