Alright, so lets say that I have 9 tiles arranged in a 3x3 pattern. Each of these tiles has 3 possible variations, lets say they can be either Red, Blue, or Green. It's easy for me to find out how many combinations there are, its simply 39 or 19,683 possible combinations. Now, lets say...
2. Damage Formula Discussion?

5. Opinion requested: System for ACC missing, hitting, and critting.

We all know that the default Ace system of 5% EVA and 95% HIT is bad game design. (Missing is frustrating to players. See this blog post, the removal of dodge from LoL, etc.) But here's a question: I'm using a multiplicatively balanced damage system, such as seen in pokemon. (The basic formula...
6. Balancing stats mathematically?

I'm not exactly sure if I posted this in the right section or if it should have been in game mechanics design...sorry if I do post this in the wrong section... ^^" So I was thinking if there is a way for stats to increase in a certain way, or if there is a sort of mathematical system where you...

10. Finding area (As in, size)

Okay, I'm trying to figure out how to find the area of a map (Width * Height) so I can create an image to act as a pseudo lighting thing (Id est, the room is dark, but light comes in through the windows and other light fixtures). I know that the Width and Height of a single tile is 32x32, but I...

So I realized that I really just don't have enough time to make videos. However I don't mind clicking stream and just letting people watch me work on my game. I don't really have a good microphone... okay it's a \$20 headset so it's terrible, and I have no web cam. So the stream would largely be royalty free music and me working, with minor interaction. I guess the question is, would that actually interest anybody?
Child base test two, flappin' their arms like it's VX Ace.
