Hello all, my real name is Jeromy. I'm a video game fan in general, but the way that RPG's make you feel sucked in to an alternate world easily make it my favorite genre (given that the story don't suck.) Aside from that I'm a father and a husband and I work my butt of to take care of my family. I love gaming, but family will always come before anything.

My favorite game... wow, that's a tough one. I'll just list a handful that I really enjoyed in no particular order. Only a handful though, there isn't enough space to list them all.

Disgaea 3 (PS3)
Final Fantasy 5 (SNES, PSX & GBA)
Final Fantasy 7 (PSX)
Dual Orb (SNES)
Breath of Fire 3 (PS & PSP)
Bahamut Lagoon (SNES)
Magic Knight Ray Earth (SNES & SATURN)
Everlong (RM2K3)
Enchanted Arms (PS3 & XBOX 360)
Jade Cocoon (PSX)

Legacy Saga A Tale Of Tw...
Demo for the VX Ace re-make



VX Ace battle backgound issue driving me crazy.

Wait... I'm confused. Mind you I just got off work, so I may be seeing wrong. Are you all saying I'm a bot? LOL, last time I checked I was a person.

EDIT: Oh, lol I see now. You all were talking about fifashopcions.

Rast... what happened to him?

I remember that I did the mini games from the start for HOURS before I actually started the game. Very nice considering the engine that it was made on, I'm sure it was a bitch to code. Hell, it's still as impressive if not more today.

Rast... what happened to him?

If you're talking about this Rast, it's not the same person, as they themselves have already pointed out.

To speculate about your question though, speaking as somebody who was (doing a piss-poor job of) beta-testing Dragon Destiny II, I believe he fell victim to the same things a lot of people in this hobby do: real-life commitments drew him away from the hobby and he just never really came back in any meaningful capacity. Specifically, I believe he was in the Navy and got deployed.

A real shame, because from what I remember of DD2, it was going to be pretty god damn amazeballs.

Oh, ok I understand now. Did he ever do anything outside of Dragon Destiny?

Rast... what happened to him?

I may just be behind on the times, or maybe I just missed something. I stumbled upon a website with a bunch of old RPG Maker games and saw the beauty that was "Dragons Destiny" by Rast. I got to thinking, what happened?

EDIT: I'd like to re-phrase that, what happened to him as a game maker? I see he makes post still, sometimes.

Great ideas. I think im going to try great red spirits idea first

The Top RM Games Of All Time

I've (quickly) looked through all the pages. I'm quite shocked to see no one has mentioned Dragon Destiny, by Rast.

VX Ace battle backgound issue driving me crazy.

So, I put together my own battle backgrounds. I used the PSP Final Fantasy graphics. Here's the problem, I can set the backgrounds I want just fine when I'm working with a specific dungeon. However, with the world map it loads the RMVX Ace defaults depending on what tile the character is standing on when a random battle pops up. How would I go about having the world map load battle backgrounds of my choosing?

I found a game breaking bug with Yanfly Visual Battlers script

Your @actor_sprites array doesn't have an entry for the character you're adding. I'd guess the code below the unindented stuff (I assume this is new) would rebuild the party array, try moving your for loop so it's after the if @current_party != $game_party.battle_members block.

That didn't work, but I found out the problem was with that new code in general. I guess I'll have to deal with the characters standing up walking even though they have died.

I found a game breaking bug with Yanfly Visual Battlers script

Ok, I'm lost on how to fix this. First, I lined the characters to the right side of the screen to simulate old FF feel. I altered the distance from the characters a bit and the only other thing I did was add a fix for when characters die. After doing that, I get this when I try to add a new character to the party while in battle (which didn't happen till I did the above changes.)

Please help, I can't continue otherwise. Thanks.

Oh, if it helps here's the changes I made to the X & Y coordinates.

Yanfly Visual Battlers script question? Show weapon icon...?

I set the direction of the sprites to face right, like an old school side view battle system. Is there a way to swing the weapon icon for the currently equipped weapon? All it dose no is step forward, then backwards.
