(March 13 to March 19, 2023)

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
General Chat
When he learned that a person prominent in the Climate Change community deleted a prediction she made five years ago, the revelation of apparently fifty years of erroneous climate predictions was What's on the mind of DerVVulfman, even finding a video starring a vulcan scientist in the '70s.

IF you were afraid of big lizards, you might not want to ask kyonides the query of What are YouTubing? Still, you may have a laugh seeing the Rumble video of a very stubborn gator gate crasher.

With the current finances everyone has to deal with day to day, banking establishments hit this week's News of the World. Though customers found they were going to have access to their funds at the recently collapsed Silicon Valley Bank, it was discovered that executives claims of receiving 'modest' bonuses before the fall was in the tens of millions. And while U.S. President Biden stated he would not bail out the bank, CNN's Kevin O’Leary stated that the White House was nationalizing the banks so taxpayer money would be "backstopped by the government", or covered by the taxpayers. Meanwhile, Shaquille O’Neal is currently avoiding being served papers as class-action lawsuits are hitting all celebrities who endorsed Bankman Fried's failed FTX. Arrest warrants hit this week's news as Former President Trump claims that 'soft-on-crime' D.A. Alvin Bragg want him busted over his company’s classification of a $130,000 reimbursement. Meanwhile, the International Criminal Court (ICC) had issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin for war crimes. Germany's Manoj Jansen, a former councillor was fined for faking neo-Nazi hate crimes against himself, not unlike Jussie Smollet in 2019. And insofar as a reversal, lawyers representing Q-Anon's Buffalo-horn hat wearing Jacob Chansley filed papers for a vacate-conviction motion citing that the sentence was imposed in violation of the Constitution and laws of the United States. Hunter Biden's admission that the laptop with all the eMail comminications was his, the riots in Paris over President Macron's unilateral changing of retirement laws without a vote, the harrassment and downing of a U.S. drone by Russian pilots over international waters, and much more hit this week's news.

Tech Talk
ChatGPT hit this week's News of the Cyber World as General Motors is looking for a Microsoft partnership, this while Fake ChatGPTs are being released to hijack websites and Malware is being designed to use the AI to bypass online security features. It's been bad news for TicToc as California, New Zealand and the United Kingdom works to ban the application, and the U.S. White House is pressuring the owner to sell TicTok off. And for annoying telemarketers, bad news has hit as the FCC (Federal Comminication Commission) has finally listened to customer complaints and ordered the blocking of robocall messages from various likely source numbers. The upcoming release of Twitter's algorythm, companies that lost money from the SVB collapse, and much more hit this week's cyber news.

When kyonides said that Windows 10 WAS Unsafe!, he made the case with a report of eighty security flaws that needed a new security patch by Microsoft. Of the flaws, one involving Microsoft Outlook and another involving Windows Smartscreen were those that were most exploited and attacked.

Games Development
Development Discussion
The discussion of massive projects was What's up among our RMers as JayRay juggles between animation, texturing and video uploading. And of massive projects, Remi-chan uploaded the latest demo of her game, replete with a video trailer with the latest bullet-hell battles.

Complete Projects
Just as we were graced last week, Starmage released yet one more vibrant desktop wallpaper. This time for Faith in Feathers, his RPGMaker XP game, Starmage used the Leonardo AI art generator to recreate his heroes against a brilliant sky blue backdrop.

Upcoming Projects
March the 14th holds a special meaning for Remi-chan as that is the day she desires to release her games and demos. And on that date this week, the third demo of Fantasia came out. The initial page has been updated with current links despite her fatigue.

Material Development
An expansive and highly detailed graphic system, RPG Tools by Martin Mais allows for the creation of character sprites and more. Posted by JayRay, this program allows one to choose cells from massive spritesheets by coordinates.

Scripts Database
For anyone using RPGMaker XP and has need for an opening splash screen script, then check out KuickSplasher XP by kyonides if you are looking for something simple to use.

Special Projects
JayVinci Studios
JayVinci Resources
Early this week, the number of animation frames within the "JayVinci" Resurrection changed from six to eight, this giving JayRay a bit of a head-to-wall moment. But he worked out a system with three automation features and batch system project which he eventually dubbed ODIN. Meanwhile, he has been toying with his masking feature, touching up ODIN in the meantime.

Well, that's it for this week.
