Hello,

My first post here, but I think I have seen some familiar faces around.

Almost 4 years ago I started making an XP game, after playing all the Aveyond ones and being really impressed. I bought the program, and jumped right into it, and then life happened. A breakup, moved out, didn't have a laptop/computer for a year, plus after a computer crash I lost everything. All collected materials, RTP edits, facesets, snippets of scripts.. I thought I had backed it up on an external hard drive, but I hadn't.

Still angry at myself about it, but I'm cautiously ready to try again. I still have my notes on the game, and through some miracle, the sprites that I uploaded to Photobucket (And on a related note, is there a decent photo hosting page, that does what Photobucket used to, I could use instead?)

However. Now for my request:

Back when I first started playing with RMXP, I found a "demo" someone had made, to help others with coding. It had really nice maps as well, all done with RTP. From the first map, you could access different, themed maps that showed you all sorts of different things you could do, and when you talked to the NPCs, they would tell you what they were doing, and then you could go and check out the coding of it afterwards. I can remember weather effects, a lovely beach scene, and some very excited sheep in a pen on a hilltop. :D Unfortunately I can't remember the name of whoever made it and shared it so helpfully.

If anyone can recognise it from this very vague description, please could you give me a push in the right direction - is it still up? Could you share it? (The resources that were already scant 4 years ago, are even more scarce now, I have been reading a lot of stuff on Way Back Machine.)

Thank you in advance.

tuskel,
sincerely

I've moved this XP Support.

Resource Requests is aimed at graphics and music, not coding.
When you say coding, do you mean it was a demo that showed off eventing, kind of like a playable tutorial or was this a script demo that showed off their scripts?

(I use Imgur instead of Photobucket.)

Hi,

Yes, it was more like help with eventing. I can't remember what kind of changes they had made in the script, if any. (I mean, they most likely had, I just didn't really look into it.)

Thank you, this is exactly what I'm talking about! Now I just have to beat those grey cells up to try and remember everything I learned before.. :D

I just don't know why, but it's funny.

Ugh. The one time I forget to save every hour or so is also the day my computer crashes. That's life!
Even though I spent 100's of dollars on my game already. I think I might just have to give it away for free. Since I haven't heard back from people if I could use some of their graphics. Even from a global mod here. Maybe I can make a donation thing.
you know, some days you get resentful that game dev is even considered a "fun job" and other days it's like, welp, time to roll up my sleeves and code these molotov cocktails
If you suck at playing trumpets, that is probably why.
