RPG_Maker_XPA few posts back talked about trying the free open source game maker, Open RPG Maker.  Didn’t have much luck with that.  So downloaded the trail version of RPG Maker XP.  The company has a bunch of game making software.  Their newest one is called RPG Maker VX Ace.  Which costs $70.  That is one of the reason I went with RPG Maker XP while it is not the newest it is a much better price, $25.  All so there seems to be more help and tutorials. Only have the trail version which lets you use it for 30 days.  Going to play around with this to see what I can come up with.  Just might end up buying it.  The site does support Pay Pal.

OpenRPGMakerMany, many years ago friends any myself got our hands on a program called RGP Maker 2000.  It was pretty fun to make your own little game.  Ever since than thought about trying to make another one.  Looked up the programs again and over at the RPG Makers website they have a bunch of different ones to buy.  Didn’t want to spend any money just in case I couldn’t get back into.  Did so did some searching and found an open source one called Open RPG Maker.  Going to give this a try.  If I can’t figure it out will look into “getting” a copy of RPG Maker XP.  This one looks like there would be a lot more help and tutorials.

[Update] Didn’t have any luck with Open RPG Marker.  Messed around with it.   Made a small map then tried to test run and it would fail.  So text window would pop.  Forget what it says.  So decided to give the trail version of RPG Maker XP.  Which you can try for yourself > here.
