RPG MAKER lets you create an original role-playing game without any prior specialized knowledge or training. RPG MAKER XP is full of the functions you've been asking for, including game data encryption and a scripting feature that lets you change the very heart of the RPG MAKER engine.

By improving the operating environment, the program can now provide support for a full-colour display and greatly enhanced graphic capabilities. With support for PNG full-color mode and alpha channel, you can adjust the settings for graphic translucency as well as specify the transparent color. RPG Maker XP includes three map layers, allowing you to create complex and layered maps. The program includes a base set of graphics and sounds that you can use and modify at no extra charge. You can also import your own graphics and sounds, making your game truly stand out.

RPG MAKER XP is equipped with the Ruby Game Scripting System (RGSS1), based on the Ruby language and customized especially for this program. Though mastering RGSS may take some time, it is a powerful tool in fully customizing your game. You can use RGSS to change how your game looks, feels, sounds and plays. If programming is just not your forte, you can turn to a wide variety of user-created scripts that's shared within the RPG Maker community.

RPG MAKER XP is perfect for beginners and experts alike.

RPG Maker XP reviews and comments

Super Program, I don't understand what others write here for bad Reviews, I have created without Any Prior knowledge with this Program in an Hour without Tutorials the Beginning of a Game that is just mine the maybe 5 minutes of Playing time if you get bad hiring a couple of Friends has already impressed. To whom you lack the necessary Understanding for the Program I can only say: Just try everything in a test project, if something goes wrong, are just a Test project, therefore the World does not go down, if bad it is created endlessly loop, then just Game too and mö Find a Possible Source of error.

Exceptional software for people wanting to try to create a small 2D RPG without having a great knowledge of programming. (You still have to have basics if you really want to do a few things) Create your own game remake! Final fantasy, Zelda, Pokémon, everything is at your fingertips with this software and scripts on the net! A software unfortunately in English but very easy to understand. An advantage over RPG maker VX-> its price that is lower! A disadvantage compared to RPG maker VX-> lacks functionality and resource pack. But it's always a real pleasure to do mapping and imagine his little fantasy universe!

RPG XP is a software that will allow you to quickly create small RPGS in rounds by rounds, it is rather intended for beginners. The + + resources already provided, ready to use + coding system simplify, very easy to use + basic systems of the game already pre-programmed (combat, menus...) + very stable, even with an overloaded game that was spitting the software, I never had any crashing + community resources (script, tutorials, arts, sprites, tileset...) +... Bah, the community, very active--quite limited possibilities (J-RPG turn-by-turn... and that's about it)-size of sprites and Tilesets in format = > a cell = 16 * 16px) only-system script inconvenient and rather unstable-price, a bit pricey PS: I have more time to my credit than indicated on steam, long ago , I used the version "fan-import" translated JAP = > en

FOR NOVICES, a very good software ACCESSIBLE to me who does not know me in creating role-playing games on computer, I was super well surrounded when purchasing this software. It is simple, intuitive, and thus allows to leave in all the senses, creating vast scenarios and complex sets of more, Internet abound of resources as decorations but also translations for those who rebute a little to the idea of typing too much English:p (especially that it's not Super common vocabulary) If you want to do the role play, I advise it from the outset if you want to see a little and spend a few hours to make a little game for a friend, feel free to take it on promo , it's given! A good resource to keep in inventory NB = I don't think we can share it with the game library because it appears in software and not games. A good hearing...
