    @ashyramoonwolf Wow! You have double the pressure; being on trial of one month for learning RPGMaker and... Making a game for the contest in that same amount of time! You are a great adventurer! *bows at your courage.*

    After countless nights and things I've fixed, I've provided a game version today. Now I will test the game again thoroughly and if everything goes well, upload. :)


    I am now very confused, where I have seen the folder of the created game. I searched the forum and google without success. Maybe someone can explain to me here? In the normal folder, where I have the file for editing the game, the 05.10. as the creation date and the 30.10. (today) as change date. In the folder of the game version, the 30.10. as date of creation (understandable) but 02.10 as date of modification. Can anyone explain to me?

    @Paladin-Cleric of Awesome every bug you find is one that doesn't make it into the game. ;) It would be far more worrisome to me if I found very few bugs...because you just KNOW they're in there...

    Today my progress was small, but significant because it involved the part I've been avoiding...making the randomized treasure chest tables. I also added more stuff to the shops (I'm pretty sure I went WAY overboard with the amount of accessories, but it's pretty late to overhaul it at this point) and fixed all my bugs that I discovered yesterday. I also went through the project and deleted a bunch of bloat...plugins, music, bgs, and pictures that were not being used. I also consolidated a couple tileset pages where it was trivial to do so, and deleted a bunch of unused content from some other tilesets. I'm down to 266 MB now without nitpicking my animations, music and se down to just exactly what I'm using...I have no idea if this is a reasonable RMMV pre-deployed project size, but I'm proud of myself because where it started was....huge. Staggeringly huge.

    We should get rid of the mp3 files unless we're deploying to Web/Android/iOS, right?

    I still have to add in the final boss's enemy/skills/troop, a few more lines of dialog, and a finale scene before I can deploy.

    WoooWeeeee! Getting down to the wire folks!!!

    7 DAYS LEFT!

    Today was awesome, I got soooo much done!!

    1.) 2 1/2 quests!!!!!
    2.) A surprising amount of custom graphic edits (I'm no artist)
    3.) Some really awesome animated cut scenes.
    4.) And now I know that my game will make at least two of my kids cry... (GOOD!)
    5.) More unique music picked out (still need a lot on this)
    6.) some, odds and ends, bug fixes

    Goals for tomorrow, FINISH THE ALPHA VERSION!! I need all the time I can get for testing and fine tuning. The end is in sight, yippy!

    Keep up the great work everyone!

    I really want to post some things about my game but with so little time left, I just want to get it done and submitted before I spend any time doing that. I'm getting close to finished. I have a few odds and ends to get done like a little bit of dialog and the final cut scene (which will be very short because long one happens right before the final battle and I got that done today). I still haven't ran through my game from start to finish or anything even close to that so I'm going to need time for that and most of my maps still aren't decorated so I feel like I'm really cutting it close. Wish I could take next week off from work. I see some late nights in my near future.

    I just started yesterday. Got my entire project planned out in Articy Draft other than the ending puzzle & unimportant maps. :)

    It's been fun using RMXP again after not touching it in 5 years. Really impressed by everyone's progress in this thread, especially the custom art. Keep up the good work!

    Ok. Awake at last. Had a good 45 min sleep in this morning which was heavenly! And now I'm going to go drive myself crazy bugtesting again!

    Got my first plugin-related error today. Something with theunpropro's Parallax Pro plugin crashes the game when I attempt to save. Tried to figure it out for a while since I know how to read javascript but I couldn't so I just took a nap. Then when I tried to recreate the issue so I could take a screenshot and post in the javascript help board, saving the game proceeded without error. At first I thought, ah, it's solved. But then I realised I didn't do anything and there's a chance the error could reappear any time. And if it appears for a judge, well, I'm dead. Hopefully I find it again.

    Or if anyone's ever used theunpropro's parallax pro plugin and knows about this save issue, please help me out :((

    So during testing this morn I found out 2 skills have problems (Checkmate, and one of the attack spells) I'm more concerned with Checkmate as that's, well, more important (with the attack spell I can just change it) I THINK I either copied the code wrong OR it just doesn't want to work with the Troop test in the database and will work fine in game... But I doubt it

    But I think I should be 1 all-nighter away from being just about finished (Hooray!) It's gonna be close, but I ain't giving up until the deadline! :rock-left::mrsatan::rock-right:

    Working on variables and testing them to see if the main flow of the game works. Then onto setting up monster attacks and balancing.

    Hey, I started a little late, but now that i finish drawing the tileset and sprites I'm going super fast. My game is called "the gnome seeker", its all about tracking other gnomes, a hide and seek game. Gnomes just make everything better and everyone happy jaja.

    Seeing some of the submissions is making me excited and a bit upset since I wasn't able to learn enough about the engine before the contest started lol.
    I only really began working on Rpg Maker VX Ace for about 1 week over the span of a month. Heck I just started on September and then the contest started :kaoblush:. Not to mention real life really keeps us all occupied. So much so that I can only enter the contest alone (darn-it lol) :kaocry:.

    I'm not really entering this contest for the money, though I would be lying if I said I wouldn't be happy to win. Anything I get from this contest would immediately get placed in to making my actual game later in the future.

    The contest to me is a way of evaluating what I learned so far and what I can keep improving on. Whether it be the story, mapping, music, ambiance, etc.:kaopride:

    Seeing as how we're near the end of the submission date.
    I wonder.
    What is this contest to you all?

    Motivation to make a complete game. I'm working on a big project that will take years, so it's a nice diversion.

    i already told myself 13 days ago "let's make a big demo of a full rpg in one month!" Mainly because I'm not rich enough to buy the license, so i hope it will help me to have it!
    So it's a personnal challenge and a chance to do what i want to do since 15 years... lol

    For me, to learn more about the RPG Maker. I wrote it a bit before, this is the first time, that i work on a "real" Game Project and i bought the MV Maker end of sept. I only play a bit arround and testing it (because i love rpgs and the look of this). Then comes the contest and i i see the chance to learn more, to finish a game and make ppl play it (eventually like it)
    To see all this good Images and the Progress Motivate me much more.

    @ashyramoonwolf at the moment there is a nice steam sale, just for info ;)
