1. Question about "set move route" event

    So, i want to make a small cutscene (if you can call it that), where an actor should step back, i.e. walk without turning in set direction, but no matter what i do, the actor still turns. Is there a way to prevent them from doing so?

    Map location changing an event

    Hello again! I'll try to go "direct" to the point, I am having problems trying to make an event that changes it's conditions depending on its location on the map, for example: I created an object "box" and I would like to make this "box" move, so I put it to moves away from the player, but...

    RM2k/3 Runic Cipher

    Runic Cipher is a long-time JRPG project that's been worked on for several years, on and off. Our goal with this is to bring back that nostalgic feel of the earlier Final Fantasy and Breath of Fire games, as well as having an in-depth and original story line filled with plot twists and with a...
  4. Maniacs Patch EX Key Processing

    Does anyone have any experience using the latest version of RM2K3 Maniacs? Specifically, the Key Proc EX event command. It is apparently supposed to give me full keyboard access for inputs, but, it does not work. There are multiple options, including gamepad functions, but none of them actually...
  5. RM2K3 Passability not working

    Hi, I'm using RPG Maker 2003. I've set the "passability" to X for several tiles that I am using on the lower layer. However, sometimes the player can walk through them. Is there something else that affects this? Why would some tiles allow the player to go through?

    Common event keeps repeating infinitely (Trying to make an Idle animation)

    Hello! I'm trying to add a looping idle animation when the player is not pressing a movement key, the graphic changes and reverts back nicely, but when I add the Move Route command, to do the animation, only the first line is executed infinitely, I'm guessing its because it's a Parallel Process...

  8. Mixing rpg maker files...

    Hi. one day i was just amazed at how graphically the rpg makers so far differed graphically. so I thought if I could move the texture of the older rpg makers into the newer project, I could use it as free resources. but when i tried to go for older rpg projects, i had to realize that there are...

    STEAM RM2K3 + EasyRPG and/or Maniac patch?

    Recently I’ve been made aware of EasyRPG and I’ve known about the Maniac patch before, although I can’t say I really know *exactly* what the Maniac patch offers or how well it works. But as somone who’s looking to make a game in the official STEAM version of RM2K3 in 2021, and hopefully release...

    Advice/Tutorials on creating an CMS in RM2K3?

    I’ve made CMS systems in other engines before, but never in RM2K3. It does seem like the perfect engine to do it in though, with it seemingly more flexible eventing system and increesed variable/picture cap (compared to later makers). The only thing that I think is really missing is a ”Draw text...

    Check: Which actors turn in battle?

    Is there a way to check which actors turn it currently is? I'd like to call an event to change the actor portrait to one that is slightly pushed up (The default portrait is slightly smaller than the required size, leaving some transparent pixels to allow for this at the top). Basically, I'm...

    Bigger animations in battle?

    As the title says, I’m curious of any work-around that would allow me to play/show larger battle animations where every frame is about 148x148? I also wonder if it’s possible to play animation with more than 25 frames somwhow (stringing together animations perhaps)? I know the default...
  13. Can someone help me figure out how to make temporary buffs?

    I am making a game right now, and I figured out that inns also revive party members instead of just healing (where did inns get magic beds) so I need to repurpose my church. My idea is to give a stat buff to the party to make towns with churches main grinding areas, but how do I make temporary...
  14. Countdown Timer Not Working Properly.

    Hello, I am currently making a game in RPG maker 2003 and I am trying to set up a sequence of events where when a timer is done counting down the game ends (pretty standard stuff.) However, I've tried many things and googled it and cannot seem to find a solution. There are a few things I have...

    Calling Common Event on Defeat?

    So I've noticed that there's an option in the RM2k3 battle settings to run a common event instead of an automatic game over. I'm attempting to use this option to create a sort of slap-on-the-wrist for losing battles: if it's a regular enemy encounter, then the player gets ejected from the area...

    RM2k3 - Subcategories for Items?

    I'll get to the point; I'd like to have the items separated into categories similar to RMMV. A menu for Consumables, Armor/Weapons, and one for Key Items. And if possible to just have the Consumables interactable(Viewable) in combat, though if that's not possible it's fine. I'm not sure on the...

    Is it legally okay to export resources, edit them and re-import them?

    As title says, I'm wanting to export some of the base resources, edit them, move stuff around etc. and then re-import them. I tried searching the forums for this and reading the EULA along with the license stuff but, can't seem to find something about it. I only ask because in the newer versions...

    Commercial games - what do I need to do?

    It seems that RM2K3's EULA is a little different from the later RPG makers. What I'm curious about is, if I make a commercial game (maybe even more than one), do I need to do something other than purchase the software? I'm asking because I read this and this makes it sound like I need to e-mail...

    Parallax Mapping - center a picture?

    Like the title says, I'm having problem centering a picture onto a map. I've tried the two most obvious solutions, being setting the picture at 0,0 (upper left corner). That would've worked in MV but it doesn't in RM2K3. Then I tried dividing the picture size by 2 and setting the picture that...

    White Screw Shop (Shiro neji-ya) material - legal?

    I'd like to know if anyone knows if the RM2K3 resources (there are other resources on that website as well) on the "White Screw Shop" webpage are legal (made and shared by someone, and not rips?). White Screw Shop Website <--- linked website, it is in Japanese so I've requested the terms of use...
