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.

No Movies in Play Movie Event RMMV – Solution

There have been a number of issues, it seems, with the Play Movie event command. Either they’re not playing or they’re not showing up in the event list, even though they’re in the movies folder. There IS no import function in RMMV, as there was in previous RPG Makers, so you now have to manually copy and paste "assets" (resources) into their respective project folders. The Problem The problem as I see it is that since RMMV supports much higher resolutions and can be used on multiple platforms, faster, higher quality graphics and sounds are almost certainly more of a requirement. Older formats are quickly becoming incompatible. So as a…

My First Foray into RPG Maker MV

Well, I’ve had my first foray into RPG Maker MV. At this point, I’m not sure if I’m entirely ready to be converted (yet!). I’m more fluent in Javascript than Ruby, so once I wrap my head around how everything is structured in MV, I might be able to write some scripts. Unlike with VXA, however, where classes, modules, etc. are separated to make scripting easier, you’d be able to go into, say, Window_Base and edit (or alias) certain things directly. In MV, however, things are bundled together into several core JS files; some settings are scattered throughout. This makes it more difficult to find specific classes until and unless…

Countdown to RPG Maker MV

There’s only two days left before the "official" launch of RPG Maker MV and I’m getting excited! This means that, since I preordered it from the start, it’ll be readily available on 23 October, 2015, at 10:00 PDT. The biggest advantage is that I actually have the day off from work, so I will start playing around with it almost immediately. And I’m confident enough in my Javascripting skills that I can eventually start on some plugins of my own. In fact, I’ve been going through a refresher course on Codecademy. It’s easier than I thought it would be; although it’s been quite some time since I wrote anything in…

RPG Maker Times Facebook Page Reopened

The RPG Maker Times Facebook page has officially been reopened after a long hiatus and it has been renamed RPG Maker Times & Projects. The decision was made primarily because, with the upcoming release of RPG Maker MV (which I’ve preordered and am quite excited about), it’s going to be an important additional asset. Not only that, it’ll be a platform for blogsite and project, particularly when the relaunch of The Gladiator Project is announced for RPG Maker MV. Updates for my RMVXA project, Otherworld, will also be posted there, along with other news about RPG Maker and game development.

RPG Maker MV Preorder & Release Date

RPG Maker MV

RPG Maker MV is being released on October 23, 2015. You can preorder your copy with a 10% discount and two bonus packs: the Cover Art Characters Pack and the MV Essentials Set. Steam or non-Steam keys will be available when RPG Maker MV is officially released. The preorder cost (with the discount) is a princely $71.99, but to me (based on what I’ve seen so far) it’s worth it! RPG Maker MV Official Trailer What Makes RPG Maker MV Exciting Previous RPG Makers (from 2K to VXA) have only been limited to Windows only. However, RPG Maker MV can now be used on both Windows and Mac machines. Not…

Preorder RPG Maker MV for 10% Off Plus Bonuses

Payday is literally just around the corner (tomorrow actually), so I’ll be preordering my own copy of RPG Maker MV. I’m surprisingly excited. And then, of course, it means I have to relearn JavaScript, not necessarily a bad thing. Hopefully, most likely later in 2016, I’ll be giving away Steam keys for RPG Maker MV in the form of a competition. At least that’s the plan. Watch this space for details!
