    RMMV Leader of None (Sci-fi Political Sim)

    I'm thinking of creating a political game where you've just been elected president of the solar system federation and have to remain in power over the course of your ten-year term. Any ideas for mechanics? Here's what I've got so far: - Player automatically loses if a majority of the solar...

    TypeError Issue

    A TypeError (image four and five) is occurring about half the time I play a certain battle. The battle is troop 48 (image six), and begins when the top enemy is attacked, triggering troop 48's battle event (image six) and summoning troop 14 (image seven). Does anyone know why this is happening...

    Player Agency

    How would you add player choice to your game, particularly outside of dialogue? For example, let's say there's a monster who's terrorising a village. In most games you'd have to fight it, but the developer could also give the players the choice to poison it's food, or tame the monster, or join...

    Making Reputation Locked Equipment

    I want to make some equipment in my game useable only if you have a positive or negative reputation, which is tracked with a variable. Does anyone know how to do this? Preferably any equipped equipment would unequip itself as well if your party's reputation suddenly switched from being positive...

    Common Events Items and Equipment

    How do you use common events for your items and equipment? I have items that teleport you to the centre of town and let you automatically escape battles, among other things. How about you?

    How do you incorporate committing crimes into your game? Do you have pickpocketing? Theft? Murder? Something else? And how did you implement it?

    Reputation System Uses

    I've created a reputation system for my game where villainous actions decrease your rep and heroic actions increase it. Any ideas on what I should do with that? At the moment some quests are only available with a positive/negative influence and some npcs won't talk to you if your rep is bad.

    Upgrading Equipment Skills

    Skills, in my game, are provided by equipment: if you equip an axe, for example, you can use the skills 'furious attack' and 'execute', while equipping a pistol would let you use 'quickdraw' and 'pot shot.' What I want to do now is make it so that using a skill provided by a piece of equipment...

    Frozen screen transfer

    I used to be able to transfer between these maps, but now it freezes on some maps upon transfer (it looks like I've moved a space from the edge, the transferring between maps in my game sends you one space away.) I can't open the main menu either, but I can move the cursor. What's happened?

    Missing files during mac deployment

    My game (mainly) works when I test it on my own mac, but when I deployed it for mac and airdropped it to a friend's mac the Saint4 SE couldn't be found and the wuxing mini game (which uses its own files) couldn't be played. I checked the project files and they all seem to be there. Any ideas...

    Switch Freezing

    I downloaded a bunch of plugins and now some switches that previously worked cause the game to freeze. It's at the point when your ship has been sabotaged and you talk to the mayor again, about half an hour into the game. Does anyone know what's causing it? I also get lag on the Rice Road Forest...

Getting back into the thick of work on Untold Story and it feels great to be back. I'm gonna take what I learned from the Game Jam and try and get some serious work done for the rest of 2021.
The "docs" are honestly soo frustrating. Eg. positionType : "Returns the current position type of the message window." Yes, great. could you please also tell me if 0 was bottom or top, so i don't have to start a playtest to see, because i keep forgetting it all the time, and what are the docs even for, if not that? (it's top btw...)

Here's the combat sprite of Azrael one of the main characters of our game,
with and without weapon.
Hope it's good.
The one thing I've always struggled with is creating a story, it halts every single project I've ever worked on. We must be in the twilight zone because I've actually come up with a plot, from beginning to end (it kinda wrote itself). I may very well be on my way to creating my first proper little game, yay!
