Apparently, Zed is the British English version of Z, but I don't remember being taught to pronounce it like that in school when I learnt the alphabet. Zee just sounds much more pleasing to my ears, has a softer tone. Zed just makes me think of that character from Police Academy.

The more I look at stuff and think about it, the more I think Yanfly's more quality of life plugins have been included in MZ. Things such as the core engine, auto save (leaks), the leaks also mention adding a clone class to JS objects. So I suspect either/both Event Spawner/Cloner being present. I admit I will be surprised if Self Variables/Self Switches doesn't make it.... It's a functionally present in every other serious/semi-serious engine.

But with Yanfly leaving the scene, the money left behind to make certain they're updated for future versions, and what's been said by important people in these threads... It only makes sense to have moved the "core functionality" plugins into MZ.

Just speculation though.

Also... Em-Zed..... Yeah that's never getting adopted stateside. :popcorn:

@Veno Yeah the light trail behind my character in my latest video is PIXI particles. But I don't think people really understand what can be done with them. It didn't take much to vastly improve performance and the look of my game (beyond the video) by simply remaking almost all of my graphics in PIXI particles.

Curious how each non native english speaking country learns the pronunciation for "z"
Here in Mexico we learn the pronunciation for "z" either "zee", "zdee" or "zed" depending on the type of english teacher you have, "zee" for American type of english, and "zdee" or "zed" for British type of english.

"zdee" is not British English. I've never ever heard it pronounced like that. I think probably most Brits say zed rather than zee, but with the influence of US entertainment that is changing.

As a Brazilian English teacher myself I'm... Embarassed to admit that only 2 years after quitting English teaching that I came to learn of the distinction between the American and British pronunciations of "Z".

Then again, literally anyone can easily become an English teacher in Brazil... And earn a pittance while at it. At least it was enough to allow me to afford some Cambridge certificates if I ever want to teach in a serious school.

edit: to prove my point, I have 2 years of English Teaching experience but I still haven't finished highschool. It's actually my project for the COVID-19 quarantine. I purchased but returned a high school course because I realized I can easily get it over with with a single test at the end of the year.

Ehhhh I may just try and get myself to call it EmZed instead of EmZee so that when I'm talking to my Hubby he knows what I mean and I don't accidentally say EmVee isntead of EmZee...man it sounds so similar that way. EmZed will at least sound different from EmVee

I have to wonder, if MV was something like Mobile Version or similar....Does emzet means something as Mobile Set? Mobile Setter? Probably I'm just wondering too much

I had the same argument with an english teacher who claimed that "zdee" was not only the British way of pronouncing "z", but also that it was the correct one regardless of where you speak english. I think he might have been confusing languages, because in spanish, "z" is pronounced different in Spain than in Mexico or even Latin America, and the "zdee" sounds a lot like the Spain's pronunciation for "z"

Hope it means Mobile Zero, as in MZ was not designed with mobiles and tablets in mind. :p

Well, F those Ds in the Bs.
Im from the US, and I never learned my alphabet from A to Zed.
Zed sounds like someone's name, not a freaking letter in an alphabet.
If they ever razzed me, id probably pop a blood vessel and go loco on em.
Im from amurica yo!

Hmm, on a different note - I suppose this means that MV will move out of the Latest Game Development Engines section on the forum front page and come join the riff-raff down in Maker Specific. "How are the mighty fallen!"

Little tidbit: It's apparently pronounced Em-Zed.

I was the only American in a voice meeting last night, and I got razzed pretty hard for calling it Em-Zee :p :p.
Reading Touchfuzzy's comment again, probably they called it Em-Zed because of japanese pronunciation. MZ in japanese would sound like "emzetto", hence the Em-Zed Touchfuzzy was razzed about.
If you were wondering MV would sound in japanese as "embooee"

My new 49" monitor has been dispatched from the warehouse. Will it arrive tomorrow? The day after? I love that we can track packages now, even if it does only tell me when it's left that end and when it's arrived at the local centre. As long as it doesn't end up in Melbourne again, which has happened before ...
My friend's doing a surprise stream of my game Origin Hunt on Twitch here ! Feel free to stop by :yhappy:
Me, designing it a long time ago: Having an optional boss fight as a random chance to trigger when you fish in a certain spot with a certain type of bait is fun! Cool idea!
Me, trying to playtest everything again: oh god just let me see the boss, my bag is so full of fish!
both love and pain have no boundaries
