    What drives you to make a game? If it's free, what's the point? If you charge for it, why?

    #1 thing is the nigh limitless control I have over the creation process.

    Rules Ideas That Don’t Deserve Their Own Thread

    @ATT_Turan For once, you read way too deep into that.

    Rules Ideas That Don’t Deserve Their Own Thread

    That is too big of a scope for one person to undertake...but if you wanna do that, it's your call.

    Mechanics you dislike

    Padded boss fights with the intention of making that part of the story feel more intense. Best example is a particular boss in FFXIV who I wont name, the dude has bloated HP and even with the best gear you can get, the fight takes 15~20 minutes.. Point and click world maps - I really hate those.

    RMMV How to remove hard cap on RMMV?

    There has been folks who abused the helpers, so you have to forgive some who are a bit on edge when they see what appears to be familiar behaviour. It is best to show everything containing the problem, so a solution can be extrapolated from that and not worry about, for example, someone stealing...

    JavaScript questions that don't deserve their own thread

    Pardon me, my brain is running at 35% and I should sleep, so I can only offer something a bit middle of the road for you: You could set up an array with each element being the IDs and parse them through a loop and use $gameVariables.value(array[index])(might be a cleaner way of doing that) and...

    Can't make a skill do minimum amount of damage.

    For your formula to work as is, you'd have to use a bigger multiplier, but this doesn't account for the possibility that you create a mob with a defense that'll still exceed the attacker's strength.

    Rpg story cliches you hate?

    Ah yes, getting blasted for 12,000 damage by Ultimate Attack and surviving it in battle, then moments later being killed by a dagger in a cutscene and now dead forever. Logic doesn't always play nice with RPGs for sure.

    RMMZ What's The Basic Of Making RPG Maker MZ plugins?

    Also make good use of what I consider to be the greatest thing about JS: The browser console. You don't need to setup IDEs/compilers to run JS code and you can see everything that might've gone wrong right there, rather than having to find out 'later'.

    What damage formulas do you use?

    Changed mine. Every point of magic attack is added to the damage, so no need to sacrifice points to get multipliers. If I want bigger numbers in the later levels, I can just use a bigger spell power. Magic defense caps at 51 % still. Also blah blah must account for mobs not having levels again...

    Advice you don't agree with?

    I figured it was something like that on my own. One day I thought "ya know, my names are literal and a bit longy, there's no way there would be a conflict. " Anyhow, I'm also not a fan of the no RTP thing and I also think it borderlines on being a misconception. I downloaded 4 tile assests...

    Suikoden V actually has a game breaking bug at the last dungeon where one of the pillars will not raise even if you step on the right pad. There's no way out either.

    What damage formulas do you use?

    Yes you're right, that's a typo and should be a.mat. Admittedly I wrote that while half awake.

    What damage formulas do you use?

    After so long, I've come up with a formula for base spell damage. ((mag * spellTier) + level) * (spellPower / 4) spellTier = e.g. Ice I, Ice II, Ice III... Mag x 1, 2, 3, etc. Weapon damage, resistances, bonuses not accounted for. The whole thing was built around keeping a tier 1 spell's...

    Some people are still using 2003. The thing is there's more than one engine, so it really boils down to what engine works for you.

    Rpg story cliches you hate?

    Also Chrono Cross' true last boss ain't the last boss. The 'last boss' was more or less a big nod to Chrono Trigger. Infinite Undiscovery made all kinds of no sense to me and is a good example of a bad guy(Leonid) is actually minion of bigger bad guy who mad that his people ban hammered him. It...

    Rpg story cliches you hate?

    So you appreciate that a character has a purpose and said purpose is fleshed out and stays that way and is not hijacked by other characters that have absolutely no relevancy to the story other than "we need a build up to the last boss". Oh you would not like Granstream Saga, or Thousand Arms...

    Rpg story cliches you hate?

    Grandia III did something I didn't expect and as a result has the best ending I've ever seen from an RPG. More often than not the world is saved and they're the biggest deal of all deals but nothing really special happens. . .

    What are the absolute best stealth games?

    Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven is the epitome of stealth.

Where would you go if you're looking to hire someone on here? I'm in need of a writer to take my story concept and turn it into npcs/dialog in my game.
Evening humans! How goes the game make?
The anime characters we saw 20 years ago,
still have the same age when we see them now.
Somehow it's strange but also beautiful.
It's like no matter how much we change,
there's certain part of ourselves we can reconnect to when we see them again.
Took a long, long time, way longer than it should to be honest...but I've finally finished the big content update to my demo!
