(October 11 to October 17, 2021)

Welcome dear readers to the latest issue of the Weekly Gazette! Here in the Gazette, we give you the news in brief of what occurred in the past week as well as provide any news happening in Save-Point itself

Official Area
Announcements and Updates
This week, DerVVulfman made an announcement about our forum's Recent Spammer Intrusion, informing members that roughly five hundred new accounts appeared, and most had come from toxic sources with many using TOR proxies. Of these, he went through and subsequently banned. He returned later to mention that he went through the accounts once again as many used disposable eMails that were likewise tied to spam activity. Meanwhile, someone registered using foul language by intent within his username, so DerVVulfman found he had to adjust the warning message within the Registration page to remind registrants about decorum.

Do you know what days past by this week? If you thought it was someone's birthday, you were right. We started this week celebrating the triple birthday of tobiax, NatillaAmarilla and Azulsorahogosha, which was followed by the birthdays of Rednayt. After that, Raphael Rpg Games and rellz93 had birthday cake to enjoy. It was followed soon after by the shared birthdays of LagunaX1, Bakunin and iceflux. And the end of the week, Legacy, wrathx and morlockhater had a birthday cake to share.

General Chat
Something that was unexpected was Was on the mind of DerVVulfman. His first time ordering Chinese Takeout since Covid, he returned to one of his regular restaurants. What he didn't expect was that his Chinese was good enough to correct the waitress who got the order wrong.

Forum Games & Nonsense
This week, DerVVulfman pulled out one more comic pen-and-paper tale of old where a bunch of heroes readied themselves into combat while one of them discovered themselves in a A FISHY SITUATION. The story, as told by OverdrivePrime, tells the tale of a party of adventurers who underestimated their adversaries and could never guess the fate of their wizard.

Games Development
Development Discussion
We do love to work on our games, and sometimes we like to share what we are doing. If so, you can always connect with friend and say What's up, RMers? Right now, kyonides is working on his KPostOffice XP script, a feature to deliver parcels. However, he does wonder if anyone has additional suggestions. And after that, be ready for two videos by Remi-Chan. In each of the two, one of her many heroines must face life or death against immortal powers.

Code Support
It's been some time since zlsl asked for some help, but now wonders if the ACBS - Atoa Custom Battle System and TP System by Moghunter can be merged. For those unaware, Atoa's battlesystem is a sideview system by Victor Sant. And the TP system, or Tactical Points system was established in Final Fantasy XI similar in nature to Limit Breaks. However, the Mog variation appears more like a secondary version of Skill Points.

Material Development
Scripts Database
Last week, kyonides released KAppraise for RPGMaker XP and RPGMaker VX. This week, he ported his system which lets one appraise items over to RPGMaker VXAce. New cheat functions have been added to all versions, and he later returned to tweaked the graphics delay when options are depleted.

Resources Database
This forum is definitely for game making enthusiasts. And for that, Eric Matyas has willingly revealed his Massive Library of Free Images for Everyone, this found at his SoundImage board using the Free Game Art and Free Images links in the menu bar. All of the graphics, including seamless tile-able textures, are his own work. And all he asks is due credit as requested in his website. More will come, so come back soon.

Creativity Section
Music and Audio
Two new pieces of music have now appeared as Eric Matyas continues to Share his Original Music, these two being entitled "Galactic Pole Position" and "Runs on Rigel 3". Both fast paced, one made DerVVulfman reminisce some older sci-fi animes of the 80s.

Art and Design
How are you at recognizing the strange tales of theoretical physics? Well, the Remi-chan's Neato Arty thread thing is taking a shot at it as our artist has released her own femme fatale variation of Schroedinger's Cat. Will she only exist in the internet if someone finds her page? And for those wondering how this feline beauty was created, a speed-draw video is also available.

Well, that's it for this week.
