Steam Deck Once Again

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2022 by getbent57

Have been watching some more videos about the Steam Deck.  Wanted to see how well it worked with emulation and was very happy to see it works awesome.  Even with PS2 games.  So thinking I will save up and get one.  There are three version to choose from.  Am looking at the middle one.  The only down side is.  Think it will be some time in 2023 before I will be able to buy one.  As I am typing his (March 22, 2022).  You can log in and reserve one.  Then “Expected order availability: After Q3 2022”.   That is why I might have to wait to next March to get one.

As I am typing this (February 10, 2022) a few videos on the Steam Deck have popped up a YouTube.  At that point the people were no allowed to show or talk about the software.  Only about the hardware.  One cool thing discovered is that the games running off the SD Card load just about as fast as the internal SSD.  Think that is great news.  Am looking forward to see what people can get running on this device.  If can do what I want, like good PS2 emulation.  Might look into getting on some time in the summer (if there available).

Steam_DeckThought I made a post back in the Summer (2021) talking about Steam Deck but I did not.  If you don’t know what it is, is a handheld gaming PC being put out by Valve.  It does look pretty cool and am interesting.  However wasn’t and not going to jump on board just yet.  Want to see some real world video with people talking about it.  Saying this now because the first bunch should be shipping in February (2022).  Will be keeping my eye YouTube.  If it turns out to be good might add it to my buy list.

Streets Of Fury EX

Streets_Of_Fury_EXPlayed a very silly but interesting game other night.  It is called Streets Of Fury EX.  It plays like you standard side scrolling beat-em up.  What makes it standout is they used real people in it.  Something like what they did with the first Mortal Kombat game.  They scanned themselves doing different moves.  The funny thing is the moves are pretty lame and or silly.  That being said we all got a good laugh out of it.

RPG Maker MV

RPG_Maker_MVHave not looked at RPG Maker VX Ace in a very long time now.  Well have just learned that this weekend the newest version of the RPG Maker programs, RPG Maker MV, is free this weekend on Steam.  March 16th to the 19th (2018).  Thinking about give it a download and try.  If you like it they have it on sale as well.  This version has some pretty nice features.  Like being able to put your games for phones/tables as well for HTML 5.  You can check it out for yourself > here.

Game Character Hub

Game_Character_Hub.pngBack in November (2014) talked about the program Game Character Hub.  This program let you easily make and edit sprites so you can put into a game.  It works in hand with the RPG Maker products.  Have been eyeballing it ever since then.  The only place you can buy it is Steam > here.  The asking price is $17.00.  However a few days back it was on sale for less then $6.00.  So decided to buy it.

The program works great.  You can start off going though tutorials how it works.  When though the first one. Which is pretty straight forward.  Works much like an photo editing program.  Made a quick character.  Then imported into RPG Maker VX Ace.  Was very impressed.  If you are the art type you can make not only characters but all so all the titles used in the RPG Maker programs.

RPG Maker VX Ace

RPGMakerVXAce.pngNear the end of last December (2014) had the the New Years goal of making a small game with RPG Maker VX Ace.  Well I have failed with that goal.  Have not touched the program in months.  It is not that big of of a deal.  Because I have spent my free time playing lots of great games.  With that being said.  Still plan to make one.   Many be by this time next year or sooner I will have one for people to try.  It is a very fun program to use.

There is a new version out now called RPG Maker MV.  This new version is pretty nice.  Have not tried since my computer will not run it.  It is bigger and better.  The biggest thing is it can run a lots of platforms.  The games you make can run on Windows, Mac, android, iOS and even HTML 5.  When even I upgrade to a new computer will look at getting a copy of this.

Game_Character_HubIt has been awhile since I bought RPG Maker VX Ace.   Still haven’t got into it much.  But still plan to make a game with it.  Just need to find so more time.  While looking up different help and tutorials.  Found a link on to a program called Game Character Hub.  There is a retail version up on Steam.  Which you can check out > here.  They are asking $17.00.  How ever you can still (I think) download the beta version > here.  Have not tried it yet but it looks interesting.  The program let you easy make and edit sprites so you can put into a game.  I am no way an artiest so this will come in handy when its time to make characters for my game.  You can watch a video > here or below that explains how the program works.

RPGMakerVXAce.pngGot around to trying out RPG Maker VX Ace this past weekend.  Have played around with RPG Maker XP.  Which they are both kind of the same VX Ace is much more streamed lined.  My goal is still to make a game but first need to learn how to use this program.  Found a great tutorial > here.  You can read it right on the website.  There is a download button but you have to sign up at the site.  How ever the user has posted a link to were you can download a PDF and a copy of the game you will make using the tutorial.   Have gone though the first 30 pages or so.  It is very helpful.  All so found another useful site  There are lot of tutorials there as well along with lots of other stuff.

RPG Maker VX Ace

RPGMakerVXAceBack in August had a post taking about how I was using the trail version of RPG Maker XP to make a game.  The time is up that trail.  Was debating weather or not to buy it.  They are about $25.00.  The newest and better version RPG Maker VX Ace is going for $70.00.  Have good news this past weekend over at the Humble Bundle Store they had VX Ace on sale for $17.49 US.  Could not let this deal pass me by.  It was on sale for $17.49 US, so I bought.  In the end it only cost me $20.27 Cn.  Which is a very good deal.   It was a very easy process.  Signed up for an account at Humble Bundle.  Paid for the program with Pay Pal. Which only took second to process.  The thing was they sent me a link to program to work with Steam.  So had to sign up for that as well, then link Steam to Humble Bundle.  Then use the Steam to download it. Now that I have it I will have unlimited time to make a game.
