Mm, I'll be using my RMXP to map though and the minimum size is 20x15. Would it be okay if I did 51x15 or 20x39?

Interesting.

Some questions(mostly confirmation):

1. Must I use the same ONE BGM for those 3 different maps?

2. You said it is either 3 17 x 13 maps or 1 map consists of 3 17x13 maps put together, so is 51x13 map or 17x39 map eligible for entry?

Thanks~~

That's a great idea, boldpaste :)

Okay, I'm still struggling with the map format. Could I, for instance, use 40x16 or 33x20 since it has fewer tiles as 51x13 or 17x39? Or does it have to be this very horizontal or vertical map?

But that would start to get into a story-type territory. Whereas we just want to focus on the atmosphere itself. :)
So no story? No NPCs? Just Map, and Music, and no interaction?

The contest is

Create an area and set the audio that accompanies it. You can choose any theme for your work. The judges will be looking at how well you've mapped your area and how the music and sound contribute to its atmosphere.
So, my guess any story interaction wouldnt add the score. Even random dungeon or field without any NPC should be fine

P.S: I made my map literally had no interaction

Are we limited to just "bgm" or can we use more as long as it fits the atmosphere?
You can use other sound.

So, basically I can use 51x26 (L shape) too or just 3 regions (17x13 each) and joined together in one map?
Let's keep it simple and go for 3 maps stacked horizontally/vertically, or 3 separate maps. Things like L shapes are better suited to separate maps. :)

The Gyrowolf Galactic music pack banner didnt bring me anywere. It just a banner without link
It works for me, can you please try reloading your browser and trying again?

That's fine. :)

1. You can use more than one song, but it should all be one theme (ex. if it's horror, all 3 songs should be horror)

2. Yes, 51x13 and 17x39 are fine.

Could I, for instance, use 40x16 or 33x20 since it has fewer tiles as 51x13 or 17x39? Or does it have to be this very horizontal or vertical map?
It can be smaller than 51x13 or 17x39, but not bigger. :)

So no story? No NPCs? Just Map, and Music, and no interaction?
You can add them, but they won't be counted toward the final score. :)

What sorts of scripts are we allowed to use?  Are all of them fair game, as long as they are properly credited?

Exciting! Thanks on everyone's behalf for your diligence in answering all of these questions, by the way. :) I have a quick one!

Would using a song from a musical group (a band) be acceptable? I would give proper credit of course, and this wouldn't be sold or used commercially or anything like that, but since you mentioned copyright I wanted to make sure. Thanks!

Would 3 or 4 different music tracks be ok? Or should it be limited to 1 or 2?

I think your only limited to the rtp, store packs, dlc, and member+ Items. I wasn't aloud to use my third party commercially licensed sound packages so the same should apply to the songs.

I think, your map can't be bigger than 663 tiles. If you multiply 44x40 it is 1760 and way bigger.

No, the music is limited to RTP, our store pack, community DLC, ReStaff, Member+ releases or your own creation.

You can use more than one track, but please keep in mind that they all have to be the same theme. The judges might also not stay on a map for long enough to hear multiple tracks. It might be better to focus on fewer songs. :)

No, 44x40 is too big.

You can enlarge the height or the width, but not both.

Can we edit the ressources ?

For example : changing the color or combining items ?

As long as it's the resources you're allowed to use, I guess it's fine

If the original resource fits the limitation and you're doing the edit yourself, yes.

No, that wouldn't fit the resource limitations. If you really really really NEED to use it and cannot find anything to replace it, get the musician wants to group up with you and enter the contest together as a 2-person team. :)

Looking back at some sketches, and game design documents on my PC dated summer of 2015. I started development with the release of MZ, but in 2015, I felt a strong desire to make a game out of the blue. I remember feeling sad for no apparent reason, and all these ideas rushed into my head. Now that I think about it, since that day, everything has become easier to do on my PC . . . it’s very creepy.
Everything's going to be alright! We're all in this together. <3
Aaaaannd published my game's tech demo. :D

Feel free to download and play it. And give feedback!
Hey everyone, we know that the edit bar is missing. We're working on it. You can talk about it in the announcement here: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/forum-errors-missing-edit-bar-etc.132715/
So, explain why we can no longer use BBC code or smilies in our posts? This sparks much sadness...
