New RPG Maker Times Livestreams Page (Facebook)

No Comments

I created a new page, RPG Maker Times Livestreams, for my live-streams.

I will mostly live-stream SMILE GAME BUILDER game dev, including my own game, Conflux, as well as games – Skyrim, Witcher, Fallout 4, and other games (including indie games) – which will usually videos from previous live-streams.

In the beginning, however, I’m going to start test-streaming various games, classic, indie and new to see what works on my mid-spec rig. Details will follow.

We’re looking at streaming from this page. It’ll be either here or on YouTube. Stream themes and times are yet to be decided.

GAME DEV: Fog of War Effect In Smile Game Builder

No Comments

Here’s a nice little "fog of war" effect for exploring the rooms (in Conflux, the game I’m working on in SMILE GAME BUILDER).

This is a feature in my game Conflux, where when you enter the room it and all of its contents are revealed and when you leave it’s covered the contents are hidden again. Eventually, all rooms will have this feature.

I’ve been asked how I achieved this, but for now I’m keeping this method a secret and I’m neither confirming nor denying any guesses on how it’s done. Perhaps in time I’ll create a tutorial on it. For now, however, I’m not going to.
