Re: Lemmasoft@5 Years: My Reflections (A short rant/essay)

I just think it's cool how well your board has done, Blue Lemma :) When you started out, most people interested in this stuff were posting at Megatokyo (which I don't blame anyone for leaving). That discussion over there sputtered and died while this board has grown--grown a lot, by the looks of it-...

Re: Idolcraft (RPG Maker XP)

Hey, PyTom! Thanks for the feedback. Just put up v1.3 which fixes a few bugs. Btw, for anyone curious what this game looks like, there are some screenshots on the first post of that rmxp.org thread which gekiganwing linked to. Endings...there are no girl-specific endings. (casual players prob'ly won...

If you can read Japanese (or get someone to do so for you) and abide by the terms of use, there's a lot of great resources in the doujin community for use in games, including both illustrated and photo backgrounds, sound effects, etc. Here's a good starting point: http://www2.ocn.ne.jp/~katokiti/non...

I've heard of such a problem occuring on machines with non-English settings. Are you running WinXP? Do you have non-unicode programs set to Japanese or some other language by chance? If so, try changing that and see if it works. (it's a regional setting in the control panel IIRC) Other than that, I ...

Besides, if you have 13 cute female friends of varying ages who don't mind posing for your in various states of undress, I'd totally do that instead.
So would I :cry:

Glasskitten: Yep, the pop stars as themselves. And that's totally how I feel too. To have one's artwork or fictional characters "borrowed", well that just wouldn't be cool at all. But an already ubiquitous celebrity? I wouldn't get my nose all bent out of shape over that. OK, think I've got it. If y...

Hmm. Well it occurred to me that the copyright issue could be skirted by actually going to one of their concerts or some other public appearance and taking pictures in person but that isn't practical. Maybe I'll junk the whole idea. However, this makes me curious. Celebrity photos (Momusu included) ...

lordcloudx: Thank you for the explanation, although I don't understand all of it. The important thing for now is to know that yes, it can be done. monele: Well, I'm glad you raise that question.

Character graphics from real pictures?

Some hypotheticals.

Let's suppose we have some photos of real people in jpg or png or whatever. Then let's suppose we want to make character graphics from these photos for use in a game. Has this been done before? Can it be done? How would one go about doing it?
