Events Tutorial 1 – Using Party Leaders (RMMV)

RPG Maker Times Blog

This is the first in a series of Events Tutorials I’d like to create. In this first one, Using Party Members, I demonstrate how to access the party leader via events. Not just printing out who’s leading the party in the message box, but also interacting with them and making them interact as leader. For future tutorials, I’ll draw on different sources, including my own techniques and some at Yahoo! Answers. However, if you have suggestions for future Events Tutorials, let me know in the comments below. Video Tutorial Use In Otherworld I used this method in Otherworld, where certain characters must be party leader to progress. This, when combined…

Bringing Tutorials Up-to-Date

Finally, I’ve started bringing all the tutorials on the site up-to-date, starting with the Final Fantasy Mystic Quest Battlefield System Tutorial (now including a downloadable demo). Over the next few weeks at least, I’ll try and continue bringing the rest of the Tutorials & How-To’s up-to-date as well.

I’ll go through each of them, one by one, and gradually bring them all up-to-date; this might take a while so it could spread over the course of a few months.

Exporting RPG Maker Games To iPhone, Android, Etc.

Exporting RPG Maker games to iPhone, Android and other platforms is perhaps one of the most requested features for developers and users alike. This is especially true with the rise in popularity of "mobile" devices, such as phones and tablets. As a result technology demands further needs for exporting RPG Maker games to these formats. It’s been tried and tested, of course, with some measured success, especially with RPG Maker (XP, VX and VX Ace) working to some degree on Linux/Ubuntu. A direct port of any RPG Maker to other platforms has too many technical problems to make it viable, especially since it uses Windows-reliant technology to run. There are…

Windowskins Sections Need Attention/Fixing

It was recently brought to my attention that some of the Windowskins Tutorials weren’t working. They were redirecting to the old subdomain where they were hosted, which was taken offline, so it was returning a "Page Not Found" error. The subdomain was made temporarily available again, thereby giving the person who pointed out the error and me a chance to access the site. And, as I was browsing around the windowskins section on this blogsite, I also noticed a few more errors, which I will be fixing. The windowskins subdomain will be permanently taken offline again by the end of the month, but all of the pages there will have…
