    So. Apart from the fact that I don't understand how to pack my game without all the resources showing yet, I thought that, theoretically, if all my maps are done with parallax mapping and any other add on is collected in just one tile, who plays my game shouldn't need the RTP, should they?

    The question is: if EVERYTHING is done with parallax, can I delete everything else?

    And yeah, if someone could explain the game packing,

    As long as you aren't using any of the other resources from the RTP (charsets, sprites, battlers, animations, audio...). Keep in mind that while you can map with parallax, events still have to be done in the editor, so if any of your visual events come from the RTP (flickering candles, switches, chests, NPC's, etc) then you'll either need to manually add them to the project, include the RTP, or have the player download the RTP (if they don't have it). Same with auto tiles if you decide it's easier to map them out in the editor versus parallaxing them.

    Hm. You made me remember a few things I actually cannot do without the RTP so yeah, I'll just keep working with only some of the maps done with parallax. It's my first project, y'know.

    Anyway, thanks for helping me. Can you help me with the packing, also?

    You can remove the check for the RTP by removing the RTP line on the game.ini... that way, you don't need to add the whole RTP or make the user download the RTP...

    Then just import the RTP files that you need...

    And what about not showing my resources to who downloads the game?

    Encrypt the project when compressing it.
