I’m very sorry, I don’t know the exact terms, all I know is that for scripting in xp, vx and ace it is used ruby, and in Mv is javascript, and in 95, 2k, and 2k3 you can’t script. Those differences can influence some people’s choice of which they prefer to use. What is a better term for it in English then, scripting language?

RPGmaker works on eventing, which is closer to pseudo-code than anything at all, and it's baby-tier. All engines handle the same eventing system, except small modifications; but they're essentially the same thing.
The scripts are done by interpreter, and they're not related to the core of game making at all. You can do a game without even touching that.
The difference in scripting languages is that Mv is thought for retarded shit like smartphones while the other engines are thought to be used in a real computer, but it doesn't really affect the making of the game unless you want something really specific which isn't natively supported by the engine. It doesn't seem to be OP's case anyway.

Oh, I know that, but thank you anyway. I just had forgotten what name was most commonly used for it. I know three languages and sometimes when writing my mind gets a bit messy and I forget words or terms and try to get away with using something that seems like a synonym, or at least understandable to readers.

>It doesn't seem to be OP's case anyway.

Probably not but decided to say it anyway as I’ve seen some people make a choice based on that.

You're talking with someone who handles 3 languages constantly too (4 soon, maybe more one day). The best you can do is to translate the word you don't remember from your native tongue with google or something.

>Probably not but decided to say it anyway as I've seen some people make a choice based on that.

I mostly pointed it out because there are legit faggots out there who call eventing "programming" and think each engine is different on that level, when it fucking isn't. I remember when there existed some kind of fashion to say how harder XP=> engines where compared to 2k3=<.

Hello all,

Hope it won’t be out of line if I post this here. I’ve been working on a kind of Yume Nikki derivative game which tries to apply that kind of wandering structure to loose and colourful collage worlds. It’s a little more compressed and lacks the effect system but I hope it will appeal to people who enjoy exploring strange digital rooms. It is a paid game alas and costs $6. You can find it here: http://harmonyzone.org/10BeautifulPostcards.html

Wishing you the best in your travels,

They have a announced a new Rpg Maker
https://www.rpgmakerweb.com/news/842-mznews_20200611

From what is known right now I'm not sure whether it will be worth getting it, as it seems to be mostly the same as RPG Maker MV, while being incompatible with its scripts/plugins (And I've changed engines already too often on all of my projects). On the other side it seems that it will offer more eventing options similiar to the old 2000/2003 versions and it is also claimed that there will be some big new feature that many wanted. Supposedly there are some leaks, but I have no idea where to find them.

 No.1029

Yeah I saw the news on the rpgmaker forums. I won't be getting it anytime soon that for sure. I got MV like about a year ago and just now I'm finally getting the hang of it. I don't see myself paying 80 bucks for a new rpg maker engine anytime soon, no matter what features it has.

I've been told of sdl. I'm sure I wont' get anywhere though. The trade off of doing everything the hard way will cause no work going into creativity, knowing this I never get motivated to learn code. It's why there's an engineer that tells the code monkey what to do. I resent it all.

What can you do with wolf that you can't with RPGmaker?

I tried getting into RPGmaker myself last year, forgot which one I dl'd. I set myself a very small goal of making a game where you bake a cake by walking to all of the ingredients in a room then putting them in the bowl in order but I got stuck and gave up because I didn't know what exactly I was doing wrong, it was pretty frustrating. When these problems happen it's like being in math class as a kid again. I don't know if I give up too easily or if I'm not smart enough.

I don't know how much this information will help you anon, but it should be known Wolf come with a complete English manual which explains what the game engine can do along with, some troubleshooting, and other such helpful stuff.

(P.s if your going to get Wolf get the bundle it comes with a graphic synthesizer which is needed to make custom characters.)

 No.1026

I personally find Rpg Maker 2003 to be the most comfortable to use.

Wolf Rpg Maker has a messy interface while the Rpg Maker XP is more restricted when it comes to eventing and relies on scripting in Ruby.

This is Realm Walk of Soul, a YNFG-Like game, where you you play as Iris, a short haired pale girl exploring dreamy worlds, interact with weird NPCs, experience surreal events and solve puzzles, in development since 2013.

Have you found games that look way too similar in the Yume Nikki/RPG Maker&Misc circles? What do you do when this happens to your game?

It's been ages without news about Realm so I assume it's dead. I don't think it's bad to copy an abandoned project, it's still odd, though.

Ambitious projects often die abandoned when it comes to Yume Nikki related stuff, just look at DvD.

The social media still indicate the game is still alive, but im sure some development hell is happening.

I was also very interested in the development of Realm, but this is what happens when you deal with "professional" studios, to keep development active for so many years is expensive, studios will always give priority to small projects that produce quick cash, not long term experimental things, I've seen it over and over, it was a stupid desicion to make the project so ambitious.

Look at this disaster, I also assumed they abandoned it like it happens with most YNFGs and almost all of the ambitious ones and lots of the people who followed it are already disappointed.

I don't doubt in the good faith of the producers, but whoever's specificly in charge of the public image of Realm should be fired.

Its not dead at all believe me, but dayjobs are so time consuming and energy draining we had barely little time to work on it, (we need the bucks to eat and have a floor to sleep).

Also many stuff changin in both creative and administrative things have turned lot of stuffs upside down, but we managed to find a way.

But as of today, I can assure you, ubuu people, that REalM is close to completion.

I'm currently figuring out some concept for a challenging boss battle for my game.
It's an exploration game similar to YN, so you don't really fight throughout the entire game, you dont gain exp, you dont increase stats, you just solve puzzles most of the time and collect effects. First i was thinking of some turn-based sans-like action but scrapped it, since the player might just be too weak to kill the boss with brute force. some bullet-hell dodging stuff ala omega-flowey sounds alright, but it needs some more of a catch.

Are there any amazing boss battles you remember that didn't require any grinding or leveling? I really dont want this stuff in my game. However I want a heckin painful boss battle with some out-of-the-box-thinking

Since the beginning of the year I've been working on an indie game. I just released a first (short) version in early access mode on Steam. Please consider playing it and let me know about feedback for the final release (planned in spring).

The game is about a college student who gradually alienates from the social scene and ends up becoming consumed by his thoughts. His behavior becomes more and more erratic and in the end there is a climax.

Hi, this drawing is an old concept art kinda inspires on Yume Nikki's ambience and Sluggish Morss Characters.

I wanted to realize it but I'm noob af trying to develop a game.Recently I'm doing new concept art so perhaps don't gomma be a problem. But I need tips for getting involved into software like RPG Maker and PixelArt. Also a way to get more clear ideas forbmy game.
