  • Well, happy new year everyone! I think I will release something in RM this year. I got me my shiny new MZ, and it's been like a decade for the forum? Huh. Or maybe just this version? Does anyone remember how long this forum's been around?

    Admin, Archeia, and Touchfuzzy's profiles say they've been here since February '12. From posts I've seen in the past, it sounds like there was another site/platform before this though.

    RPGMakerVXAce.net was the predecessor. It will indeed be 10 years in February.
    Yay! I finally got MZ! Now I'm part of the club! I mean I knew getting it was inevitable cause I'm RM fanboy. Might as well be this year. Eventhough, to be honest, it's not that much different from MV. Now that I spent money on it, I got an excuse to RM again. Happy Holidays everyone!
    Why wasn't there a Christmas Steam sale this year? It's so strange. They've always had one. Is it bad to do sales near Christmas these days?
    Reading about metaverses recently. I can totally imagine myself in the future, logging in with VR glasses to a virtual beach villa sitting in a virtual chair, with a virtual laptop facing the sea...coding 16-bit RM.

    all while being inspected by a hundred third parties, over a system purposely built for such end.
    .....at least in the modern internet, they have to circumvent a few regulations.

    Yeah. Let's hope they get those blockchains working for real so it's true Web 3.0 without the big techs. Which raises another question. I wonder if people will pay for NFT rpg maker games. Hey, it's possible.
    After looking at my profile, I realized I've been on this forum for nearly NINE years. 1. Damn I'm old. 2. Appreciate the forum being there for us that long! 3. I like how you get annual badges at GameJolt for every year. I've only got 6 over there. Just saying. XD

    Well, just put in 10 pages of paperwork to apply for one, that will narrow the amount down xD "Write an essay about what you did for the community in those years, minimum 10000 words"

    can I write hello world or a single sentence answering the question using a loop to get past that requirement?

    At GameJolt the system adds it for you automatically. They have a unique badge for every year. I just think it's a good idea. But maybe this forum doesn't have that kind of script. Oh well.
    Man, so conflicted. MZ is 35% off. I really should get it this time I think. But what if there's bigger discounts during Thanksgiving and Christmas...

    Buy now.
    If it gets a cheaper discount, refund.
    Then buy again.

    I'm planning to get it with Bundle S during the next Steam-wide sale. Right now, not everything in Bundle S is discounted, but once the discounts hit, I'm finally making the leap.

    Don't you get an even better discount if you already own MV?

    I don't understand how I can hate cleaning in RL, but I can spend hours enjoying cleaning virtual houses in House Flipper. What the? Why?!

    Clicking wont get you dirty, hungry, tired and sore i guess :kaoswt2:

    And you can stop at anytime and shut down the game. If you do that IRL the mess is still there. Always watching. Always judging you. o____o

    Virtual cleaning seems more like sorting to me. I can also happily alphabetize books or files for hours. It could also be similar to how it's way more interesting to clean someone else's house than cleaning your own.
    I suddenly feel like making a game for little kids: a pointless sandbox of cute animals, silly collectibles, and random mini games.
    Sometimes it pays to play terrible games just to learn what NOT to do.

    Perhaps I could send you my game when it is finished?

    Thanks for the offer guys, but I am not a good reviewer. There are however plenty of very good (and entertaining) reviewers who do RM, for example search "d757gaming" on youtube. He did a great job reviewing my RM jam game Isekai Champions.
    I'm so glad that WOT trailer is out as it's my fav series. I'm also so scared they'll mess it up for the same reason. Well, at least Brandon's a consultant. It might work out.

    I'm not getting my hopes up, books were better than movies even when movies used to be generally good, these days...yeah. It'd be nice but I fully expect a trainwreak wearing a Robert Jordan skinsuit to preach modern political dogma from rather than a reasonably faithful adaptation.

    I hope it doesn't go the way of Shannara TV: Excellent set pieces, beautiful people, terribly boring. I know some people liked it, but I just couldn't get into it like I did the books. Maybe it's the dialogue? I dunno, it's hard to say why. It makes you truly appreciate what they did with GOT. I actually found the books pretty dull: the TV series brought it to life.
    I'm familiar with MZ thanks to jam now. I say it's a better working and looking MV. Lots of plugins too and FOSSIL helps alot. It's not bad.

    Agreed. I'll be diving deeper into it on the next project. Still a few to finish in MV first though.
    Alright, I submitted. I think it went through. Honestly, my game suxxxxxxx.... I mean I think the idea is good, but just didn't have enough time to pull it off. Oh well, that was the best I could do. Now I'm gonna go to sleep. Maybe in the next 2 weeks I'll do a fixed up non-contest version.

    Congratulations on finish it!
    Finishing a game for a jam is always a challenge. Be proud of yourself ^^

    @Eliaquim btw your Map Reveal plugin is a major part of the game. It's pretty awesome! Thanks for making it! I'll be looking at your other plugins too for other games.
    Oh man, 16 hours straight crunching MZ. Two days in a row. Why did I decide to join this contest again? XD Oh man, final sprint, it'll be far from perfect. It is what it is.
    I wonder if I should just crank out a short game with 100% RTP for the contest. No custom graphics or music. Haven't done that in a long time.

    They have that new contest. Such a project would be perfect for it since the whole point of the contest is to show that you don't have to be able to work all kinds of technical magic to make a great game.

    Yeah! Totally! I think that'd make for a good exercise--and I'm looking to do something similar as I work my way towards ramping up to a bigger project, just to put some things in context.
    Whew, just finished a whirlwind of deadlines. Finally a tiny break. You know...I should go update my 2020 banner now.

So technically I just ate sausages that were a year old. Use by date was 12/27/2021. But since those dates are just guesses with no scientific reasoning behind them I'll prolly be fine. Guess I know soon if I'm praying to the Porcelain God.
People laughed at me when I said that Activision Blizzard would get bought up by another company if they didn't fire their execs. Now their value has dipped so much Microsoft is willing to buy the company, likely followed by some heavy terminations if they want to purify the current toxic image of Activision Blizzard.

ok hear me out here: if the only way my brain can describe things is like with colors is this normal? Like I've described a smell as "dark green and fuzzy" and a taste as "dark blue" like is this a normal thing that happens to people or am I just going insane?? o.0
