easy , ignore it and make your own game with your own style while having fun , if you too focus on other games you will lose sight on the importance of your game ( what exactly do you want to make game for ? ).
dont be discouraged with other games , make your own and pour your time and effort...
" player can walk through every tile for some reason "
perhaps you have blank O tiles in 2nd / 3rd layer that is NOT the very first tile .
only use first tile (upper far left) to have blank tiles on 2nd + 3rd that doesnt override all tiles .
" even with the X's on them or passages. "...
im xp user but i suggest also looking for the script that you need for your game because some script made for a particular game maker only .
xp is old so many script available out there .
mv is new although it does have newest script for it out there but not as much as xp (for now) it...
thats really not a nice things to say :| , at least give your reasons for it .
desolation: maybe cool for zombie game , or dramatic scene .

1. know for sure that its because of the paralax map and not the music that you did not pack , its possible to decrease the size of music/sound into just a few 30-100 byte (sound) , music probably more than 100 byte .
2. decrease the size of the paralax map = decrease their quality . -> use...
1. yes .
2. in rpg maker people world yes , outside of it most people probably would like combat/grinding stuff .
3. not me , i wont like it in the slightest , dunno about everyone else .
4. do what you love/have fun with .
stick with 1 rpgm program instead of jack of all trade , stick with 1 style of graphic so they wont look weird .
if you want to use program that can be used in multiple platform and get lots of potential to be played then get MV ,
i never used it but i heard it can be cross over .
I sweep the floor. My brother, "You didn't do a good job. There are dust bunnies everywhere." He sweeps the floor weeks later. "I just swept. Why are there dust bunnies everywhere?" Me," Guess you didn't do a good enough job."
Oh god, just watched HawkZombie's stream of my game and realised that *none* of the branching scenes work properly. One has no character graphic, one soft locks due to a passability issue, and one doesn't have its autorun set to the right trigger. I've got first prize in the bag, baby.
Frustrated, as always. I took a break from working on games and when I turned back to working on them again, bam! Slapped in the face with more errors. Such is the pain of working on any project, I suppose.
