Been using Pixel Game Maker. Not bad but for sure needs improvements. I like it more than RPG Maker MV, that should tell you something. May 21, 2019

        Now I remember why I stop commenting or coming here too much anymore.. the rules are WAY too strict.

        Unfortunate reality of corporate laws vs. private laws, sadly.

      I wonder when the next RPG Maker will be announced.

        My other complaint is a lack of a forum for Pixel Game Maker MV.. they don't have a place to share projects and screen shots and so forth. Just the Steam forums which is mostly filled with bug submissions and complaints.

        @MikePjr That's a big downer. No community. Maybe a Reddit or Discord but every engine should have an official community.

        I would not say there's no community.
        But for sure there is not one like RPG Maker has.
        Someone really needs to start a proper forum.
        The steam forums are not adequate in my opinion.
        The software needs a proper forum and community much like RPG Maker has.

        Since it's curbing the violent tendencies, you may want to try combining it with another medication. Combination meds tend to work better, and maybe the right combo will even out the lows too. You can't expect anything to work as well as Zoloft, sadly. So frustrating to develop an allergy for it, but if you keep taking it the allergy will only get worse.

      Action Game Maker MV! Woot! I can't get too excited though... need to see how the UI is first. No word yet on a western release either.

        I got ahead of myself.
        It's called Pixel Game Maker MV, and it is coming out in the west around the same time.
        I WISH they would pick a name to use globally..

        Have you worked with other makers before?
        What part of the mapping is giving you the troubles?

        It's the lack of control over layers, and having to make extra tiles to place in some spots to make things less squared
        I've used all of them in the past.
        My favorite is XP, but it runs like crap on my newer rig..
        I hope the next RPG Maker has a better mapping setup.
        In their attempt to make it simpler, i feel they made it more of a pain to use.

        And it was extensively commented on at the time, so I don't think there's much to add.
        @Hudell they held everyone's images to ransom, demanding $399 a year to host them for 3rd party sites e.g. this forum. Not surprisingly, most people walked away rather than pay top dollar.

        Lol. They could probably get away with it if they asked for $20 or so, but #399 is suicide.

        Yeah, you can't do that thing where images show up in forums. And i still see folks using PhotoBucket.

      What can be considered illegal as far as art goes?


      I ask because i have made some custom sprites that are high res, i drew them from scratch, they're not stolen nor ripped, but they share a similar style with FF6


      So i'm trying to figure out if i could get into trouble for stealing something just cause it shares a somewhat similar style.

        I'd probably go for General Discussion. If that's wrong, one of the mods will move it to a more appropriate place.

      I think it's a bit idiotic that the improvement board for MV was closed.


      People like myself were asking for stuff that should have been put into an RPG Maker a long time ago.


      Anyhow, i wanted to post my opinion on the matter, and i realize if i post this in a thread, it would just get closed.

        Seriously? I must have missed that.


        I think the last thing i asked about was... back when it first opened.


        I think i asked about the note boxes being something that opened in it's own sub window so you could see and type out more things.


        I also suggested some easier way of using different tileset sizes..


        I still feel like, that by now there should have been set up options for tile sizes..16x16 32x32 48x48.. so on and so forth.


        I realize their is a plugin, but it seems to just make things less streamlined and more cumbersome.


        But i think that's all i remember asking, and i asked about that WAYS back, so i had not been paying attention and had no idea people were asking for anything unreasonable or game specific.

        @MikePjrWell they absolutely have been. You get people asking (or close to demanding at times) for mundane trivialities that could already be evented by anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the program in minutes, and people asking for things as specific as battle systems or personal tweaks that while a few would find useful, most would be perturbed by the narrowed functionality said tweaks would impose with no regard for their own shortsightedness and no patience to listen when the devs tried to explain why such things couldn't/shouldn't be done with the program.


           I'm also surprised it lasted as long as it did, and can understand why it was closed since at times it appeared to be an endless cycle of the exact same arguments perpetuated relentlessly to no end.

        No...


        His name is Richard Landale.


        He's a modified sprite of Chaz's face.


        But he's not Chaz.


        Chaz has blond hair not a light brown hair.


        Chaz has a red jacket not a dark brown


        Chaz's hair is a bit different as well.


        I just did what japanese artists tend to do, use the same basic design and alter it.


        His face is not even shaped the same as Chaz's face.

    Words of wisdom

    Life is too short to ridicule others and make them feel bad.

    It is better to improve upon one's own self, than it is to point out others flaws.

    There is a difference between constructive criticism, and being a jerk.
