  • I can't recommend Juice FX enough for those who might be able to draw but not animate, like myself. epic lifesaver.
    hmm... my art doesn't lend itself to tilesets well. but I don't want all parallax. but I'm having no luck making tilesets...

    lol it's weird... I can draw characters all day to varying degrees. but maps? nope. not my thing. bad at drawing them, designing them, etc... combos are pretty good tho, just saying

    Yeah, maps are their own art. I have no visual inclination whatsoever, so they're pretty far from something I can do well. Pizza Combos ftw

    definitely... which is why I've been debating just drawing my own maps. I know how to in theory, but actually designing well thought out ones is another story. and yes, Pizza Combos always win lol
    Juice FX is actually pretty dang handy. with it, the guy in my pro pic, his cloak explodes in his battle intro. nifty.
    it feels so awesome that people seem to like the general direction of my rpg so fast. very motivating.
    hmm... I wanted something akin to fighting games in my game with QTE's... but apparently those are really hated in the rpg community... ouch lol

    Or, put another way... mayonnaise is great, and ice cream is great, but don't put mayonnaise on your ice cream!! Save it for the meals that allow the mayonnaise to bring out the flavor instead of clashing with it. :D

    I'm not sure who your target audience is, but I say make it the way YOU want it. Don't feel that just 'cause the rm community doesn't like means you shouldn't do it. Like, if your project ended up becoming crazy successful, I guarantee you there'd be a lot of people in the community who'd start using your idea.

    you both make good points. I actually have it implemented, tho I'm not terribly far so I could remove it. and I wanted to do it in a way that didn't punish players. they added to attacks as opposed to detracting. tho I've got a bit to think about before I go any further.
    FINALLY... a screenshot of my game that ISN'T in battle... grief. It only took from April to um... today

    Yeah, I'm trying to figure out how to make people stand out. I'm actually having a similar issue in battles right now with lines kinda blending together too much. I thought about giving characters an outline. but I'm not sure if that'd be good or distracting. and actually it is beat em up inspired in a sense. I wanted something pretty different.

    I don't think the sprites themselves need to be changed. I think just the background needs a thinner outline.

    hmm that's a good point actually. I figured I might've went overboard with the filter a bit. I'm realizing they should be a bit lighter on the backgrounds so the characters stand out more.
    today was very productive. got a walking animation done.I need to fix a frame or 2 tho. but overall... nice.
    the top secret boss in my game is actually a character from a comic book I never got made. but I feel it'd be a cool spot to drop her in.

    @The Mighty Palm Same, to be honest. I've made more than enough characters throughout my life to create new ones. At least, not new main characters.

    I just see it as a challenge to make new character. Although, having an old character re-purposed makes them almost like a new character.

    I definitely get that... I actually made a new character for this game... which is based on a different comic idea from 2002-03 lol... and grief... it wasn't easy really. but it was somewhat manageable because he's a combination of character's I don't plan on using, but still wanted in the game.
    it seems I can only do one of my talents at a time. stopped drawing for years to make music. now it's the exact opposite. drawing in front.

    You have to specialize or you'll be a jack of all trades, master of none.

    you've got quite the point. and my art has never been better as a result of one thing at a time.

    Looking nice, I like the stylization!
    One thing I think needs attention is the fact that the background makes it hard to see the turn HUD and the SV Battlers.
    Maybe with the animation it looks fine tho.
    zerobeat032
    zerobeat032
    yeah I've debated on how to filter the background because you're right lol, it is hard to see stuff. I'm probably going to turn down the filter on backgrounds for that purpose. especially since I purposely want battlers to pop.
    through the powers of QTE's and my love of fighting games, I effectively created a bard who puts in cheat codes instead of singing... lol
    I've learned a ton of little things about rpg maker mv in the last few weeks/month... and I'd like to make a video about some of it. hmm...
    I'm thinking about uploading some of my action sequences for mv to youtube... but first I need to figure out how to get rid of some lag...
    standardplayer
    standardplayer
    Oh MV and it's lag XD I know this is obvious, but during capture close EVERYTHING that isn't MV or your capture software. Make sure you don't have any system events like updates in waiting. Good luck, hope to see the video soon!
    zerobeat032
    zerobeat032
    crazy thing is... there was NO lag actually recording it. but every time I recorded the action sequence, there was lag in the video for some reason. and I kept recording it, because during gameplay it seemed fine, but every video had a bit of a hiccup on a certain part. MV.. thanks lol
    I get it... people want certain battle systems for maker engines... but they usually aren't realistic about it at all. and for free... bruh

    Listen, some of us just want to make OctoFinalChronoStardewPlatformTacticsABS for free. Is that so wrong? I suppose you'll be expecting people to pay for custom graphics next. ;)

    I remember a few years ago when one coder posted how much it would cost to make a custom engine. It was over $1000.

    I remember someone saying it'd be about that much to do the Final Fantasy 13 system. or at least high hundreds. and to me... that's understandable. honestly the only thing I can't do in my battle system that I wouldn't mind being able to do is oddly something like Final Fantasy 13 and change classes at on whim. tho I feel through common events you could do that anyway. but with actual menu representation.
    didn't even feel like going through all my content.... just told Youtube, "nope kids ain't welcome here..."

    I realized I had less stuff kids could watch than I first figured so this works out anyway. I'm not sure how they feel in particular about most fighting games but I didn't even wanna take that chance. and most of my channel was uploads of matches from fighting games.
    after seeing Giorno's speech to Bruno... I'm finally sold on his character. tho... I still don't think I'll like it as much as part 4

    I really enjoyed the first 3 parts. I didn't enjoy 4 as much because Jotaro was a cameo character but the villain in 4 was I think the best the series ever had. I don't know what happened between 4 and 5 but he lost his fruit loops after that.
    zerobeat032
    zerobeat032
    I actually like Jotaro more in part 4 for some reason. maybe because he's a bit less... something than he was in part 3. I oddly noticed none of friends liked him until towards the end of part 3. he had to grow on all of us. Kira was amazing tho. which might be why I like part 4 so much. part 5 tho... it's weird, even part 6 doesn't seem AS wacky.
    FleshToDust
    FleshToDust
    He's more of a thinker in part 4 but he's only got like 20 minutes of screen time through all of part 4. I didn't like him at the beginning of part 3 either. Especially how rude he was to his mother. I liked kira a lot as a villain. He was evil and they didn't try to make him grey. He's a psychopath and you see how whacky they think and dont try to justify stuff.
    as I figured... Terry is MAD fun in smash... and then I find out my online has expired lol. right when I finally get back to smash. grief...

Well, rats. Was really looking forward to trying out FPS Creator, but trying to install and set it up was pretty much impossible for my tiny brain to comprehend. So much for that, then.
Ah, home once more! I think I can safely work on my games now.
Let's hope power remains on for the day
