  1. A new year has new possibilities for everyone's game development. What are your RPG Maker goals for 2020? Do you want to release a new game? Do you want to create a new battle system? It could be as simple as creating your first graphic of a character! I'll start us off! My goal is create a trailer of my current project and release a trailer before the end of the year.

    Too much info

    Details are very important elements to a game's story. I think it is best to slowly give details throughout a game. It would make twists and stunning revaluations more exciting at the end. You need to give some information to start the game. It is the developer's job to make people interested in the game. My game's synopsis will not include how the main villain obtained his power. You will need to play the game to discover all of the facts or details. The only details that need all of the information is the game's battle system and other importation functions.
  3. I am so proud of myself! My map of my game's first castle is my best castle ever so far!

  4. Hi everybody! I just remembered I need to purchase a title screen for my project before I announce it on my blog and this site.... What are the best dimensions for a title's pictures for the RPG Maker MV? I want it to have good quality. I would prefer HD if possible. Thanks for any advice!

    Title Screen/Picture Resolution

    Thanks for the tip! I will be sure to order a large title screen. Then, I can reduce it if I need to. Good thinking!

      Ooooor you could just... ya know... make one? I know art can be hard, but all you really need for a half decent title screen is a decent free font, maybe some free generic background clipart, and GIMP. Or maybe Inkscape and GIMP. I mean, I am pretty hopeless at most art but I think I made a decent title screen for my game all on my own.


      ...Though it helps that I seem to have gotten good at scripting cool little visual flares and animations. My tittle screen may mostly be text and simple designs, but a with a bit of scripting an clever use of multiple graphics layers I think it turned out pretty good! Though the only thing I have online that shows it off is this pretty low quality video I made (about 20 seconds in), and I don't show it off for very long.


      Mind you a real experienced artist could still probobly do a better job then you or I, but I think you could do a lot more then you think with free tools/resources if you try.

      I'm not great at programs like Gimp and Inkscape. I use to make thumbnails for my YouTube channel, and they weren't that good.

      Fair enough, though I can hardly be said to be an expert myself. I just fiddle around until I get something I like mostly. I am still discovering little tricks that I can use even though I have been messing around with them for years.

    RPG Maker Offline Builds

    I think your best option is the same one that I give everyone. You may need to ask RPG Maker's customer support. Explain your situation and they may work with you. I hope they do.

    RPG Maker Offline Builds

    Does the Steam version include a license? You may be able to use the same license for a version for the PC. I've always used the RM on my PC.
  10. I am sorry if this has been asked or I overlooked this information. Is there an option to turn the blood off? I noticed blood in the one of mature pictures.

    I need some input on my village layout

    There is a lot of empty space in the village. I recommend considering PhoenixSoul's idea to add a town square. It can fit in the empty space. Use it effectively to make your map stand out and look polish.
  14. Sorry, I have not been around lately. I've been super busy with job interviews and other projects. Hopefully I can be more active here soon.

    Buongiorno a tutti!

    Welcome to the forums! What is your favorite video game?
  16. Caves, dungeons, forests, and many other areas are common in RPGs. The goal is to reach a certain room and you may need to defeat a powerful boss! Is there one way to reach this boss? It depends on the developer. Many games have a linear path and it holds the player's hand. You can't get lost. There is one path to the finish line. On the other hand, great games have alternate paths. There is more than one path to lead to the boss or major event. Sometimes there are incentives to take a different path. Paths may have different enemies and hidden items. I like adding alternate paths in maps. I think all of my maps for dungeons have at least one alternate map. The player is rewarded with special items for exploring. Alternate paths have the potential to add lore to the story. These paths may give backstory to the area. This can be done by reading signs or understanding the meaning of pictures on the map. The Legend of Zelda has many hidden stories or details in pictures in a room. It is a good way to add story or make the player curious about particular events in the picture. Do you add alternate paths in your maps? How many alternate paths do you make per map?

    Wheelchair in an RPG - Open Discussion

    This is an interesting concept. I think it can work, but that would depend on the plot. What do you think of the wheelchair releasing water or oil to slowdown enemies when they are chasing her? She would need a backup plan to defend herself if an enemy knocks her out of her wheelchair. How about a bracer with the ability to shoot bullets?

    ~The Seventh Warrior~

    Those are cool features. They can be great additions to your game. It gives more options for building maps and dungeons. Players need to use those abilities to travel and complete areas.

    Does Anybody Know

    It is very odd to learn your links have expired. None of my purchases for software and packs for resources have expired. I recommend contacting support to get an explanation about the resource packs.

    Hello, old friends! It's me, Purple Phantom!

    Hello, Welcome to the forums. I don't believe we ever met. I have no idea about the story and drama. Welcome to the forums and I wish you the best.
  21. I haven't been around as much as I would like lately. I've been busy with a few freelance jobs.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    I disagreed on your statement about white heroes are all we know. Are most heroes white men? Yes, many heroes are white men. However, there are some black heroes. I am not saying there is a fair portion of black heroes. I am saying black heroes exist and we should acknowledge them in this discussion. It's not fair to say almost every hero is white when that is stretching the facts. The amount of ethic heroes have increased in most medias over the last twenty years. Video games are the only form of media that has not progressed.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    I never downplayed the subconscious affects on minority children. I also never said people should shut up. Black Panther was a major success and great for everyone. It showed a positive side of Blacks. That's great and no one is downplaying it. My examples weren't to say there are enough black characters. My examples were to show there are some black or ethnic heroes in media. You can freely criticize an artist. However, an artist has the right to express his or her beliefs in their work.
  25. There's a new MV pack with VX's characters. I'm considering buying it. Do you guys think VX's graphics mix well with MV's graphics?

      VX characters? As I recall, VX and VX Ace had a similar roster, though there were the cover art characters that never appeared elsewhere...
      Addendum: Found the DLC pack, which includes XP characters. Thanks for spreading the word about this as I definitely want it myself. #wishlisted
      I wouldn't get it right now; wait for it to have a larger discount.

    3. Kayzee


      I thought VX and VX Ace had the exact same graphics?

    4. PhoenixSoul


      VX had a different default actor roster. VX also has different battlers.
