Free Japanese BG links (was:Holy Backgrounds (and more)...)

#1 Post by Giovedi » Mon Sep 17, 2012 4:43 am

'Sup guys, Gio here. I recently went on a Googling spree for free/credit please backgrounds, and here's what I've unearthed. Hope someone finds these useful!
Here's a directory of resources; p. quality music sites towards the bottom there... And another directory... Knock yourselves out, pals 'n' gals. I'll update this list as I find more resources!

Nice find. There are some amazing backgrounds there. I think I recognise a few from Ren'Py games.
"We must teach them through the tools with which they are comfortable."
The #renpy IRC channel is a great place to chat with other devs. Due to the nature of IRC and timezone differences, people probably won't reply right away.

If you'd like to view or use any code from my VN PM me. All code is freely available without restriction, but also without warranty or (much) support.

Thanks! Pretty sweet, amirite? If you or anyone else have a site to contribute, do post here. It'd be cool to have a comprehensive list of BG resources.

You'll have to dig through the posts to find what you're looking for though, but there's quality there.
Edit: Also the stuff by BCS is pretty nice too
More edit: And whoop de doo there's even more?!

Since I've been looking through some of the terms of use for these bg resources, I thought I'd share my findings.

I wonder is it wrong to put this here..
Since you said this page for BGs, and then the music are in it.
So i think you said Japan content, then why don't included some from West too xP.

But seriously, ever heard of this one ?

Problem is... Kevin MacLeod is a very widely used source of Music here in the OELVN making scene...too many released OELVN's, Youtube Videos and other projects already use the very same set of music from him... I myself used his music several times already... so you'll end up with this strange yet uncomfortable feeling of deja-vu when you recognize a particular music in the current OELVN you are playing was also used in another unrelated project... lika a Youtube Video on Planking or a Documentary Video about Urban Exploring Storm Drains or countless others... :mrgreen:

One of these evenings, suddenly I thought: "What? Is someone playing Ren'Py tutorial game?"
No. It was just an ad for a car rental agency, playing on the radio (featuring "Happy Alley").
