    Yeah....This isn't working for me.  Every time I try it keeps saying "This is not an RPG Maker File!"

    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

    Thanks, I got it going.  Now if only I could figure out how to shrink the file size more. 268 MB is still kinda big.

    Yup, I've got some ideas to improve this when I find some time. Been super duper busy with my day job and other commitments (learning to drive!) but maybe I can squeeze in some time this weekend. We'll see :)

    Hey Ultima2876, I'll be using your software today for my demo of the game that is about to be released this month. Do you require any sort of credit?  :)

    My apologies! The server was down! Unfortunately they had a weird file system error that apparently almost never happens. :(


    Anyhow, it should be back up now, so please try again!

    Thank you very much for this! It'll still be a while before I'm ready to deploy my first project, but I was really worried about the filesize already. This is bound to help with that :D

    BD  GREAT WORK!


    +1 This should be included in RMMV


    I am scratching my head especially sense you said you did this in a few hours.

    This is even better than the feature "exclude unuse resource" in the RPG Maker MV

    I'm having trouble getting this to work, whenever I click on that 'select a project folder' and go to the Game's folder, it tells me that its 'not and RPG Maker MV project' What folder exactly am I choosing?

    Make sure you're running it on the project folder (before you export your game from RMMV) - I recommend making a copy of your whole project folder, running MVStripper on that, then opening that up in RMMV. :)

    You should select the folder that contain the RPG Maker MV project file ( Sorry I forgot the file extension)
