      Lucid Dream SNES Style RPG

      I'm in the process of making an RPG based on lucid dreaming. Here are a few pics. I'm pretty much ready to release a beta (intro+one level with graphics, music, and menus, among other things, subject to change) if anyone wants to try it and critique it. Problem is I wouldn't know where to host it.




      EDIT: By the way it will be in full screen, I just minimized it to take the pictures.

      Wow! This looks like something I could definately get into. I love the oldschool nintendo like graphics. Theyre definately a plus. Just tell me where to sign up!

      Yes, this definately looks cool It's all graphics nowadays, but no gameplay (well, somewhat). That's why I love old-school. The games were meant to be something (unless they were liscensed...*shudders*)

      Well, it took me awhile to find a way to get it up on the net, but here it is. I've only worked on it for about three days so it's very beta and but a small portion of what the game will be. I'll appreciate critiques on dialogue, graphics, and gameplay so I can have some help on improving on it for when the full version comes. I may update every once and awhile.
      http://ca.geocities.com/[email protected]/T...alDream/TED.zip
      To play choose the RPG_RT.exe file in the main folder. Screwed up system, I know. Anyways the starting pictures are probably going to be changed later, as is the opening music, as is the text and box system, I'm going to have a panning of the dreamviews main page as an opening, and the controls are as follows:
      Enter-Select/Continue Dialogue
      Arrows of course are movement
      Esc brings up the menu (which will probably change)
      Sleep starts the game
      Dream loads saved game
      Wake up ends the game
      In game the menu doesn't do anything but remember saves and false awaken brings you to the main menu.
      Hope everything works. Let me know if it doesn't and if you have any critiques if it does.

      Here's another link that should hopefully work better. Even if it works the same, chances are that one will work at any given time.

      Click the link that says, "Here's the Game." You can't link remotely on there.

      Whoa, this is great.. I'm definitely going to try it out.

      How do you create these type of games, anyway? I know nothing about this..

      Edit: Oh, I'm having trouble.. I downloaded the zip file and a whole list of things came up when I went to unzip it..

      I think you just click "Extract" and choose a folder (I don't know the exact problem here.) It's because there's alot of stuff in that file, like picture files to let the engine know how to make stuff look. Read my other post for instructions on how to play.

      Okay, I need some help here. I can't find a decent file hosting service. They either don't allow zip files or are down too long. Also, for those who did download it, the RTPe.exe message has recently been brought up to me. I didn't think that this would be a problem but it is. See, there is an 11 megabyte run time package needed for the engine to run that I didn't think was needed so much as an add on. I'll host this as well as the engine itself so that the RTPe.exe file isn't a waist (you'll be able to make your own RPGs relatively easily) once I have a decent host.

      I made it with RPGMaker2000 or RM2K as some call it. I have finished some customizations on the dialogue boxes, made the first level longer, and I'm thinking that level two is going to be coined: "Dreamviews Castle." If I do go through with this idea then I'll like a few people to sign up as characters for this place. Say what you want your character to look like, act like, etc. I'm not going to reveal yet, but I have several funny jokes planned. One scene might have something to do with a certain post-whore who has an avatar of a martial artist.

      For those who got the game before the host went down or want to make games with this program here is a link to a few links. You download and install RM2K first then you download and install RTP to the same folder. Of course, my game goes in this folder aswell (if you got it.)
      http://www.winsite.com/bin/Search?id=2500000036460 (EDIT:Number 8 and number 6)
      So you'll have a folder called (for example) RM2K that has the RM2K components in it and a folder called RTP also in it. If you managed to get my game in time then you'd also have a folder called Ted in it. Hope that works.

      I knew it was RM2K! I use that sometimes, it is kickass. I haven't made anything because i've never had a storyline.

      Maybe I should fire it up again.
      The best times of your life should not be when you're still so young, or else you'll live a life always dreaming of the past.

      Make an Aphius set and I'll make you the conductor of the floating train. On second thought even if you don't I will. That is if you want to be the conductor and Dream Views Kingdom resident.

      Do you know the proper size and settings for RM2K?
      EDIT: How's this? I still need a face graphic set at the size 48 pixels by 48 pixels.

      Finally, a working link. Thanks goes to Kaniaz for hosting it. Remember it's still pretty beta and only a demo.
      http://springfieldwesterntack.com/kstuff/d...e/ldguy/TED.zip
      So you do this:
      http://www.winsite.com/bin/Search?id=2500000036460 (EDIT:Number 8 and number 6)
      So you'll have a folder called (for example) RM2K that has the RM2K components in it and a folder called RTP also in it. Then you unzip my game to that folder.
      You don't need the RM2K part but it allows you to make your own games relatively easily. The RTP part is needed.
      You select the RPG_RT.EXE file to play. Arrows move, enter selects/continues dialogue, and F12 brings you to the title screen. On the title screen, sleep starts the game, dream continues the game (if you have a saved spot), and wake up ends the game.
      I hope everything works this time.
