Been working on a game with a friend. I was doing the plot, gameplay, map design and music while they did art and tilesets; was going great until they started doing less and less. Now I'm working on everything, and I suck at drawing.

They're not obligated to work on the game, let alone put in the same amount of time as me. It's just a passion project, after all. But how do I tell them I'm hiring commissioners without hurting their feelings? I just want to finish this game and have it out.

my game isn't actually officially divided into "chapters", but I refer to each big stretch of the game before a main boss fight as a chapter for the sake of setting realistic development goals. most people cleared the demo in around an hour or two, and the demo's content was more or less the entire first chapter. given that my plan is for it to be the shortest one, I'd say each chapter should take players around 3 hours give or take

Found this cool Blackjack mini-game script for VX Ace but I am trying to find a way to add items (Poker Chips) after you win.

The script and mini-game can track win/loss ratio so i'm wondering if there's a syntax or something that can add an item after it. Anyone got any ideas? Trying to look for RMVXA help online is like a needle in a haystack.
>>
I've been toying around with Ao Oni style chases in VXA, so far I've figured out how to create the illusion of being chased room from room, and I've also managed to get a functioning "searching" that's kinda like Tyrant in REmake2 (in truth it's entirely abstracted), and random ambushes for when the killer gets tired of wandering.

Not touched RPG Maker in years. Biggest problem I run into is how I need to use a map template for chase maps otherwise numbered events go haywire.

here thanks. from 2016 it is. you'll need 7-Zip to open the rar file to open it in vx ace. nice someone made this, as a gift!

fun on it's own but a syntax line to add an item or gold will make the win/loss stand out.
>>
Which rpg maker version do you guys currently use and why?
>>
>>2710658
VX Ace because I am an unstable individual and my nostalgia and familiarity directly affects my opinion of it
Similarly, 2003 is utter complete fucking trash for me because, as a kid, I tried it as my first RPG Maker and I didn't know what to do, even though today I could use it just fine.
>>
>>2710379
>I've also managed to get a functioning "searching" that's kinda like Tyrant in REmake2 (in truth it's entirely abstracted), and random ambushes for when the killer gets tired of wandering.
Would you mind going into a bit more detail on these mechanics? That sounds interesting and potentially relevant to my project.
>>
>>2710700
The searching is basically a mode where the creature is inactive, but it's X distance away from you. X shifts by a random value and plays a sound (The closer the louder), and when it hits a specific value it spawns it and gives chase. Like I said, completely abstracted.

As for the random ambush, it's a bit more complicated but still straightforward. under certain conditions the monster will go into "lurk mode" (in my toybox it's when its distance hits -2). Near every ambush point is an ambush trigger that is directly in front of it, and it takes three random steps and then teleports back to its initial location using scripts. If you touch the trigger, the monster spawns. This allows it to jump out of closets and etcetera. The random steps means that it's very possible to walk by the ambush spot, and when backtracking through the room you hit it for real.

I'd toss you what I have but I've broken a bunch of things as you do.

What do you guys think of my combat UI? (Background, HP and MP bars are all animated. Im purposley using an older screenshot with old art assets so i cant have my new shit stolen)
>>
>>2710897
Text is too small, there's a ton of unused real estate, multiple fonts make it painful to look at and your battlers having different artstyles to your characters I think is a fundamental visual issue. The "ultra" bar also looks like it's positioned/indented weirdly. I see what you're going for but right now it just looks really messy.
>>
>>2692487
So, I am working on my game and I noticed I put way too much thought into the system. Problem: the game still does not look very good. I am using assets I am finding online, but the characters are a bit cookie cutter. Is there any reasonable course of action I can take not to make the game look generic while at the same time not commissioning an artist? I can't do art either so that's not an option.
>>
>>2710989
Learn to do art.
>>
>>2710911
This is true, thanks for the fresh set of eyes anon. I've already tackled the font size issue and I'm going to be redoing the party members as pixelart soon. The other UI elements are all pixelart now too. Not sure what to do with the empty space since it can be occupied by more enemies in fights involving them. It's certainly maturing
>>
>>2711097
It's not even the font size that's most egregious, it's that you use multiple fonts apparently completely arbitrarily. It looks flat-out bad, man.
>>
>>2710897
The photoshop brush used for the borders is too low res, the use of gradients look too cheap, all the character portraits should be from the same perspective, and the lack of a cohesive color scheme is distracting (one too many colors).
>>
>>2711106
There's only 2 fonts in the image, and I've already replaced the non-pixelart font with a bold version of the small font. Posting an older image was a bad idea
>>
>>2711142
Especially because you don't want people "stealing ur art". No offense, but that seems pretty egotistical to me.
>>
>>2711142
Pretty bad idea yeah. "Hey can you give feedback on this image, btw the feedback you're liable to give I've already done" is kind of a weird move.
>>
>>2711142
The issue with the font is that one is pixelated, and the other is not.
>>
>>2710658
2k3 for quick testing of ideas and usual jerking around
VXA is the main choice because it has basic scripting but without totally ditching the event system, a few features that are missing in later versions (one of the picture effects) and also has better resolution options for both the art and the screen.
>>
>>2710879
What do you think could be improved? I'm not much of an artist, more of a writer and music guy.

Does anyone have experience porting a project from an older version of MV (1.5) to a newer one (1.6)

>>
>>2710740
None of this is as difficult as it sounds though.
>make a list of your cards and assign them arbitrary variables, obviously in some sort of order
>>Sword = 01, Shield = 02, etc
>Any and all effects of these cards are checked against a lookup table in the form of a series of Conditional Branches, executed any time a card effect is invoked
>augmented by other conditions which check for modifiers, but this is easy
>Deck/hand/battle variables can be their own variable array which is only dealt with on a temporary basis, during battles
>this will depend on the size of your hands/fields/etc
>ex. V101~200=player/foe decks (assuming 50 cards each), V201~300 for field variables and hands which you point around/through for selection, targeting, damage/effect calc, etc.
>other more permanent stuff like player deck, inventory, etc, can be its own array
>example: V[1001~1050]=Current Deck (each variable=card ID)
>card inventory itself could literally just be the quantities of each card since you don't need to account for ID in a fixed-order library. Bonus points if you incorporate the have/don't have flag into the variable
>V[2001]=quantity of card ID 1. If 0, you just don't have it, if you have acquired it, 1000+quantity in inventory.
The most difficult part would be designing the AI since there are a large number of possibilities for what you might want/expect/etc the enemy to do, and programming them to put strategies to use will take you more time than any of the structural/design stuff by an incredible amount.
It's all a lot of work, but none of the logic for it is THAT hard.

Mind to hear my elevator pitch for a project I am working on.

voidpunk style game set in far future of our universe (in the middle of heat death) following the lonely journey of a single passenger of rusty ship that time forgot, probably the last living being in corpse that became of the universe, leaving our protagonist with time to ponder and get into ''cryogenic'' deep sleep where he will explore the absurd world of his own mind.

I have a question about something minor. Is it possible to make the player character jump in an event without having player followers also jump into the same position as the party leader? I'm trying to do an event where your player can destroy roadblocks and I want the player character to jump to give a bit of visual feedback but it looks weird as shit with the problem I mentioned. Otherwise it looks like I'll have to either have to disable player followers or get rid of the jumping action. Pic related is the event logic.

How should I make an area with poison gas and where you take X damage for each step (like poison swamp) but which you can negate by equipping a gas mask?

I can think of ways but I feel like I'm missing some easier and simpler way to implement this.
>>
>>2716503
Equipment should have an SP-Paramenter for Floor Damage you can set to 0%.

But the catch here is that "Floor Damage" is indiscriminate.
So you make a Gas Mask to prevent swamp damage. But it'll also prevent lava damage, spike damage, ect...

Also Floor Damage is hilariously hard coded as something -10hp
Which makes the SP-Paramenter % absolutely R E T A R D E D
>>
>>2710568
But what if I don't want to use that dumpster fire of MZ?

Best way without the drawbacks >>2716525 mentioned is probably to have a common event run as a parallel process that gives you an invisible state with the floor damage parameter only in the rooms with gas in it and only if you wear the gas mask.

And about the hardcoded floor damage, that's an easy to solve problem by simply going into the script editor and changing a number.

Say 'hey, I know you're busy and this game can't be your main priority right now, so I was wondering if you'd mind me paying for some art to speed things along a little?'
Other things you can do -
Say you'll pay for it.
Say you'll be commissioning background art/tilesets/other relatively 'generic' things and that you still want your friends stuff front and center (assuming they're mostly done with the key stuff).
Talk about how you feel like having to do the art is sapping your enthusiasm or say you want to maintain your momentum so you can finish it (i.e. make it a 'you' problem).
Or you could just get some free assets from itchio and use them as placeholders instead of investing your own time in doing something you're bad at.

Simply put I think the issue is that the "landmark" titles (if you can call obscure freeware games "landmark") were made in a much simpler time when the internet wasn't so rampantly commercialized and easy to use tools for making games and sharing them with people was a complete novelty. That's not really the case anymore; most people making games now are doing so to make money and that's changed the scene quite a bit. It's not all for the worse, LISA was probably the big showcase that you can make money off of an RPG Maker game and it's one of the best games made with the engine, as far as games made with MV go Fear & Hunger is fantastic and I expect its sequel, Termina, will be even better. It's undeniable that the scene has changed with the times though. This doesn't even just go for the RPG Maker either, I want you to try to imagine something like Higurashi or the early Windows Touhou games coming out today looking and being as rough around the edges as they were when they first released and becoming extremely popular.

What do you think is important in a main character story arc?

It seems to me, when they're not lacking a voice (as a silent protag would) they'll still be lacking a social life. I mean, they're still social but they're nobody and meeting everyone for the first time or something.
Personally, I find the majority of JRPG protags to be unsatisfying.

A personal goal. Personal steaks.
But that can be hard to work into a globe trotting JRPG campaign. When a Dark Lord casts a shadow on the land it will most directly affect the King or some Royal Family. Because it's their domain he's messing with.
Moving away from that, there's more and more degrees of separation.
How does a peasant get involved? Maybe the Dark Lord commands undead, or goblins. The goblins raid and rape a village. Kidnapping the peasant's sister, cousin, wife what have you.
Maybe the peasant's father is among the ranks of the undead. His reanimated corpse holds the answer to a burning question.
That's something to go after.

The furthest degree of separation might involve a foreigner from a distant land, or other world. Maybe a time traveler. All they want is to avoid attention - but for the sake of the story you know that's not going happen. They'll be seen as a threat, or the next target. A catalyst for change. Some savior mentioned in a prophesy, legend, scripture.
They could be exiled from their old home, hopeful this could be their new one. They could have a chip on their shoulder about people rejecting or accepting him.
In their darkest hour, maybe they learn they aren't "the chosen one" after all. They get what they wanted from the start - be be ignored and dismissed. But now too much has happened, they can't just walk away. Now they're going to do something they shouldn't. Build a nuke, fuck the timeline, fuck the "order of the universe" because it fucked with them.

Hello fellow de/v/s,
here’s a screen from the game I’ve been working on with MissingSeven, the dude who brought you Theia: the Crimson Eclipse, Nec[H]roma, 5th Era, Tales of Banalia and stuff like that. But this one’s just a short dungeon crawler thing, we whipped it up for the IGMC 2022
Link for those who want to try it out: https://missingseven.itch.io/ouroboros

Gameplay-wise: it’s a dungeon crawler with a twist, characters age or get older every six turns, so the combat is a chaotic mess and I love it. Plus there’s like two bosses with unique mechanics, equipment-based skills, and some movement-pattern minigames

I think that's a difference between western and eastern philosophies.
I say "western" I should say "English".
I think English people put a lot of focus on knowing a character.

I see Japanese and French people put more focus on emotions and relationship dynamics. Japan has these archetypes like "Tsundere" which isn't really a character, but an attitude a character has towards another character.
Say, a character really likes another character but they try really hard to hide it, to the point they're the opposite of affectionate around them.

You can see this in old medieval "Chivalry" tales written by the French. A knight fights off some ruffians. The damsel refuses to acknowledge the knights deeds. "That wasn't you. They tripped into water. I was saved by the river; not you. Where did you learn to swing a sword anyways? A kitchen?"

I think an English reader/writer would beg the question "Why are you like this?" "Who are you when you're alone?"

The problem with Shinji is that he had a verbal tick, a way of thinking that doesn't get translated consistantly.
In English he says "I'm so fucked up"
But in Japanese it more like "I'm the lowest", it's a comparative statement. He doesn't see himself outside of a collective. He's always part of a set of something...of humans, of men, of pilots.
So the mental gymnastics he goes through just to grasp the concept of "I" is rather absurd.

The issue with eva and shinji(posters) is the lack of any productive alternatives to both the lifestyle or philosophy they have chosen seen or explained in the show. It's mistakenly taken as a celebration of the loser archetype even though Hideaki has went on multiple statements that claim the opposite. That your life is filled with choices. That is crucial to understand, that it is a choice that he and you make by continuing to wallow in self-pity, negative and backwards introspection that labors on the musings of identity and self-actualization when you barely have any willpower or courage to do anything at all. You choose to blame society, circumstances, others, anything and anyone but yourself for the choices that you make, daily. It's a vicious cycle of self-doubt, inadequacy and personal subjugation of guilt and shame that most young impressionable boys never escape.

That should be the moral and essence of the character, with the solution being simply put-
stop being a little bitch. Get your life together, be accountable and responsible towards yourself and grow to experience the fruits of this experience that is called life. Until you do, you will always be numb to it.

And for those that blame society for example. Society is a reflection of your negligence, ignorance and lack of any meaningful contribution to your fellow man or local community. You deserve the hell you've chosen for yourselves through inaction, hopelessness and a faux sense of intellectualism bordering on cowardice. Don't hide behind a veil of superiority, irrational fear is more damaging and sick than anything any society has done to you, or rather hasn't(in your case because you are a coward that lives through proxy). You are a coward. You hide from life and God(not in the biblical sense but the divine power of self within you). Elaborate cowardice nothing more.

Society existed before you were born. But this is the perfect example of people identifying with something that is outside of themselves.

In French chivalry novels, there is the metaphorical place known as the "Perilous Chapel". To understand the metaphor you need to know that a church is not a building but the community around the building. A collective noun. While a Chapel is a building with no set congregation. So when a knight walks into this perilous chapel they are free to identify with whatever collective they choose. The word "collective" is unfair because it draws attention to the state of singularity and plurality. Which nullifies the conflict all together.
Lancelot walks into a chapel (alone), and a conflict of interest arises from the different collective he belongs to. Where favoring one means betraying another. He's a son, he's a brother, a friend, a lover, a champion, a dream, a saint. And when he walks out of there, he's going to be a disappointment to someone! But again, he's alone. The only person he needs to worry about is himself, his own well being.

In the French superhero cartoon, Ladybug and Cat Noir, they do this with Cat Noir. He is a son, a friend, a side-kick, a boyfriend. The conflict is perceivable, but it's unreal at times. To the point that there is a fan theory that Cat Noir is some kind of artificial construct.

if you work all day and you genuinely remain open-minded for learning and trying out different things in order to learn, if you challenge yourself constantly and have a solid consistency of both your workflow and the level of goals that you achieve on a regular basis, then around a year sounds like a good estimation

if you just dabble into it, don't take it seriously, don't put in the time and effort, sit on 4ch all day, then you will become bitter, depressed and this could extend to more than a decade of misery and low quality of life

pixel art isn't even as hard as any other medium of art, it also lends itself to a lot of ambiguity where it doesn't even matter if you study all of the art fundamentals either, that's why so many people do it. If you want to get to the end result of having great skill and pieces then
1. Learn to enjoy the process
2. Take it seriously
3. Put in the time and effort
4. Challenge yourself constantly
5. Achieve goals rather than mindless grind

My country has no welfare, even though it says otherwise. As for the soulless parasite thing, sure - never been a fan of blind altruism anyway.

>And then you wonder and blame why society is going down the shitter as you contribute absolutely nothing.
Imagine contributing to relatively legal pyramid schemes and genuenly thinking that your unpaid labor helps those that are perpetually kept in misery by your "employer" to facilitate further money laundering and corruption. Society "goes to shit" all the time and always will thanks to constant shift of goalposts perpetuated by structures designed to combat these going-to-shits, all the while the general level of life improves thanks not to said structires but to the technological and medical advancements.

In theory "The Backrooms" is just like any other dungeon.
The burning question in most dungeon crawlers, that I've played, is the backstory of how this place came to be.

So for the backrooms, Kane Pixels' videos puts forward the idea that is was created as a storage solution. But then something went wrong.

Other takes on it are that reality is a virtual simulation and the backrooms are out-of-bound zones generated from garbage data. Or something.

The problem with the later one is how to inform the player, or even the player characters, of that reality. The creepypasta just tells you that in prose. But that's not really the style in for visual media. We'd prefer exposition from an informed character - but why would a character know? how would they know?

Another structure issue is that most backroom videos are made in the "found footage" format, following a lost character. They find something interesting or terrifying. And then their fate is unknown unless/until it gets a callback in another video. Creating an anthology.

That's not typical for Rpgs. Although I have seen games change the point-of-view regularly. But eventually their storylines would have to converge.

On second thought. Dungeons are usually a seat of power. They contain something to rewrite the world. Or they're connected to some nexus or source.

I feel that's not in the spirit of the backrooms. They're a "liminal space" horror. Like, you'd find the opposite of power inside. Just wasted space. Rot. Missing socks.

There's a lot that can be said about liminal spaces. And what affects people's nerves. Veils of deception and such.

It's very very similar to MV, most of the benefits (namely performance) can be achieved by using a newer version of nw.js, mapping is still inferior to XP and forces you to use 48x48 tiles (there is a plugin that is available for MV that lets you use an external mapping program and use any tile resolution, 16x16, 32x32, whatever you want), all the borderline mandatory plugins (yanfly among others) have been paywalled and on top of that have been obfuscated which kills compatibility with other plugins (this has basically killed the plugin ecosystem for MZ), RPG Maker Unite is coming out very soon™ and looks to be far superior than MV and MZ anyway.
tl;dr no real advantages over MV and many disadvantages, you're better off sticking with MV or an earlier version or waiting for Unite which in theory should be out at some point in the coming months.

Rest of it is true, what the actual fuck Yanfly? And MZ is lacking so many basic functions like self variables and additional conditions it feels like Yan and friends are literally paying Enterbrain into NOT including it.

I have no fate in Unite.
I will stick with Ace.
>>
>>2725983
Okay I wasn't aware about that, a lot of steam reviews I saw around launch were complaining about 48x48 tile size, that is a very welcome change since using an external mapper is not an elegant solution.

>>2725984
Yeah honestly that's viable, it's nice being able to make something with Ace and earlier and know it'll run on absolute toasters, the main disadvantage IMO is the inability to do pixel perfect upscaling at fullscreen resolutions even with something like mkxp-z forcing you to either deal with ugly scaling artifacts or have a bilinear filter over everything. This is something that 99% of people either don't notice or don't care about, it just bugs the shit out of me. If anyone here knows of a solution for this I'd love to know.

>>
>>2726008
More powerful mapping and organization tools, easier to work with different assets (>>2726028 heard wrong, tile size in unite will be 96x96 which allows you to use both 32x32 and 48x48 tilesets at pixel perfect upscaling, they've already released a free upscaling tool that does it for you if you don't have another program to do it), performance *should* be superior to MV/MZ since it's built on a proper game engine and not webapp runtimes - despite its reputation unity's performance with 2D games is completely fine in the hands of a competent developer, whether or not unite is being made by a competent developer remains to be seen.

>>2725861
Maybe it does and maybe it doesn't. You know those old school publishers would just slap on box art and some text in the manual that might not actually reflect what's in the game.

According to the manual, you play as a rouge who has long forgotten their own name in their quest for the Amulet of Yendor. Of course this is contradicted as soon as you start the game and name your character.
The amulet was created by magicians to remind mankind of "their origins". So there's different ways you can interpret that. Like, it's going to help the Rouge remember it's name? maybe verify a bloodline, maybe evidence that women truly are from Venus? Or by "their origins" it meant the Magicians' origins, who knows?
The amulet was stolen by the Dungeon Lord (No reason given) - from the Magicians who created it, presumable. Because the Magicians' magic will revive "true seekers of the amulet" from death. But the Dungeon Lord rearranges the dungeon and sends them back to the beginning.
This is B.S. because the "Dungeon Lord" doesn't actually appear in the game. Also the manual text says the rouge entered a cave, by rolling away a moss covered rock. And only use "dungeon of doom" metaphorically.
The rouge passes the remains of others that died, but apparently they weren't "true seekers" because they didn't revive?
If you actually find the amulet and get out, the game says the rouge just sold it for money...

I think the original idea was that, once you step into the dungeon, the entrance would be hidden or forgotten, so finding the amulet is the only way out.

Maniacs for VX Ace?
>>
>>2726114
Every time I look at Maniacs it makes me seriously consider switching to 2003. See, here's my problem.

2003: Maniacs, has features later ones removed for no reason in default program.
VX Ace: Fuckton of scripting and resources, I'm mildly proficient in Ruby.
MV: Also has lots of scripting and resources but old resources and VX scripts are completely incompatible because Javascript, system reqs UP+++++
MZ: The big script creators paywalled their stuff and don't even release a demo of their scripts with simple functions, so I'd end up spending money on something that MIGHT work, MV scripts incompatible

I don't even want to make an RPG, I want to make something like Corpse Party.
>>
>>2726126
How about Wolf RPG Editor?
>>
>>2726131
RPG Mismanaged creators spit out their dummies and capsize their prams if you use their resources in anything but RPG Mismanaged, and I inherited a lot of the DLC from my late friend.
>>
>>2726126
I mean, the first ever Corpse Party game had party system and a boss fight. Kind of.
If you do not want combat and just walking and puzzles, you can use any version of the engine. I think even Towelket man now makes games in MV while still doing his primitive pixel art for everything.

>>2726131
Wolf is cool but requires a lot of creating/tweaking of basic systems and formulas before you start making levels. It is flexible but not in a "plug and play" way. Makes you anxious.
>>
>>2726140
>and just walking and puzzles
I ran into the following issues when making the basic aspects of my game

- Needed to create a plugin to check individual digits in a variable for a lockpicking minigame.
- Needed to find a plugin to give self-variables to doors so they could have consistency for said minigame.
- The simplest way to indicate searching or effects (battle animations) could be exploited to render you immune to the slasher for a few seconds.
- There is absolutely no way to apply the effect of a battle skill to a hero outside of battle.
- Needed to find a pathfinding plugin to replace the dogshit that is RPG Maker pathfinding.
- Needed to completely rebuild a mechanic because holding down a button is polled every frame and there is no way to digitally release it.
- Needed to find a plugin to customize slip damage since I decided to run on single-digit HP but rare damage
- Needed to find a plugin to reuse events that reoccur on m- you get my point.

The point is that many of these should be fucking basic features and not a paywalled plugin.
>>
>>2725888
See though that's what I find appealing about WRPGE, I much prefer the idea of building all the stats and damage formulas and everything myself vs. RPGM where you are given a system and you'd better like it, because getting it to do what you want if you don't like it is a monstrous pain in the ass.

Jesus christ Wolf is like a fighting game guide filled with frame data and X/Y hitbox info, it's everything I want but I can't wrap my head around it. I mean, yeah in my early RPG Maker days it took me a bit to understand even simple things but this is like loading up someone else's RPG savefile and finding yourself in an area you don't recognize, he's doing a Lv1 challenge, and the protagonist is nowhere to be seen.

Even just playing the sample game I can tell this is what I want. Now I know how Griffith feels about his castle.

Then nobody would go in the first place. Unless they fell in by accident, like the backrooms. But that leaves the same narrative conundrum. If there was something in the backrooms that let you out, how would people know about it.

>that VN
The most unforgettable horror porn game I've ever played. No other game had a bunch of elementary schoolers gangbang a teenage girl against a wall. And the teenage girl loved it. No other game I've played had a 17 year old bishonen guy drink a 14 year old girl's piss and chase her down the hall to rape her, only to wind up getting anally raped by a 32 year old fat man. I still remember the scene where a 16-17 girl was hiding under a bed as her same age best friend was having sex with that same 32 year old fat guy on top. She heard every moan, bed shake and sound. In the wrong end she was discovered under the bed by her friend and made to join. A most terrifying scene was when an unwilling girl relives another girl's sex memories. The girl in the memory consented but the reliving girl didn't. It didn't matter that she was mentally screaming, her body in the memory did all the motions and actions as in history. It's like mind control rape except the victim was fully aware. Another scene the same girl and a friend were almost raped in a magic sex ritual, saved by the girl's older sister, and the backlash made the older sister want to rape her younger sister and friend.

The loli in this pic is freakishly lewd and once disguised herself as a teenage girl, fucked a boy until he nearly came, transformed back saying
>You thought you were having sex with a highschooler weren't you? I'm an elementary schooler all along!
And leglocks that boy, forcing him to cum inside her unprotected, when he screams in fear upon learning this. This isn't even getting into the tentacles, the gay sex, the lesbian sex, the incest, the sequel's mother/daughter lesbian scene, etc. The first chapter alone contains lots of lesbian sex scenes with an unavoidable girl masturbating in the bathroom. Truly horror is intrinsically connected with sexuality.

Only in my case, it's just giving the player character a goal.
I've brought it up on some other forums. But they all operate by adventure game logic. The player will move the character where ever they're allowed. They make not attempt to justify the characters actions.

That works for side quests. The world is ending - play slots at the casino.
But when it's a main quest, you can't just accidently trip over a god relic in a room the character had no business being in.

Treat your illness, noose, pills, gun, doesn't matter, it'll be better than the way you are right now.
>>
>>2723060
Thanks for asking for advice. That being said, you'll never make it with that mindset, because you will never be good enough for anything if you don't make anything. I don't know what kind of mental illness possesses people on this earth to just delay beginning with anything creative, but it's not the way to go. You don't do practice before you start making assets, you practice as you make assets. You don't fucking spend a year brainlessly putting pixels together and get good enough to make a game, you either make shit with a goal in mind, like a character, or an area, or even just a single building or object, or you let your hand guide you and just create something out of your ass then give it purpose post-creation.
Accept the fact you're a lost little child in terms of expertise and that your first attempts at it are not going to be very much good... then fucking do it anyway. Even if it looks like a very compressed scribble, don't scrap it, cherish it. You can always improve pixel stuff later.
Also I'd suggest starting with ms paint, other programs have plenty of quality of life features, and transparency REALLY helps with animation, but if you can't make pixel art with ms paint, you just can't make pixel art. That's your filter, and if you can't get past it, cheat.
So tldr, the answer is now, the answer is to just start now.
>>

It's the index of a string.
stringName[0]
stringName[1]
stringName[2]

$gameActors._data[1]._name[0].toUpperCase() == "R"

^in a conditional branch, with Actor1 named "Reid", this would return true.
.toUpperCase() will convert lower case letter for simpler logic. Idk if you'd have different pictures for "r" and "R"

If you name the files "r.png" or "R.png" you might just showpicture by script call rather than with the event commands.

$gameScreen.showPicture(pictureId, name, origin, x, y, scaleX, scaleY, opacity, blendMode);

So you'd replace the picture name with $gameActors._data[1]._name[0]

$gameScreen.showPicture(1, $gameActors._data[1]._name[0], 0, x, y, 100, 100, 255, 0);
$gameScreen.showPicture(2, $gameActors._data[1]._name[1], 0, x, y, 100, 100, 255, 0);
$gameScreen.showPicture(3, $gameActors._data[1]._name[2], 0, x, y, 100, 100, 255, 0);
$gameScreen.showPicture(4, $gameActors._data[1]._name[3], 0, x, y, 100, 100, 255, 0);

Boom. 4 show picture commands, automatically set to the Actor's first 4 letters.

(though I like how powerful the mimic feels in this episode, I want to use that for a game where you control a lot of replaceable dudes)

3 and 4 digit numbers feel smooth, 1 and 2 digit numbers feel crunchy and powerful. It makes losing 12 HP a big deal.

Having heard a lot about tabletop RPGs from the old /tg/, I like the impression I get that tabletop games do not fuck around. A starting wizard can have like 4 hp, traps can cause instant death, the language different characters can speak has a major role in who you can even talk to... it's rad. You get the distinct impression the world is not waiting on you.

Half of it is in the quantity and placement of encounters; if you're going to have a low number of encounters each should feel significant and dangerous (think LISA which has almost entirely unique encounters many of which can be quite difficult if you don't know what you're doing), if you're going to have lots of encounters the player should be able to get through them very quickly (early SMT games are notorious for their high encounter rates but many battles can be ended in <10 seconds if you know what you're doing). Also, consider the reason behind encounter conventions: it all originates from early D&D editions wherein the dungeons would have both monsters who would always be in certain rooms as well as "roaming" monsters that the party might encounter randomly - this is where the concept of random encounters originates from. You can replicate this by making dungeons that have scripted encounters in certain rooms as well as either random encounters (with a lower encounter rate) or events scattered around that are set to randomly spawn an encounter, maybe triggering it when the player enters a room. Regardless, I definitely err towards having a smaller number of more difficult, significant encounters where the potential for a TPK is present in each one rather than a large quantity that slow whittles down the player's resources but don't pose much threat on their own.

Yes. Something like $gameVariables.value(1)[0]

I meant more checking the individual digits of a variable.
>>
>>2728451
Put this in a plugin, ignore the incompatibility message, it was made for MV but it works in MZ.

function checkVarDigit(gamevar,pos){
var chkvar=$gameVariables.value(gamevar);
chkvar = chkvar.toString(); /*Convert in String*/
chkvar = chkvar.split(''); /*Convert in Array*/
return Number(chkvar[pos]);
}

If you use "If:Script:checkVarDigit(1,2) == 4" in a fork it will check if the third digit is 4, and return True if it does. Keep in mind that leading zeros are not considered part of the digit, so 0040 wont work but 1040 will.
