Should I make another gacha game for the next jam
>>2583313I was thinking of making a gacha game. We could have 2 gacha games.
>>2583313I think each party member need 4 soul slots instead of 2 and more souls type will be nice.
>>2583313Hell yes but you should use characters from all the jam games this time.
>>2583448ThisI don't think anyone here cares if you use their characters as long as you credit them.
I've noticed everything in 2k3 is displayed at 2x zoom, pictures includedperfectly fine for sprites but trying to display a pictures at 50% zoom terribly compresses themis there a way to (script or not) show them with their natural size intact?bonus points if anyone spoonfeeds me a script for game resolution changing
>>2583591I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that isn't true. The regular resolution of 2k3 is 320 x 240 and if you open video options with F4 you'll see that the game is default set to 2x resolution rather than 1x.
>>2583597forgive me for the poor wording but I was aware of the default x2however I did not know about the options menu and how you could "change" the displayed resolutionI guess the main problem I have is the natural resolution being so limiting (hence me asking about a script to properly increase it, rather than using the built-in option to just zoom the game window)
>>2583648Maniacs patch allows you to modify resolution BUT you need to have the steam version with all the updates for it.
>>2583648You can definitely increase the resolution as >>2583814 says using the Maniacs Patch, but be prepared to deal with all of the other things that come with that change. Most of the default systems like menus and battle are going to be stuck at default no matter what you do. Even figuring out how to get the text to display properly is going to take some effort, and the event code required to do it isn't the stuff you're going to be used to, nor is it well-documented (even in Japanese).Pretty cool stuff if you're looking to make a game seem like it was made for a system that uses a specific resolution though (usually lower, like 160x144 (GBC) or 240x160 (GBA) etc)
Anyone have any good resources on how to make music?/ic/ has a bunch of good resourses to learn how to draw, but /mu/ doesn't seem to have shit
>>2583917Most anons here use freeware stuff
>>2583917When I make my own music, I use Musescore. It has spyware in it so use a firewall to block outgoing connections. Otherwise, use Finale which you can pirate for free. If you mean how to learn to make music in general, well, I'd start with basic music theory and learning to play a piano. I don't have resources for that because I learned irl so maybe look for a cheap tutor or take community college classes. Alternatively, look at the curriculum music theory classes uses (their books, videos) then find them yourself for free. I'd also take ear training so you can better understand what you listen to. This will help with trying to use pre-made music and adapting it to your own ideas. A good melody goes a long way in video games, especially if it's a repetitive track that gets used a lot. What kind of game you want to make also helps. For RPGs, you have 2 choices: really cool chiptune/rock/italo disco type music (Chrono Trigger) or orchestral (Dragon Quest). There's more to it than that but those are the 2 big types and are very different. Study and listen to 80s/90s pop, dance, techno, rock music for the former, and more formal classical training (probably need an instructor) for the latter. Out of all the RPGs you've played, just pick the one with the best music in your opinion and try and copy it as exactly as possible. After doing so, ask yourself why the song sounds this way or that, then try to take one piece of it and build around it your own music. It will sound cringy and awful at first but everything starts that way.The only books I've actually used are Jamey Aebersold's jazz improv and the real book in Bb. They don't apply to this much unless you want to make cool jazz music for your games. Oh, speaking of that, if you do, you can pirate software called Band-in-a-box that creates the rhythm section of 100s of different styles and you customize the time signature and chords. It's incredible. Good luck, have fun anon. Nothing wrong using other's music
>>2583959More than anything in my life, I want a competent pure MIDI editor with a piano roll that is as smooth easy to edit in/use as FL Studio used to be back in like the 2005-2012 era. Playing around with that shit back in the day was fun but even FL Studio itself made the piano roll feel like shit in later iterations. Most of the free/openly available stuff is some manner of monkey paw where it does x thing really well, but sucks at another thing that is game-breaking.世界樹 is a great program for instance, but has such a miserable editor that I can't imagine actually composing a full-blown track in it.
>>2583917I throw shit at the wall and see what sticks
>>2583961I've never used FL studio, is that fruity loops or whatever it was called? Musescore and Finale (there's also Sibelius i think) allow MIDI keyboard hookup so you can compose with that, and you can export as MIDI I think.>世界樹All I can find is Yggdrasil the world tree. What's this one like? I think there's trackers out there like scream tracker and fami tracker but I don't know much about those.
>>2583982>https://openmidiproject.osdn.jp/Sekaiju.htmlThis looks so cool except I can't read any of the interface and it would be hard to bruteforce it.
>>2583999apparently an english version is available so it's not like you can't use itit might help if I downloaded an updated version that wasn't from 2017 too but I doubt that will fix the fundamental flaws with the editor's usability and controls. Apparently it just received a fresh update a few weeks ago. Miraculous that such a program still has active devs even in 2022.
>>2584003I'm a dummy and didn't see the english section. I'll try it out. Need to look up some of the terms used though, I'm unfamiliar with MIDI sequencing. I'm a sheet music man. Thank you for posting this anon, I can't wait to actually use it.
>the discord is talking about starting a new jamb-bros?
why does someone keep pushing a meme that a discord exists
Is the irc channel alive?
you guys should just come over to my house and bring a laptop for devving on B)
>>2584060goburinbro just announced a new game he's translating in it.viprpg megaman style game.
>>2584085he already posted a webm of that in the last thread but "ah, okay, cool then"
>>2584055>>2584060The discord is what the Inner Circle calls the Great Filter. After posting in a jam, you will find the invitation but you will not enter the Sanctum until you have proven yourself.>>2584077Well the cat's out of the bag, thanks anon. The Sanctum (our irc channel) is where the Circle of 13 (also known as a Coven) convene on Candlemass for the Black Game Jam. The games will never be public, except when the Master decrees.
>they haven't joined the /vrpg/ usenet group
>>2583917In terms of software, I use FL Studio. But my music making process is 90% winging it and 10% basic music theory. While not entirely necessary in my opinion, having those basics down definitely makes the process go a lot smoother. Lucky for you, there are plenty of Youtube videos on it. Which ones are good? I can't say (I mostly learned music theory through falling asleep during my high school's band class).Also, it doesn't hurt to just look up how to create music for whatever genre you're trying to go for. Being derivative is fine so long as you put your own spin on it. I once made a song based around the first search result I got after looking up common jazz chords. Which you can listen to here: https://voca.ro/1cguKYO9paxL*Note: I changed all the notes to generic piano noises and got rid of all the other shit so you can actually hear what I'm talking about. The original song is an unmixed mess that will blow your ears out.
I'm so fucking bored without a jam bros... I might have to start making games outside the jam again
>>2583917>>2584117Hey bros, the first video I used for basic music theory was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgaTLrZGlk0 that is pretty short and to the point. I do electronic music, so if you have any questions about synth stuff, I can help you out.
For me, it's msn messenger.
>>2584139I test various game mechanic and toss the shit one or the one that just plain impossible for me to make properly.
>>2584139Review all the jam games for fun, anon.
>>2584139I've been brainstorming an isekai, but I haven't settled on anything interesting enough and quick to do. A classroom isekai sounds fun. It's just a lot of characters to do.
>>2584220I've posted reviews for the ones I've played within the past six months, and maybe before. I can't remember. I lurked for awhile before posting anything.
>>2584222Oh shit, well uhh, you should read my favorite VN anon.
>>2584224I already played Sarah's Pizza Adventure too.
>>2584226You should make a 5-minute sequel to another anon's jam game.
>>2584303Only if anon gives me permission to do so especially because it'd probably be a parody
What's a surefire way to make my game fun?
>>2584709Just make it so you have fun playing it.
>>2584709The most important thing to trick people into thinking they're having fun, is to give them a proper incentive to do the task given to them.
>>2583862>Most of the default systems like menus and battle are going to be stuck at default no matter what you do.ah that's my biggest problemI have a bunch of images I want to display during battle but they're all bigger than 320x240should I just use another rpgm?
I've got a list of 10 games ready to start being worked on.No matter what the next jam's theme is I'm gonna have a game idea ready to go!
>>2584709There are three philosophies in game design in my opinion:>just think about yourselfIf you choose this, you're just making a game for you, without considering how others will receive it. It's recommended for beginners (because it removes secondary considerations from the developement proces, allowing you to focus on more basic things first), but if you want to gain larger success, you will have to branch out.>think of your players as childrenWhile you may not literally think of them as children, here you become "a provider" for your players. You control what they get, but you aim to please them first and foremost.>think of your players as human cattleFun becomes a secondary consideration. The main objective is to create addiction. You first and foremost seek out the most psychologically manipulative methods to get people hooked on your game, and then think of other things.As a funny little anecdote: if you want to get into mobile game dev, number one goes right out of the window and number three is almost mandatory.
>>2584709never ever make so there's only 1 solution.if you x boss need certain item to weaken him to the point he's beatable by the level range you decided, then make sure player can beat the boss if they grind like crazy or exploit certain gameplay element.
Let's discuss the next jam themeMy proposal: giant robots/mecha
>>2585098what about board game so my codes won't be wasted
>>2585126Honestly you could probably reuse and refine most of your ideas and come up with something better and better.Picked up this puzzle dungeon VIPRPG because your last game made me wanna play more like it. Though, this is much much harder.
>>2585135Yeah, I was so focused on the STORY I almost abandoned every other aspect, the joke's the story ended up shit anyway. the UI is also a placeholder hence the card suits theme, it used to be about wonderland. I made the game especially easy if you "abuse" the warp mechanic so people can finish the game.
>>2585098Summer's almost here so let's have a "Beach Episode" jam.
>Giant Mechas playing boardgames on the beachKino
>>2585226That's all jams tho..
Jam #8.75 when
>>2585209>Swimsuit piloting in Mechs because apparently suits are just decorationThe good stuff.
Just make a porn game already
>>2585315Ok. I hope you have a forced sissification fetish, anon.
>>2585315I'm going to make the おじロリ game of my dreams
>>2585315Are you okay with NTR?
>>2585315We just had an entire jam for 飯テロ though.
>>2585315Yeah but it's pretty much pronany symphony
>>2585315I draw porn sometimes but no idea how to make a game out of it
>>2585412Just make a normal game and have the protagonist rape all female enemies after defeating them.
>>2585412Porn sprites and erotic flavor text.That is.
>>2585098>>2585272I'm already working on something that fits both of these so it'd be really funny if we went with beach episode just because it'd be so out of place
Making CBS is really fun but one thing giving me trouble is the state machine, that is the part of code responsible for jumping between things like choosing an action, to next character, then resolving attacks, then enemy turn, etc.I've got everything figured out nice and tidy, but this one part is responsible for 90% of bad code in my code.
>>2585915This is why I gave up on trying to make turn based systems and just went with real time ripping-off-kirby shit
>>2585919Like it's not hard to set up at a basic level, especially if you toss everything into one place, it's just I'm autistic about where and how I set different stuff. Normally you just put all the logic in the logic function right? But what about a multi-hit attack? Well then I gotta delay this stuff somehow so it shows up one by one, and how do you divide this workload between logic and view functions? Obviously the logic should call the damage dealing function X times, but how do you know when to call them? Especially since I want logic to be able to operate with view completely thrown out, but then how do I get information that the animation stopped and it can generate the second hit?Just a pain in the ass if you want to follow the "correct" coding conventions. And it's not like I disagree with them, they have way more pros than cons.
>>2585935Well the classic method of "try to explain your problem in simple terms, and you'll find the solution" works as always.>calculate all the hits at once>store the results in an array so that the view function can grab them afterwards and play them one by one
>>2585915this is why I don't use 2k or 2k3. Eventing is nice for retard like me but it's too limiting sometimes.
>>2585935>>2585939This is among the correct responses to this issue.The thing about CBS (and any custom system) is that if you start by building it smart in the first place, everything you do should piggyback your basic framework, and adding features to it will theoretically be infinite.For example, if I want to add a function to my damage calculation phase of an attack (such as checking/applying modifiers based on weakness and resistance) I can just... add it in right at the point of damage calculation. Or rather than trying to manage buffs/debuffs by literally adding stats to an actor/foe (harder to track and deal with imo) I can just apply stat mod at the point of damage calculation as well. All you're doing is pointing around to relevant parts of your actor/enemy arrays to grab data, then acting on it.It all sounds really complicated, but one of the most important parts of getting something like this to work is that it should be simple.>Who is acting now? (point to their section of your variable array for stat grabbing/etc)>Who is being targeted now? (point to their section of your variable array for stat grabbing/etc)Depending on your exact battle system and intent, the precise way you go about dealing with all of this will surely change. But if you can establish these two things as a baseline, you can pretty much do whatever you want. Your code can be infinitely re-usable.
>>2586012As a simpler example, let's use an item menu to demonstrate this.What is an item menu at its core?>A series of values that says "which item?" (1=potion, 2=mana potion, 3=phoenix down, etc)>A series of values that says "how many?"If you have these two things, you can do a lot of work with them.Let's say your "item storage area" is a variable array that starts at \v, and your data is stored in 2 variables like so>\v[XX1]=Item ID>\v[XX2]=Item QuantityYou might have a space that looks like>101 = 1 (potion)>102 = 4 (4 of them)>103 = 3 (phoenix down)>104 = 2 (2 of them)>105 = 0 (nothing, empty slot)>106 = 0 ("")>107 = 44 (Huge Titty Shield)>108 = 1 (1 of them)>1xx... = 0...0Great, but how do we do something with this?Well, let's say you have a cursor. What does a cursor do? Literally, it points at something. We can use this to our advantage. Let's say that the up/down arrow keys "point" the cursor to the next Item slot? You just +2 or -2 right? Cool. While you're at it, why not check what item you're pointing at? Set up a new variable to check the value of the variable you're pointing at.What happens if we push the Enter key? Well, that changes depending on the item your cursor is pointing at, right?>If ENTER key is pushed>>If Item = 0, do nothing, play buzzer sound>>If Item = 1, do this>>If Item = 2, do this>>If Item = 3, do thisCool.Wait, I want to show a picture of text that says what an item does too.Great, we're already checking what item we're pointing at, so why not throw in a show picture command that does exactly this based on the value of the item being pointed at? Just make sure that if the value = 0, erase the pic layer so it doesn't keep showing it.
>>2586038What if you get a new item and want it to land in that item section? Depends on how your item system works, but let's say that we want your newly acquired item to end up in the "next available" empty slot between your phoenix down and your titty shield?>Point to 101>Check to see if it has an item in there>If it does, +2 to pointer, check again>If it doesn't (0), copy the value of the newly found item to that 0>then advance pointer +1, put the amount of the item you found in there, end processboom
>>2586041just use script command in newer rpgm, 2k was released 22 years ago.
Holy mother of kino that was the sweetest thing I've read all week
>>2586107The Tybleychads really won with this one.
>>2586089Thinking about making a monster collecting game. This might be a mistake, but I know it'll be fun.
>>2586210Start small with it and make a test project where you can only collect three guys so you can get the hang of storing their data and then decide if you want to do it.
>>2586107Thanks for playing anon, glad you enjoyed!
>>2586012Yeah, you can throw everything in one place and it works. It's not "correct" to do so, but the thing is, it depends on the complexity. Whenever writing code for a project, it should be as complex as whatever you're making. Simple code in your dream game that you spend years making will give you so much trouble, or make it an unplayable buggy mess (see Yandere Sim, if/else statements are fine, but not in a game of that scale). But if it's a jam game you spend 1-2 weeks on and never touch again, just toss everything in one place and don't look back because it won't give you issues few months later. I'm using Godot and writing the combat system with MVC pattern, which stands for Model View Controller (fancy words for Logic, Output and Input respectively), because it works really well for what I'm trying to do.The idea of this is that you basically separate the three parts from each other, so you have Controller code reading what the user does and calling respective functions in Model, which does stuff like calculating damage and checking who died, and passes that to View What's the point of this split? It helps keep things clean first of all, you know where to find stuff responsible for each of these three. Then you can just delete the View and Controller, and Model still works on its own because it's separate, great if you want to make either from scratch, or have some dev commands or devmenu not available in full game. And also whenever you try to change something, since all three work in their own little bubbles, there's much less errors to fix in general.But again, this is because I'm working from scratch. RPGM already splits input/output from the combat code, it's really simple in there (and in Unite when that comes out)
>>2586107it pissed me off that they are not centered
>>2586330It's because Henley's slowly walking towards him for dramatic effect. I've been thinking about their hug scene every now and then for days, I think Minkulus awakened a fujoshi in me
Do people actually think that making custom code in RPGM Unite will somehow be easier than in previous versions? That's the vibe I'm getting from the delusional fanboys on the internets. Spoilers: C# is a more complex language than JS or Ruby and there's literally nothing stopping you from inputting whatever you want into the code right now.Or is this all just "I will totally start my project when the NEXT version hits" -cope?
>>2587070I think the hope is that the base engine will have more options, but I don't know that that'll be the case. IDK man, if it's unity-based isn't that basically just as plug and play as RPGM?
>>2587070I think it might be the fact that you're a nigger.
>>2587070>Or is this all just "I will totally start my project when the NEXT version hits" -cope?It is.
>>2587070I don't think RPGM Unite requires devs to learn C#, just as MV and MZ don't expect devs to know JS
i now have all the freetime in the worldi now have no ideas for anything
>>2587446A game about having too much freetime.
>>2587446Summer break started for colleges or did you get fired
>>2587448I think I can work with that.>>2587508The former.

>>2587515That reminds me, summer is supposed to be the time for scary stories.
>>2587562What did he mean by this

>>2587688intimacy is hot though
>>2587714Play and review the jam games
The thread's slow because we're all making progress!
I hate godot so much sometimes.why the hell is AnimationTree opening 2 different things for the state machines???it should open the second one for the two of them, but it isn't for no reason.
>>2587810nvm I figured it out
I want a porn jam just to see what the regulars whip up
>>2587849I wouldn't mind trying my hand at it, it's just going to be really ugly and bad drawings/animation though. I might try a newer RPGMaker for a bigger picture event than 320x240, that way I can import handmade drawings at least. What is the first RPGMaker that does that?
>>2587851XP but VX Ace might be better
>>2587853How so? I've used both a long time ago, but way before I knew how to do anything so my impressions are hazy. I don't care about plugins or the programming (ruby vs whatever the other one is). I think they add an extra layer to XP, right? That would be incredibly cool.
>>2587805i'm playing fgo>>2587849look deep inside yourself and ask if you really want this.
>>2587849Don't encourage my fetishes, anon.
>>2587861I thought about making an FGO card battle system but I’ve only played a little bit of FGO so I have no idea what the pros and cons are. I just remember watching really cool chains of attacks and skills on youtube. I’m also not sure how FGO manages to handle having hundreds of different servants and NP cards(?). I assume there’s constant patches on abilities.
>>2587861>>2587865>look deep inside yourself and ask if you really want this.I've been browsing this site for 10 years. Most of that time spent reading threads on /d/. I want to see it.
>>2587891i tried making an FGO card battle system for the last jam but gave up when i realized how much work it'd be. it's also way more intricate than it looks, but that mostly is owed to the sheer number of characters and skills in it. and yeah, old servants get "rank up quests" that help modernize them all the time. one of the main things praised about the game is that lower-rarity servants can still be pretty useful if you invest in them, so you don't really need a full team of SSRs to clear stuff. but i digress>>2587892hmm. i'd have to make an alternate account so none of my irl friends find my weird fetish game i guess... not that they play my games, kek, but the paranoia would keep me up at night.
>>2587902>i'd have to make an alternate account so none of my irl friends find my weird fetish game i guessYour irl friends know about your jam games?Mine do too but they know I'm into some really weird shit.
>>2587892>>2587902I show my mom all my games (and other anons). I'd probably tell her it's naughty and not to look and she'd understand. Also I can't find any downloads or torrents for XP except one on rutracker and it was broken and possibly had a virus, doubt it though. Any help anons? I really want to try XP, no VX Ace or above.
>>2587909>Your irl friends know about your jam games?some of them played the first few but beyond that they ignore em. which is fine, but it feels really awkward when they ask what i'm doing and i bring up that i'm working on a new game and they have to dance around the fact that they've been "so sorry. too busy. sorry" for more than a year now kek
>other anon’s friends and mothers have seen your game恥ずかしいです
>>2587917Unfortunately that's how a lot of people can be, they want to be nice rather than saying "sorry, I don't like playing rpgmaker games". >>2587918I'd probably pass out if my mom played any of my games.
I'm starting to think I'm too old for this place
>>2587942How old are you now, 20?
>>2587936last post i'll make bitching about this but i just kind of always thought that since i support their projects (buying their books, shirts, comics, etc) i figured they'd be willing to give my work a go once i got into creating but ah well. it's too high concept for those bastards anyway.the idea of my folks playing my games is funny, but i don't think they'd get too far anyway. i remember being a little kid playing ff7 in front of my dad and he'd make fun of how the combat looked kek
Show your games to your mother and ask for her opinionI just got disowned!
>>2587942Do you mean only young people live with parents? I thought this website was for wizards and neets. My mom is nearly 70 and I've manipulated her into enjoying anime and fantasy books like Lord of the Rings, she understands video games well enough, even the weird shit that gets made in jams. Any "icky" parts she just laughs and looks away.
>>2587960>Happy Mother's Day!

>>2587070Unity has blueprints. Nuff said.
>character is new to town>NPC shows him around>this is also so the player gets an idea where things are before they start going around interacting with thingsI wanted to let the player follow the NPC out of their own volition, giving them the option to fuck off too and wander about their own. But I am wondering if that is just not wasted effort and I should instead make it a quick succession of cutscenes to get it over with and don't risk the player getting lost.
>>2588553This sort of thing is based and should absolutely be done.>track how many things that aren't following the NPC the player does>after a set number, if the player doesn't arrive at the next intended location, NPC appears and chews the player out, dragging them to the intended locationProblem solved, soul added.
>>2588553>>2588589Fwiw I would be annoyed and immediately drop a game that did that. Let me explore.
>>2588596No one said it had to happen right away>Explore around most of town>fuck off and leave town to go somewhere else entirely>think you've just freed yourself from doing the main quest>dude appears and drags your ass back

>>2589433If you do, I'll join. I can't fucking help myself. Even when I'm exhausted and want a break, I keep joining jams...>>2589369This is very nice, a pleasant neutral color.
>>2589458If there is a jam after june 20 I will join
Can the jam wait a few days?Makai kingdom is getting it's pc release soon.
>>2589563there will be no jam.
>>2589563It's just shitposting friend. I'm an attention whore and jams are where I get it.

>>2589791Whenever an enemy female hits you you come closer to cumming. If you cum without your mistress's permission you lose.
>>2589799What if an enemy male hits you?
>>2589800Your mistress calls you a good sissy boy and gives you a reward.
Is MZ worth using over MV?
>>2589812Do you already have MV? If so then no. Otherwise yes.
What are you all doing now?
>>2590081Taking it easy and playing the rest of the jam games. Also writing down new ideas for games.
>>2590081Working on my main project
>>2590081getting more used to godot, drawing and trying to get into making music
>>2590081Playing through a jam game daily and yesdevving while I've got sufficient motivation.And trying not to get sidetracked by developing parts of other projects I've wanted to do for a while, but feel I finally have the skill and understanding to make.If anyone has any idea how to trick Microsoft Excel's VLOOKUP function into being case sensitive while using the TEXTJOIN function to convert the individual letters in a string into arbitrary numeric values, let me know.
>>2590081working on a side projectmight post if i finish it
>>2590081Having fun with the jam games. Also working on art and implementing them the way I want.
>>2590081Porting my main project to Unity.
>>2590081I keep thinking up a story making some sprites for the main character,npcs and sometimes followers then i make some item icons for potions,armors etc. then i abandon the project and start the next one i make some story in a notepad,i make some sprites,i make some items and then i abandon the project and start a new one...
>>2590081I will attempt to write the complete script before actually making the art and them compiling it into the engine.It's usually script and art that get me every time. I'm not even bad or new at art, I'm just too lazy.
>>2590471go back through all the ones you made, pick out your favorites, then make a new one with all of them combinedthen finish it
>>2590081I just did the neurolympics test thingy and found out my brain is hard-wired to never be able to finish work.
16 people downloaded my shitpost pizza game...
>>2590758Weak.19 downloads here.
hmm. don't know how to feel about that
>>2590758>>2590772i don't check downloads so i don't know
>>2590777What did he mean by this
>>2590780i need to make better more interesting and more enticing games
>>2590758>>2590772I downloaded twice by accident. Not sure which one of you it is.
>>2590492Theres definitely enought assets to slap together a game(or a few) out of the stuff i already made for all the abandoned project i never finished but i dont really feel like all the pieces fit together.
what do you guys do for art?
>>2590869I make pixelshit
>>2590869I drew at a higher resolution for my other games and then downsized the sprites in Photoshop, but for Lotus Eater I made the sprites at 320x240 (the default resolution of RPGM2k/2k3 games) and just did all the color indexing crap in Photoshop. You should probably draw your character expressions on a separate layer from everything else.For drawing programs, it's gotta be Paint Tool Sai for me, but I use Asesprite for messing around with tilesets and character sprites.
>>2590869i draw my garbage in gimp
>>2590869normal paint for drawing and then i edit out white and resize with paint net.
>>2590869Give myself 6 hours max each piece or I’ll have no game.
>>2590869I use krita to draw characters and aseprite to draw tiles and other small stuff and then pray that they look ok.
>>2590869I rely exclusively on AI generated stuff these days because I'm a total drawing dekinai, absolutely hopeless when it comes to art.Yes, it's soulless, but it allows me to focus on what I am able to do instead of getting hung up on the things I can't.
>>2590984>AI generated stuffthat sounds fascinating. what tools do you use?
>>2590869RPG Maker assets and google image search with "creative commons" enabled
>>2590869>paint.net>look at example picture>try to recreate it with pixelsI'm trying to incorporate shading but it will take time. I also am try drawing from imagination more often instead of from references.>>2590984>>2590985I think it was goburinbro who used, what appeared to me, to be scaled down AI faces in After School Dungeon Club, and it was pretty cool.https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/
>>2590869It doesn't matter with what program you draw. Either you have art skill or just draw shitty doodles.
*scratches ass* *takes whiff of fingers*Hm*scratches thread* *takes whiff of fingers*Where's the progress?
>>2591089Playing around with godot and musescore, made little progress with either.The tutorial on the godot docs about a custom scene switcher is fucking worthless, but at least I kinda have an idea on how to implement the concept.
>>2591069not the point of the post dumbass
>>2591100just use rpg maker
>>2591127but I'm having fun with godot
>>2591100That's it, you've done it. I'm gonna try godot during the inter-jam lull. I may never get anywhere with it but I'm just gonna try it and have fun.
>>2591179Good luck, if I can give you one tip is to familiarize yourself with the setget keyword and match loops, IM4 is literally a match loop that runs other match loops, while a lot of small stuff is done thanks to setgets.https://docs.godotengine.org/en/stable/tutorials/scripting/gdscript/gdscript_basics.html#doc-gdscript
>>2591127>he doesn't understand the manly desire to reinvent the wheel
>>2591179I don't wanna sound like a shill, but wouldn't it be better to invest time in Unity, with new RPGM around the corner?At the end of the day both are about equally good, but I do see more benefit in learning Unity.But on second thought, going from Godot to Unity or vice versa is trivial once you know how this stuff works, since it's all the same. So starting with Godot, if you plan on trying Unite later, will give you a good grasp on differences between the two and help choose the one you like more.
>able to draw portraits>able to draw backgrounds>able to make music>able to actually make a game with a story>>>>>>can't for the fuck of me draw tilesetsIs it over for me? How do I jump this hurdle?

I made a thinghttps://vocaroo.com/1f6UuXDF7I3X
>>2591395I love it anon, very primitive sounding, like I'm exploring a dinosaur landscape. Would fit into a Land Before Time game.
>>2591410>Would fit into a Land Before Time game.New jam? Only dinosaur characters
>>2591426>Ducky is a white mage>Sarah is a black mage>Littlefoot is a monk>Spike is warrior>Petri is a thief
>struggling since yesterday with the most uninteresting and autistic thingfuck I hate naming stuff
>>2591435i have an oc i came up with literally like 14 years ago that i never named and still just call "the beetle guy"
>>2591426Next jam will be the Dinos vs Mechs jam.
Had a dream where all the jam members collaborated but all I remember is a 30 year old blue haired female character dressed in lolita fashion who called herself "top loli' and was extremely clumsy. Also the villain wasa guy who raped random people on the bus but the driver didn't give a shit.
>>2591961top loli made me giggle and if i don't see it show up somewhere in next jam, you will have squandered a great opportunity
>>2591965She was very obviously an adult too which was the funniest art. Full breasts wide hips but she kept insisting that she was "top loli"
>>2591961>Also the villain wasa guy who raped random people on the bus but the driver didn't give a shitWas he sexy
>>2591976So she took the Jason Schreier approach to being a loli.
>>2591978Well he looked like ojosama drew him so yeah.
>>2591332>>2591389I can draw, but the engine's integration system where it merges textures between each other to make them look smoother hurts my brain (water on sand, turning grass, e.t.c.). Could you send me some examples for backgrounds as maps? If you mean drawing an entire map as a picture, I don't know how to stick the image to their respective coordinates without the parallax just following the player.
>>2592026Top loli kinda looked like the girl except she was 6'1 and her hair was poofier
>>2593432A retard who is infamous for calling the people attracted to the Dragon's Crown Sorceress pedophiles.
>have trouble finish a sprite>do other stuff because I just can make it look good no matter what>randomly find a folder with all the stuff I made as a teenager>one of the fully completed sprites from back then has the exact part I'm having trouble finishing and it matches perfectlyguess I'm a 4D chess master now
So if I wanted to make a classic wizardry clone with only eventing would I have to put an event on every walkable tile that draws different images based on what direction you are looking at to get the 3D dungeons or is there a better way?
>>2593624Not quite that complicated. Start with something manageable like implementing the tank-like controls you're after, and then imagine a separate event that you have to call with every single step that is taken to scan the terrain around the player, and display the correct images to reflect the current area within viewing distance.This event might (and most likely) would call an individual event responsible for handling each possible "section" so you can keep things organized.It's worth playing around with photoshop or whatever to get a feel for how you will need to layer this since doing it in the wrong order will just cause you headaches.
>>2593746>scan the terrain around the playerYou mean with the Get Location Info command? Fuck, I totally forgot that was a thing. Thank you, I finally get it now.
I did it I managed to transfer the player from one map to another.
>>2594319great work anon, nice.
>>2594319Transferring was giving you trouble you say?Does that mean you had...ISEKAI MADNESS???
>>2594381This made laugh harder than it had any right to
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlw6NTzCR9gCan I reach this level of skill in under 10000 hours? That's like, 3 months of practice, 2 hours a day.
>>2594647less shitposting, more practice.
>>2594741No time for practice, I've gotta coom!
>>2594647why does that video specifically have 92k views and the rest are in the 5k or less range lol
>mfw looking for the new jam
>>2594947no more jams.
>>2594947Join us on discord
>>2594947Late JuneIf there's no jam by then I will host it myself (again)
>>2594958>join the jam discord>half the server is inactive or only posted once>goburinbro is the only mod and admin but he rarely posts. Shit talking VIPrpgs is an instant ban.>minkulus and ojosama are sharing yaoi reccomendations in the writing channel>iowacorn has his own channel where he writes fanfiction about his favorite cartoons and celebs>maldon has been banned for using godot, but he keeps making alternative accounts>there's a bot installed to remind retinacyst to take his meds>emseydev is taking all the pictures posted in #selfie and making them characters in his next game>cerealwaterfork has a discord exclusive game, Of Fate and Discord>sordis created the server, but he's long since deletedI'm good
>>2591393Learn to do at least 2 of those things and find someone that can help you with the rest.
>80 gamesOnly 2 more jams and it's over
>>2595117We're stopping at 1,000 games
>>2595074sounds lit, some day i will be invited to it
I just don't get rpg balancing..
>>2595553I don't get how to make interesting and varied skills.
>>2595553>https://youtu.be/-aG9cvFVUP4Me neither. Just like buff HP it seems then try to overcome it.
>>2595074This is how you know the discord meme is untrue. I'd never listen to anything a robot says.
>>2595553I just put number randomly and hoped it magically worked
Anyone of you made any mods for any games? I'm thinking about modding Total War.
>>2596058I modded Off.
post reviews of the jam games i need to know which ones to play
>>2596130play nodesI want at least 100 downloads.
>everyone makes games but no one plays themSad!

>>2596234>literally sitting at 11 dls
I had a dream we got a jam with 40+ submissions because the theme was Title Screen and I submitted a game called "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN" that was just a .jpg of Ian and Penny having sex. For some reason it exported as .mp3>>2596234Some anons could be shy, I've been playing the games since the first jam but I didn't post reviews until a few months ago.
>>2596234I play them but I occasionally forget to post a review, I'll do it when I stop myself from getting distracted
>>2596234I never play games not made by ojosama!
>>2596921Next jam we're all sending our games to ojosama and having her upload them.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1967140/RPG_Maker_MZ__Grid_Map_Tiles__RPG_Maker_Edition/?curator_clanid=38018723How do you feel about this tileset they released this friday? It's pretty unique in a sense that it doesn't have autotiles, just tiles and tiles for a grid styled look.
>>2597017I like the look. They've always got some top notch pixel artists.
How do I get the gamedev spark back
>>2596305>Wasn't able to beat the final boss, good shitpost game otherwisePizza Western Dev here. Shhh, now don't tell anyone I told you this, but there's a skill you get at level 8 that makes the combat a complete joke. It costs quite a bit of MP, but from what I remember, you can kill the final boss within two turns.
My mistress says I can't cum until the next jam
Patiently waiting for Unite. Anyone tried Unity before? How easy is it to make an rpg with it?
>>2597476It takes a *long* time to get up and going with Unity (relative to RPG Maker), but with Unite I expect we'll get the best of both worlds. All the systems and assets from RPG Maker, combined with the flexibility of a general game engine like Unity.
reminder to any newfrens and lurkers: you could be making your own entries here for absolutely freehow?just get VX Ace or MV from the link belowhttps://mega.nz/folder/Cll0DTSA#pBth74F1_8N7fdTCVq7Rdw
>>2598156I ain't clicking on that shit!
>>2598156Nice try tranny, we all know that's just your mutilated dick pictures.
>>2598172dude trust me>>2598173i am very sorry to hear if that actually happened to you anon, that's a gruelling fate, but don't worry, just pirated rpgm and dlcs here
>>2598156Reminder that Steam 2k + Steam 2k3 are both DRM free as well for the pirate chads.But it's $2~ on sale anyway and if you're too cheap for that, well...
>>2598209I have both them legally I still use pirated vx ace.
>>2598209I got both but 2k(3) is not as versatile as VX Ace, though they're kinema in their own right
>>2598209I never pay money for anything! Even my house is stolen.
lurker herewhat is the best version of rpgmaker?
>>2598317VX Ace used to be the go-to, but MV has had the time to get a lot of resources for it as well, so now it's either one of those, you can't go wrong with either, though honestly anything from 2000 to MV is pretty nice except normal VX, don't go for that one, VX Ace is better.
>>2598341It's 12 pm anon
>>2597476Depends what you want to make.It takes "longer" to learn and make something than RPGM for sure, but we're definitely not talking years of time. The biggest problem is the "soft reset", since you go from effortlessly throwing things together with all the tools you're given, to having to make half of the tools yourself, and not being good at it at first.There's a couple tutorials on Unity Learn for 2D RPGs (two 1-2 hour ones, and one 10+ hour), which will run you through almost everything, except combat (and some boring things like main menu and saving and options etc).And the combat is arguably the hardest part to make, due to all the stuff that is going on (numbers, buffs and effects, enemy AI, all of the UI stuff and a lot more). There's a criminal lack of tutorials in this regard, and the ones that exist are massive copouts that only cover the bare basics. You'll pretty much have to watch guides made for Unity, Godot and Unreal, take note of how they build and structure the systems, and try to build it yourself (reading a book on C# will help with the technical challenges)Depending on how complex you want to make it, you could spend few hours on a simple one, or months learning in-depth C# functions and tricks to make a really deep one. Again, best advice would be to make something really simple, purely text-based even, then go more complex. Make a basic "2 guys dealing 1 damage to each other every turn", then give the bad guy more health, and then implement a feature to make the fight winnable, repeat until it's fun.If you don't want to go turn-cringe though, there's a shitload of resources for basically anything, and it's a lot easier and arguably more rewarding.Tutorials I mentionedhttps://learn.unity.com/project/creator-kit-rpghttps://learn.unity.com/project/2d-roguelike-tutorial - few years out of date but still good for understanding logichttps://learn.unity.com/project/ruby-s-2d-rpg - the long one
>>2598554IM4 has had me playing around with Godot. Also been working on some workflow things for the next Jam.
If your game didn't get over 100 downloads in under a month, it's objective shit and should be removed from the jam page.
>>2598648I honestly don't care if less than 10 people play my games, the main reason I make them is so I can come back in a year or two to play them. Anyone else enjoying my work is a plus and I want to be grateful for even the smallest amount of players.
I will play the jam games... TOMORROW! HAHAHAHAHAHA
it's hard to be 100% self-motivated.
>>259870399.99% is still good. Don't be so hard on yourself.
90% of my motivation in making things is that nobody else is making exactly what I want to see, but I'm glad if other people manage to enjoy whatever comes out of my brain. It's a little hard to believe sometimes that other people are playing video games made by me.
>>2598733That's why I love you guys, Just keep being you. It's fun here.
Sometimes I'm not even sure if I like playing video games anymore..
>>2598554>>2598648>>2598868Are you okay anon
Just woke up from a coma. Is it jam time yet?
>>2599034June 21. I will make one.
>>2599044Confirmed jam date hype.
Is there a way in MV to make the turn system like the action bar of final fantasy X? I like the idea of ATB because it gives the speed stat more weight, but waiting for the bar to fill and having the enemies load and instantly select their turns really breaks the deal to me
>>2599114If I can implement it in 2k3, you can make it happen in MV. Pretty sure that if you can't into coding it yourself, there's most likely a plugin that adds this sort of functionality.Not like the logic for it is particularly complex anyway>Get AGI values of all actors/store them to temp variables for turn calc use>+1 to those variables in a loop>Conditionals whenever they reach an arbitrary value trigger x actor's turn processing phaseIf anything, ATB/CTB style is simpler than the traditional turn-based all-at-once formula since you avoid having to account for stuff like targeting correction if the intended target is no longer alive/an eligible target at action execution time, action invalidation in the event an actor dies before they get to act, and so forth.
>>2599044>mfw I've been working on my next jam game since the last one endedMaybe I won't have to cut anything this time.
>>2599317For me it doesn't really matter how much I prepare, I always end up cutting my wrists anyway.
>>2599317>starting before the jam even announcedyou didn't finish the game
>>2599354our community had it comingno theme enforcement means people can make anything ahead of time and collect critical acclaim, while the true jammers get left in the dustme? I've been working on a project unrelated to a jam, that I might use as basis for the jam, but I'm doing it to learn, no unfair advantage intended, haha
Looks like we're now at a point where it's time to start setting up arbitrary rules to make it harder for everyone to participate. Very exciting. I honestly just fucking love sabotaging anonymous projects. Therefore I propose that usage of RPG Maker is banned from now on.
Fuck the jam. Just post your games here once it's done and I'll play it.
>>2599398Just make it possible for the entries to be rated/judged. I am willing to put $1 as prize.
>switch from 2k3 to MV>feels like I went from a tiny apartment to a huge manoryea I'm thinking motivation is back on the menu
>>2599398Do not like what this post is implying
>>2599637I was being facetious don't worry
>>2599423Fuck yeah.>no rpgmaker>no default graphics>no freeware music>collaboration is a must>game must reach 30 downloads on the first dayLooks like kino is back on the menu
Godot jam soon
How about a play the games jam
>>2599741I marathon'ed all Isekai Madnes games last week.
>>2599784Now review them
>>2599444Even my main project which is going to be at least 5 hours long?
>>2599786k>Isekai Madness 1Short and sweet, I like psychopathic characters so the main girls are right up my alley. I really appreciated the amount of choices I was given to make the final boss easier(or harder). 7/10>Isekai Madness 2Really got myself invested in making my scorpion stronger and flexing his poisonous gland against the losers on the streets. I was actually taken by surprise when the Licht King appeared out of nowhere 'cuz I legitimately forgot the game is about defeating him in the first place lol. It's too bad I couldn't beat all those losers before the time limit but oh well. 8/10>Isekai Madness the 3rdAn attempt was made.. 1/10>Isekai Madness 4Pretty good for a second godot project. I can't wait to see what he'll be able to do once he gets used to coding. 4.5/10
>>2599398>people can make anything ahead of time and collect critical acclaimI'd imagine there are better avenues to 'collect critical acclaim' than being a bad sport on an RPG Maker jam hosted on a mongolian underwater basket weaving forum
>>2599812I'll stop working on it until june 21st, being called a bad sport hurts me more than you could ever know
>>2594319good job bro
and so, it's begun...the lord of the flies environment has begun...
Remember how the first few jams had optional restrictions for games on top of the theme? What if we bring those back but make them more interesting than just the number of maps/enemies/etc?
>>2599820I already thought of one for the next jam, but if I reveal it now, it'll be pointless since the CHEATERS will know about it in advance.
Fuck it, I'm making my jam game now. If everyone's a cheater, then no one is.
It's with a heavy heart I announce my resignation from the /vrpg/ jam gang
>>2599823RPGU released early?!
>you (stinky cheater)>starts working on jam game before jam starts>me (based and fit)>starts working on jam game after jam ends
you can start your game now or you can wait for the announcement, you're still peaking at 11 dls
>>2599889Trying to make something in MZ without visustella plugins. They break some plugins with their hardcoded stuffThe Japanese plugins are based and most just work out of the box
>>2599864>he hasn't signed up for the early access alpha versions
>>2599889Going back to my abandon valentine game jam game. I don't the game to be top down anymore. I also want to use both dodads and parallax mapping. So I have to start from scratch asset wise and somewhat story wise. I redesigned to of the party members and have to change their sprites to reflect it.
>>2599923>mahou shoujo anon is back
Is anyone actually mad I started early
>>2599963Is there any way you'll be able to forgive me? *bats eyelashes*
>>2599889I started working on rebalancing and adding some new stuff on emsey ruins christmas a few days ago.
>>2599970But I loved you... :(
>>2599889i wrote down ideas in a text file and wrote sketches of characters, that's all
>>2599889I have ideas for a game I want to work on outside of the jams but I haven't actually done anything with it yet. The hardest part of my idea is figuring out the gameplay... right now I'm thinking it'll be a cross between a SRPG and a raising sim.
>>2599901Where do the Japanese sell their plugins? I was surprised to find a lot of Korean plugins. I can’t read Korean though so that kind of sucked, but it’s cool to know there’s a Korean RPGM community. I wonder if they make their webcomics into games. Solo Level and Reincarnation stuff.
Not only did I start MY projext early, I started YOURS early too!
>>2599980A mahou shoujo raising sim seems like a fun idea. I'll keep on my backlog for future jams.
>>2599981>Where do the Japanese sell their plugins?That's the best part: they don't. All of their plugins are MIT licensed, and I haven't seen any Japanese plugins that cost any money.You can find them on https://forum.tkool.jp and github (just search "maker mz")
>>2599869Btw by you i meant i
>>2599820One of them needs to be at least one sex scene
>>2600142Why do you think the game starts off with a fade to black?
I'm bored at work should I write a crossover fanfic about the jam games
>>2600187Do whatever gives you pleasure, anon. Just don't forget to share it with us.
If Jet and Emelia Went on a Triple Date"Emelia, it's time to celibrate our 50th time having sex.""Aw, Jetty!" The brunette girl hugged the robot's cold, steel arm, "But how are we gonna celibrate having our 50th sex?""Why look no further than over there, beep boop!"Jet is pointing to an emo guy getting his cock sucked by an emo girl in broad daylight."Damn shawty, ok!" Ian hollered."Hmph." Emelia cupped her chin, "Don't know about that one, Jetty. Celebratin' sex with sex would spoil it.""Then why don't we do what they're doing?"The robot points over to two girls, one blue haired and the other red haired. Between their legs, purple hair because they were scissoring."Wow Bronwyn it's great that Sleepy Hill allows people to have sex in broad daylight now that Sir Bright became based.""Right? They should change the name to Sexy Hill."I can't do this anymore

>>2600206>tfw received fanficThanks anon, I'll save it to a notepad file and treasure it.
>>2599044>June 21. I will make one.Hype! >>2599869>you're still peaking at 11 dlsI wonder how much that number would change if it's an eroge
>>2600315Auradev has 1k followers on itch iirc
>>2600364and $3.7k per month on patreon apparently
>>2600367>auradev makes more than I doMaybe I need to start doing h-games...
>>2600371doubt he was making that much with his original art. I bet the number spiked after he found an artist.
>>2600372Yeah I remember playing one of the older builds. But even with the programmer art I could tell the game had potential
>>2600255>already learning Unity to get a head on the gameSmart.
>>2600364>Auradev has 1k followers on itch iircNot really relevant for jam games here, but yea the idea is porn gets more DLs. Sex sells.>>2600371>Maybe I need to start doing h-games...You won't get very far if you're doing it just for the money. Even h-games need passion and discipline to be successful.
>>2600371Only if you either can draw, design or understand basic anatomy.Don't be like pic related.
>>2583298Can the jam maker see how many downloads a game gets?I was thinking of making a competition for a 100$ amazon gift card.The person with most downloads a week after jam ends would win.The games would have to stay in theme.All submissions would be invisible until the jam time ends to encourage doing your best instead of slapping together something asap to be the first one.The winner would need to provide a email they want their 100$ to be sent to.Is this a good idea?Im curious what 4chan would make with money on the line.
>>2600421As a prior organizer, nah, you can't. You can organize entries by most downloads to see what was popular, but also, the number goes up every time the game is downloaded even if the same person DLs it multiple times or even if you DL it yourself.
>>2600421Firstly I'm not giving you my personal information for a 100 USD giftcardSecondly measuring by downloads is a lame way to judge because someone can either shill offsite or download their own game multiple times.Thirdly turning the jam into a competition will spoil the community here. I don't think any of us are trying to compete, just share our work with others.
>>2600421>we'll finally get a porn game
>>2600421someone can use a bot to abuse the download count.just make it so people can rate it or get some judges, like goburinbro or something.
>>2600421>amazon gift card.No
>>2600421>The games would have to stay in theme.I'm not making your fetish game for a $100 gift card LMAO
I'm not against having the games get reviewed (I get excited over feedback even if it's negative) but I think making a contest out of them would be really bad. Ojosama blows my art out of the water, Goburinbro's a god at 2k3. I'll never be as funny as Iowacorn. The list goes on. Part of the reason why I participated in the first place was that the jams weren't competitive and anons would play my garbage anyways.
>>2600440How about making Ojosama,Iowacorn and Goburinbro as the 3 judges that rate games 1-10 instead of participants?Would you feel less intimidated?
>>2600442No because I still don't like comparing myself to others
Thread is turning cringe. This is what happens when there's no jam.
>>2600445idk anon the fanfic was pretty good
>>2600449>he can't even spell Emilia correctly
we should make the next theme gameplay oriented, like sokoban, board game or something.
>>2600458Im ok with that i was touched that someone even bothered lol
>>2600461Next theme should be non-rpg then
>>2600458>spells Bronwyn right but not EmiliaIf he somehow misspelled Ian I would've pissed myself
>>2600461Currency jam. Money in these games is always an afterthought. I want to see characters working their day jobs.
>>2600470has anyone ever seen a game scripted different currencies?
>>2600429>Firstly I'm not giving you my personal information for a 100 USD giftcardJust say you already know you would lose if it ever happened instead of calling email "personal information" to cope.>>2600427>>2600433yeah judges would be a better idea now that i think about it(if i can get anyone to judge it.)>>2600435what would be a better prize than a amazon gift card?(digital btw i am not going to send you an actual card in the mail to your house just a code you can type into amazon in a email message).>>2600437You're not making any game for anyone.
Winner of the next jam gets a sloppy blowjob from me
>>2600470Surprisingly good idea.
>>2600479>He doesn't know that if you search someone's email, you can find all accounts its connected toAs expected from a guy who thinks 100 dollars in amazon giftcards is a good prize.
>>2600479>You're not making any game for anyone.Not for a $100 gift card LMAO
Ok, time to stop being grumpy. Now i want you fellas to go back to your rooms and cool off for a bit.
>>2600484>He doesn't know that if you search someone's email, you can find all accounts its connected toSo just make a 2nd throwaway account not linked to anything?>>2600490You can just admit you dont know how to make a game.
>>2600499>You can just admit you dont know how to make a game.The only thing I'll admit is I'm not making a game for a fucking gift card LMAO
>>2600503You're not making a game ever.
>>2600508I'm not making a game for a gift card fuck off
>>2600499Not him but I wouldn't make a game for a gift card either. Gift cards are a dumb concept anyways, why are you giving me money but only for a specific place? I can't buy gas with that shit.
>>2600521>I can't buy gas with that shit.You can though.https://www.amazon.com/b?node=23868971011
>>2600528I only buy elf lubricants.
Anon should personally suck off whoever wins. It's the only way.
Winner of the jam gets to choose the theme for the next jam
>>2600535But what about the girls here?
>>2600540There are no girls on the internet, fool
>>2600479instead prize money, pay for the 4chan ads and maybe some 4chan pass.
If I win can I get a hug instead of whatever the prize is
Sure, post address
What do I put in my rpg maker game if I want to make big money?
>>2600587incest furry porn
>>2600402>Even h-games need passion and discipline to be successful.Check out f95 then come back and say that again. Actual asset rip, borderline illegal renpy trash gets hundreds of $ or more and the only reason devs get away with it is because they live in an eastern euro country and their patrons are middle-upper class Indians. I don't care about copyright at all but there's no passion for 95% of any game made outside of Japan. For some reason, the Japanese aren't as lazy and predatory.I mean, you could rip scenes from your favorite 3D porn, insert them as "endings", and make a shitty jigsaw puzzle or match 3 and probably get a couple hundreds dollars, maybe more if you promise to include more pornstars.>>2600445It's the feds, I'm telling you the FEDS are here, trying to destroy yet another community. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_CHAOSIn between jams, they sneak in (art student-kun, nwn, etc). Just ignore it. Who cares if people make games early? They've been doing it for over a year. Make a game, post it, play games, review it, share resources. That's all this should be about.
>>2600587hot ladies and whatever faggots like
>>2600649I took this post seriously until the 2nd half. Didn't realize we had THIS level of schizoposting in our humble rpg maker threads, but here we are I guess.
>>2600421Genuinely too high stakes not to have people trying to cheat. Also it's guaranteed to attract outsiders.
I actually want anons to start early if they don't plan on following the theme. Really the jams are just here to encourage anons to finish game and let them know that at least one person is going to play it.
>>2600675why is there Lord Hydaelyn Samson on that picture
Next jam the theme should be my fetishes and whoever includes the most gets a drawing of me shaking hands with them.
Dating sim where I can date all my favorite jam entrants!
>>2600689i am literally going to eat you is this okay (y/y)
Game where we simulate making real jam (making your PC run at max temperature for a couple minutes, then waiting few hours, before the ending cutscene plays).
>>2600689Haha you mean the characters and not the devs right? You don't even know what they look like...
>>2600668Yeah, the point of game jams to begin with is fostering productivity. Bringing the typical 4chanian turbonerd competitiveness into it will make people game the system and do whatever it takes to win, EXCEPT making the best game they can make.
>>2600694I’m not even sure if I know how to max your cpu with rpgm. I think rpgm slows way down before I can do anything intensive.
anyone know the logic to make character and certain events stick to the ground like in Lisa? parallel process event that keep moving player down doesn't work.
>>2600730Dingaling prolly did it by triggering an autorun event when interacting with certain tiles to create the illusion of Brad jumping.
>>2600730stick to the ground? i don't think there's any need for that. lisa works the same as any other rpg maker game: there are tiles where brad can go, and tiles where he can't. it's not a matter of physics, or the dev having programmed in gravity. it's merely programmed that if you walk off a cliff, brad does a movement where he goes through:on and jumps to the bottom of the screen, then the game ends. for the bike jumps, it's not gravity, it's just that if you walk off a cliff while on the bike, brad does a pre-specified jump across the gap (or off the cliff, if that's what you do).
>>2600730You can just make invisible events that block movement and then make a parallel event that moves the block with the player.
>>2600689I like it.
>>2600708just find a way to trigger a data leak
>>2600708if you call a script using scene_base it will cause massive lag and CPU usage.
Can RPG Maker be used to make more open ended RPGs? Ones with more choices similar to a classic cRPG?
>>2600421Your intentions are good. It's your money, you decide who deserves the gift card. I just think it would be easier to pay 100$ for the game, on itch.io itself.
I legit want a jam theme that pushes RPG way past its limit, to actually force people to go Godot or Unity.Like a Diablo clone or somehing
>>2600937>>2600938>implying the eventing gods in this thread wouldn't manage to use rpg maker anyway
>>2600949I know that's gonna happen and it gives plausible deniability to this thinly veiled anti-RPGM scheme.
>>2600937>implying I can't do it with eventingthose ruby codes are shortcut. I can do without them.
>>2600957The glove has been thrown. It's official then. No takebacks.
>>2600937Theres a guide on youtube how to recreate diablo in rpgmaker mv on youtube.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bzYvK6PguY
>>2600978I just wrote "on youtube" twice...
Would this general be appropriate for sharing RPG Maker adjacent stuff, like music and art etc.? Might be nice to also give theme ideas for these things for anons to contribute to, like a small jam, but for music, art, assets etc.>Music/Art Jam Theme: Ice Cavernsfor example, and anons can contribute fitting music/art for the setting. Maybe even stuff other anons could use in other full jams (if the creator is ok with that obviously). Thought it might be a nice idea to involve more people who are not solo devs and give everyone something to practice inbetween jams. Pic unrelated.
>>2601010>slowly turning into viprpg
>>2601067Just like God Intended
>>2600978Yeah? What about uhh, a THIRD person diablo clone, like Elden Ring
>>2601077I think it could be done probably by someone skilled enought considering people have made stuff like this in rpg maker mvhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gaUvk255co
>>2601114Found another one.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_fyRTqgftM
>>2601114>>2601123Is this fake?Can you really do stuff like this in rpg maker?
>>2601114>>2601123how the fuck do people do this shit with rpgmaker
>>2601114>>2601123Wow, these genuinely look like shit. Why would you bother? If you want something 3D like that, don't use RPGM.>>2601135>>2601132It's all done with plugins. 3DMV and others.
>>2601114>>2601123At this point, you're barely using the tools that RPG Maker gives you, that are supposed to make things easier. It's cool as a proof of concept, but anything more is just counter-productive.
>>2583298Didnt know rpg maker maps could look like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw_ba8mJETA
>>2601153It's pretty much two images imported, and no-go zones added on top of them.You can do anything in RPG Maker if you can think outside the box.
>>2601156then why do all games made in rpg maker look the same?
>>2601168Do you know why rpg maker is the probably the easiest game engine ever? It has a complete default asset.
>>2601114>someone recreated daggerfall in rpg makernice
>>2601168Children and mouthbreathers do not want to think outside the box. They want to make a game NOW and RPGM sells itself on that concept. Also, if you watched that Mistia video of someone doing the parallax mapping, look how fucking long it took to do one map - and that was sped up, too. Even with using a lot of default assets, it takes a lot of time to get them looking nice and consistent. Why bother when you can just bang a map out in half the time using just defaults, no image editing software or artistic experience required?
>>2601168Because RPG Maker is a niche. Try to make something with those graphics, you will get a bunch of "cool" comments from people who are starting with RPG Maker and that is it. RPG Maker community won't give a shit. Try to make a game without pron, horror, or le quirky earthbound ripoff, if you fail as well.
>>2601168Because rpgmaker is made for retards that cant draw or code thats the entire point of the program so even the most retarded person can slap together a shitty game out of premade assets and maybe make a unique sprite for the main character or something(optional).
>>2601168Do they have to look different?
>>2601204Isekai animes are very successful despite all of them being basicly the same anime except for the girls in the main characters party(whos a bland looking incel with medium lenght dark hair until he travels to another world and becomes the worlds strongest so people watching can self insert) so clearly things dont have to be unique to be successful but i think its a bit boring personally.
>>2601114>FPS 16>For what looks worse than a n64 gameNice memes
Since when do people in these threads care about what rpgm games look like?
>>2601225I'm telling you, it's the feds
>>2601229based rpgmakerjams threads loremaker
>>2601229Shit./pol/ is leaking into vrpg.
The thread is turning into liquid shit, it's time to seriously set the next jam theme.
>>2601225Both yesdevs and nodevs, but particularly the latter, have this shared zeitgeist where the thought that "rpg maker gaem no real gaem" reigns supreme. For the last 100-ish posts, this thread has been taken over by that sentiment. Even people that have renounced those words still can't get completely rid of it. The talk of graphics is merely a symptom of it. Give in to it and the next step is Unityfags storming right in.
>>2601250>next jam is June 21Summer again?
>>2601261>Summer>but it’s in the North PoleYou will get your fur coats, boats and goggles! You will also get an onsen.
>>2601261Nah it's gonna be the Mechs vs Dinos jam.
>>2601250Heat.>can be applied to summer>can be applied to porn>can be applied to many other things
>>2601250Precious gems and jools, shiny trinkets, and treasure jam
These threads shouldn't be made unless a jam is in progress. And I'm being unironic.
>>2601325Nice, I can make my gay porn game with this!
>>2601325Cool.I can use one of the games i already made about futa women and muscular men with vaginas.
>>2601335Why yes I'm a Love Live chad, how could you tell?
>>2601325Plz plz plz whoever decides the theme choose this one.
Next theme will be Handholding. Degenerates and the mentally ill back the fuck off.
From what I've seen, looks like the fitting theme would be "Giant"Anything goes as long as it's huge. Giant robots, giant dinosaurs, gigantic sums of money, giant beaches, gigantic pregnant males, whatever. Make anything you like, and make it so big that it would awe the players.
>>2601364Giant filesize. I'll load it up with blu ray rips of public domain media, splilt into over 9000 rars to fit the 2GB upload limit on itch
Next jam is definitely gonna be a /d/ themed one, won't it?
500 replies reached. Someone make a new jam and post the link in the new thread.
I hope you're all being ironic.
>>2601379Having no jam is worse than sensory deprivation in terms of how it affects a man's sanity, anon.
>>2601379no, we're artists. being mentally deranged is crucial trait to be proficient in our craft
>>2601379Dont know about others but im not i unironicly want a male pregnancy themed jam.
>>2601398I don't like the theme personally but if I had to make one I'd probably twist the interpretation so hard. Something like "through immaculate conception by God Himself, you are born and tasked to descend to the 7 circles of hell to defeat 7 sons of Lucifer"
>>2601406https://imgur.com/a/5xMyNOf (since the filesize is too big to upload directly)but it's still outdated

how long do /viprpg/ jams usually last?
>>2601617i think they usually just have 3 big game dumps per year, with people uploading demos and smaller shitpost games directly into the thread whenever they feel like. not 100% sure though.
>>2601624Aren’t ours similar in that we dump spring, summer and winter? That’s neat.
>>2601624>>2601632There should be 4 major jams a year:>spring, summer, autumn, winter>fire, water, earth, air>north, south, east, west>boreas, zephyrus, notus, eurus
>>2601656w-what would an Aeolus jam imply?
>>2601656I think autumn gets low numbers due to end of year fatigue or something.
>>2601669Aeolus could be an Odyssey based jamAlso, possibly wincest>This Aeolus and his family lived on the floating island of Aeolia which was surrounded by a wall of unbreakable bronze and smooth rocks. In order to preserve concord and affection among his children, Aeolus yoked his sons and daughters in matrimony. Being a favorite of the gods, he spent all his days in feasting and banqueting with his wife and children. Luxuries never failed in their happy place.Boreas>The Greeks believed that his home was in Thrace, and Herodotus and Pliny both describe a northern land known as Hyperborea "Beyond the North Wind" where people lived in complete happiness and had extraordinarily long lifespans. He is said to have fathered three giant Hyperborean priests of Apollo by Chione.Zephyrus>He was said to be the husband of Iris, goddess of the rainbow. He abducted the goddess Chloris, and gave her the domain of flowers.>Additionally, with yet another sister and lover, the harpy Podarge (also known as Celaeno), Zephyrus was said to be the father of Balius and Xanthus, Achilles' horses.Notus>He was associated with the desiccating hot wind of the rise of Sirius after midsummer, was thought to bring the storms of late summer and autumn, and was feared as a destroyer of crops.>>2601676That's funny because Eurus is also a loser in mythology so I assigned him to autumn anyways out of pity.>the only one of these four Anemoi not mentioned in Hesiod's Theogony or in the Orphic hymns.but>He is referred to as the “savior of Sparta” in a Homeric paean, or poem.
>>2601483Who the fuck here is a girl and why
>>2600730>anyone know the logic to make character and certain events stick to the ground like in Lisa?Tileset gets setup so that only the left/right movement options are allowed on the walking surfaces. Every other tile blocks player movement entirely. This does most of the work of keeping the player character confined. If you were to make a map filled with walls, then create 1-tile passages through that map... that's what it would look like with the art removed.As for 'jumping' in a lisa styled RPG, there are two types; button-press to simulate climbing or jumping, and automatic that simulates gravity.simulated gravity is just an on-touch event that's above an open space in the map (still surrounded by blocking tiles) that switches code page to an autorun which: changes the player's facing and sprite to a falling version, disables collision on the player, moves the player down a number of tiles with a sound effect, plays another sound effect on "impact" at the stopping point and changes the sprite back to normal, then switches code pages on the event back to on-touch to wait for the next activation.simulated climbing or jumping by active button press can be done in a dynamic way where the player's location is tracked and then compared to player facing and a tile ID the player is either "facing" or touching (or is handled on a per-event basis instead of tile ID) or is done automatically like with the simulated gravity event.
