"Ablosultely fantastic Game Creation Tool."

September 21, 2005  |  By Karl Mercieca

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

If I said this game creation software was brilliant, that would be the understatement of the millenium. Everything in the editor is fast, easy to use and powerful in its own way..... It's easy, but not entirely easy.

Cons

No tutorial, however after an hour of experimentation you will easily find out how to work this beast.

"Best novice game-design tool out there."

September 21, 2005  |  By Stilleas

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Are you new to RPG Maker? Or have you been using an older version for years? Either way, RPG Maker XP can deliver to you exactly what you're looking for. If you've never used an RPG Maker before, this one's as easy to pick up as any other. What makes it so special is that you're given the ability to edit scripts using the RGSS system. This enables you to do virtually anything with your games.

Even is scripting isn't your thing, RPG Maker XP delivers everything that other RPG Makers have, and then some. If you're looking to design your own RPG, I don't see any reason NOT to go with this one.

Personally, I'd give RMXP a 4.95/5. Check it out if it sounds even remotely interesting to you.

Cons

As much as an advocate as I may be for RMXP, I must say that there are a few things you should know before downloading it.

Basically, many of the functions of the older RPG Makers were removed from RMXP. Many were lost because they were, in essence, useless. Others, however, you may actually miss. Upon purchasing this program, you may notice that scrolling backgrounds can no longer be done, the battle system has reverted to that of RPG Maker 2000, you can no longer change chipsets as part of an event, etc.

Pretty awful, eh?

No, not really. To reiterate, you can do pretty much anything with the RGSS system. Anything that you miss from another RPG Maker can be easily scripted into this one. And if you're not any good as a scripter, know that there is a vast array of scripts available for free download on the internet.

All in all, RMXP has only one flaw. Since this flaw can be fixed with RGSS scripting, I don't think it's anything to worry about. Just thought I'd tell you, though.

For those having the problem with the actor's tab being cut off, install East Asian language support, that will fix it.

"Powerful, versatile, and EASY."

September 18, 2005  |  By Erku

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

RMXP is quick to learn, easy to use, and powerful. With RGSS you can add almost any functionality, and the event scripting system is intuitive and fast. Compared to other amateur-level game engines, the interface is unparalleled for useability, comprehensive control, and overall versatility.

Additionally, NOTHING beats the price of this program. Yes, there are open-source attempts to do the same thing, but compared to RMXP the competition is clunky, unprofessional, and poorly supported. For 60 USD you are getting a 300 dollar program.

Cons

There are very few cons to the program. There are a couple minor bugs in this release: the actors window bug (which can be solved if you install East Asian Language support) and the Party Gold conditional branch bug which can be worked around with very minor scripting.

The program itself suffers from only a few flaws:

1) it is laggy for its power,

2) the 640x480 graphics size cap is a bit small in today's world, and

3) a few features which should have been integrated into the engine were instead left up to RGSS scripters in the community. Thankfully most of these features have already been designed and implemented by our talented bunch of scripters (eg. wrapping world maps, sideview battle systems, et cetera). Nevertheless some are so fundamental that leaving them out was shortsighted.

"A great program, a few flaws"

September 17, 2005  |  By Yami Pegasus

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

The program is layed out quite conveniently, with everything easy to access. It is simple to figure out, except for the script system, which was made to give the real programmers control.

Cons

The only minor flaw is in the Actors tab in the database where part of the screen is cut off. This should not cause much of a problem, though, if you create your own battle system rather than use the defauly, because only battle details, such as armor, are inaccessible. Also, it has some minor issues in it's handling of music effects.

"Freaking awesome, BUY IT NOW!!!"

September 17, 2005  |  By tsunokiette

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Everything about this program is a pro. In my mind it is top of the line, buy it and look forward to future contributions from Enterbrain! It lets gaming fans create their own games. Yes, this program is mainly an rpg making program, but it can be used to make puzzle, sport, adventure, shoot em up, pretty much anything! *You just need to know how.

You don't need to know anything about programming to make a computer game with this program. Its comes with a huge selection of graphics and audio. Plus pre-written scripts, so all you really have to do it put the story together.

This program combines Graphics, Audio, Imagination, and the power of rgss (Ruby Game Scripting System), with a proffesional shine.

If you don't like a particular part of the default systems (menu, title, battle system, etc.) You can create custom ones using RGSS, or if you're not a scripter, there are always event which are basicly commands you enter into the program which automaticly create script.

This program supports many graphic and audio file types, including the popular .midi and .png

*There are many communities that can help you with your game making, and some people will even write you scripts if you ask nicely [=0). You can visit these places and create teams to make games, so you can depend on others to help you.

Also, think about this. "Free to try - $60 to buy". Its only $60!!!! Most game making programs cost hundreds of dollars, this is $60. Not only is this program easy on the mind lol, its EASY ON THE WALLET!
