  1. Tall Sprite characters

    Hi everyone and welcome to my post. Before talking about what I came to look for, I come first of all to seek help (because I have been starting for a while), maybe for some, simple things (in my opinion who are). I am French and excuse me, but I have to go through a translator. I don't know...
  2. HerGoldia

    I finally pulled the trigger and bought RPGM MZ! Any Tips to start with?

    Hey, I'm Asche HerGoldia. New here! I've always wanted to make my own Games. A Story RPG, Fighters, etc. I can Draw, Write and Compose Music a bit but I don't like Coding so I had my eyes on RPGM for the longest time. I remember Final Fantasy was the one among of a sea of games that first...

    What part of your game do you usually work on first?

    I'm an artist before I became interested in game development, which is why I chose rpg maker as the game engine since I have no coding knowledge. When I started making my game, I learned the basics of rpg maker mv then started working on the art of the game: character portraits, sprites etc...
  4. MV or MZ for a beginner with coding experience and high aspirations

    I am going to make a game which is distinct enough that i'll need a lot of plugins and probably code some myself. The idea is a buldurs game like game where its based of a ttrpg and is more or less just converted into a game. RPG-maker works well in that regard. But the battle system alone is...

    Starting my very first project (Visual and implementation questions)

    Hey there! Soo... I'm not sure where to start this, so I'll jump right into it. This is my very first time with RPG Maker (MV) and with game development in itself. My idea is about an endless, Undertale-like game, where you have to handle periodically spawning mobs in random order -either with...
  6. Beginner in need of help

    Hello everyone! I have some newbie questions about RPG Maker. If someone can help me with it, it would be much appreciated. First, this is probably the most stupid question of them all. How do you keep open a choose dialog option? Since my english is trash, i'll offer an example. Char 1 talks to...

    Is there a "manual"?

    Hiya! Still plugging alone trying to figure RPGMaker MZ out -- really only ever used the PSX version, so there's a lot to learn, and I'm still struggling with a lot of basics, even after finishing the tutorial. (For example, I only recently learned I could select more than one tile.) I want to...

    How long is to long of a beginning?

    I was working on my story heavy RPG, when i realized that it takes about 15-20 minutes (depending on how long the player spends goofing off, talking to villagers, messing with a cat that hangs out by the village, gathering materials, etc) before there is any real combat (besides the pseudo...

  10. General Help/Guidance

    Hello everybody! I'm working on a very ambitious project in RPG Maker MV and I have no idea where to even start. I've begun with composing some tracks, doing concept art, and writing the story, but I have no idea where to even start when it comes to actually programming things in this...

    Beginner RM2K3 user, in need of help with first game.

    What's happenin' fourm? I'm working on an RM2K3 game called Mist. It's semi-inspired by Earthbound/MOTHER 2, and exists to put the titular character Mist into distress. The game is low-fantasy, and the plot goes as follows: Mist is a random traveller who enters 'The Dark World' hoping to find...

    RMMV Princesses of Public Domain

    Princesses of Public Domain This is a quick beginner RPG I built for my 8-year old daughter as a way to introduce her to the genre. It can be completed in about 3 hours or broken into roughly 4x 45 minute chunks. Collect princesses, help them with their own fabled story-line, then get them...

    Hello to everyone~

    Hello, dearest friends. I’m Mort(or necromortis) I guess it isn't the first thread with such "genius" question, but anyway. I really want to be a part of community. I want to make games using RMMV(or RMVX), but.. I simply don't know what to do first. (Except for the plot and character...

    Help with Hiding/Revealing locations

    So I have a game where there are dungeons that remain hidden and you cannot enter. But when you meet certain criteria, it reveals itself and allows you to enter. I tried to set it so when a variable reaches or exceeds a certain number, the event reveals itself and lets you interact with it. Can...
  15. A question about RPG Maker's default tiles

    (I'm sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this question, I wasn't sure where to ask this.) Is it possible to make a nice-looking RPG Maker game using mostly the tiles the program comes with? I don't have much in way of resources or artistic ability, so I feel I'll have to rely on them...

    #10 - pitfalls of PIXI

    Part 10 of the tutorial series is up! In the past videos you may have seen me use PIXI. Sprite.fromImage instead of MV's default sprite stuff, but I've always said you shouldn't use it unless you want to deal with the pitfalls of PIXI. So I explain some of them in this video. If you don't intend...

    RMMV Heroic Fantasy RPG

    I'm making my first RM game. I'm really excited because it incorporates all my various creative interests in one place: character design, world building, illustration, game development and music. I've made a few games in Unity (and published one to Google play) but I don't think I'm that kind of...

    Make Damage Popups appear as a group?

    Hey, total newbie to MV here: Very sorry if this has already been answered in a previous thread! I couldn't find it... I have a skill that damages all enemies in combat, and the skill animation is working fine, but I want the damage popups to appear all at once (rather than one by one for each...

    Hey hey, people Nice to meet you all! Just trying to figure out as much as I can about making a great dungeon crawler. I've written a lot throughout my life and have always wanted to make a game but never had the know-how to do it. But thanks to RPG Maker and the internet, that is now possible...

    Chase scenes with big sprites

    Is there a way to make chase scenes with very big sprites? (a la Ao Oni, but thicker, like the Caterpillar Oni). The problem is that when the sprites are so big, the event touch looks awkward when they reach the player. Is there any way to fix it, like a script or something?

Our latest Make a Game in MZ Stream is here! Today, we're going to create a complex switch puzzle, where flipping one switch also toggles the switches adjacent to it. Join now to see how it's done!

Here's a preview to an upcoming free track. Kind of a hybrid, Middle Eastern, orchestral thingy. Should be released pretty soon!

Time: duration regarded as belonging to the present life as distinct from the life to come or from eternity; finite duration.
