Resident Nonexistence
I've almost been here for somewhat 7 years and still can't seem to finish crap, but it's been time well spent learning exactly how NOT to do things

Except for that PONG game... I'm not doing that again. Ever.

Current Task: Doing something eventually
Fall of Darkness
Will you end it or lose yourself on the way?



Best RPGMaker for MMO

MV would be capable, having innate browser support.


Does it play in a browser? Yes, as it uses HTML5. Does it have anything in terms of network connectivity? No, you'd have to find how to get that going yourself.

What are you jamming to?

Writing this tutorial is taking much longer than I expected it to

EDIT: and now it's off and waiting for review

What are you thinking about right now?

I hope you consider writing an article.so people know how to do what you do. Sounds like invaluable info.

I will be as soon as I refigure what I did and get some sleep; it also appears that cordova uses a different WebView than Crosswalk which does account for some performance loss so I'll also have to look into that (shouldn't be too much as it seems it compiles a whole separate set of APKs for its shtick without any extra functions being placed anywhere I lied it's hell on earth please kill me)

What are you thinking about right now?

After several days of pain and programming, I finally got RPG Maker MV to fucking load from an APK expansion OBB

This means the main program can be stripped to hell (<100mb) so you can upload it to places like the Google Play Store and still have your game function so long as the OBB file downloads.

I've only tested it so far for the images, but I have a real good feeling it'll work for the audio as well.. Other thing I need to find out is if I can get it working with the crosswalk framework the help docs use as I had to rip it to the Cordova framework to do what I did (honestly, though, I don't notice much difference in performance other than MV generally being ass on mobile right now I'm actually getting some slowdowns now but that's probably due to the amount of crap I have going on as I'm using my actual game vs a test thing)

Either way, I am so goddamn happy


works with audio in the expansion file now

White names?

Holy shit, I'm tripping. What could be causing this? It only seems to be the case on this site, and it was pretty sudden about 3 days ago.
Dude, that's really strange.

Maybe RMN is crashing for some reason? Do you have all cookies on?

edit: I am however, experiencing instances of avatars being flip flopped and flashing in and out. Like yours and eplipswitch's avatars and mismatched...

I want what you're on over white names

What are you thinking about right now?

not exactly sure what a green text is...

on 4chan/image boards like it, putting a > before text would turn it green

>so things
>looked like

Usually used to mock/quote/tell those 'greentext stories'

Or sleep.

SLEEP IS FOR THE WEEEEEEEAAAK.. But yeah, I'll probably end up eating then going to sleep =3=

What are you thinking about right now?

The shit I've had to do to get android exports for MV to be able to use expansion APKs is insane, but it's needed if I, or really anyone, is gonna want to stick their game onto the Google/Amazon play stores (due to 100mb/150mb limits respectively on the main apk )

Upside is that I've managed to actually get the project opened up (and working.. game still plays normally on my device) in Android Studio with all the libraries in place for dealing with that stuff, so I've got to be close...

Maybe I should go eat now, as a reward

My thoughts thus far after 1 hour

  • the cheaper potions helped
  • slime boss took waaaay too long to kill, IMO (I think it lasted 5 minutes at the least). It's one thing when you're late game and have tons of cool skills and this is like some big bad general guy and it lasts that long, it's another thing when it's the first boss of the game
  • second guy I get can't even use 2/3 of his skills because it seems to need a sword, which caused the last point to last that long, if not longer
  • the cheaper potions let me realize that, out of the 14 I had, it took me 8 (~4000 HP restored) to kill that dang boss
  • second area completely screwed me because I hadn't realized there was another town right there and ran back to buy revivals and potions with my new monies. I subsequently died to rats in the desert because no good weapons aside from yoyo
  • In that first battle (the one where you first see Zero with 2 slimes), if you kill the slime too fast (you equipped the yoyo as soon as you got it) then the other one wouldn't spawn and combat ends

  • Slight misspellings (were instead of where, probally instead of probably mostly)
  • Character's went from referring to Zero as "white haired kid" to his actual name really fast and I don't think they were actually told at any point
  • I'm not the best at picking out story-telling flaws, so I'd try to get someone who'd know what's up to help you on that.. All I can say is the delivery of some of the dialogue reads a bit odd at times

Basically, beyond that, it's actually not that bad; keep polishing this up and I feel like it'll be a pretty cool game. I'll have to pick it back up at another point, when I can, and get to the second town (correctly) so I don't get stomped and can give feedback on the later parts

EDIT: also, if it's possible to put up a download that doesn't have the Ace RTP included, that'd be nice for those of us who already have it

It was under the one link I didn't think to click
