Where does talk about a new game go?

Where should we post information about a project we are working on, if we either want comments or to promote it? Game Discussion & Development says "Do not post topics about your game here." but it wouldn't belong in Off-Topic because it's about a game that is in development.

Same question for Artwork. If the art is being done for a game, where's the mid-point?

Timezone change results in error page

I'm trying to set my timezone to -6 (which will still be wrong, if I set to -7 the site will be 1 hour behind me) and I get this message:

Forbidden (403)

CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.

More information is available with DEBUG=True.

rm2k - Anyone have an Empty game?

With all values, names, items, monsters and graphics cleared and deleted?

Free map editor similar to RmVX but of course not warez?

I am currently using Rpg Maker VX to draw a world map for something completely unrelated but the trial will expire in 6 days. Can anyone tell me where to find a generic map editor, that has the same drawing abilities as the Rpg Maker series? Needs to support 32x32 pixel tiles, Box draw, Layers and Auto-tiles - Especially auto-tiles!

Mikemc's Let's Try thread

Title: El Dorado
Engine: Rm2k
Description: I skipped the intro but basically you have to get to the jewel through a combination of thinking and guessing.


[Rm2k] Names in messages without IF/THEN conditions everywhere?

I have a minigame that picks a party member at random of say... 36 possible members. (not the # but there's alot) Is there some way of displaying a member's name in a message without having a separate Condition and Message box for every hero?

What I want:
Hello, (random member number)! I You have been chosen!

What I have:
IF # = 1, "Hello Alex!"
IF # = 2, "Hello Beatrice"

Which battle type is good for you?

Turn based or real time menu-driven? (Rm2k)
Like watching an interactive movie

Live action straight on the map? (Avalon Code, DS, although each map is a mini-arena)
You can fight or you can run - Anytime!

Live action inside a mini-arena (Eternal Sonata, X360)
A section of the world is given invisible walls - Two men enter, One man leaves!

Or how about something new. Do you even need to see the battle as long as you know the outcome?

Arrow Puzzle HELL (Using Terrain ID)

Would you believe that the only event on this map is the Starting Point? :)
