Want to Help?
« on: April 15, 2011, 01:03:27 AM »
Do you want to make character sprites for the ARC RTP? Do you want your graphics to be seen, admired, and used by countless new aspiring game creators (without having to make a resource topic)? Or do you just want to help get this awesome engine ready as fast as possible? If any of these are true, this is the right topic for you! But before you start helping, there are a few things you need to know!


What you'll need to sprite character sets

  • A Drop Box account (get one here) so you can access the working RTP folders (after getting a dropbox, get access here)
  • A proper template (find them here)
  • Choose a sprite from one of the described ones here (PM me or Niche to inform us of your choice)
  • Read these tutorials on how to sprite in the ARC RTP style (*coming soon*)

Naming Conventions

All sprites are named in a similar fashion to the RMXP default RTP (001-fighter01, 002-fighter02, etc.). The basic template for names is as follows:

Code: [Select]
<listNumber>-<className><classNumber>.png
(get the exact list number in the ARC RTP, as we already have placeholder sprites for each sprite).

For each of the class sprites (Fighter, Knight, Barbarian, Hunter, Rouge, Mage, Cleric, Alchemist, and Monk), the gender is up to you. The fifth of any class (the fifth fighter, fifth hunter, etc.) should look evil or "dark" so as to add veriety

For each of the non-class sprites (Civilian, Scholar, etc), the first half of the sprites will be male, the second female. For example. Civilian sprites 1-5 should be male, while civilian sprites 5-10 should be female. The first DarkLord sprite should be male, the second DarkLord should be female.

Do you need a composer to provide a standard music package?
If you do:

I do the kind of music you could need. I've actually already started this kind of thing.

Just throwing the old "Bump" out there on this forgotten topic...
I am done scripting for RMXP. I will likely not offer support for even my own scripts anymore, but feel free to ask on the forum, there are plenty of other talented scripters that can help you.

I don't understand the dropbox. So here.


Treeeeeeeeez. Shadows need to be added to some or redone entirely. You can edit the colors if needed.

I also have some auto tiles for a grass land I made you can use as well.


You can easily get the reg grass/dirt/etc tile from these as well.


I'll see what else I can toss your guys way, even if just one tile. :P

Shame you guys didn't want to use my charset I also did for my game. ^^;

If you accepted the link in the email, just click it, choose to download and install.  If you registered already, choose "I already have an account", else make a new one.  Once you got that, a folder will be made (in Documents by default), and within that will be a folder called "RTP".  Just stick the files into the Graphics folder and your done. ;)

Still not sure about this drop box thing, but I moved the files in, not sure how to upload them or will that just move on it's own?

I think it would be really awesome if I could help! I'm best with human character sprite (for the map), I can easily do recolors if any are needed since I have paint.net, and if I can get my avatar up you can see how good I am with adding special effects to images :D

I've already submited lots of graphical peices I've made to the Anatomia Community Character Generator on OmegaDev. I have the same user name so if you want I can either post some examples here or you can search for them!

I'm anxious to help!
I made a signature!
