A Programmer Is Me!

After reading the first few chapters of JavaScript for Kids and watching a bit of SRDude’s RPG Maker plugin tutorial (and a bit of frustration) I’ve finally created my first plugin! The name is kind of generic (I’ll change it later), but its one and only function is fixing the text box size in RPG Maker MV. I’m quite proud of the result.

I thought I had finally learned enough JavaScript to take on a plugin, but the frustration and run-around I experienced just trying to figure out how to make something this simple has taught me that I still have only scratched the surface of the language. I understand some basic principles, but writing and modifying code is more than just serving up some hot, steaming coppypasta. It’s a true logic puzzle! It’s kind of daunting, but also exciting to see how much I still have to learn to master JS and get the most out of the RPG Maker engine.

Thanks for tuning into this short update. Be sure to come back soon for more news…or to watch me sweat and struggle through all of my trials and tribulations, either one. If you have any comments, tips, or feedback, don’t be shy about leaving a comment below. Have a great evening/day/mind-bending time warp!
