Games sequels, stay the same or go different? why and how?

Well I always have the fight with my brother that zelda and mario are the same all the time (in pokemon we agree is the same), me being on the side that they are alike but they have their difference that make them different but he clasify this games in the same shelf of pokemon, less exagerated but still the same shelf.

And that final fantasy is the opposite, but I tell him FF isn't getting any better with the new games, and he did agree. On the other hand we do have cool spin offs of games in the past that have been well received like... metal gear, resident evil 4? I haven't play any game in 5 months and when I did it was the first monkey island, so I don't have many clear examples of new games but I know you could find some.

So should games stay with the core element that made them great or try for discovering new methods. why and how?

Installing fonts is acceptable?

Well, making my game and wanted to add a font, but if others want to play the game, they would have to install the font, if I add it to the download file and they install it would be the solution, I don't know how people feel about this.

How much can you express on sprites?

Well, I am currently planning a big project, but as big project, it means that if I choose wrong I might end quiting. The project is only storytelling completely linear, no gameplay, but it has a lot of character. So the project is still on ideas and story planning. So I am choosing whether I buy VX Ace, or Use renpy.

What renpy gives me, is a pretty simple and organized way to write dialogues and display everything, but, as it is an engine for -Visual- Novels, it mostly demands it to look good (yes, I know, there is Higurashi and Umineko, which I consider great VN). But with the huge cast it will be impossible for one person to make all the expressions, clothes, and stuff in a decent quality. What I would achieve is more or less the quality of a faceset of an rpgmaker game which are static faces. with different expressions. So the the things that renpy offers me wouldn't be used too much due the huge amount of work.

So, I was thinking to change to VX Ace for this project, and get rid of all the facesets, and let the sprites do the job, but because of it being a linear I really want the sprites to express in a realistic way, so how much do the sprites can express themselves? and how much will change having to do a cast of around 80 characters drawings to sprites?

A kind of rage quit

Not so important: Have to add that this change will also help me with tilesets instead of backgrounds, instead of having to draw each background and coloring the tilesets can save me a lot of time.

Dither Effect on photoshop CS2?

I have a picture that use greyscale but I want it to only use white and black with the effect of dithering.

for example:

How do I do this on Photoshop CS2?

RMN Anime

I have no idea how this is going to result but... anyway, the point is to give your opinion of shows (anime obviously) that you have liked (or hate) so others can compared others points of view with theirs, or choose a new anime to watch, so pretty much an overall opinion of RMN on the shows we have watched.

This is for opinions it is NOT for:
Posting a lot of "funny pictures" about the anime you love.
Telling others they suck for their taste in anime (anime can be bad, not the person)

I hope they are enough so just use your common sense so we don't have to add new "rules"

Passage on VX ace tilesets is a mess , how to fix this?

Forget it, problem solved.

Reviewing Thruths

Well, for people that know me may know I am not a gamer, if you give me an rpg I will drop it in 2-6 hours or most of games I have played recently, but I think this blog I found can be applied to games and any other kind of media. This article was written by roricon, an anime lover who has watched more than 1000 anime series and is well known in communities since he gives a lot of low rated reviews, causing a lot of controversy with blind fans who make rants because they disagree with him and getting him banned a number of times. And so far the first source I look when I want to read a review since they are best I have found.

Here, don't be afraid.

RMN Christmas Pixel Quilt 2012

Christmas is coming!
And so another Pixel Quilt.

Rules are simple and Ocean couldn't had explain it better.


Rules are simple. Add onto the picture 'quilt' by pixelling on one of the panels. If we run out of room, just expand the canvas size! Just make sure it fits the quilt dimensions.

Change of rules There is no order, you can post your work, anytime, if you want to wait someone and tell him you are waiting for him, is also valid. Be attentive and carefull to see what others have done since most of the time I won't be able to help you to keep up the progress in the first page.. just make sure you have it flow and match the border and colors of the images around yours.

Note- It's for fun, so feel free to try it out even if you don't think you are a good at pixel art!

Here is the last one.

Let's start this.

Chears Music

Well, I got Fruity Loops and it's really and improvement compared with guitar pro. As well as it is better it is a chance to learn more. I have been playing piano for over 10 years (with professor for 3 years so I am not so good as you can suppose reading the numbers.) And I know how to create fragments and how to improvise.

I have already participated on other RMN events just for fun, but thruth is that I got a lot of problems composing a complete and consistent song and more when is about combining more than just piano.

So if you can give me advice of how can I improve, I would appreciate it.


I don't know yet how to manage many aspects of fruity loops so I start doing what I know (a piano song).

I like the first two fragments but when it get's to the third it becomes more flat and less consistency, also will it be a good idea too add another instrument?

Quiet Sea 1

Good ways to start with Fruity Loops Studio?

Well, I start yesterday with this program, I had have some troubles since I am just starting and I don't get to much the interface. Either way, I am more interesting on creting not so much of electronical music, I don't know how confortable is to do this but I really like the music instruments compared to the instruments on guitar pro and finale notepad.

So can anyone help me, links of great tutorials, advice?
