Title: Resource Links
Post by: modern algebra on June 01, 2009, 05:17:48 PM
This is by no means a comprehensive list, but just some that I've come across and been impressed by. If anyone has any they'd like to share, please post and I will add them.

Some of these links are from Mistrust's Resource Links (http://rmrk.net/index.php/topic,131.0.html) topic.

Also note that some of these sites have terms of use and most require credit.
It is your responsibility to credit the makers of any resources you use under their terms.

You'll want to update the link for Blogshin Tiles.  He's moved to here: http://blogshinvx.wordpress.com/

I don't know what happened. but I think rpgmakerbrasil got hacked since going to it now attempts to infect you with a bunch of trojans.

Title: Re: Resource Links
Post by: modern algebra on November 17, 2010, 05:04:23 PM
@Weaville - Sure, but who are people to credit if they use resources from that site? As it seems that they aren't all by you, it would be a good thing to put information beside each resource as to who made it and who should be credited if used. I'd prefer for the site to have that info, but there is some good stuff there so once that's done I will definitely add it.

@Terra - sure thing!
Title: Re: Resource Links
Post by: Weavile on November 19, 2010, 08:34:46 PM
Modern Algebra, i have begun adding credits. Look at the gallery. What do you think of the progress?
Title: Re: Resource Links
Post by: modern algebra on November 19, 2010, 08:55:51 PM
It's a start. The animal facests you have that you say are by unknown are by Soruve though. Also, some of the tiles are by Mack. Keep up the good work and I'll add it soon.

I haven't checked each and every one of the links, but I believe these weren't put up so I shall:

Yeah, they aren't in English.

Some of the links are down, which is too bad, because I think it sounds like you've really found a goldmine here :)
Title: Re: Resource Links
Post by: hiromu656 on April 08, 2011, 02:42:56 AM
Thought it'd be necessary to share this.

Found a site filled with Battlers for RTP battlescenes.

Title: Re: Resource Links
Post by: modern algebra on April 08, 2011, 01:30:13 PM
Thanks for sharing. I added it as Cradle of Cyanide

I also added towaemoa and blackscrap, but didn't add oldscratch since I think you have to be Japanese to use those resources. At least the top says: "Foreigners can not be used.Japanese only."

I also scanned the links and crossed out any that are offline currently. If anyone knows if the site just moved, please tell me and I can restore the link.

I was using OpenComposer and the music seems too quiet compared to the other bgm's in the game and I've tried editing them in 'Audacity' but it wouldn't upload them right. Does anyone know what program I could use(to make the midi's louder)? Maybe the files from OpenComposer are outdated and can't be edited?

Post by: Strak on August 01, 2012, 03:17:59 AM
Umm... Maybe it's just me, but... is Cradle of Cyanide down?

EDIT: Looked around, found another link to it. Looks a little revamped. Just click on Material (http://cyanyurikago.web.fc2.com/material.html) to get to the "original" link.

OK, well it definitely works for me, and Strak too apparently, so I am keeping the link up.

Oh okay... darn it. All those beautiful battlers and I can't download a single one.  :'(
Title: Re: Resource Links
Post by: modern algebra on October 16, 2012, 01:55:14 AM
Maybe the site's been blocked on your computer?

You could try to get them off a different computer if so.

Yeah probably.

EDIT: Nope. On a different computer and it still doesn't work. I wonder if I can ask for a zip of all the battlers, but for some reason Cradle of Cyanide is not working for me.

Post by: Strak on November 01, 2012, 11:50:16 AM
Not sure if this one's already up, but they've got some really good RTP style facesets, and some character portraits. Didn't take a huge look around, but there may be more to it.

http://kimailanoori.blog.fc2.com/ (http://kimailanoori.blog.fc2.com/)

EDIT: Possible nametag "Cage Chimera." That's what shows up on my screen, anyway.

EDIT: Be sure to carefully examine all the links on the right side of the page! There are tons of amazing websites filled with fantastic resources; some of which have yet to be discovered here!
Example: Some fantastic battlers here, and some phenomenal RTP faces. Nirvana Exhibition Institution (http://castlenirvana.sakura.ne.jp/index.html)

Post by: Dark_Metamorphosis on November 25, 2012, 01:02:53 AM
As for the Japanese sites.. Im not that good at understanding the language, so Im afraid of using anything from there.. since you stated that some of them wants you to credit them if you use their work.

Im really interested in the kaduki charsets mostly, since those would be insane to use in a animated battles script.
Any suggestion how I should figure out if I need to credit them back? It states that Its my own responsibility, and I truly understand this.. but I guess best way is to not use it if I cant understand what is stated on the website right?  :P
