Heyo! I'm apparently new here!

I could have sworn i had an account on here already, but it said none of my emails were registered so? Apparently not,,

Anyway! Hello!

My name is CJ or "Borb" (for people who have known me since. The Darker days of my online Presence,,,,), my pronouns are He/They/She, and I am an aspiring game dev! I currently use RPGM:MV, and have upwards of 5 projects planned (They're just ideas, mostly), with one currently in the concept stage of development- so maybe I'll be fairly active? That is to be determined, as I have a lot going on rn, and I'm not in the most stable of situations :') But! I'll definitely try!

Some fun info about my interests? I guess?

  • I'm a huge horror nut. Psychological, gore- if it's spooky in any way, I'm probably interested. It's been my go-to genre for as long as I can remember- so It's a huge part of pretty much all of my current projects. However, I'm also a huge fan of anything that's super character/story-driven. I'm talking that "Playable Novel" type beat- and that's another thing you'll probably see with me, especially my in-progress title.
  • I attended Watkins College of Art and Design (RIP) and majored in Illustration for a semester before our school was bonked by B*lmont University, and attended Columbus College of Art and Design, majoring in game art and design, for like. a month before I lost all access to the internet for 3 months and missed too much of my online class to be able to make up,,,, so school just has something against me I suppose. But! I hope maybe someday I can go back and stick to it, Gods willing,,,
  • I love Character Design and Storybuilding. That's, like, my WHOLE deal. I'm an OC hoarder; my Toyhou.se character count is over 200, and that leaves out many characters I have made since I stopped being active there,,, I'm hoping to put some of those characters to use in my games. Maybe.
  • I have had a crazy hyper-fixation on Religion, folklore, and urban legends (Especially Japanese Folklore) practically all my life, and it definitely shows up in pretty much EVERYTHING I make. My current project is entirely based on it, actually- like, that's the whole motif of the game. It's so cool to me. Be prepared to never hear the end of it.
  • I really like goldfish. Just. In general. They're another really special thing to me that I like to add to pretty much everything (My username on everything now is literally "Shubunkin", which is a goldfish breed.)
  • RPG Maker Games were what inspired me to really start doing this, actually. Especially the games "OFF", "Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea", and "Ib"; those were kinda my "wow, this is what's possible for me?" eye-openers, and I think the inspiration there also shows. I was also super heavily inspired by "UNDERTALE", and more recently, "OMORI" and the "Yume Nikki: Dream Diary" Remake (Which I actually really enjoy, despite it being something of an unpopular opinion apparently?)
  • I do pretty much EVERYTHING by myself. Development, Character Design, Game assets- I even kinda dabble in doing the music for my project (though, this, I might have to turn elsewhere for because I am NOT good at it.)

Anyway! That's really about everything. I mean, if anyone wants to know more about me, you can always ask. I really don't know how much you guys will actually see of me around here or other forum sites, but I really want to be more active- especially now that I'm spending more time actually focusing on my projects, and might actually be ready to start releasing public info on them soon. Anyway! I hope everyone who is reading this has a wonderful day and has something nice to eat and drink!!!!!!! take care of yourselves!! or else

Been playing through Skies of Arcadia again, and it really makes me wanna see someone try to implement how ship battles were done in the game into RPG Maker (or really just in general).
split view of both versions of the pocket city you traverse through. there's differences like areas only being accessible in one version of Autumn Bay. or events that only happen in one or the other.
theortically if there were a developer who spied on people's game playthroughs and changed things in real time to make it harder for them, what might be said game developer's motivation?
Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
