Thanks so much! Always good to hear that people dug it!

Glad you're digging it! Unfortunately, it doesn't have that kind of feature. If you're using Windows, though, you can right click on the speaker volume icon in the lower right of your start bar, click "volume mixer," and adjust the volume for Jimmy there.
Weird. So, normally, it should be saving to the base directory where the game's .exe is, which is "Resources." I don't have a Mac in front of me, so I can't see what you're seeing, but can you go to that specific folder and set permissions?
Unfortunately, since I used RPG Maker to make Jimmy, I don't have the know-how nor resources to make that kind of update. It does seem like there might be some workarounds as per this article:
...but that seems like it's going to be complex. I'd love to hear if anyone is successful in getting this to run on Catalina.
Wow, that's even more poignant; I admit that this was the first Grimith LP I watched, so I just assumed he was a guy who wore his heart on his sleeve. I'm really touched that Jimmy has been able to reach people on that level. I hope that my future games can hold onto that as they improve in other areas!
Also, damn, there's definitely a clear connection with Jimmy that they would appreciate, re: the phoenix imagery. Hope they like it!
Thanks so much! I enjoyed Grimith's LP; he shared a personal story near the end of his LP that really got at Jimmy's mindset towards the end of the game, and it was so heartfelt that it really stuck with me.
Hey, probably a silly question, but you downloaded the Mac version, right? If so, you should just have to run Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass.app. If you're doing all of that, is it coming up with an error message or what?
That's an old naming scheme that I should adjust, actually. But, the "regular version" is just the game run through an interpreter called "mkxp." Mainly, it will just allow you to adjust the screen size as if it were a window. The "Legacy version" will let you switch between a few set screen sizes.
Edit: I changed the display names to make this a bit clearer. Really, either version should work just fine.
You should be able to save anywhere--with the exception of a few areas where saving is disallowed because it could cause some problems when I update the game. Most likely, you should be able to save where you're at. If you can actually open up the save menu, then the folder the game is in might need to have more permissions:
Thanks! A couple of these things slipped by because I saved over a spritesheet on accident with an older version of it after I testplayed those areas. I'm going to do a quick run through soon--probably today--and update.
I'm aware of the error message--it's totally harmless and will be addressed in the next update. I was just putting it out there before I patched it in case other bugs came up. So, are you thinking that your computer just has some issues running RPG Maker games through mkxp?
That's something that might be on the horizon. There are a few outstanding issues with the mkxp version, which is what I would use to run it on Linux, so I'd like to smooth those out first.
Hey, thanks for checking it out! Unfortunately the lack of d-pad support on some controllers is a quirk of RPG Maker. However, if you're cool with running Joy2Key, you just have to set up the d-pad as the arrow keys.
