chain of lucidity (trial) version 0.01a...Shit, I almost forgot I still had this.
Well, there's not much to say, anyway. See this blog post for a download link, as well as this blog post for important information, particularly in regards to the use of assets.
TGA website - major layout updateHeeeeeeeey...
Yeah. I'm still alive. And still using DeviantArt to some small degree. Amazing, innit?
I don't even have anything terribly interesting to say. Progress on chain of lucidity has been coming along well enough (I've implemented furigana support into my dialogue system yesterday).
You know what else happened yesterday? Team Gaijin Alex's website got a complete overhaul after languishing in shittily-designed pages with little content for nearly two whole years. Here's what I changed:
replaced the tacky diamond-patterned background with a simple three-color gradient
recreated various image assets and improved the page layout for a more professional look
commissioned wodkanna for a group drawing of the current three members of the team in order to finally have something to put on the "Meet the Team" page (although she unfortunately wasn't able to accept payment, so she ended up doing it for free
Devious Journal EntryNo, DeviantArt. Fuck you. Perhaps you shouldn't have jacked up the cost of premium membership. Better yet, perhaps you should actually give a fuck about your userbase before asking us to give a fuck about you. You're basically the new YouTube in that you keep shoveling stupid shit upon stupid shit that no one cares about or even wants. All the while, when someone is getting their art stolen, you don't do shit. And you ESPECIALLY don't do shit when someone's being harrassed relentlessly by someone else. Instead, no matter how many complaints you get about someone, you always resort to the stock response of "block and ignore", as if that's gonna make the problem go away. You don't even go after people if they're spreading obvious hate speech or slander/libel about someone, instead claiming that it doesn't count as harrassment if you're seeking out comments (yeah, right. As if you couldn't find them on submissions showing up in your watch feed, you one-track-minded fuck
It's been a while, hasn't it?Lately, it seems like the cool thing to make a journal entry explaining what you've been up to if you haven't shown any activity on dA for months, so I want in on that fun.
Except... well, I can't really say I've been as productive as I'd have wanted to be. As some of you may know, I was at A-kon last June, along with Spaztique, FullHitPoints, BleachBummer, HTFCirno2000, ChibioChen, LikeThisRLYMatters and Ceej39. That was fun, and I got a taste of just how massive and intense the Undertale fandom could be when assembled in a single room (hell, I was half an hour early for the panel and the line was already curving three times). On Sunday, my father gave me a phone call because I completely forgot to text him, so he got worried about me. Outside of that, I was also texting everyone else quite a bit, which really ran up the phone bill. Totally worth it, though.
There's also this game I've been working on, but since I need to make the
FUCK! I missed my anniversary!Dangit, I had a journal written up that I intended to post on the first of May, but I completely forgot about it, and now it's nearly 4 days later.
Oh well, just pretend we're living three days in the past as you're reading the following...
It's May 1. This day marks the third anniversary of my membership at the Walfas Station Wagon, but to be honest, if it hadn't been that specific day, I probably wouldn't even be able to remember it.
In these last three years, I've grown as a person a lot more rapidly than in the preceding 17-ish years. I was kind of a problem child, really. Getting bullied by what seemed to be pretty much the entire school back in elementary school does that to you, and having autism to cope with doesn't exactly make things any easier. The internet was the only place where I could forge lasting friendships, but even then it wasn't always easy. When you're a kid as socially inept as I was, covering up your eccentricities is hard.
Well, long story short, I had a b
What I've been up toI haven't really submitted much in terms of content lately, have I? I know I'm not exactly obligated to, but I figure I should at least provide some sign of life for those who I don't talk to every day or aren't following me on social media.
Starting with my semester break back in early February, I began feverishly working on a game of my own, but after I got back from visiting my father late March and came down with a cold (with the only remnants of that now being a dry cough), I lost my momentum and haven't really been doing any work on it since. Even now, real-life issues are weighing heavily on me in ways I will not elaborate on.
The only remotely productive thing I've been doing lately is create templates for MajiKana's packaging. I've made some pretty sizable progress with it over the last few days. At some point, I'll also need translations, specifically into German (already covered by yours truly), French, Spanish (already covered), Italian, Dutch (most likely covered), Swedish
HRtP Lunatic Liveplay #5Holy shit, it's the halfway mark.
Anyway, yeah, just making a journal here to announce that DeityDiz93, BleachBummer and I have decided on the next stream's date: 5 March 2016, 5:00 PM central. Don't miss it!
And here's some shameless plugging.
HRtP Lunatic Liveplay #4For now, the date of the stream is going to be February 13, same time as usual. This may end up being delayed by a week, though.
HRtP Lunatic Liveplay #3It felt like forever since the last one, but DeityDiz93 and I have decided on the date for the next one: 16 January, 5:00pm central.
Well, the time may be subject to change, depending on Diz's schedule. Also, I've been playing way too much PSO2 over the last month. I'm gonna have to practice a lot to get all the rust off of my skills.
Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
