Hello everyone!

I'm Nova and I'm brand new to RPG maker as a whole! I recently downloaded RMMZ and already i'm very amazed at how helpful and friendly the community is! So far i've completed the RMMZ tutorial (phew, I hope this gets easier in time!) I look forward to meeting you all! I'm a little bit of a slow learner, hopefully I can catch up to you guys one day! (I'm amazed with how proficient you guys are)

I do have one question, I'm having a hard time finding a sample game for RMMZ that will help me in a tutorial way (i've read some old posts about VX/ACE tutorial games, also RMMZ is very new so there might just be nothing out there yet). Anyone know of an unencryped sample game that i can use and learn from for RMMZ?

Thanks everyone and I can't wait to work together in the future! Take care!
Nova

RMMZ has a sample project, but cannot tell if it's really learning curve.
you can also check some games made in RMMZ and see what can be possible.

while RMMZ is almost the same as RMMV, there are some features MV doesn't have,
but as far as plugins goes, some might work, some doesn't, but hte language is the
same, so there are possibilities.

I hope you enjoy the community and we do our best to help with your issues :)

Thanks a lot! I actually did find a tutorial game last night after some digging. Can post later after I get off work! What would be amazing is to find an unencrypted puzzle game that shows off a lot of different puzzles that you can do in the engine! Farewell!

there are some nice puzzles made in MV and found on tutorial which can be used
or as base to extend later on your own.

those MV tutorial which are evented can also be used in RMMZ, however, some options
might be different like scriptcalls.

in RMMV: $gameParty.members()[0]; can be different in RMMZ which I dont know.
so if you pay attentions on scriptcalls and possibly plugins commands used,
than you are basicly good to go.

while most events in VXA works also nicely in MV, sometimes with very minor adjustments.
so in overall, most eventhing stuff from VX, VXA, RMMV also apply in RMMZ with or without
minor changes if you follow it correctly :)

Awesome! Will have to look those up for sure. Off the top of your head do you know if it’s ok to download an unencrypted MV game and “convert” it to MZ so I can play it on MZ or do I need to own a copy of MV as well? I didn’t see anything in the license of the game itself but not sure on the RTP side of things.

I dont know if that works, while MV and MZ are different in some part of reading.

That’s what I was wondering if it was legal or not. So I’ll have to buy a copy of MV to play the MV tutorial games but I can convert them to MZ as long as I own The MV license (the MZ manual explains how to convert an MV game to MZ). Thanks!

MV doesn't explain how to convert to MZ, if its a plugin or otherwise or the same,
but the data might be different, you need to read or ask if it can be converted.

I do know that RTP from MV and tiles from MV can only be used in other engines if you
own MV and for MZ materials in MV, MZ license is needed.

but on converting specific, there is nothing on MV tutorial, unless it's new :)

Yeah as far as I know it only talks about it on the MZ side. In the help file for MZ it tells you how to convert your MV project to MZ (basically copy and paste your files from your MV project into a “new” MZ project and click save with the disclaimer that some plugins may not work in MZ). Makes sense for the MV assets though so I’ll probably purchase MV too so I can play the tutorial games that are already out there. Thanks for the help!

I went to sleep at 3 am because of my anxiety. Set up my alarm for 7 am so that I could have sasagues for breakfast and do morning routine before lessons starts at 8 am. I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep even after my lessons finished because I have to visit my grandparents today I was sad bc I was really tired. Thats when I realised. My lesson starts at 9 am. I could get one extra hour of sleep if I didnt forget it
