RMVX Ace Windowskins – Tutorial

There has been a flurry of questions about RMVXA windowskins. Essentially they are the same as RMVX, so any windowskin designed for RMVX will also work with RMVXA. As with RMVX, use the Resource Manager (F10) in RMVXA to import the chosen windowskin into the Graphics/System folder. When used in a game, they will look almost the same (see the comparisons below). However, RMVXA has additional colour settings that override the background graphic normally displayed in RMVX, resulting in only the border and cursor from the windowskin showing and the background becomes the default window colors. As you can see, the windowskins are the same, but with the background overridden…

RPG Maker Windowskins

Work on the RPG Maker Windowskins weblog has finally begun. The previous hosts have been taken down completely; instead, they redirect to this website. All of the existing windowskins are slowly migrating to this site and, when finished, I’ll be adding more as time goes on. In addition, the site will contain windowskin tutorials and how-to’s, with several more planned at a later date. These tutorials/how-to’s are planned, but not implemented yet (these will be updated as soon as the windowskins database is up-to-date): How To Install Windowskins How To Tweak RMVXA Windowskins How To Use RGSS To Change Windowskins How to Install Multiple Windowskins EDIT: These are available on…

Standing Picture Maker (RMVX/VXA)

Here is a site where you can create a full set of resources for your RMVX/VXA project. It’s in Japanese but it’s easy to figure out without translation. The site can be found here. This is an angelic character I created using the online maker. There are very few actual parts to create a wide range of resources, but you can still create some decent ones. The site also has a lot of different facesets. It’s well-worth a visit.

Windowskin Generator VX

Direct DownloadView RMVX Windowskins I found this awesome and very useful utility. It’s a Windowskin Generator, programmed by Woratana and with graphics by Aindra, for RMVX and it works! Update: Windowskins generated by this program will also work for RMVXA. The idea behind this is to make Windowskin creation easy by selecting various parts and applying them to the skin. It even has a preview area where you can see what the resultant image will look like! Once you’re done, the finished product can be saved and imported into RMVX for use in your games. Download it directly here, then extract it to the RMVX Projects folder (using WinRar or…

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"…

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…

RPG Maker XP Windowskins

View More Windowskins Here are some RMXP windowskins. Clicking on the windowskin will redirect to the RPG Maker Times Resource Center (no longer available), where you can view examples of these (and all the other) windowskins.I am not an artist, but like experimenting with different things, although I do find it easier to create RMVX windowskins than RMXP ones. Final Fantasy I Final Fantasy IX Parchment #1 I’ll try and create some more RMXP windowskins as I feel inspired, or convert existing RMVX windowskins to RMXP format.
