The final copy of RPG Maker VX Ace will be given away in a raffle next Friday! To get an entry in the raffle you must write an article or tutorial and have it accepted on RMN by noon on Friday August 30th Saskatchewan time.

Ace will be given via Steam so you need an account to accept the prize. No substitutions.

GOGOGO!
Oh dear. I'll certainly try even though this seems kind of iffy to me!
Shit – I already just finished submitting an article up a few days ago (unless that can still count), darn. X_x

Oh well. I guess I’ll have to sit this one out. I’m actually going to be quite busy with some other things so I’m going to have to pass on this one.

(Besides, I'll probably just end up losing again.)
If this spammer/bot were to write an article about his feelings when he spams RMN, I'd read it.
My last chance to get a copy *_* Hmmmm, a tutorial... That won't be easy.
I've been racking my brain on what to do for this, so far it's coming up blank.

If you do, you are currently a guaranteed win - we have no submissions yet!
So.. I can write a random story? Or a story which may interest someone to making it into a game..? :I New to this as always.
It's possible Fluffpuff, according to the description under Articles - Anomalies...

'Anomalies
This section is a catch-all for anything that doesn't fit in the above categories. It may or may not be related to game making or RMN. It could have stories about pirates.'

However it seems like most stories end up in the 'Creative Corner' of the forum. If you are going for an Article you may want to consider sticking more to a newspaper or essay style...or at least make sure your story has pirates in it ;)

I've been looking at the tutorials for RPG Maker VX Ace on RMN and trying to note stuff I haven't seen covered yet. It's a small list but here it is:

1) Loop - Break Loop, Label - Jump to Label
2) Other functions of 'Move Route' (the ones that aren't so much movement)
3) Key items
4) 'Get Location Info...'

Pretty basic stuff there, however with the right presentation I think tutorials on them could be useful to people just starting out in eventing.
giaks, there are so many tuts and articles that cover the same exact thing. Some of them are so basic, that you could write a tutorial on how to use show pictures and waits to make battle animations. Or how to use the Import button.
haha, so true. I just listed a few things I wouldn't mind seeing posted as tutorials here on RMN in case someone was looking for ideas. I would read a tutorial on using show picture and wait to make battle animations, though I'd rather see a tutorial on using show picture and wait to make a side view battle system. I just enjoy the concepts of thinking outside the box when working with limitations. Now that you mention it though, I don't think I saw any VX Ace tutorials on how to use the 'Animations' tab in the database...so that could be added to the list.
*Lies, Incarnate made a tutorial video that somewhat covered the Animations.

Or even write a tutorial on how to write tutorials and articles :)
I wrote a quick tutorial once on my view on how to make tutorial videos *cough cough*

Boom...a few more ideas provided by Link and Giaks.
Thank giaks, I think I'm gonna make my story newspaper style.. but I don't know if the way my style of writing is counted as news style.. So I'm just gonna have fun just like last time.. xD
Doing this.

Coincidentally, my rpgmaker experience (of all things) is helping me to get a second interview at a company I'm looking to work for, and so this chance to win a copy of the maker is quite timely.
Do I just have to submit a tutorial to be signed up for this giveaway or should I do something else ? I am in the final stage of preparing one.Just need to think of how to write it properly.
I think it has to be submitted and accepted. As far as I can tell, that's the only restriction.
Well, I'm just waiting on it to be accepted, but I think I'm the only person who's currently submitted a thing.

I am super optimistic about my chances.

I've also been waiting for my article to get accepted, which has got me a little nervous seeing the deadline creep closer and closer.
