(May 25 to June 2, 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
There was plenty of News of the World, Former President Trump found Guilty in the New York's criminal case with many Americans calling foul and the GOP Donations Website temporarily overwhelmed. The war against Hamas continues as Israeli forces raid the city of Rafah and began destroying underground tunnels used by the terror group. There were many Palestinian losses during an attack that killed Senior Hamas commanders in the city. Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers also lost their lives when encountering boobytraps in tunnels under a school run by the UNRWA itself. Also during this week, tempers flared as Congresswoman Tlaib attended an Anti-Israel conference that had direct connections to U.S. declared terror organizations. And of terrorists, Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei praised pro-Hamas College Students, his narrative completely distorting historical events and reversing roles betwen victims and abusers. And China, whom has repeatedly sent their military threateningly close to Taiwan airspace, now lends its support to the Pro-Hamas branch of the United Nations, the same UNRWA. But despite such revelations, the U.N. casts blame nations drifing away from globalist ideologies for their lack of influence. A sex trafficking ring linked to Venezuela's largest criminal cartel, North Korea against China's call for De-nuclearization, Eastern Europe NATO nations prepared against Russian attacks, the murder of ‘General Hospital’ Actor Johnny Wactor in Los Angeles, and more hit this week's news.

Games Development
Development Discussion
Earlier this week, difficulties with gaming projects were What's up with RMers? Early this week, Steel Beast 6Beets had a power loss which was the likely culprit that corrupted his project while he was working. It was fortunate that he had a backup of his work. But when DerVVulfman uploaded a project that combined two scripts that he Steel Beast 6Beets said were not working together, confusion appeared. And with that, Remi-chan showed up to announce she completed all of her menu system's content apart from character dossiers, well over 400 pages of material. And to celebrate it and the receipt of more character portraits from her artist, she posted some more youtube videos from her game. But in response to Remi-chan's quip over using scripts for custom menus, DerVVulfman made comment regarding game volume.

Complete Projects
New art and a new status screen is available for Rave Heart. A small patch is now available for the game by Starmage, the latest version now available at both Steam and Itch.

Material Development
Almost every day this week, the HiddenChest RGSS Player Executable had made serious advances. First, kyonides updated the built-in splash screen system while improving his INI parser. He added native Zlib functions right after, and then more updates to Mouse input system including wheel support. After that, he added the resizable/fixed size game window feature for those that may want to permit their games windows to be flexible. And after that, he migrated both the game icon and game title values from Game.Ini so they may be called and set in-game.

Scripts Database
For those using the HiddenChest engine, ClickableWindows by kyonides permits one to use the mouse to interact with menus created with the default menus from RPGMaker XP and VXAce. Then towards the end of the week, he adapted it to work with the default menus for RPGMaker VX users.

If you wish for a change of pace when using HiddenChest, the PrintScene HC script by kyonides allows one to emulate the system's innate pop-up window, replete with its own red 'close' box and OK button.

The KSoundFontMenu by kyonides needed some updating. And after releasing the recent Linux and Windows editions of HiddenChest, gave him the excuse to do so, now allowing for methods that can access the Game contents more readily.

Well, that's it for this week.
