So I've made some progress. Also hit a snag or two, but not unexpected. Also have a screenshot.
So first thing is I managed to fix the Zambeh status effect. While it wasn't something I had mentioned before, I didn't have a way to mimic the effect it had in the VX version, which was "deal damage upon recovery." I have a script that allows me to do exactly that. So yay, fixing things.
An issue I've had is that the site I generally use to convert songs to MP3's tried to send me a virus. SOOOOOO I get to find another way around that now.
I've been making progress mostly on some of the other side areas, as well as putting in a quest that will be mildly obscure. Hints are given, of course, so no worries, but it takes a little more thought than simply "I have this key, now I can go open that door." It's more of a deal of "I have this key, now where da fuq is the door?"
I'm getting there though; other stuff on the side not worth spoiling.
Unrelated to Forum Fantasy, I stumbled upon a script that allows me to stack states on a character/enemy. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept of stacking in gaming, stacking is when you have more than one instance of an effect on an enemy- for example, if the character is already poisoned, this would allow the enemy to add poison onto the character again for increased potency. While I have little use for it in Forum Fantasy, my head is ready to explode with the potential uses I could have for this in Grave Story, to the point I already stuck it in and made the Bleed status effect a stacking effect. Bleed is the status effect I've really wanted to differentiate from Poison for a while, and this should finally do it; Bleed is now overall less dangerous than Poison, but if it gets stacked several times, it can be devastating to a character or enemy, and will gradually reduce the target's physical strength (I mean, hey, anyone that's experienced blood loss before will know you start to feel woozy. XD )
At the moment, I'm trying to stay motivated, though there's been some... health issues in the family, to say the least. While I'm not the one dealing with such issues, it is affecting me emotionally somewhat, so staying focused isn't quite as easy. But I'll make it through.
