RPG Maker 28th Birthday : Release Something Event

rmbdaybanner2fin

It’s RPG Maker’s birthday and you’re invited to join in the celebration!

Both RMN and RMW are hosting a dual event that is known in both communities – a Release Something event!

The aim is to release a game – either complete or demo – before the end of the event… but there’s a twist! You are also encouraged to release a trailer of your own, or someone else’s, games!

If you manage to release something by the end of the event on RMN you’ll receive a special badge worth 75 MS! If you manage to release something on RMW you’ll receive a special badge as well! In addition to these badges, there are prizes for different category winners, as drawn by random.

After this event we’ll also be running an event to play and review the games that are released for this one, so look forward to it!

To participate, visit here!

Player comfort is a major thing to pay attention to when it comes to designing video games nowadays. RPG’s are no exception either. And inside of RPG’s, the player is usually within a battle a large portion of the time. And for this large portion of the time, players are often waiting for battle animations to finish playing.

This plugin adds in the ability for players to choose how fast they want battle animations to play from inside the options menu. From the default speed, which plays one animation frame per four real frames, to the fastest setting, which plays one animation frame per one real frame, the player now has the option to choose how quickly things progress in battle.

YEP.162 – Advanced Switches and Variables Tutorial – RPG Maker MV

NOTE: This is a tutorial made for the Advanced Switches & Variables plugin.

Many of you have asked what are some more ways we can use this plugin. That’s a very good question because there’s a lot of things you can do with this plugin. However, instead of giving the answers to every single example, it may be better for me to give you the actual Eval codes themselves and the description so you can figure out the things you can do with it, instead. There will be a “possible use” example listed just to give you an idea how things may be used. Hopefully, upon reading the descriptions for each one, you may come up with some ideas or answers to what you are looking for!

YEP.161 – Lunatic Pack – Passive Condition Cases – RPG Maker MV

Passive States can be a powerful addition to a game, but if they are always active throughout a battle, they can be a little too powerful. Sometimes, you will want to limit the extent at which your passive states will be active by imposing conditional cases upon them. If all of the passive’s conditional cases have been met, then the passive will become active. This plugin adds a multitude of conditional cases for you to be able to use in your game and limit certain passive states from having their effects active at all times.

*NOTE*: This plugin is best used with RPG Maker MV version 1.5.0+. You can still use this plugin with a lower version number, but you will have a much harder time altering the plugin parameters without it.

An Announcement

Heya, all! How’s everyone doing?

I’ll have to cut to the chase a bit and deliver some bad news…

As of late, I’ve been overworking myself (again) and the signs have finally started showing up for the past week. I managed to haul myself to the doctor this morning to get a check up and I may end up getting some serious health issues again if I don’t keep this overworking in check. The good news is, this time, I’ve caught it early ahead of time.

I probably didn’t realize it, but ever since Tigress and Chickie left the team and I took over their spots, the amount of extra work started to build up again. Across the course of a half year, combined with my full time day job, I’ve ended up reaching that overworked status again. ><

As you can guess, I may have to cut down the amount of work I put into RPG Maker again, but for health reasons, I’ll be taking a small break this month. I’ve already taken a sick leave from work for the following two weeks after this one so I’ll be doing the same for RPG Maker…

That is to say, I will be finishing the plugin scheduled to be released this Friday for you all. But after that, it will be until January before I start working on RPG Maker again. With that in mind, I will be making some changes to the usual routine coming January 2018, though I’m unsure of what just yet. Naturally, I will go through it with you guys first so that nothing will be a complete surprise.

I also want to thank you all for your continued support and passion! Being able to share this passion for RPG Making that we love so much is what drives me to constantly work on new plugins and whatnot with you all! But beyond that, I would also like to remind you all to mind your health. Don’t let it suffer. Getting enough sleep, eating properly, and maintaining your body is just as important to your game’s development as your own passion. Passion is a double-edged sword that drives us forward to making progress but also blinds us to our limits. Remember to keep your passion in check and take care of yourselves, too.

I’ll be back now and then to post some updates on the situation. Don’t let me spoil your holidays and be sure to have some fun, too!

The event timer is often used for countdown purposes. However, sometimes you would like to have a bit more control over it, such as being able to pause and resume the timer, increase or decrease the seconds, minutes, or even hours on the timer. Don’t want a countdown timer? Why not have it count upwards instead? Experienced Lunatic Mode coders will be able to add in their own plugin commands, too!
