  • Surprising nobody, it turns out "next Friday" for the next Jump into Javascript has become "possibly Sunday if you're lucky" XD

    You could always change the name, y'know, like Drag Out JavaScript? :wink:

    Just for that I'm going to rename it Jump into Javascript For Everyone Except ATT_Turan.

    Have you ever been playing an RM game, seen your name in the credits and been like "Oh yeah, I forgot I contributed something to this!"? XD

    Context: I was replaying The Way and noticed my name in the credits of episode 5, forgot I'd done battle animations for the new sword auras.

    I sometimes see myself in credit lists and then check all the screens of the game to see what of my stuff made it's way in there xD

    Since I mostly do tiles I notice my stuff way before the credits. But yeah, I've been surprised by it before. It's always interesting to see how people use what I've done, it's never how I expect.
    Pro tip to anyone looking for advice based on existing game mechanics: a lot of people reading your request won't have played the games you're talking about. Always assume your readers won't have, and explain what the mechanic actually *does* rather than just name-dropping the game. I see this a lot.

    Its also mathematically impossible to have played every RPG out there, just because there are so many. So it is common courtesy to explain the system.

    Also we have seen cases where how someone interpreted how one game did x and how someone else interpreted it were two totally different things. I saw a case ages ago with people not understanding how FFX really did turns and it got really bitter.

    I remember that, bgillisp.
    Could not for the life of me figure out how to implement the dual/triple techs in Touch the Stars in a player-friendly way. Was describing all the problems to my wife and just rubber-ducked a solution that should work brilliantly.
    Oh god, just watched HawkZombie's stream of my game and realised that *none* of the branching scenes work properly. One has no character graphic, one soft locks due to a passability issue, and one doesn't have its autorun set to the right trigger. I've got first prize in the bag, baby.

    The reason this happened despite me playtesting my game *multiple* times is that after umpteen playthroughs in their entirety I decided to save time by setting test points and doing it in sections.

    I had intended to do one more full playthrough before submitting but when it got to 3 hours before deadline it was getting to stupid o' clock in the morning and I had to drive my wife a town over for carpal tunnel surgery so we figured I'd rather be fresher and not risk crashing the car, and just submitted what I had.

    Unfortunately, while everything worked individually, there were transitions that weren't happening which I missed because I didn't get to test the transition, resulting in missing sprites.

    And the one scene with the passability lock I didn't get to test at all because I literally had to fire it in right before submitting, I wasn't even paying attention to the dialogue I was writing. :p
    And of course my game has a game-breaking bug at a critical point just before the gameplay part I put the most work into.

    :frown: Sorry to hear that. Is it a bug that happens no matter what you do? If not, a comment on the game website may help players bypass the bug.
    Trihan
    Trihan
    @SeaPhoenix there's no way around it unfortunately. I forgot to turn back on an autorun for a cutscene which makes it impossible to progress.

    Ugh, that's a shame. I saw the game on Itch and it looks really fun (great description of the game and the bug too, despite how you must be feeling about it). Have added it to my collection, and am looking forward to trying out the sandwich-making puzzle in the future.

    Can we upload our projects to itch in the standard deployed form (with the img, js folders etc. present) or do we need to package them into installers? Just wary of paid plugins being taken from my game when downloaded.
    Trihan
    Trihan
    I suspected as much. My main concern was people being able to jack paid plugins from the archive, but I suppose you just have to kind of take it on faith that they won't.

    Basic encryption will be enough to stop simple opportunists, but nothing you do will prevent a determined thief from breaking open your project and spiriting away your code and resources.

    And that is no longer your responsibillity. You arent putting it out there for ppl to mis-use it. That is on their heads
    First foray into fully custom Dragonbones animation has come with several lessons which have improved my understanding of how it works. Managed to make a fairly decent animation with the assets my wife made!
    You know, the part of the Touch the Stars contest I'm loving the most so far is how everyone who I know to be participating is so supportive of their fellow contestants. It's a really chill vibe despite the stakes involved and I always like seeing that in a game jam. Seeing all the progress being shared and the positive feedback coming from it is really heartwarming. Keep it up, everyone!
    This is the last character art content I'll be posting. Introducing Louise/Gemina, Jane/Tauria, Anna/Sagittaria and Tigerlily/Piscia, the Zodia Girls!

    Due to the amount of script and plugin work I have on right now, I'm putting Jump into Javascript on hold for the moment. When we come back, I'll do a lesson 0 which goes right back to the absolute basics of JS coding.

    It's not even for the contest IV, I have an absolute crapload of commission work to get through.

    Oh wait you mean I'm stopping teaching people Javascript so they can't make their games as fancy? XD yeah, you got me.

    Actually I didn't even think of that angle... Wow, I tip my hat to you, and I thought I was the villain here. :LZSwink:

    I was just joking that you're too busy because you're in the contest, glad to hear the commission business is thriving. Forgot who it was on Discord, but I gave him your name when he asked if I wanted to do commissioned coding. So someone else should be heading your way.
    Just uploaded the final episode of Slip into Ruby. It shouldn't feel as emotional as it does to say goodbye to the series, but I'm kinda gutted that it's done. Ah well, we still have plenty of Jump into Javascript to come!

    @ImaginaryVillain It's on the same level as the IGMC prizes (not sure if you were around for those?).
    Edit: Wait no, it isn't. Those had (at least) a total prize pool of $10,000.

    Interesting, though definitely before my time here. I joined Jun 21, 2019. Not going to lie if $10,000 was on the line... I'd instantly join a game jam. :LZSexcite: Still this one even kind of interests me a bit... All of my plugins I made for my other game are easily added to another. Hmm... Would be tough with my work schedule though. :kaoswt:

    Ha, if I cared about that I wouldn't be doing it either. I am going to fall so hilariously behind with everything doing this.
    What do you guys want to see for the new Jump into Javascript? A continuation of the rpg_objects, or would you prefer a "lesson 0" where I go back to the absolute basics of Javascript and cover the fundamentals of the language and its construction?
    Kes
    Kes
    With MZ the number of people wanting to know Javascript has increased a lot, so maybe a Lesson 0 would be highly welcomed. Though, ofc, I may be wrong.

    New version of my wife's art for Tundra's opening map. No new version of Katrina yet, but I think this looks awesome.1624062754755.png
    Finally working actively on Tundra! I'd like to share my wife's WIP art for the starting map and a rough draft of one of the later characters, Katrina. She's very eager to hear any feedback you might have!1623790662347.png

    My main advice would be since you use no outlines to use a bit stronger shading. Other then that it looks good
    Trihan
    Trihan
    @Finnuval I think I slightly misspoke when I said there won't be outlines; I meant the outlines won't be black, and she hasn't added those in yet. :)

    She says thank you very much to everyone who's commented so far for your feedback and suggestions. <3

    Ah in that case disregard what i said xD
