Hi!
I am going to buy RPG Maker, either Vx or XP, because of their cheaper price. I like the color scheme and the characters of VX better, but I like the mapping feature of XP best. Is it possible, and legal, for me to use the tilesets and characters from VX in XP without buying both? Or does someone know about a free tileset with a style and color scheme similar to that of the VX tileset? Thank you for taking your time to answer.

No, you need to own both the maker where a RTP comes from and the maker where you want to use it.


However, I would advice against VX and suggest VX Ace instead - Ace has a lot of improvements over VX and if you're willing to wait for a sale it's actually cheaper than VX, because for Ace there is a steam version that goes on sale at one of the steam-resellers two or three times per year, sometimes dropping the proce to 15% (off 85%).


And currently all makers are 80% off in this sites main store (only a few days, don't know when the sale will end exactly)


However, even if you own both makers, it won't be easy to transfer VX (or VXA) tilesheets to XP, because XP has a different autotile structure - those autotiles would basically have to be redone.

And while XP allows you to have very large tilesets, it only lets you have a maximum of 7 autotiles per map.  VX and Ace have MANY autotiles.  It would be a tough choice to select the ones you want to use on an XP map even before you get to the need to convert the format.

Shaz is correct... vx ace has more features So I'd Recommend Vx Ace

Hey guys how come my new plugin that I programmed so perfectly doesn't work? Oh wait.... I forgot to add it to my game's plugins. :kaoswt:
While I take a break from developing RPGs, I'm thinking of doing something I've never done before: actually playing an RPG released by someone else. Any suggestions?
Good lord this is taking forever, I'm not even out of the opening really and I've still got hours worth of work to do before I get to the main gameplay loop. Orphan of Time will probably be done some time next year, If I'm lucky.
Finally the new pc is working!! But it seems a lost my license to Windows 10 because of the hardware changing :(
