    All of my image links have stopped working

    I noticed a couple of days ago that the image in my signature is no longer showing, but now appears as a broken link. Someone else just commented on one of my tutorials that they cannot see the images. I looked at this post just a few days ago and the images were all fine, and today they are...

    Enhancements for my MV plugins (& porting to MZ)

    While thinking about porting my MV plugins to MZ (and some to Ace and VX and maybe XP as well), I realised some of them could be tweaked as well as made to be more user friendly. If you've used any of my plugins and have suggestions for simple enhancements, please post them here so I can start...

    To Steam, or not to Steam - that is the question

    Got a new computer arriving soon - hopefully will be installing all my program this weekend. Debating whether to install Steam or not ... what do you think? I really don't like the platform at all! So looking for folks to sell me on the benefits - what am I missing if I don't get it, and...

    Which of my plugins would you like ported to MZ?

    I really don't know where to post this, as it's not a request or support ... but anyway. Do you use any of my plugins for MV and would like to see them for MZ (if the engine doesn't include that functionality by default)? Please comment below which ones, so I can prioritise. Actor Stepping...

    Any tutorials for editing sprites

    Does anyone have links to good tutorials that show how to edit existing sprites? I'm thinking poses that would often be in a game but not be made by a character generator ... - falling - riding a horse - rowing a boat - swimming My art skills include making lines and shapes with so...

    How to move RTP to a new location?

    I have just installed XP on a different machine, and by default (and without asking), it put the RTP into Program Files. I would like it to be on my second drive, so I have copied the folder over there, and renamed the original. When I start XP it tells me it can't find the files, but I don't...

    Latest Threads glitch

    The Latest Threads (top right) takes me to the latest profile posts when I click on it. It's been this way since the beginning, but I never mentioned it as I assumed it was a work-in-progress.

    New tutorials, troubleshooting, videos, stuff

    I'm planning on making a few tutorials and maybe some videos (if I can find some good free screen capture software - haven't started looking yet). I've got a list of things, but thought I'd put it out there to see if there's anything you see coming up over and over in the forums that people...

    Steam keys with purchases from RPG Maker Web store

    Is the free Steam key with a purchase of MV from the web store a permanent thing? I thought it was only temporary and went away, but understand it came back (don't know when) - is it staying for good? Is that just a thing with MV, or does it apply to the other game engines as well...

    Issues with new theme

    I'm using the light theme. When I'm writing a post, and I want to select some text to erase, the highlight color is dark, but the text color is also dark, and I can't read what I've selected. If I get an alert and click the icon in the top right corner, they appear as light text on dark...

    How do I find "threads I started"?

    Okay, this has got me stumped. On the previous version of the forum, I could search for posts without using a keyword, where the author is me. I could then filter the results to remove my replies to other people's threads and only see threads that I started. I can't figure out how to do that...

    Copy/paste map sections between projects

    Does this not work? I thought it did. I can copy sections of maps to other maps within the same project, but if I try to copy to a different project, it doesn't work. The selection rectangle when I move over the map in the new project is only one tile, rather than the correct width/height...

    How to show the right frame/pattern on a placeholder event

    I know there's a trick to this, but I just can't remember, and too many of my search terms are just 3 letters to come up with a solution. I have a number of blank events that I use to show character sprites during cutscenes. When I use a move route to change the event's sprite, it's often on...

    What's your Mapping wishlist?

    I never really used anything earlier than RMXP, so I can only comment on that and what's come since. Thinking of all the different versions of the engine, what might be possible in other engines or mapping tools, or what you'd like to see that you haven't yet seen anywhere (except 3D - please...

    Expanded Autotiles

    Remember that nifty little tool that XP had, where you could double-click on an autotile and it would open up a window showing all variations of that autotile, allowing you to select the one you want and place it on the map? I miss that tool. For some reason it was removed in VX, Ace and MV...

    Playing cards - MV

    Could anyone please point me in the direction of tiles or characters of playing cards for MV? Just a few dealt cards in a couple of different arrangements (one player facing up, one player facing right) - deck would be optional. I know the casino tiles pack probably has some, but it's...

I hope I'm not the only one super excited about the Minecraft Live broadcast on Friday! (At least, Friday for me) I'm planning to catch it because I need to get my vote in there and add a mob to the game! I hope I'll see some of you there!

Whoa, was browsing the forum and stumbled onto you account! Big fan of your work!
I just put in the equivalent of a full-time work day on my game... I think maybe it's time to take a break.
