    Note that I don't want anything converted from XP. Legal issues, you know. I'd like to know whether anyone has resources in the XP style- that is, with a less gaudy color palette than Ace. Candacis' tiles are good; they're still Ace-styled but with less saturation.

    The reason I ask is because I'm unsure if it's such a great idea to buy a whole Maker just for the artwork. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

    If you can rustle up the $25 it's worth it because it's not just the XP RTP itself, it's also all those great RTP edits out there.

    As an alternative - there is a tutorial somewhere by Avery(?) which shows how to make Ace resources more XP like.  It's about adjusting the saturation etc.  Might be worth looking at, because then that opens up another big pool of possible resources for you.

    Don't suppose you could be more specific than "a tutorial somewhere"? For instance, do you remember whether it was in the VX Ace tutorial forum?

    Sorry, if I could have been more specific I would have done.  For example, I'm not sure if it was by Avery or whether Avery did a translation of a German tutorial by PandaMaru, or whether it was by someone else entirely (though I think that's less likely). It's going to be somewhere in the tutorials section, at least a few months back, because I haven't seen it very recently.

    It may be that someone passing by this thread will have more specific information, but I wouldn't rely on it, as people are so busy with IGMC that there is probably less casual browsing of threads than normal.

    EDIT

    And Sharm posted while I was typing, so there you go.
