Even in another decade, another quarter means another RRR! A lot of high quality files have been released, check out the comments to read on!

The basic rules of the RRR are as follows:

1) You can vote for one D-Mod and for one Non D-Mod file. You cannot vote for two D-Mods or two Non D-Mod files.
2) Voting is done by posting a reaction in this topic with your choice.
3) You can not change your vote. So make sure you think before voting!
4) Only "well known" members are allowed to vote. This means that no ghosts or really new accounts can vote. This is done to prevent people from voting with alternate accounts.
5) Discussion about the files is encouraged. But please, no spamming or attacking other members!
6) The two D-Mods and two Non D-Mod files with the highest amount of votes of each RRR will participate in the Download of the Year Awards for their respective category early next year.

The choices for this RRR include all files released between january 1st and march 31st, 15 files in total. Start voting!

That health bar is exactly the same as Magicman's. I couldn't find any variation. Why is it uploaded again?

Anyways, my DMOD vote goes to Three Amulets. And I haven't decided on a non-DMOD yet.

My vote goes to Falldink because somebody, not naming any names here Christiaan, was silly enough to leave it off the list.
As for the dev vote, I haven't really looked at any of the latest Dev releases so I'll leave that to others.

Ok I've decided to vote for Three Amulets; I'm really proud over what I've done.

I didn't know anything about DinkC scripting when I started it but with time I slowly began to understand how it worked (Much thank to the dink network where I got help from time to time) and how things could be done (I think you can see how my scripting improved during the game).

I'm actually surprised myself that I could manage to bring the ideas in my head into the dmod, working, but it also took a lot of time to make. I worked 1-3 hours every day for months to complete the dmod, but it was worth it because I succeeded to live up to the goals I had for it and create a unique dmod.

For non D-Mod files, I vote for 10-sword icons.

Dmod: Dong! I have to say, though, that I haven't played Historical Hero or the Three Amulets more than a few minutes each.

Dev: IPD Pack all the way, it's an awesome graphic pack.

Non D-Mod: IDP Pack. I always like new graphics and think more people should use them in their D-Mods. The trees in this pack are lovely!

D-Mod: Historical Hero. A tough choice, as I love Three Amulets and Dong as well, but Historical Hero is huge, there's so much to do, and it's the first epic in years. More please!

D-Mod: Three Amulets, but I must admit I haven't found time to play more than 5 minutes of Historical Hero.

Non D-Mod: Potion Bag System, used with Percentage Based Potions?

I've had some problems deciding which of the two D-Mods "Historical Hero" and "Three Amulets" I should give my vote to. They're both excellent games. Iplaydink has created a very unique D-Mod with his DinkC scripting. I really liked all the bosses throughout the game and it was overall a nice quest. Historical Hero is the first epic in years. I must say that it was over my anticipations by far. Sure, some parts of the game are quite dull ("Dink, get my beer", "I have no idea, help yourself" etc.) but I liked the atmosphere in the game and I ended up with a playtime of about 5 hours. I'll review both D-Mods when I get some spare time further on.

I've decided to put my D-Mod vote to Skulls Historical Hero. That was a truckload of entertainment.

My non D-Mod vote goes to Iplaydinks graphic pack. Keep it up, they're really looking awesome!

Was very hard deciding between the 3 amulets, Dong and Historical Hero. These three contenders were really good and all for different reasons, but since I have to vote for only one *sighs* for sheer effort and (yeah looks like size did matter) my vote goes to Historical Hero

Sure, if you keep count of them and disregard votes done by suspicious accounts (which, so far, seldomly happens).

But that's not official.

I'm just a bit partial to original graphics... I can write scripts, I can edit existing graphics. I can't, however, draw anything from scratch that doesn't look like a turd.
