RPG Maker Comic Book

RPG Maker Rage Comics is a series of comic strips with N00bs in mind. After all, “Nothing brings more rage than noobs”. Because my scripting and resource creating skills are shamefully lacking, I could be considered as one, but I’m not a noob to the entire RPG Maker scene, and some of the things outlined in the comic assuredly typifies the kinds of things that RPG Maker newbies would say or do, taking the best (and worst) parts of “newbity” and regarding them almost with contemptuous cynicism. And it is quite funny! And, while we’re on the topic, AlphaWhelp’s Comic Book Scenes allows the use of comic strip cutscenes in…

Tutorials Series – Coming Soon

In March, I’ll be starting on a series of tutorials for RPG Maker (and other engines). This will be primarily how-to’s, using events and maps, including some already submitted by guestbloggers. This is part of my going through the expanding “To Do” list. So how should they appear? Would it be better – i.e. preferable – to provide step-by-step guides as a post with pictures or videos? Or perhaps a combinaton of both? Should the tutorials be exclusively RMXP, RMVX or RMVXA, or all three, as well as some of the other makers? What are your thoughts? Leave feedback in the comments and we’ll go from there.

Some More Updates

In between work and play, and catching up on Season 2 of Haven, which has become one of my favorite shows, there have been fewer updates to the blog. That said, however, I’ve still been busy with RPG Maker. Support for RMXP With the imminent release of RMVXA, support for RMXP may dwindle as I’ll be focusing more on RMVX and RMVXA. That’s not to say that I’ll completely abandon RMXP, just that there will be fewer updates for it. Whenever inspiration takes me, I’ll probably still post resources and links, etc. The Gladiator Project Progress Yesterday, the power went out for 24 hours and subsequently the computer shut down…

TGP Animated Title Screen Video

A video showcasing the animated title screen for TGP is now available. This is Version 1.0, where the title is static. In Version 2.0, as development continues, the title and main menu will also be animated. You can subscribe to my YouTube Channel or keep up to date with the official Gladiator Project Website. The script can be made available if there’s enough demand.

The Gladiator Project Is Back On Track

New day, new hard drive, new installation, so that means that TGP is once again back on track. Thankfully, there wasn’t as great a hiatus between redevelopment as the last time. Thanks to my friends for helping me out. I’ve learned a lot during the process, and learned a lot more by studying the RGSS3 in RMVXA. So, since TGP is being rewritten virtually from scratch, the system is a lot cleaner and the scripts are less bulky. That means that it’s easier to integrate some of the other scripts into the system. I’ll be focusing exclusively on TGP over the next few weeks so that finally there will be…

Charsets, Sprites and Facesets (RMVX)

If you’re looking for some quality sprites, then look no further than Magnus Noctem. Unless otherwise specified, these are RMVX sprites. Note: Unfortunately, this site is no longer being updated, but it still has several resources and resource links on it. EDIT:You can find some Mack RTP Sprites here. Or these Sprites With Portraits (includes some for RMVXA). Alternatively, the Mystical RTP Sprites, which is one of my favourites.

Fewer Updates For A While

Tragedy struck again! I managed to briefly flirt with RPG Maker VX to recommence work on TGP before it struck without warning. The hard drive containing my Windows died, so I’m forced to exclusively using Xubuntu, thereby disallowing me to use RPG Maker. My computer’s old and cranky, and very decrepit. Unfortunately, 2011 was not a good year for me and 2012 is heading the same. I’ll be updating RPG Maker Times only briefly with scripts and resources from other people and related sites of interest until things can seriously get back on track again.

Gender Functions Script (RMVXA)

As the countdown begins for the English version of RMVXA, there are several scripts becoming readily available. I’m not able to thoroughly investigate yet (notwithstanding my scripting abilities, such as they are) so I thought I’d list a few scripts from other people. I happened across this script, written by Mr. Bubble, completely by accident. As the title suggests, it implements a gender system for Actors and Enemies, using RMVXA’s personalised notetags function. Here’s the link to the page. It includes examples and instructions.

Ars Mechanicum & Gladiator Project Update Announcement

I made the decision to abandon Ars Mechanicum Genesis at the start of the New Year in favour of its novels. At the present time I have no interest in returning to the project, but will continue with the novels instead and place the events in the game intended as an interactive continuation of the novel into a trilogy. It’s been a tough decision but given that I’ve had little or no time to actually develop the game, there’s no point in continuing its development. I will, however, be continuing work on The Gladiator Project. This will be redeveloped for RMVX, with many of the features in its original RMXP…
