New Hard Drive!!!

YAAAAAY

Thanks J.W. for donating the money for me to buy this new hard drive and install Windows 7 Pro! All I need to do now is reinstall RPG Maker and get re-motivated to work again. I have a full time job now so that'll eat alot of my time, so I apologize for the future lack of updates.

I'll keep everyone updated with where I stand in updating the game. Don't worry - it will be done.

Some Good Updates

Few things...

1. I ordered the hard drive and it will be here in a week or two. 1TB - 7200 RPM - Western Digital. 54$. Not too bad imo, from newegg.

2. MomoCon was OK this year. I got drunk as shit for most of the convention and when I went in my room expecting my bud to be there BAM. 6 asians. For those of you that do not know me, I have an asian fetish/worship thing going on. Kinda lost my shit and got them drunk af. Worth. So much worth. I hardly spent any real time at the panels (since most of them are pretty MEH) but I did dress as a horse king, i.e., wearing a horse mask, king's crown/gown wielding a scepter. The reactions were too fun lol.

3. More helpful people are helping me with the game - and I managed to grab a possible voice actress from the anime convention. Woo hoo!

I'll keep everyone updated on future events.

Soon... soon...

Recently got a generous donation to get a new hard drive. I plan to buy one pretty soon, maybe after Momo con in Atlanta, GA. Once I get it all fixed the way I need it I can start working on the game again. Sorry for the lack of updates. Let me know if anyone here is going to Momo con this week!

New Artist

Hey people!

Sorry I haven't had time to work on the game. I still haven't been able to purchase a new hard drive. But a new artist has taken the time to draw a few sketches for the game and they look amazing! Let me know what you all think! Also, I'm still accepting donations to help pay for the commissions this guy is working on. I am also taking event submissions if you want. I keep them on my laptop for now until I can get my desktop working again. Thanks for all your patience! ~Wizardcraft

Good News Bad News

Nothing normal happens to me I swear.

Recently, I've come across a "hard disk failure iminate" error. In my experience, this error means your computer is about to shit all over your data and run super slow just to spite you.

Right now I am using said computer and attempting to transfer an ass load of data to my laptop (that doesn't allow RPG Maker VX Ace to be installed, for some odd "Windows Installer" reason) using MEGA's free 50gs and Google Drive's free 15g's. I have no idea when this will be complete, if it gets complete. All I know is that it's a bitch.

LUCKILY after going into command prompt and using "chkdsk /f c:" in elevated mode, I was able to fix the sluggish issues (most, but not all of it) and the computer still won't read my external (didn't save game data before this shit hit the fan), so I got a flash drive and put the game's data on it.

So we're in luck on that. Game data that I've worked on is safe and on the asshole laptop that doesn't like rpgmvxa. But now I gotta wait until I get paid again to purchase another interior hard drive. -,- Oh what fun that'll be. It doesn't help this computer is refurbished either. *poor man's computer*

So sadly, after I post this, I haven't a clue when I'll update the game again. I've been reading the emails you all send though. Thanks for the inspiration! =) Hopefully I'll have this computer sucking less sometime next month.

Having said all that, if someone would like to instruct me on how to get passed this message on my laptop "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."

With that, I have installed it correctly. As far as I know. I even made sure the registry looked exactly the same as the recommended settings according to Microsoft's website. I deleted it once (when it was still giving this error) and replaced it with a new copy from Microsoft's website and it still gives the error. Not sure what do at this point. Email me for some tips. inb4 delete system32. I'm not that retarded.

With love,

Image hunting sucks

Which is why I'm wondering if anyone would like to do some image hunting for me. I need battlers for the game, really badly too. It's almost hampering my ability to get progress done on the arena. I'd like battlers for these faces...












If you do find some battler images, email me at wizardcraft9000@gmail.com and give me the website you found them on because most artist require to be credited, which is perfectly fine too. I just need to see their terms of usage for their images.

The main reason why I'm asking for image hunters is not only for the obvious visual purposes, but because I will spend over an hour failing at finding a decent image of JUST ONE of these faces to match a battler image. I'm not an artist so I can't/won't be doing art for the game unless someone else does. I've had someone make art for the game (for scenes they wanted, but aren't actually in the game yet) but there isn't really a place for them yet unless I write the scenes somewhere. Which, again, I'm okay with. So if anyone would like to find these please be my guest and I'll credit you for helping me out. Thanks!

P.S. The guards don't need battlers.

Good and Gooder News But Then...

https://productforums.google.com/forum/?hl=en&pli=1#!category-topic/blogger/jAep2mLabQY

So basically TL;DR, blogger is NOT implementing that new update about adult blogs due to adult blogs being on blogger for over 10 years, but instead, they're going to reinforce their current policy.

*breathes*

I'd like to take a moment and revel that I posted this in my feedback:  "If blogger wanted a more strict policy on nudity, it would be easier to change the adult blogs that aren't labeled as adult to private until the owner changes the blog's settings, making viewers agree that they're 18+ (or whatever age in their respective country)."

I feel like they took a lesson from me. But I'm sure plenty of people working on their side were thinking the same thing that I was thinking there. But still. Yay I (think) helped.

That was the good news.

Gooder news.

I'll be working on MGR this weekend. Mostly Sunday. That's the gooder news.

This is the shit shit shitty news.

Leonard Nimoy died today at the age of 83. R.I.P., one of my childhood heroes. Thank you for everything. Live long and prosper.


Thanks for reading.
