RPG Maker Portal – Discord Server Launch

Hey, all! We are happy to announce that the RPG Maker Portal Discord is open to all!

You can find the invite link here:
https://discord.gg/8wVaHRz

This Discord server has been made by me and various well-known members of the RPG Maker community such as Aekashics, Archeia, Caz, Irina, Marimo, Liberty, Liquidize, MirageV, Ocean’s Dream, Olivia, Rhyme, Yanfly, and more. We decided to pool together the quality resources we’ve hand-picked and tutorials to share for everyone, too, so that this place not only becomes a bridge to other servers, but also a center of wealth and knowledge.

Our goal here is actually not to establish a community, but instead, a resourceful, knowledge-filled server where everything gets connected and bridged, allowing all connecting communities to benefit from it. Since we’ve been in the community for so long and our individual traffic volumes are pretty high, we thought it’d be great if we could share with you all to enjoy this traffic, too.

We recognized that we, as individuals, get a lot of traffic on our own, but don’t have a Discord server associated with us. Figuring out we can use that traffic to help you all with your own groups and servers, the Portal’s concept was established. If you have Discord servers of your own be it for your teams, games, etc. and are willing to get more members to join in, be sure to leave a link in the self promo sections such.

This is also a great way to share completed and demo games as well. Getting those initial players are hard and may be even harder than creating the actual game itself. This server should make exposing yourself far easier, too. Maybe even get a few beta testers in before completing the project and/or find new teammates to help you with your goal! Be sure to share with us your creations at the self promo channels, too.

Be sure the read the rules. They’re all easy to follow and I’m sure you’ll be having fun with your stay here before you find the community you truly belong in.

Core Engine + Other Plugins Updated

The Core Engine has been updated to reenable the screen jitter bug fix. Apparently, this was supposively fixed since RPG Maker MV version 1.3.4, but apparently it’s came back. Dunno when, but it did. So here we go again.

Two other plugins have been updated as well.

Quest Journal got updated to prevent a freeze bug.

Stat Allocation got updated to fix an exploit for free HP/MP recovery.

Happy RPG Making!

Action Sequence Fast Forward/Skip Plugin by Atelier Irina

Our talented plugin developer friend, Atelier Irina, made a new plugin for purchase! Action Sequence Fast Forward/Skip!

ActSeqFastForwardSkip

     Battle Action Sequences are lots of fun to watch. But for all players alike, seeing the same long-drawn out Battle Action Sequences for the hundredth time will get old. This plugin gives players the ability to fast forward or skip entire Battle Action Sequeneces altogether and show that you, as a game developer, respects the player’s time and decision on how they wish to play your game.

     You could change the buttons to perform these actions, but from the plugin’s default settings, you could fast forward by holding down the designated OK button (Z or Space on keyboard or holding the left mouse button down). To toggle Auto-Fast Forward, pressing Page Up or Q can do that or by pressing the Fast Forward button on the screen.

     If you haven’t changed the button setup, skipping animations can be done by holding down the designated Cancel Button (X or Escape on keyboard by the right mouse button). To toggle Auto-Skip Forward, pressing Page Down or W will toggle the Auto-Skip Forward feature or by pressing the Skip Forward button on the screen.

It’s on sale for a week. You can purchase it here!

Events usually have a 1×1 tile-large hitbox. However, in some cases, you’d eventually like to have a bigger object to interact with or would like to expand the reach of an event’s trigger area by a certain amount. This plugin allows you to adjust the sizes of any event’s hitbox through notetags and/or comment tags.

Animated Loading Image plugin by Atelier Irina

AnimatedLoadingTitle

Our visual novel-loving friend, Atelier Irina, made a new plugin for animated loading images!

The loading image for RPG Maker MV is static, meaning when a game freezes, it’s hard to tell if it’s still going or not. Having an animated loading image not only tells the player if the game is frozen, it also looks better, and can distract the player from the actual wait time. This plugin lets you make a spritesheet animation to use as your loading image.

It’ll be on sale for a week! You can buy it here!
