Let's say I've made a map, with music from a source that I bought on steam, using tiles from the community pack, and I'm crediting all these people. Is there any reason I would be disqualified?

PS, if I create an encrypted hard drive (which I must 'cause I have purchased assets) will there be any forseeable problem with that? Do I need to include every asset that is used in the game if it's directly from the RTP?

Edit 1: I done screwed up my map. You said 3 17x13. So I multiplied 17 by 3 and 13 by 3, cause I'm some sort of genius. XD

Anyways. I'm going to fix it.

Your not alone, I had made that mistake as well and had to correct it half way in. xD If you are using the rtp, there is no need to include it (encrypted or not) because nearly everyone here already has the RTP. If you give credit from the resources you have used and they are within the limitation of the rules, you should have no problems.

EDIT: If you made edits to the RTP, then you would have to include the edits (like I did).

About entering as a 2-person team,does both persons need to have an account on forum?

Will mentioning his/hers name in the credits be enough?

Just need to make doubly sure about size.

So, here are some calculations:

3 17x13 maps = 663 tiles

According to the rules, it can be same size or smaller...

So, as long as the map is under 663 tiles, it qualifies?

Example:

30x22 = 660 tiles. (Qualifies?)

@GRIMMJOW - I rather enjoyed this entry. It had that Arabian knight feel to it and I thought the music fit well with time and setting. That thunderbolt scared the life out of me because I had my headphones on with base boost xD

Nice map.  But I did notice something.  When it starts there is a brief moment when you see the untinted screen, it then fades out and then comes back in with all the lighting effects.  If you had all of that set to parallel process it would happen before the player sees the map.

Ok guys, this is my FINAL ENTRY

The name is Lethe's Fate. The name of the controlled character is Lethe.

I wanted to try something of a psychological horror style. The little stoy has a somewhat disturbing theme, so... tread lightly.

I would suggest two things: search everything and there are 8 notes to find if you want to know what happened in the story.

CREDITS

Music Lethe's Fate Main Theme composed by me just for this contest

SFX Enterbrain : RpgMakerVxAce RTP

Graphics Enterbrain : RpgMakerVxAce RTP (I only used whatever VXAce has by itself, no dlcs, no ReStaff, no scripts)

Scripts None

I had so much fun making this and it turned out something I am proud for. It took me 4 days to make the maps, the music and the story! To anyone who plays it, thank you  :D  Tell me what you think!

Good luck to everyone!!!! (Now I have time to play the other entries!!!! I'll comment soon!)

O_O .....O-M-G....the feels!!! I think you've already beat my entry. In yours, you told a story without using any word at all...well, there was the title, but still. Loved it. Bravo!!!

I've read that no points will be counted story-wise, just on mapping and music accompaniment.

I like this one. It's quite morbid, and I am still curious as to what exactly happened there (pretty sure I found all 8 notes), since it leaves things a bit ambiguous. Almost like this guy is caught is some kind of layer of hell.

Working on mapping using RPGTools to create parallax maps using PVgames tiles/assets. It's super cool... but mapping is still something I drag my feet on getting done. I hate this but love the math parts of design, which is the opposite of a lot of dev's around, I think. It really do be different strokes for different folks.
