I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Craze, your mistake was being the first one to post a Tidus midi in a topic where each person only posts once. That means, by default, I get the last laugh.

How to deal with lethargy?

After years of struggling with this, my new answer is to deal with it by acceptance. Life isn't a race and it's not a mission. My personal projects will either get done or they won't; whichever one comes more naturally is probably fine.

Degica is publishing a VN engine

...My gut instinct is that that's a feature that should definitely NOT exist, and that creating it would singlehandedly bring about the end of the visual novel genre.

What are you thinking about right now?

No more self-righteous horseshit, no more Pom, just the standard fare dumb stuff this thread is renowned for. No more snipes, just music. Suck it in, y'all.

Oh yes, I agree completely. I just found this song. It's really good. What do you think?

Degica is publishing a VN engine

I assume that by "resources" they just mean scripts, fonts, menu graphics, and menu sound effects. Nobody would ever make a visual novel without creating their own artwork for each scene. Creating the artwork is the only thing that makes it different from a book.

Animebryan's Let's Play Mario's Mansion

Lol, spending forty minutes on one stage because you unlocked a path to a new door and then just walked back away from the door without entering it twenty times in a row.

Blow your nose off-camera, though, geez! Pause the recording or something! Gross.

Degica is publishing a VN engine

Even experienced, successful creators of visual novels seem to mostly put out games where the most complicated thing you ever see in the game is a single still image displayed unchangingly behind 50 text boxes in a row. If Degica is trying to make an engine that can let amateurs outdo them without any programming knowledge, I'm extremely impressed.

As a result of the dogpoo standard for visual novels, I mostly think of them as books with a drawing at the beginning of each chapter. The video Nessiah linked is more like a comic book where every panel is fully animated. I've never actually seen that done before in a VN. I especially love all the one-time animations that then seamlessly resolve into looping animations, which I can imagine being a really powerful tool. If more VNs ended up like that, I think people would stop being dismissive of the medium.

Well, I stand corrected about people not being dicks about it, apparently.

no shit

nobody could possibly deserve the toxic bullshit that this community threw at her for circumstances beyond her control

the continued focus some members have (years later) on the 'deservedness' of literally the most capricious and random type of exposure reflects horribly on them, and they need to pick a better white whale

If anyone's ever said anything actually mean to the designer, that's really rude, but if so then I haven't seen it. I don't think anyone has ever actually been upset about Pom Gets Wifi being permanently on the front page, it's just fun to tease the game, because the game itself is so dumb (on purpose!) and because the type of fame it got is also really silly. It's every other game's de facto rival, and because nothing about the game or its success is remotely serious, it's funny to pretend to treat the rivalry as serious.

I could be wrong, there could be jealous dickbags lurking in the shadows who genuinely dislike that the game's famous. But I haven't seen it.
