- There are random times the game thinks I have a button pressed. It'll skip me through dialogue, it'll make my character walk left, or it will sort through the inventory - all the while I haven't pressed a single thing. It appears completely random. I don't have any controllers plugged in. I think it happens after I've pressed a button myself, although it has also happened when I simply booted up the game again, and he started walking left.
I have had a few reports of this and even saw it happen on a stream. My only guess is that the game thinks there's a button pressed.
The only way I managed to see the error happening here was to hold the mouse button down and press alt+tab, then release the button. This caused the game to think the mouse was still pressed. I've changed the game to completely ignore any mouse clicks now (even though I didn't use the mouse for anything, the clicks were still being processed and could be used to skip conversations)

- Not being able to walk over crops, you're going to annoy everyone if you leave that in :x
Yeah, I heard a lot about this. I will have to change it. I didn't do it yet because I had placed all small crops on a separate layer for faster renderization and I need to change that.

- No mouse support :(
It will come. Maybe in a month or two.

- No storage to place my items in. I had to resort to dumping them on the floor in my house.
It's in the works. And items dumped on the floor won't disappear.

- I really dislike that going indoors means the screen tints darker. I find it depressing, when the game should otherwise feel cheerful and bright.
I've fixed the tint color.

- Actually a bigger issue I have with changing from Rural Farm Tiles to Pixel Myth is that everything is darker and moodier, and I honestly feel there's too much dirt in the maps that give everything a gloomier feel. There's no cheerful brick roads and the houses aren't colourful either - but that's because you're limited to the Pixel Myth tileset. I think it's mostly due to mapping not being your strongest point, because I know I've mapped with Pixel Myth before and I can get cheerful combinations.
@KanaX has been telling me this since forever. My plan is to animate everything I can and add more wild animals and travelers in town, so it will look more alive.

- A map in the main menu would be nice, I'm still getting lost at day 8.
It will have a map one day, but since the world map is not finished yet I would have to update it everytime I change anything.

- Getting the hammer was way more annoying than it should be, since I still hadn't found it by day 7, even though I was exploring a lot in the mountains. Getting the sickle was fine though, that was fun.
- Still don't know where the fishing rod is D:
- I think time moves too fast, I feel rushed when exploring. This is also why it took me 7 days to find the hammer in the mountains because time was simply going by too fast.
And I used to be worried that people would find all tools in the first day...
I've increased the day length to 20 minutes (from 14.4 minutes before).
The fishing rod is accessible only after day 6.

- While I liked the quests, completing them felt lackluster with no reward. Give 5 turnips to this one guy, who says "ok thanks" and that's it. Perhaps, instead of hiding all the tools away from the player, the player gets all the basic tools from the start, but they'll have to pay back some of the villagers that gifted these tools. Kind of like how you have to pay for your house in Animal Crossing, except this time you have to pay your debt to the villagers for your tools. When everything is paid off, you get the option to improve them.
I've improved this on my last update.

- NPC schedules felt lackluster, the world felt empty. I was very surprised to see three of them be outside at one point - since usually I don't see anyone. I'm guessing you don't have that many schedules evented yet? Are there more NPCs to come?
Devin, Benjamin, Serge, Viktor, Raphael and Annie already have a schedule for the whole day (still repeating the same one everyday).
Richard, Phi and Chloe have incomplete schedules.
The others only stay in their current positions, but I'll finish one whole schedule for each this week.

Ah right, you can't really make a map if everything is still subject to change.

Nice to hear about the 20 minutes a day now, I am way more relaxed playing the game now! And it looks soooo much better now that the tinting is gone indoors. Haven't gotten the moving bug either, but I haven't played for very long so it might still crop up.

@KanaX has been telling me this since forever. My plan is to animate everything I can and add more wild animals and travelers in town, so it will look more alive.
Hmm, it's less about it being animated, and more about the general mood and placement of the tiles. Basically, I find there's too much dirt used in the maps (the map below your farm is the biggest culprit), it looks like a tribe instead of a nice little village. Pixel Myth has some nice cliffs with grass in TileA5 that you could use instead.

Hey just downloaded the demo and it's been great so far, it's hard to believe this is an Mv game! Found a little something you might wanna look at though. As a reward can you tell me how you got that sexy grid inventory working? HahaOrange Season Glitch.png

From what point did you enter the wall? There's probably a passage error in a tile.
The grid inventory involved a lot of code to get working :X

Eww, code is a swear word for me. I was hoping it was just Jiffs plugin with a little tweaking.

Yeah, i was able to go through each of the light tiles in the mine, I even exited the map lol.

Ah, that's a demo only bug then. I've fixed it on the main game before. When the next update is ready I'll patch the demo as well.

You chad, thanks a lot for your plugins. You helped me costumize the buttons in my game.
I created the first teaser for my game! I decided to make an animation of Cabaret Helen advertising the Pizza Time Theater, set to an actual radio commercial. But this is no ordinary advertisement...

Got a first review on my game, on RPG Maker dot net. :kaothx:
Nightmare... Dreamt I posted a GFX resource post. With a work in progress glove icon that tinted to different colors. In the wrong forum. And I was in such a panic. I saw people writing posts in response, those "..." you see in discord and such. So I frantically tried to report my post as wrong forum, editing to say it's the wrong forum and that I "accidentally" posted it too early... Very odd dream to be honest...
