(May 20 to May 26, 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
While on the hunt for a scripter to solve a problem with the scripter's coder, goblinhoney joined our forum. An artist and game developer, goblinhoney's search could be difficult according to DerVVulfman as there had been a 10 year difference.

General Chat
The News of the World began with the unexpected death of Iran's President in a Helicopter crash. And despite being known as the Butcher of Tehran, members states of Europe sent condolenses while Iranian officials made numerous calls to 'encourage' mourners to attend the funeral. And the week ended with China staging mock missile attacks and bombing runs against Taiwan while their planes carried live ammo, missiles and bombs. The ICC (International Criminal Court) called for the arrest of Israel's President Netanyahu, Israel's former Prime Minister calling for the ICC to be dismantled in response as it ignores evidence that Gaza aid is constantly stolen by Hamas whom still refuses to release the 100+ hostages taken on October 7th. And when footage of Hamas' brutal October 7th attack was shown to counter Pro-Palestine activists in UCLA, Congress's Ilhan Omar attempted to cast the Pro-Palestine activists as victims despite their antisemitic rhetoric as they and illegally barred Jewish students and journalists from entering. For the U.S. Presidential Race, it looks bleak for President Biden whom attended a commencement speech that black voters thought race bating, and continues to fumble public statements. This while third-party candidates found a plot by Democrats to remove them from the ballot. And after the prosecution's star witness admits he stole $60,00 from Trump and the Trump Defense team rested their NY case, Former President Trump held a massive rally in New York's Bronx, a size not seen since the era of Ronald Reagan. But it appears that Trump had been targeted in the past and recent; documents revealing the FBI had clearance to use Deadly Force when raiding Trump's Florida Residence, and vials of blood addressed to Trump now received at the RNC headquarters. Insofar as the war between Russia and Ukraine, a recent bombardment in Kharkiv left over a dozen Ukrainians dead. Meanwhile Intel lawmakers, NATO and Congress's Speaker of the house all urge President Biden to allow strikes against Russia with U.S. made weapons. Immigration hits hard worldwide, a UK think-tank warning that Britain may become fractured fom the massive influx arriving. And in the U.S., Democrats shoot down a law to block child trafficking requiring blood tests of those illegally crossing with children in tow. All this while U.S.'s DHS Mayorkas continues to state laws at the US/Mexico border have been enforced since day one despite the 10 million illegal entries, a Turkish migrant at the southern border admits on video there is no security or law present, and the numerous infiltration attempts at military bases according to a Navy Admiral from U.S. Fleet Forces Command. The W.H.O. (World Health Organization) failed to have a Global Pandemic Treaty signed, those nations objecting over decisions that could be made by health bureaucrats that were neither elected nor accountable. Recall that during the outbreak of Covid, the World Health Organization repeated China's talking points. The Chinese ethnic cleansing of Tibetans, over 1/3rd of Oregon state wishing to secede over the state's liberal policies, Portland fed up with its soft-on-crime policies electing a new D.A., the death of Film Maker Roger Corman, Saudi Arabia wanting U.S. nukes as part of a defense strategy, Moscow launching a satellite weapon into space, climate activists glueing themselves within Munich Airport to protest pollution called by air travel, and much more hit this week's news.

Tech Talk
This week's News of the Cyber World wa looking very bad for Elon Musk, be it issues with Tesla Shareholders or a lawsuit over his car's self-driving capabilities. While Google is seeking to take advantage of Microsoft's recent security issues, they attempt to dodge their anti-trust court case. Microsoft unveils an unsettling AI powered version of Windows, China unveils militarized robots similar to "Boston Dynamics" robot dogs from 2018, OpenAI trains its algorythm with Reddit pages, and much more hit this week's cybernews.

Material Development
It was a very busy week for the development of the HiddenChest RGSS Player Executable, kyonides first correcting issues with the innate Weather class and transitioning values with the Sprite class, and adding more values into the Game.Ini such Debug, Fullscreen and both Width and Height. Later updates made were on the expansion of the Mouse with standard Input class commands as trigger and repeat. And with that, kyonides introduced even double-click as an option, this while working on a script to showcase ease of use with the default menu. And lastly, one can include the path and name of their game's Icon within the Game.Ini, said graphic clearly visible when the game is executing.

Scripts Database
A HiddenChest first, kyonides put together the KSoundFontMenu for the HiddenChest engine. The first rubyscript written specifically for his engine, it lets you select the midi synthesizer's sound font for your midi playback.

If you wish to let your players change the appearance of their game's menu and message system, DerVVulfman released the Windowskin Selection Menu for RPGMaker. It is a custom menu addition that lets the player choose which windowskin they wish to use, their choice easily recorded within the saved games.

A couple months after its release, Melana found a couple issues with the RPGMaker XP port DerVVulfman release of Fomar0153's Copy Events script. Both issue were related to the IDs of the events, the first was related to the ID of the last normal event on the map and the second related to internal ID values in the duplicated events.

Well, that's it for this week.
