I'm planning to have a different battle track for every field area.
Wait, when has the 2nd one ever happened?This will be fun. And probably push a few buttons! YAY!
>I hate it when a main character just up and leaves with my best equipment or I have to "split my party up" because of some random plot point. I'm looking at you Final Fantasy, you do this a lot.
>Patching a game because an event happened IRL and the dev doesn't want to offend anybody.
>Patching a game because of something as petty as complaints about an ending *Cough cough*
>Swords as a primary weapon in a futuristic world.
>Unnecessary censorship. It's 2014.
>Licensed music in games that aren't sports or racing or whatever.
>Heavy metal in a fantasy RPG? Why? We get that Manowar was cool man but dayum...
There's more but we'd be here all night.
You *do* know that is going to bloat the size of your download, and you will then get the "Why is an RPGMaker game a 1 GB download" complaint, right?I'm planning to have a different battle track for every field area.
That's not going to solve all of it. I had a download with about as many .ogg files in it as would be needed to do what you want (especially once you add different field tracks and different battle tracks and cutscene tracks on top of it)...712 MB. First post: "Why is this 712 MB? It's an RPGMaker game!"Well I can always just convert them all to OGG to reduce the file size.
FF8 on the PC used midi (I think). I actually liked it better than the PS version (though I think I'm in the minority on this one). Simpler tracks, much more catchy even. It can be great if done well.I love midi, and I wish I could use it, but I find it really annoying that whenever it gets interrupted (by starting a battle for example), the tune loops back to the beginning. So, if the player wants to hear the whole theme on an enemy filled area, they would have to stand around and twiddle their thumbs.
We call those Guide Dang It! But yes, ugh. Now if it was just a silly Easter Egg, then go for it (here. here is the spear of treasure chest missing instead of the Zodiac Spear. Crappy stats, but isn't it pretty?).- Impossible to discover secrets: Just like the previous one, this has been mentioned to death. But seriously: I hate you Zodiac spear!
What if all battle animations in the game are pretty short (like 1-2 seconds in length max)?Not being able to turn off battle animations. Especially the long ones.
I think it's because everyone is different. If we as devs were to try to fit our game to everyone's needs, we won't get anywhere. So long as what we do doesn't upset too many people, then it's all good. In the end there'll always be people who won't like something in our games.WOW. People have a lot more things they despise about games than I would have imagined. Developers taking all of this into consideration should feel pressured for sure!
That's why I said many posts back that the only game that will have nothing that everyone despises in a game is a blank screen, and nothing more.I think it's because everyone is different. If we as devs were to try to fit our game to everyone's needs, we won't get anywhere. So long as what we do doesn't upset too many people, then it's all good.
