Looks fun, will probably join this.
Question though about the plugins rule...
Is it saying you can use any script/plugin you want as long as it does not add/require non-RTP assets?
For example is a custom menu layout script okay? Could I theoretically use Moghunters monogatari menu script if I remove all of the non-rtp images and particle effects in it and replace with RTP icons and battlebacks?

Same goes for battle-systems, is a sideview battle system like Theolized allowed as long as the battlers are just RTP sprites and icons?

Or even say Galvs fishing script? If I painstakingly replaced all the custom assets with RTP is it legal now?

The rule seems so broad that I cant really think of a script/plugin that wouldnt be allowed...

Edit: forgot a question!

What's the rule on changing the font? Is it not allowed? Are only free-to-use fonts that anyone can use legal? Is it anything goes? What's up?

Yes, you can replace custom assets in a plugin that uses them with default assets and use it. Drifty made a title screen with Moghunters title particle effects with little harolds spinning around lol.

You have to use default font... sadly :LZSlol:

Does extra content count toward the 30-minute limit?

Like for example
Extra characters that you can unlock after the game is finished?
:wub

Your game can be over thirty minutes if you like, but we are only obligated to judge the first thirty minutes.

That's not what I asked. I asked if extra content was automatically contributing to the 30-minute limit?

How are we going to know it's extra content? If the credits roll, we're probably going to turn the game off so anything after that would likely be missed entirely. I'm confused as to what you're referring to exactly.

Should we allow custom splash screens?

Ew, why does my blogpost on the rpgmaker.net site look like a garbled mess? Are html codes disabled or something?
