Where on the map do you put your autorun events?

Usually the top left corner. Lol

Am I still one click away from a Roman Orgy?

[RMVX ACE] Battlebacks and Regions

However, Region 1 is only supposed to have Slimes,yet, when I playtest, the first encounter is a Large Snake which is not designated to that Region.

My one guess here is that you have a Troop named Slime*2 but it has a Large Snake in it.

What script are you using for the Battlebacks? I can't imagine it would also overwrite encounters.

I also refuse to believe there were no other cool games made in August?

Could just be me but I feel like the Buzzing section has been kinda wonky, and stuff is falling off the front page faster than usual.

I did play one very cool RM2k/3 throwback game called EXCALIBURIAN!!. It was made in MV and has all the good feels of an older RM game with the modern conveniences of a newer engine.

Ok! Let me get caught up here.

I think the Text Sound option might be causing the crash. I turned it off and I have yet to experience anymore crashes. My reasoning is that it's not a default feature of RMVXA and the crash only seems to happen when dialogue is displayed.

Interesting! I'll have to keep an eye out to see if anyone else runs into this problem. If so, maybe I can swap that script out for a similar one.

Is this going to be out on Steam at some point, like Soma Spirits: Rebalance? Or is there another way I can support you? I would love to donate to you, if that's possible. Do you have a Patreon?

Right now I don't have any plans to release the game on other platforms, but a Steam release could come later.

I'm honored you want to support the game :) If you feel that is it is worth it and only if you are able, the itchio download allows you donate if you'd like. And I'll see about dusting off my old Ko-Fi account.

You can also buy the OST on Bandcamp to support Agent Ape, the game's composer.

Cool! I'm glad you had an overall good time.

This is the first I'm hearing of crashes though, so I don't really know what's going on there. I'll have to look into it. Maybe there's a script I'm using that doesn't play well with certain computers...?

Soma Union

Wow! Thank you so much for such big praise! I'm glad it was a good experience.

As for future projects: Right now, Agent Ape and I are working on a semi-sequel/spinoff to Brave Hero Yuusha called Epilogue Adventures. This is primarily Agent Ape's project and is focused a lot around customized characters/parties and collecting lots of cool items and extras. It's pretty far into development, so please look forward to it! :)

And for projects I'm leading... I'm actually taking a bit of a break for now until I figure out what I want to do next! I'm honestly not sure if I'm going to be able to do something on the scale of Soma Union again, but I'd like to keep doing smaller games here and there. I also don't think I'll be making a third Soma game, and I'd like to do something completely new.

Hello again! I'm almost finished with the game, and I still love it. But would it be possible for you to help me reach the good ending first? I don't mind spoilers at this point, I just wish to see the good ending first. Perhaps you could hide the answer so other people won't be spoiled? Thanks again for creating this wonderful gem!

Btw I love Bright.

Sure! I'll definitely have to spoiler tag this though, so please read it at your own risk!

There are only two endings, but each one has some variation. Neither of these endings are the "good" or "true" ending. Just Ending A and Ending B, basically. You will know which one you are getting and this decision is made at the end of the game.

Soma Union Review

Nice review! Thanks so much for the write-up: I'm glad the game was fun for you! Really glad to hear that everythinh came together well enough to get a 5 out of 5. :)

And yeah, maybe I should't put the group healing spell 60+% into the story next time lol

I found a passability issue where you can walk through the shops sign in Lamp Land. This is on version 1.0.2

Ouch! That's embarassing lol

Thanks for letting me know!
