Great, just when I was running out of distractions to keep me from working on my "main" game project, along comes this. Does "published on Steam" mean that your game is published as a free game, or that it's for purchase and that you're going to be splitting the profits with Kadodegimodo as the publisher? If the former, I'm assuming I can have the entry be a Demo/Chapter 1, then release the full thing commercially. (Assuming I even win anything of course, which I probably won't!)

Published as a free game. But that is only the version you submit. You can then do what you want to with your game after that. Make a larger game out of it and go commercial with it. Expand it and publish it as a free game yourself. Expand it and ask us to update the free version we put up. That is all up to you. :).

Really we are just going to publish the free version of what you submit to your contest as both marketing for you as a developer and RPG Maker MZ as an engine. And if you expand it later and want to go commercial with it, we'll give it a shout out and stuff as well.

Hi @Touchfuzzy , a while back I had downloaded to free MZ trial and the time expired. Now when I download the event version, it comes up with this:

Does that mean I'm not allowed to enter the competition or is there a way to fix this?

Excited to see everyone's games. Thanks so much for doing this and making RPG Maker MZ available to everyone! I am going to share this on reddit.

if anyone else has errors downloading the free version, use another browser like IE

I use a mac, and was going to join in on this for fun, but don't have MZ yet. (I do have pretty much every other version of RPGMaker, including a few steam versions I bought...so I own multiple copies of these...). When I went to download it popped up with an executable file for windows, but no options for a Mac.

Is there a demo version for Mac, and I'm just not seeing it?

Trying to figure out what is going on with this. Apologies for the trouble. Will see if I can figure it out tonight when the JP team gets in.

I've merged your thread with the jam thread, as @Touchfuzzy is more likely to see your question here.

Unfortunately, we don't have a free contest version available for Mac.

Sent you a PM.

For everyone else: If you downloaded the contest version, check and see if you are using 1.3.1 by selecting Help => About from the menu. If you aren't , redownload, the contest version has been updated to 1.3.1.

If you have any trouble redownloading, please PM me and I'll take care of it.

I have a question, is the 1.3.1 going to be released for the contest free standalone version? :kaocry:

@Touchfuzzy Do we have to uninstall the previous contest version, then install the 1.3.1 version, or does running the new .exe just overwrite the old one? (Though I assume uninstalling then reinstalling is the best course of action, but just curious!)

EDIT: Tried redownloading the standalone, but cancelled it since the .exe says it's 1.3.0 which is the version I have, or was the file just not renamed?

Ah, thanks for letting me know! Guess I won't be joining that one this year. Could've been fun :)

File was just not renamed because when we put it up originally we weren't expecting to have to immediately replace it with 1.3.1 >_>. Changing the file name would mean switching up some other stuff in the backend.

It is 1.3.1 the filename just says 1.3.0. Uninstall old and reinstall new.

It's really not fun burning 4 hours looking at code and trying certain things and getting no where.
:kaoswt2: Steam seems down again... oh nevermind, it's up now
After so long, my random sprites set is complete! I wonder who could guess them all? :kaothx:

And yes, I'm doing more.
I'm thinking of devouring some tutorials for RPG Maker MV. Just all kinds: mapping, spriting, programming, ect. the whole works! :)

Maybe videos, my brother and I can sit down and watch them during one of our weekly business meetings.
