(November 20 to November 26, 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
Announcements and Updates
If you haven't seen much being posted by DerVVulfman apart from forum duties, he released a Notification of the Arduous Work he has been doing, archiving resources from lost sites, working upon a backup forum database, and forum security.

A veteran who has been in the game development community since the days of RPGRevolution, Kaz, has now appeared. While not actively using any game maker, he still enjoys the community experience. He was greeted by DerVVulfman who challenged to determine whom was the elder present, Holder who waved, and Remi-chan who presented to our new member a render of her old Bizarre Monkey avatar for a touch of nostalgia.

General Chat
In world events, the four-day cease fire between Israel and Hamas would be the News of the World, one marked by Hamas violating the pause merely 15 minutes in. Still, the release went forward. But before the cease-fire, the IDF and UN evacuated babies from the Shifa Hospital to Egypt, and then uncovered a rocket factory built underneath a mosque. Iran is stepping up its rhetoric, this while the Jewish U.S. Ambassador's home is vandalized, a synagogue in Armenia set ablaze, and a manhunt is underway Iran backed terrorists sneaking into Britain. The victory of Javier Milei in Argentina had caused an upset in many socialist countries in Latin America. And China threatened Milei not to cut economic ties. But the 53 year old economist plans to do just that and deal with 'civilized' nations and stay away from the communist regime and its allies. Election integrity with voting machines in the U.S. hit the news this week as Pennsylvania machines are glitching, and a Federal Judge found Georgia machines with faulty security measures. Though Ukraine said it was hit by the largest drone strike ever this week, Russian troops under Lt Colonel Zladko made claim they are receiving suicide missions to cover up his blunders. And insofar as resources, the ammunition Russia acquired from North Korea had proven proves fatal as gun barrels and turrets have been damaged or blown. Troops punished by Biden's Vaccine Mandate suing for Billions in lost ages, daycare workers busted for running a Child Fight-Club ring, border security in Germany, the U.S, UK, the vehicle explosion on the Rainbow Bridge, and more hit this week's news.

Tech Talk
This week's News of the Cyber World is bad news for electric vehicles, whether it be Stellantis' recall of Hybrid vehicles after some caught fire, and a CEO from General Motors stepping down after the incident with a RoboTaxi and a pedestrian. Bad news for Google as well, as their anti-trust case heats up with secret deals with Spotify and anti-competition practices with Fortnite arose. North Koreans providing false credentials to steal western jobs, Elon Musk's lawsuit against MediaMatters for manufacturing false content, the CEO of OpenAi returning and more hit this week's cybernews.

Games Development
Development Discussion
Remastering of current works is apparent if you wanted to ask your fellow RMers, What's up? Remi-chan touched up some event code to prevent accidental battle damage from being inflicted during cutscenes and replaced a colorful backdrop within her outerspace adventure. KasperKalamity acquired RPGMaker MV, and as the weather chills, he began revising some of his maps. AVGB-KBGaming just acquire RPGMaker MZ which increased the number of available layers to four, something that surprised KasperKalamity. But not disappointed, he is enjoying some of his new editor's features.

This week, KasperKalamity made An annoucement that his game, Arbor's Eve, is now being designed with RPGMaker VX as its engine. He found that the mapping suited his tasts, though was curious if tutorials or help was available. Remi-chan suggested that the editor is much like the older systems, recommended reading the help file, and noted that she may be found oft in Discord.

Complete Projects
If a science fiction story with a rich collection of characters amidst a backdrop of alien worlds, Rave Heart is almost half-price at Steam. Starmage wished to announce that as of now that a Steam Autumn Sale is ongoing.

Material Development
Scripts Database
The PlayMusik jukebox crafted by kyonides was twice updated, primarily handling visual backdrops. However, RPGMaker XP does lack the built-in wave effect that the other two engines provide.

For those using either RPGMaker VX or VXAce and wishes to add a little phonic pinache, Vehikle SE by kyonides allows you to provide a little audio cue when boarding.

Resources Database
Working to safeguard RPGMaker resources from being lost, DerVVulfman archived D・M's Resources from a Geosites page that vanished in 2019. The website contained resources from RPGMaker 2000/2003 through to RPGMaker VX, the tilesets of a more modern or futuristic nature. Though the RPGMaker VX Characterset collection includes VX converted versions of both RPGMaker XP and 2003 heroes and villains.

Creativity Section
A new thread within our Creativity section, we now have access to Remi-chan's Cinematic Theatre. A separate topic, here Remi-chan can spotlight all her animation works, beginning with her endeavor for 100 subscribers and her self-designed autobiography. It was followed by select cutsccenes from her more recognized games, and ending with a collection of trailers.

Well, that's it for this week.
