Gotcha bud.

Go to your Game Files folder. (The one that shows you all the sub-folders like img, audio, game.project, etc...).
Here, locate the folder that says "icon".

Now, all you have to do is make an art piece that fits the dimension of that original "icon" image file that's already there, and replace it with your wanted icon file.
(I use MV, which for me was a maximum dimension of 128px by 128px).

As far as I'm aware, you shouldn't be able tell if the icon was replaced during playtesting, but once you finish your game and all that, the icon will work after deployment.

Hope that helped : )

Why are you answering an RPG2000-question with RPGMV-stuff?


Yes, it's possible. You can open-up RPG_RT.exe with a tool for executable file resource editing (e.g. ResourceHacker), where you will now see some categories, two of them are ICON and ICONGROUP. ResourceHacker is able to replace resource-data, just use this feature to put another ICO-file in place, then save and there you go.

Replacing EXE-icons is not big of a deal, but since this is an unofficial change of the file for the game-engine (there is no other way), it theoretically could be against license-agreements you signed when buying RPG2000. This is not a legal-advice, ask an expert.

Okay so, I'm using this script, right? And it works. If you press :Y a menu should come up allowing you to choose an item to use. Nothing happens. You press :A to open the event options menu and choose "Use an Item"? The item selection menu appears. I have no idea how I set this up or why it works the way it does. Absolutely bizarre.
A woman gave me her number without me even asking for it. Then she left because she had other patients to see.
oh, hey, I forgot about all this!

my old project got abandoned after I started working too much on stuff I'd already worked on - plus, starting to hate the story I wrote for it. Then, well, a lot of serious life **** went down. I ended up moving across the country, cutting off some people, etc. - **** was rough.

So, uh, I guess I'm back for now? Funny how things work.
I'm glad I'm sticking to my guns on having fighting game mechanics in my game, from what I've read, it's not for everyone. but for the most part, I've made it so you don't have to use them motion inputs for attacks if you don't want to.
And my project's just entered the Lunar New Year Sale 2022... Let's see if it reaches it's goal of $ 7,77.
