Still as bad as Ace. If not worse. I had a pixel font I was using in Ace and it looks like shit in MV. There is a font plugin that may help this, but I haven't tried it out.
>higher resolution font rendering?
Dunno. Fonts do seem to be sharper in MV, but every font gets antialiased, so it still isn't good for pixel fonts.

How's this idea?

The protag is a vampire and has been a vampire for quite some time. He almost never drinks blood, but because of it he's very weak, but he can get short term boosts from bloodpacks in battle and permanent stat boosts from draining bosses. Also, he doesn't have the sun weakness, since that wouldn't be very good for gameplay and original vampires didn't have it anyways.
>>
>>121332581

>>121332581
Replace blood packs with sardines, and you have Valvatorez.
>>
>>121332581
>character profile: almost never drinks blood
>combat built around consuming blood all the time
>>
>>121334282
Sounds like the character is the kind of guy to run from a fight than the kind to face it head on.
>>
>>121332581
>>121334282
>>121334560
These points somewhat important.
Unless what you do can be made into a Blood gauge of some sort - the character focuses on getting super bloated on bosses and needs to more or less coast on the blood meter (used to use skills/fuel passive HP regen) until the next boss, making it imperative to wisely pick your mob fights (running often) and dissuades general grinding, kinda? Doesn't sound like it would be a typical JRPG character if the combat revolves around something like that, though.

I put v[19] =+ z; in a damage formula for a skill

Z should be getting added to its existing total every time
>>

>>121339583
Tried that, then using the skill doesn't change the variable at all.
>>
>>121339421
MV or VXA?
>>
>>121340180
MV.
>>
>>121339690
Try initialising the variable, i.e. setting it to 0 at the beginning of the battle. For some reason, MV variables don't exist unless you do this.
>>
>>121340428
Hey, that worked! Thanks anon. I didn't realize variables actually needed to be set, I thought they all defaulted to 0 and could be manipulated freely from there.
>>
>>121340428
While you're still here, I don't suppose you know how to enforce a universal cap on a variable?
>>
>>121340836
A true universal cap is a bit hard, but if you just want to cap a particular variable while incrementing it, you can use something like v[19] = Math.min(v[19] + 1, CAP).
>>
>>121341109
It's gonna bloat out the damage formulas a bit but hey, it works.
Look at this crazy shit:

x = Math.floor((b.hp * (((b.bat + (b.atk * 10)) - (a.bdf + (a.def * 8))) * 0.01)) * 0.3); a.gainHp(-x); z = Math.floor(a.hp * (((a.bat + (a.atk * 10)) - (b.bdf + (b.def * 8))) * 0.01)); v[19] = Math.min(v[19] += Math.floor(z / 10), 100); z
>>
>>121341109
Sorry, one more quick question: I know that it's possible to implement If branches into damage formulas, but I'm not quite sure how.
I'd like to have an If branch during the part of the formula that changes v[19].
Specifically:

If an enemy is using the skill, z is subtracted from v[19] rather than added to it.

If an ally is using the skill, z is still added.

Feel free to tell me to fuck off if I'm asking too many questions though.
>>
Aww man you can embed youtube videos in rpgmaker MV, but when you hit play it says sorry there was an error. Wonder if there's a workaround.

As a shitty webdev it's really fun tinkering with MV since it's renders games in a node-webkit. Can finally relatively easily pause and seek in videos, always frustrated me.
>>
>>121341847
s = a.isEnemy() ? -1 : 1; v[19] = Math.min(v[19] += Math.floor(z / 10) * s, 100)

Of course, then you might have to use Math.max() to make sure it doesn't go below zero...

I strongly recommend you get Yanfly's Skill Core so you can shove all of this in the notebox instead of the damage formula box.
>>
>>121342176
>I strongly recommend you get Yanfly's Skill Core so you can shove all of this in the notebox instead of the damage formula box.
I did consider that, but that's using the Action Sequences, right?
Don't you have to set up all the graphics and animations when you're doing that? Or is there a way to only specify mechanical stuff and leave all the visuals at their default state?
>>
>>121342327
No, there's a notetag that allows you to execute arbitrary code when you use a skill. The action sequences are part of the Battle Engine, which is a different plugin.
>>
>>121342461
Ohh. My mistake. I'll go look into this then.
I sure hope you're still here in about ten minutes, anon.

I just finished Space Funeral.

Does this game have an explanation?
>>
>>121342461
Started fiddling with it. It does seem like it'd be muuuch tidier to do things this way, but there are quite a few issues as well.
The a.gainHp(-x); part of my formula stops being accompanied by a damage popup, v[19] is altered even when the skill misses, and the skill seems to be broken for enemies (always does 50 damage for some reason).

So I might have to stick with the formula box method, even though it's clunky as all hell.
>>
>>121343454
Yeah there's actually a bug with that plugin that treats everything as a Before Eval instead of what you specify it to be, which I suspect is the cause of some of those issues. (Yanfly hasn't noticed this, which I find a bit amusing.)

Anyway, if you're fine with the damage formula box then just go with that. A small warning though, if a battler has one of those skills, make sure you don't ever set them to autobattle. They will actually execute that formula to decide what move does the most damage.
>>
>>121343790
Thanks for the warning. I don't intend to have autobattle in my game so I should be good.
Thanks for the help, too. All I need to do is add the Math.max in the right place and I think everything should be working perfectly.
>>
>>121343235
It was a typical RPG world, but the pursuit of greater forms of existence ultimately broke everything down.
You go sort out shit over in the City of Forms which is where all this trouble started.
Basically, Plato is saying, "Damn the RTP graphics, damn graphics at all, go and follow your dreams"
Seriously. Theory of Forms.
Also, great soundtrack.

Variable 19 needs to be increased by 20 whenever an enemy dies in battle, and decreased by 20 whenever a party member dies in battle.
Besides creating a thousand If branches for every party member who could conceivably be participating in a battle, any ideas?
It'd be so great if it was possible to just write 'if guy in party slot #1 is dead'.
>>
>>121348171
It's not like graphics are all that make a game good, the writing and gameplay are pretty defining factors too.
>>
>>121349428
It doesn't matter how good your writing or gameplay are if people never even test your game because "hahaha using RTP using the char gen what a chump"
>>
>>121349631
You know that's only some of the folks here right? A lot of people don't even know what RTP is and can't even tell if a game was made with RPG Maker. Hell, I'd still play a game with RTP so long as the rest of it was good.
>>
>>121348171
>>121349428
>>121349631
>>121349727
>>121348776

Just make the fucking game and worry about original assets when it's finished. Common sense.
>>
>>121349784
>basing an entire game based on default art assets and changing them when the game is over

That's terrible advice, man.
>>
>>121348171
Marketing. Also, writing and coding. As has been said before, if you make something good, its easy to attract talent for the assets you lack.

For example, you can't even play my game yet. It's a Youtube series.
youtube.com/user/253entertainment
The combat is still way unbalanced outside of these highly-scripted boss encounters.

However, I did a good enough job pushing the project to get auditions from voice actors I feel I didn't deserve. At the end of the day, you have to give the audience an experience. It's about the whole overcoming the sum of its parts. Your belief in your project will drive it forward, everything else be damned.

>>121349631
There will always be people ready to deride you for using stock resources. This is RPG Maker, after all. They can complain 'til the cows come home, but the people who have RTP games up on Steam are laughing all the way to the bank. They believed in their project, and they completed it. That's the bottom line. If RTP helps you *finish* a project, then use the RTP and let the haters hate. A finished RTP project will always be superior to an unfinished, unreleased dream game with half-completed assets. Always.

Believe in yourself. Believe in your project. Do what is necessary to climb the mountain and release a finished product.
>>
>>121349865
Unless you're making something with a narrative specifically tied to its aesthetics, graphics are and will always be a secondary feature. There is no downside to focusing on your game's presentation after the mechanics and content are finished.
>>
>>121349865
Not that anon, but I don't think it's that bad, what makes it that much of a problem?
>>
>>121349865
With enough business sense they can compile a demo and use that as leverage to commission an artist/composer. Nobody said the whole game had to be in a finished state to find outside help.
>>
>>121349985
>There will always be people ready to deride you for using stock resources. This is RPG Maker, after all.

Look at LISA, it uses custom graphics and people still complain about how it was done in RPG Maker.

Just finish your game, if you can hire someone to make custom assets later then cool, if not then work with what you have. Maybe your next project will be better.

The ancient evil was always residing on Earth and no one was aware of its presence!

>>121350670
The main character is Tyrone Smith. People acknowledged him as the chosen one when the Kool-aid tattoo was shined upon his wrist.

Also, my Battle Status Ex plugin has finally reached version 1,0. In the screenshot, you can see the 3 supported face states (in order from Debug1 to Debug3) Waiting, Inputting, Undecided.

Notetags, Actor:
<BattleFace state: index, graphic>
State is the actor's current state in battle. See the states section for more info.
Index is the index of the face in the faceset. It starts at 0 and goes to 7 by default. The first face in a faceset is 0 and the last one is 7.
Graphic is the filename of the faceset to use for this face. It must be located in the img/faces folder.

Doesn't do either of those things for me. Instead the skill selection window overrides the main command window and appears in the same place, bottom of the screen, but not 'crunched up' and not towards the right.

In an actor's "Note" field. If you open the database, select "Actors", then select an actor, you should see a text field in the bottom right that you can type in. Put the BattleFace notetag there.

>>121362243
That's a very complex modification. You're going to have to wait a while before one is available for MV - especially if your 'bar for entry' is something like GubID's system for VXA.

>>121364868

It's not exactly my bar for entry.

I don't know JS at all, but part of me wonders if doing it via copious amounts of events is possible.
>>
>>121365190
If you think of bathing in the eternal fires of hell as 'a hot bath' then sure, you could create such a system using events with enough time.

Just be sure that your 'masochist' checkbox is firmly ticked before doing so - especially if you want to include an AI for enemies and NPCs in such a system.
>>
>>121365301

Oh well.
>>
>>121365190

You probably could make a SRPG through events, but really, it's probably easier to learn JS than do something like that.
>>
>>121365525

Every time I look at the scripts they scare me. Programming in general scares me.
>>
>>121343235
A good question would be... Does it need one?
>>
>>121365615
Event-code is just programming with macros/safety rails. It shouldn't scare you that much once you get to learn a couple bits of the language you intend programming for.

The Control Variable command, for instance, is just: "$gameVariable[indexOfArray] (add/sub/mod/mult/equals/etc) (number to add/sub/mod/etc)" and then a semi-colon.

I'm working on a free game that ties in to my wife's graphic novel. It could be a factor in book/online sales, so I guess the correct answer to your question is "kinda."

>>
>>121367551
The tilesets/pictures and the scripts are not mine so my game is going to be free as in free of charge.
I don't have the confidence to think people is going to play my game so that also kills the motivation.
>>
Having a hard time editing sprites because im immensely untalented at it.

It was pretty easy to remove a characters arms and make it look like they were in an armbinder for VXAce, but MV's sprites are bigger and that makes it more difficult.
>>
Bobstah, I'm not making a request here, I'd just like you to tell me how easy/hard this feature would be:
Scrolling numbers. Meaning instead of just going from 200 to 100 HP after an attack, you go 199 198 197 196 rapidly.
>>
>>121369129
You probably want it styled like Earthbound, where if you heal before 0 HP, they live.

I'll talk about how hard it would be to do it without that.

Right now, there are no threading (timers in JS, basically) running that you can re-purpose for your own needs. You would have to modify the basic scene to call an update function inside of whatever loop is that waits for user input. You'd need to make that function empty at the Scene Base level, then overwrite the prototype at the Scene_Battle level.

Inside of Scene_Battle, you'd need to create a new object representing each actor currently in battle. Then, you'd need to set the actor's current target HP (meaning damaged or healed), and the amount that was done. Then, every action taken against said actor needs to evaluate the current HP tick, how many more ticks are remaining, and how much we are changing it on top of that.

I'd rather write a Dark Souls style messaging system for MV (which I'm totally going to do eventually).
>>
>>121369808
Oh, no, I didn't mean scrolling numbers in any gameplay context. I meant pure cosmetics. Most RPGs do it.
>>
>>121370047
>I'll talk about how hard it would be to do it without that.
I described how to do it without any gameplay context, anon. It would be much more difficult to do it with gameplay being a factor.
>>
>>121370047
Like, your Hp goes from 200 to 100 in the span of a single second, but if you were to pause it during that second you might see a '164' or a '139'
>>
>>121370202
Oh, sorry, reading comprehension is patchy today. Thanks for the answer.
>>
>>121369808
Since I got a similar question as the other anon, I'd like to ask to you, Bobstah. Another feature I that like a lot, in Earthbound, is the 'SMAAAAAAAAASH' text and sound when there's a critical hit. How hard could it be to script it? As the other anon, not requesting, just asking.

Just to clarify, I'm not making neither Earthbound/Undertale styled game.
>>
Would there be a way to circumvent the game-over screen?
Like rather than being sent back to your last save and reverting all your earned xp, found items, etc etc. it sends you back to a checkpoint.
>>
>>121371503
Playing a sound on crit should be really easy. The special text would be a little difficult, and I'm not entirely sure how screen flashing works. It's probably just a function.

It would be easy to add a combat message that says SMAAASH! and play a specified sound effect during critical hit while flashing the screen once or twice. It wouldn't be all fancy, though. Drawing a picture inside of the message window might work too.
>>
>>121372095
Isn't that already built in? Just set a "When Defeat" condition to a fight that teleports you back to an X,Y:M coordinate that you stored in variables.
>>
>>121372134
I was more interested in a battle animation that makes, letter-by-letter, the word "SMAAAASH", but understood. Thanks!
>>
>>121373709
Oh, battle animation should even be easier.
I'd say that a good fit for what you want would be 'Common Event on Crit', then you could add the animation etc there.

Hell /rpgmg/, I'm using VX ace with Mog's EX weather script (http://www.atelier-rgss.com/RGSS/System/ACE_SYS08.html), and I'm having some weird problems which are hard to figure out because I can't find any relevant posts online, so I'm gonna ask here.
Basically, I'm using this script for the much better than RTP rain effects, and for the most part, I'm happy with them. I have the rain script call on a parallel process in an event, and normally it looks good, but when I open a message box, the effects get thicker and brighter, as seen in the picture. I'm trying them in a new clean project so no other script is interacting with it. Also, the rain is basically invisible in a still which is why you can barely see it in the image. I'm beginning to think that its faintness is a result of me running the rain script in a parallel process and not an autorun event, but I really prefer the faint version. I don't really expect anyone to know how to help me, but if anyone here has used this script I'd appreciate anything you could tell me about how I'm being retarded.

I get that way a lot, where I get hung up on a specific idea or problem and then have trouble ignoring it. The reality, I find, is that it's always worth it in the long run to work on SOMETHING while you have motivation. That being said, this FUCKING RAIN GARBAGE is really annoying.
>>121376574
>>121376895
>>121376850
So I'm starting to wonder if the faintness of the effect when used as a parallel process is even intentional. I would not be surprised if something else is going on here. It could be that the version of the effect displayed during the text boxes and when using autorun for the weather is the correct one, which isn't worst case scenario because i can always draw my own rain sprite, but that raises the question of why this happens in the first place, IF that is the case. Sorry if I'm ranting, but typing stuff out helps me think.

You should just go to any forum with a resource request board for something small like that.

They're more partial to the whims of their fans in Japan and I guess people appreciated the chibi/anime art style in VX/VXA more than XP.

They'd probably consider releasing XP assets - if they knew there was profit beyond covering the costs to make a suite of XP-RTP style assets.

Also, it's worth noting that the assets shown in those shots came from the community - not the company. Inquisitor's tilesets are amazing but they're also not official.

Kids these days don't know what's good, that's why. Back then (<2005) RPG Maker had touch of Berserk in its arts, that's why they came up with semi-gritty tileset.

These days everyone wants to make SAO fanfics, that's why MV is all about expressive bubbleheads and everything is done in soft color and gradient.

Am I wrong in assuming I would need some kind of plugin in order to implement something similar to Etrian Odyssey-like binds in RPG Maker?

In case anyone is unaware, binds are like status ailments tied to different parts of the body (head, arms and legs) and when you're bound you're restricted from using abilities that use that body part (along with other effects, leg binds lower evasion and stop you from running away)

DiM took me about 5 months to work up about an hour of content. Ouroboros:TS took me about 1.5 months and wound up at 40~ minutes.

Granted the above games are totally custom and all their scenes are hand-painted. Like just this one image from O:TS took me a whole afternoon to make and its contribution to that game is about 20 seconds of gameplay.

I don't normally work with just the RTP itself and it looks like each chapter is about an hours' worth of content. I'm concerned about how long it'll take me to get an hour in to the game if it took me 5 months to get an hour with totally custom content.

I dunno it's just shocking to hear how quickly you've put all that together compared to how slowly my prior work has gone.

My chapter (Chapter 9) took two and a half weeks. It is probably one of the shortest chapters too, but I was eventing the main custom feature into a satisfying working state.

Some of the "long" chapters are just padded with battles anyway so you shouldn't really base yourself on those for the length.

tl;dr, Don't worry about how long your chapter has to be, if it's good and memorable, it'll be fine.

>>
>>121442025
I worded that in a really overdramatic way, didn't I?

Well it's not much but it did almost kill the collab game. One of the guys took a few months to get his chapter done and it was kind of mediocre in the end. It honestly caused a lot of the interest in the collab game to flat out die for a long while. That chapter's the reason we even have a suggested time period for working. There was no limit before that.

Cultural cliches causes map cliches.

See? It's about the usual elves, the usual dwarves, the usual hobbits, the usual orcs, the usual dragons. Unusual creatures causes unusual maps. If you look at very old DND books (early Greyhawks, or the ever-venerable Spelljammer) it's full of maps that were anything but 'cliched'.
>>
>>121442557
I think you saved it without knowing it. Having a 2 week deadline streamlines it, forces the contributor to work on it and discourages goofing off.

When a contributor offers to help, then you know they have time off to actually work on it because they know about the deadline.

So thanks anon. Whoever you may be.

Alright, I'm deploying this monitor add-on.
If you have any issues please let me know.

Note: This plugin doesn't adjust/override any base window settings. There are some overlaps. Also, the default assets are scaled to work with a screen resolution set to 1920x1080.

All you need to do to install it is extract it into your project's base folder and install/enable the plugin in the plugin manager. There are presently no settings to configure.

Yes, yes it was. Needless to say people were pretty mad at him for what he did to the collab game. I do think the hate went overboard, though at least we have a stable workflow now because of it.
>>
>>121446693
Yes. Lines 138 down are where the bitmaps are updated and drawn. I haven't found a good way to make it appear on only certain scenes yet.

A quick way to do it would be to wrap up those bottom sections in if(){} checks which reference a $gameSwitches[] variable, that way you can turn it on and off via a Control Switch event. I could do that for you if you'd like.

Right now though the script is either on or off and only applies to Scene_Map.

Hi /rpgmg/, hope everyone's having a nice comfy time working on their projects.

A while ago I started work on a project of my own and actually made some decent progress, but I hit a snag that, after spending literally two weeks trying to fix, ultimately led to the implosion of my enthusiasm. Maybe one of you can help get me back on track.

See, I have an ice-themed boss and I really wanted to make a cool ability set for it. Two of the skills were named "Freeze" and "Shatter" and they did pretty much what it says - the first one would freeze a character, then the second one was supposed to only be used if there's a frozen character on the field, and only on the frozen character.

I think I found a script that would make a skill only be usable if someone on the field has a certain status effect, but I could never get the skill to only target that specific character. Any ideas?

tl;dr: How do I make a skill which is only ever used on characters that have a certain status effect on them?

>>121459132
Have the freeze skill set a switch, then have the enemy use a skill that calls a common event that checks the party for the first actor that has the Shattered state, then have the boss use the shatter skill on that actor.

I think.
>>
>>121459269
I remember doing that. The problem with that is that if there is no one frozen that turn, the boss will waste its turn doing nothing, and I want to avoid that.
>>
>>121459490
Have the skill that calls the common event only trigger if the freeze switch is set.

If no actors are frozen, have the boss execute a filler action instead? Whatever their standard attack or skill is, maybe. It would reward the player for not being frozen, or for curing the frozen status before the boss was able to act.

Or, change the damage formula on frozen to multiply the damage by the state being present, so that it does really low damage without the state but incredible damage with it.

I suppose I just wanna make it look and play out like it's not a workaround for something I was unable to do the way I intended.

I think the other problem with switches was that I couldn't set the freeze switch off if the status effect faded by itself. Which I suppose it shouldn't really be able to do, so this should work, I think. Thanks!

There's always going to be someone new to rpgs that'll be taken in by a giant world tree.
But a RPG connoisseur will have seen it a hundred times.

When it comes to fantasy worlds, it would be pretty boring if there weren't Floating Continents. The genre demands these things because it wouldn't be fantasy without them.

I'd like to see something done with grass plains, since I'm from the great plains. But the only thing they're good for are thunderstorms and Sunsets- which you can't really do with a top-down view. Just a giant battle field for marching armies or territory for a city on the back of a giant turtle.

I don't wanna sound like a downer, anon, but this sounds incredibly boring. You're just making it realistic for the sake of realism. Having almost the entire game take place in just one boring, real town will get tiresome quickly, because of a lack of variety. Timekeeping is also pointless unless it influences events, in which case it becomes a chore to keep track of time, because you take your time with things.

How does this impact game play? ie, what happens if you don't brush your teeth? Does your character need to acquire winter clothing for winter or he gets sick, etc?

>all stats/mechanics are realistic spins on generic rpg rubbish
>combat revolves around breaking bones/drawing blood
Give some examples of how this works. ie,
player attacks giant wolf with kitchen knife aiming to pierce the head
knife misses a bit and causes a bleeding wound in wolf's nose instead
wolf attacks and hits player gets "incapacitated leg" and "stunning pain" status. player can't run anymore
player hits giant wolf with knife aiming to pierce again
hits giant wolf in the eye
giant wolf dies
player dies from his bleeding leg a 4 hours later

>>121467992
Yeah look at those mountains and then look at MV's -_- WTF
>>
>>121466779
I have to agree with >>121467000
It's one of those things that would be fun to design, but not fun to play.
Coming up with modern equivalent for stuff and applying real world expectations; it's uninteresting milieu. The players are going to be more interested in character drama, high school and superhero identities, and not the world.
I mean, they might get a kick out of name play like "Burger Queen" instead of "Burger King".
>>
So I'm having a part where a character explains their backstory, and I decided it wold be better to have the player play through it instead of it just being text. But that brings up the problem of consistency. It's a flashback, so I can't have the character get stuff and later have it disappear. How should I deal with that? Lock the inventory and experience? I do want that part to not being a complete waste in terms of progression, but I'm not sure how.
>>
>>121469529
Make them not get anything.
>>
>>121469529
you could just use a swtich that remove the items from their inventory afterwards and you can make copies of monsters that give 0 exp/money
>>
>>121469529

I dunno man, maybe give the character an unlocked something for getting through their backstory?
>>
>>121469592
>>121469749
I think he's looking for a way to make it so you DO progress in some meaningful way. I don't really think there's any way to do that except maybe making this flashback happen when you first get the character. Maybe they acquire things and then lose them, and then get them back even further in your real time story? Or like >>121469919 said, just give them something in real time after the backstory.
>>
>>121469919

I guess I could make it optional and then give a reward for completing it instead of making it mandatory and giving a reward you were going to get anyway.
>>
does anyone have a text sound effect script for VX ace? the ones i'm using keep messing up for some reason and I remember someone posting one before
>>
>>121469529
I don't know the backstory, but maybe make the character lose the items he obtains in the flashback at the end, but flag each of the items and have him lose them in a place where they can be re-acquired.

So the player dumps all his stuff in a rock near the grave of his dead friends at the end of the flashback, but before the final battle he can go pay his respects to their grave and also pick back the items.
>>
>>121470408
The one I'm using is called "Moby's Script System - Text SE V1.0", and it works great.
>>
>>121469529
You're thinking too hard.
Most games handle inventory and point systems as a game mechanic, acquired by the player not the character. So the player can use whatever they've gained without breaking immersion. Like putting on that bathing suit DLC while the characters are walking through an icy tundra.

You can also play the flashback as a story being told, with some hyperbole.
"And then she asked to polish my hyper cannon"
>that didn't happen
"shut it. I'm telling the story. Where was I? Surrounded by 10 -- no, 20 monsters!"
>>
>>121470709
I've used a couple so far and they've all been giving me the same issue. pic related
>>
>>121471021
I think you might've deleted or changed one of the original scripts that handle windows.
>>
Is there a script that lets you open up the key item inventory and use items from it, sort of like an adventure game?
>>
>>121471223
weird. I didn't change a thing
>>
>>121471453
The other possibility is that you put the script at the top of all the other scripts, whereas you're meant to put it at the bottom right above Main.
>>
>>121471580
I got it now, I put it at the bottom instead though. Thanks anyways!
>>
>>121470874
I like it when you see the same events through different perspectives. In one version a character is prince charming, but in someone else's version they're a buck-tooth hillbilly.

Give it to me straight doc, if I fucked something up on my map, do I have to map everything again?
I only used XP in the past, so I'm used to be able to cut the entire map and place it a few more tiles to the right, to center it. I can't find an option for that in MV. Even worse, I can't even go back and change the floor without deleting crap I put on top of it.
This is just a test map from the maker itself, but I think you know what I'm talking about.

>>121473901

You can shift the map along the x/y coordinates by right clicking it

dear scripters for MV
I cannot figure out how to ask for buttons outside the standard button layout e.g. K
I tried numerous things like event.keycode(75)
then i tried adding K to the inputmapper

Input.keyMapper = {
9: 'tab', // tab
13: 'ok', // enter
16: 'shift', // shift
17: 'control', // control
18: 'control', // alt
27: 'escape', // escape
32: 'ok', // space
33: 'pageup', // pageup
34: 'pagedown', // pagedown
37: 'left', // left arrow
38: 'up', // up arrow
39: 'right', // right arrow
40: 'down', // down arrow
45: 'escape', // insert
75: 'sysk', // K
81: 'pageup', // Q
87: 'pagedown', // W
88: 'escape', // X
90: 'ok', // Z
96: 'escape', // numpad 0
98: 'down', // numpad 2
100: 'left', // numpad 4
102: 'right', // numpad 6
104: 'up', // numpad 8
120: 'debug' // F9
};

like that but that still wont accept if i ask Input.isPressed('sysk')
it works when i ask Input.isPressed('ok')
for example but i need to figure out how to setup secret passwords.

(also as a side note i would like to swap Z and Y because keyboard differences)
>>
>>121479681
I know, the tiles barely work so I'm just trying to work with what I can.

>>121465752
I was assuming it was referring more to the overall map of the setting [ http://nerik.orpheusweb.co.uk/files/Spelljammer/Flow_map_12-06-12.svg ] rather than any of the actual planets.
And even then, I'd have to assume ones that aren't earthlike are more interesting [or at the very least less cliche] than the ones that are.

I've spent the last two hours troubleshooting an issue with the socketing system where stats weren't adding up properly. Every time I tested the game, the stats would get added together different.

Then I remembered: GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKING YANFLY'S RANDOM VARIANCE.

It was adjusting the parameters on my socket gems to be higher/lower and making me go literally bananas.

Fixed it, so the socketing system technically works. I'll be working on some neat shit now.

Whatever you think would be the most usable by the most people, I suppose. Probably standard sockety stuff, gems, runes, etc. Whatever you want, really.

I'd like for there to be no border around the icons like the ones I've been posting. An icon with transparent background would be perfect, I think.

I'd like some input on the intro to my game. I'm worried that the intro seems to much like Tales of Symphonia. As the game goes on, it'll definitely be very different from ToS, but I'm just worried that people will start up the game and be like "This is just a ripoff of ToS!" and quit it right then and there.

>Game starts in a flashback.
>Main girl is being taken away from her home village by some priests. Turns out, she's the Chosen One (I'll think of a better name for her title later) and she has to undergo 3 years of training in order to gain her Chosen One powers.
>Main guy is childhood friends with this girl. He doesn't want her to leave. They give a tearful goodbye and she leaves the village.
>Main guy wakes up in his bed. It's the day that the Chosen One will finally come out of isolation, in order to begin her pilgrimage to save the world.
>Main guy and his female friend head up into the mountains near the village, to reach the temple at the top, to finally meet the Chosen One again after all these years.
>They arrive just as the Empire is attacking the temple. They want to use the Chosen One's power for themselves, so they plan to capture her.
>The main guy and his friend head into the temple to rescue her.
>She comes out of her isolation and the friends reunite after 3 years. They then escape from the temple.
>They return to the town, but it's crawling with Imperials. They have to escape. So they hop on a boat and sail away. In order to make sure the Chosen One can complete her mission, they will be her escorts.
>But the Imperials give chase and sink their boat. They end up far from their intended objective, and thus begins the journey!

Hm. I dunno, Bobstah. I tried to go for something a little more original than the typical 'circle/diamond metal ring' - but it's got some readability issues. What do you think? (These would replace the icons they're over, the jewel in the center changes color to represent the slot's type/usage)

Also how open are you to modifying stuffs like the windows themselves? It'd be handy to be able to do some modding to this screen to increase the visibility of the assets without having to resort to very clear and bright pastel colors like the RTP default.

One thing you need to learn with rpg maker is that most of the time you'll really have to either make your own graphics, or cheeckily take assets from other games and edit to your will, can't say I do the latter anymore but if you don't plan to sell your game or anything then most people won't mind.
