This is just a quick note on current development: I'm massively behind where I hoped to be at this stage, and it doesn't look likely that RPGMaker Trans V5 will be this month.
The reasons? Threefold. First off, my actual job has been pretty hectic recently. Secondly (and related), I've not been able to get motivated enough to do a decent stint of RPGMaker Trans work.
Thirdly, I asked Ruby to serialise objects to JSON and it decided to insert raw binary into the JSON, rendering it useless.
Sometimes I almost think Ruby could be a serious language, and then I always run into run of these issues. Oh well.
