We will reveal more details in the coming days. Get ready to be wowed!

I guess every Thursday.
They say that after every little paragraph talking about a feature.

Windows just ended support for Windows 7 this year, so it's not surprising that it doesn't have Windows 7 support. It's a good thing I'm sort of in the process of trying to finally upgrade to Windows 10.

Also they're saying the RTP is going to be the biggest they've had in an engine, so that's exciting for me at least.

@MikePjr Yes it's the one that I'm translating for you guys.
I'm not seeing anything different in the editor UI or the event tabs ... so no manual control over mapping layers

Told you there's an entirely new menu named "layer".

But yeah, other than that, the game's window (title screen) still has the 3 same options as MV (without a proper EXIT button, the last one being "option" again) and huuuuu.. No wide screen.

Well, I'll say that I'm kinda underwhelmed, but we still don't entirely know the features unless Touchfuzzy decides to start talking. Can someone maybe translate the images to English?

If there's one major criticism I have judging by the images, I really don't like the look of that world map tileset imo.

you can actually get windows 10 for free even to this day. the upgrade to windows 10 thing from microsoft is still active even to this day.

MZ, huh. I wonder what that stands for.
Also I can already see that I'm going to be moving a lot of threads from MV to MZ and vice versa xD

LMAO we were all trolled. this is the new version? I will not be buying

Well... they barely have revealed anything yet. The official site mentions there's a lot of MZ specific features to be revealed later. But yeah, I do agree it wasn't the best first impression.... which IMO was a not the best PR move for a reveal.

Hm, yeah. Rpg maker MZ! Okay...

Two things stand out here.

“To be released summer 2020”, says the Japanese tweet. What? That’s basically NOW! Come on! Sneaky! That is way too soon guys, how am I supposed to finish my current game before then!? How eeeevil! :kaoeh:

But also, it looks so much like MV. Even if they call it RM MZ it looks like an “MVace” thingy. Like, the world map RTP looks almost identical to MV’s. The GUI too looks very similar. Very. I think I see some differences but from what we can see in those screenshots, it’s basically the same.

Quick! Hurry! Tell me something awesome about this engine so I can salvage my hype! Anyone?

All 5 Steam screenshots can be looked at 1:1 scale if you right click and select "copy image location".

Tkool website (and hinted by Steam) says database, map editor, and event commands are the big updates. Can't find any exact details on what that means, but "Layer" is promising.

I like how the tilesets are all pixel art again :) the soupy painted tilesets drove me nuts. It's not like. Great pixel art. But it's simple and easy to replicate.

LOL

Week 1: announcement of the announcement.
Week 2: "We will reveal more details in the coming days. Get ready to be wowed!" (+ 5 pictures of the engine looking basically the same as RMMV)

I'm so glad the new RMMZ "features a test play function that makes it very easy to check the workings of your game while you are creating it". Great news :LZSlol:

I see Steam says that it is for Windows and Mac, with no mention of Linux. As I don't intend to go back to Windows, I may have to pass on this one, unless that is only half the story.

if the layer menu options in the is what I expect to be this will be a BIG game changer for Rpg maker.

I wouldn't be surprised if they introduced doodas. (if you familliar with yanfly doodas)
