/ig/ - RPGMaker / Gamedev aka. Indie Gamedev

What is this board for?
In a broad sense, this board is for the discussion of independent game development. This includes the entire process of development, from design to coding to publishing. Asking for advice and sharing projects you're working on are good uses of this board.

This is the trailer for a little walking game I have been doing in my spare time.

You explore a surreal world and slowly stumble upon your past memories that reveal the story. There will also be a climactic ending, etc.

I hope to release a complete version in April.

They should just try Steam, tons of exposure and anyone can get there, here is no such thing as quality control, there are tons of games that are pure RTP with terrible mapping and grammar.

Just check this out, the FIRST result while browsing the RPGM tag is a commercial game in RTP.

No wonder Steam hates RPGM games.

I decided to see if it were possible to create a Yume Nikki MMO. I noticed various issues while creating it which may help others when making their own.

* Scalability: the rooms in Yume Nikki are small so fitting a lot of people in one room would require servers or duplicate rooms. This mainly happens in Madotsuki's room where only about 40~60 people can fit (unless you allow players walk on top of each other). You can solve this by making custom rooms or by isolating players.

* Isolation: Yume Nikki as a game evokes the feeling of isolation throughout the gameplay. This mood will obviously be destroyed if it becomes a MMO. This again could be solved by making specific rooms only for one player. By this I mean the room can be accessed by multiple users but the user will only see themselves in the room and not the other users.

* Identification: I initially intended on creating a chat system for other users to talk but then I realized that a method for identifying other users would require some kind of Identification. Like a name tag or something below their character. To create something like this you would either have to make a tiny font which would be barely legible. Or break the pixel rule and put an actual font in. This often breaks the aesthetics, here's an example: https://i.imgur.com/sjeJH1S.png

While other parts like making all the rooms and events work properly are difficult they are difficult in the sense that they are a tedious task rather than a technical difficulty. These were all the issues I could see.

Aside from being potentially detrimental to the feel of the game, another important thing to consider is user interactivity. The backbone of any mom is how users can actually interact, otherwise, there's no point. This seems like a novel idea that a few people will try for awhile beforehand getting bored and abandoning it; that result seems hardly worth the effort. The chat could just anonymous. If you do go through with this, here's two suggestions. Make the color of the other users look different than the made the player Is controlling. A race type of feature could also be used where at a given starting point, every user tries to beat the game as quickly as possible by triggering events and collecting effect. Being able to see the progress of other players during this would increase the tension. Other than that, I can't think of anything else you would be able to do with the idea.

I don't think the "feel" of the game is all that important here, considering that the very nature of this project's multiplayer gameplay is transformative.

I say it's okay to break the feel of Yume Nikki a bit. If I wanna play Yume Nikki as originally intended, I already have a copy of the original.

I'm in doubt.
Are Yume Nikki tiles 32x32 or 16x16?
I have used the size for Madotsuki's sprites and it actually looked relatively small.

 No.790

16x16 and resized to 32x32 on game screen.

I tried to delve into making RPGMaker meme games but i literally can't create a tileset. Whenever i fill a tile and save it with Paint.NET/MSPaint it messes up the colors or some shiz and the tiles appear transparent in-game. GIMP works but i'm not comfortable with it and it takes ages to boot up.
What do?

 No.756

If you can't do that you'll also run into like a million problems later and nobody will want to help you solve all of them. Learn the program first and then make the game. Watch a tutorial.

In paint.net when you're exporting your png set it to 8-bit

Stop using RPG Maker 2000 or some shit, upgrade to MV or VX Ace.

 No.782

If you're making a game in RPG Maker 2000 or 2003, get Aseprite and make 256-colour images in it. (It has a free beta on the official site.)

Tried to set up Yume nikki on android to play on a 12 hour flight, but came to the sudden realization that I have no idea what I'm doing. I use the english port for yn (found on the yn wikia), and I'm not sure if that comes with an rtp. Would I need one? (I downloaded the Japanese rtp beforehand though) Also does anyone know a step-by-step guide on setting up the game?

What free alternatives to RPG maker are there and what are the pros and cons of each? I was going to use game maker but it turns out you cant export on the free version.

 No.749

EasyRPG claims to be a free, open source alternative that's even compatible with RPG Maker 2000 & 2003. Havn't used it, so don't know how well it succeeds as such.

Wolf. What RPGmaker should be. I don't know about ports.

Wolf doesn't have a saturation channel on recolor commands though, that's rather annoying.

I would just recommend pirating rpg maker, seeing as you weren't planning on buying it anyway.
