(May 8 to May 14, 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
The realization the Git repositories gained popularity because of RUBY was What's on the mind of kyonides this week.

This week's News of the World takes aim at the Ukraine/Russian war as the U.S. Biden administration vows to increase aid to Ukraine while the U.S. DOJ approves transfer of Russin assets to Ukraine. Meanwhile, Kamikaze Drones are now being deployed by the Russian Military. China hit the news as Canada expels their Diplomats who were accused of targeting lawmakers, this while China expands its influence abroad with Ecuador and the Taliban. Of that, U.S. Republicans are demanding from the Homeland Security Chief why Chinese Tech is still being used for security at U.S. Ports. And of Republicans, the top investigator released new financial records and bank statements tying Hunter Biden and the Biden family to influence peddling in Romania and China. Election groups tied to Democrat mega-doners and Facebook's CEO meeting in private, Ivermectin restrictions removed in Australia which was banned in 2021, French Revolution-era calls for the guillotine against President Macron, a Jury's verdict against former President Trump, teacher's pepper-sprayed by students, a body found in an Arby's freezer, and so much more hit this week's news.

Tech Talk
AI is still hitting the News of the Cyber World as Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak issued warnings about AI, this while Spotify took time to remove thousands of AI generated pieces amidst fear of fraud concerns. A Republican Senator called out big tech after an eMail service suspended his press team for over a day, an error according to the company which declined to explain what caused the ban. And while Google is going to pay the New York times a major paycheck for content publication, House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan threatens the Social media platform which has now defied a federal subpoena. A Youtuber pleading guilty for intentionally crashing a plane, a new CEO for Twitter, China changing their laws to claim ownership over any intellectual property and more hit this week's cyber news.

Games Development
Development Discussion
If you were wondering What's up with RMers, the talk began with the cost for DLCs available for RPGMaker engine graphics, their cost and comparisons to professional industry standards. Also, some talk went on about how resources for older RPGMaker engines have been vanishing as older sites have disappeared, and how efforts were taken to archive them in Save-Point. Work by DerVVulfman on more Half-Kaiser battlers, kyonides endeavor to craft a new means to deal with skill scopes in battle, and Remi-chan's decadent-burger related video from her game in progress.

Material Development
Scripts Database
The VX port of kyonides' KEquippedSkills system had an error which involved an incorrectly named alias command. This would naturally cause an error, and naturally didn't take long for kyonides to fix.

There were individual updates to the XP and VXAce editions of KBlockStates as well as an update along all three platforms that seals the party's item bag during battle and optionally for individual heroes.

When it comes to altering the possible equipment that the party can use, the EkuipFeatures ACE by kyonides can add or remove Equipment types for any RPGMaker VXAce actor. Meanwhile, the AktorEkuip system can add or remove weapons or armors that actors are permitted regardless of class within any RPGMaker XP or VX game.

And if one wished to be an evil game developer, they can use kyonides' KSeized script for either RPGMaker XP or VX games to steal items carried by the party.

After five years, DerVVulfman had something to repair within Dalissa's Battle Cry, a script he made to allow each indivudual battler deliver custom attack sounds. In this instance, there was a flaw that prevented them from uttering screams when struck by an attack. But this bug discovered by Carlos Davilla has now been repaired.

Creativity Section
Music and Audio
This week, the Original Music Shared by Eric Matyas now includes two new compositions. His first is an ethereal piece which would be fitting in a fantasy epic when a beauiful grove or shrine has been discovered. And his second is a tense sounding cyber piece with a fast techno beat in the background. And remember that his audio can be used freely, even commercially. Just give him proper credit as his attribution page so states.

Art and Design
Feel free to witness in her orchid beauty, the lastest render within Remi-chan's Neato Arty thread. The Twilight in Velvet is another demoness, eldrich magicks coming from behind. And enjoy the speed draw video she made, whether to the heavy hitting ochestral score or to the vocals of Wild Fire as they sing Of Snow and Ember from Honkai: Star Rail.

Well, that's it for this week.
