Something which has come up in a bunch of threads recently (Advice You Disagree With, Things in RPGs Which Annoy You, Are RPG Maker Games Asset Flips) is the undeniable public opinion that RPG Maker Games - which is to say games made with RPG Maker, not the engines themselves - have...

    Hot Take: Phantasy Star 4 is a better FF7 than FF7

    Ah, it must be time for a controversial hot take. While I am not stranger to shaking up the forum. I wanted to put my thoughts to text on a subject that I even wrote about in a college class paper. But first some background, everybody knows what Final Fantasy 7? Right? I don't have to explain...

    Should you make an automated system to adjust the strength of Bosses?

    Hello everyone, I could use some opinions on this matter. Okay, to quickly summarize what I have going on right now: (Note: I am using MV, but this is basically applicable to all Engines) Every Major Boss, Optional Boss and Miniboss has a "Recommended Level" associated with them. And when the...

    I need the community's opinion on something.

    I plan to make a tutorial that will distill all the knowledge gathered around our forum members, on copyright issues, intellectual property issues, what you should do, what you are allowed to do, what you should not do and stuff like that, with a lot of details, so people can be educated on that...

    Making RPG Maker Games Not Look Like RPG Maker Games I was wondering who has experience with this or if rpg maker game devs and players have strong opinions on this. I know some of the attraction of rpg maker games is the typical charming retro look and the more simple approach to game...

    Your opinion on differing/clashing art styles within a game?

    This started out as a quick question on a status update, but it'll be better suited for a thread. Here's the question: Does it bother you when there's multiple art styles within a single game? (RPG's, visual novels, or just games in general) For me, personally, it depends. As long as...

    Listen, this is VERY important. There are tons of frogs in video games, a good number of them are pretty good, but which frog is the best frog in video games, in your opinion at least? Personally one of my favorites is Globox from the Rayman series, he's a big goofy frog friend, he carries...

    Daily Events

    I was wondering, what everyone's opinion on "Daily Events" in RPG Maker Games are. Daily Events, how shall I describe them? I personally--*Coughcough* am curious about the potential these kind of "Sidequests" if we may call them so, might hold. Would you feel thrilled? Excited? Just want the...

    Guys, I want your opinion. World map or not?

    Guys, I need your opinion. Basically, I don't know if I should make my game with a world map (old Final Fantasy style) or make it more like a Zelda game, where a map leads to another and, eventually, the player will arrive in a city/town/dungeon.

    RTP-friendly art or original style?

    Thinking of expanding my RPG Maker knowledge beyond mere mapping and general use of the software. Should I make art assets RTP-friendly to get a broad audience (or not, since I read a lot of people avoid the RTP-style) or slowly make my own art style to go with my projects?

    Story based game

    I'm a bit at war with myself. I always wanted to write a novel but I'm not good at describing environment. So my main questions are: 1. would a game strongly based on story (with some riddles or something) would get any attention? :unsure: 2. do people (in general) enjoy RPG Makers combat and...

    What do you think about storing images inside the plugin?

    As I was working with my Save Engine plugin, I learned a lot about managing files and storing images in the form of a "URI data" (or base64 encoded image, as corrected me Hudell) inside the plugins, so I can call it without the developper needing to download them in separated  zip files and...
