Check it out. Post some things. Comment on things.

Bugs? Feedback? Problems? Praise? Feel free to post it here.

Some things we need to work out:

1. Where is the image gallery strip going to go?
2. What topic tags do we want for Scripts?
3. What topic tags do we want for Music?
4. What topic tags are missing from Graphics?

It looks like the download section and the forums had a love-child. Interesting idea. I don't think I've seen this one done before. So the poster has to select certain tags for it to categorize stuff? Are you going to sort out the other things or are you just giving it a test run before you give yourself a headache switching things around? What about for dumbasses that don't select tags?

As for topic tags for music... I'd say midi, mp3, wav... formats perhaps? That's the only think I can think of. For scripts I'd say XP, VX, Universal... what makers they're made for. Then things like Battle, Menu, Message, Script bits, Graphical, etc... things like that based upon functions. You're missing facesets and battlers for graphical. What's "standalone" in the tiles? I'd kinda consider "fogs" background stuffs. You're also missing "battle transitions" unless that's under battle panormas... but yeah. Looks good.

Editing topic attributes doesn't work.

Nobody's used it but spooky yet - nothing to post or is it confusing?

Any thoughts, comments, etc? Requests?

Problem to fix: editing in tags doesn't work.

Yeah the poster selects any one of those tags and it sorts it.

Just testing for now although people are free to submit stuff.

Banned. Heh, or maybe we can make it force you to select one.

Thanks, missed those, they're pretty major categories.

Quote:

Standalone: tilesets that can be used in their own right without adding things.
Addon: tiles designed to be added to other tilesets to compliment them.

I'd put them both in overlays because they go above the map and affect it in the same way (the black/white scaling thingie).

Hmm.

Things to do:

- Fix it so we can edit attributes
- Get rid of the announcements at the top of the board for resources
- Change how the subforums are shown, they take up too much room and are moot with the new header

Well I'd use it but I have a very small selection of resources that I've made for in general purposes... I'm usually working on things specific to myself which look a bit different than the generic. What I could do is if you delete out my old post from edits and rips I can try it out here by reposting the stuff as soon as you get a faceset category up. (Or I could just repost a duplicate?) I'd have two topics then because I have map add-ons as well as faces. Some of the way you posted your stuff IS confusing to me because it looked like it could be clumped together... but yeah I actually want to try it out.

I plan on using it to look for resources, since I have no ounce of pixel ability in me - I can't contribute. I bet Star has some nice edits for snow-y situations though. I'll get on his butt about it. :D

Every time I check back to hbgames, the resource managers changed :P
I guess this seems more stable than some of the others and integrating it into the forum is a good idea, so it will eventually replace the current resource forums (umm which went where exactly...?). I don't use RTP sets or the like for much anymore but, as I know thats what will eventually fill it, it'll be useful for beginners and those looking for RTP to be able to find them in an organized place.
I would put up my RTP sets and stuff from a while ago, but it was so long ago I have no idea where they are.

A resource gallery now shows on the portal homepage:

http://www.hbgames.org/

We can put this anywhere; any ideas?

I would recommend the forums section, on the "my posts" and "new posts" sections. Those seem to be seen by alot more people than the homepage.


Done. The resource gallery now shows on "new posts".

search.php?search_id=newposts

Yeah sorry about that. Much of it has been experimenting up to the realisation that we're, before anything else, a forum, and that we should play to our strengths. Although I thought the res manager was pretty final until we lost it in a hack.

For "New Posts", I would reverse the order (right now the newest images are on the right, but they'd be less confusing on the left).

Otherwise, the tag search system is looking great! (Only complaint is with the search system, not the resources: could you make the box of forums to pick larger, since there are so many forums?)

Hmm. I can't work out why editing attributes isn't working, but it's something we obviously need badly due to moving threads and people not setting one when posting. I'll try and work it out and will ask phpbb.com for support if I can't find the cause. I think it should work, I don't know why it doesn't.

I need to edit my code to try and order them; I assumed it would put them in date order to begin with but was wrong. Not sure how but I'll find out!

When submitting sprites, do you create topics based on a complete collection for myself, or do I just create topics for the sprites by their genre (medieval, modern, fan game, monster, etc)?

May I make a suggestion? For resources created by one person, instead of doing a million separate topics can we just compile everything in the same category in one post? For example Amy you have a bunch of topics I noticed that could just be under the same tileset idea but instead you posted them separately which is kinda confusing to me... While you may not be able to preview as much of the stuff it makes life easier not to have to click a million posts just to see what's inside especially when it consists of similar stuff.

It's all about access mainly. Given it's a resources forum, it's counter productive to have huge workshops you have to search through to get what you want.

But it's fine for things to be in the same topic (characters, etc) so long as they're tagged nicely to make them easier to search for.

The resource bar thing that appears on home and new posts has stopped working.
