Bludgeon of Inspiration: Currently under investigation
Life is a story. Which is the one that defines you?

Matsumori Days
Matsumori High. Where everything begins. And ends.



[RMVX ACE] Anyone know a good "Golem" graphic?

You know, it occurs to me that the OP could be referring to needing a battler graphic, as opposed to a character graphic...

Under investigation

So, something of a status report.

Originally, not only did our title-protagonist know about the Arbiters (and what-not), she went to Matsumori High, was recruited by Mina (that's not exactly the right term, but, let's roll with it), and had her then-lover die in front of her eyes. Suffice it to say, with a lack of knowledge, the aim is for her to figure things out at the same time as players (more or less). This also leads into the legwork/research angle I was talking about. I still have no clue how that's all going to work, but, I'm nonetheless liking the changes I've been making to this so far.

I suppose the question that may come to mind is when a new playtest-build might be ready. I'll probably be aiming for it to conclude approximately in the same place as the current test-build, but, cannot currently predict how much content there's going to be between finding Rasuna on Togo Road and investigating Shima Place.

I suppose I'm asking for a bit of patience on this. Though, I dunno, it just doesn't seem right for me to ask for such, given how long this game has been under a development/hiatus cycle. Darigaaz, has it really been almost three years now? I sometimes have to wonder if the wait is going to be "worth it". Or, I can ignore such worries, and just make the best possible game I can.

[RMVX ACE] [need help] How to make an event face same direction of other event without tedious condition branches?

Line 1411 in Game_Interpreter is the least useful line to go to, ever. The issue is probably with the script that is screen-shotted.

Now, I haven't completely tested this, but, it seems to me that the script you want to use might look something more like...



*Edit: The issue is that "direction" is a class-variable of Game_CharacterBase (of which Game_Events is a child of) that cannot be directly assigned values like it is shown in the OP. It needs a function to access it, such as "direction=(value)" (which would/could allow for the code shown in the OP) or something like this "set_direction(d)" function.

Well, probably!

What are you thinking about? (game development edition)

I'm thinking about getting rid of the sub-division by chapters for Konae's Investigations. Though, maybe it's because Chapter 1 is so small in comparison to what I figure Chapter 2 might look like? I dunno. Maybe I'm just looking at the big picture of what needs to be done, and being overwhelmed by it all.

Time to build a Final Dungeon :3

Get extra energy with pizza! YOU CAN DO IT!

[General Design] What inspired your game?

Mainly, I draw concepts from Final Fantasy, despite the fact that I wasn't introduced into the series until the early 2000's via SNES emulation? Though, each game I've made has it's own inspiration. For example, I had vague ideas in regards to Matsumori Days for years, possibly. However, it didn't really occur to me to make a proper game of it until somewhere in the middle of playing Shin Megami Tensai Persona 4. Okiku, Star Apprentice was, in all technically, inspired by my incapability to make a boomerang-like tool for completely different game that I won't name, or mention in any other way. Oracle of Askigaga isn't necessarily inspired by games I've played as much as it is inspired by real-life events. Then there's Myriad Cypher, which is pretty much directly inspired by games like Wing Commander - Privateer and Freelancer.

Content creation (technical)

I figure the ID list doesn't need to be altered because of a hiatus. Cancellation... maybe. It depends on whither or not the character(s) in question were ever published. Like, unpublished work that is cancelled could "free up" slots for others to use, whereas work that was published but was cancelled would get a "cancelled" tag a-la Fran.

Though, that's merely my belief.
