  • Sometimes when I listen to a music. I want to create a scene just so that I could put a music on the scene

    I do that i my mind when I listen to classical music. I think it is because I was raised with Peter and the Wolf and Sleigh Ride (before lyrics) and other story-telling music.

    I get that too at times. Some of my scenes get inspired when I hear a very nice tune.
    Meanwhile, I'm here never see a snow with my own naked eyes.
    It's been like a week (or 2) spending my time proof reading cutscenes dialogue. Cz I'm suck at writing. The plot isn't moving forward _:3

    I've been hiatus from actually writing a story since my standard went up (and found out my story works full of cringeys). I used to enjoy write random story when I was young, so I kinda missed those times :')

    When designing a game, it never hurts to write a short story across 5 pages (front and back) to help get you back into. A little bit of practice helps. :D Even if writing game dialogue and writing stories is different. Dialogue for both is similar :D

    Last game I made was no actual story, just a dialogue to fill the emptiness without actual goal / context. So it was easy enough because I was focusing on the battle itself.

    So yeah, you could say that im exercising now. If ppl made small game for exercise of using the tool, I'm more like for writing :D

    tfw comparing dialogues between a prequel project and sequel project. And found some major inconsistency between those two _:3

    i might end up updating the prequel project instead because the dialogues were made hastily. And I found a better way for the character directions in sequel project like as their relationship and things

    Woah!!! You developed a sequel and prequel at the same time :o #respect

    heh, the prequel was already released like 2-3 years ago lol
    Tfw, got carried away of making a long dialogue. Lol man, I hate info dump in a game, but I'm dumping info myself in my game _:3
    Ever feels like to redraw everything in your game because your drawing skill just improved?
    I feel like losing my hand after my mouse broke, and now using a touch pad. Gonna buy a new one I guess

    I know how it feels. :(
    Using a touch pad is challenging, especially when you are making maps

    I got stuck with a touch pad for so long that the mouse is out of my control now ^^
    The perk of can do script is you start looking at the game script first before thinking if it could be implemented by default editor

    I disagree here. I consider engine if it's something simple.
    TheoAllen
    TheoAllen
    Something obvious may still keep using the engine. But when I stumbled upon something, instead of trying a workaround on the engine side solution, I'd just start to script that
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Yeah. I use engine for simple changes. For even simpler ones I use the editor. I only create plugins for when I'm creating something that is bigger and not part of the engine.
    How do you come up with an idea for the name of your monsters in game?

    @Matseb2611 It'll be great fun until you reach the Nightmare Floor of Clogging Zombies.
    And I'll be able to use Spanish Guitar musics for this one! ;)

    Wasn't sure what clogging style was so had to look it up. Looks awesome. Is it like tap dancing then?
    All this is starting to remind me of Crypt of the Necrodancer game. :p
    starlight dream
    starlight dream
    Yeah, it's all been done already! :p Clogging is like tap dancing but noisier and with less moves and less world tours LOL
    Who agree with me that mapping is the boring phase in developing _:3

    I go through phases tbh. Most of the time I hate mapping, I'd rather be sorting out the database, developing the story. What I tend to do is do a rough design of my map n game then let a mapper give it some much TLC because then the map still looks the way I want it to but better lol.

    Yeah now im just sketching up my map without aesthetic and gonna touch it later lmao

    I think it's very boring, like you, that's why I use sample maps often. @Tai_MT I actually like doing database work, especially skills.
    Considering to put my battle mechanic (with demo) in idea & prototype hmm... but that wont be a surprise anymore :o

    Implementing a skill level system. And each skill has unique improvement (means different script to edit), i feel like im gonna kms _:3

    But to be honest though, I'm not sure which one is easier. Skill copy might be easier to track, but it's hassle when you want to edit the base skill so that it affects all the other skills

    In other hand, script might also hard to track because you might forgot which part u've edited and what effect the skill gives u at a certain level lol.

    No matter which way you go, it's a hassle. Script just saves you a lot more space. It's why I say it's more efficient. :D I just prefer my way since I don't have to mess with yet another script/plugin and I know I won't use 1400 extra slots for enemy skills.

    I actually just set up the base stats of each skill and then balance my game around that. I found it easier.

    Btw Spellblade is such a cool class, it's a shame it's usually so bad in most games...

    wat? how come it's bad in most of games? useless? hard to play? I remember I played a game using spellblade class, and I liked it. It was a mix between agi and mage, which usually that's my playstyle
