AnimGet

Direct Download The primary purpose of AnimGet (or Animation Get) is to extract animation frames for use in RPG Maker (or other animation programs). When activated, it will work in the background, taking snapshots every 10 milliseconds, which can then be rendered in a suitable graphics program, such as Paint Shop Pro. In the beginning, AnimGet was used in conjunction with various emulators, particularly the NES or SNES ones, to capture sprite or battle animations. These could then be rendered and ported into RM2K/3 for use in games. Copyrights were flouted in those days, but that didn’t stop the mass productions of RM2K/3 made Final Fantasy or Zelda fan games!…

ResHack

Direct DownloadIt appears the downloadlink is offline. Update soon. ResHack (short for Resource Hack) is a great utility that allows modification of games or RM2K/3 settings. Game icons, logos, text, individual settings, etc. can be modified to suit individual needs. For the most part, ResHack is used primarily to alter the “default” icons and in-game graphics, as well as some information about the game. Other icon files can be used for this purpose and then the EXE file is re-compiled accordingly. Note: It is against Enterbrain’s Terms & Conditions to directly modify the RPG Maker program, Runtime Package (RTP), and resources, but the English versions of RM2K/3 were never "legal"…

Dan's RMXP Tool

Dan’s ToolReview & Download Dan’s RMXP Tool is a useful utility for inspiration, which allows you to create names for characters, game titles, and a plethora of other things. The title is something of a misnomer because it can be used for all of the RPG Makers and other game makers also. (I have, on occasion, even used it for inspiration for titles for short stories!) The screenshot below shows an example of what it can do. (The skill it chose, "Cruel Skill", conjures up quite a few visuals, some of which are just cruel.) Random Title Generator: Generates game titles, examples of which are Old Birthright or Deep Spirit….

Face Maker

RMXP UnlimitedThe website and file are no longer available! What’s a character set without a matching face? Well, with Face Maker, currently at version 3.1, you can design facesets for message boxes. It doesn’t seem to have been updated in over a year, but it does its job and suffices quite well. It also does not come with a Help file – not that you need it though – it’s fairly self-explanatory. To download it, you’ll have to become a member of the RMXP Unlimited forums, but it’s definitely worth it in the end. One of the things I really like about this program is that every aspect of the…

Miscellaneous Utilities

A number of useful utilities to aid in game-making with RM2K3 have been produced, aside from the Character Creators. The following utilities are designed for "hacking" resources: ResHack (RM2K/3) – Short for Resource Hack, this great utility allows the hacking of games or RM2K. With it, game icons, text, etc. can be modified to suit individual needs. RM Reck (RM2K/3) – Similar to ResHack (above), it allows game icon, glyphs, and even logo screens to be changed. This is compatible with both RM2K and RM2K3.

Window & Scene Wizard

If you’re like me and *hate* making windows and their accompanying scenes – at least when it comes to positioning onscreen – there is a useful utility called the Window & Scene Wizard (WSW). Actually it’s compiled using RGSS and runs standalone or from with RMXP itself. You can find a demo, along with instructions and downloads, at Creation Asylum. Note: The first download site no longer hosts the files, so be sure to use the second download site instead. The WSW works very well, using the mouse and keyboard fluently to create windows. You can create ordinary windows as well as menus, add text, icons and pictures, as well…

Create Your Own Resources

Sometimes the resources that come with RMXP are not enough and you might want to create your own. There are several websites and programs that allow such customization, thus: Utilities Dan’s RMXP Tool (RMXP) – A useful tool for inspiration, which allows you to create names, titles, items, etc. (EDIT: Moved to the Multi-Platform Tools section.) Move Event (RMXP) – This utility helps with programming complex character movements, which can otherwise be very tedious. Character Maker (RMXP) – Allows the creation of sprites and character sets. (While this program is limited on features, some cool character sets can still be made from it.) Face Maker (Multi-Platform) – What’s a character…
