    Aaaaand I moved it to the general lounge, since it's not game-design specific :lol:

    *staff volleyball*

    Anyway, to keep on topic ... Yes, I'm very excited! I managed to shuffle finances around and pre-ordered for the discount and lovely bonuses.

    Today seemed to be longer than usual.

    I've been using RPGM since XP when I was young, and Ace looks incredible. :D

    I'm definitely excited, but in a way I'm blessed with a curse. I have to have back surgery done on March 23 and I'll be on FMLA from my job for about 6 weeks. While I'm sure I'll be in pain and will have to wear a neck brace during this time, I'm determined not to let it interfere with my enjoyment of VXA. I mean, 6 weeks of no work, spouse out of the house to work, my 2 year in daycare? It's almost like a wish come true, minus the back surgery, doctor/insurance bills, and prescribed drugs of course...

    Okay, the prescribed drugs can stay.

    Hope your surgury goes good so you can get plenty of VXA time in :) Man, minus the back surgury that sounds like a dream come true!

    I am really excited to get my grubby hands on VXA. I don't know much about the rpg maker DS graphics so I really want to comb through those. I have been working on my documentation for my project for weeks, and it has seen a lot of revisions already, tonight is going to be a long one... do we know what the ETA is on the download availablity? Also, hope the servers don't get bombarded :o

    Lucky for me (or is it unlucky), I'll be busy with work and doctor appts tomorrow, so won't have a chance to dl until later in the afternoon. Hopefully the servers won't be as jammed by then.

    From what I saw of the Trial, yes. Though I was also forcing things in the way that I wanted them. I'm not sure if the generator will just pick up on there being more files, though I would suspect some sort of config file, or TOC file that would tell it what images to map to which sections of the generator so you could randomize. Simply renaming the files in the folder that was being searched produced the right results to have my images in there. You still need good skills as an artist, but you can release Mouth files and Nose Files, etc. The other thing that becomes important is facing. If people make different head shapes for different facings that will cause you to need to keep track of what you are working with. or their eyes will not be on properly and you will have a person with their face on the left side... :p

    Thanks for clearing that up. Just to confirm again, as I browsed a bit further through the blogs I saw that you could indeed add your own components. "Another cool feature of the character generator is that if you follow the correct naming scheme, you can add your own component pieces!"

    Yep, you can add them, I'll put up the naming scheme to make pieces match up a bit after launch, as soon as I have time to do anything other than run around like crazy validating people. :p (I'll probably put it on the blog.)

    Some of you keep talking about documentation that you have ready. What do you mean by documentation?

    Now, I'll be able to use a both the default tileset and the Japanese Tileset at the same time without having to use a tileswap tool/script. Can't wait to see all the other features that this program will have to offer.

    I'm sooooo excited I might burst! Does anybody actually know what time folks who pre-ordered can expect their download links in their inbox? and what time zone that release time is in? :)

    It is going to be a long, LONG night for me. Sadly, I have to work tomorrow, so I will not get to play on this until after I get home. Even sadder, I'm going to be getting far less sleep than usual because of this. It looks to be a fair tradeoff though.

    Barring any technical issues, we're hoping to drop ace to all the people who pre-ordered at 12:01 AM (EST) on the 14th.

    w00t!! In playing with the Eng Trans Trial I ran into issues figuring out how to rename the head.png in the mini folder so I could select them as desired. Everything else felt common sense and worked awesomely. I was going to post my findings, but I wouldn't want to steal your thunder :) I hope to develop some video tutorials as I learn things. =^_^= CAN'T WAIT!!! 10:01 pm my time can't come soon enough!

    You can post whatever you like, to be honest, you might know more about it than I do. (I know vaguely how it works from some of the beta testers telling me, I haven't actually tried it myself.
