Epic Defaults Contest

Post by Peva on Mon Nov 01, 2010 11:20 pm


This contest starts now. It ends on November 29th, the last Monday in November, and all winners will be announced December 1st or earlier.

Very Happy Rewards:
1st place - 300 Gald, 10 cookies, and 50 points for your Guild. This can be used any time.
2nd place - 100 Gald, 5 cookies, and 30 points for your Guild. This can be used any time.
3rd place - 50 Gald, and 15 points for your Guild. This can be used any time.
Participation - 5 points for your Guild. This can be used any time.

Twisted Evil Judges:
Peva
Elfsong
Mitchi

Question Contest:
Now, on to the contest. You use the RPG Maker VX engine, and making a game, NEVER editing the Script Editor or Database (this means no common events either Mad), and NEVER importing custom resources. Only use what is included. Other than that, no restrictions. When you submit your game, it must be Un-encrypted so me and the other two judges can paste a fresh new database in there to be sure you didn't make any little tweaks. Make sure the theme is a basic RPG with evil people and whatever. Also, a minimum of 30 minutes of gameplay.

scratch Exceptions:
-You can import a Title Screen image and custom music for title screen
-You can edit the Terms tab under the database.
-It would be highly appreciated if you add the OmegaDev splash package.
-You can add your own Custom Window skin.
-You can make up to 3 "Key Items"
-You can import your own Font.
-Remember that \n[x] IS allowed. But all default names must remain the same.
-For cut scene purposes, any of the actors can start off with no sprite graphic, but when the sprite is restored, it must be the default.
-Under the Systems Tab, you can edit Sounds and Music, the starting party, along with the games title. (Thanks Vectomon!)
-You can have up to 3 pictures from outside in your game. They must go in the Pictures folder.

Suspect Watch out for:
SPELLING! It is a very important thing, and you can have Elfsong beta test your game before you submit it.

Well, happy RMing Wink

I like this competition. It gives new members a high chance of winning. Maybe you could place the deadline longer so that more members can join.

Exeption:
You must add the OmegaDev title script. lol.

JOIN NOW PEPS!

Since I already participated 2 times, I'll be judge this time. Smile

Peva, add more info other the number of gameplay minutes. Add a theme as well. Since it's for Thanksgiving, you can call this the Thanksgiving 'Defualts' contest.

Each participant must make a game that is connected with Thanksgiving Day.
And the criteria as well.

Creativity(with the limited resources\features from events)
Story(Relevance to the theme)
Dialogue\Grammar
Design\Presentation(mapping and other stuff connected to visuals)

@Omegas
If you approve this, you could post this contest again yourself so that it will be official.

What the fuck's thanksgiving?
As in, I know you eat turkey and "give thanks", but that's all I know about it. How can that be a theme?

I'll be participating. ;D
Are we allowed to use portraits of the RTP instead of the faces? I prefer them...
(And by that I mean have a big portrait of the character show up instead of their face for a message...)

You could, if you were allowed custom scripts. Which I thought it said you weren't.

There's no need for that, either. You can have them as actual faces, but they must be only one portrait per actual faceset. ;D

This contest is made to push the limits of non-scripting. I also made one more exception.

It doesn't need any scripts... @__@
All it needs is to be a faceset, for each portrait. So long as you choose the very first Initial piece of the 8 which would be faces, it will work...

What exactly is the theme...? Anything? If there isn't one, that'd be awesome. I love contests with restrictions like this that aren't actually restricting on storyline, etc, just how you make it. (Time limits, resource limits, etc)

Can I change Ralph to start with no graphic (For an intro cutscene) as long as his graphic is returned to normal after the cutscene? Nothing is really being changed about him.

Yeah that would be fine. And yeah no real theme.

And dezz, as long as you only use what is included in the RPG Maker Vx download, your cool.

Just let me see if I get this straight...
We can't edit the actor graphics, and the initial party must consist of Ralph, Ulrika, Bennet and Ylva? If not, won't pasting a fresh new database undo those changes?

Well you can have a starting event get rid of those party members. I will only paste the new database in the areas that apply.

But if we can edit the "system" tab, we can edit the starting party members, right? I mean, there are more default actors we can use.
