    I actually really like XP, probably more than the others, except that the text box input is quite unusable for me and it's kind of important to a story.
    Just thinking about the soundtrack makes me want to try it again, thanks ;)

    @kirbwarrior i don't know if you knew this but you can actually right click and use the batch text option which will give you 4 lines instead of 3 on the message box. It is weird that they never fixed that.

    I did but thank you. That's fine for initial dialogue, but it doesn't allow for ease of editing later on. I actually used to have an extremely roundabout way of doing it by using a hacked version of XP that let you in editor change the size of the box. I would do text management in that program, then bring it over to the actual XP. It's only slightly better.

    If I knew how to do the battle system to mimic XP's properly in MV, then I could get most of what I want there.
    But I'll always missed those layers.

    @kirbwarrior postality knights? ;) heh heh heh
    i know there's much more you can do with formulas and stuff with mv, but man, i do like the simplicity of xp's battle system waaaay better.
    you could always use tileD with mv, but it is something that isn't built in the engine, yeah, layers were amazing.

    Ah, PK, those were the days. XP also has the weapon ATK separate from STR which I thought was awesome. At least with MV you can keep things simple.

    I was so happy when the makers came over officially. I now own them all from 2k forward on Steam, but I did have both PK and a regular unofficial english XP back in the day. I've always been pretty evasive about talking about PK since I know it's not allowed on most forums.

    @kirbwarrior the way i see it, it's more of a funny part of rm's history than something a lot of people are actively using nowadays, it's probably not as much of an issue.

    That's true, and it's not like people don't know about it or Don Miguel's 2k. Honestly, I don't know if using PK is "bad" if you also have and use the official XP.
