My name is LSD. I'm bad pussy!Don's Spiffy NeWz:

1. green ass 2. slimer 3. wheel-cam 4. gold robot 5. hammer car 6. magic carpet 7. alien hobo 8. hobo alien30.05.2001: Yo, dear Affiliates! I'm getting so many complains on some of my affiliates sites... So I decided to clear the list of affiliates a bit.

From now all affiliates sites must fit in the rules.

1. site must have good content relating to rpg making

2. site must not steal from other sites or take original work when artists do not want you to

3. site must be respectable and set a good example. If they use their site to hurt another site or other people in the community, you will not support it.

4. site can have original projects which help to whole RM2K community (i.e. retranslating of the CM1999 by GimpMaster & Durg)

5. or else site must be VERY INTERESTING and WELL DONE (i.e. BLW, Imbiss)

Here is the list of the BEST affiliates sites: GGZ, RPG2k NET, RPG Infinity, RPGMAKER2k.DE, RPG FAC, etc.
So... dear affiliates! Listen to me: clean out and fit your site to the rules and do your site closest to the BEST affiliates list. I'll check them at June 1. I'll remove all links to non existing sites and all rest sites which do not fit in the rules
It's pretty fairy! I'm tired of tons of complains on your sites... It's not mine fault at all. ^_^

Yo all! Did you download my own new charaset? Go and get it now 8-) Here's new don_faces2.png also. It's my original stuff.

There's second winner of RM2k TETRIS contest: SiliconHero. He sent his demo after Laughy. But SiliconHero's demo is pretty cool and original (he put all scripts to the common events).

This contest was the hardest one. It's more complex than 3D Maze contest even. But the style of coding of the winner is closest to style of the winner of our Minesweeper contest. 8-)

If you want to have RM2k with support of your native language then go to RPG2k NET and read last news!

24.05.2001: sample game... 8-)Game Maker
Did you always want to design computer games but don't you want to spend a lot of time learning to become a programmer? Then you came to the right place. Game Maker is a program that allows you to make exciting computer games without the need to write a single line of code. Using easy to learn drag-and-drop actions you can make professional looking games in little time.
Games with backgrounds, animated graphics, music and sound effects. And once you get more experienced there is a built-in programming language that gives you full flexibility.
What is best, Game Maker can be used completely free of charge. And you can use the games you produced in any way you like.

There's special GAME MAKER forum. You can do the arcade version of your RPG just for fun 8-)
You can even sell them!

Yo! I'm da man!23.05.2001: What? You did not got new English Translation of the RPG2000 Help File - By: Gemin-eye yet? Then you're not smart one. You'll learn tons of new tricks even if you're "guru"!

Here are all of my spiffy experiments:

1. I reduced size of RTPe from 12Mb down to 10Mb. I did not erase even a file! It's my new secret!

2. RM2k 1.10 Install file will be ~ 4.7 Mb (Including new HELP file 1.0 by Gemin-eye)!!!

3. I can do your native language support in the RM2k 1.10 without any patches and stuff! But then I must redo install of RTP also... So it's a pain in my eyes.

4. I did RTP2e for RM2k. It's experiment too. I added all new GFX from my site into RTP2e. It's 7 Mb now. It's like an add-on for RTPe. Do you need it?
Or I can make new multilanguage RTP-DX with all GFX files and some foreign fonts (German, Spanish, etc.. even with Chinese + Thai + Korean fonts... but I do not have any Chinese-Korean-Thai RM2000.FON files for RM2k 8-). So the install file will be 18 Mb then.

Actually... I can add multilanguage .LDB file (with all foreign VOCABS: Default strings for German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, French, etc...)

Well... I did not finish RM2k 1.10 translaton yet... it's 10% done still. 8-(

But I decided to create new forum: RM2k 1.10: Multilanguage support and some ideas

You can tell me what you want to see in English installs of RM2k 1.10 right there: RM2k: What you want to get in RM2k 1.10

5. I decided to close FM95 and RM95+ parts of my site. From now all RM95 links will lead to the new place.

You can start to bug new RM95+ master: STIFU He is preparing new site's layout of his site for new functions. 8-) He speaks French & English. He is excellent RM95+ user. So he will help you with your RM95 games and custom GFX. ^_^

I did not choose the FM95 successor yet.

Ya know that my site is pretty empty for all FM95 & RM95+ users...

22.05.2001: Download new English Translation of the RPG2000 Help File - By: Gemin-eye

Congrats!!! Laughy is the absolute winner of RM2k TETERIS contest. He did great TETRIS on RM2k. He did not the cheap Tetris clone but real Tetris with almost all of its features. It looks like the sand alone game. No offence but there's Dragoon Falcon only who else did show his true RM2k programming skills the Minesweeper contest before.

This contest was the hardest one. It's more complex than 3D Maze contest even. But the style of coding of the winner is closest to style of the winner of our Minesweeper contest. 8-)

All I can tell you that Laughy can write anything on the RM2k engine or even more. 8-)

Hey men! Study computer languages because it brings so great results.

PS If anyone else does the TETRIS... then I'll wait for June 1. Then I'll close this contest.

PPS As you can see - I do not open cheap contests. They're for Gurus only. You can show your skills to all RM2k community.

There's funny 3d FF7 FaceSet by Jonathan Brown. You will find it with all rest facesets soon.

Hey all, what's shakin' the bacon? It is I, GauntletWizard and I come bearing gifts.
These are the two EarthBound chipsets I've made, and both are, in my opinion, of excellent quality. I filled almost every little space that I could and I finally finished the improved version of the Onett (exterior) chipset. Now, I have no problem with you using these chipsets in your game. I do, however, want some recognition for them. If you use them, please use the few tiles that I put my name on, or put my name somewhere in the game where it'll be seen, like in the credits or something.

I wanna say hi to Marshmallow. Hi Marshmallow!

If you need to contact me, my e-mail address is and my AOL Instant Messenger screen name is gauntletjackal.

Yeah... his EBound's chipsets are best!

Here's original Bond's Faceset by Nick.

BTW: I'm not the uploading machine... I prefer to upload only spiffy things. 8-)


12.04.2001: Today is a great date! 40 years ago.. the First Human did fly around Earth in first time. It was Russian cosmonaut Yuriy Gagarin. See? The cosmonaut! Cosmonaut is the Russian word... some years later... Americans did reach the moon. But they used other word: astronauts.

So... first satellite was Russian (It was "SPUTNIK". They start to use another English word for "sputnik" right after launching American sputnik. That word was SATELLITE ("Satellite" is English translation of Russian word "sputnik")). First cosmonaut was Russian too. And now we have International Cosmic Station with some nations aboard. Current captain of ICS is Russian. He has 2 crew members - Americans.

It's fun... But Americans call our ICS as "Alpha" (Alpha = First). It's a politic game too... All know that Russians had some orbital stations before (you can remember the last one "Mir")

ICS station is not American & Russian orbital station only. Some other countries did some modules for it. But it's true that main modules for it was made by Russia & USA.

Modern foreign people do not know who is Gagarin. I'd read that some French kids said:
- He is not a pokemon! Cuz we know all of them!

That's pity... 8-) Your parents know well who was 1st Cosmonaut, 1st Astronaut... and you will know who will be 1st... Marsonaut 8-))) Sure!

11.04.2001: Today was hard day. I finished translation of another part of RM2k 1.09 : setup.exe.

When I tested it well... I assembled new Installshield of RM2k. I call it RM2k 1.06 Light... Becuz I removed old English help temporary. (Just wait for new version of English help)

I fixed some typos in the defaults... I replaced old buggy files by new RPG_RT.EXE and SETUP.EXE from RM2k 1.09.

If you can't wait for English translaion of RM2k 1.09 then download RM2k 1.06.

PS You can leave your old English RM2k help from RM2k 1.05.

PPS Ugly In-Game Font Bug was fixed also! You will not see tis bug again!

PPPS You need the installed RTPe still. (I will not change RTPe ever. So it fits for any version of RM2k, even Japanese!)

PPPPS Previous rm2k patch 1.09 is useless now. Rm2k 1.06 is prepatched already

Er... is it all? I dunno... I'm sleepy... ^_^

9.04.2001: You can find brand new FF9 faceset by Atlas at my FaceSets collection.

#rm2khelp room was closed. So I removed the link to the chat.

I'm testing new script which shows Russian main page for all Russian guests and the english page to others....

Well, the clock is 22:22 now and I have my English graduation exam tomorrow (writing this
game was good practice, now my English is perfect) so I won't bother writing a longer readme.
