What do you do for a living?

I'm a cultural anthropologist for a small consulting company. I used to do a lot of work with Native American tribes, researching traditional cultural properties. But now I'm doing more work on commercial fishing and how small communities are affected by changes in the environment. It's a great career - but very niche.

HarmonQuest - who's watching it?

Is anyone watching HarmonQuest? It's about 3 people (and a guest star, so 4) people playing D&D and they've animated their adventure. Dan Harmon, who created Rick and Morty and Community, is one of the guys. And then there's a guest star that comes on for each episode.
As someone more drawn to fantasy rpgs (playing them and making them), I'm finding their adventure really entertaining. The animation is cute enough, but the dialogue and tropes they deal with are really well done. Their guest stars, so far, have kinda stunk though - that's the only complaint.
Anyway, it's on Seeso - but I doubt anyone has that rando service. They're all on youtube though.

Whoa, you made it to Kotaku! Nice jorb!

[RMVX ACE] How can I round up/down variables?

Can you add another decimal place so that your variables are 10s instead of 1s? Then 15 = off and 16 = on?

Rebellion Title Screen

Redwall: I didn't know your font, but considering it's about robots, I gave it a futuristic font.
It also has a blue robot. Hopefully Mirak can get you something better soon. But until then:

Do you ever feel like this game has too many features? Gilding the lily?

Whatchu Workin' On? Tell us!

I'm using a conversation bust script and I realized that two of my characters have eyepatches. So when they talk to each other, one has to stay on the left and one has to stay on the right - otherwise the eyepatch jumps from the left eye to the right eye as their bust graphics are mirrored.

And then, in every subsequent scene conversation, they have to be on their "correct" side, otherwise their sprite looks dumb.

Do'h! Time to find some characters with both of their eyes! These non-symmetrical characters are limiting me!

[RMVX ACE] Low fps/lag

I was having the same problem as you, I think. I had a pretty big map (100x150 or so), with a lot of decorative events, a few parallel processes, and some NPCs milling about. As soon as I went into the map, my computer went into a full crawl. And I have a fine rig - it wasn't the PC.

I tried a few of the free anti lag scripts and every single one of them was a bust. Either they didn't work with my other scripts, messed up some of the parallel processes, or plain didn't solve my lag issue. And then I sprung for Effectus.

Holy carp. Amazing. Put it in my script library and it solved EVERYTHING. The notes in the script are helpful and well-written, the script works as advertised, and plays well with every other script I have running. If you're on the fence and you have the cash to spare, I'd say go for it. Highly recommended.
