Sunvox - great music tracker

Yesterday I found great tracker, absolutely by accident. It is great mix between classic tracker, Jeskola Buzz and eJay-likesoftware (which you can see even by looking at screenshots). The best thing about it is that is available for free for Windows, Mac and Linux - iPhone/iPad version is paid one, but even I as declared pirate know that it is worth to buy it (and there is very limited amount of software I can say that about. To that moment these was mostly Zylom games so it's mean something).The best proof of greatness of this software is that even such music-making invalid like me literally in few minutes made good sounding, maybe not song, because it's to short, but jingle without even looking to documentation or tutorials: http://www8.zippyshare.com/v/22999027/file.html. Think what can accomplish someone really gifted at music!

Please help me with animation for 8-bit styled flash game

As many of you already know I suck at animation. So I need you help. I need help with guy at end of post so he'll have following animations:

- walking
- breathing fire/acid/etc. (without actual fire or something else, I'll do it as separate actors)
- crouching
- jumping & falling
- climbing

Framecount per animation isn't limited by any technical (on my engine side) meanings, but I prefer to have 3-6 for walking for crouching 2 so player will go down smooth and for jumping, climbing & falling 3 frames/animation.

And this is guy in need of animation:

Are there any Bakugan fan games out there?

As in topic. When I typed Bakugan fan games into Google I got only links to episodes on YT, articles about DS Bakugan games (also for other consoles and no, there weren't homebrew) or sites where you can buy Bakugan-related toys. And I watched most of episodes, don't have DS or other console and don't have money for toys (and seriously, even if I had, I don't like Bakugan that much).

So I'd like to ask you if you know about any Bakugan fan-made games, preferably in RM2k(3).

Mailbox icon

Can you change it so it'll represent actual mailbox instead of envelope? It's not big deal, but mailbox!=envelope ;). If you need graphics, here I wiped graphic sheet for no messages (left) and new messages (right):

What CMS do you using

Obviously I don't mean Custom Menu System ;). I like this site CMS and I wonder if I can get hands on it, because I'd like use it on my site about classic old cars (Ford T, Syrena, Warszawa, etc.). I tried to write similar one, but my PHP knowledge isn't as big as I expected.

Moved to the Dragon World - my webcomic

I'd like to present you my webcomic called Moved to the Dragon world. It's about dragons, friendship, and... some bad English or good Engrish (in some parts, depends on point of view). I'd appreciate comments on comic site, not in this thread, because RMN forums doesn't have this nice "send me e-mail on reply" feature. But from time to time I'll check also this thread.

The comic address is: http://mtdw.smackjeeves.com

P.S.: This comic is signed by my other nick - Darkhog. I basically use it for non-RM things. This site couldn't take my RM name (Rave), so I decided to go with Rave2010 (from year of registration).

FREE alternatives to RPG Maker

Hello, I looking for free alternatives to RPG Maker which runs on Linux or are at least wine-compatible. From my research there are few programs but none of them fits my needs.

Open RPG Maker

This program probably would fit my needs, but unfortunately it seems to be dead.


Unfortunately project is in too early stage. Also it has chipset limitations similar to RPG Maker 2003 and I haven't succeed to run it under Wine (program itself ran good, but crashed at random).


Well, this is most certain NOT what I need. It seems to be DIY software, where you need to program almost everything (although it is easier than building from scratch). Therefore IKA and RPGds also are out.

Engine 001

This is good software and editor runs pretty well on Wine, but there are some troubles with engine (although not as big as with RMXP/vX engines).

RPG Toolkit

It might be good but as RT's FAQ says it is heavy directx and WinAPI dependent and also had no success to run it under wine.

Do you know any other RM alternatives which I will be able to use under Linux? It need to be as easy as RM (but may differ - basically I want point&click tool, because I am not a programmer) and have native Linux port or at least be in very good relations with Wine. Currently I am forced to use RM2003, because newer versions of RM are both laggy and don't run too well with Wine. And 2k3 is very limited for me, especially if it comes to graphics.
