(September 4 to September 10, 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
New to the forum and new to the community at large is LegionBreaker. He figures he will be more the quiet type, but may wish to join in a conversation if it peaks his interest. Greeted he was this week by DerVVulfman who pointed out a few skills of which he may have talent.

General Chat
It appears the it is a season for games to be on sale, and they again appear to be What's on the mind of kyonides. And finding games on GOG may appeal to some as he did remind that you need not be on Steam, or tracked by Steam, to play these classic games. But now he has some new games, including some sandbox games, to entertain him for some weeks if not months.

The things one may find if you ask the right person the question of "What are YouTubing?" may garner a real laugh. For this week, DerVVulfman found that someone recreated a classic Tom & Jerry cartoon with characters from a popular action Gatcha game.

This week, the News of the World was saddened by the thousands that died and were injured in the disastrous Morocco Earthquake. The war between Ukraine and Russia continues as Putin establishes deals with Turkey as he blows up Ukraine's ports. But Russia ousted by Cuba, finding that Russia was promoting fake construction jobs and coercing Cubans to fight in their armies. The phrase Islamic Extremism is frowned upon, but a Mosque in Birmingham was found to preach the stoning of women and waging Jihad, a group linked to ISIS was busted in Austria, and Pakistan was attacked by Afghani terrorists with the weapons the Biden Administration left behind in the disastrous 2021 evacuation. Within the U.S, Illegal Immigration is a hotbed as NYC's mayor says the city will be destroyed by it while funding a housing project for those that have illegally entered. But little is being done to stop the flow, the Biden administration launching a hiring initiative for illegal aliens and attempting to slip amnesty for all illegals into legistlation. Chinese Nationals busted over 100 times entering sensitive U.S. sites, Biden's recent gaffs in Vietnam over the Robin Williams movie, over 1600 scientists including Nobel Lauriets criticizing and challenging climate change rhetoric, an Appeals Court ruling the Biden Administration did violate free speech, and much more hit this week's news.

Tech Talk
This week's News of the Cyber World found that the contact-less payment system for New York subways is susceptible to creditcard abuse. And both the Gemini North and South Telescopes used by NOIRLab and smaller telescopes in Cerro Tolodo Chile were shut down by cyber-attacks. Criticism over Tesla's proposed Cybertruck and a bank in the U.K. refusing business over political beliefs also hit this week's cybernews.

Games Development
Development Discussion
If you were curious What's up with the forum's RMers, DerVVulfman has been working upon the windows-like control system, fixing issues he has with his icon-based list system. He returned later stating he fixed most of the issues, and provided a list of commands that can manipulate the list's appearance. Meanwhile, Remi-chan presents early stages of the next game she has planned while waiting for some resources for her current work. With two youtube videos, you can see that flight is highly stressed in the game and uses both keyboard movement and mouse targeting in another bullet-hell system.

Material Development
Scripts Database
Early this week, DerVVulfman created the Aleworks Input Mouse Sprite Add-On, a script that allows one to use a custom sprite cursor for Alework's AIM system. By creating its own sprite, it solves an issue with the mouse cursor vanishing when entering fullscreen mode. However, DerVVulfman returned to the script at the end of the week to deal with a visual issue, removing the sprite's visibility if the mouse cursor is no longer over the game screen.

To fulfull another request, kyonides revisited Falkoner to offer users the ability to use the same key command to activated and deactivate your scouting avian.

Resource Requests
Earlier this week, kyonides was in search of a Balloon Sprite for RPGMaker XP, one that had the same basic dimensions as a traditional RTP sprite. It wasn't long before he reported he was directed to two other sites that contained RPGMaker XP resources; PandaMaru's Website and HungryMouse's Resources.

Creativity Section
Music and Audio
Even more low-fidelity versions of Eric Matyas's Original Music is Shared this week. A revised edition of "The Island of Dr. Sinister", slow and sinister the melody while the wood percussion block taps hectically. And the lo-fi edition of "More Freaky Things This Way Come" may make one thing they're at a Pink Floyd concert gone horribly wrong.

Art and Design
If you need some more wood textures, look no further than the Massive Library of Free Images by Eric Matyas. This week he added two more artistic wood textures, the first being a set of yellowish wood planks that have some vertical scarring while the second being a pale wood crosscut with dark grains and reddish mottling.

Well, that's it for this week.

"Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea." - Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)
