You thought .org's Winter Contest was cool? Check this.
« on: January 26, 2009, 07:47:12 PM »
I always thought foreign RMXP projects were the best.  Take a look at this screenshot I found while surfin' the net.
Screenshot
Yes, gawk over the amazing FX. D:  There's a link on that page for the project thread too.
I recently discovered that I was capable of sending coins to myself, and exploiting this is surprisingly entertaining.

That's pretty cool, the blurry-ish effect actually works here since it has a warm feel. I'm very curious as to see how that screenshot works in motion though - do the skates leave active trails?

P.S. That guy behind the bar at the left upper corner caught me off-guard. :P

:x I didn't notice until you pointed that out.
I'm probably going to play this later and see if it's really as good as that screenshot suggests.

I've seen some very talented artworks coming from the Europe RM communities, it's pretty impressive. Sadly I don't speak the languages to get into them. :<

And that's why they have Google Translate, even if that means the occasional case of "my grammar are real goods". :p

I meant like actually playing through the games. Would be a huge hassle to manually translate each line.

Hehe, itís a German game/screen. :]
I havenít played it so far, but itís a picture of the month and looks very nice. :]

I also like this screen, although itís not teh final version, I suppose: http://img3.imagebanana.com/img/byh90bzo/ATFinal.png
Too bad that this is the mapís createrís tileset only. No public version now. :'(


Edit: This one is also nice: http://img3.imagebanana.com/view/va1jmtzz/ATGebirgsende.jpg

The western world is starting to feel very inferior.  ._.

That third one's actually just a typical snow RTP map with some extremely heavy foggage (that coming from me means it's really, really heavy :P ) on top. My favourite's the first one, or the second. . . Hard to compare since they're different types. :P

Actually, the most awesome (screenshot-wise) German game I've seen is this:
http://www.rpgmaker.net/forums/index.php?topic=2792.0
But apparently it caused some argument and that it didn't look like that in-game or something. The thread later got locked. I think the arguments started from the end of first page, and had some Europe vs. West thing going, hm.
