Hello again.
I know it's Rm2k3, the code is just for that system.

The code was supposed to be placed in RPG_RT.ini, even TyphAle99 managed to do it with simple instructions.
Whoever downloads the game and the error window appears may have the wrong impression and decide not to publicize their game.

About the songs:
Why OGG and not MP3?
Look:

Another thing, you left files like Packs and other formats that Rpg Maker doesn't use:
root:
  • Save files
Sound:
  • convert.bat
  • pd-0.47-1.windows-installer.exe
  • lame.exe
  • independent_nu_ljudbank-atmosphere_moody.7z
  • female_screams.zip
  • Horror Sound Library.zip
  • rpg_sound_pack.zip
  • qubodup-GhostMoans.zip

SWANS IN THE WALLOW

View attachment 187882

"Swans in the Wallow" is a retro-horror-mystery-adventure-game with RPG elements in insane 16 colors!!
Almost everything in this game I made myself: graphics, music, engine.
In classic adventure style you move through rooms, choose actions and solve puzzles.
This gameplay is loosened up by turn-based RPG combat encounters.
The game is packed with deep nostalgia for ancient text-adventure classics, subcultural references & love for mind**** plots.

Story:
Somewhere in East Germany: You wake up in your vacation home after a two-day blackout. But where is your husband Erik?
Nobody has noticed or knows how to help you further.
Neither the local metalhead savages, nor this ominous religious community that has sealed itself off from the outside world on an old farm for years.
You can't get rid of the suspicion that there are dark influences at work here:
is it the local satanists, the ooze from the surrounding swamp or is it the nameless cult?
Will the residents finally break their silence or will the "spirits" of nature lead you into your husband's arms once again?

Summary:
Genre: Adventure, RPG
Topic: mystery, horror
Language: English
Duration: ca. 2 hours
Features: Limited resources, few save points, go for the high score (!)

Inspiration:
Das Drachental, The Wind, Faith, Alone In The Dark, Resident Evil 7, Hidetaka Miyazaki, H. P. Lovecraft, Beherit, Taake, Neurosis, Leslie Gore, my bae (Ruby)

Music:
For the music I chose a mixture of Dark Ambient, Black Metal, Drum & Bass & Electro.

Here is the link for the OST of "Swans in the Wallow":

Dev with coffee,
I'm gonna sort everything out, my game doesn't use for the next update.
Looks like I'm free this weekend :)
(Yet I was pretty sure the resource data bank of 2003 doesn't recognize mp3?)

Your Rpg Maker is the version of Steam, is well updated compared to the version of the old Enterbrain, but there was already support for the MP3 format even in the old version, including you have other files in that format in the game folder.

Only with patches, but it natively supports MP3 so that should reduce the size a lot already, as Dev_With_Coffee suggested
Never mind I didn't realize there was another page in this thread, oops. I would delete this post but can't find any option to do so...

Yeah, I originally thought it wouldn't support mp3, because the ressource manager show different sound data with the exact same name. :p Never rly considered this before

I wish character bust packs had options for both side-facing and front-facing for the same characters.
Looks like I'm going to have to cancel another game.
For now it is in testing phase: Changing the game icon from Rm2k/2k3 without needing to edit the executable.

When there's a will, there's a lifehack. :ninja:

Before i mess with battle UI further, does it look decent enough? :hswt:
