(May 13 to May 19, 2024))

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 focused upon China and trade, with the CCP scoffing U.S. President Biden's proposed tariffs and analysis they would skirt such fees by using Mexico as a middleman. But as Mexico became the U.S's largest source of imports, it too may find tariffs looming. The report given to the U.S. Congress that slave labour in China would be near impossible to track may have been in error as new findings show 75 hour slave labour weeks, this a follow-up to a similar study filed three years earlier. And insofar as Latin America, Brazil appears to be offering China access to the Amazon Rain forests much to the fright of global environmentalists. And the largest drug cartel, originating in Brazil, had now gained a foothold in Sydney, Australia. Under the implementation of President Javier Milei, Argentina's inflation rate had now dropped to 8.8%, the first time since replacing Alberto Fernández. Meanwhile, it was revealed that leaders of Left-leaning piqueteros (“picketers”) that began threatening and extorting citizens to protest against President Milei on their behalf, well over 13,000 complaints against the piqueteros have been made. India daring U.S. sanctions after striking a deal with Iran, fact-checking President Biden's claims, the brawl in Taiwan's Parliament, Colorado tax dollars to fund illigal immigration, yet "another" barge collision with a bridge, and more hit this week's news.

Games Development
Development Discussion
Script and codework certainly took prescedent this week if you wondered What's up among the forums RMers, DerVVulfman posting a script showing analysis of RPGMaker XP's actual map code, Later, Steel Beast returned after performing tests recommended by DerVVulfman and kyonides, eventually finding that the problem with kyonides's KEquipSkills was caused by a menu script by Blizzard, the news that it was a script by Blizzard making the wolf administrator headdesk. Meanwhile, kyonides replied that he had replaced some code within his HiddenChest Executable system which would allow simultaneous cross-platform development between Linux and Windows versions.

Upcoming Projects
Starmage has a reason to be happy. Stellar Bewitching now has its own TV Tropes page. Feel free to enjoy the descriptive prose relaying the issues a young girl whom now has to find a young man to play the part of her long-distance before her friends find out that he was totally made up.

Material Development
There is quite a bit of development occuring with kyonides' HiddenChest RGSS Player Executable, returning the parsing of the Game.Ini back to innate Ruby rather than C++ and converted his Game.INI Data Extractor for such work, the initial work becoming available for Ubuntu Linux and Windows, the first time for Windows users in two years. Not long after, kyonides updated the Executables so they can read the RTP paths from the same Game.Ini, this an upgrade from Ancurio's MKXP project which the paths in a separate file. And lastly, kyonides unveiled even newer Executables for both Ubuntu and Windows, fixing issues with his ini parser, and adding the path to the default soundfont to the Game.Ini itself. There was concern that saving the game with the editor would rewrite the Game.ini file, thus erasing the soundfont contents, but DerVVulfman took a look and had no issues. DerVVulfman also relayed that the test project he ran did not rely upon the HiddenChest.Conf file, most content being default and some of the more recent commands within HiddenChest make some options in the .Conf file unnecessary. After some reports made, kyonides performed a couple more bug fixes, repairing typos within the Weather class and taking care of issues related to Picture sprites while adding more functionality within the Game.lni. But it is unfortunate for schM0ggi that HiddenChest only has an Ubuntu Linux edition and not Fedora, this because naming conventions differ between the two.

Script Requests
Early this week, parawixlia asked for help with her RPGMaker XP game. She needed information upn how one would Remove the attack, defend and escape options, this requiring alterations to the actor's battle command window and disabling the Fight/Escape window that appears at the start of each turn. DerVVulfman took a look at her inquiry and chose to write a script for her. While she had an issue copying the script as it was posted, there was no problem after DerVVulfman uploaded the demo.

Well, that's it for this week.
