Wonderful question, anon! It is possible to contribute wallpaper to 2kki. In fact, someone from the Yume 2kki wiki was not only able to get their wallpaper design recently added to the game, but entire maps, too! (It's noildoof, whose stuff is being collected and released by shigurin.) I'm not clear as to exactly how they managed to get in contact with the game staff, but I do know the specific requirements for wallpapers:
- Do not submit anything you didn't make yourself
- There should be nothing in the work that strongly resembles any existing characters from other well-known series
- The content must be suitable for all ages; do not submit anything that would qualify as 18+ material
- The work cannot contain anything overly political, religious, or grotesque
- Don't submit work you know would make others uncomfortable.
All submissions must fit the constraints of RPGMaker 2000. Therefore, images need to be 256 colors (8-bit), with a size ratio of 4:3, which allows the image to be resized to 320 x 240 px without distortion. Images need to be in .png format as well.
I suggest contacting noildoof directly for details, since they're the one with firsthand experience on the matter. They can be reached on the Yume 2kki wiki (Fokkusu1991).
Anyone else feel like there are too many areas and not enough events?
ME! ME! There are a lot of gorgeous areas in this game but those huge areas usually don't have any events. Or any other recognition at all. I mean there are a lot of plain areas with tons of unlockable wallpapers and Kura Puzzle's while some of really good areas don't have any unlockable content or events. That's a shame.
Are you Artoax, by any chance?
What would be the purpose of this effect? Where would it be located? How would various NPCs react?
The character set is somewhat ready (there is no action/attack animation), but there are much more to be done…
Nope. I'm not.
Also, I was going to ask if there is any specific location you, anon, want wallpaper to. I love so many locations that I don't even know which I'd like choose. Any suggestions?picrelated is not mine
If I were to suggest a wallpaper for a specific world, I'd say that the Lotus Waters would be a good choice.
I agree with you anon. It has those pretty pastel colors and soft atmosphere.
>>13699>btw this reminds me of wataru a little. don't know why
It's almost like the artist reuses Wataru's assets or something. Oh wait.
Is he really?.. Is this even legal?
Uhh, yes and no, as it turns out. Some small things like doors and bubble animations are reused, but neon signs, which I thought were reused at first, are original and only look reused.
It's not illegal as far as I know, it's just kinda..lame is all. Like, I get that Wataru's style is cool and popular, but don't you wanna do something more creative than just replicate it? Don't you have your own artistic vision to express?
Well, than it's not that bad isn't it? New maps have completely different overall theme and atmosphere compared to wataru's anyway. Yes, maybe they have slightly similar artstyle, but… What do you mean about "not having artistic vision" just because those new maps used door and bubble sprites. "Door assets" don't have anything to do with atmosphere vision, aren't they?
I think you're overreacting here a bit.
>>13765>I think you're overreacting here a bit.
Well, it's my personal impression of it one way or another. Doesn't help that the author wasted no time in adding another Uboa knockoff and another Takofuusen knockoff. Like that isn't done to death already.
These things are everywhere. Urosuki loves soda.
Man, Yume 2kki updates so often, I wish there was a way to automatically update the game.
made another fan remix of a 2kki song, this time of the snowy pipe organ:https://soundcloud.com/saiiko2/snowy-pipes
i take a peek until i find one that fits my mood
or go for a specific one to investigate something i passed earlier
Ａｌｗａｙｓ ｔｈｅ ｈｅａｄｓｔｏｎｅ， ｙｏ．
Anyone else see the new title screen they added in the recent versions? I kinda prefer the old one, the colors fit 2kki a bit more.
The new title sucks.
There's this air that they're entering a new era of 2kki and that things are being kept fresh since they changed the title and all, which I think is pretty cool. I feel like we'll look back at it and go "hey, remember the pre-new title days of 2kki?" if more things get changed and a bunch more gets added. I heard a western map maker got his maps in for the first time or something too, which is really cool; the maps look great as well and I'm looking forward to exploring them.
I just haven't updated yet.
I found some interesting things.https://mega.nz/#!8I5lmRDa!EpCkvONWYmegACNZeHZjTHLvmYdVQkEHbqjoTjjuVg0
This is a Yume 2kki archive with a lot of old versions in it, supposedly. I haven't checked it myself to see what versions it has but it seems like it's worth getting if you want to hold onto some of the versions.https://u6.getuploader.com/yumenikkig/download/44/yume2kki_Ver.0.034~36.rar
And here's some really early 2kki stuff for those who are interested in that. Have fun.
2kki's title has never been 'set in stone' per se, so it could always be changed in the future. I admit, I don't really like it much either, but you can easily just go in and swap the titles out in the files, can't you?
The new screen seems to be trying to keep up with the other fangames having bits of their protagonists in them, like .flow having Sabi's lower body, Yume Nisshi having Uso's silhouette, LCDDEM having Chie's skull plate, and even the original Yume Nikki having Mado's penis in it.
Can anyone post the title? I don't feel like downloading 200mb just to check that.
I hope they revert it, it looks like an odd palette to use.
Eh, honestly it's just bad compared to the old one. It feels… "amateurish"? Like it was made in 10 seconds or so without much thought put into it. The old one, while simple, at least had charm.
-2 looks the best to me, but they're all gorgeous.
I really like how 6.png looks, but >>13942
They all look fantastic.
So… Can someone explain to me what exactly was the whole thing with this "Artoax" kid?
I know that I am very late into this topic but, I just got curious.
Autistic kid pretending to be koronba and later trying to join 2kki's dev team without even knowing how to speak japanese. Nothing important really, let him die.
Is this issue present on new games as well?
Play it on a VM with WinXP.
Like, seriously, unless your PC is just that much of a toaster, it should be way easier than trying to ﬁnd the way around all the kinks of the game.
What version is this? I just updated to 108c and it's still the old menu.
The title screen change was reverted almost instantly.
