Solarus is wayyyyy better that RPG Maker. Not only because it's free, but because it is educational, has no real limitations, amazing support in complex areas, and has a great community that doesn't try to kill you for posting in the wrong section.  :D

People think RPG maker ACE is easier, but the code in RPG Maker isn't even close to being as easy as Solarus or as fast. People just don't like typing code and think it is harder for that very reason. I have already done everything in ACE and Customizing isn't easy. Repetitions sprains with all that clicking too. I just want nice soft typing of beautiful code.

I went off topic, but it had to be said.

I believe that Solarus should be getting more support than it's currently getting. Hopefully, the open source book, resources package, etc will help bring more people in.

I am also thinking about competitions related to the book or unrelated. Maybe Christopho could come up with an easy prize.

The book can be changed or set up in any way. Feel free to copy and paste it. It will most definitely be going through crazy changes. Today Chapter 1 was combined with chapter 2 because chapter 1 is too short.

I have made a book cover for you for the link you have givin:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/16Zynv0ScGCRAcOkUxpCFuahAoC_ziiQRtuS1F4BoYlw/edit?usp=sharing

It's an jpg image of 300dpi into a zip file that weight near 2.09mb and unzipped near 2.38mb. The image is very big, so you can reduce the size. I know it have no virus, but as always i encourage to antivirus check the file.

I wonder what you think about the look? If other peoples see the link to the file, i also wonder what they think about the look? Here is the link:

The cover looks beautiful, but there might be a slight error. It says "none" commercial use. Did you mean Non-Commercial use?

I have created an other image that is also big but is writen "Non-Commercial". I have difficulties with my english as my french, thank's for correcting my self. The zipped size is near 2.42mb this because it is more bigger, its not 2020px height as the previous file. I have put it 2465px height (keeping the proportions and the dpi) so it's normal the weight is bigger. But as always i encourage peoples to antivirus scan the file.

As you notice there is some space to put some text, higher and below; of the big text Solarus. Example: First Book or Volume One, etc.

Here is the link:

I will add it sometime soon. Also, French is a tough language due to gender endings and your English is better than most native speakers. The same goes for Christopho. I prefer Japanese and Chinese mandarin because they are easier for me to learn and speak.

Well my native language is french (français), but i'm better in english because they have less grammatical things. In english it have: (I, You, He/She, We, They) but in french: (Je, Tu, Il/Elle, Nous, Vous, Ils/Elles). Just that it already have more things. There is so many things in french. Also that a language know around the world is "English" this because it is called the "Money Language". Company's and peoples exchanging and discussing, do it trough the language "English" so it's an important language to learn. I dont know all words, but i have a real good basic, enough to exchange informations as to write here.

Id like one day to learn chinese mandarin. I think "Thank you" in chinese is: "Che-che" or maybe "Aligato" or "Kamsamida"? I Think also that saying "Hello" in cambodgian-vietnamen is "Sussday"? But not sure. I know a little bit but very not much in spanish like "Good Morning" is "Buenos Dias", in italian i think it is "Bonjourno", in german-allemang i think it is "Gutten Tag". I think also that in arabe saying "Thank You" is "Shoukran". There is so many languages.

I know a little bit also the "Hand-Sign Language" for peoples that can not speak. Like if some speachless person "with there finger (french: le majeur) between the fingers called (the index and anuaire "french") tapping with there tip of there "finger" on the tip of there nose, mean that the person is going to the toilet or want to go to the toilet. I'm not sure if it is other things, tapping the tip of there nose with this finger in other province or country; but i think this is universal for speachless person. So if you see it in a restaurant, you'll know that the person want to go to the toilet.

Well i dont want to talk too much on the language subject, because this post is about: the book that id like to create to help peoples. Who know maybe one day you can teach me some words of the language(s) you know?

I have many things to learn about Solarus to create free pdf guides, this because i am a beginner with it. But with time and your help i know that i can create a wonderfull guide about Solarus. I'll have many questions that i call "How to do this".

Ive created till today 6 free pdf guides oriented to a software called Futurepinball. The comments of my guides from peoples all around the world say that they are fantastics, well made; and mostly easy to learn. Those guides talk about POO wich is "programming oriented object". If you want to check them here are the links:

My first book explain the Futurepinball software some basics:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60m6W-FuLPHZXAyZGxRRmRXNm8/view?usp=sharing

My 2nd book explain some component of the software, and explain basic things about programming oriented object:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60m6W-FuLPHcFlkNmxUWWxmZUE/view?usp=sharing

My 3rd book explain how to create your own DMD animations still oriented to Futurepinball
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60m6W-FuLPHZ0VRWHFLTThTUFk/view?usp=sharing

My 4th book talk about a soft called Softimage XSI Mod Tool v6.01, the soft FPMeditor and fiew about Blender soft. Ton the president of Blender have been nice to me saying that i can do some printscreens of the soft:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60m6W-FuLPHdnRqRGU4MnVmY0k/view?usp=sharing

My 5th book explain doing things about modeling, since Futurepinball you can import 3d models into
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60m6W-FuLPHc0diOFpfaGlQYnM/view?usp=sharing

My 6th book explain mostly the software Milkshape3D, Mete is also a person that have givin me the authorizations to do printscreens of the software to explain fiew things about creating some 3D models with Milkshape3D:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60m6W-FuLPHOUlLYXFVMGRlX1k/view?usp=sharing

It's important for my self to say and give my thank's to Christopho for accepting and giving me the authorizations that i do some printscreens, so i can do some guide about Solarus. But i'll need a lot of help of you guys. If you look at my free online pdf guide that can be also downloadable, it should give peoples here an idea of the pdf guides id like to create to help peoples know this great software that is called Solarus.

Ive writen also to Nintendo, to ask if i can put some Nintendo Images like the sprites, tiles of the pack Zelda a Link to the Past. Here is there responding to me (in french), ive asked because i respect copyrights and respect the authors:

Nous sommes reconnaissants pour toutes les demandes d’autorisation pour
l’utilisation des propriétés de Nintendo; toutefois, nous recevons des
milliers de telles demandes et nous n’avons pas suffisamment d’employés
pour toutes les lires. Donc, notre politique générale est de refuser toutes
les demandes, sans exception. Nous nous rendons comptes que cela n’est pas
ce que vous voulez entendre et nous vous remercions pour votre compréhension.

Même si nous ne pouvons pas accorder l’autorisation, l’utilisation des
propriétés de Nintendo sans l’autorisation formelle de Nintendo pourrait
quand même être permise dépendant des circonstances. Nous vous encourageons
à chercher votre propre conseil légal pour savoir si l’utilisation que vous
proposez est permise sans l’autorisation de Nintendo. Ceci n’est pas un
commentaire sur notre croyance ou non que votre utilisation proposée en
particulier soit acceptable – Nintendo ne peut pas donner de conseils légaux.

This mean that even if Nintendo would not give some formel acceptations and refuse all request, that Nintendo could still make permissible to do so; depending of the circonstances. But can not give some legal suggestions and to ask some person that could.

As i say i'll need some help, because my guides is mostly oriented to some basics but mostly one basic question wich is: "How to do this".

Like:
How to make some intro animated image as Solarus intro.
How to make some story intro as Zelda Solarus DX
How to import some tiles, How to import some sprite.
etc, etc, etc.

There is so many (How to do this) that peoples here would like to know with the version 1.5 of Solarus. I'm sure that peoples that have started with Solarus, asked to them self "How to do this" with Solarus. I'd like peoples of experiences with Solarus, that i can ask a lot of questions. The comments of my ways of writing is known to be easy to understand and have many details.

Thank's for your time and responding.

A+

You are allowed to use Nintendo graphics under Japanese fair use law.
http://omonomono.com/2014/08/13/japanese-law-and-fair-use-comon/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_Japan#Educational_use

Besides that there has been much free graphics made by Diarandor.

Diarandor's Audio and Pixel art:
Updates Here and his work is in the sample quest in Solarus Engine!

Sample Quest:
The Children of Solarus project has some free graphics too.

Fairyolica World Graphics:
There is the Fariyolica world Graphics you can use. It is full of opensource art found on legit sites. I have not had time to continue the project. My hobby time has been almost zero.
Part1: Fairyolica World Outside/exterior Finished

Solarus help Project:
You can refer to the Solarus help Guide because it might help you out.

Actually, most of my art is not yet in the Children of Solarus project, but in the sample quest and my deviantart website.
