RKS Challenge #006 Results... and Other Things

1st Place - Cremator - Combined time of 3'10"50
2nd Place - Tanin - Combined time of 3'26"11
3rd Place - Moonblade13 - Combined time of 4'23"51

And the winner of Double-Cross is Cremator! There's not much I can really say about these results. Go watch the replays for yourself. Some of the techniques used are beyond impressive. I hope you guys are ready for Challenge #007. Remember, it's got a cash prize, so prepare yourself for the worst!


Another graphic mod for Rosenkreuzstilette is currently in the works. We'll be inserting the Freudenstachel images and sprites for Freudia, Liebea, Grolla, and Zorne into the original game. In addition, I will be fixing a minor error with the original Grollschwert Mod. Future plans, once we hack the game further, will be to create a player mod to allow you to play as Hero of Justice Luste. Because we do not have the sprites for the RKSF version of Hero of Justice Luste, I will be editing the sprites to reflect her RKSF April Fool's version, in which she has black goggles and a yellow scarf a la Protoman. When I get even better at sprite editing, I will implement a graphic mod that allows Spiritia to literally morph into the respective character of the weapon she is selecting.


There's been more talk about RKS over on 2ch. Our resident reporter has informed me that of all the random things to come up, someone attempted to do a full run of the game using only "pea-shooter" shots, or only uncharged buster shots. Funnily enough, he did not have the patience to defeat the Cross Wall, the Spider, and the Yellow Devil in this manner. There was also talk of a glitch in which the game will bug out if you defeat Sichte during a Time Stop while in mid-air as Grolla. I tried to replicate it as best I could, and the one instance in which I actually succeeded, I did not encounter such a bug. I'll try my best to replicate the method.

By the way, I made a picture for linking and such over there underneath the [erka:es] one. You can use it for linking here.


  1. Congrats, 65! Whoever doubted you would come out on top wouldve defied a god here...

    Curious...will you replace the stage selection graphic on the right side aswell as we talked about it on Skype? If not, do it please :) Would love more graphic mods with awesomeness!

  2. Congrats, Cremator ! The level is too different O_O

    Wow, so much mods planned !
    The style change for Spiritia would be great... At last we could play Schweeeer !
    Reminds me the Model-A transforms from Megaman ZXA...
