Thanks guys! :'> And Vikon isn't a protagonist, Carson; he's a supporting character. :p Ouch about the laptop. My old desktop was crappy as well, I'm so glad that I got my new laptop now.

Sleeper hit doesn't mean something that puts you to sleep, legacy. :p It basically means that a project that has been kept from exposure (a.k.a. asleep) and then suddenly released with success. I'm guessing that it's referring to the release of Quintessence on www.rmxp.org in May.

@legacyblade: I live in Australia so it's summer holidays at the moment...

But that's so off topic

@Carson: Vikon isn't a protaganist, he's a supporting character

@Carson...ouch. I'm getting a laptop, but it will have two dual core processors, 2 gigs of ram, Gforce graphics card, and other nice stuff (what can I say, my dad is rich. He owns two tax preparation companies  ;D )

@Reives, Oh...I didn't know that! lol, I'm continually reminded of my n00bishness...I just got RMXP this summer, and I got inet a few months before that  :P

@menti, I wish it was summer here :-[

@LG, My dad is a tax consultant, not any boss. And that is why he fails.

@Reivier & Menti, To me, Vikon is the most important character of Quintessence. ;D

The only act of betrayal he will ever do is to backstab Carson.

Nothing happens. Just some bragging rights I suppose. But chances are that it won't win, partially because the voting population is largely composed of people from communities that I have not exposed it to.

And James, I earned less than $0 myself. :p And you earned reputation. I can now fetch people who are willing to pay you for commissions (which I did), who knew you through Quintessence's soundtrack. It is also something you can show for resume and etc., as well as bragging rights. :p And guess what, now you can say that you are the primary composer of a game who was nominated for the best soundtrack in ___.

Vikon is more of a supporting character right now, Carson.  Not really a protagonist, even though I agree in that he brings the most humour to this game.  He is really a character to appreciate.

Now, I did not get to vote yesterday.  Sorry.  And I didn't know about the two-nominations rule.  I'll see and make sure those entries I find worthy of it, pass to the voting stage.

Reason why I didn't vote for graphics is simple: they are free resources.  Great edits and excellent job at implementing them, though.  And some of the best mapping I've seen.  So if they had an award for "Best use of graphical elements", I would nominate dear Q: TBV.

I also want Lunair to win an award for best female protagonist.  I know that some people don't like her for being, well...  Too serious and a little selfish.  But she has her reasons; reasons that I understand.  And I know she'll turn out to be a great character in the end.  :)  She just needs to "evolve".

the mapping in this is not really that excellent I think. don't get me wrong, it's certainly decent, but nothing overly exceptional. though the ones I see in the forecast future chapters threads seem to have big improvements from the current ones. I think the biggest pro with the graphics is the way it was used for the cut scenes and atmosphere.

and I dunno, I like lunair better than vikon.
