Right now, you can redo Ace and at least to some extent, MV to make it work to make VNs with RPG elements.

Will you be able to make VNM work to make RPGs with VN elements or VN with RPG elements?

And minigames. I'm a huge fan of Kinetic Novels and Novels with Choices and Sound Novels. However, I'm also very much so a fan of VNs with minigame and RPG elements.

OP is asking if Visual Novel Maker, new software coming out soon, will be customizable with plugins or whatever like Ace and MV are.

Basically I'm asking if I can do some major reprogramming with Visual Novel Maker coming out soon(tm) like I can with Ace and MV so that I can add RPG elements and minigames.

Archeia mentioned the Princess Maker games in relation to the maker, so... hopefully? I am also interested in what this brings to the table asides from a pure Visual Novel engine--not that it doesn't look nice from what we've already seen (because it definitely does) but without some flexibility it goes from "must have now" to "when I can afford it".

They did say you could use JavaScript and/or CoffeScript.

Hi there, we stated this in VNMaker Steam Store Page but I'll reiterate here just in case!
SCRIPTING AND EXTENSIONS OF USER-INTEGRATED FUNCTIONALITY: Visual Novel Maker features Scripting, the ability to add new mechanics or functions in-game, and Extensions, the ability to modify the editor to add your own commands, to give users full control!

1.) VNM supports plugins made in CoffeeScript or Javascript. Similar to RPG Maker using JS to add new features.
2.) VNM also supports Editor Plugins. What makes this different from RPG Maker is that you can program new features for the editor itself. This means, if you want to change how an event command works and have the editor reflect it, you can. If you want to a new command or tab, you can do it.

I hope that answers your question. :)

Rough week, but in the end there's light in the darkness.
Mental health is an issue I wish was taken more seriously.
Take care.

This is not something I'd ever even considered but wow! What a way to use music in a game.
I am a complete fool. I went through the trouble of making a clone sprite and setting up a system to have the characters flash, when it turns out - I never noticed that the "._mainSprite" was the actual bitmap being used. I'm happy since that makes compatibility easier, but I also want to scream.
Synchronizing bust and sprite expressions! Plus using a phone behaviour :kaopride:
