@KiraNet contrary to what @pasunna said theoretically it is possible to export to Mac from Windows.

MacOS and Windows both need the OGG format. The m4a format is needed for mobiles (android/iOS), and NOT for MacOS. And even if it were that would not be a problem because there are a lot of free programs to convert audio files (like audacity for example)

The problem of not having spaces in file and foldernames again has nothing to do with MacOS. RMMV creates HTML5-games, and that means that all file and foldernames should follow networking rules (which include no spaces and several other rules) on EVERY computer and system. That includes Windows, because even the windows override to force the browser into accepting spaces often fails. Or why do you think the spaces are replaced with %20 on every browser error- or file-message?


The main problem on exporting for MacOS on a Windows computer is that the MacOS file system contains flags that do not exist in the Windows file system. As a result the export from the Windows computer will show up as a folder and remain a folder when transferred to MacOS, simply because the flag that tells the Mac to display and handle the folder as an MacOS-app is not present.
And it needs someone experienced in the workings of a MacOS system to repair that afterwards - until then you would have to manually enter the folder to select the gamefile to start, something that is otherwise automated on MacOS as soon as the folder is declared as an APP.

When you thought you'd be finished with the grid, and spend ~8-9 hours on an arrow. How is this more difficult to than player movement?

Still some bugs hiding in there, but it's nearly complete.

I'm having it strictly follow the path a user draws, because there will be booby trap and other similar mechanics where you want to avoid specific cells.
I feel like banging my head against a wall every time I want to find that post that shows all the plugin header codes. Then I think "next time I find it, I'm going to bookmark it". Then I think "wait a minute ... maybe I bookmarked it last time because it took me so long to find it". Check bookmarks, and there it is :)
... a few of my main characters standing around doing nothing lol. I mostly wanted to see them together on screen.
