    I'm using a plugin that shows text in it's own window and in order to add text to this window I can use a Plugin Command.

  7. RMMV Random Messages when attacking an enemy

    A interesting mechanic that the Glory of Heracles series has is that when a character attacks, it shows a small flavour text of the character screaming or threatening the enemy. As you can already guess, I want that in my game! I also plan on giving player's the option of changing the default...
  8. Should I start now with MZ or wait for Unite?

    So, I've been dabbling into some RPG Maker MZ tutorials and resources on the last couple of days, trying to figuring out what do I want to do, I was thinking about making either an ARPG or a Tactical RPG, and I actually found some plugins for MZ for the second one. But, I also found out RPG...
  9. Is there a way to make an attack only possible if an actor is in a certain state?

    I have an actor that gives themselves a state called Adrenaline, and I want to make a move that only works if they actively have this state. Can I have some help on how to do this?
  10. are there any rpy maker mz courses that actually goes indepth in to JavaScript?

    I'm more of an artist than a programmer to be honest, while I've looked in to javascript courses on my own, for whatever reason I still don't get how I'm supposed to translate any of that knowledge in to rpg maker, and its making me really frustrated. I've come to the conclusion that I might...

    A few random MV questions I can't find any answers to.

    So, I've got a few questions: I'm not sure where to start with them! One, I'm trying to make a click-through tutorial screen, similar to Yume Nikki's tutorial effect. There are only two pictures and I can't seem to figure it out on my own. Do I need to use a script, or something? I'd prefer...

    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...
  14. 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...
  16. 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...

    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...

I'm curious, how many hours in RPG Maker do you have? I'm clocked in at 2100 hours on MV and the vast majority of it is for one game. I wish I could track how much I used XP back in the day, I was on it a lot.
Why is it so early? Can I have twenty more minutes of sleep, please?
Do you like this design?

Im watching Depp vs Heard and keep thinking: "Wouldnt it be fun if her middle name was Lisa? Then she'd be Amber L. Heard. Sounds like Amber Alert."

Then I found out her middle name is Laura.
Yeaah, pallarax mapping
