The sole purpose of this thread is to allow for you to suggest and request features to be added or changed within the game. Please look through the features already listed in the Features Spotlight thread before posting here though. If you see your suggestion within the removed features section, please save yourself the hassle, and do not suggest the feature; it will have been removed for a reason, which will have already been explained in the aforementioned thread. If you have suggestions, but do not want to publicly post about them, or have questions about what may or may not be acceptable to suggest, please send me a personal message, and we can discuss your thoughts before posting out in the forums about it.

I have re-started making games, and as this game is al about the player, and being in an open world, shaping their own path, I have decided to start asking questions from the people I want to actually play this. What do you guys think when it comes to demos/trials/beta versions of a game?

yep, I'm back.. I'm reserving this and will fill in my activities from the past few months at some point, but I've been lurking here the last couple nights and wanted to say I'm back.. Again.. haha.

Glad to see you all. =)

I just keep finding all kinds of articles to post here; this is yet another one, discussing the way people use language on the internet, and how it has changed the way we say things. More of an interesting topic than a debate, but cool either way: http://the-toast.net/2013/11/20/yes-you-can-even/

TL;DR VXAce is on sale for 80% off right now, coming down to 13.99, or 41.99 for a 4 pack if you're feeling generous :D

Thought you should all know :)

KK20 brought up an interesting point in a post, that there seems to be more programmers/scripters than any other type of artists in these forums. I'm curious to know, just how many people there are that dabble in other forms of media creation. You don't necessarily have to be good at it, or plan to release anything. For example, with games, I do alot more in the way of planning, storylines, and eventing, and I'm also learning scripting; however, I also mess around with audio, though I have never released a single track, and I like to edit graphics too. Lastly, and I know there must be something wrong with me for it, I also like writing technical and legal papers for things (like the readme file or the EULA for XPAce). I may or may not ever share some of my works in those fields, though I lean more towards the 'sure, why not' side at the moment.

Andyone else care to share? Any links for us to check out?

Sea of Code / Some JS web code for fun
July 16, 2014, 03:56:14 pm
Okay, so, who has not heard of the Harlem Shake song/dance? Well, there was one point where youtube had implemented a small JS code snippet that made the results page do the harlem shake when you searched for the song. This little snippet will make ANY page do the same thing, complete with a short sound clip of it. Simply open your page inspector (sorry IE people, won't work for you) paste it into the console and press enter. Then sit back and watch the page start to go crazy. Results WILL vary depending on the way the site was coded, but it should prove to be entertaining regardless.

RPG Maker XP-Ace
Support Site





As many of you already know, a support website is in the works for the RMXP-Ace project. The site is "live" at the moment, though still under construction. You are able to register and post though, which allows you to report problems through the forums. We will eventually have a ticket system in place that allows more elaborate reporting, but at the moment, that's in the works. If you are interested in scripting for the project, let me know as well!

So, what's the point of the site? Good question! The site has been born out of a necessity for a support site, after the inevitable collapse of the original site; it died an unfortunate digital death due to lack of funds it appears, and the original creator has not been heard from in quite some time. However, like all good products, it has survived and been given interest by the XP community. The site will feature a bug tracker/ticket system that allows for you to report scripts. There will also be a knowledge-base/wiki that is created around these script fixes. In addition to fixing scripts, my goal is to also take common/popular scripts that add value to the game, and, are not specific to just one design of a game, and add them to this project as an officially supported module.

The site's secondary purpose is to provide tutorials and documentation for putting the kit together yourself, if for some reason you choose to do so. This will only guide you through setting up and troubleshooting a basic copy of XP Ace however, and will not provide any of the other scripts that the development package has in it.

You can get to the site here: RPG Maker XP Ace website




This thread will also serve the purpose of letting you all know when the site is down, when it'll be up, etc.; quite an improvement over trying to notify everyone via the shoutbox here

Project 57

A player driven game




Yes, I'm purposefully poking fun at Generic RPG names with the title of mine. I may or may not change the name somewhere down the road. This particular game is something I'm doing for the game making competition this month (yes, same one that legacyblade is in too). We'll see what happens with it! I don't expect to win the grand prize or anything, but I feel like I learned enough over the years to be able to at least attempt to compete. Plus, if I don't at least try, i have a 100% chance to fail at it :p



The Storyline




Ah yes, the storyline.. Well, let's see.. Oh! Yes, I almost forgot to tell you. This doesn't really have a storyline. At least, not in the traditional sense. You see, you make your own choices, and decide what happens. So I suppose the storyline is somewhat what I would call a reactionary one; The NPC's will react to you, and depending on choices you have made in the past, how long you have been playing, etc. they will have different reactions, and sometimes, entirely different requests for you. Many "main" quests, and most side quests, will only be activated on a conditional basis, so you might get different ones depending on your progress.

Your start-off is rather simple; also, very generic. This game attempts to add humor and comic relief to a game type that is rapidly becoming the next over-saturated game genre on the market. It does this by combining instances of pure stereotypical RPG themes with comedic dialog that makes fun of the stereotypical nature it is portraying.

Demo and Downloads




DOWNLOAD: Yeah, I'll add one of these eventually EDIT: Download Available.



Other Links and Information




Hmm.. Nothing I can think of right this second. I'll be hosting this game on my site though, so you'll be able to download the demo from Gamers Archive when I get a demo created and all..

Advertising / Gamers Archive
June 05, 2014, 09:33:58 pm
So, I have come across a TON of dead links, broken downloads, and other such disappointing situations over the past several years whilst traversing this site, RMRK, HomeBrew, etc. and I've decided to start up a small, not too over-advertised (at least not for a bit) file-server / archive style site. My offer is free file hosting for projects, files, etc for just about anyone that's wants it. This is kind pf similar to the idea that GG had a while back with Cybele, but not nearly as elaborate or attractive looking.

Would anyone be interested in using this as well? If not, that's okay, I still plan to use it myself, but I figure why not share the wealth! This place has been a huge help to me over the years, so I'm trying to pay it forward in a way :)

The URL (when it becomes active) is gamers-archive.com

EDIT: If you think you would make use of this, and already know things that you would like to see on it, place a link to them somewhere on this thread :) Please be kind though.. If you're listing something that's not yours, make sure it's either a "dead profile" (member is definitely inactive) or it says that the script is completely free to use and distribute, etc. I'll obviously be checking them all too, but it helps me a little if I don't have to yell at you for not following the rules :3

So I know some of you are members elsewhere, and have probably already seen this link, but just wanted to post this here too... There's a contest going on for game-making, and I know some of you just need a reason to make a game, so, the possible prize of $10,000 should be a good motivator.. I'll just leave this link here =p

Troubleshooting / Help / Small linux issue...
May 16, 2014, 06:25:35 pm
So, here I am, with a real, legal copy of XP (it was on sale so I figured why not), and I've been able to install and run the program fine. Heck, I've even been able to edit my current game, including all events, maps, music, etc with no problem at all. However, when I go to activate it, or use the offline unlock feature, it seems to just hang. Anyone have any ideas?


EDIT: I just tried the normal activate function, it it looks like it half works. It spins a little while, and then goes to a blank page with a button that says 'click here if not otherwise forwarded'. I guess we'll see what happens if I let it sit for a while (pressed button, no visual response from it, other than the button press action lolz)


MOAR EDIT: Yeah, so it just sits there and does nothing. Open to ideas again...

Just took that personality types test, and found out I have the INTP type - The Engineer. There's some pretty cool info about it, one such tidbit is famous people of the same type, and interestingly enough, I'm the same type as Albert Einstein, Socrates, Darwin, Pascal, and a bunch of others that I have actually "looked up to" in a sense, for a while... Pretty cool stuff, needed to share. That is all hehe

Script Requests / [XP]Request - Font Help
April 27, 2014, 01:33:00 am
I have found that I am in need of a quick script that will allow you to load a font and make it overwrite the default font being used. Similar to how F0's Memory Font Loader works, where it reads the font from a specified folder, but I need it to actually replace the font in use, with the new font loaded from the font folder. Basically, this is a compatibility feature, as it will force the game to use a font being shipped along with the game, which will be useful for a system such as mine where the game runs perfectly fine, except that I can not see the text (I'm running Linux Mint, with RMXP running through WINE. Game works fine when I run from .exe file, but none of the text is diplayed. I assume this type of script would fix the problem? )

Also, if this script really works the way I need it to (that is, to make the text work within Linux systems as well), then this may become a paid project for someone.

Script Troubleshooting / Blizz's Heal on level up
March 27, 2014, 08:22:19 am
   Alright, so here I am, using the script blizz made, for heal on level up, in the Tons of Addons collection. Playing through, I noticed that they're not healing on level up, which kind of defeats the purpose of setting it to true =/ so in my tinkering, I somehow came up with the conclusion of, why not just hardcode it right into the class Window_BattleStatus since that's where it goes. I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to get that to work though. I tried it in different, logical, spots, but it produces a syntax error each time, on the last line in the script, which is always an 'end' command. Thoughts, comments, ridicule? Help?

For those that need it, the code is right here:

Phoenix Engine ~ Alternate Attack Calculations
Authors: PhoenixFire/DigitalSoul and Xelias
Version: 1.0
Type: Custom Battle System / Default Script Edit
Key Term: Custom Battle System



Introduction

So part 1 of many.. I went ahead and re-wrote Game_Battler_3 with an included re-write of the Alternate Attack Algorithms originally made by Xelias. Note: You ABSOLUTELY MUST configure the script if you use it. The configuration bit is located at the top of the re-written script, along with an explanation of what each alternate algorithm does. This SHOULD be compatible with EVERYTHING, since it doesn't overwrite anything, but rather completely replaces the atk values that would be overwritten by other scripts..


Features


  • Re-write of the Game_Battler_3 standard script, changing the attack calculations.

  • Provides several alternate attack algorithms, which can be assigned to several weapons.

  • Fully configurable script re-write (you can always use the regular attack methods as well)




Screenshots

N/A ~ Not sure how you would screenshot something like that anyways..


Demo

N/A ~ Demo not needed.

# How to use this script :
#
# This allows your weapons to follow different damage algorithms. If your weapon
# uses a normal attack algorithm, you MUST place its ID in the
# NORMAL_WEAPONS_IDS, or else it wouldn't be good for your game. Also place all
# weapons ID except SP damaging and absorbing ones, into the
# "ALL_WEAPONS_IDS", because if you don't, a nasty bug will prevent you from
# dealing damage with normal attack.
#
# ATMA_WEAPON_IDS = [X,X...] : A weapon with an ID equal to X will inflict
# more damage depending on the user's HP. If HP are full, attack power is doubled.
# If HP are at minimum, attack power is normal. If HP are equal to half, attack
# power is equal to 1.5 of the normal Attack power, and so on...
#
# VALIANT_IDS = [X, X...] : The opposite effect of Atma Weapon.
# If HP are at minimum, attack power is doubled, and so on...
#
# WHITE_MOON_IDS = [X, X...] : Follows the same formula than Atma Weapon
# but works with SP
#
# CONFORMER_IDS = [X, X...] : Deals damage based on user's Level.
#
# INTEL_WEAPON_IDS = [X, X...] : Inflicts damage based on user's Intelligence
# instead of Strength
#
# NINJA_IDS = [X, X...] : Inflicts damage based on user's Agility
# instead of Strength
#
# MIND_BLASTER_IDS = [X, X...] : Damage is inflicted to SP. Damage
# relies also on the opponent's Magic Defense and your Intelligence
#
# BLOOD_SWORD_IDS = [X, X...] & PERCENT_DRAINED = X : 
# some damage is absorbed from the attack. How many? PERCENT_DRAINED %

Instructions

To install, simply copy and paste over the default Game_Battler_3 script. IF YOU THINK YOU MAY WANT TO SWITCH BACK~ Always make a backup of scripts before major changes, but, even if you don't, you can "create a new project" and simply copy the default script from the new project, and paste it over the modified one. You absolutely MUST configure the script for it to work properly. Config instructions are within the script, above the configuration variables, at the top of the script.


Compatibility

Does not work with rpgmaker XP version 1.05 ~ Causes the following error:

NoMethodError
Undefined method "*" for nil:NilClass


Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix this at the moment, but if I find a solution, I will certainly fix it.


Credits and Thanks


  • PhoenixFire/DigitalSoul ~ The re-write and editing.

  • Xelias ~ The original Alternate Algorithms script. Parts of it were used in this re-write.




Author's Notes

Enjoy the script! Really, I'm trying to better my scripting abilities, and this is just a simple start. I know that it's not much of an edit, but in time, I plan to re-write most, if not all, of the default scripts to have added functionality.

Restrictions: None - You may use this in your game, whether commercial or non-commercial, as long as proper credit is given.

Event Systems / Digitals Event Shop! [XP, VX Coming Soon]
February 12, 2014, 03:20:53 pm
   Okay, so I seem to have run across more requests for scripts lately that could be done with an event system. Now I'm not going to say that I can do EVERYTHING, because that would be ridiculous, but since there's so many talented scripters on here, and even some of them are responding to requests with "that can be done with events", I decided to finally post up this topic. I consider both scripts and event systems to be equal in terms of usefulness, and this shop is not meant to compete with the scripters out there at all, however, as I've stated in many other places, there's one thing to keep in mind with events and scripts. Event systems generally are easy to figure out what they're doing, what they affect, and usually very easy to change around a bit. Scripts require a bit of knowledge to use and modify them, and if you are not a scripter, and do not plan to learn, I HIGHLY suggest looking into an event system instead. Otherwise, you may have an even lower chance of successfully changing things for your own game, and will have to rely on scripters for mods. Sometimes the original creator of the script is no longer available, and, I have seen some of those types of scripts abandoned completely by other scripters too, as it is either too hard to modify, too old to support, or would take too long to re-make it all.



   So, what's my shop exactly? Well, as you can figure out, I do eventing "stuff". Usually I do this for free, but if you have a large project that's going to take many, many, many hours, I usually charge a small fee for it (note, if I talk to you on here on a normal-ish basis, the preceding does not apply to you at all).It usually boils down to; if it takes me more than two hours, I charge $10/hour, and I round off hours... So if it takes three hours and 29 minutes, you get charged for three hours only =p It may seem odd that I ask for money, but, well, I'm poor and need money, and I have skills that I can use, but the only people that will make use of me doing this for them will be other people that use RMXP (and soon enough, I'll work with VX and VXA possibly). So how does it work? Well, I will need to know exactly what you want done, with as many details as you can provide. Usually I will need a copy of your current game build as well, since that is what I will be working in. Once I have a copy of the game working on my device, I can go ahead and put in the system, make sure it works as it is supposed to, and then send back the new game file.


  Questions, comments, ridicule, etc can all be directed to me either here, pm, e-mail, Skype, etc. and I will respond when I can.


P.S. If someone can sticky this, and make sure it's in the right area, that would be appreciated...   :D

I don't know if many people here use it, but it would be pretty cool to integrate tapatalk into this site. I just did it for my site, and it works great. Its probably most useful for those of us that just check for unread messages quick in the middle of the workday, since it offers no admin or moderator options, but it's very useful. Compared to opening the page in a full browser, or even a mobile browser, it also uses a hell of a lot less data on phones.. Just a suggestion..

   So I'm trying to use this barebones script to get and play music. I modified it to read from a different folder (Radio), and that seems to work fine. I get an error though when trying to load the damn thing =p

Thoughts on what it might be?


Script:

class Jukebox
    attr_reader :list
    def initialize
        @songs = Dir.entries("Audio/BGM/")
        temp = @songs.clone
        @list = []
        for i in 0..(temp.size)
            next if temp[i] == "." or temp[i] == ".." or temp[i] == nil
            @list.push(temp[i])
        end
        for i in 0..(@list.size)
            @list[i].gsub!(/\.[^\.]*\Z/) {|s| "" }
        end
    end

Alright, so it's been a while since this was posted up, and my question is, does anyone have any current recommendations for a good, cheaper web host? I saw host gator having a special deal where it comes up to being under $4 per month, though I do need reliability AND lower cost, so if there's another site that's reliable, and still somewhere under $5 per month or so, I'll take it. If I can have multiple sites per account, that would be great as well, though not 100% necessary. I do need php, ruby and sql access on it though, which I know might drive up the price a tiny bit..


Any help and thoughts would be great! =)

RPG Maker Scripts / CMS Re-Write
December 27, 2013, 02:07:26 am
3 Character CMS
Authors: Shinami, Red Eye Dragoon, DigitalSoul
Version: 0.1
Type: Custom Menu System
Key Term: Custom Menu System



Introduction

  The original version of this is NOT written by me, and I am simply re-writing the CMS made by Shinami over on RMRK.net, and in doing so, hoping to learn more about scripting. So what did I do? Well, I've been messing around with the colors of it, and, adapting it away from how it was originally 'installed'. In the first version, you had to copy and paste over all of the scripts it rewrites, and add about three or four scripts separately. This script combines it all into one big re-write, which means you don't lose the original scripts if you decide to get rid of the CMS script. I have also started working on the way it displays certain stats, and where they are displayed. The original version was VERY cluttered, and displayed WAY too much information. I have dropped that down to some of the essentials, and will continue to modify this until it looks even better.


Features


  • Gives you more information about your character, with a quick glance at the pause menu.

  • Visually more attractive than the standard pause menu.

  • Customizable colors and menu items.

  • Incorporates all edits and class re-writes into one script, allowing you to easily install or uninstall the CMS from your game.




Screenshots

Coming soon.



Demo

None at the moment; I have been working on other things, and the link on this seems to be broken. If you reeealllly need a demo, pm me and I'll see what I can do.

Instructions


Place above Main and any other scripts that re-write Window_Base, Window_Command, Window_MenuStatus, Scene_Title, Scene_Menu. The script re-writes these, so any script that needs to further modify ANY of those, should be placed after this script.



Compatibility

Should work with just about everything, except for other menu systems, and anything that relies on the default classes that it overwrites. I know for sure this works with Tons of Addons, and Kings Tilemap Enhance.



Credits and Thanks


  • Shinami, for the original script, and Red Eye Dragoon for posting it.

  • DigitalSoul - For the edits and improvements.





Author's Notes

Please bear in mind that this is my first script edit of this size. I know it is not 100% optimized yet, nor is it 100% condensed yet. It is definitely a work in progress, and as I learn more about scripting, I will come back and edit this more. I also plan to use this script in the future in a compilation starter kit, along with other class re-writes, so any feedback and suggestions are welcome on this  8)

Inspired by a comment made by Shek, I think this topic deserves a good discussion about it. We have members here from all over the world, many different personalities, different walks of life, and a large variance of culture among us. My question for you all is as follows; With the way that the current world economy is, it screws over a vast majority of us all, and really does need to be changed somehow. What do you all think would happen if the world were to go back to a primarily bartering style system? (for those unaware, basically that means trading goods and services for other goods and services) Any thoughts on it? Or what about some other system? Keep in mind this is not a debate about politics, because no one singular government controls world economy, nor should it be governed by such a political system.

Hello everyone, I have a simple question, and although I searched, I didn't find the answer. The question is about audio playback in RMXP; Is there a maximum length that RMXP won't accept .ogg files to be over, in order to play them? I ask because I have several songs that I downloaded that I was able to import into the resources, but it won't play? I tried in both .mp3 and .ogg formats, and even went as far as to re-install the k-lite codec back on my computer.. Game plays the default RTP music and sounds fine, but not my custom ones.. Thoughts?

Script Requests / [XP] Health Reset (resolved)
September 20, 2013, 09:16:33 am
Alright, so I remember seeing a script like this somewhere already, and I searched the database but nothing looked like what I was looking for. I just need a script to reset the characters health to max after they level up, however, I also use Blizzards stat distribution system, so it would need to be a script that either 1) works with that system, since you can change your maxhp when you level up, so it would have to refill your health AFTER you accept all changes to your stats, OR 2) if someone could modify the script Blizz made, and simply have it as part of the script when you select 'accept changes'. Thank you in advance for the help!
