Sorry if this has been posted before, as the title says, I need a plugin that preloads the game as I am publishing it for a website like Newgrounds. I know there's one for MV but is there MZ version yet?

I have checked em out and unfortunately, it only preloads images, not sounds or video files.
Not the one I am looking for :(

That seems interesting, I will try them as temporary solution but if possible I will wait for one that's made for MZ that pre-load everything properly.

There is this: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...-plugins-in-mz-100-plugins-fossilized.135523/ to use MV plugins on MZ. Check if it works for using the MV plugin you want. There is a list of tested MV plugins, but others not on the list may also work.
Plugins for optimizing the underlying engine probably aren't going to work so well.

For preloaders, I think it's likely there will be mixed results. MZ got rid of the ImageCache object type, so at the moment I just am providing a fake ImageCache object for MV plugins to play with while MZ handles image loading like normal.

If the preloader is just running through a bunch of load commands real quick (instead of creating their own cache based on ImageCache), it probably will work. If it's doing something more complex who knows.

I have heard that MZ might be a little better about loadtimes out of the box, but I can't verify that one way or the other.

Some people have too strong of an opinion about what maker is the best, I've seen discussions like:
- I prefer VXAce because I like the style of the RTP better than the older releases
- You're worse than Hitler
My number one take away from this game jam is to make small games that are as polished and bug free as possible. Far less dev time, and if the game flops, it matters less because my time investment is much lower. Also, whatever ambitions I have... aim for about 10% of them. They are clearly too high, and will involve stuff that likely won't matter.
I'm finally back! :kaojoy:
A lot of RL issues happened this year which didn't let me work on Aithne as much, but I am back with new inspiration!
In that time my art style also changed a little, so I'll be doing a small art change with busts/menu art
Ops forgot to fix the hand on the weaponless sprite o_O
opening old GIMP files is a blessing and a curse because it can be fun to look at art you started once upon a time and want to finish BUT come to a total halt when you remember your past self forgot to create separate layers for most files
