Fan of the RM series since 95, even if I only ever finished something in 2k, VX, and VX Ace. Lover of pasta dishes, popcorn, and carbonated beverages.

[RMVX ACE] A quick question for my Hyperdimension Neptunia Style

He/she is planning to anthropomorphize the engines. They'll be the PCs.

A Golden Week of RPG Maker 2003

What kind of game is everyone thinking about making?
the most epic game featuring 45 unique unforgettable characters spanning 60 hours across 5 world maps and an alternate dimension that will be remembered in the annals of history as a modern day classic.

It will be called 'Lost Fantasy'

So in other words, 97% of every unfinished rm2k3 game ever? :P

I am not taking my project seriously at all. I mean I'm at least attempting to map and such but...well, you'll see. Friggin' VX Ace spoiled me with the auto-chest, teleport, etc. options from Control + 1-4.

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

Try KINGCOAST for a nice all-target water spell.
Also, I think FAIL is either void element damage or an instant-death.

I will say that I'm so glad that I understand how roofing and wall tiles work now. No more of that "I made a rectangle that's the walls and roof in one" shit.

Star Ocean 5 Announced for PS3, PS4

Yeah, the fact that your choices in the resort area THAT YOU START IN BEFORE THE FIRST BATTLE EVER affects your relationship values with all of the characters in utter bullshit.

Learning to Use Damage Formulas in VX Ace

I really, really like the damage formula Crystalgate posted. It seems like it makes normal attacks scale a lot better than my basic one, which was:

a.atk * 3 - b.def * 2

What do you folks do for healing magic? I tend to do something like:
a.mat * 2 + 100 + b.mhp * 0.03

So it's guaranteed to recover at least 3% of the target's max HP. This isn't quite so useful for the heroes (although it does give a small boost), but it's better for larger enemies, or even bosses, that can heal themselves or have helper enemies that can heal without having to mess with their REC stat.

Hey im the new guy! :D

They had a big (weird) issue with bots trying to sell...wheat milling machinery, I think? A few days ago, so probably better that you didn't put yes.

Anyways, welcome to the site, from one newer person to another!

[RMVX ACE] Help with HP recovery items??????

In the formula box you should put:

b.mhp * 0.30

(30% of target's max HP)

Also, dunno if you know this or not, but if you hover your mouse over the formula bar it'll give you helpful hints! Hope this helps~

Oatmeal's name is a lie, it isn't much of a meal on its own at all.

Damn it now I have to go and reread the whole damn thing to make sure I'm still capable of reading comprehension
