    SilentResident and Team Zelda have been working on The Project Zelda Engine on RPG Maker XP for years now. It has come along way and is one of the best starter kits and little engines out there even today.
    Now here is the chance to help it come to RPG maker VX Ace with backing from SR and Team Zelda themselves.

    Rules as in from Team Zelda 
    Do Not attempt to put PZE online *This was done by former ZeldaOnline, what is now known as ***Graal Online*** and they were sued and forced to take ZeldaOnline down), try to force unwelcomed, needed, or wanted content (adding files and scripts in even though it's agreed upon by the team this is a no) sabotage (deliberately modifying the engine to break content and usibility or deleting files, hopefully this won't be an issue, we do overlook accidents, so no need to worry if a "true accident" occurs) or leak the engine to others without permission, (this is how work is stolen and claimed by others, we put in too much work in, *Namely years* for it to be stolen and claimed.) 
     
    We will have to remove those that fail to abide by these simple rules from the team.
     
    Inactive status (extreme prolonged periods of inactivity, without a reason given will also result in removal from the team.) This isn;t centered at just one person, this is geared towards PZE remaining what it is currently, the engine everyone has come to love, it's not for profits, nor should be made commercial. 
     
    Finally, PZE takes no responsibility in legal any actions that would occur from those whose fail to acknowledge these Terms and Conditions, those who place our work online, do so own their own behalf!
     

    If you own XP and Ace and are interested in helping in any way let me know. I am sure I can find something for you to do. If you do not have XP this does not knock you out of a spot.
     
    Script Converter from XP to Ace
    One is already on the team but one (or two) more wouldn't hurt

    Script Researcher -

    Will look for Ace versions of the XP scripts that will not have to be translated to RGSS3 and suggest them to team lead (ShinGamix)

    Eventers -

    To recreate the events from XP version on the Ace Engine

    Tileset Converter-

    Will be using an external program provided by team leader (ShinGamix) to convert XP tiles to Ace. (Looking for at least two ppl.)

    Character Converter -

    Will be using an external program provided by team leader (ShinGamix) to convert XP Characters to Ace

    Databaser-

    Work on making the database for PZEA.

    Graphics Person -

    Will be resizing XP stuff to Ace sizes and possibly more.

    Mapper (open spot) -

    The Tileset converter will have first shot at making and re-creating test maps.


     
    Tester and more positions will open up in the future.

    As of April 2015 looking to rebuild the XP Team for Update 5!!

    I might be able to be an Eventer and a Character Converter, but I won't be on during the whole month of June, but if the recruitment is still going on by July, I'll glafly take those 2 positions ;)

    @Korros Look forward to hearing from you

    and going to make an app because I need to know a few things like if you own ace or XP and what a member's skills are.

    Edit- A lot of Musicians interested in this.

    Looking for nice remixes and melodies. (I don't want to hear Navi say Listen x1000 either!)

    I may be able to make a song here and there for this, with a Zelda style melody.

    https://soundcloud.com/the-music-boxx

    Not many samples I know, and neither are in a Zelda style however they are good samples of the quality of my work.

    I'm very familiar with the Zelda universe and music style, and would gladly contribute free of charge.

    If you're interested send me a message, I would gladly be willing to make a 15-30 second sample song according to what you request to see if I can meet your criteria.

    EDIT: Uploading a "Zelda inspired goron-esque shop music" right now.

    For Script Researcher, I could try looking for similar scripts to the ones used. Where can I find the scripts used in the xp program? Downloaded the game kit

    Databasing is fun as hell. I assume is would be researching items and etc., and then entering them if they ever need to be used? 

    I would gladly apply for the Databaser job...could you PM some info if there is a spot left?

    Just don't go randomly looking for any  Zelda Scripts.

    The researcher will have to submit Scripts that are all compatible or easily made compatible and have the same features at least.

    Some of the scripts are already translated.

    The screenshots above are from the original and what we are aiming toward.

    bumping still looking for people. Surprised more people are not willing to help get the Zelda Engine on Ace. Thought there would be a flood of people.

    I honestly don't know what to do. I can do random things...searching for stuff, databasing, etc. Anything, really. Except actual scripting. I can't do dat.

    If you still need script researchers, I could help. Have found a few potential candidates already while browsing for my own project :)
