Hello,

As of July 22nd, 2008, we now have a resource site.  :fogetsmile:

You can access it here: http://www.gamingw.net/resources/

Uploaded resources will have to be approved by a staff member, so make sure when you upload your resources that you make sure that you choose the correct engine, category, credit them, set the correct tags, and choose the correct category. Several examples have been uploaded already, if you need examples of tag usage, and such.

A strong search function will let you find the resources you are looking for!

The resource site uses a Dapp system, which is basically a rating. Feel free to click on a resource and rate it if you really like it - or if you think it blows!

Enjoy. (If you have any questions, comments, etc, feel free to place them here.)

Thanks to Leafo and GZ for doing this, good work guys.

This looks great! This should really drive a lot more traffic to GW.

Awesome job guys!  All that's left now is to get the mainpage spiffed up and sporty.

<Drule> some guy on the street taught me
<Drule> come to think of it
<Drule> it was pretty gross how I played on his didgeridoo

Sounds and music were discussed, but I think we're going to wait til GW6 for that. Graphics don't take up much space but if quite a few people uploaded music it could really eat up the space fairly quickly, and I'm not sure we have the resources for that atm(?). You'd have to ask leafo or gz for a real explanation, I'm just going off of what I know (admittedly, only what I see.)

You could limit music to midi files only for now. But yeah, I see your point.

there are talks of a music deal but nothing is concrete right now. space is a factor and so is making a decent browser for it. there is not much to say other than it is really early stages and there has been very little discussion on it.

Very nice!
Uploaded a bunch of ripped graphics I did from FF 1 & 2: Dawn of Souls. Going to add chipsets too as soon as I cleaned them up a little.

Question for Leafo and whoever else: would you guys be cool if I made an announcement for this at RMXP.org? Our members have been bitching a lot lately that our own resource site is taking forever (which it is), and they'd probably get a lot of use out of it. And you guys would probably get a good number of new members from it as well.

I see no problems with that, sure

It would honestly me take me days to upload everything I want to upload here.

I would litterly become a resource staff. I'll get around to doing something when I'm not lazy.

The dapp system is a bit bugged, you can keep voting over and over again

It replaces your old vote, so you can't really.

Some things about CUSTOM ressources:
I dont like the CUSTOM keyword, it sounds like rm2k lingo for "EDITS OF RIPPED SPRITES" How about adding an "original" keyword?
Also maybe something about the author? Like, you cant really guess that DE is the author's name in the keywords for DE's sprites.
