  • 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).

    Sometimes you gotta make a less odious version of it so that designers who insist on using one can use your version instead of a worse one! :guffaw:

    Gotta say, I'm extremely satisfied with MZ because of the plugin command only. This is essentially "editable editor". Kudos to the team :D

    An editable editor is nice, but an edible editor would be even better!! Nom nom nom...

    Seriously though, I agree. The Plugin Command event command is a great rework.

    It's literally the only thing that keeps me in MZ. I was supposed to stay in VXA :(

    Fun fact: Since I'm back to RM in late 2017 and started my project up to this day, my project folder is still named as "Project1".

    Goal for MZ? None... I'm still curious how to finish my VXA project and how it looks like when it actually finished. Which will take at least another two years. Coming late again to the party.

    Is MZ still going "beta" first like MV ? :D
    kinda wanna wait properly build for MZ before using it.

    so far the code is very more optimized and less bloated than MV so more stable.

    I'm actually considering doing a VXA game because I still miss scripting in ruby so much.
    Terrible UI design.
    Label = "Select your region".
    Actual meaning = "Select your language".
    DoubleX
    I've worked with 1 commercial Android app and it has this exact same design flaw, fortunately there doesn't seem to have much issues(maybe because in that case most targeting audience in a region do use the corresponding language most of the time)

    Well, From the perspective of an MMORPG, That would make sense. After playing so many MOBAs and MMORPGs, I'm kinda used to that phrase which normally means - "Select the region of your nearest server".
    TheoAllen
    TheoAllen
    @DoubleX the problem is that I'm used to English UI. I don't mind picking my region for whatever reason, just don't change the menu lol. It feels weird reading the language UI in my language.
    Unpopular opinion: I always consider my players as my guinea pig for my experiment (my game) :p
    Wavelength
    Wavelength
    I guess I'm the inverse to your obverse, because I always think of myself as the guinea pig in service to my players!! I work out all the kinks and unenjoyable dynamics on myself as I playtest, rework stuff, experiment, use myself as the guinea pig again, and finally serve up the polished product to my players. <3

    Honestly I think this is a popular opinion, just most devs aren't willing to admit it. :LZSwink:

    Replace players with streamers and then I shall relate fully.
    I can't stop looping this BGM while at work since I began to play PSO2. It just too good for mood booster.

    This clearly brings me that PTSD, runnin' and gunnin' dem pests has never been this traumatizing
    Considering if capping the damage taken by player to maximum at 80% maxhp damage is a good idea. So, no one hit kill even if it's 999999 damage.
    Dororo

    That should probably also mean you can just keep your HP above 80% to be sure being safe from boss final attack instead of creating countermeasures like shields, barriers and debuffs. I dunno.
    TheoAllen
    TheoAllen
    Or you could take a risk by going in less than 80% hp and put a shield and still survive :p

    pokemon has the skill 'false swipe' which will never kill the enemy. even if you hit 99999 it would leave them with 1hp. its a super important mechanic for when capturing hordes of pokemon for the rare stat ones :p
    The problem of making dungeon crawler game is that you missed the opportunity to use a lot of good Town and Field BGMs :(

    I agree with @bgillisp, and sometimes you don't even need to change the tempo or pitch! If you don't bias yourself with the name or "stated intention" of the piece, sometimes you can find a new and extremely effective use for it. Here are a couple of unintuitive picks I made for timeblazer that have had playtesters complimenting the music selection and asking if it's custom-made:
    Wavelength
    Wavelength
    * Urban Adventure Stage: "Battle - Hard Hitter"
    * Icy Adventure Stage: "Battle - Hearts on Fire" (lolol)
    * Coliseum Battle Sequence: "Divine Petals" (a fast but mystical theme)
    * Final Boss: "Normal Enemy"

    I like to clear my mind, turn a track on, close my eyes, and then let my mind wander wherever it wants. I focus on what emotions run through me as I listen to the music.
    TheoAllen
    TheoAllen
    Of course, I also don't bias myself with labels. I use field BGM as a checkpoint BGM and use battle BGM as dungeon BGM, and all. But when I said town BGM, I'm referring to a happy tune music which it has no place for that :guffaw:
    Are you the kind of person who prefers to overwrite an existing save file or always create a new save file when saving game progress?
    Vigorswig
    Out with the old, in with the new. the only problem is, now I wind up overwriting saves even when I don't want to.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    If I'm creating, new save files as much as possible. If I'm playing, I'll keep maybe 2 or 3 in case I want to go back further.

Fun fact: Digimon is an isekai :kaoswt2:
The problem with being a perfectionist is that you are never done with something.
Our Lore Wizard, Buttercup, just emailed me a draft of one of our in-game lore books, and it's one of my favorites so far. Her books are really bringing a vibrant history to Evergloom!

I've posted it under a spoiler tag called 'A study in 43rd Century Poetry' in our development thread!
Whoops, the corner of my map is as big as GALV's whole demo map xD
