I was using RPG maker when suddenly my pc got frozen so i had to turn it off and on again, but when i opened my rgp maker again the page of my game was missing.. if i try to open my game again it said it's impossible to read the file... what can i do? I really don't want to lose the game i was doing i've spent so many hours on it

I think everyone had a situation like this... this is why you always need to backup your project from time to time. You can try to paste exe and default files from newdata folder, like in manual update. I'm sorry to say this, but you probably won't get it back.

make a backup, so when it happen again, you always have a backup.
if you save from time to time, (or every 10min, which I have on default),
you dont lose much data if it happen again.

but I'm glad you got it working it again, happy rpg making :)

If your game is on itch you can host your workfiles there privately and set them to not be downloadable. That can save you a lot of headaches if you want a separate, offsite backup. Personally I have an offsite backup solution for events like these

I have been enjoying a game on my iPhone, called Wonderbox. It is just a little game where you create adventures, share them, whilst also being able to play others. It's a bit zelda-esque. I have started some youtube for those, gonna start with RPG maker things soon as well. So if you wish to see, do check it out :)

I feel QSprite for MV is underrated. I basically am able to use my chibi sideview battlers I drew on the maps and have all the motions available. this'll help a lot with cutscenes.
I've figured out how to reasonably tall-ify chibi sprites on my editor. I like that making tall sprites gives me control on expressing how tall characters seem on the field relative to each other as well as better differentiate adult sprites from child sprites.
doing some wacky experimental stuff in MV right now :kaoluv: I cannot wait to drop what I've been working on
