  • I have no idea why some of the program "splash screen" always on top. E.g, RMMZ loading screen stuck on the top blocking anything I want to do until it fully loaded. What is even the purpose?
    Who would think putting a power button on a side of a laptop is a good thing? You want to move the laptop and you suddenly press the button.

    And then there's Macbook, where the delete button is somewhat hideous to the point you might turning off your laptop instead of deleting something.

    Evil circle of mechanic discussion: "So, I can only do this in RM, how can I use this to design a game ... w-wait, you can do more? How (to implement it)?"
    If you make/have a game, write your game synopsis as stupid as possible here.
    Maybe, it isn't (too) hard. You just can't expect to spam attack to win.

    Might speak to either heavy skill expression, or possible abusability of your mechanics. In my view from playing your demo, my instinct is heavy skill expression. And that's a great thing, though you just have to be careful that a player who struggles isn't left "stuck" with no way to keep doing fun things in your game.

    For most of the part, I managed to nail the intended experience for skilled players (which is, probably, my main target audience). Any possible tune down to the difficulty for a less-skilled player probably is going to be set in the lower difficulty setting.
    Why a point and click gameplay is called "Hack and Slash"?

    because generally that is what you are telling your character what to do by pointing and clicking...DIABLO is the main example here of course

    Probably because point and click was already taken by adventure games way back in the DOS days.

    @The Stranger It's not heresy. I'm going to be getting reWASD soon after trying out the trial so I can keep playing ArcheAge and Guild Wars 2 with a gamepad. Then I just need to figure out how to set up a gamepad for Path of Exile and I'll be set.

    @taarna23 I would make a status asking the same question to "adventure" games tbh, but "hack n slash" came first.
    Consider that you have been brainwashed all of these times. What would that be?

    That would be...

    A clean mind!

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHH!! B)

    ...Sorry. I'll show myself the door.

    Exactly, I don't know.
    Like, no matter how many times my brain is getting washed, it'll keep gathering some... dirty mind, if you catch my drift.
    I usually thought playing a game for hours is a waste of time, I should be using it for being productive. Then I choose not to play a game and still do nothing for hours.

    I actually feel productive watching anime/playing games, like EpicFILE said, it feels to me like obligation since I consider myself gamer/weeb :kaoswt2:

    I feel productive when watching anime/playing game because, that way, I increase my weeb/gamer status. There's very little anime/games/mangas that make me feel like Im enjoying them instead of making me feel bad because 'i only watched one episode of anime today, what a nonproductive day!'
    Plan: I'm gonna label "easy mode" as "normal mode" and an actual normal mode as "hard mode". So they will feel good on beating my game in "hard mode" :D
    I've gathered a lot of interesting numbers from my game tech demo. Dear my test subj- *ehm* I mean my testers, y'all are the hero.

    Well, at this point, there's a wide gap when I think about it again. Next time, it might be a bit narrower, considering your te- I mean, your guests had known what you've got in store.

    Also, remember:
    "Don't be hero!" -- a certain Aibou, around 2012, maybe.

    I always feel like a music without its main lead melody/vocal usually sounds better. And now, this also happens to some of my music.

    I think as long as the melody is not overly complicated, it's still fine too.
    Video games music is more of a constant background music, so there needs to be enough complexity (to make it not boring) but not overbearing as well. :D

    Depends on what you mean by complicated.
    Most of the time I don't think the lead is complicated, but if it's removed, I could listen to some hidden arrangement that was "blocked" by the melody. And the background arrangement usually has "no pattern", and a little bit "chaotic" (for lack of better words), but they somehow still sounds nice. Unlike melody that has a set of flow.

    No you're not, but you're also not allowed to make status updates directing people to your thread :p
    Maybe a premature bump would be allowed under those circumstances.
    Long time no see. I'm aiming a vertical slice / tech demo for my game featuring a series of boss battles this month. I hope I could get some testers.
    Tfw, revisiting ur own game and lose to the boss battle you design yourself because you forgot how you design it (at least I know it wont be too easy to defeat).

I just lost an hour plus of time to trying to modify the _battlefield sprite... when in reality MZ calls it _battleField ;_;

Even when debugging for the "undefined value", it looked exactly the same to my 20/60 eyesight.

I really prefer this_naming_convention rather than thisNamingConvention !!
hmm... I just solved one of the more annoying sideview battler problems in MV.. Passive States and Visual States can make it so when your character is in crisis HP, they don't go back to normal walk/wait when it's their turn. they stay in the crisis motion... neat.
Apparently all of LGBT reddit hates me. I posted a simple question and only got hate mail. What's the deal? The doompost was literally 6 months ago and I've changed my views since then and apologized.
