Happy Christmas 2015

Happy Christmas 2015 from RPG Maker Times (however you celebrate it) and a happier game-dev New Year! The winners of the Design A Logo Contest were notified of their prizes; I just haven’t had the time to update on the site yet. I will in the New Year!

Few Updates, Little Time

I’ve not been able to update the blogsite or projects sites primarily because of work. With the run-up to Christmas, I’m required to work more shifts so unfortunately don’t have much time. While this is frustrating, the money is good. It’s also a stable job. Nowadays, stable jobs are hard to find. After Christmas, things should start settling down again, giving me more time to focus on RPG Maker stuff and some of the other projects I’ve been planning for quite some time, including writing. I’d like to conclude this post with a quote from Lord of the Rings, which seems appropriate here: Well, what can I tell you? Life…

Random "Loading…" Image Pluginlet (RMMV)

RPG Maker MV Plugins

For my project The Adventures of Tryggr I created a randomized "Loading…" screen to showcase some of the locations Tryggr visited. It was originally going to be game-exclusive, but after some consideration I decided to release this publicly (along with several other plugins/pluginlets) I created. This short and simple, but effective, pluginlet enables you to use your own images for the Loading screen and randomize them to spice it up a bit. You can download the pluginlet here.

Title Screen Add-On Plugin (RMMV)

Title Screen Add-Ons Plugin (Old Version)

The Title Screen Add-On plugin for RMMV is finished. It was originally written as a series of pluginlets exclusively for The Adventures of Tryggr, but I decided to release it publicly before the game is completed. The pluginlets were eventually merged into one plugin to make it easier to maintain and update. Its main features are:

Upcoming RMMV Plugins I’ve Been Working On

RPG Maker MV Plugins

I’ve been working on some plugins for RPG Maker MV, taking FULL advantage of my vacation (back to work tomorrow), and at the same time adjusting to the way things are structured in MV’s core JS files. One of the cool things about all this digging and poking around and exhuming the code is that my previous knowledge of Javascript (such as it is) is starting to come back to me. That means I’m starting to see the correlation between Javascript and the way MV’s JGSS is structured around it. The following video showcases some of the plugins I’ve been working on. These ones are actually near to completion. They…

Pretitle Movie Plugin for RMMV Finished

Pretitle Movie Snapshot

The Pretitle Movie Plugin is now finished. You can choose the movie to play and it will run before the Title Screen. You can download it here. This is the first "official" plugin I wrote. While I’m familiar with Javascript, I’m not so familiar with MV’s JGSS, as it is Javascript but its structure for MV is a bit different. And I’m still getting used to it and finding my way around. So, for those who can use it, it’s free for non-commercial projects, but please read the Terms & Conditions for additional use terms.

Design A Logo Contest Now Closed

Design A Logo Competition

The Design A Logo Contest to win RPG Maker VX Ace and resource goodies is now closed. Thank you to all who participated. We hope to have more competitions in the future, this time to win a copy of the newest in the RPG Maker family, RPG Maker MV, along with some resources. We don’t know when this will occur, but definitely in the New Year! In the meantime, we’ll be going through the submissions and deciding which ones will be shortlisted before making that final decision on the winners. And we’ll announce them soon. For all the latest news about RPG Maker Times, along with projects, collaborations and future…

Adventures of Tryggr Troll – Offical RMMV Game

It’s now official! Tryggr the Troll WILL have his own interactive-fiction style RPG Maker MV game! And he’ll eventually have his own website! He’s rather excited, as we are! Can you tell? Tryggr is a character I created a while ago using Daz3D just for fun. Since then I’ve been creating various poses and scenes for him. When RPG Maker MV was officially released, I received my copy (having preordered it) and started playing around with the new RPG Maker. The result was a very short something, purely to test its HTML5 and Android capabilities. When I showed the wife, she became quite animated and told me that it had…

Pretitle Movie Plugin (RMMV)

Pretitle Movie Snapshot

The Pretitle Movie Plugin for RMMV simply adds a movie before the Title Screen. This could be to display the logos of a game’s creators or studios or perhaps a short background story before you begin to lure players in. This particular plugin was born from experimentation with the new RPG Maker yesterday, as I was having fun with it. I wanted something before the Title Screen to display my logo and possibly web address. The movie I used was created some time ago and I’ve not put it to much use, to be honest. So, yesterday’s efforts resulted in a very short something that, according to my other half,…

Fun With RPG Maker MV – An Experiment

I decided to have fun with RMMV and make a small web game featuring Tryggr Troll just for fun. Nothing special or fancy, just something to start getting used to it because I think I will eventually start migrating towards this RPG Maker, as opposed to VX Ace. Honestly, I don’t know what will become of this little experiment – if anything – so we’ll see what happens. Decided to have fun with #RMMV & make a small web game featuring Tryggr just for fun. #RPGMaker #GameDev #IndieGame pic.twitter.com/OeOJBNNEdj — RPG Maker Times (@CompanionWulf) October 25, 2015
