https://itch.io/jam/yourpgm-jam-11-presentPlay and review the games from last jam... NOW!
Do your part!
>>2916765this guy should write a paper on us and diagnose us with mental illnesses
>>2916719I've drawn some assets, though I'll have to remake some of them, abd I also have a pretty solid outline of what I want the game to be.Other than that I don't have much done.
>>2916835>Locust 2B-based>XochitlBASED BASED BASED BASED
>>2916835fuck YES sir, i would like to have that on my plate.
>>2916783I don't think we have here schizos or insane people. Except for maldon, who thought that Godot was a good engine
>>2916719Started working on enemy sprites and finalizing the aesthetic. Do these look good for a horror-ish RPG? Also, I need a good source for silent hill-esque Bgm's.
>>2917439very cool artwork, anon, i think they'd be great for a horror vibe
>>2916719Just making sprites right now>>2917439Yes, those monsters look pretty sick and cute girl in a horror setting is always based
>>2917461A cross for a weapon? Interested in seeing where this ends up going. Looks cool.
Give me motivation
>>2917607If you don't finish your jam game, I will find out where you live and cum inside you
>>2917635That's it I'm NOT finishing my game
>>2917461John Faith has some competition it seems.
>>2916695Very cute girl, everyone with a penis should drain their nutes into her tughole
>>2917469>A cross for a weapon?She's using it to maintain her purity after getting raped by a demon man>Interested in seeing where this ends up going. Looks cool.Thanks man
>>2918206Thanks, I really wanna try to capture that old unnecessary, gratuitous 2000s edge.
>>29182121990s American superhero comics are a good inspiration source for that.
>>2918212Is... Is that fucking DOOMS 2 I see?! Someone's been binging Saint I see...
>>2918368Thanks for the suggestion but I'd rather not with mainstream media. It feels more censored and controlled than stuff you find online. I'm talking more "random people on the internet drawing gore" edge.>>2918544It's Dooms 4 ACTUALLY but Dooms 2 is funnier.
>>2916765Study finds the community is a bunch of 30+ Filipinos exploiting people with mental disabilities.
>>2917439Guy on the left is a lookalike to Herbert Wallace from Nightmare Creatures 2 kek
>>2917607YOU give ME motivation
>>291854790s comics are not really mainstream.
>website still not updated
Finished Not Waiting for Santa Claus. The sliding mechanic didn't really do much for me, but the bizzare dialogue popping up only in my second playthrough kept me hooked long enough to experiment a few times with some screen transition combinations to see if there was anything else hidden/softlocked. I rate it a Tinkle/Sprinkle.
Cathrath is a lot of fun. Enjoyed the arcade-y format a lot as well as the automatic regeneration and the lack of needless dungeon or map movement definitely works well in its favour. Didn't take very long to adapt to the Skills and Passives menus, although I'm still not very sure how the element sphere mechanic works.My heart dies a little every time I get wiped and have to go back to endlessly stomping fairies until I can get at least my first upgrade. I suspect I'm probably speccing Galatea incorrectly in most of my attempts, given how frequently those Dolls do me in. Those status effects carrying in-between fights is rough.
Played Council of Doom (very ambitious and cool game but I can't get these fuckers to stop fucking me over) and Isekai Madness 5. As always, fun dialogue and characters. That last boss in IM5 took me a few tries til I realized I could just have Phoebe dimension hide, rest, and then spam hellfire. Finally gonna be able to play IM6 tonight.
everyone's reviewing games so i too will review a game (tomorrow)
Lebben cute cute CUTE CUTE CUTE, the new menu assets for the girls are also great.
>>2916695 made for bbc
>>2919611That was a lot of fun. The boss fight was funny, was happy that we get to take her underwear, a series staple at this point, ending was cute. The geo puzzles made my brain feel big when I figured them out. Fun game, good work! Going to play Unclear Unclear Unclear tomorrow.
made some strides in writing tonight. might actually manage to make a game for the indulgence jam. but i can't decide whether i want to make a collection of short stories with no combat or try making a puzzle game or just go with a standard rpg
>told myself I was going to participate in the 6 month jam>still haven't made anythinghaha...
>>2920735I don't think anyone has much to show yet anyway.
What the fug is self-indulgence anyway. How do you make a game out of this?
>>2920773>: excessive or unrestrained gratification of one's own appetites, desires, or whims.
>>2920773>>2920788Or in other words: whatever the fuck you want, just make a game already.
i want to work on a new gamebut i open rpg maker and i don't want to.
>>2920773Have you tried to open up a dictionary and learn the meaning of this word? Why are you so aggressive?
Are you guys ok with furry content?
>>2921085We LOVE furry content!
>>2921085Not my cup of tea but feel free to indulge yourself.
>>2919612please don't lewd my creation
>new fire emblem just leakedWelp
>>2921085Listen here little baby. You're gonna get a lot of hurtful and degrading comments, but that ain't what I'm about. Let me just say, you are perfect the way you are. You hear me sugar? PERFECT. Don't ever change. You deserve anything and everything you want. Stay safe for me, baby girl.>mfw thinking of you hurting
>>2921085UNDER ONE CONDITION:>you must finish your game
>>2916695Imagine even with 6 months of time the self indulgance jam still only gets like 4 games.Wouldnt that be kinda funny?
>>2921640i'll whip something up and make it 5
>>2921640who all's even working on games for it? i feel like only retinacyst has shown screens for it
>>2921652Maldon too >>2916835
>>2919102Thank you for playing Cathrath and for the cute Galatea! I've beaten those fairies up so many times in my test runs myself.You can continue without any real penalty (excluding the fact that you need to 1cc the game to get the extra stage that I have yet to add), so I recommend that if you wanna see the later stages. The sphere system works by using basic elements spells to add elements onto the field in order to use higher level spells... thinking about it, unfortunately the player can go a run without having access to some of them. I've had a few players build Galatea in a way that absolutely breaks the game, one of them had her unga-bungaing everything. Also, holy shit I have to fix the font in it whenever I get around to updating the game.>>2921652I was working on mine back in November but I got sidetracked by the December jam. I definitely can't finish it by the time limit so I'm thinking of making one of my other ideas instead, in a smaller scale.
I got a new idea time to start from the begining.
>>2921779give me an idea too please. it's only fair
>>2921783guy joins adventuring guild but it's the worst faith interpretation of one, adventuring is a 9-5 job and the guild is super corporate.
>>2921783>>2921789Make the guy a horny heterosexual femboy who has rape urges
>>2921783guy joins the town adventuring guild, but it's all sexy women, from the 受付嬢 all the way up to the adventurers themselves, and the adventurer has to prove himself by taking quests and doing great deeds to impress them so they'll join him in defeating some great evil.
Furry jam next
This might be the game I finally download maniacs for
>>2921783you're a lobbyist for big sugar fighting against some vague government agency that boosts stats by consuming soda, candy and decadent desserts
how complicated would it be to make armor that changes overworld/battle sprites in 2k3 with maniacs? I assume it'd be a lot of show image fuckery.
>>2923595Depends on the scope of what you want to accomplish.>different outfits for charactersProbably fairly easy.>each helmet, armor, pants, and shield shows up separately on each characterProbably fairly time consuming. I don't think you'd be able to layer sprites to create a new look, you'd probably have to make sprites for like, "helmet 1 armor 1 pants 1 shield 1/helmet 2 armor 1 pants 1 shield 1" and on and on for each character you wanted to be able to do that.Newer RPGMs have plugins that allow character customization i think but i'm not sure about how stable/good they are.
>>2923608I'm thinking a cheap and hack way to do it could just be to always have the overworld/battle sprite look the same but have a full portrait when the equipment/battle menu is brought up that changes
I'm gonna make it.
>>2923595I did this in RPG Maker 2000 a long time ago. You don't need Maniacs or anything crazy like that.>Make the PC transparent.>Make X Events that each represent parts of the PC. e.g.: PC]Skin/Body, PC]Shoes, PC]Bottom, PC]Top, PC]Gloves, PC]Head, and PC] Accesoires if you want to be really fancy. Also, make sure these Events are the same ID on every Map.>When you load the map, stack these events on top of the PC. You can either do that manually or by making a Common Event that calls PC's X&Ys and puts the Body Parts there.>Make simple Key Input Conditionals for movement, so all the stacked events move at the same time.>You can even put transparent shadows under N/PCs that way.IIRC you had to make the PC transparent and replace it with Events because Move Events prioritize the PC over Events, so it'd always move sooner than the Events that were stacked on top of it.
LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
How do I make the combat similar to LonaRPG? The game doesn't have that many plugins and while I'm looking trough the files I see a lot of ruby scripts so I have no clues on how to replicate it
A friend sent me this thread. Reading about other people's game was what I needed to finally start the Yume Nikki fangame I always wanted to make.Cheers, you're all gonna make it
>>2924608IIRC it's essentially hacking the system with a series of ruby workarounds that break half the time, the guy spent 1 year+ making it work, definitely not something you could do in scope of a single jam.
Where, as a poorfag, should I procure rpg maker from? Also, do the engines get better with each installment, worse, or is each is only good for a certain thing?Sorry for being retarded
>>2916695I want to RPGMaker JAM my cock in that slut lol
Progress postMy jam game is going to be a VN. Here's a girl you meet at the start of the game>>2925852Go get em champ. Take your pick.https://mega.nz/folder/pZskXCpK#Fz1t9NHYr5Se8fVDp6niigHave some MZ plugins too.https://mega.nz/folder/UNx0jQhY#DRwrH9ThyJKZYSz1yIIIGQ
>>2925852Also if you're brand new, I personally recommend the modern engines MV or MZ (MV has more plugins, MZ has more quality of life features). Other anons can chime in for the older engines as I haven't used them.
>>2926150>>2926168I really, truly appreciate it. Thank you.
>>2926168Has MZ gotten any fixes or is it still shit compared to MV?
>>2918778Oh hey, I have an issue of Marshall Law on my shelf.
>>2926725You can use different sized tilesets and MV-style animation is also added
>>2926958So is it worth it or is MV still a better value since it's much cheaper?
>>2927043the mega link above has mz, mv, and all older rpg maker versions. I recommend mz over mv for the qol updatesBut if you want to buy it on steam, just get mv. The qol updates are not worth the price increase
>>2926150Did you use Artificial Academy to make that character?
Has anyone tried using bigger sideview sprites in MV/MZ? I've run into unwanted animation offsets only way I can almost solve it is with setting it to base of target but its still not aiming for the center.
>>2928037in writing hell
>>2928037Only checked into this thread and seen the jam yesterday, still deciding on what to do.
>>2928037Its currently just text and some concept art portraits i still have pretty much 0 progress on the game part.I havent even decided what kind of genre i want the game to be.(im leaning towards a rpg maybe but im not sure.)
>>2928037I have to draw all the sprites.
>>2928037I've been working on stuff that would spoil the whole game but I designed this girl.I also get discouraged from posting progress when there's not much progress from other anons getting posted>>2928135The king has returned
>>2928037I made a map and a few sprites, but I haven't gotten too much done.
>only 7 days left to make a game this monthhttps://youtu.be/KsoxjylnQ68
>>2929252There are still 50 days though?
>>2918547/tg/ tourist, can I have source? Google doesn't give me anything.
>>2930250Drawing pornography takes time
>>2930276You can watch the playthrough, would be less trouble in the long run. There is a youtuber called "Saint" that specialises in obscure stuff, he played through Dooms 1-4 games, had links to them too if I remember correctly.Dooms 1:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFtppo0Rw8U&ab_channel=SaintDooms 2https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GIrNZ1fAf4&ab_channel=SaintDooms 3https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTKJiynbJ3c&ab_channel=SaintDooms 4:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-kxrlx4AvQ&ab_channel=Saint
>>2930337>dooms 1This was kino. And also really took me back to that era of youtubers just not giving a shit. Coughing, sniffling, loudly slurping a drink, crunching on chips, going afk for more than a minute to do who knows what, and no editing at all... Hard to believe the vid was only uploaded 6 years ago.
>>2930337I want to make playthroughs like this of some of the jam gamesMight make one tommorrow if I'm still in the mood
I can't draw men to save my life
>>2930886Draw women with no breasts. Worked great for Yggdra Union.
>>2930886Your life isn't worth saving anyways.
>>2917439luv me sum scribblekino
made a lil writing breakthrough again today.
>>2930886I can't either but that doesn't stop me
>>2930886i can't draw at all
I want to make onimai RPG, but I don't know what kind of gameplay I should put in
>>2931684I can only see it as a Miruge considering it's pretty much CGDCT SOL. Any RPG combat section would be Mahiro playing games and all that.
I just can't fix rpgm MV's blurriness after so many tries, it's over...
>>2931979Blurriness? Send a screenshot, sis.>>2931684Can't you just isekai the characters and call it a day?
>>2931979I expect some blurriness from rpg maker since I have a 1080p monitor and I'm using the default resolution. It's just not worth the effort to make it look sharp since every tileset, enemy, sprite, etc. is designed with the default resolution in mindI just embrace it
>>2921085just finish your fucking game furfag
how do you guys deal with rpgmaker's fucked up audio levels? do i have to just manually change things in audacity?
Give me gameplay ideas. I'm bankrupt again.
>>2932754Dating sim with jam characters
>>2932754Do Wild Card in RPG Maker.It's what I'd like to do, but I can't be bothered to start devving at the moment
Why so dead
>>2933672We are making RPGmaker games. Other than art there isn't much to show or talk about.
>>2933672I've mostly been working on ui stuff, so there isn't much to show
>>2933672most of the conversation in these threads is when people talk about what the new jam should be, but with the new one we just jumped onto an already ongoing one.
>>2916695>>2916700>>2916719>>2916765I'm going to use my bots to vote up any games with cute loli characters
>>2934067>Put a loli in my last game>She's kinda ugly
>>2934074Ugly lolis make me wanna protecc
>>2933740Then show your art>>2933984Then show your ui>>2934054Then talk about the ongoing jam
>>2934086>Then talk about the ongoing jamive finally got a lot of the shitty ideas out of my overarching story and replaced them with good ones but i'm still trying to decide whether or not i want to do x y or z on a certain part of it i've also thought about going fuck it and doing something completely different and this indecisiveness will continue until i go "ah well it's too late to start now" and make nothing again lol
>>2916695>Self-indulgenceSo the jam is make a wish fulfillment? Sounds interesting. I'll make a softcore hentai
>>2934155>softcore hentaithat's ecchi you dumbass
>>2934158Not if it involves a patrician fetish.
>>2934155I'm yiiking out
>>2934086>Then show your artOk.
>>2917439The dude in the DBZ pose? No.Everything else? Good start.Feet are too small for the hands to be that big on both human characters. The DBZ pose is the most dramatic out of the bunch which is a good attempt. The school girl is okay. The monsters are also okay. I think they need a more... sinister-ly dramatic pose to be in.
Which RPG Maker should I get?Leaning towards VX Ace because that's what I grew up with
How do you make a character with a lisp with their dialogue still being readable?>>29358172k3
>>2935822that'th plenty readable.
