(October 4 to October 10, 2021)

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
Glad tidings always occur each week, and among those are the birthdays of our members, such as zyeard's and Keeroh!'s this Tuesday.  After that, kreuzraven enjoyed a slice of cake, followed by the birthdays belonging to Iqus and Tei.  But that was only the start of the birthday celebrations this week as MikeCirka's, Thejuster's and Suave88's  the very next day.  And this Sunday, we had a birthday celebration as amp, superegp, darrell2150beta and zowiez enjoyed their slices of cake.

  General Chat
Kicking back and watching some old anime was on your mind of kyonides along with machine empires and DerVVulfman's recent hospital trip's bloodletting. Meanwhile, DerVVulfman had finally returned to work after recovering from Covid, though he stated that his condition in the morning was less than stable. But on the plus side, he stated that he can now taste food, a typically months-long side effect of Covid having now disappeared.

  Tech Talk
Issues with major platforms were the News of the Cyber World.  First, those who love streaming might beware that Twitch source code was stolen, But worse than that, a 125GB torrent of the code, security tools and three years of creator payments were found at a 4chan message board. And after that, Facebook and all its subsidiaries suffered a six-hour long outage this past Monday. In a statement, the company blamed the issue upon networking issues and configuration changes which caused a cascading effect.  Following this, DerVVulfman mentioned that the Big-Tech platform suffered another hours-long downtime on Friday, again claiming configuration changes as the issue.

  Forum Games & Nonsense
Another week and another comic Dungeons and Dragons story has appeared, this time being DMS HATE BARBARIANS by Doujima.  DerVVulfman's post recount's Doujima tale as he played an Orc that kept giving his Dungeon Master grief.

Games Development
  Complete Projects
Habs11 was a bit surprised when kingray100 told him about a graphic glitch where a transparent shade wouldn't vanish within his game, The Spirit of Darkness.  For that, Habs11 asked for a screenshot so he can see what is occurring.

Material Development
  Scripts Database
If you wanted your game to let the player find items and later need to determine exactly what they are, KAppraise for RPGMaker XP and VX may be for you.  This system by kyonides comes with a custom menu.

Just recently, kyonides updated both the RPGMaker XP and VX versions of Gem Roulette and altered his postings for cleanliness.

  Resources Database
Some time has passed, but DerVVulfman returned to the HALF KAISER BATTLER PROJECT with ladies's fashions. Inspired by Holder, a knee-length dress had appeared.  This was accompanied by a edit that DerVVulfman made for a strapless dress.  And the next day, a simple knee-length skirt had followed.

Creativity Section
  Music and Audio
While it has been a hectic week for Eric Matyas, he still continued to Sharing his Original Music and Sound FX, this week producing a piece entitled "Electric Ocean Sunset".  This work, a synth piece found within one of his Sci-Fi pages, may even remind one of Vangelis' classic scores.

Well, that's it for this week.
