1. 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...

    Manics patch - is it "legal"?

    So apparently there is this unofficial patch for RM2K3 that's called the "Manics patch". This is not some old hack that was made a long time ago but something more recent that was made after the engine was re-released on steam, as as we know they also patched the EULA when they did so. Allowing...

    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...

  13. [Rm2k3] Quick question about decimals

    If I'm calculating something in an event, or if the damage dealt to a character comes up as a decimal, say 3.5 or something, does Rm2k3 round the number up or down?

    RM2K3 ChipSets

    So, i've been wanting to expand my game and not use the ChipSets that came along with the engine itself but I don't want to be using any that are provided from actual game rips, so if anyone could point me to some free to use ChipSets that is on the forums here, or an alternate link, I would be...

    Problem fixed! So, it's been a few years since I've used the software. I've gotten a new computer and decided to reinstall it. When I decided to do a playtest, the map I spawned on turned to water. As if I hadn't edited it at all. Thinking it was just me not knowing how to do things, I started...
  18. [RM2k3] Massive screen scroll jitter persists

    First of all, hello to all of you! I'm new here. I used to use the unofficial RM2K3 translation as a teenager, and now I'm using the official release. However, when I scroll the screen at "normal" speed, it jitters massively, almost instantly causing eyestrain. This happens whenever I move the...

    Regarding those FSM Ship Tiles...

    So, I'm not sure if this topic is supposed to be here but since I'm referring to the ship tiles made by REF MAP for RM2K3, I couldn't think of a better place. The tile sheets for RM2K3 are extremely messy to begin with, like a jigsaw puzzle, and these ship tiles are no exception. For reference...

    Switching a held item's usability from unusable to usable? (RM2K3)

    Hello everyone, I'm extremely new to these forums and am having a great time using RM2K3. Much of it is very intuitive and what isn't usually has a simple answer that's easily looked up. I have run into a problem, though. In the game I'm working on, the player finds a book, but the character...

The Dark Toon art style is now available as Steam branches. (Both for the main game and the demo)
There are 2 versions. One only affects combat, cutscene, and portraits. The other one changes more.
