I like to mess around with pixels and pretend I'm really good at being creative. I also hike, travel, write songs, play music, make pizza, eat pizza, drink coffee, drink more coffee, and enjoy long walks on the beach.

I mean, I don't want to be the guy that dumps all over studies, they can be very important. But source, bias, and method are seriously important lest you want to end up like the McCarthy's of the world.

Screenshot Survival 20XX

I've found single colors can sometimes be better for low-res. Though blindmind is right, it couldn't hurt trying to mess around in photoshop or gimp. Also, that yellow is just terrible. It looks like MSPaint default yellow. I'd really suggest finding a less striking color. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I really don't like that color. :s

rm2k3 map exporter (that does events too)

I've run across a similar problem. The best way I found to fix this was to set the hero transparency on and take screenshots all around the map, then in an image editing program, stitch them all back together. It's a bit tedious but works just fine. Then you can resize it to whatever you need. I haven't found a program that does what you're asking and I don't think one exists.


That's good to hear. I know I already said it before, but I'm really excited about bitmap fonts.


Was the double space between words intentional?

I always loved this clip. Not sure how I found it, though.


[Release Something! Day XIII] Feedback Thread

@drenrin2120 I've given Opus a try and it seems like a lot of fun, but I'm having a lot of trouble with it. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or not, but my first time playing through, I lost the second fight because I didn't know my fighters were dead. They were still in combat position. A few fights later, I beat an enemy guard and lost the game.

Hmm... It's not anything you're doing. I'll take a look at the death handler, but I was under the impression it was working fine. Also, for the enemy guard you lost, are you saying you beat him and then the gameover screen played? That would be very odd but if that's what's happening it'll help me pin point the problem.

EDIT: Ah! I see the problem. If you don't revive your KO'd party members before entering a new battle, their sprites don't change to the KO'd pose. Thanks for pointing this out, can't believe I missed it.

An Update?..Maybe?.

Looks like an update to me! And a pretty sweet one at that. Those skeletons look like they may have a little too much HP for my tastes, otherwise, it's charming my pants off. I made a zelda clone action battle system once but this beats the hell out of my attempt.
