I like tights! They're comfy and easy to wear!
Hey, the name's KrimsonKatt. I'm a indie game dev who makes RPGs. I'm also a catboi femboi, nyan! Anyways I have this whole series planned called "Chronicles of Chronicles" featuring over 50 projects in various different genres. I love playing video games, particularly platformers and RPGs, and my favorite series include Xenoblade, Fire Emblem, Kingdom Hearts, Hollow Knight, Pokemon, Persona/SMT, Castlevania, Undertale/Deltarune, Final Fantasy, Chrono, The Legend of Zelda, Kirby, Mega Man, Mario, Smash Bros, Drakengard/Nier, Mana, and Dragon Quest. I also like anime, manga, drawing, writing, comics, animated movies, marvel, music, etc. In other words, I'm a complete nerd. I'm also a waifu fanatic, my favorites being Pyra, Mythra, and Nia from Xenoblade 2, Mona from Genshin Impact, Pixie from SMT3 Nocturne, Ferris Argyle from Re:Zero, Astolfo from Fate;Apothryca, La Puchelle from Magical Girl Raising Project, 2B from Nier Automata, Rosa from Pokemon, Kirisu Makise and Mayuri Shiiha from Steins;Gate, and many more.

[RMMV] Need Karen Sprite for Mother's Day Project

Why are you so angry? I did nothing wrong. I made the sprite myself because I wasn't getting a response fast enough. Why is that something to get angry over? I'm not looking for pity. Where did you get that idea? I don't need anyone's pity, I just needed help and all I got was rude and condescending responses from you and only you. And about your questions, I only thought to PM Mirak AFTER I made the thread. And it was 2 days, not 1 I waited for a response. I'm sorta on a time limit here.

On other platforms like reddit or discord, it usually only takes around a day for people to respond to me. I wake up the next morning, and suddenly there's 2-10 responses depending on how much the post blows up. On here there's just you and me and that's it. No activity whatsoever. It would probably take months for me to get a response that isn't from you, if that.

I needed a sprite for my mothers day project so I asked and the only one who responded was you. And from my experience, I could wait weeks on this forum with no responses, which once again is because it's basically dead with almost no active users. Every day I wait is one day past mother's day, and the longer I wait the more likely I'll forget about it and the more likely my mom will be mad.

I'm fine waiting for things as long as I know that they are coming. I waited for Kingdom Hearts III for two years after I got my PS4 solely to play it. I waited 6 months for Akashics to literally say or do anything on his patreon while he took a massive hiatus. I waited weeks for my Zero Gear Chronicles OC comissions to go through. I'm a patient guy, I just need to know that the things actually are coming or I get impatient.

[RMMV] [RMVX ACE] Pros and Cons: RMMV vs. VX Ace

MV is practically superior to VXA in almost every way. Here are just a few things that are better in MV:
+Significantly better resolution
+Javascript support instead of Ruby Script. (far easier to learn too)
+Far more plugins than VXA
+The best RTP in the series (god like OST)
+An amazing, professional quality character generator that actually matches the RTP.
+Full compatibility with MZ projects as well as VX Ace projects (with a few small tweaks)
+Better quality animations including the majority of VXA's animations.
+Much higher storage for database items
+No RTP needed to install (everything is in the files)
+Better UI and QoL features
+Built-in sideview battle
+Managing resources is far easier

There are only a few downsides to MV compared to VXA, and most are pretty minor.
-You can only use one specific file type for each type of asset, unlike VXA and earlier engines which had a much larger variety of file types. All music must be OGG, all graphics must be PNGs, and all video files must be webM.
-Game file sizes for MV (and MZ) are significantly larger than the files for VXA games and earlier since there is no RTP and all assets are stored manually in the game's files.
-Both the engine and the actual games perform very poorly on windows operating systems that are earlier than Windows 10, so much so that they're basically unplayable. Most of the time they won't even load on Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows XP computers. RPG Maker MZ has this same issue to a lesser extent, the games lagging to an extreme degree on anything before Windows 11. (most people still have windows 10 unless they got a new PC in the past year) Meanwhile, VXA software and games works on all modern operating systems, new and old. (starting with Windows Vista)
-Multiple "junk files" are pre-loaded into your game every time you start a new project that you may or may not need. This HEAVILY bloats the file size so you either need to delete the files you don't need every time you make a new game or to alter the NewGame folder in the program itself to change the base files loaded when you load a new project for the first time.
-There is no built-in database, (well, there technically is, but it's kept to the bare minimum) which can be either a boon or a bane. For one, it prevents too many RM games from feeling the same like in VXA since a lot of bad VXA games all use not only the same graphics and music but the same skills, classes, weapons, armor, items, etc as well. MV doesn't have that problem since you start with basically nothing in the database. This comes with the downside of not having any database items to base your own original items on stat-wise, leading to widespread balancing issues across a lot of MV games.

That's basically all the pros and cons of MV. Enjoy!

[RMMV] Need Karen Sprite for Mother's Day Project

IDK. I thought everyone knew. I guess your the type of guy who's always living under a rock, huh? Not aware of any trends whatsoever. You know Minecraft? Among Us? The Chris Rock VS Kayne slap? (which was incredibly recent and all over the news) The Johnny Depp VS Amber Heard court meeting? That one was right out of Ace Attorney and it's still going on as we speak! But my guess you don't know what ace attorney is, or anything of what I just mentioned. Since, you know, you're like Patrick Star and live under a rock. (this was all a joke/scarcasm please don't take it seriously)

Anyways I gave you some sources. Maybe you can read up on what a "Karen" is and come back to me with that? Maybe read up on some other memes? Widen your thought. Or you get someone else to help me? I heard Mirak is good at making sprites. I even mentioned him in my original post but since RMN doesn't have an @ feature it's useless unless I PM him myself. I'm sorry, but I think you're in the minority when it comes to not knowing what a karen is. Even my grandma knows and she can barely even turn on her phone!

It's sad that these forums are so devoid of life. It's just you, me, one other guy I can't remember the name of, and a few newbies with like 0 makerscore who post like 1 or 2 things before leaving forever. Everyone's on discord now, and all other alternatives to here I'm banned from.

I'm talking about the meme of Karen. I know Karen is a character from Pokemon. I've played gold and silver. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about the meme of those middle aged women, stereotypically blonde, overweight, and with the same short haircut who harass retail workers and random people and cause a massive scene. Them these crazy ladies get recorded and put on the internet for everyone to mock. It's a whole phenomenon. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it. It's super big. I want a sprite representing this meme of a crazy middle aged lady. Here is a couple reference:

A more monstrous version of a karen monster, done as a DnD stat block

Edit: I basically want the DnD Monster version of the "karen" done as a sprite, full body. That's it. Sorry I wasn't that clear before.

[RMMV] Need Karen Sprite for Mother's Day Project

So I'm making a game to celebrate mothers day, the plot featuring me and my mom teaming up to beat up a transphobic Karen who's harassing me. Problem is is that to my knowledge no "karen boss sprite" exists on the internet that I can steal use. Can anyone please make a karen boss sprite for me so I can finish my mother's day project? @Mirak, can you please do something with this? Thanks!

RMN Underwater Pixel Quilt 2022

@KrimsonKatt, technically you were supposed to wait until Illy finished B1, but we'll see, maybe it'll still match up!

Yeah, I realized that a bit too late. Sorry about that lol. Hopefully mine matches up in the end, or Illy changes hers to match up IDK. Luckily I made my part pretty self contained. The only one that carries onto her's is the sun which can be easily edited over.

I claim a1!

Edit: Done!

[RMMV] Yanfly Equip Skills: Normal Skills Always Equipped?

Good news! I found an alternate plugin by MoogleX for MV that basically fixes all my issues and does exactly what I need it to do. Of course it has some issues like not being able to have abilities take up multiple slots, but that wasn't too important anyways. I realized by watching the Yanfly YouTube tutorial for that plugin that it didn't have any feature to have certain skills ignore the skill equip system and be usable without equipping them as the video showed both arts and abilities being equipped when I just want abilities to be equipped. So yanfly's plugin was a bust but luckily MoogleX's hit the spot and is even compatible with Yanfly so that's another plus. Good to end this day on a good note for once after dying the the elite 4 in Pokemon BDSP 100 times while trying to train up a breeded Ralts with mean look to at least Lv60 so I can finally catch Misprit.

Edit: You can find all their plugins here: (This their official github BTW. Not a pirate link.)

[RMMV] Yanfly Equip Skills: Normal Skills Always Equipped?

Maybe nobody has the time to look it up until later? Maybe nobody knows the answer (arguably the worst-case scenario here, but, the outside possibility exists)?
I mean, I sure didn't know the answer. I've never used the Equip Skills plugin. And given what it does, which is pretty specific in RPGs, while it's not the most likely scenario, I think nobody knowing the answer is much more likely than you're giving it credit for.

It's really not that specific. 9/10 RPGs I've played had equippable abilities as a major mechanic, especially games with a class system. Bravely Default, Bravely Second, Bravely Default II, Octopath Traveler, Dragon Quest 11, Fire Emblem Awakening, Fire Emblem Fates, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Final Fantasy V, literally every single megaten game, etc. Heck, even Pokemon, the simplest and more formulaic of RPGs, is starting to lean into that direction with Legends Arceus having a move pool and skill slots akin to SMT. (albeit without passives in the mix or the complexity of fusion)

Passive skills slots is not a "specific" mechanic, it's used in almost every RPG ever made in the last 10-15 years. It's either that or a system where you learn skills based on the weapons you equip like Final Fantasy IX, FF7 Remake, Final Fantasy Tactics, FF Tactics Advance, FF Tactics A2, Triangle Strategy, Fire Emblem Echoes, etc or a skill tree like Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy X, Dragon Quest 8, nearly every western RPG, (except Elder Scrolls) etc. I NEED that mechanic for my game to be fun. It's one of the major features added in 2.0 and helps encourage switching up classes frequently instead of relying on the same classes for the entire game like in 1.0.
