    Hey everyone, the latest version of RPG Maker MV is here!

    We would like to remind everyone to make sure to do the following steps before updating to ensure that when the update happens so your changes won’t be overwritten:
    • If you haven't already and are using steam to update, set RPG Maker MV's update to manual instead of automatic.
      [​IMG]
    • Make a backup of your Generator folder if you edited it.
    • Replace BGM files if you got it from 1.3.0.
    If you have an old project that needs updating, do the following:
    • Make a backup of your project.
    • Create a new project or go to the NewData folder in your RPG Maker MV root (where MV is installed) folder.
    • Copy the new js files (RPG*.js and Libs Folder) and replace the one in your -old project.
    • DO NOT COPY plugins.js (the script file that stores all your plugin settings) or it will replace your plugin settings.
    • Copy index.html files to your current project.
    • It should now be updated!
    Changelog
    • Linux export option, and Linux editor (for Desktop mode)
    • There's a tutorial feature added to the "Help" menu. It is still experimental, but it should help you to walk you through basic game making.
    • Added New RPG Maker MV Tools to the Tools menu.
    • Minor update to rpg_objects.js
    RPG Maker MV OSS 1.1 Changelog
    This is not yet merged to main until we are sure it is stable. However, if you are interested in the mobile development of RPG Maker MV, please check it out. Full details found here.

    Degica Dev has confirmed through Steam Announcements that there's a problem with the Windows users, that cannot longer open the RPG Maker MV after updating the engine. Hope this will be fixed soon, I would like to see the new "Tutorial" and "MV Tools" sections, sounds interesting.

    P.S.: Nevermind, that was quick. Now that I have the updated version, I saw that the Tutorial section needs to be translated into Spanish, and fix other issues with some words with the MV Tools.
    [​IMG]

    The name of the window should be "Herramientas de RPG Maker MV", and the button "Seleccionar directorio..." seems to be... out of place. It's better "Selecc. directorio..." or something like that to fix that problem.

    Another thing... what is the "RPG Maker MV Tools" section? How we can use it? We need to know scripting or advanced knowledge to use it?

    It seems to work now, at least it does for me.
    But what are these MV tools? Are they like plugin but for the editor?

    Hey thanks a lot for this new update very interesting.
    I had not done the last update was not interesting for me, but I'm really thrilled about this one.
    There seems to have been a lot of change in the image management and memory.

    Is that this may make it obsolete this plugin ?
    https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/preload-manager.46515/

    And am not fully understand this feature ?.
    Could someone give more details?

    This new Tools option seems very interesting. I hope it is what I think it is and this means we can make changes to the editor!

    Just a small not really important oversight: The RPGMaker version in utils hasn't been updated.
    It still reads: Utils.RPGMAKER_VERSION = "1.3.5".
    Yes, I've made sure that my core file is updated it does read "rpg_core.js v1.4.0" at the top.
    I used it to check if I had done the updating process correctly, was surprised, and had to check the files to be sure.
    You can reproduce it easily by creating a new project, going in the console and typing Utils.RPGMAKER_VERSION.


    I am also intrigued by the RPGMaker MV Tools options, and can't wait to see what it'll be all about, and maybe how to make a tool ^^.

    THUMBS UP! Linux support is really really nice - well I'm not using it myself but I used it a very long time and I'm now on OSX - so I'm always happy if I can deploy to more platforms :)

    Thanks for this update!

    Seems interesting enough. The Tools section seems to require something sold separately, based on the help page you go to when you press F1 in-editor.

    If the Smach Z ever comes out, I can get the Smach Z and use it as a handheld RPG Maker MV device and I don't have to use Windows for it.

    Yes for the new update! Although how do we actually use the "rpg maker Tools"?
    it's simply a extentions who call the said editor?
    what's are the requirement for this tool?

    So I updated, I created a new project, plopped in the yanfly plugins.... Annnnnnnnnd the project broke. It works fine pressing new game and going to menu, but going into battle causes a bunch of errors, even tho it works fine in 1.3.5 and Yanfly sample project and the tons of other projects i made with 1.3.5 and below. I use both the exe version as well as steam, i manually updated the exe with the 'full updater' and steam updated automatically. The error appears on both versions. Image below shows the error I getting. If one more person asks 'Have you updated your project' I will punch someone.... I PRESSED NEW PROJECT So yes it is updated.

    Yanfly probably needs to update his plugins.
