    Give it a spin when it comes out... you might not have to re-invent the wheel as much as you might think :)

    I understand why some people are disappointed about Javascript replacing RM. I know I was. I did thought that if I were to use JS, why not just use unity?  But after using MV, I was cool with it. I think it's one of those things you just have to try it out before having an ultimatum and then be pleasantly surprised.

    You and I both... remember our conversation months ago when we first found out?

    It's one of those things you just need to experience before drawing conclusions. The fact you are okay with it says a lot, imo.

    A bit of a silly question.
    Why did you guys go with a totally different logo than they went with in Japan?
    Why not something like this?

    [​IMG]
    I don't dislike the one you guys are going with.. I was just super curious.

    Was it a legal thing or something? Or did you folks just feel the western audience should have something totally different?

    The EN staff didn't like the logo. We had 2 alternatives but ultimately it was Kadokawa who decided which logo to use.

    I like both... but the one you guys went with just feels very and overly "in your face" to me.(It almost seems heavy meatal or thrasher inspired)

    While the other just has this cool.. yet simple vibe going for it.

    Like I said, it was Kadokawa who chose that one. There was a lot more simpler style that I wanted more :(

    The 2GB HDD Installation does make it seem like the music and audio libraries will finally be making the leap from midi to high quality mp3 or Wav. Considering how huge in file size most software packages are I'm not sure why people are mad about needing that much HDD real estate. 

    The move to Java is super smart as well and the move to HTML5 publishing means that poor Tom Fulp over on Newgrounds is going to get hit with a lot of these games at launch. Ha ha.

    I still have questions about features, but since they haven't been brought up I will keep them to myself for now as the answers would obviously fall under NDA. Just going to keep my ear close to the ground for any more announcements.

    That brings me to my next question.... are we still going to see the option to use OGG audio? I have gotten so used to messing with that format.

    Let me put it this way: When Yanfly and Company won't do a complete rewrite of their scripts in a complete new language we're almost back in the stoneage again.

    Let me put it this way: Javascript is much more widely used. Which means more programmers to attract with heavy experience in the language.. Which is just a positive for the community in that regards.

    Also... take this however you will.

    I'm not a super fan of the rpg maker mv logo, but I think it looks better than the japanese one and it looks "rpg" "fantasy" enough and gets that point across.

    To be fair - you got it for free.. Asking people to pay for something to find out if they like it is quite different. (thats assuming there wont be a free trial available at launch)

    And you also pretty much hit the nail on the head.. Why bother continuing with RM when a more powerful engine like unity just offers much more. (I guess in the interest of fairness, RM is ore aimed at beginners)

    Ah, this is why he lurks around here. You're not subtle enough anymore, YF. -5 style points for you. But it's good to see that you will bring Melody to MV.
