SE, I could be wrong, but I think Blind used music from Donkey Kong, which in my opinion is pretty awesome and is a great choice. ^_^

myersguy, I'm having trouble downloading your entry. I recommend that you don't include the RTP, as we can download that easily enough if we need it. Also, your host is incredibly slow! Or at least it is for me, I let it go for over an hour, and it never made it further than 50%.

What are you listening to? [Music]

I bet you $500 that George Martin wrote all of their music and that the whole thing was a sham.

I would gladly make that bet. ^_^

Legacies of Dondoran

I started a file on this, it's pretty awesome so far! I'll see how far I can get. :)

A few Common Events

So I tested this out, with the code being:

Input Key Processing (shift key)
Branch (If variable = 7)
move event hero (begin jump, move forward, move forward, end jump)
variable change back to zero
End Branch

This works perfectly, I found. As long as the movement event has "ignore impossible moves" selected. If you're two tiles away from something impassible, your hero will not jump at all. But if he's right next to an impassible tile, he'll jump over it so long as there's a passible tile on the other side. I encountered no bugs of getting stuck.

A few Common Events

Liberty, does that only happen with the forward command? I thought checking the "ignore impossible moves" would fix that. I could be wrong. I'll test it out.

I feel like I'm missing someone important... Oh well. That's a pretty good summary of the books and authors I've enjoyed most. I'm not entirely sure on the order though, as it depends on the mood, but I did the best I could. ^_^

Well, here's my entry!

And of course, a screenshot.

One thing to note, there is a little story sort of mini game in there. It should be said that there is no way to actually lose at the mini game. There are six possible outcomes of the story game! Also, the story game is kind of a rip off of Final Fantasy 9's similar sidequest. ^_^

A few Common Events

I think you can simplify the first part. Instead of checking to see which way the hero is facing, I think you can just do "start jump", "move forward" "end jump". Or something like that. There's a forward command, anyhow.
