    How do I get the default font?

    I trying to release a version of my game without RTP for the first time using this tutorial, but I can't figure out how to get the default font. I know I have to make a folder, but where do I find the file for the font so I can put it in that folder? Is it hiding in the resource manager or do I...

    Using Userbars?

    I'm probably posting this in the wrong place but I wasn't sure where. I see a lot of people on here that have userbars or stamps in their signatures that, when you click the image, it follows a link. How do you do that? I know how to turn text into a hyperlink, and I know how to put an image...

    Version numbers

    Not sure if this is worthy of a discussion or just a simple question, but how do version numbers even work? Like, Project A v1.5? I had a school friend playtest a project of mine and he mentioned the numbers I use are weird. Is there just an unspoken rule on how/when to change the numbers, or is...

    Show pictures while credits roll

    In my game, you rescue pet rats from the wilderness. I'm trying to have pictures of the rats fade in and out while the credits roll at the end.  The credits are just scrolling text set as a parallel process, so why won't the picture show up?

    Keeping file size down?

    I notice a lot of people will complain if a file size is too big because it will take a long time to download. How big is considered big? Also, how do you keep the size down? I know the more maps and such (especially parallax) the bigger it will be, but that's about all I know.

    Making a bridge to cross the river

    So I'm trying to make the player be able to pick up logs and take them over to the stream to build a bridge. I've got it so it checks to make sure you have logs in your inventory and all, but when it places the bridge, the player can't cross it. I've tried several different settings but this is...

    Pet Cage Sprite

    So I'm in need of a sprite for a small pet cage. I'll be using it for rats, but the cage is about the same for other small mammals. It is just going to sit in a character's room for them to interact with. It's for VX Ace.  Thank you and have a good day!

    Screen effect things?

    I don't actually know what they're called so I'm sure there's a million of them, but those screen effects where it makes things look like night-time and such? What are those called and where can I find them?

    Character Relations

    So, I'm sure we've all played games that made us wish we could spend more time with characters before they were swiftly set on the back burner for the story to move on. I have to wonder though, what is it that makes us want to see more of a character? Is it the mystery? Are they extremely...

    Storyboarded cutscenes? Yay or nay?

    So my latest project (as of yet untitled but the working name is Hunters) is going to be very story driven. I personally don't mind reading a block of text if I'm already engaged in what its telling me, but I know not everyone is. On the other end of the spectrum, there is only so much you can...

    Witch Hunter Sprites

    So in my project there's a group of people called Hunters, and they're people who track down and capture witches. It's modern day so and these witches have a variety of powers so they need to be prepared for anything. I sketched up a concept, but would anyone be willing to make a walking sprite...

    Victorian Castle tileset?

    So in my game, the protagonist finds himself in a Victorian style castle. Does anyone know of a nice tileset that would fit? Preferable gothic architecture because I'm a sucker for that.  Here are some examples for those who don't know

    Transgender/nonbinary Protagonists?

    I've been thinking for a while on how to kind of branch out and make my character not so cookie-cutter, as well as trying to be inclusive with representation, when I realized that games seem to be lacking characters that leave a realistic impression out being outside the gender binary. Of all...

    New at composing. Critiques?

    I've been in music for most of my life but only just started composing recently. I got this nice Linux program called LMMS (Linux Music Maker Software i think) that's been working well for me (and it's free). I started putting some of my stuff on sound cloud and would like some critiques if...

    Status Bars

    I'm making a dating sim, but I want it to be a little different. Instead of the one "romance" bar, I'm wanting 3 bars to show comfort, respect, and trust. I'm looking for something that will show these different status bars, like the health bar, when you talk to a character. I plan to...

    Cicero "Long ago, there lived a benevolent god. This god was worshipped by a small town in the forest. Every day, people from all over the town would take tributes to the god for good fortune, for this was the power the god possessed. One day, a goddess came to the town. 'I want to be...

    Larger graphics when talking?

    I'm pretty sure what I'm asking for has been made, but I have no idea what it is called or what to search for, so I apologize in advance. I'm looking for a script to show a larger graphic than the normal one. This sounds really confusing so here is a screenshot from the game Mad Father...

    Racially diverse characters?

    I my projects I tend to make the characters fit their environment and personality. A shut-in is usually very pale and thin, while a farmer is tanned and muscular. However, I often find myself (unintentionally, of course) making many of the characters caucasian. This may be because it is my own...

My only regret is the portal mirror effect is too subtle to show up in these GIFs. It probably just needs more sparkles. :LZSwink:
Microsoft: Hey, let's waste money advertising the Xbox Series X when nobody has any in stock, we don't seem to be making more, we aren't taking preorders and you can't get on a waiting list. BEST. IDEA. EVER.
So I'm practicing ITC with a spirit box, and decide to try to contact my deceased soulmate. It actually gave me multiple identifiers. Me, still a bit skeptical, asked aloud "Fine but does he still love me?" and the box spoke and printed the word "Forever" at the same time. Been a mess of tears since. :kaocry:
Been scratching away at my game and making progress, but just had a revelation. I'm working in full screen and adjusting all my pictures accordingly, but will they resize if someone's screen is smaller?? I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem later.
