Hiya! A long while ago, my grandmother got me RPG Maker XP (i was about 7 or 8 at the time, this is during the days of Windows 7)
the files were sent to her email (butterflyema55@gmail.com) along with the order ticket.. recently i've been meaning to dive back into XP just for the heck of it, as there are so many resources available for it (namely, scripts) In addition, i am working on backing up all of my old projects from my laptop to the cloud so i can look at them, and maybe even improve or continue them! ..But uh.. we haven't been able to find the email. Is the file just.. gone? Or is there a possibility of locating it?

Edit: Forgot to mention, I believe we also purchased RPG Maker VX Ace at some point as well, when it was on sale, should also be under my grandmother's email, didn't get that till i was 11.

tHANKS IN ADVNACE. Keyboards... Thanks in advance! :p)

How long ago are we talking? If you go far enough back, Degica didn't even handle distribution of keys for XP (not sure if Ace was always Degica or if that also went through someone else previously).

There was also an announcement a couple of years ago that due to some laws (which I won't go into as I don't remember the details and don't want to get it wrong, but if you search you'll be able to find the thread) purchase details before a certain date weren't able to be kept, which means anyone who bought before that date would not be able to reactivate their products.

I suspect you're going to be impacted by one of these things, so to be honest, you're probably just better off getting it again. I think XP is now less than $20 but if you keep an eye out on Humble Bundle you could get it for less (and Ace for a really low price as well) if you're happy to get a Steam key.

Anything other than that, you'll need to log a support ticket (see Support at top of this page) - just put zeros where it asks for your product key.

3am me: So how do you feel about a character inviting their own character portrait to a tea party? =D

I turned 17 two months ago and I feel like I've grown (personality-wise) more in this 1 year than all the 16 years I had lived combined.
Ugh, I may have been cumbersomely eventing a bunch of stuff I could have easily done changing the tileset "Passage (4 dir)" and "Ladder" options. Oops :D
I have no idea why some of the program "splash screen" always on top. E.g, RMMZ loading screen stuck on the top blocking anything I want to do until it fully loaded. What is even the purpose?
One of the secret places in the game.
