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
Yet more train derailments hit this week's News of the World, as one with over twenty cars ran off the tracks in Montana and Norfolk Southern suffered another derailment with two of the crew hospitalized. Russia is becoming more concerned as Finland joined NATO and New Zealand is deepening its ties to the alliance. The arraignment of Former President Trump is being viewed as problematic and concerning, as the court's judge was a Biden campaign contributor and El Salvador's President suggests that the the U.S.'s justice system was weaponized against political rivals. On top of that, the charges are now appearing even weaker then imagined. On economics, Johnson & Johnson's agreed to a massive settlement over Talc-based cancer claims while Branson’s Virgin Orbit filed for bankruptcy. Meanwhile layoffs are in the works as McDonalds began shutting US offices. China's denial of supplying the Fentanyl poisoning the U.S. after Mexico sent a letter requesting President Xi to cut back on shipments, OPEC+'s cutback on oil output and Japan's recent purchases of Russian oil, nearly 20,000 children lost by the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement found sexually abused and way much more hit this week's news.

In the world of Weird Science, a new study suggests that autism may be linked by higher levels of lithium in drinking water taken by pregnant mothers.

Tech Talk
For those who care about social media, Elon Musk's reclassifaction of both NPR and the New York times on Twitter hit the News of the Cyber World as well as his work to crackdown on fraudulent reports and complaints. TicTok's troubles continue as it is now banned from Australian government devices, though the bill in the U.S. Congress is being stalled by activists and those warning the proposed law may be too expansive and exploitable. Hackers have taken advantage of exploiting popular Wordpress plugins and a Russian hacker group broke into and released records from an Australian school district onto the dark web. And be wary of bogus phone calls as scammers have begun recording voices to AI clone it for malicious purposes. More material such as the dangers of ChatGPT are also available to read.

Games Development
Development Discussion
It appears that further devleopments of their works is What's up among RMers like DerVVulfman and Remi-chan. While DerVVulfman works to re-design his Visual Battlers script using the new options he made for Ah-sung's Paperdoll weeks before, he faced challenges such as ensuring the versitile direction-based layering was functional, and later that he could gain content to change equipment shown on enemy battlers. Meanwhile, Remi-chan was busy re-balancing the audio in her game. But that was for content she already had running, not the material she revealed later this week as to the final arc's main hero's development and the bosses that must be encountered and beaten.

Complete Projects
It was a few weeks ago that Starmage reappeared, releasing quality wallpapers various games under her belt. But that wasn't enough. This week, she unveiled her latest, Stellar Bewitching made with RPGMaker MZ. A game that combines fantasy adventure with romance comedy, follow Elya and her slime on this roller coaster ride as they enter the Limbo realm to find her a boyfriend. Strap in, things are about to get bumpy.

Material Development
Scripts Database
The most recent version of KyoAlert is now available, allowing the game developer to decide if alerts will show, though the script calls are currently not available for RPGMaker MV users.

A small featurette made for RPGMaker VXAce by request, kyonides' SaveUpdate Scriptlet updates the game header to include the current map name to your saves.

Creativity Section
Art and Design
Who doesn't love the kitsune, the fabled fox demons of Japan? For those that adore them, then feel free to look upon the latest of Remi-chan's Neato Arty thread thing! The Crimson Demonium is the title to her latest, the image of Remira, a vulpinous damsel in a red top and skirt set against a sea of orchid and black. If fasscinated, a speed draw is available for viewing and listening pleasure.

Literature Section
Venturing into the pages of Remi-chan's Writing Snippets~ affords one some future lore of her games. And despite the problems caused by her internet provider, Remi-chan was able to reveal the character development of one of her principle heroines for the next chapter of her game.

Well, that's it for this week.
