1   Shining Force and AI
So since I'm using it everywhere else in life, thought I'd spend a quick 10 minutes using AI on shining force related things.

Midjourney (5.2 at this post)
Examples: Character art, items, wooden floor tiles

I'm sure you could do a lot more, a lot better and match the older style if you wanted to, see:

ChatGPT (3.5)
of course you use it to help code I suppose, but I don't think it fits that purpose particularly well if you're trying to actually craft a finished product.  However it's great for all that random dialogue, and helping to spur you into driving the adventurer with local hooks.

The fact I missed my own designated day means I cannot blame anyone else!
Maybe it needs to be further in the future and with some merit.
Feel free to contact me, my username at gmail dot com.

I'm still in NZ!

Miss you all.
We should have some kind of weird forum party day.

I designate 21-09-21.

On that day, regardless of time zone, ye olde blah should shine with force once more!

Progress is progress is progress!

10   Re: Game updates thread
Excellent, that is a really handy feature Smiley

11   Re: Bung Ole Ole Never Ending Thread - Vintage Classics Edition -

The Banner Saga, by the way, just getting it to try out, one of their influences is shining force.

Also finished Divinity Original Sin, pretty amazing turn based strategy in its own right, just not as much party goodness as I want.

12   Re: I <3 my shining force :D
Indeed welcome Smiley

13   Re: Game updates thread
Hey Devlyn, that sprite editor sounds great Smiley
Can you release that separately as well for us?

14   Re: Alpha version of Shiny Sword: The Dark Dimension

is egress going to be a consideration?
that would probably be my most desired spell at this point.

15   Re: Alpha version of Shiny Sword: The Dark Dimension
Oh yeah absolutely, I love it.
Still trying to work out how to win haha Cheesy

The shop seems pretty robust except for that one point, it just needs that statement for getting the partycount to be outside the doonce check I believe.
