Just another ex-gaming industry hopeful, going to school and learning as much as I can. I don't think making a game will directly affect my chances of getting a job, but it will teach me the process as well as organization, something I sorely lack. I'm no longer working for Zynga, which is too bad.

What else? I like Japanese food and cinema (but I'm not an otaku), CRPGs (of course), electronic music (90's Industrial FTW), Belgian ales, meat cooked over fire, 420, CGI, 3D animation, cats, SNES, subversive or black comedy, dystopian sci-fi, and any epic fantasy brave enough to step out of the Tolkien shadow.

My dislikes include all forms of bigotry, country music, fast food, factory farms, multinational corporations, warfare, social networking, romantic comedies (in general), and politics.



Custom Charecter help

The character set is exactly as LockeZ says, however I was able to import the battler as a bitmap just fine (looks good in the database, too). The only problem I could imagine that you'd have with it is not setting the transparency, but that didn't seem to be an issue for you. There is a zoom button, but that's just a preview and shouldn't affect the imported graphic.

At any rate, PNGs are are better to work with in the long run, because BMPs are uncompressed graphics. You'll want to shave as much file space as you can from your game.

The dumbest idea you ever tried to make

LOL Eastern Europe had enough demons of the human variety.

WTF? Is this for real?

It's not that big a deal to me either, although Tameem saying that Dante doesn't look cool and then putting himself in as the new look makes me cringe a little.

What are you currently reading?

Just finished Down There In the Darkness, by George Turner. Great dystopian sci-fi, with a harsh vision of the future, but also a glimmer of hope at the end. I've been thinking about revisiting The Way series (Eon, Eternity, Legacy, & The Way of All Ghosts), by Greg Bear.

On the non-fiction side, I'm in the middle of Ultimate Game Design, by Tom Meigs. I also finished a .pdf on building solar panels, plus another on making your own solar cells using a silkscreen process (aka the "Japan Method"). I've also been sneaking a peek or two at something innocuously titled Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual, from those rascals at the CIA.

Just discovered a manga about baking, called Yakitate!! Japan. How the hell did I not know about this?
