New profile posts

I get the sneaking suspicion that this swan song mod project I'm currently working on is gonna be polarizing. I'm so incredibly excited and driven to be working on this (something I haven't felt since 2017-2018), I genuinely think that what I have here is really special, and to the rare few I've shared it with there's been positive reception (despite still ironing out a lot of details), but there's this nagging feeling that there is going to be a percentage of people that absolutely will not like it at all. This gut feeling I'm making something that—while a lot of people within our community will enjoy and praise (assuming I successfully execute my design doc as I envision)—there's also going to be a good chunk of reasonable people, users here that I respect, that will just utterly not enjoy the story and world that I've been crafting. This project feels like I'm climbing up a waterfall: Everybody says not to do it, many have tried in the past with no success, and yet my hubris is the assumption that I'm going to be able to succeed because of some unique interpretation to the problems involved. An interpretation that nobody expects or wanted, and so it is uncertain if it will be accepted at all.

Perhaps this will be silly in hindsight, but right now I genuinely can not tell if this is just normal creative insecurity or a realistic realization of the nature of what it is that I'm attempting here. It's not a fear that "nobody will like this" or about random ""haters"", but that I'm making something that goes against what people want and expect and so the execution has to be flawless to convince them otherwise. There's a lot on my mind with working on this. (Also sorry about being vague as I always do. As per my usual I don't want to share details until this is far enough along in tangibility. I just needed to write these thoughts down somewhere).

What you're describing sounds totally normal. For any work like this, there will always be people who really like what you put out, and there will always be people who don't really care for it.

This sort of thought process is how a lot of cult classics are born. I'm excited to see where this passion project of yours goes, and it's probably the case that most of those people that may not like it are still likely to appreciate the deliberate thought and effort that you put into it.
This is going to be the last time I make a profile post even remotely related to my problems.

I truly apologize for making these profile posts. I shouldn't have brought any of this upon any of you. It's my suffering, not yours, and it's already probably become clear to all of you that you can't help me.
By making these posts, I have driven you away from me, I have made you uncomfortable, I have made you dislike me, I have annoyed you, and I have made you lose respect for me.
I've kept these feelings in for so long before I started making posts like this, and it has been getting to where I can't keep any of it in anymore, but that doesn't excuse any of it.
I've lately been contemplating seeking a therapist, but to be honest, I don't think even they will be able to help me.

From now on, I am not going to vent about my problems on here, or anywhere, unless it's with someone in private. None of you should have to be dragged down into this hell with me.

Please see that therapist if you haven't already. Please don't fall into that classic trap of "it won't work" or "this is too hard". Just do it.
extremely brief progress update for evergreen: finally finished the graphic for an optional cutscene... and promptly realised that it being the only one of its kind makes it stick out, so i'm thinking of having an optional CG cutscene in each area - 4 in total (beginning area (though maybe that's covered by the intro image?), each 3 teleporter locations), not including the planned joke ending, but we'll see...

i've also been working on cleaning up/implementing sidequests, and generally polishing stuff, but if i give a deadline for this update's release i will 100% miss it so i'll just finish this off with a 'it's still being worked on lol' :p

I was delusional for thinking I was good at composing music.

Oh no I don't think you can't retain your cool around critism.
It's moreso that you also gotta accept that sometimes people will not have positive points and that you should try not to have just one comment kill your confidence.

I'll just say consider the pointers you've been given and see it as a show of interest, best of luck with your music.

NahhaAhhHhhHhhHHahhahhh the dickeatin real bro, the dickeatin real. If this isn't ironic, then you need to cool down the fanaticism, man. Again, who cares, you're taking these questions too seriously, these people just don't know better (like you).

Im sure it gets annoying after almost two decades, but they dont mean it in a bad faith. They love cave story (like you?) and they either just obsessed (like you), they're way too optimistic, or they just young and naive but they definitely will learn soon (i would say like you i just did but im not much older than you (unless you are actually 40 years older than me))

Rest assured, I am not a 40 year old man. I am, in fact, 15.

Also, just wondering, why do you think this is ironic?
Hello. I no longer use this account. Would it be possible for you to delete this account?

Thank you.

You guys are going to have to be waaayyy more specific. This isn't some simple one-size-fits-all operation.

Are you wanting content to be removed?
If you are after content removal then keep in mind that I cannot delete thread-starting posts, but I can edit them. Also I will not do anything about quoted text in other people's posts unless there is something specific that must be edited for privacy concerns (like you putting personal details in the contents of a post). On this note deleting content breaks the flow of conversation in threads, so think carefully about whether you want to do this. Of course given your low post count you can do this yourself if needs be.

Are you just wanting just the security of not having your password or personal details associated with a website you no longer use?
So long as your account is associated with content then I can't delete your account outright. That said I can change the password to something random, replace your email address, remove your avatar/banner, remove/edit your signature/about text, remove any sort of identifying information, and/or even permaban the account. You just need to tell me what you specifically need.

Are you moving to a new account?
I could merge this account's contents into your new account if that is the case.
playing axial disc 1 for the second time and i just found out that i was playing the game wrong which was the reason why i found encounters so annoying. encounter rates are still too high tho

today i learned that axial disc 1 is actually an incredibly easy game. defeated the penultimate boss very easily with a slight amount of strategy. some of the fights are just horribly rng dependent though.
