|Guide to Posting in the Resource Forum|
The forum rules apply to this forum. No spamming, trolling, flaming, or double posting, please. If you're unfamiliar with the forum rules, please take a moment to review them.
Please wait 36 hours to bump a topic. Please only bump request or feedback topics, do not bump topics submitting your work if you feel they're not getting enough attention.
If you need to add more to your post, use the Edit button. It doesn't bite, I promise.
Do not spam other people's topics with an unrelated request. Do not PM spriters or musicians asking them to work for you. If they want to take a request, they'll look at the request forums.
Search, search, search
Please search the web, the main site, and this forum before requesting a resource. It's possible that what you're requesting already exists.
Illegal Activity and Plagiarism
Copyright infringement (posting a resource without credit) and plagiarism (posting a resource that is not yours and claiming it as your own) are frowned upon and may result in a warn. Posting an edit of someone's original work without crediting the original artist is also plagiarism.
And as always, please do not include links to warez such as cracked versions of Photoshop. Doing so will result in a warn.
Topic-Specific rules and guidelines
Requesting a Resource
1. Be clear and concise. Don't use a lot of chatspeak in your request, spriters and musicians are more likely to take a request from someone who sounds "serious," because a serious developer is more likely to actually finish the game they're requesting for.
2. If you're requesting a graphic, include the following information:
- What platform is it for? (ie, RPG Maker 2k3 or XP)
- If a characterset, what template should it be on? If a tileset or autotile, what template should it be scaled to fit and what other resources does it need to work with (ie, RTP)? If a battler, what battlesystem should it work with?
- What should it look like? Be as precise as possible, and include reference images if at all possible.
- If you're asking for a tileset, what needs to be on it?
3. If you're request music, include the following information:
- What format do you prefer? (Midi, ogg, mp3)
- What sort of scene is it for? What should the mood be?
- Do you prefer a certain style (orchestral, techno, etc)?
- What is the setting of the game (modern, steampunk, fantasy)?
- Is there an existing work with a similar "feel" to what you want?
4. If someone tries to help you, even if their advice or help doesn't work for you, be polite and say thank you. If you're being rude to the people who are trying to help you, no one else will see any reason to try and help you.
5. If you're requesting a large amount of resources, be prepared to be disappointed. It's unlikely that someone will be willing to devote the time to make 5+ charactersets, more than one battler, or a full tileset. You can try, and you may get lucky. But you'll have more luck keeping your requests small and manageable.
Posting a Resource
If you're posting a resource you did not make, make sure the artist is okay with you doing so. Also, be sure to include the artist's name in a visible way somewhere early in your post. It is very important to direct the credit (and blame) for the resourcein the correct direction to avoid the appearance of plagiarism.
This rule also applies to edits of someone's original work, make sure the artist is okay with their work being edited and distributed and credit the original artist
