    Game & Map Screenshots 10

    @Kvothe Those are door locations! I need to make some arrows and such to make it more obvious and less, well, neon.

    [RMMV] Random title screen?

    @Aloe Guvner That's perfect for what I wanted, thank you so much!!! :kaocry: @Kwerty Ah, yes to the first and no to the second and third? I know there are plugins out there for animated title screens, but I just wanted a different static title image when you open the game. Thank you though!!

    Sound ambience in your games

    Thank you all very much! I'm learning a lot from this thread. @TheoAllen your explanation really helped!! That makes a lot more sense now, especially about sound effects being a "signature." @gstv87 that is an incredibly cool analysis. The analogy he makes to words and sentences really...

    [RMMV] Random title screen?

    I would like to have the title screen of my game be random from a pool of images. The biggest gimmick of my game is things being just a little bit different every time you look at them, so it would really push that aesthetic forward. The problem is that I can't seem to find a way to event this...

    How would you go about subverting the player's expectations?

    Yeah, it's much easier to understand with firsthand experience and/or practice. Good luck~

    Sound ambience in your games

    @Milennin That makes sense, thank you! @Marquise* thank you! Yes, Deaf people can enjoy music- we play it very loud at parties, lol. But the neighbors don't usually like it very much. :kaoswt2: If it's loud enough for me to feel it, it's probably loud enough to be heard through the walls... I...

    How would you go about subverting the player's expectations?

    I think the game Eversion did a great job of the kind of subversion you're talking about- if you look it up, the title screen makes it look like your average cutesy platformer, if a bit more blindingly vivid than some of its peers. (It is not a cutesy platformer. It is a horror game. Also...

    Sound ambience in your games

    Thank you both for answering! :kaothx: @Milennin What is it that you like or other people dislike about the defaults? Or is it mostly like what Kes said, that they've just been used too much? @Kes About that games shouldn't depend on only sound for their effects- yes!! That's why I like RPG...

    Sound ambience in your games

    As a Deaf gamemaker and game player I tend to forget about the effect of sound on the game atmosphere. Horror games are never as scary somehow, and in many other games I find myself getting bored when friends swear it is all very interesting. So I think sound has to have a pretty big effect. So...

    October Goals and Progress Thread

    My goal for the month is to finish my main horror game project for Halloween! I'm so close, I have the maps and most of the mechanics done. It's a very small game. Granted it's also a game where I kill most of my boyfriends like one of those vintage movie widows with the fluffy robes and pearls...

    [RPGMV] modifying the inventory menu?

    @gstv87 Yeah, I was a little worried about that- but my map sizes are very small, and there's only the one common event running in this way. So when I tested it at least, it didn't seem to lag at all? If that changes I'll tweak it and see what I can do. I'm also planning on adding a prompt to...

    [RPGMV] modifying the inventory menu?

    Thank you all very much!!! You gave me some ideas with the picture sequence mentions- I'm going to test it out tonight. If I can't actually run events while the menu is open, I could maybe tweak my original idea a bit. Here's what I'm thinking: in the initial event that gives me the "glitched...

    Any ideas for getting productive or inspired on RPG maker developing?

    One thing that works for me (maybe not for everyone?) in staying productive is having two or three projects that I can switch between. They are all very different types of game, so if I'm tired of one of them I switch over to another and it's a whole different thing. If I'm in a horror mood, I...

    [RPGMV] modifying the inventory menu?

    My game is based on eldritch horror and "breaking" the in game universe- so far this has just been switching the player between distorted versions of a map with random chance events. But I wanted to do something a little more jarring. Is it possible to have an item or event break the inventory...

    Font check?

    Thank you so much!! I'll work on this tonight, see if I can get the mechanic working.

I've started working on rpg maker again, and I can see a lot of improvement from when I was 13. I still have a long way to go, but I'm proud that I've gotten this far.

I am using the Nightmare Land pack.
I just can't walk to the store for lunch without walking past people smoking. It not only smells bad, it's probably poisoning me. I'm afraid I'll eventually have to be hospitalized. I can't take another path because there's too much traffic and drivers in the plaza are reckless sometimes. I almost got run over once, even after looking both ways.
