I'm excited to participate!
Just one question though: does the character have to be based off a generator creation, or can I create my own sprites and design from scratch?

Edit:
Unfortunately I think I jumped the gun on this one, I won't be able to participate because I have other important things I should be doing. :kaosigh:
I'll look forward to seeing everyone's entries though!

Ah I have always wanted to give this contest a try!

Question; if we do not win, do we still get to keep our creation if we ever wish to use them?

Are Custom Bodies allowed?
Can we use the same character for both MV and MZ or should they be different characters?

(This contest makes some of the more 'buggy' issues with the maker apparent, like tails and hair layering).

You would need to enter different characters into each. Also they would need to be useable in a game with MV/MZ RTP characters.

(This doesn't exclude custom bodies necessarily, as Caz for instance did a slime. Or in the last contest someone did a floating winged dot thing. But it does mean that like "tall body" human bodies wouldn't really work).

This is somewhat confusing to me. Am I to understand that the 'you may not create threads or status feeds' part of it is specifically referring to RPGMakerWeb threads/status feeds and not, say... My facebook status feed or a thread on a different site?

Yes, this, it's about not advertising on the forums themselves. Voting will start tomorrow!

Wait, I thought voting was supposed to start today, the 13th!

It is currently barely passed midnight in Pacific time which is what we use. So while yes, it is technically the 13th, it is the middle of the night. I meant "voting will start after I've gone to sleep and gotten up again".

There will be threads up for voting around noon Pacific on the 13th.

Should probably link the additional voting threads here and in the voting threads.

Grats to all the winners!

Hey everyone, I'm going to do the winners announcement post after we get the edit bar fixed. It's kind of hard to do any announcement without formatting! Thanks for the patience.

Oh, you mean that wasn't on purpose? The timing made me think it was, lol. (Well, I believe you can still do formatting if you know how... I'm not going to test that here though since this isn't my forum to mess around with, but it worked on other xenforo forums.)

Yeah our templates got screwy. And it's too much of a pain to do formatting by just remembering codes and stuff. It should be fixed early next week anyway (like Mon-Tues).

I won't finish it today, I only will have time to work on that next Saturday, what a shame... :(
I made something for @LittenDev [as he requested]
It's been a weird while. I've been so torn down that even playing video games has been something I avoided. But I shouldn't forget two things. One, I love RPG Maker for a reason. Two, only way to eat an elephant is a bite at a time.
How do people even enjoy RGB keyboard and mouse lighting? It's distracting.
