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

Feedback and Suggestions
After joining the forum, d_a_renoir wondered How to edit his profile. When he attempted, he found that the system said his account wasn't yet fully activated. But when DerVVulfman saw the query, he saw that d_a_renoir succeeded, adding that the delay in granting full permissions was to throw off spambots who would use resources to spam the forum and message systems.


Occasions
After many years of visits, d_a_renoir joined the forum. He initially thought he had one but was mistaken. Greeted he was by DerVVulfman and kyonides who wondered what games he was working on or which kind attracted his attention.

Joining us by way of Reddit this week is DilawZ08, looking for help with RPGMaker XP. DerVVulfman inquired as to what skills DilawZ08 had while kyonides inquired about his game development history.

We've seen a number of birthdays come and go this week. It started off when Caebrillia, bswi13 and Nagromm shared the same birthday. Later, Xenon3193 and ZeroCookie enjoyed a shared birthday cake. But while cake is the thing, some people think pie is fly, it stands to reason a pie was singularly devoured by Kahn01. After that, inominavel07 snagged a cake to enjoy by himself. This was followed by Flying Rock, Lord Vectra and Pochito48 dining on their own candle-covered confectionary. After that, cakes were ablaze with the candles to celebrate the birthdays of ZeroSum, Flamewish, VOING and GalacticGod. And this Sunday, we had a birthday celebration as robbertt had a cake to for his special day.


General Chat
With the new strain of Covid-19 appearing, it would be fairly understanable that the current vaccines would hit the News of the World. Unfortunate though, dangers from both the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have appeared. However, there was a bright-side on the medical front as the cause of Alzheimer’s by way of tau proteins may have been discovered. What was also discovered, after U.S. Representative Adam Schiff posted damning texts between Rep Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, was that Schiff himself severely doctored and fabricated the text he released. And following 30 tornadoes hitting the mid-west of the United States, President Biden approved Kentucky Governor Beshear's request for major disaster relief.

A funny thing happened to Father Christmas as he was leaving Kazakhstan, this found by DerVVulfman if you asked him What are YouTubing?


Tech Talk
As Kain Nobel sets up his new PC, he ran into Problem With Ruby IRB, developing errors he forgot how to backtrace. It was kyonides that appeared not long after with a solution for a grateful Kain Nobel.



Material Development
Event Systems Database
Perhaps evolving to its own game, Mike_Everley starting working on an event system demo entitled Rogue Crew (Sci Fi) for Ace. Currently a 30-40 minute Sci-Fi game, you command a starship on a dangerous renegade mission. Take care of your ship, be wary of hull breaches and try to fulfull the mission objectives.


Resources Database
If you are in search of background textures or graphics for one's tilesets, Eric Matyas is continuing to Build a Massive Library of Free Images for Everyone. And this week, he made a large variety of tileable works, whether it be brick or concrete, rock or wood, or metal amongst others.



Creativity Section
Music and Audio
Ah, with the holiday seasons upon us, Eric Matyas continues to Share His Original Music, now composing two wintery tracks for anyone's projects, the first being Magic Snowfall and the second entitled Arctic Puzzler.


Literature Section
A poignant letter may now be found within Kyonides and His One Shots, a lament of sorts. And you may come across the letter author's ilk without even a single thought.



Well, that's it for this week.
