Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar Weekly Update Sun 20th Dec 2009 12:45pm

Category: Weekly Updates

My monitor broke yesterday, it seems (it wouldn't turn on in the morning), so now I've got a new one, and it's widescreen... My old resolution was 1280x1024 or something, but this one is 1900x1080.
But for some reason I can't understand (I assume it's the size of the pixels themselves), despite having very similar vertical resolutions for both monitors, this one is significantly less tall, and as such, everything on my computer now appears eye-strainingly small! Hooray. o_O
Since a lot of things are also stretched to the point of ridiculousness due to the widescreen aspect, don't be surprised if you notice minor changes to this site which make it look better to my eyes on this screen. It's not likely that I'll do anything to make it much worse on YOUR clockwork wooden computing boxes, though.

All the colours look different on this site with this monitor... They do with my laptop, too. It's surely the settings, but I've been trying to tweak them for ages and I can't find the exact match to what they were on my laptop. Certain browns on here looks greener than they did before... And this makes me wonder what colours other people see, though there's no way to ever know! o_O

Anyway, uh... This week has been irritatingly unproductive. I am ashamed to say that I've not really done ANYTHING at all! Oh, wait... I made some music for MARDEK 3 - three pieces, a minute each - so that's better than nothing, but I've been spending the vast majority of my time procrastinating, because of how off-putting all of what I need to do is.

It's not just procrastination though. I have a, uh, condition thing - an anxiety disorder, I think - which sometimes causes a strange sensation like an 'electric shock in my brain', or chemicals coursing through it, or numbness, or something hard to explain, which happens suddenly without cause, and results in my feeling irrationally anxious (mildly, but distractingly so), and causes a feeling like 'a cold hand on top of my head' which is VERY distracting and lasts all day...
It seems causeless, which is why it's a disorder; I'll just be sitting playing a game or something, thinking about nothing other than the game itself, then the 'shock' starts in the middle of a bit I've done loads of times before, for no reason.
There are CERTAINLY lifestyle factors and subconscious worries that contribute it, and I'm wondering whether the nearness of Christmas, the coldness, the fact that I'm procrastinating but need to work, etc, etc, all make it worse.
I've had it for two or three years now, and it comes and goes; it doesn't affect me for weeks sometimes, but now it's affecting me every single day.

So, uh, I'm going to try to ignore that, because I'm sure it'll subside significantly once I actually get work done!
Sorry to disappoint, though; I said I'd be looking for beta testers this week (or did I say next week?), but there's no chance of that now.

Oh, and the most irritating comments you could possibly make would be 'have you seen a doctor/psychiatrist/therapist/clown about this?' or to suggest drugs or blatantly obvious lifestyle changes like 'maybe try getting out more' or 'don't worry so much' or anything like that.
I'm merely explaining, not looking for advice.

Okay.. I know this is kind of out of the blue, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

After playing through Chapter 1 recently, (On a new PC, no less) I found that during combat, characters and enemies would go through their attack/casting/whatever animations far too quickly, compared to before, when on an older machine, everything moved a fair bit slower due to, most likely, lag.

I'm using a high end machine right now, so I don't think most people would notice this at all, finding everything to be moving too slowly instead. Would you be able to, by any chance, add in an option to slow down combat for those of us with higher end machines? It's nearly impossible to use action commands as a result.

Pseudo, what I suggest to get all your work done in a short and effective manner is to hire others to help with it. I mean, sure, it may not go smoothly at first, but with time, things will become better. I have seen many artists come and go out of fame, and many of them have started to hire interns to teach, to recieve help from, and to just help get things done. If your to get anything done, as I'm quite sure, you'll need help to achieve those masterful heights.

After a year of silence, I have spoken...

We've heard Pseudo saying he Wants to work alone many times before. However your approach is a little bit different from what suggestions I've heard until now, though I'm pretty sure someone must have suggested this before. Anyway, there's the chance that not. Maybe this idea of Pseudo having "underlings" would work or, to be more cautious, maybe Pseudo wouldn't be as reluctant to this idea as the argument of having to do somthing he doesn't want to wouldn't be so strong.
I still think Pseudo will reject that idea, but who but himself knows for sure? :)

This is one of those things that everyone seems to suggest, and every time they get the same answer...

I would just like to say that I (and I'm sure others) appreciate how often you are updating the "twitter thing" as it lets us know that you are continuing to make progress and also it is interesting and helpful to know what goes into games and the level of difficulty of making certain things in them.

On another note do you think you can give us some more spoilers of various playable classes like you told us about the blue mage-eque class?

I just thought that I should put this here, I don't want spoliers. They spoil the game, hence the name. If you are to give spoilers I ask that you don't tell everyone and disallow people talking about them in certain places. Maby make a thread on the forums to talk about spoilers. I just thought that I would say this as I don't think that many people would appreciate the game ruined when you are so close to finishing it. If other people disagree then fine, but please think about everyone before you decide weather or not to add spoilers.

I didn't mean plot or names or anything like that, I just meant more very vague class descriptions like how he said there would be a system similar to blue magic. Although I have the feeling that the blue mage will be the oddest class and the others will be some variant on basic melee, casters, and hybrids of both with some unique abilities that separate them from each other. On the other hand I can see wanting to be pleasantly surprised by new classes and such so I can respect your differing opinion on wanting to know what we can look forward to in the game.

The reason i asked about whether it was like the Final Fantasy Blue magic is because I've played games where it is different.

I've never met anyone else whos played Legend of Legaia before.
It was my favourite game as a kid and i finishedit at least 5 times.
Just to clear up in FF7 you learn the enemy's skill if you are attack with that skill.
In FF10 you have to use lancet with a chance of gaining something.
In FF9 you have to weaken them and then eat them.
And I think FF5 you learn a technique called learn but I'm not sure about other ones with blue mages if there are any.
