The size of the sprite is not limited. You can make it any size you want just add in a $inthefilename.

It might be, we don't know yet but that is the general idea (collector's item, nostalgia, or whatever you want to look at it as).

I wonder how many of those requests will translate into sales. Tons of people want things until it comes time to pay for them.

Doesn't rm2k3 have horrible compatibility problems with current OSes, or did I get that wrong?

I've got nothing against rm2k3 it just seems weird to localize a 10 year old piece of software everyone already has.

That's why they added voting. To see if people are going to buy it and why 1000 is a minimum. And yeah, it varies from OS to OS like I can play rm2k3 games fine with windows 7 but my friend in vista can't etc. That's why I didn't even bother to suggest it until I was...persuaded (trust me there were lots of arguing as to why I don't think EB/Degica would publish it)...about it in IRC.

VXAce has Ruby 1.9.2 if I'm not wrong. and RGSS3 which uses a completely different structure.
They also brought back more tilesets than just using 1 for the entire game.
They also added a new feature called traits/features in EN. This is going to be a long talk so no.
They also added Regions which can be used for so many things, they're like ID numbers painted on the map and you can do whatever the hell you want with them.

Custom damage formulas. Enough said.

They added "TP" which acts like as another cost for skill that can be accumulated to however style you want. By default using a skill. It's like some limit break bar if you want an example.

Unique Skillsets like what it was in Rm2k3. You can also make skills use common events now too.
Note tags all around the place

It's mostly because it was requested. So it was thrown into the table and so the staff just asked if anyone still wanted it legally.

My External Harddisk was unsafely removed and then it starts asking me to format it. It's a Seagate External HDD 320 gigs (I'll look for the model again later, sorry!) and when I checked it with Test Disk and Disk Manager and other various tools it say it's RAW. When I try to format it, Windows 7 gives me some crap like it's protected...

So I tried changing the registry AND in Disk Manager to enable writing. Except...it still doesn't work. It runs really slow on my laptop to get the properties or to unblock processes it disable with Unlocker. I am running out of ideas :C Please halp?

Those are some awesome sprites. What are they for?

Also sorry! I probably shouldn't have removed it but hopefully the forum will fill up again!

It was supposed to be for this fan movie game contest thingy of Zombieland. I kinda messed up though because of college so it never saw the light of day :<

Ocean I like the bg a lot.

We need more pixels, seriously!

@Segnin thank you for the naufragar crimson and EX! I was wondering if you have Naufragar Chapter 2 as well?
I remember there's also this naufragar version that uses REFMAP instead. I remember the intro was kyo in a ship making a deal with this guy to get a ticket and wins and...stuff happens. I remember most of the game but yeah I was wondering if that was chapter 2! Thanks :3

1) What are some of the successful/popular games/series made with the RPG Maker series? I figure this is a good place to start to see what I can learn from them. I really stopped playing them actively around the era of RM2K, and the main guy I remember was Lysander and his game A Blurred Line (as well as his game version of The Book of Three). That's about as far as my knowledge goes.

There's also Skie Fortress' Games that modifies the DBS greatly and DE's Solstice. If you want something simple,  I think Jman's Phantasia series fit you well because he tends to be basic with his battle stuff with the DBS. Try out Speak No Evil/Yeaster's latest Games if you want something Shin Megami Tensei inspired. What else...there's this one game but it instantly disappeared from my mind, oh yeah, Kindred Saga. Just...Kindred Saga. There's also Strangeluv's A Home Far Away, that game is pretty good!

2) Where does a newbie go to get himself started? I'm sure there's good resources around but I need help separating the wheat from the chaff. The Gaming World website has changed greatly since I last perused it and the forum has been redesigned quite a bit as well. All I see now on the front page is this blog thing and some broken code. What other websites are good to view?

Well to get started, get the program and play around with it :D If you have the 2k3 helpfile, it'll help you a lot too! Don't make your first 10 games epic, make short ones that allows you to practice switches, variables, conditional branches, show pictures, etc. If you want to try scripting, I suggest knowing the program fully for now and then nab RPG's Ruby for Dummies. I think RRR has it too but RPG has a different name there.

3) Where are the good collections of audio/visual resources? I intend to use RMVX so I'm looking for resources catering to it in particular. For audio resources in the past during my experimenting, I used sounds from Caesar III and Civilization IV, as well as pulling midis from VGMusic. For graphic resources I'm at a complete loss.

For Graphics,  I suggest First Seed Material. Go to Rpgmakervx.net as well since they have custom resources and base templates there if you want to get it. HBgames.org has one too I think. Then there's RRR and RMRK.net. Most of the time, Japanese sites are the best for resource hunting though.

4) How does the community break down when it comes to the RPG Maker series? Is there a large group of people who reject RMVX and continue to use older versions, for example?

A lot of people use RMVX. They're all equals.
