  • I found the original names for these Ace characters. But the numbers are all off. They start at 0. Not 1. Ralph is 1-0. Not 1-1.

    I remember that in the first days of Ace there was a little confusion about the numbering. Some sites would start with 0, others with 1 and somehow one stuck and that numbering was taken over to the newer makers.

    I'm just going by the numbers in the game. IDK why it starts at zero. But I'll stick with it for simplicity's sake.
    I swear my game is actually evil. Things just happen without reason. No idea why my Mason skill vanishes. It just does.

    And now all my characters can't move because I moved them from one map to another.
    So I spent 10 seconds putting a tile that fell off the wall back into place. And the next hour trying to scrub off the super glue that stuck all my fingers together.

    Belatedly, but good to know: if you don't have nail polish remover (the classic superglue fix), a soak in liquid laundry detergent can help loosen superglue! We learned this when a tube of krazy glue exploded in my roommate's hand, and neither of us owned nail polish remover XD
    I just watched the movie America Ultra. Even though I watched it for free I still want my money back.

    Oh yeah, it's not a particularly strong story or anything. And I could easily make a list of issues I have with it.

    There is actually no reason for the movie to happen at all. Here is who the phone call should have went with Agent Victoria. Mystery man: We are gonna eliminate Mile Howell even though he isn't a threat. Won't become one. Has a handler to make sure he doesn't. Has his memory wiped. And kill lots of innocent people in the way. Because of reasons.

    As far as I remember that basically WAS how the phone call went. It was terrible people being incredibly stupid with power.
    I think that I'll have to follow my brother's advise and buy some fart spray to stink him out. But he'll prolly just start show up wearing a gas mask then.
    So I woke up today and saw my cat sleeping with my brother. Curled up right next to his head. My brother who was gone for 2 weeks. And I have to pick up my cat to carry him to bed with me. So I made a cell phone video where I called him a 'traitor.'

    I know this feeling! My cat has been sleeping with my mother for awhile now (and she has her own cat) and NOW my cat is finally sleeping with me... Traitor indeed. XD

    I woke up a few hours later and saw my brother's car laying beside my cat laying by my brother's head. And those cats don't even really like one another. On account, my brother's cat keeps mounting my cat for territorial dominance.
    Anyone know where i can find a medieval cook book that I don't have to buy to read?
    TeiRaven
    TeiRaven
    There weren't really cookbooks as such for peasants, because their food was based so much on what was available at the moment. Bread, ale, and pottage are the staples.

    ModernHistoryTV on YouTube has a video specifically about medieval English peasant food! (1/2)

    TeiRaven
    (2/2) And if you have a little more time, there's a lot of food info throughout the Tudor Monastery Farm and Secrets of the Medieval Castle documentaries, both originally BBC but available free from several YouTube, though the Castle one is set in France!

    Thanks, I'll look it up.
    Did you know if you take the 'D' out of Devil it spells Evil. I wonder if that's intentional?

    I rather wonder who was brave enough to put the D into evil?

    @kirbwarrior As Ed McMahon would say, "You are correct, Sir." I had to look it up. God, I'm old. Speaking of God I didn't even think of it that way.
    @Avery Nope. I prefer to not be banned.

    Oh cool, I was going off old knowledge that I wasn't even certain I checked deeply into. Since the added letters are D and O, I wonder what we're supposed to DO with this info.
    @Avery Putting it into evil is fine, but you're never supposed to stick it in crazy. Wouldn't even make sense, Crazdy is nonsense.
    Does it only count as a info dump if you are expected to remember a whole lot of info when if only shows up once or can it just be in a book you can read so it doesn't melt your brain?
    MarxMayhem
    MarxMayhem
    Then no: It's not an info dump if learning it is optional.
    Aoi Ninami

    It's still an infodump if opening the book gives you a long text that you have to read through and analyse to pick out important parts. As an alternative, you could make the book interactive, with a table of contents so the player can select one thing at a time to read about.

    Infodumping is not necessarily bad. The text logs in AM2R, for example, are very effective at building up the atmosphere and lore of the game.
    Tanarex

    @Aoi Ninami No. Opening the Book just shows you the Chapters. Yes, it has a multiple-choice chapter list. When you finish one chapter it takes you back to the chapter list. To close the book all you have to do is scroll down to the bottom where it has a close book option. But the introduction Chapter is 7 text boxes. Most of the other chapters are 2-5 test boxes.
    What's funny in warcraft 3 FT is that if you let one pack horse escape on the 1st mission it counts as 'one villager escaped'. Unless it's Mr. Ed I don't think he'll be rebuilding the Alliance.
    Whenever I'm feeling down I like to watch Bardic Inspiration by Deerstalker Pictures
    on youtube. Because 'my mockery is Vicious.' It's funny and catchy like the flu.
    Now all I have to do is write something about Ice magic and why it counters Wind magic. And I got nothing. Except song lyrics.
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    I just realized I'll have to rewrite about Earth being the only solid object on the elemental list. Maybe I should get rid of ice magic altogether.
    MarxMayhem
    MarxMayhem
    If it supports your lore and mechanics, go ahead. For me personally, you can make Earth beat Wind because Earth do not easily get moved by wind. Few are things that can break Earth's solidity- like Water.

    Well, I don't really go into magic lore in this game. Only 1 in 4 characters can cast spells. Where usually everyone and their dog can cast spells in most RPGs. To quote Syndrome, "And when everyone's super, no-one will be." Magic should be rare and unique. I did have a good reason that a rock is only dangerous when thrown and can be shattered. And I have Earth beats Lightning because it's solid.
    My brother like is that bad dog that will eat anything left on the kitchen table when no one else is around. Except he can also open the fridge. Doesn't ask. Just eats it.
    The only way I can get my cat to exercise is by throwing cat treats across the room so he will run after them.

    @StrawberryFlower You shouldn't let little things like that stop you from talking. I've done so many far worse things. Just forgive and forget.

    Technically, we weren't really talking before the incident tbh. I'm not really mad at him or anything. Just indifferent.

    It's my Party and I'll cry if I want to. The best b-day present I could have is if my mapper came back. No idea where he went.

    Yep. My Game is stuck back in limbo. So close to working on the end game.
    More words of wisdom: Trying to make everyone happy will just make you miserable.

    Thats some good words of wisdom right there. If people focused on making themselves happy without hurting others, everyone would be happy.

    Went through this with my partner a while back. She was so hung up on trying to keep her overbearing mother happy that she would cancel OUR plans. I eventually had to tell her we're two adults trying to make it on our own. Other people, no matter who else, are responsible for their own happiness.

In one of our campus classrooms was a bag full of stuff people forgot there... my bag. That I forgot there xD
You know your room is too tiny for how much stuff you have when it gives you literal insomnia. I just cleared a bunch of stuff out and man it feels good!
