  • Instead of telling my story in novel/story form. Why not use VXACE?

    Because media doesn't translate well between mediums.  You'll be bottle-necking yourself with lack of interaction and dialogue as well as other instruments for a story that can only be used for the written form.


    Look at books brought over to movies or games.  Or games that became movies.  The differences are startling, and the story may change to reflect certain limitations.


    Just remember the story you are telling can change due to the nature of how the audience experiences it.

    A novel and/or movie  generally do not translate well into a game (look at all those crappy movie games for examples :) ).


    Games have way fewer lines of dialogue total and the strongest point of games is interactivity (trying to limit that interactivity starts to turn the game away from actually being a game).  Plus stories are never the actual focus of games for they are not the purpose of games (games with more of a story focus are more about escaping into another reality and placing yourself in another's shoes).


    It is why all these games have generic characters (easy to place yourself in there spot) and game stories only ever reaching B level stories at most (it is hard to make a good story and let all of the players fit into the protagonist's shoes).


    Any game that tries to fight this tends to never sell all that well compared to those that do not fight this (for most people are not all that interested in it).
    I find mapping in RPG maker 2003 oddly better then ACE/MV i think i might be a idiot lmao

    How so /:( ...i would think have more than 3 layers would be a better thing than 2k3 VX and VX aces only three.


    @tearsofthenight


    Personally I think it's more to do with the graphics. The way rm2k/3's tiles are layer out is just better, I think. Except the autotiles, good luck figuring those out, it's a fever dream. X____X

    I like the past chaos temple better (PSX/PSP versions)










    BTW.: it's pretty hard to find this one on youtube, since people always name it wrong as Sunken Shrine/Underwater Temple, that is Kraken's dungeon, not the last one.
    i wonder if theres a script out there that can "herd" animals in ACE by running at them?

    Just use a proximity detector and then have the event move away from player if that detector is triggered

    Just don't do it with cats. Everyone knows you can't herd cats. If you try, just have them move in random directions instead. =P

    There is a forum where you can ask that - it's called Script Requests ;)   Please don't use the status feed to ask for help with your game.
    if only VX ACE had a Herding Script, i could make the "sequel' to Herdy Gerdy!

    More like a Herdy script lol. You could make something better than herdy gerdy!

    I would make a fanboy sim with that script!


    Objective: Herd all the sheep into local game store to buy the latest game and teach them how to defend your game like the world depend on it.

    @Nirwanda Okay I know that was a joke, but "to kill a dungeon" actually sounds like a good game.

"Minus 1 fixes everything" ~ @Tea's Jams

lol, it's true
My game is a puzzle-RPG fusion about non-euclidian geometry, with the main combat system being running through mazes created by the bosses before time runs out, and most of the enemy names and designs are math puns... Is this original enough or need I go on? :kaopride:
I really hope that people like to read my "devlog" in this post. I made a little habit to always go on this post every month and update my progress it's a great way for me to tell myself this: You can do it!
Made a surprising amount of progress in these past two days. Really helps when parallax mapping breaks limitation and allowing me to be creative and make maps that match my vision.
