    Hi :D . I was looking at the IG maker and some of Its features recently. It appears to be much more prefferable for making a side scroller type game.

    I have avoided buying this for while now....mostly because there's not a whole lot of support for it...including scripting and resources (however, my skill set has since expanded somewhat to making assets)....so that's not a big deal.

    1) But I do have a few questions... does it use rgss3 like ace?

    2) ...correct me if I'm wrong, but we can use RM resource packs with this right?

    3) do things like event work in a similar way as they do in ace.

    I have it, but I don't use it.


    No, it does not use RGSS3. I can't remember what it uses though.


    Yes, you can use RM resource packs, and you can also use the RM RTP as long as you have a legally purchased version of that RM engine. I think you will need to reformat them.


    I don't think events work the same way.

    o_O oh that's right! I forgot there was a trial!! I'll go do that...lol.

    EDIT: Its taking quite a bit longer than Ace to install...seems beefier. :( hope my computer can handle it. :p

    EDIT: Ok, its not letting me do the trial....weird. When click in on it pops up a window saying i need to activate it. But theres no trial option.

    the menus are god awful confusing. it would take some major tinkering and experimenting on you're part

    EDIT: the engine isn't horrible though, it just takes some getting used to.




    this demo i put together was made using IG maker. it does not use RGSS, but it really doesn't need it IMO.
