Windowskin Conversion – RMXP to RMVX/VXA

One of the most sought-after searches (according to Statcounter anyway) is about converting windowskins between RPG Makers. There are several methods for doing this, but one of the best and easiest ways is Hiper Windowskin Maker. Import RMXP windowskins into Hiper Windowskin Maker and you can convert to RMVX/VXA by selecting the parts and applying them to the RMVX/VXA windowskins, which can then be saved and imported for use. RMVXA windowskins are exactly the same as RMVX ones, so there’s no need for additional conversion. However, RMVXA’s windowskin colours (defined in the "System" tab of the Database) overrides the background graphics. For this reason, I’d recommend my RMVX to RMVXA…

Update: 3D Resources Fun

As my foray into Daz3D and Bryce continues, I’m having a lot of fun creating 3D content and scenes. I realized that Daz3D has changed a lot since I last used it – I think version 2 or 3 (it’s now up to 4.6). I also recently acquired Bryce and Poser, although I’ve not really done anything with them yet. These aren’t particularly good, but I’ve added them here to give a rough idea of where I’m intending to go. Although Daz3D is easy to use, I’m still going through as many tutorials as I can. Getting the resources – whether charsets, portraits or battlers – just right can be…

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….

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…
