    This is an automatic stripper of unused resources? THANK. YOU. I was using another program similar to this, but it was manual. And I could have just done that without the extra program running. But if this takes them out automatically, I am thrilled! Nice Work!

    Yup, that's exactly what it is :) I'm hoping to get around to updating this and improving it further soon!

    Actually, we WERE going to give you something to do this, but the OP got in first, while we were working on other things. So, yeah ...

    A first-party solution would still be way better ;)

    Thanks so much for a mac version of this! We normally get left out so that's awesome!

    How should people credit you for this in game?

    No need for credit! It's enough to me that it has helped people out :) I originally made it for my own use so it's great that people are finding it useful.

    Yeah, unfortunately I've had some issues with my hosting provider and have had to start the process of moving to a new host. It should be back tomorrow if the DNS plays nice - my apologies!

    The windows MVstripper doesn't work for me. I load it up and go through the files to my games file but it can't find my game.

    Make sure you're running MVStripper on a copy of your project - this strips assets pre-deployment.

    So the way to do it is:

    1. Copy your project folder to a new location

    2. Run MVstripper on the copied project folder

    3. Open 'stripped' project folder in RMMV

    4. Deploy game as normal

    Works fast and great! The only thing is if you use some overlays or such, the custom folders such as img/overlays/shadows may not be noticed and their content be deleted but that can easily be fixed by manually copying that folder to the cleaned up version. :guffaw: :rock-right:
