RPG_Maker_MVHave not looked at RPG Maker VX Ace in a very long time now.  Well have just learned that this weekend the newest version of the RPG Maker programs, RPG Maker MV, is free this weekend on Steam.  March 16th to the 19th (2018).  Thinking about give it a download and try.  If you like it they have it on sale as well.  This version has some pretty nice features.  Like being able to put your games for phones/tables as well for HTML 5.  You can check it out for yourself > here.

Game_Character_Hub.pngBack in November (2014) talked about the program Game Character Hub.  This program let you easily make and edit sprites so you can put into a game.  It works in hand with the RPG Maker products.  Have been eyeballing it ever since then.  The only place you can buy it is Steam > here.  The asking price is $17.00.  However a few days back it was on sale for less then $6.00.  So decided to buy it.

The program works great.  You can start off going though tutorials how it works.  When though the first one. Which is pretty straight forward.  Works much like an photo editing program.  Made a quick character.  Then imported into RPG Maker VX Ace.  Was very impressed.  If you are the art type you can make not only characters but all so all the titles used in the RPG Maker programs.

RPG Maker VX Ace

RPGMakerVXAce.pngNear the end of last December (2014) had the the New Years goal of making a small game with RPG Maker VX Ace.  Well I have failed with that goal.  Have not touched the program in months.  It is not that big of of a deal.  Because I have spent my free time playing lots of great games.  With that being said.  Still plan to make one.   Many be by this time next year or sooner I will have one for people to try.  It is a very fun program to use.

There is a new version out now called RPG Maker MV.  This new version is pretty nice.  Have not tried since my computer will not run it.  It is bigger and better.  The biggest thing is it can run a lots of platforms.  The games you make can run on Windows, Mac, android, iOS and even HTML 5.  When even I upgrade to a new computer will look at getting a copy of this.

RPGMakerVXAce.pngA few post back talked about my New Year’s goal is to make a game.  Well I have started working on it.  The first plan was to go all they way though a tutorial.  Which I started a while back.  Pick up were I left off but was a bit lost since I forgot just all about the stuff all ready done.  So decided to just start working on my game.  Then when I get stuck would look up some help.  The first big thing I wanted to learn is how to setup a quest.  One of the great things using RPG Maker VX Ace is there lots of help out there.  Found a good one > here.   Have read other but this one the guy takes his time and explains the process.  As I make more progress on the game plan to make more posts on how it is going.

New Year’s Goal

Posted in Game, Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on December 30, 2014 by getbent57

RPGMakerVXAce.pngI don’t make New Year’s resolution.  How ever this year making a New Year’s goal.  Have made a few post in the past about making a game.  So my goal for 2015 is to have a complete game made and out for people to try.  Have a few ideas what the game I want to make.  The base idea is to have an exploration/adventure world with a little bit of combat.  Will be using RPG Maker VX Ace.  Started working on a tutorial back in October.  Might have to start over since I forget most of it.  Will be back with updates with the progress.

Game_Character_HubIt has been awhile since I bought RPG Maker VX Ace.   Still haven’t got into it much.  But still plan to make a game with it.  Just need to find so more time.  While looking up different help and tutorials.  Found a link on rpgmaker.net to a program called Game Character Hub.  There is a retail version up on Steam.  Which you can check out > here.  They are asking $17.00.  How ever you can still (I think) download the beta version > here.  Have not tried it yet but it looks interesting.  The program let you easy make and edit sprites so you can put into a game.  I am no way an artiest so this will come in handy when its time to make characters for my game.  You can watch a video > here or below that explains how the program works.

RPGMakerVXAce.pngGot around to trying out RPG Maker VX Ace this past weekend.  Have played around with RPG Maker XP.  Which they are both kind of the same VX Ace is much more streamed lined.  My goal is still to make a game but first need to learn how to use this program.  Found a great tutorial > here.  You can read it right on the website.  There is a download button but you have to sign up at the Scribd.com site.  How ever the user has posted a link to were you can download a PDF and a copy of the game you will make using the tutorial.   Have gone though the first 30 pages or so.  It is very helpful.  All so found another useful site rpgmaker.net.  There are lot of tutorials there as well along with lots of other stuff.
