Which marketing moves and public bragging activities make you pretentious? How much of it? Can you give me examples of activities that can be seen as pretentious from a game dev?

One of the things I see as pretentious is to overexplain a project in development, I understand marketing is a must in game development, but if you're going to spam your wiki with more and more info about your characters, game prequels/sequels, and post about things like "headcanons" crossing your characters with other games and such while your game shows little to no progress after a long time I'm going to think you're pretentious.

Before anyone things I'm talking about them(which can happen here) I'd like to say this is common and not about anyone in particular.

I get what you guys try to say about forced and justified association to other games, but as an example, if I draw a dozen of memes of a character from another game with mine to absorb audience I'm simply going to look bad, especially if my game shows no progress.

Sane advertising is fine, you go somewhere, you show your project, you get out, clean and simple.

I was just thinking about that. At least yn fan game devs don't ask for money or don't pay their volunteers who do most of the work or waste volunteer's time by asking them to make stuff that wont even be compatible with the game later or constantly stealing copyrighted shit and never apologizing for it.

I've been trying to use WINE to play the older fangames after MS went to hell, but all the old games are stuck in SHIFT-JIS locale.
I've got everything running weirdly using ja_JP.UTF8 locale.
I've got reverse mojibake because unicode doesn't shift or my fonts are broken.
If it's the font, then how does an RPG Maker game store/request a font?

What he said wasn't really worthless advice. If you are using WINE, you might as well just buy a cheap used computer with Windows or get a VM to play the games with no real issues.

Are you really going to waste time that could be spent playing these fangames because "MS went to hell"? No offense, but that's really stupid.

The only thing I can think of right now is "update Wine", unfortunately. I don't have this issue when running a English-translated Yume Nikki in Japanese locale (mojibake filenames are a mess, so I ran the installer in Japanese locale), but if using certain distributions, your Wine is probably extremely out of date, so that's the best guess I can give.
(If your Wine version is still 1.something, then it is definitely out of date.)

Don't post things like:

Post the actual process you made in your brain to create them, what did you need in your story to come up with your ideas for that character? Will it change in the future.

>How complicated would be to do something similar in ren’py?
Depends, I consider it piss easy because I know python. The engine is just wonderful for that kind of stuff. But if you never touched code in your life it will seem sightly hard at the start, however there are thousand of python guides and books around the net, and it isn't that hard either honestly.

An alternative would be to download the source of a game which had this feature and see what the dev wrote there. UAB is the only game that comes to my mind right now.

Ren'Py is stupid simple to use and makes creating CYOA type games and visual novels a breeze… but it's really heavy on needing art assets. If you can't draw for crap, hopefully you can find someone who can. Crunchy pixels aren't really its style.

It's an abandoned project for now, but here are images featuring badly edited RPG Makever VX assets. I would say it's "intentional", "deliberate", or maybe even "parodic" but the truth is, I have 0 art skills, and couldn't make decent pieces even if I tried.

Basically, the idea is that this character– the MAIN character, is a generic guard, and has an unspeakable horror behind his mask that kills anyone if they see it. Nobody has any clue to what really lies there, but the character himself and the narrator speculates that it may be that his face is just so hideous that it's functionally a sort of "information basilisk"*.

There's another sprite I used somewhere in a video, but I can't find it. I'm pretty sure I featured it in one of my youtube uploads, so I'll try to dig around for that later.

I finally finished a playable version of my RPG Maker 2000 ASCII-adventure game, to be found here: https://ufile.io/01118

It is called CLASSIC GAME and it has many secrets.

It's about the HERMIT returning to the outside world to find it devastated by curses, and it uses its own combat system.

This version was made between 2011 and 2016.

Happy holidays from one NEET to y'all…

I'm trying to decode .flow as a reference material for a fangame but the fucking mojibake is killing me.

I have AppLocale & System Locale set to Japanese but im still getting tough luck.

 No.606

You need the Japanese version. It doesn't work even if you have your locale set to Japanese if you're using the English version of the engine, because rm2k(3) can't render Jap in windows-1252 encoding.

Someday we're going to need someone to get OG Japanese RPGMaker 2000/2003 cracked (even if your against piracy, do mind that it's software from 2000/2003 respectively and nobody is going to pay a second time for a tool so they can release a fangame for free) for educational purposes.

It probably already is, but i don't know jackshit on their language, but i do know that they don't torrent, feelsbadman.

So I was thinking about using RPG to make a game, not necessarily a fangame, but I cannot understand tilesets? Like, the only programme I have familiarity with is gamemaker so bear with me. First, how do I make my own tileset? And second, how can I make just one big tileset? Is there any real advantage to having specific ones? I find it way too limiting.

 No.575

Having specific tilesets is for two things: Making sure the art design of an area is cohesive, and simply organizing your tiles. Both of these are Good Things.

 No.576

>>575
It also greatly diminishes loading time. If you had all your tiles in one image, it'd have a huge file size, and the engine would have to load ut every time you move between maps.

 No.592

>>576
actual gamedev here, this is pretty much the opposite of true

generally you want to squish every single one of your textures into as few giant files as you can (texture atlases) to save VRAM, since ideally all your texture files will be POT or Power of Two (128x128, 1024x256, 512x512) etc in order to be supported in hardware by as many graphics card configurations as possible. since it's very likely that you won't manage to perfectly fill up a POT texture

BUT speaking pratically this general attitude isnt 100% applicable to 2D rpgs because 1. texture atlasing isnt as big of a concern since square tiles pack perfectly with no wasted space and 2. it's 2016 your sprite game isn't going to go past 10% CPU utilization even if you render everything in software unless you actively try to write the shittiest engine possible like the LISA guy apparently did

anyway a 2048x2048 texture is like 16 MB in VRAM and modern cards have 4GB plus so I guarantee all the pixel art you could make in a lifetime will fit and you aren't going to have loading times as long as you don't do something stupid like save everything as a TGA instead of PNGs

splitting tilesheets into themed areas for organization is a good idea though

I dunno. You need some solid world ideas for these games to make walking actually enjoyable. With the few map ideas I have right now, it might be better to just make the game puzzley like Lisa or even a straight up jrpg like Middens. Moreover I believe interactions between effects and worlds also needs to be planned with a bit of care so there is variety in the effects you use and you don't just end up using the same 3-4 effects to solve any obstacle.
