  • I managed to add a new feature without totally wrecking everything else I made. Am I getting better at this, or am I just lucky? Probably the latter.
    Step 1: Add another day, allow player to build rapport with villagers. Step 2: Make dialogue less cringe-worthy.

    Sending a VERY corrected version of my demo to the most awesome beta-testers in the world.

    That is basically what RPG Maker 3 somewhat is.

    I agree that I liked the first PS2 RPGMaker. The Chibi-3d was cute and looked like fun. The colors looked so muddy and washed out though :(


    RPGMaker 3 looked like it could have been cool... except it made me think more of a MMO than anything else. All that was missing was a clunky interface, annoying 14-year-old powergamers and an unnecessary crafting system.
    I just found a response to my drooling fanboy letter to the creator Katamari Damacy. It says "You're welcome :) " I'M NEVER WASHING THIS COMPUTER MONITOR AGAIN.
    Well, on the minus side, my project wasn't complete in time for the contest... but on the plus side, the contest drove me to come up with an idea that's really fun to work on.

    Ya win some, ya lose some, but at the least, it seems the pros outweigh the cons here. =)

    @Shin: Very true. Instead of squeezing our projects into a deadline, we can take the time to make these into the games we picture in our heads.


    @IceWulf: Indeed. Really good ideas that have traction are hard to come by. A contest I couldn't quite make, is a small price to pay for that.
    *Sigh* I misjudged the end date of the competition :( And it turns out that my project was a buggy mess... somehow a batch of 10 switches just disappeared. I must have hit ctrl+z too hard... maybe I'll try next contest :\
    Phew... waiting for the "beta test" results from my friends. Then I can do some more polishing after work today and get this thing uploaded and a thread made for it. I don't care if I place, I just want to finish on my feet :)

    Thanks, ya'll :)
    I think working on this project has made my brain a bit bigger. I can usually hear it rattling around when I move my head, but today it did way less of that.

    It may have learned to hold on to something inside your head cavity so it won't thrash about as much, but that still shows signs of an intelligence increase!

    another solution is to head to a Build-A-Bear and borrow a bunch of their stuffing.

    But then wouldn't the brain grow lazy? (And extra sleepy?)
    Speedrun of the cutscenes. 6 minutes. Speedrun of the Dungeon: 4:30. Speedrun of the Boss Dialogue & Battle. 3:30. Ending content: 3 minutes. Knowing I have enough conttent to participate in the contest once I fix the bugs? Priceless.
    Fixed a buggy set of events by just throwing everything I could think of at it. And the event works now. I just wish I knew which of those fixes actually solved it :\

    Haha, I had the same thing too, but with a bunch of conditional branches! I say if it doesn't slow down the game or anything, keep the fixed version there. You can experiment on a blank map if you want to fix the fix for future reference though.

    Good advice! I also found out about the "Debug" menu while running the game (F9). It really helps to see which switches are running and which ones didn't turn on for whatever reason.


    I know one of the things that probably helped was moving the events to a separate map. I think there may have been some parallel processes that were causing the event not to run. But I'll have the luxury of time and experimentation AFTER the contest deadline ;)
    If you find yourself behind a car that looks exactly like yours, always check the license plate. You probably haven't found your doppelganger, but it's the only way you can know for sure.

    One time someone with the same car color, make, model, and year was the same as mine and when I came out to the parking lot I tried to go in their car instead. Glad no one saw or they probably would've thought I was trying to break in. Finally after a minute I realized my car was two spaces away from that. Awkward moment.
    Playing a good game, only to have your groove interrupted by a random battle is uber-frustrating. It's like finally getting frisky with your significant other, but just when things start to get fun, you find out they 're wearing a chastity belt that's locked by a rubik's cube.

    Lol Scin >w< I think I'd quite like playing with a cube all night long rather than other things too, they're frustratingly addictive :3

    So a bad analogy for the rubik's fans out there :p Perhaps a better one is... Opening a box of pizza to find cockroaches scuttling about underneath! XD

    Touche' Reynard. I guess just more the surprise factor. There are much better metaphors. I was actually asking one of my friends what they would compare it to... and they said Customer Service. And... well, yeah. You never know when that call will roll in.
