When I was gone I created this website called PugBrew to advertise all my new cartoon drawings. It didn't live a long life, but I might as well share the best pics from this art website.

I started screwing around in RPG Maker XP again.

I seem to have come back at the wrong time though.
    Im guessing most of you are familiar with my website GameCraft. I have been working my ass off on the website, and I need the help of those of you who know Javascript. With my standard sized monitor, I can only fit four boxes at the top. With a widescreen monitor (That I am sure most of you have), you can fit a fifth box in there. So my problem is that people with standard sized monitors will have problems with the fifth box being inserted.
   I did some research, and I compiled this code to insert the fifth box:

<script type="text/javascript">
if (screen.width<=100) document.write('<td width="20%"><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="162">
<tr><td height="29" style="background:url('/Custom/Top2.png');color:#116111;" align="center"><b>Newest Tutorial</b></td></tr>
<tr><td height="160" style="background:url('/Custom/Middle2.png') #000000;padding:5px 5px 0 5px;">$MYINF_8$</td></tr>
<tr><td><img src="/Custom/Bottom2.png" border="0"></td></tr>

And yet, when I test this code out in widescreen monitors, no fifth box appears!
Now, uCoz does allow javascript. I know this because I used simple javascript to make the "Random Monster Generator".

Edit: The $MYINF_8$ is what is inside the box, not part of the box itself.

For no reason, I am leaving. Bye!
I have this CSS code that I stick in some of my pages to stop images from getting too big.
<style type="text/css">img {max-width: 100px;width: expression(this.width > 100 ? 100: true);}</style>

This code sizes down any image above 100 px in width, to 100 px wide.
What i am having an issue with, is figuring out how to use this code on only a part of a pages code. So lets say my header has images over the size of 100 px, but I want the icons for my Game section to be 100 px wide if the icon is too wide..
Tutorials / [XP]How to Import Maps into RMXP

How to Import Maps into RMXP

   Some of us have a team of members working together; making sprites, art, scripts, and maps. Everything is easy to put into a project, except other peoples RMXP maps. You can't just drag the Map001.rxdata into the data folder and expect RMXP to read it. The reason RMXP doesn't read the Map001.rxdata is because it has the map info saved in MapInfos.rxdata. RMXP won't even know your map is there, if there is no Map001 in the MapInfos.rxdata.

   I figured all this out after trying to give ShadowCarnage a map for his project, Wipe.

   Now, its very easy to import maps into RMXP. This tutorial will teach you how. Also, since I am freaking awesome, I'm including pictures (despite how outrageously easy this is).

Step 1: Create an empty map...
In the project you want the map to be imported into, create a new map. Don't bother doing anything with this map, it will be replaced by the new map. Remember its ID number. You can find its ID number in Map Properties.

Step 2: Close RMXP
Now, close your project. Make sure to save any changes made to the game.

Step 3: Rename your maps name
Rename the map you want to import into the game to the Map ID I told you to remember earlier. For instance, if the Map ID you remembered was 123, rename the file to Map123.rxdata.

Step 4: Drag the map into the data folder of your project.
Find the Data folder for your project. Drag and drop the new map into the Data folder. It will ask you if you want to replace the old file. Click Yes.

Step 5: Make necessary changes.
Your mapper may have used different autotiles, sprites, etc. Make sure to ask the mapper for anything you may need for the map, and import that into the game.
Some events may need fixing when imported. Specifically teleporting events.
I own a crappy Windows XP computer, with a drive that I have never needed to use until now. I just got Starcraft 2, and my CD-RW driver will not detect it! I tried it on Warcraft 3, and it detected it just fine.

Jeks Sprite Editing Tutorials

This is my tutorial for editing sprites in any way you want. I will be teaching you how to frankensprite RMXP characters together, combine tilesets, recolor, and alot more sprite editing techniques. I am using Graphics Gale for each of the tutorials, so I advise you install it before attempting these strategies. You cannot do this in paint! Graphics gale is free, and my personal favorite for editing sprites. Its the choice because it is specifically made for spriting, while Photoshop is specific for making things look nice and not pixelated. Some of this is doable in Photoshop, but not all of it.

Important for each tutorial! Make sure to turn on tranparency in each charset you edit. In the Layers window, look for a tiny button. Click it, and it will open a window. Check the transparency box.

Table of Contents

  • Frankenspriting Learn to take Arshes head, and put it on the body of a lancer.

  • Recoloring Arshes has orange hair, but I want it blue! What am I to do?

  • WIP Combine Tilesets Ive always wanted to make a dungeon beach resort, but the palm trees are in the desert tileset, and the dungeon is a different tileset. Help me Jek!

  • WIP Jeks Avatar Learn to make Jeks "Fuck Yeah" avatar!


Lets say we want the head of Warrior-02 on the body of Cleric-02 because Warrior-02 needs to make it to an important dinner and needs Cleric-02s stature and nice suit. That's where this tutorial comes in handy.
Spoiler: ShowHide

Step 1. Chop off the head of Cleric-02!
With the Rectangular Selection tool at the top bar, select the head of Cleric-02, and press the delete key. Take off everything from the shoulders up.

Step 2. Grab Warrior-02s head.
Now, it is time to grab the head off of Warrior-02. We have to make sure that as we grab the head, we avoid grabbing the pointy shoulders. To do this, we grab his head exactly. Select it in sections by pressing the Shift button as you select. This adds to your previous selection. after selecting the head completely, press Ctrl + C to copy the head to your clipboard.

Step 3. Now, we stick the head of Warrior-02 onto the body of Cleric-02
Make a new layer by right clicking on your current layer in the Layers window, and pressing New Layer. Make that layer transparent by clicking the box and checking transparency. While in the top layer for Cleric-02s sprite, press Ctrl + V. The head of Warrior-02 will pop up at the top left of the window. Drag it down to the exact place where it fits. Use the chin left from cutting off the head of Cleric-02 to figure out where to place Warrior-02s head. If you see a white square around the warriors head whenever you put the head down, place it, then use the magic wand tool to select the white area around the head, then press delete.

Step 4. Repeat until done completely.
You can reuse the head you selected for all 4 frames facing downward in the charset. Repeat all of these steps until you finish the entire charset.

Now he is ready for a wedding or something.


Sometimes, we love the look of something, but we don't like the color. For instance, Arshes has orange hair. Out of hate for the color orange, I may want his hair blue, or yellow, or even green. Thats where this tutorial may come in handy.
There are 2 methods for Recoloring sprites that I will teach you. The first one is very simple, while the second one requires a small amount of precision. Use whichever one you want.
Spoiler: ShowHide

Method 1

Step 1. Prepare the sprite.
For this method, we need to change the image's color depth to 8bpp (256 colors). Most RMXP and RMVX resources are already 256 colors, but its best to do this step anyways. In the menu at the top of Graphics Gale, click All Frames, and then Color Depth... in the sub menu. Click the circle for 8bpp (256 colors), then press OK.
You should see a set of boxes like this to your right:

Step 2. Change the colors.
Make sure you are using the tool. Right click on whatever color you want changed, and then adjust the sliders to the right to change the color. Under the sliders there are 2 tabs, RGB and HSL. Most prefer HSL, but some others prefer RGB.

Step 3. Final Product.
Once you have changed each color that you need to, you should have something like this:


In my personal opinion, she looks like Lady Gaga

Method 2

Step 1. Preparing the sprite
Just like in the first method, go to All Frames and click Color Depth... in the sub menu. This time, click 24bpp (Full Color). This will not limit the amount of colors in use.

Step 2. Grabbing Colors
Now you need to change to the tool. This is the Color Replacer. Right click on the color you want to replace, it should pop up on the first slide in the Color Sliders. Now press the X beside the color sliders as labeled here:

That should switch the First Slide and the Second Slide. Change the first slide (that is now white) to whatever color you want to replace with the color in the second slide.

Step 3. Draw!
Now, use the tool to draw over the colors you want changed. You can change texture and pen size with the two boxes next to the color sliders. Now, you have exact control over where you want the color changed. We can make our blue aquatic friend pink, with one green eye, and one yellow eye!


Academics / I miss school.
July 30, 2010, 01:30:11 am
This summer break has been the crappiest and the loneliest. I wish I was back at school to hang with that girl I want to make sweet love to. I also have all of my favorite classes, and I have many things to show my peers. One of those things is my Indiana Jones hat, and my new t-shirts. Including a "Who Ya Gonna Call" one.
For those still in school:

Are you counting the days until school starts?

For those who is past school:

I am not using blizz abs, but my battlers are tiny sprites in battle mode, and my scenes in regular maps look strange with the large animations playing. Can I have the 1/2 sized battle animation script on its own?
Script Requests / [RMXP]Credits Script
July 26, 2010, 12:57:08 am
I had an idea for a script. A credits script! All it does is allows you to make easy credits. Maybe even with afew optional features:

  • Scroll Direction (Up, down, left, at a 12 degree angle upward)

  • Transition (Is it scrolling up, fade in and out, or something else?)

  • Over an image or map (Self explanatory)

  • Text size, color, and type(Bold/Italics/Underlined)

  • Images scrolling up with text

  • Text alignment (Center, left, right)

  • Font change

  • Special Effects (Battle animations that scroll up? Glowing text?)

  • Link text to URL

  • Horizontal Rules

I had a spontaneous idea last night that I must share. When I destroy the city in my game, I want it to look amazing. That would be easy with Blizz ABS, but I have stuck to Minkoffs Side view for this game. What I would like to know is if I could use Blizz ABS to program demons fighting humans, but then when a demon comes up to you, it goes to the default battle system.

Now, recently(right after I left you guys), I got a new computer. So, I took all the MP3 files off my ipod and back on my computer. Now, when I play it in Windows Media Player, the songs are all mixed up. Im hearing "Rocket Man" by Elton John right now, but it says im listening to "Here is the News" by Electric Light Orchestra. Is there an easy fix for this or will I have to fix each of them manually?

The music on my ipod is not mixed up, only in WMP.

Im bored, Im gonna name more.

Im hearing: Heartbreaker - Pat Benetar
It says im hearing: Beds are Burning - Midnight Oil

Im hearing: More of that Jazz - Queen
It says im hearing: Im in love with my car - Queen

Im hearing: Dust in the Wind - Kansas
It says im hearing: The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash

Im hearing: Share the Land - The Guess Who
It says im hearing: 19-2000 (Soulchild Remix) - Gorillaz
I have an Ipod Touch, and made a theme for myself and posted it in Cydia. For all with hacked Ipods, check it out.

After getting a new computer(not some super duper new one, just another XP), I didn't bother getting RMXP, RMVX, RM2k3, Game Maker 8 Pro, or Fighter Maker 2002 until last night. Now, I am getting back to RPG making. Ive got this interesting adventure I plan to put a character through. I may talk about it when I am a little further into production.
Now, I want to make use of this post. Would everyone tell me anything important I may have missed? I noticed the program Cybele went down. That's very unfortunate.

Also, GameCraft will never go down.

New Projects / Jek's Game
March 28, 2010, 06:11:01 pm

I know what you may be thinking. What kind of name is "Jeks Game"? What the heck is the point of naming it that? Really, all it is is to get my name known out in the RPG making world. Something I might call it is my Resume Game. With the name "Jeks Game", people will know that a guy named Jek made this game!
As lame as the story is, I hope to make this game fun and challenging.

Background Story
In some town somewhere, four different criminals get caught for their illegal acts.
Lance was caught attacking a child for some food. The Hunter and The Girl where caught breaking into peoples houses. As for the Hooded Man, he was caught with 26 guards in his basement, all put there against their will. Now, all four are inside a prison.

The Story
    All four of the criminals are in the prison. The Lancer, The Hooded Man, The Hunter, and The Girl. One night, they all lay asleep. A guard sits there, awake, making sure nobody escapes. The Hooded Man get out of bed. The guard yells, "What are you doing?" The Hooded Man brightens up. "Sleepy time!" A spell was enchanted upon the guard, forcing the guard to fall asleep.
    "Hey you! In the other cell!" Yells the Hooded Man. The Lancer in the cell across wakes and walks up to the end of his cell where the sleeping guard is. "What did you do?!" "Don't worry, he is only asleep!" Says the Hooded Man. "Could you do me a favor and grab the key from the guard? Hes against your cell." "Sure..."
    The Lancer grabs the key and unlocks both himself and the Hooded man from their cell. That wakes the other two up. They run to their cell doors and yell, "Get me out of here!" The Lancer opens their doors. Now it is time to escape!

Event System Requests / [RMXP]Auto Regenrate Health
March 26, 2010, 04:26:09 pm
What I am trying to do is to regenerate health based on the characters level. So, every minute, your health regenerates by 1 if you are level 1. Once you are level 2, you regenerate 2 health. How might I go about doing this when there is no conditional branch for it? Im guessing it would involve the script option in the conditional branch?

    GameCraft is my baby. I hold it in my arms, feed it, and constantly add cool stuff like robotic arms. My aim with this website: Make a website. Thats the truth. All I wanted to do was make a website. Nothing special like, "I want to help the hungry African American RPG Makers with little to no RPG Maker resources."
    Ive been told constantly that my website is amazing, and I would agree. I tend to think harder of the psycology of somebody visiting the website. Thats why my website springs awesome out of its beatifully shaved armpits.
    Let me give afew points about GameCraft based on the info from March 22, 2010:

  • The Resource Gallery, the pride of GameCraft features almost 500 reasources. That comprises of 213 RM2k3 resources, 115 RMXP resources, 52 RMVX resources, about 6 Fighter Maker Resources, and 96 other resources.

  • The Articles section isnt filled with great tutorials that would help everyone with any question starting with the word 'how', but still has an advance WYSIWYG editor that allows you to copy/paste anything into it. You can also review games in this thingy.

  • The Games section also features a WYSIWYG editor that allows you to copy/paste anything into it. Other users can rate your game, comment on it, and flash games play in the browser.

  • This feature will BLOW YOUR MIND! A Forums!

  • A Random Monster Generator (RanMonGer) shows a random monster each and every time you load the page. That makes the website fun!

  • An untouched Report Form to report stolen resources and broken links and such.

  • A downloads section with downloads to makers, utilities, maps, saves, and other crazy stuff like that.

  • Affiliating with us is as easy as filling out the form on the Link to us page. Thats also where you find userbars and affiliation buttons and signatures to advertise GameCraft.

  • A Links page featuring links from around the world to help you find your RPG Making resources.

  • Every website should have a Chat Box!

  • News about the website. Not as fun as those other features...

Now that I have filled you in on each and every detail that is of any importance to my website, can I affiliate with you guys?
Ive got this stylish little button:

Ive fixed the problem before, but its just not working at all. First thing I did was turn off notifications, and bluetooth, etc. That worked for a week, then it lagged again. So, I turned off my kirby theme(posted on ModMyi if you want to see it) and it worked fast for a week. Now, its lagging alot and I dont know what to do!

Mind sharing some of your artwork?

Clearly, i have been asked to share my artwork. Also I was asked to share the orgasms. The orgasms will come on a later date when I'm not so tired from working so hard on other things. I always love putting those words in my sentences. "...Orgasms...Date....Working So Hard...Boobs...Things..." Unfortunately I couldn't fit "Boobs" in that sentence. On day though.
Anyways, my art! Here I will post my favorite art from the past, and then my replies will show the recently completed artwork.

Every great artist sketches. Its essential to keep our creative attitudes up and for practicing in the artistic ways. Over the past few years I have drawn some pretty awesome things. I hope you like them as well.

Here are acouple characters for a comic I am procrastinating on. This is my favorite sketch of the two main characters. Their appearances have changed abit.

Heres the first and only currently available comic page of that comic. Its name is actually Crazy Smoke.

This sketch means alot to me. This would be my ex-girlfriends favorite animal. I drew it the day before she dumped me.

One day in my english class, we were asked to draw a tree for some sort of symbolism of ourselves. I decided to draw a tangled up tree with a guy sitting under it. It worked out great. Doesn't symbolize me at the slightest.

I like birds. Just thought you should know that.

I was drawing my friend Greg when I realized my image looked nothing like him, but rather like a homeless man. I finished it anyways and put a join in their mouth. The image has a creative title: "I Drew a Hobo"
