(July 31 to August 6, 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
This week's News of the World began with Congressional testimony tying President Joe Biden to his son's business deals, stating they were selling the Biden Brand and that Ukraine's Burisma would have folded without him. Meanwhile, controversy reigns over January 6th's Special Counceler Jack Smith, incorrectly giving information to the DOJ (Department of Justice) and under threat of a fraud indictment for omitting/altering Trump statements used as evidence. New York City is not faring well, facing over-population with illegal immigrants that are now seen as the source of Tuberculosis and Polio. More issues appear with China, an illegal medical virology lab discovered in California and attacking Philippines Coast Guard boats with high-powered water cannons in violation of international law. The U.S. Southern border hit the news as well, with Mexico's President blasting Texas for creating a buoy border, though Texas Troopers are now encountering armed migrant smugglers at the same said border. And in an odd twist, a U.S. citizen leading a cartel-connected human smuggling operation used a fake Mexican ID to get deported to avoid prosecution. Tensions run high as Moscow threatens to use Nukes of Ukraine makes gains in their counter-offensive. Meanwhile, Russia is encountering severe resistance with their Black Sea port under fire while Israeli vessels break through their grain blockade. The U.S. evacuation of the Niger Embassy, the death of Pee-Wee Herman at age 70, Isis Suicide attack in Pakistan, and much more hit the news this week.

Tech Talk
Social media and Artificial Intelligence dominated the News of the Cyber World with more and more wish AI regulation to exist. Meanwhile, rumors of Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg's actual Cage Fight are becoming less exxagerated and more substantial. Of Musk and newly rebranded X, he threatens to sue a group reportedly making baseless claims to attack his site, and vows to give assistance to anyone wrongfully fired by employers over their posts. Meanwhile, Meta found its Twitter-Clone application has lost over 80% of its activity since its launch, and recently acquired files showed that the Biden Administration pushed to have its algorithm change to push liberal content above conservative speech. But they aren't the only ones in turmoil. iPhone sales have hurt Apple for its third straight quarter, and Microsoft's security practices are now being called into question by experts. The NYC chaos following an Internet Personality's Free-Console giveaway, a West Point Professor's black-ops attempt to silence whistleblowers, China's recent age-restriction policies for smartphones, and much more hit the cybernews of the week.

Games Development
Development Discussion
If you're curious What's Up with RMers in the forum, it appears that DerVVulfman has multiple projects. One of his projects appears to recreate windows interface objects like list boxes and clickable buttons. But another project that DerVVulfman has appears to have issues, he finding the accompanying help file having to be rewritten from scratch as the older file is out-of-date for his help file editor.

Material Development
Scripts Database
Twas not a final update as he thought last week, as kyonides touched up Falconer so your virtual flying bird can activate events as your hero is commanding it from a distance.

If you needed to add a bit more graphics to your RPGMaker VXAce field map, then the OtherLayers scirpt will grant you that extra touch. With it, you can apply static pictures to your map's upper layer.

Another RPGMaker VXAce script came upon us this week when the RandomBMG was created. Made by kyonides, it lets randomly chosen background music pieces to continue throughout maps, even preventing the inherit vehicle music from taking over.

Creativity Section
Music and Audio
Is your game looking for something special? Perhaps that extra bit of zany that sets it apart from others? If so, you may find Eric Matya's Original Music and Sound FX may have something to suit your tastes. Recently, he posted two unorthodox works, the first being a crazy and kinetic melody entitled "The Wacky Factory". His second work is just as kinetic and yet very unorthodox as it is a Dubstep piece he entitled "Dubstep Danger".

Well, that's it for this week.
