Game art & music / Re: Tileset for a world map
« Last post by Dianthus on October 01, 2020, 10:45:31 PM »
By saying tilesets, what you mean? You mean new tiles right?  ??? Like custom tiles of grass, walls, dirt, water and trees right? That have been done alot of times, but most of what is used in solarus games are original zelda tiles from zelda a link to the past and minish cap.

Max made ocean heart which is all custom tiles and I make custom tiles too in paint.net that i draw myself. Like these:



Lots of games on solarus have custom tiles. If you want you can get into pixel art yourself, there are lots of good guides on youtube. I prefer to draw in paint.net, but lots use gimp for drawing.

Game art & music / Tileset for a world map
« Last post by Delenir on October 01, 2020, 05:42:40 PM »
Hey everyone, long time fan, first time poster...

I was wondering if there has ever been a tileset or resource set to make a world map in Solarus? (In the sense of what you see in other RPGs like Final Fantasy on SNES for example, not talking about the overworld in Zelda games.) Or even if anyone has attempted such a thing by adding in some custom tiles?

If you have read this, thank you in advance, and keep on creating! :)

For sound, I do everything by combining and editing samples, some I record myself, most are from freesound.org , you can search and filter by license. I've never had much trouble finding what I need with a CC0 license.
Also, listen to podcasts and youtube videos about foley. I recommend Twenty Thousand Hertz, episodes 12, 51, and 67. Maybe 27 and 30 depending what you're doing. Look up youtube videos for like, "how did they make the ___ sound".

Tools are useful, I just use audacity for sound effects because it's lightweight and does what I need, but they're not nearly as important as creativity and knowing how to make the sound you want. Which, all of that just comes from studying how others made sounds. For example, the enemy getting hit sound effect in one of my games is a stack of canvas being punched layered a few times, some vegetables being broken, and the sound of some wet, rotten meat being dropped on a cutting board that I happened across. That's a pretty classic combo for people/things being hit. Then sometimes you get a weird tip from a podcast or youtube video or friend, which is how I found out pigs scream, and that's the basis for most of the monster noises in Ocean's Heart, mixed with my dog growling.
Then all the processing of slowing down, or pitch shifting, or adding some synth bass behind it to make it really hit hard, etc.


Music is way more commonly understood. I use ableton to record and mix, but whatever you have will do. I think audacity is a bunch of trouble for music just because of some of its workflow stuff and I don't know that it snaps to bars, but it'd work fine too.

Hi Max. I am just beginning to experiment with sounds and composition for my game. What tools did you use to create sounds and music for your games?

Haha, yeah, search on itch.io if you want to see how I distributed it there, it's a free download.

ohh, i didnt know you could get a bundled version of yarntown with the solarus engine. I just downloaded yarntown from the solarus website and then startet it myself in solarus. Guess i learned something today besides school.

Yeah, exactly. It's the same as Yarntown, downloading the "game" is a bundled version of the game and solarus-run.exe

Shane, I also really want to see an official Switch port. Time will tell but I'm hopeful.

I have to imagine that has to do with the updated licence information Solarus published earlier this month. I assume that Solarus/Solarus Launcher will be packaged and distributed with your purchase of Ocean's Heart via Steam.

ohh its on steam now, i havent seen it. How does that even work? Ocean heart runs on the solarus engine, how does steam get around having to deal with users needing to have solarus directly installed for users to play the game?  ???

I saw the listing for this show up on Steam. I'm quite excited for the official release. Not gonna lie, it makes me really want to see an official eShop Switch port.
