  • I started really hammering down on my game a year ago... annnnd I still haven't actually started yet. I think trying to do all these assets was a bad idea.

    yeah, I've been working on characters/battlers/UI/ and even some battlebacks

    Maybe you could get make a request on the forum to help you out with the things you don't want to do.

    that might be the best option at this point. Otherwise, I think I'm in over my head and this might really be too unrealistic given how little progress I've made in a year's time lol.
    can't use certain things with SRDude's Battle Status Customizer? make the gauges show it lol. I got the gauges to show Olivia's Boost Points and other stuff.
    so after much consideration, tilesets aren't gonna work. my art just doesn't match any of them. I've looked into backgrounds, but there just aren't enough... so I guess I'm stuck making my own. Charlie Brien says Argh

    Ouch, man...Best of luck to you with that.

    Also, it's more like "Aaugh!"

    haha you're right. it's been a while so I couldn't quite remember. and thanks. yeah, it's unfortunately gonna slow me down a bit but it was the original plan anyway before I realized what an undertaking it would be
    being an extreme introvert with massive anxiety... I forget this is really, REALLY frustrating for people who are the exact opposite. still, wait this out and stay home...
    when you realize that despite the product, you're job is considered essential because it's a warehouse/factory... stuck working through this to make pesticides...
    this took all day lol... this isn't even final. I mainly did it to see how it'd work. luckily I just have to make script changes to the actual scene.
    being as my game is based on an old comic book idea waaay back from 2001-03... I'm gonna make most of cutscenes comic panels.

    That sounds like a cool idea. You are only going to have that for important scenes that are predetermined? What would you do with scenes you improvised into the game? Some of the lore and story bits in my games were not originally planned.
    zerobeat032
    zerobeat032
    I haven't quite figured that out yet actually. It'd take time time to draw scenes just to have one character in them and another out... so probably just predetermined scenes.
    my city is going on a stay home order apparently as of Monday... because of reasons... I'm not too worried about not working. but my friends... grief, they could be in some trouble.

    Yup, Same here. Good thing we decided to stock up for the next 2 months on esstentials and Grocery, just in case.

    zerobeat032
    they're letting people leave for stuff like groceries and medicine, basically anything deemed as essential. otherwise we're being ordered to definitely stay in our homes.
    so some may have seen my art in here, but I make music too. or I have lol. it's been ages. but I want to again for my game. I just need drumkits again ugh...
    I'm starting to find myself too distracted in the last few days. I'm not getting much done. I A. need someway to focus and B. organize what I'm doing and when.
    when you realize a single plugin was chopping your game's framerate in half during battle... oof. yeah, the benefits of it weren't worth it. gotta ditch it.

    Yeah, my whole jerry-built battle system was itself a giant memory hole I couldn't fix, so I know how you feel.
    zerobeat032
    zerobeat032
    ouch, hate to hear that... I was wondering for the longest why my frame-rate in battle was always so terrible... and I deleted a few plugins I felt weren't completely necessary, and saw the rate shoot back up. I realized which one was the culprit and yeah, it's gotta stay gone unfortunately.
    ... finally decided on this look for battles. need to fix stuff, but it's a start.

    The outline does help (a lot). Still might want to make the grain little finer and/or less dense but definetly getting there xD
    zerobeat032
    zerobeat032
    It's actually not the grain this time lol... that's a different filter lol. I don't think I even have the grain on now haha. I wanted it to look softer overall, but still sketched. I'm determined to figure this out!
    Finnuval
    Finnuval
    Haha okay. Well whatever it is its Still a bit too coarse but you'll figure it out no doubt xD
    ... no one seems to have the right level of concern these days... they're either causing mass panic or acting like nothing is wrong. as someone who likes to stay middle grounded in this type of thing... this is aggravating.

    (part 2) They saw I was just a sad lonely kid that wanted friends. I wasn't the standoffish distrustful negative person I was trying so hard to pretend to be. I want friends more than ever. I regret taking that for granted. Be kind to each other, everybody. It can change lives. It's worth it, I promise.

    I have my moments where I've definitely pushed people away and isolated. tho for me, it's more of a "I need space to settle the storm in my head known as anxiety and depression"... I had a solid year of that in 2017. but I'm still here and doing way better. It's never too late to turn it around I feel. hopefully people will see you recognize their actions now and that you understand what's up.

    Yeah my big sister and my mum especially. Both are more relaxed around me. They know I can take criticism and I'm not just gonna break down and cry. They can speak to me like an adult now.
    when your own 2020 is personally going decently enough, but literally everything around you is going to the crapper...

    mushroom clouds = that's when I'll know, decent year personally or not... the bigger picture is clearly saying there's trouble
    trying to come up with a battle aesthetic that looks unique is... difficult. I can't quite pull off what I'm aiming for visually.

    Which is?

    essentially I'm trying to figure out something that more or less just shows pictures during attacks in the vain of comic book panels.
    faced with the following decisions. redo what I've drawn to pixel art to fit more resources or hope that making my resolution smaller helps the parallax process...
    I'm having an immensely hard time deciding on how to approach mapping because of the nature of my game. but my art clashes with all tilesets.

    You could always look for people who are willing to do a commission so it can better fit the style you want.

    I've thought about that. I just might. It'd have been easier had I done pixel art, but that's not my forte lol. odd that I can draw characters but not do pixel art haha.

    I am somewhat the same way, but my games do have sprites I made. The sprites don't look half bad. However, its my least favorite part of development.
    fighting game fans might really enjoy my game battle wise, and I feel non fighting fans might learn some stuff. thanks row system. pokes, neutral, and zoning time...

Making it a rule that I don't do any world building for my new game before the actual gameplay is concrete and working. I have 16 years of lore to work with anyway.
Cheesy power metal makes everything better. No matter what you do, you'll feel heroic doing it.
Starting to really like the first of my madness areas. I think the eyes looking at them really helps to sell the place. :LZSexcite:
Made idle animation for character. It first had only three frames but looked too different from walking animation and I had to draw five more.
MV and VX Ace both have good qualities.
