The VG Resource

Full Version: Dark Cloud 1, Hi Everyone
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I'm nervous but here goes, I'm MoonBunny and it's my first time signing up on VG Resource, I come visit this website every few months without an account to look at the models posted and it has fascinated me for quite some time. Last month I finally decided to give it a go and worked hard in extracting models, organizing blend files for Dark Cloud 1, a ps2 video game. So far I've completed all of Norune, NPCs, Landmass, Homes + interiors, Player models such as Toan and Xiao and all of their weapons. I've included some screenshots, the file is a shy over 100MB so I'm not sure where to go to start contributing.



I started digging into the files due to that there's hardly any DC1 models available to download, so I wanted to contribute. I hope you'll enjoy some of the photos you'll see below.

There's a lot more images but I think this will be enough to get started, I hope you guys like them.

Welcome!

I'm personally a huge Dark Cloud fan so I really appreciate this! Keep it a secret, but I actually have a Xiao custom sprite in the works, and I kind of want to make sprites for the whole cast at some point.

I've only contributed to the Spriter's Resource, so the process may be a bit different over there, but to submit a something to a section just click on that section when logged on and then select the “Add New (whatever)” icon. Then you just follow the instructions. This page covers the submission process in a bit more detail: https://wiki.vg-resource.com/How_To_Subm...s_Resource.  Don't worry about this being specifically for the Spriter's Resource, the Models Resource doesn't have its own page but the process should be similar. I hope that helps. If you have any questions I'll be more than happy to help in any way that I can.

Oh Thanks so much for the reply to my post! I was worried it was gonna get burred due to how many views some get but with little to no comments. I'll be sure to PM you at some point, your project sounds pretty cool too. Speaking of custom work, I'm working on a special font designed for Comic writers and Dark Cloud fans that allows you to install it as a TTF (true type font) into any typing program or install it for windows. There's a few kinks to work out with spacing though. I'll show you a quick example. I'm also building an interesting customizable speech bubble that you can change shape in real time.

No problem!

Your text project looks really cool! I'd love to play around with the customizable speech bubble once it is finished, if it's all right with you of course.

of course, I built it for the community, if you use blender you should be able to use it.

I made an account JUST for this post! I am drawing a Dark Cloud comic and you would not believe how limited resources are for this poor game. I don’t have cool software, so I don’t even know how to access these files —if anyone has tips for me please let me know! I’d be happy to draw something for you, I’m just so dumb and so new to all of these things, but just immediately excited and grateful! I can’t believe there are people who still think about Dark Cloud. ? Just wanted to say thank you SO MUCH! I can tell this is like a childhood dream come true.

Welcome!

I would believe it actually. I have started a few Dark Cloud custom sprites and it is very difficult to find decent reference pictures. I've never ripped any models myself, but they do have links to some tutorials here. The most applicable to this situation is probably this one here that covers how to rip from PS2 games specifically. Worse come to worse you can always set up a request on the request board. I hope that helps! I look forward to checking out your comic!
Awesome work! I was actually playing this not too long ago and was a bit disappointed that there's only a piecemeal rip of the item sprites for DC1 and nothing for DC2, but I'm busy with other projects right now...
