(October 31 to November 6, 2022)
Daylight Savings Time Adjusted

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
Do you know how many of your fellow members had birthdays this week? A lot. In fact, this week MoonBeamDust[Thread=3020][Highlight], Bloodrose and WOW[/Highlight][/Thread] were listed at having the same birthday. Next up, we had the shared birthdays of AzorMachine[Thread=3020][Highlight] and Starmage[/Highlight][/Thread] with no cake wasted this time. And these were followed soon after by luke128th's birthday. Next up, we had the shared birthdays of thenix[Thread=3020][Highlight], deus69xxx and ScorpioTHK[/Highlight][/Thread] with no cake wasted this time. Not long after, Nightmar[Thread=3020][Highlight]'s , flynnmichael81's and krum110487[/Highlight][/Thread] 's birthdays came and went. And this week wrapped up as LilEvil3000[Thread=3020][Highlight], Nyakuya and Pandappuccino[/Highlight][/Thread] all had the same birthday.

General Chat
At the end of the month, DerVVulfman found a musical number if you inquired from him "What are YouTubing?", a musical number from The Nightmare bfore Christmas.

A warning for parents hit this week's News of the World as fentanyl pills have been smuggled in and disguised as candy for Halloween. And a Congressman fires member of his staff the moment he learned she had ties to the Chinese Embassy. Meanwhile, those wondering about social media will learn that Twitter and Facebook had been having regular meetings with the U.S. DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to censor content. But right after Elon Musk took control of Twitter, he fact-checked a recent post by the White House which was then immediately deleted. And mainstream media NBC quickly pulled a story about Paul Pelosi's attacker. Russia balked by the U.N. when asked to investigate Ukraine for Biological weapons, the Supreme Court balking a request to dismiss protestor's injuries outside the home of the Turkish ambassador, and much more is present to read this week.

Tech Talk
The gripe of some people over Twitter charging $8 (USD) for the Blue Service tick marks hit the News of the Cyber World with new owner Elon Musk replying that the original "lords & peasants system for who has or doesn't have a blue checkmark is bull****". Meanwhile, a warning must be given to users of Experian, as an exploit in the tool may allow partial Social Security Numbers to be revealed.

Games Development
Development Discussion
For those wondering how their fellow forumers are doing in their game development endeavors, its easy enough to find out as they share What's up with their fellow RMers. Certainly, Kain Nobel has as he revealed a pair of music videos, one that is a Project ReGaL official music video. Meanwhile Remi-chan revealed various cutscenes and crafted many more events for her game, a number that astonished both Kain Nobel and Steel Beast 6Beets making the Garbage Goddess blush. Meanwhile, a query by Steel Beast 6Beets into a RGSS command to simply end/close the game was answered by DerVVulfman with various examples, followed up by kyonides stating that the simplest version would generate an internal error handled by whichever engine was used.

Upcoming Projects
It has been well over a year since we had an update. But this week, KDC revealed that Memorie is still progressing as he is adding Database option to his game while renaming his Challenge Mode option. Some things are being trimmed, however, as Emil's story is being eliminated. And there may be some reworked maps in the future.

Material Development
Scripts Database
For those users of RPGMaker VXAce, kyonides created the Equipment TP Reset ACE system to erase your TP when you change specific types or equipment.

For all three Ruby script versions of the RPGMaker engine, the KToggleButtons set of scripts by kyonides allows you to create radio toggle buttons which users may use instead of text options such as "Yes/No". There were some visual glitches in the demos first uploaded, but nothing of importance.

Resources Database
At long last, the HALF KAISER BATTLER PROJECT has armor available for their characters. Chainmail shirts and vests are present for characters both male and female. And by the end of the week, chainmail pants became available for female heroes.

Creativity Section
Literature Section
Writing Somebody Else's Story was supposed to be just another oneshot, but there was something tricky about this Huxley, the self proclaimed author, that kept me from revealing everything I know about him in a single chapter. Even so I strongly believe it still is a short story. Thus, don't miss any chapter, guys!

Special Projects
ReGaL (RPG Game Lab)
Things may slow down where the REGAL Editor Application may be involved as Kain Nobel thinks he might need to take a second job. However, he is basically done working on his album and is already planning to study up and work on the map and event-system editor next year. He took note from DerVVulfman anout the differences between some Tilemap scripts that were available and began working on some shader experiments with the graphics class. And he only just released an official ReGaL music video he made in concert with the Graphics module.

Well, that's it for this week.
