    Adding Balloons to Important Sprites

    One feature that I've seen commonly requested is being able to add balloons over characters so that you know they have a quest to give you. Some suggest using parallel processes to do that, but as we know many parallel processes can also slow your game down, and I've heard of reports of players...

    Resource Manager Issues

    The resource manager in MZ seems to be bugged. If I go to select import on it for BGM's it crashes right then and there as it apparently can't handle loading all of the BGMs that came with MZ. If I try to go to the DLC to add a BGM it hangs a very long time (5+ minutes) or never loads the...

    DataManager.save_game vs DataManager.save_game_without_rescue

Any idea why they used the without_rescue version? And what is the advantage to using one vs the other?

1st iteration on castle interior in Tiled.
I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.
The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
