M-MY COMPUTER BROKE. I have no way to continue this project currently. I CALL FOR AN HIATUS.
Seriously though, that really sucks. I was looking forward to updates..
Feb 28 2012, 01:39 PM
Oh man that news hit a real sour note for me.
Maybe I'm just being musical about this, but we're all gonna suffer some 'breve'-ment issues over this project.
Feb 28 2012, 10:40 PM
;o; sorry guys, my dad is working to fix my computer and he let me borrow his laptop meanwhile, but he won't let me install RMXP.
btw Zackwell... brevement? Really? xD
Mar 2 2012, 01:14 PM
Ohh look it's a concept of all them chars. Probably some important artwork.
Mar 4 2012, 11:25 PM
;A; Cookie, that drawing is so beautiful.. THOSE POSES! THOSE EXPRESSIONS!!!!! I'm assuming that this means you have your computer back and will be continuing this project... THIS CALLS FOR CELEBRATION!!!
Mar 5 2012, 07:21 AM
Hahah XD thanks Hya. No I don't have my comp yet. But it's OK, I'll try to convice my dad to let me have my own user in his comp, and install ALL of the programs. ALL OF THEM.
Mar 5 2012, 11:46 AM
WB cookie! \o/ Nice artwork, although I don't like the hat of the second girl on the left.
Mar 6 2012, 06:19 AM
Thx Saul ;v; BTW that isn't a hat! XD It's the top of her spear. Kinda looks like a hat tho :\ I'll change it XDD
Mar 7 2012, 02:03 PM
You can't just get people's hopes up then stop! T^T
Oh well, let me know if I can help you out at all.
Mar 9 2012, 08:42 AM
AMG I'm so sorry Eden~~ ;o; But I promise I'll have this project up and running soon! And then I'll manage to do my bases in a jiffy. I promise *does le pinky swear*
May 22 2012, 09:42 AM
OK so I finally got down to finishing a New! Cookie ref I've been toying around with
it's this one here
and I needed the color refs and I noticed omigosh the people I drew they were so slim I'm kind of ashamed right now so I'm gonna hide in a corner.
p.s.- I haven't been lazy, it's just that my computer isn't fixed yet, and my dad won't let me install programs
EDIT: asdfghj MY COMPUTER IS FINALLY FIXED YES it was just a problem with the power cable, and all the files were hidden (dunno why)
May 25 2012, 10:52 AM
Cookie in her Queen dress! New sprites, maybe? They're kinda big... but I think they're adorable. Criticism REALLY needed here!
May 30 2012, 09:42 AM
OMG //hasn't been here for a LOOOOOOONG time. ANYWAY! I just LOVE how she looks in the ref. Like seriously. That face. Is adorable. Yes, //really likes her with that hairstyle. Is that... a mustache necklace? Lolz. Cookie in her queen dress looks ok. I mean, she looks great, but IDK if poofy dresses suit her.
May 30 2012, 12:47 PM
Wow, that is adorable!
Also, I envy your ability to draw on the computer and color your work. All I have are sketches! ><
If you continue to go far with the graphics, this project will definitely stand out~
Even more so than my project. Lols. (AKA I'm too lazy to make all the graphics from scratch right now).
You helped me when my motivation is down, so I shall comment on your project and make you feel goooooooood.
May 30 2012, 01:15 PM
Yay! No longer on hiatus due to computer issues! It's great that you didn't lose anything, and I'm happy to see that things are moving along again.
I love your art style (duh!).
Cookie in the queen dress reminds me of the Princess and the Frog because of the pastel green and poofy dress (here's an image that kind of explains it better). It's adorable, but I can hardly see it on my big screen (my smaller screen went dead, so now my dad gave me one of his humongous screens and... it's way big...). XD
May 30 2012, 04:41 PM
ITS > SO ALIVE!!!!!!!! I love how the picture just, "BLENDS" in with everything! I'd like to ask, wha tprogram are you using?
woah, so many replies all of a sudden! @Hya/Guinevere: Yeah it's a mustache necklace. And it's beautiful. Not to mention important to the plot, yes yes. What do you mean, puffy dress doesn't suit her?!! >:0 that's offensive!!! XDD just kidding, but I love puffy dress. @Strawberry: Hnng, thank youuu ;v; I have a tablet, which is great help XD It's not that I'm like, a super artist or smth. Y-you really think my project can stand out?! t-that's so nice! sbhjkl you are succeeding in making me feel good XDD @X-M-O: Yes! I'm so happy too! Even though I feel kinda dumb for having all my files hidden for... uh... 3 months? >-> Hehe, thanks! >v< Yeah, it does kind of look like her... except the dress is shorter and uh, not so sparkly '^v^ Do you mean like you can hardly see it because it's too small? XDD it's already pretty huge for a sprite, so I can't make it any larger, or mapping is gonna be hellish XDD @Renkai: Thanks! I use PaintToolSAI for all my pictures, and Paint.Net to make the backgrounds transparent. Well, to make images smooth, I think anti-aliasing is the best solution, no? '^v^
Also, have Miky in her, uh... inspiring pumpkin witch outfit.
It's Queen Pumpkin! BTW she also has a mustache necklace.
And finally, I am shamelessly a shameless shipper. Should I ruin this perfectly decent game with a shameless shipping?
May 31 2012, 09:01 AM
Yes, yes, Cookie, shameless shipping LOL mustache necklace important to the plot. Back to the dress: I meant I'm not sure if they fit her personality. I expected her to wear something more... comfortable? Informal? IDK But yes, I also love puffy dresses (just not wearing them.)
May 31 2012, 09:05 AM
XDD You say that because you don't know my shameless shipper self lol But it is! LOTS of colorful stuff happens related to that necklace. (Warning: May not be colorful) Well technically she IS forced to wear a queen's dress xD She can't exactly walk around her castle wearing tattered jeans and a baggy tee! XDD
May 31 2012, 11:30 AM
I didn't mean it should be made larger, lol. Just that it's hard for me to see because of my large screen resolution. XD
I adore the pumpkin outfit! The dress is so cute and totally resembles a pumpkin!
(Disney's Cinderella. Should definitely wear. That. As her primary outfit.)
How shameless is your shameless shipping?
May 31 2012, 10:47 PM
Oh xD What's the screen's resolution? Now I'm curious lol Hahaha, thanks! >v< (Lol. now I'm thinking of Miky using her witch's broom to clean up XDD)
VERY shameless. I was thinking of how I could add it the other day and when I noticed, I had completely vacuum-cleaned the whole plot and replaced it with my shipping. I was like: damn, this wasn't supposed to happen So I'm not sure I should even add it.
May 31 2012, 11:30 PM
1920 by 1080; but the one he uses is 2000 something by some other ungodly number. XD Hurts my eyes, so I'm going to be replacing this one soon... And the glare is terrible; I'm looking into a mirror (that's how bad the glare is on this screen). <_<
Oh, lol. That shameless. XD
Jun 1 2012, 07:39 AM
Lol. That's shameless shipping. Anyway... do you have a projected date for releasing a demo? ////reeeeaaaaaallly wants to play
Jun 1 2012, 08:43 AM
Hnng, demo?! There are too many graphical issues for me to even THINK of releasing a demo! ): I will do my best, though.
Jun 4 2012, 08:28 AM
//waiting patiently ... Screenies at least? //bricked
Jun 4 2012, 09:06 AM
FINE HAVE A SCREENIE
Doesn't even have everything I want it to
It has no shading to make it look crappy but already succeeds in doing it. The little thing in the bottom is Mrs. Default Sprite Size. So, you see, this map isn't that big. I'm gonna blow EVERYONE'S computers up.
Jun 4 2012, 09:14 AM
Beautiful, Cookie! I love it!!!!! No, it doesn't look crappy (it'll probably look even better with shading). ASADFG Now CAN'T WAIT for demo Cookie you must work on it night and day
Jun 4 2012, 11:05 AM
asdfghj do you love everything I do Hya XDDD Even if it's just a crappy shadeless map!? Actually it will because MY LANDSCAPE DRAWING SKILL IS ZERO.
fffffuuu I have a life besides gaming you know XDDDD fortunately my tests end tomorrow so mb I'll be able to Maybe
also on a side note, this game will feature tons and tons of funyarinpa.
Jun 4 2012, 11:14 AM
She's right, though.
That is pretty darn good. D=
Jun 4 2012, 11:17 AM
Cause you're so good at everything cookie I very much doubt that your skill is zero, cookie. Pffft real life is unimportant. LOLOLOL I'm on summer break, already done with tests and finals trololol What is... funyarinpa...?
Jun 4 2012, 11:20 AM
fine compliment me alllll you want I still think my landscaping sucks You've never seen the clouds I draw. They look like goddamn cotton candy XDDD
nooo I wanna be on summer break toooo
What do you mean, what is funyarinpa?! ...you mean, you don't know?!! That's... that's practically BLASPHEMOUS!! Say you're sorry! Apologize to the funyarinpa!!
(lol, just trolling. Go google it, Hya XD)
Jun 4 2012, 11:25 AM
Oh, lol, some weird picture from a DS game. I wonder how you'll fit it in xD //yes, I've seen your clouds, Cookie, they look very nice. You forget that you have a gallery on deviantart. Besides, clouds DO look like cotton candy IRL.
Jun 4 2012, 11:42 AM
Not just any DS game, miss. One of the best ever made. And no, they don't look good. It's like a bunch of blurred circles glued together with crappy shading.
asdfgh maybe a LITTLE but still my cloud shading technique is crap. Fortunately my gamestyle is cartoony and cellshaded XD
Jun 4 2012, 12:14 PM
The thread is going off topic. Side conversations are best kept in PM and the forums for feedback.
Jun 7 2012, 04:03 AM
Oh hi Cookie, I'm forget to CT. I see that you put back to work, in case your computer is working again? Well ... the screen is nice, I would say very minimalist.
Jun 7 2012, 11:22 AM
Hi Saul! It's nice to see you again. :3 Yeah, my computer is working again. It's really great! Ahh... minimalist? Well, I haven't added everything yet, and the shading isn't done yet, so it'll probably look worse better in the end XD

But I refer to the style with which designs, not to the mapping
Jun 12 2012, 10:14 AM
Hai peeps! Just to tell that, from tomorrow till Saturday I'll be gone in a student exchange, but afterwards it'll be summer and I can work lots, woohoo! So if you don't hear from me, it's ok, it just means I'm busy.
Jun 21 2012, 05:02 AM
hnng I need to revamp a lot of crap here. A LOT of crap. As in, like, everything needs arrangement. And I need some time to brush up my art skills (isometric pixelling seems fun) Besides, I'm trying to learn some programming languages... so I might not update for a little while, but I'll never leave, or stop working! ;v; S-so see you soon, peeps!
Here's my unfinished take at isometric. What do you guys think?
Jun 25 2012, 08:18 AM
The map looks really nice Cookie. At least, compared to most of what I've been able to google up.
Jul 9 2012, 07:05 AM
Updated some stuff on the first post, people! Also, the chibis in the header are temporary- I will redo them sometime in the future. I'll add the descriptions of the rest of the characters soon! But nothing on the mystery two ;D
Aug 1 2012, 09:36 AM
I just realized something today. I've been spending (wasting might be a better word) WAY too much time trying to decide what style should I use. Now, what I am gonna do is start working on events with the RTP as placeholder (until I finally know WHAT I want to do with the graphs) and release a demo (eventually). How does that sound?
Aug 1 2012, 10:20 AM
sounds good , sometimes thinking it too much will just be a time waster as long as your happy doing it, its fine
Aug 6 2012, 05:07 PM
Working on it my computer has been particularly faulty lately, though. It crashes easily and is very slow. I sure hope it isn't dying. On a sidenote, where did everyone go? I feel lonely, nearly no one posts here anymore D: am I boring or something? I know I sometimes leave this to long hiatuses unwarned, but I have a lot to think about this...
Aug 6 2012, 10:39 PM
I think they just might've ran out of things to say or relate to. o.o or maybe they just thought their support wasn't really needed. ..Of course, maybe you are boring. O.O I mean, sure I'm posting a pretty lengthy message, its 2:13am, i am putting down emoticons, staying up to write this, and have games running in the background, but i am dying of boredom right now. /(>v<) /(>o •) (>o •) (joke (!))
I would love to see the different graphic styles you have though btw. Maybe your thread will get more attention if you post art too-- people like that kinda stuff. It might also even help you decide on what style to go with. : )
As for your computer crashing, if it's a laptop, then I know what you mean... my laptop overheats all the time, it's a real pain. Have you tried defragging it/ deleting junk/ cleaning the air vents? Another option is disabling or delaying the built-in services, or increasing the memory usage of photoshop slightly of that's an issue.
Aug 6 2012, 10:56 PM
no your not boring
.....i really just dont have anything to say , i prefer to talk if i have a point to say or probably when im really bored
my habit is to talk by putting point especially using number
Aug 7 2012, 04:51 AM
Nice game good luck
Aug 8 2012, 09:33 AM
Okay, so I'm gonna post the art styles here soon. I was out yesterday and today was house-cleaning day (who knew cleaning a bathroom can be so long and tedious?) so I was busy most of the day. My mom'll be giving me her old laptop soon, so I can be up the whooole night xD anyway, my computer is off, and I still have to draw samples from art styles I only thought about, so I am commenting from my phone.
Aug 16 2012, 10:16 AM
OKAY POSTING GUYS Feel like I've delayed this more than I should orz I'm so lame and derp.
Facesets that aren't exactly just faces: I think I've got these covered. A few twitches in the perspective (front or 3/4?) but the style remains the same.
Mapping: The biggest issue. I feel that my landscaping sucks (guess what- it really does orz) and that I'm not a capable mapmaker, be it antialiased, pixel, or isometric.
Antialiased Maps, my lameness at its most.
Isometric Maps, proving I hate pixels ever since.
Sprites: I've only thought a few styles, mostly based after other games, since pixels and sprites are not my cup of tea.
The WLO style (for antialiased maps)
The FFXII Revenant Wings style (for iso maps)
My cute sprites XDD (for antialiased maps)
SO GIMME YO OPINIONS. I need them.
