  1. I purchased one of Tokiwa's graphic packages. I'm pleased so far although I wished it included face sets.

    MOTM - Moons of True Magic

    The game appears to be very beautiful. I like the maps from the previews. The custom battlers look great in the battle's settings. However, I do not know what this game is about. May you please be a more direct about the game and its features?

    ~The Seventh Warrior~

    I like this game's concept. Dark is living in a world with villains, and is competing to conquer the world. I am very curious on who joins his party and why. I am curious about Yoko's motives, and I also like her cute design!
  4. Sorry, if this topic has already been created. I could not find one as I did honestly search for it. As many people know the RPG Maker MV is being released on the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and XBox One. It is the first RPG Maker to be released on home consoles in many years. However, there are many questions about this version. Who is this product for? I am guessing young children. Many PC users such as myself do not need this version of MV. I can only see parents buying this for their kids or someone who does not know anything about the RPG Maker. You may have noticed new heroes and one new villain in the trailer. My only hope is they become available for PC users such as ourselves. They can expand MV's tiny RTP. It's the smallest RTP to my knowledge. There is an interesting comment on the trailer's page on YouTube. A viewer mentions the trailer does not show any features of the engine/game. There is a lot of false advertising. Your heroes/battlers do not appear on full screen. The trailer does not show the battle systems or any features in the engine.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    I like your approach on this subject. A resource pack with different styles to represent different cultures is very much needed. I feel the RTP lacks a variety of styles for games with multiple countries and cultures. The only graphics with different styles are sometimes the hero graphics with characters wearing different clothes and hairstyles from different cultures. I would like a RTP or pack with different cultures such as Country Z knight and Country B knight having different style armors and emblems. I think many RPG Maker games suffers from the lack of culture in different countries in games. We have all seen the same red flag with the gold symbol at every castle. It makes the game look more generic than it should.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    @PhoenixSoul Thanks for letting me know about VX's Wild Steam. I don't recall any other VX pack including any skin tones. I'll take a look when I have time. One thing that I forgot to mention is the lack of racial groups or skin colors put minority developers like myself at a financial disadvantage. It forces us to purchase custom resources or use the not so perfect generator. As a black man, I like creating characters that represent me and friends. The majority of characters in my game are white, but there are other characters with different skin tones to create realism.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    Japan's culture is why we don't see characters from other races or skin tones in the RPG Maker RTP. Japan create characters with skin tones related to Japanese people and Europeans. As PhoenixSoul said Japan's social presentation is the medieval era with Japanese features. White developers and Japanese developers relate to the characters in the RTP. However, I think the RPG Maker can do a much better job at representing other racial groups by offering more skin tones in the RTP. The RPG Maker is a global product, and people from all races use the program. They should consider those users as well because they are customers. One or two battlers with a darker skin tone with features to a different race should be included in a future update. They've released new battlers and graphics at the official store. Are there any new packs with a variety of skin tones or racial groups?
  8. I suggest writing your game's idea and the progress in the game story. This strategy gives directions to you about the flow of your game. I normally create maps and events in order of the game's progress, but there are exceptions when I really want to make a cool dungeon. The best step to take is testing your game when you think it is finished. You want to remove any bugs and typos in your game. Make sure all events work as they should. Also ask a friend to test the game for anything that you may have missed.

    . . hello . .

    Hello! Welcome to the forums! What are your favorite horror games?
  10. I'm happy with the progress that I have made so far! My ice temple is coming along nicely.

  11. I was going to make a topic about traits, and realize I need to consider the players' feelings. They are the people who are playing our games. Their opinions on our games matter. We want to give them a positive experience, and an experience to relive by replaying our games. How do players feeling about MV's traits? I am adding traits to my characters to make them unique. It also provides strategies for the player to use. Players will be rewarded or punished for using the wrong party members for a major battle. I think this idea is fine as long as the player has the options to switch party members before those major battles.

    How do players feel about MV's traits?

    Sorry for the confusion! I stopped using XP, VX, and VX ACE after every update. I forgot those systems use the term "features" instead of traits. That's a good idea Kayzee. Switching party members would give a better experience to players. They won't feel trapped in an extremely tough fight. They will either tough it out or reset the game.
  13. Hello, I haven't posted a status update in many years. I don't see the option to post one. I can reply to other members' updates, but I don't have the option of writing my own..

    How do I post a Status Update?

    Thank You!

    Naima's Melody (Demo Available)

    I enjoyed the game play trailer. This game is progressing very nicely. I like this game's graphics because the graphics reminds me of the Legend of Zelda. Good luck with your project!

    How do players feel about MV's traits?

    I think you may have misunderstood me. I am referring to Actor's traits. You can make actors strong or weak against certain elements. You can also make them immune or very vulnerable to status effects.

    Hearts Like Clockwork (Featuring Kagamine Rin)

    This game looks really good. I like the custom graphics, and they help your game stand out from the competition. Keep it up!

    Math teacher incomming (Fr/En)

    Hello! Welcome to the forums! I have seen a few educational games made with the RPG Maker. I recommend making a fun game that rewards students/players for getting correct answers. Also, research educational games by RPG Maker and you will find some.

    Noob vs Newb And Why it Matters

    It's actually newbie, not noob or newb. I'm old school and always talk and write in proper English. This is just a personal preference. This generation has a major cultural problem in education such as "alternative facts" (lies) and refusing the truth. It's not about a person getting a PHD. It's about today's people just ignore facts to please their personal beliefs. This topic reminds me of when I first started playing Cardfight!! Vanguard. I was called a newb because it was my first experience playing, but I already knew the rules from watching the show. I crushed all of the experienced players.
  20. Hi everyone! I have been trying to contact RPG Maker Web's support for over a week, and have not gotten a response from their support. I also reached out to them on Facebook. However, they still did not respond to me. I would have made this post there, but I was ban 3 or 4 years ago from the forums. I have no other way of contacting their support. Does anyone know what is going on with RPG Maker Web's support?

    Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 1800 Tracks

    I need some custom music for my game so I will be emailing you soon!
  22. I am looking for someone who can make a battler with a sprite and portrait. Do you make graphics in the same style as MV's default graphics?
  23. Is there a method to recover MP while walking? I loved this idea in Golden Sun. A player slowly recovers PP while walking anywhere. I want to add it to my game as well.

    Is RTP bad?

    Does this question includes the character generator? I don't think the RTP is bad. It's useful for developers without the knowledge and skills to create custom graphics. If someone does not want to play my game because I use RTP graphics, then that's their choice. I will face the consequences for my decision. Most players will ignore games with RTP. It's unoriginal and the graphics are in so many graphics. How many games has Ralph starred in? I don't mind playing games with RTP. The RTP has a bad reputation because there are so many horrible games made with the engine. It's guilty by association.
  25. What type of story do you prefer for RPG games? Do you like complex stories like Final Fantasy XIII or something simple like Final Fantasy VI. I think simple stories do a lot better than complex stories. Developers often over do it when trying to make a story deeper than it should be. Final Fantasy VI has a great story, and it is very simple. I easily followed the entire game without wondering what in the world is happening. I knew every character inside out. It was clear who the villains were throughout the game.
