    RMMZ Using setTimeOut not picking up variables?

    I'm trying to use setTimeOut to do a countdown to change an actors face after a short period. It seems to work if I put in stuff that isn't a variable, for instance if the actor id is 1 - it will work for 1, when I try to make an actor name as a variable I'm greeted with this. This is the bit...

    RMMZ Working on a "Battle Pop up" system - and hoping for some feedback.

    Hi, so I hope this is the right place to talk and post about this - I'm really not sure if it's here or the Plugin's in development. (if you think it's better off there please move it and sorry in advance.) I'm working on a system - it uses the show picture command to have an image of the...

    Sprite Effects No Longer Working for Actors. Need help.

    Hello, my stomach is literally sick from trying to fix it and not being able to step back. But I was recreating a script that I had because I felt it got too complicated. And one of the things on that script, was giving the players sprites "sprite effects" looted from the enemy sprite scripts...

    Can you use Alias's in Javascript?

    Hello, I'm kind of new to Javascript - and in the process of trying to recreate some scripts I made for Ace from MV. I was curious if you could use "Alias" like you can in Ruby script to sort of add code to a function without overwriting it?

    How do you "pick up the pieces" when getting burnt out on making a game?

    Hi - been awhile since I posted here, but I've been trying to get back into making a game (Using Ace). And It's just been kind of hard getting back into routine. I had talked to my friends about putting aside an hour each day to work on the games art/story/gameplay - and maybe dropping some...

    Aliasing Use_Item causing delay?

    Hello, I'm trying to simplify some scripts and make them more compatible. I have this script for playing sprite effects, and just cast animations - but the only way I get it to work as I want it too, is by overwriting the Use_Item call. If I try to have the animations called/played through an...

    Need help getting a custom warp tile working properly?

    Hi, been toying around with using event names to have events - and one thing I've been using that to develop is a Game_Event script where the player touching an Event called WarpA - would warp the player to point WarpB, and vice-versa. I'm having trouble though with getting the player to warp...

    How to stop overthinking and stop spooking yourself?

    Hi - I wanted to try to make a few games before I commit to a super long term project, but I'm having a lot of trouble with overthinking things. Basically I'm having this issue of using an idea or gimmick, or even character, and then never being allowed to re-use them again. So I do have a few...

    Script Naming and Back Up procedures?

    Hello - so a while back I had to end up redoing a bunch of scripts after an error, due to poor naming, and ordering. It actually wasn't a bad thing because I managed to rebuild them faster and much more effective than last time. But to save myself further heartache - I did want to learn what...

    How to build character bases and use them?

    Hey - I'm struggling kind of hard with creating the tiny overworld sprites while keeping them consistent. So I was looking at the resource manager and how it can just has a base and draws the clothes over it. I was wondering how I would start doing that for myself? Like starting from scratch...

    How do you guys feel about re-using tiles for games?

    Been taking some time to work on tiling - and part of me was thinking of going back to a game I uploaded months ago and use the new tiles instead of the default ones (due to styles mismatching between over world chars and the default tile set) - but at the same time I would like to try some...

    Do you guys prefer writing one huge script or multiple smaller ones?

    So lately, I've been working on this "battle system" and it was going pretty well. Though lately I've been getting into a habit of trying to take certain parts of the script - and editing them so they're all independent of each other. So now I can kind of mix and match them safety if I need...

    Any tips on how to make Attack Effects look nicer?

    Hi - I'm trying to make attack effects for my game, but I'm having some trouble getting them to look nice? I don't really have much trouble getting them to look nice as a gif - but as far as I know, there's no way to convert a gif to an attack animation - so if anyone has some pointers or good...

    Getting icons to display next to actor/battler names?

    Hi - I was trying to get icons to appear after a characters name, just by putting "\i[x]" at the end of the name, but it doesn't seem to work at all for status menu's only battle logs. So I was wondering if anyone had, or knew how to edit the scripts so that either icons can appear next to a...

    Hi - I'm using Victor's passive states, and I've been having some trouble involving enemies. One of the functions of the script is that you can have a skill give a character state(s) when a certain condition is met defined by a note tag on the skill, and I found it as a nice way to handle...

How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
so like with the whole 'familiarity breeds contempt thingy', how are you supposed to tell if your title screen/battle music gets really tedious after a few dozen plays or if you're just personally hella sick of it?
