Best tools for your resources in Platform Builder!
« on: October 14, 2018, 10:32:49 AM »
Hello, I'm here to present you which tools I use to create my resources, or change formats etc. for my projects:

1.- Online OGG converter: This is not only for OGGs, but this link will send
you to the page where you change any sound format into OGG. It's very secure and has no ads.
https://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-ogg
2.- Paint.net: Paint.net is a free software for image editing, is very professional and has a lot of tools to use.
https://www.getpaint.net/
3.- Kevin MacLeod's Music: Here we have some royalty free music to use in your projects, you only have to credit Kevin MacLeod. He has tons of music in his library and you can download any of them at any moment totally free. Also, you may have heard some of those songs, apart from my projects or other's projects in PB, in youtube also, there are a lot of these songs.

V Examples V
Some examples of music in this page from my game "Castle Chamber":
Desert of Lost Souls, Video Dungeon Boss
Some examples of music in this page from the game "Epic Platforms" (Actually not available in explore section):
Adventure Meme, March of the spoons, Mischief Maker
Some examples of music in this page from the game "Geometry Dash" (It's not a platform builder game):
BossaBossa
Some examples of music in this page from YouTube videos:
Carefree, Investigations, Hidden Agenda, Hitman etc.
Simply search for them
4.- Resource Hacker: If you want to make an exe of your game, the exe icon will be automatically placed, if you want to change the icon, you may need this program. This has other functions, but mostly you will do this!

I know that. I just think it's a little funny we both use these resources.
