UPDATE 3/5/2021!

#436 Post by SweetChiel » Mon May 03, 2021 4:31 am

​Hi, guys! What's up?
I'm a little busy today so I'll make it short~

Image

- Programmed in 25 pages last week!​​ We're doing great! \(^.^)/
Things might slow down next week though, there's this... opening fight? Intermission fight? I don't know what's the word is, but there's going to be one fight before the final battle--all of them branching according to your respective routes :'3

I'm going to be busy but it's going to be fun as well x'D

- Fixed some hiccups! I missed a few capital word, spaces--this is important because some of Kahlil's and Arya's expressions suddenly went blank and I was like, ???? 😂

- Started looking for CG references! The Spring Arc have a lot of CGs--including the happy and sad endings so yeah, lots to prepare :'3

Welp, I gotta go now!
Wherever you are I hope you guys had a great week! Don't forget to take care of yourself though and put on some sunscreen, the weather is getting really hot x_x
xoxo,

SweetChiel

UPDATE 10/5/2021!

#437 Post by SweetChiel » Mon May 10, 2021 4:27 am

​Morning, guys! How did your week go?
I... got into quite a bind last week ^^;;

Remember when I said I was busy? Well, there's a problem with my wedding dress and it got canceled in the end OTL
I had to run with my mom, looking for a new one + make up artist + shoes.
So you can imagine how hectic it was--fortunately, we managed to find a new one and my mother-in-law had taken care of the make up artist for me! *happy dance* The wedding shoes ended up being custom made, but oh boy, it feels so good when I finally solve all those problems!
I still have to find a pair of red shoes to go with my Sangjit ​dress, but eh, it's a problem for another day~
Anyways, I managed to do some programming for Bermuda despite the hurdles thrown at me <3

Image

- 23 Pages programmed in! ​Honestly, I only managed to fulfill my quota because a polishing is involved OuO;
A scene got moved forward because I thought it would have better impact that way.

​- Fixed a plot hole and polished the branching paragraph/events~
It's not much, but I'm determined to program the first fighting scene this week! *rolls up my sleeves*
It'll involve simple animations and moving sprites--the testing will take more time than the programming itself but that's the fun part so I'll do my best! >:D
Cheers for another productive week! Take care, everyone! And stay hydrated!
xoxo,
SweetChiel <3
----------------------~(OuO)~-----------------------

Q&A session part 37! Since no one submitted a question, I'll have fun today! If you have any questions for the bachelors, don't hesitate and type away ^.^

1. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
Arya: "I can be both. Depends on the client."

Kahlil: "Night owl for sure!"

Guntur: "Early bird gets the worm."

Kahlil: "Not if the owl eat it first!"

Guntur: "...Says the one who wakes up at midday."

​Guntur: "I really worry about you sometimes. You eat too much sugar and sleep late."

​Kahlil: "Eh, I'll be fine~"

*Guntur beseechingly looks at Arya*

​Guntur: "Want to become roommates with us? Kahlil only listen to you."

Arya: *looks away* "Good luck."

2. Who is more likely to lose their keys/wallet?
Kahlil: "Guntur. He often lose the key to our apartment so I'm taking care of it."

Guntur: "It's only one time!"

Kahlil: "Really? How about your wallet? Where did you put it?"

Guntur: "It's in my pocket of cou--"

Guntur: "......"

Kahlil: "...You gave it to me for safekeeping when you went to the toilet, remember?" *pulls out Guntur's wallet and gave it back to him*

Arya: *snorts* "That's why I use chains. I never lose them."

UPDATE 17/5/2021!

#438 Post by SweetChiel » Mon May 17, 2021 2:52 am

Hi guys! What's up?
I got another rough week QuQ

First, my laptop's battery died on me. Then not a week after I bought a new one, this another 'service recommended' notice popped up. Fortunately, I still have the warranty so I just need to go to the computer store later... I suspect they're selling me second goods. I need to look for a new store.

While I'm at it, I'll also replace my laptop's keyboard. The brackets suddenly stopped responding, along with the 'up' and 'down' arrows.

Also, is it normal for a macbook charger to become very hot during use? I can't even pull it off without wincing.
I googled it and some article said the adapter might be broken? In any case, I'll also bring it with me later to check--can the weather affect it? I mean, the weather has been really hot these days. My electric fan didn't even help much, it's literally spitting hot air x_x

In any case, here's last week's progress!

Image

- 17 pages programmed in! I know, not so much compared to other weeks Q_Q
The battery died when I did some programming and of course, I haven't saved OTL in the end, I only managed to program the beginning of the first battle (including the branches).

- Fixed the antagonist's fighting sprite. I noticed that his sword is a bit too long ><

- The usual polishing and editing~

I didn't reach the weekly quota of 20 pages so as compensation, I'll post the background where the final battle will take place for my patrons on Patreon today and post it for public next week! -^.^)/

Welp, that's it for now and see you next week!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

P.S. Honestly though, I can't say this enough--it's really sunny and hot these days! Is it the same for you guys? Or is it just my country, Indonesia? I feel like I might melt soon x-x

----------------------~(OuO)~-----------------------

Q&A session part 38! If you have any questions for the bachelors, don't hesitate and type away ^.^

1. "How is each of the trio's morning routine like?" --by: PangHerHeart

*Because Kahlil and Guntur shares and apartment, their morning routine will be combined~*

Kahlil & Guntur:

Kahlil: "...Zzz..."

Guntur: *knocks the top bunkbed* "Wake up, sleepyhead! We gotta go early today!"

Kahlil: "...ZzzzzZzzz..."

Guntur: "RISE AND SHINE!"

Kahlil: "...! Grk--I'm up! I'm up!"

Guntur: "Brush your teeth and get a shower! C'mon! Up! Up!"

Kahlil: "Sheesh..." *yawns, sits up from the bed... and...*

Kahlil: "..............Zzz..."

Guntur: "KAHLIL!"

Kahlil: "Wha--I said, I'm up!" *hastily & embarrassingly climbs down the bed before locking the bathroom*

*30 minutes later...*

Guntur: "Breakfast is ready! Where's that kid?"

Guntur: "Oh well, I'll just go to the bathroom for a sec... hmm?"

*the bathroom is locked so Guntur begins to knock*

Guntur: "Kahlil? Are you in there?"

...............

Guntur: "Kahlil? I need to use the bathroom!"

..............................ZzZzzzZzz....

Guntur: "GODDAMMIT KAHLIL!!!"

Arya:

...........beep... beep...! Click.

Arya: "......." *wakes up exactly at two rings and immediately washes his face*

*The room's silence is broken once more with the sound of water running, but other than that, the room is silent. Almost eerily so. Arya lives behind a church. It hasn't been opened ever since the last incident*

*After washing his face, brushes his teeth, and taking a bath, Arya takes a seat in front of his working table as usual*

Arya: "......"

*As he waits for his laptop to load, he looks to the side where a single picture frame stands*
*The picture contains a man with two boys. One is Arya, the other one had his face cut out*

Arya: "...Morning, Father."

UPDATE 24/5/2021!

#439 Post by SweetChiel » Mon May 24, 2021 10:55 am

Hi guys! I'm really sorry for the late update!
I just got back from another red shoe hunting session QuQ
I still haven't found the right one though... should I order another custom one like I did for the wedding shoes? They're expensive though OTL

Other than that, I've traded my laptop's charger with a new one and turns out that the 'Service Recommended' notification is not because of the battery, but because something is wrong with the Mac OS x_x the clerk said I have to re-install it, but I was like 'meh'. I mean, the OS works fine except the Safari browser that sometimes freeze now and then. I have other priorities and don't have the time to wait for them to reinstall it so yeah, I'll do it later~

On the other hand, Bermuda's programming is going great!

Image

- 22 pages programmed in! I also struck gold with the polishing this time! The conversation is getting better than expected--at least I think so OuO; The climax is still far away though so let's keep working hard!

- Programmed in more expressions for the antagonist and important side characters!

- Minor polishing of Chapter 5 and 4!

I'm quite satisfied with last week's progress ~
I hope you guys also had a productive week! Let's continue the good work, shall we? OuO

However... here's a shout out to Sesame Seed who is having a hard time:
Hey, are you okay now? I hope things are going well on your side! I can't be there for you, but tell me if you still need an ear! We can chat via facebook/discord--we'll work things out!

*cough*

That aside, here's the promised sneak peek from last week!

Image

"The throne, a place where one with supreme power resides.
In a lot of case, they got so high on their pedestal that they cannot see nor hear what is below them.

For they do not realize, when they're stripped of their status, wealth, and power... the throne is merely a chair."


...And that's it for today's update!
Once again, I apologize for being late m(_ _)m *bows*
Take care, guys! Don't skip your meals and rest plenty!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

Q&A session part 39!
If you have any questions for the bachelors, don't hesitate and type away ^.^

1. How would they deal with a shy person who’s a little bit closed off? --- by: Mylane

Hmm, this one is a tricky question, but here we go!
Setting: Library

Kahlil:

Kahlil: "Hi there! Is this seat taken?"

Shy person: *doesn't answer and scoots away. Kahlil takes it as a yes*

Kahlil: *reads for fifteen minutes* *bored* *opens a bag of candy*

Kahlil: "Want one?"

*before the person can answer, Kahlil already scooped a handful and put them on the table*

Kahlil: "Did you come here alone? Name's Kahlil btw!"

*Kahlil continues to talk about trivial things but when the person didn't answer/looks uncomfortable, he stops and sheepishly grins before saying 'sorry'"

*Both of them return to reading their respective books*

*In this case, Kahlil will not talk again unless the other person initiate it*

--------------------------------------------

Guntur:

*Guntur walks into the library. His each step creates a creaking sound and just when he found an empty spot, he pulled the seat only to make a loud screeching sound*

*SCREEECH*

Librarian: "Shhhhh!"

Guntur: "Sorry."

Shy person: "..." *looks at Guntur before quickly looks away. They seem scared/intimidated by Guntur's appearance*

Guntur: "Excuse me, do you know a book called 'The Little Prince'? I want to borrow it in my friend's place."

Shy person: "......" *a little surprised but helps to look for it anyway because they're afraid Guntur will beat them up if they refuse*

Guntur: "Yep, this is it! Thanks!"

Librarian: "Shhhhh!!!"

Guntur: "...Sorry."

Guntur: "Anyways, I really appreciate this. Can I treat you to something? I'm a mean cook."

Shy person: *furiously shakes their head*

Guntur: "No? Then... here's my number. If you get into any trouble, just call me."

*Guntur shoves the paper with his phone number to the shy person's arms before walking away*


--------------------------------------

Arya:

Arya: "..."

*Arya takes a seat without asking whether it's taken or not. Then proceeds to boot up his laptop*

Shy person: "......" *takes a peek before looking away, minding their own business*

*the sound of keyboard clacking continues*

Arya: "........."

Shy person: "..............."

*Time flies and before they know it, they've spent the whole afternoon just sitting side by side!*

UPDATE 31/5/2021!

#440 Post by SweetChiel » Sun May 30, 2021 10:15 pm

​Morning, guys! What's up?
I hope you had a great week~

I'm going to be busy all day today so I'll make this short ><;

Image

​- 20 pages are programmed in! ​I can't wait to start programming the big final battle! Just a little bit more!
Still, I need to make some revisions to the first battle (I'm not satisfied with how the script ends, so I gotta think of something else).
- Made 4 secondary CGs, along with their variations to 'spice it up'~
- Polished the magic circles! I can't believe how much time I invested on this QuQ
Here's a sneak peek of Before and After:

Image

2 of the secondary CGs + the final battle will involve these magic circles so I just have to polish them!

Welp, I gotta go now!
If you have any questions/feedbacks, write them down in the comment section and I'll get back to you ASAP!
Take care, thanks for reading, and I'll see you later, guys!
xoxo,
SweetChiel

UPDATE 7/6/2021!

#441 Post by SweetChiel » Mon Jun 07, 2021 3:08 am

Hi, guys! How did your week go?
Mine was very busy--it's probably one of the busiest and tiring week I had ^^;
But the good news is that I finally found the red shoes I needed for Sangjit! The heel is not too high nor too short, the style is elegant, not too mainstream, it's on sale, the size is a little tight and my right foot curves a little to the outside (due to genetic), but other than that, it's perfect and thank God for that!

Other than that, my fiance and I encountered some problem, which we're still trying to find the solution. We are also going to the PreWedding photoshoot soon, so things will only get busier from now on~
That aside, Bermuda is doing well! I got a breakthrough with some important scenes before the final battle! O///OI can't tell you the details, but let's just say the conversation between the antagonist, the prontagonist, and the important side characters have reached a new height! *happydance
It doesn't look good on the programming progress though x-x

Image

- 13 pages are programmed in! I... I ended up spending most of my time polishing the antagonist's conversation right before the start of the final battle OTL
I'm sad to inform you that I didn't get to fulfill the weekly 20 pages quota Q^Q I'm really satisfied with how it turned out though! The simple animations are in the right places, the sprites are not on top of each other, the new magic circles looks good, and I checked every expression (especially the antagonist's) :'3

- Created a new important item icon with 4 variations. This item will be often seen in the antagonist's secret route.

- Fixed a branching that I missed (I'm sorry, Kahlil!)

Give me a chance to redeem myself~ Above, you can listen to one of the BGMs I'll be using for the final battle~ (Volume Warning!)
https://soundcloud.com/sinakhai/sinakha ... at-awakens

Along with Alcaknight, Sinakhai also have a talent for making epic original BGMs ^///^ I feel so lucky to have found them on soundcloud and I managed to get in contact with them too!

Welp, I guess that's it for today! June and July are going to be very busy months, but I'll do my best to keep writing updates! >:)
Cheers and make sure you guys take care of yourself!
Remember, don't skip your meals and rest plenty!
xoxo,

SweetChiel
----------------------~(OuO)~-----------------------
Q&A session part 39! If you have any questions for the bachelors, don't hesitate and type away ^.^

1. What are the boys' MBTI personality?--- by: PangHerHeart & someone I forgot the name... I'm sorry! Q_Q

The results are from 16personalities.com and they're quite wordy, but I assure you it's worth it!

Kahlil: Campaigner/ENFP-T (Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Prospecting, Turbulent)
"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive."

The Campaigner personality is a true free spirit. They are often the life of the party, but unlike types in the Explorer Role group, Campaigners are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others. Charming, independent, energetic and compassionate, the 7% of the population that they comprise can certainly be felt in any crowd.

As far as I can tell, this is true for Kahlil OuO)b
He is a free spirit! He craves for freedom and creativity!
----------------------------------------------------------
Guntur: Defender/ISFJ-T (Introverted, Observant, Feeling, Judging, Turbulent)
"Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others."

Though sensitive, Defenders have excellent analytical abilities; though reserved, they have well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though they are generally a conservative type, Defenders are often receptive to change and new ideas.

Defenders are true altruists, meeting kindness with kindness-in-excess and engaging the work and people they believe in with enthusiasm and generosity.

This is so true! My, this website's accuracy is starting to scare me O_O;
----------------------------------------------------------
Arya: Logistician/ISTJ-A (Introverted, Observant, Thinking, Judging, Assertive)
"My observation is that whenever one person is found adequate to the discharge of a duty... it is worse executed by two persons, and scarcely done at all if three or more are employed therein."

People with the Logistician personality type enjoy taking responsibility for their actions, and take pride in the work they do – when working towards a goal, Logisticians hold back none of their time and energy completing each relevant task with accuracy and patience.

Logisticians don’t make many assumptions, preferring instead to analyze their surroundings, check their facts and arrive at practical courses of action. Logistician personalities are no-nonsense, and when they’ve made a decision, they will relay the facts necessary to achieve their goal, expecting others to grasp the situation immediately and take action.

Logisticians have little tolerance for indecisiveness, but lose patience even more quickly if their chosen course is challenged with impractical theories, especially if they ignore key details – if challenges becomes time-consuming debates, Logisticians can become noticeably angry as deadlines tick nearer.

LMAO, hands down! This website is so accurate! x'D
While Guntur is 61% introverted, Arya is a whooping 90% introverted! And the description is spot on!

I'd like to thank PangHerHeart for recommending this website to me--frankly, I was skeptical at first but I'm sure glad I gave this website a chance! The description is really good, entertaining, and will definitely helps you understand more about a person's character ^.^
I hope you guys enjoyed today's Q&A session as much as I do!
