    Hey everyone, the latest version of RPG Maker MV is here! And it's the biggest one yet.

    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 are using standalone, download this!
    • If you are using steam and did nothing, it should automatically update. Do not use the downloads from here!
    • If you are using steam and don't want automatic updates, 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 the new index.html file to your current project.
    • Update gamefont.css just in case.
    • It should now be updated!
    Changelog

    NEW FEATURES

    Whenever I playtest, I get this error:
    [​IMG]
    I'm unable to open the console (f8), so unfortunately this is all I can provide.
    I tried turning off all plugins, and it still threw this error.
    I did follow the instructions for updating (as I've done for every update prior to this one).
    I am using the Steam version of RPG Maker MV.

    @GameFire Make sure to update your old index.html file with the new one.

    I edited my reply. You forgot the index.html file.

    I did that at the start, when I updated my project.
    Edit: Okay, that's very strange. I closed MV, copied over the index.html file a second time... and now it's working.
    I'm confused as to why it worked the second time and not the first, but it's working, so I guess that's a good thing?

    For those of you who cannot remember the position/IDs of various things clearly, this update adds a handy feature.

    You will find a "Find" command in the context menu (the menu shown with a right click) showing almost all places including variable selector, switch selector, databases, map lists, map (events mode), and plugin manager.

    Cheers!

    so you gave us option to change screen resolution.
    why not give us option to fit screen for mobile?

    Just a heads-up: all of the loading functions in ImageManager have had their names changed, so this is going to break a fair number of plugins until they're updated.

    How do I update the screen resolution though? The community core doesn't do a thing. Editing rpg_core doesn't do a thing either. And since the RM 1.5.0 came out, Yanfly's core engine has no influence on the screen resolution as well.

    @Poryg as Trihan said, a fair amount of plugins will break until their owners update them. Yanfly is no exception to this rule.
    As for the Community-core, try it in a new blank project or make a backup for plugins.js file and then turn all the plugins off and check that it is working, it may be because of the other plugins that aren't compatible with the new changes yet.

    @Usaku-chan It doesn't do a thing even in the blank project I used for updating my current project. It only creates a nice black area around my game window, but the actual screen resolution is still 816x624.
    In my current project it is even better, because the whole window has 816x624 pixels, even though it is supposed to have 1024x768 and the game window has even less than that...

    edit: OK, nevermind. The game actually resizes after I start a new game, but the title menu is still shrinked.

    You need to update your graphics and maps to a new resolution. Otherwise I'm not sure what else is your problem.

    Windows cannot overwrite a file that is in use - so you need to close your project before you update its files, or some files will be write-protected due to being open

    I did close my project before updating it, though. I always do that when I'm updating it.
