    I purposely halved the monsters so it would stick to the ~30$ price range.

    The rest will go to DS+

    I take it that's why there aren't any animations, emotion balloons, sound, or music effects either?

    DS+ was the sequel to RMDS. It came out around the same time as Ace. It had new resources that RMDS didn't get, but like RMDS it was not released outside of Japan.

    So does this mean it might be released soon? or are there legal issues that is preventing it from being released outside of Japan?

    DS+ is actually in the work right now. We're still in the conversion process. Still no ETA yet.

    Okay. So...will the DS+ pack cost more? Or does it have less battlers to begin with? Or...?

    No, it will most probably cost the same, as this was the exact reason why we split the amount of battlers in half. We needed some form of standardization to prevent potential issues involving even other products. While it's unfortunate that in this particular situation we are unable to offer you the best deal, we just have to do it as otherwise it'd upset many others who have different needs.

    I have a couple problems with the DS pack.

    Firstly, I read the changelog and it doesn't look like this was fixed, or if I am just looking at it wrong. In the Interior_Castle_TileB tileset, there are some things at the very top that appear to be cut off that have no visible completions as everything else seems to be in place. The only thing at the top that seems to have a looping graphic is the book/papers at the base of the bookshelf. I was wondering if it was intended to not have those extra whatever-they-ares and just forgot to edit them out, or is it a bug that hasn't been fixed? I guess it's not that big of an issue for most people, but I have CDO and it's really kinda bugging me to use that tileset knowing there's a whole top section that's just been cut-off.

    And my second problem is, I can't download the updates for the DS pack because steam doesn't show that I bought it, even though I did, so I can't get any of the free goodies/updates you guys keep updating with. (Also looked into the changelog for my first problem and couldn't find it, hence why I posted it.) How can I get the updates and the like if steam is being lame and not registering my purchase? I mean it is in my RMVXA steamapps folder, so I clearly downloaded from steam, but it's not showing me that I have purchased it, thus not making me able to get it's regular updates :( .

    Please help and thank you.

    EDIT:

    P.S. On a side note, for the DS+ pack, you can always do a thing with it when it comes time to release where if you show proof of purchase(ex. enter the product key or whatever) when you go to Check Out when buying the DS+ it could give like a 15% discount or something. Just my two cents.

    Very sorry for the late reply. Those are the bottom parts of the walls in Interior_Castle_TileA5.

    Thank you for the reply. Also I was wondering if you had an answer for my other question regarding the acquisition of the updates? Steam is apparently enjoying taking over a week replying to my ticket.

    Unfortunately that is beyond my reach, as I am only in charge of technical support. As far as I know this could only have been a failure on Steam's end. But I'll try to look into this ASAP. I apologize for any inconvenience.

    I purchased the DS resource pack through the official store during Golden Week. How would I go about upgrading my version from 1.3 to 1.4? I've looked around the store and don't see a way to redownload previously purchased product and, of course, the link in my email is to the older version.

    Thanks for any help.

    The link in your email should redirect automatically to the newest version. Might have to open a customer service ticket if it isn't.

    What if you deleted the email that gives you the download link? I still have my email confirming my purchase. Will that allow me to get another link?

    Thank goodness! So do I write up a sales report ticket under the report section? Or do I contact someone else in particular?
